Per Mertesacker

Legend Status: Cemented!

@lengooner :wink:

I got it wrong about Mertesacker.
He was our best defender and deserved man of the match.
He put in a real captains performance against a very good team.


#303

he was magnificent


#304

It was since he last started. I think he played a bit before his injury.


#305

Never been his biggest fan but that performance to day will go down as one of the best ever by an Arsenal captain.


#306

My like finger is broken from this thread.

I’m going to say this is the most legendary performance of this decade. I assumed Wenger’s apparent lack of faith was because he was finished but this was a true captain’s cup final performance. He must have a place at this club if we play a back 3.

We go on about “match fitness” all the time so where the fuck did this come from.


#307

Lord knows, had he played all season in a three we might have challenged

incredible display apart from letting Silva score, Ospina shoulda saved it anyway


#308

If it wasn’t deflected then yes.


#309

No he should have still been able to deal with that. He flapped at it.

[/quote]I hope your finger still has enough energy to like stuff, I’ve temporary increased the individual likes per day useage from 50 to something a lot higher in celebration of our win.

Have fun folks :sunglasses:

(Don’t go too mad, please Luca :joy: )


#311

He could have done better maybe but the deflection probs hurt him and he still played very well and who cares anyway! We won :sunglasses::trophy:


#312

Showed his experience today despite being written off for his lack of his pace. Congrats :sunglasses:

KANYE AND BFG-- WHAT A TOP AND APROPOS COMBINATION!

Fucking loved this legend today, couldn’t believe how good he was, hasn’t missed a fucking step. Shambles that a no-talent non BFG legend like Gabriel has played over him this season.

What a man.


#316

Triple fucking tackle!!!


#317

What a fucking tune!


#318

What a hero - hasn’t played all season and really was up for it… love the guy.


#319

Fuck Per, I can’t believe how wrong you made me look in regards to the cup final. Awesome stuff.

Iconic.
