Filsuf made an awesome point about Arsenal's fluency that I HAVE to endorse. I like these kind of discussions because we all can actually see it improving as the season progresses just like the squad does and Wenger puts his everything into it based off of what I have always seen which makes it super interesting and fun once we attain that proper momentum.

He doesn't have the opportunity to rotate frequently because we haven't reached the level yet this season where the majority of the squad defend and attack with quality regardless of rotation. They are key players with experience that know what it takes like Sanchez, Welbeck, Diaby, Theo, Merts and Debuchy (I really miss him in the squad right now) but what i'm extremely pleased about is seeing Gibbs finally reaching that level of maturity too. He's the key as long as he stays fit imo to assist in unlocking the rest of the young gunz' top form because he has a big influence on that fluency that I also want to add value to... as a fan of course :)

Once players like Campbell, the Ox, Jack, Ramsey, Chambers, Gnabry and Bellerin start to catch the same vibe Gibbs is flowing with then we'll certainly see a top Arsenal team. Rotation is very difficult with the system we play if we can't reach that level... definitely hope Nov is the month it happens, it's my fav month of the yr too :D
That video of the Ox up there talking with Laurent is hilarious

Great news, Walcott to return next week against Burnley, hopefully it's a home game so he gets the best welcoming possible. Also if Diaby ever did return our team would look unbelievable.

Szchesny
Chambers Mert Kos Gibbs
Diaby Ramsey
Walcott Cazorla Sanchez
Welbeck

Hopefully we can see this team I'm the coming weeks.
good... not unbelievable
Well it definitely has the potential.
Diaby will stub a toe and break his leg.

Nah, he'll prick his finger on a blade of grass thus getting an ACL injury.

http://www.arsenalreport.com/ix/misfortune-myth-or-neglect-arsenals-injury-problems-investigated/

This is an old article investigating Arsenal's injury paradox. Really insightful article thoroughly examining the problem statistically and holistically. I have to accept his theory, hands down.
Read that article a while back...This is the reason every time people bring up injuries i tell them look no further than the approaches coaches of other teams use against us..
In truth imo,the main reason for our injuries is bad tackles from opposition teams and poor rotation by wenger, look how long it takes him to make a substitution, most times a sub is only made when our player is injured, wenger does not rest the players enough. Tell me what is the purpose of having a big squad like ours and players keep warming the bench, we use our starters against big teams and against small teams, other top clubs mix it up, u can always predict our line up down to a Tee, hardly is there any surprise.
+1
Let's talk Europa for a bit

I think England has a good chance of winning it. English teams are dominating their groups and tbf i think one of the UCl teams will end up in Europa, Man city or Liverpool..This is great next season we could see 5 English teams in the UCL
+1
Wonder how Jenkinson is feeling these days lol
You know if we plan to use Chambers more as a Cb than Rb in the future. CJ still has a big chance with us. Right now his main competition is Bellerin
i love the idea of chambers in the middle and CJ/bellering fighting for the RB spot.

hell this is arsenal, they dont have to fight for the spot. one of them will somehow injures himself to accommodate the other one and when the 2nd player recovers, it's time for the first player to injures hmself. that's how we do. that's how arsenal work! lol
Best Jersey Ad I've seen so far. This is sick

if only the shirts really did that O.o

I'm starting to like Merts' "honest" quality more and more, his 'str8 up-ness' is like a blessing to the squad because he has shiny credentials like most pundits and even more than some plus he's one of the captains... his twitter take over is pretty decent too :)
Hey guys I was wondering, is their a reason why Campbell hasn't featured as much so far, Is he injured?

The reason I'm asking is because I really thought that this was maybe going to be his break out season of some sorts,
considering the insane World Cup he's had and that he looked good in pre-season, but that hasn't been the case.

Your response would be much appreciated.
+1
i think Mertersaker has been putting a finger on it recently. Campbell is just realising how hardcore it is to be consistent and efficient for Arsenal, and he wasn't at the right level at the start of the season but he's actually getting there now imo, we should see more of him soon.
+2
You would think he get run games after an insane world cup, but go figure, i can't wrap my head around y he is not getting a run of games. Sanogo is hurt, Giroud is hurt, poldiski is barely on the field, welbeck and sanchez are getting overplayed, yet no Joel?????, what is wengers excuse, we are struggling to be clinical in front of goal, y not try something new? but by now u should know how inflexible our coach is, we might just have to wait for another major injury maybe to sanchez or welbeck or in the FA cup b4 u c him get a chance.
+5
a lot of users here, myself included, have noticed that JC loses the ball with alarming frequency. He often tries too hard, I feel. He tries to dribble past one man too many and ends up conceding possession cheaply. Considering out mantra is to try and control possession, he doesn't suit the style.

I see him being an impact sub for the immediate future, he is a great guy to throw on when you're chasing a game because he is a risk taker. When you're already losing you take those risks. However, when the game is finely balanced, you don't want to see him try and dribble past the likes of Hazard, Matic, and Azpilicuete when the score is 0-0, because you'll get murdered on the counter.
@deffyduck Really two games and he is loosing the ball with alarming frequency huh??, first game 24mins, second game 25 mins, what about wishere, what about santi, what about ozil, what about sanchez, what about ramsey, and what about ox, all this guys i have being loosing the ball with alarming frequency and conceding possession cheaply since the start of the season, am sorry i don't buy this loosing ball argument, just from total 49mins of play, no offense i think u might be looking for an excuse to discredit his playing time, imo he is not an impact sub, from his great performance in the world cup, he has earned his right to at least prove himself at arsenal, it is left for wenger to give him a shot.
+4
I still say it must be attitude in training, that was the original reason we loaned him out. I think the World Cup must've taken a bit out of him and that's the reason for a lesser effort in training. I'd like to see him start one match, purely so that people can see that he won't stand out as much when he's playing 90 mins instead of 25. Plus the other factor is that his best position is as a secondary striker which doesn't really fit in the team right now. He's here at Arsenal cos it's nice to have some depth in the squad and he was free, I don't think he was intended to feature heavily this season.
+1
When the team is struggling with fluency in attack, rotating players will further break up what little fluency we have. That's how Wenger looks at it. He sticks to the same players and formation until there's a proper balance and fluency to the game before he starts rotating players.

But still, regardless of that, Campbell is still not first team material. He's an impact sub for now, along with Ox, Podolski, Rosicky, etc. Jumping from an impact sub to becoming first team member is a big big leap -- as you can see with how average Ox plays whenever he's in the starting 11.

Santi, Sanchez and Welbeck are still far far superior in experience and quality, and even then they might be dropped once Giroud, Ozil and Walcott comes back! Let alone Campbell!
+2
@ Philosophy, I'm not just talking about his Arsenal appearances. I'm talking about games for Olympiakos and Costa Rica, too.
