Patrick Vieira: Legend | Gervinho is the new Theo | The madness of King Wenger!

by & filed under Uncategorized.

It really is tough to know how to take Arsene Wenger, it’s always around this time that the sense he was talking before we renewed our tickets goes out the window, instead, replaced by plenty of nonsense that deflects attention away from him signing the players he needs to make an impact.

Arsene Wenger came out all guns blazing with an amazing statement yesterday…

“I don’t think we are weak defensively”

Right, now as far as I can see, we’ve only ever conceded 43 goals in season once under Arsene Wenger. Last year was our joint worst defensive display under the Frenchman. In our Premiership history, we’ve only ever conceded more once and that was in 1995 when we conceded 49. In fairness, we did finish 12th, Chris Kiwomya was in the side and the Premiership consisted of 4 more games.

Last year, 43 goals conceded saw us finish in 4th place. If the season was 42 games, chances are, the form we were in would have seen us finish outside the top 4. We were shocking. Some how though, Wenger has managed to take solace in the fact that 23 of those goals were conceded from set pieces.

How, in the space of 6 months, does he take Arsenal from set piece disaster merchants, to kings of defence?

Deciphering the logic…

Well, the first thing I can imagine he’s thinking is that Thomas Vermaelen is back in the frame. The 5ft 11 Belgian is quite good in the air, though as we found out in his first season, he’s only good if he has a running jump. A ‘tremendous leap’ cannot occur from a standing position as we found out numerous times.

May I just refer Arsene Wenger to the small fact that we conceded 41 goals in a season when Thomas Vermaelen played nearly every game. I don’t have the statistics to hand, but my guess is that if we conceded less from set plays, we conceded more from open play. So basically, what I’m saying is that by bringing back Thomas Vermaelen, we’re not solving a problem. We’re merely jumbling up how we concede goals. Also remember that Thomas had the luxury of playing with an experienced Premiership veteran. Namely Silvestre. Oh, sorry, I meant Gallas.

So, if swapping personnel isn’t going to do it, what about more team preparation.

Well, that’s not going to happen is it? Pat Rice was forced to sign on for another year and as far as I can see, no changes have been made back room. Cesc did mention last year that Arsenal didn’t do much analysis into the opposition. Could this defensive problem be solved by forgetting about the individual and focusing on the additional 15-20% you can gain by knowing your enemy?

Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger are poles apart in managerial philosophy. Arsene Wenger is the extrovert rock star obsessed with creating a great show. He is the U2 of management, spreading beautiful football wherever he goes, sprinkling it with some profound comments and some politicised views. Wenger is Bono and Pat Rice is the Edge.

Jose on the other hand is the James Ford, the perfectionist in the back ground, doing the unspectacular boring stuff to produce the awards with many different bands.

Wenger needs to be more James Ford. He needs to start formulating dossier’s on the opposition players. He needs to work out where Bolton’s players are going to run from corners. He needs to tell Kieron Gibbs what to expect from his wing man. He needs to make sure someone is covering the back post. Accountability is key to great defending and if you get it right and create a unit you can take an average group of defenders and make them far more solid. You also know who to blame when something goes wrong. That’s difficult to do when no one really knows what they’re doing.

So the optimist in me tells me that’s what he’s thinking. The pessimist tells me if you’ve got a problem as outrageous as 23 goals from set pieces, your issues lie deeper than merely making sure everyone knows their role. Squillaci is arguably one of the worst signings of Wenger’s rein, he’s been systematically found out by good and bad teams, he’s part of a back 4 we know are injury prone and the manager is sticking by him?

Simple facts are as followed…

1) Wenger doesn’t like to be proved wrong on a player. It takes a minimum of 3 years for him to see the light. See Denilson, Eboue and Senderos for evidence of that.

