    For the most part we have figured City out and we can play well against them in big games as recent results (this season) against them show.
    Now we have to keep playing well against the other big teams. I think the games against United and Chelsea are huge , will do wonders for development and knowing how to play against big teams home and away.

    I think with the spine of our team being adjusted it makes us a much more assured outfit :
    Ospina for that Polish guy.
    Gabriel for Mertesacker (I think he will be one of our best signings)
    Coquelin for Flamteta

    1-0, 2-1, 3-2, 4-3, 5-4 etc. defeats are still defeats, even if you only went to Old Trafford/"The Bridge"/Etihad/Anfield and lost 1-0 in all cases, you'd still have "poor away form against the big clubs", only cause the defeats were heavy did the media make such a deal out of it

    Like to see this at some point:

    Coq - Ramsey
    Walcott - Ozil - Santi
    Alexis
    Would adjust as follows for games against weaker opposition. :

    Coq - Ramsey
    Ozil - Santi - Alexis
    Giroud

    (Ozil can switch with Santi in the game, we're pretty fluid)

    For big away games drop one of Santi or Ozil and adopt 4-1-4-1. Would be very interesting to see how Ozil does in the Cazorla role in the game vs City. I think he would do very well and surprise us because he is excellent on the counter attack, dribbles well at speed and makes good decisions with regards to quick transitions into attack (and also his clever off the ball runs that take out a few defenders with him). :

    Chamberlain/Walcott - Santi/Ozil - Ramsey - Alexis

    Problem with that is both Ozil and Alexis would be cutting inside, and not making the most of the width and would be cutting into Santi's space.

    In regards to the first system:

    Would probs put Santi a bit further back, more as a ball carrier/starter of the transition play into attack. In fact this is very necessary as Ramsey being a B2B will inevitably bomb forward.

    Love how you've scraped your way near the top 4 and in the FA Cup convinced yourself you've won it :laugh: and now some people think you can win the title because you beat City minus Yaya and an unfit Agüero :laugh: Classic.

    Only the fools think the FA Cup is won. However, beating City is not out of the ordinary, I think we have figured them out. Toure or no Toure.

    Quite a hilarious accusation considering all the United fans who thought they were in the title race in November after a few shaky wins.

    Most Arsenal fans don''t think we have any chance of winning the league and certainly don't believe that the FA Cup is won, although I think most rational fans would say that if City lose to Chelsea on the weekend we have an outside shot at second and are probably joint favourites for the FA Cup

    He's playing for Chelsea with their £50m medical staff so he'll be back on the pitch sooner than if he had played for Arsenal...

    You clearly post on this thread to seek attention, your posts have never been constructive, even if arsenal do well you will find something bad to say about them. Tbh you'd rather not see them get relegated otherwise they're no longer relevant and that'll stop you from trolling

    If Chelsea had an injury crisis like everyone else they'd be 5th or 6th atm. Absolutely no squad depth or rotation.

    I think in a final between Tottenham and Chelsea I'd actually rather Tottenham won, didn't see the game tonight but sounds like Costa should have got sent off at least twice, sounded like a very good game.

    Agree with Kruz, I remember wanting us to sign Balotelli but Wenger made the right choice in not signing him, he just doesn't have the right attitude.

    Getting a bit concerned over the Paulista deal, they said they probably going to confirm yesterday and still no news today, although with the work permit agreed I can't see the deal falling through, just hope it's confirmed tomorrow along with a guest appearance from Khedira or Carvalho (not srs) .

    Out of interest, if/when Paulista is signed what would people rate this window as, seeing as most people on here felt that the summer window was a 6 or 7/10, despite the fact that we signed some pretty strong overall player with a mix between instant impact and potential?
