Arsenal vs. Man Utd review Sagna shocker spoils game

Arsenal knew the huge importance of this game against Manchester United and may have been aware that Chelsea were beating Swansea in the earlier kick off. The players had to suffer the indignity of having to clap the former captain and turncoat Robin van Persie and his team mates on to the pitch. Wenger will have told them to use that feeling to their advantage in the game, and it could not have started much better.

The Arsenal fans behaved well through the guard of honour, but were given something to cheer about after just two minutes. Lukas Podolski was given the job of replacing Giroud in the middle, but it was Theo Walcott who opened the scoring after van Persie had given the ball away. The Dutchman’s contribution made it extra sweet for the Gunners.

Arsenal were fired up and were snapping into challenges and looking sharp on the ball. United nearly got back on level terms after 17 minutes but Jones put his header wide from van Persie’s cross. Whether the early goal had given him a boost or he was just hitting form again, but Walcott was playing much better than he had recently and Ramsey continued his recent good form and seemed to be everywhere.

Public enemy number one was the third United player to get booked after a bad tackle on Mertesacker before half an hour had gone, which was an indicator of their frustration. An indication of how fired up the Gunners were came when Walcott went head to head with Evans after being clipped by the defender. He was booked soon after for scything down Evra.

United nearly got a goal from nothing but Szczesny kept van Persie out with his face. It would have been really harsh on Arsenal, as United were lucky not to be further behind. That seemed to rattle Arsenal, though, and Sagna ruined all the good work by giving the ball away and then tripping van Persie for a penalty that the Dutchman scored. Yet another stupid defensive error that has been the story of the season. He may have got a slight touch on the ball but it was a reckless tackle and looked a penalty in real time.

Rosicky nearly gave us back the lead at the start of the second half as Arsenal started well again. United were also looking better, though, and were creating more chances. Podolski was having little effect and Sagna had just escaped a second yellow, but Wenger kept him on and replaced Rosicky with Wilshere when the Czech player had been doing well.

The German striker did finally make way with 20 minutes left, and it was Gervinho who came on and the Ivorian nearly made an instant impact. Arsenal needed all three points, which was why Wenger made the attacking change of Oxlade-Chamberlain for Ramsey. Gibbs had a good penalty claim turned down, which shows why United have not conceded a penalty all season. I think they have to use a blunt weapon for it to be given.

Cazorla had a good shot tipped round the post before Giggs came close from a breakaway. Despite some pressure, Arsenal could not produce a winner, so Sagna’s mistake was really costly. Hopefully it will not see us in the Europa League next season.

    Reading above, some comments point out that poldi was a shocker at cf. Are fans like you being serious? Well you should be dissapointed because Poldi was not a cf from the start and should have played on the wings just like I’d hope he did before the game. If you’d watched every Arsenal game and not read headlines or watch highlights as a fan you should have come to that realization. Poldi is class but he cannot sort himself out fast enough in the box against a team whose awareness and defense is one of the best. Simply put he’s a physical player but not an agile striker. We need to invest in the summer on this department. I thought Walcott should have played in the centre today with a either Rosicky or Cazorla behind him. Ox should have played on the right in place of Walcott and Jenkinson should have came on for Sagna

    My goodness, the flip flop of Poldi on this site is ridiculous. You’re judging him after one match? Podli linked up a bunch of times with our midfield in the first half, which is actually how we scored the first goal. Obviously he faded out in the 2nd half, but I think people’s expectations were just too high. Give him another game or two then judge is what I say.

    Sagna’s this, Sagna’s that, when he played as CB and had a good game everybody praised him. He is just a small piee of the puzzle. Arsenal is NOT challenging for title, not even close in the past few years, YET we have the highest ticket prices. Its called capitalism, take the money and then take more money, and take more money from people, disgusting it is to see the board ha no ambition. Its not sagnas fault, he is too old to play the whole march, hasnt got any concrete crosses, too slow etc. I could write that for most of the playera currently in the team, so it all comes down to the fact- our club lacks ambition, all the board care about is PROFIT. It hurts the most when you realize, we have lost a great football club with the best manager for the love of the money of some business man.

    But all in all i think were still favourites for top 4 just not favourites for 3rd. If chelsea drop points against man u or everton it means that the game in hand (totenham vs chelsea) either result would leave us in the top four. If chelsea manage to win against man u and everton it would mean we would need a chelsea win or a draw in the spurs vs chelsea game.

