Mash-up of one and two with some old add ons:(
Guys, would appreciate if we kept this out of the forums.
@Peter, seriously we don't want to know each time you increment your count.

Thanks,

Here's a game, name 3 English first teamers for Chelsea and for Manchester city.

Too soon?

+1
Lampard forever a city legend 👌

Gunnzo, that was on purpose ^^ :D
Funny thing, last night i had a dream that Lampard joined us and scored against Chelsea...

Wenger will update us tonight..
Shady Goal Line Technology.. I think they froze the position of the ball bit early. Looks like a goal to me :(

Little more research and found this video clip. It was not a goal. Okie I take that back.

It definitely wasn't a goal but yeah, they f****d up with the position they froze it at and that always puts a worry in your mind.
Would love to see them use the goal line technology view for the duration of that entire play, not just the first save from Lloris.
For real, StageFright. I was expecting a longer simulation on the GLT camera and felt we were robbed b/c I thought it was a goal initially.
Same here...wasn't fair what they did to us..It looked like it just crept in when Lloris pushed it away the second time
So I am starting to think blaming all these injuries on our medical team is too simplistic. Our players have changed, our medical team has changed and yet we still have ridiculous numbers of injuries. I don't think it's possible to have inherently fragile players, I think it comes down to how we play and how other teams combat that. We like to hold on to the ball, and as we've seen with jack that invites A LOT of tackles. I also think other managers tell their players the trick to beating us is being extra physical so I have my suspicion that teams go even harder into tackles against us than normal, hence our shocking numbers of gruesome leg breaks and other serious injuries
The issues go way deeper than that. I'm inclined to blame the medical team especially after Barca managed to fix an injury prone Messi through strict dietary and physical training of some sort. Full marks to the guys who fixed Messi, now we need some of that brilliance in terms of fixing. It's not as if Messi doesn't take the same kind of tackles our players do. It's definitely a medical issue imo.
+3
I partly agree with Gunnzo, and IMO LGW reconfirms the idea that fans make it seem so simplistic (to blame the medical team).

When fans say medical, do they include the strength & conditioning, physiotherapy, psychology, coaching, and nutrition teams?

If fans think a super medical team is all it takes to rehab and prevent players from injury, then there is no point in having this debate, because you're debating with fans who accept a different reality when it comes to sports organisations.

For me it goes deeper, as it is a combination of our style of play, the league we play in, the better job of ALL departments in Arsenal need to do, and the culture in the league that the sure fire way to beat Arsenal is to be physical.
+1
I think I said this about 2 months back, medical team is the easier target. How we play is one, tactics is the other and the other cause is just simply players get injuries all the time.
+1
A lot of it is how we play, often teams kick the s**t out of us because it's their only chance.
+2
we're we blaming the medical team when they fixed RVP:p

I've said this for years..the problem is how teams set up against us..So many times i've seen opposition managers make gestures to go in harder from the sidelines. I think they feel like if they keep fouling us, it slows our tempo. And if they keep going in hard, players are more inclined to play their triangles in safer areas rather than the edge of the box..or and less dribbles are attempted
guys is it true that ramsey is out for 6 weeks.?
Lol i'm trying to sell him from dreamfooty before champion's league but i can't open a emergency window until this free one closes!!! i cant sell him during the free one because i have already made 4 changes.
That's what physioroom says...
I guess Ox is gonna have to play in the middle at some point. Im ok with that as long as we are direct and let him power his way from defence to attack quickly
+1
Ox had an amazing game last season playing the Ramsey role against crystal palace
“I think that’s the risk you take when you play the way we play football – we send a lot of bodies forward in a positive and attacking fashion. You do leave yourself, at times, a little bit vulnerable to the counter-attack.

“As a team we do work on trying to stop that at source. Sometimes you do get countered and I think teams maybe set up to do that against us. But, as I said, you can’t have everything. You either don’t send so many bodies forward or you do, and sometimes you can be susceptible to the counter-attack."

“We try to take control of games, we like to set the tempo, be positive and that sometimes means sending bodies forward.

“It’s just important that when we do, we have got people in the team that are willing to take the responsibility of holding back and being there to stop the counter-attacks."

- Ox

http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/12040/9494833/premier-league-alex-oxlade-chamberlain-says-arsenal-have-point-to-prove-at-chelsea
the bit I found most pertinent was that the boys clearly know that teams will set up defensively to counter-attack against us.

We cannot afford to make mistakes. If we are going to insist on playing this passing game, then we have to get it absolutely right.

When we conceded 5-6 goals against City/Chelsea/Liverpool last season it was because we gifted them possession in dangerous areas. They punished our mistakes, so we have to make sure we don't make mistakes.

I hope we get the balance right between attack and defence, because when it works, it looks beautiful. When it goes wrong, it goes disastrously wrong.
The problem is we don't have the 'proper' holding player to stem a counter attack against us. Teta, too slow. Flames, too slow and unstable while losing his man. Jack, too forward minded, small and still gets pushed over.
+1
We're giving Chelsea a hiding..Wenger's revenge begins, you heard it here first:p
+1
There's a difference between confidence and overconfidence. This current team, system and injuries warrant no confidence from me at the present time. I hope this changes but I can't see anything less than a drubbing. And I'm saying this while painfully clinching my fist :(.
+10
yeah a hardcore drubbing to chelsea in their own home....ok realistically i think our best chances without ramsey or wilshere and the other mugs..will be a 1-0 or 2-1..but whoever we play in midfield will have to drop deep...Their not winning the midfield battle..Hoping we hit them with enough effective counters to outscore them
can't remember who said it a few days ago, but its very obvious how the game will play out. We will try to control possession and play our passing game. Chelsea will wait for us to c**k it up ourselves and counter us with pace. We've seen it many times before.

I would like us to try to be more direct and not waste time playing Wengerball in this game. I would rather sacrifice possession and passing stats for the sake of someone running at John Terry (the second fastest CB in the league, behind Merts) and making something happen.

Let Ox and Sanchez attack that back line. They might lose the ball, but its better than losing it when the entire team is high up playing tiki-taka around their box. They might beat their man and either draw a foul or get a shot off on goal.
+1
Hey Deffy, I too would like us to forget about our regular playing style but let's simply put it this way, we aren't a team who can soak up pressure.

Also, if you looked back at last year's tactics we used agains Chelsea at home we did actually try to soak up the pressure in the first few minutes but we got found out in the back and immediately went 2 goals down.

What that lead is to do was to actually begin chasing the game, we obviously know what went next.

I can honestly say I have no clue how to lineup against them this year since we've been so hit by injuries. Arsene should've given Rosa a few chances now we maybe playing him in the line of fire because of injuries.? I don't think that's fair on him who btw will begin to take the blame if he's ever to make mistakes because of his lack of form from lack of game time.
Hope wenger gives JC a chance against Gala..i think if he put that much faith in him to start such a match it will really help him prove he should be ahead of Podolski
