here's to Lord Emery and the era.

Hopefully he can bring back the much missed St. Totteringham's day.

Yes, we should have established ourselves in the Champions League positions with about ten games to go, and to be honest I'd have taken two draws from Chelsea at home and your mob away so I suppose I'm a point better off than I would have been.

On the face of it, a one-off loss to Arsenal is not the end of the world, but it was more the manner of your performance and the response of your crowd to that performance which worries me going forward. It hasn't taken very long for the ghost of Wenger to be exorcised.

Great to see yesterday. We've been waiting years for a performance like that and a striker like Aubameyang. He has scored with each of his last 10 shots on target! And there is so much room for improvement too, both the Spurs goals were down to silly individual mistakes which should be relatively easy to cut out eventually and to think we've only been performing at our best for the second half of games all season. 20 points picked up in the second half of 14 league games and haven't been winning at HT in any still.

Agree re Ramsey. He hasn't played much and it's down to him but Emery has got the best out of a lot of our players and Ramsey can be better than Mhiki and Ozil so would like to see him stay. Not sure he'll even want to leave if we keep improving.
Report enpassant December 3, 2018 12:36 PM GMT
I gave credit to Ramsey for his performance yesterday but the only way he stays is if he accepts weekly wages well below what he obviously thinks he can get elsewhere. If that is the case I am still of the view we should let him leave. It will also send a message to the squad we have and potential targets. He would be a very handy squad player but that is probably not what he wants at this stage of his career.Not sure what EPL club is going to offer him what he wants (or what top side he would get into regularly);so he is likely left with looking abroad.

Lifted from Football365, I thought this was nicely put....

"There goes that power shift. This was supposed to be the season where Arsenal were in transition, when they started their daunting post-Wenger journey and, like all fallen dynasties before them, would struggle for years in the wilderness. Manchester United are still trying to find their way more than five years after Sir Alex Ferguson left; how would Arsenal fare in worse conditions?

Wenger’s work in his final years at the Emirates Stadium may never be respected for what it was. He was largely to blame for a gradual depreciation in results and performances, but he also oversaw their first steps into life without him. He rid the club of most of its deadwood, helped put in place a more secure body of power, and bequeathed upon his successor an excellent squad that could be moulded in their image. Emery deserves immense credit for taking Arsenal back to their seat at the top table in record time, but Wenger pulled the chair out for him."

Ozil been talked about many a time and still to this day has never put in a performance against a top tier opponent, show pony and actually slows us down on the counter. Iwobi looks better this season but needs to learn that not so many touches are needed, Kos was effective as a wing back too I thought. Nice to see Torreira get his first goal, that will do him a worldy of good and we have a real player in him and more goals to come for sure, Xhaka Capt, well still baffled by him but im willing to think he can still improve as the team does.

We certainly had a better squad there than Man U did after Fergerson left. How they won the league the season before was baffling. The thing is, imo, Wenger was not in total charge as he once was and was having things imposed upon him(including signings). We were in a clear decline season upon season under him. We are in a decent position because he was having his powerbase taken away; not because of it.

Report lurka December 3, 2018 6:38 PM GMT
seems there's still a few in the media spinning and rewriting history to make Wenger look good.

He made a lot of the players look like deadwood but it was really only him. Emery has them playing much better almost immediately, esp Lacazette and Iwobi, and that makes it the exact opposite of Man U when Fergie left. Fergie won the league the year he left FFS, the only way was down for Man U.

The 'secure body of power' was foisted on him by the management to take transfer control from him and improve the squad. And the squad wasn't quite excellent. The additions of Torreira and Guendouzi have been vital and what everyone said Arsenal needed in midfield for 12 years and Emery has dropped Cech and Ozil, two of the first names on Wenger's sheet and two players who might be called deadwood if anyone is.

They're not really comparable as Ozil always plays in the playmaker role and starts most games, Ramsey more often comes on as a substitute and is more versatile and has played pretty much every position across the midfield, spending a lot of time on the left wing in his early days.

Report lurka December 4, 2018 11:27 AM GMT
No Arsenal manager would or could have agreed to pay Sanchez what Man U or City would and Sanchez wanted out because of Wenger primarily. Ozil has just turned 30 and now is the time to get some money for him. The problem is he can sit there and take his wages as I can't see anyone else paying him those wages but you never know. If we sell at a knockdown price someone might. The contract Wenger gave him will end up costing the club so much money and tying up a huge chunk of the wage bill that would be better spent on a couple of good additions.

You need to build your whole midfield around Ozil to get the best out of him and that means having players doing the donkey work for him as he will not change and will not tackle. Ozil is a unique player and not comparable to anyone really. He doesn't really fit in to modern football pressing tactics and a lot of modern managers wouldn't have much use for him.

Ozil might seem a better player than Ramsey on the ball and against weaker teams esp but you are ignoring the disruption he causes to the tactics and midfield when we don't have the ball, when he is a complete passenger. Ramsey is also 2 years younger and you can't really take his all time stats as relevant as he was awful for about 3 years after his injury and played out of position for a lot of that time. Ramsey will look a lot better playing under Emery as well imo.
Report roadrunner46 December 4, 2018 11:39 AM GMT
the new manager has his own ideas, like you say ozil might not be a part of his plans going forward, hes going to create a team and a style of play that he wants to see.
Report enpassant December 4, 2018 12:00 PM GMT
It seems either Ozil has to change his game to suit the manager or accept he may only be a squad player ie if he cannot command a starting place he can be a quality player from the bench. Obviously he would be a very expensive sub but that situation is in his hands due to the length of his contract. Ultimately if he is useful to gain winning results that will mitigate most of the problems.
Emery has already earned the right for trust in his decisions. So if he wants rid or keep him, I will accept his judgement.
Report Blackrock December 4, 2018 12:45 PM GMT
Thought the main reason Emery withdrew Ramseys contract offer was AR didn't want the number 10 role? He preferred to play deeper but Emery said we are well stocked in that position.

Goals/Assists per minute is a lot more accurate than goals per game, you can come on in injury time and that's 1 game, a bit different to playing 90 minutes, Wenger played Ozil centrally and Ramsey on the right side of attack many times so can't really compare fairly.

It's just as silly comparing goal numbers between the two as well. Ozil has never been a goalscorer and never been sought after for his goals. He is an assist merchant and one of the best in the world at it. He has never scored more than 9 league goals in any season for any of his clubs, yet has been considered a marquee player for club and country his entire career. I'd expect Ramsey to score as many as him if not more playing deeper.

It's pointless comparing the two, they are completely different players with different qualities and play in different positions. Playing off Giroud for years hasn't helped Ozil either but if he's not willing to do what the manager wants from him for those wages then get rid now and get some money in and his wages off the bill.

Sorry but Jenko nowhere near good enough. May have no choice if the injury situation doesn't improve.

Jenkinson was bought as a CH. He played there recently and did a very decent job. We are in real need for this game and as they say, needs must. We have certainly given more chances to worse CH's than him and an added bonus in him playing there would be his height. He MUST come into Emery's thinking as Monreal and Koscielny are major risks (of breaking down)if they start. That said I'm fairly sure he will go with a Monreal/Lichsteiner/Koscielny mix of some sort but to not consider Jenkinson imo, would be a mistake.

Jenko is too light weight, imo, to play centre half.

We may get to see in the next few days.
