Offensively.....Giroud is a big guy, but he is not a true targetman. He doesn't thrive on aerial balls. So what we have is a man who is too big to be mobile and play a false-9 type position, or even as an agile forward who can move wide and come deep and spin off to create space...and a guy who's size doesn't QUITE make him enough of a threat in the air

 

So he is essentially a square peg in a round whole with regards to the way the team plays

 

this bit in bold is the story of life @ arsenal .. square fukin pegs

Them autistic memes there 

That's not even how the meme goes

Also

 

WILSHERE

 

 

Ok. The guy is committed, but this is what happens.

 

Arteta will defend reasonably deep, look to position himself well and intercept the ball

 

Wilshere will press. Alone.

 

Wilshere presses, and opens up space inbetween the lines which is then exploited and Arteta gets overloaded

 

Diaby actually does a much better job next to Arteta due to his (beleive it or not) greater tactical understanding of the transitional phase of play

Shut up.

 

Yes Wenger has done a good job finishing top 4 with the teams he's had over recent years but its HIS team, he buys and picks these players year in year out and has no ambition to excel.

 

Fuck him, fuck the board.

 

If your management has no ambition & veto's your decisions on sales of your better playing staff then you too would see your ambition dry up.

 the team isn't even being coached properly

 

:!:

 

this is why when people talk about "nah if we had money" or "we should by this guy and that guy" im like :/

 

Better quality of players, better levels of preparation themselves, look at the amount of times the players themselves admit THEY don't turn up with the same focus.

 

Look at Sagna first half yesterday, then second half. Was like a bodyswap.

Wenger knows the players want trophies, he's not stupid. Everytime they are running down, his only hope is to win something or them get injured to keep them.

 

and before anyone says, sign players to keep them...

 

Without a benefactor we are struggling to reward OUR players going rate, and equally we are in no position to sign the players our rivals sign.

 

The only thing I think Wenger is know overlooking is signing Premier League proven players, who while maybe slightly gassed in valuation, might cost you less in wages & be ready to step up immediately and as Arsenal seem to value the whole deal package then it might be cheaper.

 

However Stuart Downing, Charlie Adam, Andy Carroll, etc... Make me think maybe he's right.

 

That said certain players come into the market & I wonder what Wenger is doing....

I don't know if its a case of others not stepping up, I think its more appeasing him for the sake of getting him to sign. Under normal circumstances in order it should be : Arteta, Cazorla and Podolski. Theo doesn't come into this, I just hope this pussyfooting around Theo's ambtions don't cost us in the long run.

i hear what you are saying but why not just make him see out his contract, still sign cazorla and have a much better chance at qualifying for the CL this year

Nothing to do with the contract, its about urgency, yesterday we got a cornr at the death, first to the ball, Walcott & he wasn't the nearest at all.

 

Its only after Walcott fails to clear the first man for the fucking tenth time that Wilshere & Cazorla say fuck this shit.

Selling RvP and not giving him a payrise & bonus, earned us our CL money already.

 

Same way doing the same with Nasri the year before did...

 

What are we missing here? If Man Utd had held out at the silly offers they was making at the start with Juve, then RvP would still be here, but once it hit CL entry money, he was gone as that argument no longer holds.

There's no structure or aim to our play anymore. I don't even know what type of team we are

No identity

New players making the same mistakes as Wenger teams from recent eras

Wenger and his routine subs around the 65th minute.

Wengers dead tactics.

Tired of Wenger's quotes, the same quotes we've been hearing every year. "we will only buy exceptional quality" "we will only buy if it improves what we have" mate our team is shit, we don't need exceptional quality to improve the crap we have now.

We play a system that requires wingers or wide forwards. Start respecting the wings please

A dynamic CM is so crucial to our play, why do we only have one and he only plays 5 games a season?

Wenger controlling the wage budget with his socialist model is a disaster.

Wenger the other day justifying the ticket prices, "it's so we can compete at the top" :/ you don't spend so what are you on about?

Hugging RVP at half time while united gave us our usual beating

There's so much more

Making him stay this year and having a better chance at top 4 >>> the money we got for him

Why would he have to give him a payrise if he weren't signing an extension

 

I don't doubt that at all. Questions mark would be raised by how effective he might have been after not getting his move, but alas we will never know.

 

What we do know is...

 

Arsenal made 28m Euros (£24m) from Champions League participation last season.

 

Rvp and Nasri was sold for yup you guessed it 24m... Well 22m in Rvp's case, we had to bonus the final 2m, for Wenger to concede.

 

Because if Wenger keeps him & wins something/looks like winning something, a deal would have had to been struck by Jauary ala Walcott right now...

I can't defend Wenger in everything he does, but what I know is, what made Wenger better than George Graham? RECRUITMENT.

 

The minute we held Wenger back in buying what we needed, at the same time selling what he had, and then what he built up, then Wenger lost his identity.

 

I've told man the summer we sold Nasri and Fabregas, stalled on Cazorla and Mata. R.I.P. Fully convinced it was a liquor and shotgun moment for him in his office.

 

Without Usmanov's money it is now impossible, well unless we start agan, and nobody wants that.

Wilshere & Cazorla give the ball away easily/get closed down quickly often.

 

and where our full backs are often ahead of them already by this point, smh.

 

Then having Arteta who is more of a shadower closing down than actually winning the majority of challenges we are very easily & quickly exposed by QUALITY. However something you have to consider a lot of the goals we concede are actual individual mistakes rather than just being undone.

 

Now the movement in front of Wilshere & Cazorla is dead and between the two its equally dead, which leads to them dwelling, not finding a pass, reluctant/not able to go past anyone, and too stubborn to play a percentages ball... Basically any scout that watches Arsenal, then briefs his team will know as long as you prepare properly do your jobs then it will all be too predictable as their consistency with the passing & moving to spring attacks is far from what it use to be...

 

So while we can talk about unbalanced, undrilled, unprepared, or Wenger hoping it just hasn't gelled, fact is the team ain't good enough in many aspects.

 

The reason I pick the problems I see with Wilshere & Cazorla isn't to dig them out btw, they are probably Arsenal's best two players, but the problem highlights how poor we are around them. As when our best two best players stop being effective, so are we. Infact I'll go as far as to say for us to win games atm, these two need to compete for MOTM.

If these three was doing this type of ball movement with consistency... Then the problem would severely reduce, the fact they seem to only have the confidence to play this way when we comfortable winning is a problem also...

If I could find the next part of this clip you'd see what I mean about our attackers... How can Sagna be more on his toes to get forward and move into space than our forwards.... As Cazorla's next pass is to Sagna...
