    lol and all the teams we played were **** bar for city and tottenham. We lost the 2nd didn't we
    And that's Wenger's fault? Or the fact our team didn't do **** after going 1-0 up?

    Bellerin has been wasteful going forward. Could have done better for that second goal actually and yes Mertesacker needs to be replaced to which is why I said CB?!
    Bellerin was OK imo. Mertesacker was a shower of ****e, and nah you didn't mention him in your post.

    Hopefully Gabriel comes good and can partner Koscielny? Two quick CBs is essential in today's game. Mertesacker may have the height, but his tortoise-esque speed is ridiculous. He should be on a basketball court.

    Scneiderlin, Carvalho, Kondogbia, just to name 3 :confused: There are more players available eg no one even heard of Paulista until we were linked with him
    I agree with Schneiderlin and Kondogbia, and I'm the first to say that we need to buy a CDM before any other position.

    Carvalho seems like a load of hype, though.

    Giroud was unlucky tonight yes. But he's 28 and could easily decline next season. I'm not saying we bench him, I'd rather we use a two striker system with Giroud and a better partner. We played Welbeck Alexis Walcott today and it had no effect. We need a striker.
    They all had an effect imo, we were just unlucky in front of goal.

    Seriously, we must have set a record for number of balls in and around their six yard box without a goal (until Ox's screamer).

    The problem with two up top is Ozil, who Arsene is building the team around. I'm all for playing Giroud and Welbz up top with Alexis and Theo on the wings, but we'd get steamrolled in midfield.

    No I don't have Cavani/Benzema in mind but Giroud/Cavani or Giroud/Benzema would be a much better strikeforce then Giroud/Welbeck and you can't argue with that. Jackson Martinez was a decent shout, Wilfred Bony, Mandzukic, LOIC REMY even would have been a much better shout than Welbeck.
    Of course Benzema/Giroud would be a much better strike-force than Giroud/Welbz, but why on Earth would Benzema leave Real Madrid? And whilst we're at fairytales, why would Cavani leave PSG when Ibra's done in 1.5 years?

    Martinez was/is £30m+.

    Bony was always CIty bound.

    Mandzukic isn't a massive upgrade on Giroud.

    Remy I agree with - we should have signed him for £7m. Great speed and can play on the wing.

    There's no crystal ball. Past 10 years should tell you enough. Stop apologising for the same **** performance.
    Brand new stadium. Debt under control.

    You don't have a clue what you're talking about if you're rating Wenger's managerial ability on his last ten years at the club.

    There's a reason Real, Bayern, PSG and the French national team bent over backwards/are still ready to bend over backwards for him (with the exception of Bayern now who have Pep).

    Are you serious? Alexis was the hardest working man on the pitch. Not his fault he's got lumps of fat in shorts running around him doing **** all.

    its ok though, because alexis runs around so much and puts so much effort in..

    Whereas ozil just has smug face regardless of how he is playing

    = english probelms with football.

    Giroud reverted to the absolute donkey from 12/13. Something like 6 attempts from him, and not a single one on target.

    Did I just see someone suggest we sign Kondogbia Jesus ****ing Christ that sums English football fans up in a nutshell, see one guy play one good game against your team and suddenly he's the best CDM in the world, not saying the guy wasn't good, but I'd be surprised if more than 10% of your average English football faans would have heard of him before tonight.

    Also, just one last dig at Neville, did anyone else hear him constantly saying how perfect the game was at the end for Berbatov, because he's a lazy player who'll create something with a flash of brilliance, interesting how he doesn't feel that way about Ozil isn't it... Feel sorry for Henry that he'll have to share a office with that **** and Jamie Rednapp every game

    Just cause Alexis runs around a lot doesn't mean he was doing anything productive. We'd be better off bidding for Henderson if that was the case.

    He didn't just run around though, him and cazorla at least tried to put some impetus and pace into the passing but they just went too central too often. Ozil, on the other hand, did **** all and either lost the ball or passed it backwards/sideways which lost any momentum we had.

    Alexis covered the cracks with his performance because he never gave up. Wasn't he responsible for the second goal?

    Ozil's playing style gets him grief, even though he was no-where near our worst player tonight.
