This season's staring is Chelsea and Manchester United, not Arsenal and Liverpool anymore

Probably would have been missing link in midfield.

One of the truly bad transfer decisions he's made over the last 6 months.......or should i say non-decision

You obviously have an oversupply of Chelsea and Man U strips, good thinking, talk them up!
I'll have one of each thanks based on you intuitive assessment of the season.

Arsenal had just paid 40mil for Ozil, aren’t they similar players? How was another attacking midfielder a priority, who makes way for Cesc ? You can say at the end of the season Ozil is crap Cesc would have been better but Wenger doesn’t have the benefit of hindsight, he has to deal with reality and I reckon many Gunners were creaming when Ozil signed, “nice one Wenger” they would have said.

Wenger was the bloke who made Cesc, gave him a massive pay increase (over and above our wage structure), made him club captain and built his team around him. In return he had to endure constant destabilizing from Spain. In 2011 he went to Spain and missed the last game of the season, refused to train or play for us again.

Cesc left when he was needed most, others followed and it set the club back years, f#ck him. Should we also bend over to re sign Nasri, Clichy, Van Persie?

Both you & Cyril have slagged off Mesut on numerous occasions, overpriced, poor defending blah blah. After watching the West brom defeat you wanna start talking about poor defending from an over priced player... Lamela should be getting slagged more than Ozil, what has he done since his arrival...???

Finally found them scoring boots this morning. Played decent all over the park. Some concern with Szchezny getting yet another red as I feel Ospina is even more of a worry between the sticks..

3 nice finishes from Welbeck this morning mate. Good to have some pace up top again. Lets see how Wenger develops Welbeck!!!! 4 goals in 5 games.

Szchezny had nothing to do all game but when he did he made the wrong decision :oops: Ospina I think looked nervous mate, couple of good saves thou! He aint that tall either..

definately especially leading into the Chelsea game

great to see Welbeck get his first professional hat-trick aswell.

first and third goals were good runs behind the defence complemented by great through balls.

the second was all speed and strength

hopefully he can kick on now and become a consistent scorer for us

ozil seems to have found some form in the last couple of games

Probably not strong enough to play down the middle, which is why the master tactician Wenger decided to play him out wide :wink:

Another disappointing result

Wenger can go on about the amount of possession we had etc, but the reality is drawing at home to Hull isnt good enough.

I sure we'll beat Anderlecht now and then the comment will be about that being "a good win for morale" before we go back to the norm

Rumour that spuds are making a 10mil offer for Podolski, loved his response "Hell will freeze over before that transfer happens"

Our defence is Sh*t, plain and simple. Time to invest in that area or we will see the same thing over and over for the next 10 years again.

Have to play our 3rd choice keeper v Anderlecht this week, so our defence isnt going to improve anytime soon

Also a good example of a player who still believes he has something to offer on the big stage and isn't ready yet to go down a level or two
