Deeply dissapointed by our two recent losses. You can tell this team is devoid of quality in most areas of the pitch. It will be a miraculous achievement if Emery wins the europa or finishes in the top 4 with this lot.

The biggest worrying thing for me is that the team is in serious need of investment to get in the top four never mind challenging for the title.

The owner believes you can achieve both through our self sustaining policy but that can only work if we are winning trophies so that we generate more sponsorship but how can we win if we don't have a good squad? It is a vicious circle.

Unai Emery as much as he was not my first choice, is a decent coach but that team is so rubbish he can't do much. we have already fallen behind city and liverpool we risk falling behind the spuds and chelsea unless we invest heavily. United will get a new manager next season and they will spend heavily. I expect them to challenge for the title soon. I expect them to get poch or zidane and you can imagine how much they will spend then.

Punani chill out. You forgotten all ready we destroyed spurs like a week ago as well as having an impressive unbeaten run. I agree the team is short of some world class talent but we’ve taken a massive step forward. Yes we’ve lost 2 games on the spin but do you remember what happened last time we lost 2 games on the spin?

We’ve not been great of late I admit, but in my opinion it’s no coincidence that form has dipped since the formation has changed and Lacazette hasn’t been starting.

Emery has done a fine job so far, bringing in 5 players during the summer, which is about the maximum amount that could be safely integrated. We have been unfortunately to lose 2 players out for the season to injury. I would like to see us sign a couple of players in the window; a player to replace Welbeck, who can play up front and in a wide attacking role and a midfield player with an all-round game.
The following players are clearly on borrowed time:
Jenkinson! - utterly useless
Ozil
Iwobi - still poor despite an upturn in form since Emery's arrival
Ramsey - contract running down
Cech - contract running down
Monreal - contract running down
Elneny - simply not good enough

For me the major weakness for me that needs most attention is that we have too many attacking midfield players that offer so little defensively.

Dick has a similar job to what Jurgen walked into at Liverpool both inherited poor squads full of obvious weaknesses and defensive problems.
It didn't happen over night at Liverpool and it won't happen over night at Arsenal either, this time last season people were still asking huge questions about Liverpools defence.
Jurgen and Liverpool had some pretty poor results on the way to getting where they are now 3 years after Klopp took over, patience is going with the manager and the club is the only way we stand a chance of getting back to being competitive.
If in 3 years time we still have all the same problems with squad quality then I will be joining those who question the club but if it took Liverpool and Klopp 3 years why should we expect Arsenal and Emery to do pretty much exactly the same job in less than 1 year?
Be realistic and give both the club and management a sensible chance and time scale to show what they can do together.

Agreed, I think we've just gotten used to winning again, so fans are overreacting to the two losses on the trot.

Ideally we would have rotated yesterday, but that was a man's game and a NLD so we couldn't play the kids.

Although we lost, we now match them physically (which wasn't the case the last two seasons) and we need more time for Emery to get the players he wants.

We're tired and beat up, but we need to push to January and get a couple players to reinforce and refresh the squad.

We're on the right track boys.

COYG.

Absolutely bang on the money g62. Results and seasons were poor, so most fans begged for a change. We've nkw got it. and while it has started better than we thought, it's not perfection. let's face it, things take time and I guarantee most fans of asked at the beginning of season if they'd be happy with where we are at this moment, majority would
Have said yes. New manager, new tactics, majority of inherited squad, but showing a fighting spirit that was lacking in past seasons. Rome wasn't built in a day, the excitement is surely in the curiosity of what lies ahead.

So far the Dick Arsenal combo have brought in Torreira Guendouzi Leno Papa and Litch, Torreira and Guendouzi have both been brilliant signings so far and both look absolute bargains while Papa and Leno both look like good buys and Litch has proved a useful addition to the squad especially when covering injuries.
We can't sign Ronaldo Messi or Mbappe type names in order to fast track ourselves into the title race so we are going to need to be patient and buy well and if the 5 signings so far and the difference they have made are anything to go buy then we should be very excited about what we will look like if we add another 5 to them over the next two windows.
