If kronke has seen what we can do then surely he should be thinking a bit of money and we could go for it, for me it’s keep lacca keep pea, get a world class commanding CB a proper cdm and buy Dani Ceballos personally I think that is good enough to challenge.

Agree0 Disagree0

With Saliba coming end of season I don’t think we need another cb personally, would like a commanding holding mid and either buy DC permanently or go for another playmaker, not forgetting we still have the option of giving ESR more game time next season, I think our biggest need is contract extensions over signings.

{Ed047's Note - I’m kind of agreeing with you Marshall, firstly what available world class CB is out there who we could get?

Also feel Saliba, Luiz, Holding, Mari and dare I say it, Mustafi will be good for now.

Get the contracts sorted and get a quality midfield replacement for Ozil along with keeping Ceballos, PEA and Lacazette.

With the right organisation and mindset as we’ve seen lately we can achieve a lot more.

I agreed with you ed. I would love a tall athletic DM who can pass the ball. I would be happy with that and the contracts sorted.

{Ed047's Note - it’s all about time for Arteta for me Malaga, the team slowly look like they’re taking it on board.

He’s not taking rubbish from the likes of Guendouzi either which I like. So I’m happy for him to spend any money exactly where we need it, midfield, hoping that he keeps PEA and Lacca.

A fully concentrated David Luiz is still a class defender.

I'm with you regarding a tall midfield player. DM would be nice but with the right organisation and balance between creative, box to box and defensive players we could even afford to sign a tall, strong box to box. It's a player profile that I like and I think some strength and height would be advantageous to our performances as a team.

Agree with all of this fellas, I was only saying yesterday that the ideal signings for me would be Partey, Ceballos and Coutinho.
Loan Holding or Chambers, sell Ozil, Kolasinac, Guendouzi and Torreira ( who I like but can’t seem to nail down a place) .
Bring Smith-Rowe into the side the way Saka, Eddie, M Niles, Nelson and Willock have been used and I think we’ve a squad that can secure CL football next year which is the aim right now.
We’re in a great position in that our 5 of 6 really good young prospects are humble enough still to bide their time as long as Arteta continues to improve us so there is room there right now if we make those 3 key signings.
We pretty much have cover and versatility in every position.
Partey would be a beast in the prem but I think Countinho, with his position and how he plays in behind, could unlock even more out of Auba and Lacca who must be kept as Ed047 has said.
Who would your preference be for the Ozil role Ed?

{Ed047's Note - I don’t really know Shambles, I’m not convinced with Coutinho as his work ethic, like Ozil’s, isn’t great.

I’d like to see more of Ceballos, with a longer run of games, as he just seems to get better and would like to see what he can really do.

Loved the way he celebrated with Arteta after the win against City too.

Ed, sy4 will have your head off if you suggest anything good about Luiz.

{Ed047's Note - haha, he’d have to catch me first! 🤣

Seriously though when he’s on it he’s quality, just got to keep him focused.

20 Jul 2020 17:38:50
ESR is not good enough for us and that’s my opinion before the opinion police turn up.

20 Jul 2020 17:31:35
I agree that we have to be realistic about who we can get Ed047 mate, it's easy to name names but firstly they need to be interested joining us.

{Ed047's Note - absolutely and keeping those we have will add to the attractiveness of us to any possible signing.

If they see Lacazette and Aubameyang leaving it doesn’t say a lot about our ambition.

20 Jul 2020 20:33:22
Absolutely mate its easier getting people to choose what your offering if others with good options are already committing to you too.
But we most definitely shouldn't waste our Sumner window chasing Benzemma Higguian and Mbappe fantasies targets and miss out on good achievable options.

I don't think buying a CB will solve our problems when we already have so many on the books. We have defenders coming out our ears already and if we keep Laca and PEA then we have a ton of forwards. Saka, Smith-Rowe and Nelson can compete with Pepe for the wing spots.

The only position we completely lack now with no Ozil is a CAM, someone clever enough to find our attackers in the box. If we keep Ceballos then we have him, Xhaka, Torreira and Willock all competing for 2 spots. I would love to see what he can do with Torreira especially. Pre-Klopp, nobody would have predicted Henderson becoming one of the world's best DMs or Wijnaldum one of the world's best CMs and yet after a few years of coaching and a very specific set of jobs to do, that's exactly what they are.

Arteta has shown he can do wonders with Xhaka and Mustafi, who we all wrote off well over a year ago now, so if we add I think it should only be for real excellence.

We used to play an extra man in midfield because we were weak.

We play 5 at the back - why? Weak CBs?

Saliba ✅
Luiz - one game doesn’t mean anything. Disaster waiting to happen
Holding ✅
Mari ✅
Mustafi - not reliable enough and we’ve already got one liability
Mavropanos ✅

Just hope Luiz doesn’t play 🤞

We need a proper CDM - yes. I like AMN over Torriera and still unsure about Danny Boy. In the right midfield he might be ok.

Would like a leader in CD so clear out some space for a Adams type leader - that’s not Luiz or any of our current crop.

Very true Wire about what Klopps coaching has done and if Arteta can dp likewise with our players we will be back in business before we know it.
Players have and are improving under Arteta and next season we will see just what he can get out of these players who have struggled so badly for so long before Mikel arrived.
If he can make a player out of Xhaka then absolutely anything is possible:-)

SY4 how on earth can you say you would rather amn than Torreira that’s a joke surely 😂😂.