    Cant even score a second goal with all the attacks.
    As usual the defending error cost us.
    Did not beat any team above us this season.
    This proved RvP was right, look at his face at the end of the game. ‘I told you so’ kind of face.

    When a club is run with lies and by idiots, this is what we get. We will be like this forever and years to come fighting for top 4 money. This is based on our players that left and won trophies. Even the manager said it before ‘If you eat caviar every day it’s difficult to return to sausages’. And for the past eight years we are eating sausages and cannot complaint? F##K!!!

    Great game, minus the Sagna stinker. I think the writing is pretty much on the wall for him and it says he’s off to Ligue 1 in the summer. Great play by Koscielny, Rosicky, Mertesacker, Walcott. Arteta and Ramsey were really efficient too. I wish we played like this the whole season and play with this intensity to win the remaining three games and book a berth in next years Champs League.

    we needed that second goal… but we lack penetration, we don’t stretch defenses and we can never get into the box…

    part of the problem is our movement in the final third is very static, we don’t shift and move we stay still standing to the side of whatever play has the ball…

    also we are no good at crossing or whipping balls into dangerous areas

    @albanian-gunner the wilshere sub had no significant impact on the game our performance didnt get any better nor did it get any worse and the reason we almost concceded is because we were really going for the win and commiting men forward and also because we took off ramsey for the ox who is much less defense minded, nothing to do with wilshere.

    Good first half, one sloppy mistake but the boys including Sagna really played with heart in the first half.
    We are missing the killer instinct and the determination to come back from mistakes.

    I was expecting the team to come out like lions in the second half instead they came out resigned to a tie.

    Poldi was not good, but that doesn’t mean Giroud would have been better or that Poldi is not good in that position, it just means he had a bad game. How many bad games did Giroud have?

    We lost 2 points today because as always we don’t have defensive discipline. You don’t slide into a tackle in the box where the striker is nowhere near the goal and posing no danger. It’s almost always a penalty. Why hasn’t this been drilled out of the players in training? Because we don’t discipline our players.

    Podolski as a centre forward can work but he isn’t a target man so he won’t hold the ball up on his own too well. He will need support either from a second striker or a more supporting midfielder who will take the second centreback away from him. Very few strikers have the world class ability to escape two centre backs when played up front alone.

    We had one but unfortunately we also had a manager with such arrogance and a lack of ambition he left the club.

    Trying to figure out what result is best for Arsenal in Chelsea/spurs match. I think it’s a Chelsea win, which should also finish tottenham off if we keep winning. Also better to have Chelsea in CL because regardless if they make it or not, they have money to amp their squad. If spuds miss out, they lose Bale, credibility, and money.

    It could have been worse!!!! We played a very poor united today and should be glad we came away with a point! The first 30 mins of that game is how the Arsenal of ok played, pressed high up the pitch, made tackles and showed a strong mentality to win the game! What we lack is quality and it’s obvious to see. Also we don’t have goal scoring midfielders which is important in a top side, if the likes of Ramsey, Jack, Arteta had goals in them we would be more of a challenge our goals come from the same sources all the time! Ramsey had a good game but when he’s in certain positions I can’t help wishing he was someone else because you know nothing will come of it, the same goes for Arteta and Jack. Santi and Rosicky are the only ones you can see scoring in certain positions or at least hitting the target! I say Sagna needs to make way for Jenkinson and thats not just because of today’s performance! Praise to our CB who I thought had an excellent game!!! United was there for the taking and we still couldn’t do it!!!!!

    I agree that poldi should given a few games before judgement but however when I used to say Giroud did other things besides scoring it was not accepted. Ie: drawing defenders away with movement, creating space for others to capitalise, flick assists. Giroud does all that better than poldi. Unless we get a real clinical striker Giroud (when available)is the best option upfront and poldi should stay on the wings period.

    Sagna has been a wonderful servant to Arsenal Football Club but he is rapidly becoming more and more costly. We need an adequate replacement in the summer, it is important that Sagna at the peak of his powers is one of the best around so his shoes will be hard to fill. Perhaps leaving replacing him till the January transfer window to see how Jenkinson and Bellerin fair.

