here's to Lord Emery and the era.

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

Not sure why Monreal is not present but that leaves us with SK as a LB which hasn't proved to be his game.
This is either a 442 or 4231.
Given this side and the form of some of them I would prefer Mikhi to play Ozil's role as he has lost his way of late on the right. So put Auba on the left and play it as a 451. Don't think it will be that way and I don't like the the look of the side but Emery has earned some trust.
Report enpassant April 28, 2019 12:54 PM BST
16 minutes in and the co-commentator says what ought to be done; Auba should be on the left and Mhiki should be in behind Lacca !!!!!! Emery, I'm afraid watched on and on in that first half while our system was exposed again and again and done nothing at all about it. We could have been out of the game already.
The red card is probably a bad one for them as it has forced Emery to play a shape more like the one he should have started with given the team HE picked.

Ozil stays to keep the standards high in training, if nothing else; Mkhit can stroll on.

Keep both Lacazette and Aubameyang, they're both too good to let go and normally one, or both would be injured if you look at previous season's with our squad.

But there is no point in doing any of it if the manager doesn't sort out the organisation of the defence and rid the stupid decisions our defenders make, not clearing the ball and trying to play football when we are under pressure etc etc. From what I've seen of Emery so far, he is another Wenger who concentrates on what we do with the ball not what we do when we don't have it. The defence has been weak for about 13 years and counting. Until he does something in this regard there is no hope for him to get it right.

Jed is right, teams who want to win the PL and CL don't care about the FA cup and haven't done for years, that's the only reason we won it. Valencia away win is not a 'tremendous' result. They are a poor team. More surprising that we actually put in a performance away from home. If we get into the CL we'll be mullered by KO stage teams unless he sorts out the defence. 13 years waiting and counting.

Arsenal have allowed Spurs to take their top 4 CL place without spending money because our owner is an incompetent skinflint who doesn't want to win the big pots. He didn't buy Arsenal to win trophies, his own words. You can start celebrating mediocrity if you want but there's a hell of a lot of work to be done before anything this team does is worth celebrating.

That was back in the day when the FA Cup actually meant something to the big clubs.  Nowadays teams such as Liverpool and Spurs put out weakened teams even when they get to a FA Cup semi-final.  I doubt Liverpool were devastated when Wolves knocked them out in the 4th round.

I'm a Spurs fan, I know you boys don't like to dwell on it but there was a time when we were the FA Cup team. I was 14 when we beat Man City in 1981, I can still remember both games like they were yesterday, and similar with all the finals from 1973 onwards - it was THE day of the football year, and the whole day would revolve around it.

Three things which none of us can do anything about happened:

The FA devalued their flagship competition to appease Man Utd.

As the Premier League has grown in stature and financial gravity, so the FA Cup has diminished - I could name the Coventry team that beat us in 1987 off the top of my head from 1-11, I couldn't even tell you with any certainty which teams have played in the last few.

And most importantly, we've all got old. It feels to me that to lament the demise of the FA Cup is to lament the loss of one's own innocence. How simple life was then, jumpers for goalposts and let's meet the players in the bus on the way to the ground, FA Cup Question of Sport etc.

In one sense I'm quite envious of people who still feel the magic, like I am with people who find some comfort in religion, but they're sadly all kidding themselves.

Great to see the old gag about the bald men and the comb being wheeled out Jed. I’ve also heard Chelsea-Arsenal being likened to two rats fighting over a courgette in a urinal. Nevertheless, to put it into perspective, it’s a first European Final for us in 13 years, so we are right to see it as a big deal and, in the new manager’s first season, a sign of progress. Obviously, it’s not Europe’s elite competition, but after banging our head against a brick wall in that one for years, we cannot in our current state pretend we are an elite club.

Summer recruitment is going to be fascinating and will reveal the strength of Emery’s character.

Arsenal are demanding UEFA guarantees the safety of Henrikh Mkhitaryan ahead of the Europa Cup final in Baku.

The North London club admit they are "hugely concerned" about the midfielder potentially missing the final against Chelsea because of the continuing tensions between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

The Armenia captain missed the Gunners' earlier fixture in the competition against Qarabag in Baku because of the issue, which has flared once again with the Azerbaijani capital city set to host the final.

Hostility remains between the neighbouring countries over the disputed Nagorno Karabakh region, where a ceasefire was declared in 1994 after fighting erupted several years earlier.

I hope the stadium is half full, only possible way to prevent something like this happening again, awarding a final to a place that is closer to the Mount Everest than the City where both finalists are from! Chances where it was always going to be contested by two teams from western Europe, UEFA have deliberately priced out fans in order to supplement their own greed, I hope there is some kind of FIFA-esque investigation into the goings ons of how much money and who money is being paid to for a place like Baku to be awarded a major showpiece event. Luckily for them it's two big Premier Leauge teams so probably enough neutrals will show up, imagine if it were a Turkish team v a Ukrainian side.

Micky wont be missed much as he's an underwhelming signing from the beginning, he;s gone downhill fast since being in the Bundesliga team of the year and creating the most assists in the whole season!

Heard on the radio that Wenger says he's finding it difficult to get a job.
