The players that must leave Arsenal this summer

Players that should leave Arsenal this summer by Mo

I know everyones thoughts are focused on the NLD tomorrow, but I have been thinking a little farther ahead about what Arsenal need to do in the summer. The fans and the media are everyday talking about what players we need to bring in, but very few think about what players we should get rid of. After seeing the Gunners hopeless displays in recent weeks, I have thought about what players we need to move on.

First there are the obvious ones: Arteta, Rosicky and Flamini. Most likely all of these players will leave in the summer when their contracts run out. But since Wenger is the manager i would not be surprised if he decided to give Flamini a contract extension instead of buying a proper DM.

Secondly there are the players that are out on loan: Szczęsny, Debuchy, Sanogo, Akpom, and Jenkinson (there are several others but most them have barely featured in the first team). In my opinion we should keep Ospina as our backup GK and sell Szczęsny on. He is not a world class goalkeeper and I and most fans never feel safe when he is in goal. He is too error-prone for my liking.

Debuchy has disrespected Wenger publicly so he will probably be shipped out in the summer. I personally would feel a lot safer knowing he is our second choice RB instead of Jenkinson who has gone from being one of the better West Ham players last season to playing badly, conceding penalties and losing his place in their team. Sanogo was never Arsenal quality, he is too slow and does not have the ball control or technique to play as a striker in this level. Hopefully our manager has realised that. Akpom is still young and will hopefully get a chance in the squad next season.

Thirdly the players in our first team that I personally want to get rid of. These are the players that I feel do not deserve to put on the red and white, some of them might be controversial and a lot of you will probably disagree with me, but this is my personal opinion.

The first one is Aaron Ramsey. He is now 25, has been in this club for 8 years and besides that one season when he was scoring a lot of goals he has done absolutely nothing in the other seven years. He is not a good dribbler, he always passes sideways or backwards and the few times Ramsey tries any forward passes most of them are misplaced (I have even seen him pass the ball out of the field recently). Aso he is the player that has been dribbled past more than any other in the BPL this season (51 times). He barely scores any goals, but the one thing that really annoys me is how many times he loses the ball in one game. How can he help Le Coq if he is the one creating the problem in the first place? Ramsey runs around like a headless chicken for 90 minutes and people are saying how he runs everywhere, well in my opinion Ramsey would be more beneficial for the club running alongside the linesman than inside the pitch.

Our English players are constantly injured therefore i personally feel like we cannot afford to have all of these players that barely contribute anything during the season in our 25 man squad. Wilshere, Walcott, Welbeck and the Ox are injury prone and i feel that at least one of them has to go in the summer to free up space and wages for incoming players. Welbeck has only been here a short time so he definitely deserves to stay, he has also provided us with some important goals. The Ox is young, he can get past opposing players and create chances out of nothing, so he of course stays. That leaves us with Wilshere and Walcott. Wilshere is injured more than he plays. He is still young and i personally will not give up on him yet. Walcott, on the other hand, has been in this club for 10 years and what has he really achieved? He is never consistent, one game he is great, the next he is horrible. I also don’t feel like he has the abilities necessary to play as a striker. That leaves only his pace which is the only attribute he has, but with teams always parking the bus against us, he barely gets to use that pace. That to me means he is redundant. I feel like its time to give up on him and I hope that players like Akpom or Gnabry can step up or we can buy another Striker/Winger.

To conclude these are the players I feel should leave in the summer. (Btw I love Rosicky but he is 34 and always injured, I will be sad to see him go).

Rosicky, Szczęsny, Arteta, Flamini, Sanogo, Ramsey and Walcott.

I do not want to speculate on incoming players because that would be pure guesswork, but with the new TV deal we should have no problem replacing these players. We will also get back players like Hayden, Jenkinson, Akpom and Gnabry when their loan spells end in the summer, and hopefully some youth players will take the step up like Iwobi has done this season.

    ARSENAL YOU JOKE

  2. reddb10 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    Since 2008 when Gilberto left the club we have not bought in a top DM and have been paying the price since.

  3. sam-afc ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    Why on earth is Coquelin making that tackle there.
    Why is Mertesacker shouting at him saying DON’T make that tackle……

    We’re up against it now

  4. luvdaguns ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    coq should have come off, no way that hot head was not going to make a bad decision, now we have to try to hang on 35″

    1. reddb10 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

      @luvdaguns,
      we all know he should of come off mate, but unfortunately we have nobody on the bench even half decent to take the DM role and our manager is clueless anyway.

  5. ArseOverTit ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    Play players in their correct positions and see what happens!

    World class finish. Messi would have enjoyed that.

    Wellbeck should have made it 2. We could regret that.

    1. vinie2000 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

      ARE YOU KIDDING ME? SPURS IS NOT LETTING THEM ANY SPACE WITH THIR PRESSING AND BECAUSE THE LEFT BACK ARE BOMBING FORWARD SPECIALLY ON THE LEFT WERE RAMSEY LEAVES BELLERIN EXPOSE.ARE YOU WATCHING SAME GAME? GABRIEL GUTS IS WHAT WE NEED TODAY NOT PRETTY WIN.

