This transfer window so far for us has been horrific

No power players signed. We're crying out for them in this team!!

Kolasinic good squad player. If he replaces Monreal as a wing back we're weaker in that position, Monreal is far better.

Laca, another squad player, is not better than Giroud and cost over 50 f ucking million.

Rumours the Ox is going to have talks with Chelsea, one of the only powers players we've got, f ucking great!

With Sanchez and Ozil's situation still in the air, I'd say horrific is being kind

Where's Cazorla's replacement?

Lemar why we chasing such a limited player, I'll tell you why because he's French.

Am fuming!

Özil, Ox and Alexis should have signed or been sold by now. It's been very poorly managed.

The type of striker Lacazette is will improve us. I really like Giroud but we play better with a mobile striker. He's a decent addition.

Something needs to be done about central midfield. We have two functioning partnerships
, Coquelin and Cazorla which can't happen and Xhaka Ramsey which works with 3 at the back. Also, Ramsey is injured frequently . We need to get rid of Elneny and find someone intelligent enough who can compliment what we've got

Losing Szczesny for £10m when Pickford went for £30m doesn't seem great business either.

We won't find a Cazorla replacement so it's better to get a powerhouse in.

Ramsey is trash, how many times do idiots needs to see him to realise!

Trash is an exageration. He has lost his defensive work rate that he had with arteta. Ramsey isn't the biggest pbm in the squad. if only xhaka could defend and also have better ball retention, players like theo, mustafi, ox, sanchez, welbeck, coquelin, kolasinic, could pass

Another season approaches and all we have signed is a ridiculously over priced striker that would barely be a squad player with the likes of city, Chelsea, Utd, Spurs, Pool. That was a severely weakened blues team we faced who practically played their entire youth team in the second half and still won with ease - that could have been nine to them. We really are so weak without Alexis, and to hold him against his will, in WC year, he'll barely break sweat as he is Chile's automatic first name on the team sheet and want to risk injury or play for a team he has made it clear he wants to leave.

I really thought this was the year we'd compete and make some serious signings of intent. But alas, one dud, and one guy none of of us have ever heard of, and arguably our most gutsy player with bags of potential is off to Chelsea next week.

We won't be winning that 4th placed trophy again this year.

Our first team has a bunch of players who'd struggle to make it as squad players at the likes of City and Chelsea.

Chelsea, Utd and ourselves have signed number 9's this summer and we've signed the worst one!

We need to sign some power players, if we don't next season is a right off!

What is a power player? I am serious. Anyway I don't expect much from an Arsenal squad while Wenger is in charge. Kroenke will have to be crazy to give Wenger any further extensions after next two seasons when Wenger fails miserably again.



We don't have anybody with 20 goals in the league, so that is a handicap - Arsene Wenger

To be fair, it's been worse for Monaco. Literally more than half their team and their entire future stripped away.

All the money in the world can't replace that, as they're finding out. Not to mention, these ridiculous fees are paying hardly anything up front. There's a view that the 140m for mbappe will never actually be paid, not even half of it.

Our summer has been shocking but their fans should be crying.

This for two more years so strap in grin and bare it.

Scary when you look at the reinforcements Chelski and ManCity are bringing in.

As for Arsenal, why are Gibbs, Walcott and Peres still with us? Why isn't a replacement for Cazorla being worked on?

 
Re: This transfer window so far for us has been horrific
Flava (IP Logged)

Walcott's on too much money, Gibbs is on too much money and Perez wasn't given a chance because Wenger probably didn't sign him.

We don't need a Cazorla replacement mate, we can play Ramsey and Wilshere in a double pivot circa Goofle and JackITT 2012

- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

"If you look at the numbers we are not that far off. This season we scored .1 goals per game more than last year and we conceded .05 goals per game less than last year.
Overall I feel the period between Dec and jan was a bit difficult for us. We suffered physically. And in this game you loose confidence quickly but you gain it back slow. Overoolll, I think we need to look at areas where we can improve and look at internal solutions. If we find a player that can improve us, we will sign them. But its difficult to find quality players in the this market. The players are all focused on the world cup. " - May 2018

Why am I not surprised? This is the forum where all the wailers congregate. We have signed the best striker in the French league for the past 3 seasons for 45million, significantly lower than what he would cost in this market. Everybody says we've got him on a bargain. And the most important thing is that he is the type of striker we needed, and we did it very early in the window.

We've signed the best leftback in the German league last season, and we got him for nothing. This may as well be the best bit of business this season, obviously the best leftback in the league even before kicking a ball.

We've also not lost any player of significance. We've done well to keep Ozil, he might not have signed but we all know he's staying and is going to sign. Chamberlain is also going to stay even though we all know he's playing hardball, trying to get himself a better deal than his consistency and overall quality deserves. We've done well not to give-in to his demands. There is Lemar coming in, report says it's basically a done deal. Meanwhile, there is no serious team out there ready to take Sanchez, and if there were we've already said we're not going to sell him, which we look determined not to do for a change. This is about the best window we've had in the last decade and anyone who doesn't see that is a grade A fool.

Lacazette is a terrible footballer, he's just a little above the level of Sanogo and Akpom, spending 50-60 million on him when we have Akpom and Sanogo is foolishness. So far, you haven't been able to come up with one good name that we could sign.

As there is only Xhaka in the midfield, I highly doubt that.One of Tom's worst trolling efforts

Even if Ramsey is under instructions to play where he wants surely some of the players should be getting hold of him and telling him to sit next to Xhaka. Ramsey is truly a product of the Wenger era.
