re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - Friend of OBUDan
he scored 7 open play goals last year in serie a. he may come good, and was probably worth the moderate fee they paid, but he's hardly the answer as he's still very much potential. i think we've got a plan, but we need CL qualification assured and a couple of RM/PSG/Monaco dominoes to fall first. if...

hleb was a "proven entity" in this league. there's a difference between situations in guys like fab and sanchez and that of guys like hleb or song. he wasn't merely not as good as they expected or deadweight after an even bigger signing. he has been awful. at the positions we would need a signing...

i would like a taller DM so we can play sanchez at CF. can't really afford to take giroud or sanogo out of the XI and not replace that height. i think it's important to remember Song has been dog shite at DM and CB for Barca the past two years. i think we need to look elsewhere. he should only be ...

no we don't. can't see it happen other than if we're utterly desperate and grasping for straws on 8/31. i liked Song when he was here, but he has digressed the last two years and isn't a good fit for us at DM. if it cost us nothing and we whiffed on our other targets, it wouldn't really bother me...

this 4-3-3 we've been playing doesn't suit ramsey, santi, or giroud and it's been done to forcefrick wilshere into the lineup in a position closer to his optimal spot. i don't like that. it hasn't helped sanchez either as we've had even less numbers in the box. hope arteta isn't out long. flamini ...

i've said it for years now, but arteta has been criminally underrated. he was key to our win saturday with his smart positioning and ability to recycle possession. posted this before and i'll post it again: [link=(http://www.statsbomb.com/2014/01/what-does-a-great-defensive-midfielder-look-like/)]ar...

believe bellerin was brought to turkey. would assume maybe he would be the backup LB and RB this match. manolas should happen soon. we need that to go through. i love gibbo, but we can't rely on him. really wish we'd go after another LB, but that isn't happening this offseason. 2 hamstring iss...

yes. I do! selfishly, I'd point out what that comparing things requires evaluating a lot of fluid parts, of which what I said involved more of and is harder to make an accurate comparison. I think comparing the transfer market dealings one year apart by the same team/person at a similar position has...

we spent the same amount on Sanchez. I'd rather have Sanchez. we're not at city or Chelsea level where we can splash out a huge fee and a huge contract for a redundant player. it's was an impossibly tough decision that likely wasn't going to end well either way. In a perfect, we would have/could ...

last year, we got more points than anyone versus non-top 5 squads (maybe non-top 7), often in situations like this where teams were sitting almost entirely behind the ball. it was by far our best year of grinding out results in the Emirates era. hopefully we can retain that gritty play and add to it...

if gibbo is long-term injured, we'll buy a LB. I hope it'd be a big time purchase like Ricardo Rodriguez. gibbs just can't be relied upon long term and monreal is probably in his last year with us. hopefully it's minor though. definitely need a CB, but very impressed with chambers. he and arteta ...
