Squad Management


#21

AC…

How you guys did on Poldi, I return the favor on Alex… :poldi::poldi::poldi:

No, no, no… just kidding…

I really, really think he is just an Average Joe, a squad player, a project, a spare, NOT a starter.
Still, it is Wenger’s fault. He is the one to start an average player.

I have nothing personal against Iwobi.
He may be a nice kid, but far from a starter material.


#22

To be fair, we don’t have much choice but to start average players :see_no_evil:


#23

Why loan out Perez?
Why let Sanchez run down to last year of contract and don’t (still) have a solution/replacement?
Why not reinforce proactively to accompany Ozil and Sanchez?

Wenger has to start average players because he made himself to do so.

If he could spend 30m+ on Mustafi, 30m+ on Xhaka, 50m+ on Laca… that means we did have the money, before and now and after. The reserve fund is still untouched.

No quality in the market? Bullshit.
How much Mbappe, De Bruyne was a few seasons back???
When everybody was about 20-30m, he chose not to buy.
Now everybody is 40, 50m or more… whom can we buy?


#24

With Coquelin gone, Deadwood count is now 8.
Campbell being injured means no way of selling him.

So the task of selling is 7 players.

Hopefully Theo goes in this window as well. Sanchez looks set as well.

So we would need to sell 5 players in summer. Still annoying to have that much work on top of purchasing players.


#25

Wonder how many new players we have for next season…


#26

Are you labelling Sanchez dead wood ? :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:


#27

At least Mavropanos!

The minimum should probably be two attacking players and a back-up right back. If we don’t do anything else this winter.


#28

how much stability left??
Sigh…


#29

Sanchez & Theo out, Mkhitaryan in.
Hopefully we have linedup a midfielder.

If Ozil signs, we will only need to sell 5 players. 7 would be great if we could move on Welbeck & Xhaka.


#30

Squad updated.

Ozil signed so unlisted as potential sale & Welbeck listed as deadwood.
Team looks so much cleaner now with major deadwoods sold.
Still 6 to go out of which Per, Joel Campbell & Cazorla need not be sold.

Need to find the way to move on Jenkinson, Danny Welbeck & Lucas Perez.

Need a winger, defensive midfielder, center back & probably a keeper. Summer agendas perhaps.

Or Hopefully some activity remains on deadline day.


#31

We agree on the 4 signings we need to make :clap:


#32

Can we re-call Perez and make him a sub of striker?
Laca, Auba, Perez… not bad. A little bit thin but it is really not bad; consider Wenger’s other child Iwobi will get some (major) minutes.
Give Welbeck a free ticket and send him away as gift.


#33

I would much rather play Perez than Welbeck at this point


#34

Would you say he will be coming back from his loan or do you think he is he gone now?


#35

Still a very young squad then. Only Cech, Koscielny and Monreal aged 30+ of those likely to still be in the playing squad in August.

Can’t believe some people had issues with signing Aubameyang because he’s nearly 29 :thinking:


#36

At least we are all able to agree that he is actually 28 :laughing:
