Glad we're keeping Eriksen. Reckon we go back in during January for Dybala.

Nah. Ramsey the only loss. Anyone else who has left can go far away. Sooner Xhaka and Ozil (if he doesn’t want to play) go the better also.

Quality over quantity.

Not denying we could be light on at times. But I’m not gonna miss the players that have left.

Reckon Arsenal are shipping too many players out and are leaving themselves a bit thin
Gives some of our youth some real shots to make their mark - we'll see a fair bit of Smith-Rowe, Willock, Nelson, Martinelli and probably Saka now Mkhi is out. In a lot of ways it's another thing Arsenal fans have been crying out for, getting to see our own products get a go.

Something we did 3-4 years ago and have for some reason gone away from.
One of the true benefits of being in the Europa League compared to Champions League was that we could expose academy players. Not many getting a chance now.

I remember Mkhitaryan being a massive buy for United coming off that huge season at BVB. Then he just shat the bed there and at Arsenal.

At least I'm not Bobby Madley
Chicarito to Sevilla officially confirmed now also.

Just never really worked out for him with us, he was never a lone striker, but that's how we used him initially. Be interesting to see how he goes replacing Ben Yidder....

2 year loan that'll see out his contract at Chelsea.

And 1 year for this guy and that'll see out his contract with us too. Cutting down the loan army.

Household names...... ;)

In that case, why didn't you keep a hold of Eddie?

Wouldn't have got the playing time he needs I reckon.

Good that he is getting minutes and experience at Leeds.

Win win for everyone.
Hopefully the form of Tammy Abraham gives clubs confidence to back in their kids a bit more. I feel that blowing huge sums on transfers and wages for os players has caused a disconnect between the fans and their clubs. Only Liverpool and Spurs do this consistently well and it's no surprise that they played off in the Champions League final.
