Will be interesting to see how Lucas Perez gets on in the pre season tour. Was kind of discarded by Wenger and not given a real chance. Emery with a clean slate has given him another chance, could he be the answer as a wide player for us?


1.) 23 Jul 2018 15:03:10
perez was a really wierd one! why did he buy him then not give him a chance?

2.) 23 Jul 2018 15:41:58
Eden, kalasinac, gabriel could be added to that list, along with others. Ultimately i don't think perez will cut the mustard but it does beg the question why did we buy these players?

3.) 23 Jul 2018 15:51:48
yes! those 2 were also odd! yet some other players imo got too much of a chance, there was some very odd decisions the last couple years.

4.) 23 Jul 2018 16:59:27
Think wenger said he signed perez because he was unsure how long welbeck would have been out for, so once he came back perez lost his chances to play and instead of using him as competition he was simply sent out on loan.

5.) 23 Jul 2018 17:24:49
Perez was a strange signing yes at the time but you have to a least give him a chnace to prove his worth which Wenger never did loaning him straight away. Kolasinac I though did well when he first coem into the team so to me is stil worth squad member he is better going forward than Monreal but not as good defensivly so a good option in a 3-5-2. Players like Jenkinson, Campbell, Iwobi and Wellbeck are the ones we need to dispose of first as they are clearly proved not good enough long term.

6.) 23 Jul 2018 20:57:39
Perez in my opinion was a silencer for the fans and it worked too, despite knowing nothing about him people went Perez crazy predicting all kinds of things despite never having seen him play.
On the field the signing made no sense because he never got a chance but as a PR exercise it worked brilliantly.

7.) 23 Jul 2018 21:59:51
What's really good this preseason is no one has gone new signing crazy especially over players they have no idea about, I think things have become much more realistic since Arsene left, I'm not sure why that is because I don't think Arsene particularly talked new signings up in arrival or over predicted great things from them but there does seem a lot more calm reality from fans this summer than in previous years.

8.) 24 Jul 2018 12:29:37
I like Perez for his intensity. Hard worker. I would say he is an improved Walcott. Maybe not a starter, but a decent squad player. Falls out of games some times.

Not sure how we won this game as so many players were poor but 3 points is all that counts. Cech was our best player really with some fine saves so plenty of work still to do. Torrira was decent but again not sure what Xhaka brings to table really, he was not terrible but had little effect in the game. Ramsey was also poor, is no way worth the 200+k he is reported after. We still need better balance in the midfield in order to have better connection with the front players as they were isolated today. Having both Ramsey and Ozil in same side is too much of a luxury.


1.) 23 Sep 2018 19:03:05
He is a fraud ryan, the sooner Dick sees it the more chance he has of doing a good job.



18 Aug 2018 18:25:13
Crazy first half 2-2, Defensivly all over the shop but we keep getting in behind to create chances with in the box and could have easily been ahed as had the better chances. Torreria needs to come on for Xhaka and Bring Lacazette on for Miki or Ozil. I don't think you can have both Miki and Ozil play without being to exposed in the midfield as they are never going to both get back in shape quick enough.


1.) 18 Aug 2018 18:42:50
Well Dick looked out for the count but somehow he's back on his feet ( I'm not quite sure how)
He needs to use his time in his corner to sort himself out big style because he won't survive in the premier league long swinging wild windmill punches and putting and no defensive savy.
He is looking more like Dick Turnip that Dick Whittington by sticking by Xhaka who is more of a cart horse than a hansom steed like black Bess :-)

2.) 18 Aug 2018 20:36:24
Tick tock for Richy Paper.



28 Jul 2018 14:39:12
Should Eddie Nketiah be promoted to 1st team squad and Wellbeck sold. I know we only tend see him in cup games or friendlies but he impresses me everytime. Much more dangerous than Wellbeck.


1.) 28 Jul 2018 15:39:04
On the Nketiah front I definitely think so. When was the last time Arsenal had so many promising and exciting youngsters in the system? Nelson especially looks every bit the part. Hope he sees his fair share of first team action this season.

2.) 28 Jul 2018 15:48:08
Yeah some promising young players like Simth-Rowe and Nelson question is can Emery turn that potential into reality long term because it seemed that Wenger lost that ability late in his reign.

3.) 28 Jul 2018 16:34:39
Wenger has left a nice legacy for Emery to build on.

4.) 28 Jul 2018 17:22:16
We need some youth players to actually become premier league regulars who other too clubs wish they had again. Fab was the last youth product that had others drooling over him while in an Arsenal shirt.

5.) 28 Jul 2018 17:31:14
Eddie might get some league cup games, along with a few others that need big boy games to see if they are big boys or not.



21 May 2018 20:32:17
Sad day to see Cazorla be released. One of fav. Arsenal players of recent times and when he was fit made us a much better side overall, miles ahead of Ramsey and Xakha in my view at his best. I Personally would have liked to give him a 1 year extension to see if he could get back to his best after his injury nightmare. Maybe it was a mutual thing though and Caz thought the EPL would be perhaps to quick and physical for him now?


