Reports that AC Milan are after Elneny, who hasn't settled in Turkey, for a reported £13m. If Sanllehi pulls that one off he is truly a genius.
Other reports indicate that both Milan clubs are interested in Ozil, who seems odds on to move during the next window, getting some or all of his inflated wages off our books would be excellent.

Reports that we are interested in a young Spanish CB, Pau Torres. Perhaps our CB's for next season will be: Luiz, Holding, Saliba and Torres.
Sokratis will be in the final year of his contract, so perhaps we will try to sell him. Mustafi will be allowed to go.
Madley lacks experience and could benefit from a loan deal.
Mavrapanos has suffered from injury and doesn't appear favoured by Emery. Perhaps a loan deal would be beneficial.
Chambers, at best a utility player providing cover.

Remember how we used to all pull the girl we liked the best pigtails in primary school Eden mate :-) .
Obviously RG is well aware Calum is completely out of his league and over compensates to hide his true feelings, over being the operative word as in OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER again, and again and again AND AGAIN, basically yet another bog standard RG post :-)

Well, turns out he really can't make decisions. He can't even name a captain. I give up

Arsenal players held a secret vote to help Unai Emery decide on his new 'five captains'. with Granit Xhaka, Mesut Ozil, Rob Holding and David Luiz all in the running

Embarrassing like our defending and tactics.

Please do something noteworthy so I can post something positive Boss - like resign?

Read Ormsteins version of events mate, sounds more like a plea for support of a player under pressure from the fans.
I doubt any kind of vote took place that's just social media or tabloid trouble making in my opinion now mate.

On Twitter? That Emery consulted the players even though it’s taken this long and still can’t make a decision on Vice Captain. I still give up.

On BBC mate.
As you know SY mate I would rather Emery wasn't our manager and Xhaka wasn't our player but I try to see thugs objectively and as unbiased as I possibly can.
True Emery Plays Xhaka regardless of his ability and performances and even made him captain before the season started all of which I totally I disagree with him on but I genuinely think today is about club and players rallying round and getting behind a colleague who is receiving difficult personal treatment from some fans.

Per BBC : Emery told the squad of his decision on Friday, after consulting with players.

Per Holding:

Discussing Arsenal’s captaincy situation, Holding said: ‘We had a vote the other week so we’ll see what happens and see who gets named. ‘[We had to] write names down and then give them to the manager. He will go through them obviously with his input and then we’ll see what happens. ‘I don’t know [when the decision will be announced]. I think it will be in the next couple of days or weeks. I have no idea.

Sorry but the guy can’t make a simple decision.

Why is Unai Emery asking his players to vote on who should be captain? It’s pathetic. Seriously. Make a decision!

When you start worrying about what your players think, you’re in trouble. And why does he need FIVE captains anyway?

Great points.

Not much about what Emery does makes sense to me SY, the defensive side of our midfield and defence are worse now than before he arrived and that was the area that Arsene refused to address and ultimately it cost him his job.
Unfortunately we are with Emery righ back to exactly where we were with Arsene just waiting for someone somewhere to make the decision to let him go.

Hello Ed's, any idea if arsenal are going to go back for Dayot Upamacano in January?

{Ed002's Note - I would not think there is any chance - I explained the cost.}

Hey Jim, 3 @ the back, Tor and Guen in front of them and 3 up front. That's only 8 outfield players, maybe I'm missing something. I too have run out of patience with Xhaka, I know he's supposed to protect the back line but maybe when our back line is more competent, our defensive mids will be able to do a better job. Who would want be goalie in this set up.

I totally agree Jim 3 4 3 is the sensible way forward given the players available at the moment.
Make sure you always start will 11 players by dropping Xhaka permanently.
Play 3 4 3 in every single game until Belerin and Tierney are both 100% fit and see if the players benefit from having a settled formation.
Decide your best 11 from currently available players and give them 4 or 5 games together and see what happens.
If you win 5 out of 5 leave well alone don't tinker fiddle or play about simply relax and enjoy.

That went off topic, but yeah, forget this 3 at the back total italia 90 nonsense, the only reason that came back was cos Conte went to that setup after we gave em a tonking. COYG.

3 st the back: totally whack.

