    Yeah, I'm very interested to see what Arteta does with him. I get the feeling if we don't get Aouar and keep him to play, he might be this season's Saka.

    Yeah and meanwhile if we manage to trim the squad by the end of the window, we should be in good shape. From there we just have to upgrade certain positions and get some decent squad players. Some of which might just turn up from the academy.

    Because my opinion is different to yours? The facts are nobody will know how bale will do until he starts playing again. Özil still has the quality but it wouldn't work now.

    Get a grip.

    I think back to back defeats against Pool will spring us into action.

    Literally nothing has happened. It’s been the same story with Partey and Aouar for over a month now.

    You sharing your little advent-calendar of bum ITKs each day doesn’t change that.

    Will you care if we get the best possible deals? We've already done business. You're acting as if we have done none.

    Just go with the flow man.

    I sure hope not. That’s got mid table written all over it.

    I guess we are going to wait for our assholes to be torn by liverpool before we actually improve the squad then..

    had a feeling all along that we were having a good window with all good rumors from good sources but in reality without A&P, it is a **** window. Time is running out. Getting worried.

    Partey I understand but Aouar at 60 mill is a joke.
    Will be happy with only Partey.
    Else we can forget the top 4.

    Still 10 days to go. A very long time in the transfer market. People will flap more and more the less time we have, but the fact remains that we can sign Partey in the last 3/4 days if need be as he has a release clause. That has always been the case.

    If nothing has changed by the cup game against Liverpool next Thursday then we can panic :lol:

    Until that point, calma.

    Aouar for 50-60M is not joke he is one of most improved talented midfielder in his age

    is that the same Liverpool we beat twice only recently, and without Gabriel?

    Maybe I'm more optimistic than most but I think the current squad is good enough for a tilt at top 4.

    Obviously we know we have deficiencies in midfield, but that West Ham performance will be one of our 5 worst performances this season. I wouldn't read too much into it. Everyone underperformed.

    Still, I expect us to sign one more midfielder this summer. My personal preference would be Partey but I think it might end up being Aouar, or a player that hasn't even been linked to us yet.

    I think its enough to push but ultimately will finish 5th at best. One of the midfielders linked cements us into 4th. Two of them just makes it even more comfortable.

    Logic would dictate one will sign. We will still shift players, loan deals will also bring cash in. Even if we just signed one our net spend would be sitting at around £30-50M which is realistic for this window.

    Fair enough but that's wildly optimistic. Leicester have a better midfield than us. Utd and Sp*rs have back-up midfielders that barely play that cost 50m. We have one serviceable back-up midfielder in Elneny. You might be able to win one-off cup games like this but you'll get find out over a league season with a midfield as threadbare as this one. We'd be lucky to get top 6.

    Arteta is a top manager but we're wasting him if we don't spend some serious money on this squad.

    Will burn out like Potch at Sp**s.

    Its his first summer, none of us should be expecting a 200M spend. £60-100M would suffice.

    I'm not worried at all that Edu and Arteta know perfectly well which players they need, how to not get fed **** players instead etc, but I AM worried that Kroenke just does not give them leeway, if they don't perform miracles in the market by selling every unwanted player for great fees.

    You can play a risky game dragging it on in order to increase chances of getting better deals, but you cannot leave Arteta hanging, if it does not work out.

    If that window does not end with proper incomings, then it's on Kroenke.
    Biding my time for now as to how I'm going to judge him, but it's looking worse with every day without any progress.
