Arsenal, Pt. X: Boom-Xhaka-Laca!

Recommended Posts

Ramsey tweaking his hamstring leading to Arsenal's season collapse is a very poetic way for his Arsenal career to end.

What a job by the front-2 yesterday. 3-1 heading to Spain feels pretty good.

538 odds:
Arsenal has an 80% chance of advancing to final
Arsenal has a 35% chance of winning final
Arsenal has a 28% chance of qualifying for CL through PL

63% chance at CL still, somehow.

Josh Kroenke, at least, has already issued a response to the petition that had started up yesterday and hit 50K signees by noon PST.  It wasn't an outstanding response, but it wasn't a bad one either.  Likely not going to move the needle one way or the other, but it might put a temporary stem on the bleeding that ultimately will only be stopped by a signing or two.

Will be interesting to see. In a couple hours I'm going to an Arsenal-partner event the club is hosting (Arsenal America members were able to reserve a spot on the guest list) at the Ritz in Marina Del Ray, where there's supposed to be some form of Q&A so we'll see what turns up and who all is actually there to answer questions.

Genuinely confused to come to the end of a transfer window and not really have anything to moan about. Have to say massive credit to Raul and the rest of the executive crew, they stared down a fan insurrection this summer and are coming out of it looking like heroes.

It's not to say the team is without flaws - the defense is still frail given it's hard to know how long it'll take for Holding and Bellerin to settle in after long layoffs, and lord knows the inevitable game when we have to start Luiz and Mustafi together in the center of defense is going to look like a slapstick comedy. But this very much looks like a squad that should make top 4 and I don't think Emery has any excuse not to achieve that.
