Only Alexis Sanchez makes Paul Mersons Arsenal and Chelsea combined best 11.
Apart from Kos it's difficult to argue with it or even make a case for any of our other players.
Or is it? Any takers for this one?

It's early days dags but the only other conceivable shout.

I agree Sanogo, good shout Dags but too soon to say, a few weeks back people were declaring Holding premier league ready but few mention him at the moment.
Kol is of course much older and much more experienced and does look an excellent prospect but much like Chambers Debuchy Mustafi who all hit the ground running when they joined us we will only really know about Kol at the end of this season if he is the real deal.

15 Sep 2017 20:59:15
Agree. We could even sweeten the deal and throw Lacazette in there.

Our 2 new boys are looking like our 2 best players.

But, like you said, early days.

Honestly watching holding last year I thought god we have an absolute gem here but he's been awful thus far.

15 Sep 2017 21:56:51
A lot of our younger players seem to lose confidence after bright starts. Chambers jenko holding iwobi and bellerin have had serious loses of nerve and belief.

15 Sep 2017 22:10:15
Is Moses better than bellerin?

15 Sep 2017 22:28:24
True Sanogo,
Early days yet mate.

15 Sep 2017 23:30:05
Well, Moses parted the Red Sea and Bellerin can only part his hair, so yes.

A combined eleven serves no purpose whatsover and last season's results confirm my thoughts, as despite Chelsea arguably supplying 10 of the 11 places, we beat Chelsea 3-0 (League) , 2-1 (FA Cup final) and penalties (Community Shield) , whilst only losing once 3-1 (League) .

I belive we have an excellent squad, bar a top CB and DM. Most of our players are current internationals or in the case of Cech and Mertesacker have chosen to retire from International football. Top teams were reported to be interested in many players if they were available or affordabale.

I believe that our current squad, with the couple of signings mentioned, would be able to compete at the top level if they were managed by Mourinho, Conte or Guardiola.

Keeper-wise - Cech is a legend, but we need to look at replacing him. I would have kept Szczesny to see if he had matured after his loan to Roma. Ospina is not my cup of tea as I don't like short keepers. I would try and sign Butland next season.

Defensively, we have a decent back four - Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny and Kolasinac. We need cover at RB and at least one CB, such as Van Dyke.

DM - We need a player such as N'Zonzi and arguably a second proper DM. Playing attacking/ creative midfield players in this position simply doesn't work.

AM - Sorted. Many options. I would like to see if Wilshere can come good.

At - Sorted. Lots of options.
