re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - Stewie Griffin
I've sobered up from last night and I'm actually sort of pleased with where we are, minus the defensive depth. We look to have a pretty pacey front line, our biggest issue last year. We point to the big score lines on the road, but that needs context. We chased those games when we get down and e...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - Stewie Griffin
All I need to do is watch our side without Arteta to see how good he is. I'm not as worried about DM as defensive cover. I'm very worried there. Last year, our 4th CB was Sagna, really, who was much better fourth CB than Monreal, IMO. We were also incredibly healthy on our back line last year. ...

[quote]That picture makes me so sad. I hope he scores a million goals for y'all, seriously. Just not against us. [/quote] I've heard this exact sentiment from United fans all over the Internet. Makes me like Welbeck a lot, and hate United a little less. I'm excited about him. We should have ...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - Stewie Griffin
We're now really fast up top, and really slow at the back. When teams are running at us and Per and Flamini/Arteta are two of the three protecting our goal, it's a terrifying prospect. ...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - Stewie Griffin
It's weird. In terms of the quality of player we brought in – Sanchez, Welbeck, Debuchy, Chambers, Ospina – I'm quite happy. But depth at defense is an issue (unless Bellerin is ready, which I'm not sure he is), and our DM quality is lacking. If we are moving to a double pivot of Ramsey and...

From some dude on Twitter: It really beggars belief that Arsenal are going into a season with only 2 established CBs and 2 DCMs both in their 30s. I've been looking for the bottom of my mug all night...still haven't found it yet. God protect Per, Kosc, Chambers, Debuchy, Gibbs, and Monrea...

From Reddit. [quote]*mostly from Rom Absolutely fricking devastated to hear he's going to you lot, he is LOVED by majority of United fans and has the potential to be a fantastic player. One of the biggest criticisms against Danny Welbeck is he doesn’t score enough goals. He’s scored 20 goals in ...

I'd like to see this when Gibbs and Arteta are back: Shez Debuchy-Per-Kosc-Gibbs Ramsey-Arteta Ox-Ozil-Sanchez Welbeck Put Theo on for Ox when healthy. Giroud/Welbeck/Sanchez rotate up top when all healthy. It's not bad, but our depth is nonexistent. Another season of fingers crossed fo...

What happens if Per or Kosc get hurt? What if Arteta sustains a long term injury? Irresponsible, ridiculous. We have no defensive depth. One injury there and we're stretched. Two and we're fricked. I'm pretty pissed TBH. I tried to hold reservations until the end of the day, but of th...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - Stewie Griffin
I'm not worried about attack nearly as much as DM and CB. If Welbeck is in we have loads of attacking options, especially at full health. Three CBs right now, one who doubles as RB cover, and Arteta/Flamini as DM. That's pathetic. ...
