    Interesting transfer. Actually looking forward to it as a neutral.

    How do you rate your chances of getting a result at City (draw or win)? Bearing in mind that they're under a lot of pressure at the moment and have had some really dodgy results in recent weeks.

    Given Arsenal's away form and City's home form I would give Arsenal a negative chance.

    Not impossible. We've put in some solid defensive displays in the big games, so we are capable of defending well, but they have been in home matches. Our away form would suggest this is an easy win for City. I think the loss against Newcastle will work against us, as I'm expecting City to respond with a better performance. I just can't see them not opening us up repetitively. Defensively, City seem to be pretty suspect and I think we'll have chances to score on the counter.

    I think it'll be 4-2 City or something like that. Best case scenario 2-2.

    Very respectable overview imo
    We have seen that city lack mental strength at times so i do see you having a chance

    Has anyone noticed how mustafi has faked an injury in every big game this season or any game we are trailing.

    He’s a pathetic excuse for a football player along with lichten whatever his name is doesn’t deserve a finishing of the sentence

    Good to get that game out the way. Our run until the end of the season is pretty favourable now. We only play two of the top 6. One being Man United at home and other Spurs away, which are both winnable fixtures. Chelsea and Man United both have four more of the top 6 to play, City and Liverpool being amongst those.

    We need to get our act together though. We are far too inconsistent to even put a run together against bottom half sides right now. Need to decide on a formation and a starting eleven and stick with it.

    According to Ornstein, it could be closer to 100million, including salaries. That could be higher depending on whether we qualify for the Champions League or lower if it's Europa. Articles from the Daily Mail and John Cross should never be trusted

    100m including salaries is basically like saying ~80M.

    You can probably grab 3-4 Torriera/Guendouzi style signings for that and just hope they hit as well as the first two did. If one or two don't, you're ****.

    United and Chelsea both gearing up to spend a load this summer while City/Liverpool/Spurs are already far ahead of you.

    There's very few such bargains on this market anymore, they'll be very lucky to find another.

    That was my point. They can really only afford to shop in that tier and pray that it works out.

    The best part is that by the time they finally fix the defense, Aubameyang and Lacazette will be on the decline :lol:

    Without Mislintat, we don't have a chance of making any Torreira/Guendouzi type signings, unfortunately. We need a right back, winger, and centre back at least, in addition to Denis Suarez taking away from £15m of the budget. Then we need right back cover for Bellerin- hopefully costing no more than £10m. Leaves us with let's say £60m ish to spend on a winger and centre back. Not impossible to significantly improve our squad with that money. We don't even have to make particularly good transfers to improve on the likes of Iwobi and Mustafi

    Things would definitely be a lot easier if Kroenke was willing to invest a penny of his own money

    Auba maybe, but I can easily see Laca starting for us until he's 33/34 (providing he stays). Absolute baller. Saying that, it's no guarantee we manage to sort out our defence in 7 years

    I genuinely feel bad for Unai Emery.

    Poor guy has been tasked with taking you back to the top 4 while the clubs already ahead of you outspend you 2:1.

    Like, all indications are that United want Koulibaly in the summer. Him alone would basically cost the same as your entire summer budget and somehow Emery is supposed to keep you competitive.

    We can just about remain competitive, as we have a good enough squad to at least challenge the top 4. We won't come close to winning the league for a long time, though.

    Can you though? You're 10 pts or more off each of the top 3 by February. I'd argue that the only reason you're competitive is that United had their worst start in Premier League history. If we'd been anywhere near normal this year under Mourinho, you'd be ~10 pts off us too.

    I'm just imagining February 2020, where you're 10 pts off top 4 and the fans are saying its time for Emery to go, even though it will not be his fault in any way that you're there.

    Liverpool and City are miles ahead of us
    Man Utd will spend big and are better than us without Mourinho
    Spurs are better than us, way more balance and dont need to spend to remain in the top 4
    Chelsea will surely spend big and are in a similar situation to us squad wise, they can sell hazard and reinvest and have an owner who invests

    We need to get really lucky with transfers which is very unlikely with the recent departure or we need a manager that can get the very best out of our current players but under Emery u cant see that

    I'm sorry, who exactly (other than Ozil obviously) is Emery failing to get the best out of?
