So what DO Arsenal need to do to SUCCEED?

I think it is safe to say that it has not really happened for Arsenal this season, so far at least. After the encouraging way that Arsenal led the Premier League table for most of the last campaign, we were hoping that a few key signings in the transfer market and a few less injuries, because of the new fitness and medical experts, would make the difference and offer Arsenal the extra level we needed to make a serious challenge for the title.

That now looks forlorn as we sit in 8th place and nine points behind the league leaders Chelsea, so what do Arsenal need to do and what should we have done in the summer?

I do think that Arsene Wenger identified one of the problems and addressed it, by signing Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck to give us more attacking options and more pace up front. And this has worked to a certain extent, as both new signings have shown flashes of brilliance and suggested that they will be great additions to the squad. But Alexis is new to the BPL and is still getting used to his new team while Welbeck is learning his new role as a centre forward.

We also have new players in Debuchy and Chambers and while the Frenchman is at the peak of his powers apart, the youngster is still raw although he does look to have fantastic promise and versatility. Then we still have Walcott out and because of the World Cup in Brazil, Wenger had a disrupted and far from ideal pre-season and our best player of last year could not rediscover that form for some reason.

All this makes it feel to me like Arsenal are a team in progress rather than the finished article, which always seems to be the case. And that is highlighted by Chelsea, who added two players at the peak of their form, Fabregas and Costa, to an already strong side and they do look the finished article.

The Gunners have had two great results against Aston Villa and Galatasaray and flashes of brilliance against Man City, along with a very encouraging desire and determination not to be beaten. I am sure that Arsenal will push on after the international break and come the New Year we will have Giroud and Debuchy back. Wenger might even sign Sami Khedira if the rumours are true, which could help us have a good go at the latter stages of the Champions League.

To win the league, however, Arsenal still need a fair few improvements, so are we looking at next season? And what do you think Arsenal need to do to turn from nearly men into champions?

      I stand to be corrected (with statistics); Wilshere seems to be Arsenal’s problem. Wenger need to know that top teams don’t have time to be experimenting player(s).
      Arsene Wenger doesn’t look like a serious manager to me.

      1. A top quality, proven, 6ft+ powerhouse DM
      2. Cover at CB
      3. To stop playing Ozil as a winger and use him only as a no 10.
      4. To stop trying to play Ozil and Cazorla together (one or other)
      5. To play our pacy, aggressive, direct wingers (Sanchez, Ox, Theo, Gnabry) and use the flanks
      6. A first team and player positions that are maintained for more than a game at a time.
      7. Consideration of the anthropometry (size) of the team being put out….we are on average 4” shorter than chelski and a stone lighter (and that’s without Lampard). At gk, cb and striker there all big enough so this all seems to be in the midfield area….great if no one is going to close us down or impose themselves and we can play like Barca….but not always going to happen.
      8. Playing more fast counter attacking football. With welbz up front and either Sanchez, the ox or theo on the wings, and with ozil releasing the ball we should be able to counter against anyone.
      9. Good old fashioned passion. A never say die, we will not lie down, will not be beaten attitude from the players…encouraging each other and being prepared to ball out anyone not pulling their weight. More on pitch charisma and hunger.
      10. Time…and some luck.

      Or maybe our current manager needs to be sure of himself, his tactisics, his team and his players. For e.g, why benching Oxlade-Chamberlain when he has played (against Totenham and Gala) like someone who has fire in his belly? Take a look at this:

      1——-Welbeck
      —-Alexis –Ozil –Ox-Chamberlain

      2——–Welbeck
      —-Alexis —Cazorla —-Ozil

      What is the difference between 1 and 2?
      Well for starters, the winning front four would have been left unchanged ( that front 4 partnership looked like they were building some understanding with each other). Also
      the Ox-Chamberlain would have provided pace and DIRECTNESS (as it was with Alexis) on the right wing. He would have occupied Azipilicueta the same way Alexis did Ivanovic and Schurle thereby rendering the later less effective than Hazard who had all the freedom in the world to drift into the middle and dribble right through our defence!
      You call it hindsight, I say these things are interconnected somehow.

    It will be a repetition of my earlier comment but since the topic is “So what DO Arsenal need to do to SUCCEED?”, here is my take:

    Wenger prefrence of wilshere (and playing him central position to make him look good) is destroying the whole structure of team. Ozil, the best No. 10 has been relegated to wings, cazrola and Rosicky are non starters and proper winger like OX, podolski and campbell never plays.
    His stats for attacking (Key passes, assists, pass completion in final third etc) is pathetic for someone playing at top level in middle position. His defensive stats are also not very good (tackle won etc).

