Problems must be solved if we’re to be taken seriously

Well in the aftermath of the Reading game in the Capital One Cup, much has been said, words have been exchanged and tempers did flare.

For the Arsenal fans, it was a night that can never be forgotten, not today, not ever.

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, this Arsenal team has a good team spirit, but it just so happens that spirit is usually temporary, and we seem to panic in almost every game we play.

Trust me; I wouldn’t be saying this if I had not studied this team well and got my facts right. The fact is, in almost every game this season, Arsenal have conceded first and lost a game, or come from behind to win a game. There is a reason for everything, and therefore the aforementioned surely has got a cause.

The real reason as to why we do concede first is because we usually struggle to impose ourselves in the first 20-25 minutes. There’s a lot of panic in our play characterised by some misplaced passes and poor marking.

The four goals we conceded in the first 20 minutes against Reading is a prime example. Needless to say, we need to deal with these issues if we are to beat our fellow heavy weights, starting with Manchester United on Saturday.
