AUDIOPOST – Arsene Wenger was in a very good mood after his makeshift Arsenal team destroyed Dinamo Zagreb 3-0 and he even made a couple of jokes with the assembled hacks after the game.
So the impossible dream is still alive and the Gunners now just have to go to Olympiakos and win by two clear goals to amazingly reach the Champions League knockout stages. It was strangely quiet in the stadium for most of the first half but Arsenal were dominant right from the off.
In an ideal world Arsene Wenger would be able to say that he was going to give the Arsenal and Chile star Alexis Sanchez a couple of weeks off. Having only played for one season in the English Premier League and having had to be very busy for the last two summers with the World Cup and then the Copa America, it would be ideal to give Alexis his very own winter break.
The Importance of Aaron Ramsey. Galen Sona
Another boring week of international football. Today I want to look at the importance of Aaron Ramsey “Rambo” to Arsenal. Truth be told we were all critical of Wenger’s decision to play Ramsey out wide. I couldn’t understand such a decision. But after watching our last four games without Ramsey, he is a key instrument in the Arsenal machine.
It looks like Arsenal fan’s hopes of having many players back after the international break look destined to be dashed, according to a report by John Cross in the Mirror. Arsene Wenger seemed optimistic a few days ago, but now it appears that only Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Hector Bellerin are expected to return to the fold, while muscular injuries to both Ramsey and Walcott will take a bit longer to recuperate if we don’t want to risk another setback.
