Forget about transfer rumours and speculation for a second. Let's get some real talk going here about what this clubs prospects are for a season 11 days off.
Here's the stark reality.
We can achieve 7th this year if these players and manager play to their potential.
This manager is looking down the barrel of sacking via fan revolt in three months and nobody realises it yet.
He's had his transfer window, he's had his preseason. He's done all his big talk about what Arsenal need to do to get to where Arsenal need to be.
Yet we are looking at the same clowning around as always and we are looking at yet another year where this club has not bought the critical players in an effective or aggressive enough manner with which to bed them in via pre season so they and the team can hit the ground running come game 1.
Leno. Good shot stopper, on the ball however he's Horrendous, over indulgent and there seems to be an arrogance beyond my capacity to understand that someone who's made such embarrassing and glaring errors historically that cost the team CONTINUES to take the same risks. Can I keep blaming him? Nope. Arteta is either not working on this or can't see the fallacy in what he's persisting with. yet continues to select him.
Bellerin. I just can't. But he continues to select him and he actually wore the cpts armband last season at one point.
Elneny and Xhaka. Can't head. Can't tackle. Don't have the energy levels to get around midfield. Don't pass forward even when it's on or when they need to be taking risks. Hasn't worked for years. Yet in 2021 Arteta has them still paired together there yesterday and we will be looking at them now vs Brentford with Partey potentially missing 6-8 weeks.
Kolasinac is still at my club and getting walked around by Tammy Abraham even after Abraham has played 70mins and your fresh coming on the pitch.
Aubameyang. On an 11 month run of shocking form where his shot conversion rate is only bested by his ineffectiveness at every other facet in the game.
We are to hope that the signing of Ben White, Tavares and Lokonga are going to be the difference that propels this Club to where Arteta claims 'we should be'.
Think on that for a second.
Nothing is changing here with regard to approach or tactics. The same glaring shortcomings are their for all to see. It won't take a Guardiola to rip this team to bits because even when their not getting exposed 5 times a game by long straight balls over the top allowing 1v1s, they are sabotaging themselves with recurring acts of complete and utter stupidity that induce the loss of brain cells to anyone unfortunate enough to bear witness to.
In November just gone this team we're in 15th under this manager. He had to turn to Martinelli, Smith Rowe and Saka before the squad began to raise their level and match the youngsters. That's how close he came.
Now he's in a position where he and the club have categorically not addressed our issues. We bought a back up for the one area we were strongest, LB with Tierney and Saka as cover. We bought a CM in Lonkonga who still won't be picked ahead of Elneny or Xhaka who we couldn't even shift for 18M and we bought Ben White after a season where we were defensively sounder than usual but shipped a 30M quality defender back out on loan as we continue to find new and creative ways to lower the resale value of our players.
What's going to change this season?
I would argue the manager will be the only thing.

Good post Shambo completely agree.

I'll admit that I am jealous that varane is joining Man Utd. I know it's the arsenal page but Ed001 do you have a profile on varane and if not, your quick thoughts on him signing mate?

{Ed001's Note - if there is a profile it will be well out of date by now as I don't remember doing one. Quick thoughts is he is quick and strong but not very good positionally. Good on the ball but I don't see him as a special talent, I don't understand the big deal to be honest.}

Fantastic I've been on the sofa for 4 nights and I spoilt Mrs raver yesterday as it was her birthday with a gift card for Annie summers, 3am this morning the living room door opened with her all kitted out in the gear she bought from the gift card, got to sleep at 6am this morning and a trip to DFS is booked for another sofa and the boomtown rats said they didn't like Mondays well the raver loves them 😍.

If Ellen White was a mens footballer I wonder how much she would be worth, excellent striker.

I've never watched a second of women's football. Imagine the days when people are crying out for equality more than they are now and we end up with mixed teams.

27 Jul 2021 12:54:44
Physicality will probably always prevent mixed teams mate.

Personally I just appreciate watching people who are good at what they do, and Ellen White and Lucy Bronze for me are outstanding footballers.

30 Jul 2021 20:11:00
Can’t do it. If I want to watch second rate football played at a snails pace I go over the Orient.

What are people's views on Arsenal getting their own "All of Nothing" series on Amazon?

I've never seen a fly on the wall documentary at a football club where the manager came out looking good. Bredon Rogers was completely baffling in the one at Liverpool a few years back.

18 Jul 2021 11:18:55
My favourite is Orient: Yours for a fiver. The managers, John Sitton and Chris Turner didn’t come out well! They sacked Terry Howard, who was the longest serving player and fans favourite, during a match at half time! They said to him that’s the performance that broke the camels back, your done. I was at that game, and TH was playing well as far as I could see, and seeing as they were bottom of the league, I really couldn’t see how you could tell his performance was so far worse than the rest. It’s a great documentary, and most don’t come out of it well IMO, including Barry Hearn, who at one point can’t even remember the name of the existing club owner, ie the man who he is going to buy the club off.

Unless it's heavily censured it will expose more chaos than it reassures and raise more questions than it provides answers and understanding Epping mate.

I the words of Julia Roberts
Big mistake, HUGE! 😊.

I wonder why Arsenal have agreed to this?

1. For money

2. Because Arteta is super confident

3. To raise the club's profile = more money

4. Ignorance

5. A N other.

19 Jul 2021 15:08:39
Obviously I'm going to watch it either way. I genuinely think though this is another nail in the coffin of the Arsenal we all know and love.

16 Jul 2021 09:49:59
I know the summer break is for relaxation after a long season. The body needs to rest etc.

However, am I the only one that thinks Willian ( nothing against him ) is showing a little disrespect coming back with a pot belly to pre-season. Especially after the season he just had and that he should be a role model. Forget the money he's on.

I really thought he's cone back and want to show he's still got it and wants to earn his shirt.

Frustrated with Willian. Anyone else? Are my expectations to high? Look at KT - complete opposite. Surely Willian should be showing our youngsters to ropes.

So definitely mixed feelings from me today. Ultimately massive disappointment that we didn't win last night, but also very optimistic that our national team appears to finally have a group of very good players who want to win, and that we are now back where we should be, amongst the top national teams in the world. Still being involved in the final stages of each tournament is second nature to the likes of Germany, Italy, Brazil, Argentina, Spain etc, but for too many years we have gone into tournaments as has beens. Now I feel we have a group of players that, if allowed to play, can get us to the final stages of any tournament, and once that starts happening regularly, the chances of actually winning it, although not guaranteed, is much higher than any other time we have witnessed in recent decades.
