The Numbers Game – Festive Form – Midfielders

Continuing our members articles which examine the numbers behind the previous four Gameweeks, we now switch our attention to the midfield area. With a packed festive programme providing hat-tricks for Santi Cazorla, Gareth Bale and Theo Walcott, it was a period which again saw the heavy-hitting midfielder come to the fore. Incredibly, however, that trio were surpassed by the performances of a player who has rolled back the years to recapture a level of returns and consistency that we perhaps thought were behind him.

Mark Mark created the beast. He's now looking to tame it.”

      For the Gibbs goal, who assisted at the weekend? Giroud or Arteta?

              Giroud. That's his second lovely chip over the defenders.

                        Ba or Defoe ? That's the last decision I need to make on WC. I jumped on Ba straight away but it just seems mad selecting an obvious rotation risk. (Got Bale and Mata).

                            If Ba was guaranteed starts, then it would be simple. Pick players that play. Defoe for me.

                              I don't get why people think Giroud is poor.

                                  I don't. His link-up play is fantastic.

                                      He's only improving every time i see him. He is good with the ball at his feet too, has a good shot on him. And great link up play.

                                      It's hard to live up to the mighty Robin van Persie.

                                          i find him the most useless striker in arsenal recent history

                                          chamack is class act for him

                                          Giroud is big doneky in my opinion

                                                    Too lightweight. There's about 7 or 8 fwds ahead of him at present.

                                                        I am not saying he's the best. He's not poor imo.

                                                        i need some help to decide who to get for dgw

                                                        A) Ming ➡ Trunbull (my other gk is Bunn so this could be possible big risk)

                                                        -if i do this transfer i'll bench Silva and play both Caz and Walcott

                                                        B) Silva ➡ Hazard ( 1 week C punt )

                                                        -if i do this i'll bench Caz

                                                        it's really hard decission since i am scared to go in dgw without Chelsa defender and i in case that i get Trunbull over Mata i could play ,,safe'' and C Mata but i am so so temped to C hazard

                                                        thoughs?

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        But I can understand going for Mariappa ahead of him, there is doubt about Harte's spot with Shorey coming back. Mariappa's more nailed on.

He's only bench fodder really so it's the gametime I am looking at and Mariappa is more nailed on given Harte's rotation with Shorey (as you say).

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          I've currently put Cazorla on my bench for the weekend but if Michu plays 90 minutes against Chelsea tonight I could consider him (away to Everton this w/e)
