Hello all.

Just a quick thank you to everyone for the PM's as well as messages on here. They are all truly appreciated.

I'd created a memorial video and collage of pictures which was suggested I post these last few things on here.

It's been a very hard time over the past few months. She passed away 4 weeks ago today.

The party ends for America but we made a good account of ourselves in the competition. Not expecting any great comeback.

Match to be played 7, Jan, 2023.


Thanks Zed but that was the old-style default 'Cup Saturday' date.

It's just been announced as Monday 9th 8:00 pm - which is a typical pain-in-the-arse decision to suit TV!

Cheers DHD. I was wondering about that Jan. date anyway. Wasn't even noted on the AFC calendar even. Anything to suit an MNF TV kickoff.

Without doubt one of the most interesting and exciting WC ever. I know such views don’t suit the media and many people but you know, I don’t care how they feel.

It really isn’t. If you’re old enough to remember the great German/Dutch teams of the 70s, Pele, Socrates, etc. you would understand.

I am talking about across the whole comp. I was actually at the 1982 WC and saw the Argentina, Brazil, Italy group plus semis and final. But across that World Cup there was a lot of dross and not a lot of exciting games beyond Brazil. Other times there is usually a couple of good teams but few exciting groups of games. But this World Cup every group had something and most went to the wire.

Our World Cup ended today but to be still in with a chance at the end made it worthwhile.

I agree it has been a very enjoyable world cup so far with lots of tension, drama, comebacks and upsets by teams not expected to get results. Each fan base has been good at creating some atmosphere in the grounds as well. :9adore-boo:

I don't think 2023 can be compared with the game of the 70s which are completely different for pace, skill and fitness.

If this does lead to a drop off in results one of the annoying things will be rival fans saying ‘I told you you wouldn’t keep up those results’ yeah when you lose one of your most important players that’s going to happen. The revisionism is going to be so loud.

I’m not convinced the club will buy another striker, they invested a lot in Nketiah and I think the target for this window was a wide man and the club may see Martinelli has a No.9 option especially if they get the wide man.

Safe to say that the worst 3 players to pick up an injury for us were Jesus, Partey and Saka

Sign a winger and play martinelli up top. Nketiah has been so average so far this season I just wouldn’t trust the drop off.

It’s so so typical. We can’t catch a break can we

Add Martinelli to that list. His decision-making in the Cameroon game was top-notch. Much more low-key than the flashy Anthony, but vastly more effective. Brazil's XG was 3.14 and I bet almost all of those where either Martinelli's chances or chances he set up. It is also notable that he was effective up and down the pitch, and for the full game.

Saka, Martinelli, and Jesus are such intelligent players and add so much to the team, beyond their individual skill-sets. Where are we going to find another forward (whether a winger or striker) who can match that?

He won’t sign a striker.

Can you see the club spending 50 million quid on a new striker for 3 months then gabby returns and balogun comes back in the summer. I can’t

Nketiah will have to deliver and if it isn’t working you will see some false 9 experiments with Emile Smith Rowe and martinelli being tried there probably

Highlights what Bernard said earlier this season that our striking options are way too weak.

Unless he wants to get a ''proper" centre forward. I don't see it (although Pep going down that road is interesting) and I agree it is far more likely that we'll see another in the winger who can play in the centre type.

And I'm not sure about Martinelli up front. It might work, but a) he's fine where he is and b) its a big responsibility and the consequences of failure are significant.

Australia out of the Cup and Jesus injured. What next ?

There’s a bloke at the World Cup called Giroud. He looks quite good. He certainly seems to know where the goal is. :laughing7:

Saw a Mbapee Martinelli swap mentioned on Facebook last week. Would be great for us if we can include a buy back.

Martinelli's place secured with a deal allegedly already done for Mikayl Mudryk.

Def icing on the cake.

I met Ray Parlour today. He was part of another Arsenal leisure wear promotion which was held in London's glittering west end. He seemed like a really nice bloke. He was meeting and greeting everyone with enthusiasm and made them feel totally at ease. The clothes were decent too, very retro styling from the early 90's.

Giroud in Jan is actually a great shout if there’s a chance. Quick runners around him and central midfielders willing to go beyond him which is crucial for his game.

If we have any chance of getting/trying for Bellingham I’d break the bank for him.
I recall waxing lyrical about him in a debate with Bernard in Bellingham v Rice. Wish he was still with us to see what he thinks of Bellinghams World Cup.

Marcus Thuram is on a free in the summer and can play wide, could be cut price in Jan.

So is Saka’s come to think of it. 3 goals now, and a superb performance.
