I had the Coq as my man of the match.

Santi cazorla all the way for man of the match dancing through the whole Chelsea team and maybe deserved a goal. Him teamed up with sanchez giroud and hopefully bemzema then and only then will I believe that the title is ours

On BT it looked more like both managers turned away from each other, rather it looked more like it was done by Mourinho on purpose.

I meant that knowing Mourinho is an asshole, why was he waiting to shake all the players’ hands? Obviously he knew Wenger want going to shake his hand.

Texas Tanaka

That’s exactly why he did it, he knew the handshake charade would make him look good on tv and that Wenger would have no part of it. It was nothing but attention seeking nonsense, and a pathetic attempt at redemption after having been made to cry by tactical genius Arsène Wenger.

I follow 7amkickoff’s school of thought here that Mourinho deliberately tries to be the centre of attention, be it in victory or, particularly, in defeat. Just like when he went to the away dressing room to congratulate the winning team of Bradford last season in the FA Cup, Mourinho tries to garner applause for his ‘classy’ behaviour on one side, but then runs his mouth off to the press when given the opportunity.

For what reason it is hard to fathom. Maybe it is to take attention away from the performance of his players; maybe he is trying to take the piss in a condescending manner for Arsenal’s victory; maybe it is because he is an egoist. That medal throw to the fans was certainly one for the camera.

Maybe it is all these things.

Not being really serious, but look at his behaviour yesterday and its scary how many boxes he ticks.

Watching this video again Mourinho didn’t look in Arsene’s direction so when was he supposed to have tried to shake his hand add he claimed?

Özil looked brilliant at the beginning but became worse as the game went on. Maybe it was because of fatigue, but a lot of sloppy passes at the end.
His first half performance shows promise though!

Aaron Ramsey was the complete opposite. Looked bad in the beginning but became pretty good later on.

I feel so comfortable when Cech is in goal… and Koscielny in defense… and Coquelin in midfield.
We’re no longer only a great attacking team but also a great defensive team. The start of it was Koscielny and Mertesacker’s fantastic partnership.

Cech deserves 11/10 for punching John Terry on a follow through clearance. I just wish he’d done the same to Ivanovic for his bizarrely unnecessary and cunty obstruction tactic before his lovely free kick save.

Falcao can feck off as well for putting everything he had into elbowing Arteta on the sly. I can’t wait to see Mourinho’s latest vanity project crash and burn. Cunts of a feather flock together.

Fantastic win today, let’s replicate that twice more at least this season.

Santi should get 72/10 for that volleyed pass to Ozil.

Interesting to see Ramsey central with Cazorla wide left, wonder if that was a one game situation with Chelsea’s more physical midfield or the look of things to come this season.

Alarmingly how infrequently Walcott gets on the ball at striker, Giroud touched it more in his first five minutes than Walcott did the entire time he played.

A bit alarming how thin our bench was for this match with just Giroud as an experienced attacking player. I know Sanchez will be back soon, but who knows on Welbeck, Rosicky and even Wilshere with the “training” injury.

I think we more played like 4-4-2 with Ozil and walcott as strikers and Ramsey, Coquelin, Cazorla as midfielders. Even in pre season I thought Ozil was playing higher than previous years. I haven’t really saw him running behind the defense last season and this year I did it many times. Still think Walcott can’t play as a lone striker eventhough Ozil is helping him. He needs somebody with presence beside him.

These are more like the runs he used to make at Wolfsburg. I think it’s great that he’s had his first pre-season with us. Perhaps it’s given time for the training staff to focus on re-discovering this side of his game? Either way, it looks amazing. Hope to see more.

Cazorla was stellar so we have to include him somehow when Ramsey takes his favoured central spot. When Sanchez comes in though, he’ll be an automatic start for the left wing, and by the look of things, Ox will be on the right. Leaves plenty to compete for the remaining slots in midfield. Great problem on hand!

I truly believe when Sanchez returns our best TEAM will be:
Cech/Ospina
Bellerin Mert Koscielny Monreal
Coquelin
Ramsey Cazorla
Ox Sanchez
Giroud

Ozil is great but so far over the 2 seasons he has played Santi has In My Opinion done more in terms of goals, assists, defence, ball retention and overall team play. Mr. Consistent!!

10/10 to him for displaying both these qualities today with his all too familiar cuntishness………

Cech definitely gives the fans confidence as well as the back four I’m sure. Cracking save from the Oscar free kick.

Great game and very promising. Had £5 on the Ox to score first and for us to win 2-0 though, so really wish Cazorla or Gibbs could have tucked away one of their chances. Would’ve got £350…

That felt good, make no mistake – they wanted that.

Chech was so commanding in goal and overall a good performance. Yes they had more of the ball but apart from the Hazard chance they didn’t play through us again, and on clear cut chances should have been 3.

My only negative is that once again, against top quality defences Theo doesn’t quite cut it for me as CF. He gets bullied off the ball far too easily and his movement not quite clever enough but I’m being a little churlish as we won so I won’t go in too much and I’m certainly not saying he was poor today, just not for me in certain games as our lone striker.

And to the car load of Chelsea scum who pulled over to abuse and threaten me and a 60 odd year old as we walked back from Wembley to Alperton I hope the smile on my face and total ‘do I look like I give a shit?’ Body language lasts long in your memory…

In saying that I can look after myself but my companion may not have fancied it so probably best they scummed their way off back to their beaten, scummy homes to think about how they are scum and just lost to the Arsenal!!

