    Mans talking about games played when his side will more than likely play 40 next season

    We are a striker and Winger away from being real challengers imo. We'd have as strong a starting XI as everyone bar maybe city and Chelsea, but far more depth and a team that's been playing together for a while. The issue is who? Morata isn't taking us to the next level for a few years imo, nor is Lacazette. Even a move for Aubamayang would be far too ambitious. Lukaku is probably most realistic, but he's not proven in CL and is streaky as ****

    As if a team managed by Arsene Wenger will play that many.

    For us to play less than 52 games a season, we'd have to do really badly in the cups assuming we get R16 of Champions League as usual

    When I was watching him in the FA Cup against United, I was shocked at how bad Lukaku's first touch actually is. Messed up 3/4 clear cut chances with a poor first touch. Not convinced he'd fit in here. He's like a better Arouna Kone. Just a black battering ram that you keep throwing against defenders and eventually they will leak a goal.

    Yet, we'll probably win more trophies, if not the same.

    I can see the pros and cons. There's an argument that we've never seen him play for a team who has a lot of the ball. He's first touch is poor, but his finishing is better than Girouds. I'd say go for a big name and if that fails put in a bid, but chances are we'd be overpaying by at least £10mil given his age and previous cost.

    Maybe so, but I reckon we'll get further in the Champions League than you

    Dbi, you haven't even won it and your manager has the most losses in the competition.

    Taking the piss out of a team who have the Champions League is like taking the piss out of Gerard Pique because Shakira's blonde.

    Welcome Xhaka, probably the best non-Bayern CM in Germany and still young. Midfield depth is unreal now. Xhaka/Jack/Ozil offers the lot imo

    Looks very likely that well also sign a £20m range CB with all the links going round too...

    Need to bin Walcott and get a forward/winger now and we'll be in the mix but this is difficult of course

    He'll be annoyed Arsenal didn't sign Kondogbia or Kante instead of Xhaka though

    Looks like once again we'll be relying on what Real Madrid do in the transfer window again.

    2015 - Benzema
    2014 Khedira
    2013 - Ozil

    Wenger's building of a team is more gradual and more subtle than other managers. He is willing to give players already at the club a chance, but I don't doubt that he will get rid of them if they consistently disappoint. One of his problems is that he sometimes gives too many chances whereas other managers are very quick and ruthless.

    I do think Jack is a cut above Ramsey though based on class. I base my view on what I have seen of him in big games. Ramsey offers nothing exceptional and relies too much on form and being put in the right position. Jack's close control is worth him being in the team alone.

    There's 90% truth in that. But it's always still, unequivocally, worthier than yours!
