    Francis Coquelin

    by John Feb 13, 2015 10:52

    I don't think we would be where we are without him in the PL. He shows us what we have been missing. The question is though (to me) should we still try to sign Schneiderlin or a player like him? I think so.

  • This board is dead and I bet that sad sack who reckons that 'it' is moving to Bali will end up spending the remainder of 'it's' days dwelling about the fact a geordie tormented 'it' for the best part of a decade and there was nothing 'it' could do about it! - LMFAO!!!

    Happy New Year

    by John Jan 2, 2015 16:56

    The only thing that's going to shift Wenger and his thinking, is if Tottenham knock us out of a place in the CL. And that is not as far away as some may think. A sobering thought for many, including the Arsenal board, who just might sit up and pay attention for once. BTW A Happy New Year to you and everyone. BTW again what was AW thinking of when he had 3 or 4 five foot 'nothings' up front against a six foot plus defence at S'hampton?

    Wilshere caught smoking...again

    by John Feb 5, 2015 13:49

    A few seasons ago we never thought we would be talking about Wilshire this way. About his potential etc. We expected that by now the talking would be about his actual game rather than his potential.

    He should no longer get a free ride and for the moment, even if he is fit, I don't see his place in the starting 11.

    The other problem Arsenal have, IMO, is that we have too many players that have similar attributes. Good technique, easily ran of the ball, small physique, not particularly pacy, preferring to play in the middle of the park.

    IMO, we can only really play with a maximum of 2 such players at a time. If you consider 4 defenders and 1 DM that leaves room (ideally) for 2 small technical players, a striker and two quick wide players.

    In fact I don't even think there is space for Ozil in our starting 11.

    At the moment I would argue for Sanchez-Giroud-Walcott up front and Bellerin - Mert - Cos - Monreal or Gibbs in the back with Coquelin as DM.

    This leaves 2 places for centrally functioning midfielders and to me on current form Cazorla is a shoe in leaving Ramsey, Wilshire, Rosicky, Ozil, Ox. When all fit my second choice would be Ox since he has pace which you need in today's game IMO.

    Monaco-Arsenal predictions

    by Govinda Mar 17, 2015 14:45

    Hi Mar.

    Well Monaco parked the proverbial bus and let us attack.

    We came so close.

    FA Cup and the battle for 2nd in the league next.

    Oh look, it's fair-weather Jackar$e, nowhere to be seen after the Stoke game, but pops up whenever Arsenal wins.

  • I personally think AW would have settled for a draw at the start of the game. And from a improvement point of view it made very little difference, as once again results in the PL keep yo-yoing up down each week. The equalizer was a matter of naivety. Should have been playing 'keep the ball' instead of waiting for the whistle to blow in desperation. However at the end of the season it will have had little effect on 3rd or 4th place. Also does anyone not see a golden opportunity in the CL having drawn Monaco?? I do, and I think we could be the very dark horses here. The unbeaten in several matches now, still leaves us with great potential. Though to read Yahoo and the rest of the Arsenal knockers, its 'the end' for Arsenal and AW. ....guffaw!

    Happy New Year

    by John Jan 2, 2015 16:56

    Happy New Year John and those few left on this board. I think Podolski makes us weaker in theory only. Wenger refused to play him and even chose Sanogo ahead of him.

    Personally I don't think Wenger will do what it takes in the window and on the pitch. I also think he is burning out Sanchez by playing him way too much. A few weeks ago Wenger admitted Sanchez is playing in the red zone, yet with the exception of 1 CL game he has not rested him. This could come back to haunt us. Also when Ozil returns we will be even weaker defensively. So my prediction that we finish outside of the top 4 still stands.

    We don't even have the budget to buy the players we need. IMO we need Schneiderlin and a top quality CB.

    TBH even with our injured players fit we didn't impress.

    I agree with Jacks that it was a nobrainer that we were not going to trouble Southampton throwing crosses into the box to Sanchez, Carzorla and Rosicky. I guess even Campbell has more physical presence than those three yet Campbell is an other player Wenger gives no minutes to get used to the PL.

  • Wenger isn't going to be given the boot just yet, much to the annoyance of some. More likely supporters are seeking assurances of how Wenger thinks he is going to turn around their recent form. Some smart January buys would be a good start, with defensive reinforcements an absolute priority - and PLEASE not any more attacking midfielders.

    The boot....???

    by Jacks Nov 25, 2014 11:00

    Upon further reflection I don't think any of the above defensive signings will make all the difference. It would help but I think a bit of work on defending during training would do a lot more. Particularly avoiding the constant recurring error of having too many players in front of the ball exposing our (slow) defenders and leaving them isolated against counter breaks. Prevent the stuff Wenger constantly refers to as "naive" defending, or no defending. With Mertesacker being as slow as molasses you can not leave him in isolated situations.

  • On paper we are still in it against Monaco tonight. With the squad we have compared to Monaco we should have more than the 5% chance we are given.

    Having said this, Monaco has performed better then their squad would imply IMO and we tend to under perform in the big games. We saw 2 pleasant surprises this season, one against City and one against Man U.

    I think Paulista playing would help but as it stands I predict a draw tonight. I expect to fall pray again to the Monaco counter attack, a weakness we have had for years and I fear we will start rushing and play panic football way too early.

    Clearly an early Arsenal goal could spice this game up but chances are higher IMO that a first half Monaco goal would kill an already dead tie of completely.

    The silver lining is that being eliminated from the next round of CL football will save us 2 games our squad doesn't need and will allow us to focus on the PL 2 and 3 places (hopefully) and the FA cup.

    With Man U, Liverpool and probably City all out of Europe at least it would level the fixture burden a little amongst those teams fighting for the top 4 places.

    Direct qualification for next years CL would be a big bonus IMO and better than making it one more round in the CL.

    Dear ghosts any thoughts?

    the poor beggar of the boards....

    by TheButchNemesis Dec 5, 2014 23:16

    Surely, someone who owns a Bentley would easily be able to afford to buy their own nightclub in such a cheap country like Bali?

    Or is this nightclub just a front for human trafficking and exploiting underage girls into selling their meat for pennies to dirty old nonces from Australia?

    So, you're not just nuts deep in orangutans, there's children involved too!

    Seven weeks of pretending to be travelling, but I know that you were really on the Yahoo articles in your various different ID's getting yourself wound up, as per usual. - LMFAO!!!

    LMFAO - so you log into another one of your many ID's, start talking to yourself and then try and use Wiki as a way to justify your argument by highlighting the word GAME in capital letters, all within under an hour of my posting on here!

    Go on, check on Wiki page for BBC Sports Personality of the Year award winners.
