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.

Exciting News about Pepe most likely signing. That must mean Zaha deal is dead bet he is not a happy chap right now.

Just wonder how Emery will fit them all in will he go 4 2 3 1 with Auba, Ozil and Pepe behind Lacazette that will put a lot of pressure on the 2 defensive midfielders behind. What about Ceballos he came here to be a starter would he take Ozil's place in that 3 prong behind laca? . can't see him being used in a DM role. Who are best 2 to use in DM role I would Personally go Guendouzi and Torreira but Xakha seems to be a favourite with Emery

Looks like writing is also on the wall then for Miki and Iwobi, selling them would be useful to free wages then for a CB that we still need.


1.) 27 Jul 2019 20:03:50
Ceballos played deeper whilst at Betis if I remember correctly, he could certainly play alongside Torreira and finally bring some control to proceedings in our midfield (something we've lacked since Santi) . Be interesting to see if that then got the best out of Ozil. Ozil is a class player but he definitely needs someone to get their head up and pick him out when he gets into dangerous positions, again lacking since Santi.

I also agree with selling both of those two, Nelson and Rowe-Smith are more than capable replacements and we've also got Saka coming through.



11 Jul 2019 13:22:02
How come Guendouzi is not listed in travelling sqaud to USA anybody know, is he injured?


1.) 11 Jul 2019 13:37:19
Extended holiday maybe Ryan? Hasn't he just played in the U21 European Championships with France? Same would apply for Iwobi who is still playing for Nigeria at AFCON.

2.) 11 Jul 2019 15:02:55
That will be it I expect. I knew Torreira, Iwobi and Elneny are at the Copa America and ACON respectivly hence extended breaks.



23 Sep 2018 18:07:24
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.

yeah strange he was not even in carabo cup squad last night at least, obvs Arteta does not believe he is ready yet for the EPL would it not make more sense to try and loan him to a English side then. Situation don't look good long term for him, maybe with Gabriel coming Saliba is no longer fancied long term I suspect.

I can understand having to sell Its a shame but he know wants be be gauranteed number 1 and we can't give him that guarantee. don't see the point in spending all sale money on another number 2 to replace though what does that say about Macey surely we need to start being confident in him being number 2 now?

Elneney yes but I think with the current defensive side injuires we aleady have we would be unwise to to sell Mustafi and Chambers. Would be open to selling Miki though also to make some cash.

Daft but let's be honest if he is available, willing to move to us and affordable hard to say no really for such a quality player. My only logic to it is that Emery is trying to Force Ozil in particular out. A loan swap would not be bad idea tbh.

There is always plenty of good attacking talent availble if you are prepared to spend big but availble quality defenders are much harder to come by.

If we could sell Miki, Iwobi and Elneney to raise funds that would help maybe get around 35-40million at a push for them 3. Plus hopefully 8-9 mill For Kos that's close to 50Mill then for a quality CB and good saving in wages.

Cant realy see this happening atall unless its a swap loan deal perhaps with Ozil which would be interesting? we pretty well stock attacking wise with Pepe coming in., CB and Tierney now seem the priority.

To add if we keep our senior players in particular PEA, Partey and Odegaard fit and Arteta can get them confident and motivated consistently I think we can still get into the Europa places 6th for me is our best effort. (Piping one of Leicester or Spurs most likely although West Ham and Everton in the mix also) That would be a big achievement this season and one we would all bite your hands off for right now.

Yeah mad we were the biggest spenders and yet have we really improved the first 11 to take up a level, time will tell I suppose. I am staying positive that Odegaard will come good and Lokonga looks to have talent so we have improved the midfield area a little. I was not too concerned with Willock leaving think he was only ever going to be a fringe player for us. Keeping Party fit though is key to give a solid base from which to attack.

Defence is still a concern especially the RB position This Japanese player is a complete unknown and no idea if will fit in seem a bit of a last day panic job to me to replace Bellerin with anyone. Why did we not try for Trippier with a swap with Bellerin + Cash I would have be far more comfy with that. I get we were properly not a first choice over Utd. but he wanted to come back to England. White is a football playing defender good on the deck but don't think he is the type that will ever really command the box in the air for set pieces and that is a still a big weakness for us. Physically we are still liable to be builled at the back. Ramsdale maybe our future long term number 1 but we had a keeper that did command the box a lot better than Leno in Martinez but let him go, crazy move that. Just seems we have wasted a lot of money right at this moment on future potential.

Attack still has plenty of goals in it with the right service but we have to get PEA confident and firing again and play quicker on the counter. We not going to attract the really big names no more up front but do think someone like Ings would have been a decent shout. We really do miss Giroud as he offered a different option and that the type we really need to make the most of crosses that Tierney in particular sends in that gets wasted.

Time will tell I suppose but not it don't overly exactly excite me the transfers atm. Not sure how much game time Taveres will get maybe he will be used at Right back if Bellerin goes, althuogh I would be more up for a Trippier swap (+ cash or lacca) as he would be good addition.

Lokonga done quite well so far but like you say not sure we will oust Xhaka and Party when fit so I can see him being a sub more than starter, so ads depth but again does it elevate our lvl not really

Odegaard let's hope he can live up to his potential with us I would not want to stiffle ESR's progress for the sake of it. He does create a good few chances though so I am relatively positive with this one as there is class player there I feel, if Arteta can bring the best out him though unsure.

Ramsdale -- He Could potentially be our no1 long into the future so on that basis could turn out to be a good deal, just seems a lot right now to pay for a second keeper.

White - Just not sure he will be the answer to sort our defence, for me needs another aggressive leader alongside him, White seems a bit lightweight for me arially certainly. For me he adds depth and yeah better than a liability like Luiz but does not really improve the 1st team much and for 50Mill its a lot to pay. I would have rather we spend that on a Strong DM.

Overall its 6 OUT OF 10 for me as it stands.

Yeah definitely selling Martinez was big screw up he clearly should have been our no1. Leno has never really impressed me in any game at best he puts in average 6/ 7 out of 10 performance were he saves what you kind of expect him to save really, but he has made plenty of screw ups along the way that have cost us.

yeah not saying White is bad player but in the cold light of day do you think he will really elevate us that much and make us more solid now defensivly overall if it were a Vaharne with his experience and leadership different story a defender like that would make a big difference to us. Just think White being still quite young is not that type and needs a leader alongside to get best out of him. If it were 20-25Mill I would think ok decent enough addition to strengthen squad depth but at 50million its a lot for a defender even in this day and age the money would have been better spend eleswhere.
