    Football wise we've got a strange squad, but we're really missing something in the personalities too. We don't have a proper player who sticks out to me as a winner and leader, who our players can turn to to get us ticking in tough spots. Preferably you'd want that in a midfielder.

    I'd love the footballing equivalent of Jimmy Butler.

    Two out of the 3 of those in the picture I'd agree with that they have a massive attitude problem. Not guendouzi though he tries even if his experience and age count against him. There are plenty of others to add to the list as well.

    Would we care if we got 4th and looked really solid? I wouldn't. I think we're at the stage where we just need to see him have an immediate positive effect on results, even if it means him using a temporary uninspiring set up for the time being. He'll have to do that to an extent anyway, because he wont have the players he needs to implement exactly what he wants.

    don't talk about effort and then toss Xhaka. you can not rate a player and want him out, but don't question his effort

    I'd add lacazette to that list and kolasinac (whatever his drawbacks As a left back) I'd keep torreira as well if he wanted to stay but I don't think he does and think pepe will come good too. The rest I think we should be open to offers at this stage and that includes aubameyang. We need to think the future and cash in.

    Arsenal sign all these players, they make us drop down the table, players want out as they feel too “good” for the club...interesting...

    yep Holding as well and I still think Chambers is useful. Better option at right back than AMN imo

    We should start by ****ing off all the social media keyboard and rainbow warriors. Absolute wankers. football first, keep your other interests and crusades to yourself, because when the **** hits the fan, the paying public don't give a **** about how you feel about issues on the other side of the world. We go football to escape this bollocks.

    Yeah he really made an effort ducking out the way out of the ball and making his cowardly sliding tackles when staying on his feet and /or positioning himself properly would have been better. Nothing footballer.

    Arteta could make a world of difference given a season or two. There might be a bit of PR work involved but I think Josh and Stan Kroenke have pulled their weight since Wenger has gone, the issues are closer to the surface now. Shift the problematic players out, get players in that complement our working pieces and fit Arteta's system. We've got good youth in Pepe, Saliba, Martinelli, Guendouzi, Smith Rowe, Nketiah, Willock, Saka, Nelson, etc., the future is alright if we develop them effectively.

    For now, all I ask is that we see signs of improvement and identity on the pitch.

    As a back up maybe, need the HG numbers too. AMN is garbage!

    Seriously, don't hate Emery for all of this, HE CARED, but this crop of players deserves being put to blame. Shocking attitude ever since **** hit the fan.

    Sell the lot and only keep the ones that are commited along side the kids that I dont see as part of this problem.

    Interesting to see that people see big holes in our squad physically and mentality yet most fail to admit that last two transfers windows were we signed around 10 players was not that good.

    Bet Pep is telling him straight about squad cost.

    "The odds of winning the league with City, as my successor, is a lot higher than with a team spending 5th like Arsenal, Mikel. Make sure you ask a lot of questions about future transfer commitments. And walk away if it sounds like garbage. Otherwise you're setting yourself up for failure. That current squad has more holes than pornhub."

    Emery was never going to be the right fit for us, but the players are definitely a large part of the issue. The reports of downing tools are shocking. We need to step it up and fight for points, the season is far from over. Instead, it seems a good few are rolling over like spineless losers. Pricks.

    We've been too patient with some of this lot.