Here’s a new concept: How about we give Theo a chance as in a run of games before we start judging him on the hand full he’s played in and ironically done pretty well in? It’s funny, people moan that he’s not good enough and in the same breath admit “he is a more clinical finisher than giroud but”….They both bring different qualities and are both underrated in my eyes…Theo gave the midfield space to play yesterday by forcing chel $ ki to defend deeper and was pretty good contrary to perceptions

What is this horseshit about a run that goes back to 2007? Wenger’s first win against Maureen is not the same. This fucking sentence is pissing me off and making me think the 3-5 win was a mirage after too much Guinness, which technically is still true on all accounts.

At some point, I thought Mourinho would break down. These are the games he lives for. To be fair, I didn’t see Chelsea opportunities as clear cut as Gibbs’ and Cazorla’s.

For a contest reputed to be a glorified friendly, neither team played like it was. Both sides were out for blood, and the better team drew it.

Special note goes to Cech. He did exceptionally well, considering he’s been used to having a bus in front of him.

I have to say Cech was a class act today and not just his performance but his behaviour towards both sets of fans and players. Top bloke who knows how to carry himself well

die hard gooner

Great win but points taken so far
1. Theo gets bullied off the ball against strong opposition playing as a striker. If we can, bringing a striker that could hold the ball up and run behind defences would be great. Welbeck has those ingridients but he isnt clinical enough.
2. Bellerin is awesome and it is gonna take a lot of effort for debuchy to reclaim that spot.
3. Coq is improving his passing while he remains solid. Ideally it would be great if we brought in cover for him.
4. playing the Ox and Sanchez on the wings is the way to go against big teams. They are both a threat going forward but still great defensively.
6. 11 mil for Cech is a bargain.
7. Nourinhovis a cunt.

✘ mourinho is a cunt. I cant even spell that cunt’s name.

Wonder what the excuse is now from the media pundits. I expect they will play up the “its not an important piece of silverware” olde hackneyed line.

So we don’t win ‘trophies’ but we’ve now won the FA cup back to back and a historical most number of wins in that competition.

Purportedly we have not strengthened enough and need goals but we scored more than Chelsea could muster with the addition of the “world class” Falcao or even (cough) Remy.

So no Costa , we did not have Alexis.

Players improve.

3 Seasons ago the one lacking a football brain Theo turned 23yrs and scored a clutch of goals

2 Seasons ago Ramsey started scoring again at 23yrs

Last season Coquelin (Yes you guessed it at 23yrs) came good and we had Bellerin also ahead of the curve.

This season Ox (at 23yrs) is stepping up.

The trouble with most is they can only see what has happened before. They work on yesterdays red herrings.

This is a team prime for improvement considering the number of players at 23/24yrs. Its not always about paying over the odds and that is not an indication of quality (See Spurs, Liverpool). Cech for 11m, now that’s good business.

So another red herring dispelled. We have beaten Moanrinho and his Chelsea.

He may complain they passed the ball around more than us but footy isn’t about pretty passing, its about results.:)

To add to a good haul in the pre-season following back to back FA cups and Charity shields, we are developing a taste for a very good habit indeeed. Bigger scalps to follow.

Mourinho talks total nonsense, we all know that. The handshakes and throwing the medal thing were just to get a little attention when all eyes were on us as winners.

The guy is such a narcissist. If he really has any class he would would of stayed with his team and let us get on with our celebrations.

Anyway fuck him, great performance from us. I sincerely hope we go with ox and alexis out wide for the majority of games… Their pace and directness makes us look so dangerous and gives our midfield passers plenty of options.

Also has to be giroud up top to hold it up and then that pace coming from the flanks I think. Theo can fight it out with the ox for a RW slot.

I think Rambo had a quietly great game, kind of reminiscent of the end of the 2013 season – he wasn’t as aggressive going forward but I’m thinking its because Arsene instructed him to stay back and defend the lines and keep us very compact. Regardless he still did have a few good couple of chances too and troubled the Chelsea defense. Such a quality and versatile player.

A good first half display but a really poor second half one. Let us face it – we only just got away. But to still win against Chelsea takes luck and we had it when Hazard fluffed his chance. We can’t afford such a defensive 2nd half performance against anybody if we are to win the league or higher. We have to come out, keep the ball and play – we are not Chelsea. BTW, Willian was fantastic for Chelsea y’day – ran circles around the MF, esp. Ramsey. And Coq was great for us.

We are a couple of signings away – one in MF to replace Ramsey who is one of the worst MF players and poorest passers ever and one up front to either replace or complement Theo or Giroud – neither have enough quality to play well every single game to win us the league.

Dan Hunter

What drivel are you chatting mate? Ramsey is probably one of our best players and captain in the making. He was a star two seasons ago and it’s time for him to start scoring 15-20 goals a season consistently. He can be better than Lampard.

Gunner_Fan

Ramsey is one of our best players? What a joke.. For one full match, just keep your eyes peeled on him mate – the guy can’t pass under the least pressure, deserts his post regardless of situation to run into opposition box for glory-hunting, has little talent to play in a MF role, lacks basics etc etc..

You can call me a troll but when I called Scz the same as one who lacks basics and that he should not be our first-choice goalie since TWO years ago, ppl. said the same and Blogs (who loves Scz) told me off… Now that he is gone, you know what everyone is saying? “Arsenal have solved one of their longstanding problems”.

When you finally take off your rose-tinted glasses, you will spot a poor player for what he really is be it Ramsey or anyone else.