2) Wenger doesn’t have an extensive list of players he will try for. He has a small list, if he misses out on those targets, that’s your lot. There are no surprises any more. This has been happening since he missed out on Baptista all those years ago. If Mata and Cahill fall through, I don’t see him going for more players. He’s already missed out on Friedel, Jones, Alvarez and Samba. As far as he’s concerned, the market is inflated, he’s had a go and his players have great mental spirit. Jeez people, did you not see what we did to the best Malaysia had to offer?

Ever wondered what Geoff is like to watch football with?

Poor bloke has just watched the Manchester United of Argentina go down! Things could always be worse eh?

Gervinho…

Wenger reckons Gervinho is the new Theo Walcott. Fantastic. Exactly what this team is looking for. Give Wenger his dues though, the Ivorian bagged the most assists in Ligue 1 last year and he can play anywhere. Seems to a be a requisite of an Arsenal player these days, you have to be a jack of all trades… and in cases, master of none… as poor old right winger Nik B has found out to his demise. Things are so bad, his father has started making up clubs that are in for him..

Paddy…

Patrick Vieira announced his retirement from the game of football yesterday. The man was a legend, one of the most inspirational players I’ve had the pleasure of watching. He also had one of the most legendary songs to cement his reputation in the hearts of Arsenal fans all over the world. His contribution is up there with the best, his superb goal against United when he turned it in Berkamp-esque was as memorable as the screamer he scored against Newcastle at Highbury. I even enjoyed all his completely outrageous red cards, none of which he deserved.

Fittingly his last contribution to the club was the penalty that won us our last trophy against United.

A moment captured on a crappy old Samsung when Geoff and I went to the game!

Good times! Probably the worst cup final I’ve ever had the pleasure of sitting through from a footballing perspective, but equally, one of the sweetest!

All I’ll say Paddy is don’t get too involved in the transfer of Samir Nasri to City… we don’t want any soured reputations now do we?

    @FPB: he’s already been raped, he just is in denial like Wenger. Mark my word.
    Btw that was your most elaborated post in a while, keep it up!

  2. willybilly

    @ Jay

    Wenger said at the end of this season;

    “We conceded very few goals from open play, most of them were from set pieces in a way you don’t want to concede goals.

    “It’s something that’s easy to correct. We need to improve the size of our squad. We need a bigger variety in the height of our players. We need to be more capable of fighting against some characteristics than we have been this season.”

    So Jay, can you find me any quote from the last 5 years from wenger that has suggested we will buy a CB as much as this one?!!

  3. Shooze

    And the killer one:

    23 – 16 teams conceded fewer goals from set pieces than Arsenal in the 2010-11 Premier League. Weak.

  4. FAT PONCE BRIGADE

    Lurch, myles is a cunt in a manc shirt wanking lyrical about fergie and shrek man……….despise the cunty bastard

  5. jay4741

    @willybilly

    just says to me that hes gonna address set piece issues in training with the existing CB’s he has.

  6. wenger on holiday

    WE will not spend.

    Its not part of a sustainable model to spend £7-10M on one player. Cant you understand this ?!

    You expect me to buy £10M players every year? Its not sustainable, we have to calculate the economies of scale from internal & external revenue streams, this is sapped by our wage bill on a quartely basis. We’re there fore left with sponsorship streams as a means of spending money, however we signed a shit deal back in 2007 which means we now only generate enough for a bag of kp nuts and tesco value lager.

    ITS NOT SUSTAINABLE. However we have a team full of players who have inttereswesteen quaalliteesss. And have a good selection of spirits. We will not spend

  7. FAT PONCE BRIGADE

    Myles palmer must be put down, as he is the lap dog for fergie and the enlish media…..the cunt

  8. jay4741

    @willybilly

    its all how you interpret his comments as i said going on his previous/past comments my personal opinion is he will not sign a CB

  9. wenger on holiday

    David Haye is being scouted, he has good fighting spirit, strong mentality, clear potential, and intereswesteen qualtees, most important of all hes a bottler

    we sign bottlers.

  10. Pedro

    I like Myles Palmer, he was much better when he wasn’t publishing those boring letters.

