7 minutes to go to get one goal to equalise. So you sub your solid right back and put in a midfielder there, then send your solid Centre Back to the Centre Forward position and slot Arteta into his space, leaving only Ramsey in the centre mid position leaving Gnabry on the ball without any options ahead of him so he loses it, 7 minutes is a long time still. I think when you read that you should laugh at how many mistakes that is.

Haha, hope it's just knee-jerk not your actual opinion.

Maybe it is knee jerk, but I agree with Jenks.

I would even say that we are on par with Newcastle and Everton.
In terms of squad quality, Spurs are ahead of us.
Everton and Newcastle are playing much better than us as teams, they have quality in their squads - Krul, Ba, B.Arfa, Cabaye, Tiote.
They have come up and we have gone down.
Whether they will be able to maintain their form over the season or fall off, we shall see.
Spurs have a bunch of very talented veterans and their potential is very high.
We have sold off a lot of our talent and replaced it with over rated players -looking at you Vermaelan- or "Not Ready Yet's"- Ramsey.
Or Giroud, who might be excellent next year, but like Koscielny ,will need time to adapt to a new league and new team. And we're not even starting him right now.
We were mediocre last year and RVP saved our asses with some incredible play.
We were 2 points away from finishing 4th which would have put us out of the Champion's League this year.
So many occasions last year that if not for RVP's brilliant individual skill we wouldn't have gotten those 2 points- thinking of his volley Everton 1-0 for instance.
Arsenal has sold a lot of talent and not replaced it with equivalent talent. Maybe this is the season when it shows.
