Back to the prem now the internationals are over.
Hopefully all ours come back fit and raring to go against a Stoke side fighting for their survival .
We enter the final stages of the season and usually we kick on and finish well and let's hope we do again starting with a comfortable win against Stoke.

Stoke fans forums are very down and think they are going to get their arsenals kicked.

Christ, that was a dull first half; disjointed, aimless and boring. At one point I started reading the programme. Some sense of urgency in the second half and they finally started passing mainly to players wearing the same shirt. If the penalties were soft then it makes up for the two stonewall ones we were denied at their place. My highlight of the afternoon was brushing shoulders with Alan Davies on the way out.

Playing 2 effective forwards changed things .Last year he found 3 at the back by mistake this year maybe forward running might be just what we need.

The two up front is out of fashion at the moment but I think like potter it could work for us.
Would be great to get back to a forward partnership like the old days.
Th problem is where do you fit our current midfield into a Basic four if you go down the 4-4-2 route.
As it becomes more important that all four cover the defence and attack.
For example where does Ozil fit in.

Couldn't believe it especially when I had him to get a hat trick at 10/1 :x

I think we've found our World Class striker at last.
He's class.
It only took 10years!

Now to sort out the rest of the team.
Wenger out!!

From what I saw yesterday I'd take Jack Butland in the summer.

Now I've read that it sounds a bit sexual!

It looks like people are voting with their feet. The Club must be a little worried.
