Aston Villa Message Board
........is Welbeck well worth the payback for RVP's desertion of Arsenal to Manure? By the comments some are making out there(like R Ferdinand) about the surprise deal made by V Gaal, it sure is.
Wenger recently said his best ever signing was Lauren. Sagna wasn't even close to Lauren at his best.
LAUREN - KEOWN - ADAMS - COLE
LJUNGBERG - VIEIRA - FABREGAS - PIRES
BERGKAMP - HENRY
Subs: Campbell, Dixon, Petit, RVP, Overmars, Lehmann.

Face it Butch, no matter how hard you try nobody like you. Even John posts in sympathy only, I think.....
AAARRRHHH! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA HA H AH HA HA HA HA
You only pretend to know anything about football. Have never played the game. Have never been to a 1st class football match. And certainly have never had a good friend in your life. AAARRRHHH! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. Give it up, you were finished years ago......jobless, and alone.....who would have you??? AAARRRHHH! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
I think it will be one of the 3 teams you mention who might take 4th. Arsenal are very weak indeed and Wenger is up to his old tricks of turning a blind eye to the obvious and ruining players who are perfectly capable.
Merstesacker, can not play in the big games any longer because he is just too slow. Ozil has been jerked around to such an extend that, IMO, he should either play in the middle as our number 10 or sit on the bench. Sanchez is played in his weakest spot on the left wing and is useless there and our only redeeming quality at the moment, speed, was taken out of the team when Wenger chose Cazorla over Ox. Wenger just doesn't seem to ne able to adjust to modern football.
Yes Arsenal can still put on a good show when playing against inferior opponents on a good day but only when there is a gap in quality big enough for us to force our game on the opponent. There are fewer and fewer teams that fit this criteria.
When we play against decent teams we struggle and when we play against good team we are virtually without a real chance of winning, as we saw against Dortmund and Chelsea. Two teams with managers who have helped define and shape the modern game and master the tactical nuances that Wenger misses.
Don't get me wrong I appreciate Wenger and I respect him. But I have now seen that even when given money he fails to address gaping wholes in the squad and in our playing style and tactics. There is no hope of Wenger winning a major title ever again if you ask me.
Ozil and Sanchez are great players but not what Arsenal needed. For less money we could have bought Costa and Strootman over the last few years and we would have been a better team. We also are way too thin in the back after the departure or Vermaelen and Sagna.
Wenger just doesn't know how to put it all together any longer, the game has moved on several chapters since Wenger wrote a chapter, ask Barcelona and Bayern Munich and even Chelsea.
HAHAHA!! Keep biting my educationally subnormal Geordie fishy!
Y'all come back now, see if you can have the last word, we know you want to.

