[Ratings] its BUY BUY or BYE BYE Arsene

Fulham 2-1 Arsenal

Bobby Zamora scored in the final minute of injury time to help Fulham come from behind to beat 10-man Arsenal.

Arsenal dominated the first 45 minutes, but only had Laurent Koscielny’s header to show for it. But in the 2nd half it was all Fulham and the Gunners didnt even manager a single shot on target.

Its now clear that Wenger has to drop the deadwood.  Players like Almunia,Djourou, Squillaci, Rosicky, Arshavin, Chamakh need to be sold and replaced with fresh blood.

Lets hope that the penny has finally dropped and Wenger makes some signings this transfer window before we finish out of the top 5 and out of the Champions league place.

Hazard, Gotze, Podolski are the players we need.. But knowning Wenger he will go out and sign some 17 year olds or players like Silvestre!

£30m in the bank, Wenger has to now spend… its BUY BUY or BYE BYE Arsene

Arsenal Ratings
Szczesny 6.0 [very good game until he came and flapped for a cross and left his goal empty for Sidwell to score]
Mertesacker 6.5 [ Looked very good in the first half but a few mistakes in the 2nd half and crumbled]
Koscielny 7.5 [Scored our goal and at times looked fantastic]
Djourou 4.0 [ Was Senderos this bad?.. Sent off at 1-0 and then it all went wrong. Booked for a clumsy tackle and then it was only a matter of time before this clown was sent off]
Arteta 6.0 [ First half he played well but didnt get on the ball in the 2nd and the game passed him by]
Walcott 5.0 [His final ball is a joke. If he wants £85k a week he needs to show a hell of alot more then he currently is]
Ramsey 6.0 [Great pass for the goal and in the first half he played well. But not in the game at all in the 2nd and looked weak]
Song 6.5 [Gives away to many freekicks in dangerous area and gave the ball away to many times]
Coquelin 8.0 [ MOTM for me.. The kid played at Left back and didnt let us down]
Van Persie 6.0 [Not in the game at all, needs support]
Gervinho 4.5 [ Missed 2 early chances and his final ball was just as bad as Walcott. Really starting to worry me how many chances he misses.. Very poor tonight]

(Rosicky 65) 4.0 [Came on and gave the ball away]
(Squillaci 81) 4.0 [Came on and set up the winning goal]
(Benayoun 74) N/A

    I have said over and over. Wenger is the luckiest man in the world. He plays fantasy football and gets paid 7 million a year to screw up. Another abysmal cowardly performance. The old French lover: plenty of kissing but no penetration. Wenger has to go. Whenever there is a mutiny in a club the manager has to go. Thanks for the Invincibles but this team is a mid-table team. I am sick of his excuses. Vee haff belief. He was lucky with Henry, Viera, Pires etc. Now he has a team of idiots-stupid players. Walcott is a fool. Djourou and Diaby are fools. Chamakh a chicken with his head cut off. Arshavin. As Mourinho said, “Why should I get my Arse Shavin when I can buy two Brazilians?” Rosciky and Beneyoun past their use buy date. Ramsey is no play maker. Wenger the great strategist. His substitutions are always wrong. Bring back Henry. Yeah. Great move about ten years ago. What is he going to do? Win the Premier League for Arsenal? Please. More feel good froth and bubble. Where is Vela? We are missing Jack that is for sure. What a spineless team this is. While Gervinho and Walcott are dumb idiots at least they provide nuisance value. Ezpecially when the team is up 0-1 way from home and the home team chansing the game. Take VP off and leave the idiot Walcott up front for the counter attack as well as Gervinho. They persented more danger to Fulham than Benayoun and Rosciky. He just invited a siege mentality. Go for the sencond closing goal and do not invite the equaliser and therefore the winner. Just go and buy some players you idiot of a coach. I can coach Arsenal. Most fans could. Just play moving traingels on the ground in a measured way giong through the gears as necessary and swarm in attack and swarm in defence. Buy some players. Otherwise I may well have to drop my expectations that I am not watching Arsenal but Blackburn Rovers.

    i totaly agree with you, coquelin epressed me the kid can handle the ball yoo, im not just happy with the result but i can give credit to our youngstars, the other thing its time to sell out woods and bring in new fresh blood, by fresh blood i mean big names that can handle presure to for the whole 90 minutes, and who can make sure if come on from the bench they can bring change to the game not in future but as soon as posible.

