    What is it with this Messi phenomenon? Generally he's the best player around, but last nights game... his goals were basically Darren Bent-esque.

    He ran, really fast, in a straight line. Only when he got to a one on one did he show immense technique, the only non Darren Bent component of his goals.

    The chip and his first strike were individually fantastic, but generally he did little in the way of amazing dribbles through players/slaloming around...

    Richard Keys seemed to be having an orgasm over his quality... but last night wasn't really evident of anything but the fact that he is very fast and can score when the ball bobbles off somebody and into his path, somewhat fortuitously.

    Only his shots themselves were unstoppable. For Almunia anyway, who made all the tough decisions for him... mostly by slipping over and allowing the chip-rape.

    Precisely, his finishing was sublime and it was a brilliant strikers performance but it's not like he cut us open. Whenever he dribbled it was a bobble fest

    I totally agree, it was hardly one of his best games for barcelona but sky sports were going on like it was the greatest perfomance of all time.

    It kind of reminds me of arshavin's 4 goals at anfield. He played **** the whole game scored four from 5 attempts and sky sports just went OTT.

    Maybe i'll join all these Arsenal obsessed anti-fans and become a full time WUM, post constant rubbish
    Aye, it seems quite pathetic.

    My guess would be that they're too thick to derive some success from their own lives so they have to ride on the back of a sport team's (in this case Barcelona) in order to make themselves feel better.

    ****wits.

    Man Utd: yet to play but down on agg
    Chelsea: knocked out of Europe before the quarters
    Liverpool: well...
    and any other teams really aren't in this league of WUM-age.

    He's actually done very well with his resources. Splendidly infact.
    Your right, I just decided it would be best to keep the insults on a childish, factless level so that Tsuk didn't become confused.

    And he at least has the sensibility to admit where another team has bested his. If I now go on to explain how Benitez is incapable of accepting criticism of his own methods, I'll be accused to trying to change the subject :facepalm2:

    Wrt strong defensive midfielder... Well, have you heard our Song? We've only got one ffs...
    My point exactly. Wengers refusal to stick someone in there who can do the job properly, means your team gets overpowered at times thanks to your cavaleir footballing approach.

    Just because someone makes a point you don't agree with, doesn't mean they are a WUM.

    It's equally pathetic how quickly you all decide that someone is on the WUM, just because they havent posted something about nice passing triangles, or Arsene Wengers incredible talent for spotting youngsters.

    Just because someone has a negative point to make on your side, doesn't mean they are on a WU. I asked what you thought about Wengers reluctance to play a proper DM, but I was intrigued what you thought. Not so I could have a amusing image in my head of RobbieC headbutting the keyboard.

    I don't think you should be taking potshots at peoples back up striker, when you have '4 sitters for a goal' Nicholas Bendtner.

    Another trophyless season. Well done Arsene Wenger
    We are in contention for the EPL. As for the trophy jibe, liverpool hasnt won anything last season. Not only will they not win anyting this season they will not take the 4th CL spot. Besides you folks have spent more money on transfers and player wages than arsenal, and we still clowning on you.

    Gerrard and torres will leave, when they do liverpool will only sink lower and lower, the next thing you know youll be battling relegation

    Bendtner clowns on Ngog over and over again

    Playing the victim?

    ****in' shocker.

    I was just making a general point from the **** I've been glancing over from yesterday and today.

    Now, having read through your comments -- The point about the DM was silly. Our two most resilient and toughest CMs (Cesc and Song) are injured. They're not injury-prone. It's realistic to think that you can't account for that sort of loss with like-for-like substitutes and thus accept that you're going to be weaker going into the game. Our DM was Denilson and when he did try to stick a foot-in and made an excellent sliding challenge early on, he was booked. It's then reasonable to assume that he feels if he makes another such challenge, he'll be booked again and get sent off.

    If you have seen any Arsenal game this season, you'll know the pretty triangle **** is hardly ever on display. We are now seeing a more gritty, physical [add any other token footballing words that northerners love here] side. We haven't been pretty to watch. A midfield of Song, Diaby and Cesc doesn't suggest 'technical ability', it suggests 'physicality', and if you want proof -- ask any pub teams we've played this season because we've dispatched them with relative ease.

    In sum, yeah, you're talking rubbish. There is no 'reluctance to play a DM' from Arsene. It's an old, useless argument. Out-dated by 15 months. These days it's almost the reverse -- we can easily pick up points against the cloggers but get played off the park by sides like Chelsea and Barcelona. And this is why we're 3 points off top place, with Arsene recognising how you're supposed to play against Hull, Stoke etc.

    But it makes no sense as we regularly play Song in defensive midfield, he was just injured last night so Denilson took that role. However, Denilson is not a great DM and would be better off in the Cesc or Diaby role, which is why the defence didn't get much protection yesterday.

    Thinking about the summer. Sellduardo,Merdia,Vela,Senderos and slyvestre. Bring in a good striker in addition to Chamak, also a central defender, a goalie and maybe a DM.

    Wasn't that easy? You could of just done that the first time, instead of breaking down into tears over WUMs.
