PEA has stopped talks with the club over his contract extension . that’s him gone soon then.

Madrid want to swap jovic for him be a shame but if he wants to go I take the young striker.

Let him go bring on Martinelli and bring back Eddie from Leeds.
Let the egos go and replace with the enthusiastic endless effort filled players who want to be here.
Can we do worse than we are now?

I would always keep quality players and PEA is undoubtedly quality! No point in getting rid as when / if we get the quality manager we want he won’t have the best tools to do the job. Before the season started most on here were confident of top four - still the same players just a manager not capable of getting the best from them . Thought we only needed attitude improvement but now we need attitude and tactics COYG.

Anyone have a clue as to why we bought Pepe? Clearly Emery and Ljunberg don't rate him. Cannot get any minutes when we are desperate for a winning goal. Brings on Torreira, Saka and Martinelli.
This must be destroying his confidence and, in doing that, reducing him from a 72M player to a player worth a lot, lot less.
And then there is Tierney!

Pressure for results I guess mate, but that doesn't explain Xhaka playing.
I think the plan was Auba Lacca Pepe with Ozil frozen completely out of the picture in an attempt to force him out of the club but results performances and pressure forced a change of plan instead and the struggling Pepe had to make way in an attempt to turn things around.
It's all a mess right now and a fresh start is needed in all departments.

I actually think David Luiz should play as a DM, as he can pass and doesn’t mind getting stuck in. Emery played him there last game and it was after his rip injury And came off, we went back to awful. And all us fans want to see for a few weeks on the spin- Ozil feeding aubamayang laca and Pepe in front.

I agree coldice. I think xhaka and Luiz looked solid as a dm partnership in emery's last game.

We could try the novel idea of picking an 11 and formation and sticking with it for 5 games I guess rather than chop change tinker tweek from game to game.
I agree ice play Luis DM Just in front of Chambers and Papa or Holding.
Sooner or later you've got to say this is my best 11 and back your own judgement and work on all weaknesses and mistakes in traing with those 11.
Be proactive be positive rather than keep reacting to every negative moment.
Give it 5 games come rain or shine and then tweek if and where necessary.

I just worry about how many players have come to Arsenal over the last many years and are regressing as players in their time with us. In the last 10 years I cannot think of many players who have really improved in their time with us.
This can't keep going like this and I am sure is a big factor in our decline over these years.

I think 62 is right. Ozil wasn't in the plans and Pepe was second top scorer in France I think, and was one of very few available winger/ wide attackers that could run at people successfully. Overvalued no doubt, but let's give him a chance!

Reports saying laca could be dropped for Pepe. I have no idea what’s going on at the training field, but I can’t be the only fan that thinks play 4 at the back, 2 holding (not box to box) and leave Ozil feeding Pepe Laca and Aubamayang up top. With bellerin (if fit) and tieny fullbacks, our flanks are rapid. let’s face it, we don’t have the players to defend with any real quality, so surely we have to be extra aggressive with our attacks. Score more than the opponents if you will.

Don’t judge Pepe or other players until they play under a quality manager. The players are devoid of confidence. We must get an experienced manager in and quick.

The line up lacks width and Laca is just not playing well enough to justify playing Aubameyang out of position. Lineup should be
Leno
Bellerin Chambers Luiz Tierney
Xhaka Ozil Torreira
Pepe Auba Saka/ Gabriel

That’s a line up that can get behind the defensive regularly with pace. Xhaka whether you like him or not gives us better Midfield control.

Any chance we can end Saliba's loan early and get him in January?

{Ed002's Note - No, that is not possible.}

And is Holding's absence from the recent squad due to lack of match fitness?

{Ed047's Note - he’s not listed as injured and is always in the training photos so they’re not liking what they see I guess.

Can you imagine how bad he must look to not get ahead of Luiz or mustafi, let alone not make the bench!

{Ed047's Note - no Eden I can’t mate because he isn’t that bad

Ed any truth in the rumours linking aubamayang to Madrid? Reports saying 70mil + Rodriguez.

{Ed002's Note - There is zero chance of an offer like that. Arsenal will sell if Aubameyangadingdong fails to sign a new contract. There will be takers but right now they need to sort out the medium term and persuade him to sign.}

Holding looks good in a back 3 but struggles Just like the rest in flat back 4.
Overall it doesn't seem to make any difference flat back 4 or 3 at the back, Xhaka in or out nothing seems to change no matter who or what formation we play.
Something is somewhere is amiss and we need to firstly find out what it is then do whatever it takes to sort it out.

From what I've seen this season g62 it's three things. First, we get caught upfield too often and our defenders/ midfielders are terrible at tracking back or following their man. Of our midfielders, I have only seen Torreira do this consistently. Second, when we do manage to mark an attacker, our defenders curiously stand off him and allow the shot. See Pukki's goal for a prime example. This is a common habit of Mustafi and Luiz and to a lesser extent Chambers. Third, when we are defending and pressing, we don't cover for each other in the press so as soon as the opposing team breaks it, they have a huge chasm to stride into unimpeded before they reach the back 4. This is the main reason we concede so many shots. Watch Guendouzi and Xhaka for this and you will see how quickly our midfield gets bypassed.

Excellent post wire mate and for me it's these things we should be concentrating on rather than play musical chairs with playing staff constantly. Work work work on what's wrong then in the summer evaluate who is and isn't capable of change and improvement.

Ed you said before that arsenal have no replacements in place cause emery was the manager but now that they've sacked him can we have the list of names please?

{Ed002's Note - The club will take their time.}

Be interested to see if the club waits til January. Unlikely to be any money to spend mind you.

I'm hearing Bruno Genesio might be the new Arsenal manager? A friend has passed this to me, so if its bull don't shoot me! 😀.

Lyon Scored 2.2 goals per game under him and conceded 1.2 goals what's that over a season 80 for 45 against which suggest very good going forward but pretty dodgy on defending, ummm not exactly the change we were hoping for :-) but appreciate the info all the same mate cheers.

Ed001 you predicted emery so well and I think you have the golden touch, so who do you predict will end up as arsenal manager? Or if you don't know why don't you name a few you think could come mate?

{Ed001's Note - I honestly have no idea who is coming. Arsenal have been so keen to avoid this situation mid-season that I do not think they are prepared for it at all. I expect a caretaker from among the coaching staff to be appointed while they try and find someone.}

Freddie ready to step in reports the Guardian. They have a thread on this currently, so I expect they know what Ornstein knows.
