Can someone please explain why our players don't shoot? Laca, Ozil, Ramsey, Welbeck all with numerous chances to have an attempt on goal and for some reason they think it's acceptable to try and pass it 'ONE' more time. We are 100% up there as one of the most depressing teams to watch as a fan! 21 years from the age of 4 I've supported Arsenal and it's a shame the greatest days were when I was so much younger. We are going to struggle to appoint any world class 'manager' but it looks as if the club is going along the lines of head coach which I think is the better option. Will be a difficult next few years Gooners as the footballing market gets ever more expensive! One day we will be great again. COYG! 🔴⚽️.

We've just got to be patient next season as there is a lot to be sorted regarding this squad not only in comings and goings but also in total re-education of those who are kept on.

Wenger doesn’t like shots from distance, he likes to keep the ball.

Arsenal remind me of a bit of myself in bed, takes me a while to get going and when I do the whole thing is over fairly fast.
They also remind me of old dags just can't get past the semi.

{Ed0333's Note - there’s me thinking Dags was a hardman

Actually think our squad is ok don’t shoot me they just need re educating Wenger has crushed them as a squad in last two seasons and I’m glad his gone let’s get right man in and move on! Thanks for the distant memories Wenger.

I'm not too sure about that Ed,
We will have to ask the man himself dags,
He is definitely hard to find when arsenal lose.

Leahy 😂😂😂
That made me laugh 😁.

Ramsey Pea Lacasette Mesut Miki Monreal apart from that I can't think of a single player who looks good enough.
Whether they can be under a different manager is the big question but I really don't get how people keep saying our squad isn't that bad. On the evidence of the last two seasons the squad is absolutely awful.

I agree our squad need some improvments, but I don't think it's as bad as some of you claim.

Ospina - Colombian int.
Bellerin - wanted by Juve and Barca, must have some qualities
Kos - french international
Mustafi - german international
Monreal -? Descent (? )
Kolasinac -? proven good LB in Bundeliga
Ramsey - wales int (? )
Wilshire -?
Xhaka - swiss int. proven good DPM in Bundeliga
Özil - german int. wc winner
Miki - proven great winger/ IF in Bundeliga
Laca - wanted by Athleti last summer, proven goalscorer.
PEA - proven worldclass goalscorer

interesting prospects.
- Holding, Chambers, Mavropanos, Maitland-niles, Wilcox, Nelson, Nketiah

players who doesn't improv the team IMO
- welbeck, iwobi, ospina, cech, wilshire.

I think it's a mather of coaching and tacticts. In both games againt athleti the goal came from unstructured defence and lack of awareness/ risk management that lead to goals. Yesterday Bellerin was wrongly placed. He should be aware of the risk of not being in line. last Thursday Mustafi and Monral "thought" Kos would handle it instead of securing for Kos.

If you look at the ups and downs of Chealsea last seasons, it gives me hope. And player by player we are not much behind Liverpool or Spurs.

I think that's what next season needs to be about Norgunner, finding out who is and isn't capable of being better under a different coach.
People will want to see improvement from day one next season and if we don't improve on this season next season some people will be saying " we may have well stuck with Arsene " really quickly but the fact is as a unit our players are pretty poor bunch and it will take time to work out who can and who can't steep up to become good enough.
I know you think lots of the squad are good enough Nor mate but if you look at your list and evaluation of the players none are premier league proven over a season either with or before Arsenal, what they've all achieved in the past is in a less competitive League or in Mesut stay case playing in a far superior team and those who have played premier league football before joining us like Danny and Miki were let go by United for a reason mate.
Probably the two most consistent players we've had over the last 5 seasons are Monreal and Kos and they will both be 32 next season so there really is a lot to sort out and we are going to need to be patient with the next manager no matter what next season brings.

Next manager guys, next manager. Maybe the players need to be reborn mentally. One or two additions by the new manager and we could be back on our feet. I always say this crop of players have been soft by Wenger.

This squad is awful as it stands, it's just a matter of what the new manager can salvage from it.
One thing is certain and that's if Arsene had seen out his final year there would be no hope at all for next season but his leaving makes everything no matter how difficult possible again.
Optimism and hope for the future are once again on the menu and that's got to be good for everyone.
