    Stupidity personified. He’s not a CAM, and will look like a headless chicken when used as one.

    Considering our desperate need for his attributes in the heart of midfield, it makes zero sense to me.

    First game of the season, away game up north, cold and raining, missing 7 starters. Ended up with a 1-0 win, looked comfortable at the back, no injuries, provided some needed minutes to new signings.

    This is likely to be the worst side we field this season and Newcastle did **** all against it. Honestly i'm very pleased with todays game all things considered. Not to mention we get rid of that "Arsenal haven't kept an away clean sheet yada yada" nonsense early on and can build some form of defensive confidence from this.

    Newcastle however are ****ed.

    As far as the first game of the season goes, it wasn't overly ****ty. Good result in the end, especially with this patchwork team. It was a mistake to loan out Chambers last season, Fulham's ****ty defence didn't do him any good. If he spent that time here, he would have saved us from that abomination Mustafi.

    Mkhitaryan should play no further part in our premier league campaign, he is well and truly done for. Just like Sanchez at utd, no point playing him in hope because of his past glories at Dortmund. Pepe should start the next game ahead of him and Saka should be on the bench instead.

    Yeah it’ll be tough for him. When everyone’s fit I don’t see him playing much, yet he’ll need games to adapt.

    I'll take a scrappy win any day. Glad I was wrong in my prediction. Looks comfortable, but not more than that. Guess the sparkling will come as the players get fitter. Great assist from AMN!

    We started 3 academy products in the opener. Its just insane.

    Look. 35 M for Iwobi. This is huge value there! But even more if these players make it with us!

    So glad with that!

    Not writing him off. Just saying I've not seen anything that so many are raving about from the preseason.

    Not many good performances, but we still got the win. Was nice to see the defence being pretty comfortable too..

    Imagine saying Ceballos won't start we bought him to replace ramsey who was key player for us last season of course he'll start!

    Our defence was solid even if I had kittens every time our box was attacked. In front of them, Emery still has to find the right combination of players. It seems a lot weren't played in their favoured position or asked to do a job. Credit to the players who got the job done but Emery has to give them more licence to play to their strengths as the season goes on. I think this will come as players get fitter but it was nice to see us digging in and managing a game especially near the corner at the end :)

    Good result players are obviously rusty. Dani and Pepe need to get used to the league and speed of it. Our starting lineup was nowhere near our 1st 11. We won and along with a clean sheet is a great start. Roll on Burnley!! Can the Debbies please go and moan elsewhere.

    I’m proud of Willock and AMN. They did well enough in a road season-opening win. Not spectacular overall, but AMN’s assist and Auba’s finish were beautiful. Chambers deserves lots of praise as well. Huge performance for him.

    Imagine this attack when our first choice fullbacks are ready:drool:

    Loved seeing us keeping the ball in the corners at the end by the way. Great stuff.
