Video Extra – Highlights from Arsenal’s 8-0 win in Emery’s first game

It’s definitely about time we took another look at Unai Emery’s first ever game as manager of Arsenal, he played two completely different sides in each half but they were both impressive!

Watch out for Aubameyang’s 16 minute hat-trick, our youngsters on show in the first half, and the first appearance of Guendouzi in a cameo in the second half…

    Nice attacking movements from Aubameyang, Maitland-Niles, Nelson and Rowe in the first half

  2. Sue says:

    OT Liverpool made an offer for Allison… if they get him I think their team will be complete ???

    1. kev says:

      Bid has already been accepted according to several sources.
      I also read that he’s chosen Liverpool over Chelsea.

      1. Sue says:

        Probably down to Firmino & Fabinho! Did say there was a private jet from Sardinia (where he was on holiday) heading to Liverpool!

    2. Goonerboy says:

      To be honest, Liverpool has massively upgraded their team and they should be installed as favorites for the title, but remember it took them time before they got here.
      I would be happy if we can clinch top 4, win the EL and the Fa cup in Emery’s debut season, then we can kick on from there…

      1. gotanidea says:

        Yes, Klopp took three seasons just to reshape Liverpool, not winning any major trophy yet

        Therefore as long as Emery can make Arsenal entertaining again, that is enough for this season

        1. OzzieGunner says:

          ?plus competitive, combative “never say die” attitude to show commitment to the Arsenal.

      2. jon fox says:

        You would be happy with top four and two cups? I should damn well hope so too! Anyone who is not should be ashamed of themselves!

      3. RSH says:

        yup, they’re simply further along in the rebuilding process than us. Holding onto AW longer than we should’ve has given them the edge currently.

  3. Goonerboy says:

    Maitland Niles is 100% ready for first team action imo, and should get a lot of chances this season.
    Smith Rowe, looks assured and matured too but we need to see their performance against better teams to really guage them.

    I hope what i saw from Sokratis was a blip, i cant bear getting this wrong again.

    1. kev says:

      Niles should be in the first team if we are going for 4-3-3.He’s deserved his chance to start to me and I know he won’t disappoint.

    2. gotanidea says:

      He would be a good box-to-box CM, if covered by a good DM behind him

      His surging style reminds me of Chamberlain’s

  4. kev says:

    Please to everyone I have not said anywhere that Ramsey has signed a new contract.
    What I have said is that Ramsey has agreed a new contract.This means we have made him an offer he’s happy with and has given us his word that he’ll sign it.Whether he’ll honour his word is another thing.Im saying this so that you’ll understand where Ramsey’s agency is coming from when they say nothing’s been signed.
    I brought this up because it’s one thing to give your word that you’ll sign and leave and another to reject a new contract offer and leave.
    Should in case he doesn’t sign Kovacuc will be his replacement and I’m sure lots of people here will be happy with him.
    Sadly for some of you,all indications point to Ramsey signing and even being offered the captaincy along with a mega pay rise.

    1. naijagunner says:

      Sell Ramsey and bring in kovacic

      1. Break-on-through says:

        If we made the offer and he’s happy with the terms then there’s no need for his word, the offer is in writing and is awaiting a signature. What did he say, I’m late for me art class but I promise I’ll sign it tomorrow.

        1. Break-on-through says:

          They’re negotiating. Emery has told the lot of them that he wants Ramsey here, he likes his ability, and he’s a big part of his plans. Ramsey’s agent is trying to get his client the best possible deal, then weigh up his options, and make a decision. People are confident he’ll sign.

  5. miracle makumba says:

    to sale welbeck and ospina is going to be a welcome development only if theres more signing.

  6. OzzieGunner says:

    Maybe Ospina stays and Ceck returns to Chelsea?
