  • We can all be pointed at when it comes to stupid comments. Comparing our win at Villa to the prospect of beating Bayern would be ridiculous though.

    The team seems to be filled with central midfield players, all playing different roles. Wilshere, Cazorla, Diaby, Arteta. Rosicky & Arshavin, who can play wing are not up to scratch. Walcott & Ox are now listed as strikers. Gervinho is useless. Pod plays better in a 4-4-2. Giroud in a 4-4-1-1 or a 4-3-3. Coquelin is our only DM.

    Wenger seems to have played and developed a team of players who do not have strict positions on the pitch. This is a huge problem in my book as I don't think they are intelligent enough to learn the rules for more than one position. Footballers in general are a bit thick.

    • "Gervinho is useless" - but, according to Pixie, he's still bedding in. After all, he's only made 50+ appearances for Arsenal.

      • .Gervinho is still 'bedding in' and is certainly not as terrible as he is being painted...

        'Gervinho, started well then left for the ACN in December 2011, returning in February 2012 after his side reached the final, losing on penalties. Wenger commented at the time that Gervinho was suffering from fatigue.

        Season 2012-2013, appearances have been sporadic with periods of injury,9 Prem starts and 3 goals. Now away, at the ACN and doing rather well...


        I seem to recall you arguing that 'Van Persie is NOT 'world class', just before he bent over for filthy lucre and joined your chosen team of the moment, glory supporter.

        Why, your footballing insight really is something to behold.

    • Aren't you being just a little unfair with some of your remarks John? "Footballers in general are a bit thick"? "Some" I can accept, but "in general" smacks of 'I know better the AW. And I also think there are footballers out there who may very well take exception to your remark. Its all very well sitting at home, without any experience whatsoever, of football management, spouting your opnions. But a completely different thing all together having to get out there and do it. I doubt very much John you would last 5 minutes under the pressure AW has to face everyday. You get up in the morning and think how your day is going to go, and plan for it without any fear of being contradicted. The other side of the world out there is very different. More especially in the world of Pro Football.You can at the very least, show a little more respect for that, if nothing else.

      • Indeed, and all the while John sits in the stands and 'Boos' the team he is supposedly 'supporting' whilst pouring scorn upon anyone with a more positive view.

        Still, John knows best.

      • Hi James,

        Sorry if my comment met with your disapproval. I wasn't suggesting that Wenger was thick, or that every footballer was, merely that when you consider what we read on a regular basis about a lot of footballers, it doesn't surprise me when they do stupid things.

        I have never professed to knowing better than AW, merely that when you consider all that has been said, that there must be some managers out there that do know better. The world of football has moved on in the last ten years. I'm not sure Wenger has.
