will arsene spend [the so called transfer pot]

Recommended Posts

The squad is fine, just not full of well known tried and tested players. People therefore, wrongly in my opinion, just assume it's a weak squad. As you say, a better manager, one with whom I have faith in, and who has assembled the squad. How many injuries are you supposed to cater for? Arsenal have 6 first teamers injured right now, so if you looked at the bench on Tuesday, you may have noticed a couple of youngsters. They all start somewhere. I'm not claiming that Arsenal have the all conquering squad that is destined to clear up all the trophies this year, but they are stronger than a lot of people give them credit for.

Depth? Bearing on mind 11 players start.
Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Koscielny, Sagna can also play in the middle as he has recently been proving.
Gibbs, Jenkinson, Monreal, Sagna. Not a bad set of fullbacks.
The Ox, Rosicky, Cazorla, Wilshere, Ramsey, Ozil, Flamini in the midfield. Pretty good.
Giroud, Podolski, Walcott up front.
There are others, just not as well known, but good. So, Ozil out, Cazorla in. Giroud out, Podolski in. Or Sanogo. Need I go on?

So that's the Premiership sorted and the Champions League.

Stop smoking that stuff,Mangle.

have to agre with mangle on his post ,but as i have previously posted we did need another striker and may have missed a chance this window  another holding / defensive midfielder  and cover at centre back   ,after the loss to villa we have settled into a bit of form  and i am pleased, wilshire is still not up to speed  but ramsey is looking good ozil is class and will give the tream a new centre for the attacks also arteta to come back diaby [if he can keep fit] the ox still is not the finished product  so plenty to come  but we did need cover for giroud , he was slated last season by fans and pundits but imo he was a real bargain and has settled well at the emirates , the plus with ozils signing is other players have sat up and are thinking perhaps we should consider moving to the emirates still early days  but hopefully we can sustain a better run this season in the league  and maybe push for a win in one of the domestic cups

I was only answering your question about squad depth! Nice to see that Arsenals weaker squad beat Spurs better squad a couple of weeks back.


Yes,you beat Spurs in your Cup Final.

Meanwhile the dust continue to settle in your trophy cabinet.

 

well makes a change as for many years  it has been your cup final   yes the dust settles in our trophy cabinet  but at least we have managed to put the prem league in it  ...  when was spurs last league title?  60-61  billy nichs great team   the gunners have struggled to with compete with the likes of utd city chelskie lately  but the stadium has been the rope around the clubs neck  but nearing being paid for ,so soon the spurs will have the same problem if they can find a new site  to build on  and we will then see if you can stay in touch with the top teams in the epl over to you sss

No, of course not. Spurs appear to have bought well. Not much info on their players, not seen much, but I think Paulinho (if that's how you spell it), Soldado and Eriksen look good solid players. But long way to go to see how they settle in. But still, strength in depth, how "deep" is their squad? You appear to be concerned that Arsenal are sparcely covered in some areas, which I have tried to counter argue. Where is Spurs strength in their superior squad if they get 5 or 6 first team squad players out?

So, does that mean Villa has a better squad than you??

 

we caught a cold on the first day and paid for some woeful defending and missing chances but villa on their day with benteke and wieman can can beat any side in the prem league ,early days in the league but hopefully lots more twists and turns  before the eventual winners pick up the trophy , roy as you know the prem title is a marathon not a sprint , as spuds fans have never been part of

arsene spent well with ozil  a really buzz around the fans  its a good feeling when your club is being mentioned for the football by pundits in the media  rather than being panned for the lack of investment , but the main reason for our start to the season is aarron ramsey after all the downs he has suffered in his career he has been  outstanding  and he has outshone jack ,which is good as to much expectation has been placed on his shoulders as Englands and Arsenals next great hope , so a good start to the season but it still has a very long way to go no medals given out in september but hopefully the gunners could be in the mix at the end of season and maybe bring in a  striker in january

Arsenal deserved the points at Swansea this evening. Good result considering we have struggled against them in the last couple of seasons. The result extends Arsenal's club record of consecutive away wins to 12. Nice.

Ramsey, struggle to keep his place. You were worried about Arsenals strength in depth recently, now you think one of the best midfielders in the country right now will struggle to hold on to his place when our injured midfielders recover from injuries????
Ten straight wins since the loss to Aston Villa. Nice going Gunners.

very good win tonight ozil in the 1st half was pulling the strings  ,he is looking good but we have not seen the best of him yet  arsene spent well on this signing  good start to the season for us gooners but a long season ahead in all comps  ,the only problem we might have is cover for giroud but maybe we can put that right in january.

