[Ratings] Thank you for not buying Mr Wenger!

Man City 4 – 2 Arsenal
(HT 1 – 0)
  • Almunia (og) 20
  • Bellamy 74
  • Adebayor 80
  • Wright-Phillips 84
  • Van Persie 62
  • Rosicky 88

Hate to say I told you so…But “I TOLD YOU SO”

One signing in the summer? WHY? This squad was NEVER good enough

When the transfer window shut at the start of Sept, so did the chance of Arsneal winning anything this season. Wenger is sitting on the profits from the sales of Adebayor and Toure but instead of sticking to his word about bring in replacements he is trying to prove a point and showing how stubborn he is YET again.

Well THANK YOU for not buying Mr Wenger. I can see why you didn’t replace Adebayor or bring in a Defensive ball winner. We clearly are good enough to win everything this season.


In wenger we trust? You bunch of Muppet’s!

Today showed what wrong with Arsenal. 1 or 2 players were fantastic and the rest  let us down.

Wenger will no doubt come out tonight and tell us how proud he is of the team spirit and how he has great confidence in this team..Deja Vu? Truly embarrassing

The sad fact is that the likes of Almunia, Song, Denilson, Diaby are NOT good enough to start for Arsenal.

Bendnter our target man is being forced to play on the wing? RVP is isolated upfront, WE ARE NOT PLAYING 4-3-3,its 4-5-1. The same as last season.

Nice judgement, Wenger – time to go

If you cant see that then you are as deluded as wenger!


My Ratings

Almunia,5 ( didnt make a save all game, Not for the first time this season, At fault for the first goal. )

Sagna,6 ( Poor crossing yet again )

Vermaelen,7 ( Could not deal with the power of Adebayor )

Gallas,7 ( See Above )

Clichy,6 ( See Sagna )

Bendtner,5 ( Wasted on the wing, AGAIN )

Song Billong,5( Worked hard but wasteful with the ball )

Fabregas, 5 ( First game back and it showed, Well off the pace )

Denilson, 4 ( Our worst player, And this is the reason why we needed a CM )

Diaby, 5 ( Errhmmm? Didnt know where he was playing and i dont think he did )

van Persie 8 ( GREAT GOAL, But needs support )

Subs:  Rosicky, 7 . Eduardo, 6 . Eboue, 6

    rvp was shit accept for that goal he scored so 8 is way to much, kept on stalling and giving the ball away. people say diably was anonymous today,denilson and “super” nic were worse wer even worse.. clichy 3 cos at fault for 3 goals and almunia not even worth rating cos consistently useless

    You’re wrong, fact is in football sometimes you lose matches, everyone does. And games away at City and Utd are 2 of the toughest 4 games this season. We were unlucky not to come back with anything, and we had some great 1st team players out still.

    Every year we hold our own against the bigger teams, those results don’t always matter to who wins the league, they didn’t for Utd last year.

    The results we get against the smaller teams is what will make or break our season.

    4 games in and you are moaning like a girl. Losing 2 away games but controlling the games against top teams. When we still have players returning.

    I bet you prefer Arsenal to lose just so you can write these articles!! Why don’t you moan about transfers in January or at the end of the season, but until then actually support the team.

    people should not get fixated about wenger it is the players who are simply not good enough. The board should break there stony silence and say weather the transfer funds are there instead of letting arsene take all the flak.

    Watch the 2nd goal again. Song was to blame with his weak tackle on Richards

    clichy once again proved to be tactically and defensively very poor, vermaelen had a terrible game, first goal he didnt jump with richards, the bellamy goal he was ball watching and same on adebayors goal, seems the left side of out defence is very weak espcailly if weve got denilson and diaby supporting. we desperately need to get our injured players back to get top 4.

    Portsmouth and Celtic are Champioship level at best. We played Everton when they were in turmoil. I bet we thrash WBA too and everything is ok again, eh? 2 real tests and we failed both, get in the real world mate

  12. Dazza

    September 13, 2009 at 9:34 am

    You are right mate, AW’s tactical nous being called into question again. Still cant get over not playing Arshavin against the chavs in the only thing we could win last year. How he kept (right-winger?!!) Bendtner on yesterday and took song off only he knows. AW is letting the fans down again big time

  13. Dazza

    September 13, 2009 at 9:37 am

    Wenger has too much control. If Rice left tomorrow, AW would cherry pick another nodding dog to help out in the creche

  14. Dazza

    September 13, 2009 at 9:41 am

    100 per cent correct mate. The only person who rates RVP more than Wenger is Robin himself. He slows our play down. I seriously believe he is only in he side for penalties, free kicks and corners. The guy offers nothing to team play. He is shit and is holding us back

  15. Dazza

    September 13, 2009 at 9:47 am

    Also, he must have known about Djourou’s problem before sept 1st, so opts to leave us with back up choices of Sivestre and Senderos. Unbelievable!

