    Zero goals for Arsenal, zero goals for his country, 4 in like 80 for Sampdoria.... by all means, he knows how to do it.

    Yep that botched Alonso transfer hurts, he'd have made a huge difference.

    Does it hurt as much as Suarez?

    What about Griezmann/Cech/Lloris/Vertonghen/Carrick?

    Those are only off the top of my head.

    Most of his goals came last year with Sampdoria, tbh. I think he can score a couple more.

    He wasn't signed to score goals. We have half a dozen other players who do that comfortably.

    I do get what you're saying but needless to say, I don't think Real's culture or mentality counted for much when they got knocked out of the CL 6 seasons in a row in the round of 16. It was only when they had more of a plan, hired Mourinho, spent wisely, that they started making more headway.

    Club culture is important but I feel absolutely dwarfed in importance by quality of players and more importantly, money. As someone else said, if a Saudi prince bought Tottenham and bankrolled ala Man City/ Chelsea, I'm sure the club mentality would change pretty quickly, along with the trophy cabinet.

    Anyway, I won't write anything more as I feel I am diverting this thread.

    Guess no one expects more. This and winning the Europa League would be good.

    After a disastrous start, under a new manager and having lost their best player Sanchez, I am surprised they are 4th because I expected them to be mid-table by now. But now they look good enough and most likely to finish top 4.

    Emery is underrated due to his spell at PSG and his lack of a distinct playing style. His one big weakness is that he doesn't have the charisma and personality to deal with players that undermine his authority. So he relies on the team hierarchy to support him. Arsenal doesn't seem to have a complicated dressing room so this doesn't seem to be an issue at the moment. He'll do very well considering that arsenal's squad isnt all that great. Not long ago even their current top players (lacazette, auba) weren't rated highly. His strength is his tactical flexibility. He is getting the best out of what he has and adapts to his players.

    Exactly. That's the reason why he struggled at P.S.G. Not many can deal with such big egos.