    I’m kinda worried about our form, even with Henry coming in for a couple of months. Chelsea have been in poor form and look low on morale but they are still above us. If wenger doesn’t buy support for RVP and sort out our fullback situation i have a horrible feeling we will miss out on 4th this season because even shitty spuds are putting in better performances than us and i cant see them dropping more points than us……………………thats the whole damn problem when the muppets above us drop points and we are supposed to capatialise as per ****ing usual we drop points as well, i just got this sickening feeling (hope to be proved badly wrong) that we will miss out on the CL Spots this season.

    If that happens, we are truly ****ed, because we should have strengthened a long time ago, then everyone else around us will strengthen and then the targets we should be looking at wont wanna come to the team because we will not be able to offer them CL and will end up going to our rivals (that is if Wenger is even BOTHERING to try to get world class talent)

    It would suck to start falling out of CL contention at the last hurdle just as we are truly able to afford some good players. The whole imbalance of the squad needs addressing, top players being paid peanuts and we cant offer money that Worldclass players would desire, but yet we have the likes of chamakh and Squilaci on 50-60k PW utter WASTE of money especially when we have soooooooooo many teenagers that arent good enough for arsenal also boasting paychecks of 5-15k a week.

    For an economist, Wenger (or the board) seemingly are not being too intelligent about things that seem to stare everyone else in the face.

    Their clubs are supposedly asking 30 million for Hazard or Gotze, so how is Wenter supposed to buy those two plus Podolski?
    Yes we need some players and yes we need to clear some out, but even Players of the quality of Dembele, Zamora or Demsey would be an improvement over Rosicky, Walcott and Chamakh.
    And where is Ox Chamberlain, that boy is more than ready.

    ive had enough of Wenger so many excuses, and yet again blaming someone other than himself.The rubbish in player wise he has brought to our Great club in recent years is a total joke.He must go we will not win anything under him. He is a Loser and cant motivate the players we have.We need a fresh approach with new ideas ,Wenger has taken The Arsenal backwards in recent years and im not happy with the overated frenchman.

    Coquelin is a more complete version of Flamini in my opinion. The transfer window has only been open than for 48 hrs. The summer was more down to the board, this was shown on the final 3 days, when Wenger was demanding they signed Arteta. If anybody needs to know the real situation for the problems at Arsenal, you just have to look into the drama & details of that deal. Remember it was the board members ready to pull the plug on the deal and it was Wenger demanding and begging them to pay the amount asked for by Everton. Remember Gazidis had to travel to the far east to discuss transfer targets. Ever player who has left in the last two years have said don’t blame Wenger. Ricky Alvarez deal was more to do with the board and not paying the extra £2 million. The incidents and situations are pointing that the board are trying to do things on the cheap. The board don’t want to pay the big wages. Arsenal will not move anywhere until Usmanov is made owner & David Dien or his son is brought into the board room and Peter Hill-wood is given his P45. All the board want is Champions League football that is why the money for Mertesacker, Santos & Arteta was paid up.

    Changing the manager will not change a thing at Arsenal. The board is rotten to the core from Kronke, Gazidis and especially Peter Hill-Wood, who forced Kronke on them because Usmanov wanted to bring back Dein.

    I have to say wenger needs to go specsavers seriously. i watched the whole match i and for the life of me i cant understand how wenger can blame the ref. Firstly Djourou DESERVED to be sent off. i counted at least 4 times he was out of position Secondly Walcott his a joke hos so worried of Henry taking his shirt number that he cant do shit and he wants 85,000 a week you have to laugh. thirdly the centre back that came on well what can i say that some of u guys haven’t said. Foutth Gervinho NEED TO LEARN HOW TO shoot, how many times today and Rosicky’s time is up come on, he has nothing to offer arsenal and Ramsey i understand his young but seriously what was he doing today.

    SELL…SELL….SELL..its about time wenger should sell this players like djourou he is hopeless,Arshavin not interested in playin…etc…..and wenger pls train some players like Gervinho and Walcott how to shoot ..the game today we should have won unless n untill this boys learn how to shoot in goal….if this type of game carrys on the next 2 or 3 games then CL position is gone, our table will be in between 8 to 6 when the season finish…………….. you have the money now Wenger go out and get some big names players who can handle presure….

    For me its time 2 get rid of the deadwood we had on the field and if I had the choice of who to get rid of out of that bunch today it would be szczesny, ramsey and walcott to start with and must say I totally disagree on szczesny comment… He came out flapping on at least 3 occasions, we got lucky with the first 2 but got done the third time.. Personally I don’t like any of our current stock of goalkeepers, all good shot-stoppers but decision making is a joke and everytime it costs us dear.. Ramsey has been chasing shadows all season so far and has looked a championship player at best… Walcott???? Where do I start??? Well after 5 years at the club he has developed into a player with no workrate or end product to his game so what good is he??

