Southampton v Arsenal

Postby Conner99 » Mon Dec 31, 2012 5:40 pm

Southampton were denied a crucial win as Stoke equalised in the 90th minute , it finished 3-3 , manager Nigel Adkins was upbeat despite the draw and said ...We have matured all season and it's excellent to win a point at Stoke. We have a team that are showing a great character and a great desire to do well in this division."


Arsenal needed a late burst to take all 3 pts at the Emirates against Newcastle , it was 3-3 when Theo Walcott started a late goal rush to give the Gunners a 7-3 win over Newcastle ...a hatrick for Walcott and chants of `sign him up` from the home crowd..manager Arsene Wenger will know he has a bit of negotiating to do if he wants to avoid losing Walcott in the new year .

FT

Southampton 1-1 Arsenal
1-0 Ramírez 35'
1-1 Do Prado 41’ (o.g.)

Any comments on todays result?

Did Southampton deserve to earn a draw?

Have Arsenal now lost some ground in the race to finish in the top 4 by not winning this match?

History teaches me that Arsenal are capable of putting a good run together at any time of the season so i wouldnt fret yet.

Not this time, I fully expect this to be the season we drop out of the top 4 and that should be enough to be the end of Wenger at Arsenal. I hope we make top 4 but if we don't, that'll be the one good thing for us to look forward to.

This team is so ridiculously flawed. Over a 5 year space of time Wenger has just f**ked up completely with the team and where we once needed 2 or 3 players away we now need a whole new team.

We have no ruthlessess, we have no squad at all. Just a first team and a bunch of players Wenger is terrified to put in unless its absolutely necessary, he runs our first team into the ground.

We have no variation, all our players are small and technical. We have no power in midfield, no pace in the middle. We have no flair players that can individually make the difference (Fort example RVP, Rooney, Nani, Yaya, Aguero) just a bunch of players that rely on “his way” to work. We need a GK, 2 fullbacks, a Defensive Midfielder, a Box to Box midfielder, a winger and a top striker. Thats £100m at least, which is nothing compared to what we have sold in recent seasons.

What an absolute mess he's created.

It just shows you, selling Van Persie has got to be just about the worst decision in the entire history of top flight football. We scrape Champions League football by 1 point, entirely due to Van Persie's outstanding performances, and Wenger decides to sell the best Centre Forwrd in world football to our former rivals, to make them the best team in the country.

My own personal opinion is that Wenger is an egomaniac, and there are 2 reasons he constantly sells top players and that's because 1, he doesn't like any player earning more than him, and 2, He refuses to let any player overshadow “the great Wenger”

Lets face it Van Persie was the main man at Arsenal last year, he became bigger than Wenger, so he had to go. Same for Cesc and Henry previously.
