    Agree with that was speaking to one of my unfortunate spud mates and he was saying rather than a few holding mids they needed someone to create something when Bale aint turning up and now Bales on his way it is more of a problem, figured Holtby might push on this year but dunno if it will be enough (hopefully not)
    I think that is where Willian would have been a perfect fit for them. We're quite lucky they missed out on him.

    Shame Spurs won again but they're not convincing. Okay their new players will need time to bed in but so far their only goals have been penalties. As I said, they are desperate for some creativity, Sandro, Capoue and Paulinho are all too similar. Their fullbacks are also pretty poor, I would be surprised if they don't bring in a LB before the window closes.

    Should be a good game next week, will be intriguing.

    We will win against Spurs next week. I'm sure of that, despite lack of signings I still believe our team is stronger with more experience... What now spurs can't even win a game without a penalty decision? PATHETIC, they need someone to come 'bale' then out eh .

    You have to use common sense and choose pick what to believe. 99.9% certain Poldi isn't leaving.
    Exactly, especially with them 2 goals he scored yesterday. His place at Arsenal is sealed tight. Arsene even said so.

    Spurs have quantity but not quality, we are the opposite.

    Players like Rosicky, Wilshere and Cazorla would walk into the spurs side.

    Dembele isn't creative. He's just got a decent shot on him and a bit of strength tbh.

    Either one of Sandro, Paulinho and Capoue would probably walk into the Arsenal side, as you're so desperate for a DM. These type of comparisons don't really prove anything.

    Players like Lloris, Vertonghen, Sandro/Paulinho and Soldado would walk into the Arsenal side.

    See what I did there?

    This really has the makings of the most open title race in recent times. The so called big teams are gonna draw and lose a few games. We'll never have a better chance to mount a challenge - if we stay consistent, you never know.

    Stronger in what sense? If you guys want to compete in all competitions then you need depth. Whats funny is that even last season there was a concern that Wenger was overplaying some of his players like Wilshere and Cazorla because he hardly rotated. With your current squad that situation is going to be worse, since you have even less players than last season. You can't rely on the whole first 11 to perform consistently through the whole season, that's absurd. I mean if you guys were 2-0 down to Spurs who would you have on your bench to 'Bale' you out?

    All the top European teams have options, you don't.

    Wenger is bringing in players. Probably 3 or 4 and that will give us the depth we need once we welcome back Ox and Diaby. It'll give us a squad size of about 22/23.

    As for being two nil down to spurs. Cough. 5-2, ring any bells?

    Usually the Everton's and Newcastles who don't have the squads to keep it up. Arsenal need to bring people in, the CB issue is the biggest for me. 3 CBs just is not enough, its the bare minimum you want to enter a game with let alone a season. Then the striker issue, still not convinced by Giroud, and beyond him you're limited. I think Arsenal need 3 players,of standard before you can talk about a title challenge, CB, DM/CM, and ST.

    I'll believe it when I see it. Oh and that match where you had a man advantage for more than 3/4 of the game?

    No. Haha.

    Your memory obviously isn't as good as you think it is. 5-2 has become a bit of a theme at the Emirates. The one before that when we trailed 2-0 at half time.

    Ohhhh right.... you're talking about the very last game between you two sides where you were trailing 2-0 at HT? Ahh finally we're on speaking terms! And talking about themes at the Emirates.... Hasn't empty seats and booing become quite a regular theme over there recently? Or is my memory deceiving me again? :rolleyes:
