Arsenal finished the Premier League season with a win, beating Burnley 3-1 at Turf Moor thanks to two goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and one from Eddie Nketiah.

It means we end up in 5th place, just a single point behind Sp*rs and two behind Chelsea. It’s hard not to feel the frustration of our poor run in the last few weeks, and no doubt we’ll cover that in more detail on the site over the coming days and weeks.

For today, let’s just focus on this game.

What is going on with Ozil ? Just don’t get why he is not in the squad. Is he tired,injured or can Emery just not be bothered to pick him again.

Our biggest earner is just not a main part of a very average squad. Defies belief.

Unfortunately we are lumbered with the petulant spoilt brat, I just wish a Chinese club would have come in for him.

He wasn’t chosen today so he’s a spoilt brat. Is it his fault that Emery rested him just as he did with Torreira and Sokratis. I think he has still plenty to offer Arsenal

Runcorn Gooner

So all the down voters think he is good for the team ethic after the way he has performed this season?

He has performed well in the latter part of the season and find the hatred of him quite sickening

Mate – if you think Ozil is the biggest issue with many of our players ‘ethic’, the you have a bigger problem that our back 3 or 5 or 4 (I forget which it is these days?)

What is the point of Mesut Ozil? He should go out and buy himself a nice dressing gown, a pipe+slippers, and announce his retirement….

How many more times are you going to post the identical ideas. At least your posts are shorter than Santori’s.

Why pick on Ozil. Neither Torreira or Sokratis were in the squad today.

Captain Khan

Because Ozil is the highest earner and has been poor this season, and tends to go missing (literally) in many of the away and physical games. We have every right to pick on Ozil.

Obama Young

MissIt Ozil doesn’t feel the need to travel up north for matches. He has more important things to do.

In a player ratings, you are talking about Ozil who did not play today. Why?

… And yes I wish he had a better season but that is true of most of the squad.

What can you do. We slate him when he played badly, we slate him when he didn’t play, we slate him even when he played decently. I think you hate ozil rather than his football mate.

Sigh. Good away win, but the previous 4 Orem games are such a wasted opportunity to finish in top 4. Btw, Ozil rested with a sore gooch, allegedly.

Shows how much of a mental issue it is, I think. The pressure was off and we won fairly comfortably… reminds me of so many previous seasons when we fell short in the title race and once top 4 was secured our form returned

This is going to be very unpopular, but how many of those kind of chances has Auba missed this year? He seems to only bury the difficult chances and makes a mess of the easy ones.

Still great first full season in terms of goals, hope he carries this excellent form into the EL final.

Archer

I guarantee you Mo Salah and Kun Aguero miss more sitters than Auba. The only difference is we don’t create as many chances as a team than Liverpool or City.

bshoop333

Actually that’s a statistical fact. Salah had/has the most missed chances in the league…..not sure about sitters specifically tho.

FMills

Every high scorer fluffs their lines a couple of times per game. Remember when we played Cavani and PSG in the CL a few years back?

Spanish Gooner
Spanish Gooner

I’ve criticised Auba too, however it should be considered that since last season: Aguero missed a penalty vs Spurs that would have knocked them out the CL, Salah missed two “big chances” vs Everton that would have won Liverpool the league, Kane missed a 1v1 that would have taken England to the World Cup final, Mbappe missed chances vs United that lead to PSG getting knocked out the CL. All strikers miss chances. The best ones get up again, and score the next three to send their team to European cup finals

Savage
Savage

31 goals in a season. And if you look at his goals per minute ratio, only Aguero is ahead of him. World class.

Mpls

And Augero is the beneficiary of a team that absolutely dominates matches and creates bags of chances.

If only Auba would run around and get stuck in a bit more.
Yes, I’m joking.

Santori

City are a completely different animal.

Pep has really constructed a superb outfit able to outlast the attention of even Liverpool this season.

BUT it comes at cost we probably can’t match.

Still their short passing and the ability of the players on the ball to dribble and find space is simply outstanding.

When face with similar issue in BHA encamped en mass inside their box, City have the players to pick their way through and engage opponents in the dribble or quick passes.

At times it looks like they were taking the other side apart with a game of futsal.

