At the start of the transfer window I really though Emrey was doing well getting the defensive signings we need in and early but now I'm not so sure especially considering that the transfer window is closing in less than 2 days.

The fact that we are being linked to Vida and Rodriguez is worrying we already have too many old declining central defenders in Sokratis and Kos we don't need to add another to the mix, I'm hoping that the plan is to buy a top quality defender and play him alongside Mustafi who wasn't the best last season but he showed potential in his first season so he deserves another shot IMO.

Loaning Chambers was also and awful decision considering that on current form he was probably our best CB and he's more experienced than Holding/Mavropanos who are the ones in need of a loan.

We still need a winger and bad playing our best CF (PEA) outside because he's fast is criminal our other options Mkhi, Perez, Welbeck, Iwobi, Nelson aren't really natural wingers/average/inexperienced. We could have easily signed any of Malcom, Martins or Shaqiri had we gone in for them early enough before other clubs showed interest.

Also we need a top quality CM who can dictate the tempo it's one of the reason we've been so poor since Caz got injured and Xhaka has failed to play that role.

Why are Ospina, Jenkinson, Perez, Campbell still on the books considering none of them will feature and if they do it won't be for more than 5 games at best where we could just use a youth player instead, I even rate some of them like Martinez but the fact that he's like 1 year younger than Leno and fourth choice says it all really no point in him being here and Perez is a good backup player but for some reason Emery doesn't seem to be fan like Wenger so he may as well go too.

Anyways this window is looking like a 5.5/10 so far IMO and obviously emery needs time as he can't build his own squad in one window but I feel like it could have been better considering some of the bargains available but anyway only time will tell I guess.

Then you were under a false impression from the start ............ because Emery doesn't make the signings or authorize them, so why is he accountable in your eyes?

As Gazidis was so fond of reminding u, Unai Emery is just the team coach, he does not make the signings, that job is Misinslat's .......... but before you blame Misinslat consider, he can only sign players with funds, as most know our budget this window so far is operating on a lowly £50m.

With players like Torriea, Guendouzi and others he's managed to get all around that budget cap, he's actually done a great job.

CB has to be our next investment though.

Not Emery’s fault but look at the goalkeeper signings Liverpool and Chelsea have made compared to us. We are done for.

As far as i can see the structure we have, Emery tells which positions to fill and prepares a shortlist while Sven goes out and buys provided they fit in the budget. Looks like Kroenke is too busy with his takeover and Sven/Emery can only watch.

Perhaps in the future. As it stands this summer the players were identified before emery was given the job. That’s why he’s lobbying for Nzonzi. Unsuccessfully it seems.

I think what's clear now is that the signing of players is a joint effort between numerous men at the club so we can't attribute a player's success or failure to one person, even if this is hard for some people to accept.

His hold over English has improved so much since his arrival. He is definitely working hard in every area.

Yes.

His enthusiasm is there for all to see as well.

I think we'll see him pacing up and down like a jack rabbit during those big games.

Wouldnt actually surprise me if Cech started on Sunday but I want it to be Leno, he is the future now.

How the hell is Xhaka getting a captaincy spot? Hes a headless chicken at times and even refuses to stay with whoever needs marking.

Scouting failure if Cech starts ahead of Leno.

Seems like Xhaka will get the nod over Matteo then.

I can forgive Unai if Mesut is wearing the armband
