Today's my Bday guys. I seriously had 2 close calls operating a backhoe on a steep hillside building some boulder retaining walls yesterday where I almost went over the edge. Got me thinking of how thankful I am for the 2 girls in my life, my friends, and my great Arsenal community. Cheers to you guys!

Not today he says to the grim reaper! Till the next close call. Cheers and Happy birthday.

Happy Birthday, have a good day
Wilshere out for 3 weeks. Smh
I actually thought it would have been longer. So in a way, I'm kinda glad.
Well... 3 weeks quite often becomes 3 months especially with wilshere!
That's a good point... s**t, now I'm worrying again.
This injury settles it,our starting 11 is more or less set and the system is working, he's a great squad/bench player for us until he proves otherwise or injuries hand him a chance to break in later.
+2
Listened to BBC podcast or whatever its called and someone said we need to get CB.. I really don't get why we need CB?? can someone explain it to me? They haven't mentioned Gabriel once (who was good when played) I think they completely forgot we got him ;D, also no mentions of Chambers (who did very well at CB position). All they said if Kos gets injured we are in big trouble

And of course they saying we not gonna win the league. Except for one pundit in there (I think its was Shay Given) he believes we will win the league.
+1
I've been an Arsenal fan for a long time, I've studied a bit of Arsenal's history as well. Since the invincible, I haven't seen our team this balanced and have so much depth as this team right now.

GK: Great, does not need strengthen

CB: Great, does not need strengthen

MF: Great, does not need strengthen

FW: Great, does not need strengthen

For once, i'am very satisfied with our current team. Of course, I would like a rotation for Coquelin, but when Arteta is fully fit, he can easily slide in and help while Coquelin rest.
Because Arsenal are ALWAYS on the cusp of potentially being champions...whatever the hell that means. But, the expectation for us is very high. And we're not going to win the league if we don't have a big name CB pairing. It's pretty simple.

Say we get in (hypothetically) a John Terry, old Vincent Kompany etc. those big names stir the pot and ad merit to a squad that will push them to glory.

Pardon me, but Gabriel...not proven in our level and not given enough game time to do so - we don't know his potential. Chambers has been picked to pieces as a RB so many ppl's opinions of him are skewed as a CB.
@Shaymoose17 have you watched Chambers play as CB?? Cause I did and he was impressive, got really big potential in CB position for me.. Gabriel just wasn't given enough game time, but how you can? When you have 2 established CB who play with each other very well. Also big names CB we got him and its Kos, he is one of the best if not the best CB in PL.

Honestly I ve never felt that confident about this Arsenal team like this year. Of course I wouldn't mind us getting Benzema, but even if we don't I still believe we will win the league
I'm satisfied with our CBs. Cech behind them will take them to a higher level. Plus coq in front of them. Gabriel as a backup is just about right. Chambers is not so ready but debuchy and Monreal are great CBs as well with more than a decade of football experience
I've seen 1 game of Chambers at CB last season and I wasn't exactly impressed, but didn't expect much tbh. I'm not going to rely on him b/c he's inexperienced and will only get better so why bother b/c he's not a starter at this point. But I do like Gabby. He's got the aggression and height I like in a CB. I too am confident in him as being our 3rd CB if one of ours goes down.

Still think we need DM strength. Coq is a wild man and honestly it's only a matter of time before he's injured and we're stuck with Arteta once again.
Gabby reminds me of kos when we first got him. Fast, strong, aggressive but raw as hell. Maybe a little rash, will pick up red cards every so often until he matures a bit
gabby is good in air too unlike per/chambers.
Agree with Gunnzo on Gabriel, I think Gabriel-Chambers will be are future CB partnership.
+2
I think maybe you need cover for DM and maybe a striker? That's really the only places really and aren't too urgent tbh.
+1
The Mertesacker-Koscielny partnership is excellent in my opinion. They have contrasting skills and attributes that compliment each other very well.

I also think Chambers and Gabriel are like-for-like replacements, so we can rotate either in the event of injury.

Gabriel = Koscielny type. Aggressive, quick, strong.
Chambers = Mertesacker type. Anchor, reads the game well to cover for the lack of pace.

