Not pretty. Glad match is level at the half.

I think Emery needs to start thinking about adapting his system to our players. This high line isn't working and teams are cutting right through us

Give me Lichtsteiner for Bellerin, Torreira for Xhaka and Lacazette for Rambo

Lacazette needs to be starting, he brings energy every time

Nice lucky bounce/deflection.

That was about as bad of a 15 second stretch you can have for a defender

Torreira needs to be starting somehow, he bosses the midfield when he's in

If you'd told me that Welbz was gonna have goals before Aubazette I'd have laughed at you

He'll get there eventually, I think, but Emery is (and I think long has) been one who enjoys early substitutes that bring energy to take advanatage of tired opposing legs.

He's all about his team being proactivehence the press, high line, etc.and that ability to put in starter quality fresh in the second half allows for proactivity.

News coming out in the last hour that Nelson is moving to Hoffenheim on a permanent transfer
wangus12

I've seen both permanent transfer and also that he is gonna sign a new contract and go on loan for the season. Losing him is going to be a big mistake

Sign & loan or sell with a buyback clause I can live with. He needs minutes and Hoffenheim has no issue playing young players.
wangus12
How long do you want to ignore this user?
AG
I'll take that. He needs first team minutes, but I'd like him to still be anchored to us. He is only 18 and still has plenty of time.
TXAggie2011

It would be a real shame to lose him but if he won't sign a contract, I guess I would get it. Sort of.

This growing trend of the youngsters not wanting to stick around has to end quickly or Arsenal is in serious trouble.
wangus12
How long do you want to ignore this user?

Yeah I don't get it. Young players seem to just hang around other clubs, but if they are starting by 18/19 for us then they leave.

Definitely seeing most reports now saying that it will be a season long loan after he extends his contract.

Stupid rumor that Lacazette wants to leave. Still waiting for the damn day that we play him and Auba up front to start.

Torreira's agent says its a pity that he didn't join Napoli so he could play under Ancelloti.

Rambo's agency said yesterday they had big news to announce today and also had a deal to win a signed Rambo jersey so possibly some contract news.

That's a much better deal

The article makes the point that I've thought about with Nelson...Nelson can play out wide more naturally and willingly and it seems he ought to fill a role on the roster moving forward.

I guess he's been playing some with City, but I had totally forgotten about this guy.

We drew Brentford in the Carabao Capital One Carling League Cup

For Europa League, we are drawn in Group E with Sporting Lisbon, Qarabag FK, and FC Vorskla.

Pretty sure Qarabag (located in Azerbaijan) is the farthest team east besides Astana.

Also Mkhitaryan won't be allowed to play in the away game against Qarabag or in the Europa League final. Both games take place in Baku in Azerbaijan and they are not allowing Armenians into the country at this time.

Also Nelson to Hoffenheim is done. They gave him the #9 shirt so hopefully that means a ton of playing time this season.

Very glad the Reid's contract extension is official.


In other news, Emery apparently banned juice with added sugar.
