A few things that I loved about our victory over Norwich last week: Wenger making a sub in the 55th minute rather than the usual 70th and not making a like for like by taking of giroud - 2 strikers prays off. Secondly, was when Danny score the goal from girouds knock down and giroud put his hand up to his ear to hear the applause. Remember, the stadium booed the sub choice of taking iwobi out rather than giroud. Well done Arsene, well done.

On that striker note, I wish we'd play a 442 or a 433 more often. Maybe that'd change our frustration with our midfield not doing anything of value with the ball. We sit on the ball too long before getting it up to our strikers and this is why teams are sitting deep on us usually nowadays. We pretty much invite them to get set up defensively. Thoughts on formation change from the regular 4231?
With Inter not getting CL football again, maybe a move for Mauro Icardi could be a possibility?
need a little help.
Is there any documentation about fouls of football?
If a player have the ball and the opposition player goes in a challenge with his stokes up but touches the ball (not sliding tackle).
I see refs blow for foul, is there any documentation so i can prove this?
one of my colleagues insists that ref was in atletico's side last night. I couldn't watch the game so I can't pass any judgement. So if there is anyone unbiased here and watched the game, can you please describe how ref did last night?
No ref was brilliant tonight.
Oh boy transfer season is not even started but we been link with players from here and there.
i am ok with player link to arsenal but not gunners link to elsewhere
my question is why do you even listen. Its obvious tabloids feed off of people like you so why even bother? when the club announce then you can speculate all you want. It's really that simple
This is what i do cloudust. I never bother looking for transfer news lol
Just wait til deadline day and then look at transfer rumors ;) You'll be far less disappointed!
Yeah, all these transfer rumors get me rather annoyed to be frank, what gets me even more is that people still fall for it.
"Best manager in the world" has taken a bunch of UCL finalists and winners and turned them into semi-finalists. Wonder what he will do at City. Ever since the news broke out of him going there i've been hoping City some how miss out on the UCL just so we can see what his made of
Like every human Pep have his flow his defesive is not as good as his offensive and possession but to compare that to him and Wenger i say I would take Pep.
+1
Pep is overrated, simone should be given this title.so let me rephrase it: Best manager in the world - Simone who converted a good team with no star players into a champion team.

He might win both la liga and ucl. situation for them is almost the same as was in 2014. wow what a consistency!
+1
but both better than wenger
LOL , on the day the most vocal Bayern fans that hate pep are saying its not pep faults some arsenal fan are blaming pep.

Don't understand why Arsenal fans have been quite salty towards Pep ever since City announced his appointment ?

BTW nice logic of once the finalist should always be the finalists.

And Peter believe me when i tell you this , City losing out on CL will be one of the best thing that happens to Pep , he isn't going to win the CL with City in his first season anyways , if city are not in CL it will give Pep more time to assess and prepare his squad without taking much blame.

On other hand City winning CL this season will be worse for Pep as it will raise the already high expectations to almost unrealistic levels, just like what happened at Bayern.
I don't hate pep but i don't get it when people(peter not you) says hes the best.

The bigger the team, The higher the expectations. 3 years no ucl final for bayern let alone win it. i can't say pep lived up to his expectations Malik.

Hes is certainly not the best manager!
Please stop talking about Pep or Pep's beard or Pep's dog on this forum, or else we have to go though the long and rubbish essays of the salty barca fans.
+1
@Coorperateeye1 , Twice they got knocked out by eventual winners and other top 2 teams is the world , this time they got knocked out by one of the best team of the season and potential favorites for the title.

I do agree that he have underachieve his target but i also do understand how difficult it is to repeat or win the CL , lots of factors have to side in your favor to win the CL let alone win it twice in a row.

Even if we go by the popular opinion of top 3 team Barca , Real and Bayern above others, one of this top team is suppose to progress till Semi's only.

My problem with all this Bayern / Pep situation is that some people believes that Heynckes Bayern was so strong that they were never suppose to go down , which is completely wrong & this belief leads to gross undermining of what Pep have achieved at Bayern.

I still consider MOU as one of the best short term manager , he failed to win CL with two of his best side yet he won it with lesser sides , twice , CL is a funny thing.

@Cannon, Glad you learn something from Chelsea fans , now i assume you will use Salty card whenever you don't have any solid argument to make.
Malik, lol its obvious you ll come across a top team in the semis and by the way to become the best you need to beat the best which they failed to do under pep's guidance. Sad but true. Look at this way, when pep took over them, they were the BEST TEAM in the world without a shadow of doubt and now look, when hes leaving where are they? 3rd at max. Teams have learnt his weaknesses. his away record against top teams prove this.
My thoughts on where Mahrez could possibly end up next season should he decide to leave Leicester.

