Zomg!! Only 3-0???? 42.5mil for a player and he only gets 1 goal 1 assist? Sell Ozil already, get us a real playmaker...
Welbeck only scored once? Man Ian Wright would've got a hattrick at least, sell him too.
We did better without Wilshere in the middle, sell him as well, as for Ramsey he didn't even get an assist, sell him as well and get us some real players!!! We're Arsenal ffs we want world class players on the bench and on the pitch, spend some money!!!

Wenger out, the guy's got no clue. Now excuse me while I go be the worst kind of fan and having finally won a match I can stop slagging off the team and go back to heaping praise, bragging and laughing at my rivals when they lose.

lol
U had me at zomg!! ahaha
So what team against Southampton, I wouldn't play Chambers because I believe if he gets one more yellow he's suspended for the Totenham game correct me if I'm mistaken.

Ospina
Bellerin Hayden Mert/Kos Monreal/Gibbs
Flamini Wilshere
Ox Rosa Poldi
Sanchez/Sanogo
Might work simply cos Ox is on the RW. Problem with Bellerin is that like Debuchy, he sits further forward than Chambers(who held back) and that means there's space for runs in behind which didn't exist with Sagna playing defensively. The Ox might help simply cos he requires less assistance going forwards and therefore the fullback might not bomb forward as often. This is what Wenger's been experimenting with preventing with this flatter formation squeezing the defensive lines closer together.

I think Rosa's more of a super sub these days(getting old) and Poldi is never going yo get the nod due to his poor training performances. Sanchez up front sounds good. Midfield pairing seems a bit aggressive, Flamini hasn't been tracking back very well lately. Just my thoughts though.
Our fullbacks bombing forward at every opportunity has cost us alot the past few games, today with Chambers we looked more assured and stable there because he attacked at the right times and was disciplined in his defensive performance bar some rash descisions which I expect him to learn from of course. Ox as you mentioned doesn't need much assistance as to Sanchez who's more of a hug the ball type of player and he needs runners across him to open some space and that's where the problem lies because if the play doesn't work out we're caught on the counter. That's something Arsene needs to sort and I'm sure he's already got the solution in Walcott.

As to playing the likes of Rosa, Poldi and Flamini it's basically keeping the team fresh, fit and happy. We've lost many key players because of AW being stubborn in regards to rotation.
My god we agreed on something lol :) Yeh Chambers helped a lot but the yellow cards are a worry with big games looming. I wish we'd recall Jenkinson but not sure if we're allowed to. I'm a huge fan of Rosa but I think he's a super sub these days unless it's against Spurs lol :D Biggest worry for me is that Arteta doesn't seem to have the legs he had last season, might need Flamini alongside Ramsey for the middle. Ramsey can rotate with Wilshere but cover for Flamini might be an issue. And yes I think Walcott will help a great deal with not exposing our fullbacks.
I thought it was 10 yellows for a suspension btw?
I wrote something on the Pool forum comparing the aging Gerard to the aging Arteta. Both have similar ball destribution and play similar positions while being older. The problem with Liverpool is they have a bad defense as opposed to us where we at least have a good pairing that can eventually mop up some of the short comings in the middle (defensively).

Their attack is slightly deadlier than ours because of the extra speed they have on the wings. They also have better finishers. We do have similar playing styles though we're changing tactics so I'm wondering who has the better chance in surviving the drop from top 4.
+1
Arsenal have much better chance than Liverpool, not being bias but look at our midfielders. When we have: Giroud, Welbeck, Alexis, Ox, Walcott, Ozil, Wilshere, Ramsey, Santi, Arteta, Rosicky, etc. all fit, at once.

I still believe we can reach top 4, Liverpool have spent their 100m or so money on average players, I don't see them making it into top 4(especially with FA Cup/CL/Cup games), they reminds me of the Liverpool a couple of years back, not the liverpool with Suarez.
Why do you assume one of us will drop from the top 4?
+1
I see both making top 4, it's too soon for United with all the rebuilding they're doing. They will be a strong side in a year or two though, then there'll be 5 teams competing for 4 spots.
Liverpool? on this form? please.
Yeh write them off after 5 games in, that's what most of them are doing. United are still gelling, consistency will be tough. One big advantage you have is no CL.
It seems that we play better with either wilshere or Ramsey, When they play together something gets off with the balance of our team. Cazorla is immense in possession and takes so much pressure off of the defense. He needs to start, I would still love to see Campbell get some game time.
Did sanchez pick up an injury..or we're we just saving him for Soton:p
He's fine, got a much needed rest.
on Alexis Sanchez…
Sanchez was rested today and of course he was completely available. -Wenger
+1
He puts in 1,000% every game so he certainly deserved a rest
+1
Lol, we've come a long way if we're now able to rest one of our star players and still win a match.
+1
I enjoy watching Alexis, but finally Wilshere and Alexis got some rest, I want to see Ramsey and Ozil get some rest on Tuesday.
Borussia Dortmund are so inconsistent.Completely owned us on Tuesday and they lost today against Mainz. Having said that they're also missing some big players through injuries.
+1
and they had a huge advantage, they could focus more on our game than we could due to facing city just before..If it wasn't for the city factor that game would have been a lot more even
Honestly, I don't think they played badly. On a different day, they could have won by a mile.

Their pressing game was still in ful effect, created far more chances, more possession and still covered more ground as per usual.
statistically we outplayed them, failed to score the goals though. The missed penalty and the 2 woodwork hits should have done the job... it's just one of those days. Considering subotic, hummels, sahin, gündogan, reus, Kehl, Kuba couldn't play tonight and Immobile and mkhitaryan coming off the bench, the team did a pretty good job.

we'll beat Stuttgart mid week hopefully :)

and congratz on the win today, those 6 minutes were amazing. Glad to see Özil smile and getting confident again.

Awe Stevee we miss u so much :)
No injuries, it's a miracle.
+2
LMFAO Liverpool in Worst form than us!!!
+6
Our form is not bad at all..people just went over the top against Dortmund..Before that we we're unbeaten in 7..we've just struggled with back to back wins cause of all the mid-week games we've had to play so far
What the hell? people were complaining from the very beginning and asking for the world. And now, gloating over a win? As always, we fans are rhe wprst thing for the club. Seriously?
+2
Our form isn't that bad honestly, still on course for another invincible campaign.
Lol back to 4th place again :P

Anyways, it was a great win nevertheless, and a good one for a the best reasons. Huge confidence boosts for Ozil and Welbeck. On to the next game against Soton. Ospina's debut game ?
u mean league cup ?
spurs **
Nope, Southampton Diontan.
Forever 4th
After doing well today, I don't see Tex being dropped.
Yess!! 3-1 to West ham! XD
