    Match of the day is going to be great. A Man United loss and an Arsenal win.

    Also saw a stat that Arsenal created the second least chances out of the top 4.

    They just keep hold of the ball for long enough as defensive possession. First game of the season most important thing is three points. So well done on that score. Can't complain.

    We didn't create much but tbf we weren't given much room by Palace. Not an excuse for our performance though

    When teams park the bus, there needs to be a lot of movement from the forward players and they all need hold up the ball well. Sanogo did neither and was a big reason why we created basically nothing of note in the first half. Maybe he'll be a good player for us in the future, but I don't see how we can allow him to get anywhere near the team in these types of games when we KNOW teams are draggin their bus into the stadium. He's simply not good enough at the moment. The difference was evident when Giroud came on - he was able to hold up the ball and allow our side to push on, creating a couple of chances.

    Also, Cazorla was unbelievably poor, but I expect that to be an abberation and not the norm. Just wasn't his day. Thank god Ramsey bailed us out again, as he has done so often. We desperately need him fit for the entire season - even when he's playing **** (like today), he still comes up big when we need him most.

    No, awful ****ing performance. Tell me you're happy with that I ****ing dare you because I'll promise you now we won't come anywhere ****ing near chelsea and man city this season if we don't develop an actual attacking system. Too reliant on certain players the system is ****ing terrible
    I honestly don't care about the actual game now. We've got the 3 points that's all that matters. It was the first game, we've learn lessons and I think we'll improve.

    Drawing conclusions from the first league matches isn't an accurate indicator of where a team is at. Just look at Liverpool last season, They didn't have a 100% start but found their form later on in the season

    What system? There is no system. Wenger doesn't do tactics.
    Probably true

    Sanchez needs to play closer to the goal, preferably off Giroud when he's fully fit, but that won't be for a while until Theo's fit. He often made poor crosses when out wide and his crossing was poor too. I think he would do well playing next to a target man, especially someone like Giroud who's excellent at bringing others in to play.

    Also Sanogo should be sent on loan with Campbell being the back up.

    Lol.

    Anyway Ozil and Sanchez should work out ok. Honestly I don't get how Sanchez falls to pieces with his final ball as he does everything else right.

    Sanogo getting game time ahead of Campbell is a travesty tbf.

    Take nothing away from Palace though - they were frigging brilliant.

    To think they were manager-less..

    I think most teams would have struggled to break them down
    They were good, but I don't know why we've come to expect nothing less from a bottom feeder travelling to the Emirates. A contained, well organised defense that we've seen a million times before and will see a lot more this season. We were sloppy and slow with our passing, which made it a lot easier for them than it should have been.

    It was exactly the same as most of the **** I watched last season. Have we actually improved the first 11 at all? (Id 100% have Walcott over Sanchez on the right as well so much more end product)

    In fact they did.

    They didn't concede a single goal in their first 3 games and won 1-0.

    Only bad part was the losses vs Arsenal and Soton as they were very unlucky vs City and could have got a draw vs Chelsea. Although we dominated the first half so deserved to win.

    Nothing really to take away from this game. We weren't at our best, but still grabbed the 3 points(against a very organised crystal palace side) Starting the season with a win is the biggest positive.

    I really wish we bought Mandzukic tbh, ideal player for our team. Zurich was right on that one.

    I think he's referring to the unconvincing wins up until mid octoberish.. Had they stayed like that they wouldn't have finished second.

    They became more lethal and adopted a real good chemistry when Suarez returned and then they were scoring for fun

    We were rusty today. Passing was very poor. But we got three points and we move on. Get Ozil and Mert back and get back to match sharpness.

    I don't really know how Sanogo has conned his way into being a professional footballer though.

    Gotta say Cazorla getting blinded by the ref was hilarious :L Might explain why he didn't perform today XD
