I was a little bit deflated and disappointed.”“Coming from Arsene who always played open attacking football, I really wanted the new manager to come in there and tighten things up.”“For the last ten years now – [we’ve been] leaking goals, soft away from home.”“I wanted him to put his new goalkeeper in, work with his back four, have two screening central-midfield players, and keep a clean sheet. It was crying out for it. But I didn’t see that.”“I thought he got a lot of selections wrong. His three best players were his subs [Alexandre Lacazette, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Lucas Torreira]. I don’t know why he didn’t start with them.”Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.Tony Adams was not optimistic about Arsenal’s title-winning chances. He said: “I can’t see it. I don’t know what he’s been doing for the last six weeks.”Adams went to criticise Unai Emery’s indecisiveness in team selection.“He’s been rotating all of his players and giving them all a game. They’ve got some good results but it’s pre-season.“From minute one, I would’ve picked my own goalkeeper, my back four and put the two lads in that I want to screen those, and get a firm base that’s been missing for the last ten years.“You’ve had six weeks of pre-season – go on, get on with it!“Arsenal fans up and down the country all want him to challenge for the title but at the moment we’re nowhere near.”last_img
