Thanks Tim for the post! Great to see Cazorla starts to find his form again..


51- Reasons to be happy.


Not Bad, keep it up Arsenal! COYG!

He's a blatant diver, but good at it

350 – Number of “FUCK FUCK FUUUUUUCK”s uttered by the editor of Th* S*n and the Executive Director of Sk* Sp*rts when our goals went in.


Why is any criticism of Ozil blasphemy to some people, we can’t just ignore it can we?


Ignore what? That Özil is playing badly? I don´t think he is playing badly. I think he is a fantastic player. He can, as Wenger said, kill you any time with a pass. Other than that, the way he holds up the ball and creates space and chances to others is world class. And yes, he sometimes gives the ball away. Like every other footballer on the planet.

Criticism of Özil is not a sign of blasphemy for me, but it is a sign of defective football knowledge, or just way too high expectations.


Ilari, Stop making sense! We needed to drop Santi after the Aston Villa game, and now we need to drop Ozil.

He can play better, sure, but I’d rather him on the field than the bench pretty much always.

deluded spuds

ozil doesn’t have to dominate games, or even be at his best to influence games, he’s still capable of making a killer pass no matter what form he’s in…

also lets not forget he’s used to having a winterbreak, and for the first time in his career he hasn’t had the luxury of it.


Ozil’s gonna shoot anytime now.


So zombies are Gooners to.

He's a blatant diver, but good at it

Just shows you how long the Fulham wall took to get back ten metres.


Thats the Santi I remeber from last year.. Massive massive performance today , and in Rosicky’s absence Santi did his
“One-man-pressing”, Awesome. More of that please.

City got away with the help of refrees at etihad..two disallowed goals ,wrong offside decisions ,a dive and we literally commted errors by which they scored….city bithes at emirates you will be rattled…Many say we have difficult games in march ..well i am assured we’ll get past each game step by step..


It looks like the refs have changed their allegiance from the other Manchester club. They,ve had some seriously wrong decisions go their way against Liverpool, Newcastle and Cardiff.

Canadian Gooner

Lets make Ashburton Grove a fortress and let no team escape with any points! COYG

Olatunde Lagos Gooner

If 9 nine clean sheets out of last 14, I’m looking at least another 12 from the next 16. I tell you, that could mean some 40 points from the next possible 48: massive! COYG!


Those who chose to criticise Ozil have obviously not learnt anything from their criticism of Ramsey. As for me, I’ve learnt not to criticise anyone that Arene puts on the team. My words are not so tasty that I want to eat them again anytime soon.


I seem to remember us conceding loads of goals from shots taken outside the box last year. I know your not Martin Tyler, but could we see those 3 goals the opposition have scored from distance this year compared with last years figure?
