I feel partly responsible, feel like there would be wars on AM if the both of us had trusted status simultaneously.

Don't feel guilty, Juan...I have had my run with the title, you deserve yours...

I think that Eddie McGoldrick was a good utility player. When he was at Crystal Palace, he was a Winger, Midfielder, and at times a Sweeper.
At Arsenal, he was reunited with Ian Wright. He scored a wonder goal Vs Standard Liege.
He played quite a few matches in his debut 1993/94 season. Then chances began to be limited with the arrival of Glenn Helder.
I read something in The Gooner fanzine that he did not have big replica shirt sales, was because people did not want to spend £1,00 a letter. (McGOLDRICK 14 would cost a bit, compared to DAVIS 4).

I believe that Unai Emery was not given enough time at Arsenal. He Won Europa Leagues with Sevilla before coming to Arsenal. He took over from Wenger, like Moyes took over from Ferguson. (New manager taking over from a long serving one).
Now manager of Villarreal, he beat us in last seasons Europa League Semi Final. Then beat Man Utd in the Final. A multiple Europa League Winner.

I will add to this line of unpopularity, Emery would have turned it around at Arsenal. Not saying top 4 but better position than teta especially if he had been backed the same way. We were playing the worse football of all time under teta and even he saw some upswing after Christmas.

I believe that Alex Manninger should have been the next first choice goalkeeper. I know that David Seaman was in front of him. Would have tried to involve Alex in more games. When Alex played, he kept 6 clean sheets in a row, and did well in a penalty shoot out away at West Ham United. ⚒️
I think that Alex was the best backup goalkeeper signed by Arsène Wenger. Having signed the likes of Richard Wright, Mart Poom etc. 🥅⚽🧤

I agree, Manninger was a very undderated and good keeper.

Not too sure if this is in the right Thread. Sorry if it is not.
We have Statues outside The Emirates of Tony Adams, Thierry Henry. I believe there should be a Statue of David O' Leary. Highest Arsenal appearances. 700 odd?

I think that The Emirates should have a Sky Walk like New White Hart Lane.
It could be a walk around the entire edge of the roof overlooking the pitch.
It could be called 'Top Gun Roof Walk'. Sponsored by Fly Emirates.
It could be a Guided Tour Walk led by an ex player. Someone who is not afraid of heights, and likes being amongst the clouds. How about Dennis Bergkamp? Sorry, no, maybe not. 🏟️🏃🚶🧍🌤️🐦🕊️

People should talk about goals and assists separately and not add them together. It just becomes misleading and a form of stat padding.

Bamford shouldve been at the euro's and not DCL

I'd gone for Watkins over DCL. I haven't watched anywhere near the amount Everton matches I used to (I have soft spot for them as half my Family are Toffee supporters). I was surprised to learn that they don't rate them to highly.

They tell me unless it on a platter for DCL or a set piece then he's a very limited and frustrating player. Compare that to Watkins who is able to take people on and beat people etc.

DCL the fiirst few games of last season was a tank but he fell off a cliff. Im more in the bamford camp, 17 league goals and he was 8/10 every game last season.

I believe we should make a move for Harry Kane and Kalvin Phillips. Have a good British spine if Ben White signs. With Holding, Tierney, Maitland-Niles, Willock, Smith-Rowe, Saka.
Harry Kane was in our Youth Set up, could cross the divide as Sol Campbell did. He knows who he is. 🟥⬜ Better chance of winning the FA Cup anyway. (How about a Cash + Lacazette deal)?

Nobody laughs on my "jokes" 😫
I would like to see more Arsenal players on the international scene. Four players is abysmal for a supposed big club. Next World Cup I want to see guys like ESR, Willock, White (if we sign him), Lokonga, and any other new signings. I know people complain about injuries but there’s a special feeling knowing that they’ve been selected to play for their countries.
