Arsenal Debate- Sell Ozil and buy Carvalho?

I believe its high time Arsenal start playing and more importantly look to start thinking to play like Arsenal of the old. Whats stopping us from doing that! Well too many cooks spoil the Broth. Too many playmakers playing the No. 10. This needs to be stopped.

The key area should be acquiring a beast of a Defensive Midfielder who can defend the back 4 and more importantly should look imposing on the opposition.

Carvalho fits the bill like no other as he is young and can be easily molded into Arsenal’s style of play and sync with the rest of the team and importantly go on to serve the club for a long time.

Where does Wilshere ankle injury leave Arsenal?

The next two days could turn out to be the most important of the season for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger. A humbling and humiliating Champions League defeat by Borussia Dortmund on the back of a stuttering start to the Premier League season has left us teetering on the brink of disaster.

Morale and self belief among the players must be pretty low and Wenger also has a mounting injury crisis to deal with ahead of a must win away game with high flying Aston Villa, who beat Liverpool at Anfield last weekend, so now is when the manager needs to really earn his money.

Ozil out of form? Arsenal fans should think about Ramsey

There was a time when the mention of Aaron Ramsey’s name alone could crash a plane; his form was that bad. He lost the support of many fans in whose opinion he was, in the words of Piers Morgan, “a complete and utter liability”. Ramsey wasn’t actually a bad player, he was one of the best upcoming widely known lads in football. Everything just went wrong for him after that injury.

It looks like Arsene Wenger has decided to try to get over the Arsenal defensive crisis while also taking advantage of the one being suffered by Jurgen Klopp and his Borussia Dortmund side, because he has picked a pretty attacking line-up, with the big news being that young Hector Bellerin get his first senior start in place of the injured Mathieu Debuchy.

It is not only that that points to the Gunners going for it either, because Kieran Gibbs comes in on the left and Mikel Arteta gets the nod ahead of the more defensive minded Mathieu Flamini. Wenger has also kept both Ramsey and Wilshere in the team and the under fire German record signing Mesut Ozil starts as well.

The start of this season has been pretty tough with us having already played Everton and Manchester City as well as two crucial Champions League qualifier games. And it won’t let up either with a vital game against Dortmund in Germany for us to start our Champions League campaign.

Arsenal fans need to cut Ozil some slack

The ball was lobbed. The Gunner in Bright Yellow waiting – unmarked- in the left wing. One sublime touch to bring it down and another to slide it to Giroud and GOAL for Arsenal!

There he was. All smiles. 14 minutes into the game, providing. While CR7 fumed and Real Madrid fans sang, He was there, our new Messiah, Our Mesut Özil.

But this wasn’t the fairy story that went on ever after, he was questioned from the moment he arrived. “Did we need another attacking midfielder when our priorities were a striker and defensive midfielder?” And with an accusation from the Real Madrid President “He parties too much. That’s why we sold him.”

Is Ozil causing Arsenal to lose precious points?

Match Review
Arsenal played out an entertaining 2-2 draw against Manchester City at home in the Premier League last Saturday, as both sides went hammer and tongs at each other, to show for a just a point apiece in the end. Players from both sides gave it their all, literally, and were up for the battle from the first whistle to the last. They kept running about and, in what was an unusually feisty encounter between two beautiful Footballing sides, weren’t hesitant to get physical, either. Arsenal, other than Mesut Ozil, were terrific and, had it not been for some flimsy defending in the last 10 minutes, could have pulled off a remarkable result. However, with Ozil struggling to live up to the pedigree he came into the Emirates with, how does Wenger persist with German playmaker?

This has been a long two weeks without watching Arsenal play and it’s made worse by the fact that we’ve had the bitter taste of a draw against Leicester still in our mouths. But we have a chance to get back on track with a win against Man City and there is a lot to be excited about.

We don’t know what formation we’ll play, we don’t know how effective Welbeck will be for us, we don’t know whether we’ll be better equipped to face the bigger teams now. There are a lot of questions but the result tomorrow will give us a lot of answers.

Arsenal rocked by Ramsey injury worry!!

Just when Arsenal thought they had come through the two week international break with no real injury and fitness concerns, our star midfielder Aaron Ramsey seemed to pick up an injury in the last few minutes of Wales’ hard fought win in Andorra.

The referee had not been helping Wales by allowing the Andorran players to get away with some hefty and dangerous challenges. But it was not a bad tackle that caused the Arsenal man a problem. It appeared to be as a result of the artificial 3G pitch.

How Arsenal can benefit from Podolski international pride!

With Arsenal having three first team players in the Germany squad that won the World Cup in Brazil this summer, Arsene Wenger has had a difficult start to the season as they all came back pretty late and still in party mode after the celebrations.

There are benefits to the situation as well, though, and hopefully Arsenal will now start to see the best from Per Mertesacker, Mesut Ozil and Lukas Podolski again. The BFG has retired from international football which should help him to prolong his club career, but at 29-years old it looks like Podolski is keen to carry on.

Walcott return to give Arsenal REAL pace and NEW tactics?

When Arsenal had to do without the England international speed merchant for most of last season, especially with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also in the treatment room, it meant that the Gunners were missing a huge ingredient in modern football, pace.

So the news that the flying forward is due back in action for Arsenal soon after the current international break is really good. However, Walcott will come back into a much changed looking Arsenal attack and he will not be the one player with pace for the likes of Mesit Ozil and Aaron Ramsey to find with through balls.
