    Happy New Year

    by John Jan 2, 2015 16:56

    The only thing that's going to shift Wenger and his thinking, is if Tottenham knock us out of a place in the CL. And that is not as far away as some may think. A sobering thought for many, including the Arsenal board, who just might sit up and pay attention for once. BTW A Happy New Year to you and everyone. BTW again what was AW thinking of when he had 3 or 4 five foot 'nothings' up front against a six foot plus defence at S'hampton?

    Wilshere caught smoking...again

    by John Feb 5, 2015 13:49

    A few seasons ago we never thought we would be talking about Wilshire this way. About his potential etc. We expected that by now the talking would be about his actual game rather than his potential.

    He should no longer get a free ride and for the moment, even if he is fit, I don't see his place in the starting 11.

    The other problem Arsenal have, IMO, is that we have too many players that have similar attributes. Good technique, easily ran of the ball, small physique, not particularly pacy, preferring to play in the middle of the park.

    IMO, we can only really play with a maximum of 2 such players at a time. If you consider 4 defenders and 1 DM that leaves room (ideally) for 2 small technical players, a striker and two quick wide players.

    In fact I don't even think there is space for Ozil in our starting 11.

    At the moment I would argue for Sanchez-Giroud-Walcott up front and Bellerin - Mert - Cos - Monreal or Gibbs in the back with Coquelin as DM.

    This leaves 2 places for centrally functioning midfielders and to me on current form Cazorla is a shoe in leaving Ramsey, Wilshire, Rosicky, Ozil, Ox. When all fit my second choice would be Ox since he has pace which you need in today's game IMO.

  • We need to play better than we have in a long time to beat West Ham but given that they compete with us for 4th this is a must win game as strange as that sounds. I am not too optimistic and hope for a late Christmas gift.

    Maybe we can finally give our best goal scorer, Podolski, a chance now that Giroud conveniently got him self a winter break.

  • The way we are playing at the moment, I've pencilled in a win for us at City. Foolish? Well you might have said that had I predicted a 3 nil win against Stoke. But seriously, its no great challenge the way city are playing and it would be no shock. Defeat? Well that wouldn't be a shock either now would it? Best of luck boys.

    Perhaps they were probably just Mancrapper Ushyted fans pretending to be Arsenal fans.

    I'm sure Le Poof and that soft old fairy from Cairns had a couple of ID's where they tried to pose as Arsenal supporters so that they could stir the shyte in these forums. The pair of them would spout more shyte about clubs like Arsenal and Chelsea than they ever could over Mancrapper Ushyted.

    Both have gone, driven away and history now, so loads of LMFAO over that one!

    OINK OINK!!!

    the poor beggar of the boards....

    by TheButchNemesis Dec 5, 2014 23:16

    Surely, someone who owns a Bentley would easily be able to afford to buy their own nightclub in such a cheap country like Bali?

    Or is this nightclub just a front for human trafficking and exploiting underage girls into selling their meat for pennies to dirty old nonces from Australia?

    So, you're not just nuts deep in orangutans, there's children involved too!

    Seven weeks of pretending to be travelling, but I know that you were really on the Yahoo articles in your various different ID's getting yourself wound up, as per usual. - LMFAO!!!

    OINK OINK!!!

    LMFAO - so you log into another one of your many ID's, start talking to yourself and then try and use Wiki as a way to justify your argument by highlighting the word GAME in capital letters, all within under an hour of my posting on here!

    Go on, check on Wiki page for BBC Sports Personality of the Year award winners.

    You'll see in 1988 - Steve Davis, a snooker player won it. - ROTFFLFMAO!!!

    lol a Spurs fan posting anti semitic go figure ...... nice try though....you gotta larf...

  • Scoring heaps of goals?

    Has he got over his habit of missing sitters yet?

  • Any complaints after knocking the champions over today. Told you so but its getting like talking to a brick wall on here. Must get back to the Arsenal Club site, its shyte here.

  • So far in 2015, he has made more interceptions than any player in the top 5 European leagues and has won more tackles than any other Premier League player.

    This does not surprise me.

    Oh look, it's fair-weather Jackar$e, nowhere to be seen after the Stoke game, but pops up whenever Arsenal wins.

  • I personally think AW would have settled for a draw at the start of the game. And from a improvement point of view it made very little difference, as once again results in the PL keep yo-yoing up down each week. The equalizer was a matter of naivety. Should have been playing 'keep the ball' instead of waiting for the whistle to blow in desperation. However at the end of the season it will have had little effect on 3rd or 4th place. Also does anyone not see a golden opportunity in the CL having drawn Monaco?? I do, and I think we could be the very dark horses here. The unbeaten in several matches now, still leaves us with great potential. Though to read Yahoo and the rest of the Arsenal knockers, its 'the end' for Arsenal and AW. ....guffaw!

    Happy New Year

    by John Jan 2, 2015 16:56

    Happy New Year John and those few left on this board. I think Podolski makes us weaker in theory only. Wenger refused to play him and even chose Sanogo ahead of him.

    Personally I don't think Wenger will do what it takes in the window and on the pitch. I also think he is burning out Sanchez by playing him way too much. A few weeks ago Wenger admitted Sanchez is playing in the red zone, yet with the exception of 1 CL game he has not rested him. This could come back to haunt us. Also when Ozil returns we will be even weaker defensively. So my prediction that we finish outside of the top 4 still stands.

    We don't even have the budget to buy the players we need. IMO we need Schneiderlin and a top quality CB.

    TBH even with our injured players fit we didn't impress.

    I agree with Jacks that it was a nobrainer that we were not going to trouble Southampton throwing crosses into the box to Sanchez, Carzorla and Rosicky. I guess even Campbell has more physical presence than those three yet Campbell is an other player Wenger gives no minutes to get used to the PL.

  • Only shouting when they're winning!

    Now I OWN this place, and every Geordie who ever posts here!

    LMFAOATTGs!!!

  • I hope everyone had a relaxing and enjoyable Christmas with family and friends. I am planning to keep January dry. Not only does my liver need to rest, but my wallet took a big hit throughout December too!

    No doubt many would have been delighted, bemused and frustrated in equal measure by their teams performances over the festive period.

    The mid-season sales open tomorrow. I for one can't wait to see what efforts are made to strengthen our team.

    4th and progress in the CL will only be possible with at least two new signings.

    To be honest Jack, I have been busy at work and the board has become, lets say, scarce of any meaningful or fun debates and discussions.

    A few things have happened which I was delighted with.

    Hector Bellerin is developing really well. He has had some great games and will provide Wenger with a real headache when Jenkinson comes back, because he's doing very well too.

    Coquelin had a brilliant game against City, which was in itself a great result.

    I'm keeping everything crossed that Paulista will be as brilliant for us as he has been for Villareal this season.
    He looks like the perfect remedy for those games where Mertesacker is just too slow.

    I am up at the Emirates for the Villa game on Sunday and have already got my tickets for the Monaco game too. Looking forward to the run in now.