    With regards to top four, Arsenal still are ahead in terms of games coming up and current standing to finish third in my opinion. Here is how I make this prediction:

    Upcoming fixtures and predicted outcome:

    Arsenal

    QPR (A) – WIN
    Wigan (H) – WIN
    Newcastle (A) – WIN
    Total = 9 points

    Tottenham

    Southampton (H) – WIN
    Chelsea (A) – LOSS
    Stoke (A)- DRAW
    Sunderland (H) – WIN
    Total = 7 points

    Chelsea

    Man Utd (A) – LOSS
    Tottenham (H) – WIN
    Aston Villa (A) – WIN
    Everton (H) – DRAW
    Total = 7 points

    Therefore, the final table will stand like this based on my prediction:
    P Pts
    3. Arsenal 38 73
    4. Chelsea 38 72
    5. Tottenham 38 69

Otherwise, AW should stop joking and get us a clinical finisher 2 make use of the chances santi is working hard 2 create.

    Sagna has without a doubt been out worst player all season. Jenkinson has made good when he’s played so I don’t understand why he isn’t preferred?! Sagna is a centre back at best these days. more of a backup player.

    I am not the only one wondering why it has taken all season to play with some drive and press the opposition. It is not as if we are good enough to beat teams playing slow motion football, that is why we go 1-0 behind so often. If our players are not fit and strong enough to play with energy for 90 minutes, then buy some who are.

    Ramsey gave 110% – great pity he is then too tired to shoot and score a few.

    Bunch of naive twats judging Podolski after one performance as CF. The guy hasn’t even had regular starts this season, nevermind being played CF. I can guarantee that if Podolski were given all the opportunities Giroud had, he would have bagged a hell of a lot more than that clumsy frenchman. Both Walcott and Cazorla have more goals than Giroud. What does that tell you about him? f*cken useless. And don’t give me this sh*t about how it’s his first season here. It is Cazorla’s first season too and he is not even a striker!

    Sagna should be done for this season. He wants to leave. Jenks should be allowed to play

    Giroud gets the best chances in most games and misses them. Podolski didn’t get more than 1 chance in this game, maybe its due to him droppoing of the Cf position. Podolski’s shots on target to goals ratio is very good way better than Girouds. The first half we played well but there was no cutting edge for the dominance.

    What pitiful fans, sagna may have saved two goals today, the tackle on jones in the box was brilliant, and he did get a piece of the ball on van pussy,, but to turn on a warrior of arsenal! Blame a whole match on one player? Shame on you! We did not score after 1:44″, I saw many mistakes by players I will not call out, I saw nothing from players everyone wants to play, I saw players come on and do nothing but give up balls, Sagna made a bad pass, and tried to make up for it w a tackle to save a goal, we tied Man Utd, we outplayed Man Utd, they know it, we know it, lets move on, he is more work to do….

    So sad to see a tie today. We owned that game from start to finish save for maybe 3 counter attacking plays from Manure. The penalty was completely Sagnas fault. He gave the ball away cheaply and then needlessly chopped down the little grey haired Dutch boy.

    I honestly would rather Jenkinson were in. He’s our best crosser ans Sagna, much like TV5 has turned into a liability.

    And people blame Giroud for a lack of goals when our players don’t know how to put a cross in..

    lets hope chelsea win against spurs….because we will be 2 pts ahead spurs so there will be a bigger margin of error….we could afford then to drop 2 pts and still be in the top 4 even if spurs win all 3 matches but lose to chelsea….coz the goal difference is an advantage for us

    i don’t understand wenger whn some players he gives no time such as arshavin, jenkinson, vermallen and yet others like ramsey sagna and gervinho he has infinite patience. Should have taken sagna off for jenkinson towards end united were targeting him. and why take off rosicky? he was amaking our midfield work. wiltshire and cazorla don’t!

    Sagna performance has been bad now and previous games. Should have played Jenkison.

    Sagna should go out early this seasons. His lack of speed can’t deal to the BPL strikers anymore. And his ability to cross, ghoz, is owfull. How often we saw him overlap? To many. No wonder it’s all came for nothing. Somebody please tell me why Arsene rather choose him than Jenkinson? The kid is quicker and stronger. Anyway, we need a new RB as good as Monreal in other side of the pitch. Somebody who can make his overlap worth by produces accurate crossings and can return quickly for defense.
