This is where Barcelona really bettered us by Briantole
We played a game where the entire world expected Arsenal to lose, but after that 2 0 defeat some fans were really over reacting and started putting the blame on some of our players, but I don’t think all of it was justified. Let us see…..
We were going well defensively for most of the game, doing extremely brilliant to keep out the outstanding MSN strike force. We were doing well in midfield, and players like Bellerin and Chamberlain were doing very well in possession. But we were let down in the final third where it seemed many of our players lacked ideas. Our crosses were cut and our shots were blocked. We were not playing with purpose in that position and didn’t seem to be causing as many problems as we should have to their back 4, and not only that, even our counter attacks were not up to scratch. Their defenders always found a way to deal with them. We were really lacking the sharpness, which was more than welcome news for Barca who did not have any problems with the Arsenal strike force.
I would like us to try this lineup at the Nou Camp..
Sanchez Ozil Welbeck.
You see Walcott might not be our most favourite player but his movement is sublime (one thing lacking from Giroud) and his pace electrifying (which is another thing lacking from Giroud). Other than that Walcott can always rotate with Sanchez and give him space to drift to the centre.
He can also score goals from either flanks which is an added bonus to our goal threat. Welbeck has produced some very mature performances for us in the right flank. The rest of the choices are self-explanatory.
It’s important to move on well, and move on from past mistakes…
