    Yes it might end up being another LOL Arsenal thread, but during the 2nd half of last season they started showing positive thigs, even when they lost games (the home loss vs Man City was a good example of that)

    They signed Jesus and Zinchenko; Jesus has been impressive, sure it's preseason, but scoring braces and hat tricks vs Chelsea and Sevilla is not a bad performance at all; he also makes plays for others and his movements off the ball are fantastic.

    Zinchenko is a instant upgrade at the LB spot an he should benefit from more paying time; he can also play MF.

    And Arteta knows them very well from his Man City days.

    Martinelli is a talented player who improves every year; same with Oodegard (who was just named Captain by the way)

    Negatives : Their defense is still a question mark and Xhaka is a walking red card, and they'll need Jesus to stay healthy.

    But so far the Gunners aren't looking so bad; can they compete for top 4? probably not, but nobody picked Leicester to win a le in 2016 either.

    City, Liverpool and Chelsea should finish ahead of them, as well a Tottenham if Conte doesn't lose his locker room - he literally killed his players in pre-season training

    Man United? Too early to tell, their offense in pre-season under their new manager Ten Haag looked really good, but United has been really cursed since Sir Alex left (and it's just the pre-season)

    They can definitely finish top 4, given they choked on their d!cks last season while comfortably in 4th at the end of last season

    Jesus was a good pickup, I personally think they can be better than Chelsea even. We'll see, they're a walking disappointment for 15+ years (and phuck Xhaka)

    Chelsea is currently trying to sign every player just for the sake of signing players, it seems their news ownership is lacking vision

    Every player except Tristiano, who throw himself at them and they still wouldn't accept.

    There was an Arsenal pub I requented when I first started my footy journey. Depression. I dunno how they didn't snag Lewandowski.

    From the Undefeated Season Gunners to this endless retooling.

    I mean in the past before he joined Dortmund.

    Szczęsny joined the year before so they must have seen him.

    Once Thierry Henry left the club for Barcelona, everything went downhill. I think now they have trouble attracting top talent.

    thatís one reason

    ownership had to pay for the new stadium which prevented them from signing top players

    Recent past, I usually dislike their signings. They seem to go so young and just unproven OR 2nd tier establishment player - Aubameyang and Xhaka. I think Wenger stuck with a formula too long and its gonna take a bit to shake that ingrained mentality.
