Take the win. Thought we would f**k it up at half time. We did stay strong and they never looked liked scoring until that 5 min spell after our 2nd.

Just wish we were more ruthless. I personally think it should have been 4 or 5.

Iwobi was terrific today. I honestly would like to see Iwobi play in that no.10 position more as he has more to his game, than Ozil. Main key ingredient is him being able to pick the ball up from deep and start attacks.

Iwobi's future is a 10. He's got nice footwork and ball retention.He's in that iniesta,silva mould.Still young plenty to come.

I dont understand how the bold is even a debated here .If your a midfielder this is mandatory thing. You should'nt even be in midfield if you dont get the ball from deep. All the people complaining about ozil coming deep.Just chat shit.They rather let a two man midfield get overrun just to give ozil a pass.f***ing joke. Most top teams dont play 10 because of that 10's not dropping deep.Just leaves you with 9 men defending if you factor striker uptop.

Yep Iwobi definetly has that iniesta + silva similarity in his game.

But in regards to Ozil i rate him highly but I am so strongly of the opinion that there is some games where we will be just better off without him. For instance the away big games.... When did we last win an away big game?? Man city I think 2-0 and guess what Ozil was not playing. Because that game we had a midfield of Coquelin Cazorla and Ramsey and everytime Ramsey or Cazorla collected the ball they were able to run run and make key passes etc. I hate to say it but when we play Bayern Munich away and Chelsea I really do fear if Ozil plays

Always nice to get one over on Fat Sam, payback for all those negative games we had to watch when he was at Bolton, so hard luck lump it up the pitch and hope Sam

Thats the scaery thing they just might, I hope not, we should take 3 points off this lot BUT Fat Sam knows how to best Wonga. :crybaby:

Allardyce has lost on his last 11 visits to arsenal
He has never won there
He has taken 1 point in over 9 years and that was at home
And the 4 wins he achieved over us with Bolton all came at home in a 20 month spell over 10 years ago
Wish we could play him and his teams every week
Lazy c*** in the media still talk of hoodoo
Don't expect our fans to buy it
Same with pullis great home record v us with Stoke
Never took a point at our place ever