    Still, he’s not been a million miles off. Sometimes he attention seeks, but I love his style of writing.

  11. FAT PONCE BRIGADE

    WENGER ON HOLIDAY………can you please elaborate on the selection of spirits…….please…….

  12. willybilly

    @ Jay

    Wenger said;

    “We need to improve the size of our squad. We need a bigger variety in the height of our players.”

    How can that translate to you as “we will stick with what we have got and work on it in training?!?”

  13. Pierre

    I agree its frightening but the quotes lead me to believe we will try and adress the set piece issues by our training and not by adding to the squad.

  14. Pierre

    isnt Jenkinson 6’2″ thats addressing height isn’t it? whenever we give away a free kick in a dangerous position, we can sub Junkinson on 🙂

  15. FAT PONCE BRIGADE

    So do i……yup……so do i pedro……i say he is pro arsenal all the way….and he hates those evil mancs with a passion……ohh myles

  16. wenger on holiday

    Fat Ponce – I have a soft spot for Cacacha the native brazillian rum, Denilson has this spirit in abandundance, this is why i brought him on the asia tour, and why i refuse to sell him, i didnt turn down a £7m bid from Celta Vigo for nothing, additionally you may remember i was desperate to bring Julio Baptista to Arsenal, this was not for his “Beastley” attributes on the pitch, more so that his father owns the label for Cacacha, in return for for a lifetime supply i allowed him to skip training and feast on maccy’d’s

  17. FAT PONCE BRIGADE

    Cesc’s silence is defening…………he’s such a bottler…our cesc…and a sulker of the highest order….put in a transfer request you sissy…

  18. Kapslock

    The only reason we concede less goals from open play then other teams is because we usually have somewhere between 60-70% possession depending on the opposition. However, a lot of this possession is not used to its strength but instead tippy tappied the shit out of in the middle of the park, whilst everyone goes to sleep. Thanks

  19. willybilly

    Ivory if you think that copy and pasting you wrote me was a raping then you are mistaken my friend,

    I notice you didn’t respond to my reply any way, hmmmm?

  20. IvoryGoonz

    @WillyBilly: how about 2008 for example…. He’s been “trying to sign” Cahill and Mertesacker since then…
    That should refresh your memory:

  21. tomb

    Watching some of the vids of PV he ecapsulates everything this current team have not got:
    Fight,Passion,An edge,leadership.Winning metality.

  22. Kapslock

    Wenger has in effect already increased the height of his players by drafting in Jenkinson and Traore, both of whom are 6ft +.

    We are not buying a CB unless we sell one. Wenger would never have 5 CB’s at the club.

  23. wenger on holiday

    May i please exmplain.

    As i have said the spirit of the player is very important, Joel is from costa rica, now i have heard of thier spirits and parties, however never tried it, at the expense of the board i now have the chance to purchase joel, along with all his spirits to try,

    apologies if costa rican rum isnt your thing

  24. PragmatistGOONER

    Frimpong will win us the game at OT if he plays..You except Song to win the match..He will surely jog…I want Frimpong in that match…

  25. FAT PONCE BRIGADE

    Willy, your fighting a losing battle mate……..these guys are rabid today……back off….save it for tomorrow’s more positive vibe…

  26. wenger on holiday

    Fat Ponce –

    Cesc never brought great spirit to the table, i have had to instill this in him, quite literally. However ramsey being a solid spine of welsh whiskey with him for me to drink, the more i have the better the team appears, that is why i like his spirits

  27. IvoryGoonz

    @WillyBilly: he said exactly the same few times in the past.
    His best joke on height was already in 2008: “our centre backs are not very tall, I don’t know what we can do”.

  28. FAT PONCE BRIGADE

    Prag, at old trafford we will need all the physicality we can use………a fit frimpong over song any day of the week……..and we will need ryo aswell as he can trackback all day long…………simple tactics eh PRAGMATIST…..

  29. Pierre

    this is a quote from Wenger off Arsenal.com given in January. Does anybody after reqading this still think we will sign a new CB?

