    Looking good though, if the likes of Bellerin, Gnabry, Crowley and Zelalem step up then we will have quite some team.
    And still no DMF:rolleyes:

    will actually die if in 5 years we still have a world classs squad being held back by having no DMF.

    By then I think we will just have to accept that Wenger does not do DMF's. If he is still here.

    Liverpool win the award for most undeserved win of the Premier League, and I say that as a person who watched all 90 minutes of Arsenal yesterday.
    meh, as i'm sure many arsenal fans were saying yesterday "a win is a win".
    i've been watching man united score last minute winners in the premier league long enough to know that football isn't fair.

    in terms of performance we were both poor, but the difference is that southampton played a pretty good game in terms of attacking but palace didn't.

    as long as one of united or liverpool drop points, i'd say it's a good weekend for arsenal fans (as long as you win too).
    say what you want but (with respect) i think you're going for 3rd/4th place again this season - all you gotta do is stay ahead of either united or liverpool.

    I've only ever known one person called Luke. He wore glasses, and had black hair. Looked a bit like Harry Potter, so everyone called him Potter. He sat foundation papers in GCSE Science, Maths, and English, and took PE as a GCSE.

    Now I'm not saying all Lukes are the same. Im #justsayin

    To me a win is good, but it still hurts to see Arsenal, the team who consistently plays the best football in the league, win through a scruffy tap-in during injury time, especially with the performances of Wilshere and Cazorla yesterday.

    Southampton may have played a better attacking game, but that is only because Palace were playing to defend (Southampton's defense really was quite poor today, Clyne made up for that pathetic show by being rather good going forward).

    With respect, United aren't going to have a sniff at Champions League football this year, and if their performance yesterday is anything to go by, Europa League might be a stretch. Liverpool are going to be desperate, winning through terrible performances like this one and hoping to get 4th place.

    To be honest, it's posts like this which was the reason why he developed a Luke defensive mechanism, he was always posting like this since he came into the TSR football scene but he was attacked and was actually bullied. He don't take no **** no more, Luke defensive mechanism activate !

    yeah i agree - they thing that has always impressed me about arsenal over the year is their chemistry and elegance
    they have always been the smooth, slick passing team to me so i understand what you mean about a scrappy win.

    true, soton were great going forward but a little shaky at the back - we didn't capitalise as much as we should have.
    honestly though, i would much rather attack a team for 95% of a game (as long as it isn't chelsea...) than have them fight back like soton did.

    tbh man, i'll take 37 more desperate performances if it gets us CL.
    we played lovely, great to watch football last season; although we came second and weren't aiming for the league, it feels a little bit like we failed by coming 2nd.
    if it takes desperate, scrappy football to reach our target this year, so be it.

    samir got it spot on.
    i always posted in a repsectable and fair manner, trying not to cause offence.
    but why should i if people post things like that in response (literally nothing to do with football)?

    however since LDM has made me a little more volatile, i've decided to try to return back to my old posting style.
    however don't think for one second i won't hang you out to dry like the little boy you are.

    It is sad really, he was a breath of fresh air on these forums, but some posters couldn't really take that and just dragged him down to a level worse then them.

    Tbh the thread needs arguments and drama. It's great having informative users but you also need the users who get the arguments in and fires up the threads.

    Let's be fair here. He is like the punchbag in school/college that was always there if you were feeling stressed out. Football forums aren't meant to be nice places, full of factions and old feelings of rivalry (even hatred). The nice get seen as weak and trampled underfoot (no pun intended this time, really).

    Yh but not to the point where it takes up 10 odd pages which had been the case, Luke was fine as he was, the arguing doesn't suit him imo.

    What the hell is your problem? He tries to be nice but you tossers attack him when he does, calling him 'deceptive' and insulting him personally. When he gets annoyed and replies in kind, you act as if you are innocent and he is just a nasty person. You are a cancer to any forum that wants calm and moderated discussion. I don't care if he is a Scouser and I don't care that some of his responses are completely idiotic. If you say something normal and non-aggressive to him, he replies the same way, and that is good enough for me.
