  1. Arteta, Sanogo, Gibbs not good enuff for Arsenal imo… Sanogo and Arteta especially should be no where near the starting line up. Wenger still needs a top Def Mid and out and out Striker and probably another quality defender. Id be surprised if he doesnt try to get at least the def mid and striker before the transfer window closes

  2. Arlo and Dixon are unbearable. Yammering on and on about random things whilst not announcing the actual matchplay.


  3. Watch Yaya Sanogo bump Hangeland back, to create space for Koscielny to come in for the header. Smart move by Sanogo.

  4. As for Alexis, seemed to me he was pushed off the ball alot in this match. He’s going to have to adjust to English squads physicality pretty quick if he doesn’t want to be a bust.
