  1. I swear if we let this slip again I'll not be a happy camper!
  2. Simple fact is that we had a two goal lead against bottom of the league who didn't look strong defensively and we did what we always do and chose to sit back on our lead. I honestly don't get how tactically LJ or our staff think that is a good idea when the opposition looked strong going forward and looked scared when attacked? Tactically we played right into their hands once we had that 2-0 lead and it cost us. We needed to keep them on the back foot and take away their confidence, instead we sat back and tried to absorb their attacks which showed a total lack of respect and ultimately gave Barnsley the chances they needed to get back into the game. Semenyo was an awful choice too, offered very little, kept going to wide positions, couldn't hold onto the ball and took away any threat we had going forward meaning Barnsley could focus more on attacking us. I'm not anti Johnson but yesterday he got it all wrong, Barnsley took the game to us and the only reason we got ahead was because of how bad their defending was, then we stopped probing their biggest weakness and allowed them to play to their strengths which is madness when LJ knows Barnsley and their philosophy so he knew exactly what to expect.
  3. There is a lot of discussion about us but the fact is that Luton knew how to make us uncomfortable, they knew their strengths and their weaknesses and they knew ours too. Luton set out to make us uncomfortable and although they had a few hiccups that could have cost them earlier in the game they still made us struggle. For me LJ was tactically beaten today, Luton did their homework and knew exactly how to come at us whereas we looked lost and frustrated. I am still convinced we're leaving that real spark in our attack too, Eliasson helps but we still don't have that player that the opposition fear, Afobe offered a touch of that, none of our current players do.
  4. I'm guessing it doesn't work on Virgin media? Will there be a stream up that someone can link me to?
  5. I suppose it depends on what we signed, if it's a year long loan then I imagine it would come at a cost to cancel it just like when you cancel a full contract.
  6. I honestly want to know what's going on with us and injuries, it cannot be coincidence that we get so many. This is a season changer for us, his wages will undoubtedly be a factor in us not being able to replace him in January as we already have so many players taking a wage whilst injured.
  7. Always said it and I stick by it, Diedhiou is not a solo striker, he's a great striker in a pairing but he just doesn't have the ability to carry a front line by himself. If Diedhiou is going to be played in a front two then he's a great asset but as a solo "complete forward" he's just not good enough. I think most of his criticism comes from fans who don't understand that he was our only choice in a 1 up top system and that's just not his game.
  8. Still an hour and half to go to the deadline, let's see what happens.
  9. Or he's arranged a medical at Leeds for tomorrow and nothing has been leaked on their end.
  10. I would, Weimann is wasted on the right and Reid is not a solo striker, when he did well for us he did it as a part of a two, when he was on his own he was highly ineffective.
  11. Chats to the staff, I'd imagine there is a lot of talk at the Emirates about what's going on with the players, hell the cabbie I spoke to when I was last in London seemed to know more about Arsenal than the pundits in what was going on but as I said it's just what he's told me becasue he knows I'm a City fan. Until it's confirmed where he's going I'm taking everything with a pinch of salt.... more salt if he goes to Leeds
  12. I'm only going on what he knows but I know he does a lot of stuff with PES who are Partnered with Arsenal so he's at the Emirates a lot. Either way I just want to know what's happening now as the only person that seems to know is Eddie himself.
  13. My mates who is an Arsenal season tickrt holdr just tol me Eddie wants the Leeds move, Arsenal would rather he came to us... **** knows what's going on. I just want to know now yes or no.
  14. If that article is correct and there is a 20% sell-on then we'd need to sell him for 10 million Euros just to make 400k euros profit, that sounds very risky business.
  15. Seems like a lot of an 18 year old especially when we need a striker and a defender. He's rated very highly and Henry really talked him up last season but seems weird that we'd be paying a near club record fee for a young lad in a position we actually have quite a lot of depth in. Also, if he's a defensive midfielder surely this would be the end of Korey for us what with his injuries and such a huge fee on a player who plays in his position?
