Mikel: “If it ain’t fugging broke…”


Agent Trusty I believe in you

Dr. Gooner

What was Wilder thinking? A back 4 with Trusty at LB? Against the best 1 v1 player in the league? Wow. I mean, we didn’t need the help but thanks anyways Chris.


It was brutal.


Looks like a bench!
Goals & points please

Bleeding gums murphy

Imagine timber Zinchenco and tomy fit as well. Remove nketia nelson and viera and you have the strongest bench in the league

Bleeding gums murphy

Oh yeah, sorry nketia nelson and Cedric


And then we’ll add Zinks and JT…

Like White and Rice

And Tomi!


And Tomi! Let’s fuggen do things!


That bench could challenge for European places


Party 🎉 on the bench


Are we down to only 2 injuries now?

12, 18


3 forgot Ziny

Left Testicle

Diaby is close!



Nainsley Aitland Miles

Ozil should be back in a fortnite.


I was going to analyse your motivation for saying that, but it would just be CoD psychology.

Wilshere’s Middle Finger

When’s Vermaelen back


What about Eboue?


Looking at that bench – when Tomi, Zinchenko and maybe even Timber comes back…. who gets dropped (besides Cedric)

Thierry Bergkamp (non negotiable)


Nainsley Aitland Miles

Cedric, Vieira, and Nelson, but it’s irrelevant because when Zinchenko and Tomiyasu are back, another one or two players will be out injured or with a knock.

Man Manny

The bench is filling up nicely and quietly.
Any win would do tonight. I am not in the we-will-obliterate-Sheffield-United camp. Stranger things have happened. 0 – 4 is cool.
Then, beat Brentford on Saturday and sit atop the pile waiting for the outcome of Anfield.


Love it! Strong bench. This has to be 3 points guaranteed with all due respect to SU! TP in for Jorginho for the last 25 minutes. Another indication of Arteta’s vision of Declan’s long term role in our midfield. He wants him further up the pitch not as a holder. He hinted a “powerful midfield” in his last presser. Also Rice has been talking up assists and goals in his game recently. I suspect we will see some consistency on this against brentford, Porto and citeh. However I do wonder whether if there’s an opportunity cost in terms of a… Read more »

Thierry Ennui

Watch out for the last Arblaster on the Sheffield bench. He’s a bit good at the ol’ kung-fu fu

timothy wachira

Strong 💪

Man Manny

Sa-mena mena eh eh
Waka waka eh eh eh
£65m down the drain
Kai Havertz scores again.
This song will be sung at Bramall Lane tonight.


Jesus is risen!


Anyone put a bet on for 0-8 ?
Or is this Nightmare on Banana Skin Street ?
Have to say, bit surprised Rams ain’t playing.

Nainsley Aitland Miles

And just to add to the pre-game cockiness, you’d have to say that all of our nine substitutes would walk into Sheffield United’s first 11.

Thierry Bergkamp (non negotiable)

That 8 is looking like a good bet now


Look at those faithless downvotes


Our bench is slowly getting stronger

Thierry Bergkamp (non negotiable)

Bespoke bench, finest materials

Nainsley Aitland Miles

No room on the bench for Elneny.

Teryima Adi



I smell a declan rice screamer this evening COYG


Well it was a pretty decent goal right?

Master Floda

I always had a bit of a soft spot for Sheffield United, but Chris Wilder, the Aldi Allardyce, makes hope we really put them to the sword tonight.

Nainsley Aitland Miles

This fixture is the derby of the two best football films ever made.

When Saturday Comes v Fever Pitch.

Thierry Bergkamp (non negotiable)

I”m thinking that Mikel intentionally kept Jorginho fresh for the run in, after last seasons collapse. Time will tell, now that Partey is available

Billy bob

Should be 3 goals up 😉 but one goal inside five minutes ain’t bad


Just out of interest, has any team ever had all ten outfield players score in a game?

Dr. Gooner

I’m not sure I’ve ever watched football demolition like that. I’m quite sure I’ve never seen ARSENAL display football demolition like that in my 20 years of watching this team. I’ve seen us run up the score on teams but not with this level of control. It’s not just that we’re scoring a hatfuls, it’s that we’re doing it without the other team ever getting into our half, let alone have a shot, let alone score a goal. We are not just more technical, we are also more physical, better coached, AND more committed. It’s annhilation on every level and… Read more »


Please what happened to Saka? Didn’t come on in the 2nd half


He’ll be ok


I suspect that Sheffield may have had better second half home attendance during Covid.
