Been out to watch the fireworks, came back to watch recording not knowing results and impressed. Very good game, i know we were at home and we should be the aggressors but i thought the defence was pretty sound in the main. We deserved the draw at least, a massive shout out to torreira, what a footballer, great ability, carries the ball quickly and can tackle. A big shout to kolasinac, considering he is just coming off an injury. At times we looked very good, especially when we moved the ball quickly through torreira. Great goal from lacca he worked very hard all game.

Agree0 Disagree0

And Xhaka too mate, the tackle on Salah was inch perfect and the ground he made up was a lot for any player but for Xhaka it signified a total transformation in playing style from anything I've seen from him before.
I've given him lots of stick in the past but he really impressed me yesterday.

{Ed025's Note - fair play to xhaka he had a stormer today G62, now he has to keep that up on a more consistent basis mate..

I think we all kind of feared this game and with good cause. The players and manager have been slowly raising the bar and that was an impressive performance for the whole game and we could have won it.

How many times in big games have we been able to say “we could have won it”.

Torriera, Holding, Lacazette and Xhaka were the standouts and I never thought I’d say that about Xhaka. In reality they were all good and even Iwobi made a difference.

I just really enjoyed the game and what a massive difference in the crowd they were immense.

I’m definitely starting to like Emery and let’s hope we continue to progress the way we are too.

I don't think anyone had a bad game, for me the stand outs were, toreira by an absolute mile, lacca, holding and kolasinac, it was xhaka best ever game for us in 2 and a half years but i have to agree with skys rating for him, 6 out of 10. Torreira turned over the ball 10 times in the game and that was key to this peformance, we need a similar player next to him to take us forward. The defence was better but like milners goal, the goal that should have stood and the two that hit the post, big holes in midfield and ball watching in defence. Like i said, it was a bonus game for us and the secret is improving again, so we beat utd and toots in the next few weeks (our real direct rivals) but Bournemouth won't be easy. The main thing is we are playing big boy football again but the next two big boy teams that we play need a slapping down from us. I have to say though, with what i have seen, Dick (who is a massive breath of air) and mislintat are dragging us back after the wenger dross of the last few years. Early days but looking good.

Dick is disappointed with the last 2 results as he sees them as 4 points dropped rather than 2 gained, yup a breathe of fresh air indeed and with that mentality I doubt he will be planing of an open top bus parade if we finish 4th or calling it a trophy either, I get the impression Dick would see 4th as failure rather than mission accomplished and I'm sure he would tell the players they need to do better next season.

Gunner, he must see where it is still weak but unlike before, i trust him and mislintat to sort that. For the time being we are stuck with what we have but i have to say, holding and kolasinac yesterday were promising. I think with work and perseverance we can improve at stopping goals but i think it will be a while before we can say we are pretty watertight again. But slowly we are hauling ourselves into that 4th place and competativeness.

Absolutely Steve mate, I've got my sights set on a year 3 title challenge that sees us in the thick of it in the merry month of May, obviously I won't be complaining if happens next season ahead of schedule but I'm equally trying to keep my feet on the ground and just enjoy this new exciting ride.

04 Nov 2018 16:35:44
Yes Steve, somehow I forgot Kolasinac, he was great and should have been in with Lacazette, Holding and Torriera. 😁.

Stoner, we have had a false dawn with kol before but i think Dick will help him more than before. There is a good player in there from his bundesleague days. He has the tools, he is just a bit rash.

Totally agree Ed025 mate this has to be a new standard for Xhaka not an all time high but 100% credit to him because no one has given him more stick than me but I'm actually looking forward to seeing him in the team to play Wolves, wow that's new :-)
Agree Stoner mate all played their part but those were the stand outs, it's incredibly to think how far Xhaka and Iwobi have come under Dick in such a short space of time, last summer few would have shed any tears if they'd left but now we are all ( well nearly all :-) singing their praises, a huge well done to Xhaka Iwobi and Emery, I'm impressed by all 3.
