    It's astonishing that Arteta believes we have any chance of attaining top 4 through the league.

    Does the club's entire heirarchy run on a delusion laden beverage? :lol:

    So it seems like all we can do is loan deals and nobody will be coming in permanently. Then we have loads of work to do in a euros summer.

    A smart club would identify who they need in the summer and be able to pull off those deals quickly. That's not us unfortunately.

    Not really when you think about it. If Arsenal beats Chelsea, they'll be 7 points behind with 14 games to play. That's certainly not insurmountable. United and Sp**s have been just about as crappy as Arsenal. It's unlikely, but if Arteta can really get Arsenal on a roll they have a chance. But they need to not only win this game, but stop giving away points.

    if you give up on 10 points difference, 15 games to play then you shouldn't be in it in the first place.
    true competitors would never

    January is a dead market. Thing with Kurzawa though, we’ll get him for free in the summer.

    Isn't there an interesting fullback (maybe for both sides) in the Championsship?

    I mean it makes no sense to make an average signing just to have someone for the next months. Not expecting much in the league anyway.

    "Sadly" we have some offensive talents in our academy, but nothing special defensively. Watched Osei-Tutu often for Bochum, but not even close to consider him for Arsenal.

    I’ve gone on enough about Jayden Bogle as a potential RB. In terms of LB’s from the Championship I’d probably only consider @MutableEarth ’s boy Rico Henry.

    Always seemed to be made out of glass but this year he’s been an ever present for Brentford although he’s not the best attacking full back, his crossing is pretty average.

    Nathan Ferguson is a quality talent who can play in all three defensive positions but he’s naturally a CB imo who won’t offer much going forwards.

    Therein lies our problem. This is actually frighteningly similar to last season's top 4 battle where every participant (bar City & Liverpool) conspired to throw it away & the last 2 entrants ended up doing so by virtue of being less crap than the other 2 :lol:

    It could end up being Bukayo Saka strangely enough - if he changes his mind that is.

    Seconded on Jayden Bogle. A great pickup for any team bold enough to slap 10m on the table for him.

    You think his long term future lies there? I must admit I’ve been watching him closely since he’s moved there.

    A certain young Liverpool winger who’s found success at right back recently comes to mind :lol:

    I've long thought Saka could be a standout world class full back, and circumstance has shown us his promise there. He has much more of a case in favor of the position change than Ainsley does IMO (Ainsley needs the action in midfield, too idle to be a wide man) I also think he is humble and smart enough to see how awesome he could be as a full back.

    Issue for me is, he still has massive potential as an attacker, so there will always be that question if he goes further back. But I wonder how much Trent regrets moving to RB, knowing hes been a midfielder for so long in his youth career.

    I’ve gone to League 1 matches and booed Fleck in his Coventry days for running round putting in snidey sh*thouse challenges.

    If you’d have asked me then if years later I’d see him running out at the Emirates for us I’d have laughed at you.

    Same goes for Baldock.

    Last season was truly amazing. I spoke about it often in the final weeks. It truly was as though every team was trying to avoid the top 4 and Arsenal just managed to do a little bit better job of it. :lol:

    We can only hope that it gets really close in the end and the other clubs do a better job this time. :D
