Tough start with Villa, spurs and City away in 1st 5 games of season.

The last 9 fixtures of season in a run in all look winnable apart from Liverpool (away)
 
Is there any point Arsenal having hale end Academy?

The club when selling youngsters that don't Make it to 1st time are sold at pathetic prices (compared to Chelsea / man city academy players)

More and more academy players are refusing to sell contracts and moving on

Zero "new" academy players have been brought through as regular starters or squad players whilst current manager is in charge.

Shambles really

Shambles really

There are a few players on the brink and I would expect at least one to be more involved next season.

Yea we don't sell academy players well at all. To be fair we got good money for Balogun but that was after a couple of loan spells.

ESR Nelson Eddie should bring in some money this year but again they have been around for a while.

I think part of the issue is that we have never had a good cup run for the last few seasons. Carabao Cup and Early FA Cup is the ideal time to give a couple 1st team exposure. Even Europa league group stages.

I will criticize Arteta on the last group game of UCL when it was the perfect opportunity to play youngsters but he didn't. Even in an earlier game when they were a few goals up with loads of time to go.

I think if the above mentioned players leave with a couple of others then the youth should come up the pecking order. Problem is that Arteta doesn't trust the fringe players so the best time to give them mins is dead rubbers or when game is done. Hopefully when they are gone some others will come through.
 
England midfielder Declan Rice on playing more forward for Arsenal:

"I only moved into the eight position after Christmas.

"My first discussions with him [Mikel Arteta] was to go to Arsenal and play as a six.

"But, as we started to play more Areteta liked me in the eight role and it gave us more balance - I can play both and I am happy to play eight or six. It is the managers decision I will go out and give 100% no matter what."

I think only 2 players close two fringes were Walters and Nwaneri. Walters is looking to leave. I can't see Nwaneri, getting much game time either.

Nketiah and Nelson should never have been given new contracts, that's was the club just using is usual cheap tactics instead of buying better quality. Both players have been here to long. Both should go join a Palace or Bournemouth type team.

The not trusting fringe players will only be exposed even more this season. With expanded CL, the club won't take the league cup seriously.

The last 2 CL group games are now in January (8 games per team) so Arsenal's fixtures in January / Feb will be, so I can see FA cup being binned off as well. So yet another season with domestic trophies in the bin

4: Brighton (a)
11: FA cup 3rd Round
14: Tottenham (h)
18: Aston Villa (h)
21/22: CL match Day 7
25: Wolves (a)
29: CL match Day 8
February

1: Man City (h)

The way CL has been expanded out its going to force the top sides to show how good their squad depth really is in January. That will come after a busy December period as well.
 
Arsenal valuing nketitah at 50M for any selling clubs interested 🤦‍♂️

This is why Arsenal are never taken seriously In transfers market and also why no fringe players get sold, usual loans and rub down contract and then give players away for free.
 
Favorites to win the league.

Also, there is no point in complaining about academy prospects not getting chances. Arsenal’s ambition is to win the league not to develop players.

Any academy player who is not good enough to take Arsenal to a different level and doesn’t want to stay should be allowed to leave. It is not a problem.

Another year, same expectations from Arteta and his team to win the league.
But God knows what happens to them in latter stages of the league.

It's EPL bro, their players mostly English are always over-valued.

There is English tax on players which I understand

But when a player has done nothing at current club to justify his 100k wages. No club with even any common sense is going to pay 30M for such a player, let alone 50M

You clearly don’t understand how transfers work. Arsenal valuing him at £50m is what will enable the club to sell him for around £30m.

If Arsenal open talks at £30m and start inviting offers at that price, good luck getting anything more than £20m.

Arsenal were brilliant last season. The way they finished the season was exceptional.

That poor run of form in December was very damaging otherwise Arsenal would have run away with it. Nonetheless, important lessons to be learned and they will definitely be favorites this time around.

City are favourites, evens . Arsenal are 2/1, 2nd favourites.

When Liverpool won the PL it was also a tough start with fixtures but went on to win most of the first 10 .

Arsenal need wins early , falling behind City early will make it tough
 
Yeah let’s wait for the genius Opta Super Computer.
😂

Just like football , you have no clue how favourites are determined. These are based on bets placed & who the punters deem as favourites there after .