1.) 21 May 2018 22:09:06
Couldn’t agree more Ryan, my favourite player and really sad to see him go. He wasn’t one of the cosy club and wanted to go out and win.

It was him who got us to play so well against City when he got Coquelin sat next to him in the base of our midfield.

A class above all our midfielders and I hoped he got another 12 months too.

{Ed025's Note - shame really stoner, very good player and always played with a smile on his face which makes a change from most of them mate..



03 May 2018 22:12:57
Well it all over bar the formalities. I just never fancied us to to score to be honest. It is clear tonight we need better fullbacks that can actually cross well as it kills us when we rely on them so much for our width and they can't get a decent ball in between them. The whole defence and goalie needs sorting.


1.) 03 May 2018 22:52:56
We need a top class CB ESP with Kos out probably Christmas time. A top dm. Top winger. Top goalie. And like you say at least one full back.

I don't think you can slate the team too much It going to take time for Emery to stamp his authority and methods on the team and take a couple of transfer windows at least to get all the personel he wants. As a squad overall we lack natural wide players all our midfielders are central based and our fullbacks are quite poor in offering delivery when out wide and often leave us exposed also. I think until we get proper wide men we should go to 3-5-2 (3-2-3-2 it be more precise) but focus on our central core strength and not use the fullbacks as wingbacks as that is our main weak area.

Use Lacazette and Aubu to pull out wide when required when attacking with their pace and energy to get any crosses in from one particular side of play. In my view there is no point is using fullbacks/ wingbacks to take up two spaces to try and cover a weak area when it would still be exposed anyway against the good teams with them in anyway as they are too poor defensivly anyway even in
back 4.

yeah there needs to be a universal football window accross all leagues to make it fair I Guess that would mean them all starting their leagues at the same times approx. which could prove tricky to implement. It is good in a way that it is before the start of season as more business is done earlier which is good for pre season prep but now European clubs have the advantage and can still unsettle the english club players for another couple of weeks.

Gunner62 Some moves being made behind the scenes perhaps that the press have not picked up maybe a experienced CB on loan, as we have not really got the funds for anotehr major purchase without sales so loan deals could still be a option.

Looks that way seems like Emery does not rate Chambers that highly really then if he prepared to loan him out.

Wire - with a year left on his contract we not going to get anywhere near 50Mill for Ramsey 30Mill tops and that might be pushing it tbh. Ramsey is a bit of a oddity in our side as he is actually one of the few offensively that are better without the ball than with the ball making some really good runs in the box he is kind of what Lampard used to be like in that sense. Yes he is a decent player but we have better in Ozil for his preferred position and he is replacable without doubt with equal or better with targets we could get. Maybe it is not down to money so much maybe he is not keen on the demands of Emery, and misses the protection of father figure Wenger and if that is the case good riddance we need all of them 100% on board and behind the coach. Out with the old cosy club and in with the new.

At this moment no game is a gimme and although we have won a few on the bounce now every game has been hard work and have been vunrable at the back in all games. I think we would be a lot more effective playing both Lacca and PEA together as two central strikers and just one central AM (ozil or Miki) in behind with 3 more combative midfilders further behind in Torrira, Eleney and Gounduzi. Ramsey has been poor and is no where near worth the 200+K he is after and we are still plugging gaps out wide by playing him there leaving the side unbalanced.

24 Sep 2018 10:21:52
Yeah I think you can only play one of Ozil. Ramsey or Miki in the single Central AM role 3 into 1 does not go, as when you try and play more than one of them the team is to top heavy and unbalances the side. We should play both Lacca and Pea up front Emery then needs to pick one of Ozil or Miki behind as a AM, Sell Ramsey tbh he is not worth 200K+ he wants.

Then have 3 more combative midfielders behind in Torreira, Elneney and Guendouzi. We have no natural wide midefilders so we are still trying to put players out there that are better more central.

To get into a midfield of a Top side which we are aspiring to be again you have to offer something that can make a difference either from a defensive side or offensive side. I could live with Xhaka being poor defensivly if he actually was offered something offensivly.

To me a midfielder should be either be skillful on the ball and can beat a man (Ozil, Miki even Iowbi in and out can do this) , have good pace and a dangerous cross if out wide (This one type we don't have as proper wide midfielder) make good dagerous runs off the ball and make those deeper runs into the box to find space (Ramsey can do this) , make regular defense splitting passes on the ball (Ozil) , a great reader of the game on the defensive side who picks up all the loose balls (Guendouzi looks to be of that Ilk) or a strong agressive but clean tackler that can doninate physically (Torreria type) . You need to be someone that effects the game not just run around a lot or make simple 5-10yd passes else you not Top team material.

Xhaka has none of these qualities of any significance that a shown on a any regular basis and to me is largely just a body on the pitch who can make simple passes, the only thing he does have is the occasional power shot that is not enough.

Leno surely has to be given his chance Cech did not look comfy one bit. Hopefully Emery's patience with Xakha is also wearing thin. I think Emery needs to decide on one number 10 out of Ozill Miki or Ramsey and play the two up top just ahead of them.
