Whatever happens today, i won't draw any conclusions, its too early and while a win would be great, a loss isn't the end of the world. Perspective is needed and a bit of patience. Patience with wenger had worn thin but we must give Dick some time to make us consistent. I still think we will struggle for a while in the league but the europa dopa is what we can target. Its a long long season. 1-1 today is my prediction.

About as tough an opening two matches as we could get. I will be happy if we avoid defeat today and would take a 1-1 draw now!

I agree 100% Steve, should we beat City today we won't suddenly become challengers and the same if we get beaten we won't suddenly become mid table struggles.
We are most people's and the bookies underdogs of the big clubs for a reason so this season is all about improvement and making sure we go into next season a little more fancied than we are right now.
Today is all about getting our first real look at life under Dick and getting a glimpse of what to expect from him and the team regards shape effort performance, a point would be brilliant and 3 an unbelievably brilliant start.
My prediction 1 2 unfortunately but I've never been a top match day tipster.

Agreed but that’s why I am a little frustrated with Emery already as I wanted him to revamp the back 5 plus spine completely and use his “getting used” to the EPL” to bed HIS team in. We didn’t need a 25m goalie but we do need a better CD, CM options, Winger and a fullback.
The fullback (34 and a freebie ) is not a great long term solution nor is the centrehalf especially with where Kos is in his career plus Mustafi. I just think he scratched the surface and implemented an OK strategy having clearly identified the issue. That’s not great management and not as decisive as Wenger in his first few years. I will give him time, support and patience but I don’t think he has taken full advantage of the situation and done enough.
If we had 100m - why Dembele and not a world class CD. If we were truly After another - why leave it so late. If we had the funds - get it done. We should have signed an EPL CD.

I am excited and really looking forward to seeing the NEW arsenal under Emery and also just seeing the Arsenal play.

Let’s not undersell ourselves - we’ve got a great attack and added two midfield GEMS that should change us completely in midfield - hopefully we get the real Özil in the new system.

Aubameyang- golden boot ( already put my bet on) . This Guy is awesome and the sort of signing we need at the back.

Hopefully we see

Bellerin, Sokratis, Mustafi, Maitland-Niles

Torreira, Guendouzi

Rambo, Ozil, Mkhitaryan


COYG! We are all 100% behind you.

Get the excuses in early.

I see where your coming from SY mate and if it was me in charge I would have done things differently too but maybe Dick is going to work with the players he has for a season then replace big time once he is fully aware of those he can and can't improve, which would explain the quick fix just for now signings.
To me a keeper wasn't top of the to do list either but it was certainly on the list as Cech wasn't brilliant last season.
There are players I would have let go who Dick has kept on and players like Campbell and Chambers who I would have kept in my squad that Dick has let go but we all see things differently and the most important thing is with Dick we have hope again that things might improve for us however he goes about doing it.
I know you miss Arsene mate but under him we were going nowhere but backwards in the end and just imagine the total apathy there would be surrounding the club again going into this season and more empty seats and a totally negative vibe at Arsenal and totally negative vibe about Arsenal from everyone everywhere.
Change brings hope mate and the club needed both change and some hope desperately because fans been slowly giving up and losing interest in the club for years while others were rapidly drifting away through lack of all and any hope of anything ever changing under Arsene mate.
Arsene is the greatest manager we have ever had beyond doubt but in the end he was making optimism an impossibility for far too many people to find within themselves.
I can't think of a nice way of saying this but in the end Arsene was toxic for Arsenal football club and I know that sounds horrible but it's unfortunately true.

62 mate - I am more than happy with the change and how the club handled it. Very classy. I don’t miss him - i wanted bigger change once he left.
On the keeper - hindsight could show it’s a steal and genius signing.
Centre halves - we look short on numbers, pace and quality.
Fullbacks - Wellbeck? Really

When I sign up for change - I want to see it. For me changing the personnel is the easier bit than changing our mentality and defensive spine.
I am repeating myself but wanted to stress I don’t miss Wenger ( still admire him ) but I wanted the same decisive change Wenger brought in his first season. We were ruthless on / off pitch and strengthened well in key areas. That’s my yardstick although if we get to the same result ( we’ll balanced competitive team ) in the same timeframe eg like Klopp then job done. 👍.

I’m excited and looking forward for todays game, I want performance and fight from the team today and as everyone been saying a win would be awesome and a loss would ruin my day.
I hope we start with auba and Lacca today that would make city think twice about opening up too much.

Yeah sorry SY mate I'd replied to your fist post before I read your second one which made my reply look a bit silly :-) all standard stuff:-)
Hey ho it's all good mate and as you say Up the Arsenal.
