    They'll only enquire if they get any worried about Dani Alves' performances
    Dani Alves is like 35 or something isnt he? cant see him staying for much longer as a first team player. The first place they look when in need of a player is at arsenal.

    Match threads.
    How are you this fine day Rapaz.

    Yeah there needs to be a discussion on what matches actually deem match threads, kind of getting sick of it now.

    Maybe on paper but Arsenal currently aren't playing better than Liverpool of last season.

    We'd already scored 53 goals in 22 games (and went on to score another 48 in 16 games) whereas Arsenal have only scored 39 goals.

    Think what he's trying to say is we have a better overall squad and first XI compared to yours of last year, which is evident. Anyways iirc your real streak of success came after beating us which was early/mid Feb, so still lots of time left in the season.

    There are really only 4 main threads and that's Chelsea Liverpool UTD Arsenal. Whenever two from those 4 play each other then make a thread to herd the posts together otherwise don't bother, since there's no real point.

    I agree, I'll have a chat with Sr90, Rock fan and Greeneyedgirl about it because clearly it's not popular with the majority on here and rightly so. Thanks

    Also, someone answer AR's question pls.

    Yeah, was just about to say, inevitably the Barca vultures will come knocking and they will get him, which is why we should put more effort and hope into Jenkinson tbh. Bellerin will never be a real Arsenal man at heart when the big Spanish clubs call. Not bothered about Bellerin.

    Don't forget Moreno still has ceiling and they could go for him in a few years too. Nothing to say Bellerin will be the best defender in the league, the claim is absolutely ridiculous (forgot who said this). He's threatening going forward but he is a defender first and foremost. Can't really say he's been tested against a side who have scored the least goals this season.

    I'd second this.

    bang tidy winger today, but you probably want a winger to have more than 75 pace.

    anyway whoscored.com agreed with me that Cazorla was MOTM

    I remember when Wenger started adding goals to Cesc's game and Cesc had the 09-10 season where he scored 19 goals in 36 appearances. This was his penultimate season before his Barca strop season (when he ****ed off to the Barca bumboys).

    I can see Wenger trying to put that type of development into Ozil's game, i.e. focusing on the direct/decisive final impact and I can see that this is most likely the reason for sticking him into a wing type of creative player position (rather than the middle). We like one more creative on one side and then a pace abuser on the other side with them switching sides if need be throughout the game. Cazorla is at his most effective in the CAM role, as the orchestrator. It all makes sense tbh, Ozil still has room for development. He really can become an absolute beast.

    Would have made sense to give Gabriel twenty minutes towards the end of the game imo. The game was so far out of Villa's reach and they weren't offering anything - he could have been brought in and got to grips with the PL during what was practically an exhibition match.

    Last thing you need is to throw him in at the deep end against Tottenham!

    Agree with some of the points. Ozil's slow start wasn't due to being on the left wing but just not being up to pace fitness and form wise. Cazorla definitely deserves the central role over Ozil currently.

    You could say a lot of things with can or will. Fact is I don't think Bellerin has been tested at all yet ( bit like Ospina) so I reserve judgement from him for now. Defensively I haven't seen anything to suggest he can be the best in a few years. At this rate Chambers is more likely to be the better defender and yet he's still miles off it.

    Tbh RB is a relatively easy position to fill. If we can do business with Barca for players like Sanchez then it need not be all bad.
