Rumors that Barca are offering us Denis Suarez for 14M GBP. Chelsea are also interested but Suarez greatly prefers to come play for Emery.

I know he hasn't done much for Barca but was good for other Spanish clubs. If they are really offering him for 14M we have to jump on that.

Would definitely be a cheap replacement for Ramsey. Hopefully it would be one of those situations where a change of scenery really helps the player

Man even with all the defensive absences, Emery is dead set a back 3 it seems

This game has all the markings of ending the streak. Our entire defense is injured, its away to Southampton who've been absolutely terrible and they just brought in a new manager.

Need to show some damn life.

Koscielny doesn't look like he has his feet back under him yet. Been really flat footed

I feel like the last 3-4 matches, refs have simply let teams foul us all over the pitch to break up play.

Sounds like an ugly match. Glad I can't watch.

Just a bad game all around. Leno made big mistakes. Kos doesn't look ready to go (granted we had to rush him back in thanks to suspensions). The makeshift back 3 was in shambles. The Geundouzi-Torriera pairing didn't really work and our attack didn't really test what is typically a very bad back line. Just didn't have any fight today. Definitely raises some concerns about our chances at getting back into the Top 4. The other teams don't lose to the 18th place team.

God I hope Southampton go down. They're such a boogie team to us

Hard to lose to Southampton this year, even away, but Emery and the squad found a way to do it. Same kind of result we've come to know the past decade. Today was very Wenger-esque, and is something we hopefully begin seeing less and less of going forward.

We drew BATE Borisov, a team we beat last year, in the round of 32 for the EL.

Another North London Derby. Never want to lose against spuds, but we are also incredible short with all the injuries and might play a pretty young squad.

I have low expectations today. With the various injuries it may be best to not be in this competition any longer. I hope the focus will be on getting back to champions league and not on the other cups. The squad is just too thin.

Does this mean the Return of the Hleb?

Xhaka as a CB just doesn't make sense to me. Would make more since with Nacho at CB and Xhaka at LB.

Years of AW neglecting the back line. We've had a need to upgrade CB for quite some time but have never done it. At least we mad e an attempt with Sokratis. Could have been better without the little knocks.

Emery needs to figure his **** out with Ozil because we basically fail to create anything without him. We still need pieces at the back and a winger, but I really have no faith in the club actually investing significant money in January

I admit I didn't watch the game but it sounded like we created some changes - ramsey hit the post and miki got a 1v1. Add in that xhaka was playing CB and we were playing a solid attacking side I'd expect us not to create too many chances with our defensive midfielders and fullbacks playing more cautiously.

Probably had 3-4 solid chances in the first half. Faded quickly in the 2nd half. And I absolutely agree that Xhaka as a CB is a two hit problem. He is a better partner for Torriera in the midfield than Doozy and just not good as a CB. I'd have rathered we give Medley a shot in the back rather than playing Xhaka out of position

Lots of rumors that we are looking to offload Ozil in Jan. Hate to lose a player of his caliber but he just doesn't seem to have bought in to Emery's style.

I thought it was dumb to give him an extension and pay raise. Guy has top class attacking skills but fits into very few styles of play.
