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.

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.

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 gunner62 Wenger messed up Walcott too much playing him on wing, to me he is classic 2 up top playing on the last defender with a big target man and walcott feeding of the knockdowns.

Good deal I feel all round for Martinez he gets guarantee 1st team action Villa get a keeper that may well keep them up this season and we get a decent sum for a keeper that come 6 months ago would have been lucky to get 2M for and give us a chance to continue to strengthen elsewhere.

Great debut from Gabriel good no nosense stuff you can tell already nobody is going to easily get the better of him physically and in the air. Willian also decent with two assist and will give good competition in the forward areas with Pepe now.

All were pretty decent to be said Eleney also give him credit for a strong display despite being his first start for us in ages. Fulham were pretty toothless really nice passing around not much else from them harder tests to come but good signs.

We certainly need to sell a few first before anymore possible incomings. Ozil is clearly not in Arteta's plans at all but he will see out his contract on such high wages. It's a shame as Ozil still has lots of quality to offer and can still be a game changer just that number 10 no longer fits in with Arteta's style now to accomodate him.

I think we will be able to sell LT Sead easy enough as long as we don't value to high and they both seem keen to leave back to Italy and Germany and the clubs want them. Papa looks close to leaving also but that will only be for a couple of million at most. Our biggest assets for sale are Bellerin Lacazette and Guendozi.

Geundozi happy enough to sell especially now with Ceballos looking like coming back on loan, but don't seem to be many takers

Bellerin also I happy to sell if it means bolstering that midfield and with AMN and soares at RB position

Lacazette not sure about really as it puts a lot of goalscoring responsibility on PEA so if he god forbids gets injured we could be in trouble on that front . Nketiah Willian and Pepe are not what I call regular reliable goalscorers and Martinelli is long term injured atm.


{Ed047's Note - I think as always we want all the changes done in one window built think we are going to have to live with the fact that's really unlikely to happen.

Ozil is just a strange one, started in all Arteta's games initially and after, it seems, he would not defer any of his wages didn't get picked at all.

Such a waste of talent.

Indivdual errors proved costly again and no amount of tactical clever play can account for such sloppy errors. I did not really get taking Pepe off he was our biggest forward threat really up to that point and we seemed to get all ragged and disjointed after that change. Yeah missing out on Europe might not be bad thing to re-enforce the need for personnel changes.

We are turning in mid-table mediocrity very quick and if drastic measures are not taken it will take a very long time to get out of this malaise. Hopefully won't get as bad as Leeds and regulation but can never say never and we need to act. At moment we ain't attracting big players that for sure Wolves and Leicester are ahead of us in the queue atm. So for me we need to get back to basics first build hard no nonsense English defence with some backbone and leadership and poach some defenders from the likes of Burnley, Sheffield Utd and so on. let's get tough and hard to beat first then work from there. I hope Arteta is the right man but still have my doubts tbh.
