Yes let us
talk about the plain facts here, we have played 4 games so far winning just
two, losing one and draw one. Which we have made a total of seven points
occupying the 5th position on the premier league table so far. That is a very
poor performance for a top team like Arsenal.
issue is not as if we are not having great players, in fact we have one of the
best team in the premier league right now, from the attacking line to midfield
and even the defence though not convince yet by the defencing line. The main
problem is player selections, yes the player selection is wrong.
So if I said
the player selection is wrong that means am automatic saying the coach tactics
is wrong. Unia Emery’s strategies is very wrong, at least it is not working for
Arsenal, he has to revisits his drawing sheet and correct some few things mostly
from the midfield.
So these are
facts so far that has affect the gunners games put together by us here from Gunnersnews
Without the Creative Midfielders or a Play Maker
midfielder has always been the hardest working person on the pitch, in the
modern day football.
So who is a
Play maker or a Creative Midfielder?
is a player who controls the flow of the team’s offensive play, and is often
involved in passing moves which lead to goals, through their vision, technique,
ball control, creativity, and passing ability.
be always more versatile than any other players in the field with the ability
to play in different positions effectively and increased agility.
Now back to
Arsenal, Back to Unai Emery’s Issues.
his key man Granit Xhaka who goes around kicking people and getting booked. Matteo
Guendouzi is a up and rising star, he is a good player, he found a great pass
for the equaliser against Tottenham on Sunday 1st September 2019,
but you cannot rely on him or Lucas Torreira to do the work of a play maker.
has defiantly missed that strategy there with the midfield player.
Guendouzi and Torreira, The Gunners have three players who are not creative or
are not a playmaker but yet he plays them together, no offence but I just
wonder what he is thinking.
one of the best front three lines. There are as good as any other Top team in
the Premier League or even better than. It doesn’t matter how good you are, if you’re not getting the ball you’re not
going to score. That is just the simple fact. You cannot score if you don’t
have the ball.
Stopping the counter-attack
attacking is one of the most destructive weapons that all successful teams
today seem to have at their disposal.
Tottenham, Liverpool and
Manchester city are very deadly on the counter; they have the pace to really
hurt any team in the league so as Arsenal too.
Now pushing too many men
forward without consideration for defending was another mistake by Emery’s
though I believe that is what he was trying to consider by playing all three
midfielders, it doesn’t really work that way.
At against Tottenham, every
time there broke on attack they looked like they were going to score, Arsenal was
just so open. The midfield issues were serious.
More teams are getting
organized into defensive blocks quicker.
As coach the question
should be how this applies to the game and system of play. How will my team be
when they are in their attacking shape? Because Arsenal full-backs seems to overlap
and get in the final third. Which we know that, it is very wrong.
Every situation should be
addressed very importantly by the head coach, that should be his job not the
players to make.
So now am still wondering
why he is playing all three at a starting line when it clears it is not working,
and why he is not addressing the full back issues.
