Arsenal's midfield lacks a tall, strong and commanding box to box midfielder. Someone who is capable of allowing the players around him to play more freely and cover the back 4 but who can also create goalscoring chances going forward and is comfortable on the ball under pressure.

To all the Eds, who do you think would be viable targets for Arsenal subject to player sales etc?

Who would everyone else like to see us sign?

{Ed002's Note - Kokcu perhaps.}

Isn't he an promenetly an attacking midfielder? And he's 5ft 8. I was thinking more of the Rabiot, Doucoure type player although I'm not saying it's them that we need to sign. Someone to play behind Kocku to allow him not to come back so deep. Something that Ozil and even our strikers have been made to do due to the weak midfield.

{Ed002's Note - Unless Arsenal can sell players they will not have money to spend.}

Is it just me or would you give mustafi another year?

I thought he improved quite a lot under Arteta.

I think he's out of contract this summer mate so might want more than a 1 year deal to stay when he could potentially negotiate a really good deal somewhere else as free agent.
He has shown signs of improving under Arteta but I'm not sure enough to be offered more than 1 year deal right now.

His contract expires next year mate.

I don't mind keeping Mustafi, but we need to move some CB's. I think they are all capable but need a more stable midfield in front of them. A strong Def mid is needed, as it has been for many years now.

I agree Davy, have been saying the same for years.

Oh cheers DG mate, in that case definitely let him run it down and see how it goes from there.
Agree Davy a natural DM with a real appreciation for stopping goal scoring chances happening has been missing for years, although alongside Caz Le Coq was doing a very good impression of one.

It’s criminal to have Torreira, Matteo and Granite as the spine of our midfield protecting a back 4 with a less that great pair of centrebacks - we can’t start with Mustafi, Luiz or Papa as centre backs plus we need to change that midfield 3.

Hi Eds and fellow Gooners, does anyone know if players bought in this transfer window will be able to play for us till the end of the season? Hope everyone is ok and staying safe 😊⚽🏘️.

{Ed002's Note - No they can't.}

Thanks Ed002. Strange times indeed. What about players on loan? I'm thinking of William Saliba in particular.

{Ed002's Note - Of course not. He is not a registered player.}

Hi Ed.
How far do you think Nicholas Pepe is in making your top 10? What do you think he needs to work on to get there?
I'm not asking because he plays for my team or because of his price tag. In asking because having watched him play even before his Arsenal days, I think I he has something special. He is just a but raw according me.

{Ed001's Note - really? I think he has a long way to go. First he needs to learn to control a ball, his first touch is poor. Then he needs to develop intelligence, as he has absolutely none. He can dribble, do fancy tricks and shoot, but he very rarely does them at the right times. Even after all that he needs to work harder and become consistent. Then he will be in with a shout.}

I think he lacks confidence and plays with his head down too much.
Arteta has proved that he can improve the games of players in Pepe's postion so hopefully we will see some improvement.

Top 10 worst buy in last 5 years - yep.

Top 10 in our Normal starting line up which includes Luiz, Mustafi, Granit, Torreira, Matteo etc - not a difficult top 10 to breach.

He’s in my top 10 to sell

I’m not a fan and wish we’d never bought him to be honest. More to do with his ineffectiveness, not necessary and lacks penetration. Sorry.

Wrong player for the wrong reasons, signing Pepe was meant to be a show of ambition and intent by then manager, Josh and pals but in reality it highlighted one and all were way out of thier depths.

Wish we'd signed Zaha instead! Said that at the time as well.

Me too Jim, Zahra was premier league proven and premier league ready to go plus desperately wanted to play for Arsenal, what more could you want from a new player?

At 25, it doesn't seem like he has much time left.

Right boys and girls, we are at the right back position

I've gone for Lee Dixon, a great all round full back.

26 May 2020 12:54:46
Dixon or Viv Anderson for me mate.

26 May 2020 14:21:33
I liked Viv a lot, but Lee just edges it, because he was a longer serving player.

One and only Debuchy for me lads. 13 appearances 1 goal. GOAT 🐐.

Pat Rice for me club legend in my humble opinion COYG.

No sorry boys I've changed my mind, it's absolutely got to be Bacary Sagna for me, for my money he had to be the best right back around at that time and stuck by the Arsenal even though times weren't brilliant when he could have joined almost any other club he'd wanted too at that time. and only left in the end because we refused to give him the last pay day he'd well and truly earned with us. Can't believe I forgot him earlier on.
Nailed on definitely Seaman Sagna Cole at 1 2 3 for me.

Seaman, Sagna, Cole, Keown and Sol = that’s my defence

Big shock dropping Adams but there’s enough leadership in that back 4 plus pace.

Seaman Sagna Cole Adams Campbell for me mate.
Big Tony was Mr Arsenal, excellent defender and a leader who lead by example. He organised and demanded from everyone around him like no other I've seen. I just can't imagine anyone playing along side him even thinking of shirking thier personal or collective responsibilities.

27 May 2020 22:20:46
For me Keown is the best man marker and with the quality of the top strikers out there. I can’t leave him out plus he brings leadership, winning mentality and fear factor - no hiding place with him.

So that left me Sol or Adams. For me Sol won it on pace especially given today’s game. Great on the ball, big presence and great in air - he was a leader also.

Hence Tony didn’t make it - tough call. I know.

Sorry Malaga - I will remember to value longevity and loyalty over quality and stick to the topic. I got excited and drifted off piste.

Just be yourself SY even if that means being a wine drinking Tory hairest:-) . Longevity and loyalty are excellent values but quality has to be taken into consideration or its just an old boys club where Wilshere has higher standing than Bergkamp Henry and Vieira. It's always about ballance and personal opinions.

Eboue, hands down.

Apart from one horrible game I thought Eboue was ok Jack, when people say a player had the game of their life where everything they did was spot on brilliant that day poor old Eboue showed it was possible to have the complete opposite game too.
Felt so sorry for him that game.
