    Xhaka lunge on Son is reckless and it seem like he totally forgot that he is inside his own penalty box. Emery bench all his no 10 and Arsenal lack creativity until Dani Ceballos came in. Sokratis could have conceded a penalty and 2 x yellow card for that stoppage time drama and push on Harry Kane inside his own penalty box. It is a poor performance afterall and We were lucky to draw.

    Emery tactics against Liverpool certainly raise my eyebrow. Arsenal do not have a good defence and our defence is error prone. Inviting Liverpool come forward to press us by passing and crossing across our penalty box is always dangerous. While i understand that emery hope that by doing so, there will be GAP in between for Pepe/auba to counter Attack/break their offside trap, it is not a surprise that we eventually conceded due to set piece and David Luiz’s error. If we have the good defence (like the old Chelsea under mou, I believe that might work) Despite the loss, there are positive from this match. I am encouraged by Pepe performance in his full debut and I believe he will do well if we are playing a lesser opponent/ when he eventually blend in. Well play by Liverpool. I’m looking forward to the next game against spurs. coyg!!

    We could have score more if not for their keeper. Nonetheless, 3 points in the bag (:

    Some positive news ahead of the burnley match. Ozil and Kolasinac has returned to training. https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/49359867

    Wow! 15 misplaced pass. thanks for highlighting that. 1 thing I noticed from the match last week is.. whenever he got the ball.. he pass/dribble upwards to the opposition goal post instead of doing sideward/backward pass. Maybe that contribute to more misplaced pass compared to others. If auba has scored from that lofted pass from Miki.. I think it will look better for him (miki). All in all.. happy with the win :)

    I get what you mean. I was a big ozil fan. In 2014 (the year arsenal signed Sanchez), I went to emirates stadium. While everyone was buying/printing Alexis on their Arsenal Puma jersey, I printed Ozil on mine. When Ozil was playing not so well back then.. I believed that Giroud was the problem (ie he is not getting into good position/ he is not clinical enough). When Laca joined, I thought Ozil will rack up bucket of assist, contributing to Laca goals. But he is still inconsistent. When Auba Joined, I was also looking forward to Ozil assisting Auba/Laca.. Again.. he is still inconsistent. That's why I am not putting high hope on Ozil anymore even with the addition pepe.. We have given him 6 years to prove himself. I hope he prove me wrong this season. Miki may not be as talented as ozil.. but I find that he seem to have better chemistry with auba. He shows more fighting spirit and is more willing to try. When he lost the ball.. he bother to chase and try to get it back. In fact.. I find him playing quite well vs Newcastle despite missing a golden chance and a few misplace pass.. not sure why people are criticizing him in facebook.

    No doubt Ozil does shows glimpse of quality occasionally but that is like once in a blue moon. It is always like this.. play 1 good match. Then went invisible for 3-4 matches.. then fall ill for another 2-3 weeks. Far too few to justify his wages. He is too soft & not suitable for EPL. We have given him more than sufficient time/game to prove himself. If there is a chance to offload him for a reasonable fee, I would say go ahead and don't look back. I would prefer to stick with Miki/Ceballos for the No10 role for this season.

    I was shocked when I saw the starting line up containing wilock, nelson and chambers but Emery prove me wrong. Crucial 3 points. I would take this 1-0 scoreline even before the match.. On the other hand, I was surprised that the Police and Arsenal FC couldn't do anything much to eliminate the threat from the London gang. Wondering how long will Kolasinac and Ozil will be unavailable for selection if this saga continue to drag.

    Getting nervous over the transfer window too. With that amount of coutinho loan fee, I rather they spend it on defense. Arsenal is the only team that start building a house from the roof (attack) despite knowing their foundation (defense) is weak.

    Bro.. when you sign on the dotted line, the SE would have indicated to you that it is a 6 bid non guaranteed coe. you know the meaning of non-guaranteed coe right? Even if they did not secure the coe for you after 6bids and refund you the deposit, they are not consider unreliable or untrustworthy (unless you top up for guaranteed coe). $91k (for elegance) may not be a promo to you. But it is consider a good price if you compare to others (including myself) who paid almost this price for a standard version just 6month ago - (CAT A COE was $25.9k that time). Having said that, I still believe BM is likely to get you the coe. I am happy with my car up till now and hopefully you will like it too. Don't worry.. Just be patient.

    please also add Mustafi to the release list. Look like the pepe deal is true. Even Sylvinho is commenting on it after our defeat to Lyon. imho, it would be better to spend the 80M to address our defensive issue. Yes. Arsenal lack winger.. but they still could attack reasonably well. It is always the defense that let us down. Nonetheless, this shows that Arsenal is not as stingy as I thought. I m hopeful and optimistic that the defensive signing will be coming soon.

    Thanks for the information on Dani Ceballos. Agree that he seem like a good player and he remind me abit of Santi Cazorla (quickfeet) Yes. I also agree that it is good to buy Saliba now before he is price out of our reach if our scout identify him as a gem.. But loaning him back make the whole situation look bad especially when we are in need of defensive covering and this 27m eat up much of the budget. Hopefully there is still substantial budget for arsenal to conduct decent business to reinforce their defense at least. Arsenal shipped in 50+ goal last season in EPL. I really no eye watch if arsenal start the season with the same defense and especially mustafi again.

    Finally some movements in the transfer market, but I m not getting excited over it yet. Spending 27m on a defender and sending him back on loan is not a good deal to me (esp with the rumored limited transfer kitty) and it does not solve our current defensive problem when the season is starting in a few weeks time. Since that is a done deal, we can only hope that Saliba will develop well and repay us next season. I didn't follow la liga but based on some videos highlight of Dani Ceballos, he seem to be playing higher up, similar to ozil position (correct me if I am wrong). Not sure where Emery is going to play him. Arsenal is definitely still lacking especially in the defensive area. Let's hope they will not stop here.

    I think I read an article somewhere suggesting that he was furious when wenger was asked to leave and he intend to leave with wenger at the end of the 2017/2018 season until he suffered that long term injury during the Europa league semi final vs A. Madrid. https://arseblog.news/2018/09/agent-koscielny-had-wenger-exit-plan/ I agree with you that he has served his best years at the club and should not be place in the same band as fabregas, nasri and v persie. I am seriously worried about how arsenal conduct their transfer business even after wenger has left. Perhaps this show that Wenger was never the problem. We are barely 1 month to the start of the next season and they only signed a brazillian teenager. Our defence is a mess and we got no proper winger except for iwobi who always run like a headless chicken.
