ARSENAL BREEZE PAST SEVILLA + NEW MIDFIELDER APPEARANCE

by .

Arsenal cruuuuuuuuuuised to an exceedingly simple win against a totally outclassed Sevilla FC. How can these young Arsenal men be acting out in the Champions League like they’re seasoned veterans?

We are not talking enough about how this rebooted Arsenal group of players are strangling sides like Homer Simpson on Bart before it was deemed uncool to strangle kids in cartoons last week.

Sevilla had one shot on target all game and that was their entire catalogue of attempts at our goal.

ONE SHOT.

This is the Champions League, those sorts of numbers shouldn’t be possible against quality sides known for European football. But look, this is a pattern. We might have lost against Newcastle at the weekend, but we had the richest side on the planet patting the floor trying to find scraps – they didn’t get a corner for an entire game.

This is a different Arsenal side defensively. We have more control, we have more physicality, we have players that feel more attuned to the type of football Mikel Arteta wants them to play.

William Saliba continues to look like the best centre-back in the world. He is a control master – he reads the game like a 30-year-old, but he has the superpowers of a prime VVD. He has all the tools you’d want in that position and he’s still a baby by centre-back standards.

Declan Rice is so good it’s getting boring writing about him – he is every inch a £105m. How many players that go for mega fees have their fans feeling like the deal represented value? Not many. The problem with going up against Declan is he’s everywhere. He’s not human, he’s a horror movie bad guy, you look over your shoulder, he’s not there, you turn back 2 seconds later and he’s savaging you. The only weakness in his game is you still feel there are levels to go… what’s going to happen when he starts shooting?

It was great to see both Bukayo and Martinelli have positive impacts on the game after being clogged up by the black and white deep block boys at the weekend. Martinelli was terrorising Sevilla all night long, constantly beating his man, and constantly getting into dangerous positions. Could the final ball be a little bit better with the cutbacks? Yeah. But he probably needs a striker to make those work more consistently. He still managed a glorious assist for Bukayo Saka who scored a very Bukayo goal.

Our OG Starboy also had a great game, he looked far more comfortable playing up against weaker fullbacks who let him run the game. The goal was great, so was the assist for Luther Van Tross. The injury wasn’t serious, according to Arteta, so let’s hope he’s in the starting 11 for the game this weekend.

There were some other notable performances.

Zinchenko, who has been training as a midfielder for parts of this week, showed up in the Jorginho role and did really well. The guy is an outrageous technician but he’s being outdefended this season. Maybe midfield as an 8 or a 6 could be the future for him? I certainly prefer him in advanced positions over Fabio Vieira.

David Raya kept a cleansheet.

Kai Havertz had a very good game again. Is he starting to find his feet? I think so. We’re also starting to learn what his game is about. I’m watching Granit Xhaka with more power and pace… and better at the one touch connective passing. Kai offers us a lot of hard work off the ball and eventually… he’s going to give us an edge in the opposition box with final passes and goals. He’s getting better, those that wrote him off, get ready to bow down to those that kept the faith.

Ok, that’s me done. Have urself a lovely day. Listen to the pod. See you later! x

Obesity is one of the biggest threats

With Nketiah out injured. I would like to like Trossard have a nice run of games. And not be dropped as soon as Eddie is fit again.

Markymark

Siddeeq – Empires always make use of foreign troops even single nations. The battle of the Boyne for example had troops from across Europe and this was common for most European wars. The fact is the British Empire covered approximately 25% of the globe surface and 20% of the population. At its height the 3 biggest ports in the world were London , Hong Kong , Liverpool. We can certainly take issue with empire building and what it’s meant for the countries that were impacted. But facts are facts it was there and built from a country minuscule in land… Read more »

I agree keep Trossard in but keep him away from corner taking duties. He should be coming onto the corner not taking them

Pierre

Raya’s handling has been impeccable from day one. His long kicking is very good . His one one on one decision making is very good as he doesn’t rush out or go to ground when he is facing the attacker. Examples recently are jackson/ chelsea when clean through ….gordon/newcastle when through in the left channel، and the sevilla player on Wednesday night who out muscled saliba in the 2nd half giving Raya a decision to make and thankfully he made the right decision and didn’t rush out making easier for the striker. All 3 times a goal was thwarted by… Read more »

Pierre- You seem to have overlooked Raya’s backward punch when unchallenged that nearly led to an OG when it was easy to catch in Seville?

