Should Gazidis get on the phone to Manuel Pellegrini? By Twig
I must admit that I would be surprised to see the Arsenal board appoint our former striker Thierry Henry as the new manager before he cut his teeth anywhere else, but stranger things have happened. And the flying Frenchman took one step closer to replacing his former mentor Arsene Wenger this week as he completed the next stage of his UEFA coaching courses.
This could all be speculation of course, as the football media gets their teeth stuck into a host of Arsenal rumours about the growing pressure on the manager Arsene Wenger. But there is no doubt that there will be a lot of questions for the Frenchman to answer, from the fans and the press if not from inside the club itself, if the Gunners let slip what looked like the perfect chance to end the wait for another Premier League trophy this season.
We often hear the same thing from Arsene Wenger or various members of the Arsenal squad about mental toughness, team spirit ir the ability to bounce back from a disappointing performance or run of results. And they have done that a few times but on the other hand, it keeps happening.
Arsenal fans may be a bit miffed to hear that only two players from Arsenal have been included in the all-time Premier League team picked by the football legend that is Zinedine Zidane, but it could be worse. Our north London rivals Tottenham do not have a single place and neither do the big spending Man City.
Henry Gives Arsenal Tactical Advice To Beat Barcelona!
Ahead of Arsenal’s hugely significant clash against Barcelona in midweek, Gunners legend Thierry Henry has provided some much-needed tactical advice to the North London side. The Frenchman, who also represented the Catalan club after his spell at Arsenal, has recommended an altered defence-oriented approach for the Gunners to get the better of their Spanish visitors.
The Arsenal and Germany international star Mesut Ozil is currently way ahead of the chasing pack when it comes to which player will provide the most Premier League assists this season. In fact the German attacking midfielder is on course to break the long standing EPL record of 20 set by our very own Thierry Henry 13 years ago.
So after two draws in a row for Arsenal, we failed to get that elusive win over Chelsea that would have seen Arsenal come through a tough month of fixtures on top of the Premier League. And what is worse, we even failed to get the point that would have taken us back above Man City after they dropped points away to West Ham.
