Arsenal are lightyears behind the other top teams

Funny that everytime we play a “top team” we get totally outplayed.

2 games vs Barca in the champions league this season, 2 games vs Man Utd in the champions league last season.

Nearly everytime we play Chelsea we are outplayed and beat, It just shows that we are lightyears behind the other top teams.

Our so called match winners just dont show up in the big games… Vermaelen who has looked a fantastic player this season and a great signing has looked just shite in the big games. Cesc hardly turns it on, Rosicky, Nasri, Arshavin all very hot and cold.

Wenger has tried to change our playing system to a 4-5-1 to a 4-3-3. He hasn’t for the tactical knowledge to beat the best teams.

People might moan about Graham and his negative football but we was a master at one off big games and getting the tactics right.

Sometimes I feel that Wenger is clueless, At half time in the 2nd leg we needed 2 goals to win the game, Why not change something? He waited till the 70th min to make a sub and that was like for like in bringing on Eboue and moving him to RB and pushing Sagna to CB for the crap Silvestre.

Finally with 15mins to go he went with 2 strikers and put Eduardo up front. But what took him so long?

We just have to admit the sad facts that Wenger is tactically poor, He has to much faith in sub standard players like Almunia, Silvestre and Denilson and 2 stubborn to spend when its clear to the world that we needed players.

Overall we are miles behind the top teams.

So what now? Wenger will give us that old spin about how he knows what the problems are and will be working hard in the summer to big in new players. But of course his main goal is to keep this bunch of players together… YAWN!!!

This is getting abit boring now, Maybe its just time for Wenger to admit that his project has failed and its time for something new?

    To let one player score four goals in a game is criminal negligence.That shows the players have not been taught the art of defence.In the the wc 1986 Maradona was playing against England.Robson instructed the defenders to kick the ball away when Maradona was near it.
    I doubt messi will be able to score four against Inter.Only against Arsenal can someone score four goals.mark my words. Inter will play a suffocating game and flood the midield. This is anathema to AW but if it helps to win games /trophies who cares. The name of the game is winning. I rather Arsenal play ugly to win.if the red faced and Ancelotti can win pretty they would have done so already.

    There’s only ONE ‘Deano’ pal, and that’s me, but I do agree with what you say 😉

    Pathetic piece of horse-shit knee-jerk shit-inspiring article from a quim of the highest order.

    Gael Clichy has returned back to his finest form, and his humongous efforts and heart he puts out on the field warrants the role.

    Totally true that we’ve been outclassed but i don’t think we’re far off.

    AW has done a fantastic job keeping us in the Top 4 whilst moving to a new stadium.

    Very few people realize the difficulty in that achievement especially if you compare how much Man City, Tottenham, Liverpool and Aston Villa have spent to get there. In comparison, we’ve spent peanuts.

    Man City have spent more than 150m n still can’t guarantee a Top 4 place.

    To challenge for both Champions league and Prem requires a quality squad. We’re obviously a bit short … AW has no choice but to spend now and let’s hope he gets the GK we need. A DF wud be great too.

    the only criticism i have of Wenger is that against Barca, without the ball we were clueless and AW needs to remedy that. I remember when we had Flamini, we were fantastic without the ball, pressing and harrying players.

    what do u guys think of Chamakh?? he’s apparently coming to Arsenal.

    Yes we’re all disappointed with the way we capitulated to
    Barcelona they just wiped us off the park.We have had an
    amazing roller coaster of a season and there are still 5
    games left and I’m still hoping for something special!
    I for one had a fantastic couple of days in
    Barcelona and for 2.5 minutes we were on Cloud 9.
    We may not be a top top team yet and had we drawn any1
    except Barcelona we could well have gone through.
    Is it bad luck with injuries or lack of squad depth?
    There is no doubt the goalkeeper situation needs addressing
    if you are a defender playing in front of Alumunia who has made
    too many poor decisions, seems to panic at key moments and has
    poor ball distribution at best.
    At he beginning of the season,in 6’4″Johan Djourou, we an emerging centre-back
    with growing Premiership and International experience
    he injures his knee and misses the whole season. Nasri breaks his
    leg and is out for 3 months, Vela is injured in WC qualifying,
    Eduardo, Rosicky still struggling and Bendtner gets injured really
    in September and this sort of sequence carries on throughout the
    season! Bad luck or bad planning for me our team this year has been
    more styled towards winning the league than Europe.
    I think Wegner needs to instil a better mentality in our team when lose
    the ball too many times we have given cheap goals when losing possession.
    Wegner in big games has become too cautious when things haven’t gone well
    he sticks too long with the same players I would have loved to see the
    forgotten Vela play someone with experience of playing against Barca! Having
    two fast wingers might (!) have given us more options when we had the ball.
    Arsenal forever let’s roar our team on for the run in!

    Song is twice the dm that Flamini is. There is a reason why Flamini can’t get a game for Milan. He had a one off amazing season playing for a new contract and then fucked off on silly wages to a gullible team like Milan. Brown did the same and United, had an immense season earned a big contract and is now SHIT.

    Fletcher is nothing more than a big game player. He’ll turn up against Chelsea, Arsenal or Real Madrid run around and foul everyone, but he disappears against any team not at the top of Europe’s elite. Do you even watch any football? Prawn sandwich brigade perhaps?

    We are not the 7/8th team in Europe, we are easily top 5. We have been unlucky to lose RVP for so long, and then Gallas, Arshavin, Song, Fabregas at key points. United would not be challenging if they’d been missing Rooney for so long. Liverpool lost Torres and they’ve faded out.

    Come back when you know something about football

    Come one

    Did anyone seriously expect us to win that game, when we had five or our most important players out including our captain and best player.
    They are the best team in the world and have the best player in the world. The only thing I blame wenger for is playing silvestre instead of cambel. Apart from that, what else could he have done? So many twats are quick to get on the boss’s back after 1 bad result that he could do nothing about

    Light years? Well it’s three points in the league actually. Still, don’t let the facts get in the way of a good moan if it makes you feel better.
    Yes we were beaten by a better side. It happens. Deal with it.

    You say

    “Our so called match winners just dont show up in the big games… Vermaelen who has looked a fantastic player this season and a great signing has looked just shite in the big games. Cesc hardly turns it on, Rosicky, Nasri, Arshavin all very hot and cold.”

    and also

    “sub standard players like Almunia, Silvestre and Denilson and 2 stubborn to spend when its clear to the world that we needed players.”

    Make up your mind who is to blame here…do our big players hide and run scared in big games, or are the supporting acts not good enough. I would suggest the former. We have not done well against the big teams because our big players have gone hiding. Arsh had chances to score against United (H) and Chelski (A) but missed relative sitters. In Barca, Rosicky and Nasri did not dominate as they should (maybe not fully fit, but they were out there, so should do a job).

    I’m pretty fed up of the blame falling at the feet of the boo boys, especially Denilson. Once again against Barca, he always wanted the ball and was not afraid to atleast try and use it. Maybe he isn’t the greatest player, but atleast he doesn’t run scared as the others do.

    this season is remarkable? why what have we done? just like last year we have won nothing. We are only having a good season because United and Chelsea are having a crap season.

    As for RVP being out injured, yeah he was, wenger should have brought a fucking replacement in January when he had the chance.

    fuck me, you have your head so far up wengers arse I bet when he farts you make the noise.

    Without wenger this, without wenger that. What a man. I bet he could feed the starving and bring about world piece if he wanted. What guy. Perhaps we should file for bankruptcy now because we’ll never last once he leaves us.
