If don't win against leichester i think we can pretty much say bye.
http://data.7m.cn/matches_data/92/en/get_miss.shtml

Amidst all the criticism our defence has been getting lately...we actually have the joint 2nd best defensive record in the league alongside Man united. We've only conceded 3 more goals than Tottenham who in my opinion have the best defence in the league at the moment.

Last year we had the 3rd best defensive record. Not bad.
Think we have the most clean sheets in the league
Well, just because others are doing badly does not mean we should be like them. I wudh we could concede less than 10 goals in the league all season because when we finally do that, we win the league without a doubt.

not here to troll but just wanted to illuminate you on this piece of news, as premier league clubs talk about necessary ticket price increases and meetings with cyber security companies to block illegal streaming of matches...

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3439501/Billionaire-NFL-owner-Walmart-heiress-wife-purchase-Texas-mega-ranch-listed-725million-bigger-Los-Angeles.html
Thanks for the heads up.

Firstly, you don't have to greet by saying 'no trolling'. I think we're all adults...or most of us. We all expect a proper conversation regardless of rivals or not.

Secondly, the greed is beyond ridiculous and because of that I believe the league and its bearers will eventually suffer for that - there's a bubble and as it expands the natural cause results in a burst.

Thirdly, I'm not surprised by these owners. They're vultures of the highest bidder. They do not love the club but money. And even though we slate Chelsea for having Roman hats off to him. The guy lost so much money investing and it's now he's seeing a good return. That's freekin admirable if ask me. Proof is in the pudding, the man loves that club. Can't say the same for Stan or the Glazers.

Fourthly, be prepared for a war between fans and their clubs. As inflation goes up and locals are priced out you'll see more of what happened during the Liverpool game with a walkout. But here's what's going to happen, you'll have stadiums filled with more tourists like Arsenal does which means less atmosphere. Yes, clubs will look at us as an example of how to seat fans but I don't think it'll be enough to combat that end.

The chosen rich people will always take the rest of us as suckers. Never liked a single one of them tbh.
Biggest football clubs in england are more like multinational corporations than your neighborhood club. The irony of this battle with fans is of course that fans want more and more competition in the transfer market (and on the pitch), but don't want the costs passed down to them. I'm not defending price hikes here, but if liverpool (and other) fans want the club to cater to their local fans and their affordability to go to games, the trade-off made should be acknowledged and kept in mind.

There are multiple reasons why the likes of Ozil and Sanchez play for Arsenal. One of them being massive matchday revenues (which were double that of liverpool last season if I'm not mistaken). Earning 50 million pounds more than your rival gives you a hand in negotiations.
+4
Can you imagine, in any other sphere of your life, that you will commit to supporting one monopolist through thick and thin, buying their overpriced products which are in any case not that different from what they were selling last year? What's more, you WANT the monopolist to make as much money as they possible can.

Yeah. Fandom is a very weird thing. No wonder these people are taking advantage.
+1
i have said this to my friends before and ill say it here now, i love tottenham for so many reasons, but i would stop supporting them if they became a monopoly like real madrid, barcelona, man u, chelsea, etc.

some people will take this meaning out of context but i am tottenham till i die, or until they sell out...
They stop being Spurs the minute it becomes money driven. Arsenal as well! The old Arsenal doesn't exist and I think on second thoughts I as a fan really should hold just one foot in the water and nothing more. I guess it's just the way the club plays that's more identifiable (at least within the past decade or so) than the name itself.

The badge though? It's like a flag, which still carries some meanings but that's really how far it gets. Bought and paid for by advertisers.

So, to all the Barca, Madrid, United, Juve and Arsenal supporters to name a few, does it really matter if your club is termed a BIG brand when you don't see a penny from it and the owners are really vultures that now owns that brand in which you wear and give them more money in THEIR fat pockets than Donald Trump? Then they turn around in a record year for money in the league (English teams) and still make plans on raising ticket prices?

My money belongs elsewhere other than that. I'd rather walk around in the city and give a dollar each to every homeless I see. Actually, I know people who'd like a 5 bucks to keep them afloat.

Priorities for the sake of a 90 minute entertainment then back to square one again. That's what's wrong with the world. But what the hell do I know.
If city and Spur tie and we won against Leichester that will be a very good weekend for me🤗🤗
If Arsenal - Leicester instead is the draw, who would you rather to win, City or Spurs?
draw. At this point, I think every point counts, and 2 total points for MCI/TOT is better than 3.
yeah but if ya HAD to choose..... ;P
Obviously city
Does that mean you are more worried about Spurs than about City?
I'd rather City win. I see City and Spurs as equal threats ATM and we have a good H2H against City recently. City are also one point behind with a worse GD than Spurs.

Henry with some harsh truths...damn.
Looking forward to the match against Leicester City. United are out of the title so I'm more focused on the teams that make up the top 4, its going to be a thriller this one! If Leicester can't win the title, I hope to God you guys will, can't stand seeing shitty win it this year
+3
I hope Metersacker doesn't start against Leicester City sunday, Vardy would have a field day with him.
+3
hope he only gets fa cup
+2
Slow and steady wins the race. Who cares if he's slow, he just has to be steady imo.
+4
Actually think Leicester like to play quick up to Mahrez and Vardy but that's usually through long through balls. If we don't push so high up, it might actually help to play Mertesacker rather than have 2 pacey CBs.
Can't just throw him back into the pits. But then again, he's one of the smartest defenders and his shortcomings may force Kos to be more on his p and q's.

