As most of the squad are injury free, team selection for Thursday will be interesting, as Arteta could actually send out a completely different starting line up to the last match:
Maitland-Niles Sokratis Holdong Kolasinac
Torreira Guendouzi
Nelson Willock Martinelli

your definitely there or there abouts mate, apart from Torreria, he was ill and did not travel, although they were monitoring him to fly out this morning, but I haven’t heard anything.

Rome wasn’t built in a day! Personally glad Arteta is making us hard to beat at least and next is to be hard to beat and scoring winners! As I say give him time! ! Wasn’t long ago we were crying out for 1-0 wins . Getting closer to the 0 part . Could have easily gone our way yesterday . That’s football COYG Oh and Burnley are no mugs just beat Leicester and man u.

1 less goal conceded in each game since Arteta arrived and we would be 4th on 40pts now.
Almost all goals are concerned ate because of someone somewhere in the conceding side making a mistake somewhere along the line, keep your own mistakes and you are extremely difficult to beat and more free you capitalise on your opponents mistakes.
The win 5 3 philosophy preferred by our 2 previous managers left us wide open to conceding multiple times in every game turning each game into a free for all shot fest.
All top teams take control of games rather than being happy to swap shots in the hope of coming out on top in a game of heads or tails.
We are finally back on the right lines Sussex and I'm very happy to see it mate.

Rone wasn’t built in a day, even though it looks like it!

Welcome to Cédric Soares.

First choice back 4:
Cédric Luiz Marí Tierney
It's been a while since we had two tall CB's and two full backs that can defend!

Bellerin Sokratis Holding Kolasinac

Maitland-Niles Mustafi Medley Saka

Next season:Salina arrives and Chambers returns from injury.

So a new defence:
Cédric - Mykola - Mari - Kurzawa
Back up:
Bellerin - Saliba - Luiz - Tierney

Wishful thinking!

Or maybe by next May you will think your back up is better than your plan A, give the manager and the players the rest of this season together and reevaluate in the summer.
What it been 5 or 6 weeks since Mikel took charge? And look at the difference already, we've not seen and Arsenal with this fight or work ethic for years and years, image what the current might be capable of after 5 or 6 months under Arteta.

I believe Arteta already knows the weaknesses and hence why we are signing a CB and are reportedly after a fullback. During his time at City he will have been well aware of Arsenal's failings and is ready to act.
He will and already has improved many of our players, but there are obvious signings and sales that need to be made.
Keepers: We have 2 decent keepers
RB's: We need a RB. Bellerin is looking better under Arteta, but AMN isn't convincing at RB.

LB's: 2 decent LB's.
CB's: Keep Luiz and Holding. Mori on his way and Saliba arrives in the summer. Sell Mustafi and Sokratis (will have a year left in the summer, so if we can obtain a fee it's worth selling him)
DM's: Torreira, Xhaka and Guendouzi.

Creative Midfield: Ceballos will return and move Ozil on, if possible. This position needs signings in the summer window. Willock.
Wide attacking: Nelson and Pepe. Others can play here, but may need one more player.
Striker: If PEA won't extend his deal, with a year left, time to sell. Lacazette, Martinelli and Nketiah.

I truly hope we get some players in now.
Boateng on loan until the end of the season. Kurzawa and Guimaraes. Both Boateng and Kurzawa for left back, Saka tries so hard, but he isn't a left back. Boateng can also play at CB. It has to be the end of Mustafi, he is dire. Whilst Guimaraes will give us reinforcement in midfield.

Plan for today and you need find another plan tomorrow, take your time and get it right long term and things seem to magically fall into place all by themselves.
What's the rush where's the panic?
The title has gone, 4th place has gone and if you put all your eggs in the Europa league basket chances are you will carry on being a Europa league team for years because you wasted your already limited funds when you didn't have to.
We have the luxury of time and we would be fools not to take that time between now and May when there will be a glut of options open to us rather than make knee jerk reactions available right now.

Hi ed002, any update on players leaving


{Ed002's Note - What?}

Interestingly most of the goals conceded since Arteta took over have been late on. Could this be due to fatigue as the players adjust to Arteta's more intensive fitness regime and his high intensity tactics?
I would imagine we will benefit more next season, after the player's adjust to Arteta's methods.

Next season we will reap the rewards of all the effort we put in the rest of this season and next summer.
Full squad of Artetta players " oven baked ready to go "

So possibly Boateng until the summer as defensive cover. Then in the summer or an outside possibly now: Guimaraes, Umpenicano (spelling? ) and Kurzawa. If so I expect Kolasinac with 2 years remaining to be sold. Sokratis with a year to go and Mustafi also to depart.
Our left backs will be Kurzawa and Tierney. Our CB's Luiz, Umpamecano, Saliba and Holding. I can see a RB too.
The situation with PEA and Lacazette will be interesting, as their contracts are running down.

My thoughts are it's the daily star reporting these rumours and once I read which paper the story was from I immediately stopped thinking about the rumour.

{Ed047's Note - thank god as we don’t need another past his best defender!

20 Jan 2020 15:14:49
Boateng is apparently only being touted as a short term loan until the end of this season to cover for Chambers and Tierney.
Next season Saliba arrives, plus we have Holding and Luiz. I would imagine we will buy one more young CB, perhaps Umpamecano. I can see Mustafi and Sokratis being moved on.
Kurwaza 27 years of age is being reported in France, as joining on a free in the summer, unless a deal can be arranged to arrive in this window.
