    I believe I am speaking for a good number of us when I say all I want is to see that kind of performance in the league before I go all cosy on the manager. That's not too much to ask, is it!?

    Ah okok, I understand. I kind of agree with you. However i think it might be bad for Pepe long term, but at some point you can't play him anymore if he doesnt deliver tbf.

    I watched the latest available training session. It was interesting, especially the last part when they played mini football game.
    To me Özil didn't look 100% fit. He was out of breath in the end more than others. Looked a bit off the pace, especially off the ball.
    Xhaka made the same mistakes in the training as in the real game. His wayward passing was the culprit for at least one easy goal from oppo team. He even tried to pull his teammates shirt from behind in the small pitch:lol:

    Maybe it was a coincidence, but the typical encouragement shouting from Emery always stopped when Özil was controlling the ball:lol:

    I get nervous when everyone around us start dropping points before we play our game.

    I’ve seen Bournemouth play a couple of times this year and even at home they look so open.

    You’d want Auba and Pepe to fill their boots tomorrow and put them to the sword because their will be space.

    Stacey, Ramsdale and Rico look really sus at the back.

    Better not be another lethargic start tomorrow. The crowd and players will have to feed off each other. Chance to go third, but would also be nice to have an overall goal difference not so pitiful.

    Third place if we win tomorrow. Can see Chelsea lose points too. Easiest top 4 race ever, just need to take our chances, need a strong line-up. Win this, Holding, Tierney and Bellerin 100% ready for PL games after the international break and our chances look good.

    on Bellerin, Tierney and Holding…
    They are three different circumstances with the injuries and with the timings. But really now they are very close for us, the closest is maybe Rob Holding. He has played two matches with us and also for the under-23s. And Kieran Tierney is the same. I think Hector Bellerin needs more time to be 100 per cent, but I think all the minutes he played yesterday were very good to achieve a rhythm and above all confidence to play when we need him in future.

    Sounds like Holding and Tierney may be in contention for a starting spot, while it's a little too soon still for Bellerin.

    Tierney - Luiz - Holding - Chambers, perhaps?

    Anything but three points is a disaster. Come on Unai! Take advantage of the chaos around our top 4 rivals.

    No doubt Emery will start 3 DMs in this one, trying to snatch a draw :facepalm:

    Seriously though, we should be scoring atleast 3, hopefully Pepe gets a couple and gets his confidence up.

    Very interesting points.

    Truth be told, it seemed quite a normal training session.

    Makingtrax Arséne Wenger once said "I will miss you"

    Is it too early for a Xmas list?

    Dear Santa, please can I have Chambers and Holding at CB. A midfield with no Xhaka. And Tierney and Bellerin at full back. Oh and kick Pepe up the arse.

    Hoping we're a little more press resistant at the back this match, King and Wilson will thrive other wise, all eyes on Leno's distribution.

    If Emery does not go pragmatic this should be a great frenetic match up which I think would have us over power them, if we do go pragmatic then it's a toss up whether we hand them something from this game or not.

    Same side as vs Manu judging by selection for the EL, depending on scoreline in the 2nd half, Martinelli on for Saka, Willock for Torreira, Nelson for Pepe.

    Ok Bournemouth are a good side but if we are serious about top 4 then we should be winning this comfortably. The midweek display was great but very few of those involved will play today, we have to show that we have 2 great teams, not just a bunch of very talented youngsters. Its down to Emery to get it right, he has the players to beat Bournemouth comfortably so how he plays them will tell us if he's the right man for the job. I think he is but there needs to be improvement, Tierney & Holding will certainly help but who Emery plays in the middle will be key, recently he's been getting that wrong. For me Willock & Guendouzi should both start!
