  1. I hope Arsenal fans continue to believe in the team no matter what. I’m glad the “vibes” are coming but we cannot get carried away. I agree that the upcoming match against City at the Etihad will be the beginning of a series of major tests for the team. Consistency is key for success.

  2. be interesting to see where Benny comes down on his place in the squad if Naughton continues to play well after he said Lloris has to earn his place.

    Naughton understood his role and was not caught out of position (unlike Benny), he was a little over zealous on occasion but I put that down to youth and wanting to make his stamp on the game against McClarey who gave Ashley Cole a rugged time at the bridge.

    There’s 5 points difference between us and top spot, thats it. The big difference in the performances against Newcastle, WBA and Reading was finishing chances, thats it. Even yesterday we missed way to many, just think about that for a minute, we scored 3 and it could have been 6.

    For me Dembélé was the engine, he was great, even Dempsey looked sharp.

    Looking forward to Lazio, not sure what squad he will put out, I hope Lloris, Caulker, Falque and Ade get the start.

    1. Naughton was not good against Reading, if Reading had not been so poor, they could have exposed him. But you got away with playing Naughton. Your schedule is pretty easy until Unted at the end of this month. Benny is a very good LB, he will have no problem getting his place back.

      1. What did Naughton do that was not good against Reading? was he beat? He did give away 2 free kicks for being over zealous, but his passing was good, as was his positioning ensuring were were not exposed down that flank.

        We completed 85 % of passes with 57.7 % of the possession. over 90 minutes, Naughton was at 82% and you can see from the heat map he was pivotal in building attacks. How do I know this? well aside form watching the game 3 times now, you can look at he stats using the 442 app.

        I would suggest you download the 442 app on your phone, spend the 2.99 for access to this seasons stats and then look at the game stats, look at the influence map and see the 4 most influential players were in order Naughton, Sandro, Dembélé and Walker.

        Reading looked poor because Spurs made them look poor, Chelsea were lucky to get the win against them and McCleary ran Cole rugged, watch the game again on and see for yourself, or use that app to see.

        Benny is a fan favorite, not a great left back, there is a difference.
