Defeat Gives Fuel To Agendas. #Arsenalout

Here is an extract from something somewhere on the internet ,written by someone. The full post can be read in the comments section of the previous post at 4:05 pm. I highly recommend that you go back and read it.

 

 

“This is the dilemma which Arsenal fans here find themselves in. They are obsessed with Wenger out, board out, and majority shareholder out mentality such that they do not miss the slightest of opportunities to demonize the manager, club and the majority shareholder. That is why most of the criticisms levelled against the team following the Liverpool game were contradictory. For them the objective is to find something to blame the manager for.
The following are the contradictions in the criticisms:

(1) The team should not have set back in the face of Liverpool marauding attacks. But when they did that Liverpool did not have clear cut goal scoring opportunities, when Olivier decided to retain possession by passing to a heavily marked Gibbs possession was lost resulting in a Liverpool goal.
(2) Team did not have counter tactics to deal with Liverpool offensive play. But despite Liverpool dominance the team maintained shape defensively resulting in Liverpool having few chances, is that not a sufficient counter strategy?
(3) Wenger did not have tactics to deal with Lallana, Coutinho, and Sterling. Why is it that Coutinho had to score because of Giroud’s reckless play rather than Liverpool’s superb build up play with the dominance they had?
(4) Wenger made wrong subs in removing Giroud for Francis. So we should have kept an offence player when we needed to defend our lead? Between Olivier, and Danny and Alexis who puts least shift defensively? The same story goes for the replacement of Alexis with Nacho. The club needed to defend what it had. The offensive players had not offered much going forward anyway.
(5) Wenger should have put Walcott in. Really? What is Walcott’s defensive record apart from his pace going forward? Are you not the same people who have been complaining that Campbell was not getting game time? Why complain when he has been given one?
(6) Flamini should have been subbed. Really? The team is defending for dear life and you want your defensive players subbed.
(7) Szczesny was rash to come out when the ball was lobbed behind the defenders. Are you serious? If he had stayed back Sterling would have controlled the ball with no pressure and scored. As it turned out Sterling had to scoop away the ball from Szczesny with his hand because of pressure.

I can go on and on about the contradictions in the criticisms. This clearly shows that it’s more about the agenda than team performance which brings all these reactions. Unfortunately organizations are not run on the basis of irrational reactions by stakeholders but facts. As long as you continue to shun facts for these self serving agendas you will forever remain hurt by decisions that are made by the club. You can go on social media to denigrate the club, and become resident callers and writers to PL fanzone as one Mcbernard (or something like that) from South Africa has been ranting on today’s program, claiming that if he sits on the Arsenal bench the team will do wonders, but that will not change anything. At the end of the day you will become a perennial moaner not only in matters football but in other aspects of your life. Here in Zimbabwe we say an empty vessel makes the most noise so once I start seeing and hearing all those hate filled rants I make my conclusion.

Digest that.”

 

PS. That reminds me, spare a thought for ZimPaul and is family over the Xmas period. I will be a sad time for them. I miss him and he barely touched my life.

  1. AFC players should just know better than to react… many of our red cards are from retaliatiions… we should just know better by now

  2. Don’t know you yet Eduardo but thanks for your unconditional support of the team. I could only listen to the UK Radio 5 commentary while driving an elderly relative home so have an incomplete sense of the game and I guess that should I see what Twitter has to say a home win will give few much satisfaction. My take is that it is a flipping excellent 3 points and I am delighted. Bring on West Ham, especially now that TR7 is back in town.

  3. As good as Alexis is and as good as he played today, he don’t half mess up some great opportunities with his greedy play, he just tries to beat too many men, especially when we have others in support wide of him, today when it was 2-1 we had a great break, Alexis beat a couple of men, Welbeck was wide of him on the left and we had someone running wide right, but Alexis tried to beat two more men and lost the ball, a simple pass right or left and we were in with a great chance to finish the game.

    Not surprised to see Wenger mention in his press call Alexis being a bit too greedy at times

  4. Seeing as its Christmas maybe its the right time to mention the 3 unwise men Anthony Taylor, Lee Mason and Martin Atkinson, woeful, inept and corrupt might be better names for them, in no particular order.

  6. yeah am seeing that great vision of 3rd on goal diff and thinking that is as a great way to set off on the second half of the season – we are there and thereabouts as per usual.

  9. the next two games are going to be extremly difficult, two away games at clubs above us one a derby and still with many players missing. Six points would be a massive show of intent for the second part of the season but in any other season we would probably be happy with four and even content with two. Thats not because of the two teams involved but the form they have showed this season. why would anyone expect 3 points at southampton when we only got a point there last year and the circumstances were more in our favour. i’m not saying i dont think we are more than capable of beating these teams just its not a given.
    Alexis passing has been the same all season and i have commented on it many times. I believe the injuries meaning the constant changing of the team has not allowed him to form connections with the rest of the team yet and when he does he has about 25% to add to his game if he doesnt i’ll understand why barca sold him as to them possesion is everything and he plays with the possesion banner hanging on a string
    lastly ive got to say old arry got a cheek complaing about Kierans challenge when the ref gave his players so much all game and when you time waste when your 1-0 down you dont derserve anything not only in that game but all season.I can honestly say thats the worst team ive seen all season and they need to thank oliver for not being on the end of an absolute spanking
