Adrian backs Arsenal’s Petr Cech to bounce back after forgettable debut

The manager asked me to sit and talk to everyone to help get them into position, not to let Arsenal catch us out on the break, to keep it simple and not try to do too much. Bilic said after the match on NBCSN’s broadcast report by BleacherReport.


For **** sake Arsenal something always doesn’t go right hurry up and sign Ozil!!

“He has a presence, he is a very cool guy, he was not fazed or impressed by playing at the Emirates”, Bilic said.

“Only on paper he is 16”. Put it this way, if Lionel Messi was in front of me, I would be more fazed than Reece.

If the rest of his teammates show this amount of application and desire, surely they can’t be ruled out of the title race just yet?

Sean Horan tweeted: “16 yr old Reece Oxford returns home and empties his pockets. 1″.

“I can’t see many convincing performances today”.

At no stage would we have ever been allowed to believe all the hype that surrounded football.

“It’s a massive loss for us because we had great confidence and now it’s time for us to settle down, stay healthy and look forward to next Sunday”. “We worked with their players, running back with them, but it was not easy.” he added.

Oxford is not the youngest Premier League debutant at 16 years 236 days.

“I knew it could be a tricky game“. We killed ourselves. With the experience we have in our team, it’s hard to understand. Hector Bellerin was out with a thigh injury and Alexis Sanchez is still working on his fitness after the Chile’s Copa America campaign.

The first goal came from a Cheikhou Kouyate header following a free kick from new West Ham signing, Dmitri Payet. Mauro Zarate pounced as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain failed to clear from defence to double the Hammers lead.

Cech posted a message on Twitter following the match to express his disappointment at the result which was “not in the script” and apologised for his mistake.

Giroud is a brilliant target man who makes the players around him better with his unselfish link-up play, but the striker (as has been noted time and again) lacks the speed and movement to scare defenders.


The Spanish keeper was interviewed by the club’s representatives after the game, “It was a massive win from us away home in a big stadium against a very good team”. By then, the damage had been done. We play on the floor”, chanted the Hammers fans, and ” Are you watching Allardyce?

Will the ‘big boys’ regret losing out to West Ham in this transfer