    Just analyzing the past season record:
    1) our best wins like against Borussia dortmund away, Liverpool at home, napoli at home, where we totally dominated the opponents, came when wilshere was not playing. We even drawn Bayern at their home ground when he didn’t played.
    2) Our worst defeat like BD at home, Liverpool away, Manchester City away came when he played. (I am not taking chelsea defeat into consideration as we were one man down).
    3) In final phase of last season, arsenal won 9 out of 10 matches when he was injured and didn’t played.

    Even now our best wins, i.e. against Villa and Galatacsy came when he didn’t played.

    Ozil i he has highest assists in Europe for three seasons (more than xavi or fabregas). He didn’t became bad player by coming to arsenal. He played out of position to accomodate wilshere.

    Ozil was No 10 twice this season

    1)champion league: 1 assist and 1 indirect one and initiating 2 others

    2) aston villa: 1 goal , 1 assist

    in that position , this is what matters ,not tracking back or running with ball.

      Ozil played as No. 10 all last season and was average overall. Dont know why people completely forget last season when they mention Ozil underperforming. He underperformed for almost the whole season and especially flopped in big matches. Ozil just isnt cut out for premier league, doesnt have the effort required either. Best thing to do would be to sell and reinvest in the right player. Only reason Ozil was signed was to quiet fans. Even when the signing happened I remember a lot of ppl saying he was the wrong player for us. Turns out its correct. AW should take some blame too, but if Ozil doesnt put the effort in, he will always fail.

        “Only reason Özil was signed was to quiet fans”.
        And all the while I was thinking the reason he was bought was because he had been tearing up and burning down the assists chart as one of the worlds most prominent No 10 the past 3 years. Hmmmmmm.

Getting new manager, some one younger than wenger and for that klopp fits the bill ane his tactics against big teams is excellent and he can play a gegen pressing style that will beat mourinho and kick his ass and other big clubs as well and his style of play is awsome eye catching and lovely to watch.. Love him(Klopp) to succeed wenger for next season and he will add talented and class playersfrom his own club dortmund like hummels top class defender on par with kompany at the moment, reus awsome player no need to explain his quality, Sven bender or gundogan.. Also he will add other talented hardworking young players from other clubs to win trophier he will do everything to make us a top top side once a again i believe and admire his tactics and passion for game… Thumbs up guys if u agree..

      Klopp and Dortmund have played pretty badly in the few games and this is why some idiots will crawl out from their caves to bash on him. Funny how Dortmund have been playing horrendously but still managed to beat us at ease.

      Klopp has the ability to build a team. Not like LVG or Mourinho who just spend 100-200 million on on-demand players. Reus, Hummels (brought from rival), Subotic, Bender, Gundogan.. they were all brought into the team while Klopp was in charge. He’s had to witness key players join a rival (a la Arsenal) and what I understand, BVB doesn’t have the spending power Arsenal now has.

      He’s got tactics, he got BVB all the way to the Champions League final and raped Real Madrid in the process. But most of all I love his passion; he looks like manager, he sounds like manager and seems like the type who would be furious at the players if we would perform as we perform against big teams. He seems like manager who could actually motivate our players and get the best ouf them and NOT play them out of positions.

    The realistic target this season should be finishing in the top three and avoid CL play-offs next season. Philosophy doesn’t necessarily have to change, just tactics. First, players need to be played where they are most effective even if it means leaving on the bench one or two high profile signings who don’t fit the set up of the team on the day. Secondly, we need to learn how to play without the ball. Having possession is one thing, but when you lose it how do you get it back. Pep’s Barca were excellent at that. Wenger has lost the plot.

    Why is JustArsenal in a toxic meltdown? You all expected us to lose, and lose we did. Shouldn’t you be cheerful or something?

    Like d*cks you all comparing Mesut and Cesc after one game? And the unanimous verdict is Mesut is sh*t and Cesc great based on one game.

    They were in LaLiga for a similar period of time. Tell me o you enlightened ones, who the fcuk had the better stats? Yes Mesut was sh*t yesterday. Erratic first touch and getting out muscled by Cesc from the ball didn’t make any pretty viewing. But he doesn’t deserve the sh*t you lot are throwing by the bucket loads.

    One goal and three assists from 7 games for a player out of form and in his least favoured position is not a bad thing from where i am sitting(4 against top oppositions).

    Like i said, our honeymoon period starts now till new year. Only Liverpool and United(both whom we can beat with full strength Arsenal team) are top opposition left to play.

    Yes we are 8th and 10 points with 7 games. But to reach half way mark, 12 games still left.
    From this 12 if we can get 30-33 points, it will be 40+ at the half way mark.