  6. vinie2000 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    BELLERIN STRUGGLING BECAUSE RAMSEY IS ON THE BLOODY LEFT WHERE ALEXIS IS AND NOT HELPING..WHY HE THINK IS DOING? LACK OF DISCIPLINE EVEN PLAYING ON THE WING. WE NEED CAMPBELL IN THAT PLACE SOON

  7. luvdaguns ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    we cant even cross mid line…. spurs has years of frustration coming out…

  8. arsenal1986 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    Ramsay is the worst player in the midfield right now, Ospina could have done a better job there… so disgusted to see Campbell on bench. Typical Wenger tactics…
    Frankly speaking Ozil has improved a lot, especially he tries to put in a couple of challenges here and there.. And then he passes to Sir Giroud /Walcott, who do nothing

  9. the arsenal messiah ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    the only players I want to see remaining for next season are sanchez ozil cech koscienly monreal bellerin coquelin welbeck campbell chambers iwobi wilshere and cazorla.

    Get rid of the rest.

    1. G-Rude ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

      Get rid of half the squad? You’ve really thought about this haven’t you?

      1. Ks-Gunner ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

        it means that half of the team is not good enough, i think you know it too

  10. arsenalkid1970 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    Players and manager must go. I don’t understand what he is playing at but its all wrong at Arsenal. We won’t get 4th place and that says who will come in to Arsenal? No one because they all want CL football
    AW out

  11. rkw ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    It’s a funny old game esp for the neutral but wenger doesn’t deserve this life line

  12. Ronny331 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    Mert shi*e as usual, arsenal spineless as usual. Who’s doing the organising after coq went off, 2 in 2 minutes is a disgrace. Sanchez is right and per is a disgrace without kos to wipe his ar*email for him. Joke of a team!

  13. luvdaguns ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    its one thing to loose the league to the normal cast of characters, but spurs? we will never hear the end of it…

  14. Ronny331 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    Would it have not been a great idea to replace coquet in with flamini at half time? Here we go again!

  15. rkw ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    I want wenger to leave after this and if he doesn’t he is an insult to this once great club .. And the yank needs to go to,he makes me vomit even more

  20. Lethal Prince 9 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    Ramsey bitches, you wanna let him do some action, put him on the right wing….

    1. vinie2000 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

      LOST IT? HE’S BEEN OUTNUMBER ON THE RIGHT BECAUSE RAMSEY IS ON THE LEFT WHERE HE SHOULD NOT BE AND LAMELA WITH ROSE ARE DOING ONE TWOS

  21. DennisTheMenace ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    its very clear that only one team is out there trying to win… the other is just to mark attendance and collect the week’s paycheck

    1. rkw ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

      Wow didn’t see that coming … Nice from wellbeck he deserves it our best player so far

  22. rkw ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    Wow …i can’t believe the difference in effort and organization … If manager can’t get basics right the rest ain’t worth jack sh@@ …someone will get sent off coz of this

  23. vinie2000 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    LE COQ TRYING TO DO TRICKS WHEN HE SHOULD RELEASE THE BALL QUICK AND THEN GET BOOKED..

  24. DennisTheMenace ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    the way we have played till now i hope that we only lose it marginally… getting routed at the lane would be scandalous

  25. vinie2000 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    WHAT IS GOING ON WITH STICKING WITH RAMSEY? WHAT’S WRONG WITH THIS MAN? WHY NOT CAMPBELL? HE’S WORK RATE IS ONE TO NONE AND HE MOVES HIM TO RIGHT. EVERYTHING IS FINE IN THE LINE UP APART FORM LEAVING JC ON THE BENCH..IF WE LOSE TODAY MUST BE CURTAINS.

  26. ArseOverTit ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    Wengers team today:

    Steve Bould
    Ozil Ramsey Bellerin Giroud
    Wilshere Ramsey dale winton Cher
    Wellbeck
    Walcott

  27. ceezee ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    Reality check on wenger’s capacity in our usual adversity:

    Arsenal will beat Tottenham, Go away to Barca win 1:2 or 2:2 draw and win the next 9 premiership fixtures.

    Will it win us the league? I don’t know

    Personally & Defiantly i still want a major earthquake shake up…….BRITISH BOYS OUT!!!

    1. Disturbance ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

      You don’t believe what you are saying with those results, but I do agree an earthquake is needed. It starts with Wenger though.

      1. galaxygooner ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

        Let talk about that after the Spurs game . On another note ,even the press are beginning to see that Ramsey is the problem in the middle
        From football 365

        Consider the above with the fact that no Premier League player is dribbled past more times per game than the Welshman( Ramsey), and it makes for a damning indictment of his tactical discipline. The desperation to score goals and help in attack is admirable but foolish, something which must be tempered, nurtured and somewhat suppressed if looking to excel in a role which demands restraint, control and authority. It is no wonder Arsenal struggle when the player who should dictate their play is too busy revelling in his own ‘freedom’.

    2. seancali ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

      I hope we can get the win we need badly today…real arsenal please stand up…

      1. sevenitti ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

        We have to put all knowledge of a horrible 2016 form aside and take this match as a finale itself.. We cannot afford to lose! COYG!!!

      2. Disturbance ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

        Look at the squad! The Wenger logic is great: Campbell played well, so I’ll put Ramsey on the wing instead of him. Unbelievable!

  28. blondin ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    must go-mert,arteta,Jack,theo
    all on loan must go as well
    with all that money plus £95mln given to spend get Di Maria and 4-5 more,1-2 for each line,smart and hard working players,don’t have to be exceptional
    also,should give some role in the club to Henry and,possibly,Zidane,since he will be available in the summer

    Bets how this will end?

    A) 4-1
    B) 5-1
    C) 6-1

    We’ve been battered by Liverpool, City, United, Southampton, Everton and Chelsea in the past years. Its only fitting to get battered by Spurs as well.