Agree with yunggunner here, there not much of players out there who can displace our first 11. Only proper world class players are able to displace them.

No one from united can displace our 1st 11. De gea vs cech is debatable.

No one from liverpool.

Kane is debatable.

Costa, hazard, cesc and matic are capable of displacing them. Courtois to certain extent.

Aguero from city.

Just my opinions tho
But Herrera is better than Cazorla
I'll take Bastian ahead of coq
Give bastian and coq a full season in prem league, then we'll talk
+1
Bastian is a bit of an unknown quantity right now. I'd stick with Coquelin. Le Coq is younger and has more EPL experience. I doubt Bayern would sell Bastian if he was still close to his peak. I think he might be over the hill. He was bought as experienced cover. Schweinsteiger Schniderlin Blind and Carrick though. Good depth at this position utd have there.
Shaymoose, is that a sarcastic reply or a true one?
Brighton sign Bobby Zamora

Georgios Samaras will have a medical with Sampdoria tomorrow (Di Marzio)

Juventus want Luiz Gustavo (Di Marzio)

Napoli have offered 15m for Nikola Maksimovic but Torino want 25m (Di Marzio)

Southampton are ready to offer 16m for Leon Goretzka (Bild)

The look on wenger and mourinho's face is too damn funny lol

Joao Virginia( youngster: Benfica to Arsenal) will be announced in a few days.

Liverpool have won the race to sign Adama Traore, Roma was in for him too, but he chose Liverpool. It seems like a permanent deal 15m euro, which is a BARGAIN!!! I hope Barcelona put a buy-back clause or something.

Pedro to United for around 20m, I believe it will happen, very soon.

Rafael(United) to Lyon is done deal.

Leicester City signed Atalanta's defender Yohan Benalouane, a decent payer.

Benitez said "I think" Benzema will stay, AS(not very reliable) are saying Arsenal will bid in the region of 40m.

Khedira out for 2 months.
+2
Crystel Palace sign Wickham for 9m
Jordan Ibe might be going out on loan.
+1
^ not sure where you're getting that from. But I'm about 85%-90% sure he isn't going out on loan after the pre season he's had.
+1
I'm 100% sure he's not going out on loan. The lad is Pool's wildcard this season, just might surprise a few.
we'll see.
I think markovic might go out on loan.
Robbie Brady to Norwich has been overlooked. SMH come on Yung Gun!
I saw Benitez's interview and he said he's NOT going anywhere.
Not trying to lift any hopes but same being said about Ozil of not going anywhere
I didn't know anyone cared about Norwich and Brady lol @Shaymoose17
Brady at Hull 2 years ago was gold for my fantasy squad lol that's the only reason I know who he is
When Ozil left there were multiple replacements for that position... Now RM barely have 1 striker (if that)
Arsenal's academy recruitment drive keeps going -

It now looks like we've signed Benfica goalkeeper Joao Virginia.

@MessiMinutes


Same kid MU were after last season I think, oh well looks like are academy is beefing up, we are taking the Chelsea route of nicking the decent youngsters lol
+1
arsenal have always done that, brought in talented players already well-known or highly regarded. i don't understand what you mean by taking the chelsea route? fabregas is probably the biggest and most acrimonious case because of how barca fans protested.. chelsea are not late to the party either, their academy is very strong and filled with talents they acquired, but it's just that not many of them get chances at the senior level, compared to academy kids at other big teams.
+1
I think he meant it in a good way @SIF. lol

But I agree, Chelsea does have a lot of talents, but the club seems to want instant impact, which is why there's not many youngsters featuring at senior level.
Yeah I meant it in a good way, Chelsea's transfer team are unreal buying young talents, developing them for a few years, and then selling em for bucket loads, obvious cases being Lukaku etc
+2
SIGN ALL THE BARCA KIDS
then sell them all back for 1 billion.
i never said anything was good or bad? i was just saying arsenal have a history of buying talented kids (And continuing to develop them), there's nothing good or bad about that imo. just fact.

this is why id be infuriated had there been a option to buy.
Back 2 back FA cup and Community Shield winners...you deserve it boys. Go take your selfies of your 6 packs and beautiful hair.
Roy Keane is too old school, it's hilarious
+1
that's what im saying^ this is the NEW generation.
I think Keane has a point. I am no arsenal fan but I somehow doubt you would see the invincibles behaving in the manner stated.
It's a generational thing, the invincibles obviously didn't have a social media presence because it didn't exist yet. These players probably have pr advisors who help manage their Instagram and Twitter accounts and I'm sure they've got the go ahead to keep taking these selfies
+2
come on man, it's been a decade.