    Than we have a January Window, and we strengthen.

    So where is the problem?

      I agree, this site is full of fickle two faced idiots who cannot tell when a player has actually had a decent game and contributed. People need to remember and realize that it has only been one season since we have actually started spending again, in that sense buying world class players. We have won 2 trophies since then in a period of one season. 2 DECENT TROPHIES and some mugs on here want a new manager, new medical team, a new squad and while we are at it lets build f*cking new stadium….OH WAIT. If Wenger does not buy a top DM and CB in January, then I AGREE its time for him to go, but let us just have some patience and until then support the team, we have pretty much a whole season still ahead of us.

      @Sumo.. Cesc had the better stats.. The only stat Ozil can come close to Cesc is in the assist department.. And it’s not even that a big gap, when Ozil gets 17 assists a season Cesc will get 13 or 15 assists..

      But that’s the only comparison. In all the other important stats Ozil is miles off, if a game is hard fought for then Ozil goes missing.. Cesc will score, attack, tackle, defend, lead etc..

      Wilshere played a good second half yesterday. Unlcuky with his pass to Sanchez in the first half which Sanchez couldn’t get under control. His First touch also let him down when Cazorla gave him the simple pass inside their box, we could’ve equalized immediately, I think that would’ve shocked them for a whie atleast.

      Wenger should’ve played diamond with the same three CMF Wilshere-Flamini-Cazorla, but instead of putting Ozil on the wing he should have been playing in behind both strikers. I think that is one reason we didn’t see him create any goal scoring opportunity.

    Also our first teamers are returning slowly.

    Gnabry, Walcott, Ramsey, Arteta, will be up and running by the United game(22nd November).

    We still have Debuchy and Giroud to be back.

    Now the uncomfortable question you will ask is
    “Why are our players injured so often despite we hiring Shad?”

    And your assumption is “Must be Wenger training.”

    And your silution is “Wenger Out”.

    But the answer is it will take time for Shad to implement his style on our game. He is not a wizard who will stop out injuries by saying Repario nor he has Fakwes’s tears to heal injuries. It will take him more than six months.

    What would you have us do? Buy 9 players like Pool and than play Europa.

    We bought in 6 players.

    And three vital new players who has yet to understand each other (They don’t even share a common language).

    Our striker cant speak Spanish, Sanchez can’t speak English. Mesut can speak both. To form a understanding 10 games are a minimum bench mark.

    10 attempts to their 4.

    0 shots on goal to their 2(both of which were converted).

    Yes i was depressed after the match, but we put up a fight.

    Listen to me you muppets-

    Yesterday Chelsea were a full strength team with Costa, Cesc and Hazard in form of their life (not to mention the cyclinal fouling).

    Being an Arsenal you learn to live with injuries but we had our best and experienced RB missing and played a kid. With out our star performer of last year Ramsey. With out Walcott (most consistent Arsenal player since RvP).

    We will beat them fair and square any day of the weak when we have our full strength team.

    Can’t you lot see not even one player is in form at the moment for us?

    Or is Wenger somehow responsible for them being out of form.

    What do we need, well here goes:

    1. New tactically aware, up to date, hungry to win manager – No other way around this Wenger’s time is over, we thank him for his time here and he has achieved a lot but time for him to go take a sit up stairs and allow the club to progress under a new manager

    2. New DM – No brainer here really, need I say more.

    3. New defenders – Atleast two who could easily displace and improve on Mert

    4. Get ride of fringe players and create space for better recruits – Flamini, Arteta, TR7 (sadly), Coq, Diaby, Poldi, Ryo.

    5. Selection of players depending on form and not the name – no one should be graduated first spot.

    6. Better training sessions because apparently our players look so clueless and lack energy in certain games.

    7. We still need to beef up our medical team

    8. New assistant coach if Wenger stays – Bould should be the 3rd man on that bench, we need someone who can pressure Wenger and actually teach him a thing or two

    9. New pants for Sanchez – the man clearly wants to wear old school shorts and now his spending time pulling his pants up (little joke).

