    We’re no better than we were under Emery. Plus Emery was never given the players he wanted or the money to spend that Arteta has. Look at the players he has at his disposal - Martinelli, Pepe, Auba. We should be cutting teams to pieces on the counter with these guys, but it’s always slow possession based build up. Other than the Spurs game we just look the same as we did a year ago. Defensively pretty good, but slow to move the ball and lacking in ideas in front of goal. Having said all that Mike Dean, what a cock!

    Great performance, especially in the first half!

    Overmars and Ten Hag are gonna come and sort this shit out right?

    Losing 2-0 to this Chelsea team, even at home, in itself is not too terrible. it's just we looked so toothless in attack though, it can't be long before the dreaded voice of confidence if we carry on like this. Honestly we have a great squad, it's all on Arteta now.

    2 things Leno is not good at are coming out for crosses/corners as he tends to stay on his line and passing out, although TBH it may be more the way we play that makes him seem worse than he is. I'm willing to give Ramsdale the benefit of the doubt, but I've really not seem him play that much to know if he's better at either of those things. Having said all that, why did we sell Martinez???

    My guess is Ramsdale's numbers would be effected by the fact that Sheffield United got relegated last year. Plus he's only 23, so there's hopefully room for improvement. We definitely needed another attacking midfielder, whether it was Ødegaard or someone else. As much as I love Smith-Rowe, if he gets injured we basically have no creative threat from midfield (we don't want a repeat of the first half of last season!). Thomas Partey was signed to be the midfield muscle last year.

    I liked what I saw of Ødegaard last year, and as much as I like Maddison this signing makes more sense. Seems like Ramsdale is on too. Don't know much about him other than what I saw of him the few times we played against Sheffield United, but it seems like he's going to be the long term 1st choice keeper which is smart planning too. I'm still not sold on Arteta TBH, but at least the signings this window have been in the right age profile and all look like they can improve the team long term.

    Willock to Newcastle for $20+ million is just Martinez all over again. He’s way down the list of players we should be selling and we’ll regret it when he starts banging goals in regularly.

    I just think there are places for all of these players in the squad. Even if they aren't automatic starters right now the whole "move them on because they aren't good enough" logic doesn't ring true with most of them.

    I know there are a lot of people think Willock, Maitland-Niles, Nelson and Nketiah aren't good enough and need to be sold to free up funds but these are young players who are academy graduates that haven't had much game time and who've been pretty decent when out on Loan. I doubt they are on big wages, they love the club and most would probably be happy to be squad players for the time being. You only have to look at Smith Rowe and Martínez to see how these types of players can come good. Obviously we have no idea what's going on behind the scenes with agents, attitudes in training etc. but I honestly can't see why someone like Maitland-Niles was played so little last year.
  13. Denmark played the price for being too defensive in extra time. Really didn't need to as they could easily have been more expansive.

    Yeah that happens a lot, so hopefully that's the case here. I think the fact that we sold Martínez to Villa has got fans nervous.

    I'd love to think that this is just Villa being chancers, but maybe they know something we don't. I really hope it's the former, but it's not outside the realm of possibility that Arteta doesn't see Smith-Rowe fitting into whatever system it is he wants to play. Honestly though if he sells him most fans would (and should) be furious.