Even with out this only a fool ,ignorant fanboy or an Arteta fanboy would suggest Arsenal are favourites with pep & city still around .

You predict Arsenal to win the league?

Most people who place bets don’t know anything, they lose more money than they win. Similarly, those who believe in Opta’s predictor don’t have a clue as we saw last season.

Arsenal and City are equally good now, the points table last season and their H2H results show that.

This is down to the brilliance of Arteta. After coming so close twice, you have to back him to do on the third attempt because Arsenal will even stronger this season.

I expect Arsenal to win the league and even if they don’t, they will still finish above Liverpool.

New thread and same clueless logic, don't change habit of a life time.

Teams being linked to nketitah are Palace, Fulham and Brentford.

So let's deal with "facts" rather then "nonsense"

Palace highest earners are eze and olise (In process of leaving) who are both on 100K a week.

Brentford highest earners are on 50K a week.

Fulhams highest earners are on Leno (130K) and jiminez (100K)

-------

Nketiah is on 100K a week I doubt he's going to take a wage cut to leave, when he can stay at Arsenal play a few cup games and pocket 100K week for doing nothing. Are any of these clubs going to want a non-proven PL striker become one of their highest, if not their highest wage earners by signing him.

On top of a 50M fee for a striker who has 19 goals in 116 games (1 goal every 5/6 games approximately)

An unrealistic price tag and wages which most clubs won't even take a risk on, why would a club make a unproven player one of its highest earners? That's just going to cause unrest with other players and what they are earning.

Even at 30M + having to pay 100K week with current PSR rules in place is a huge gamble. Pretty much will eat up a lot of smaller teams budgets.

Arsenal stupid game nketitah and Nelson contracts they didn't deserve and most Smaller clubs will pretty much be put off by the transfer fee + wage out on the player.

This isn't a balagun situation where the player went and proved himself on loam and effectively made a decent transfer fee possible.

Ed is **** poor when it comes to players sales and that's why Arsenal are now not far off breaching PSR regulations. Demanding 50M for a proven flop, just shows how useless Edu is when it comes to player sales.

All thats left if is for the kronkes cheerleader to turn up and say

But but the kronkes have invested heavily since they took full ownership.

Nothing like opta .

You are as clueless as Arteta was with playing zinchenko . Bookies make money , their method sets the odds . Favourites are determined by them , not you .

3rd time you have predicted Arsenal to win the league at some stage .

My prediction 4th, bottled your chances twice & now it will be much tougher .

🤣 yeah brilliant last season.

Got hammered by West ham in LC
Bottled FA cup game vs liverpool
Got knocked out of CL by 1st decent side they played
Didn't win the league (20 seasons now)

4th Trophyless season in a row, according to chief cheerleader thats a brilliant season. Good to see standards are still in the bin.
 
Screenshot_20240625_164408_Chrome.jpg

Comedy has started early in pre-season.

Arsenal have made no changes to squad as of this current moment in time. So how are they stronger? Utter nonsense as usual.

I expect to win the lottery anytime I buy a lottery ticket, but but if I don't win it then its ok.

Absolutely cowardly disclaimer like you did last season.

Why not grow a pair and rather than "I expect" nonsense why don't come up with "I predict Arsenal will win title"

But your lack of faith and hollow cheerleading being exposed early as per usual.

But but I expect Arsenal to win 2 PL titles in next (insert 4,5,6,7 etc...) is your normal comical claim.
 
When Liverpool won the PL it was also a tough start with fixtures but went on to win most of the first 10 .

Arsenal need wins early , falling behind City early will make it tough
Only time City failed to win it was because Liverpool went off like a steam train from game one and City weren't able to keep up. It will take a similar effort from any title challenger wanting to take City's crown.

With CL group stages now being 8 fixtures (with 2 in january) it means any PL side in CL will pretty much be playing weekend and midweek games all of January, this after the usual busy December fixtures. We saw how Arsenal made a dogs dinner of balancing different competitions in Artetas entire reign at the club. Unless Arsenal do some serious business in transfer market this summer it will be trophyless season number 5 coming up.

Opta predicts 100% chance of same copy paste, repeat posts containing Arteta cheerleading, followed by usual excuses and disclaimers 🤭

I don’t give a rat’s behind to what bookies say and think. I don’t bet and I have my own prediction.