Mahrez a particular grating reminder of the neglect by Mslintat last January in not bringing in the sort of technical quality we needed when opportunity presented itself.

We need a couple of dribbling merchants one at CM and the other on Rwing to at least start to transform our squad.

We play plenty of teams like BHA that will sit deep and counter. NO surprise we struggle to break these teams down on the road with only Iwobi currently able to remotely engaged and pull apart defenses (and Laca of late)

Those simple heads focused on blaming Mustafi for everything will continue to be baffled why we persist in struggling on the road.

goonshow

Oh look chaps – Santa’s improving: he managed to bang the Mahrez, Iwobi AND Mustuffup drums all in one (shortish!) post!

Tony Adams Nose

Anthony Taylor stopped us from finishing 4th not Xhaka. It was never a foul, he got played and that idiot Taylor fell for it.
Got to say, would have been happy with the season if I was offered it at the start, but because they over achieved I ended up with a feeling of what could have been. (4th above the spuds).
Still we have a cup final to go so if he does manage to win that, it will have been a very successful first season for Emery.
Now or the clear out.

Assshavin

Our penalty in that game, was way more dubious.

Spanish Gooner
Spanish Gooner

If that wasn’t a foul, then the penalty we scored that game wasn’t a foul either. Let’s not blame referees for how the league went this year

Santori
Santori

Our penalty WAS soft too.

Taylor was looking to make up for a (typical) error in judgement.

BUT we needed to be more savvy that this would happen.

The call on Granit was very soft but he should have known better that the ref may use ANYTHING as an excuse to address his own poor decision prior.

The other annoying thing is our players (Many guilty) looking for offside decisions during passage of play.

I feel these sort of psychological lack of focus need addressing. Not a difficult fix but these players need to be far more mature.

John Lavery

Steve Bould can address that last issue that you raised, is that what he is there for?

If there’s one thing today’s game confirmed for me, it’s the thought that if we’re not going to get massive investment from Kroenke over the summer, then I want to see many of our older players sitting on the sidelines next year as subs and more academy potential out on the field.

Mpls
Mpls

Willock and Nketia showed tons of potential. Can’t wait to see what Reece Nelson can do with the off and pre season

Santori
Santori

Potential indeed but we cannot rely on that next season.

I’d rather Willock than Elneny but the Egyptian is still the stronger player. Even so, we need more than just diligence from the bench at this point of time. Elneny does not add anything going forward. We lack a player comfortable with ball at feet that can carry the ball up the spine much like Diaby, Viera or Santi could.

Also even with Nelson and Eddie we will do ourselves little favour not to reinforce.

Wing position only has Iwobi who can pull players out of position on the dribble. Mhkiatrayn is better from the middle as a back up to Ozil (in absence of Ramsey, Smith-Rowe an increasing option)

BUT even with Nelson returning, we need a more mature player to rotate. Someone like Ziyech with trickery and experience important.

That goes for up top albeit I don’t feel we need to spend as much for a striker in absence of Welbeck because we have two very mature players in Auba and Laca.

A younger 21-22 r old (preferably with a bit of height) may be useful and we still then have Nketiah also in contention so double redundancy there.

Mutisya

Heh. The bonus rating. Never disappoints

N10

Iwobi really shone for me in the 2nd half, but had a really rough start.
Guendouzi same.
Mikhitaryan, GTFO of our club.

Auba, he is a rockstar, just such a gift to us.
He and Laca are the foundation for us to get back in the the mix for CL success and beyond.

Ozil unsurprisingly ghosting us. Just fucking leave.

Bob
Bob

Ozil: Doesn’t get picked for a game
N10: Critisises him for not picking himself…

Dude, we have a manager for that. Same manager who didn’t start Sokratis, Torriera and Kos.
Probably because, gee I don’t know, Emery doesn’t want them injured for our FUCKING EUROPA LEAGUE FINAL.
Ffs for all the things to get annoyed at Ozil for, not picking himself is not one!

Tribe

Enable wing play and the result is there. Also that made us lively. Who knows what our performances might be if we have two proper wingers.
Onto the next one.

Hard to believe 2-3 seasons ago people were complaining we had too many wingers…..So the logical response was to sell all of our wingers in the same window.

Why didn’t we bring him on v Brighton instead of Guendouzi?

