  1. Other than the 5 over 21s out on loan any other omissions? I can’t see any.

    I’m a bit annoyed that there is room for 2 new players, 3 if u include that jenkinson, won’t play again this season. Why can’t wenger see what we all can?

  2. What Wenger can or can not see may well not be what the board wishes to address at this stage of season, therefore lack of investment in senior squad, come the end of season, we might see a significant reshuffle in senior squad, especially the home grown part. I start to genuinely doubt the prospects of wilshere, Gibbs, ox, welbeck, unless they overcome their injury woes they should be replaced with the likes of Barkley, Stones(in for mertesacker), Chillwell.

    1. Have to say Alex P, you are right there. The likes of Sanogo, arteta, rosicky, flamini, ospina and Debuchy are sure to move on. I personally would add Mertesacker to that list.

      But the perennially injured like, cazorla, wilshire and Welbeck need to be assessed plus the uninspiring martinez macey jenkinson, chamberlain, Wellington, gibbs and walcott need to be clearly looked at. If we are to move forward as a club, I am not sure our first team squad should be carrying ALL 17 of those players. That is like more than half of our first team squad that is either not good enough, not fit enough or too inconsistent. In some cases it’s all 3!!!

      In the summer I would be looking to add a minimum of 4 (cb, dm, rw, cf) world class over 21 players to this group (Cech, szczesney, Gabriel, koscielny, Monreal, coquelin, elneny, ramsey, Campbell, ozil, alexis, giroud) giving us a decent Base of 16 players. Then choose which 9 (maximum) of the 17 players I previously mentioned I would keep.

      Of the under 21s bellerin, iwobi and chambers would be kept in my first team squad and I would probably give the likes of Huddart, iliev, toral, hayden, akpom, zelalem, gnabry, Crowley, Pleguzuelo, Moore, adelaide and one or two others ample opportunity to be part of the first team squad.