Your prediction of Arsenal finishing 4th next season is laughable but then again, you predicted the same last season as well and we saw how that turned out.

No one is doing much business right now because of international competitions. This is basic common sense and it amazes me that I have to explain everything to you.

Arsenal will do their business in July-August like most teams.

It was a fantastic season. The fans are happy and the club is full of confidence to go again next season.

You have no right to celebrate when Arsenal win the league with Arteta because you have no faith in him.

You haven't made a prediction, you said you "expect" that's not a prediction.

Go learn the difference between expect and predict.

Your embarrassing yourself again as usual.

Only fans that are happy are the losers with no standards that are happy with progress. Football like any team sports are judged on trophies and titles.

I cudnt care less who the Arsenal manager is. Its Arsenal football club, not Arteta FC. The sooner you realise that the better. 4 seasons without a trophy is embarrassing for any big club.

When Arsenal win trophies I will celebrate how I like.

It's losers like and a few others are reason Arsenal haven't win trophies in last 4 years as their is no accountability for failure. Its actually embarrassing, you don't see Real Madrid, Man city etc.. celebrating failure.

4th is no different to 2nd . Fans who do Bhangra over 2nd with an empty cabinet will be happy with 4th too .

Arteta seems more sensible now , looking for an out an out striker . Havetz is being ridiculed by German fans atm .

It arsenal get a better striker , a few more strong additions to the squad , it would be fair to predict 2nd or even winners but I think injuries will come into play for Arsenal this season

There is a difference between fighting for the title and finishing 2nd and fighting to get into the UCL and finishing 4th.

When you fight for the title, it shows that you are on the right track. When you fight for top four, it shows that you still need to spend huge money just to fight for the title.

Germany don’t know how to get the best out of him. They are so clueless they were playing him as a LWB earlier this year before Arteta turned his career around.

Arsenal will finish top two even if they don’t make a single signing this season.

So only took an hour to flip flop. One minute it's "expecting Arsenal to win league and being stronger"

Then it's finishing top 2.

Contradictory nonsense exposed as usual.
 
Gudogan, kroos, musiala, wirtz aren't used to playing with a donkey up front. They are use to playing with top class and world class strikers. Not playing with a plastic statue

Apart from a honeymoon period FA cup Arteta has won nothing , zilch , nada, in now 5th season .

He could be competing and you get your pension without winning , you’d still me cheering him on 😂.

Arsenal is a big club , it’s spent money , it’s time for Arteta to deliver the PL or CL or the club needs to move on . Let’s see if he relays on havertz to score 20 + pl goals or wakes up & strengthen the squad all round to win silverware, even a domestic double . Poor cabinet of Arteta, feeling pain

Arteta cheerleader has no interest in winning titles, CL.

As long as team finishes above Liverpool this fraud is happy. This sums up the 🤡 in fan base. No accountability.

Interested to know who you think will finish higher. Don't give the nonsense answer of its all the same. Yes at the end of the season 2-4th finish with the same but i am asking you who will finish 2nd 3rd ahead of Arsenal not which one means more.

Thanks

Also if anyone bottled it last season it was Liverpool. Top for the most and also super computer predictions had them to go on and win after game 30 I think.

You bottled it last season and Arsenal the season before. Just accept it

Reuell Walters & Amario Cozier-Duberry have both left Arsenal, following the expiry of their contracts at the club.

Good luck to both and any other talented youngsters that want to leave. No academy players are going to be brought through at 1st team level under current clueless management

Pep is the perfect Coach to copy. A lot of Arsenal fans get defensive but who is better to clone than one of the greatest managers ever.

I mean if we are getting technical Fat Sam and Tony Pulis used to do the 4 CB thing back in the day way before pep.

No coach has replicated any of Peps styles of play or tactical formations and subsequently then beaten Pep regularly to titles etc..

Mourinho, Conte and klopps Titles vs Pep in La liga and PL, we're done by those managers playing their own brand of football. Similarly Real Madrid in Europe play their own way.

Arsenal essentially just seem to Copy what City do 6-12 months after City have done it. On top of that you have to have a large pool of players that can be trusted to play that way.

