Except they're not bothering to target the correct profile of player in that position and bringing in any of their current targets is going to be a complete waste of money

So untrue, Saka held together because he's young and lucky. Ended so many games injured. Pepe was mostly crap in his cameos last season and Martinelli only performs in streaks. The squad is crying out for more wide players.
>>
>>121459680
>we need to prioritise a top CM/CDM
Honestly by the sounds of it, it's not happening. Currently haggling over 5 million for Tielemans while targeting no one else. Meaning we are OK with Xhaka, or we will play Fabio or Saka there.

Vieira and Odegaard can play RW. I don't really understand why Arteta didn't rotate Odegaard there, rest Saka and then play ESR at 10 with Martinelli at LW.
With Vieira in the team now there's no excuse for Saka not to be rested when needed.
>>
>>121462427
Probably because Saka was so important to the team. When Saka had an off-day the attack was non-existent. When he played decently or well the attack worked the same.

Martinelli is not consistent enough to be a starter for a top team, just like Nketiah but he also lacks quality overall. These two positions are still the biggest weakness in the club. Midfield is fine. Xhaka and Partey started only 14 games together last season (in the league). If they could be less injured (which they should) we will be fine

In the games he played as a centre-forward for City last season, he averaged a goal every 147 minutes (all competitions). That's 0.61 goals every 90 mins. Here's the goals per 90 for the top scorers in the league last season for comparison:
>Salah 0.75 (not a centre-forward)
>Son 0.68 (not a centre-forward)
>Ronaldo 0.66
>Kane 0.47
>Mane 0.51
>De Bruyne 0.61
>Vardy 0.75
>Jota 0.56
>Zaha 0.46
>Sterling 0.55
Here's the goals per 90 of the strikers Arsenal fielded in the league last season for comparison too:
>Nketiah 0.56
>Aubameyang 0.34
>Lacazette 0.2
I guess the analytics guys are gambling on him being able to bring that kind of goalscoring form to us if we start him week-in, week-out as a centre-forward. They'll have crunched the numbers and come to the conclusion he could get around 20 league goals for us if we give him 3000 minutes. That would be a big upgrade on the 13 goals we got off Auba, Laca and Nketiah combined. I don't know if it'll work out or not - my knowledge of non-Arsenal players is always very superficial - but that seems to be the thinking.

>>121466477
there's also the element that he has scored a lot less than his xG would suggest. the default assumption for stats guys is actually he will score more in line with his xG in the future (rather than him being a poor finisher). the last 5 seasons he had 58xg compared to 51 goals. he has averaged 0.6npxg per 90 over that time (not filtering for position).

Stats fags are the nonces of sport
>>
>>121466673
Take out his penalties and it's 0.1 goals per 90. He had an unbelievably bad season.

Any arsenal fan excited about Jesus is the most deluded fool one can imagine.

Arsenal's glaring problem (besides the manager) last season was goals. Lacazette was never the goal scorer he was in France, putting up abysmal numbers here. Now compare that to Gabriel Jesus, who had service from KDB, Bernardo Silva, Sterling, Mahrez etc. A striker who didn't score a goal at the World Cup for Brazil, when shitters like Fred did. Its clear he doesn't want to be a striker , he's more content on the wings. He doesn't have the hunger or the greediness necessary to score 20-30 goals, let alone lead an Arsenal team from the front. Think about this, this Arsenal team will be the worse team Gabriel Jesus has played in since leaving Brazil. He is constantly surrounded by world class players. Will moving to a smaller pond allow him to shine? We'll see... But he had the chance to supplant himself as Man City's number 9 after Aguero left and he never took it. As soon as Haaland rumours started to spread he fucked off. Weak Mentality. Same as Odegaard at Real Madrid. These players will never bring the club back to even being a consistent top 4 club, let its past glories.

Ask yourself, what attributes does Gabriel Jesus have over Nketiah? They are the exact same build, average short, quick, high pressing forward. Gabriel Jesus can dribble better, whoopty-doo. That's not the 25 goals extra you need to get top 4 . If I'm being honest, I back Eddie to score more than Jesus (atleast per game) just because he is more greedy for goals.

