    You know auba has only scored 4 more goals in the epl than laca. If you think laca numbers are grim reading then good job you havent seen rashford/lukaku/vardy/firmino/giroud/martial's numbers this year. I suppose its lucky liverpool have salah or else mane and firmino's numbers would be grim reading.

    I agree his performances havent been good but lets be realistic, you take a 34 yr old rb and shove him in a awful defence in a league where every winger is rapid is classic arsenal.

    I think overall this season to be where we are is actually pretty good. We are punching above our weight currently and if we manage to get top 4 the emery has done a amazing job. To finish top 6 and be close to top 4 then he has done really well.

    I would split the players into several categories:

    Awful: Lich, Mustafi
    Pretty awful: AMN, Mhki, Monreal, Özil
    Doesn't impress me much: Iwobi, Elneny, Cech, Xhaka
    Ok ish: Ramsey, Kos,
    Needs to do better but acceptable: Laca, Auba, Kolasinac
    Doing well for a new boy: Torreira, Guendouzi, Leno
    Good job: Sokratis

    Summary: We have a lot to do in the summer.

    Dafuq you on about. Laca's numbers are grim. Firmino's numbers are indeed sh!t, too.

    Auba has been playing wide to fit Laca in. Yet he's scored 25 goals in the league since his arrival.

    I'd argue our defenders are performing at about their level, which is to say, dreadful (bar Sokratis and Bellerin/Holding pre injury).

    It's the players who are performing far below what is expected of them that I'm more worried about.

    Got to agree with @MutableEarth

    Mustafi, Lichtsteiner, Mikitaryan and Maitland-Niles.

    Add all their salaries up and it still wouldn't come to 350k.

    We can both agree laca and auba can do more, laca should have had another the weekend and auba missed 2 very good chances. Your having a dig at laca but aside from aguero and kane there is no striker in the league putting up good numbers from a 9 position. Your point about auba on the wing is flawed as salah does the same for liverpool and they are in the mix. Our front 2 are whats keeping us from the bottom 4 and not the top 4

    Crazy thing is pal is knowing arsenal they probably exceed 350k. Its not like us to put dribble on well paid long contracts.

    I thought Mustafi makes 90k and Mkhitarayan 200k? Lichsteiner is old but he was also a free transfer. Those three alone probably make 350k combined.

    Do you have to work in a dig at Özil in every comment of yours though?

    There’s other aspects than players positions, which have direct correlation to statistics.

    Kolasinac - Defensively he’s been poor.

    Lichtsteiner - Past it, but that’s not his fault.

    Aubamayeng - Gets his goals but lacking in individual magic.

    Iwobi - Despite the faith showed by Emery, can’t produce in the final moment.

    Kos - Past it, but again, not his fault.

    Mikhitariyan - Like Iwobi, Emery has showed faith but he rarely delivers.

    Not keen on the idea of judging the players by who’s been the worst, but I do think Iwobi, Kos and Lich are stand outs.
