    :lol: Every knows you could have played that match twenty times and City would have won 19 of them.

    There's a huge amount of luck in football, that's been written about over and over . . . refs making mistakes, injuries to key players, rebounds flying wide, and most of all because it's a very low scoring sport.

    The only people who never acknowledge this, are frustrated Wenger critics because they are desperate to make sure Arsenal never have any excuses for their narrative. :lol:

    Is he not part of our defence? Tired of people arguing about De Gea like he's some separate entity. He's as much part of our defence as Smalling or whoever is playing to stop the opposition from scoring. I agree though we could do with improvements. Thankfully Bailly has returned.

    Besides, I wasn't arguing about who is worse, I did say you're bad defensively "also." My point is about how your loss isn't counted as some freak incident because you've shown defensive frailties in the past.

    You keep going with this passive aggressive stuff.:lol:

    If you've got something to say, have the courage to say it man.

    Now now JMB - we can't be having your players doing their job properly mate ;)

    That said, De Gea has been incredible on plenty of occasions for you when most of the rest of the team haven't been performing particularly well. I wish he'd just sign for Real Madrid. Poxy fax machine!

    If I'm not mistaken, wasn't that a record number of goal attempts United had ever faced in a Premier League match? So regardless of defensive mistakes on Arsenal's part in that game, you make a good point in fairness.

    While I didn't see the game, by all accounts Arsenal bombarded United's goal after they went 2 up early on and on another day it could easily have been a different outcome. However, the narrative in certain sections of the media was that it was an end-to-end game but the stats don't quite back that up!

    The game was a rout bro, from start to finish. xG 4.56! 33 shots at goal. Our season average is 16 . . so that's more than double. De Gea pulled off a WC double save at one point.

    Mustafi and Kos made two horrendous unforced errors that produced a score line that is beyond belief.

    And that's the first time they've ever done that right? Freak accident surely.

    The freak accident isn't that mistakes were made in the game, the freak accident was not only the timing (i.e. back to back errors in a matter of minutes) but the manner in which our response yielded no outcome.

    The freak accident is that your gameplan was not dependant on scoring two goals early and getting bombarded throughout the game. It's freaky because those things came out of absolutely nowhere.

    Similar to Cechs case. It was a freak accident given how unforced things were leading to it.

    Just tired of your squad cost agenda sneaking into every thread. I don't understand why you are so insecure of your theory that you have to keep repeating it.

    :lol: The post you were mocking had nothing to do with squad cost.

    I just fail to see how anyone could rate Pep as some contributor to football.

    Or anything remotely suggesting Wenger might not be as bad as social media is making out ;)

  16. I love this :D

    Anyways, onwards and upwards, 5 more wins and the title is ours. I'd still doubt us doing it if we were 4 points ahead with one to play!

    Great first half tonight, capitalised on your hangover from the final, then relaxed a bit second half, almost.

    Chelsea home on Sunday, should be a good game, they will be right up for it, wouldn't surprise me if we dropped points. Fingers crossed for a performance like we put in at Stamford Bridge.
