To be fair, Wenger also had form on daft captaincy decisions. I think we all remember the glorious reign of William Gallas as skipper.

Absolutely, that was a terrible decision. It was a kick to the teeth of Gilberto Silva. And when he had his little huff, what did Wenger do? Took the armband from him, gave it to Cesc and incredibly Gallas followed this up with his best season in an Arsenal shirt the following year.

I know some have questioned the Pepe signing (whether the money spent or if spent on the right areas) but they also somehow managed to sell Iwobi to Everton for £40m so all things considered Pepe isn't at all a bad signing, an upgrade if anything. Maybe just needs a manager to get the most out of him.

Pepe is doing perfectly fine at the moment, he's just often isolated as he has nobody to pass to in the number 10 position when he beats players. He's only really had 1 stinker against United. In other games he's shown great flashes. Arsenal 'fans' getting on his back obviously never supported Arsenal when Bergkamp and Henry signed. Henry especially was all over the place in the first half of that season

Yep. His crosses on Sunday resulted in both of our goals and he scored two lovely free kicks last week. Prior to that, he's looked lively. Also he didn't have a pre-season and no time to settle into the squad. He's doing fine and will become more influential over the course of the season.

When Arsenal signed Bergkamp, he had a terrible start as well, but unfortunately picked up once everyone started saying he looked like Beavis.

That was fun to watch. Ozil looked good, Martinelli is scoring for fun still, Willock scored a screamer and Mustafi did a funny OG. Not going to lose sleep over a Carabao Cup exit and it was far more entertaining than our league matches. Didn't think Brewster made a great impact but that Curtis Jones looked excellent when he came on.

He shouldnt have been on the piss with them then. One of them was Tom Lawrence. He's from fucking Wrexham. He's a curse. #fuckoffwrexham

The captain shouldnt be on the piss all night with players on the piss and get pissed up into their pissed car. He'd be fit and have a contract if he got a taxi home. 

The videos allegedly of the three of them in that alleged gastropub are pretty allegedly fucking damning. But all 3 should have been released. *checks £20 note for powder*

Law of Football in a nutshell. Haven't murdered or molested anyone and are fit to play? You're in.
