"There is so much that we want to achieve, both at home and in Europe, and we are focused on writing some exciting new stories and chapters that build on the history of Arsenal Football Club.

There have been so many stories and milestones across the season, shaped by so many of our players. We have all enjoyed seeing our summer signings flourish into being Arsenal players and we're delighted that a number of players have committed to new contracts to keep this squad together, fighting on all fronts. We want to continue to forge that winning mentality that runs
so deeply throughout the club. "

Awesome - that's the spirit we need at the top

Now go replace Granit that you've not fone, decent left back, a keeper and a proper striker that we've needed for years but never quite got. They are the fine margins.

Great season and very proud that still competing on the last day. That's all I want. Well done Club, players and Arteta. Edu - let's step it up son as you can do better.

Rice and Saliba have been amazing this season.

4 points from City and Pool in the same season - wow.

A few stupid results especially the ones against Fulham but ultimately Villa and West Ham. However we won games that off set those and against a club with 115 charges.

A great season regardless - well done and let's see it out and add to the team to take it further next season in Europe and EPL. We need trophies!

COYG - let's go for one more push and a magnificent end to the season as the fantastic fans deserve it ❤️?❤️?.

{Ed014's Note - I’m certain that Rice is the player to replace Xhaka and but for Parteys injury we would have seen him play further forward sooner.

It’s now Partey we need to look at replacing in the long term. Hence the links to Guimaraes and Zubimendi

If we get a striker what role does Havertz play?

Agree0 Disagree0

True - Rice needs a partner. That’s what I really meant

I’m not too fussed where or if Kai plays. He’s had a good season - more goals, work rate and better first touch than expected but at the top end of European football against the best -> we need better than Jesus and Kai. Kai will be a valuable player like Trossard but ultimately “I” feel Kai just isn’t quite good enough for a top top team as their striker or as a midfielder. Happy for him to stay but still wish we had sunk that money somewhere else like a Watkins type player. That’s just me.

The goalie scares the ? out of me at corners and when under pressure with ball at his feet.

Sorry SY your reply wasn’t put back for me.

I don’t see another keeper arriving, not after he’s just won the golden glove too.

I’m certain we’ll get a striker, truly would be madness not to and Alphonso Davies is running his contract down, he would be a great signing if we could pull that one off at left back.

We don’t really know the plan for Timber yet either.

I think Timber will play the majority of his games at lb so i don't think a new signing is needed there.

For me Rice is a 6 so we need a left 8 to essentially replace Xhaka as you say SY. But i'd like that player to be able to cover for Rice as well when needed.

If Nketiah and Nelson leave we will need a forward. Primarily a striker for me. I like Havertz there and he has the quality to play against anyone when the gameplan calls for him. The issue is that he's not going to be effective against every team so a different option is needed as well. Wouldn't mind Watkins.

To be honest before signing Raya on a permanent i would like to see if other options are available as well. Raya has been an upgrade over Ramsdale but not 100 % convincing. I expect him to stay though and hopefully he will keep improving.

Lastly, do we have a convincing solution to any potential Saliba absence? I believe Kiwior can replace Gabriel when needed.

Hello Ed abd Sy
That Davies you mentioned is he the one that scored for Bayern against Real in semi final.

{Ed014's Note - yes that’s him Bill

19 May 2024 13:00:15
Not sure we need a leftback. Obviously Timber slots in there, surely. Tommy and Kiwior are very good backups. There's also Zinny, if he's not sold.

We need a Partey replacement. Jorginho backup. Wouldn't even mind him as starting 11 and signing a good understudy.

Defo need a striker.

I feel we're strong in all other areas. Signing a striker does however leave us without a place for Havey. Oh well ??.

Thanks for the reply Ed. It is great to be still competing at the business end of the season. Still feel there’s a mental difference between us and City but that gap is closing which is exactly what we needed to do. Can’t ask too much more - the gap is tiny which is impressive ???.
