Good, far stronger team than a year ago, Cohesion playing well.

Top place beckons. COYR.

Sonic Gunner

Debuchy hasnt been in the squad for two games now and he is always in training.
Something is fishing.
Let’s make top of the league ours from now on.

Cornelius P. Snuffington III

Agreed, certainly seems to me he’s on his way out the door (and I can’t blame him if he wants that, he’s not going to displace Bellerin). But that only makes sense if Wenger has a replacement in mind.

Flirty Sanchez

I like the idea that Debuchy has gone fishing.


I think Sonic Gunner might be the one who’s fishing.


3pts and top of the pile will complete my Xmas.


Time to open the gap on the other teams.Best of luck,gunners.


Hope that we end 2015 on a high note.
Secondly I hope we do well, win the game in the first half and give a chance to The Jeff to impress in the second half.


That Saints line up looks like a pushover COYG! ๐Ÿ˜‰


In my defence the Saints had no players at the time of writing…

chidi mbabie

Here comes the gunners(the Foxes are fleeing) for top spot.


I really want to see the Jeff : ((


Really want to see The Jeff and Awobi in action.


Leicester lose, Chelshit draw (Oscar hahaha)….
First place: It’s up for grabs now!!
Let’s do this!!!


Safe to say that Debuchy is gone?


That predicted downward turn for the foxes?? Coyg!


Let’s not count our chickens! ๐Ÿ™‚


Alright alright


All i want for xmas is a jeff debut ๐Ÿ™‚


Leicester although they lost played their hearts out, I hope we put in a shift today. COYG.


Oh dear how typical – a chance to go top and we are loosing!!!

He's got no hair but we don't care...

Leicester lose, of course that means we don’t win.


Oh my its gonna be one of those games ain’t it!!!!


Looking like a team with injuries.
Let’s watch Arsene sort it at half time COYG!!


How typical us. A chance to go top and play like shit. No energy and it seem nobody wants the ball. This is y noone belive in us and rightly so. Three points against city means nothing if we r going to lose the next match right away. If its means anything, it would be that we r not gd enough to b champ


Good chance for us to show what we are made of with a nice comeback win. Time to step up.


Well that was pants!!! Two goals down!!! Shame our injury list is so bad, can’t see us winning the title unless some reinforcements come in!!! Seems like a waste beating man city to then throw away the chance to go top by loosing to a team that has LOST their last five or so games – yeah right!!!


Guess character didn’t show up.


Boxing Day torture. Yay.


What a bunch of Muppets – three goals down? Is it April fools or is our title push a complete joke?

Heavy infantry

Bottlers.Plain and simple.

We're not the American army...

Title winning sides don’t beat Citteh then get stuffed by worse Saints team in 4 years 5 days later.
We won’t and can’t win the league.


Beetlejuice is on ITV4


You make me laugh Spud ๐Ÿ™‚


The good(?) news is that’s it’s now such an insipid performance you can’t take much from it.

I think we’re just exhausted. At least, it seems that way. Need some decent rotation soon.


Ok so it is our best chance to win the league in years and the team is so keen they get thrashed by relegation threatened Southampton!!!


Only Leicester above us…funny old Prem…


I can’t believe manure are so poor and yet we are only a few points clear of the dross!!!!


Result is bad. Though, all three goals should not hv happened. First- offside in the built up to it. Second- fucking clear foul, a good tactic we could use sometimes though. Third- how on earth is that a corner


Oh how I hate Jon Champion. What’s his f#*king problem with Arsenal anyway? Always takes glee in rubbing it in, always making fun of Wenger (coat, bottle, facial expressions, you name it) and even took a shot at Bould today. Grating git.

Mustrum Ridcully

Hats off to the Saints. They wanted it more and the Gunners did not know how to deal with high pressure pressing of the Centre Backs. OK, two goals were due to referee errors but you cannot fault the Saints for determination. The first goal was superb and the Gunners dropped their heads after that! The temptation now is for Wenger to start the same team again but I think he should need to freshen up and replace Mertersecker with Gabriel. Also, I would keep Giroud on the bench and play Walcott as the lone striker with the Ox and… Read more ยป


Well said. I know no game is easy and all that, but we simply must rotate for the next 2 home games.