A side from tactics, Arsenal need to fill all the holes in the squad for once in this transfer window, also get rid of the deadwood. Simply no excuses not to compete on all fronts next season. We will also see how serious the kronkes are about winning titles. The usual 1 marquee signing and then nothing else of substance is not showing ambition

Liverpool would have finished higher if Klopp had another season but new manager it’s hard to stay , Arsenal should be higher imo but if Slot makes the quality squad click LFC could win the title with 90 pts.

Liverpool never expected to finish, may have bottled it arguably in previous seasons but not last season. Besides Liverpool wins regular silverware, all that matters esp the big two , Arsenal until they win one of those are just a good gimmick.

As you honestly stated, Arteta has to go if empty handed again after 5 seasons of dust .
 
Acc to the Mirror Real Madrid want Saliba . If true , it would be a disgrace if they let him go .

Cool. I respect you have stuck your neck out to say that Liverpool will win the league and even if they don't they will finish higher than Arsenal.

Bear in mind you are saying this with the squad as is today. No excuses later if you don't sign anyone decent.

Talking of signing's - Liverpool were strongly linked with Calafiori and as it stands Arsenal are leading the chase. Lets see what happens. But if he does sign for Arsenal it debunks your constant theory that players would prefer Liverpool over Arsenal.

Peace

I honestly can't see any justification of him staying barring maybe a FA Cup win. Which would be great but kinda underwhelming in the grand scheme of things. We need the Big 1 for him to cement a couple more years after next.

Domestic cups are the bare minimum and gloss over cracks albeit silverware in the end. Which is what its all about.
 
Every fan is different. Carabao cup is lovely. You get your day at Wembley etc get a trophy lift. Can say to other fans you won something etc etc etc.

For me personally. I would have ended last season with the same feeling it ended with even if we had won the Carabao Cup. My disappointment in missing out on the league would be the exact same. No Rumbelows Cup would gloss over that,

In Isolation Worthington cup is cool but my feeling is yea whoop whatever.
 
Just 3 years? 🤔
What i miss?

I meant Title races. They hit differently. Missing out on Top 4 is missing out at qualifying for another competition. Not the same feeling for me as disappointing as it is.

Europa and Cup exits hurt but not as much as a 38 game season and coming up short when its in your grasp.
 
Interesting, what you basing this on?
Liverpool will be finding their feet with their new manager next season.

Man City I believe are in a downward trend too. They've won the treble, missed on on a couple of trophies last season, the magic of tap-in merchant Haaland is over too, and KDB looks like will miss most of the season through injury.

Man U will be finding their feet too after the mass clear out this summer.

The rest are not a threat. Chelsea will be Chelsea, more money than sense, and lookout for board level restructuring, and the likes of Villa will be concentrating on CL. Spurs will be focused on qualifying for CL,

Basically the top 6 clearout/restructuring/refocus next season will benefit Arsenal.

Yeah I get that Liverpool win have to get use to a new manager, they will need new signings to close the gap on city.

City yeah they could see Ederson and KDB go, so interesting to see who they bring in this summer.

Arsenal have done no transfer business in or out, so for me their is no evidence to say they can get over the line, nor they will compete on all 4 fronts. With the expanded CL, the domestic cups will go in bin again. Unless Arsenal fill the holes in squad. The season coming up will be no different to the last 4, trophyless.

I make full judgement and prediction once Transfer window closes.
 
Lol it was in answer to the question you posted as to what makes him think arsenal will win league. 😂😂😂
🤣🤣 but I was still wondering which team would be silly enough to buy him
 
Anyone thinking Arsenal don't need a striker and a certain German Donkey is enough is deluding themselves. Not clinical enough.
 
Edu being useless as ever when it comes to bringing in or selling players.

With difficult start Arsenal have fixture wise, you would want new players in early to the squad. Same goes for outgoings

He is to busy celebrating being in the job. He got some sort of Plaque.

I assume he is working on the Calafiori deal as that seems imminent.

Plaque? Pretty much sums this club up. Every transfer windows he's busy on holiday, having bbqs and other stuff.

Rather then focusing on the job at hand, I can see this being yet another window with holes still in squad and players that should have been offloaded not being doing so.

Any using PSR as an excuse when it comes to money to spend, feel free to look at Edu being useless at his job and kronkes putting none of their money towards transfer.

