Look like Emery is getting rid of Wenger's love children

Unai Emery should be applaud for biting the bullet and getting rid of Wenger's love children and the Brit Pack that led him down every seasons without fail; all mentally weak and just lack that bottle to grind out results and even when down, keep fighting and swinging.

The last of the Brit Pack in Jenkinson and Ramsey should be sold to finance the players he knew and wanted to re-shape and configure the team to the high-pressing and counter-attacking football he wanted.

Ramsey has only one attribute - attacking in final third of opponent and the knack of getting into scoring position and drifting into blind-side of defenders to snap out rebounds.
But his shooting skill is mediocre and more misses than hits.
As a CM, is passing is at best average and predictable and got intercepted most of the time, if not being of the wrong weight, either overhit or under hit most of the time.

Box-to-box midfielder?
C'mon, how many times we saw him lost the ball with him just threw up his hands and arms akimbo, just stood there instead of instantly pressing the ball carrier.

Not only that.
His positioning also got into the way of Lacazette and Aubameyang and he is not mobile enough to create space and a split second of clear passing channel for the likes of Xhaka, Ozil and Mkhi to find him in open space.

Afraid his head had been turned by his agent and he is prepared to do an "Alexis" to see out his contract for a 250,000+pw mega-buck move for the next sugar daddy to sign him on a Bosman.


As he is in the last year of his contract, the most we can get out of him is between 30-mil and 40-mil.

Iwobi?
Too inconsistent, mentally weak and just don't deliver when given umpteen chances. We need a pacy winger to replace him now.
Sell him if he is stil that bad during pre-season.

Jenkinson?
Ospina?
Time to sell.

Perez?
Joel Campbell?
Open verdict and if we cannot sign a pacy winger, then keep them for one season to prove themselves.
Wenger never give them a change but indulge in his love-child in Iwobi and Ramsey.


We have a little more than a month before Transfer Window slams shut on 9 August.

Without Wenger as the stumbling block, guess Gazidis had grown a pair and will be ruthless enough to sell Ramsey, Iwobi, Ospina and Jenkinson to generate transfer funds of 40-mil to 50-mil to buy their replacements, e.g.


#1 - 6'5" N'zonzi beast of a powerful midfielder that can pass better than Ramsey.

#2 - A gamble to sign 22 year old Andre Gomes as a replacement for Ramsey?

#3 - Or 22 year old Guede from PSG?

#4 - ANother Mexican youngster in that 22 year old pacy "Chunky" Lozano from PSV?

Watch Mislintat's next move, which is which players will be sold to further more purchases.

Last I read, Emery wanted to build his team around Ramsey and Auba.

Don't mind Ramsey staying cos I still judge him based on his Euro 2016 performance but it would be a mistake making him Captain. He is too selfish to be one and he is still a glory hunter.

It is called playing hard-ball and hard-nose negotiation with Ramsey's agent.
Signed on and Emery will build the team around Ramsey.

Decline the contract extension, Emery will just sell him to the highest bidder to fund transfer target like Andre Gomes, Lazano, Guede and other picks on Mislintat list.

We have enough attacking flair in Laca, Auba, Mkhi, Ozil upfront as starter.
And squad players like Maitland-Niles, Nelson, Iwobi, Perez and Campbell who can paly attacking midfielder wide and Campbell even can play ACM.

Wilshere, Iwobi and even Ramsey are surplus to requirement in this Emery's new squad to play his high-pressing and countet-attacking football with intelligent players with good first touch and to pass immediately.

If that's the case, why is Arsenal constantly posting every move Ramsey makes during training. Videos, photos it's like he is the favourite bride.

At this rate we're going to have a team of eleven defensive players. Not sure why we would want Nzonzi if we are getting there Uruguayan terrier.

I also think it's a huge mistake to not have more Brits. Hopefully he uses the youngsters because they have the potential.

Try him out and see how he does and sell him in January if no signs of improvement under new management.



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