    He may stay or he may go....I just personally don't take any human at face value anymore.

    I was surprised when I saw the news on twitter. I thought he had a good season consider Fiorentina sucked and he's only 18.

    He's 20 but yeah. They seem to like Dragowski more. It's fine but then why TF did they start Lafont all along?

    I don't think he will leave, that being said Torriera has stated that he misses Italy and has found the adjustment to English life style more difficult than he thought. I have read that the team is hoping to make Lucas take more English classes so the language barrier will be less of a strain.

    After the way they played in the last 2 months I don't think they really deserved it anyways. Would have been amazing though just for the ability to draw players in.

    As a Juve fan I’d be thrilled to have Pereira. Would be absolutely crushed if we replace Cancelo with fkn Trippier.

    Pereira might actually be better than Cancelo. Cancelo is great offensively but Pereira is the more complete RB.

    Players that never want to win anything could play for tottenham, and there are so many better CL clubs.

    Without the ref robbing us of the win in the NLD we would have had it

    I'm not about to put it one call by a ref.....If we minimized the countless defensive breakdowns we would have had better results. Simple as that.

    Stop with this BS.
    Maybe Auba should've made his kick?

    Quit making excuses. Every team has those moments over a long season. I can point to bad calls and bad luck in Spurs matches that had they gone the other way they would've been top 4 comfortably rather than taking it to the wire.

    Arsenal finished one point below Tottenham, don't act like its a large difference. Arsenal struggled with a lot more injuries too, so I would probably bet on Arsenal to finish above Tottenham next season. I would rather play for Arsenal, they have a lot more promising youngsters, a new promising coach who is starting to implement his ideas, a huge loyal global fanbase ( in contrast to Tottenham who basically have no fans at all) and a rich history with lots of titles.

    Again. One team was in the CL. One team was in the CL final. We all know from your 10ish posts here you’d rather play for Arsenal. We all know you have some very gunner tinted glasses. You’ve made that very clear. It doesn’t matter about one point below. It matters where you finished.

    I was just trying to point out how incredibly close it was, while fans are acting like its a huge difference and that we are literally miles of. With a coach who is only just starting to implement his ideas and promising new talent on the way, I would bet on Arsenal finish above Tottenham next season.

    Again, the difference was extremely small and could have gone either way so don't act like Sp*rs are far ahead. Again, I do think most players would like to play for a team who actually has fans, and I do think most players see more potential in the Arsenal team going forward.

    Yes and Spurs could have gone undefeated. We all can play the what if.

    Who are the promising talent at Arsenal? Since Guendouzi sucks, that limits it.

    Guendouzi is horrible yes, but some very good established players under 23 are Holding, Torriera, Bellerin and Iwobi. Bukayo Saka is one of the youngest PL players ever, Reiss Nelson and Emile Smith Rowe are superb talents, Joe Willock will suprise everyone next season with his vision, late runs into the box, goalscoring instincts from midfield, amazing dribbling and high intensity pressing, Folarin Balogun and Tyreece John Jules had historic scoring numbers in the U23 and U18 teams, and Bielik while not close to a supertalent looks decent. Arsenal won the U18 Premier League and finished second in the U23 division. I can’t think of any team in the league that has as good young prospects as Arsenal, Spurs don’t have one that I could see become a first team regular besides possibly Oliver Skipp

    You mention Holding, Iwobi, and Bellerin but don’t mention Winks, Alli, Sanchez, Foyth, etc. gosh there really is something wrong here. You’re losing credibility with each post.

    Those Spurs players are not close to being good enough to compare to the Arsenal youngsters, I hope you realise that. I was just talking about Arsenal and not Spurs in that comment so i don’t see why I would randomly include Tottenham players.

    Winks is not good at all, Holding is a lot better than Sanchez, Alli is decent I will admit, and do you seriously think Foyth is a good prospect? Don’t make me laugh

    Bellerin and Holding > Foyth and Sanchez ( the king of errors, Tottenhams Mustafi) by a huge distance
    Torriera > Winks
    Alli > Iwobi

    Coming through the academy at the moment, Spurs basically have no one at all.

    Wow. This is just hilarious at this point. Holding can’t even beat out Koscielny and Mustafi. Winks is on the same level as Torreira. Also Kane/Eriksen/Son aren’t old. I take Spurs future over Arsenal everyday.

    When fit, Holding was by far Arsenal’s best defender, do you watch us? He started basically every game before his injury. Holding is a million miles ahead of Foyth, who is an average prospect at best, and Sanchez, who is the king of errors, Tottenhams Mustafi. Torriera was the best midfielder in the Prem for a 2 month period and is a million miles ahead of Winks at almost every attribute.

    Also, Lacazette, Leno and Maitland Niles aren’t old.

    If you seriously think Eriksen and Son would want to stay and remain trophyless there whole life while playing in front of 2 people every home game something is wrong.

    I give up. There’s no arguing with someone who thinks Arsenal is anything better than mediocre at this point.

    There were some early rumors about United targeting him if De Gea leaves. Wonder if this’ll push them a little more towards that. Although I’m not sure where de gea goes at this point. PSG seems the only option, but I haven’t seen anything linking them from good sources.

    “Torriera was the best midfielder in the Prem for a 2 month period“

    Legit one of the funniest things I’ve read on here in a long time.
