He seems like the quality you'd excpect of a free transfer from the french league to me. Another Wenger masterstroke. The papers are building up Arsenal again I see. Doesn't take much.

I'd like to see how many of those sendings off were near the end of the game, they keep possession very well, teams are usually knackered & as such mistakes / mis-timed tackles / annoyance factors highly. They also have a midfield capable of a decent through ball now & again & professional fouls occur as a result as on Sunday.

I struggle to see the issue when anyone debates Arsenals football - it's never so much the game they play, as opposed to the media fawning that gets people's goat on here.

i prefer bendtner tbh, think he's a good prospect but not really suited to arsenal's style. chamakh doesn't look like a natural athlete to me, every time i've seen him he looks like he's borrowed somebody else's legs. think it will be another example of wenger's unerring ability to spot players who are not quite good enough and pay about 10m for them.

& Bendtner, he's a cock but he's already scored 50 league goals, pretty decent return for a 22 year old.

His 35 year old Danish Princess bird is fit as well... (she's worth 400m the jammy cunt!)

Yup. Plenty tried to sign him the year before for 10m but he just saw out his deal & fucked off to Arsenal.

chamakh dived the other week. anyone who thinks neville g should have been sent off should look at some of the stoke tackles (scissors on nani for example). they persistently fouled the pea as well.

wenger doesn't seem to able to stop his own players being sent off.

dive v birmingham. they would probably have lost. eboue should have been sent off too. should have said wenger can't stop his team committing offences for which they ought to be sent off.

I think sosme people forget the decisions we get, Neville being a prime example on Sunday.
neville should never have been booked in the first place, so therefore it's wrong to say that he should've been sent off

he should probably have got a yellow card. and he did.

Stoke have nothing to feel hard done by over. The referee had an appalling game. The worst kind, in my opinion. Wimpy, cowardly refereeing. Yes, they make mistakes, that's a given, but he just dug a hole for himself and had no conviction in his own judgement and ended up 'evening things out'. He made all his own problems.
He got the first Neville booking wrong. He knows that and that's why he didn't book him the second time, but instead of standing by his decision and, you know, doing his job, he is perfectly willing to make a second mistake just to cover himself......then a third by not booking Delap straight afterwards because the crowd were very loud.....

...at half time I thought 'this guy could now do anything!'. I expected either a stone-wall penalty for us to be turned down, or a nothing penalty to be given to Stoke. It was the former.

Look at the whole game, and he got numerous decisions wrong (starting by not booking Faye early on for a sliding tackle, nowhere near the ball. Standard booking) the majority of which favoured Stoke.

Look at the difference later on in the City game where Clattenberg* makes quick, decisive (and correct) calls and isn't influenced by the crowd or any kind of agenda.










*Best of a bad bunch of refs in this league, IMO. Reputation ruined by that horror show Mersey derby and the whole gambling thing, but he's consistently the best and certainly better than the overrated Howard Webb.
