Morning Chaps!

Looking at this realistically, what line up would we all like to see next season? For me:

Bellerin, Mavropanos, Sokratis, Kolasinac
Ramsey, Pellegrini,
Mkhitaryan, Ozil, Aubameyang

Personally i'm still not convinced by that squad either but its a realistic possibility.
Aubameyang shouldn't be played on the wing in my opinion but I can't see us playing 2 up top. It's not Emery's style.
I would also rather see a quality defensive midfield player to really strengthen the squad rather than more attacking players. Pellegrini and Seri are good players going forward but not so much on the defensive side of the game. Not something we need tbh! Interested to see what you other boys think?

Agree0 Disagree1

Rather have a different rb than belrin.

Bellerin hasn't been coached properly in my opinion. Under Emery I reckon we could see him shine. Rapidly fast, youthful prospect we should certainly keep hold off.

Bit concerned about pushing Pea out on the left to accommodate Lacasette if truthful, personally if I wanted to play both I'd play them down the middle with Mesut or Ramsey in the whole behind them.
I think one of Arsenes biggest problems was trying to fit the big names into positions the players weren't best suited to in order to get best 11 names on the pitch at the same time rather than pick a balanced team.
Ramsey wide right never worked for us but Arsene wanted to find room for him as well as Caz Le Coq and Ozil in his favoured 11.
I think this is a problem that comes from having too many attacking players who are head and shoulders better than others in different positions, the temptation is always there.

Interesting times ahead. Players can look very different under a manager that sets the teams up differently, particularly in our case where the defensive side of the game can be considerably improved. Last season Everton and Crystal Palace were diffferent teams defensively after a change of manager.
With experienced players such as Lichtsteiner and the Greek Dortmund player possibly coming in, as well as a DM, things may change quickly. Bellerin can learn from Lichtsteiner. Holding and Mavropanos will benefit from the experienced Greek defender.
The options may be:
RB: Bellerin and Lichsteiner.
LB: Kolasinac and Monreal.
CB: Mustafi, Greek player, Holding and Mavrapanos.

Sell: Jenkinson and Chambers. I would retain Mustafi, to see how his form is playing alongside an experienced defender and in a team set out better from a defensive point of view.

Bellerin Sokratis. Mustafi sessagon

Ramsey. Rabiot


Dembele. Draxler

I think sokratis is done and mustafi will. Stay can't see us buying 2 new cb that will start together Leno seems a decent choice at a decent price. 22mil I think we should get sessagon he's young fast and will help with homegrown quota rabiot has been linked with us now with fabinho joining Liverpool can't see who else we can sign for. the cm/ cdm position seri has also. Been linked but he's been linked with Barcelona and Chelsea in the past then we come to. Dembele we can only sign him on. Loan and would be a decent signing and I've gone for Draxler as a wildcard unai seems to like. Him. A lot very versatile.

I'm not a fan of Auba playing out there either but saying that, he has played there in the past and is still a goal poacher despite playing on the left. Sessegnon would be excellent but he's destined for a big money move and that's not something for us to really offer. Plus being only 18 another high flying season in the championship will twitch the eyebrows of Madrid and City no doubt.
Rabiot is an interesting name that I'm surprised i missed out! A young player who was able to blossom under Emery and would be a great addition to the squad! Antoher being Maitland-Niles. He will be a star for us this season if given the chance and i can't see that not happening!
As for Dembele and a loan. Loans are poor in my eyes unless your a lower league team. That and the fact that he's fast but can't pass or shoot! Haha.

{Ed001's Note - Sessegnon will be playing in the Prem next season mate, Fulham got promoted.}

Good point! The play off's are long forgotten in my mind already!

30 May 2018 14:48:36
At the moment the names Xhaka Iwobi and Mustafi all leave me deflated at merely the thought of them being in the starting 11 but hopefully that might change under Emery and I might have a change of opinion about those 3 in particular but others too who I always feel we start a game on the back foot each time they play.
I wouldn't mind Jack Mustafi Xhaka Iwobi Welbeck all leaving but equally i'm willing to them changing my mind about them under a different manager too if Emery decides to keep any or all of them.

30 May 2018 17:39:33
So you wouldn't take Dembele on loan certainly an upgrade on Welbeck and Iwobi wvwb though he's not the finishes artocleny.

Bellerin New. New Kola



Rambo, PEA, Mkhitaryan.

31 May 2018 10:04:31
No Rambo is not playing out wide we need 2 natural wingers.

31 May 2018 18:54:08
Then him and Ozil rotate?
