    Mav, that’s what you said last season Mav.😊

    Now Arsenal are worse off than they were then their defence badly needed strengthening last season and Koschielny who is probably their best defender now wants out which would weaken it further as he has refused to travel for the pre season games, Ramsey their most influential midfield player has left for nothing and they have a very limited transfer budget. Then there’s Ozil?

    They’re in a real mess imo mate and it’s going to take some time to get out of it. And I can see Emery agitating to move on next Summer.

    All the Gooners will tell you it’s down to Kroenke and I think they’re right.

    Arsenal’s one positive is the appointment of Edu as DOF but that’s a medium to long term strategy.

    9-Kosc is one of them geriatrics Im talking about mate,him leaving its actually a good thing for Arse.Ramsey wasnt playing on regular basis anyway,and if they can get Ozil off and freshen the team up,then they can fight for that 4th place.
    Last year Chelsea still had Hazard and no transfer ban.And as for United,we have become Instagram.

    Mav, if you had read any of my previous posts I’m not expecting Chelsea to finish in the top 4 this season for all sorts of reasons.

    Specifically on Arsenal though Koschielny may be aging but he’s still Arsenal’s best defender and Ramsey played 28 times for Arsenal in the PL last season. Criminal mate to let a player of Ramsey’s ability leave for free.

    You won’t find too many Arsenal fans who think Arsenal will finish in the top 4, you predicted the same last season and this season Arsenal are in a worst place now than they were then and have a very limited transfer budget but they do have one or two exciting youngsters so we’ll see.

    nothing new or unexpected here for me! Kos,is our best defender (that shows how bad the rest are) but is to old and often injured now and not without a mistkae in him either….id let him go, been a great servant, use whatever money we get in…do we not have any youth CB’s worthy of stepping up….sad days for me but not unespected as i said…

    Don’t worry Buffy, keep Lucazade and Boomerang happy, and with Dick Emery in charge, you’ll have enough to stay above YooUtd and Chelsea… Of course, with how far the three of you have fallen, that might not be good enough for 4th if one of Leicester/Wolves/Everton have a particularly good season, but you finish top of Banjo’s “How The Mighty Have Fallen” Table.

    Oh, just finished reading the Goonie pages “over there”… πŸ™‚

    is that becuase you page “over there” is dead ….

    we have fallen less far as we had less far to fall, what with not being a “big club” spending sill amounts of money….that said, we are actually an utter mess at the moment, this year like many past i have zero expectations for the season, may sound a little silly but it is quite nice, as no expectations means you get less angry not fulfilling them and get the odd nice surprise a long the way!

    best i can come up with to keep sane πŸ˜‰

    Ha,ha so says the “trophy dodgers” didn’t Chelsea finish above Spurs in the PL last season,eliminate them from the League Cup and win a European trophy too. At least you can say “how the mighty have fallen” about Chelsea, Arsenal and United though!😊

    Stevo@6:33am agree with all of that mate problem is selling him won’t bring much in based on the fact he’s 34 next birthday and in the last year of his contract too plus his injury record.

    An injury free season and bringing in someone to play alongside him is what Arsenal really needed to happen. You need to get rid of him now though fee or no fee.

    I think Chelsea have a better squad then arsenal at the moment

    Arsenal can’t defend. They need a whole new back 4. I think Chelsea will finish up above arsenal

    Garry Cahill is available on a free Stevo. Considering the limited budget and the Koschielny situation that wouldn’t be a bad move for Arsenal short term imo.

    would be a bloody good move to be honest but it wont happen…..

    im just taking it easy, not stressed, the club has removed that over the last decade at least, we are what we are and my hopes and expectations now mirror that….its a shame but i also think there will be a shake up someway shape or form within the next decade

    transfer fees
    wages
    agents fees

    none of this is ustainable, FFS is having a limitied impact as can now be seen and felt by Chelsea…maybe just maybe if we ride the storm and get our house in order with a solid structure, team, plan and vision our star will rise again, until then we will do “OK” and may still win the odd cup

    lets me honest many smaller clubs would bight your hand off for that, just to win something, anything, you know…like the chickens πŸ™‚
