    Nonsense. There no excuses for us this season, in the last 2 years our best players have been tied down on long term contracts, no key players have left, we have money, we have spent big money and our debt is manageable.

    We can't hide behind the word transition anymore after we lead the League for most of the last season "but for injuries" people say heck we've brought in a world renown fitness coach to deal with that. We need to re-establish our presence and our status in English football by winning the league. FA cup is all well and good but The league is the most important. 11 years mate is far too long.

    I'll reserve judgement on the transfer window after it closes. We're not that far away for Chelsea and City, I'm sure AW will bring the right players.
    Not saying that the word transition is acceptable any more but in reality that is the most likely case. Injuries weren't the sole reason why we'd get hammered in the big away games. Even when we had the likes of Walcott and Ramsey play for us at the Ethiad we still lost.

    We have spent big. We have tied down our players. That doesn't mean that just because we've changed our policy that we're automatically title winners though. I know you love Giroud and he does get more stick then deserved but he is clearly not suited enough to play for us in the big games - should be 2nd choice at best.

    We've signed 2 big names. Ozil and Sanchez. We're still 1 or 2, maybe even 3 ( pushing it) big signings away from having the same quality on our starting XI compared to Chelsea's/City's. Everyone is shouting out for a tank right now for DMF and a world class striker but I highly doubt we'll be getting these two this window. What's our depth at Left back? Gibbs is already injured and we're back to relying on Monreal who I just don't think is up to par.

    There was a reason why we led the league last season for so long and that was because of our fixture list. Essentially we won the games we were meant to win and lost the ones which were acceptable bar a few hiccups (which happened to every team).
    To be considered actual title contenders we need to have a squad strong enough to be able to grab more points off our rivals.
    Sanchez is a good upgrade but I don't see us improving our big game record from last season bar gaining 4 extra points from UTD and Everton.
    Chelsea will most likely storm the league this year and the same to be said with City if Aguero managed to stay fit. Even if he didn't they have Dzeko, Jovetic and Ngredo where as we'd fall on Sanogo (I don't count Sanchez and Theo as strikers as of yet).


    Whether it's acceptable or not to not win the league this year is another question. In reality though for us to be in that position we're still a few players off but who really is there to buy this summer? Falcao/Cavani are out of the question and Carvalho looks to be off. How many other potential/world class players are there right now? I'm just saying that there are still some gaps in the team that need to be filled, not just for now but in the long run too. It won't happen over one window but I can see it definitely happening after a year or two.

    A decent season would be 3rd place with QF in CL and possibly a league/FA cup. I don't expect us getting much more.

    Listen to the violin version of the theme, it's awesome



    There's quite a few films I rate higher then it, it's in my 9/10 category with like 30/40 other films, it just gives me more feels then any other so it sticks out for me

    Thing is, Wenger is over loyal. Sometimes it pays like with Rambo, RVP etc but then you have Arteta, Almunia, Senderos situations. And Arteta is the model professional, and seems to really get on well with Wenger personally so it's one of those really.

    Why has Wenger gone off Flamini anyway? Start of last season he was really dynamite but after Xmas AW just seemed to lose faith, or at least he refuses to drop Arteta for him. Flamini is a much much better prtner for Ramsey than MA.

    I really hope Diaby somehow finds fitness, maybe Chamers can play DM?
    Lol flamini is absolutely awful tell me one thing he excels at other than running round like a moron

    At his best, he hounds opposition players and generally makes things difficult for them. Decent tackling and good tactical awareness etc.

    He's not good enough to be a starter, but he's ahead of Arteta surely.

    So he just runs around a bit a French lee cattermole?

    His tackling isn't decent he picks up stupid cards every game

    His tactical awareness is awful he's been dropped because of his unintelligent pressing and inability to understand how to block off a passing avenue by covering a certain space seen wenger losing his **** at flamini many times for this.

    [email protected] fans who believe some mystical DM exists that sits back and stops all counter attacks and breaks everything up. It's the ****ing system for **** sake. An upgrade on arteta is needed fair enough but I've even heard people want wanyama for **** sake

    What top team in world football plays with this destroyer?

    doesnt have to be a destroyer, just a disciplined and tactically aware CM who covers the space and can mix it up physically

    Who is this player?


    Was interesting to see fabregas hit the ground running as I predicted today. Was it you who said ozil was the better passer than him recently? Laughable assertion. Fully expect him to cement his place as the best CM in the league this season now he isn't being wasted at barca

    You tell me who's available? Gilberto used to do it for us. Matic does it, Martinez does it, Schweinsteiger can do it etc etc

    Burnley is nice, but Mesut Ozil's been busy winning the World Cup and that. :laugh:

    I don't know who's available who's better than arteta in that role

    Unfortunately I dont give a ****ing **** about Germany so I don't care what ozil does there I want him to do something in the premier league and
    I waited 40+ games for ozil to have a performance on that level and fabregas has provided one on his first game back

    Butty is dropping some truth bombs.

    Saying that I still think Ozil was a quality, worthwhile signing purely cos of the statement it sent out. Performance wise yeah he hasn't done too much, I can't even recall him touching the ball at Villa Park.

    Cesc was on one against Burnley. You just know Mourinho has given him some cynical pep talk and complex. He will have a Robin type of performance against us, I guarantee it. But hey, he appears to have the fire in him, Ozil... disappears. Then again, I have never really regarded Cesc as a big game player either so I guess that kind of numbs the pain.

    Ozil basically has to prove he is worth that few more million than Cesc, it is a bloody tough task.

    Team for tonight?

    - feeling that an extra game at this stage of the season could be a good thing.. Looking at the first game, most teams were not fully settled, and looked nervous (arsenal/city/liverpool) so having an extra game to settle down and get up to speed, before a tricky everton match, seems positive.
