    This video from different camera angle is quite interesting.

    Although Flamini is one of the least favorite players, I find his "leadership barking orders" to be intriguing.

    When Theo scored, you see all our players jumping in joy around Theo, but Flamster was dead serious and was already barking at Theo to keep focus.
    Also after Yaya scored (which Flamini was unprepared to defend against) Flamini is barking instructions to BFG too.

    Our billionaire is mental :)

    Thierry Henry is very high on Flamini, so I'm thinking he's a solid character to have around, and he's not as bad on the pitch as we make out sometimes.

    I call him trash, but he's not really.

    Barca are probably two levels above City and against these teams sometimes you just have to ride your luck.

    I actually totally agree with you regarding the style of defending and think that Kos and Mert compliment each other extremely well...

    ....however, ever since the WC Mert has obviously lost a bit of focus and as a result has been making small mistakes he rarely used to make before. In this game, he was nearly perfect so that's great to see. Hopefully, the chase for the title brings back his total commitment.

    My only concern about the solidity of their partnership is the lack of chances that Gabriel and Chambers get. But defensive lineups are always something that's better left with as few changes as possible

    Just watched the highlights. Ramsey and Campbell should have got at least 1 each.

    Definitely, but it gives hope. We should have and could have smashed both of the Manchester clubs easily!

    I want Ramsey to work on his finishing, when he's in the middle he's just a chance magnet. Always in the right place at the right time, if he gets his finishing back he could reach 15 goals per season easily.

    Yeah he can finish when he get going. The first season here, Ramsey were finishing for fun, if he can find such form for second half of the season we are in for a ride!

    If he had his finishing in shape he'd be around halfway to that mark now, maybe he could even get around 20 goals throughout a entire season if his form didn't drop too much.

    It was, truly WC strike.

    I think he doesn't quite have the legs and energy to play the game he used to/wants to play. Flamini was never a technician and it was always about his tenacity but he had quite a lot of injuries in Italy and he physically declined once he neared 30. Never understood the criticism really. He is an OK backup. I mean Chelsea won the title last year with Obi Mikel as backup for Matic!

    That Walcott finish was bread and butter for Jermaine Defoe, scored those types nearly every week.

    Massively underrated at his peak. One of the best finishers of the last 20 odd years. Had he played for us or Man Utd ten years ago, he'd be a PL legend. Just never had the platform to ever show his true worth.

    Have taken a lot of flak on here before for saying Walcott is better than Ljungberg ever was. Still stand by it; swap Walcott for Ljungberg in that starting XI and you improve it. That being said, Ljungberg was probably one of the weakest players in that amazing XI.

    At his peak he was barely good enough for Sp**s.

    I don't know why, but I always feel it's a bit apples and oranges when people compare those two. Did Freddie really play RWF? Or was he deployed deeper in a different formation? He was signed by Wenger for his exploits in CMF/AMF for Sweden. It's a weird one.

    say yes To Sweet Soulful Vinai

    Not this again :lol:

    Comparison is not as laughable as it was a few years ago, but Ljungberg is still a long way ahead of Walcott.

    Also as @Jury has pointed out, they're pretty differently positionally.

    'I'd compare Freddie to Ramsey if needed be.

    why does the page crash so often ? I'm on iPad.

    It's probably the browser on your ipad that's crashing, the site loads a lot of stuff and it might not be able to handle it.

    Oh come on, I don't usually think you're trolling but this has to be a wind up.
