Mertesacker may be out for 5 months with a knee injury ....

wtf, doomed.
Finally watched the game last night and was impressed with ox and debuchys performances. Still on the fence between who's number two at right back tho with Jenks and debuchy once both fit.
Jenkinson, but he's still recovering from injury, so Debuchy #2 at the moment. But he's linked with a permanent transfer to Borduex or however you spell that French team, he went to.
lol at our fans, smh. maybe arteta didnt even have instagram account back then. sigh

I remember this also happened with cech, but he didn't have instagram back then with chelsea.
fans can be very stupid indeed.. why they dont go bother and look at his twitter account?? will see bunch of Arsenal pictures and how much he loved to be here.. Really people forgot how emotional he was the last game? Just fukking embarrassing
I would rather prefer to get a quality CB than R.Mahrez for arsenal.To me, the problem at CB is almost equivalent to the gap at the striker department.You can never win anything with Mert at the back and Theo at the front.
I think we should try and score more than our opponents.
+1
I think we should revert back to the old days of boring and gitty football, winning with the odd goal. best defense wins championships.
+1
The best defence in the world will guarantee you 38 X 0-0 draws but goals win games.

For me the attack was more a problem area than defence last season.
I want to see Arsenal with more flair again, we were dull last season.. I want to watch entertaining football, not boring football

And ye defence wasnt the biggest problem last season, we just couldnt freaking score.
@Deffyduck I disagree with you, the problem last season was both offense and defend and the injury crisis in our midfield. We lacked a defensive midfielder, a world class striker to rotate with Giroud, as well as another center back.

If you recall that Liverpool away match, that ended in 3-3, that was a game we should've won, but due to bad defensive display, we ended up with just a point.

Our offense wasn't the problem up until December, then the real problem began during the Winter period (AS USUAL), where most of our midfielders were injured, which included Carzola, the man who pull the string in our midfield. Prior to the start of the 2015/16 season, Wenger was stubborn and refused to bring in another midfielder. As the result, we lost the Premier League Title to Leicester City, because we lost one of the main midfielder and didn't have another midfielder who can step in, because Wenger relied on Flamini, instead of finding another midfielder to add depth, knowing our damn injury crisis. We lost the title because Wenger was stubborn and didnt bring in another quality striker to rotate with Giroud. Yes we brought Welbeck, but we all know Welbeck has a injury record, even at United. Wenger was stubborn, and went into a season with 3 quality defenders, which one of them are Mert., who isn't getting younger.

We were unable to play effective without Carzola pulling the string. The pairing of Coquelin & Santi was the main reason we' were so good in the midfield, but when Sant went down, we couldn't maintain our form.

Wenger took a risk of going into the season with little to no depth at midfielder and we lacked depth in striker and defensive departments as well. As the result, we paid the price of losing the Title.

LACK OF PROPER TRANSFERS IN THE SUMMER IS THE FUKING PROBLEM PAST COUPLE OF YEARS. I REALLY DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW A TOP MANAGER LIKE WENGER CAN'T SEE THAT! It's frustrating man.
These players will be unavailable for the USA Tour:

Per (knee), Gabriel (tonsillitis), Jenks (recovering from torn ACL), Asano and Gnabry (Olympics.)
https://twitter.com/Arsenal/status/757563253996265473

lol so basically chambers, holding and possibly monreal as cb's for the msl all-star game.
my predicted XI:

Cech; Bellerin, Chambers, Monreal, Gibbs; Xhaka/Coq, Santi; Campbell, Ox/Iwobi, Walcott; Akpom
If you guys get Mahrez and Lacazette, you are surely title contenders. Maybe CL semis or final also.
We wont get Mahrez it's 100% a fake story won't happen
+3
Mahrez and lacazette won't take us to CL semis. No way. Barca, RM, bayern, juve, Atlético, dortmund, psg, man city
+3
Title contenders, maybe yes, maybe no. but huge nope on UCL semifinalist. dont even wanna think about ucl even at this point. just focus on epl and maybe fa cup too
Milik any one? or you guy dont rate him i thought he was really good he is only 22
+1
sublime goal by riyad mahrez against celtic. made it look effortless. if that was sanchez, we'd have hailed him on level terms with MSN and BBC.
+1
he is available tbh, even their manager is worried he might leave. I still wondering why AW is still wondering to sign this guy up or not. this signing would be much better than vardy. If AW has no problem signing vardy, then mahrez should be an easy YES. Sorry to walcott and chambo, they gotta wait for their chances.
Diontan... Transfers are rarely that straight forward
+3
I mean, he is a midfielder. AW loves dem mids
Diontan524: this aint fifa dude.

