re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - Stewie Griffin
Most I've enjoyed watching a match all season. Ox is blossoming into a star. He deserved that wonderful half volley off the bar. Injuries...bleh. Hope it's not too serious for Sanogo and Arteta. ...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - Stewie Griffin
Ramsey was quoted today as saying he's going to stop pressing so hard for goals. When he's at his best is when he's making tackles all over the field. Last year, he averaged 3.5 tackles per game. This year, 1.8. Literally half the work he was doing a season ago. Hopefully he gets back to that player...

[quote]Ozil might seem lazy[/quote] Anyone who really watches him knows this isn't true. He's very smooth in languid in his movement, but he runs quite a bit and is constantly moving. [quote]This team would be immensely better if we dropped Wilshere and Ramsey for a while, but other than Rosi...

If we're going to buy an Arteta replacement, I'd love Schneiderlin. The more I watch him this year the more I like him. I'm assuming he wouldn't be available until summer. ...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - Stewie Griffin
I mean, yeah, we're not playing 'well' but we're controlling the game, our movement is fluid, etc. We're not in shambles. We just aren't finishing. The fact that Giroud is coming in as our finisher speaks miles to it. His left foot is great, but he's known to be wasteful with chances. Welbeck's ...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - Stewie Griffin
Again, it's a game of tiny margins, and if Wilshere lays the ball off to Alexis or picks a side, we're up 1-0 and in control. It's a shame, but we aren't coming on the right side of those razor thin margins. Hopefully we start figuring it out. Last season, there was a stretch where we ground out...

[quote]tactics weren't the issue in my mind[/quote] The only tactical issue was pushing WAY too much for an equalizer. Per should've never been where he was. Otherwise, we were dominant in terms of tactics. We've played really well against City, Chelsea, and United and have a point to show for...

Lol, very true. Maybe we're a year away. You can see the things that weren't clicking earlier this season clicking now. Interested to see how we fit Ozil back into the mix. ...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - Stewie Griffin
I do take something from the fact that we played really well. The margin between where we want to be and where we are is slim, as slim as Jack laying that ball off to Alexis for a 1-0 lead. Soccer really is unlike any other sport in that those fractional decisions change EVERYTHING. The pieces ar...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - Stewie Griffin
There were lots of times last year that Ramsey's goals covered up average play. I think unfortunately that's the exception and what we are seeing is the norm. Arteta was great. Ox was great. Chambers was very good. Alexis was out of sorts, Wilshere wasteful. That has to be a goal every time. Tha...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - Stewie Griffin
fricking absurd to dominate a match like that and lose. To give up that goal at 1-0 is just a joke. Terrible from Per and Arsene. Until we learn how to put a foot through the ball and take advantage of our early dominance we will be very average. Just sick of this season TBH. ...

Apparently Walcott is out and Welbeck a doubt for tomorrow. Giroud could get a start. ETA: They all trained today (and Alexis, who apparently was some sort of doubt) though before training Wenger definitively said Walcott was out with a tight groin. I just want Welé to score against his old c...
