re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - FirstRoundPick
Based on the Newcastle game alone, it looks like we've got something going with that front three of Welbeck, Giroud and Alexis with Cazorla in behind and The Ox playing centrally while Rambo is out injured. There is a lot of pace and variety in that attack, and when you throw others into the mix lik...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - FirstRoundPick
Since nobody else will, I figured I would just go ahead and pay tribute to the man who made me an Arsenal fan ... King Henry! I'm sure many of you Gooners from here in the U.S. probably became fans of the club in much the same way as I did by watching this man who just today called it quits on a bri...

We draw Monaco in the Round of 16. If we can somehow get through that tie and then draw the winner of the Basel/Porto pairing, then we'd really be in business. Champions League semifinals here we come!...

[quote]The likelihood is (1/64)x(1/63). [/quote] So, the likelihood of this happening was 0.025% before the start of the draw. Right. You could visibly see Steve Bruce and the Hull players in attendance how thrilled they were to see this happen!...

Haven't read through the most recent posts, but just wanted to add that Debuchy was excellent today in his first game in 3 months! Knowing that we're getting him back now along with Koscielny likely to feature in the next couple of games, then it gives our team a completely different complexion. ...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - FirstRoundPick
It would seem to me that, when fit, the following is Arsenal's first-choice 11. Sadly, I predict we will not see this team play together at any point during this season. What kind of run could this team make if it got a run of games? Szczesny Debuchy-Chambers-Koscielny-Gibbs Arteta-Ramsey Walc...

[quote]Ox is blossoming into a star.[/quote] The Ox has hit an incredible run of form in recent games playing on that right wing. After Alexis Sanchez, I would say he has been consistently our second best player over the last several weeks. He probably hasn't scored as many goals as what his perf...

[quote]This squad is not a top four contender this year.[/quote] If it were any other season, this might be true.

Guess we can't overlook that Arsenal are in the right for 2nd place this year, despite our lackluster start to the season. With Man City continuing to struggle & I predict that Pelligrini won't make it through the season, we could well and truly be in that battle for 2nd place. It is amazing how tha...
