He Rosickyd.

Due to system restrictions we can only add 15 players so we give Flamini a 7 and Joel Campbell a 6 but mostly because he only got about 5 minutes. Bonus ratings will resume when the season begins.

  1. Analyzed Giroud’s goal in great detail. Definitely no deflection. There’s one camera angle that makes it look like it because the shot and initial flight are hidden by a City defender’s leg. But you can tell from the swerve, trajectory and the spin on the ball that there was no deflection.

  2. Wenger should get som credit, putting wilshere on, and pretty much man marking, Toure took him out of the game. Obviously great job by Jack to make good on the game plan

    • the huge difference it makes when buying players who have either played here for a few seasons or are bred here, no settling in period needed, still think caulker would have been a great buy and can’t think of a DEF we cld get from EPL anyway, Agger is shit for me, way to similar to what we just sold. Winston Reid cld be short term answer, but for me if versatility is the buzz word then I’d go full tilt for Daley Blind

    • The three players I was most impressed with were Debuchy, Chambers, and Gibbs. No disrespect to Kos, who was solid-as-always, but those three managed to really stand out.

      I think Debuchy and an improved Gibbs are going to give us an added impetus going forward. I have a feeling that this is going to be an exciting season!!!

      • Yeah I was having same conversation with a mugsmasher mate of mine earlier. But Rodgers is a better manager than Spurs had so they might not suffer as much. And Spurs are just naturally a pile of turd even if they do spend 100m it’s just like buying a more expensive turd.

    • In fairness to Michael Owen – I say that, but you should never be fair to Michael Owen – he did actually defend us when the commentator said “we should point out that City are missing players today”. He pointed out that Arsenal are too. Maybe redemption isn’t out of the question. Although how we can go from “won’t make the top four” to “title contenders” in his estimations is anyone’s guess.

      Thumb up 39 Thumb down 0

      • Michael Owen would not consider us title contenders if we have eleven Peles playing for us. He’s a biased twat, pure and simple.

      • One of the most shockingly impressive things about Chambers game was his first time clearances/passes, never seen such quick vision and composure from a 19 year old CB or whatever position he is, to have a ball player at the back like that will add a whole new dimension to the team. Like with Lovren at Liverpool, Kompany at city it just gives you another option to find players further forward without going through the usual cb – dm – fb – etc etc… He picked out Sanchez for instance on several occasions, starting quick counters when most CBs or even full backs would just hoof it. I’m sure he could play DM but to have someone as good as he might be at CB is the way forward for me, future England CB if he keeps playing there. Debuchy right now is better than Sagna, simple as that. And like Sagna, Vermaelen fails to get in the belgium line up regularly, which isn’t a coincidence, to get 15 mill for him was great business. Great game, Wilshere was one of the nicest things for me, from start to finish he ran his nuts off but without doing anything reckless for once, this is the first time both he and Ramsey are fully fit to start a season with both having at least one decent season behind them. So good to see them I think Wenger will find it hard to split them up in midfield, must be a dream for him seeing them all ready to take Arsenal forward now. Ramsey could play dm easy now, and still make the odd late run into the box, he only made one today and he scored. Tackled like a beast, muscled every 50/50, passed simple when needed, has the best stamina in the team, and just seems more responsible, composed and a leader more than anything. What are the characteristics/attributes we are looking for in a DM again? And how many attacking mids do we have? my hopeful midfield 3 is Ramsey Wilshere
        Ozil

        Thumb up 18 Thumb down 0

        • A lot of the fouls on Wilshere are nervy so the officials have to be ‘worked’ as matches progress. But I think Toure showed class in that respect. No offense to SB, Stoke is another matter entirely … :-P

    • Makes me laugh how BBC talk about their absentees.. “However, he was not helped by the absence of Vincent Kompany, Pablo Zabaleta, Fernandinho, Sergio Aguero, Martin Demichelis, Frank Lampard, Bacary Sagna and Alvaro Negredo for the game.” How ever did they cope without their back up right back, a striker who hasn’t scored for six months and a player signed only to get their squad in line with regulations about homegrown talent?! I’d wager that their team still cost significantly more than ours, particularly without Ozil. On a less cynical note, Calum Chambers is absolutely unreal, enjoyed his performance more than Sanchez’s, who I thought was equally great. Trying desperately not to, but difficult to not get carried away about this season..