WellArsed

Two thoughts after this game … other than the usual “what might have been” if we’d shown up against either Palace or Brighton.

It’s obvious Özil will be traded this summer – if a half-way decent offer materializes. At this point, I no longer care. He’s been so mediocre since signing his new contract it’s obvious he’s never going to put in the effort we need from him.

Barnes is an absolute shithead. He played like a thug today and deserves to get called out for it. Should have walked in my opinion.

A Different George
A Different George

One more time: A club cannot “trade” or sell a football player under contract if he does not want to go. And he must be paid whether he plays or not.

WellArsed
WellArsed

Well aware of all of that. Perhaps switch to read mode, rather than remain on repeat?

I don’t care what his agent says now. if Özil receives a decent offer he will take it. Another season like this one (at Arsenal) would be a death knell for his career (& legacy).

Blogs – thanks again for these ratings for yet another season.
Just wondering though – any chance of going back to the simple page format where your player ratings and comments load by default?
I know it speaks poorly of my impatience since it’s just a few seconds’ wait till the switch appears – but I am reminded of my fat thumbs every time I have to repeatedly flick the switch.

Do the majority of users just want to look at your ratings and comments (like me), or is there a large number that actually rate the players themselves before looking at your rating?

Oh, and very happy with Auba’s Golden Boot 🙂

We did well considering we played two teenagers in the midfield.. controlled it better than the recent games.. Willock looks good, calm and composed! A loan spell perhaps?

Guendouzi has an iron heart, was clattered throughout still picked himself up and ran the show pretty well 💓

I hate the Burnley ba****** especially Barnes.

you can say “bastards” on here you know.
You can also say “cunt”, as in “John Terry is a cunt”.

Tribe

I would throw Willock in the squad. For example, he is way way better then Elneny and Xhaka. So why not keep him and give him a run of games. Same goes for Eddie, Nelson, Saka. Niles is already growing. I think those 5 youngsters are part of the internal solutions for our problems. I mean, put them aside and on the other Elneny, Lichsteiner, Xhaka, Mkhitarian. Who will you choose?

Magneto

In my view, Willock does not need a loan spell. He just needs to be given the same opportunities that Unai
has given regularly this season to Guendouzi.

Tribe

Can’t agree more!

Santori

Nah not good enough still.

We need better.

All more of the same next season.

Santori
Santori

Willock is still light weight. Not even Elneny at this point.

And Elneny is no where near Granit.

Its the same rubbish about Mavropanos. Again today several naive moments. These players have potential but need to go out on STRONG Loan.

Certainly they should not be relied upon to rotate. We need better if we are going to get close to the teams above us.

Otherwise expect the same rubbish next season.

Tribe
Tribe

Don’t be naive, Santori. You seem to be pretty reasonable man but do you realise that we will not buy more then 2-3 new players and it seems like Emery will pull some of the youngsters (cause plenty are leaving). So the “strong” loan for Willock for example is with us. Take for example Chambers and Nelson. If they remained with us I think we would have a bigger use of them. For me Chambers is still a better option then Mavropanos and Mustafi. Nelson is better then anyone played on the right wing this season. So Mavropanos was a mistake by Emery, he should’ve gone on loan instead of Chambers.

“All more of the same next season” is pretty depressing I would partly agree but the point is, Emery is the coach that needs to sort the team out and I don’t care what he will do. The Kroenke situation is blatantly saying, “Do what you want I ain’t investing”. So? There you go, sell someone – buy someone. If that’s not enough then here are the youngsters see what can you do with them.

I think it’s clear as day. All of us would love to have 200m for transfers and Emery to rebuild the team with that, but it’s not the case. And when we don’t have the budget, why don’t we use the young potential? Is there any other solution, Santori?

Nameless_Gooner

Let’s sell Xhaka & Ozil please

Hank Scoprio
Hank Scoprio

I doubt Ozil will leave. Certainly wouldn’t be averse to selling Xhaka and Elneny to fund a quality Rambo replacement.

Martin
Martin

But then we would need a Xhaka replacement so that makes no sense

Santori
Santori

Makers no sense but these people don’t operate on logic.

If anything today served to illustrate the importance of Granit.

