No surprises at all from Arsenal. Pretty rubbish all round. Hard to know what Emery's plan is. He hasn't had a fortune to spend, naturally, but he's brought in enough to think there should be some progress. The sloppiness is still there. We can't defend. Playing out from the back has pretty much been a disaster, we're resorting to hoofing it more often than not. We've got injury issues but tough shit. You could argue that City are simply the better team by some distance but they'll have tougher games against bottom half opposition. Arsenal are drifting, there's very little to be excited about in my opinion. All very unfair on Emery at this stage where we're probably still thinking CL is a possibility and we at least need to secure Europa. There's not a lot of wiggle room with budget, players he doesn't want and our modest but crucial ambitions for European football. I would have expected something more though. We're still a rabble.
