Giroud closing down? work rate? he does it like twice a game then stands around for the rest while Rosicky legs it past him to close down the keeper.

Listen no player was worse than any other (sort of) so no point bickering, they were all pretty wank.

My main issue was with leaving our best attackers on the bench and our tactics playing Giroudball, I don't like it and there is hardly any goals in it.

Wenger needs to start Sanogo, we've not had one bad game whenever he and Ox have started.

Elite teams? Like we won 2-0 against them... Oh wait!

Thanks for wasting our season with this BS.

Felled by the mighty Stoke.


But we beat Bayern?



The Mourinho press conference should be starting soon, you better switch over.


Sorry? I actually support Arsenal FC and not Wenger FC. It's alright dude.



Just noticed you seem to worship Mourinho a lot, its cool bud. You can be like Billie and support both teams if you want.


Yeah? Chelsea are 4 points ahead of us. And we've near about lost the League... Worry about that.

Nobody needs to worship Mou (I hate him but I know how you are, so it's not surprising)... His records speaks for itself. It's too sad that Wenger fanatics like you can't digest it.


Bro, you've practically got a hard on for him every time someone mentions him, its cool, dont need to be shy about it, own it. Im not really a Wenger fanatic, im just not the guy to shit the bed every time we drop points.

Ultimately, your utopia would be for the club to be free spending like the oil clubs, i get that. The only problem is, £125m - £200m whatever it is will never even match the money these teams have. Mourinho's record was purchased. You think he would have the same record if he had stayed at Porto? lol

Coincidentally, Might Mou also lost here.

Who clears the ball in that position with their arms to the side? What human could do this?

Podolski, Giroud and Sanogo clearly not good enough to be starters for a club like Arsenal. I hope there is unanimity on this topic after watching all three of them in action today. We need much better Strikers if we are to stay in title hunt next year as this year's title is lost already.

Have you lost your mind, or are you practically accepting that we're nothing more than a 4th placed club?

I despise Mou so much that I supported f'kin Barca in their League campaign when he was at Madrid. Shows how delusional and narrow minded you are. Mou has a better track record than Wenger. That cannot be denied. Just because it's your father (an example because you're prone to misunderstanding; that doesn't mean he's the best or even good at everything). What's there to see is what they accomplish.

And you're not going to shit in bed because what have you seen pre-Wenger? You talk like 4th is overachieving at Arsenal. HA! We haven't won SHIT for 8 seasons and you're not going to shit your bed because we drop pints. Oh my, what a gangsta!

And blah blah about the last BS para. Just assuming shit. Like we're some no good Club instead of being the 2nd most successful Club of the PL era. Wow, kudos mate to how you're embraced mediocrity.

Podolski was even worse.


really wasn't


At least Giroud actually ran about. All Pod did was be his usual shite self but this time with f**k all effort.


You know Giroud is the one with 12 on his back right? The guy who spent half the game on the ground yelping about phantom injuries?

I think the last 2 have always been unanimous, i think whats always been debated is whether or not they are completely useless. If you base it on todays game yes, if you base it on the season no, but thats just my opinion.

I think Podolski being complete wank as a unified thought might only come up now.

Yeah, funnily enough I didn't see the number 9 at all apart from the shot he blasted high and wide.

Agreed, unfortunately.

I like all three of them but the first two especially were just awful today. Giroud was really shit but I at least knew he was playing - I have never seen a player as anonymous as Podolski was today. Sanogo is raw and shouldn't really be playing for us at the moment.

Exactly. Getting pretty tired of people lying about Giroud's work rate. He's incredibly lazy.
