Ah ok. Problem is Cahill and all the other options have come up short so we will leak goals anyway, Stones may benefit from the expirence of playing.

Don't worry Mitsunari about the Arsenal fans revolting against Wenger. Those that complain to you online like myself, in person, the Arsenal supporters groups, bloggers, fans booing or hosting placards, we are all just a tiny sect of people engaged in an evil conspiracy against the heroic Wenger.

It is all the Lizard Council of the Illumanti's fault basically. Wenger has to go for his recent comments

Oh yes, those Reptilian swines have a lot to answer for...

Well, my Sky Blues finished 8th, a mere 5 points off the playoffs. If only, IF ONLY, they hadn't capitulated from Christmas until March, gahhh...oh well, in Mowbray we trust. Play Up Sky Blues, next season we'll smash the lot of 'em. :mrgreen:

Doesn't Mowbry have a tendency to start season well then falter off?

2nd but somehow doesn't quite feel deserved. I have enjoyed last day 4th place snatchings from Spurs but this one doesn't feel earnt for whatever reason

Aye, he does, and true to the pattern we blazed to 1st place by November and dramatically crumbled until the last 5 games of the season. Mowbray is the epitome of a manager without a 'Plan B', owing for injuries, tactical suppression and any team with a defensive mentality. At times, we were unstoppable, but thereafter we were shockingly clueless.

Well, deserved or not, 2nd place is still a remarkable achievement - if Leicester hadn't won the league, somehow, perhaps it would have been Arsenal's title.

Nothing in this season suggests we would have won the title :wink: If Leicester didn't win title, Spurs were best placed to take it, they just tailed off after failing to win the title.

Only 3 centrebacks Hodgson? Brave move.

If you had, Wenger would be sticking around until a time when he'd have to be wheeled out to the dugout on match days. :mrgreen:

I'd wait for Finny on the subject of England, I'm a Welshman. :wink:

I presume that Dier is CB no.4, not overly keen on that is he should be one of our first names on the team sheet as a CDM. Can see why he didn't want to take Jagielka though!

Not keen on Wilshere or Delph going either. I don't mind Rashford being in the 26 as long as he doesn't make the 23 as some experience training with the full team might be good for him but he should go with the u21s for the actual tournament.

I enjoyed St Toteringham day as it made up for a fairly disapointing season overall. What do you think of our supposed signing of Xhaka?

Mittens do you wanna hang on to Mowbray or would you like to see a new manager? Also how are you feeling about the Euro's as a Welshman?

Agree with much of Sun Fin's comments

What do you think of our supposed signing of Xhaka?


Seen him for Swiss teams down the years, usually the leader in their midfield. Fine range of passing, energetic, good tackler, fine reading of the game but I am concerned by his disciplinary record on the pitch.

Will he play in a holding role alongside Coquelin or Elneny do you think Dong? A leader with a bit of an attitude is something Arsenal have been lacking. I hope he doesn't get sent off every 5 games but hopefully he'll bring a bit of fire to the squad.