  19. Craigie

    January 3, 2012 at 1:27 am

    Ramsey is probably the biggest weakness in our team. His passing is not precise, so a lot of the time he plays it in to the strikers/wingers feet or just behind, making them stop a second and completely ruining a counter attacking move. Over the course of a game, if he does this 4 times that could be 4 times someone gets through on goal and one of those might be a match winner. He tries to be Cesc, he tries to be complex and over elaborate and it fails and you can see it in him that he eventually gets shoved about so much he starts passing it short. I have faith in him as he is clearly growing but this role is FAR too much FAR too soon for him.

    Really disappointed with Walcott too. With the sale of key players, this was his chance to show why he should be the man but he isn’t. Critics are harsh on him but for me it’s fair. He has absolutely nothing to his game apart from pace, and the sad thing is he must have been the fastest player on the pitch in every game he’s played since he was 12 years old and he still does not know how to use his ONE ADVANTAGE? Look at the chance he missed against QPR, a bog average defender caught up with him from a 10 yard disadvantage and he had no composure to even hit the target with his preferred foot? He took several ridiculous shots today, plenty of hopeless crosses too. I don’t like to criticise our own players heavily, but all I’ve seen of him over the years is he can’t finish precisely, he can’t get a lot of power in a shot, he can’t dribble or run with the ball at his feet at all, he can’t cross, he’s not much of a passer and worst of all his work rate is atrocious. He just sits about on the wing waiting for someone to play him in but with no Cesc, the balls aren’t coming.

    You can say what you like about Gervinho but there is LOADS to his game, just his finishing is diabolical. If you look, a lot of the shots he ruined were with his left foot, and also if you look closer, he runs, makes space with the dribble and LOOKS FOR A MAN, and if nobody is open he will take a shot. We spent years moaning at players for not taking shots. I have no worries about him eventually becoming a big player for us.

    I don’t care about players like Djourou, it’s not his fault he gets picked when we have 5 better players injured, but Ramsey has gone on about being in the first team and Theo thinks he’s the man when he’s not.

    Could you ‘fans’ stop fucking giving out look at you, you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between Chelsea fans and you right now. Asking for a new manager every fucking time we lose! And forgetting what Wenger has done for the club. He is not the only person to blame as there are 11 players on the pitch for us no matter who he chooses to play, they have an more influence than Wenger does and they should take the majority of your blame.

    Then you say he better spend this time or he’s out. Number 1, you aren’t the board so you will never get a say in who gets the sack. Number 2, Who will he buy?… Podolski? where will he play? who will he replace? … Gervinho? Don’t forget it wasn’t more than a year ago we were so excited to see this speedster in Arsenal colours after he scored a brace against Koln. Who says Podolski wont turn out like Gervinho?… How about have him as a replacement for RvP? Are you fucking retarded? Who in their right mind would leave a guaranteed starting position to being back up to the best striker in the world?

    Firstly, Fulham’s not an easy place to go . and Great ball from Ramsey ? Lol , it was a deflected cross . What did you expect of Rosicky ? He had to play central and cover on the right at the same time . And Wenger is not going to go anyways , so stop with the moaning.

    I am fed up with people picking on our players when officials tend to cause our down fall. even chelsea with all the mega buys of Torres / Lukaku / Moreiles / Romeu / and Mata are struggling. You were shouting for Cahill and see how poor he is in Bolton. Even Real Madrid cant win with lousy officials. No one is commenting on the foul on Djourou which almost sprained his ankle yet we want them to operate like machines and not get injured. Is it normal when teams get close to Spurs and Manu there is always bad officiating. Sendros never got a card, hageland didnt either and sidwell. When barton gets a card poeple claim it is controvecial yet not one is saying Djourou’s first was as well as the dive since Gervinho’s was an even obvious foul than this one. Could not see Walcot doing better than Gervs. Gervs was better.

    Personally speaking,Wenger has himself and the refs to a lesser extent to blame for the Fulham loss.
    The Gervino tackle shd have been given a dc.Soccer analysysts ,mind you they are top class pros,said it was a clear penalty.Of course they had tv cameras.But even then I have seen refs in the same position as Probert give one.
    The thing that puzzles me is why didnt Fulham play like this against MU.Are they so scared of the red faced and his shadow?
    This is the halfway mark and everything to play for.Getting the cl berth could be the toughest in years.If Wenger thinks this lot of guys will ignite the gunners epl challenge next season,he shd think again.If nothing is done in the tw and the gunners continue to plod along,he could finally pay the price for slipping out of cl contention.
    Once you ar out it aint going to be easy to get back.Then he will be desperate,assuming he is still manager,to throw millions in the tm. Why not not do it now?

