It’s probably a 3 or 4 window job fixing this and that’s assuming we get the vast majority of it right which seems unlikely that we’ve got almost everything wrong.
New left back, new cover at left back, new centre halves, a genuine play maker, a pacy striker, decent wingers
It’s more a question of what we don’t need.
Pickford Coleman gueye sigurdsson Walcott and tosan. We’ve a 5 a side team and a sub with literally no star quality
We are at the stage where we need to prey that some of the young players come on leaps and bounds and fill some of the many gaps
Not sure I agree. I think the squad is better than you suggest.
Pickford, Coleman and Baines are all secure. I personally would stick with Keane, get him the right partner and just play him week after week to build a proper understanding. I think he's had a rough year, but is a good player and think we will see that in time. Kenny and Holgate are good prospects to develop.
Gana and Tom Davies are secure in the middle, and it would be awesome if we could put a proper playmaker in there next to them. Baningame and Klassen could provide good depth, and I still think we should persist with Klaasen under a proper manager.
In the attacking midfield positions, Gylfi and Walcott are quality, and then we have the chance to develop Vlasic and Lookman (again, hopefully under a better manager who understands their value and potential).
And then Tosun and DCL are good forward options, and we need another genuine first team quality striker to add to that.
I think there's absolutely loads to work with there. And if you signed the right 3/4 players in the obvious positions we need, you'd have a pretty strong squad to build with that could certainly push Arsenal for 6th.
