    Scenes when Arsenal fans brag about a win against United when they've been our ***** for years and couldn't beat Moyes
    I am not sure what you are getting at?

    That makes perfect sense?

    A team has struggled against another team for years..

    Finally manages to beat them..

    Ofcourse they are going to brag and be proud of that?

    Entirely normal behaviour..

    Well no as of right now it's just:
    Carrick > Coq
    Herrera > Ramsey
    Mata > Cazorla
    Fellaini > Sanchez

    Difeo are you ****ing serious right now? You guys fluke a 2-1 win versus Liverpool and beat City at their worst yet and suddenly you're the best team ever.

    We beat both of them by more and have spunked on every team that's come our way this year, as shown by the most points per game in Europe'd top 5 leagues. Can't wait for Chelsea to put you guys back in place tomorrow
    Never heard anyone say the Liverpool win was a fluke before. You've had far easier games recently and only narrowly won some of them eg Burnley and Newcastle.
    It's pretty well established that Mata and Herrera are on top form right now, and that Carrick makes a huge difference to our results when he's in the team. The only one that's remotely debatable is Fellaini-Sanchez.

    To think Coquelin is only 5ft 8 and dominated Fellaini

    Are you actually going to claim that Young hasn't been better than Sanchez over the last month? Lol
    So, you would have Young over Alexis... based on three/four games?

    So what are you trying to say?

    You're going in and debating with multiple posters here, claiming that Young has been better than Alexis over the past month.. I don't get it - what's your point? How do you even rate a footballer? Over a week? Month? Season?

    The original debate was comparing players over this season and also their entire careers. Then Acorns brought up "right now", and put Sanchez above Young. So I disagreed with that, that's all.

    Don't get why it's so hard to accept Young has been in better form than Alexis. Just because he has a bad reputation, it's like saying Coquelin is ****e because he played for Charlton, regardless of form.

    Horrible to see the majority of the 100,000+ racist comments on social media found by Kick It Out were aimed at Welbeck and Sturridge, two exceptional English players, and Balotelli.

    Nah. They should be - and need to be - for this to stop, though.

    But the issue is you've been comparing players in different positions, CAM's with wingers, CM with CDM and then ignoring our starting CAM when comparing players. It just makes no sense

    Maybe because racism against white players isn't classed as racism #controversial

    Carrick is a CDM. A different type to Coquelin, but the closest comparison there is. CAMs with wingers - do you mean Di Maria-Sanchez? They're similar enough.

    I've explained Ozil: with only 4 spots to compare there has to be a DM (Coq), a CM (Ramsey) and obviously Sanchez has to be there. That leaves space for one of Ozil and Cazorla, and Cazorla has been the better player over the time they've both been in England.
