IVAN THE JANUARY GREAT

by .

Well hello there my dears – are you over the Spurs result?

I am. Kind of. Am I really? Maybe not.

I’m putting my Perspective FC glasses on and focused on Spurs fans prancing around like they just nipped us to the title after a fairly standard derby day draw. The levels are not the same.

We also have to be better about the catastrophization after every result. Two weeks ago Eddie was keeping Jesus out the side – now he’s not good enough for League 2. If you were buckled in for the season expecting us to win every single game, you’ll be having a thoroughly miserable time. If you think it’s easy catching City, then again, you’ll be disappointed because they are still really f*cking good.

There are some jobs that need to be done over the next three months.

1.New players need to settle

The start to the season has felt unsettled because we’re moving to a new way of playing – Arteta wants to be formationally fluid and he wants to be able to rotate players in and out without missing a beat.

We are missing beats.

You only get better by practicing in a live environment and unfortunately, the instant success we want on the pitch isn’t a reality in football.

Pointing at Pep and what they’re doing at City is pointing at perfection – Arsenal is working towards the level they’re at, but we’re not there yet, and it is unrealistic to think we’re closing the gap this season.

Get angry at that notion, bang the table, but no one else in the league has a better idea at the moment. Even peak-Klopp only managed to wrestle one EPL trophy from Pep. You could ask for a new manager – but the chances someone else could take this group to a higher level are slim and there are plenty of Premier League examples of the-big-thing getting the move then quickly moving to the fraud bin of Premier League football. Even proven winners have to take jobs in other countries.

Our strategy is to improve as fast as we can and wait for the City blip – because it will come.

2.Chance creation

We’re not creating chances like we were last season and that needs to improve. Part of that can be attributed to the newness of the squad. We have a lot of new players trying to find their feet in key positions.

We’re settling a new number 6

We’re settling a new keeper

We’re settling a new left-sided 8

We’ve only just reintroduced our starting 9

I don’t doubt the ability of any of the players – so in the medium term we’ll be fine. We just have to give them time to work each other out.

3.Cut out the dumb

We have been doing dumb quite a bit this season. Our defending as a team is really good in general. But each mistake we make seems to get pounced on. There’s been no forgiveness in the system. Individual errors are running RIFE at Arsenal, particularly at home. We have to focus, find out if North London Forever or Win the dog need to go, then get to grips with clean sheets once again.

Individual errors are easier to solve than systemic problems with tactics (Emery’s system for example was never going to work), we’ll get on top if this problem soon.

4.Manage Player Fitness Better

We’ve been struggling with injuries since preseason. Arteta is a beast in training, he doesn’t believe in pain, and we’re suffering with leggy performances and soft tissue injuries. These issues usually kill us in the backend of the season, they’re hurting us at the start this season. If we want to be competitive, players have to be rotated, and they have to have their bodies respected.

Again, we are overflowing the problems because of the Spurs result. Most of these problems will get solved when the players learn to play with each other. But at least we’re clear-ish why they’re happening.

We have Brentford tomorrow – the only player worth talking about right now is Ivan Toney. The heat on his signature is ramping up because he’ll likely be leaving Brentford in January.

This is our phase 5 striker moment… but it won’t cost us Haaland money.

Ivan Toney has had a bad year, he was caught gambling, he did wrong. We have to assume the time out is being used to get him corrected on gambling.

The next thing we have to hope is that he can come back to the form he left.

14 non-penalty goals put him 8th in the league last season. Everyone else above him played for a Big 6 club. 14 non-penalty goals is unreal for a team like Brentford. Add to that the 6 penalties he scored, because, you know, all goals count.

The player has what we lack – a bit of nasty in our forward line. He’s world-class in the press, he’s the only player I’ve seen occupy William Saliba, and he’s brilliant in front of goal. Not the mention how sophisticated his link play is when he’s playing as a loan striker.

Toney offers us something we don’t have in the final third from an aerial perspective as well – he might be sub 6 ft, but he’s one of the best players in the air. The thinking, I would assume, is in a system with players who can hit a pin from 60 yards, his aerial strength could be very, very useful.

Arsenal will have to compete for him against Chelsea – the only worry there is them jacking the price. Todd B won’t accept spending at least 450% more on a player than he should which could see the deal get pushed up like it did for Declan Rice.

I expect £60m will do the job – if we get him for that, we’ll have got a very fair deal for a player that could bang.

So what do we need to hope for? Brentford having a good run for the next 3 months. We have to see their forwards do well, we need to see them wracking up points, and we have to hope they don’t have any bad injuries. If all that comes together, I think we’ll be in for his signature.

Right – I’ll be back with more League Cup chat tomorrow. Get on our Brentford Before The Whistle right NOW. x

Great read. Always nice to read a report from ringside, especially an away game.

There is a shocking immaturity amongst the modern day Arsenal fanbase.

Any criticism of these over paid prima Donna’s and supporters are up in arms.

Kai Havertz is shit
Was shit at Chelsea
And was a shockingly shit signing.
All managers make them. Even Pep.

Nigel Tufnel

Don’t pretend I was only referencing the treatment of Havertz with the constant complaining here. It happens to Nketiah, even Ødegaard when he doesn’t have his best game. Some of these guys have earned a little patience, as all footballers are not always going to have a dominant performance every match. Habesha had a very fair review of what Havertz has been doing poorly, but also what he’s done well… I agree with him. I just think a manager uses the good parts of his game to build confidence, to hopefully raise the other parts that aren’t working right now.… Read more »

Do you really think Eddie Nketiah is going to be any better for arsenal than he is now? Hard working lad off the ball but not enough goals to justify how little he produces on the ball
Even auba didn’t justify his lack of footballing ability for us and he was a prolific goal scorer
Tell me what Eddie does that means he should be a starting striker for arsenal fc in 2023

Arsenal fans complaining about Chelsea fans Havertz banter is hilarious.
Havertz could be sold next window for 30m, while Chelsea are looking a mid table club for the foreseeable chock full of players on 8 year contracts the next manager might not fancy.

