Major surgery needed but where and how?

It was obvious last night that the Arsenal team contained players that either did not do their job or were not up to the required standard.

The team lacked creativity and forward thrusts from midfield. Something that Ramsey would have provided in abundance. Sadly dozy Ozil failed miserably once again. The man is past it I tell you. He can’t do it any more and this has been

Note to Emery: The biggest mistake you can make is to repeat it.

The obvious strategy for Emery and Arsenal is of course to not prioritise one of the two routes to CL status for next season. Not unless one becomes out of reach.

You can say that for both options Arsenal’s fate is in its hands. There are 4 PL games and 3 Europa league games left so the task in terms of number of games is about the same. But which of the two is the harder to

Change of players or change of attitude against Watford?

This game against Watford is the most crucial game for Arsenal in the race for the CL spots.

Loose it and to all intends and purposes you are out of the race for the top four. This is because the dreadful away form that all media and pundits are correctly talking about will become the norm of what to expect from Arsenal for the rest of the remaining games. And the remaining

We are due to return to the much awaited final run in for the Premier League with the title winner left to be decided, the three relegation places to be confirmed and of course the remaining third and fourth CL places hotly contested by four teams. 

Everyone including journalists are voicing and writing their opinion about who they think will finish in the 3rd and 4th places.

The two Arsenal defensive stats that will surprise you

It seems that last week’s results all went for Arsenal. And this hasn’t happened for a long, long time.

First was Spurs doing a Spursy and collapsing in the second half at Southampton, loosing a game which they fully dominated in the first half. In fact so unexpected was their capitulation that I was off my arm chair celebrating like any Southampton fan.

Then it was Arsenal’s

When will Kroenke sell?

Arsenal’s self sustaining financial model requires that a large proportion of any surpluses created can be reinvested back into the club. It therefore minimises the chances of injection of capital by the owner unless of course he opts to do so. Which of course does not look likely.

This would have been less of a worry in past times, when the large benefactors, pumping enormous

Where have Arsenal’s number 10s gone?

What has been glaringly obvious is that Arsenal’s defence has been its Achilles heel not just this season but at least during the last 10 years of Wenger’s reign. Wenger was incapable of correcting it either through new additions or by allowing others more adept than him to coach the defenders.

Emery has also done nothing of significance as yet, as Arsenal’s defensive record is

Xhaka has received his customary one match ban and now he will miss the upcoming clash against Man Utd. What are the options available?

Let’s look at Ramsey because due to his incredible performance against Spurs he has shown that he may merit a starting birth in the team. 

He had a wonderful second half against Spurs and that was because he was played at the number 10

Merson’s expectations for the NLD and the players reaction?

The band wagon has been going on for days now. They are all predicting a comfortable win for Spurs in the first NLD for Emery.

Paul Merson in his comments on Sky Sports clearly favours Spurs but still comes out with a prediction for a draw (1 1)! 

He is implying that we are still getting lucky and that it is about time it will run out. A team like Spurs will, in his mind,

Emery has only corrected 2 out of 5 weaknesses needed if Arsenal are to sustain current form

I don’t know if you’ve noticed but we have yet to watch an Emery pre match press conference live transmitted on Arsenal.com.

This was a Thursday morning ritual under Wenger which we all looked forward to. But alas it is to be no more, until further notice.

This is so according to official Arsenal policy communicated to me after enquiring as to why we are no longer privileged

The formation to get the best out of Ozil

There is only one formation and position that Mr Emery should adopt with regard to Ozil for Saturday’s game against Chelsea. And it is not that which he opted for in the match against City.

That had two drawbacks. 

The first was that Ozil was deployed on the left side of the forward line which did not allow him to dictate and play his usual game of intelligent passing. It is

I desisted communicating my anger and scathing criticism right after the City match as I was too disappointed and angry.

Now two days later the anger has gone but my disappointment is still there. And the reason is that almost all our obvious failings were avoidable and the reason they were avoidable is down to the ineptitude of the Coach.

Let’s start:

Unai Emery proved inept

To be honest I haven’t seen enough to convince me, during pre season so far, that the players are putting into practice what Emery has been preaching in his press conferences so far.

He has been talking, sensibly so, that he considers it as important to be alert not only when in possession but when we loose the ball.

Although the signing of Socrates Papastathopoulos from Dortmund is considered a done deal a new offer from a Chinese team is on the table.

It can be revealed that Arsenal’s offer to Socrates is an annual salary of 5.5m pounds which equates to about 106,000 per week, for a three year contract. 

Greek site Sport24.gr is reporting that the offer from the unnamed Chinese club is

I am glad that VAR’s introduction into the PL has been put off till next year. It needs to be tried and tested a lot more than what has been attempted so far and it would have caused havoc with the enjoyment of the game by the millions round the world paying to watch it every week.