    10. Improve our attitude, desire to wear our colors, and give 100% in each game for Christ’s sake

    The club needs fans that know what they want but it seems all the fans are satisfied with what is going on. If the manager is responsible kick him out, is it that hard ? no. Is the board responsible kick them out. is is hard? no. is the players the problem? sell them off. is it hard? no.
    This club is going down the drain year after year. In the next 5 years it will be tending towards liverpool and Newcastle( 20 years without league title) Since when did Arsenal not need World class players. Everyone here is saying CB and CDM. we need world class players in almost every position to compete. People are saying we had a good game yesterday, definitely any small team can have a good day against a giant. We played like a small team with big balls yesterday and we have been doing that for 14 years.
    Players like Giroud, Sanogo, Arteta, Flamini, Diaby, cocklin( cant even spell) Podloski Debuchy, Wilshere are supposed to be playing for teams like Sunderland and QPR. Dont get me wrong, i love our players but some of them are at the wrong club.
    So where does the problem come from, FANS. We just dont know what we want yet because Wenger would be out and definitely the board would also be out. We pay the highest ticket in the world to be disappointed year in year out plus having the highest paid manager in the world.(hahaha)

      Completely agree, we have some very over rated players. The squad needs a good cutting down, realistically who out of our team would walk into a city or Chelsea team?
      If I was to pick out those teams there more than likely wouldn’t be anyone left. As far as I can tell Sanchez for the same price as Costa is a joke. Especially when forward was a position needed not particularly a winger.
      Dm issue has been one for years now, always linked never buy.

      “shame on his croonies who still think he is god”

      Hello Muppet
      Did you see the interview or the incident?
      Let me narrate.

      Cahill made a red-carding (which wasn’t even booked) tackle to Sanchez and Wenger wanted to see if our star-player was injured or not. Thus he walked towards Sanchez. But Muareen made a gesture for him to get back to his place.

      So what did your want our manager to do? Fall on his feet and beg to Maureen to pass him so he could see that our best player didn’t get injured?

      I would rather have him slap Maureen.

      The stadium ban and the fine would have been worth it.

      If you think we(even if we support Wenger, we are still Arsenal fans) are croonies than i have nothing more to add.

    New ideas, more creativity, change of tactics and stop trying to score that “perfect” goal.

    1) Sign the right players which the squad is lacking Or for the weak positions

    2) play the right players at the right position

    3) make the right Subs

    4) Sub at the right time

    5) Spend some money and sign some quality

Or they will up and go coz contracts don’t mean crap these days. I beg you MR AW or at least get a number 2 that knows what he is there for

    A lot!! I wouldn’t mind of wenger started to address ba couple of issues but they all seem to continue unfixed. Why did he not complete the dm and cb signing we needed? Why late subs? Why sub players doing well and stick with ones who are not? Why are you not being decisively ruthless with players who are no longer good enough, (per, arteta, poldi)? Why play players out of position? Why still so many injuries? Lots of whys some could be fixed quickly others not. Wengers remedies none!Most simple fixes to me are diditch per abd buy a wc cb, buy kondogbia, play ozil at 10,. Don’t play ramsey, wilshire and arteta together. Sell joel campbell if hes not going to play.

    What did Wenger do wrong yesterday? Kos stuck his leg out and gave away a penalty. Chelsea go 1 up at the Bridge and it’s over. But what could Wenger have done about Kos? Nothing really.

    In fact, if anything, he sent out a well prepared team. The backlash is in huge part from people that have their panties in a twist that Ozil took Cesc’s place and basked in the glory of Cesc while their own team lost.

    Forget Attack for a bit and think, can we get clean sheet against big teams ?
    Jose’s Chelsea, Rafa’s Liverpool are built to defend. They are perfectly happy to get a draw against bigger teams. They could go to Munich, Madrid and barca and come away with a clean-sheet.
    Our success last year and year before that was getting clean-sheet(except against Big Teams). But this year everybody is capable of scoring against us.
    They performance level of BFG, koscielny have dropped. Gibbs was never reliable defensively. Chamber is a 19 yr old who is bound to make mistakes and I don’t even talk about the DM situation.
    If we can get clean-sheets back again then there is a chance we can get back on track.
    TITLE is far from our reach, I am accepting that now.
    We cannot compete with Excellently built Chelsea and ManCity squads.

    1. Play Ozil as number 10 (central) and NOT on wing.
    2. In January get minimum top DM and defender but a top forward like Cavani, Martinez or Reus would be awesome too.
    3. don’t use 4-3-3 anymore. Use the formations used against Galatasaray and Villa.
    4. Let Wilshere earn his spot on the team, if he isn’t performing well take him off.

    no world class no 10 can thrive without a solid defensive midfielder.even zidane himself complained and even struggled when GREAT MAKELELE WAS SOLD.FABREGAS HAS MATIC.THE SUCCESS OF A WORLD CLASS 10 IS DEPENDENT ON THE SOLIDITY OF THE DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDER BEHIND HIM.OTHER EXAMPLES—-SILVA–YAYA TOURE,FERNANDINHO,DENNIS BERGKAMP—PATRICK VIERIA,ZIDANE–MAKELELE,.great 10s thrive better with a solid defensive midfield.lets get a ruthless DM AND SEE HOW IT GOES.