    As long as Wenger is the manager we will never win a single European Champion League. He is a medicore manager with little stategy and will never able to bring us to next level.

    Ferguson, Mouinho and Guardiola are the real proven champion managers.

    Did I see one retard say sell Secezeny. We have a goalkeeper who Man Utd fans are jealous that we have him in goal. Plus we have only conceded 5 goals at home this season and take away the massacre at Old Trafford, our goal against away will nearly be the same. The problems are not in the defence or in goal, our problems are going forward and especially on the bench. The good news is Wilshere is on the mend.

    Secezney is a fine young keeper. I am sure he will improve. My only problem is Wenger. He is one of the best in the business, but his lack of practicality is harming him. He could have sub Djourou before the red. We all saw the red card coming. Why didn’t he act to prevent the tiring players going down 10 men. People say its the board it’s the board. Why can’t wenger stand up to them? Now he has come out and say he wont buy a striker but rather take henry on loan and how xyz is coming back. We had those XYZ before but fell short last time. If he deflect the blame to the board, they would cave in because the fans would crucify them. If they are the problem, then he is sure making them feel comfortable.

    Here they are again – waiting for an Arsenal defeat to talk shit!

    And what shit.
    For Ramsey you say – Great pass for goal. Really? Your internet connection must be fuzzy because his cross was deflected luckily and looped to Koscielny by mistake. If you were there (or ever went to a real game to see things properly) you would know facts like this.

    Mertesacker crumbled??? When exactly? He was excellent throughout, must’ve had a 90% succesful pass rate too and that includes his clearance headers.

    Walcott’s final ball is a joke – yeah, thats right, follow the sheep the say the same shit. Who has the most assists for Arsenal this season? Who is in the top 5 assists of the Prem this season? WALCOTT! The truth is that Walcott delivers about 70% of his crosses in very dangerous areas but we too often lack the forward (fox in the box) to put them away.

    And of course the classic -‘Hazard Goetze Podolski are the players we need’! Brilliant Einstein! Just the £100m then. And out of interest, how do you play a midfield of Hazard Goetze & Wilshere? top reading the tabloids and sprouting what everyone says like some kind of gullible parrot and formulate your own thought in your own tiny little brain.

    Arsenal are without fullbacks. That has cut our attacking options by a third.
    We need a striker. Not Podolski! Have you ever seen Podolski at a big club? He can’t hack it. He is the Darren Huckerby of German football – looks fantastic as a big fish in a small club but invisible at a big club.

    Arsenal need someone like Sakho at the back who can play as a CB and a LB
    We need a striker like …. Defoe, weirdly. A goalscorer out and out. Not a No.10. A No.9. A pre-injury Eduardo would score 30 goals in this Arsenal team.

    Anyway, keep talking shit and waiting for the next defeat to have a pop. Been quiet for since the Spuds defeat haven’t you.

    Get a life some of you, it’s one defeat !! ….. Let’s be honest here …. Fulham deserved the win yesterday. In the second half they were all over us and this was BEFORE JD (why is he in an Arsenal shirt) started his stupidity, his fouls were down to his inability to cope with the pressure mounting on him. For me, the only players who put a shift in yesterday were Coquelin, Kos, Ramsey and Song. Theo and Gerv both put their boots on the wrong feet before kickoff, Arteta wasn’t in the game at all and might as well of stayed in the dressing room, RVP looked tired. In the second half especially there was no passion from the team and sadly, no one on the bench that could instil that passion or turn the game back in our favour. Chamakh and Arsh don’t deserve a place on the bench, give the Ox, Park (if he’s any good) and Ryo a go, they can’t do any worse …….. lets not get all negative on Arsene just because of one defeat, but lets ship out the dross and get in some quality, or at least give the young quality we have a chance to shine …..

  41. Chris Doyle

    January 3, 2012 at 9:51 pm

    Mr. Wenger, what kinda proof you need from Theo, he is a sprinter not footballer. Some time he runs over the ball, or sometimes ball runs over him. Even after playing so many games, he cannot send in a decent cross. Mr Wenger you need to give Alex Chamb the chance to shine or sign a new quality winger with a footballing brain not a sprinter. You also need to sign a quality striker, the game would have been over by half time, if we had a decent finisher in the box. Think before its too late and this season is also over like previous years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
