An Arsenal Fans Analysis – Who Does What in the Defensive roles?

“Who Does What” An overview of the Defensive roles by JA

Hey Arsenal fans. Hope y’all fine as we get ready for payback time against Liverpool. So “Who does what” will be a series explaining the roles of players on the field. I wrote this because I noticed that some people tend to fail to appreciate or understand a lot of good players, due to highly inaccurate ideas in their heads. So today we’re starting with the defence. A proper defence can be broken into three broad sections: Goalkeeping, Fullbacks and Centre-Backs. so let’s start with the goalkeeper role.

One good Arsenal win doesn’t change Wenger’s failings

One good win and suddenly there is Only One Arsene Wenger? Please….. by KM

Arsenal finally produced a performance typical of ourselves. We played with 2 rested strikers from midweek and it immediately payed off. We were dynamic and too much for Newcastle to handle. Onto the positives.

We had 3 rested strikers in Giroud, Welbeck and Sanches and we looked dynamic. Although the first two will never be the world class finishers we need they are team players. Giroud combines well and holds the ball up. He also gives us presence and a chance to win the first ball, something we don’t do a lot.

Arsenal to be firmly in Premier League Top 4 by New Year?

Arsenal have four more Premier League games to play before we see the visit of Hull in the FA cup, a re-run of that famous day at Wembley in May when the Gunners finally ended our long wait for another trophy. Really we should already be comfortably in the top four of the league table, but there is every chance that we will be after these four games.

For one thing, the last two of them are away to West Ham United and Southampton, two of the clubs that are currently above us. But they are both showing signs of slowing down and getting bloody noses from being so high up in the table.

Why Gervinho should BUTTON IT about Arsenal and Wenger!!

Let’s be honest Arsenal fans and admit that not many, if any, of us could have predicted that the former Arsenal striker Gervinho would have such an impact for his new club Roma in Serie A. We were more than glad to get rid of him last summer and not just because his hairdo was painful to look at, as the short video below showing some of his more memorable pieces of skill will remind you.

Wenger tells fans DON’T PANIC! as Arsenal head for 5 wins from 6!!!!

It was perfectly understandable for the Arsenal fans to be pretty far from okay last weekend after losing away to Stoke City yet again. It was not just the result that cheesed most Gooners off royally, it was the limp manner of our first half performance against the Potters. For me it evoked memories of those painful away days last season at Anfield, Stamford Bridge, Goodison Park and the Etihad.

But as unhappy as I was with Arsenal in that first 45 minutes, I was equally unhappy with the abuse that Arsene Wenger got at the train station afterwards. Whatever we think of how well he is doing at the club, Arsenal have always had more class than that and Wenger deserves so much more.

Wenger – Arsenal fans can’t sack me! I’m not elected…

Wenger is now alienating the Arsenal fans by JM

Arsene Wenger has done himself no favours with his latest outburst against the Arsenal fans who have been protesting about the results this season. He has made it clear that he thinks it is only a small minority of fans that are calling for him to be sacked, and even if there was a majority, they don’t have the power to remove him.

He was quoted in the Mirror as saying: “That is not my problem. My problem is to win football games. I am not a politician who has a poll every week to see if you support me. I am paid to win games. My sense is to focus on my job.

Spurs legend SLAMS Arsenal fans over Wenger abuse

The anger and frustration of all Arsenal fans has been bubbling ever since the Gunners failed to build on the opening day win over Crystal Palace. It has been a bit of a rollercoaster that’s for sure, with a few wins in a row to get us believing – and then a dismal performance or bad result to knock us down again.

So with some Arsenal fans getting the `Wenger out` campaign going again just months after the Frenchman signed a new three year contract with the club, there was always going to be a strong reaction to Arsenal losing to Stoke City on Saturday, even though a strong second half performance might have earned us at least a point if not for the harsh sending off of Calum Chambers.

AKB v AOB – Arsenal fans need to STOP fighting each other!

The fighting has to stop by Sam P

The war between AOBs and AKBs reached new levels after Arsenal’s defeat at Stoke City. First of all we had supporters (???) booing Arsene Wenger as he boarded the train for the trip back to London, and then we have actual fist-fights amongst our own fans on the journey home.

The Sun took to twitter and found some interesting tweets from Gooners like: “Fist fights between Arsenal fans after the game, absolute joke. Disgusting to see our own fans punching each other.”

How BIG decisions have piled UNFAIR pressure on Arsenal boss!

Wenger should not take so much blame from Arsenal fans by Sam P

I know that I am not the only Arsenal fan to still think that Arsene Wenger is the right manager to take the club forward and should be getting respect from the Arsenal fans rather than having to run a gauntlet of abuse as he gets on a train, but sometimes it feels like I am a lone voice in the wilderness.

Let me just point out a few things on our season so far to the knee jerk Wenger out brigade.

Arsenal star BACKS boss but SLAMS fans and WARNS Welbeck!

The next few weeks and the rest of the season could be very telling as to how Arsenal are going to line up and which players are going to be favoured by Arsene Wenger for the starting XI. And the fit again French striker Olivier Giroud seems pretty confident that he will be one of them.

We already have the likes of Tomas Rosicky, Joel Campbell and Lukas Podolski getting frustrated at warming the bench on a weekly basis, but with Giroud back in the frame and Theo Walcott, we hope, close to a full comeback, the situation in the forward line is set to become even more competitive.

Rival boss reckons Arsenal title challenge is ON! Really?

While it is true that a club’s own fans, with Arsenal no exception, can often see their beloved club and players with rose tinted glasses, especially during a game when we see fouls and bad decisions against us that may not really be there and think our own players are judged too harshly, the opposite can be true as well.

Some of the harshest critics of Arsenal Football Club, Arsene Wenger and individual players are often the Arsenal fans ourselves. So while the media may be praising the Gunners today for the fight, spirit and determination needed to keep pushing a strong Southampton side and grab a last minute winner, a lot of us Gooners think we should have secured the points much earlier.

Gibbs predicts MASSIVE future for Arsenal team mate! But where?

Because of the amount of Arsenal players that have been in and out of the treatment room and therefore the available squad already this season, our new summer signing Calum Chambers has had plenty of opportunity to impress Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal fans following his transfer from Southampton in the summer.

The 19-year old has already proved his versatility, impressing at centre back and right back and he might even get a chance to show what he can do against his former club at left back tonight, with both of the first choice left backs facing late fitness tests.
