I loved watching the gooners today, didn’t deserve to concede either. I think we should all make it a gooner public holiday the day the BFG scores his first goal. You could tell he was desperate to get on the score sheet for us tonight

I notice this with RVP and Podolski.
RVP, when tackled or fouled, went on complaining to the referee, or sulked.
Podolski, when tackled or fouled went on playing and went to tackle back and just tried to get the ball back. What is more, I saw how happy he is playing for Arsenal. I did not see that kind of happiness in RVP’s face (and also in Cesc’s face) some months before he was actually transferred out.

Can we just admire at how amazing our defence is right now? Not a single mistake from anyone all game long. Mertesacker keeping Kos out of the team shows how much of a world class player he is. Jenkinson is efficient.

And Poldi is just lovable isn’t he? He was just unplayable in the first half. Absolute class.

Dick Swiveller
Dick Swiveller

It actually freaks me out a little when I see us give the ball to the opposition and then our entire defence holds it shape and we simply clear it when the opponent inevitably gets caught in possession, it just doesn’t seem right and If it wasn’t for the occasional lapse in concentration I’d be truly confused as to whether this was Arsenal or not.

Interesting to see Jenkinson’s stats, I guess it would be due to So’ton not putting as much pressure down their left but shows he’s improving every match and long may it continue.

Jenks had an almighty game today. Dealt with anything Southampton threw at him, was strong in the tackle and always looked to bomb forward.

I like him.

Yeah, I agree with the Swiveller. Jenks looked great today. He was solid in defense and at least moderately clever in attack. I felt very happy for him & for us Gooners during the game.

we had so many direct players. Wenger said before the match that Soton might park it , I think we should apply this tactic against ALL bus packers

Leandro

We need a strategy to deal with teams that park the bus since forever, so I was really excited to see quick first-touch passes with the likes of Podolski, Gibbs and Coq providing options down the sides, specially on the left. I think our directness was definitely responsible for the scoreline and for the lower possession!

Bestie

On the BBC, they said we had 70% possession. Now I know they also had said Sahin was on his way, but it’s interesting to see such a large discrepancy. Unless it was a typo.

Great numbers, as always. Love the Rooney references but bet the 2012/13 number does not stay the same, sadly.

I think Carzola and Podolski could be the combination signings of the season. They just seem on each others wavelength, and they both work so hard for the team.

Great players do not need to cost £30m!

I would absolutely love this stat but he assisted two goals this evening.
Cazorla doesn’t need comparing to Cesc though. he, is not a new cesc or a better Cesc, He is just Santi and there is one of a kind.

Nick
Nick

So Cesc has two assists in six months. Wow! This is the kind of thinking that gives everyone the freedom to trash Chamakh for not scoring even though he is not playing.

What I liked was that neither of Cesc’s assists were gimme Assists, which is what you get when you pass to Messi. That said, I bet Reading or Southhampton could rip Getafe a new one, so I’m not impressed.

Point is: you have to play, and play in a side that suits you. It is not inconceivable that Cazorla is more direct and a better fit for Arsenal than the player Cesc turned out to be.

I think Wenger concluded that Van Persie could only be a success if he was the sole focal point of the attack — we now have a more varied attack.

Gutbukkit Deffrolla
Gutbukkit Deffrolla

I think Wenger concluded that Arsenal could only be a success if we stopped using the sole focal point of attack approach — we now have a more varied attack.

We have tended to be a team that develops a reliance on one player for some years now…. Henry, Rude Van Nistlepursey, even Fabregas to an extent.

I imagine that we may be about to develop a reliance on Cazorla, but I think that it will not become restricting as our former one-man reliances did.

Firstly, I think this is because Cazorla has a wider overall spread of skills than those other players (I am not denigrating their skills in any way). He is a more rounded player than any of them (Again, not a criticism of other players. Strikers, for instance, are supposed to specialise at scoring), and this means our team plays a better brand of rounded football.

Secondly, we have a handful of players that are surely capable of deputising for him. Wilshere and Arteta in particular are able players who can do a job in the same way for us on those occasions that Cazorla is rested. They may not be perfect fits, but either would be able to allow us to play in a similar style as we have been doing so far this season.

I find it extremely refreshing to see that our playmakers (i.e most of our team) have more options when they have the ball now. When we had that Dutch guy our players seemed to feel honour bound to pass to him so that he could score our goals (Same happened with Henry eventually), so they were perhaps subduing their own runs on goal.

I think that Cazorla is good enough a player that if he sees three or four players all moving into dangerous positions he is going to be able to pick the best option more often than not. I think his teammates recognise that and are now making the moves as there is a real chance they may receive the ball, and because they are doing that everybody is getting more options when they have the ball in the final third. In short I believe that the removal of our attacking bottleneck (Rip Van Wankle) and the addition of the multi-talented Cazorla have energised our team.

Off topic… By any chance is there anyone in the detroit/ann arbor michigan area that watches matches? Having trouble finding a good bar that has any fans (that are not pool supporters… Which is getting sad to watch)

Yeah, same here. I just moved to Rochester, MI. Arsenal’s website has listed Hamlin Pub in Rochester Hills as a venue to watch arsenal matches but they open at around 11 am. So never been there but if there is a match after 11 am, I’m definitely planning to go and watch there.

The most eye-popping stat is that Gervinho is almost as efficient as Poldoski in front of the goal. I never could have imagined such a thing.

I was working yesterday so I’ve only just seen the game. It was fantastic watching us play like we used to and really demolish the opposition. For me, Gervinho was a revelation: I loved the confident way that he took his first goal – why can’t he be so clinical more often? And the Poldolski free-kick was pure class. I bet Giroud was really pissed off that he didn’t start – he could have bagged himself a hat-trick.

Again, we defended really well – it’s becoming a bad habit! – except for that bad piece of goalkeeping that led to the Southampton goal. There’s an argument that now that Mannone should start against Monpelier: after all, he’s done nothing wrong so far this season.

Next weekend will be the biggest test of the season: the performance against Man City will really tell us just how good we are.

Lukas Podolski’s pass completion rate hit a baffling 100% against Soton. He has put all of his 31 passes right during the 75 minutes he spent on the pitch as an AML. His passing precision is all the more impressive to me considering his position on the left flank of Arsenal’s attacking lineup. Off course credit must go to the teammates on the receiving end of his passes, mainly Santi, Gerv, Gibbs and the Coq for their good first touch, which allowed for this amazing stat. I wonder why Qq has not made a bigger fuss of it, especially when thinking back to the wild praise young Denilson got for his 100 tally back in those dark days of him roaming our midfield.
