Unia Emery

Unia Emery’s Fault on Arsenal Negative Performance?

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.

Now the 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

Playing Without the Creative Midfielders or a Play Maker

The creative 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?

A playmaker 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.

Playmakers should 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.

Emery’s and 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.

Unai Emery has defiantly missed that strategy there with the midfield player.

With Xhaka, 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.

Arsenal’s has 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

Counter 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.
