    Chelsea look like they can really anally penetrate us against our will this season. I.e. We look like we're in for another raping. They look very clinical and mentally tough. Honestly don't think we have the quality to match them unless we bring at least a striker and a CDM.
    It was a good performance, but in reality we just upped the tempo for 20/30 mins then slowed down the play. Problem with Chelsea is that we don't have enough quality backups in the side to carry on this aesthetically pleasing football. Our subs are going to be Mikel, Ramires and Van Ginkel. Only Van Ginkel can really help this philosophy, but he will struggle to get games. Mikel and Ramires leads to last season problems, it's just the Mourinho likes to have clear backups and they work hard.

    this basically, some sexy play/goals but burnley will finish bottom of the table anyway.
    Burnley will survive, their first game against Chelsea who had strengthened majority of their squad(Bar RW which we need to improve) when they weren't used to the prem.

    Some one who sees my point
    I guarantee that Burnley will survive.

    They didn't do too badly, they just encountered a better team and were blown away when we upped the tempo. There will be more of the same from the Chelsea behemoth.

    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).
    I agree with the fixture list. Said similar last season.

    I think you will get better results vs the big teams this season. Surely you won't lose to United away...
    Chelsea will struggle to storm the league this year. I think the real contenders are Liverpool and City. If Chelsea can get 3 more signings then possibly... 1 RW, a WC CM as rotation and a backup striker better than Drogba.

    First game of the season syndrome imo, fans and players were hyped about new league and they played with a lot of confidence tbf but when they rack up a streak of losses I think they'll find it really hard to come back.

    I hope so because I quite like Sean dyche but I can't see it happening because apart from ings and trippier, who else do they have who have the quality to help them survive?

    Palace are the closest comparison to Burnley. I think that keeping their championship players and how they have a very good defensive record in the championship may mean that they'll look to steal points off big teams. They'll be harder than people think.

    Nobody will play the tempo that Chelsea played in the first half for the whole game, very few teams in the league(bar City and Liverpool) have that ability to play such fast football and that's what I think will blow away burnley. It's also why Chelsea played a lot of weak teams in pre-season. So they can know how to play defensive teams which was the problem last season.

    Difference between Palace and Burnley is that Palace are pretty much set up to nick a goal and then defend extremely deep and have been doing so in the league effectively for a while, I can't see them losing that even with Pulis gone unless somebody comes in and reinvents the wheel (which would be foolish). Burnley won't have anything like the defensive organisation to pull that off (Pulis was pretty much the master at that, and although Dyche is clearly a competent manager this is a step up for him) and I'd say their squad is weaker than Palace's as well. They'll need a miracle to be honest, they don't have much money and have come into the league at a time when even the lesser teams can spend a fair amount. I can't say with confidence they are stronger than one team in the league let alone 3. Their only chance is to make Turf Moor a fortress, it's been a tough place to play in the past. Can see them putting up some initial resistance but falling away towards the end of the season.

    This is an Arsenal thread, take your conversations about Titanic to a suitably awful thread. Perhaps the Spurs one?














    Anyway I'll stop now


    Odds on Demba Ba scoring tonight?

    Probably very high, although I reckon he is the only one that can. Either 3-0 or 3-1 with Ba scoring. Lets hope we can see Campbell now that Sanogo picked up an injury.

    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.
    Ozil will never be as good as Cesc in the prem tbh but he's better in la liga. Cesc picked up where he left off at arsenal and he'll be back to the level he was before he left where he was regarded as probs the best midfielder in the prem. He suits the league perfectly with his direct style

    This is what frustrates me why didn't we sign fabregas when he's a player who completely dictates the tempo of a game. He's such a massive upgrade on arteta in that respect.

    Nobody in our team can control a game like that and it's why we never show any consistency in our style. Ramsey fair enough he gets a lot of goals and assists but he doesn't have as much affect on a game like fabregas

    In. 2010/11 which was cescs worst season we had 64% win rate with him and 39% without and for 27m he was a bargain

    The fact we're using a player like Sanogo shows me all I need to see regarding our title ambitions this year. It is a total pisstake.

    He will be absolutely slaughtered for the entire match. Hope he gets emotional over that.
