  2. 1 – of those 2 goals conceded at Emirates in last 13 games is a Penalty
    100 -% guranteed Red Card was it Flamini instead of Gerrard for Elbow on Flam and tackle on Ox

  8. Can’t wait for Wednesday, I wonder who will play on the wings and defensive midfield, other than that the team pretty much selects itself… Hope Poldi will get a second half runout because everyone already knows he won’t start! Stopping Götze and the gargoyle will be key!

    Brilliant.

    And Arteta and Flamini shouldn’t start together…

    Thumb up 39 Thumb down 0

    • Normally I don’t like Arteta and Flamini together, because it leaves Ozil and the CF isolated. But after just shipping 5 to Pool I was extremely happy to see it on the team sheet today!

  17. “0 – Goals Luis Suarez has scored on Arsenal, Liverpool, Man U, and Man City so far this season”

    In fairness, it’s no bad thing for him that he’s not scored against Liverpool.

    Thumb up 47 Thumb down 2

  18. So Suarez has not scored against Liverstool? Never an OG?

    For us in the states, it reminded me of how I do not miss Fox. The commenters were clueless with their remarks about Ozil’s recent run, and how awful Monreal was, which is why Gibbs was brought on.

    Didn’t Liverstool have a lot of shots in the top space? Box, front, etc.? Seemed to me Arsenal were letting a lot in.

    Skirtel confirmed he had an Ashley Young “Once in your life” brace last time.

  19. I take it you were as impressed with Sanogo (on his first start against a team that pulled our pants down last time out at a time when we’re under pressure for underperformance) as I was then?

  20. Looking at goal.com’s (yuck) top 10 most read articles at the moment, 5 of them (yes, five) are of Mourinho talking shit about Arsenal in the last 3 days. Yes, five. I know it’s just goal.com, but it’s staggering how much this idiot has to say. He’s losing it.

  21. They can’t start together because Arteta is suspended from his red card vs Napoli.
    Team will likely be Schez, Merty,Kos, Sagna, Gibbs, Flamini, ozil, wilshere, Ox, Santi, giroud.

  23. lovely to see that the flamini and arteta partnership grew in this game.. flamini sat.. arteta charged.. i think defined roles for the two was important. Also sonago looks a real gem.. first time i have seen him play and was very curious.. i think he has got raw potential.. pace power movement.. the boy could be the future.. podolski needs to start more

    Thumb up 10 Thumb down 0

    • It seems that each midfield pairing has to find the balance. Sometimes it is easy: if Ramsey is one, the other just lets them get on with it. If both are used to holding, it might be harder to break the habit — It should be obvious for Arteta to drive on, but he’s been doing the holding (?) role for so long now its breaking a habit

  25. Re:Flamini maturity. Surely you are being sarcastic. One more Tackle might have seen him sent off.

    Thumb up 4 Thumb down 6

    • But he didn’t get sent off. That’s what I mean. He still played hard and on the edge but never lost his cool, even after being provoked multiple times by Gerrard and others. A mature performance.

  27. Sure, Suarez da vampire wouldn’t have scored against his own team though I still wished he came to #Arsenal because #Giroud sucks. See how #Sanogo plays? Like a man with blood, after 6 months with non-competithve football. #Wenger should give him more time & that #Giroud dude should not be left in the pitch for 90′, mostly on days he sucks. He has got no competition & he is been #SoLazy. *#Flamini! Yes, his maturity made him not to see a red card. *Webb, ouch! P8, W2, L6 & D1, that should be 9 then? Don’t let Sagna, Fabianski, Podolski & Vermalen go, they can make the team great!

  34. Although I’m not one of them fans to judge a player before I’ve even seen him play, I did worry about Yaya Sanogo starting his first game for the Arsenal in such circumstances where the crowd seemed a bit restless after two fairly disappointing results. A few misplaced passes could have had the crowd on his back but his first touch was brilliant as he rose 10ft in the air to bring the ball down onto his chest like an Olympic flying swan. Huge credit to him for taking this unexpected opportunity with both hands and showing everyone he’s not here to make up the numbers. Also respect to the crowd for getting right behind the team despite a shakey start, these players need us right behind them if we’re to have successful season. Bring on zee germanz (the nasty munchen ones, not the lovely ones that play for our beloved team)

    • I actually thought Cazorla, who I think is otherwise brilliant, was trying to audition a new technique for NASA space launches. He of course needed to wait for the right high profile game and right moment (when we were in the lead during a match) to give it a proper viewing and not effect negatively the club. ;) ;) ;)

  38. That’s a very nice display by arsenal players. I also want to use this avenue to appeal to Wenger our head coach to know the players he will use against Bayern Munich on Wednesday. Giroud is a good player but he lack speed in his play, so I would advice that he don’t start the march because those we are meeting (the German) side are good in fast football, which is one of their technics in winning their matches.