This also demonstrates Arteta's tactical ineptitude and Edu's resourcelessness . How can bringing on Nketiah for Jesus change the game or even both of them at once. And another shitty Brazilian from a premier league club...wow

Arsenal are a mess

Since moving to Cape Town I watched one preseason game when Porto and CP (Pardew as the manager) played against Ajax. But since Ajax changed to spurs I guess I’ll have to be a city supporter Kek. Shame there was a rugby tour with like two teams who support CP and they were singing and chanting and then later in the tour the one kid broke his neck or something. I sommer feel bad now.

For long-term free agent Yaya Sanogo, his career wasn't meant to end up the way it has. Next year marks a decade since a period that promised so much.

In 2013, the French striker was nominated for the European Golden Boy award, the same year that saw him win the Under-20 World Cup with France and secure a dream move to Arsenal.

Now 29 and the peak of his football years moving swiftly behind him, Sanogo has been without a club for the past 12 months, ever since his six-month stint at Championship club Huddersfield Town came to an end.

Three teams in Scotland have registered interest in him this summer, according to the Frenchman, along with various clubs in Switzerland and France.

"I hope to find a club quickly, that would make me happy," he says. "I need to find the joy of the pitch again, the taste of it."

The most ideal scenario was offloading Nketiah in January with a buy back clause and starting fresh this season. Richarlison as the main number 9 would be incredible. Data Nonces will tell that he doesn't score enough or his attitude is poor but if you actually watch him play you can see he has the latent potential to score 30+ goals in a season, similar to how Van Persie was. Any top level manager could unlock him easily and will channel his aggression to make him into a deadly striker. He has great aerial ability, fantastic link up and can operate anywhere across the front line. I think that him and saka would form a brillant partnership as well. I would also bring in Dzeko as a back up target man striker and to add much needed experience and character to this bland team.

Both of team together easily adds 30 goals to Arsenal, but Arsenal Fans turn their noses at Richarlison because of his "attitude problems", again showing how Arteta has poisoned your minds thinking every footballer needs to be quiet and just obey him and anyone with a voice is poison

The Dzeko part though, I'd rather bring back Giroud.

Lad he plays for Everton. Only when the spotlight or the pressure is on that he performs. He craves a move for a big club just like Zaha. Difference is Richarlison is about to hit his prime. Carlo Ancelotti described him as one of the best strikers in europe and said he should be aiming for 30 goals a season minimum, saying if Drogba can get 29 he could get 30. And that's the difference the manager makes to these players. Which is why our recruitment is so bad and why Arteta seems to fall out with everyone. Its because he can't handle these sort of players with personalities and rather bring in weak minded shitters who will mindlessly obey and make him look great

> seemed to go missing in a lot of important games.

Did you see the Leeds attack this year? They had pretty much nothing. Not hard for teams to nullify Raph when they had no one else to worry about. He scored a lot of important goals in big games also, you're talking nonsense. Out of the games where Leeds scored points, only 1 of his goals (to go 1-0 up v Watford) wasn't a direct game winner or game equalizing goal. His goals this season won them between 12-15 points. Ie. they would have been relegated without him.

Vieira - 30m
Jesus - 45m
Martinez - 30m
Tielemans - 25m
Raphina - 65m

Appreciate Kroenke's putting money in but is there an FFP thing to think about? Who's going out?

Being very optimistic could get maybe 30m between Bellerin, Torreira and Xhaka (if Tielemans is coming in). 20m for Pepe, 5m maybe for AMN.

That's still maybe 150m net spend two seasons in a row. And if Raphinha comes and Saka signs da ting then I'd guess the wage bill isn't getting trimmed so much.

Meanwhile the other top 6 teams seem to be doing worse to varying degrees. Guess it's early days in the window.

compared to nketiah he's better at everything other than poaching. compared to lacazette he's better at everything, same with late period auba.

