Im not sure those stats in isolation show that much tbh.
I think our players are just instructed to take a much more 'shoot on sight' approach, whereas Liverpool and City in particular, almost try to walk it in.
It's just a different tactical approach.
I just think we're not clinical enough.

I know we’re all terrified of change but if they don’t get top 4 this year
Can we laugh at them.
Or we waiting until we’re above them in trophies?
Or is them 3 blokes with mind the gap on their t shirts ruined it for ever?

Fair enough, but those stats you posted dont really back that up.
If we'd created the same number of attempts then u would be correct to deduce that, but we're creating a lot more chances, backing up what I said about it being a tactical approach.

Ozil has got a 24 hour security dog patrol at his house now. Got to feel sorry for them both really on a human level. Hopefully as soon as this dies down, and they lower their security level, the gangster ****s don't then try to target them

I read that Ozil's wife has gone back to Germany...I don't see him sticking around for long personally.

Exactly. Take rivalry out of the situation. This is a disgusting and embarrassing state of affairs. This could quite as easy have been one of our players or any other player in the PL.

Let's hope the powers that be can bring this to a satisfactory conclusion to the innocent parties involved.

It clearly wasn't a random attack. These people most likely have a religious or political agenda.
I think his continual endorsing of Erdogan this summer has upset the Kurds in particular. I can imagine they would see protesting at his home perfectly legitimate.
But I've not read that this is the problem, and don't understand why this would be covered up.

Mate look at the thread title, we are not even allowed to change it to 'Lets all laugh at arsenal' in case of upsetting some of our fans on this site.

Watching the Arsenal game...before it started I thought that on paper their defence looks dodgy to say the least.
Maitland Niles not a full back Sokratis carthorse or donkey take your pick. Montreal 33 now on the way down. Luiz the saviour as the press would have us believe. Problem with him is that he was playing with good defenders..Azpilicueta and Rudiger with Kante in front. Now he is the main man. I was convinced Burnley would get at least a draw today. Although Arse started well, it’s 1-1 Burnley have every chance.

I think Sokratis is actually pretty good. He's on the slow side but was made to look much worse by having to play alongside Mustafi for a season.
