      Running and pressing good but lost possession on far to many occasions

      Think you need to watch the game again mate.

      Yea apart from one stray pass Trent was excellent not sure what rosy is on about there.

      Talking about Bobby.

      And all this is is two fans disagreeing about a player performance. Not a problem at all.

      Joe Gomez was really strong tonight as well, especially in the closing 20-30 minutes. This team of defending (attacking) champions made a strong statement as to their ability. Won it with pressing, and patiently held possession, limiting Arsenal's chances on the counter.

      Gomez well under rated always calm and assured. And hes nit even near his peak

      Said in game about Trent being our weak link. Fantastic footballer but his positioning when defending is poor, it will be exploited. He played them onside for Lacazetes chance Alisson bailed us out.

      Too good a baller not to play but at right full for his whole career, will it work?






      Know what you mean Brian, but we’ve been down this road before, Trent isn’t a Phil Neale, we know that, but when he’s firing is there a better RwB on the planet, not for me, so I’m willing to sacrifice some of his defensive deficiencies, for the most part his positioning is covered by Joe or Joel and of course occasionally it doesn’t look good,
      Things may change when we play a 4-2-3-1, we’ll see , it’s also possible Trent could play further forward and we’ll see Neco or A other in that role, for now tho, I wouldn’t change anything about Trent , he’s not broke so no fixing required.

      Think thats the key Billy, best RWB, we dont play wing backs though. Hes a cracking player but I think a Bayern for example would exploit his positioning defensively

      Bobby did lose possession a couple of times I'll agree with that. Wasnt easy for him playing against 3 CB's though. Thought he did well overall.

      Have to feel very good about this team. I've been reading various little doubts about what everyone else is doing in the transfer market, and fair play, it's a new season. But this team's early form gives a lot of reason for optimism.

      Now here's to 11 changes for Thursday and then let's make it 4 for 4 against Villa on Sunday.

      I seen him lose the ball once or twice but what player doesn't mate?

      What I also saw was a player who made us play how we did. He joined everything together and their defense didn't know now where he was a lot of the time which caused a lot of problems.

      Yes he wasn't easy against 3CBs as you say but was just sloppy on a few occasions apologise maybe a little harsh from myself

      What a start to the season.
      How frocking good was Mane tonight!? Was fuming when he came off but then Jota scores the clincher!

      Ali and Trent both superb. Really strong performance from Gomez.

      Cherry on the top was Jürgen rinsing Keane in the post game, that was hilarious

      Hmm, yes ok possibly regarding Bayern, but how many play like them, I guess we’ll cross that bridge etc, hopefully we will have that exact dilemma in late April or May, in the interim tho, we can busy ourselves winning another title 🤪

      Watching that Lacazette chance back, crazy how quick Alisson is on the penalty spot making himself big. Completely frazzled Lacazette.

      At 2-1 and after Lacazetes chance, was edgy, not because we were playing poorly - the opposite, cause we were playing so well, and having chances, but were not out of sight. And then Mane got taken off, could not believe it, gave him the MOTM!!!!
      Jota did well in the end, got into good positions, and got his goal eventually with a clinical finish.
      And it was NO MORE than we deserved.
      FAR better than them on the night.
      Fab did well in the middle, good to have gotten Gomez back so he could move in there, given injuries.
      And two FBs combine for number two, they are unreal :)
      Important save from Ally, CBs generally did well.
      Some years back we'd have got nervous and conceded a leveller - but man, this is some team we have now :)
      Three out of three - can't ask for more than that.

      Bobby isn't struggling but he isn't in good nick either. We have options in Jota. Mane looked a bit miffed coming off..like to see that but I think Bobby is under more threat. Mane has been brilliant in the 3 games, world class, him and Mo are two best in this league.