If you look at his possible destinations considering he said he loves playing in england and joining psg doesn't excite him then arsenal could be a possibility with higher wages whilst still playing champions league next season and if we look at the other teams in europe who might be looking at him

- Arsenal = lacking quality in attack desperatly need a world class player like mahrez and he would play every game even if he had a dip in form
- Bayern = stacked
- Barca = stacked
- Real madrid = possible considering their track record of bringing in the current flavour of the month
- Man city = possible but another stacked club
- Juve = Is italy competitive enough to lure him from the premier league? i dont think so
- Tottenham = nah lol
- Atletico = can't see it happening just because of the way they work as a club with them hardly ever spending huge amounts of money on 1 player exception being jackson martinez xd

im just assuming he wants champions league football which is why im not taking into account united chelsea etc
he could always stay you know. He just won the EPL with Leicester so its not like he wants to play anywhere else atm.
+3
so one season and he is suddenly world class? What if he pulls a hazard? or a michu? Lel
Kappa no Keepo
+3
@cloudst "My thoughts on where Mahrez could possibly end up next season should he decide to leave Leicester." its just my opinion on his options if he decides to leave
@beebo How can you not consider him world class look at his stats and all his accomplishments this season he is 100% world class
World class is a title on a proven player for multiple years of sustaining a season such as the one Mahrez had...
+5
yeah i've said this before we use world class too loosely this days. Mahrez had a very good season and he's good footballer but he's not world class yet. If he can do it for 3-4 seasons then I'll consider it but for now lets see how he does in the upcoming seasons.
+2
Beebo. Hazard is world class. He's done good in more than one season even though his last season was his best.

2 possible things for that. One is he wants out of Chelsea. Or, he has been playing with an injury all season.
+2
yupppp...hence, we have to wait and see the multiple years...he has had a tremendous season and rightly so with all the plaudits but we shouldn't jump on the bandwagon too soon for wanting him at arsenal.
Even if we get kante...would mean one of elneny or coq getting lesser game time. (unless we are selling one of the two)
Plus we need to promote a bit more from our academy. Only way we are eventually going to get to barca level is having an academy like theirs.

I feel like if we are going to buy players we need someone right up there and then keep one of our current players and sell the third choice (and potentially promote from academy).
plus players like theo/ox/chambers havent been a byproduct of our academy and tbh they havent really lived up to the billing. ( and yes ox maybe has some time on his hands but will we be celebrating 10 years of the OX the same way we did for walnut? time will tell :P )

So i feel like we need to:
1) sell a few players before we even consider buying more
2) Buy wisely (people getting on the hype train need to realize its risky to buy every A,B,C player that has had a good 5-6 months)
3) Buy wisely (x2)
4) promote from academy ( I am sure we have a few more iwobis in there)
5) Buy wisely (x3)
+1
GSS :D the hazard one was banter mate xD I dont deny his class but i felt it fit the example here based on this season xD
+1
*slow poke I am.

I do agree with you everybody wants all the players without evening thinking the consequences should those players fail.

Having said that, Spurs were able to buy up a lot of players from the Bale money and with the right manager they're now positioned where they should've probably been a long time ago.

Yes the failed with a couple players, mainly the CM positions but I think with a good scouting network (second to none IMO) they are now setup to be dominant for years to come.

I'll say this, if we aquire at least 2 top class players ready to hit the ground running then we should be good. I do think we are aging in several positions though:

1. Santi
2. Per
3. Giroud
4. Risicky
5. Nacho

For the Santi position I believe we're covered with Elneny (hybrid Arteta and Santi), Jack, Iwobi (being groomed there) and Santi himself has at least a season and a half left in him. We can aquire from within.

I think we need a Per replacement and a Giroud replacement NOW. Possibly a Nacho replacement and ease him in maybe towards end of next season.

So by my count that's 3 players that needs to come in. Anything else we'll get from academy.
This season so far is an absolute definition of "money can't buy you glory ". Talent and hardwork still rule. Please Arsene don't read this.
+6
There are somethings that money cant buy...for everything else there is master card!!! xD
+1
Unless City win the CL
+2
It proves that this growingly senile Wenger can neither win through talent & hardwork, nor through money. During the early emirate years, we didn't have money so top 4 was all we could aim for. Then He said we can now compete with the rich clubs financially, yet we still finish 4th, UCL round of 16, and an occasional cup or two.
+2
so is simone gonna get banned for the final :P


Must be banned!!

4th official was kinda shitting himself ;D lol
that guys' name is Pedro Pablo Matesanz he works for athletico madrid. from metro:"Given that Matesanz works for Atletico and not UEFA, it is unlikely that Simeone will be handed a ban for the final but he’s certainly running a risk by acting like this on the sidelines."

That was hilarious, the dude was so confused at getting pushed. Honestly reminds me of this one:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frXlFqq5YEo
+2
Wow. Torres is really shite. Congrats to Atletico for being in the finals.

Well deserved and now Atletico's to lose.

On another note why on earth didn't we push harder for Friezmann.
+1
He rejected us because we insisted on calling him Friezmann.

;)
;)
+2
In his defense he has been scoring a lot lately and provided the assist today. He's alright imo.
+3
Did you watch him this season or are you basing this on that terrible penalty? He's been quite good for Atletico this season.
+8
well deserved?? I beg you differ
^I like Bayern but I rooted for the underdogs. Wouldn't mind even if Bayern went through.

But this season is the season of the underdogs except in Italy and France where not much really happens anyway.
+2
Also except in Germany. And in Switzerland. And Portugal.
+1
^ Switzerland you are really reaching there lol
+2
I know. I'm Swiss that's why :P
Bottom line is: Leicester clearly were but are Atletico still underdogs for anything?
+1
Lol. You're right. They're now favorites. Oh the irony.
Why would he want to club like ours we are only big in name and brand our football is 4th our tactic is 4th our manager is " 4th" and he think he is probably the best manager. lol