  7. Definitely thought Gibbs was top notch. His defending (mainly his proximity) was relentless. Chambers and Kos looked great together. Debuchy was a little suspect a couple times, let’s hope that gets sorted. Sanchez’s counter attacking won’t let teams press us so high. This is exciting

  11. Wilshire was such a foul magnet today. He’s got the moves and skill to blow by opponents, but not enough speed to avoid being hauled to the ground.

    We will continue to beat the rubbish teams this season as well I think. But will need to do better against the top 4. would like us to at least be even the time we play all the big teams. So we take 3 at least from the 2 games we play against City, Liverpool Chelsea and united

    Thumb up 13 Thumb down 0

  13. Alexis was my Motm..really set the tone for the game early on with his pressing..at one point he was pressing high, then sprinted back to help Debuchy as City countered. This type of play will be invaluable and infectious this year.
    On top of his stellar defence, he was integral in the first 2 goals..the second of which saw him sprinting from the back, receiving a PERFECT Wilshere pass, then making his own perfect through ball to Sonogo who found “the Man” Ramsey for the nice goal.
    Chambers was awesome too..great reader of the situation..Dzeko schooled him on that one play, but Chambers can only learn from that.

    Thumb up 25 Thumb down 4

  14. Was impressed with Szczesny coming off his line today seems Ospina’s arrival has got him on his toes. Debuchy looks a great replacement for Sagna quality defensively and going forward with some crunching challenges and great crosses. Gibbs looks like he’s improving all the time. koscielny still looks a little lacking fitness but Chambers looks like the stand out buy so far. His composure and reading of the game for a 19 year old are unreal looks like a future Arsenal and England captain for sure. Still have my doubts about Arteta and think we’re short a DM Wilshire done a good job on Toure and Alexis looks like he adds a lot to our attack. Anyone else know hoe Giroud got MOM??? Really excited about this season!!!

  17. Chambers looks like he has all the qualities to play the defensive midfield role Wenger hinted at giving him last week, though it would be a lot to ask of a teenager who’s only just joined. On the other hand, nothing has fazed him so far. At the very least, a midfield pair of Chambers and Ramsey would keep all the lady Gooners happy, I’m sure.

  23. The numpties in the media bleating on about City missing 8 key players.

    We were missing our 3 World Cup winning Germans. Also missing Theo Walcott. And a Cback in lieu of Vermaelen’s departure and Diaby who should at very least count for fat Lamps.

    That’s 6 there.

    Don’t see the media making too big a case of the fact that City had no English players and what they had were clearly second grade players bought at high price to make up numbers. Rodwell anyone?

    In contrast, the media derided Arsenal way is to bring in British players and school them to be competitive with the world’s best. Hence Gibbs, Chambers, Jack, Ramsey, Chamberlain today.

    Oh and a big shout to Southampton. Cheers.:)

    Thumb up 11 Thumb down 1

  24. So no more media bleating on about our last trophy then.

    For those still bleating on about us needing a strapping atheletic type in DM the likes of MVila, Wanyama, Gustavo and recently Carvalho, clean sheet.

    Sure it was a make shift City squad but we were playing 4 wingbacks at one stage in defense.

    1) Arteta is going no where. He is captain and more importantly, it would be extremely risky to replace him as someone most familiar to our main Cback pairing of Meterscielny this late into season. Besides, he hardly put a foot wrong.

    2) Flamini and Chambers will compete to back up Arteta in DM. That’s 3 players for one spot. Diaby (if he stays which is likely…if he is available which is more debatable) will be the fourth.

