Arsenal FC

Hopefully, Arsenal's match this weekend will see them book an automatic slot in the champion’s league. We would have done a lot better though if Arsene had listened to me and hired me as a Transfer Market consultant at the Emirates; comon! I'm not that expensive! I mean, all my predictions and promptings (while watching the matches with my mates, oh well! you would think that with all this talk of predictions and promptings I would be a board member by now -rolling my eyes.) have made absolute financial and tactical sense.

For instance, when Thierry Henry was let loose by Barcelona, I personally told Arsene (in my sleep) to pick up this guy for cheap, but no! he picks up M.Chamakh instead. When Viera was on the fringes at Inter, I was like, dude, open yer' eyes!!! But again, no! And Viera goes on to score over 11 goals for Manchester City. Ever since Gilberto and Viera left the DMF (Defensive Mid - Field), well, you know... no offence Song but having those guys around would have made you extra world class.

Ever since the 'French Connection' ( this was the combination of Thierry Henry, Silvian Wiltord, Robert Pires and Viera as Forawrds, Wing-men and Defensive men) dispersed, Arsenal has really never been the same again. I understand Arsene's need to develop players but, what better way is there than to encourage them to shadow more experienced players? Look at Van Persie and Fabregas who got the opportunity to be mentored by some of these men in the 'French Connection'; see what they've become - outstanding players.

Wenger goes into the transfer market splurging on mid-fielders and forward men but I think the fact that his defence is barely holding up and that his side are one of the top clubs conceding the most goals seems to have eluded him. He should take cue form Roberto Mancini who stated at some point in one of his interviews that he was better off winning by one goal and not conceding any than winning by five goals and conceding three goals. Mancini practically bagged our best central defender in the person of Kolo Toure. He has got Kolarov, Zabaleta, Micah Richards, Vincent Kompany and Lescott, some of the best defenders in the English Premiership; of course he can make a statement like that! Wenger on the other hand...

I every manager has his style, some are cautious and patient tacticians, some are attacking and pressing like Wenger but please, sort your defence, if you've got no clue, like I said before, hire me. (*wink*)

As Gunners prepare for their match, let’s hope they'll have consistency and composure in front of goal. And maybe, just maybe, hire me next season.
