    I see. If it really were to happen, it would probably just be a stopgap job for him to steer ship, until next summer when a larger club comes calling.

    Oh yeah, not long term that’s for sure. Taking a team from relegation zone to Top 8 would be an impressive resume boost.

    The big question is - is Salah generational? :laugh:

    Annoying that he wasn't subbed earlier against Pool (Kane that is). I guess Pochettino wanted to give him an opportunity to get a hattrick. Really no other reason for him to play until the 88th minute.

    Damn it, Poch. Keeping Kane in to try to get a hat trick caused this.

    So, AGM showed how much of a ****ing **** Chip Keswick is.

    Then you have FK who's one of the most intelligent Gooners saying that Arsenal were ready and wanting to buy Griezmann, but the Arsenal board ****ing said no to the deal. I give Wenger a lot of criticism here and some of it is just, but he's wanting the players to make this team better. I can't fault him for that, it's like when Arsenal couldn't buy Lemar in the summer because they supposedly didn't have the funds, but will randomly buy him after selling Sanchez and Ox. For a team that has a treasure chest of funds from all the CL groups stages we've made, why is this team on an internal budget? I mean the Arsenal, one of the richest clubs which doesn't even need Kroenke's own personal money has an internal budget....

    I think when Gomez has been good he has been excellent. But when he has been poor he is a train wreck.

    That being said he is a very young player who is a year removed from some bad knee injuries. I don’t think he stays at right back though.

    Well, Gomez has been quite good in a lot of games. But I can also mention at least three large mistakes he has made that made Liverpool concede a goal, without putting much thought into it. His defending when Lanzini scored last week was one of the most pathetic things ever. Whoscored ratings mean close to nothing to me.

    Individual mistakes are normal in a young player's game. The whole body of work has been great especially for a player his age playing in a system that is very hard on defenders.

    Clyne had back surgery today. Three more months.

    If Clyne is out that long they really ne d to get a CB in January, as they will need Gomez at RB.

    (They probably won’t get one)

    Everyone knows what he means but saying something as generic as that makes it way too easy to get roasted

    Is Iwobi's brace with Nigeria enough to warrant him a start in the North London derby?

    The bigger the match the more baffling Wenger's decisions are on who plays so anything is possible.

    Lacazette was good enough to score two on Germany, but not start for Arsenal.

    He should.

    Don't want to see Alexis play another minute for the club.

    Same with France. Won't start in meaningful matches for France as long as Giroud + Deschamps are still here.

    Maybe the player is the issue.

    How I would line Arsenal up Saturday

    Lacazette - Giroud
    Sanchez - Ozil - Iwobi
    Kola(WB) - Ramsay - Bellerin(WB)
    Monreal - Holding
    Cech

    Just run right at them

    That's partly because there are similar types of players but no big body like Giroud.
    That and DD's bias.
    No issue with Lacazette besides scoring in big games.
