    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)
    Are you really asking that question. Sanchez was one of the better players today, yeah he lost the ball sometimes but he made things happen. With 2 assist in 2 games, you can't say he hasn't improved the team. Please bare in mind we're missing the Germans and I still think we'll add in the window. You can't complain if we get a CB and CDM

    I don't think BB is a troll. He talks sense at times and I can understand his POV in fairness. I do think he's being overly critical and objective. I'm not sure if he actually support Arsenal tho, I've never really seen him say anything positive

    Even if he is trolling at least there some actual substance to it

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

    I wouldn't count on it tbh. It'll be something along the lines of "Man united were unlucky today" and as for us something stupid like "They scraped a win through an unconvincing performance with mediocre looking players".

    Travelling without moving :hi5:

    Yeah fast persuader is a good tune tbf.

    Synkronized I got used to it but yeah felt a bit dark like you say although Canned heat was very good. Funk Odyssey. Genuinely can't find a best album. Emergency on Planet earth to Dynamite were all good. Synkronized probably the weakest of them but still good. Probs will choose Return of Space Cowboy or TWM.

    How can I forget Mr Moon and Soul Education. Good tune are the songs on the B side of a funk odyssey, everybody's going to the moon and Do it Like We Used To Do.
    How could I forget the B-sides?

    Do You Know Where You're Coming From on Travelling Without Moving and Shoot The Moon from A Funk Odyssey :coma:

    Sanchez was terrible lol. Lost the ball constantly. No end product.

    He wasn't very good vs city either

    i watched him a lot at barca. Walcott is definetley the better player and he won't displace giroud so we'll see if he can adapt to the left side

    With fabregas going for 27m it does put things in to perspective a bit. Fabregas is a far better player barca have done really well to get 35m for sanchez who for most of his time there was poor. I've said from day 1 I wasn't excited about him tbh and from what I've seen so far I've been justified. The signing stinks of a flop who wenger continues to play through poor form

    He does have a point. At the end of last season we were begging for a new ST and a DM, and we don't have either. All we have done is fill the gaps in the team of the players who have left plus Sanchez, and we now need to get an extra CB.

    Unless we get a ST and DM along with the CB we know we are after, I can't see us finishing higher than 3rd.

    disappointed in your performance today, however you got the win in the end so it doesn't matter.
    your signings didn't seem to have increased the quality in your team looking at today, however it would be foolish to say such things with certainty after a single game.
    although he got an assist, sanchez was extremely below par.
    i have no doubt he'll improve though

    i suppose people could look at the game today, seeing you struggling and say you won't have a good season.
    however all that matters is that you got the points.

    look at it this way - united didn't perform and they got 0 points; arsenal didn't perform and they got 3 points.
    that is the big difference between the two teams right now as far as i'm concerned.

    This would be reasonable if it was the case 10 games into the season. Now it's 1 game in and this is just funny to read.

    The transfer window isn't over yet, it's Day 1 of the season :rofl2:

    Sometimes it's not all about fancy performance or football, grinding it out is sometimes the way to do - I always respected Man Utd's ability to do this even when they were crappy when Fergie was around.
