Re: English Football 2015-16

JD, I'd get your eyes checked if you could ever look at Gabriel and think he could be 19. Dude looks closer to 40 than 19.

I only remember maybe one game where Gabriel didn't look very good and composed in every way. I still don't know how good he is, but he isn't deserving of a bad JD post. Chambers? Sure.

Re: English Football 2015-16

I assume Giroud will get a lot of blame again, but starting to get pretty annoyed how we have to play Santi beside Coquelin to hold his hand every game while Ramsey, one of the best box to box mf in the league is out on the right. I mean, Ozil and Santi literally have to go and collect the ball from him in our own half a lot of the time.

If only Coq possessed 5% of Arteta's technical/passing ability.

On the other hand...Cech.

He's 14 months older than Phil Jones.
5 years older than the God that is Luke Shaw.
1 year younger than the best CB in the league so far Chris Smalling.
6 months younger than Daley Blind.
1 year younger than Darmian.

This isn't McNair or Blackett barely out of the womb and playing in the Prem. This guy should be the real deal. The fact that he isn't now is worrying.

JD, please don't transfer your Evans curse onto Shaw.

pretty much this
chambers needs to be sent out on loan asap, debuchy/monreal 4th/5th choice CBs

you joking right?
coq looks extremely comfortable in possession nowadays and never seems to panic under pressure, also has superb (long-range)passing for a "destroyer" and can even hit those diagonals with his weak foot ffs.
coq = real deal

Re: English Football 2015-16

Also, I don't think anyone mentioned this, but this was one of the most exciting 0-0 matches I can remember seeing.
Both teams had shaky moments, but also a lot of real quality worth watching.

Coquelin was very good in possession last night. Led every player in % of passes completed.

20/22 here, though I guessed at Kimble and Halle so really it was 18.

Sakho arrested again. It's a shame he wasn't threatening to score.

I almost wrote something like "they all look the same to me", but refrained.

Knew you wouldn't disappoint, Hoopie.

That was a tap in from inside the six yard box, I couldn't resist.

Why are Arsenal paying Walcott 150ish a week if he doesn't get in their first 11?