Pierre

Considering the amount of players that were unavailable for Wednesday night I thought the performance was excellent، though it has to be said that sevilla look a very average side.. We are playing another side lacking in confidence on Saturday and I would expect a very similar team، with a very similar performance and a very similar result as I just can’t see Burnley causing us any problems and we will eventually grind them down as they will under the constant pressure. I do feel a little sorry for Eddie as the injury he has picked up has deprived him… Read more »

At the eisk of drawing is back to the Independent referee panel, it is grosteque to claim boas when their decisions don’t favor us and applaud them when decisions favor us. The pane is made up of three ex players randomly selected, a representative from the premier league and one from the referee’s organization Surely we can be gracious enough to accept their decisions as final considering the scoring of the decisions. Unanimous for the out of play call, the offside call and the handball call. The only close decision (3-2) was the two handed push. Be that as it… Read more »

‘Siddeeq – Empires always make use of foreign troops even single nations’

The reason i said Rich and Un idea of Nationalism is absurd.
Empire ( imperialism) is a topic for another day.

Bob N16

Pierre, wasn’t impeccable in the first 15 minutes of the City game and do you discount not getting to a cross as he didn’t ‘handle it’?

Pierre

Tikpo
I look forward to seeing every ball that goes near the byline for a throw in that looks out being scrutinised for the ball ” overhanging ” the line or checking if it is “conclusive” that it’s gone out of play.

Somehow I doubt this will happen.

As for the push not being conclusive، the VAR disallowed the Napoli goal on Wednesday for an identical push on the defender…obviously they thought it was conclusive and of course they came to the correct and honest decision to disallowed the goal

Markymark

Pierre – there’s been an error per game and it is costing us results. Even if his handling is genius ( ?!? ) his size and leaping capability remains suspect.

Bob N16

In this day and age, it is ridiculous that there is not categoric decisions when it comes to whether the ball is in or out. It will come but it’s frustrating now as ‘clear and obvious’ is a cover all for fudging a decision. VAR is, as it stands, a blight on the footballing experience, particularly watching in the stadium. Waiting for a decision that takes minutes as the technology is shit and the officials don’t want to make a mistake is painful at best. The lack of transparency, the ‘Northern Cabal’ and the paid trips to Saudi and UAE… Read more »

Pierre

Bob As I said his aggressive positioning at the near post can be perceived as a problem by those who are looking for reasons to doubt him، but on the flip side ، being aggressive at his near post has meant he has come for many crosses (and caught them) that fall short which in itself takes the pressure off the defence. Have a look at the United keeper and you will see a keeper who rarely leaves his line and when he does is indecisive.. Have a look at the tottenham keeper for the 3rd and 4th goals v… Read more »

Pierre – the mistakes aren’t minor. Cmon now if he gets the gig well done him but he’s dropped clangers.
Maddison injury is worse than feared. So here begins what i suspect will be the downward curve of Tottenham

Bob N16

Fair points Pierre but the overall question is, is Raya reliable enough? He clearly has strengths but I have watched him live at home games and I can’t be alone in thinking he has a mistake in him and he is not a reassuring presence, yet. He has an excellent back four in front of him as well as Rice who is an exceptional defensive midfielder(even if he has been asked to push forward too). He hasn’t had to save many! Arteta obviously feels he’s ‘a few percent better’ than Ramsdale but the tension and exposure Raya is under, as… Read more »

Maddison ankle injury ‘worse than expected’. What a shame!

GoonerDave

That elbow to Jorgi’s head would mean a red card for any Arsenal player. VAR reviewed it and said it’s allowed. And they can’t see if a ball crossed the line or not. And they forgot to draw lines but managed to make a judgement nonetheless. And they ruled a correct goal out for Pool V Spurs. The double yellow on Martinelli from pieface. Etc. I don’t know if it’s corruption or just unconscious bias. Either way, they can afford to pay refs a lot more and heavily reward refs with the fewest mistakes. That way, refs who are biased… Read more »

I’m holding off on Maddison’s injury because of the International break. Very possible he could conveniently be back when the Premier League resumes.

