Few of their lot moaning about Kane, Alli, Winks and Hugo all missing the internationals in order to be fresh for their game!

The tide has actually turned hasn’t it?

Dunno what they're moaning for, Wilshere and Walcott have pulled out as well...oh silly me! I'm forgetting they didn't get picked because they're shit.

I was listening to the Football Weekly Podcast this morning and Barry Glendenning mentioned that it's quite well known that Ramsey and Sanchez won't pass to each other. Can you imagine anyone at Tottenham getting away with that under Poch!?!

Not even the salt & pepper?

That is shocking and I’ve just looked that up myself and read an article about it.

Again shows how Wenger has become weak as he should have stamped that out.

That's ridiculous. How can Wenger just let that slide? He's completely lost it.

I have access to Opta's database via work so I've actually checked this a bit, chronologically in reverse order.

MCI-ARS
Ramsey to Sanchez 5, Sanchez to Ramsey 5.

ARS-SWA
Ramsey to Sanchez 2, Sanchez to Ramsey 3.
This is the only match where these numbers are comparatively low when you look at their passes to other attacking players.

EVE-ARS
Ramsey to Sanchez 4, Sanchez to Ramsey 5.

WAT-ARS
Neither played

ARS-BRI
Ramsey to Sanchez 10, Sanchez to Ramsey 3.


So the stats don't really back the claim much as Sanchez doesn't have high pass combinations with anyone in recent games, and Ramsey has significantly higher numbers with defensive players, the other attackers are at a similar number to Sanchez.

Which of course doesn't mean that they don't hate each other.

They are being linked with fekir, the guy who sparked that pitch invasion at st etienne last weekend.

You can understand why. Wenger is very astute when it comes to identifying the needs of his squad and the lack of attacking options is clearly his biggest problem

I've seen some videos of that, and the Lyon players look like absolute pricks once the fans invade. There's video of them down the tunnel congratulating Fekir on riling everyone up and generally grinning like fucking idiots.

Embarrassing. For the fans and for Lyon.