One goal won’t refute what I said here:

“Re Toney I would repeat myself that if you wanna dominate the football world in the next 3-5 years, you don’t spend 60m or whatever money to replace your backup striker. You spend the money to upgrade on your current starting striker. Super talent like Evan Ferguson achieves that. With Toney, we’d be proving that our goal is still lifting the tr4phy.”

What a great ten days of football. Hard to believe it was ten days ago we went to Everton and won, keeping a clean sheet in the process. What impressed me most about that performance was how we kept the Goodison Park crowd quiet and kept emotion out of the game. At some away grounds that’s important. That’s a sign of maturity and sticking to a plan. A clean sheet too. Three days later, Wednesday, we had our first Champions League game for six years. We produced our best performance of the season, another clean sheet and some scintillating play.… Read more »

Same,
I’m not wedded to Ferguson or anybody. It’s just that if we’re spending so much money, in the position we are now, we need players that will be able to bring us to the top of the mountain – PL and CL. Toney is not that guy.

Although if he’s fine with being a squad player in the place of Eddie and swap deal makes sense then I guess…

Samesong

Rap before City went on their mad PL title wins they won a cup. There’s other examples of other clubs doing the same. It has to all start from somewhere.

Tassos Davakis

You need a NEW manager , people wake up !!

TR7

Eddie decent as a back up striker but given that Jesus is himself not very prolific we probably need 2 main strikers.

Jesus and Toney will be very good.

I think it’s fair to say that Ferguson is potentially an elite level striker
Whoever buys him will certainly have to break the transfer record..

I think a Gabriel Saka Toney / Trossard Martinelli (Any combination) Gabriel and Toney can play in the same team

bring havoc to this league. I don’t expect Saka to play as many games. The guy is broken.

Worth pointing out that we blew the league without our back up striker starting a game in the title run in..

Pierre
Yeah
That’s because he was the back up striker and considered bench worthy while our best striker was only half fit

TR7

ESR just needs to up his fitness level, I see him displacing Odegaard from our starting line up.

His vertical and direct play is what Arsenal needs in the final third.

Odegaard drifts wide and is a different type of player – a player who keeps the ball well, recycles it a lot but not vertical and direct.

Rice-Partey-ESR midfield with Saka and Martinelli/Trosaard on the flanks will be stuff of dreams.

“Arsenal are one of the three best teams in the world.

“They are a class better than us.

“From now on I will continue to play from my own man. I learned that from Arsenal.”

I was dismissive of the League Cup this season as we are now back in CL, but if the draw opens up as it appears to be now (and with trophy hoggers City out) the further it goes I wouldn’t mind us playing a slightly stronger teams as we go along in order to win it.

All dependant on the draw/other fixtures/current injury situation of course.

Let’s collect as many trophies as we can with this group of players, success usually breeds further success

Ernest Reed

“ What do you guys make of this apology?.”

Pure damage control. Napoli has always controlled the message and situation. The fact that it reveals them to be insincere at most and blatantly racist at the least, judgement is reserved for the court of public opinion. As I mentioned yesterday, there remains an inherent racism in Italy and until FIFA and UEFA impose severe and punitive penalties for such behaviour, nothing will ever change.

Luteo Guenreira

The apology doesn’t matter. The reason something like that happens in the first place is because a bunch of people in the organization thought it wasn’t a big deal. I mean it’s shocking because it’s stupid not because it’s racist.

MG42

When some one is called a coconut in the Indian community it is interpreted as Black on the outside white on the inside and it has reference to the person’s behavior contrary to what is expected in the Indian community but behaving like the British Raj.

I didn’t mean the video wasn’t racist, I meant it’s not shocking that an Italian club thought a racist video wasn’t a big deal. The shocking part is the stupidity.

TheLegendaryDB10

What I find completely mad is that Napoli preferred to pander to their racist fan base than actually try and do something to eradicate it as they initially did with their video.

That apology is just sickening as they are attempting to swipe it all under the carpet under the guise of humor as if this was nothing.

It’s another attempt to try and normalise something that is definitely not normal and not right.

If I were Osihmen, I would try and leave ASAP. Who would want to work in such an environment?

Madhu

Kai can reverse the trend only by what he does on the field. He has to show more in the game and frankly I don’t see that. In the Brentford game he had a clear opening and wasted a touch to shift to his right. ESR meanwhile used his left to atleast make the GK save his shot. What is needed is for Kai to show more energy, invention and a desire to take the game by the scruff and make something happen. He is currently not doing anything.

If you think a club that’s been getting astronomical fees for average Joe’s like Cucurella, and just sold their phased-out DM for over 100 million will quote you less than 150mil for a teenage British striker then you’re having a laugh.

I doubt that UEFA or FIFA sanctions will make a jot difference to Italian football.

Italy is the country of “facism”. It is still inbred in their society. Football Supporters there are unlikely
to listen to the authorities even if sanctions are imposed.

Remember when Pierre was always defending ozils lack of assist towards the end of his career pointing out how he was the one responsible for the pre assist? Imagine thinking Newcastle with their 15 trippier set piece big chances means they are more creative than us or have more creative midfielders. It’s that basic for Pierre.

Our lack of chances come from our centre forward being as static as Worzel Gummidge in fact he had more movement than Lucky Eddie and he excelled in his field unlike Eddie who is shite and out of his depth.
