Great News for Arsenal includes Aguero and Swansea

There has been a lot of negative talk from Arsenal fans and football pundits following the FA cup draw against Swansea yesterday, but it is not all doom and gloom. Firstly, the performance was lots better than when we played them in the league a month ago. Yes, the first half was drab, but Arsenal were the better side in the second half and should have won.

The penalty claim is inconclusive, but Wenger and Laudrup seem to think it could easily have been given. Wenger asked why Ramsey fell if he was not clipped, accidentally or not. If he had not been, he was in on goal and should have scored. Plus, both of Swansea’s goals were from silly mistakes.

The problem is, say many people, that we now have to play again next Wednesday, in between tough league games against Man City and Chelsea. This is true, but it happens. Swansea and Chelsea have even more games to worry about, with a two legged semi-final. The first of them is this week and the second is in the week after we play at Stamford Bridge, so we are not in a worse position than either of the teams we face.

This Sunday sees the visit of the champions Manchester City to the Emirates stadium, and there is some good news there as well. Their best striker this season has been Sergio Aguero, but he has been ruled out of the game because of a torn hamstring. Balotelli and Mancini have fallen out, no matter what they say to the nedia and their best midfielder, Yaya Toure, is away on international duty.

So cheer up Gooners, we are still in a good position to progress in the FA cup, with a championship team, Brighton, waiting in the next round. Diaby should be back for some of the crunch games this month and Wenger has spoken about signing some new players. The glass is half full, not half empty. Come On You Gunners.

    According to my sauces (Tomato and BBQ) I can catagorically tell you that David Villa is not at Heathrow. He’s not even in England. He’s been seen this morning at Barcelona’s training ground doing a cool down session with the squad.

    Don’t raising peoples hopes!

    @ Leo

    You have nailed it.
    We have a grilling schedule and I don’t know how we are going to manage it… This squad is just too short of quality ( Wenger’s fault, of course ).

    We also have to cross our fingers to be injury free during that period ( which is most unlikely )…

    Headaches for Wenger and, unfortunately, more abuses from the fans…!!!

    I don’t think it’s a bad thing to look at how other teams will line-up! Some of you who thinks this is a weakness is very short-sighted. Every team will look at the opposition and see where their weaknesses will be. Its only natural!

    Surely the current Arsenal is very short on quality, that is why they struggle to pass the ball and also they can hardly play at high tempo for sustained periods because that leads to giving away the ball too easily and repeatedly feeding the opposition to attack our not so steady defence. The last few games have reminded me of Denilson who was always singled out as a sideways passer of the ball and not effective enough, for now I think we might as well bring him back he will fit in very well with the rest of the mediocre players we have on show week in and week out.

    its not the attacking side of our game thats a problem, its our freaking defence.. if we start keeping cleansheets, we would be a force to reckon with.. arteta and wilshere are the same sort of players.. why cant we have a powerful defensive midfielder who would break up play.. gibbs is overrated, his position is known as a left ‘back’ position, where he should focus more on defending rather than always being caught out of position.. one good block in 3 games does not make him a quality left back.. maybe when hes 26 he would be one.. as far as sagna, hes good but not great.. if he was sooo amazing every single team would have been after him as hes also in his final year of his contract.. jenkinson, inexperienced but has the potential to be great.. i almost broke my tv when graham scored.. shitty defending!

    Arsenal: Giroud, Theo (?), Podolski (?)

    Sorry, but in the striker category we lose that battle. Very glad they will be without Toure.

    We should be able to win the game as long as the defense doesn’t play like we did against Swansea. We can’t keep getting draws due to sloppy defending on corners and counters. Gibbs & Sagna have got to stay back more.

    Pease we should stop thinking of diaby, let’s go and buy a good DM instead of worrying ourselves on the injury prunes players. They play a match or two and the next one they are injured, we should stop rushing this players. It is really sad that a team like arsenal are always hoping for injured players to be fit, it’s annoying. Where is the money that the management always shout they have to splash? We should please stop deceiving ourselves and face reality. In dzeko, man city have a replacement for aquero. Man city is not like us, when all our back up players are inexperience or injury prone. So I don’t see anything to be happy about

    Mark my word, Arsenal IS NOT going to sign Villa or any pedigree striker and will end up with a couple of mediocre players at the 11 hours of the final day of transfer window. So stop dreaming and please look back to the history of previous Januarys transfer windows!!

    If it trues szczesny not signing new contract then he will be definetly heading to Barcelona soon as he said one day he wants to play for them and the Barc goalie has recently said he does not know what the future holds for him after this season???? Another transfer saga this summer for Wenger then to detract from strengthening the squad. Same old Arsenal!!! How come Man U never have these problems!!!!

    If he does want to leave get Jack Butland he’s English born, Good and CHEAP!!!! But knowing Wenger to late and too slow to react. Even if he bought him now for £6M could sell him for £10M in the future easily. Did someone say Wenger has an economics Degree???

    David Villa was without doubt a world class player. For the money rumoured he still needs to be!!
    Arsene should get Song back whilst talking to Barca, he’s an Arsenal fan, has struggled in Spain & one of the main reasons we are struggling to find some consistency.

    Stop looking elsewhere for average midfielders and bring Song home.

    Get these two & the jobs done Arsene.
