Having watched the highlights numerous times now, I'm loving all of Nasri's contributions. Countless times he pulled in the opposition for him to simply roll it or pass it to someone in bundles of space. The lay up for Noble was superb and someone with a sweet left foot is burying that all day long. The close control he has is top quality even after such a long lay off. There isn't much rust. :thup:

A real dull statto question.

I suspect no-one knows the answer off hand.

Does anyone know how many goals we have scored at either end of the pitch since the move to the new stadium ?

It seems (in my head) we score more goals attacking The Bobby Moore end....

Might be just my imagination. Always felt we scored more goals attacking The North Bank in the old days.

Perhaps an indirect answer is:

FIRST HALF: GF 19 GA 32
SECOND HALF: GF 41 GA 43

We normally attack our end in the second half (I still haven't worked out the names because the ground's round)

Wow..

That very must suggests it could be quite significant.

Yes.....Bobby Moore is the left as you would watch on TV. So attacking the left hand goal .

Mate, when he cut in me, my brother and my dad all jumped up and shouted in unison "NO DON'T SHOOT". I'd have laid my house on him slicing it high and wide in that moment if I could. :lol:

hopefully pelle will get him practising his shooting as it is awful. beats a man or two cuts inside and his head goes. sort his finishing out and we have a good player there who has thankfully appeared to sort himself out and is back fitness wise and form wise. just needs to learn how to shoot !

if he could sort out his mental issues (football wise) he wouldn't be here - he'd be a 20M player when we bought him.

it's his biggest weakness and one loads of us have talked about for ages. he just doesn't think..

watch - at time he will come out with the ball wide right but this happens when he's more central - there will be a player wide left and open, he doesn't even look. if he looked and decided differently it would be one thing. but he NEVER does.......he invariably runs wide goes to the line and options get less and less until he has one option left.

Saturday was another example. I think it was Arnie top of the box when he decided to lash it into the stratosphere.

he won't improve now, he's what 27 ? it's very difficult to change years and years of ingrained mentality - the best we can hope for is that Pellers get's him to occasionally look. and hope.

it has happened too often now for us to say "that's a one off." it isn't. if I was one of his teams mates (and as big as him :D ) I'd bollock him big time - or just twat him.

:D

Bournemouth played really well yesterday and were pretty unlucky in my opinion.
They certainly seemed to have more about them then Everton, even though Everton won.

Once the giddyness bubbles of the win go pop, the reality is there's a huge gulf between Ogbonna and The General - he did ok yesterday however he's the weakest link.

Did ok? FFS the bloke was excellent.
I also happen to think our defence looks less like conceding with the current defensive line up compared to when Balbuena partners Issa.

All about opinions etc.

Turns 29 in March :shock:

Really is quite funny though, he'll take it past a few players and i'll start getting excited but there's always that moment when he slows down and looks up which is when it's either going miles over or he'll scuff a pass.

I sit towards the STB end and am convinced I never get to see goals! It made a nice change when they attacked this way second half against Brighton and Arnie dragged us out of a poor defeat.

Brilliant OV.

When I saw the line ups, Lacazette and Aubameyang were the only 2 that I’d actually want in our side. The other 9 I was happier with what we’ve got, and that’s with Yarmolenko, Lanzini, Reid, Hernandez and Balbuena injured. Good to see how they envy some of our players.

Decent oppo view, from them as well :shock: The comment about some of our players making them a better side, spot on. Lovely to have some real talent in the squad.

Our first eleven on paper looks the most talented team we have had in arguably two decades, certainly midfield & up top.

I love beating Arsenal :scarfer:
