  1. Post match vs West Bromwich Albion

    WBA didn’t have to do all that much to get a result out or us today. De Gea doesn’t stamp his authority on the game (again) and than the defence is all over the place. Bruno scores a great goal, that should win it for us , but we are already on an uphill struggle. We have an amazing squad, but...
  2. Post match vs Liverpool

    We are getting better and better to watch. This isn’t another false dawn though we do look a little shaky at the back sometimes, our attacks down the left look great.
  3. Would you be happy with finishing 3rd this season but with more points than last season?

    I think Liverpool might fade away somewhat. I would be disappointed if we don’t finish above them but not unhappy with progress. It’s good to be in the mix and to feel like we have a chance. Not felt that for a long time. Progress can definitely be seen and it’s not just in the points or the...
  4. Post match vs Liverpool

    We have come so far since the equivalent fixture last year. Delighted with the performance, resolute and marginally on top at Anfield. What’s better is that it doesn’t feel like a ‘one off’ like with Mou or LVG. Brilliant.
  5. DEFENSIVELY are we weak?

    I would second this. Having a goalkeeper that comes and claims a cross can not only give the defence confidence, but can also relieve the pressure in the dying minutes of a game much more effectively than heading it back out of our box.
  6. Sancho, Grealish, Rice or Calvert-Lewin?

    Think 80m would be steep for any of them , but I think a Rice - McTominey partnership would work well.
  7. How far off is this squad from a title challenge?

    I think we have a good enough squad to challenge, with perhaps the addition of a quality right forward. I think the manager Needs support from experienced proven winner coaches. We have too little (Success) experience In our coaching staff ( despite achievements as players).
  8. Could they void the PL due to the Coronavirus? | No | Resuming June 17th

    Would they be able to go with finishing the leagues now. Keep the positions and have 2 teams promoted (no playoffs) and no relegation. Cancel the league cup and play the extra league games in those slots. Next season 5 teams get relegated from the EPL.
  9. Could they void the PL due to the Coronavirus? | No | Resuming June 17th

    Not read all the posts. But are Arsenal going to be able to play again in the next two weeks? Are they in quarantine? If yes, can the league really carry on with one team out of action?
  10. Which striker should we sign this summer?

    Richarlison Would be a good addition. Probably too expensive.
  11. What would make you change your opinion on Ole

    For me, in answer to the original poster, Getting some momentum going. Win a few on the bounce, orchestrate his troops from the technical area. Take charge of his team. It just seems so limp at the moment unless we are playing one of the top teams.
  12. Would you sack or keep Ole? (Poll reopened)

    Can’t speak for anyone but myself. I just want to see improvements in the quality of the football and entertainment (on the pitch). I want to see that We are improving and building. What I see is us going backwards. I get the idea of giving time to a manager to implement their strategies...
  13. Would you sack or keep Ole? (Poll reopened)

    Is the plan to finish outside the Europa places so we don’t need as big squad and can get rid of more deadwood?
