Arsenal fans need to be patient with Danny Welbeck

Not the time to jump into conclusions on Welbeck by SE

Arsenal’s opening champions league fixture could have been a lot different had their 16 million pound signing on the Transfer Deadline day, Danny Welbeck, been a bit clinical in front of goal and tucked away the chances that came his way. Danny’s detractors and skeptics would be having a feast of their ow, after seeing the Englishman fail to bury clear cut chances in his first two games for Arsenal but, logically, this is not the time to jump into conclusions whether Welbeck is the striker pertinent to Arsenal’s scheme of things. Read on.

What could have Arsenal done differently against Dortmund?

Arsenal played Dortmund away on Matchday 1 of this season’s Champions League, looking to pick up a point or three, after drawing three successive games in the Premier League. The Gunners, however, struggled to live up to the high pressing and high tempo game plan from their German opponents and, had it not been for some profligacy in front of goal from Klopp’s frontline and midfielders, Arsenal were looking at a much bigger margin of defeat. In hindsight, what could have Wenger’s wizards done differently?

It’s time for Wenger to leave Arsenal

Arsene has to change or go, time’s up. by KM

After another terrible Arsenal performance at Dortmund, how long before Wenger is taken to account for his mistakes? Are the AKB’s still happy with him ? Arsenal were miles behind the Germans. You could just see what a young manager with some tactical plans does to him.

Wenger is soft and weak. He is happy with being humiliated every season. Mikhitaryan could’ve scored 3 himself, and if he opted to assist, he would’ve gotten 3 assists and it would’ve been 5:0. Worst of all, it would’ve been a deserved result.

Arsenal Debate- Sell Ozil and buy Carvalho?

I believe its high time Arsenal start playing and more importantly look to start thinking to play like Arsenal of the old. Whats stopping us from doing that! Well too many cooks spoil the Broth. Too many playmakers playing the No. 10. This needs to be stopped.

The key area should be acquiring a beast of a Defensive Midfielder who can defend the back 4 and more importantly should look imposing on the opposition.

Carvalho fits the bill like no other as he is young and can be easily molded into Arsenal’s style of play and sync with the rest of the team and importantly go on to serve the club for a long time.

Where does Wilshere ankle injury leave Arsenal?

The next two days could turn out to be the most important of the season for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger. A humbling and humiliating Champions League defeat by Borussia Dortmund on the back of a stuttering start to the Premier League season has left us teetering on the brink of disaster.

Morale and self belief among the players must be pretty low and Wenger also has a mounting injury crisis to deal with ahead of a must win away game with high flying Aston Villa, who beat Liverpool at Anfield last weekend, so now is when the manager needs to really earn his money.

Arsenal fans can REALLY start to worry after Aston Villa

It is still early days in the season for Arsenal, but unless the Gunners start to get into gear, like starting at Aston Villa this weekend, then the fans really can start to worry. If we don’t somehow produce a match winning performance at Villa Park then it will have been a truly awful start to the season.

Just one win grabbed in the last minute in the opening day against Crystal Palace will see Arsenal way off the pace and playing catch up already and we do not look like a team that is going to catch a cold at the moment. The fight and determination that we showed against Everton, Leicester and Man City was encouraging but we could have lost all three.

Arsenal attack options mean NO pressure for Welbeck

With Olivier Giroud being out of action for Arsenal for the next few months, the new boy Danny Welbeck should get plenty of chances and lots of time to settle in with his new club and team mates, and his new role playing down the middle.

But whereas some signings, especially strikers, are under pressure to get going quickly, Welbeck should be able to do it without feeling too much pressure. Some fans and pundits had a little go at the 23-year old for hitting the post in his debut Arsenal game against Man City, but that is harsh.

Ozil out of form? Arsenal fans should think about Ramsey

There was a time when the mention of Aaron Ramsey’s name alone could crash a plane; his form was that bad. He lost the support of many fans in whose opinion he was, in the words of Piers Morgan, “a complete and utter liability”. Ramsey wasn’t actually a bad player, he was one of the best upcoming widely known lads in football. Everything just went wrong for him after that injury.

Dortmund v Arsenal review – Gunners go missing AGAIN!!

Despite Arsenal going for an attacking and adventurous line up, we knew that Borussia Dortmund were going to come at us like a train and give us no time on the ball. So the early and correct call from the ref to book Mikhitaryan for diving rather than give a penalty was a massive relief.

But Dortmund kept the pressure on and we were struggling to get out of our half and they were getting chances and corners. You ned a cool head to cope with their tactics but there were not many on show for Arsenal. Another way is to make them worried about conceding and we did finally start to do that after about 20 minutes.

Official teams and Preview of Dortmund v Arsenal

It looks like Arsene Wenger has decided to try to get over the Arsenal defensive crisis while also taking advantage of the one being suffered by Jurgen Klopp and his Borussia Dortmund side, because he has picked a pretty attacking line-up, with the big news being that young Hector Bellerin get his first senior start in place of the injured Mathieu Debuchy.

It is not only that that points to the Gunners going for it either, because Kieran Gibbs comes in on the left and Mikel Arteta gets the nod ahead of the more defensive minded Mathieu Flamini. Wenger has also kept both Ramsey and Wilshere in the team and the under fire German record signing Mesut Ozil starts as well.

Arsenal need to get defensive tonight!

The Gunners face a daunting away clash against Borussia Dortmund on Matchday 1 of the 2014/15 Champions League campaign. Albeit an attractive fixture in the eyes of Football fanatics and supporters of both clubs, the repetitive nature of a ‘dubious’ group stage draw has meant that Arsenal have now been drawn alongside Borussia Dortmund for the third time in the last 4 seasons. But, going into Tuesday night’s game in the Westfalenstadion, Arsenal, as a team, need to get into Champions League mode if they are to make progress and go past the R-16, this season.