Shaymoose17: Wenger also likes trains ... *cue for Cloudst*
If we get Mahrez I'll be very happy with our transfer we really need goal scorer with him and Sanchez .
Agreed, giroud has the durability to play lots of games I don't really care where we add goals from as long as we add goals. Sanchez and Mahrez can make up for not having an elite central striker
Still think a CB is needed, not convinced at all with Gab, but I'd be very happy with our attack. I think Mahrez's trickery could lead to a lot of cross to the front post where Giroud excels.
Guys stop hyping Giroud up..he is bang average!! We need a better striker
+1
lol TimidGunnar we not hyping him up.. I do think he is good striker, but its not enough of him he needs help.. We don't need change the striker, we need to add. Giroud brings a lot of good to the team
+5
changing giroud for another striker doesn't solve the problem. If you can't find an elite CF you have to find goals elsewhere. We aren't hyping giroud, just saying mahrez could add 15 goals plus 20 from alexis, 20 from giroud (and those are all low estimates)
Giroud may not add goals, but he can play a fulcrum as good as any CF in the world IMO. If you have Sanchez/Mahrez as the LF and RF in a 4-3-3 then Giroud can actually be a very very important cog in the system.

Mahrez can be a huge acquisition. So much so that I'd make Arsenal a legit contender for the title if you get him. I wish City bought him outright instead of running after Sane.
+3
@TimidGunnar, let me say this again: Giroud is not the problem, having ONLY Giroud is the problem.
+7
Well that statement implies we have no other striker other than Giroud. Walcott, Welbeck, Sanogo, Akpom, Campbell?

Btw, we've seen a few glimpses of Ozil playing CF/False 9 and he was pretty good. I think he did it twice when we were down to 10 men. Confuses the heck out of defenders with his clever movement and quick thinking. It is an option Wenger could probe further.
YG well said, summed it up really well what I wanted to say :D
+1
filsuf, except that walcott, sanogo and campbell is no better than giroud, whereby we are already crying on Giroud is not good enough to fire us to win the epl. Besides, campbell is not a striker and welbeck had infected with arsenal DNA (injury) ever since he joined, so as walcott and sanogo.
@Filsuf My statement implies that there aren't any strikers, currently at Arsenal that's better than Giroud. The players that you named are either injury prone, average or below average players: Walcott, Welbeck, Campbell and Sanogo.

1. Walcott: he's effective as a wide player, useless as CF/ST, also inconsistent.
2. Welbeck: injury prone, has potential, but has been unlucky with injuries.
3. Campbell: a false 9 type of player, inconsistent and doesn't fit in our system.
4. Sanogo: young, inconsistent, raw, below average for his age, and I can keep going. lol

@Diontan524 Welbeck has been struggling with injuries since his Manchester United days, not just at Arsenal.
Giroud is squad player type he is not good enough as a starter every match. I would like to see us sign atleast Chicharito or Bacca or Lacazette or Icardi or another option their is no striker in market we could sign. We need Benzema, Suarez, Higuain, or lewandoski or Muller or Aguero or Aubamayeng Calibre but none of them will neither sell or stingy Arsenal owner and board will not sign them. So realisticly we can sign the first options not the second group i just mention.
+1
yes we had a world class striker few years back. he was banging goals everywhere. remember that? he was our MAIN and arguably only outlet for goals. we were praying to the seven gods he didn't get injured each match, we were depending TOO MUCH on him.

after that c*** left, goals were almost shared equally across the forwards. we were more of a team. no way in hell I'd want to depend goals from ONE "world-class" striker anymore.

don't you get it? stop wanting another "better" strikers just because of your biased pure hatred towards Giroud.

What we need is a good complement striker to play off Giroud / play with team mates. Easy example Giroud - Griezmann partnership in the euros. there's a reason Deschamps play Giroud as starters alongside a "world-class" striker.
A footballing reason I'm sure he'll understand more than you do.
wtf, chill out. we're gonna resign Lord Bendtner anyways. the easiest option after all. lol
SKool...no goalkeeper has EVER kept a clean sheet when Lord Bendtner scored a goal. He is just that good.
Arshavin with a solo goal for FC Kairat, nice chip too.
