  1. Re: Official Arsenal Thread Or the most controversial.
  2. Re: Official Arsenal Thread Great investment. I can already see the bloke lifting the UCL for us. And a PFA POTY award.
  3. Re: Official Red Devils thread I sympathize with your observation on Xavi and Iniesta' date=' as many would, but I still believe that Messi is just as "close to perfection" as those two are. Their ability to move with the ball is unprecedented, but so is Messi's ability to move [i']without[/i] the ball. His ability to draw out defenders and midfielders and create space without even having the ball is a huge part of Barca's ability to make use of their possession. Xavi and Iniesta are indeed insuperable in their possession play, but Messi converts their contributions into goals.
  4. Re: UEFA Champions League Discussion thread I wouldn't blame them for being conservative. If there's one thing that was particularly unappealing about Ferguson's tactics today, it was the eagerness to defend that he seemed to imbue his side with. I would rather say that Barca's seemingly conservative approach was more of an attempt to draw out the sort of pressure from an irritated United side that could open up space between the United midfield and defense. That gap was successfully created by Messi's ostensibly retrogressive movements, and exploited by some good runs from Villa, Alves, and of course Pedro.
  5. Re: UEFA Champions League Discussion thread What a game from Barca. They should be in a league of their own. Guardiola is truly a genius, but Fergie's gameplan wasn't bad - up until the second half, that is. Messi's simplistic but masterful off-the-ball movement again succeeds in stumping United's defense. Makes you wonder what could possibly work against Messi. There seems to be no one capable of man-marking him, and today showed that a make-shift zonal defense is just no use. Only time can defeat such a spectacular player.
  6. Re: Official Arsenal Thread Wasn't everyone? Nasri and Szczesny were the only two who didn't screw us over. And they still were mediocre.
  7. Re: Official Arsenal Thread Aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh aaaaaaaaaaaaaah ahhhhhhhhhh aaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh arrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhh Leave it to the Gunners to screw everything over.
  8. Re: Official Arsenal Thread Might as well throw in my own two cents, whatever it's worth (about two cents, I believe ). The situation so far with Hazard puts the Belgian in a rather comfortable likelihood of joining. Of course, with Fabregas probably leaving and his inevitable replacement being Nasri, and with Rosicky also on his way out, the door is open even wider for a Hazard-ous move. See what I did there? I still prefer RvP over Chamakh as striker, contrary to Stuart's post; Walcott providing pace and Hazard technique makes a good mix, and no one to me can replace the Dutchman's lethal finishing. Szczesny Sagna --- Mertesacker --- Vermaelen --- Clichy Song---------- ----------Wilshere Nasri Walcott ----------------------------------- Hazard RvP
  9. Re: Official Arsenal Thread http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/blog/2011/mar/15/arsene-wenger-arsenal-captaincy?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+theguardian%2Ffootball%2Frss+%28Football%29 The guys at the Guardian get it right yet again: "Gallas lost the position 14 games into the 2008-09 season, when Fábregas was appointed. Although only 21, the Catalan was clearly the club's outstanding performer. But given that there were already rumours linking him to a return to Barcelona, it was impossible to escape the thought that Wenger had once again given the armband to a player he wanted to flatter into staying. "Like Henry and Gallas, Fábregas has not been an effective captain. Injuries have limited his appearances, and he has sometimes tried to return from them too soon." We don't need a forward, a goalkeeper, a defender, or a midfielder. We need a leader.
  10. Respuesta: Premiership 2010/2011 Disscussion Thanks, Liverpool. United are now leading by just three points and a three-goal difference. Plus, Arsenal have a game in hand!
  11. Respuesta: Official Arsenal Thread Gotta give props to both keepers. Mignolet was outstanding, and Szczesny made a couple of great saves as well.
  12. Respuesta: Official Arsenal Thread The refs can go **** themselves.