I am also not a fan of the 3 at the back, because we still play two wingbacks not wide midfielders as part of the 4, so its a con, its not 3-4-3 at all, its 5-2-3. What you end up with is 3 central defenders still playing narrow and effectively marking just one center-forward, with a midfield two in front getting completely dominated and overun, which is exactly what our problem is. Also play 3-4-3 and you might as well send Cabellos back to RM, as he won't start in that formation? Much prefer the extra midfielder in a 4-3-3 with Ceballos mixed in with Torr and Willock/ Guen.

Fans continue to criticise Emery, but don't forget he has only had one season to form the squad as he wishes. He has brought in a total of 8 permanent signings, which includes young Martinelli and Tierney who has yet to start. Next season Saliva arrives.
I am sure Emery wishes to sell and replace: Ozil, Mkhitaryan and Mustafi. Is he convinced by either option at RB and Kolasinac at LB?
My main concern is the defensive side, let's see if the 3 returning defenders improve our defence.

Our display against Spurs was very encouraging, we were all over them for large parts of the game. The goals we conceded were poor but ultimately hard to blame on the manager.
First goal: individual error from Sokratis + individual error from Leno
Second goal: Utterly stupid from Xhaka.

If the football we put together in the second half is what we can begin to expect from Emery's team then I'm very impressed. Ironically it reminded me a lot of Poch's early days with Saints, in terms of the pressing, energy and attacking threat, but without the defensive stability (yet) .

Fans do continue to criticise Emery, in my view because there remain baffling elements to his leadership; accepting that not all transfers in and out will be done at his sole bidding, there has been some crazy activity:
* Ramsey's allowed departure
* Pepe - who of course could turn out to be very good - ahead of a proven Premier League player in Zaha, who publicly wanted to come, who could have been bought for the same if not less.
* the persisnet caution over playing Lacazette and Aubameyang together when it is plain to see they are a beautiful and harmonious strike force who bring out the best in each other.
* Torreira - by far and away our most effective defensive midfielder last season, but used so sparingly and often being favoured by.
Emery's most baffling muse of all: Xhaka.
I could bang on and on about Xhaka, but simply ask: why? And Captain too? Unfathomable.

To give balance: Iwobi. Up to £35m in total! Genuis, sheer genius.

With rumours of a £3m fee for Monreal, it seems odd that the reported fee was only £250,000. Thoughts?

For some strange reason we wanted him gone, makes absolutely no sense to me but time will tell as always.

Hi G62 - I have felt that both Monreal and Kolasinac had deficiencies in their game. Monreal lacked pace and Kolasinac lacks defensive ability. Hence why we signed Tierney and unless Kolasinac improves defensively I can see him being replaced in the not too distant future, maybe in one of the next two windows?

As far as selling Monreal, we bank the low sum paid, plus we get his wages off our books. I assume that Tierney will be back soon, so we have 2 options at LB.

As far as the cover Montreal provided at CB, we still have: Luiz, Sokratis, Mustafi, Holding, Mavrapanos, Chambers and at a push Medley, who clearly isn't ready to play PL level yet. Whether we play 2 or 3 CB's that is ample cover. Before people say we should have sold sold Mustafi rather than Monreal, perhaps yes, but we haven't been able to do so.

Hi RG if everything goes according to plan your 6 numbers come up you live a life of luxury but! Just on the off chance your lottery numbers don't come up you need an alternative plan to pay your way until they do come up, Tierney has had injury problems for 18 months and was injured when we bought him and even when eventually he is fit he will moving up several levels from Scottish premier to English premier league and when you take all those things into account Tierney is very unknown risky basket to place all your eggs in unnecessarily.

G62 - what a peculiar comment. The medical team will have checked Tierney and I am sure he will return fit and will be an upgrade on Monreal.

Is it the same medical team that checked Kim Kalstrom :-) .
Hopefully Tierney will be available by October and be a sensation but personally I'd have hedged my bets until it happened rather than replying on hope alone.
Just doesn't make sense to me especially when you consider we only received 70% of one week of Mesuts weekky wage in return for Nacho.

To be fair if you read his goodbye message doesn't he say about wanting to go back home. Guy just went about it in a more dignified way than someone else did.

G62 - surely even you are aware that we have changed the medical set up at the club since the Kalstrom episode.
It appears that Tierney will return after the International break, which would have influenced Emery’s decision to sell Monreal. We have two LB’s, which is normal, perhaps he has player in mind who can play in that position if necessary.
There will be a saving in wages which can go towards the cost of a signing in January. Perhaps we are looking for another left back as I recall Emery has been looking to sign a LB since he arrived as he didn’t seem convinced by either options. We may indeed replace Kolasinac, who lacks defensively.
