GTFI Arsenal :)

A first trophy for Arteta and European footie next year :)

Hopefully means Aubameyang will stay, if he doesnt, hes been brilliant in a poor side and would be going out on a massive high!

London not as blue as someone thought eh

Red Army, Red Army, Red Army!!!!

I think Arteta has had a decent first season with that cup win but it is still a massive rebuild job he's got on especially if he loses Aubameyang in particular. I think it'll take a good couple of seasons but will the club and the fans give him that time

why wouldnt they? current board give too much not too little time to managers if anything, why having got the man they wanted for the job would they get rid of him quickly?

Some clubs go through managers like a dose of salts (Watford a good example) and I am simply asking given the size of the rebuild that the Arsenal squad seems to the neutral to need to compete in the PL, will Arteta get the funds and time to start and finish the job?

and as i said, some clubs isnt Arsenal, have never had that reputation and hopefully never will, why would we suddenly turn into Watford????

funds is a whole different question, he will have to work in pretty tight constraints no doubt, but he will get time for sure

Apart from the glaring areas of concern for our squad depth we still to tie down Auba because of his goals go that's a massive blow. Then obviously the rebuild of our defense plus centre of the park is an issue.

But then there's the keeper dilemma Leno is brilliant but Martinez deserves a starting spot as he has shown all the qualities of a 1st choice keeper.

Congrats to Arsenal, we’ll see you boys in the charity shield!

it has to be said tho that Auba is far too good not to be challenging for the 2 major trophies...

He must keep faith with Martinez. Hes been superb and faultless since the return and he must love the club being there 10 years and shipped out on loan regularly. Would be mo shortage of clubs wanting to sign him now
