We have to go back to the double pivot. It's insane to me that we let Flamini have so much responsibility. ...

Ozil is awesome at moving into spaces and helping relieve pressure. Way better than all of our players save Santi, who played like a monster today. I can't count how many times he wriggled out of pressure with a deft little turn, or a quick left-right. He's a magnificent dribbler. ...

Gervinho should have done better than he did, but god damn he missed more gilt-edged chances than Giroud. He had two misses against Man City in a game we should have won that were on a fricking platter. You can't do that and expect not to be benched, especially when Walcott was so god damn productive...

Coquelin and not Jenkinson? Christ Wenger. I guess Jenksinson is really on his way out, which is a shame. He's a more than serviceable RB. We've had way worse players get far more chances than he got. Far far worse. ...

What I mean is we should be doing way better with the players we have. Flamini wasn't always this bad. It was also a massive mistake to let Jenks go on loan. We do need a CM to step up, but it's unlikely we'll get a player of the right caliber in January. ...

I really think the Algeria game shell-shocked Per. That game exposed his lack of pace in a massive way. Flamini looks equally as shell-shocked, but for some unknown reason. He doesn't even cover ground like he once did. Maybe it's age, but he should be relegated to the bench. Arteta is still a good ...

Despite the fact we had massive screwups that caused all three Stoke goals, we should have come away with a point. The first Stoke goal happens when you have three players with so little experience at RB, CB, and GK. Still, Chambers should have cleared it. On the second goal, I have no clue what Fla...
