    No Arsenal for 2 weeks now

    Arsene for manager of the month? Considering our normal March nightmares, winning 6 out of 6 games is ****ing impressive.

    Now the tough games start, Liverpool and Chelsea plus Burnley away (very tough game they'll be fighting for it) and FA Cup semi final. We should be aiming for 7 points and an FA Cup win imo, I'd expect us to still beat Burnley and we normally do Ok against Liverpool at the Emirates, Chelsea normally go for the draw against us at the Emirates so 7 points is the minimum aim surely

    Chambers is actually a worse full back than smalling. Didn't think that was possible :lol:
    Hasn't Smalling been your best defender of late? thought he'd been ok this season

    I really rate Smalling as a central defender, and like him a lot. If he gets a good run of games there he could be Englands best defender in 2-3 years quite easily as all round he's a very good player but just suffers retarded concentration lapses.

    At full back though, he's a joke. Not only that but it stifled his development as a proper DC for a few years.

    I expect 5 but that doesn't mean we should be aiming for more. Burnley should be a hard fought win and there's no reason why we can't beat Liverpool, yes they've been exceptional this year but if United put a result in tomorrow I'd expect them to lose a bit of confidence. As for Chelsea they aren't looking amazing, they'll go for the draw

    Ahhh, fair play, I was judging him on his CB performances not his ones at RB.

    the thing about lpool is if they win at OT they carry forward momentum, if they lose they will come out all guns blazing.

    I feel sorry for Chambers, he may be a decent CB but the fact he's played at RB and made a joke out of means people have already judged him as ****

    bellerin is quality m8:fuhrer:

    srs
    Not as a regular first teamer, how many top teams will even start bellerin if they had him? Don't get me wrong, love the dude, and has his moments of quality but let's be real here.

    We missed Ozil today, Ramsey was all over the place and prevented Giroud scoring a hat-trick. Sanchez and Cazorla need proper rests. Hard-earned and possibly not deserved, but a welcome three points.

    Who are you more fearful of overtaking you? Liverpool or Man Utd?

    And their fans are far worse!

    He isn't our starter so what are you complaining about? Have you forgotten about Debuchy?

    Someone's a bit cranky today

    No you misunderstood. And yeah he has whilst Debuchy has been out. I was saying in general, we need better quality rb's even if they are just a back up to Debuchy.

    In 5 years time Bellerin will either be at Barcelona or Barnsley.

    We have 4 RBs for next season, I doubt many teams have backups in that position as good as us...
