MESUT f*****g OZIL LEGEND I LOVE U, SUCK ME PLZ
Stan, you're so filthy... just like Mesut's goal!
There were some stats on Arseblog which I recommend you all to read it:
http://news.arseblog.com/2017/12/arsenal-1-0-newcastle-plus-week-18-stats-by-the-numbers/

My take on current state of team, is that being wasteful in the attack (specially by Alexis) is our main problem. Alexis is just too predictable and he doesn’t have that much of assists and goals so he can hide his errors and giving away the ball easily. He needs a kick in the butt and also some bench time. I’m even inclined to see Nelson get ahead of him since he is a tricky player who can get past his opponent. Also Welbeck is not a bad option.
In the middle, Xhaka should be dropped, he is playing way below what he is expected. In the past two games Jack playing alongside him actually helped him since jack doesn’t bomb forward at every opportunity he gets, so Xhaka had help dealing with opposition player but even then, he didn’t have a good game at all. Play AMN in his natural position there, he is quick, strong (kind of) and really good on the ball. Also his shots don’t look bad either, certainly better than Coq and Xhaka (now). With Kolasinac out of form, play Chambers alongside Kos and Nacho at LB then move AMN in DM. I’m sure he can partner with anyone there even Ramsey.
Wilshere is what this club needed. Our midfield was becoming so reckless in recent times. A player like Jack is needed since he can control the ball and does not lose it carelessly and it is not by back or side passing.
Bellerin decision making is so bad, his crosses is even worse. He somehow finds a way to hit the opposition when crossing. He needs competition.
In the end, Laca is great at positioning himself that most of the time is not spotted but today he wasted a great chance which he should have buried easily.
+1
With regards to our 1st xi i don't think chambers is a good idea. AMN isn't doing so bad at fullback. I would have him on the right rather than bellerin and give Kolasinac another chance or even play him at CB rather than Chambers.

Wenger will never drop Xhaka he hasn't missed a single epl game all season no point even mentioning it. Those missed placed passes mostly happened towards the end before that his long balls were good. So hopefully he will sharpen up for liverpool
Besides what Spidermax has said, I feel like we are still very much clueless on attacks and counter-attacks. Seems like our players do not have any training on tactics, movements and group work to actively break down the opponent's defense, even when they are wide open. I'd blame Wenger on this.
Appobach, I blame wenger for all this but if you look at the stats provided by 7amkickoff in the link above, you can see we are not that bad. I think it is the moments when we a simple good pass can create a good opportunity and we either wait too long or lose the ball cheaply.
Also cech seems like is past his best. we need a replacement for him, if only a certain Polish goalkeeper was available that Juve wanted to replace Buffon
+3
Xhaka was fine in the first half then dropped off in the 2nd. I think it's (mental) fatigue. Since we're now playing 4-3-3, we don't really need his deep-lying playmaking skills as much since we have 4 other playmakers on the field (wilshere, Ozil, Iwobi, Sanchez). I would pick Coquelin against Liverpool for a bit of defensive security. He can replicate the partnership he had with Cazorla towards wilshere.
I think a lot of gunners are in agreement that Alexis needs to be dropped (among a few others) right this moment. I'd like to see Ozil slide central and stay central. His vision is something we really need right now and he's been in top form this past month. Wilshere is the closest we have to Santi and that link up play is what helps open the opponent up more than anywhere else on the pitch. Without Alexis in the team clogging up the midfield dropping deep and constant cutting inside and losing the f*****g ball we could actually provide some width and make the other team get pulled out of position. We're struggling so much to score on these weak ass teams that sit in with 9-10 men because everything comes from the middle or the middle-left. Wenger needs to show his intent and do what's right for the team and stop trying to keep this guy who clearly wants out happy all the time. And f*****g Xhaka, stop asking every player if they're ok after they get taken down. He disconnects from the game and isn't in a position ready for a quick restart. This team is driving me nuts. There's no clear vision of what we are.
Shaymoose, therer was no clear vision of who we are for about 3 years now. Even before that it was beginning to fade slowly. This team is the mirror image of it's manager who is struggling big time. We need someone who can transform these soft minded players into real winners and fighters.
xhaka wtf with all the lazy passes ?
should have subbed off alexis and xhaka at 60. all of their dangerous plays came from sh*t passes from one of them.
+2
shocking performance by those two, as usual
Let's just get out with a clean sheet boys
i think by the way we play, we will allow them to equalise late
we forgot how to score tapins..
Wilshere can't keep missing those..even in the previous game he missed a drop down from Giroud
why is wilshere been pushed down our necks. who is his Da, must be high up in the FA,
reminds me of Hargreaves for us.
Dont worry son if your fit you will play
^ Our necks?!
The goal will come for him, it is not like ramsey didn't miss anything. it is his first 2 PL start so we can cut him some slack
So Iwobi can nutmeg mascerano and then finish against romero with his left foot but has to put the ball in his right foot in similar situation now!
Atleast he tries to be unpredictable with his left sometimes.. Sanchez is so obvious everytime his on the ball..always goes right smh
Yeah, most predictable player on the pitch. I remember Robben was like this with his left foot, but still his shots was inch perfect and could score.. now sanchez is just really hard to watch.
Atleast Iwobi still has so much room to improve
what a miss from lacazette
AMN my MOTM so far...
So the finished Rooney has more goals than Lukaku😅
+4
Same number of goals but I get your point. But Lukaku does way more for the team than Roooney can at this point. He cannot spear head a team. I believe he is playing as a right forward for Everton.

