    Far too many times to count, but here's too hoping there's been a change in mentality with Lehman coming back and that new fitness guy joining. We give the opposition far too many chances in the beginning of matches in the past coming out like zombies from the walking dead, it also doesn't help when players like Ramsey go gung ho from the start and leave huge gaps for the opposition to exploit.

    That's really all that there is to go on with isn't it? Even with a truncated squad, at home we should have enough within ourselves to beat Leicester if we go about it the right way. But a truly ambitious and ruthless team never leaves it upto chance.

    If we can't beat Leicester at home, whether it's first game or not we don't deserve to win the title (no disrespect to Leicester) and shows we really are turning into Liverpool Mk II. But knowing us we will make hardwork out of Leicester because we are Charity FC

    You can **** off too :lol: Thought there were signs of your posting picking up tbh but the summer hols are clearly going to your head.

    Nothing like laughing at the truth. Sad times.

    Yes, it happens every season but if you go through them one by one . . . . just saying. There's only Ramsey that could possibly be down to over training. And he always breaks down.

    Yes we desperately need a CM and yes we have Shad and Burgess in charge of pre-season fitness.

    Keeping my eye on you mate, cheap posting :rolleyes:

    When our league "challenge" has collapsed by February we'll see what the excuses will be.

    Still kept all the injury prone players, so it's as certain as night follows day that we'll collapse sooner or later.

    If Wenger buys a solid CM to partner Xhaka before the window shuts . .
    that could be a game changer.

    Yes, thats it, zombies. :lol:Very little chance of a sudden change in mentality. And we both know why.....Don't misunderstand, I'd be the happiest person in the world if I was wrong!!

    So with injuries already. It looks like we will be starting with:

    ------------------------Cech
    --------Holding-Mert-Monreal
    Ox-----Elneny------Xhaka---Kolasinac
    ----------Iwobi--------------Welbeck
    -------------------Lacazette

    It looks like we will struggle to get rid of deadwood till very late in the window and we may not be able to get anyone in because of that. Those released will be sent on loans. So we will still be responsible for paying some of their wages.

    All and all, it isn't looking positive especially with contact situations on top of that.

    Great news - don't want to jump the gun but young Reiss seems like the most exciting prospect we've had for a while. Hope he can really make an impact in his breakthrough season.

    Maybe I'm over-positive, but I'm fairly pleased with our squad and how effective it is in the current formation. A top CM would definitely be welcomed, but he will make us super favourites for the PL title as I already see us as one of the solid favourites. Quite a few players are settling well or are on the up, plus two great additions who covered up two obvious weaknesses in last season's squad. For me a top partner for Xhaka in central midfield is the only need, yet I still can see us keep possession and do an effective and secure build up play with the current options even against top PL sides.

    On the other hand, and particularly for a season opener at the Emirates against a fairly good team, with all those memories and doubts possibly playing in the minds of both players and fans, and with f***ing Mike Dean people are entitled to worry. I hope logic will beat history.

    Yeah I was responding to @Makingtrax's comment that Özil's ankle was kicked against Everton.

    Yeah, my bad it was a kick in training. It was Gabriel who got the Everton injury. :mad:

    Now with Ramsey injury, it is even more an urgency. This dude will not last a full season. Not a chance.
