"Analyzing the network of passes between soccer players reveals that one of the world’s most successful teams plays an entirely different type of football to every other soccer team on the planet." Some of you may find it interesting. It doesn't take a study to see that Barca has a style of its own but it's interesting nonetheless.

What do u guys think about starting nacho on the left and Gibbs on the right? Or vice versa? Could leave calum as a backup to both rb and cb positions, and I guess if one gets injured slide him over and bring in bellerin
Hahahah. Dude, Nacho is so one footed you would never see him get a cross in. That's suicidal lol.
Bringing in some positivity to the forum this week.

So I had a job interview today while being interviewed by 5 people people. Creative Directors, VP and HR.

I had a bad run in with HR before and she kept peppering me with horrible questions so I realized I wasn't gonna get the job so I told her to Fack off and left.

Best feeling in my life.

Maybe it was a test and all interview participants were given a hard time on purpose?
You tell them Godspeedysick!

for what position? :-D

good luck yo!
Hahaha, power to you bro, don't take s**t from nobody.

I really like how everyone is boiling up in anger. Rage on Ozil performance ! Rage that Wenger is 'the Wrong'.

*fence sitters*

We've got to start getting results though, Villa and Spurs are our next two and those will both be tough, an away trip to a dangerous looking Villa and the NLD. 4 points from that isn't the worst to be honest, people will settle down if we take 6. Chelsea come soon afterwards as well.
+2
show some class for fucks sake gunners of footytube. really, sell ozil ?

@dougs: true that, hope we get to a winning start against villa. also a win in NLD derby will be a huge help

remember that season we where trailing 10 points against spurs, and beat them 5-2, later on over took them at 4th. we could really use some spark like that.

never forget who we are, Gunners, pure red.

Sell Ozil? Have you lot run mad? Try counter attacks ffs, we'll see the best out of not only Ozil, but all our players.
I just remembered something. I heard the former AC milan coach and Brazilian, Leonardo talk about Ronaldinho during some football commentry once, that his form dipped right after winning everything there is to be won. Leonardo said sumn like it was real hard for him to deal with that much pressure like it would for anyone else especially after catapolting to such stardom at that time. He had constant expectations weighing on his shoulders especially from Brazillians in general so I think we can ease up a bit on Ozil and Wenger too. He just won the world cup, he's still young so he can also add more to his game and I certainly dont want him to peak anytime soon 'cause i'd love to see him near to ronaldinho's level :D jus sayin
He's 26 next month, players tend to reach their peak at 27 or 28, maybe earlier than that so he's got to get back on track. I don't understand why he's being played out of position, clearly there's a reason but I can't figure out what it is.
Its all good dougie, he'll step up at the right time... barring the injuries ofcourse :p

This helped to remind me of his potential amongst others plus he can score much more too:

I dont like to see oz on the wing, he is not comfortable at all in that position. I dont understand why keeping him there. A manager need to act in the present not in the future, things is not working for him on the wing.so rather to put him in the middle, and make way to cazorla who is more lively there. Moreover, after the world cup campbell had, he has still not been evolved in first team match "Leicester match was an opportunity for him".. For the mancity game, its clearly arsene fault keeping ozil and not consolidating our defensive option in the last 15-10mins.. Tactics errors and wrong resource management is being made since the beginning of the season. Have you seen how mou/pelegrini deal with player. if the given player is playing s**t, he is removed ex Lampard against arsenal and Hazard last year when he was reluctant to defend.. Mou force him to do what he wanted, he need to obey.In that way you give more discipline to a player and team overall. I dont say we need to shot down our own player in front of media but when they are s**t, they need to give way. Being lenient is good, being tooooooooo lenient is not good..

Why don't we try to post some constructive criticism and strategies for coping with our injuries/poor form instead of this depressing downward spiral of negativity
+1
lol Gunzzo, why would we want to do anything as rational as that? ;-)
+2
I'm not even negative at all, can't see why others would be. It's Dortmund we lost to, and City we drew against. It's not as if it's Crystal Palace or Stoke or anything like that. We drew against a really good team; and lost against another really good team. Sure, our performance wasn't good at all, but there's room for improvement. It takes time for the players to get used to one another.
Form is temporary. The fact that we are in pretty bad form right now and still managed late game goals against cp and Everton are good examples of grinding out the points. Undoubtedly, we will get going soon and find that groove from last season and I bet we'll be thankful for the salvaged points in those games. Remember, still undefeated! ;)
+1
I thought after last season we would improve our big game performances, particularly away from home. Even if we didn't win I expected a competitive game.

Im not being negative, Im just looking at things from a competitive nature. I hate to lose, and I really hate to lose badly. How are the players not embarassed after these performances? As a big team, how are you constantly getting man-handled so easily?

I would be furious at myself and my team if I were an Arsenal player after that Dortmund game.

Good point Gunnzo. Ozil is my example from that point, he's a lil bit out of shape, played a couple hardcore games since he came back from the WC, one assist or a goal soon and his form will get better as long as he stays fit. I also want him to pay attention to how the british play too, they are more aggressive and he could learn from dudes like rooney, jack or even milner... Maybe it could help him to prevent injuries plus they hustle and create. His work rate is too low and we need him. I didn't mind that we never got cesc back either, I wanna see Ozil shine.
@Gunnzo - absolutely right. We've not got out of 2nd gear yet, there is much more to come. Scraping points when you didn't play well was labelled as "the mark of champions" whenever Utd used to it under Fergie.

@GnR - I agree, they should be furious, it was a dismal performance across the pitch. But take solace in the fact that that was pretty much the worst we can do. The team will do much better than that, just wait and see.
If we'd just play counter attacking football. We'd definitely win the treble. I really can't see a single team in the world beating our pacy players with Ozil's and Alexis' intelligence.
+2
Arteta acknowledged after the game that we wanted to play differently to out dortmund off their game, but that we played straight into their hands. I like that he didn't try to fluff up a dismal performance, he just said we tried something, and it didn't work, let's see how dortmund do at our home
I believe there will come a time where Jack will be as good as Ramsey, at least in terms of productivity, and Wenger will be forced to sell one of the players. I think he would rather sell Özil before either because honestly it looks like he has admitted defeat by playing him on the flanks. The prem doesnt suit him, Arsenal doesnt suit him, and its just hard to overlook his lack of commitment on the pitch. We massively overpaid for him, but doesn't mean we have to keep doing this to him or ourselves. I hope from now on Wenger picks a more functioning team. Even it means dropping his 42.5m dollar darling until he finds some kind of form.
+2
lol, so you totally gave up on Ozil. great, the next time he shines in full limelight dont even bother coming back here.


support the players, support the club and most importantly support the manager. is it that difficult ??!
*throws the sausage* !
I disagree selling ozil, he is class and IMO he is being utilized wrongly (kagawa's case).

I support the CLUB, but i can't always support players and manager that can't perform. Etc, andre santos, bendtner, gervinho, squid and blah blah blah.

If those players who are not performing keep on playing for the club, then the club will fall. simple as that, and of course it's manager's decision to play those players. It's just an example, not direct on any players and manager now.

Everyone whine when we concede goals, and players are blamed by many users here when we lose (included those who are accusing others being negative, scroll back and look back with all the comments), so don't be hypocrite. Try not to blame anyone now, just hope for the players and manager to wake up from their mistake and get their feet on.

Open letter from an Arsenal fan: MUST READ!
I agree with him, not signing any defensive cover (apart from replacements) and CDM during the transfer window was suicidal..

Spot on, perfect assessment on Wenger.
bernat from bayern is an incredible player! it's surprising I've never heard of him, he's really young too and he put in quite a shift yesterday.
