Once again we had a chance to close the gap and once again we blew it, yes I know the others did too but the team we played was there for the taking and the team we put out was woeful.
Cesc must be beside himself every time he sees the team sheet, so expect him to go back to Spain in the summer, I know I wouldn’t blame him. I wouldn’t mind so much if he at least played players in the position they can do best in, let me elaborate.
Diaby is a central midfielder, and maybe one to play off the strikers in a 4-5-1, he is NOT A WINGER.
Denilson is a central midfielder and possibly a defensive one too, but he is NOT A WINGER.
Song is not anything and shouldn’t be in this team, so PLEASE TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE IN HIM.
So that makes 4 central midfielders playing in the midfield with at least two playing out of position. A winger needs pace and their main function is to hit the flanks and whip in crosses, Diaby and Denilson can’t do that, so they always look poor, it’s not their fault, so PLEASE TELL ME WHY YOU DO THAT?
I won’t criticise Clichy because he gives far more than the odd error he commits, and because he has to defend so much more because SONG CAN’T, he will inevitably make a mistake that will cost us, it’s not his fault.
Sagna is a great full back and I think Gallas and Djourou look solid and in control.
Almunia should just go. Bendtner should just go. Ade is scoring for us and Robin is trying his nuts off so I won’t say anything against them.
So the players that are not good enough are Almunia and Song… the players out of postion are Denilson and Diaby, they should not play on the wings again.
We have Nasri, Vela, and Wilshere that can play out wide so maybe play them there occasionally, if they are injured, fair enough, don’t, if they aren’t then please TELL ME WHY YOU DON’T PLAY THEM THERE?
So what should we do? Well I know we’ll do nothing because ‘I BELIEVE IN THIS TEAM’ says he won’t. The French stubbornly refused to build tanks and aircraft during WW2 because they believed the Maginot line would hold, the Germans went round it and the French surrendered, stubbornness is not a trait to be admired, do something why you still can Mr Wenger, it’s our team as well.
Here’s an idea. Sell Bendtner, Song, Senderos, Rosicky and Diaby in the window, Gallas too if he wants out. Buy Green, Villa, Chiellini and Alonso, then and maybe then we can win the league and have a chance in the rest, Villa is not cup tied and nor is Green.
Stop being stubborn, even a blind spud can see this experiment has not worked.
Piers Morgan wrote an interesting article yesterday, he talks about the people that call themselves real fans, he says he has been to 645 games at 22 grounds and asks does that make him a real fan yet, my answer? Yes, resoundingly Piers.
All this talk about real fans is as boring as people that use the race card when I say that SONG IS USELESS. I am not a rascist, I just think Song is not good enough and certainly questions should be asked how we got him on the basis of exceptional talent.
We had 12 spare tickets for the Wigan game and only two were taken, so where were the real fans then?
Anyone who loves the Arsenal as much as Pedro and I and indeed Piers and all of you do, have the right to be called real fans, anyone who challenges that are the plastic ones.
You may well criticise your girlfriend, wife , boyfriend, husband or favourite sheep if you think they are doing something wrong, does that make you love them less? Of course it doesn’t, so Piers, I may not agree with your old paper ‘The Mirror’ supporting Tony Blair, but I agree with your views on Arsenal, it’s your right as a football fan.
So for all you AKB’s – a phrase coined here on Le-Grove.co.uk – don’t bother with your views, you go straight in the bin and I don’t even read them, same with the stalker blogs.
So onto the big one on Sunday, make the changes and we could close the gap, don’t and our season is over.
