Based on this display, its safe to say we are going to be top 4, and win the FA and Europa cups. Up the Arsenal.

Just a short time ago that he played left back as an emergency measure with Tierney and Kola both crocked. I'd say he's number one now.

And it's 3 with a gift from their keeper. :58big-emoticons:

6 minutes added time. Where on earth has that come from? We have games we’re desperate to win, loads of time wasting and get 3 mins.

Time to take timekeeping away from the officials.

In the city v spurs game, when they pulled the game back for the coty pen there had been something like 2.5 mins of play whilst var looked at it, then there were the arguments about the pen, then when the pen was missed we had another var review for a potential trip on sterling. I think someone showed that whole incident took 4.5-5mins and there was only 1-2 mins added on at the end of the half.

Simple, elegant pass from Willock to set that up. Lacazette needed that goal very badly for obvious reasons.

Right foot shot onto his left foot as they’ve just shown. Who cares though. We’ll take it.

Nice of the geordies to roll over and die in the second half. Much needed win.

Let's hope Lacazette rediscover his form after that goal. If Pépé continues to score and assist, it'd be 70m well spent.

That’s a goal and 2 assists for Pépé. If we can get the right players around him he will be a star for us.

Ceballos made a real difference also

Ceballos had his best game since early in the season.

They were poor Kiwi, nevertheless a four goal win is not to be sniffed at. They were sat deep behind the ball and are one of those teams who can make anyone look bad. Once we made the breakthrough the whole game changed.

The mobility of the team in the second half, is what we have missed for too long. Good job!

Arteta “After the break we started saying we had to start closing the gap on the top teams and turn draws into wins. Today was the first opportunity and we’ve done it. All good.

"I'm so pleased for Lacazette [Alexandra Lacazette] – the reaction of the players and staff towards him. He fights hard for everyone. He’s been unlucky. He will gain confidence from this and knows how everyone appreciates him.

"Bukayo Saka is doing really well. He keeps his head down and wants to learn. He's peforming like a senior player.

"Dani Ceballos is a good example. He was injured and when he started to train I didn’t think he was fit enough. He completely changed his behaviour and trained like an animal. I thought he was the best player on the pitch."

Post subject:  Re: Supporters Forum

Didn’t watch but from what I’ve read it seemed clear the tempo and quickness of passing increased drastically in the 2nd half.
Pleased with the win, only our 7th this season. A very welcome confidence boost for many.
Saka is unbelievable, going under the media radar hugely. When you see the media fawn over some of the young English players at Chelsea and spurs and here we have a left winger being forced to take his first steps in senior football at left back and he’s still influencing games and getting goals and assists and certainly hasn’t let anyone down defensively. Let’s see Mason Mount play left back, Hudson-Odoi at right back, Winks at Centre-back. Perhaps the media haven’t quite realised Bukayo Saka is English!
Lots of good performances. Really interesting how Arteta has bought back Xhaka, Mustafi and got them playing well. If he wants rid of both at least he’s putting them properly in the shop window. Torriera has generally been back in his proper position, Guendouzi has dropped down the order. Nketiah welcomes back in from loan and trusted. Özil starting every game, Arteta has made a lot of changes already.

I think with a few more goals and assists and Pépé will start realising his potential, realising that with a bit more confidence he can be one of the main men in the team. He beats men for fun but doesn’t seem to always run at them. He loses the ball a lot but so did Sanchez. We need that wildcard player, and every fan will put up with more turnovers in possession if he is producing goals and assists.

Post subject:  Re: Supporters Forum

One thing today showed was the importance of the second goal. So many games in recent times it’s felt like we have sat on a single goal lead.

All of a sudden the game opens up and you can start to get a better output from the attacking players.

More importantly they were forward... Ceballos was constantly looking to get the ball forward unlike Xhaka who looks more crab like than Wilkins.

