Expectations for the season?

  1. Title Contenders

  2. Top 4

  3. Top 4 + deep cup runs

  4. Top 6

  5. Top 6 + deep cup runs

  6. Another inconsistent season

  7. No expectations, just see how Arteta gets on

    This I agree with, I can't vote until closer to the start of the season.

    The only right thing to do is to lock this thread, and ban @Oxeki and @Riou

    @Oxeki proves you should need to post here at least 2 years before you have new thread privileges. Smh this is why we need the Lobby.

    Tf is happening to this forum?

    Mods pull your fingers out and help @American_Gooner out, guy's back is finished carrying the workload.

    Get a couple of more mods in now. I suggest @krengon, @Jasard and @OnlyOne.

    Is our squad good enough for top 4? It might be. A direct squad comparison with our top 4 rivals come the end of the transfer window will help to answer that question.

    I knew the usual suspects will be out in full force to spread their negativity on this thread.

    Coaching helps.

    Comparing squads doesn't paint a full picture of good a squad is. A good coach can employ tactics to cover the weakness of his team. Emery had us at 15th despite 15th not being our level

    Gotta let the bum squad have a chance, would be too easy otherwise, so I picked two superb and impartial posters and onlyone.

    That is true. But coaching is less quantifiable, hence why I like to look at a squad comparison.
    If it’s the case that our rivals for top 4 have much better squads and we make top 4 then it could then be argued that we’d be overachieving thanks to superior coaching.

    Yeah I would delete every positive post about Lacazette or Torreira so I guess it's for the best.

    Not voting until we see more transfers. Based on Mari, Cedric, Luiz, Willian though, obviously between 6th - 8th.

    We should have one mod spot rotated daily. Let us all take turns, the banter would be out of this world.

    Too early to tell but expect Spu ds and Leicester to weaken and we should be able to overtake Wolves.

    Can't see us making a title challenge so 3rd would be our absolute tops but we'd do well to win the 4th place trophy.

    I just want a clear identity and a top 6 finish. Last season's signings need to become established players within the team. That means Tierney needs to maintain his level, Luiz needs to cut the crap and lead and Pepe needs to be making telling contributions consistently. Martinelli and Ceballos (if we keep him) need to be amongst the best young players in the league and impact on our season.

    If that happens, I think next season will be a fun journey. We aren't one of the 4 best squads in the league, so I don't expect top 4 next season.

    With bellerin not getting Hardly gwtting any game time: title contndera and EL or/ and FA trophy.

    With Bellerin playing more than 15 matches in all competitions - outside the top 4.

    Top 3.
    Cup win, preferably the Europa League.
    Xhaka, Mustafi, and Luiz all gone before the start of the 2022 season.

    Really depends whom else we sign. As things stand, it's status quo (probably finish a bit higher, but hard to bank on a victorious FA cup run every year), with any presumed improvement coming from young players being another year older / Auba not falling off yet.
