    No because we have Monreal saving us from embarrassment-

    so this glousck disappears when walcott goes out injured and reappears 13 months later when he comes back

    i can only conclude that glousck is walcott.

    Yes. Now that Chelsea have sign Cuadrado they have become a real threat to us, whereas before they weren't.

    Why do you hate monreal so much? He's been better than Gibbs and one of the most solid/ consistent defenders in the league this season.

    Doesn't matter who Chelsea sign tbh, they'll come to the Emirates looking for a draw and somehow snatch a 1-0 win

    We got a draw against them last year. We're both stronger but this year at least our big game performances have gone up slightly. I don't see Chelsea winning at the Emirates at all

    Last year they bus parked, there's no need for them to. You still have clear deficiencies, have a feeling Cuadrado, Oscar and Hazard will have a field day on the counter. Thing is they can penetrate you through the middle as well, thing with City is they're a low work rate team and easy to counter for that reason, but I guess it depends how Jose sets up. Expect a away win though either way.

    Same, but I would prefer it to be more than a draw.

    It really depends on what state the league table is in when we meet, and that's how Mourinho will decide how he'll approach the game

    You're not stronger this year than the last. You have only been showing form this past month.

    We have a stronger first XI on paper. Coincidently we've been showing form because our injured players have been returning or new players are finding their stride.

    Yeah I guess so.

    Anyway pretty sure the game is going to end up with us turning on the style, or if you lot have been in good form recently and we don't need to win the game we'll come for a draw and get the draw.

    I don't hate on Monreal but as a LB I think Gibbs is a much more threat to opposition with his aerial ability and his pace. Although Nach has recently started proving himself especially against AV he was pretty sick but I still prefer Gibbs.

    What a **** transfer deadline day.

    Anyway when is Sanchez back? Kind of guy you want on the pitch for the derby. He will be literally gurning for it.
    sanchez is already back for the next game
    he is such a beast that his injury got scared away after him missing 1 game

    I'd argue that a fully fit Arsenal squad is the best in the league after Chelsea. Yes I include City in that.

    Not sure that I could say the same thing without doubt, but I'm glad some of their players are finally being exposed as overrated. Kompany comes to mind.

    Yeah on Fifa.

    but not in real life, due to the defensive imbalance in the team due to not having an adequate defensive midfielder. It doesn't matter on FIFA because you can just play Wilshere-Arteta, and this doesnt reflect how bad they are in real life as defensive midfielders.

    I agree with the pace argument, but Gibbs and Monreal are the same height I don't think their aerial ability is going to be that different, if anything Monreal's will be better due to his stints at CB.

    Gibbs may be better offensively, but I'd rather have Monreal defensively speaking tbh, the way he plays 2 v 1 situations is pretty astounding, when it comes to jockeying the man on the ball whilst tracking the runner there isn't any fullback I've seen that comes close imo
