Last night was pretty hard to take but it was pretty obvious at the end the players were wiped out, both physically and more importantly mentally. Its easy to say they shouldn't have been, but they were.

Should our recruitment over the summer concentrate on strong physical players rather than opting for young technically gifted players?

And of course I still love Arsenal ❤️.

Spot on Sally. Although the performance was awful it's easy to forgot the age and inexperience of most of our players. This is all new to them and but they will learn and hopefully become better at dealing with the pressure and stress that comes with high level football.
Although the flip side of this is why don't we have more experience within the team. We can't keep buying youth and potential if we want to move forward.

Been banging on for a Bissouma, or an equivalent for ages Sally. We have enough technical pretty boys. It’s time we signed some men to back them up, so for me physical type players is what we need. A couple of natural born winners wouldn’t go amiss as well!

I believe Bissouma is still under police investigation Epping so that might be a problem but I definitely agree the young players need help. It will he interesting to see what happens during the summer. I've heard rumours of Gabriel being scouted by Spanish clubs and Eddie being looked at by Chelsea and City I think.

I've been worried about Aaron for a few weeks and David Seaman needs to help him manage his emotions otherwise I think his confidence will plummet. (Who would chose to be a keeper! ) .

Also, at the risk of being thought controversial, I think with this thin squad, with long term injuries to key players, young players who will inevitably make mistakes, a rookie manager who is also going to get things wrong, then Europa is best for us this coming season.

After all if we wanted to win everything we would support City or Liverpool at the moment!

He might be Sally, although I thought that all finished/ got swept under the carpet back in February. His positioning and work rate is exactly what we need. I also think it would allow Partey to push forward more, something he was more than capable of doing at AMadrid, and would give us a midfield 2 capable of mixing it with anyone. You are correct about Aaron ( and I was a GK) . saw him against Wolves where his distribution was terrible, and his confidence seemed shot. Funnily enough, as a GK, I much preferred games when we were getting hammered, as your involved so much more, and if you make a mistake, you can redeem that very quickly, whereas those games when your a spectator for most, and then mess up when you are called upon, really messes up your confidence. He is a good keeper though, and I think he will be ok. We spent a lot of money last year, on a mixed bunch, but with more squad players with the hope that will make it. This summer, we really need to improve the first XI, even if it’s just two or three players, but they need to be first names on the team sheet sort of players, not more potentials for the future.

Nice to hear from a GK that you have faith in Ramsdale Epping, that's good going forward :)
