    I suppose the players enjoy it, it being an honour to represent their country and all.

    While I don't agree with long ball merchants tag calling us a jammy team is somewhat accurate. Just ask Liverpool or West Ham fans. I'd love to add City fans to that list :)

    Im not waiting the 2 weeks between games to not see Partey. Get him in the starting line up.

    Another wonderful Henry comp, the way he just lifts the ball over Mills' head like Danny is nothing is perfect...

    Henry, Vieira, Bergkamp, Campbell, Cole, Ljungberg, Reyes...we have been so blessed, wish we could all could back and enjoy these players even more...as great a time as we all had back then, you feel it was taken slightly for granted...

    Hopefully Tierney makes it for the game.

    Stick with the 3 at the back formation as it works, and rather focus on bringing the forwards and midfielders closer together. I like what @Furious posted to this effect recently, keeps spaces tight, and gives us that ability to spring into action at the turnover.

    Something like...


    We can get away with a 2-1 here, as long as we stay ahead.

    I expect us to sit back, draw them on to us and do them on the break.

    It's easier said than done but if we can nullify their attack we'll create good chances on the break.

    I think people are underestimating how woeful City have been defensively this season so far. If we concede no more than one goal I strongly fancy us to pull off the win.

    If Willian start we lose.
    This is a match perfect for Pepe. Pepe vs Mendy is the stuff of dreams.

    If we sit back and they get the first goal we are done. Leeds went at them and created so many chances. If we are brave we could get something here. But Arteta is very cautious manager, specially away from home

    I'm disgusted Arsenal FC are being called long-ball merchants. This is because of David Luiz. Needs to end soon.

    ...this victory must have felt so sweet for Arteta, got the better of Pep when it really mattered.

    City really not look that great this start of season against Leicester and Leeds they looked very poor. But all good change if Aguero started and sterling back play LW hopefully Aguero will be on bench.

    Another 7 days FFS. The more this international break goes on the more pissed off I am they even did it. International friendlies during a pandemic... Stupid ****s.

    Are you sure it’s not Arteta’s direction?
    It would make sense Luiz would take them if Arteta instructed it since he’s our best long range passer at the back.

    Expecting 5 at the back and expecting to get pummelled.

    We need to put it on City like Leeds and Leicester did.

    Literally what happened to Leicester when they beat City 5-2 and Sp**s when they beat United 6-1. If we’re done after conceding one goal, we need a serious mental examination

    Aguero is a game changer. I’m amazed they haven’t signed another striker in the last couple seasons. Just stockpiling attacking mids.

    If Gundogan’s back and fully recovered from Covid he’ll be a big boost too.

    They look very susceptible in turnovers. Critical we use pace in attack. Saka left, Pepe right, Auba through the middle.