    “”We’ve looked and we’ve not found any reasonable solutions. We’re in a situation where we’re happy with the performances of Squillaci, Djourou, Koscielny and we believe in the quality of Vermaelen.

    “If we buy another one, first, we have to buy him for four years and then we have to pay him for four years. We will have five centre backs.

    “People say always: ‘you must buy, buy, buy.’ But you must pay them as well. You want to sign a player for four years, all the others are on long contracts and then suddenly you have five and then Song is six.

    “What do six centre backs do? Watch the games in the stands because they don’t play.”

  30. PragmatistGOONER

    Wenger will again show faith in this choking CB’s and we will again choke at the end of season….

    P.S. –Wenger will speak BS if we beat Liverpool and ManUre..

  31. wenger on holiday

    Guys i have tried.

    Did you not see merson saying we used to inject him? Instead of purchasing players for £10M which is financially a crime, we have opted for the sustainable model, to inject our players with cheap growth hormones to make them taller, it has worked with Schezny we are now trialing with Theo walcott

  32. willybilly

    @ Ivory

    YOu are my favourite person to banter with,

    but the first article actually stated that it was based on speculation, there was no quotes and nothing relevant to our debate.

    The second article, has Wenger stating we have a height problem and that he was going to use JD, which he did, where is the lie there?

    And the 3rd one just states what we already know,that we were looking in jan, there is no meaningful quote to back up peoples claims that Wenger has lied about this loads of times before, please I may be blind but where is the evidence in what you just showed me??

  33. Yandi

    Kapslock.
    Spot On! Wenger’s been preparing us for transfer non-activity with subtle hints for more than a week now. Our transfer business is done and dusted and has been for some time. We’re back to chasing more teenagers again though.

    First quote: “HOPING for One or Two more players”
    Yesterday: “The team’s not defensively weak”
    A few hours ago : “IF WE NEED TO SPEND, we’ll do it”

    You know what’s going to follow…
    “Song can fill in at centreback”,”Internal solutions”, “Not finding players better than what we have”

  34. G STAR

    The problem with signing someone like SAMBA is that even if we stop conceding during set pieces, we are more likely to concede in open play due to the high line we play.

    PS

    THE REAL PROBLEM IS FINDING A FAST, ENERGETIC DMF, to replace ALEX SONG, personally I reckon WENGER SHOULD LOOK AT LASSANA DIARRA or try and sign FLAMINI back.

    PS

    TIARNAN is a CUNT, he likes shagging PIGS

    I have written for press conference script already win/lose.

    Win: I have faith in the youth i told you if we sign we will kill the youth, but today the youth showed they have interewesteen qualitees and good selection of spirits.
    Lose: We are in a league with financial criminals we opetate to a sustainable model, these players are young, they will learn i have confidence in thier interestingg qualitiess and great spirits

  37. PragmatistGOONER

    FAT PONCE BRIGADE :
    I know the simple tactics…But Wenger?? He will play the chokers as usual..And to win convincingly at OT he must play Gervinho, and Frimpong…I don’t see Cahill as an Arsenal player…So Vermaelen and that Kozzer in the middle…Nah I want Djourou with Vermaelen..

  38. tiarnan

    In that first article, the following was the actual sentence to NOTICE:
    “If I remember correctly, Wenger did talk about Arsenal needing something on the defensive side to take care of the high balls, something that our first choice central defensive pairing is distinctly incapable of.”

    Wenger knew that Vermaelen will not come back until the end of April still he didn’t buy or even loan a CB…He went on saying Vermaelne will be back in mid February but said like a mule in March that he knew he will not recover until the end of April…Typical Wenger!!!

    he’s guaranteed at least another 12m quid out of us for the length of his contract. he wont be breaking it and theres no way on earth our board have the balls to sack him.