It feels like people are suffering from short term memory loss of some kind - last season auba and laca contributed nothing (some games auba actually managed to cost us goals somehow). comparisons to peak auba are just stupid because >we are not replacing peak auba, we are replacing basically a training cone.
>>
>>121498793
Laca was connecting very well with the rest of the attack for a few months. When Auba left no one missed him because Lacazette played well (except he didn't score goals). Then he just stopped playing well (a few games before Nketiah became permanent starter). To say Laca contributed nothing is just straight up lies and cope.

It was Pepe that got 4 goals in the last two matches, not Jesus. Jesus scored those 4 in one, scored another in his next match, and then did got nothing for the next 3 games where he played 240 odd minutes. He had 7 shots in those minutes and had one on target.

You mean except the ones who aren't?
How much did Aubameyang cost you? A small amount more than Jesus obviously, except Aubameyang was more than twice the player Jesus is.
How much did Liverpool pay for Salah and Mane?

Literally all you have to do is be smart. 50m for Gabriel Jesus simply isn't smart.

I know. He had decent form and connected well with the rest of the attack around December-February and then he stopped doing that and got benched by Nketiah for the rest of the season. I was simply arguing with the previous anon who said Laca didn't contribute at all the whole season.

He wasn't very useful. He never got any good passing going on with other City players and when he did play as a target man his passing was off (too loose or behind the running player so he had to stop and lose momentum). He also tried to shoot for goal in stupid angles instead of making the obvious pass to another player with a better chance. This is a problem at Arsenal as well (Nketiah do it all the time).

He did keep possession pretty well. He didn't lose the ball except when he tried to shoot or pass it to a teammate. If his decision making becomes better he would be a decent striker.

Tomi ------ White ---- Gabriel/Saliba ---- Tierney
-------------------Partey
---------------------------------------Xhaka
-------------Ode
-----Saka-------------G. Jesus--------Martinelli

Not really much of an improved team even with Fabio adding depth. Clearly we need a more elite-level number 8 to replace Xhaka and make that midfield look frightening. Also lmao Jesus' interview where he's admitting he rather play wide is circling out.

But one thing I will say that /arse/ hasn't talked about is Jesus' workrate and pressing which is ridiculously good. He will probably gangrape press a lot of players and create a ton of chances from presses
>>
Okay so the G. Jesus interview where Jesus says that he prefers to play out wide that has been circling for a while was 4 years ago when Jesus was 21 years old. As a striker he’s played 78 games for city and scored 46 goals, almost one goal every two games.

Why the fuck would you play Odegaard as an 8 who covers for leftback like Xhaka does in Farteta's system
Fabio would rotate with Ode

What is wrong with you. Sad thing is I know people would genuinely think Ode playing Xhaka's role is a good idea with some tortured argument involving Ode's great work rate.
>>

Then Saka will play there. I'd play odour as an 8 because we need him and another creative player in midfield.

The club looking at Martinez makes sense if they're looking for a defensive fullback on the left, this would make space to create more centrally.

The 8 on the left feels more like a bandaid than an intended tactic but maybe not.

Wtf. It's obviously something Arteta uses for Tierney create space for Martinelli. Tierney overlaps and drags a defender out, giving Martinelli more space to run

You're right but it's simply not that effective, most of the time this strategy leads into a cross to no one. It was good when Auba was still firing but Martinelli can't carry games the same way

>Fofana is regarded as one of the best footballers in Ligue 1 and finished comfortably in L’Equipe’s Top 10 players of the 2021/22 season, based on their ratings given on a weekly basis. In addition, he was named in the Ligue 1 Team of the Season and won the Prix Marc-Vivien Foe, which is awarded to the best African player in France.

>Although he is considered to be a box-to-box player, it is his attacking qualities that are often to the fore. He dribbles well, possesses an excellent long-range shot and is also a significant threat from set pieces. Fofana did not rate well in terms of his passing last season, but given the direct nature of Lens’ attacking play, this was not such a big issue for them.

