    So that'll be Ramsey out for the season and Sanchez out for 4 weeks minimum...
    Have a feeling you'll be knocked out by Monaco at this rate.

    Carrasco to do a madness.

    are you crazy? Miss out on our only chance of winning something.. especially when most of the big clubs are out already..
    Top 4 is much more vital then an FA cup. I couldn't imagine not being in the CL next year and we lose so much draw from attracting players.

    Don't think we'll miss Ramsey this season esp with Wilshere back. Ozil has looked quite impressive so far and Walcott seems to be up to pace. Think we'll be just about ok without Sanchez too but our fixtures are supposedly "forgiving"

    if we cant focus on doing both, then wenger should go right now, and we should all give up.

    Last year, with a weaker squad we managed both. no reason at all why a club as big as arsenal needs to focus on only one competition
    We didn't have a weaker squad. Maybe player for player but our depth was up there to compete for both. I'm pretty sure injuries have hurt us a lot more this season then last.




    Also yeah, I don't think anyone should be getting comfortable with our upcoming fixtures. Pretty much all the lower placed teams are going to be fighting for survival, meanwhile we've got 9 of them. The game against Leicester yesterday should tell you enough that it isn't going to be easy.

    Any game we expect to win we end up getting rolled over tbh. Think Monaco will do a job on us

    Some good analysis on why Theo is a bit **** towards the bottom here.

    6 passes in 72 minutes and less touches than a striker on for 50 mins less than you isn't enough of a contribution.

    They are completely different players so where have you got this awful idea from?

    That's because theo is a player who likes to finish a build up than be a player who contributes to the build up. He's one of the few who does that for us. He's not the type to dribble past 2-3 players and make a nice pass that's whte we have ox as he's different in that regard.

    It's weird tho I remember Walcott the season before last running alot more with the ball and taking players on but I don't know if it's because he's been out so long we don't see it often now. He has 3 goals in 3 games mind one being the winning goal against Leicster.

    That's great, but in today's more competitive league we can't afford to have a player who just sits up top and waits for the ball to come to him, and even if we could, we could do a lot better than Theo - with the amount of chances he's had, a better striker than him would have taken 6 goals in his past three games. Not to mention the times Theo has chosen to run into a defender rather than make a pass to his left or right.

    I remember for the second Tottenham goal, Theo was closest to the guy who sent in a great cross for Kane to head in. Did Theo try to close him down? No, he just stood there watching and gave the guy all the time in the world to send in a perfect cross. At least run at him and put the guy under some pressure.

    Whilst I don't think Walcott played great last night, it's quite a poor argument in my opinion. Sure, he didn't complete many passes and didn't have loafs of touches, but that's not his role in the team. He's a player who should be quiet for long periods and then do a great run and get the ball and score (think he should have done better with the first chance after that Ozil ball but he's only started 3 games since injury). For example, take Balotelli in that 2-0 win for Italy in the Euros a few years back, he hardly did anything in terms of passes and touches yet scored 2 goals from 2 chances iirc.

    It's like we've got to pick a different player to **** on each day, even after a win. The team has missed Theo massively while he's been out and now he's back, scoring a couple of goals in his first couple of starts, and people still wanna complain.

    Lol arsenal fans are fickle and will pick on any player that's not their favourite. Just like how they'd blame players all the time and not give any to te manager.

    Oh **** yeah I remember arteta got the most stick here whenever we lost a match. He would be on the bench all game and would still get blamed for a loss.

    He's young and has spent a large amount of his career injured. There's no medical reason why he has to hold back involvement in order to reserve energy.

    It doesn't come close to explaining 6 passes in 72 minutes.

    Arsenal fans gonna Arsenal fan



    btw not saying it's bad for Walcott to be less involved, just saying your explanation is laughable. If he's scoring goals after a long term injury, I got no idea why anyone is complaining

    He just strikes me as lazy defensively, he's got the pace to transition from defence to attack quicker than anyone else on the pitch. Hard to say for sure but it just seems more of a general apathetic attitude to defending rather than a poor level of fitness. There's no real excuse for not tracking back in the PL anymore.

    More likely to be able to run forward and get into positions if he doesn't get tired as the game progresses, or isn't too far back in the pitch? :confused:
    It was simply one person complaining. Carry on with your Arsenal fan agenda though :rolleyes:

    Surely his injury problems(with an ACL injury in particular) may mean that he won't want to spend loads of time doing high intensity sprints as well as having to drop deeper and get involved with the play? He might be wanting to take it easy. Or he may not be fully match fit as of yet.
