Emery inherited the weakest Arsenal squad for decades, a team that that was on the decline having finished 6th in the PL. The 5 teams above us had been built for a few seasons, 2 of which had still won nothing and all had top managers at the helm.
The summer signings were decent, considering the minimal £70m outlay. The problems have been compounded by 2 season ending injuries and a long term injury to Mkhitaryan.
It seems that we are unable to bring in permananet signings during this window, but may bring in loans, which will be converted to permanent deals during the next window.
Unless Kroenke puts his hand in his pocket, the task Emery has will take time, possibly 2 or 3 years until he has a squad that he has put togther. As fans we must be patient and support the manager, whilst putting pressure in a sensible way on Kroenke to provide a budget from his own funds. Realistically we need a huge sum, perhaps as much as £400-500m over 3 or 4 windows.

What a shocking performance from Arsenal. Everyone was terrible.

Going forward, Arsenal seem to have regressed. As much as i questioned wenger's tactics, going forward, his teams play splendid swashbuckling football.

With Emery, we are not creating much going forward and have to rely on the excellent finishing of aubameyang nd lacazette.

Short term, i think Emery need to find a way to integrate ozil into the team. He is the only player who can create a lot of chances. Without him, we rely a lot on kolasinac and bellerin which makes our attack predictable. Perhaps emery should consider playing 3-5-2 with ozil in the team, aubameyang and laca upfront. I don't think the 3-4-3 formation suits us. I know conte played it at chelsea but conte had two exceptional wingers in hazard and pedro who could stretch defences and diego costa who could bully defenders on his own.

Long term, we need a lot of investment into the team. a whole new back four, a box to box midfielder, a playmaker to replace ozil and two wingers. That is 8 players basically a new team and don't think that will happen with kroenke in charge. So kroenke needs to go too.

We clearly need a rebuild, there is only so much Emery can do with the garbage he inherited. I though Iwobi played well yesterday.

Punani, how have we regressed? Granted we might not have improved as much as some people might have expected but to say we have regressed is ludicrous. Remember anyway, this club has been on a downwards trend for years. The first realistic thing would be to stop that but we have not regressed. We are actually scoring more goals, that's fact. This season is anout transition and all that goes with it.

Aubameyang looks completely uninterested in this match. Emery should take him off at half time.

Rambo must be a real pain in the arse and truly not fit into Emery's plans st all. If he's on 140k or 36m over 5 years with no transfer fee then that's cheap. to replace him - hopefully 30 to 40m plus decent wages probably over 140k?

If we can't afford an additional 40k a month to keep him due to ffp then dark times ahead. If he's that bad - good luck Juve.

Reports that he wanted £180,000 a week, which is a huge amount for a player that is decent going forward, but lacks defensively. We seem to have a massive problem in respect of adhering to PL wage rules, as we gave huge contracts to Ozil, Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan. We also agreed new deals for other players and still have to shed Jenkinson, Elneny and others. In the summer we can release Welbeck, Lichtsteiner and Cech, which will reduce our wage bill, freeing up wages for new players, who can be bought using funds from new sponsorship deals this summer.

I wouldn't give him 100k a week, another jacl wilshire, loads of promise but not reliable. His flicks and trick at the wrong time will not be missed. But good luck to him.

I am amazed at the damage done to the club by Gazidis and Wenger in the post Dein/ Fiszman era.
Poor decisions in repepect of contracts; Long term contracts given to poor players, such as Bendtner, Jenkinson, etc. Whilst failure to extend the deals of top players, or at least sell them before thier contracts run down or become so short the players held all the cards.
Emery and the new team are clearly changing the way we do business. Last summer we signed 5 players for a reported £70m. Torreira must now be worth at least £50m, Guendouzi £25m and we would hopefully get our money back on Leno and Sokratis. So there would be a healthy increase in excess of £40m on the value of these players. Whilst young players are coming through.
Without an injection of funds, say £200m, from Kroenke, which I doubt wil happen, we must be patient as Emery and Co rebuild.

Pep saying Man City definitely in the Final! There’s your motivation Mr Clough, just pin that up in the changing room 😂.

Good to learn that we have 6 players who were out injured back in training. Most of whom are defenders, thus easing the pressure to make signings during the current difficult window. The most 'noise' relates to 2 players; Denis Suarez and Carrasco, who would improve the weakest section of the team, ithe '3; in Emery's favoured 4-2-3-1 formation. Koscileny, Mustafi and Mavrapanos's imminent return has eased the loss of Holding to injury, making a replacement for Welbeck a priority, hence Carrasco's potential signing.

Someone was calling for moreno a while back, he's playing garbage as usual! Way worse than what we have an ageing monreal would run more!

We’re looking for a winger! Pires and JJ Okocha looking useful? Think I’m joking 🙃 COYG.
