I hope he gives Lucas Perez a decent chance cos I really think there's a great player in there somewhere. Auba, Laca and Luca could make for a fearsome threesome.



I share the confidence in Lucas...


I like his hustle too.



he was also one to strike the ball "properly" on goal. There are many yeye players masquerading as strikers that just close their eyes and bulala the ball.

It is a new era.

Arsenal is actually signing a 34 year old that is not a Goalkeepr lol.

Well he looks like he is in good condition.

Not that I support the deal, but when you have a player as young as Bellerin, your options for his competition are a bit "slim." In building a team, you cant have 22 Messis. Doesnt work that way.

That said, did you guys sell Debuchy? if so, it now seems like a bad decision.

I don't understand why he was not integrated. Same with Campbell (well he was vanquished for Ox)



those were two bad decisions by us. We let 2 players with skill, and who were hardworking go

So a "very very good and reliable" player is not "one of the best..."? So what is your definition of "one of the best..."? Is there a number to the amount of 'Very" to be added to qualify for one of the best? :D

Like '...very very very good and very reliable? :sneaky:


LOL. I specifically refused to use the word, great! He was never great. he was very good and reliable. Someone you know will do the job very well and you can always depend on him for that. But he never had that x-factor.

During his best days, you had guys like Maicon, Dani Alves, Philip Lahm, Sagna, Juanfran, Zambrotta***, he wasnt close to been at those guy's level. Not even close.

Lucas Perezdolski, been there, done it, got the tshirt. LP or cassette deck, whatever sobriquet flavours the month, can jog on. It requires more than a Wengerian dropout to bridge the gap and turn these Maybellines into title contenders. Salah season included. Sell the b*stard and put the whole kitty on red seven, Tony Martial.

dd,

I preferred him to half the guys you listed. Sure, those guys might have been capable of giving you 10/10 but outside the first 3, the others were also well able of giving 6s. Lichtsteiner almost always gave you 8/10 and occasionally threw in a 10.

I always thought he never got the accolade he should have but maybe that's a heavy bias on my part for someone who doesn't do too much flashy stuff but just goes about his job.

Bellerin will learn a lot from him.

I forgot Srna sef.

I’ll say he was a regular 6, with a fee 8 when he was exceptional by his own standards. I guess my disagreement wth you is the phrase “one of the best in the world.”

You are wrong on this one.

Lichsteiner is firstly a proper defender. He is a consistent, hard as nails defender. Emery does not do one on one defence he does zonal and team defence. You will not see Arsenal defenders one on one against attackers, there will always be cover because we will be compact as a unit. In a compact unit with constant cover Lichsteiner thrives.

This is a player we have tried to sign for a few season now, but we could not agree a fee with Juve. For me, it is a clear indication that they want to sort out the defence and the truth be told , we conceded the most goals in open play from our right side that had Ozil nd Bellerin.

I said in my analysis Unai Emery will not have his 2 FBs in advanced positions when Arsenal play out from deep. He does not play that way. He is a very pragmatic Coach and I see us being sound defensively and we will play from the base of a sound defence.

Oh! Niles is not back up FB anymore. Niles is a starter next season in CM.

This leads me to Ozil. Wenger played with too many attackers (especially with Ramsey being more attacking in the unit) Emery will do the opposite. By this I mean, Emery will not start any game (At least not in the beginning of the term or away from home) with Laca, Auba, Ozil, Mkhi and Ramsey. You can also swap any two in my chosen attackers above for Welbeck and Iwobi.

Emery will start with 4 attackers, if Ramsey starts, then it means only 3 from the above 6 players starts. If Lucas Perez has a future at Arsenal that makes it 7 players. So who drops out?

If Ozil plays, he will not play Wide Right or Left. He plays number 10 who is expected to drop deep and cover ground in defense. If Ozil is number 10, who plays with him. Or does Unai Emery see Ozil like George Graham saw Charlie Nicholas? We will soon find out.

Perez is best on the left side cutting into his right foot, so he prefers the Wide Left position. Yes, he can play the Wide Right but he is best wide left or as a half striker. The problem Perez had was he just could not get in ahead of Sanchez on the left side. When played right he was not very good. Also, defensively he is weak in the Wide positions, so if you chose to play him where he will not be much of a liability to the team defensively, he plays through the middle as a central attackers or striker, where he puts in a shift closing down defenders and harassing them. But we have Laca and Auba, so who goes to make way for Perez?

Something must give for Perez, or for how Emery wants to play. If Arsenal keep all these players, which is most unlikely with Welbeck and Ramsey looking like being contract rebels, then there will be big players seating on the bench next season. I will not be surprised if at least two big players in the squad are sold this summer.

Arsenal need a proper Defensive midfielder. My preference is to keep both Ramsey and Wilshere and then sign a ball winning midfielder. Don't need a big name, big money transfer Scouts need to earn their money. .

Ive followed Lichstiner for a while, and I will be very happy to see him at Arsenal. Old school, hard-nosed full back. Exactly what the doctor ordered to fire up bellerin and teach him one or two things.

I'm liking the players we are going after so far.

you are NOT serious.

Wilshere, Ramsey and Welbeck can go. We thank them or their services.
Ramsey is a decent player, but he absolutely lacks discipline. He can be fantastic on his day, and can be an absolute dud. Unless Coach Umaru can fix his head, he needs to move on.

Wasn’t Kolasinac old school, hard as nails? So hard Nacho Monreal sat him on the bench like he’d been naughty at playtime. That said, Lichen Scleoris on one side, Asamoah bombing up and own the other, Juve were a force back then. Decent trickle of pace 10 years ago. If memory serves correct, had picked Lychee as the man to replaced Eboue if he left.
