So it goes to show my last post may have been a little mis-fired as to what would happen, the result was good but i still think something was missing. Again we went out there and showed some good play as to creating chances, but it just seems we lack the last finishing touch. I ask myself where are we going wrong at this current stage at Arsenal?
In tonights game we took out a half decent team. Diaby returned from recent spell of injury, i think he played well and showed us how he could shoot at goal when having the chance, something the players fail to do these days when we play, we tend to play accross the center of the box to get it on the wings for a cross in the box which half the time is broken down due to the weak quality of passing from some of the team.
Last night we had plenty of chances against the Italians but we just couldn’t get it in the back of the net, so what does this mean? Are our cover strikers not good enough? Or is it simply the mid-field causing the problem? We can sit here and argue all day but i will tell you now the problem consists of players just not being able to shoot a ball on target.
Eboue who i believe played pretty well failed to net pretty much an open goal in most strikers eyes, and as for Bendtner, the boys first touch everytime is just too heavy, he also missed a easy chance to get us 2-0 ahead.
Now when we look back on the match, although we had numerous amounts of chances, hadn’t we gotten that penalty would we have scored? I don’t think some people realise that although we come through with a victory, with this team we still aint breaking that point anymore were we bury everything in return to dominating the opposition.
We can also argue that injuries may be effecting our season but realistically speaking that all comes to planning, and on the managers behalf i think his failed to suceed in that area. You can’t assume your not going to have injuries and that they will be there all season, you have to buy cover players who have experience or can handle themselves. Throwing out Denilson, Song, Eboue and Bendtner week in week out isn’t getting us knowhere and it’s becoming very fustrating that the manager doesn’t see this.
I would like to congratulate the boys on there win – well done, lets hope we progress. Join the forum at: Goonerforum
