True. I'm greatful Arsenal controls their destiny despite the missed opportunities. Chelsea and Man U have underwhelmed. I'm optimistic based on Europa League performances.

Sounds like we reached an agreement to bring in a young Brazilian winger Gabriel Martinelli

Seeing rumors that we made another run at Edu for Technical Director and this go was much more productive. Claims that the signing of Gabriel Martinelli is atleast partially due to Edu's interest in the player. Also seeing some links to a young Brazilian RB and DM. Both were linked last summer (I believe) but are popping up again with the rumors of Edu.

Technically the end of season is after 38 mathches in the EPL.

Started really well, but we slow down far to quickly as we come into the final 3rd. Need to get a goal

How the **** does Steve Bould still have job after years and years of atrocious defending. Coupled with the fact that we seem to be mentally inept at playing outside of the Emirates.

Just for once I'd like to see some actual guts from this team. There is no desire or fight about any of them. Another year of this level of mediocrity coupled with the fact that we don't have an owner willing to invest will probably cripple the club. A team with an older history of success that is now your average mid table club

We have all this possession and we don't try anything. Guess they can't score if we just pass it around the back.

Two bad losses in a row. Four points seemed a reasonable expectation going into last weekend but Arsenal couldn't even grab one point.

I was typing this damn near exact post after Sunday's loss, then backed away. All I can chalk it up to is, besides Bould's own incompetence, Wenger did not seem capable of putting together and retaining a back 4 worthy of top flight football, for which Arsenal is still paying the piper.

I don't want to see a back 4 for the rest of the season. I don't want to see Emery get cute with the ****ing lineup. We have 5 games left. The best players available have to play. No rotation. We play a back 3 (Sokratis, Koss, Monreal) with AMN and Kola as wingbacks. That group in that formation for the rest of the year. The back 4 hasn't worked well all season for us. No point to continue it.

I'm concerned that we are almost a year in and it feels like nothing has changed defensively. I know we'll be on the market for players, but I doubt we can afford the actual level we'll need to fix things. I'm not sure how you can fix the away game mentality. Emery's teams have always had an issue playing away from home so I'm not sure he can fix it.

I imagine we will see several players that see a lot of minutes currently on their way out in the summer, but who we'll replace them with is a concern. It showed in January that recruiting people to the club that we need is going to be difficult.

Give me more additions like Kolasinac and Sokratis and less like Mustafi please.

If we miss CL I think it may become a good deal more likely that we end up moving some vets like Ozil, PAE, Laca, etc... whether we truly want to or not. While it's highly unlikely, it kind of make the conspiracy theorist in me wonder if Emery wasn't told to throw some matches to miss top 4 this year so we could offload some bad salary and rebuild in his image.

Nothing convinces other teams to take on high salaries like underperformance from those high salaries.
