Wenger Rule Change To Put Arsenal Back At The Top?
Arsene Wenger is believed to have written to world footballs governing body FIFA proposing a set of rule changes that would revolutionise the modern game as it is known. If Wengers ideas are accepted, they will not only signify the biggest changes to association football since its invention in 1996, but also restore Arsenal to their rightful place at the head of Europe’s footballing elite.
The combined age of our three centre backs was 96 Ratings
Sorry this is a bit late. Frankly it was awful to watch. Arsenal were all over the place defensively, surprise surprise, and were very slow and one-dimensional going forward. We are so, so lucky that Southampton only scored one, we were able to equalise and none of our league rivals won either. We got away with one really.
Ozil MotM Arsenal v Manchester United: Ratings
Saw the best and worst of us here. Some brilliant attacking play, more often than not thwarted by the outstanding David De Gea, and some horrific defending. We battered United today but we were never going to come back after giving them a 2-0 head start, particularly with De Gea in goal. All-in-all, not too disheartened but very frustrated. Concerned about Koscielny, Xhaka and the wing backs though, which, when you throw in the potential costs of replacing Ozil and Alexis, means we could have a long hard summer on our hands.
Fantastic Ozil MotM v Huddersfield - Ratings
We played some excellent stuff at times, but also had some really sloppy moments as well. Ozil was fantastic. Two points clear of Liverpool, four points clear of Spurs. Big game against United on Saturday.
Mustafi MotM Ratings v Burnley
Not pretty but a big three points Spurs, Liverpool and Chelsea all dropped points. Thought we really missed Ozil today. I would've started Wilshere personally. Iwobi really disappointed.
Poor Performance Wins Group Player Ratings
Really poor quality game. We dominated possession and were mostly comfortable but lacked any cutting edge or end product, and were punished from the penalty spot.
Ozil MotM Player Ratings v Spurs
With our recent form against Spurs/ top sides in general, and all the talk this week of a "power shift", Mike Dean and a Saturday lunchtime kick off, I won't deny that I was dreading this one. After seeing the starting eleven, however, I was lifted. Mustafi back at centre back instead of Mertesacker or Coquelin, the Alexis-Lacazette-Ozil front three, and Welbeck back on the bench. I now felt strangely confident.
Player Ratings v City
Quoted before the game: "the best way to beat City is to attack" So Wenger picked five defenders.
Future of Wenger Ball, Creativity, Youth & Unpredictably
The formation of Premier League in 1992 and the arrival of Eric Cantona dragged English Football into the modern tactical football and transform defensive 3-5-2 into attacking and entertaining 4-4-2 or 4-4-1-1 with No. 10 playing between the lines. Worldclass No. 10 likes Eric Cantona, David Ginola, Zola, Bergkamp and Juninho transformed English Football with their technical skillset, spatial awareness and football brain into a pass-and-move game .
Youngsters impress Vets go backwards Ratings v Norwich
Arsenal were by no means the better team. Norwich even played the more attractive football. Too many below average players at this club, and they are taking up time youngsters could be getting. Theo was a huge waste of space.
