In-Depth Analysis of the Arsenal squad – Part 2 Defenders

Continuing my analysis of the current Arsenal squad by JA

We’ll rate them again based on comparisons of requirements for the roles.

Why Arsenal could be looking for a centre-back to replace Koscielny

Many Arsenal fans are seemingly worried about the fact that the new Real Madrid manager Rafael Benitez has become interested in signing our very own Laurent Koscielny as a replacement for the departing Sergio Ramos. We all agree that Kos has one of very best players for a long time, but as the Frenchman is now 29 years-old you have to admit that a reported price of £21 million is very hard to ignore.

The Curious case of Arteta and the Arsenal captaincy

Does Arsenal need a new captain by Galen.

Arsenal have had some great captains and great leaders in the past. They didn’t just captain Arsenal but they captained their countries as well. I think of Adams and Viera. In the last couple of years we have changed captains like a pub team. From Gallas to Cesc to RVP to Verminator to Arteta….Our captaincy situation has become a joke. I even hear fans saying that when you are made Arsenal captain it means you will soon be out of the club. LOL!

Arsenal’s internationals The Good, The Bad and The Ugly!

Bad day for Arsenal stars is GOOD news for Club

Just one week on from the joy of celebrating a second FA cup triumph in a row, this weekend proved to be chastening experience for the Arsenal players on international duty. So it was back down to earth with a bump for the Gunners in the France and England squads.

Wenger explains why Arsenal MUST start BFG at Wembley!

It is now a generally accepted truth that the best defender in the Arsenal squad is the France international Laurent Koscielny. But for the last two seasons or so it has been the combination of the Frenchman’s abilities of aggression, pace and playing on the front foot alongside the calmness, aerial ability, and reading of the game that his usual partner at the heart of defence Per Mertesacker has, that has given Arsenal a much more solid platform at the back.

That´s better! BPL team of year with FOUR Arsenal stars!

The fact that there has already been one article on Just Arsenal today with a wildly different Premier League team of the season based on statistics shows you that as well as not telling the whole story, stats can show very different results depending on which ones you use.
