    Naa mate football doesn't work like that. Fulham away is always going to be a tough game you can't just write them off

    im not writing them off as such... but if arsenal fans cant look at a team like fulham, within the last 5 games, and think 'that should be a fairly safe victory' - then they really have slipped away from the team I remember them being..

    Tbh the premierleague has become better and your talking like Arsenal hasn't struggled in the past seasons at Craven Cottage. Plus it is a London derby you cannot just say it is a safe victory lol

    Now we're playing with grit and desire, the lack of quality in front of goal is accentuated... I think we can take Fulham though, why shouldn't I think that, let's not lose all confidence. Also, come Sunday I'll be a City fan.

    Szczesny
    Sagna - mertesacker - new centre back - monreal
    Walcott - wilshere - new defensive mid - cazorla
    Jovetic
    Benteke

    Or:

    Szczesny
    Sagna - mertesacker - new centre back - Montreal
    New defensive mid - wilshere
    Walcott - jovetic - cazorla
    Benteke

    Giroud is such a donkey. Why on earth do we only have one striker?

    Thought we were poor (again)

    Giroud was bad and fluffed his lines badly when chances came his way and while it is right to say that a clinicial finisher would have dug us out I would rather we played better and didn't have to leave it down to a world class striker to bail us out tbh
    Played better? C'mon, Everton are a good team and we created some very good chances for Giroud. You're not going to walk all over Everton, if you miss chances, it'll end up costing you. It's funny that Everton think they'll get 4th by going for draws in every single game except when they play the relegation teams.

    To be fair I am probably doing Everton a disservice Jagielka and Coleman especially but I just don't think we really did well Giroud had a couple of chances yea but not that many. We let them bully us out of it for most of the first half then they got tired and spaces opened up and we couldn't capitalise. Walcott and Wilshere were both pretty poor in the final 3rd and Santi only showed flashes which was the main problem

    Yeah..... We're not going to get benzema and I'd rather use mertesacker unless the new cb is a leader as mert is more of a leader than kos

    4-4-1-1 is what we used earlier

    I thought Arsenal were heavily linked with Benzema a few years whilst he was at Lyon, but just didn't bid.
    Seemed like it was another of those 'scout a really promising young player for a few years but not make a bid because they've became good and now cost too much' scenarios.

    Benteke is rather good, and he'll improve, and won't cost a lot.

    I'd like to see us go for Higuain in the summer, there are rumours flying around that he wants to leave.

    One of the main reasons though for me wanting him to go to Arsenal is it means Lukaku will have to keep performing at a high level for Chelsea to stay in Belgium's starting 11, it'd be easier if Benteke stayed at Villa, so there's a benefit for me too.

    Benteke also has one of the highest goals per minute ratio in the EPL (Higher than Giroud/Podolski) and he's not exactly got the best of supporting casts behind him. He'd be a good buy in my opinion. Just some fans get put off that he's being bought from Villa, rather than buying from a more exotic/prestigious club.

    Those fans are morons, Benteke will be one of the epl's best strikers at a team like arsenal... He's got it all ans he's young, and he's proven he can do it in this league. I can see the likes of benzema, higuain being complete flops too.

    Apparently for some people he is not a big name so he is not good enough

    I watched the last half an hour. It was just full of giroud missing chances and everton parking bus and it then got to a point where you just accepted it was a 0-0. At least you were penetrating I guess... Also is it me or do you just up the tempo in the last 20mins of a match? It's how almost all of your home games have been.
