I'm not even sure that's much of an improvement :rofll: :rofll:


My worry here is Auba is proving to not be great as a CF over his productivity as a LWF where he was hitting 20+ goals per season yet we're jamming him into a position he's falling flat in.

As you say, the rest of the team is underwhelming however ............ even Neves maybe not quality wise but certainly playing style wise is an improvement on Xhaka.

Its not that he's so much better its more about what he does is where the improvement comes from.

Play martinelli and pepe as a front two and give teirney and saka the reign to roam the flanks

I just hope we don’t spend the entire summer trying to sign Odegard. Real will stiff us at the eleventh hour. We need to move on from him.

That's pretty underwhelming list right there. Not one proven player.

Finally the great Wenger Out rebuild is underway. Why settle for top four when you can get top eight?

Since 2013, Arsenal made over 30 first team signings (excluding free agents) and are yet to make a profit on the sale of a single one of them. The last 2 players Arsenal signed for money and made a profit on was Giroud (signed 2012) and Chamberlain (signed 2011).

Don't worry, we'll make plenty when it's Saka and ESR's turn to leave.

Kolasinac we would've made a profit, shame the deal fell through. Rest have been trash oldies or let their contract run down.

More signings like Martinelli, even as a gamble would be better for this crap model we are following.

@David_Ornstein: Arsenal preparing move for Brighton defender Ben White. No club-to-club contact yet but expected in due course. Could take ~£40-50m — unlikely to be insurmountable for #AFC. Interest 1st reported by @johncrossmirror.


Wtf

What about saliba?!

Seriously this club man.

We're playing trash all over the pitch and we're gonna drop ~ 50 mil on ANOTHER centerback?????. How is another CB a priority???????????


We better have 150 mil to spend or something, otherwise this is a joke

LOL Saliba's never going to kick a ball for the senior XI.

Arteta has been acting like he doesn't exist for over a year, and it's worked. All we have done is send him the message that he isn't wanted.

Couldn't we afford Kounde for that amount ?

If we could get £80m combined for Bellerin, Chambers, Holding and Mavropanos it could work:


Adams (Cedric) --------- White (Saliba) ---------- Gabriel (Mari) ---------- Tierney (?)

muh English core

Arteta's dream CB lineup is probably Holding, Stones and White.
