Arsenal FC Latest News

Okay, so I've been away for a while...

It's been work, school, more work, more school...but, I've got a bit of time now to do one of my favourite things - Talk about Arsenal FC.

As you know and have probably heard, there's been a lot of bottle-necks, cut-throat activities and "buy-me-please"/"sell-me-please" pleas in the English Premier League transfer market. And, as you again probably know, Arsene Wenger has again refused, partially, to heed my advice, advances, pleas, begs, howlers, screams, errr...I'm sure you get the picture.

Arsenal football club has bought a couple of quality players but that doesn't seem to really solve our main problem. Our defence.

Buying Oliver Giroud (striker), Lucas Podolski (striker) and, after much insult and pleadings, Yann M'Vila who is a fantastic defensive mid-fielder (We have yet to confirm this,but, allow me to dream a little) does not solve out defensive problems.

If Arsene Wenger is so much of an attack-minded manager he should at least invest in fast and physically intimidating central defenders with a high concentration attribute. Look at Per Mertesacker for instance, he is always so much in a state of rewind/slow motion that our opponents would have scored before he even realises that he's been asked to play in defence. I had to tell fellow fans this hard truth on on-line Arsenal which is one of my favourite all arsenal forums.

No offence to my fellow Arsenal FC fans but, right now, it's so easy to score against Arsenal because of our style of play and the lack of pace and coordination of our defence. Let me give you a quick illustration of the way my team (Arsenal FC) plays games, both home and away... the street article cropper is not allowing all of information in, oh well! I hope you can figure enough out to get my gist.

Look at Roberto Di Matteo, the guy was practically playing a 10 man defensive network for Chelsea FC, see where that got them, the Champions League! I have said this before and I will keep on saying it, Roberto Mancini.

At the beginning of the season, I remember that I made mention of Roberto Mancini's tactics. He mentioned that he would rather win a game 1-0 than win a game 3-2 which is, exactly how Arsene Wenger plays his football matches. Has it not dawned on him that Arsenal FC is the only top flight club with as much goal deficit as the bottom five clubs?

This Premier league transfer season isn't over yet, let's see how will our fortunes change if we sort out our defence.

Thanks Shawn. Although a lot of people view football/soccer as 22 grown men chasing a rubber ball, it's one of the most passionate games on the planet.