    What Ade did on RVP yesterday was shocking & he should get the book thrown at him. I don’t blame him for his goal celebration, us Gooners had that coming.
    Ade was a fantastic player in his first full season with us, then he played up over money – and rightly so (he was on 35k a week for fucksake) and Arsenal fans turned on him big time. The songs being sung at him in pre season last year when he was wearing an Arsenal shirt were disgusting. I still don’t understand WHY? (JT used Man City to get a bumper new contract at Chelski – their fans would never turn on him like Gooners did on Ade)He then had a shit season & I’m not surprised, why would anyone want to play for fans that hate you?
    Now he is showing how good he is & we better get used to it.
    RVP & Nickolas are the problems at Arsenal & they are the ones that should have been sold last year but AW was forced to sell Ade, the fans ensured that.
    I wish AW would drop RVP & play Dudu up front. Our goals to chances ratio would increase dramitically.

  17. Dazza

    September 13, 2009 at 10:09 am

    Not only did he, rightly, sell Adebarndoor but he also gave RVP an improved contract. A reward for what exactly? Even Ade offered the team more. RVP is only on the pitch for set pieces. Ok, he scores the odd great goal now and again but his link up play is awful

    we need to be taken over asap, we have no money our stadium is taking up all the profit from the dead wood we sold in the summer. rob green should have been bought in the summer, in form keeper playing for england. catermole should have been bought also, hard working ball winner, probably could have got both from the adebayor money, time for wenger to admit his wrong? you decide.

  19. arsene knows

    September 13, 2009 at 10:23 am

    i videoed the sky first and watched it this morning as too depressed last night… i was expecting a pathetic display but the opposite was true, we bossed the game from the first to last minute, we played sweet football, we made tons of chances, on another day we would have won exactly as we did at everton. it just went their way today, they got a flukey goal, you cant blame our keeper for that, thier keeper given kept them in it, we hit the post and a stonewall penaly not given… a few bad momets yes but you get that in every game over 95 mins, clichy 3 times he lost the ball and 3 goals, he has to do better, he has and he will, bendtner for me was awful but in every game some of our player and the opposition we be awful, eduardo looks class again, and to be fair adebeyor was superb, the only good player for citeh who looked a rubbish team… ade was a disgrace too and thats why wenger sold him.. i so wish he would have bought a finisher like dzeko, im sure he will, arsene knows what he is doing, some of these blogs are some kind of playstation childish fantasy rants… so far we have played great football in every game, utd game and citeh game we deserved to win.. dont worry we are looking good and wenger will buy when he is ready, arshavin last window and vermailen are pure class as is arsene as is our club as is the football we play… come on fans, we need to be class too
    up the arse, come on you rip roarers

    Sinbad you crazy bastard! Clearly Rosicky was our best player out there yet you give VP 8 for doing fuck all except score. Rosicky played 35 minutes and got a goal and an assits yet only got 7. Madness i tell the!

    listen the reason why Arsene Wenger is still at Arsenal is, because the board know he WONT spend money – a new manager will demand at least 100 million to make a team – so get your head out of the sand, Wenger is the puppet and the board the puppeteers

    It’s time 4 wenger 2 walk! if he can’t see wat a weak squad we r right now then he must hav shit in his eyes. Why denilson wasn’t replaced in the summer I hav no idea, he wouldn’t make the spurs reserve side. Uefa cup here we come, thanks again arsene, un grand twat!! U hav had 4 years to replace patrick, how much more time do u want u mug.

  24. Adebyor!!

    September 13, 2009 at 1:39 pm

    COMMON ADEBYOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    what a total cunt of a reply from what can only be a total cunt. Seebad saw the game he wanted to see, and came out on the same side of the analysis as Adebayor. Irony really is beyond cowardly virtual hooligans like you, isn’t it? Why don’t you have another 20 pints and inspire another witty response.

