  1. He took at least a couple of corners. And I'm also sure that he took at least one free kick; first half, from the right, and floated a very good ball into the box which they cleared.
  2. Agree with that! (Btw, I was referring to BR, not you, in my comment about the poster).
  3. Nothing against constructive criticism. That always comes with supporting a club. This OP, and this poster, isn't that. It's just endless, repetitive, tedious, negativity, and wallowing in it. That's not support.
  4. If I could give this 100 likes...! Sometimes I despair with some people on here - is there any other manager in the league who'd get this sort of crap going into a game after winning two of the last three league games?
  5. The silly thing is, last time I saw plans, that not having the crossing means that the station ends up the other side of that road from where cars will park to use the station. So, to avoid the risks associated with a railway crossing you create the risks associated with pedestrians crossing a busy road. I don't have stats, but I'd hazard a guess which is more dangerous.
  6. I didn't see the @Davefevs post you've used there Bob, and I'm not sure I really understand it, and certainly not in the context of @ashton_fan comment. I get that we paid more for Kalas, and that his wages are higher. That's why he costs the club more than Webster was costing the club each year. But we sold Webster for £15m more than we paid for him ( including the sell on) Dave says that we were left with £8.6m after we sold Webster and took into account all associated costs, but that £8.6m calculation includes the whole of the Kalas transfer fee. However, the fee then appears again, amortised over the four years of his contract, as part of the ongoing cost of Kalas to the club. Surely that's counting the transfer fee twice? If you amortise the Kalas transfer fee then the surplus at the outset is £15.6m, not £8.6m. And that still leave a healthy surplus even after taking account of Kalas' cost. Have I missed something Dave? If selling Webster and buying Kalas, selling Kelly and buying Dasilva, selling Flint and buying Webster, isn't profitable (which is essentially all Ashton is saying) then what's the rationale behind our 'buy players cheap and sell them for more' model?
  7. Just out of interest, does Eddie anticipate that he'll feature on the Gunners bench in the next few months. Does he anticipate getting any game time? Does he have any specific targets for the remainder of the season in terms of first team minutes or goals? Thanks.
  8. Maybe. Still not sure about Baker though!!
  9. And you reckon Baker could manage that?
  10. And I've been to several away games and spoken to opposing fans after the game who've been very impressed with Diedhiou - including Norwich last season - "best no 9 we've seen here this season".
  11. Did you see the pass that set up Paterson on Saturday? (from Fam, not Baker!)
  12. I said on another thread, if you get the chance watch his pass to the scorer of one of Plymouth's goals at the weekend. Pure class. And a 'box penetration' (or whatever it is he calls them) that LJ couldn't fail to be impressed by.
  13. Sorry if it comes across as negative; not intended, and not how I feel about where we are as a club. Yes, we didn't concede, yes we won against one of those lower teams we've struggled against so often. Yes it was worth the trip just for those three minutes and two goals. It's just that I was surprised how much better Wigan looked than at our place, and I genuinely felt that it was their own doing, not ours, that meant we didn't concede. And you're right about Weimann's pass: even if that had been his only touch it would have been worth waiting for!
