Lichtsteiner- signed on a free
Sokratis - signing to be confirmed on 1st July
Torreira - strong reports that this deal is agreed

Poor old Arsene was always telling us there were no players who could improve us but from what I've seen of Dick and Sven there was and is loads of players who can improve us and without spending a fortune either.
That's my immediate thoughts.

Lichsteiner - Bit of an odd one at 34, however has great experience and a winning mentality, and can give Bellerin a breather during the season.

Sokratis - I like that he is an old school, no nonsense defender. Something we probably need. I really like our youngsters coming through in that area, and Sokratis signing doesn't seem like it will hurt their development, which is great. Also, he is not Mustafi! Already makes me like him. Would also love for Soyuncu to sign and develop with the youngsters.

Torreira - Looks like a blinder! Being honest i'd never heard of him until a week ago, but I like what I see. He looks like a menace and in the mold of Kante.

Above all, all 3 mentioned are part of a defensive overhaul, something we have needed for an embarrassingly long time. I am completely on board to continue down this path and see where it goes.

Lefty77 - I agree fully on the defensive side. I couldn't understand our defensive tactics and personnel.

Good point 62 and I still love Wenger but you are right. Also our CD we signed are on loan somewhere so never really improved us.
I wouldn’t include the old guy in the summary as we would have flagged Wenger off for that signing but our approach has been better - going after what we need and having experts targeting those positions
It didn’t take a genius to do that but we’ve struggled in the past so credit to the guys

I still want a winger -let’s see how they go but the new team are being very effective.

Me too SY mate, Arsene is a top top bloke in my book both for all he did for Arsenal and as a person.
I'm just so excited about what Dick and Sven are doing and the positions we are strengthening in, its what I've wanted us to do for years so it's difficult not to get excited right now.
I realise there is no guarantee the new players will work out as we hope and things might not go as we all hope they will in the league next season but for the first time in a very long time we are accepting our weaknesses and adressing the most of obvious ones first, we are no longer in denial and living in Bucks fizz land of make believe, we are back into the real world and we are at last trying to be the best we can be again, for me that's plenty good enough to be going on with.
75 points plus next season, you heard it here first, and second and a hundred times since and will probably hear it another thousand times between now and the season kicking off too :-) I'm just a very excited and looking forward to next season more than any season for years:-) :-) :-)
Did I mention how excited I was:-)

RG me too dude. Reading stories that Wenger wouldn't allow tackles in training and apparently limited Bould's input on the defensive side, it just baffles me. i'm just so happy to see defensive recruits coming in. If we can be more solid, actually track runners and get some more communication in the back line, I think we will fly. Our attack is great, now bring on the rear guard.

That’s what footballs about 62 - excitement and adrenaline. Standing up when you think we are about to score and then “bam” we score! Then the tenseness of holding onto a two nil lead - believing we actually can. That and actually looking forward to Super Sunday as we have a chance home or away.

Seriously very happy with all the news with regards to our signing's . Was thinking that if Wenger would have continued as our manager next season, what position he would have tried to fill, an Attacking Midfielder or a Striker or some unknown French lad ( Remember Yaya Saynogoal) .
