    and targetting specific players for blame is a bit silly, excluding this case specifically with Koscielny. Ok we lost, because of one clear mistake, we were a bit shaky at the back and looked like we were playing on edge in stoppage time but it wasn't a necessarily bad performance, just not the standard that it should have been for a final

      You forgot Kun Aguero in for Bendtner
      You know, we might also consider bringing in Messi for Denilson; the former is a marginally better player.

      Can you please explain to me how a dross defence don't conceded a legit goal in 600 odd premier league minutes?

      They made an error, obviously that makes them awful hopeless players who can't handle the pressure lol, you're pathetic
      Easy fixtures.

      I also like how you fit a moan about the ref into it :teehee:

      If they're not dross, how did they let Newcastle back in? Or Wigan a while ago? The ref again?

      Yes it does :wink: and thanks for the insult. Keyboard warrior. Rather 'pathetic' if you ask me.

      Agreed, what's up with the knee-jerk reactions and saying things such as Wenger needs to go. It's not the end of the world, after a couple of jokes about trophy cabinets it'll cool down within a week or less
      (Original post by jit987)
      Exactly my point. By losing we have attracted alot of non-Arsenal fans into this thread (especially ManU fans). I rather go off TSR for some hours and play BO, instead of reading these pointless comments. The strange thing is that alot of Arsenal fans here are talking in non-Arsenal fans talk, which is rather disappointing. :facepalm:
      :yy: I've stopped reading them now.

      If we'd won they would still be here though

      What's so special about Birmingham? Sure they defend well, but seriously, they have a below average attack. Almost every attack consisted of kicking the ball up to Zigic and he won most of the headers, creating crucial knockdowns and Arsenal were slow to respond to this. If Arsenal can't deal with this, surely there's a need for concern. The Martins goal was a result of a knockdown into a dangerous area. How can people just stay calm about this and not worry about Arsenal. I thought this was disgusting to be honest, you can't be called a good defender if you can't deal with this kind of petty attack. That being said, i am not surprised about the lull in Arsenal's attack today, RVP was clearly recovering from the hamstring and we needed Fabs and Walcott just like any other team need their best players.

      Arsenal played okay tbh, but Birmingham wanted it more I guess. Just one of those things, really.

      But could still probably do with a quality, experienced CB. Like Gallas :teeth:

        You're right, we should just sign Beckenbauer.

        Bale is better
        He could replace Wenger, then.

        Yeah, that was a clear moan at the ref, he could probably sue me for slander. And pointing out that it was offside by no means reinforces my point, it was just pathetically added so I could moan about the officials.

        Djourou wasn't on the pitch vs Newcastle or Wigan, Squillaci is dross

        Didn't Arsène infamously say that it wouldn't count as ending his trophy drought if he won it?

        All doubt extinguished in any case :teeth:

        As expected the idiots are back posting their usual crap. Funniest thing is, all there teams got knocked out before us.

        I'll reserve my comments like the rest of the sensible members in this soc, once the senseless comments have stopped.

        vermaelen is class and when back will keep our defense solid guaranteed. Today koscielny made one mistake, just consider how he played against barca: for me our second best player that night

        I am not bitter. Birmigham were fantastic today, i am just addressing the Arsenal's defensive display.
