So it seems we are starting to also look at midfielders to bolster our squad…We got F. Vieira who is clearly one that needs a bit of time to settle given his young age and lack of EPL experience. But a few names are resurfacing more relentlessly now:
- Tielemans – a good eye for a pass, a decent ability to work in midfield to get the ball back, a good ability to drive the ball forward and a good shot as well. Could go missing in games and also prone to injuries…
- Milinko-Savic – a hard working midfielder with a very good shot. An improved Xhaka going forward but suffers from same lack of pace.
- Paqueta – a very good attacking minded midfielder. Excellent dribbling and shots and ability to get in the box.
Out of the 3, I d take Tielemans but still think we can get better players…
Why is thomas partey left out for us preseason tour
Thomas had some legal issues it should be sorted soon, he probably training on his own in colney
I say paqueta RC u forget we are a Brazilian team
Paqueta is like ESR or Ode…He is very good but then let us sell ESR…and I don’t thing we want to do that so keep ESR and let Paqueta go to Newcastle…
We need to find a player at DM/CM…
Never saw paqueta play but isn’t he a box to box
eSR is a CAM
No, Fred, Paquito is as AM as it gets.
Even you may argue that ESR is half LW half CAM, but Lucas is a downright attacking midfielder.
A good one to be fair, but I think we are over-equipped with AMs in the squad: besides Odegaard, ESR and Vieira, we have Hutchinson and Flores waiting for crumbles of minutes.
Sorry Richard and Fred
Thomas Party Partey is going to America.
But will he get on the plane?
We need this guy to play for us and be healthy this year or it will be another season of top 5-8…..
Watch Milinkovic Savic for Lazio, and enjoy a midfield player, he makes football easy, he dribles, passes well, defends, Assists and scores good goals, he’s an all in one player and get achieves that in the difficult Italian league that’s what we want in Arsenal.
Partey gives us that but is injury prone
I think muliko Savic will be the best option for the gunners
Savic and Paqueta sound exotic but Tielemans is Premier League tested, he knows the English game and he’s settled in England so I’m inclined to lean towards the Belgian, plus I like their chocolate and beer.
Mike Dean wants to be remembered by the fans as “an entertainer”.
I will remember you Mr Dean, alright, as the most one eyed, arrogant, centre stage chasing b****** in the black, that ever walked a football field.
LBG, you should print it on a board and sell alongside Arsenal jerseys. 🙂
If we sign Paqueta then I’m going to start calling us Arzenil in a nod to the fact we have signed most of South America.
Or maybe Brazenil….
We buying all city rejects
Good move if we can get it done…
Parietal would be ideal, arsenal needs some ‘steel’ in midfield
Arsenal 2-0 Everton
Saliba started and looked very tidy, Jesus is outstanding, Walters came on late in 2nd 45, had about 20 minutes, looked very accomplished for a 17 year old.
Any reason tomi didn’t play
Will qe get any type of products from pepe, really was Hopkins he showed his quality in the second
ARSENAL could be missing five first-team players for their opening day clash against Crystal Palace. Tomiyasu & White are doubts while Tierney suffered a recurrence of his knee injury in a friendly earlier this month. Smith Rowe has a muscle problem & Vieira has a bone issue.
What a cheerful man, you are!
Remember the first 3 games don’t count:-)
Get some combination of Zinchencko, Paqueta, Tielmans and Sane and maybe we can start the year samshing!
Player injuries not allowed no problem
Saka coming on and 1 minutes makes more of an impact than pepe whole 60 minutes
