    How often have you watched us play..
    Everytime ive watched Arsenal play, hes been the standout player. Admittedly ive only watched a handful of games so my opinion might be skewed.

    Someone remind me. Did Alexis play in our 5-0 win over Villa? No point telling me "Yeah but Villa are crap anyways and you lots were at home" it doesn't make a difference.
    nah, ozil played LW

    Was a great result today from my perspective.

    But from an Arsenal one, it was so weird for me seeing Arsenal play that way. Inviting us onto them, playing on the break. I obviously don't watch a lot of Arsenal games outside of derby day, so I wasn't really aware of this 'new' Arsenal way.

    This approach is nothing new tbh. We've went into games the same way several times this season. Thing is when it doesn't work people are fast to blame Wenger, and when it does they're saying "Wenger's found his plan B!" :rolleyes:

    On paper we should have won this game. Player for player we had by far the better side so there's no excuses really. Not to shed all the blame on Wenger but if we want to start contending we need a completely new tactical approach, as a few signings aren't going to be enough on their own. Wenger should go at the end of the season.

    Sanchez does not dictate our attacking play as I've said before. He also loses the ball more often then anyone else (probably bar Ox or Jack). He's been at the right place at the right time, or scored some great freekicks/wondergoals but that doesn't mean we can't score without him. He's scored some important goals but there have been countless amount of times we've won games without him actually impacting them much (City is a clear example). Anyways today isn't the first time we've played like this. We tried the same thing against Liverpool and City. Pool manage to press very well and contain us where as City's midfield weren't even close. Even with Sanchez on today I don't think the result would have been any different.
    This really.

    Sanchez is a good player though but he doesn't dictate the attacking. Players like Cazorla/Rosicky do.

    Yeah ive read it . Still feels like your go to man when you need something though. Sometimes (and its hard to admit) it feels like we got the wrong South American.

    I read this thread, turns out after the Man City match only one user suggested Arsenal would catch Chelsea in the title race. (But then of course, that's what rivals do. Use the G word)
    Only one user yeah?

    If we win tomorrow, we are 11 points off the top. Late title charge. 15 games thereafter to make up 11 points.

    Tbh if we win tomorrow we're only 11 points off Chelski.

    Now I know this may sound stupid but I think we may have a very extremely tiny small chance of still challenging for the title and I'm pretty sure Wenger does too. It is plausible considering our run of fixtures is generally very easy up until April or so. If we can maintain some consistency to our good form than we could easily be looking at a second place finish as I'm pretty sure the teams around us will be dropping a LOT of points, Chelski included.

    You missed Cazorla's influence today. It won't happen every week - we've seen your current system work at Man City and home to Villa, but the fact it was a derby meant that Tottenham played with a unique, fierce intensity you struggle to match. Santi was squeezed out of the game, unable to influence, and you were second to a very determined Spurs side.

    Welbeck over Walcott was a shrewd move from Wenger. It worked, too, judging on Ozil's opener. Sometimes there can be a case made for a side scoring too early and I think you were probably guilty of that today.

    Point was that we aren't a one man team Ffs. Sanchez wouldn't have changed the result today as said

    Damn, even AFTV was ****, was hoping Claude would be fired up, but he was just like I was after the defeat, quietly disappointed and accepting of the fact that we were outplayed and the changs haven't been drastic, same old sorry performance in a tough fixture.

    Still next few weeks are crucial, have to bounce back against Leicester smash Middlesbrough and get past Monaco without any major injuries