    September 13, 2009 at 3:24 pm

    I couldn’t agree more… my sentiments exactly.

    I too wathed the whole game and watched us dominate but get caught on an unlucky OG and 3 counter attacks, which im not saying is acceptable but it’s not like we got outplayed in any way.

    Bendtner was awful but he isn’t a right winger and it’s not fair playing him there… i though RVP was awful (more evidence that sinbad doesn’t watch the games, he just looks at the result and the goalscorers)… RVP needs to get down the gym cos he gets knocked off the ball so easily, which you can’t do if you’re playing as the main striker… flip RVP and Bendtner and then judge them. This issue is on Wenger.
    2 unlukcy OG’s in 2 games cost us points…. our luck will turn around.

    I thought Ade played really well and let himself down with the stamp and running 90 yards to celebrate… would have been a chance for him to show that he isn’t the dickhead that we all know him to be but alas, he couldn’t control himself and his true colours shone through again… just wait until the transfer window citeh fans- you’ll love some of his comments.

    Anyway… Theo and Rosicky back this week with Samir and Arshavin back in 2 weeks.. almost back to full strength.

    Two years ago,I wrote to Arsenal expressing that Almunia really sucks.He is not even qualify to play for Arsenal.His reactions are too slow and he only cares if he look good in front of the camera.
    For Ade,the foul against Fabregas,Ade did that delibrately.From the play back,Ade was looking at Fabregas’s foot and stepped on it as he turned his head away.
    I have the feeling that Ade is going to break his leg sometimes in this season and won’t be walking again the rest of his life.

    arsenal need to to buy 2 quality defensive players soon or this season will struggle badly

    We have been steadily declining for 4 years now and obvious deficiencies like replacing Flamini have not been ‘fixed’ In my opinion we will win nothing this season with the weakest goalkeeper in the PL.
    Now I am not saying Wenger has ignored our obvious failings on purpose. If he has then he is seriously falling down on the job. If it is because the board will not let him spend money then this is a disgrace when we are buying the most expensive football tickets in the world and with £40m of Man City money in the bank.
    The fact is that none of us supporters know the true story; we are fed so much disinformation. This cannot go on. The Emirates will not be filled to capacity every match as it has been to date. Notice how much longer it is taking to sell out a match; with less than a week to go, the Wigan match still has plenty of seats available. Even more worrying is that the Spurs match is far from sold out 2 weeks after going on sale. This would not have taken 2 days when we first moved to the Emirates.
    Whatever the reasons behind the current mismanagement, the bottom line is that what seemed like our new Arsenal castle will all come tumbling down financially if the decline is allowed to continue – I’m heartbroken about the whole unacceptable situation.

    I am not one of those that like to say i told you so just because Man City beat us. I am concern that some of the players we have are not good enough and for the fact that we made more than 40m in summer sales and not one decent player was brought in. I don’t know what AW is thinking but i am being lead to belive that he is just plain stubborn, simple. Every year the team is going backwards and come next season we will lose Cesc and God knows who else. It all comes down to the fact that top players see the club as lacking ambition.
    What happens when games start coming thick and fast and injury starts mounting? Three four years ago, we could get away with mediocre team because you only have 3 teamd to compete with. Now you have at least 6 teams. I am scared for my beloveth Team.

    Firstly, can i just comment on what a great Arsenal bog this is.
    Secondly, its very easy to say this was bad and this was good,etc,etc…
    There is a very fine line between success and failure…Even when we were winning trophies under Arsene..we still played badly, but in certain games we had some luck…2005 Fa Cup Final is a great example…we were utter shite but ended up winning.
    Since then Wenger has been a loser..FACT…he has also had to sell his MARQUEE player every year…Vierra, Henry, Hleb, Ade.
    This doent mean he hasnt made other mistakes…Why have we not replaced TOURE?….Yes Verma looks great but what happens if he or Willy gets injured?….
    Almunia also looks poor but only this season…(remember the semi against manure)..he was sensational!!!!

    We will have Arshavin,Walcott,Rosicky,Vela and Nasri all available in the next 2-3 weeks…and if he can find a way to control clichy’s mistakes and protect the back 4 a little more…we should be ok….

    Everyone can see that we had more possesion against both Manchesters…but this is IRRELEVANT…..We got NO POINTS….

    Wenger has until May….Lets at least give him that?
