    Can honestly see Wenger moving for Messi in January so we have more depth in the squad

    wonder if Leicester is the new hipster team for continental football fans to support, like Dortmund and Atleti :holmes:
    It's actually Arsenal

    75% of continentals at my uni were sympathetic. Holland 33pc, Germany 50/50 AFC/LFC

    Slept through the game so have no idea how we played, but happy with the 3 points. Especially with teams around us dropping points as well.

    8 goals and assists so far, an excellent record.
    5 goals, pretty much all pens = fraud.

    Anyone else buzzing that Santi is out for 3 months? Ramsey looked vastly superior in the middle today, absolutely fantastic player who can bring Giroud into the game even further. Poor overall performance, Bellerin had a shocker, so much so that I'd suggest dropping him after Olympiakos, caught out of position sooooo many times, in no man's land 90% of the time, poor awareness and positioning, his pace covers up many of his flaws. He's been very solid on the most part so hopefully he just had a poor game, because it really was a stinker.
    Cech bailed us out tbh, superb from him, nice finish from Campbell too

    Is Cazorla a fraud too then? He almost never scores from open play.

    Him playing in a deeper role instead of no 10 is pretty much why

    Loved Arsenal fans saying Hazard only ever scores from penalties for the last two season shen every Cazorla goal last season was one. Good Premier League player, but will never be a Champions League level one.

    Cazorla is a CM though, he is hardly going to get as much chances from open play than players who play further forward.

    Hazard plays on the wing or in behind the striker, he should be scoring/assisting from open play and not scoring all his goals from pens. Cazorla is playing CM/DLP hence not scoring much at all beyond pens, I wouldn't be expecting him to really.

    Depends what you mean by CL level...he's probably not CL winner quality but he's certainly not average by CL standards.

    He simply doesn't perform in the Champioms League, the weaknesses in his game are more obvious and he fails to make any impression against the big teams.

    Leicester are doing really well for them to be top. But they're next 4 fixtures are against, Chelsea, Everon, Liverpool then Man City. If they could get at least 7 points from those fixtures I'll be impressed.

    They'll beat Chelsea, Mou can't resist a jibe at ranieri like he did in Italy and that'll go against him. Everton, at least a draw, Liverpool, more beatable if match is at anfield, city, they've been a bit weak recently.

    Not only is he crucial to your play, but he's crucial to Ozil's play.

    No two players have interchanged more passes in 2015/16 than that pair, but Ozil rose to the occasion well without his partner in crime today. A really good result for Arsenal after a week where all the talk was of how they would struggle.

    Tend to always go north bank - got tickets for the clock end this time. Swear it's quieter than the north bank.

    Atmosphere in general is a ****ing disgrace - I really do miss Highbury

    I really do feel for Ox, you can see how much confidence he's lacking. Doesn't even attempt to take players on any more. I really do hope he snaps out of it - there will come a time when he'll shine imo.

    Ramsey, I felt, played well today, should have had a hat trick.

    What's the update on Jack, anyone know? Will easily slot in to our team tbh, especially with Santi out. I presume Aaron would go central and Jack will play on the right.

    Özil is just magnificent, but it's getting boring saying that. sr90 Sr90 Sucks BBC sr90isa******

    Ngl, gutted I never went to Highbury. I love the allure of old stadiums. I managed to get to Filbert Street, Maine Road, Burnden Park and Highfield Road during my childhood with my dad and brother, but I loved the Subutteo-esque nature of Highbury. It was so small and compact.

    Hahaha I meant that I literally slept through it. Had rugby in the morning and was exhausted. Didn't have a ticket for today anyway so it was sweet.

    Imo Clock End has a good atmosphere too - best in the ground outside of North Bank. I normally stand there as you can tell by my name and back of blocks 25, 26, 27 are particularly lively. Rocking for big games.