It's a bold statement, that, Rob. But of course, the odds are stacked in your favour. Only 1 team can win each competition, and for the first time in a few years, there are realistically several teams capable. So a fairly "safe bet" that Arsenal will not win blah blah blah.  Just as easy for me to say "Spurs won't win", neither will "ManU" etc etc. Much more decent of you would be the point out who will. Stick your neck on the line. I honestly don't know. I would have put my selection down on the other thread by now, but I do not really have an idea. I believe that ManU, ManC, Spurs, Everton, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool all have claims that they can push for the title this year (PL). At this early stage, Arsenal have really only beaten teams that they should have, also losing to Villa, and have only played Spurs out of my selected possible winners. ManU by contrast have already played 3 of those teams. So the 8 point gap, or whatever it is, can quickly disappear when the fixtures catch up.

By the way, you ignored my earlier question. After your concern that Arsenal do not have strength in depth, and Spurs do, please explain what happens when 5 of their first teamers get injured. How would Spurs shape up? I have tried to counter your points when you make them, but you have not.

Spurs to win the premier - I'll stick my neck out.

i can't say "no they won't" as they do have a chance. Of the 7 teams I named above, I do not think Spurs are my favourites, but that may be my heart talking, not my head. Why not, they do have a good squad. If I put my neck on the line, I think I have to say Chelsea.

I have stuck my neck out on the other thread, if you finish higher than chelsea you will win the league.Cant see united finshing higher than 3rd. Do you honestly think that ramsey is better than arteta, carzola, wilshere and ozil to a certain extent. You tell me how he plays before most of these when they are fully fit.
Look at spurs bench compared to arsenals, do you think they compare equally?? Liverpool, wont do much, squad is thread bare.
As i previously stated.......
1. Chelsea
2.Shitty
3. Take your pick

ramsey not as good as ozil ,carzola is a different type of player as he more attacking from the wings  arteta and jack at present  ramsey is preforming better and scoring which takes the pressure off both as they get their fitness back  so great competition for midfield places and flamini is in the holding role ,and still theo , podolski and alex  to return from injuries so a good mix of players to compete for places which we will need to hopefully compete this season and maybe win a trophy  fingers crossed , ramsey has taken a lot of stick but after the bad leg break he deserves his time in the limelight at arsenal and he seems to be enjoying his game which is good for the club , and as well vermallen cant get in the starting line up so another good player  who has to bide his time  so we seem to have a squad at present but as all gooners know and i have previously stated the prem league is a marathon and even though utd have had a slow start they always have a good run in the new year and spurs have bought well  so loads of twists and turns this season and could be the closest race for seasons

Fair point - I missed that. I guess we agree on that, Chelsea up the top. Boooo. Hope we're wrong. Also agree that ManC "should" the there or thereabouts! The squad they have is very good, surely they can push for the title. Also feel that ManU will be high up. All the people questioning them at the moment, like they have turned into a crap team overnight. No they haven't. Sure they lost the top man, and the "dynamic" in the dressing room/team has changed, but they will still be up there.

Looking at the Spurs bench - I don't know how strong it is, I don't know half the players, so I am sticking to the Arsenal having a stronger squad! I think it is an important time of the season right now for Arsenal, even this early. They play away at West Brom next, then home to Norwich, then away at Palace. The way they are playing, confidence etc, could mean 3 wins, and then they play Liverpool at home. The momentum by then could be crucial in getting a result against the scousers, followed by the visit to ManU the week after. We will see.

Great result away from home against an in-form Baggies team. Didn't watch, listened to 5Live commentary. Sounded like a cracking second half, both teams could have made worthy winners, but a point each probably about right. At least that is another away game out the way. Hopefully our squad will have some numbers back after the international break. Still top of the league :)

the media has gone into overdrive with who Arsene may sign next in January  all of a sudden the gunners are linked with everyone big names and names we have not heard of and with him not now worrying about spending big  hopefully [ fingers crossed] we may get back to challenging for the major trophies over the season ,would make a nice change but in the epl anyone can beat anyone and you need a little luck as well as skill  to win a cup , intresting times for gooners and maybe the long wait could be over , i hope so but plenty of games to come over the coming months

we gooners have not had a lot to cheer us up over the last few seasons but we are optimistic that maybe we may be able to compete with the likes of utd  city ,chelsea and as it sticks in the throat spurs for the major cups ,we have had a lot of crap thrown at us at at last we have all found out that moving from highbury has cost the club lots of money and players being sold to balance the books so there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel and with the emirates nearing being paid off, the money can be invested into the team , yes we are top for now but all gooners would swap that for top at the end of may , a long season ahead and perhaps we may be in the race at the end , us gunners know there are no medals for being top now but other supporters are taking the gunners seriously for the first time for ages which can only be good for football in england

well the gunners dragged themselves over the line watched 1st half on bt sport and was well impressed with the way palace played they closed down spaces and and broke out at pace not ozils best game for the gunners but 3 points will do shame flamini had to go off he has played well this season and breaks the play up ramsey was also quiet in the 1st half but that is credit to the way palace set their stall out  Liverpool and Man U coming up in the league so we will have to be at our best to get points from these teams so perhaps we will have more idea if we are in with a chance of trophies this season ,
