If there are still any out there!
I was shocked by the result at Old Trafford but what did we really expect fielding a team without suspended Gervinho and Song and Frimpong and injured Vermaelen, Sagna and Gibbs?
Now we have lost Jenkinson!
We have played 3 Premier league games, conceded 10 goals and scored 2.
We also played 2 qualifying games in The Champions league with a sending off there as well. We had two holding a suspension from last season and it has to be said that Arsenal football club are the world’s dirtiest team by far and should in all honesty not be included in professional football at all.
Arsenal football club is a disgrace to world football, there has never been a club as far as I know who have a disciplinary record as bad as ours. I have never known a football club to have had two players and their Manager suspended in the first game of a new competition and I have also not heard of a team after 3 premier league games to have 4 player suspended.
I believe I have just highlighted the fact that Arsenal now has the dirtiest team in the world and it can only get worse!
Our manager may still get a 3 match ban for not complying with UEFA rules in our Champions League match whilst banned, Wenger had discarded those rules and will now be assessed by Panel in the UEFA, which will undoubtedly rule against Arsenal.
After all let’s face it if Wenger flaunts the rules, he must off course be punished which really needs to be highlighted, as Arsenal get away with blue murder.
Now in my view and by looking at Arsenals record, Arsenal are in the wrong and should be hit with a very hefty fine and be warned severely that this kind of behaviour cannot be tolerated.
It may take exclusion from the competitions for it to completely sink in, maybe a ban for 3 seasons would be fair, seeing how UEFA usually do everything in three’s to make their decisions perfectly clear.
We must now analyze the game against United and find out what went wrong. To start with Chesney was at fault with most of the goals and is not as safe as many have said in support of him, how can a keeper be lobbed whist standing on his line, the answer to this question is that the goalkeeper is not up for the job and Arsenal must look elsewhere.
I said in a previous post, that Chesney is not the finished article. He may still cost us lots of points and must only be used just as a stand in. Many will say that Wenger is at fault for not buying experienced players, that’s a fair point but they will have to be assessed as our new signings are obviously not disciplined enough and could quite easily be the next suspended player.
The 3 teams we have played have had none of their players suspended, so our disciplinary record will have to be rectified immediately as we are running out of players fast.
8.2 is a humiliating defeat, it’s so bad that managers have been sacked in the past for lesser scores!
Wenger will also need to look for a penalty taker we don’t get to many but when we do they need to be converted and Robin’s effort was woeful, an embarrassment to the travelling fans! Van Persie must feel ashamed at that effort, low and slow was just what the United keeper needed and the prolific Van Persie duly obliged.
I am still in shock and still cannot take in the result, Cesc was worth 40 million how much must Rooney be worth?
We must hold our hands up and surrender, ask the FA to put us in an easier league!
Our fans are silent we cannot fill out stadium and we can’t afford new players so why continue?
Let’s pack it all in and play golf or a nice peaceful cricket match whilst having a beer in the outfield!
Why waste our time when it’s clear that our team are just not up to the task!
Now that has all been said, let’s look at this sensibly!
Three players suspended and many injured mising through injury yetserday and we have had to field reserves in many of the positions.
United couldn’t have played us at a better time and that always amazes me, so much so that it seems that this is not a coincident.
We are a footballing side, we are not known as a tough guy team and we are also known as not a dirty side but our record would show different.
Top players would look at that game and not want to join us but would jump at the chance to join United.
I suggest foul play; I don’t know why and don’t know who benefits!
I only know that the five games we have played since the start of the season and the sendings off we have suffered have been shocking.
At Newcastle, we managed to draw with a man sent off. Against Liverpool we were never going to lose that game until the sending off but a build up of suspensions in 3 games made it virtually impossible to hold out against the best team in the league.
It has become the norm for Arsenal supporters to see our players sent off.
Look at the second leg against Barcelona and the Robin sending off which again handed the match to Barcelona.
You understand what I’m saying?
Somebody has it in for us and this is the way it’s done, suspensions!
Enough suspensions will defeat even the best teams in the world but do they get them?
Maybe 1 or 2 in a season but us, we pick them up in every game and we are no more physical than anybody else.
In every game we have ever had with United they get 3 to our 1of free kicks against us, usually just outside our box in a central position.
I expect them in every game and the referee never disappoints me, is this a coincidence?
I don’t think so, It will come out later on I’m sure but there is something wrong and it stinks.
Is it because of Wenger? I believe so but why? I don’t know.
I’m convinced this spell won’t change all the time Wenger is in charge but hey what do I know.
United used to get a penalty every time we played them but when we showed the stats they stopped and our suspensions started but you tell me are we a dirty side.
Our boys got hammered out there yesterday but still tried to go forward.
Young guys that showed heart – yes it was a bad defeat but also commendable.