Is that the last word, my infatuated little Geordie nobody?
For the front four I’m suggesting we field Alexis Sanchez playing behind Danny Welbeck, with Walcott
and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the wings. Not only does this front three have pace, but it has power, energy, goals and skill in abundance.
Chamberlain is starting to find his form and the other three are entering the prime of their careers, so why not.. If they click, they could form a front four that will spearhead the club for the next few years.
Sanchez and Welbeck are known for their phenomenal work-rate. Pressuring from the front with pace is an extremely dangerous tactic, a tactic Arsenal will now be capable of implementing. It is essential Walcott and Chamberlian also utilise their energy levels by pressing high up the pitch too. As the two wingers, they will need to be able to track back and help the full backs. Back to you lot. I know how hard it is to keep all the joy and excitement under control at this suggestion. But do try to keep a positive side Govinda. Please do not reply if all you can find are negatives.
.....has to be a good positive result against S'hampton, which could trigger a good run over Xmas. We live in hope and expectation with Arsenal. BTW any news on the CL draw or am I early?
Is, IMO, that we often push our key players to the limit and beyond. Wenger admits that Sanchez is in the red zone yet he continues to play him. Being in the red zone is not about being able to chase balls as much of give 100% it is much more about becoming much more injury prone and injuries sustained whilst in the red zone generally take much longer to heal.
We should have the depth to rotate players enough so we don't need to run them into the red zone. It is better to lose Sanchez for one game than for 4 weeks. Yet this seems to be one of recuuring errors going back further than playing Fabregas until he was injured often.
To me this is not so smart given the big injury problems we have. We don't know how far we can push it? When a player is in the red zone stop pushing him at all!!!!!
Alexis Sanchez will be given next week off after Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admitted his £30million man is in the ‘red zone’.
The Chile international has been one of the stars of the season so far following his switch from Barcelona. But, including internationals, Sanchez has played 27 games since August, and this has taken a toll.
And Wenger will rest the striker after today’s clash with Stoke.Arsenal head to Turkey on Monday for their Champions League clash against Galatasaray, but Sanchez will stay in London.
‘Sanchez is in the red zone, you can see when he plays, but he can dig deep.
He played his 27th game on Wednesday (against Southampton) since the start of the season. Unfortunately you never know how far you can push it.
‘We are not scientific enough to predict that completely but he recovers very quickly.’
This is interesting, Indonesia is reportedly the number one destination for Australian child sex tourists, mostly starting in Bali but also travelling to other parts of the country.
The problem in Bali was highlighted by Luh Ketut Suryani, head of Psychiatry at Udayana University, as early as 2003.
Luh Ketut Surayani warned that a low level of awareness of paedophilia in Bali had made it the target of international paedophile organisations. On 19 February 2013, government officials announced measures to combat paedophilia in Bali...and we all know who currently resides in Australia and has been claiming to be moving to Bali soon....you gotta larf because if you think about it too much, you'll end up puking!

I think it's safe to say that Welbeck looks to be settling in well. Last night was against a team that just wasn't up to the task. I am however delighted for him and hope he is able to build confidence from his personal performance.
One game doth not make the legend.

Independent News; Article by Jack Pitt-Brookes.
Danny Welbeck felt a sense of vindication Wed. night after scoring his first hat-trick.........
Welbeck has scored 6 goals for club and country since £16 million move from Manchester. When asked about his goal scoring record Wed. night ...the England International said criticism didn't matter if they applied to his years playing on the wing of a four man midfield. " Nobody can really criticise my finishing because they don't see me playing in a forward position too often." Welbeck said " but now I am getting into those positions I want to be sticking the ball in the back of the net. Obviously people can say I've not scored enough goals. But stick the best striker on the wing in a four man midfield and see if they score goals........"
Kind of shoots your square headed thinking down in flames, doesn't it. But of course how silly of me to think that your kind will not twist that around to suit your own purposes. So lets be having it. Lets see you twist and squirm your way of that Butch the alcoholic brown family. and BTW I'll let the Man U board know as well OK? Save you the bother...... Feeling a bit sickened are we? Never mind a few more tins down your neck and you'll begin to feel even worse...AAARRRRRHH!
Big game against PL leader tomorrow. Of course my heart predicts a victory.
But my brain predicts another loss. There are many factors going against us.
1. Moureen is by far the better manager in particular when it comes to big games and tactics. Wenger doesn't have any tactical inclinations.
2. Starting 11 of Chelsea when it includes Costa is better than our starting 11.
3. Chelsea is the more mature less naive defending team.
4. Arsenal seem to have trouble following up a good game with a second good game. Given that we played well this Wednesday would predict we will disappoint this Sunday.
5. We have a tendency to fall behind in these type of games and miss some good chances early on. Often it is the team that scores first in these type of games that gets the result.

It's amazing what the oldest wooly woofter in Cairns knows about Man Ushyted (which is very little to begin with) considering the old duck hasn't set foot inside Old Trafford and gets most of her information via the Yahoo articles and follows the games on the Yahoo Matchcasts.
For such a seasoned world traveller who is always roaming the forests of Asia on secret missions saving wild orangutans and the like, she seems to have plenty of spare time to spend on here trying to make out that she's an expert on every single footballer in today's game!
Cue mentioning 'geordies' when her temper is up! - LMFAO!!!
Oh look, a little Geordie fishy wishy -- CHOMP CHOMP!!