    3) Jack, Rosciky, Ramsey (and erm Diaby) will provide link play in Central midfield

    4) Alexis. As the gaffer mentioned again today, he will play on the flanks. Frankly and in all due deference to Santi who was amazing again, Alexis is his replacement a season or two down. he is best played from RW (as with Chile) and unless in special circumstances will not be as profitable as a centre forward being 5’7 (that’s about an inch taller than Santi)

    5) Giroud. those numpties who keep deriding his quality (the media) should do well to remember he has a greater goal tally than Cavanni or Negredo. Plus he has a very good assist rate. That strike today won’t silent their arse headed comments but should serve as a reminder to us at least that Giroud is quality. Good to see the lively Campbell on for a short bit as well, i think he will give us an option up top in time. Sanogo is extremely promising but frankly it will do his progression good if he could play regularly on loan for this season. Not urgent but if we can find a striker late on in market for good value to price, we should grab one. Falcao and Cavanni are in particular still unsettled.

    6) BIG Priority and one that has laways been since start of summer. We need a CBACK.

    We were fortunate both with Giroud and Meterscielny last season in not getting any major knocks. This season Chambers is ample cover as an understudy + 4th choice Cback but we need one of quality to come in and rotate through Meterscielny. Someone like Hummels should prove lucrative and we should compete for his signature with United. They do not have CL to offer courtesy of the fourth spot pot much derided.

    30m minus vermaelen’s fee at 15m = 15m which is extremely decent for one of the best Cbacks in the world and one whom at 25 is median age between the up coming promise of Chambers, Miquel or Hayden and the aging stalwarts in Per and Koscielny.

    This is our most urgent requirement at the moment.

    Thumb up 13 Thumb down 4

  25. Good showing by both Chambers and Debuchy today.

    There is a reason why Sagna is being kept out of the French squad not that it matters to most media pundits.

    They will discount our chances of silverware because we have lost Vermaelen…not like we won’t reinforce.

    Love the extra dimension Alexis gives us.

    As mentioned we were without certain assets against big teams last season.

    Wenger did not have an asset next to Arteta or Flamini that could make a difference bc both Jack or Ramsey deployed were ask to attack further up field so as not to isolate Girud.

    This season we have more speed on the flanks and threat with Alexis in. This will afford both jack, Ramsey (or for the matter Rosicky or Diaby) better ability to support the main DM which was our issue last season (DM was isolated and overwhelmed because we were attempting to press too high)

    We don’t need to press quite as high now with the assets we have out wide. And Giroud has competition both in Sanogo and Campbell as laternative approaches (not to mention Podolski or Alexis can now also be deployed in tandem with one of the CFs)

    We have a lot more options up front and the first 25 minutes of this game was back to the Arsenal of old.

    Loving it.

    Charity shield is a glorified piece of silverware but it’s a shiny plate nonetheless and it will give us great impetus to assault the summit this season.

  28. Giroud touching the ball all of like 3 times in the whole game and getting Man of the Match tells you just how low the caliber of “analysis” on BT sport is.

I’m sure he could play DM but to have someone as good as he might be at CB is the way forward for me, future England CB if he keeps playing there. Debuchy right now is better than Sagna, simple as that. And like Sagna, Vermaelen fails to get in the belgium line up regularly, which isn’t a coincidence, to get 15 mill for him was great business. Great game, Wilshere was one of the nicest things for me, from start to finish he ran his nuts off but without doing anything reckless for once, this is the first time both he and Ramsey are fully fit to start a season with both having at least one decent season behind them. So good to see them I think Wenger will find it hard to split them up in midfield, must be a dream for him seeing them all ready to take Arsenal forward now. Ramsey could play dm easy now, and still make the odd late run into the box, he only made one today and he scored. Tackled like a beast, muscled every 50/50, passed simple when needed, has the best stamina in the team, and just seems more responsible, composed and a leader more than anything. What are the characteristics/attributes we are looking for in a DM again? And how many attacking mids do we have? my hopeful midfield 3 is Ramsey Wilshere
    Ozil

  30. I’m really hoping Jack can step up this season. Especially if we don’t sign a proper DM. He gets slotted in there next to Arteta, and he always seems so casual on the ball. Must cut out the turnovers and pickup his defensive work rate.
