So, list of 25 players for CL group stage tbd till Sep 1(assuming we sign La Liga duo):

3 GK
RB: Bellerin, Debuchy
CB: Kos, Mustafi, Holding, Gabriel
LB: Monreal, Gibbs
DM: Coq, Elneny, Xhaka, Wilshere
AM: Santi, Ramsey, Ozil, Gnabry
Wingers : Ox, Theo, Alexis, Iwobi
ST: Giroud, Lucas

Are we good with min 8 home grown players here? Any other thoughts?

Bellerin
Holding
Gibbs
Coquelin
Wilshere
Ramsey
Ox
Theo
Iwobi

I think all count as HG.
Chambers as well. With our injury problems at cb he should be picked
Should be registered with the current club. Holding won't qualify here. Gnabry will. Chambers goes on loan.

+++
One who, between the age of 15 (or the start of the season during which he turns 15) and 21 (or the end of the season during which he turns 21) has been registered with his current club for a period, continuous or not, of three entire seasons or 36 months. This is irrespective of his nationality and age.
BBC reports Lucas deal is done, Mustafi close. Fingers crossed

"Arsenal have agreed a deal to sign Deportivo La Coruna striker Lucas Perez and are close to reaching an agreement with Valencia for centre-back Shkodran Mustafi.

Spaniard Lucas, 27, scored 17 goals in 37 games last season and Arsenal will meet a 20m euro (£17.1m) buyout clause.

Germany international Mustafi, 24, is set to join for a fee in excess of £35m.

It would take Arsenal's spending to almost £100m since last season.

They have added midfielder Granit Xhaka, defender Rob Holding, forward Takuma Asano and midfielder Kelechi Nwakali to their squad."
One of the great things about Mustafi signing for us is that if we let Chambers and Debuchy go, adding that Bellerin gets hurt (God forbid) he can slide at RB and do a comfortbale job.

Im mad excited for this season. We officially have a complete squad.
Jenkinson back November too don't forget :)
too bad we dropped 5 points from first 2 games.
Never gonna be f*****g happy are you? Just gotta piss on everything...must be a sad life. Those two games were hardly a guaranteed six points. FFS everyone drops points.
+1
We drop points all the time in the beginning lol

Unlike other leagues tho, your not out of the race cos anyone can beat anyone
I do not appreciate the used of foul language against me though, I am saying we should have sealed the mustafi deal much much earlier than this, as i already mentioned below. It's a regret where we are able to score 3 goals against liverpool but due to lacked of experience we concede 4 there.

'We drop points all the time in the beginning', since we already knew this, why not for once we change that ??
Don't know much about Perez, heard he has pace and likes to get behind defenses, and finishes good, which essential component we need. Hope he delivers when Giroud goes on runt or forms a good partnership like Giroud had would Griezmann at the euros. Having clinical finisher would serve us well against teams that sit back a lot,which is most of the league due to the way we play🙂

Glad Wenger has followed through on his word that he was going to sign three players to the senior squad, lol he actually signed five. Hopefully these signings would bring some measured peace within the fanbase and fans can stand united together, but that probably depends on how Xhata, Holding, Mustafi and Perez peform this season.
I hope for that too buddy. I hate seeing this club at each other's throats. It all comes down to how he manages this team now. There are a surplus of options so I'm sure it will leave us asking questions.
I'm happy we signed the players we NEEDED going forward I think it was unanimous that Per and Giroud needed a replacement and different option respectively.

That is what is pleasing to see but now the big question remains will Sanchez and Ozil sign a new deal? Lets see what happens this season :)
hold up hold up, why is everyone saying we've already signed Perez and Mustafi? i cant find anything new anywhere.....
And now onto our deadline day signing: hammez
lol no way we sign anyone else after Mustafi and Perez
we're gonna loan out Chambers and possibly let Debuchy leave I think that's our transfer window complete
Haha I know. But it's arsenal and the window is nearing an end. Time for surprises. Chambers could really get some good use from a few loans. Hopefully in the premier league though. If he is one for the future then get him experience in the league he's gonna play.
you thought aftv was bad check this out from west ham fans


Classic
Aaaand his balls crawled inside his stomach @ 1:53
The fans are the best entertainment sometimes. 😂😂😂
Just sign mustafi before that liverpool game perhaps the results would be better. AW had make him as target earleir, but the club stinginess make the deal stalled. In the end, they still finally pay the goddamn money for him, why not seal it soon ??
I explained below :P
+1
Mustafi deal done! 35m£ for a 24 yr old german international looks pretty good. Central pairing of Kos and Mustafi sounds good to me!
i'm honestly a bit dissapointed still we should have sealed this deal a lot earlier but we held out hoping that Valencia would wilt under pressure with the market closing but instead put pressure on ourselves to splash 35 million. I can understand perez because I'm sure we were in the market for a striker for some time but this one deal I wished we could have done before liverpool and we wouldn't have seen a 3-4 scoreline :(
ye that lost against Liverpool hurts. but moving on! the whole season ahead of us! Everyone will drop points, we definitely can come back in it. season is long!
I know you guys are optimistic and everyone knows i'm one of the most optimistic here but always bugs me that we fall short in the beginning. I would love for a fast start for once :P
At the same time Clousdt I think that the deal was close to done and then Gab got injured and Valencia tried to jack up the price knowing how much we needed a CB. Better that we lost 3 points than spent an extra 15M just to get him right away.
fair point but it still remains the point that we get hesitant when we see too big fees at Arsenal. Something has got to change imo
Cocks out lads!!!!!!
+1
out indeed!

"Now, about Lucas as a player. It says a lot that Arsene Wenger swooped in for the Spaniard after being turned down by Jamie Vardy. Stylistically, both are the same type of player: lean forwards with bags of speed and energy, always raring to break the defensive line and find themselves one-on-one. In fact, much like Vardy, Lucas suits the counter-attacking style of football. A style that Arsenal irregularly employ, which may be a sticking point. If Wenger does switch for this sort of style, which could be supported by the fact he’s chased down two identical strikers this summer, Arsenal may just have pulled off a bargain considering the current market. One interesting fact about Lucas is that he can speak English, having used it as a form of communication in Ukraine and Greece while plying his trade there."
