Something of Nothing, not a lot to discuss by KTB
Well Gooners, I was wrong in my last article about our definite 3rd place finish, we ended up getting 2nd at the expense of Spurs, which I had hoped Newcastle would do us a favour – and boy did they give them a beating!
Anyway that made a few fellow Gooners (incl me) happy about something this season (finishing above spurs) as it was terrible in our eyes. One thing not mentioned a lot is the fact we are in Pot 2 of the group stage draw for The Champions League, so that’s a big boost esp for incoming transfers and possibly having an easier group. Not a lot to discuss as its silly season but other things, in my opinion, need sorted.
Few things also need addressed;
1. Squad Numbers
2. Captain/Vice Captain
Looks like Xhaka is coming, he wants 34, Le Coq is atm so he will have a new number. 9,7,8 are all free for players.
Wilshere needs to give Ozil no10. A few players numbers need reshuffled, Debuchy needs to vacate no2, Hector takes that! Per needs to Vacate no4 for new CB as he will be out of starting 11 this season. Cech needs no1.
NEW CB. 4
NEW ST. 9
NEW LW. 11
Le Coq. 17
Cech is a shout for one or the other, so I would give him vice captaincy of Arsenal. Hes an experienced leader on and off the pitch, but i have always been a fan of a captain in the middle of the pitch who sees the whole game around him. I remember when Fabregas was captain he led by example with his feet & had heart, not like PV4 (we dont have a Viera atm) he was a monster. Cesc ran the show for us & saved us on numerous occasions (v Villa, off bench scores 2, 1 a free kick whilst injured) so my choice is Mesut Ozil. Reasons;
– When he doesnt play we are rubbish
– Hes our record signing, started the new era
– Carried us this season
– Won POTY at the club
– Fan Favourite
– He wants to win everything (ambitious)
– Wants Arsenal to buy WC Players, fans also
He runs every game we play well in and he’s debating over a new contract over what signings come in (ambitious) but these things matter as he is irreplacable at Arsenal. You want an ambitious captain who hates losing and dictates every game. Imagine the motivation he would get with getting his no10, captain and highest paid player ever at Arsenal with a few more stars around him? Hes this generation’s version of Dennis Bergkamp. Build a team around him, Alexis was the start, Xhaka looks set, all we need is a LW and ST and we are a real force!
All this may not matter but all articles now are all about transfers and this seems like something different to discuss!
