If Unai can come in and work on a shoestring budget in his first transfer window, signs players in problem areas we have been crying about for more than 12 years. This shows how out of touch and finished wenger was for the past decadw or so. Unai has not spent big (big names) but has tried to at least address our areas of weakness. Looking back I keep asking myself “Was Wenger just delusional or Hallucinating? Thinking that team was perfect in his mind”. Smh

And before anyone says we have to spend like City to be competitive, watch how we perform this season having spent a fraction of what City will spend.

The money argument is an argument of convenience.

Money bags fc just spend 60m on Mahrez alone and that accounts for a few players Arsenal bought in.

Misinslat buys the players, scouts the players and identifies candidates.

Unai would have meetings with him to go over holes in the team and potential players he likes, or would like.

Ultimately though it is down to Misinslat on pulling the trigger and or choosing the target they eventually go for but he and Emery would obviously have discussions.

I suppose the best way to sum it up is, its up to Misinslat but Emery can and will make requests.

To add to that:

Gazidis sets the overall budgets and how far we can extend to.

Milinstat has limitations otherwise he'd be out here bidding on Ronaldo and co.

At the moment, milenstat and gazidis should rightfully be given credit.

Emery can wait for his plaudits until we've seen what he can do with the players we've acquired as that's his main job.

Either way, those 3 plus Saneli who negotiates the deals have f***ing merked it this summer already compared to Wenger and d*** law etc.

What leads you to think that? Because in the world cup he was very disciplined and never got over the halfway line (unless to take a corner).

We'll probbably let him take direct freekicks as we don't have any specialists in that area but as for corners and indirect free kicks I think those will be mainly Ozil and Xhaka

It makes sense for him to take corners unless he's on the edge of the box to pick up scraps and shoot.

That or on keeper to cause interference..

Well with £50m only then yes they have, in years past £50m would of mean't two sh*t players and a 16 yr old we'd never see again.
Tbf if that was the "play it safe" budget they wanted to give Emery before he proves himself with the existing players then yes, you can't fault it, I actually don't even see how you could do better with that amount of funds?

Also tbf to Misinslat he already showed what he can do when he got us one of the most prolific goal scorers in world football for the same price Wenger got Lacazette for.

£60m for a striker with that record in a January window? if the bigger teams hadn't been busy blowing each others loads in the summer during an inflated window spending the likes of 80m on players like Morata, Auba should of at least been worth £80m.
