Other than Aguero, Silva and Zabaleta who from City makes Arsenal's first XI?

Re: English Football 2015/16

I still can't imagine Arsenal winning the league. They could sign messi and my brain wouldn't compute that as potentially happenning.

That said their squad is looking pretty good for a top 3 finish.

Re: English Football 2015/16

A few years ago it was "Arsenal never winning anything ever again"....now "Arsenal not winning the league" things change... we have a good squad, defense is solid. 1-2 signings and we can go for it

---

Also Walcoott!!!!!! the new guy Adelaide with the nice assist

Of course. Should be a great season with the top 4 teams all looking strong

Also, interested in a Hazard vs Sanchez scorepoints bet for something small like $50?

Only if you give me odds. Sanchez is missing the first 4-5games presumably

Oh yeah forgot about that. Dont worry about it then. I assume you don't want Fabregas vs any of your midfielders like last year.

Adelaide definitely not playing like he's 17. Real nice pass on Walcotts run.

Re: English Football 2015/16

City being criminally underrated ITT. Yaya Silva Sterling Aguero are gonna murder so many teams and think they may have another big signing to come late on.

Even if it was only those 3, wouldn't that be enough?!
And there 20 man squad is way better.
Who City take from Arsenal? Pretty sure no one.

Re: English Football 2015/16

also, where did Adelaide come from? Kid is playing great, albeit preseason. Both him and Iwobi look like they belong with the first team.

Pretty sure those are old, I'm on my phone though. I thought we had ~185 last year and Chelsea were like 183. We've also signed giroud/Theo and others to improved deals since

Zolayn, sick troll bro. City won't win the league because they have zero good fb since zabaletta started to suck and maybe half a good cb in kompany since he's been avg for 18 months

We don't need an elite forward to win the league, but then we would need to keep the core healthy like Chelsea did last year and win the close games vs the top 4. Another elite player increases your margins but would help us more in Europe than pl IMO.

Re: English Football 2015/16

Side note, cech looks very solid (SHOCKING HOT TAKE). But has looked more comfortable than I had initially expected. Will be nice to have a GK that won't lose us games and potentially win us a few.

Second the Reine Adelaide hype train. Full arseboom in effect.

Very weary about being paper thin in the DM area. See us being completely ****ed if we lose coq for any extended period. I think that is likely a more pressing matter than a striker. Walcott's really shown some growth in his game and ability to play as a central striker, and welbeck is a mid tier replacement.

I'm hoping this will be ox's breakout year. He's so clearly the reason along with walcott we weren't interested in sterling. Rather us spend that money on DM / Striker.

I think cashy and possibly others pointed out before, but this is the make or break year for the Ox
