    Indeed, even Falcrap managed to score.
    Do you still want him to sign on a permanent deal?

    I'd take him if we can renegotiate the price. £25m yes, £44m absolutely not.

    He's shown glimpses of what he can do, but overall he's been a flop. Our dire midfield/tactics and his injuries haven't helped him.

    We've got an outside chance at the PL. If we can get to 30 games and 6-8 points off the top we have got a chance (a very small one). To win it we can only afford to drop around 3-5 points to the end of the season imo.
    I'm normally optimistic but we have no chance of winning the league, if Chelsea carry on at their current points per game rate they'll finish on 90 points, 3 more than we can get even if we win our last 16 games. Chelsea and city would have to royally **** up and us win at least 14 of our last 16 games to even stand a chance, and I don't think either have even a small chance of happening

    Good to see paulista has got a work permit according to BBC, looks like a done deal although a bit more expensive than I hoped.

    Now a cheeky contract deal with Khedira and put in feelers for Carvalho and Czech or another keeper for the summer...

    Mind you I'd still say we're a gk, cdm, St and even winger short of a title challenging side even with our cb crisis eased

    We'd have to beat United away, Chelsea at home and even after that get a significant swing in our favour to catch that gap up...

    Monaco will be tough but you should get through. No James or Falcao but they've still got Moutinho, Toulalan and Berbatov who can do damage on their day.

    If Wenger gets the tactics right(which he seems like he's doing) then you should be fine.

    Just because I've been slating his performances at United(which haven't been that shocking considering he's isolated as hell in Van Gaals system) doesn't mean that he isn't a good player who can hurt a team when on form. Van Gaal is to blame for Falcaos underperformance.

    Rooney is only striker looking good and he's playing at CM which explains most of the problems.

    Yeah, he's was injured for a while and has 1 goal and 1 assist in 6 appearances so nothing too major that would hurt Arsenal.

    And lol at people forgetting we actually got owned by Monaco in our own gaff in pre-season.

    It was a slow 1-0 where half of our players weren't even fully fit. Our 3rd XI beat Benfica 5-1 doesn't mean they'd do it again..

    Thing is if we continue with this 4-3-3 set up then a new striker wouldn't be as necessarry as say the other positions. I would say that a natural winger is essential however because right now we've only got Theo and Sanchez. I do like Sanchez playing behind the striker however. GK is not essential but we do need a new ball distributor to replace Arteta

    Tbh he wants to see if he'll still get the playing time, so I'd understand his decision not to rush and sign a contract.

    If you switch to 4-3-3 then it's the end of Özil's career here. Predict a move back to Bundesliga (probs Wolfsburg) for £25m then.

    We've been playing 4-3-3 for a long time now. He's also already played 4-3-3 against Brighton where he scored?

    Yeah this. Coquelin is 23 whilst being at loan to Charlton? Guy's proved he can play in the PL so deserves to be starting every game for a lower placed side.

    Gabriel is looking like it's pretty much done, now I'm hearing Arsene wants to get Kevin Großkreutz due to his versatility. I am not sure how I'd feel about this deal not like he'd improve us massively.
