Now this is an interesting question, and will probably spark a bit of debate as I have often heard on JustArsenal that we have usually lacked a player that can grab the others and galvanize them into action, especially when the Gunners heads fall after going behind.
After just one point from their last two League games, Arsenal really have to get back on track against Norwich City on Sunday just like they did in the Champions League this midweek. For a change our players will have had five days to prepare and, for a change Arsene Wenger will actually have to make some selection decisions.
Most of the media sites, including the BBC, are reporting this morning that the two Arsenal players that got injured on Tuesday, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, will both be out for at least the next three games. So now Arsene Wenger has to try and reshape the first XI starting with this weekend’s game against Swansea, then for the massive game away at Bayern Munich, and the North London derby before the international break.
There has been one interesting footnote to Arsenal’s win over Watford on Saturday that has not really been discussed by the JustArsenal readers, which is the fact that the 21 year-old Matt Macey was named as the substitute keeper ahead of David Ospina, apparently because the Colombian Number One suffered a “sore shoulder” on international duty.
Let’s all just support Arsenal shall we? by Sam P
Every time Arsenal lose a game, the so-called AOB’s come out to play, insulting other Gooners and disrespecting the greatest manager in Arsenal’s history, despite the success he has brought to us over his 19 years at the club. When we win they suddenly become Arsenal fans again and praise the team profusely, but with the proviso that says that the Gunners should play like this every single week and win every single game convincingly.
