Arsenal Fans Getting Impatient With Wenger

Posted by admin

Arsenal fans are beginning to lose patience with the professor and a home defeat to Spurs is just the sort of thing to add fuel to the fire.

Despite the attractive passing game that Arsene Wenger continues to deliver the obvious lack of a top quality goalkeeper and strong centre back remains their downfall.  It is a problem that  has been clear to all for quite a while without anything being done about it by the manager.  At most clubs being 3rd and just 2 points off the top would be considered a great start to the season but at Arsenal the expectations are much higher.  Also they have already lost 3 home games this season which is unthinkable and nobody would have expected.  The lack of steel was evident as Arsenal surrendered a two goal lead to lose 3- 2 and it was clear they needed somebody to rally the troops and didn’t have the character on the pitch.

Surely he will be forced to do something in the January window though it seemed odds on that he buy a goalkeeper in the summer and he let the chance slip by. He is 2 players away from being good enough to win Premiership and he must know that.  The question is will he do anything about it ?

Arsene Wenger is his own man and isn’t forced into making decisions to be popular or because they are commonly held views but any more slips will force his hand as the tide of opinion grows against him on the terraces at the Emirates.

Change of Fortunes for Top Teams

Posted by admin

It is absolutely amazing the difference 2 or 3 matches can have on  the expectations of a Premiership football team. Only a couple of weeks ago Liverpool were right in the doldrums with their new manager, Roy Hodgson, rumoured to be having the door shown to him after only a extremely brief stay.  Now, having had a few fortunate wins under their belts they somehow discover some form to beat Chelsea  2 – 0 and deservedly so. A very solid performance which thoroughly deserved the 3 points must have felt very sweet to the Liverpool hardcore after such a terrible start to their campaign.

Contrast Liverpool to Manchester City, who must be under the moon, who have just been on a 3 game losing run ,whilst without Tevez, after a promising start and Tottenham giddy from the heights of thrashing Inter Milan to defeat at  Bolton and we seem to be on for an unpredictable but interesting season with very few results assurred.  Even at the other end of the league there is not a side that looks definitely doomed. The sides that have come up are doing remarkably well with Blackpool entirely unpredictable but more than holding their own.

Arsenal have already lost 2  games at The Emirates this season which is very surprising. With the exception of Manchester United and Chelsea ,who look like pulling away,  the rest will race for 3rd and 4th spot  which looks to be the most interesting this season as was the race for 4th last season.

Now the pressure is on Arsenal , Spurs and Manchester City to come back with results to continue  their expected challenge and to juggle their squads effectively to cope with all the extra fixtures european football puts their way.

This could very well be the most open season for a while with such an equal field.

Isn’t it great to be a Spurs fan ?

Posted by admin

The world is in chaos today with flights grounded , the general election nonsense going on and an armed robbery just down the road.  But all is well in the world because Spurs gave the Arsenal a beating for the first time in years.  It could only have been better if Sol Campbell had been sent off and Wenger had claimed it wasn’t fair.   Actually he was unusually gracious in defeat this time to his credit.

The difference in attitude of the Spurs players from Sunday to Wednesday was huge. Instead of the pedestrian arrogance of a team that thought it only had to turn up to win there was a work ethic and determination that was a  joy to behold.  I loved every moment even though Arsenal had much of the possession.  From the moment Danny Rose rocketed Spurs into an early lead they always looked in control keeping Arsenals intricate passing far enough away from Gomes for him to get out his deckchair.

Bale and Modric were splendid, King and Dawson super strong and everybody else without exception dogged and determined.

When Bale scored  a well taken side foot into the corner soon after half time Spurs looked even more  comfortable and in wasn’t until Arsenal brought on Van Persie that there was any threat to the Spurs goal.

Van Persie made a big difference and had 3 efforts spectacularly saved in the last ten minutes by official man of the match Gomes.  He carved out the goal which Bendtner scored with five minutes to go.  The Spurs fans had to live on their nerves for another 9 minutes before erupting intoscenes of delirious pleasure.

Now the big ask to go do it again on Saturday against Chelsea  probably without Ledley King.  But why not?  Spurs won this fixture last season so it is not as unlikely as the pundits would have us believe.
