This is bad news for us, couldnt worse timing infact. Chelsea will be like a wounded animal in our game and that makes them a dangerous prospect. This was an ill timed post not very well thought out.
Gets the thumbs DOWN from me im afraid to say.
Oh look, 'Gunner' t posts and slayer just happens to be online .... what a coincidence!
Not only that, but both have exactly the same atrocious grammar.
"but sadly he isn't the sort of strikers who can make all the difference in tight games against the big guns as we have seen thus far."
"To say we have overachieved is an understatement liking to saying Henry was a decent finisher or wenger is a tightfisted."
Only a fool would rely on the table at this time of year. You should of learned from previous times!
Ozil isnt good hes brilliant, but that was showed at Madrid. This is the premiership and you must work hard to be a success here, and he is too much of lazy bones to be regarded as such Im afraid to say (think Berbatov or arshavin).
To say we have overachieved is an understatement liking to saying Henry was a decent finisher or wenger is a tightfisted. The table now does not reflect the true order of things. Man City will be top once they correct their way form (see bayern result for whats to come). Man united are still finding their form and will be strong once moyes makes it his team (see everton past 10 years for proof). Chelsea need major changes but with their investment in quality young players its hard to see past them for the next 10 years under mourinho, and spurs are one quality manager and striker signing away from being title challengers. Liverpool are the same.
We can kid ourselves saying we are top but truth is one punch to the ribs and we will be doing the bambi dance. its possible that we have already been hurt by recent results, and we are a couple of injuries away from a major slip up. WATCH THIS SPACE
"If you looked at most of our players you would of find the same sort of thing."
Is that why your beloved ManUre are 9th in the table below the Spud
If you looked at most of our players you would of find the same sort of thing. Giroud is OK, but no more. Arteta is the same, Rosicky is the same, due to Ozils inconsistency you have to conclude that is average at best. Koscielny is a liability, Mertsecker is average even on form, and Vermaelen is championship defender whilst Sagna is 2 years past his sell by date and Gibbs is a poor mans Clichy, and he wasnt great as it was.
Our greatest team had world class players in every position, this was beyond argument. Vieira, Bergkamp, Henry, Cole, Pires etc. That is what we should be aiming for but sadly you and all the other phoney fans on here would rather deny the truth to protect your fragile ego's. Sad but true state of affairs Im afraid. to say.
I'm not a Giroud fan either, and I think you would struggle to find any Arsenal fan who believes that he's our long-term solution in the striking department.
I think Wenger sees Giroud as a stopgap measure until we find adequate replacement. Giroud can hold his own against the lesser sides, but sadly he isn't the sort of strikers who can make all the difference in tight games against the big guns as we have seen thus far.
Qute from today's press analysing the stats on the top 15 PL strikers:
The Arsenal striker’s statistics make interesting reading. Of the Premier League’s top 15 scorers, Giroud needs by far the most chances to score, averaging 7.86 shots per goal, with Jay Rodriguez of Southampton the next highest at 6.00. Giroud’s percentage of shots on target is also the lowest at a poor 30.31%, with Loic Remy the next worse at 36.17%. Of the top ten scores in the league, Giroud has the lowest ratio of goals per game, currently at 0.48. The stats suggest that, although the Frenchman’s importance to the Gunners is unquestionable, Giroud is wasteful and could be improved upon; Arsenal’s reported interest in Diego Costa – who averages around three shots per goal, with 57.45% of those shots on target – seems unsurprising.
Look back over Gunner's' post history, it doesn't take an IQ higher than room temperature to work out who it is ..... SLAYER. And he's the first one, as you'd expect, to blame someone else.
"PROOF is in the pudding"
"the limited giroud"
"this will BARE fruit in the second HALVES of the season."
"a good point soundly made by MCMXCIX"
"you have the blinkers on it seemed"
"that is what I am sorry for you"
"our thread bare squad would not last the distance,"
...... and on and on and on ..... SLAYER .... FACT!
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.
Which is why I have said that Arsenal have done very well to come back from the 1st game defeat to opening a gap at the top. We have slightly over achieved so far and more investment (in the right areas of the pitch!) is vital. IMO Ozil is good and sometimes his linkage play with others is under estimated simply because others get the shot or goal at the end. That said, a quality forward is needed desperately
Owen, however, has labelled Ozil 'inconsistent', and even believes Arsenal still lack the quality to remain top.
'Despite people constantly telling me Mesut Ozil is world class, his inconsistency means that we only see occasional glimpses of real quality, he said. 'His odd good performance is usually followed by half a dozen poor ones.
'Arsenal don’t have the class of player to go toe to toe with the main title contenders'
PROOF is in the pudding, as I have said for a long time coming. Ozil wasnt what we needed this summer especially with the limited giroud our only option upfront, and this will bare fruit in the second halves of the season. NUFF said.
8 = nothing to do with football
5 = about Manchester United
2 = about Chelsea
4 - replying to football thread I started
1 = about Arsenal
PROOF that slayer does NOT support Arsenal, but chose them because they were top when he joined the forum.
No wonder none of the REAL Arsenal supporters have ever taken you seriously!
You just don't have it, slayer, the more you try, the worse you get ... "isn't it time you sling yer hook" ... "everyone on this forum detest you" ..... "You don't discuss footie per se" .... try posting in Hindi!
Hey Rikki, isn't it time you sling yer hook for good as clearly everyone on this forum detest you.
Surely you're not too thick to know that you're held in contempt by all the regular board users on here. You don't discuss footie per se, you only come here to post your incessant filth and try and wind-up the regulars.
Could there be a more despicable person on earth than this piece of trash known as Rikki?...... Rhetorical question btw, we all know the answer to that.

Come Walter Mitty Butch, I know that you're reading this, are you going to accept the challenge or are you suddenly going on holiday again for another spot of Orungutan spotting?
