    Get Pukki for a season or 2, he would be cheap :wink:

    I think DCL, when fit, would be a fantastic choice.

    Especially if Arteta wants to cross spam.

    Partey told Sky Sports News: "I give myself four [out of 10], because there are moments I can really hurt the other team but there are also moments where I allow myself to lose focus and that's when everything goes down.

    "This is when you realise that you have to get better."

    At least he sees the problems, let's hope he finds some consistency

    He's normally bad for the first 4-5 games after injury, picks up form then gets injured after 2 more games.

    Xhaka back a month early :D
    Tierney back
    Auba dropped

    Excellent line-up. Smith Rowe must not quite be fit, but could probably do with a rest anyway.

    Would you guys accept it if Arteta made Xhaka the captain again? I'm probably wrong but Auba just doesn't scream captain.

    Tierney is the one if he reclaims his spot.

    Agree with Auba not being the one.

    Most people accept Xhaka is the on-field captain. Auba only has it because he was our best player. I don't think the armband matters that much though, he'll keep it until his contract runs out then it'll be given to Tierney or one of the more vocal players like Gabriel or Ramsdale

    Definitely don't deserve to be winning but i'll take it. Second half needs to be much better. None of this protecting the one goal lead nonsense even if it'll probably work against Everton

    Need to see more from the front 4. And Partey needs to focus..

    Terrible decision to bring on Nketiah at left wing over Pepe

    Don't understand why Pepe doesn't come on.

    And, we deserve this tbh.

    White and Odegaard decent, Tomi too. Rest rubbish.

    "Who won the Ole, Arteta, Lampard debate?"

    Nobody. We all lost :joy:

    Absolute panic stations in the second half I don't know what we were doing. We have so little quality in the final third

    If only you had a goal scorer like Origi.

    Not even joking.

    That Auba miss at the end was a bloody disgrace, it wasn't even close either, the guy is done it's a shame we have to pay him £250k-£350k a week for another 18 months, he certainly isn't reaching the higher end of those wage bonuses :D

    Would be far better than any of our strikers

    I don't know who we even play up front at this point? Surely it's gotta be Martinelli. Laca was so poor that game too.

    But he would play 90 min games and he can't stat pad goals/min ratio like that

    If you get Europa qualification then he’ll be fine against Barça 🤷🏼‍♂️

    I guess you all can rule out top four this season, at least you can look forward to your next win on Dec. 26th if you can beat Norwich.

    Nah, they'll get wins.

    Southampton (H)--->W
    West Ham (H)--->?
    Leeds (A)--->W
    Norwich (A)--->W
    Wolves (H)--->?
    City (H)--->L
    Spurs (A)--->L

    Give one W and one L in the ?'s I guess so IMO they'll get 12 points from the next 7

    Those games are not as easy as they looked weeks ago. Leeds are getting healthy, Norwich look much better and Wolves are good at times.

    I expect Arsenal to win a few but those are not easy.

    Focus on your team and their tittle challenge. If you’re still a chance being one point behind I’m sure we’re still a chance for fourth being a game and a half behind.

    Should have beat United. Not fussed with Everton they suffocated us deserved the loss. Anything can happen with 23 games left. Stupid comment to rule it out.

    As for team just let the future get on with it now. Would love to see
    Martinelli
    ESR Odegaard Saka

    All press all can score goals. Focus on that and move on from the old