I don't care, as long as we keep winning. When our players take selfies and have fun, I see it as a group of younger/older brothers enjoying their time and celebrating the victory.

It does not affect the way they play, it does not affect their performance, EVERY PLAYER on the pitch gives 100% everytime.

Roy Keane can shut up now.
+3
They gon ask for it #back2back
I see you listen to drake too (:
I don't like it tbh. But it's obviously what everyone does these days. What happened to soaking the moment in and living in it? That s**t is dead! Technology is killing this world. Too fast, too much, to attached 24/7.

I actually freaked out 2 weeks ago. My buddies and I were at a table grabbing drinks and at 1 instance I look to see those 3 guys all looking at their phones not saying a damn word. "Wtf, look at you guys! The conversation is right here not in your phones."

I don't think they even knew i was talking...
I agree^ Shay.

I think parents and elders need to encourage kids and young teen to go outside a lot more (like the 70s,80s,90s or whenever the technology didn't take over a kid's life yet in the past), go out to nature and limit electronic usage. But, then again, the whole world is technology, technology and technology. You can only limit yourself and your family.

Though, I don't believe selfies/technology affect players. Roy Keane is just old school and doesn't get it. Instagram/Twitter is two of the biggest social network, where players can share things with fans and all.
+1
Our Invincibles squad was very very cheeky and mischievous, if social media was a thing of that time, i'm sure they'd do the same when they were that age and during this time. Look back.
+1
Jose and Cahill claim that chelsea where the better team, i thought so at first, but looking at the stats again i have to disagree with both

http://www.espnfc.us/gamecast/statistics/id/432389/statistics.html

For me i don't always look at possession, i always look at what was done with the ball during that possession, in other words was the possession positive?

For me the shots on goal(to me the most important stat) tells me a lot of who where the more lethal team and in fact better imo. They had 14 shots total and only two were on goal, we had 11 and five! were on goal and out of those five courtois saved 4! freaking beast, if our conversion was better the game would have ended at least 5-2
We scored first in the first half. Second half was always going to be more possession to Chelsea. Its always like that between top teams (except Barca).
I rely dont give a f**k of possession, shot on target, play style and number of goal score..at the end what it count its who win the match..its us, those two should shut up their mouth and accept the defeat..you win 3-0, 2-1, 1-0, for me its 3 points..and 1-0 for arsenal its victory, no excuz, keep tears in their pockets, try hard next time and we will see..happy with the win..hope we continue to improve!!
+2
Sir, this game was worth 0 points.
+1
our style was definitely better. There was this brilliant move but Ox had a heavy touch in the end, that could have been the best goal scored in England for the coming season. I have a feeling we will see a lot of good Arsenal moves this year.
ARSENAL IS GREATER THAN CHELSEA, I don't care what anyone else says.


It's hard for Mourinho to admit that, since he's the special one. lol
+4
end of the day i don't think we can look more dominant without Giroud's body upfront against any physical side. He was the missing piece just look at how our other shot on target was not at all impressive. Imagine if it was Giroud instead of Walcott on that header. Forced to play our way out from the back even with all there high pressing. Our attacks were easy to defend cause they all knew they had us beat in the air
Those stats aren't worth much. Yes, Chelsea only had 2 on target, but they should've had 2 more on target. Those were probably the 2 clearest chances.

The goal was certainly the turning point, because Chelsea were playing better up to that point. But the goal put the game plan right into Wenger's hands, and the rest of the match was pretty much even.

One thing I like with FIFA (game) stats is the action zones that comes along with possession. I personally think that stat is more important than simply possession. The other important stat for me is "clear cut chances," but it's not so clear who gets to make the call on "clear cut."
We won the battle but not the war.
we were the better side in first half. They dominated in second but we could have sealed the game 2-3 times(giroud, cazorla)