I think it was time for us to move on from Wayne because he is nowhere near the player he once was but the united fans who say s**t like, he is a championship level player now are idiots. We just love to hate on our players.
I'd say good enough for Everton, but not good enough for United. The role behind the striker works better for him. He's a great finisher so he can still get in the box and do his thing, but the other strong point of his game is playing in final balls with great accuracy. Just look at his ball over the top to Calvert-Lewin (idk if sp. is right) but it was just on a dime from a very unexpected position and boom, he gets his team level in a huge derby match.
back in 2008, Rooney was a big thing, even if Ronaldo was winning Ballond'or, Rooney was not far from ronaldo' level.

Years later Ronaldo has won his 5th ballon d'or and led his country to the Euro's while Rooney was being benched by grandpa Zlatan and getting eliminated in the Euros by Iceland lol
Even though Ronaldo is unbelievably talented, most of it is due to hardwork,respecting his body etc.Ronaldo has never looked out of shape, a bit overweight etc.

Considering his initial potential, it feels like Rooney did not exploit his talent to its maximum,probably why fans were upset with him,especially with the national team, cause they always expected more from him, after all he is only 32
+1
I don't think it's right to say he didn't full fill his potential. He is our all time great scorer and one of the best players I have ever seen. He has won every trophy in European club competition. But his fitness has been poor and has caught up with him. He has not been the same since I would say the year RVP was brought in.
Some of it's genetics, not just down to hard work. Rooney worked damn hard on regrowing his hair.
+5
@Yaldho I was just comparing the evolution of their careers,after winning his 2nd ballon d'or Ronaldo was talking about how he wanted to keep improving which is what he did,whereas Rooney's career went the opposite way.

Rooney's fitness problem were sign of laziness, when he was only 30,without any major injury in his career.

Its like Ronaldhinho,eventhough he won everything, you know he could have prolonged his career and done a whole lot better.

Rooney could have had an even bigger legacy,with United and especially with the national team.
I dont know what you are talking about, Rooney has won more medals than many clubs do in 50 years. He has been single handedly winning his teams games since he was a 16 year old kid way before Ronaldo even came onto the scene. And ended up being the all time top goal scorer for man utd.
England national team is a joke, thats not his fault alone.

Ronaldo is a physical specimen and not all players can keep up with that level especially in the EPL.
Biggest problem Rooney faced was his game depended on pace and after 2009-10 he was not the paciest striker around. And many managers came and went who didnt know how to play him, Moyes and LvG tried converting him into a midfielder and thats why his goals dried up too
He is still good, you can't question his commitment and work rate because he gives it all, he is an EPL legend, CR7 is one of a kind, pretty harsh to compare them both, CR7 is a goal scoring monster
Rooney by no means had a bad career but a lot of people expected Rooney be the same or better as Messi/Ronaldo at there peak. Rooney would have broken Shearers record already if he wasnt force out of position so many times.

When he plays he gives 100% but outside of football he probably having 10 big macs or something

What Rooney achieved being a English player is remarkable. I follow lot of different sports and its very easy to notice how talented English players win something become co*ky and derail career.

If you compare anyone (except Messi) with Ronaldo then their achievements will look ordinary. Rooney is a legend.
