from the last 2 games?(1) Eduardo is not first team standard. (2) Gilberto should retire(3) We are too reliant on Fabregas, Hleb and RVP. We need some quality signings in January. (4) We need a better goalie. (5) We cannot win away in the North East. What is it about Arsenal and teams up North?

gasman01GET A LIFE, what are you three??I said what pretty much most people think when they arrive at BORO its a freeking dump, i didnt say anything about the passion of the people, but the area is a dump!!!SpanOwl, Wenger is tactically niave, if you dont want to see it for yourself, then bully for you, but many gooners, even during the unbeaten season said the same thing, he has one style of playing, that when he gets right it works brilliantly..However if its not working, hes slow to react and somtimes is too stubourn to change hes tactics, this was perfectly displayed at Boro yesterday, yes they played well and deserved to win, but there was no cohesion in the team whatsoever and that was down to the manager, and the formation he deployed.

faint hearts is the last thing we need in among the great Arsenal supporters. 1 loss and all you feck supporters / fans start showing us your little hearts? you need to know that as a football fan, escpecially an ARSENAL fan, you will ve to stand by the club thru and thru. we have 4 key players out and you cannot see the impact of that. and oh by the way, if we had palyed a big side, i bet we would ve won or atleast drawn. you know teams like pompey, Villa, Boro are the kind which come to Play Arsenal or Liverpool and will give all thier lungs out on that day. They know they will NOT win the league but will do all it takes to beat a BIG side. to such teams, beating Arsenal is as good as winning the league. So 'm not surprised. Almunia is a good goalie. the goals scored against him are the ones ANY good goal keeper would conceed. they are not atleast like the one Jens conceeded in early season. He has done very well so far. Can you compare the goals he has conceeded to those of Cech / Van der Sar? can you also tell which type of goals? plus remember, its only his 1ST season as No1 stopper. so be patient as the guy is showing us what he is made of ('m sure he is not made of soldering wire material). but i do agree we need a top top striker. one who you know will do something when things are tricky.(make no mistake, we are NOT missing Henry here). Ade is not so reliable. RVP to me is reliable but the young man is too soft. prone to injuries. Walcot,.....hmmmmm,....looks for glory too too much. Wenger, please buy someone in January. (but not Andrey Sheva). Look out for someone in Italy maybe. the league there is competitive enough.coming to the loss again on Sunday,it is a wake up call for us as gunners that we do not need to under-rate ANY opponent. it may sound funny but its true. i dont think the players were going to approach say Liverpool or them Mancs the way they did Boro. to some extent, there's always some relactance and thoughts such as: "we will win even if they ve just scored". we are not invincible. i feel its good we lost but still remain top of the league. it gives us a little spark to work harder. imagine if we were 9 points clear. it would be good but the players will be too relaxed and the games would end up being a formality and boring. the current situation gives all of teams chance to work hard,...but it gives us a chance to also prove we are worthy of the top position!!
realgunner you certainly are a realgunner,If only everyone clued up on their team as well as you have. I have no criticism of your post and regard you opinions as worth reading and noting - well done I have been an Arsenal supporter for years and all this kind of talk used to be in pubs and clubs. Now we can air our views and opinions this way and barring the snidey, unhealthy,obnoxious and unwanted comments long may it last and long may you realgunner keep posting.

Dear Mr Lampard - that's an odd comment to make coming from CFC in view of your defeats at the Riverside in recent seasons - it can happen to anyone you know! Thanks for the congrats anyway...
There's something about getting your better players back from injury that has a good deal to do with the performance...try doing some research before your next effort!
Man U without Rooney and Ronaldo were scraping 1-0's at the start of the season, and recently lost to Bolton. We had "5" midfielders out against Wigan. 5!!! We missed Fab, Hleb and Flamini, what more do we need to say? 3 of the leagues best playuers this season - what clubs don't miss the big players???? Add to the mix that we are missing RVP - that's 3 sources of goals. Only Adebayor has EPL experience up front.What i'm saying is, there's no need to panic - why should we??? At almost full strength (minus RVP) we have taken this league apart this season. It will all come together soon, I am confident of that.
I hear all the gunners saying 'the best are on the way back' What are you going to do during the African Nations Cup when the half of the team are going to disappear, I can't help thinking you haven't got the 'strength in depth' for the likes of Man Utd who aren't going to be affected by that cup <Smiley>
1. Eduardo needs more attacking oppertunities he is an excellent finisher and just needs the right tools.2. We needs some good january signings.3. Also a new goalie.4. The top clubs are underestimating all the other clubs this season, Man U and Bolton and us vs. MiddlesBor. we let our guard down and then we are hopeless becuase there isn't enough time to get rythm and back into the game.And Arsenal will win EVERYTHING! Or one thing.

The mistake is to let gilberto and dirra play side by side that was why arsenal was unable to control the ball
