tonight's 4-3-3 is the way to go. if playing (solid) like this week in, week out means benching mata, oscar and other fans favourites so be it, i don't care as long as we're winning or taking a point (w/o conceding!!!) away at one of the best teams in epl this season. ffs sunderland and stoke have scored for fun against us and now, when we're rock solid at the back, people are still moaning... two games at the bridge now, hopefully two wins and let the title battle begin!

I said when Ramires is playing RW what he didnt. read properly and than comment :)

should have put on Schürrle for Torres and not for Hazard. would have been probably more effective. even though Hazard wasnt really good today, he is still capable to create anything. MAta for Willian should have been our second sub but Mourinho wanted to keep hold on to the draw.

yes dude, this makes u look far better, just cos mou might want rambo to play as RW, he should be sacked.

arsenal were on top. it was not the like the first half that we were creating chances cos i dont think we did create any in the 2nd half (probably that 4 on 3 which willian fucked up). putting on mata at that time would have been useless. schurrle for torres was maybe, it wa sjose's call and a 50-50 one.

So we should rely on luck. So you want more attacking players and maybe a few luck rabbits feet then yes?

All this tactical bullshit is just a waste of time...let's just 'ride our luck'. You're not disappointed with the result, but you don't like the way we achieved it. That's a little ungrateful isn't it, especially at this time of year.

No by ride our luck I mean we being more daring and take the game to them, because we are capable of that. We got the players for that. Yeah because we didn't play with the right mentality for a big club, do you ever see Bayern/Barca/Madrid do this no matter who their opponents are? If we want to compete with them we need that mentality. And no I am very happy with the point like I said, it is just that approach is not nice to see. Now if we fail to beat Swansea and draw/lose next week against Liverpool, we could find ourselves like 7-8 points behind City/Pool/Arsenal and this result might then be seems not that good of a result anymore.

I am a bit puzzled here tonight. To win, to play more offensively against Arsenal made no sense. just a small reminder here, the weather conditions weren´t ideal to do it anyway. Nothing was lost tonight. The team is still at the top, two home games coming up, if won, who knows Chelsea could be leading the pack in early January.

I think we just lacked a bit of luck and a decent final ball. I think we got in enough dangerous positions to score at least a couple.

Agreed. Willian, who is a diligent worker and a very good player, doesn't seem to have the final ball in his locker. I counted at least 3 occasions when a pass was on and he either didn't see it or played a poor ball. I like him though and he put in another quality shift.

If we had gone for it and lost (which was entirely possible because Arsenal are a good team) then people like you would have been the first ones moaning.

The fact is that we negated Arsenal's threat and created more chances than them. That's how you win leagues.

I guess Jose's counting on us beating United, Spuds and le Arse at the Bridge just like we did with City. If that happens, the 'playing for the draw' strategy was an inspired one and the sacrifice of watching boring games was worth it.

Anyway, after tonight I'm pretty sure that City are favourites to win the title this season.

No I would actually be happy if we lost because we tried to play good football, I would never complain. Yes but this strategy rely on others as well, not taking the initiative. Do you really see us shifting from this for our game against Swansea and Liverpool? Or is this the approach that is gonna be retained as soon as we scored a goal or two from now on?

I think Jose likes him very much as well that he is preferring him to Oscar who was one of our best players. His movement and runs off the ball are sublime, not to mention his great defensive work-rate. But his delivery in the final third has been far from great and not just today. If he can improve on that he can be one of the best players in the league, imo.

in my view City were the favourites from the start ,, they have Strikers

We played some good football today.

At times indeed, the lightning quick counter attacking and pacey movement were good from us in that 1st half, but then Jose just decided to end any chance of us winning probably from the 70th min onward. Maybe this is a bit of a overreaction from me today for this match, but I just hope we improve offensively in the future games. Now lets look forward to that Swansea game and hope we play some proper real good football and everyone can be happy for real.

MOT is HAZARD no doubt in that i think

regarding the performance ,, balanced to far extend but i have many question markes !

Why mou insists of benching MATA in inportant game like that and he sure knows that MATA has soultions !

Why changing hazard in last 15 minutes as he was p,laying in top form and presents best indiviual solutions and tallest period of controlling ball

Why joining OSCAR and appears that he isn't in the best form to play !

Really angry for losing expensive points easily because of manager's understood strategy !

GOOD LUCK IN WHAT'S NEXT & KTBFFH

As soon as I saw your name I thought it would be a criticism of Mourinho. For you to compliment him seems like a once in a lifetime thing icon_eek.gif

Guess it is because I am so used to seeing you rip into him laughingsmiley001.gif

Why are people complaining about this result? Everyone was saying we were going to get hammered before the match.

Think people need to be realistic. If we win the league this season; it ain't because we have the best team or squad...

Can't say I'm "delighted" with the result - though a draw at Arsenal is a credible result, and many of us (myself included) were fearing the worst considering our defensive woes) - but I am chuffed to bits with our performance. Defensively miserly, and we were by far the more threatening attacking side. Almost makes you wonder what might have happened if we'd have gone for it tonight, but one thing is for sure if we'd have been more attacking, then Arsenal would have had many more chances than the couple Giroud spurned.

Terry and Willian were particularly brilliant tonight, but a good performance all round. We shaded it tonight - just - but a draw is a very fair result. I also think Mike Dean got all three major controversies absolutely spot on - the challenge by Mikel was never a yellow, let alone a red as Jamie Carragher thought; it was a brilliant 50-50 were both players wanted the ball and naturally one would lose out; the challenge by Ramires was a yellow and nothing more; and as for Arsenal complaints about Walcott being fouled in the box for a penalty? Laughable. Shows how desperate they were.

There's only one team in London with a European Cup, and tonight we showed why. Excellent defensive performance - and a fucking clean sheet for Christmas!

Decent result but I'm really annoyed at our negative tactics in the last 30 minutes.

Personally I think we could've nicked it if we took a little bit more of an initiative.

Perfectly summed it up in 2 sentences.
