We need two midfielders and a center back at the very, very least.

then maybe more signings like a alternate right back, another attacking playmaker/number 10 to help with possession who can operate out wide.

Team isn't good enough right now in pure ability.

1 actually, we have Saliba coming in either next season or if we beg Saint Etienne and pay them extra to get him here in January.

Holding is looking becoming a permanent squad player along with Chambers

Luiz is a stop gap, not sure if Sokratis will last with us in the long term so we need a strong leader who can keep us organised.

We desperately need a center mid and attacking mid though. that's more vital.

We should still get Mikhi, El Neny back. We need senior , experienced players to battle wily, tough PL teams. It is a long drawn battle nowadays. Junior players won't be able to cope in a long season.
Remember , were still long way off from the top three, and just 5th win so far.

Wouldn't mind seeing Mkhitarayan under Arteta, as said we can't keep relying on kids.

We've been needing a CM since Ramsey left.

I'd much rather a CM pairing of Torreria and a new CM who can play box to box.

We could also use a top CB.

Maybe its their fitness levels that have been the problem? Players and Arteta have hinted at us not being 'at that level yet' and not being able to keep up what is expected for 90 minutes.

Its new manager bounce finally coming in. The players are working harder but the same issues remain. That's the main difference with Arteta

We score goals due to luck through deflections and from corners. We can't carve teams open during openplay. Arteta ain't going to work miracles in a short space of time but his philosophy is showing however its working mainly due to the effort off the ball.

On the ball while the shape is good and works well building with possession, we have no ball carriers in midfield. Ozil is so f***ing slow in possession and can only pass. Buy a real attacking mid and this team could look ok maybe till the end of the season.

We still badly need another center mid especially if Xhaka still wants to leave.
