Only one man to blame by GS
1)Wenger, Dick Law, Gazidis or Transfer Committee (or whoever is really in charge)
We needed a Striker and a DM. Who did we have today? Arteta and Giroud. Arteta needs to go Dubai FC or New York City FC. As for Giroud he is not Arsenal material, never has been and never will. He came to Arsenal for £10 million. That is what he is. Blaming him or calling him poor is just plain stupid. Giroud is a £10 million player and that is exactly what he has given us. Nothing more, nothing less. Forget the red card. That is exactly what Giroud’s level is – £10m.
2) Poor Planning and Sanchez.
Sanchez is so good a footballer its hard to tell when he is struggling. But this man played the Copa America and won it for his country. I expected him to miss at least the first three games of the season but he was back at Crystal Palace. We acted as if we never knew Sanchez had played at the Copa America. We had to rush him back onto the pitch.
3) Ozil and Cazorla problem.
Ozil and Cazorla together will work against the lower Premier league teams who can’t pass the ball. Any half decent team will realise that our midfield is not balanced. I remember the league game last season at Old Trafford where we just couldn’t touch the ball. We needed to bring Ramsey in the middle to help stop the firepower.
When we beat City it was a combination of Cazorla, Coquelin and Ramsey. When we beat Chelsea in the Community shield it was a combination of Ozil, Coquelin and Rambo in midfield. Playing Ozil and Cazorla in the middle is just meek. We shall be found wanting every time we play a good team. Coquelin needs Ramsey by his side to help him in these big games. Having too much technique or more possession doesn’t make you the better team.
4) Injuries and Lies.
Wenger knew Welbeck won’t be back anytime soon. he always comes back and says on advice of the medical staff we have decided that they see a specialist. What where they doing all that time. We are always late in making decisions. We waited a whole summer before doing Welbeck’s surgery. We waited a month before doing Jack’s surgery. Its madness.
Can you imagine what what will happen to Arsenal is Coquelin gets one of these injuries? Oh Lord, don’t let that happen.
5) What to expect in January.
Wenger: “The good news is that we have Jack and Welbeck back. they are both looking very good and very fit. They are both very fresh and they gonna be like new signings.” Then they will both get another injury in February…