Poor set piece delivery from Mhkitaryan. We also lacked the quick release from deep, Mustafi the only one to provide something in this area (one very decent ball to Auba for a shot at goal from a ballout oof defense)

Goonshow
Goonshow

Errrm… and yet we won 3-1 away! (And yes, wait for it, one of our central defs was again caught ball-watching, wrong side of their striker for the goal). No names mentioned but his initials rhyme was Shkodran Mustafi

Santori
Santori

Yes, like we have an unlimited budget and there isn’t already Cech, Lichsteiner, Ramsey, Welbeck potentially Koscielny out plus Jenkinson and Elneny (should we even find buyers for their prodigious talents)

And we have requirements in CM additional to the 3 players (Granit, Gunedouzi and Torreira), Rwing and Cback.

They want us to have more requirements further diluting our efforts. Very clever thinking.

John Lavery

Santori, we should make an offer for Ake, BHA, and Carey, Plymouth Arg. They will be cheap and good. Fraser BHA will come cheap too. There should be more but those three will be a good start. what do we all think of that?

Martin
Martin

Yes let’s sell Xhaka who has one of the best passing range of any player in the country who has formed a great partnership with Torreira. I also think that Ozil has still plenty to offer as he has been playing well in the latter part of the season

Santori
Santori

The bigger surprise to these people would be why Emery starts Granit ahead of Torreira. There is VERY good reason but they will never figure it out.

Santori
Santori

Its not if Ozil will leave, but who will pay for him?

Who will pay for Mustafi?

We can;t even sell the even more useless Jenkinson (as yourself why Mustafi is preferred to him at Rback) and Elneny.

John Lavery

I don’t like to say that Corporal Jenks is useless, why say that he is not Arsenal class. The boy could play somewhere else and do well. I mean, look at the right back we sold to West Brom, he is doing great now.

Iwobi needs to score goals. People appreciate only goals.
Ozil is criticised a lot, because he is not a great goalscorer, while Ramsey gets away with a lot because he is a goalscorer.

MateKiddleton

Yet Ozil still has more goals in the league this season than Rambo. Love both players anyway

I would like to see Iwobi play more centrally; kind of Ozil / Rambo position. At least as a test. Am I mad?

Knightly

Wenger tried him there occasionally and he really fitted in. Ultimately he will inherit Ozil’s position in the team.

Knightly
Knightly

While goals are good, its a team sport – various individuals bringing in their stuff to make the team better, why should goals alone define the player? If Hleb wasn’t judged by his goalscoring, if Barcelona’s Arthur isn’t judged by goalscoring and if some of the greatest midfielders aren’t judged by their goals tally alone, neither should he.

mrufan
mrufan

since xhaka joined, we havent been top4

Crash Fistfight
Crash Fistfight

Since Aubameyang joined, we haven’t been top 4. See how pointless that is?

Not that I think Xhaka is good enough – he isn’t if we want to do better, because he is so lacking in athleticism – but he’s probably our most creative central midfielder due to his passing range.

Our central midfield was hopeless before he joined – we had to recall Coquelin from a loan deal and move Santi back there to even have a central midfield!

Santori
Santori

1) Leno – Loved the way he bundled over bloody Barnes. Bully the bully. Later held him off on a one on on outside the box. Also a good safe before they (well Barnes) scored.

2) Lichsteiner – He’s hardly been used which makes you wonder why we didn’t just retain Chambers (in his natural position at Rback cover + Cback + DM) instead of spending the 90K. The one thing you can say postitive about Lichsteiner is he’ll get back in the face of …well Barnes…but unfortunately, Mslintat plucked low hanging fruit on a player past his prime.

3) Mustafi – Again, he was not around for the Wolves capitulation (Koscielny-Sokratis were), played well against Leicester and again today several good clearances and one critical block.

Also worthy of note, he is relied on to play the ball over the top and forward from the back a lot (particularly in absence of Granit), one of which found Aubameyang and almost ended in a goal for us.

Plus he is generally decent in the air. Again plenty of clearances today albeit maybe could have got closer for their goal on Barnes but I reckon he felt Elneny had it covered.

4) Mavropanos – Again, not sure what some people are smoking. He has the pre-requisites of a good Cback with his frame but he’s unproven and still naive to positioning. Got caught out badly twice. Will heavily benefit from a STRONG LOAN next season to accelerate his development.