Kos looses his head every once in a while in case you haven't noticed.
+1
Yeah, Kos pulls a Szczesny from time to time. Hopefully not against Leicester.
Actually if we decide to sit back, BFG in form could be a better option than Gabriel. Most of the job will have to be done in the midfield and the opposite half not to allow feeding those long balls to their pacey attack.
For that kinda marking Campbell has an edge over Ox. Maybe Theo over Giroud in attack for his speed to keep couple of defenders anchored.
Vladd. The issue is a weak midfield invites more pressure. I'm hoping Coq starts but if he does start we can't even bet whether him and Ramsey can pair. I think Arsene tried to mesh them before and it didn't work.
GSS, what other DM options do we have but Ramsey and Coq?
Arteta's days are over. Gibbs - not really his position, sub maybe to enforce defense if we win. Elneny, Bielik. - too soon for the game of this importance.
Flams - no way ... Who else ?
My vote is for speed. I watched the replay of them vs city last night and Drinkwater and Albrighton just launch the ball forward first or second touch the second they win the ball back. I think Vardy would have a field day with Mertesacker. He's declining noticeably @ 31. I still love him in our team but only up against the right opposition.
+2
Shaymoose, that's not how City conceded. 2 goals from set pieces and one (2nd) Zabaleta's fault - first he lost the ball at the other half and then walked back instead of running his shoes off. Poor defending, lack of marking discipline. Not really matter of speed.
Agree on Per in general - he's becoming a liability on a regular match day but once in a while, in a tactical game he could be a right man in the tight place.
Well if we want proper defending from set pieces I still think Mertesacker is better than Gabriel in terms of heading/marking.

It depends on our game plan, whether we choose to play possession on counter. I would also like to see Theo up front instead of Giroud but I'm a little worried about his form.
+1
Gabriel and Kos have no Chemistry but they only play together a few time so i think they will improve as time goes by. Gabriel is a lot faster than Mertasacker we need him in this pacey game.
+1
I will say I prefer mertesacker on the ball when we have possession. Gabby needs to clean up his passing from the back.

Vlad, I've been watching Leicester as much as I can this season and that's what they do to release Vardy into space.
+1
If at all we are playing BFG, then I would say, playing Le Coq is an absolute must as well. He is the best positionally sensible, reliable man we ve got in the midfield. Had enough of the positional non sense with Ramsey-Flamini combo.
+1
Now I'm thinking we may be able to get away with more pace than Merts.

Why? Because Leicester is a counter attacking team. They play direct and I think speed vs speed will nullify them.

My only concern is Huth who is great in the air.
^Giroud has to be the one who answers that. We need Gabriel against Leicester and Barca.
Not really when u think we zonal mark on corners and free kicks.
I think we will be on the front foot as the home side. Leicester will choose to sit deep and counter and that will invite our CBs to push up to half way. That is when the long ball counter will hurt.

If we're playing a high line, put Gabriel in.
If we're going to show Leicester respect and drop off then Mertesacker is preferable for his reading of the game and his defensive assistance at set pieces.
+1
We do have speed merits to compete with Leicester in open game,
but this will give them what they are looking for - long balls to Vardy and, almost certainly, goal/s and confidence.
Whichever tactics we chose - sit back and counter or dominate possession and attack- Vardy got to be marked all day long.
These are time when being a manager isn't so easy. Have to choose the right tactic and make sure your players go by it and also the right squad selection.
On Ramsey, I feel that most of the criticism he gets since replacing Santi in the middle isnt accurate. He does make the right choices. Against Bournemouth he created the first goal with a clever ball for Giroud at the far post and he gave the assist to Ox seconds later. He isnt as technical as Santi but he brings a lot of distribution as well.

I dont think our team cant be criticized, certainly Ox and Theo and even Gibbs could be showing more. But Rambo has been performing and adapting to the team's needs from day one this season. I struggle to understand how he's being criticized so much on here.
Tend to agree. His pro's are overwhelming. Couple of weak points, where he has to improve and, guess, he knows that.
As box to box player he has to not only track back but also to mark properly (he did not mark Yaya on City goal) and sometimes he is too greedy at the goal, hasty shooting instead of passing.
His critics may overlook the fact that he has had no decent and reliable partner at midfield lately, and that may be the reason that his performance did not appear flawless. Nonetheless he was MOTM twice recently for a reason.
He should stay in the center of things on Sunday, backed by Le Coq
Yeah Ramsey does so much for the team. I think the only reason we hate on him is because he doesn't have the stats so far this season and there are so many good players in and around his position. I'd think it's hard to find someone else who can play anywhere in midfield the way Ramsey does. He's a bit like Park Ji Sung for ManUtd IMO.
Remember that time we went to Leicester and Sanchez got a hat trick and we won 5-2? We should try that again this weekend.
+1
It was quite an open game. Leicester had not a confidence level, they do now. I would not try the same tactics, not even sure we should dominate possession. Maybe it is better to sit back, press high and tight, leaving them no space for long balls and quick counters, and counter ourselves. Wothink?
Sanchez not only scored 3 goals, but he also put in a defensive shift to help Monreal completely take Mahrez out of that game.
glad we won that game, and yeah the foxes were just about to get started that time, but we played our best and won. we better win it this sunday haha xD
It'll be interesting because both teams have what it takes to hit on the counter. Which manager will choose to sit back and which will choose to attack?