  52. Yandi

    Pierre

    What’s Wenger’s fucking business in how long and whether we pay them or not!? Have you ever heard Mourinho going on about how he can’t sign another defender because he has to pay Sergio Ramos and Pepe!? Does he actually understand his role at the club? Why’s he always going on and on about the fucking finances of the club? He’s so fucking obsessed. So a club like Arsenal wont’t sign an adequate defender because the others (regardless of how shit they are) are on long contracts and we have to pay them? Where’s the fucking logic in that!? Why doesn’t he fucking sell them then!? Unbelievable.

  53. Josip Skoblar

    @G Star: on the basis of constant blatant insulting, and not participating in any constructive way to this blog, I dub thee “Tool”

  58. (bernard) bade the gooner

    it was the other day when i pondered is the old arsene is reverting, or is it just another day dream, plain statements with no intention to implement?

    thank you arsene for not making me think too much about it, now i’m sure the later one of those choices holds the truth

    it is embarrassing to see, yet again, those stupid arsene lies. well, if we’re not weak defensively, how come you said we were, just less than two months back? mmmm it is obvious arsene is lying, the only question is whether he was lying then or is he lying now?

    well, he is lying now, i reckon. he will stall again, we are going to lose on nasri….. we are expected to keep a miserable cesc, to play in injury prone unexperienced gibbs on Lb, to have squirll as an adequate fourth cb, to have song as our leading dm…..

    well well well, haven’t we been there before?

    again, arsene will make you all feel grateful making the europa league ….. i hope you’ll enjoy the feeling of his urine …..

    where are you? all those “true” fans stating the “wait and see” brigade about the surprising arsene…. i thought he was coming back to his old stance, but that bitching malaysian heat turned him back again…… mmm not lucky!

    ok, so to sum it up, nothing changes and nothing will, untill the blind deluded is sacked

    SACK ARSENE!

    @ Ivory

    That is the first time I read what you wrote, although it was @ 4 in the morning, can’t really blame me for missing that one.

    You have lost the plot my friend, picking on my choice of words like some sort of obsessive mentalist.

    this was what I posted the DAY AFTER your wall of other peoples words,

    You are the one who is deluded, not me.

    I have told you already that if i miss some points, its because im having a convo with like 5 or 6 people, not because I lie like you think. You are the one who sounds like a vigilante, and also you clearly don’t address points that don’t suit suit your agenda , like my one about me not being able to keep up when loads of people are chipping in with opinions, you continually accuse me of deliberate missing of points, but you do exactely the same my friend.

    And yes we will let the readers judge for themselves.

    You didn’t argue, you hid behind a mountain of copy and paste, and so its always going to look more impressive, but when you actually read it , you could have condensed what you wrote into one eighth of what you did, and my point was, that all you were actually doing was continuing our debate

    . Why could you not do it in a way that doesn’t look like you’ve just rewritten war and peace.?

    When i first saw your wall of text , I was worried , and when I read it , I thought “sly old dog” , you’ve made it look like you’ve written a masterpiece, but all you’ve have done is repeat yourself, and continue our debate.

    yes I would love people to judge who “won”, if they can actually be arsed to rifle through the endless amounts of “filler” in your monologue, without resorting to booze.

    Also,if you think i’m aggressive, then I really question how often you come on these blogs, I said it gets feisty, but I don’t swear and i’m not racist, and believe a lot of both happens on these kind of blogs, so really you have chosen the wrong person to crusade against.

    When I was banned loads of people pestered pedro and geoff untiI was allowed back in, so I can’t be that hated can I? Put that in your ivory pipe and puff.

    (ps, I said we should have stopped this, but you kept on accusing me of lying!!!! Ha!!! whatever i am , I’m not a liar, I take exception to that)

    Now I will reply to your 4 in the morning post, see you in a bit

    The only reason we concede less goals from open play then other teams is because we usually have somewhere between 60-70% possession depending on the opposition. However, a lot of this possession is not used to its strength but instead tippy tappied the shit out of in the middle of the park, whilst everyone goes to sleep. Thanks
    ________________________________________

    Exactly.