5) Monreal – Makes his fair share of mistakes but also recovers well. Some decent moments going forward. Good lay off to Iwobi for Auba’s second.

6) Elneny – Whilst I don’t think he is what we need in the squad, he was OK today defending with a good block and a couple of timely interventions. One great cross into the box late on which either of Nketiah or Auba could have profited from better. Some decent passes but generally, we need better in the team. Not good enough just to have a back up from the bench of his standard. We need someone to add missing capability going forward as well from deep midfield.

7) Willock – I thought he was industrious and had one great effort. A bit light weight given the bullying tactics largely gone unpunished by the cretin Dean. Again, we need better in midfield even if Willock may add something for the peripheral tournaments.

We lack the player that can carry the ball either through physical strength (Viera), pure finesse of skill (Santi) or a combination of both (Diaby)

Granit gives us important passing range (largely missed today) if he has some weak points tracking players. Torreira has his shortcomings too but adds a bit of bite when need be (Santi he is not beyond stature). Guendouzi is a developing player.

8) Guendouzi – Energetic performance and targeted for obvious and persistent fouling gone unchecked by the twat Dean.

Carried the ball well for us and some good distribution (one to release Auba in second half). But a real struggle today with the physicality even if he used it to bait for fouls.

9) Mhkitaryan – Hit and miss. Some good work at times, one great shot on the swivel but then plenty of misses at other times. He seems to be better from a central role where as a pure winger these days, he doesn’t have the ability as before. Another player brought in by Mslintat who is past his prime.

At best, eh is a back up/alternative to Ozil in the playmaker function. In that, his distribution from set pieces largely disappointing and again illustrates the importance of Granit to the team.

10) Iwobi – Better in the second half with Nketiah pairing up front with Auba affording him a bit more time and space. BUT again targeted as a danger man by Burnley and blatantly fouled. Burnley I suppose want to be the new Stoke (with Crouch and all) but if anything they were more like Stoke lite.

Iwobi’s assist for the goal excellent and he almost repeated it again for Mhkitaryan. He may not shoot with much conviction as yet but a lot of our productive effort comes as no surprise from left side.

11) Auba – Good news for us is he is in red hot form. Still misses too many sitters (The gift from Mhkitaryan for the hat trick spurned). Amazing to think had he put away the chance against BHA, we would be in fourth ahead of Spurs but then again if we had won one of the matches against Wolves or Leicester and still drawn against BHA, we would be over Chelsea even!

Still plenty of room for improvement particularly in hold up play but he is showing for the ball much better in very recent matches rather than waiting for the “service’ to come to him.

And despite the room for improvement, 30+ goals this season golden boot! And he may add more against Chelsea. Very ominous (for others) to think he can improve further (as can Laca)

12) Koscielny – Came in for unfortunate Mavropanos but perhaps just as well. Help to steady the ship better in place of the youngster.

Durability issues will be concern if he is kept too long and into next season. But a great servant to the club and should he step down in the summer, like Cech, Ramsey, hope he does so after helping us pop our cherry in winning a (reasonably) major european trophy.

13) eddie – Good effort by Nketiah. Great to see him snatch the goal at the end. Striker position is not an area I think we need to prioritise effort this summer even if we are losing Welbeck. Albeit we should still add but maybe we don’t have to bring in ready made (on account both senior players are in their prime), instead we should bring a relatively young (21-22yr old) to build for the future, someone with a bit of height preferably. We have Nketiah as well so we have redundancy if so.

Gaffer – Not sure if I am entirely convinced by 4 at the back. Still issues aplenty if Burnley not as strong in exploiting them beyond crude methodology.

Would have liked to see a stronger squad go for a big win (given our tepid effort last 4 matches) but I suppose there is some merit in curtailing potential injuries ahead of our do or die mission shortly due.

Mike Dean – Cunt.

Personally thought Elneny was better than Guendouzi today, very calm in possession when under pressure. That’s all. Thanks for your time.

Hey, what do you guys think about, if we were to pick up a winter or tow either internally or thru the transfer market, about putting Iwobi into CM in the same role as Xhaka. He has the close quarters control and ability to beat people to start the break. Pair him with Torreria and let them have at it.
