The Official Arsenal Thread - Part 2

Ffs m8, Marco only visits places with no INTERNET.

Obviously a pub showing English football is a non starter in these black hole of Calcutta locations.
Like yourself so.

Anyways, back to arsenal things...

Listening to arsenal vision today and Clive's take on xhaka was quiet similar to mine. Long story short, he was constantly played out of position (left back like ffs) and played with players with a bad attitude.

But because he played where he was told and felt responsible for everything he was over stretching himself which led to his crazy moments.

Now he's playing his natural position amongst players that leave it all on the pitch and everyone's praising him to high heavens.

So, do ye think there's revisionism going on with the current happy mood?

No point asking the lads , they've never seen him play.
 
Finally got home and watched the whole game.

Very impressed with Vieira, clever player and puts in the defensive work too.
Martinelli didn’t have his best attacking game but his work rate was insane defensively and he worked his ass off.

Ramsdale’s passing was superb for this match, he had virtually no saves to make though.

83rd minute “A stroll in the park,

A stroll in the paaaark,

Ivan Toney, a stroll in the park.” Smashing banter.

Jesus is an absolute joy to watch. So unpredictable.

The 15 year old looks about 19.

It’s a weird one but I don’t think we were at our best today attacking wise, this game could have been 0-5 if we clicked a bit better.
But what we were was a well oiled machine where it’s clearly the system that’s the most important part. Our fighting and teamwork was phenomenal and we are going to click for some games this season and embarrass certain teams.

Partey didn’t have his best game but we definitely play so much better when he’s there.

Xhaka is the leader but Jesus, Gabriel, Odegaard, White, Tierney and Ramsdale are also leaders.

Vieira is a very good player, he wasn’t as involved as Odegaard normally would be but I’m surprised he hasn’t been mentioned more after the game, that was a solid game and fantastic goal.

Saliba is scary good and Saka had a very good game and was probably unlucky not to score.

On a final note, we are really good now and the players that came in seamlessly fitted with the game plan. We are not being lucky being currently top of the league and our aim of top 4 is well on track.

And Zinchenko and Odegaard to come back.
