    Completely agree but I do often think the derbies look better in hindsight. No doubt the nld, Merseyside and united liverpool Derby are worse now
    You may have something there. Hindsight is a wonderful thing.

    I would not rule out a signing in January, Wenger is like that, more a subtle and gradual team builder. If that is what we need to give an extra push he'll buy. The Gabriel signing shows he is not totally illogical in January transfer windows.

    You must be confident on current form. Other than the 5-3 I can't remember Arsenal winning at SB in god knows how many years...

    We have to go there and play out of our skin, it's a derby, no free wins in these games. With Gabriel, Kos, Coquelin and Cech I am confident we have the best defence we have had since the invincibles.

    Ahhh it feels good to be back where we belong in 4th

    First time i'm feeling confident going to SB, so a humiliating 2-0 defeat where the tactics are completely off is definitely on the cards

    100% agree with this, Coq has some absolutely incredible stats when you look at them, even Bellerin and Monreal are playing exceptionally. My worry now is, will we go and try to play them off the park, rather than go there with a gameplan?

    We will have a gameplan because its Jose. Whether it works or not is another matter. Wenger is not totally dumb.

    And p.s. my conclusion on both Cazorla and Ozil is that they are both fair weather players. Actually think that Giroud is unfairly treated because he can't really score in big games if his supply is not up to scratch. Logically speaking, I think he is good enough to finish against the best teams now. He has proven himself able to do so.

    The whole point of Cazorla and Ozil being in the team is that they dictate the tempo of the game (transitions, pre-assists etc) and play the incisive passes, which to be honest they have largely failed to do against big teams. Love Ozil, but fair is fair. They disappear and when they do the play of the team becomes disjointed because we are so reliant on their playmaking ability.

    That's an interesting point but a fair one tbh. If santi and ozil aren't making chances then how can Giroud finish them? That being said he's prone to missing sitters in big games so it can't only be that.

    Gab has to start next weekend, but I really have no idea who I'd pick on wings and at CM.

    At least we're guaranteed to see Sanchez end Ivanovic's career once and for all.

    The Cech signing alone justifies this statement. You've had some absolutely shocking defences since 2004.

    The only notable names in their squad are Croatia international defender Schildenfeld and ex United striker Henriquez. Nullify them and arsenal will coast to victory

    2010, dark ages man. Fabianski and Squillaci at the heart of our defence. Djourou came on as sub when Squillaci killed Koscielny :lol:.

    Still a mystery how we beat Barca with Djourou and Eboue in our back 4. An even bigger mystery is how I stayed alive celebrating Arshavin's goal.

    It's the go to video after a hard loss, so many snake's but Arsene be the snake whisperer that day, that Arshavin goal got me running round the living shouting "barcalona who" with the more than occasional voice crack. Dayum good times

    An even bigger mystery is how you didn't win the title that year. We won five away games all season and had like 80 points ffs.

    Completely bottled it post League Cup and Fergie trolling you with 7 defenders in our XI for a cup match.
