4-5-1 is boring, it doesn’t work (unless we’re playing Milan away), we have no shots and we rarely win doing it, so why does he persist?
Adebayor is like a little boy lost up front and the only time we look like a force is when we revert to 4-4-2 with Bendtner.
In fact, I think we are better with Bendtner than we are with Ade, Ade is fast taking the latter day Henry role, losing the ball, not making the killer pass at the right time and blaming everyone else.
Last night it was obvious what to do from the start, Portsmouth didn’t have to worry as we were never likely to score, Rosicky and Eboue are average at best at opening up defences and Pompey sat back because they knew what Arsenal would do, as did Newcastle, Middlesbrough and almost Tottenham.
We’re used to great football, so it seems trite to complain, but come on Arsene, don’t throw away all the good work when the title is in sight because you’re being stubborn.
We know it doesn’t work, other teams know it doesn’t work and so my leader, do you.
Eboue can cross all day, but if there’s no one on the end of them, why bother?
If RVP is going to be a crock, fine, keep him for a rainy day but go and buy a goal scorer, like Anelka.
We have a chance to put it right against Everton, but 4-5-1 won’t do it, they’ll sit back and pick us off.
Open your eyes boss, before it’s too late!!!
