I was reluctantly in favor of Fellaini (not my first choice by far, but....). Talked into it by so many here I guess. I'm weak :redface: ;)

Fellaini is still a very good player. He's shown that at Everton and for Belgium. Not his fault he's playing in a team that's struggling to find their identity.

Felliani is 4 years younger and adds FAR more going forward.

Maybe not worth £25m when you can get Flamini on a free... but he's still the better of the two overall.
This space used to be more fun...

Fellaini definitely better but wouldn't have added as much as people were harping on about. Arteta/Ramsey better partnership than Fellaini/Ramsey imo

This. People seem to want him to be playing like some sort of all action AM in their system, but tbf, they still need to get used to what moyes is attempting to do there.

It was really strange, they seemed to look like strangers today. Hopefully, this affects them well beyond the 3 points and pride lost today.

Fellaini just wasn't good enough defending. Like I said when we were rumored with him, he lacks discipline and isn't good enough in attacking midfield - an area in which he likes to drift into.

Fellani is probably one of the most overrated players ever to play in the premier league.

anyway.

Bendtner was on the bench today, :lol: he got the most awkward reaction I've ever hear, we didn't know whether to boo or chear, it was just kinda like, LOL we still have Bendtner. Its not the best thing to boo him since he'll just not bother, but we can't just fall in love with a guy who has done next to nothing the past year or so.

I have a feeling he'll come good.

its just caught up with him.

jacks still better than rambo. Cant fault rambos form, but jack still is a classier player


Agreed. He was fantastic last season until he got injured again.

We can play Flamini, Arteta and Ramsey if we need to lock the midfiled.

Don't think Wenger will ever get that defensive, unless it's Madrid or Barca.

Yeah, not exactly his philosophy. But I think the man is changing a little bit. We have seen him playing Monreal as a sub to play alongside Gibbs on the left. We have seen him playing 3 CBs together as well. I just think the trio of Flamini, Arteta and Ramsey will be a real nuissance to most opposition. These guys are tireless.

Pot, kettle and black!

I can't believe they're deluded enough to really believe what they're saying there.