    And the reason we concede so much from set pieces is because EVERYONE knows that is our weakness.

    Yes Mr wenger…our WEAKNESS!

    Why attack in open play when all you need is a corner!

    G Star: which part do you actually not understand? Go on Untold, A chicky left fascist, or whatever.

    1) If you don’t agree with another blogger, say so but don’t swear at him AND don’t accuse him of supporting someone else.
    still can’t make a distinction between a AND a OR and a NOR Smarty?

    I repeated the other points for other people, just in case they actually had forgotten.

  72. IvoryGoonz

    “When I was banned loads of people pestered pedro and geoff untiI was allowed back in, so I can’t be that hated can I? Put that in your ivory pipe and puff.”

    Fat Ponce,

    As you appear to already know, Pat has been up to some mischief, unfortunatly he has movement problems, so finds running and taking training sessions very hard, as i dont particpate and just stand there looking in like a vuyeur, our training sessions are non existant, perhaps why we concede many from corners.

    He also has a well known sight issue, the truth is if someone fouled a player on the field, he didnt actualyl saee it, this led him to get in a messy situation in asia, mis reading a strippers for a sushi store, when the staff got touchy feely, he assumed they were just excited to see someone as famous as pat rice so he obliged by signing thier t shirts and giving them a small tip in hope for sushi…well he certainly got some prawns, they proceeded to take his clothes off, it all got messy, but he showed some interesting qualitees that evening

    and I’ll copy and paste the following twice, just in case you actually didnt read it:

    and that’s been sitting there for 2 days.
    Ok, I give you one authorised Wenger answer “I didn’t see it”

    you’re such an asshole,

  83. willybilly

    @ Ivory If you are going to keep reposting your responses so they come after mine, then I will do the same. Sorry peeps, just trying to prove a point.

    That is the first time I read what you wrote, although it was @ 4 in the morning, can’t really blame me for missing that one.

    You have lost the plot my friend, picking on my choice of words like some sort of obsessive mentalist.

    this was what I posted the DAY AFTER your wall of other peoples words,

    You are the one who is deluded, not me.

    I have told you already that if i miss some points, its because im having a convo with like 5 or 6 people, not because I lie like you think. You are the one who sounds like a vigilante, and also you clearly don’t address points that don’t suit suit your agenda , like my one about me not being able to keep up when loads of people are chipping in with opinions, you continually accuse me of deliberate missing of points, but you do exactely the same my friend.

    And yes we will let the readers judge for themselves.

    You didn’t argue, you hid behind a mountain of copy and paste, and so its always going to look more impressive, but when you actually read it , you could have condensed what you wrote into one eighth of what you did, and my point was, that all you were actually doing was continuing our debate

    . Why could you not do it in a way that doesn’t look like you’ve just rewritten war and peace.?

    When i first saw your wall of text , I was worried , and when I read it , I thought “sly old dog” , you’ve made it look like you’ve written a masterpiece, but all you’ve have done is repeat yourself, and continue our debate.

    for sure, you couldnt have checked if I answered back anything the following day… but you say you did notice it.
    You just assumed. Wrong. And you don’t even have the slightest integrity to accept to say you are.
    I could go to yesterday and before yesterday’s posts from Pedro, where I actually adressed to you and directed you to it … you just ignored it.
    You notice so well I wonder if you have same optician as Wenger

    Im sorry Billy, but im not having any of it anymore, you just keep doing a Wenger, and no, I wont read whatever answer you have.
    guys/ladies, have a nice afternoon, im off for a good paintball …

    Patricia Tiarnan, you waste enough screen space with your pointless drivel now you want to waste it with these Disney videos! If Disney makes you forget about the child abuse you suffered than good for you.

    Why don’t you get back to writing 2nd rate articles for 3rd rate blogs.You can then go back to sitting in a dark room furiously hitting F5 with your hand on your knob hoping someone responds 😀

    haha you truly are a sad little man/shemale/prostitute/talking terd 😉
