“When we won the league at Tottenham, they came back 2-2 in the last-minute of the game, and they’re celebrating – because they’re happy to draw against us, obviously. And I remember saying to Mauricio Tarricco, do you realise we only need a point to be Champions? And they all [were really shocked]. So I said ‘Yes. Now we’re going to celebrate on your pitch. Bye bye!'”
Thierry Henry on winning the league at White Hart Lane
When a player of Henry's ilk talks Spurs and even throwing a bit of a jab it's a sign of respect. Why I say that? Imagine an Arsenal player not even thinking the team exists in the first place. Wouldn't that mean the ultimate disrespect?

I'd even go as far as saying Tottenham is like a little brother who's sometimes annoying but at the end of the day it's all banter with the exception of a few idiots who take it personally. And yes it goes both ways...

However, to put it all into perspective, life is weighs far greater importance than any club, without life there's no club. Would you give your life to save a club? Only those who don't know the meaning of priorities being set right.
Was footytube down??
Yes it was down
It's a Wengerful Life!
hahahaha wat?

That last scenario would be a nightmare.

A win will take us to 4th, with 2 points from United.

3rd straight win? come on gunners!
+1
It's still only Thursday, this week has been so slow!

Hopefully we can take the full three points, as we should. Going into the Christmas fixtures, especially when we have a trip to West Ham, this would be a massive result for us.
we play villa a day before you play liverpool. we could be 8 points clear before your kickoff.
@SIF...dont jinx it mate...:|
Yep, you could be. On the other hand, you could not be. We'll see, United can't get as lucky as they've been recently forever.
+1
not sure luck's gpt anything to do with it, we've been clinical, and de gea is in form. if you want to talk about unlucky, look at the injuries we have had this season 45 from 16 games is absurd. once we get some more players back, im sure the performances will improve.
+2
We've had very bad injuries as well mate.
Don't kid yourself mate, you have been extremely lucky.
Fabian Schar, age 21 from Basel. Looks a real prospect and an Arsene type of CB. He's quick, has good recovery, smart on the ball and very good in the air. However, the main thing that should out for me is his ability to pass from the back, whether short or long balls, he has that in him.

He's the complete/modern game defender.

I don't know if we're after him but I'd take him in a hot beat.
His contract expires at the end of the season too I'm pretty sure.
+1
Then January is a possibility for us to get him.

How much do you think Basel want?
The guy reminds me of Bonucci of Juventus, watched a few of Basel's UCL games and boy can he get assists from the CB position and is dangerous on set pieces. Not only that he commands the box and gets players organized and plays like a leader. He might need time to adjust but what a steal signing he would be considering his going to very cheap.

He can't be more then 10mil
+1
What about injuries?

Age 21? 10 million? yeah sounds like Arsenal type. lol
doubt he'd go in Jan considering Basel are in the last 16's of the CL. Nastatic in Jan for me if we are looking for a CB.
But he isn't signing new contract with Basel and most rumours are linking him with arsenal
There's a 30 minute video of Ramsey you guys need to see. It's an interview where he talks about video games, who's the best video game player, who's his ultimate 11 (some surprises), who's the most annoying person in the dressing room, which team he uses in the video game, how the name 'Rambo' came about, who's the quickest/slowest player at Arsenal, who's the most difficult player he played against, did he consider Rugby b4 football, his relationship with Gareth Bale, who's the worst dressed player, etc.

It's a real good interview located at the top of the screen. Cheers.

I do not see it man, just post the link next time anyways, now ive gots to go find it meself. I cant find it though, if you have the link, mind posting it?
Go to video section of the page then click more videos located at the bottom right. The vid action usually gets updated daily so the older videos gets pushed down respectively...sort of like how the forum pages work.
01 Szczesny
03 Sagna
17 Monreal (Gibbs - 61' )
10 Wilshere Booked
04 Mertesacker
06 Koscielny
15 Oxlade-Chamberlain
08 Arteta
12 Giroud Booked (Podolski - 60' )
11 Özil (Rosicky - 61' )
19 Cazorla

This was the line up that got thrashed at antfield 5-1 wow, what can we say, they beat a strong lineup there is no excuse, the midfield offered no protection at all in that game, thanks to ozil, wishere and arteta, probably ox as well and unfortunately we still have the same defensive issues in the midfield, we have improved a little, but it is still there. We have to approach the game with caution, and take our chances, it is going to be tough, we shouldn't get carried away bcos they don't have sturridge and balotelli, i am expecting the high press, lot of fouls to disrupt play, and of the course the main course of counter attack, with sterling looking to break on us each time we are deep in their half.
+1
They were also flying high on confidence when we played them and honestly played one of their best games of the season when they beat us. We also beat them twice last season, though nothing like that 5-1 thrashing
if we have welbeck and alexis upfront, they cant press us to deny the space. That will help and not being sh*t as well.
No more Suarez as well. Apart from Sterling's pace not much to worry about. Plus i think we have a better squad atm than the squad that played them last time. Anfield has never been a place that's overwhelmed us like O.T and Some Bridge.
Peter how is it possible that we have a better squad now than we did then?

The team that went into Anfield was top of the league and the only real notable injuries we had at that stage were Aaron and Theo.

Not only are they both out again (unless Theo makes the bench at the last minute), but we're now missing Koscielny, Ozil, Arteta and Wilshere among others. There's no way that this squad we have at the moment is close to being better.

