Good example of a player who can't perform for his club so he slags off their rivals to appease the fans
Why don't you change your user name back to Lamela...would be even funnier.

Admittedly you can only play against the opposite eleven. But finally we clicked. Chambers played a great 90 whilst burnleys keeper was monumental. Sanchez living up to the hype is another bonus. Missing key players and still doing the biz. Good to see Podolski come off the pine for a change also.

On to you villa to complete my weekend thanks. :D

Value of having a world class player, looks like a keeper playing out of his skin will keep a clean sheet but then moment of brilliance opens the game up.

32m bargain, probably best player in the league. Yes better than Costa and Aguero IMO.
His workrate is ridiculous, reminds me a lot of Suarez.

The more you see of Sanchez the more it's obvious he would have been a perfect fit for Liverpool in replacing Suarez and I reckon Rodgers was banking on the deal being done what with money being no object. It not happening must have come as a surprise and is a major set back to his plans for this year, hence the panic buy. Still I'm not complaining, Liverpool's loss.....

It's not the agreeing with you that pains me, but I tend to agree with you. :(

Movement's great, quick feet, quick brain and he's stronger than he looks. I can only hope he's injury prone :lol:

I should have added, he reminds me very little of Adebayor :lol:

Alexis has looked so dangerous since Wenger moved him from wide right into the number '10' role. His work rate in insane & to play that role its needed - someone who can create, score & defend, unlike Mesut!

:lol: at you Cyril - should I play your fishing game now..

Happy for you to find them, I will always sing his praise - do you forget he won the WC two months ago, starting every game, playing almost every minute... prior to joining had been the leading assist maker in Europe, let alone what he achieved whilst playing for Madrid.. & the FA Cup last year :wink: Im simply stating that Alexis looks more suited to play the number '10' role in an Arsenal shirt. Mesut can also play in that role but cant defend the way Sanchez does! Im sure Wenger will find Ozil a spot on the wing, for Cazorla or the Ox or Walcott

Still would rather Mesut in my team over any of your 3Point Lane Numpties!

Ohh wait Erikson was suppose to be a better buy :lol:

Little good comparing him with Costa, different players, different roles.

Not sure Sanchez is at the level of Aguero, Suarez, Hazard, Di Maria or even Jovetic on a good day.

Having said that he has made a pretty incredible start to the season & if he were continue the same it would be hard to argue against your opinion.

Why is Flamini allowed to go walkabout all the time. 1-0 up 20 or so minutes to go and he is in the opposition’s penalty box in front of the ball, why? Why isn’t he filling the gaps in front of his defence, especially when the full backs are always so exposed. We charge around like kids trying to get in on goal with no defensive discipline, Steve Bould of all people must know better than this.

and why is it that fans, media etc can all see this yet the manager/players dont?

i just dont get it

our defence is a shambles at the moment. leaking goals from all over.

in the past 4th was viewed as an underachievement - at this stage id take 4th in a second!

Picking up the likes of Hummels wont help us in Jan either. The title is Chelsea's now! It's not a secret that our defence is not up to scratch, even before the season started. Wenger is becoming too stubborn and seems he has to be forced into buying defenders of any quality.

^^^^ always a tough one to choose, because it's so funny when United lose…….

…...but on balance, I'm always a happy bunny when the Goons get beat.

Welbeck was sensational by the way :lol:

Maybe if Wilshere was able to pass the ball to either side of De Gea from 8 yards the result might have been different

or even pass it to Sanchez who wouldve tapped it into an open net

but to hit it straight at him? c'mon!!

typical arsenal display this season though. start well, miss chances, defend badly, lose/draw, repeat.

I see the Manure "fans" have come out of hiding now that Utd are the bestest team in the world again, fantastic. Aren’t Manchester United fans brilliant. If only anyone could just say they supported Utd, Oh wait……

The miss was a shocker but on the plus side thought Wilshere & Chamberlain especially were outstanding. Team is not quite right at the moment but really not too far off being the real thing, if Wenger byes wisely in Jan all will be forgiven

How the hell did we get nothing from that game? De Gea was outstanding. Gotta put your chances away to get points I suppose.
