    The boot....???

    by Jacks Nov 25, 2014 11:00

    I am not sure what position we should prioritize, a DM or a CD? Should Kos be back to full fitness I would chose a very good DM over a central defender. I think Schneiderlin might be one of the best in the PL. But should Kos continue to struggle than we clearly should prioritize a central defender IMO.

    In an ideal world we should sign one of each. Maybe a Virgil van Dijk at CD and a clear upgrade (Khedira? bender?, Carvalho?) on Flamini and Arteta.

    However I don't see Wenger sign a quality DM this window or any tie soon.

    What do you think?

    Not so pointless....

    by Jacks Dec 22, 2014 14:26

    I think it was a great and important result. Of course to give it away late leaves a bad taste in our mouth but like you said, if you play panic football in the last 20 minutes you are likely to concede against a better team and Liverpool had been batter all game. Liverpool trailing us in the table and possibly competing with us for 4th meant a draw was better result for us than for them.

    We look likely to survive an other round in the CL but what will that lead to and will it harm our fragile squad and chances for 4th in the PL? Who knows. At this point in time I find it hard to get excited about the prospects of beating Monaco, an other mid-table average team.

    I hope against reason and history that Wenger will buy a starting type caliber defensive player either CD or defensive midfielder during the January window. Schneiderlin would make me very happy.

    I think Chaimbers had a stinker and I wonder if he is not, at this point, a better CD than RB. Clearly Wenger thinks Debuchy is the better CD. I also think Mertesacker is not having a great year and that is costing us even if it is in his failure to organise the defense during set pieces. I am sure it frustrating to every Arsenal fan to continue to concede from set pieces year after year. To me that should be one of the parts of the game you can practice for and improve on yet it is hard to see such improvement.

    I still don't think we take 4th this season and I fear we might be exposed by West Ham. We are lucky Song is leaving for the ACN.

    11 dropped points from winning positions thus far, that would have put us in contention for the PL title.

  • Time to rest Sanchez and give Walcott, Ozill or Campbell some minutes?

    Hahaha, I knew it wouldn't take long for you to BITE!

    " nobody even remembers who you are" ..... Except YOU, Mr "I Watched From The North Bank Fifty Years Ago" Brown!

    And the Geordie Child, of course, he's been worried sick for seven weeks that I wouldn't come back, cos I'm all he lives for, I'm his online fantasy world, along with his pretend house in France, his pretend property empire, his pretend fleet of classic cars, and his pretend wife!

    So get back to "normal", yank, run down everyone who has an opinion on football .... John and Govinda, and show us just what a twot you are!

    PS: How's Gillian, has she found the number for the cops yet? I'll bet they're just itching to track me down for insulting you!

    LMFAO!!

  • ...defending again against an equally shambolic Stoke, as were some of the other results today. shambolic Chelsea, as well as L'pool, Tottenham, Everton, and most of the top ten. So its not just Arsenal. The result didn't matter at all in terms of position in the league. Manure going dutch, will as usual go backwards again and we are all back to where we were a week ago. Time to wake up another shambolic human, who is probably well into his third bottle of rum on a Saturday night. We should be getting some of his bucolic vomiting on here some time soon. He's about as boring as Manchester's football......

    Good to see....

    An easy 1-4 win for Arsenal against Galatasaray, it's just a shame Arsenal are not getting results like this week in and week out in the Premier League or they could easily be sitting top of the league!

    OINK OINK!!!

  • ....No!!!!??? Good God! I'm move to tears. Surely there has to some complaints like it should have been 10 - 1. Well 5 at least seeing how Welbeck never touched the other bloke before scoring. But I think I'll go to Rio on that result, rather than fly blown Bali. Anyway its full of kids and old bald blokes in thongs and Speedo briefs (Budgie smugglers ) with their fat gut hanging over them. Can't be much fun unless your into that kind of thing.

    Good result, Lewis Hamilton, a SPORTSMAN, wins SPORTSMAN of the Year.

    Snooker is a GAME, not a sport, good luck to Sullivan for GAMER of the Year.

    Happy New Year

    by John Jan 2, 2015 16:56

    Well the early news reports Podolski is off to Milan on loan.

    My guess it is with an option to buy at the end of the season.

    In my humble opinion, this just made our squad weaker.

  • bad result for us but the way we played we didn't deserve more IMO.

    Since this board seems dead, I will spare myself the typing of what we could have tried to do to improve the second half after a poor first half.

    I still think 4th is out of reach for us.

  • On paper we are still in it against Monaco tonight. With the squad we have compared to Monaco we should have more than the 5% chance we are given.

    Having said this, Monaco has performed better then their squad would imply IMO and we tend to under perform in the big games. We saw 2 pleasant surprises this season, one against City and one against Man U.

    I think Paulista playing would help but as it stands I predict a draw tonight. I expect to fall pray again to the Monaco counter attack, a weakness we have had for years and I fear we will start rushing and play panic football way too early.

    Clearly an early Arsenal goal could spice this game up but chances are higher IMO that a first half Monaco goal would kill an already dead tie of completely.

    The silver lining is that being eliminated from the next round of CL football will save us 2 games our squad doesn't need and will allow us to focus on the PL 2 and 3 places (hopefully) and the FA cup.

    With Man U, Liverpool and probably City all out of Europe at least it would level the fixture burden a little amongst those teams fighting for the top 4 places.

    Direct qualification for next years CL would be a big bonus IMO and better than making it one more round in the CL.

    Dear ghosts any thoughts?

    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!!!

    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.

  • And up they pop!

    They've waited all this time, then, like London buses, two come at once .... coincidence?

    Methinks not!

    LMFAOATTG!!!