That being said, I like our chances at Anfield. We're picking up form and aside from Stoke, we've generally played well in recent weeks. Liverpool are at an all time low at the moment.
+3
Sanchez and welbeck add more going forward. With the exception of bac and koscielny who had some injuries that we're forcing bac to cb. Ozil was struggling in big games without players like walcott or ramsey. We're not that much better though cause of the defense. Just more or less the same only stronger upfront with players who will not leave Giroud isolated.
ROFL it's not going to be even remotely the same. Anyone who can't see what Liverpool are lacking compared to last season has rocks in their head. And no, I'm not talking about Suarez.
+1
^^They are lacking in every area in every possible position in the pitch lmao

The fact that we didn't have enough attacking power and lack of protection in the midfield to protect the back 4, they trashed us 5-1.

Teams are having to worry about Sanchez, along with Ox, Welbeck and Giroud that they can't press or push up as much as they can like last season.

I hope Liverpool press high and push up, which will leave their back unstable and Sanchez does what he does best.

@Dougie27 I think we're definitely stronger than them this season, physically as well as mentally. Its up to us to capitalize our chances and put the game away as fast as we can.
It's simpler than that, they're missing a concerted effort from the front 3. Forget the skill level, it's the energy level up front that Sterling, Suarez and Sturridge had. The 3 of them pressed more effectively than any other attacking force in the league resulting in teams losing possession in their own half for quick counters. Without that, teams are able to keep the ball and attack, exposing the midfield and defense for what it is - not very good. Last season that pressure made sure the rest of the team weren't tested, the first 70 minutes of matches, their energy levels and hard pressing won the match for them.

Why else do you think we managed to make them look ordinary at the Emirates by keeping possession?
^Bingo, Zilch. They didn't just do it to us, they did it to lots of teams.

If you press high and win the ball back in your opponents third, you're already behind their midfield and running at an exposed defence.

Our failure last season was that we didn't cope with their pressure. We weren't composed and we gave the ball away in dangerous areas.

This year, instead of Sturridge/Suarez/Sterling their frontmen are Lambert/Balotelli/Sterling. I doubt they'll be able to maintain a concerted effort pressing from the front like last year.

Pressing is a team effort. One man can't do it alone. Dortmund are perfect examples of how a team can pressure opponents (and even England did it effectively in their last few qualifiers), it requires everyone in tandem.

I think this will be nothing like the 5-1 of last season.

Watch out for the little kid's Aguero Imitation
Balotelli to miss Sunday's clash with Arsenal after beings handed a one match ban for racial incident.

- Talksport.

Well, he was pretty good at United so I think we're most fortunate to not play against him. On another note Liverpool will either use Sterling up front or Lambert. The problem with Lambert is he's strong in the air so if we can cut off the supply line putting in crosses that would do us a world of good.
+1
Well according to Rodgers, Sterling is as good as Alexis so we best watch out XD
Don't jinx it now, Sterling will now have an amazing game and their goalkeeper will turn into Oliver Kahn.
+3
Glen Johnson will turn into messi in this game, u watch lmao
Sterling is their main threat, though the kid is speedy he's lack of finishing. Overall, their midfield isn't strong. I believe we have more experiences in our midfields as well as forwards. Having Chambers back will be a huge boost.

___________Tex_________
_Bellerin___Debuchy____Mert___Kibbs
_______Flamini____Chambers_____
_Ox_____Santi_______Sanchez______
____Giroud______________

*I don't want to drop Bellerin, use him at RB and Chambers at CDM.


________________Tex_________
__Debuchy___Chambers__Mert___Kibbs
_______Flamini____Ox_____
_Sanchez_____Santi_______Welbeck______
____Giroud______________
YungGunner I'm sure Arsene won't start Bellerin at Anfield when he has two fit right backs, and he certainly won't start Chambers in the midfield for the first time. I expect:

Tex
Chambers, Debuchy, Mert, Gibbs
Flamini, Ox
Alexis, Santi, Danny
Giroud

I have a suspicion that Wenger will go with Debuchy at CB even with Chambers available, he played there against Newcastle out of necessity but his experience may be what leads Wenger to using him in the center.

Basically, we have two players who can play RB and CB and another RB in reserve on the bench in Bellerin, so Wenger will have the luxury of being able to use two right backs from the start.
+1
I think Debuchy will play on the right because Chambers lacks a little bit of pace to deal with Sterling if he switches onto the left wing.

Also, Chamberlain still faces a test so if he isn't fit, you could expect Chambers to play there instead. Him against Coquelin, Maitland-Niles, and Zelalem for the CDM spot.
Coquelin would play there if OX isn't fit, chambers has never played there before
I think we will see chambers at cb. Though i would like to see Debuchy there as well. His pace would really help cover mertesacker and deal with sterling's pace more than Chambers.
I just like the fact Chambers is very calm, composed and move around well with a quick twists and turns. But I definitely get your point, its a big game to experiment.
YG I disagree that he's calm, he's way too rash. The amount of bookings he picks up is the main problem, he's already been suspended on a few occasions. He accumulates so many overtime, it's going to come back and bite him, and us as a result.

I really like him as a player and I think he will be a top player but he's got to take that out of his game.
He's calm on the ball but his tackling/fouling is an issue.