Like Tikpo said I think it’s pretty distasteful for Arsenal fans to continue crying about the Newcastle decision or use it as a benchmark for future purposes. Y’all will be the laughing stock when an inconclusive decision goes our way in the next match or 2. We have had some already go our way this season and will still have a lot till season end. Keep in mind that Haverts challenge was before all that ‘phantom goal’. 10 v 11 against Newcastle at SJP? Different contest.

I hope Arteta doesn’t apologise to anyone in light of the panel’s explanations and verdict anyways. At the time he did the interview he was right to do it because it seemed we may have been totally fucked. No need for apologies.

George Graham was an expert at developing an ‘us against everyone else’ mentality and despite a Scouse loving sports press and media his team eventually broke the Liverpool hegemony of the Football League, albeit briefly and until Man Utd jumped in to take Liverpool’s place. Arsene Wenger tried the same but eventually lost the ‘mind games’ to Ferguson and now it seems that Arteta, unintentionally I suspect, is doing the same as Graham. It’ll unite the dressing room even more-so and the supporters who follow the team to the matches despite the best efforts of the Sky swamp to discredit… Read more »

Our inability or refusal to sell Partey in the summer is, to be honest, very much inline with our trend of failing to spot the time to sell. Early Arteta got rid of the dross, Partey is not part of that – he should have been sold, especially with Saudi money going to considerably worse and lower profile footballers. That we’re now without him until January isn’t bad luck, it’s negligent and reflects pretty poorly on Arteta & Edu in my book. Without piling, we can probably review Jesus’ position in this respect, too. Likewise, Arteta forged a decent rep… Read more »

I was just looking at xG numbers, the geordies seem to have best balance between offence/defence for now, see how season progress.
——

– “Liverpool matches have seen the most xG created at either end of the pitch (40.28). Arsenal games have seen the least amount of chance creation (29.43)”

– Best defences so far this season (least xG conceded):
Man City – 7.62(xG)
Arsenal – 8.08(xG)
Newcastle – 11.12(xG)

– Best attacks so far this season (most xG created):
Newcastle – 23.66(xG)
Liverpool – 23.33(xG)
Aston Villa – 21.95(xG)

raptora

jwl,
One thing the xG taken from all the games and put together doesn’t tell is that there’ll always be a thrashing or two involved that will drastically dilute the credibility of such stat.

Im talking about say Newcastle vs Shef United over 5 xG, Chavs had over 4 xG vs Spuds, also it’s still early in the season to talk about it because some teams have had easier or harder games compared to others. Maybe at the halfway point of the season – last days of December.

Yeah, Partey is out until January and then goes to the AFCON so until February we can forget about him. Then again, we might be looking to offload him in January and there is a possibility that Partey has played his last Arsenal game. Not a big possibility but it is there. A lot of noise yesterday about Douglas Luiz, not an easy deal but apparently Arteta/Edu see him as the best midfielder they can buy. I’m sure they highly value his flexibility in that he can play as a 6 and as an 8. I see a similarity there… Read more »

FYI

Ask most people who broke the Enigma code and they’ll more than likely reply that it was the boffins and eggheads stationed in Bletchley Park headed by the legendary Alan Turing. However, were it not for the work of a team of Polish mathematicians, Turing and his team would have faced a far more daunting task. Overlooked for decades, this is the story of a team of mathematicians who raced to crack the Enigma machine as the storm clouds gathered over Europe.

If I was cheering hard for Willian, the worst acquisition in my opinion… it’s easy for me to support Raya, a keeper most of us admired even before he joined us.

Any way you present yourself as, you still act like an idiot no matter what.

Give Aaron a start and let’s catch another glimpse of the excellent punching he always does, I’ve missed all the punching as opposed to the catching of late, maybe he’ll punch one into the other goal.

While I largely agree with your assessment of VAR there are a few things that would be helpful in today’s game where millimeter decisions are being made.

Also some of the IFAB rules need some changes or interpreting revisions, no one knows anymore these days what is a handball.

Preference for me would be to have Aaron stay as a backup, because not sure if we’d be able to find a replacement of the same level in January. We’re not selling him on the cheap this winter transfer, and we’re not loaning him out without a suitable replacement lined up. Aaron is just going to have to eat it, that’s the fate of a professional athlete sometimes. If you think Arsenal are going to take a loss or put themselves in a more difficult roster situation for the sake of Aaron’s national team hopes, I think you’re dreaming.
