Coq has been training at CB since the news of Per. F me.
Ospinas been been playing outfield... So?
shorter but faster:-)
The second coming of Mascherano
I might be dreaming but I'd really love to see us sign a poacher this TW, a player all about movement around the box, runs in behind the defense, positioning and early finishing.

It would bring a type of forward that we do not have right now, bringing that extra urge to shoot and try the direct route on goal. I am thinking players like Chicharito, Slimani, Gameiro might be great signings... Those guys are around 28 years old, they know their stuff. They would also cost us way less than a real quality all-round striker.

Anyway, I dont really think it's happening but I feel that we miss a poacher badly. We've had Suker or Kanu, we should go for a player like that imo.
The Arsenal Motto is "What we need, We don't get(insert trollface)"
Nice we got Xhaka but he is just a piece of the possible to actually complete our team. No point waiting year after year to fill each position. Higuain cost a lot but why not take the risk on someone who actually scores and like to shoot?
Mahrez to Arsenal to be completed by the next few days

:)

http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11670/10514860/arsenal-wont-spend-big-money-to-compete-with-rivals-says-ivan-gazidis

"We can't afford to outgun competitors that have far more money. We have to be very careful, very selective," he said.

"We're still active in the market, as are most other clubs, and if we find opportunities that our manager believes can improve our squad and add something to it, we're certainly going to take those steps," he said. "But in terms of this week, I don't think there will be any radical surprises."

- Gazidis

Whilst I have a great respect for the self-sustaining model that the club has worked to build, I think this is the worst time to be harping on about financial prudence given the extortionate amounts of money available to PL clubs this year.

We all know what is needed, I think we can afford to "splurge" on an attacking/forward player that can get us over the line. Fans aren't asking for a reckless spree, but we want to see the obvious weaknesses in the squad addressed and it shouldn't cost us our financial stability to do it.

i don't believe AW will spend 20m on 30yo Mandzukic.
He used to sell aging players, not to buy them.
Cesc sent off for showing his studs during the friendly vs Liverpool lol

Is this source reliable guys?
no.
About as reliable as a Mourinho 10 year plan.

Chelsea vs Liverpool coming up in a bit. This international travel and playing has to be pretty difficult on players. I'd imagine most of them would be sound asleep before kick off even starts in their day to day routines...Nonetheless, I actually get to watch a live game at night here!
If our squad is 100% fit who makes the starting 11???
Current signings only
Lacazette
.
.
.
:P
With the current squad

Giroud

Alexis Ozil Ramsey

Xhaka Cazorla

Monreal Kos Merts Bellerin

Cech


But Merts is definitely out, and Mustafi link is getting stronger and stronger, so replace the two...
If Mahrez comes in, he slots on the right, and Ramsey goes central.

With our injury history, Cazorla, Elneny, Coquelin, Wilshere, Ox, Theo, Iwobi, Adelaide and possibly Lacazette(if true lol), will all get game time
I'm rooting for Campbell to give Ramsey a run for his money. Ox to go hard for a starting spot too... don't think the starting 11 will be a sure pick like it was last season. The squad is getting stronger imo.
+3
I think most of the questions are in the 2 midfield spots behind Ozil and the RW, I'd have Ox or Campbell starting on the rw depending on who shows the best form during preseason, as for the other 2 spots 1 being more defensive it will be between Coq and Elneny. I like Elneny a little better because of his passing range and screamers from distance. For the more creative position it's a toss up between cazorla ramsey and xhaka. Some ppl may have xhaka as a more defensive option but he looks equally strong in both areas
I agree with Xgooner's lineup. In an ideal world without injuries, Walcott will probably be our most used sub. Wilshere will also be heavily involved. And Coquelin I think will also be used as a tactical change-up for Xhaka or Cazorla from time to time.
Trick question. The answer is Arsene Wenger makes the starting xi.
+6
yup, only Wenger will know 2 days b4. I think Campbell and the Ox will be given loads of chances so I hope they stay fit and grab their opportunities. It will be interesting to see how well le coq does at CB tomorrow as well lol. I highly doubt he'll be playing CB at all during the season but he's gonna go hard to make the starting 11. The biggest competitions in CM will be Xhaka, Jack, Santi and Ramsey imo. Elneny will rotate well with Coquelin whenever.
A) This is a trick question. Arsene Wenger makes the starting XI.
B) This is a pointless question. Arsenal fans will never be satisfied with a lineup that Wenger chooses.
C) This is a theoretical question. Our squad will never be 100% fit.
D) This is an incorrect question. It will only be a starting 10 because there are 2 Gibbs on the pitch. (or is it Oxlade-Chamberlain?)
+3
lol @ D

Ox had a good preseason last year and that pretty much got him nowhere exactly 1 year later (same to be said about Wilshere and Walcott - no progress a year later). That's more troubling than who starts in our XI.
Elneny is a first 11 player in my opinion.

So something like...

Sanchez, Giroud, Cazorla
Elneny, Ozil, Xhaka,
Monreal, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Bellerin,
Cech

I expect to see Cazorla playing on the wing this season.
+1
santi on the wings, nah. rather have santi control the play in the mid as he does best.

rest the same, but a xhaka-santi midfield combo in the middle, or elneny-ramsey.
We have Xhaka / Elneny / Coquelin as our out and out CM options and then we have the likes of Cazorla / Ramsey / Wilshere who can play wide midfielder or CM. That's why I think we will see Cazorla popping up on the wings this season, along with Wilshere and Ramsey as the squad fitness and rotation dictates. But I guess that's dependent on whether Wenger wants to play an attacking winger like Theo or the Ox or a wide midfielder like he has been with Ramsey. Depends on the situation I suppose.
+1
To add to that, from what little I've seen, I would genuinely rate Xhaka and Elneny just as good as Cazorla in terms of quick passing in midfield. Cazorla's best attributes are his passing, ball control and trickery which I think is better suited to the wing positions.
I'm sure he can cross a good ball too.
depends on also the opponents we play against. honestly, this is where mahrez will fix the whole issue of the wingers problem at the club.
Santi is the most important piece of our midfield. I hope we don't see him put out on the wing. Teams like Liverpool, Spurs, and Southampton that have that high press are vital games for Santi's quick feet to release some pressure.
Santi is 30/31 years old and not blessed with that much pace. I don't want to see him sacrificed to the wings to shoehorn in two defensive-minded midfielders for all games.

I'd keep him in the centre and pair him with either Xhaka/Elneny/Coquelin. I would honestly rather put Ozil/Ramsey out on RW as the front 3 mids are so fluid and interchange at will.
Santi playing on the wings wont happen, Jack or Ramsey... maybe. Santi is now too important in our CM regarding his key role in the build up play from a deep lying CM position. Ozil is who would be more likely to play on the wings if Wenger was to shuffle the lineups. Not sure why any coach would put Santi on the wings at this point in his career when wingers are much more pacier and strong, especially in our squad.

I'd love to see Mahrez come to AFC but we have some strong upcoming wingers too and Ozil is prolly the best one of all of them, he just needs to focus on his defensive responsibilities a little more if he was deployed there tactically.
Journalist Dave Woods (strong links to hierarchy of #afc) says Howe no.1 on shortlist to replace Wenger next year. https://t.co/bDJlDCcN2a


I wouldn't mind this at all, would prefer him shadowing AW first tho
Won't go well with the fan base 😂😂😂
