It has been ages since I enjoyed the start to a season as much as this season under Emery. Seeing players improve as they get fitter, stronger and are free to express their talents. The PL is extremely difficult to win this season with Man C, Liverpool and Chelsea unbeaten after nearly a quarter of the season. Whilst Man U and the Toot are strong competitors for a top four spot. With the exception of the Toot, all the clubs have trophy-winning managers.
I can't wait for the Leicester match, after the personic International matches.
Question for fellow Gooners; name the three most improved players under Emery.

I agree with the others mentioned, but no so much Lacazette. Yes he’s in a fine run of form but he was on a fine run at the end of last season. He just needed a run of games in my opinion . He maybe has improved a little but is certainly not in the top 3 most improved in my opinion.

Cech, iwobi and holding. But all three for me are behind their fellow team mates but have improved their game since last season.

I think Lacasette is out top man now mate ahead of Pea and for me that's some improvement on where he was last season under Arsene.
It's really difficult to call which players have improved the most because it depends how you measure it, if you use percentages then it's obviously Xhaka who is the most improved from 0.5/ 100 last season to 20/ 100 this season which is what 4000% improvement? but if Lacasette has gone from 60/ 100 last season to 80/ 100 it's only a 25% increase compared to Xhaka 4000%.
For me Lacasette has gone from a good premier league striker to a very very good premier league striker while Xhaka has stopped being a liability and is starting to show some real potential of possibly becoming an asset if he continues to work much harder than he has in the past.
The most unrecognisable player from his Arsenal displays of the past is Iwobi, there is nothing from his Arsenal past that compares to what we are seeing now from him.

Nah not for me g62! He started last season ok, got injured and took a while to get sharpe and had a good run at the end of last season, he’s also not the main man he is far more effective through the middle but PEA is also as effective through the middle, the difference is that PEA can also play wide to similar effect. They both scored two identical goals a piece . Pea got an assist . Holding is a great shout Steve.

We all see things differently mate but for me Pea isn't anywhere near as good playing wide as down the middle, central he's top draw wide he's not that special for me.

10 Oct 2018 20:40:13
I think modern strikers have to be more flexible, play wide, play central, drop off and be more intelligent than just playing down the middle. Salah, henry, messi, suarez, mbappe, ronaldo, neymar and i include our two and many more have to be more flexible. The "central" striker is becoming less common.

10 Oct 2018 20:43:39
Hmm sort of what I said then g62 😂.

10 Oct 2018 20:56:09
Cech - think he’s done this himself by getting fit over the summer rather than Emery impact

Iwobi a Close 4th.

10 Oct 2018 21:24:25
Sort of mate apart from Pea being similarly effect out wide where I think he's only ok rather than anything special :-) .

10 Oct 2018 21:29:09
Hows Cech improved?

10 Oct 2018 21:47:07
Jack, cech last season was a liability in goal. This season (passing apart) he kept us in games and allowed us to win games we did not deserve. He looked fitter and brighter than he did last term.

Is he "out wide" the goal he scored similar to laacas at the weekend was collected outside the right hand post and inside the six yard box, on the right side when he scored. Wasnt his other goal scored on the right hand side as well?
