Oh dear....I don't think I can recall anyone sounding as desperate as you. This latest attempt at a wind up is laughable in the extreme. You are even worse than thick Rikki FFS!!!
If Ozil is so inconsistent and his performances so poor on the whole, how come his assist rate is so high? And how come so many good results for Arsenal have come directly through Ozils assists, or Ozils goals? Oh....and how come the Madrid fans and players were so vocal in their disgust upon the sale of Mesut?
Please...don't bother trying to reply, do the decent thing and.....
run along, sorry one.

BTW I think Levy is making Spurs look a laughing stock with his manager management, £100m to spend and out before Christmas!!! Give 'em a proper chance FFS.

Thrashing? That wasn't a 'thrashing'. What City did to Spurs was a thrashing! As for the CL draw, 'arry' (and Spurs) can only dream of that.

The loss of three points is damaging, if half expected. The thing that worries me most is the potential damage to the confidence of the players, as that can be catastrophic.
Mourinho will sense any fear and Chelsea will aim to exploit that. Another chance for our lot to show 'character', which they have done in the past.
A win over Chelski would have those that are today writing Arsenal off, again having to re-evaluate the teams potential. An Arsenal loss will deal a heavy blow.
A much needed rest will hopefully, at least, have the team playing with more zip in their game and up for proving a point.

I don't think it's a case of 'over achieving' at all, more a case of playing to their capabilities. Arsenal lost to City, on their own ground where they are in great form. It was expected. I think on another day Arsenal could have won that game. Our defence was sloppy as was the midfield and that is asking for trouble against any top side.
Arsenal were judged wrongly offside at least three times when in great positions, one where a goal had been scored.
The pundits will rip into Arsenal over this, as they always do to any of the top teams when they falter, but to judge the team on one tough fixture at the end of one very tough week is foolish in the extreme, IMO.

I thought we were pretty awful and to me always looked jaded compared to the fresh City. Our passing was dire on the whole and our play in the final third was lacklustre. Defending was poor. Arsenal never got going at all.
City played some excellent football. Arsenal too, in short bursts.
The good news? Arsenal were IMO cream crackered, and it showed, yet still managed to get three goals and really could of had more. Koscielnys injury is not as bad as first thought.
I just hope the lads can put this behind them and show up against Chelsea, which will be extremely difficult.
Every team has a 'blip', hopefully, this has been ours.
Still in the race.
Unlike some I could mention!

'...It's the sort of phrase a creepy super-sneaky snoopy internet nasty stalking maniac would use...'
So that's your 'friend' Rikki....and his penchant for spending days tracking other posters lives?

Napoli needed to beat Arsenal by 3 goals, Arsenal didn't need to score to qualify, that is what showed in our game last night. The lads were taking it easy and Napoli finally managing to score two after Arteta went off means feck all.
It would have been a lot better to have won the group but this group was so tight that was always going to be on a knife edge. Hell,all the Arsenal haters were predicting the team wouldn't get out of the toughest group in the CL, instead the job was done and dusted before the difficult Napoli away fixture.
City is probably the toughest away fixture Arsenal have in the Prem this season, if we lose, it really will not be a surprise and with the 6 point lead we have built over them, we'll still have 3 points to our advantage. If we manage a win (unlike Manpoo! How many goals!?!?! PMSL) then all is good.
It must grate you somewhat Rikki

Do you honestly believe anyone will bother reading your post? BORING!!!
I note you are writing even less about football related topics than ever (and it has ALWAYS been a RARE occurrence. And never worthwhile reading either come to think of it).

Doesn't EVERYBODY know that!
Said it all when one of the refs (can't remember who) let slip he was texting Fergie for advice FFS!!!
What an absolutely disgraceful state of affairs.
Wenger was bang on when he commented refs being 'missed' at OT now Fergie has gone.
Apparently the glory boys that actually attend games (none of you then!), were booing the new manager after the LOSS to NEWCASTLE (Howay the geordies!).
Great 'support' GLORY boys!!!

Everton were the most difficult side I have seen Arsenal play so far this season, great passing game and they did indeed look as though they were the home side for the majority of the first half,Arsenal came good at the end of the half and finished with more shots on target than the visitors. I though our defence held steady against a real bashing.
Second half Arsenal were the better side for me, especially after the triple substitution. A draw was about right. Everton certainly didn't 'deserve' the win but i'll grant they played well enough for the point. Still gutted the lads didn't manage to see the game out after a wonderfully worked Ozil goal.
No shame in ManU and Chelsea losing to Everton!?!?! After the tens of millions they have spent building their squads!?!?!
