    You have won quite a lot lately. Overachieving in the cups but underachieving in the league.

    I think most fans would have been satisfied with cup and CL qualification but your fans are particularly spoilt.

    There is no doubt there was very little to complain about at the start of the 2000s, but these days doubles are harder to come by, and if you are expecting a return to that level of success, no matter what team you support, I suspect you are going to be disappointed a lot.

    Only twice in the history of the club have we really dominated, Just before WW2 and then just before and after Wenger arrived. I remember the double in 1971, but it was very brief glory, and truth be told, there were a lot of ugly victories in that double. A year in which you finish with a trophy, any trophy, is a good year. Even an FA cup should really keep the fans happy.

    Soo since Sanchez left for Utd..

    1.There have been multiple reports that he is a premadonna and a negative influence in the dressing room.
    2. He missed a sheduled drug test.
    3. He has now been given a suspended 16-month jail sentence in Spain after pleading guilty to tax fraud while playing for Barcelona.

    <laugh> - HA

    calm down son. The first is all hear say (think someone posted a fake walcott quote).

    The second was because Arsenal didn't tell him about it. Arsene even took the blame.

    The third one is all his fault though

    Rumours are that Wilshere is on the verge of signing a new contract.

    Not too bothered what happens with Xhaka, Elneny etc.. But we have to keep Jack.

    Agreed, I hope he signs a new contract. When he is fit he's a really useful player to have and fills a home grown spot.

    Rumours he's being offered less money. Would be interesting to see what he does in response to that. To be honest, he can't grumble as he's hardly featured for us. He still has A LOT to prove and show he is Arsenal standard. Just because he's English and called Jack Wilshere shouldn't automatically qualify you. He should be made to prove it like all the others.

    So you swapped one AM for a worse one and upgraded your striker to a similar one and nothing has changed. Didn't see that coming.

    Looks like Lacazette is out for six weeks with a knee injury.

    Oh well at least we have Giroud as cover.. Oh wait.

    Looks like it'll be Auba and Welbeck as our main CFs. Pray Auba doesn't get injured and Welbecks has been iffy recently. For the past year, we've lost 3 strikers.

    Credit due then to Wenger for buying Aubameyang as cover.

    Credit to Mislintat for pushing and leading on this transfer. Without him it wouldn't have happened. He discovered both Auba and Mkhi and brought them to Dortmund so no surprise he wanted them at Arsenal.

    It will be disappointing if Aubameyang doesn't end up being an upgrade on Giroud

    I was thinking more on Lacazette. Who's this Giroud fella?

    This isn’t good...we are left with only Danny welbeck as a recognized striker in the Europa league now.
