That remains to be seen.  Was is already looking questionable is whether the defense is necessarily suited to the style he's trying to implement.  

 

I think he's a good manager who is worth sticking with.  But Wenger should have gone earlier and has possibly made Emery's job even harder.  

 

He's had the toughest possible start but I can see him getting shape in that team by Jan.

 

No threat at all really this season.

It'll be interesting to see how they fare against their relegation rivals 

this weekend though. ? 

Both will be looking to get their first points on the board.

Wish I could be more confident of us taking advantage of Man United's miserable efforts tonight. Rather suspect Watford's Deeney at al must be licking their lips at the prospect of getting at our defence. I don't expect them to show The Emirates much respect and nor do we deserve it! I expect they will be all over us first half with a heavy press. Could be a red card game for them?

 

On the basis of form, it's just a question of how many they put past us before a second half fight back and how successful that is / how tired they are from over-committing.

 

23 yo Rob Holding makes his first Prem start this season in place of Sokratis who has been a bit disappointing as one of the Summer buys that was supposed to reinforce our recognisably lower half table quality backstoppers. No other changes from the Everton win, so Ozil, Ramsey, Aubamayang and Lacazette up front.

A nice win.

Nine in sucession😀

Wenger.s legacy is sinking into the sunset.

Emery is proving to  be a 

very astute coach.

The Gunner.s appear to be.   on the way back.

So far we have lost at home and away to the two teams from the top 8 that we have played (though I expected to lose both those anyway - then and now if we were replaying them) and then beaten 4 of the teams currently sitting in the bottom 6 of the league, plus Watford and Everton from mid-table.

 

The press and TV commentators love a strong story line (reborns and collapses sell attention) but they are overselling our capability to fetch up in the top 4 by May next year.

 

However the creative mid and finishers are looking more powerful game by game. If we do keep beating all the teams that we should be beating (quite likely) and Unai can train out the stupid give-ups at the back by our defence (my jury's out) I could see us being in no 5 or 6 by Xmas and, with a chance to window-buy at least one more quality centre back (not implying there is even partial quality there at the moment), that could see us through to a CL place in the back half. Too many ifs and buts. Top 4 at the end is a 25% possibility at the moment. Top 4 would be way better than most expected in a new manager's 1st regime

 

Koscielney is not expected back in training 'til November. Usually that's Arsenal-speak for Christmas and maybe never fully fit to PL exacting standards.

 

3rd November will be the first litmus test of whether our front line can still score more goals than our defence gives up when set against a proper defending outfit (Liverpool at the Emirates).

Perhaps very true.

But 

Remain very optimistic.that a C/L place is presently beckoning us.

Please take into consideration .that Man U . and Totts are currently under extreme pressure  to remain in the top Four .due to well documented maliases surrounding both clubs.

Some cracking goals there yesterday. 

What’s happening with Ramsey. Will he end up staying or going ? 

Brilliant flick for goal but wouldn’t say his body language was good afters

Rumoured to be wanting more money than those on the other side of the negotiation think he is worth. There will always be someone out there who'll pay more so I guess he'll go in January to make a bit of money rather than a free in summer. New boy Lucas Torreira is showing himself to be a more consistent mix of box to box/creative midfielder (come to that defensive mid thrown in too! One stunning goal of the season (for club at least) does not change the analysis, but I guess that there's always the chance that Unai can turn his head around enough so that he wants to play, does so effectively and changes the dynamic of the negotiation.

Chelsea head the queue for

Ramsey.s signature.

Would be a nice fit for Sarri.s Sexy football style

and no doubt a loss for us.

Money is the key word.

in this possible T/F

do hope Arsenal can come  up . with a increased Salary offer. which would keep him at Emirates.

Ok. I thought the media were indicating Liverpool as favs sign him. 

I guess it will depend on what the salary structure is and if you’re piss off other players by giving in to him. 

Politics eh.

Actually at Tottenham we have had our best start pts wise in years.

 

No malaise on the field as yet barring our rather lengthy injury list.

1 stunning goal?

Guys had a few Injuries but managed to play 250 games for you and whilst he is a bit inconsistent he is a class act. In today's clime he should be looking to maximise his wage for the coming peak years.

 

Ozil is on 15m a year.

I didn't mean he has only scored one stunning goal in his career and I don't deny he can be a class act on occasions.

 

I don't have enough info on the salary of what Ramsey is on, what his demands are, what the counter-offer is and what the others are on to start a p***ing match on whether he should be let go or not, so I just fall back on personal opinions which you have every right to counter-challenge.

 

I don't think he has played well for us this season at all and last season was a bit patchy too. Have you seen him play every game that he has started this season RC? I have and Unai has and Unai has not started him every available PL game. I do not approve of footballers not trying in order to move their negotiations along and the approach Wenger took to same was one of his greatest strengths IMO.

 

If Unai can get him to stay for a reasonable wage commensurate with his assessment of his future in the team (can Unai honestly promise him a start in every PL game? I don't think so) then I'll be pleased to see him stay.

 

Naturally there will be other teams that can see him fitting in with their present set-up/filling strategic holes and those with money to burn that can promise the earth (ie you start every game son and we love you) to get a journeyman (OK - journeyman with class, but inconsistent class) midfielder into their pack of cards. I do not think that's a reason for holding him.

 

It's all a matter of opinion and I was happy to see Wenger let Giroud go last season but that didn't work out for us in the sense that Chelsea have been able to reinvent him. For that reason I would hope that Unai can get him a good offer from overseas rather than feeding a direct competitor yet again, but that talks to the likes of Juve outbidding the likes of Chelsea (to name two random clubs from the rumour mills) or having him hang around like a sullen dog for a free in Summer. I don't favour the latter so if the money is right I say let the other's in the top 6 have a bidding round with any continental interest at Xmas
