Rumours of selling Lacaztte this would be a major cock up if we sold him.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not if we got our money back and reinvested it in other areas, we are attack rich everywhere else poor so a redistribution of strength would be no bad thing.
Pea up top rather than out on the left to accommodate Lacasette has to be right, Pea is top drawer and shouldn't be poorly used to make a bad jigsaw possible.

Im a big lacca fan but with him and auba the balance isn't right. If we get good money and a good replacement then its probably a risk worth taking. Auba is a quality forward and he has to be striker. Lacca is also but maybe the boss thinks he can't accomadate both. We will see what materialises.

Yeah. Strength in depth is such a bad idea.

How can people even think about selling Lacazette. You can't rely on one striker when every team you face is different. Sometimes you need Lacazette and sometimes it's best to play Aubameyang. Alternatively, in my opinion you could play Lacazette just in behind Aubameyang and the two would link brilliantly. A squad needs depth and that's simple. Especially depth of such quality!

Who’s back up then if he gets injured?

08 Jun 2018 12:38:32
Glen who said rely on one striker, football is about balance and variety. He may want a different type of striker. If he wants to change any of wengers players, that's fine by me. They all didn't work before so we should trust his judgement, whatever, until we see the results. Personally i wouldn't miss too may of our players, there are definitely better out there.

Someone stupidly sold Giroud so we would have to buy another back up or rely on young Nketiah!

08 Jun 2018 14:31:51
Glen we basically sold giroud for auba, an obvious upgrade albeit a different player. IF we do sell lacca, who was a wenger signing, we might see another improvement, who knows. Emery may want to keep lacca but if he doesn't then we have to at least trust his judgement. By the way if we can i would like to keep him but also get the player Emery may or may not want to replace him.

Pea won't be happy to be rotated and Lacasette won't be happy to simply be cover for Pea so the temptation is to try and fit them both in.
Trying to fit both Pea and Lacasette plus both Ozil and Ramsey while not forgetting about finding room fir Miki, fitting them all into the same team will come at a price and that price will be progress.
It's about ballance, 27 + players at their peak don't want to be on the bench week in week out, bench regulars need to be younger or older players.
Anyone who thinks they can simply rotate Pea and Lacasette is a fantasist.

This is the problem with a completely new set up guys. None of know what the new set up are aiming for. IRS in the backroom and Emery have, hopefully, a working plan but we won't see it till 3-4 games in. There is a total rebuild happening, this ain't going to be solved in one season.
Meantime we can all have fun hoping this player stays leaves or comes in. It's going to be fun but hold tight.

Hi Saga mate good to hear from you mate.

09 Jun 2018 16:18:02
Do the city players moan about squad depth? Madrid? Barca? No because they are successful. Some of the players don’t like sitting out but it’s what they get paid to do! You need depth in your team to compete and the arsenal players will need to accept that. Laca and Auba are our strikers and they’ll have to get over it. One week it’s a game for Laca and then next it’s Auba depending on who we are playing. Sometimes it will be worth while playing them both. Who knows.

Good luck with dropping Pea Glen :-)
He's not known for his easy going nature and each time he doesn't play and we don't win get ready for the fans backlash.
Some players expect to play every game and when you are the outstanding player at the club you get to call the tune pretty much be that right or wrong, that's the reality of the situation.
Fantasy football doesn't have ego's moods and players power but in reality some players just don't rotate.

Hi gunner62 had a few health probs recently, but spent the time polishing up my fully moded up mobility scooter to Lamby SX 200 standard with a few extra mirrors and lamps. Got meself off to Our Cyprus house where its stonking hot and getting back up to date with Gonner news. Its going to be a busy ol few months for sure. Hope all is well with our fellow posters.

{Ed001's Note - sorry to hear that lout, hope you feel better soon mate.}

10 Jun 2018 12:19:16
Yes Saga mate like Ed001 I'm sorry to hear you haven't been to good mate but really pleased you seem to be on the up now mate.
I remembered you had a gaff in Cyprus and that's where I always picture you are, pint in hand :-)
The scooter sounds cool mate, ideal for a drunken celebration tour round the local area when Dick and the merry Sven men bring back the good times at the Arsenal:-)

Nufing to serious guys just old age creeping up I had a serious car accident with a 40 tonne lorry back n the 90s and it gives me grief nowadays. But i'm back in the sun with several pints on a mates 70th birthday talking about old London when scooter louts would have had a visit from a bloke in a Crombie and Trilby and told to behave themselves or get a slap.
Oh met a few gooners today as well and a really good mate that just happens to sadly be a spud. We had a good few EFES tween us as well. No hate here.
Looking forward to a great season
So from a very half cut sagalout have a great day guys.

{Ed001's Note - glad you are feeling a bit better and a lot drunker mate. Enjoy your night.}
