I'll take that any day... but bugger the six goals, only one goal conceded in the first four matches - and that was because of Wozza doing a very impressive (and worrying) impersonation of his Polski mate Flappianski.

And, as promised - I've order my Cazorla shirt. I could watch him ALL day... he's a little genius!

team still needs more Arshavin, and Sagna back, otherwise it's a good start.

our squad has very good depth to it this season...

Good starting eleven against Soton and the bench was very strong;

Arshavin, Koscielny, Ramsey, Walcott, Giroud, Santos, Mannone

Plus Diaby, Rosicky, Wilshere and Sagna all still to return from injury

Agreed... am enjoying seeing Mertesacker and Gervinho come on too, it's not exactly a new thing for the continental players to take a season (sometimes more) to get comfortable and up to speed in the EPL, some people's expectations are a little unrealistic. 

Though Poldi and Santi are seemingly exceptions, hope to see OG get one this week against his old joint - big ups on his comments about celebrating (or not) if he does score against them too!

Decent start to the season, as you've said Cazorla looks immense, I rate Podolski and Giroud just needs a bit more time to settle.

Gervinho through the middle was a major surprise for Soton but just more proof that Arsène knows!

Bring on Montpellier then City, I know some City fans are a bit concerned about the coming weekend (especially given their match against Madrid). 

Early days but I'm feeling good for the season!

Cazorla is ace as fuck. What a player.

Justice for the 96.

Two big ones coming up, yet im nowhere near as worried as i have been in the previous seasons. We now have depth to the squad and a team work ethic that should see us near the very top (If not top) of the table by the end of this season.

Secondified Ubinho... even the talk around Walcott isn't phasing me tbh - if he stays, great. If he wants to go, good luck to him.

I hope Mannone is still in goal. Shouldn't have been dropped for the Southampton game.

Szcz is a better keeper overall but he was injured in the warm-up so in that sense, I agree.

My reasoning is that keepers need a continued run of games to build up confidence. Mannone had kept two away clean sheets and from all reports done nothing wrong. I just think it would have been good to give him an extended run until it appeared he maybe wasn't up to standard. He played in I think 24 consecutive games at Hull last year where he also equaled their club record for most clean sheets in a row. Seems like that spell has really improved him.

I was more annoyed at the goal Szcz gave away against Southampton. It looked like a regulation catch.

Fair point. 

Seems like Mannone will be back this weekend anyway.

Surprised that we played our first team v Montpellier, surely they can't back up against City, I'd much rather have had us our starters v City and see how we go in the EPL.

 draw is OK result , IIRC MCFC only dropped 1 game at home last season

surprized Gerviniho plays ahead of Arshavin and Ox, because his decision making appears deeply flawed. Compounded by bringing on Walcott?? Disappointing goal conceded . poor giveaway by Gibbs, then cheap corner, then 'defendable' header. 


Giroud went well, Carzola is very good, KOS and Meat good, thought CJ went OK if still clearly behind Sagna in the pecking order. Ramsey (of all people) went super good, great work rate and commitment. 


all in all team going well, Scz, Verm , Sagna and Wilshire still to come back quite positive outlook I reckon.

I'll take that point every day. A good result. Far from a perfect performance with plenty of improvement left, will give the squad some confidence.

We were awesome in the first half, vinho needs shooting practise. Really hope santi can keep the form up, Is it just me or is jenkinson doing pretty well??? Gibbs is also going well and hasnt been injured yet which is a minor mircale in itself. Rambo was rather lively which was good to see......Theo really needs to get his shit together if he wants gametime, i dont want him sold as i still have some hope he will come right but it wont be the end of the world if he does go. Chelsea is there for the taking i reckon, if we can manage a win this weekend it will be an awesome start for us