Would like to think confidence will pick up a little after this result with key scorers, maybe even release zee handbrake in the next outing.

Think with this current incarnation it’s more the third goal, never feel two is enough with our rabble at the back.

Author:  Bernard [ Sun Feb 16, 2020 8:48 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Supporters Forum

In my view Ceballos was comfortably man of the match. But Saka, Mustafi, Pépé and Xhaka also had fine games. To be fair everyone did quite well in the second half with the possible exception, without wishing to be over harsh, of Nketiah. Even Özil woke up towards the end of the game.

Author:  AmericanGooner [ Sun Feb 16, 2020 9:21 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Supporters Forum

Xhaka is like Gilberto when in his first few years. You couldn't suss out the obvious qualities a minority of people including the manager was talking about. You needed a 'skill decoder' that were in limited supply. Why they were getting picked for the first XI was a head scratcher.

I can't wait till the transfer window players and injured players are ready. When all the players are available we will be a different side. I'm not so sure Tierney will have be a confirmed starter also. Central defense and the middle will be much stronger.

Author:  Gunfire [ Sun Feb 16, 2020 9:34 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Supporters Forum

MOTM for me was Özil. Always looking to make something happen. He carried the ball well and when he did you could see their defence backing off and looking around wondering what he was going to do. A few ropey moments in defence at 2-0 up.

Post subject:  Re: Supporters Forum

Just watched the 20 min highlights package. Good result and will build some momentum hopefully. Upside- some real good forward play in the 2nd half, clean sheet, good clinical goals and team seem united.

Downside- poor half of play, gave up some easy chances across the game, Newcastle surrended so I am not sure how good we are. Hopefully he is keeping Martinelli for Europa league this week. But I would not like to see too many games without him playing.

When you go on a run with a lot of draws a result or two one way or the other can put a completely different spin on things.
Fail to win today and it’s 1 league win in 8, by winnings it’s all about only 1 defeat in 8 and unbeaten in 2020

Found these stats from F365
Arsenal have won more points than Chelsea, Leicester, Manchester United and Wolves since Arteta was appointed, scoring more goals than Tottenham and conceding fewer than all but Liverpool

We must extend Saka's contract as soon as possible. He is a gem. Fearless and effective. No attitude as well. Give him a good enough deal, so his head will not be turned.

Glad to see Ceballos and Pépé putting in a good game yesterday. More, more, more ........... And Özil did well too!

The best is the return to goals for both Aubameyang and Lacazette. More to come?

Clean sheet today, keep it up defence!

Hail Arteta! :22encouragement:

Thinking 'What ifs'. What if we had hired Arteta instead of Emery?

I liked Emery though, but must admit it was too far gone the other way for him to recover and rebuild.

He had a fine second half. Id give him m.o.m. ahead of Ceballos and Saka who were also superb.

I do constantly feel Spurs are such an incredibly lucky team. Yesterday they got a penalty on VAR that will not get given in countless other games this season, had the pen saved but fell perfectly to tuck away the rebound and then benefited from a once in a season kind of mistake to score the undeserved winner in the 94th minute. Ok Son is an excellent player who took the chance very well but so many times I see Spurs not play well but somehow sneak a win, and not in a that’s what great teams do either. So many times already this and last season. I saw someone say ‘are spurs sleepwalking their way to the champions league?’
I hope Leipzig year them apart in the champions league

Post subject:  Re: Supporters Forum

I won't get too carried away with yesterday's win, as welcome as it was. The first half was very average and Newcastle certainly had their moments. Saint-Maximin caused Bellerin all sorts of problems, he seems to have lost some pace.

Second half was obviously much better. I thought Saka was superb and looks so comfortable. Pépé again showed glimpses of why we paid so much money for him and contributed a goal and two assists without even being in top gear I feel. Ceballos was excellent as well.

The Guendouzi omission is interesting, will he see this kick up the backside as motivation to improve or will he sulk and seek pastures new.