The last few transfer windows we've need a midfielder, Right winger, striker and yet again instead money is being spent on back up keepers, another left back option.

Areas which are not priorities, this is why this squad is so poorly constructed and why it can't compete on all fronts.

If calafori is being signed are kiwor, Zinchenko etc. Being sold? Or usual point which will arise where we won't sign other players because the budgets been used up on players replacing continual areas that have been messed up.
 
If you look at what Cost Arsenal title last season, it was losing 4 games in the 1st 20 games of the season. Man city lost 3 times all season and their last defeat in league was in December. Arsenal poor December was costly.

Arsenal have key players at the Euros, these players are going to need a rest at somepoint next season or will suffer from burn out. The CL is now extended and will mean January will be jam packed, their is no mid season break (so no dubai trips to fix issues).

On top of that Arsenal's 1st six away fixtures are Villa, spurs, man city, Bournemouth, Chelsea & Newcastle. So they can't afford a disjointed start like last season with indifferent football being played and experimenting.

So the so called go slow with in or our transfers isn't helping either. The club needs to showing its got a squad to compete on all fronts, as of right now nothing has been done to show this team is going to win a title, then in Europe you have the likes of Bayern and Real acting like big clubs and making required changes in a pro-active manner.

Fantastic work from Edu once again this guy deserves a pay rise.

Lakonga going out on Loan again as no one wants to buy him, let him run his contract down like all other deadwood players in past

I see Nelson, nketitah, Vieira, Ramsdale, ESR are still here..

Oh wait Arsenal did bid 50K for for a wolves reserve keeper. Fantastic job Arteta and Edu have done when it comes to goal keepers at the club.

So Arsenal need to address the midfield, winger and striker positions.. same as last 5 or 6 transfer windows..

Oh but wait Arteta and Edu are addressing the left back area again.

Tavares, Zinchenko, kiwor, timber and now after an injury prone Italian defender ...

It's ok the delusionist in fan base won't call out it..

But but players are at the Euros..

But but players are at the cops America..

But but the kronkes have invested since they took full ownership...

But but the club has to be careful because of PSR...

Another season of how not to act like a big club on its way, As of right now it will be 5th trophyless season in a row..

But but kronkes and Edu are waiting for Pep to leave and Arsenal will then win stuff

All that's left is josh kronke interview to be shown so usual 🤡 in fan base can go buy the new merchandise and season tickets and watch more failure...

He was sought after by a lot of big clubs, thats the cope mechanism they're fans are using to deal with them not getting him. Not sure why us as Arsenal fans can't be happy with him without the need to put a negative spin on it.

TBH I have not even seen his injury record. If you have it please share it

I am confused. You are complaining ( rightly so) about the lack of action in the window but at the same time playing down the 1st major signing as injury prone. Cheer up lad its only July. We got a full season to be miserable lol.

The deal isn't completed. Bologna have set a price of 50M euros, half of that goes to his former club Basle. So they won't budge on price as they only get half the fee. Whilst he's a good player, he's already had 1 serious knee injury in his young career and loads of injuries after that.

You've got Arteta coming out saying teams have to curb spending etc.. so why is the left back area being addressed again? Tavares, Zinchenko, Tomiyasu, kiwor, timber and now someone else? How many times is the left back and goal keeping position going to be addressed again and again.

The midfield, winger and striker areas have needed fixing for last 2 seasons, yet those areas haven't been filled and again and again squad gets exposed for lack of depth. Once again Arsenal spending re-addressing non priority areas and come end of window usual nonsense about lack of money, PSR will be used.

Calaforis injury record is below

Screenshot_20240712_201034_Chrome.jpg

Saka, Rice and saliba have all played loads in the Euros and will need to be rested at points in season and there is no quality depth to help with that.

Also depend on a German donkey and an injury prone Jesus ain't bridging the gap to man city. Nor will it help in Europe.

5 seasons a manager at a big club should be challenging on all fronts, right now this squad is miles off that.

Arsenal should be making huge statement of intent in transfer window. But as usual the squad will be left with holes that will be exposed again. The expanded CL will expose both the lack of depth and the managers inability to manage a squad in all competitions again.

What has edu actually been doing since last summer?
