It was another frustrating day at Villa Park on Saturday. We drew with a team who’s a**’ were whooped 5-0 by Man City a week before which makes you wonder what’s wrong with Arsenal?
We created very minimal chances, with the best probably falling to Laurent Koscielny, who hit the ball over the bar with his weaker foot from six-yards out.
Contrary to what people are saying, I feel Aaron Ramsey produced a good display and gave it his all.
I’m not a big fan of Theo Walcott, but his presence was missed. He offers us pace down the flank and because of this can latch on to any through balls played to him, unlike Olivier Giroud. We should give the speedy basterd what he wants because he’s very crucial to the team.
Per Mertesacker was my MOTM. The German defender brings a lot of calmness to our back-line.
But in whole it wasn’t a sufficient performance from our boys.
In other news, we’ve been linked with a move for Liverpool winger Stewart Downing. But if he can’t get into Liverpool’s starting eleven, how will he get into the Arsenal set up.
Arsene Wenger is ‘losing it’ day by day. At times I feel as if we should sign a sporting director, like the way Real Madrid did. Someone whose responsibility is to sign players, as Wenger continues to frustrate in this area.
The January transfer window will be a really crucial time for Arsenal football club – it’ll determine whether we’ll finish in the top for or not, in my opinion.
Let’s hope Le Prof will acquire some top-notch players during the winter to aide our cause/
I love Arsenal and Wenger, but the current crop of players at the club can’t guarantee us a top four finish, not if recent results are to go by.
