To the question of where we predict we will end up next season.
Well I predicted a squad with names we never really heard of before for next season and mid table I'm afraid.
So far we have Kolasinac on a free that I never heard of. Lacazette I heard of but really just through the rumours that built up since the end of last season. that's as far as we have got up till now.
Mid table! Yeah why not forget Sanchez he can't work miracles on his own all the time. I just don't get Ozil I'm missing something with the hype that surrounds him. So far and let's be fair what we've seen if Lacazette in the friendlies isn't impressive and how long is he going to take to settle
in? . So I'm preparing myself for a rocky ride next season with plenty of moans and groans and Wenger Outs again! .
Horrible thoughts I know.
Best player I've seen so far is Reiss Nelson can we keep hold of him? I wouldn't even put him out on loan I would play him let him develop with us. I hope Wenger plays him on Saturday and our opener against Leicester.

Shocking and we play Friday not sat.

Can't know much or watch much football if you don't know the players we brought in neither were unknowns.

03 Aug 2017 08:28:45
5th again maybe 4th unless we buy more players we ain't got a good enough squad for the bpl title.

03 Aug 2017 09:01:42
Jelfy we play Saturday in the Charity Shield, aside from that Lansera I don't agree with you.

My post was in jest the other day about Lacazette, anyone who puts weight to an argument after pre season friendlies is a bit daft otherwise Bayern Munich will not be winning the Bundesliga and getting knocked out in the group stages.

Lacazette hasn't been here 5 minutes and Kosalinac looks a great addition in an area we needed to strengthen.

Whilst I believe Sanchez will go I'm not losing my head over it.

There is still over a month left in the window to move players on and bring others in. Everyone bar Sanchez has a bad season and that includes Ozil but he is class.

We will not be struggling to make 6th, we are not mid table or even close.

There is so much negativity around here it has even spread to ed025 but we really are not the utter rubbish a lot have convinced themselveslves and others that we are.

{Ed025's Note - my view is not negative stoner more realistic, city, utd and chelsea have stronger squads and liverpool spurs and possibly everton will be battling arsenal for that 4th spot, liverpool look good to me and would probably be favourites for 4th and that leaves you and us for 5th berth...dont ask me to choose mate.. :)

03 Aug 2017 09:23:00
Ahh I'd never ask you to chose ed but personally I'm certain we'll be in the top four and that's being realistic, strengthening on paper doesn't always translate to the pitch especially when you are buying many.

Liverpool still look good going forward but not so good at the back. Spurs are standing still. None of United's signings have filled me with dread.

Chelsea need more depth but City will for me be the team to beat. It will be interesting to see how the Toffees do ed with money to spend.

{Ed025's Note - making lots of signings will not automatically make a team sronger in the short term stoner i agree, i guess im just being a bit pessimistic where arsenal are concerned as i dont wast to build up any false hope mate..

03 Aug 2017 09:29:36
im with eds as it stands battle for 4th. if i'm the board i'm getting two players in min possible three to give us the best chance.

im happy with the two signings but need more.

{Ed025's Note - there is still time derby i suppose but im with you on the need to add more mate, last year was seen as a blip but if it happens again then its a crisis and the top players will want out...and thats a very slippery slope..

03 Aug 2017 09:31:47
We won't finish lower than 7th or higher than 4th in my opinion
As much as all our problems of the past decade won't suddenly disappear and players who have never been consistently good enough suddenly become capable of challenging Niether will we suddenly become Stoke West Bromwich albino or West ham level.
The big boys have improved and have managers with recent proven track records of success and Spurs were way to strong for us last season and will continue to improve under Poch.
Nothing has dramatically changed at Arsenal on or off the pitch so why will our end result be different?

{Ed025's Note - fair point mate..

03 Aug 2017 09:35:55
It's not just the teams on paper that have changed Stoner other clubs have managers who demand success and a board and fans that expect them to build a team capable of being competitive.
Everything is different at Arsenal compared to other big clubs.

03 Aug 2017 11:17:49
gunner I really don't blind myself to our short comings, we are perpetual under achievers for various reasons, I just, after one season outside the top four, don't believe that will now be our lot.

We are much better than that, if we repeat it again this season then I may jump on board the we are pants band wagon but I'm not having that now. We have signed two very good players in positions of weakness with I'm certain more to come.

I'm liking the 3 at the back and Koscielny, Mustafi and Holding will be great back there.

I believe we'll be a minimum of top 3 mate and I'll think we'll have a bloody got go at the Europa too. 😁.

Law of attraction please try and stay positive guys.

03 Aug 2017 13:06:21
Fair play to you Stoner I hope your right and I'm wrong mate, but I can't see how anything at Arsenal has changed too much other than we have 2 good editions and are going to lose our biggest asset in the next few weeks.
I just think other clubs have more ambitious steaks running through them and managers who simply have very high expectations of the players and the people who employ them.
At Arsenal it's all become a bit too relaxed and a title bid would be nice but it really isn't essential for us to all carry on as per usual.

03 Aug 2017 12:34:04
Much respect ed 25, always appreciate your contribution but I think you are too negative on us at the moment. First, if we can just have a normal number of injuries instead of the absurd level of last year, then our depth will match the top 3, for rotations etc and surpass Everton and Spurs. Second we have added some key pieces to help fortify the new formation. And third we were already looking much improved the last half dozen games last year. Count me in on this year ;-)

Prediction, win the Shield, deep runs in Europe and FA cup. And in the mix of a tightly grouped top 3 in the league, with one of the favorites dropping off BC of chemistry or injuries, guessing Chelsea, a battle between Blues and Spurs for 4th would suit me fine and if Everton pips the man both, all the better!

{Ed025's Note - you paint a very rosy picture rooster and i have to say no one would be happier than me mate if that came to pass..
