At the beginning of January I was foolishly optimistic we might sign one/a couple of players, as the holes in the team were so obvious.

It's not going to happen is it


We're fools. We get sucked in every transfer window. It's just so depressing being an Arsenal fan these days....

this is kind of funny:



Wenger on why Mertesacker collects the fines: 'The Germans do well economically and we respect that. They are the only ones that make money in Europe. Thats why weve chosen a German.'

Got round to watching the match today (all the stations showing Belgians roughing up poor little kids, shocking stuff). If we could play like those ten minutes after HT for a full match, like ever, we would be brilliant. Suspect in the first half again - need to sort that out - but did well to respond quickly to going behind. Podolski and Ramsey were particularly influential (maybe the latter has a future at the club after all, if allowed to play in his preferred position) and Giroud is obviously pure sex. Double figures for goals this season and one off double figures for assists, what a brilliant flop he is.

Arsenals next few games are certainly winnable.
I expect them to go on a good run of form now.

Because Arsenal have done such a good job winning their "winnable" games this season.

I wasn't thinking boss, I'm sorry. YOU'RE SHIT AARON MATE. there, better.

As for the easily winnable run of games - Bayern is wedged in between Sunderland and Aston Villa. Juxtaposition.

I don't think it's actually possible to be overtly optimistic about a match this season after Bradford, so I'm avoiding being hopeful for this one. Maybe just as well since Brighton have been the better team so far.

Is there any level Andre Santos is capable of impressing at? That he's being made to look this incompetent by a Championship team doesn't bode well.

Why are pundits obsessed with Arsenal's zonal marking for the goals? No mention of Brighton's inept man-marking for our winner, naturally.

It doesn't matter what system you employ when Santos is in your backline.

What do you Arsenal fans think of Giroud now? He started off very slowly but he seems to be banging them in pretty regularly now and seems to be having a decent season imo.

Giroud is having a decent but unspectacular season.
And without being to harsh his goals have come against some fairly weak opposition,and like most of the Arsenal-crop once up against the so called big boys he does tend to disappear.

But I expect him to end this season with atleast 18 goals.He's easily good enough to get that amount.

Edit:sounds like I'm being abit of a hardliner on this.

I've always liked him, but it's understandable that he would take a while to adjust to the PL, not to mention being in and out of the team at various points this season. His tally for the season is more than respectable for someone in their first season coming from a foreign league (and for all the people calling him the next Chamakh, he's one goal off equalling the total that guy managed in three seasons at the club). As for important goals: his equaliser against West Ham led to us turning around the game along with his assist for Walcott giving us the lead, his goal against Spurs was the hammer blow in that match, he put the Newcastle game to bed when he came on and got the equaliser against Fulham (we would have got three points from a losing position had Arteta converted the penalty). The point about the matches against big teams is a bit skewed as well - he only had half an hour or less against City and Chelsea at the Grove, didn't have a bad game against the latter at Stamford Bridge (despite one poor miss), he changed the game when he came on in the last twenty minutes against the former at the Etihad, and everyone was just miserably poor against United.

His main qualities have arguably been in a supporting capacity though - he genuinely does contribute a lot outside of goals when you watch him for 90 minutes (and has done all season, it should be noted), and the fact that he has nearly as many assists as he has goals shouldn't be sniffed at. He's obviously never going to be in RVP's league but he's got a good attitude and keeps working, which means that the fans like him - the NA-NA-NA NAAAAAAA GIROOOOOOUD song is much better than HE SCORES WHEN HE WANTS, really - and he's getting what he deserves with the goals.

Well if he can pound them in against the weaker teams that would be great.

You can only get 18 points from the other members of the top four. You can get 96 by beating the other rabble.

Too many Giroud fanboys in this thread

We're not going to sign anyone. Unfortunate because the whole squad needs reinforcement (surely Santos's performance yesterday demonstrated to Wenger that he really doesn't have two great players in every position or whatever it was he said). If it was clear from the start of the window then it might be easier to take, but it's seriously annoying when Wenger says earlier in the month that we have money to spend if we need to, only to do a complete 180 three weeks later. If we lose out on CL football due to a lack of investment (quite likely), then he'll regret the indecision shown now.

That's his MO every transfer window. He makes the right noises leading up to it. "Money to spend" "Time to stregthen" then always turns around and says he thinks we have enough quality and players aren't available.

I'd rather he was just honest from the start.
