Arsenal already did their job by beating us in the semi-final last week. They could end up with a trophy, and we may not.

And we could end up with 2 trophies, and they may not. Don't understand this argument.

They are in the final. One more game for them. We are not in our competitions yet. Not comparable.

Yeah, being beaten to a trophy by fucking Arsenal stings no matter what cup it is. Adding that they beat us in the final last season and in community shield. Fuck em.

This season in the PL is already been done with them catching us up, but next season I expect Arsenal to put a tougher challenge.

I used to believe that at some point, Arsenal will become a force again under Wenger because they surely can't be stuck in mediocrity for so long? Turns that I was wrong because they are still stuck in mediocrity. Unless they sack Wenger and bring in a new manager, I'm sure next season will be the same story for Arsenal again - will look good in matches here and there but ultimately suffer failure over the course of the season.

And even if Arsenal can't catch us this season, Spuds still can. And we want to avoid CL qualification rounds next season.

That won't be a concern. Each of the first 4 nations in the UEFA Country Coefficient get 4 automatic spots into the group stage and England currently sit 2nd in that ranking. So, even if we finish 4th, we'll still go straight into the group stage.

Now, why, Why, WHY, WHHHHHYYYYYYYY are people saying Morata needs Dzeko's competition.

I follow Morata since his debut under Mourinho a thousand years ago, he usually has ups and downs and the shooter for his downs has always, 100%, ever been down to one of two things: heartbreak and confidence.

The personal problems often led to confidence issues.

Now unless you're giving up already on a £70m player who's still quite young and has four more years with us, who's struggling to find form, is lacking confidence and also struggling to adapt to a completely different league and weather, it makes no sense to bring someone that will give him a run for his money. With competition he will drown deeper.

He needs to be babysat right now and as much as I hate this and roll my eyes, this IS quite common with Millennials in their new jobs.

Football players tend to be different, but Morata is the poster child for this generation regular guy getting in the market

We will have to be patient, but I think with time, he'll do good for us. Until them he needs support to build his confidence on, be a bit pampered and that stuff. He will get over the confidence issue eventually but it will pop up a few more times. But he will adapt to English football and as he grows older and become more mature he will also be less prone to this kind of problem (confidence and personal problems affecting his job).

We will have to be patient with this one, but I think it'll pay off, but the last thing he needs right now is someone who could pose a threat to him

 

 

So, are you ok with Giroud signing? At Alvaro's time at Juventus, sometimes Llorente and Mandžukić were enough to displace him, both inferior players to Giroud IMO. I agree that Džeko might be a bit too much, because Alvaro doesn't seem confident, but Giroud should be just fine. I think good back-up striker could ease the burden on Alvaro's back, and when he'll play he'd know that goals aren't only for him to score, that there are others to carry the burden if he fucks up. Unlike situation from last half a season, when his competition and burden-sharer was only Michy.

And you say you followed Morata since forever. Can you tell us why didn't he play more at Juventus?

Think he's a decent signing, especially for 15m. Can come in instantly and do a job, wont take time to settle/get used to a new league etc. He can play CL too. He should have been starting every week for the goons ahead of Lacazette.

 After the names we've been linked with, we could do a lot worse.,,but we could also do a lot better
