LAUREN's Arsenal Thread 2011/2012 - 125 Years of Greatness *sponsored by being BRILLIANT*

Recommended Posts

3 assists for Theo today. Nice assist from Coq there.

The whole team has been immense today, if I was nitpicking, Woj has been dodgy a few times.

Blackburns defending has been really embarassing.

Also the one game I don't go to and we are handing out a thrashing.. maybe I'm a bad luck charm

I do like the Ox, I await the crushing pressure of expectation to ruin him but it's nice to see a winger that has a trick when going past a man, not only pace. I only just realised when the commentator mentioned his father is ex-England international Mark Chamberlain, did not know that. Also apparently youngest scorer for Arsenal, taking over from Fabregas

I think from 1-1 down to 3-1 quickly mentally they had opted out after that

This is the same scoreline Man Utd got pumped by Man City by, isn't it?

Edit: Don,t know why I posted that - is it relevant at all?!

Nope. The Ox is 18 Fabregas was only just 17 when he first scored in the prem.

Why is Per Mert so often leading our line. It's hilarious seeing the team expect a Bergkamp moment from him all the time.

Really, sure the commentator said that. Maybe they said youngest since Fabregas which would not remotely interesting or a stat

So van Persie who needs a rest will now play all 90, could have played Park or even tried Theo up top.

Away from the substitutions issue once again, we need to go out and capitalise on this Blackburn team. Another goal or two may well be vital considering that this race for fourth will inevitably come down to goal difference. We can't step off the pedal, so to speak.

Didn't even know this was being played now, happily **** myself when I turned Soccer Saturday on and heard the score :D But not being shown on tele? :thdn:

I think Arsenal have stopped trying to score. They want a lot of points, so they can get into the Champions League, but dont want their goal difference to be too good, because if they miss the Champions league they dont want to end up in the Europa League

Rosicky had a pretty rubbish 2nd half tbh.

Shame he reverted back to his usual self. He was so much better in 1st half. Should still keep his place against Sunderland tho.

Where are Sy and djvandyke?

Delighted with the result but it’s hardly the time for crowing. The occasional sensational performance makes our situation even more infuriating.

With even half competent management we would still be in the title race. Instead we face an uphill battle for European football.

I'm right here thanks.

So we won 7-1 against the 10 men of an awful Blackburn side. What exactly is your point? Are we guaranteed 4th? Did we win the Champions League? Do we suddenly have an acceptable squad to challenge for the title? Are Park, Diaby, Chamakh etc now good enough to challenge others like Arteta and Vermaelen for starting places?

The fact is even if we won 35-1 it wouldn't change anything apart from goal difference. It's the 4th Feb and that's the first 3 points we've taken against Fulham, Swansea, United and now Blackburn. Still nowhere near good enough.

Would you agree that between the end of the last match and this point in time right now, Arsenal have performed as well as they possibly could? If you do, then I can't see what you could possibly have to still complain about since the last round of ranting.

Would you agree that the win and the scoreline today will provide a vital boost to improving on that bad form? Would you agree that the result and performance today will quite dramatically improve the atmosphere inside the stadium and more importantly inside the dressing room?

Did you enjoy the game today? Or are you hoping for the string of draws and defeats to continue until Wenger leaves?

Would genuinely like to see djvandyke and sy13 posting in an Arsenal thread from 2004. My guesses are that they would STILL be moaning, some people are just born to moan!

When AW and the board start making positive and sweeping changes for the better then I will stop moaning.

Today we got a good result but Blackburn were utterly dire. I really think Newcastle or Sunderland would have put at least 5 past them. Yes it will give the players a lift but the issue is we don't have the right players at the club anyway. I'm treading old ground and I'm not going into it again now but don't be so blinkered thinking we've turned a corner. We simply won a home game. Sobering isn't it?

What happen to the fans protest today against Wenger? Did it happen today? Or did they eat humble pie instead?

This is what I've been saying all along - there's no balance. I don't mind complaints or criticisms, but when someone can't find anything positive to say even about a good win, you know their opinion is tainted and not worth bothering with (not that anyone does but you know what I mean).

Just want to compliment Arteta and Coquelin for their performances today. They won't get the same headlines as RvP, AOC or TW14, but both did their jobs well and have a level of consistency we could do with across the squad. Coquelin in particular certainly seems to be showing serious potential as a very important player in the future considering how well he's done so far while being played out of position; he has the tactical and positional awareness to maintain a high standard in an unfamiliar role and has generally been very good when actually played in midfield too. :thup:

Coquelin has impressed me HUGELY with his performances this season, a lot of players haven't earned new contracts this season (Theo could be used as an example) but Coq for one certainly has.

I felt relieved to see an Arsenal game where I knew at half time we would score more and win it and I haven't felt that way for a while. The Ox and Coq were great yet again and it was just such a nice feeling to see a dominant and efficient display. However, it was one game and just 3 more points. We are still in the same position if Chelsea win and I still don't think we have anything near a strong enough squad to be successful * but I will gladly take a 7-1 thumping today.

* successful = actually winning something, not finishing 4th with a crap squad.

Frimpong seems to have picked up some serious injury today :(

EDIT: And Vela scored against Barcelona :)

Maybe it's my mind playing tricks on me, but I swear Henry & RVP refer to each other as baby & dada :D Watch closely after Thierry's goal...
