  1. arsenal fan in peace...

    Arsenal have two class players in Sanchez and Koscielny. Ozil could be class, but far too often disappears in the games that count. They have many mediocre players - Xhaka, Mustafi, Elneny, Mertesacker, Monreal, Giroud, Walcott, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Chambers, Coquelin Difficult to pass judgement on Lacazette. Took his goal well, and had another effort that Schmeichel tipped over the bar. Looks and plays a little like Darren Bent. If Arsenal are to be in the mix near the end of the season, he will need to score 15+ goals. Arsenal will not be champions. May finish in the top 4
  2. Arsenal post match 4-3

    He should have come on for Okazaki.We are going for a fourth to kill them off. They were woeful defensively.
  3. Arsenal post match 4-3

    Don't think that Amartey is the man that was going to stop them
  4. Arsenal post match 4-3

    It said to Arsenal, ' we are giving up on trying to score a killer fourth goal against your woeful defence and we will try to hang on desperately for a draw, please attack as much as you want'
  5. Arsenal post match 4-3

    Fair comment. Remember the first goal for Sevilla (away) and Athletico's goal at the KP.
  6. Arsenal post match 4-3

    Huge mistake by Shakey in bringing Amartey on. Should have been positive and bought Nacho on. Instead, he goes out to defend a lead. Arsenal were there for the taking. What we learnt tonight: A threat going forward Morgan is done at this level Amartey contributes nothing, and is out of his depth Perhaps Mahrez should go after all Need Huth back as soon as Simpson looks a bit of a liability
  7. Arsenal.. Away: match thread...

    Without Sanchez, they really look a very average side, weak at the back.
  8. Arsenal.. Away: pre match thread...

    Kolasinac and Mertesacker are donkies, so Mahrez and Vardy should get some joy. Worried about our midfield - Ndidi is class, but whose going to play alongside him. Defence is a concern as well - we really do miss Huth. Morgan is struggling. We never beat these at their ground, so hopefully I'm wrong but I can see it being 1-2

    Zaha is someone else who has quite reached the heights that were expected of him. Does anyone remember Francis Jeffers at Everton? Jack Wilshere Theo Walcott Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Phil Jones Darren Bent

    I think he gets more hype because he plays for Man Utd. Has potential, but raw pace may not be enough. I always remember Lee Sharpe being given similar accolades at a young age, Alan Smith of Leeds seemed to be world class and Jonathan Woodgate was likely to be the next Bobby Moore...
  11. Premier League, 2017-2018 Season Thread

    Once again, despite all the spending, this is an average league. If we can get our act together, we can comfortably finish in the top eight at least. So many poor teams - three promoted sides, Burnley, Bournemouth, Palace, Stoke, WBA, Swansea, West Ham, Southampton, Watford As for the so-called 'big' teams: Arsenal - they won't be winning the Premier League with players such as Xhaka, Monreal, Welbeck, Giroud. Man City - massive spending spree. £50M for Walker, as outrageous as the same amounts previously paid for Stones and Sterling. Despite the huge investment, they have only won the Premier league once more than we have Liverpool - weak defence. Coutinho will be off to Barcelona, so they have lost their only class player. Man Utd - big transfer fees, but will this to be to no avail? Chelsea - surprisingly all over the place in terms of losing so many players. Could Hazard be off to to Real Madrid/ Barcelona?
