Arsenal beat Everton 3-1 to finish the season in 5th with 75 points, 1 behind Liverpool. Koscielny sent off in the 14th minute suspends him for the FA Cup Final vs. Chelsea.

Wenger gets a 2-year contract extension. I don't agree with it, I think now was the time to implement somebody new. It could be that there wasn't an upgrade out there based on feelers, I guess we'll see in the summer if that was the case. Certainly, if Simeone, Allegri, etc., take new jobs, I'm not going to be pleased. Wenger does deserve some props on switching formations, 343 injected something into the team but I feel for it to work, they have to keep players like Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sanchez, just 2 of the guys rumored to be on the move.

I really hope we can hang onto Alexis because this team is looking legit.

It's a shame we couldn't grab him a couple of seasons ago but I'm really pleased about this one.

Good signing but I still think we need another CM because cazorla/ramsey/wilshere can not be relied upon and if we play a struggle midfield again we're going to drop points left and right.

I've been thinking about this quite a bit and as long as we hang onto Sanchez, we should be good. Play a 4-2-3-1, with Xhaka and one of Elneny/Coquelin. Ozil as the #10. Lacazette as the striker. Alexis as a winger, and then one of Ramsey/Cazorla/Walcott/Ox on the other side. Back line of Kola, Kos, Mustafi, and Bellerin. I think that's easily a top 4 squad, and maybe even good enough to challenge for the title (we figured out how to beat Chelsea in the FA Cup final!)
