Yes, and DM already eliminated AFC from the title race. 5th/6th for us w/ManU or Chelski. New normal.

We should at least target results against ManU and Chelski at home, and even against the Spuds at Wembley. These are winnable games against fellow strugglers. No excuses.

Forget about results for now. Just improve the quality of football and everyone will be on his side. He needs to adapt to the team he has rather that expecting them to change to his ways. Longer term he can shape the squad. But right now he’s got to do a better job with what he has.

If we lose all the big games, I don't think Emery will be in for long at AFC. His mishandling of talented players, inability to attract talent from outside, and quality of football in general, will quickly erode his Goodwill, and Fan's patience, and his tenure will end early next season.
Has been happening to most managers in other clubs.

Since that’s not going to happen, wouldn’t you rather be entertained in the interim?

Meanwhile in Spain, Cazorla just scored a brace against Madrid. So let’s see what we have here...we let go of a top talent for free in summer, and will now spend decent money to get a midfielder with less quality like Denis Suarez. Makes sense.

I think it is normal to let a 34 years old player go and sign a player ten years younger. And I don't think I need to mention his injury. And yes, I like Cazorla.

Carzorla was probably the best player/performer in the last 8 years. I think nobody thought he could recover from the horrendous foot injury. He, alongside Sanchez, Ramsey and Ozil started the mini revival during Wenger's last part of the tenure. The three FA cups in 4 yrs are a dream for most teams for a century.
Great achievement!

Cazorla was a revelation when we started playing him in that deeper CM role. Made a huge difference to our build up play and flow. Without him there we looked disjointed and struggled to play the ball out from deep.

We really need to look into finding someone similar. I often wonder if Iwobi or Ozil could play a similar role in this current team. They'd have to work hard on defence but some players can surpise you when they are given that duty. Cazorla was an example. Rosicky too.

Cazorla could play as an attacking midfielder/forward as well as as a central medio. He really was the last complete footballer we had. Rosicky , again , had everything, but injury devastated his career.
Ozil is an out an out attacking midfielder or withdrawal forward. Don't think he can play central medio where you need to have good snatching/tackling skills also. Sanchez, in some ways was a good snatcher upfield.
Xakha is such a poor replacement for Carzorla/Rosicky. A jack of no trades. Only thing going for him is his long range shooting. Decent.

Would be a class signing, but not happening in a million years. There would be bigger and better teams interested in signing him. All of whom can offer a larger transfer fee, pay him more money and are in a better position to compete for the bigger trophies.
