Mali – We Need 4 More Players
Well I’m not sure whats going on with Arsenal’s recent form. I watch the games, and I think theres a few of the present players not giving their all…They know who they are, and you know who they are.
We are way too slow going forward, and we play the ball square or back way too often, thus giving the opposition time to regroup and cover our next move. We are definitely lacking pace, and our build ups are too slow, and too predictable.
I think we need a new Goalkeeper, a new Defender, and two top class Strikers.
Arsene Wenger rewards failure. Players who consistently fail to win anything are given new deals over and over again, and others who have had enough of Arsene’s spin have left and won things at other clubs.
Mounting a serious title challenge with Olivier Giroud as your only real striking option is something only a stubborn and egotistical manager would do. Don’t disagree with recruiting a goalkeeper, defender and two strikers – will it happen though?
Don’t count on it.
Donald – No Plan B / Sell Vermaelen, Giroud, Nacho & Arteta
Arsenal have no plan B and plan A which doesnt even work. They have no width or pace in attack and they have no movement or finishing ability upfront in Giroud who is a dire footballer. So inevitably plan A will fail. Wenger is tactically naive and illdisciplined away from home against decent opposition.
We over commit all over the park and our fullbacks play infront of our forwards and centrbacks pushed up to half way our midfield nowhere and suddenly when we lose posssion its a free run on goal. Happens every game yet Wenger never changes.Wenger needs to resign and take Giroud with him along with Nacho and Verm and Arteta.
With a top class striker like Thierry Henry or Robin van Persie, we can play with one striker with 3 creative midfielders. But Olivier Giroud is nowhere near good enough to play that system.
Which begs the question why doesn’t Arsene change the system? Why not play with two up front or play a system where Giroud is not constantly isolated? We only have Plan A which against the weaker sides is okay but has consistently failed against the top teams.
I will be happy to see the back of Giroud. Arteta has been unfairly criticised in my opinion, he’s a decent midfielder with limited attributes but hasn’t been helped by Arsene’s system which has exposed him badly. He’s lined up alongside midfielders who have no interest in tracking back or defending as a team. And his best position is further up the pitch but he’s being asked to play a deeper role.
