Monaco has some really good young players.

They will laugh at Theo during practice sessions.

How do you say "LOL" in french?

The spine of our team is not good enough to win the league. We have an ailing Cech in goal. And our defence?

Mertesacker - coming back off a year out and retiring anyway
Kos - declining, dodgy long passing, weak in the air and makes boneheaded decisions in one-on-one situations
Holding - very young, inexperienced and unproven over consistent period
Chambers - also inexperienced & very young with only 1 season of first team football
Mustafi - still finding his feet, dives in too much and erratic
Gabriel - see above without the 'finding his feet' part. Also regularly injured

6 centre backs none of whom are world class IMO.

Then there's our centre midfield options.

Coquelin - tactically naïve and technically lacking. Went off the boil last season
Ramsey - useless defensively and slow to release the ball offensively. His only purpose is scoring goals.
Xhaka - Much better in a 3-5-2 but runs in quicksand and needs a mobile partner. Guaranteed to miss games through suspension
Cazorla - Nobody knows whether he'll return to his level or if he'll return at all. Questionable if he can play with Xhaka
Ox - Capable but inconsistent. Largely down to being used in so many different positions
Elneny - Jack of all trades but master of none. Carbon copy of Flamini
Wilshere - Talented but perennially injured, and will probably be sold. Hasn't developed
Maitland-Niles - Looks raw and not yet ready. Joe Willock looking more deserving of a first team squad place. Both inexperienced at this level

Again nobody remotely close to world class.

We have a lot of average players in critical positions, so to me Lemar, as talented as he is, is not going to take us to the next level. We conceded 44 goals last season, and a large part of that is we need to use numbers to defend because we don't have enough individual defensive quality and physicality.

Starting to worry that Laca will be our only big money transfer this summer. Would be typical Arsenal!!


Well why do we need a winger when we can keep Giroud up front and turn Lacazette into a winger?

Wins all round right?

In seriousness though if we're going to miss Lemar this year then keep Sanchez and buy Mahrez who has one foot out the door.

This deal is as dead as our tittle challenge.

Title?

As of right now, not even good enough for top 4.

We still dont have a proper midfield, the problem that has buried us for last two seasons.

Other teams are not static. They are all looking to improve.

Both Manchester teams have improved their team in the market and continuing to do so.

Liverpool has added Salah which will make their attack even more potent and are looking to add Naby and Virgil. Even without any additions, Klopp's team is going to be better next season after a full year with him but they are making additions on top of that.

Chelsea and Spurs should be better than us simply because of their defence and better tactical managers.

In short, Chelsea, Spurs, and Liverpool have better chemistry and tactical managers than we do and Manchester teams are loading up on talent.

This team desperately needs two more quality singings, one in the midfield and another on the wings.

The Lacazette move that we have made should have been made a couple seasons ago. We are playing catchup.

It's not your money.

Your won't any of it if they dont buy.

It goes into Stan's pocket.

And if they don't buy him they will spend quarter of that on some scrub like Welbeck.

This team is starved for quality players and here we are making a run at one of th best young prospects who supposedly wants to play for us and our fans are acting like we are Barcelona or Madrid.

Just be thankful that we are actually going for him and pray that we pull it off.

That's not true though, is it? It goes into the club's funds, for further renovation of facilities, building of new stadiums, etc. Stan is just paid a modest consulting fees

Even if true, none of it interests me more than money being spent on players.

I follow the team to watch quality players on the pitch in an Arsenal jersey.
