  1. Drinkwater

    Sigurdsson has been playing at or around the same standard Drinkwater hit for a year for at least 3 years now AND he's a great free kick taker. Absolutely boggles my mind the value some on here seem to ascribe to Drinkwater, even allowing for blue tints.
  2. Let's have a TV shows thread.

    The pickle Rick episode in season 3 is absolutely bananas. You won't see a more bonkers half an hour of TV.

    Not to mention Cambiasso.
  4. BHA pre match

    Bit of a bogey team for us. Beat us 7-2 on aggregate in the 102 point season.

    Set piece defending has been atrocious this weekend.

    Yeah on reflection I think I was wrong about those. There is a wider question about what sort of tackles we should be looking to outlaw. For me Cahill is still just about in control - he's got one leg on the floor bearing much of his body weight - realistically he's not going to cause anybody long term damage like that. As Shearer said on MOTD last night, I'm not sure it should be a red card but the laws are what they are.

    This has got 0-1 written all over it

    Luckiest side in the league. So many shit home wins last year - they were comfortably one of the worst 3 sides last season and have started this year by playing 9 men as a courtesy of two pretty harsh red cards. Cahill's studs are up but he's not out of control. The Fabregas red card was ridiculous. I'd be furious if I were a Chelsea fan.
  9. Crazy Stat. time!

    Fun fact. Yesterday we were top of the league for 3 times longer than Spurs were in the whole of the 2015/16 season.
  10. Mike Dean Stuffed Us Yet Again.

    Yeah I didn't get the sense they were going to score, unlike when it got to 3-3 at which point the 4th felt inevitable. I see where you're coming from though - you're damned if you do and damned if you don't.
  11. Arsenal post match 4-3

    Yes, we lost the game because of individual mistakes, but you can't just separate the individual errors from the formation that we adopted when Iheanacho came on. At that point we were asking for trouble in a way that we weren't with Okazaki on (stopping threats at source) or in the 4-5-1 (more bodies in and around the box). Also, people saying King wouldn't have made a difference? If there's one thing we're all agreed Andy King can do it's make totally nondescript 5 yard passes to retain possession. That is exactly what we needed today. Loads of positives though - we tried to win the game which is already a big step up from last season, Vardy looked razor sharp and James was good.

    I thought we had them where we wanted them with the 4-5-1. Wouldn't have been my choice but I thought it was doing the job nicely. Certainly didn't feel like a goal was inevitable.

    Okazaki can't do 90 minutes the way he runs around. The fact we have no like-for-like replacement for him is disappointing but it would probably be a bit of a luxury in an 18 Man match day squad.
  15. Mahrez to .......................?

    Coutinho has got absolutely nowhere near the standard Mahrez reached in 2015/16. I watched back the DVD from that season the other night and he did something amazing (goal/assist/ridiculously brilliant piece of skill or attempt on goal) in probably 33 of the 38 league games that season. He scored crucial winners at Watford and Palace, settling tight games nervelessly when the pressure was really on. He bagged the opener at home to Swansea when everybody was panicking about missing Vardy. He scored at crucial times against Chelsea, Man City and Spurs. Coutinho will never reach those heights. Maybe Mahrez never will again. But what they're buying with Coutinho is consistency (which I suspect you'd see more of from Mahrez were he surrounded with better players).