>Indeed, it was the cut-and-thrust nature of his play from the midfield that made him such an exciting player to watch. He would often be found around the opponents’ penalty area, supporting his forward players, and it was in these situations that he excelled.

>Moreover, he played virtually every minute of the season for Lens, speaking volumes about his durability.

>The difference between Fofana and a player like Aurelien Tchouameni, who recently left Monaco to move to Real Madrid for €100m, is that he is not as strong defensively. Fofana does not rate well in terms of his ball recovery or pressing.

>Indeed, Arsenal could not sign him as an alternative to Youri Tielemans, for example. He does not control the play but tends to barrel through it, bringing a tempo of his own to a match.

>He has to be given a very specific job in the midfield, but given the freedom to attack, he could be a very potent player for a club like Arsenal or Newcastle.

Yeah, but Gervinho could actually dribble and run and not get gassed after 20 minutes.

He'd look great with the ball at his feet running down the outside. But then would come the time he'd need to shoot or cross. That's when he'd spill his spaghetti and hit the ball out for a throw-in.

Thanks for sharing, dear

Think Romano said something about Gil and Nuno being linked to OM. Haven’t heard anything about Saliba
>>
>>121531671
Also try to stay with 11 players. I mean the referees should let us play with 12 because of all the shit they have been given us the past seasons but I don't think it is going to happen.

bros... how could this happen?

how could vlahovic not even want to consider us?

CRABS OUT BOYS WE MADE A SIGNING

Shit team

Is this arsenals big striker signing? How will you react when you realise Jesus couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn door?
>>
>>121532425
shop of course and a bad one at that, look at the shirt on the right side.

Ten times better than NShitiah, Lacashit, and last-two-years-Aubamashit
>>
>>121533139
Also about 10 times worse and less exciting than Vlahovic.
>>
>>121533262
He didn't want to come, though, so upwards and onwards, innit.
Also Vlahovic had 9 goals in 21 appearances for Juve. That's not very impressive
>>
>>121533034
If anything, the Jesus is fake (pun intended).
Pasted over a real photo of an unnamed Arsenal jersey.

>Also Vlahovic had 9 goals in 21 appearances for Juve
Embarrassing cope. He joined in January and went from attacking Fiorentina to defensive Allegri Juventus.
Anyone can see from watching him that he's an outstanding talent and one of the most exciting strikers in the world right now. He would easily be Arsenal's best player right now and it wouldn't even be close.

>implying Juventus doesn't create more chances than Fiorentina

>>121533371
Yeah you're definitely a brainlet who doesn't understand football very well.

>tf

>>
>>121533397
>he doesn't score a lot because the opposition is trying REALLY hard
holy cope
>>121533399
not an argument. See how many chances he had per game for Juve vs. the service he had at Fiorentina.
All I'm saying is that 9 goals in 21 isn't that impressive.
>>
>yfw Jesus scores more next season that Haaland, vlahovic etc.
>>
>>121533454
I already filled the "Edu apologies" flysheet for this case.
>>
>>121533446
and i'm correctly labeling you a brainlet. he's a young player and transferred to a club with a very different playing style in the middle of a season. again, anyone with a football IQ can very clearly see he has all the attributes expected of a world class player, and would take him in a heartbeat over someone like gabriel jesus.
>>
>>121533518
He didn't want to come, so why do you keep persisting in saying that? What's the point? Kevin de Bruyne doesn't want to play for Arsenal either, but he'd be a nice addition. who gives a shit
>>
>>121533574
>so why do you keep persisting in saying that?
Only because you persisted with the brainlet cope of "w-well he's only kicked 9 goals in 21 appearances for juventus!"
>>
>>121533624
Yeah, that's not very impressive
>>
>>121533669
thank you for further proving you're a football-illiterate brainlet :)
>>
>>121533695
Okay, you're right. 9 goals in 21 games for what is on paper the best team in the league is actually very impressive.
>>
>>121533728
>for what is on paper the best team in the league
Doubling down on your stupidity i see.
>>
I don’t want to jinx it, but it feels like >we could actually win the Europa League this time.
