My Arsenal Picks…..

As a football fan there are those players that you like and for me these are my favourite in Arsenal.
Alexi sanchez-
As the current top scorer with 17 goals Alexis has been a vital player in the Arsenal team,very hardworking,Energetic and consistent player.This is a player I can comfortably point out as worth every cent spent on him at the club.As opposed to other players Sanchez evidently loves football as he never wants to miss a match even when the manager decides to rest him.
Alexis is dangerous in front of goal and can shake any experienced defender with his credible skills.Did I mention that i love his goal celebrations,very genuine and on point.
He has won the hearts of many Arsenal fans,terming him as the Savior. Personally I would not imagine him leaving the club,then again i will always wish him the best wherever he goes.

Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain-
Oxlade-Chamberlain is creative ,self driven and aggressive.He might not have the advantage in starting games but he shows determination. Now that Ramsey is out with a calf injury he has to make his presence felt.
I like how he goes deep,he is strong enough to resist a tackle and make his way to the goal area but unfortunately his shots are not accurate but i believe if he get regular starts he will certainly aim for the net.

Mesut Ozil-
Assistant in chief is how we refer to him,he is best known for his crucial assists. His sleek moves and wise decisions makes him tick,he makes football more fun and entertaining to watch.
It is amazing to watch how he protects himself from hard tackles,he only gets flu and not broken skull like anyone else.Like any other player he has his off days when he is not in the game and he makes little impact in a game.
Lest I forget he can see very far.

Laurent Koscielny and Mustafi
Kostafi is how we refer to this great partnership between these two defenders,they wholeheartedly give their best when it comes to defending.They only become exposed if the midfield is not sufficient enough.The passion portrayed by this two is magnificent,one have not seen in a long time.
In defense we trust!

Olivier Giroud
I know you are wondering why i picked him in this list,I had to. There is something about this “Beast” i cant resist, as much as there has been much criticism about his inconsistent performance he has scored in almost every game this season.
He is in great shape,I mean he got the stamina.He can handle the defenders with much ease,his powerful headers that sends fans into ecstasy especially when you are trailing United.
The only issue i have with our Olivier is that he performs better when he comes in as a sub as opposed to when he starts.
Away from football He has good fashion sense!

Alex Iwobi-
This is a fresh blood,coming from a footballing family makes it even better.He got skills,pace and an eye for the ball.He is dangerous upfront and all i can say is that he is a star in the making.

I wish you an Arsenal feel Season.

Any Hope for Arsenal?

ImageArsenal’s recent poor performance has sparked criticism from the entire football fraternity with Arsene Wenger being on the spot light as the man to blame.

Fans around the world keep on lamenting that Wenger should go but the question still remains is he really to blame? For me the answer is no, because Wenger has managed to put Arsenal in the level they are right now.

Bringing in a new coach will take more time to rebuild the team because it will mean changing the whole system.

Has it occurred to anyone that the problem might be players’ attitude and lack of concentration? Lately they have been playing poorly, their usual entertaining sleek passes and moves are hardly seen and this means there is something wrong with the players.

Last season Arsenal lost in the finals of the Carling cup against an average side Birmingham, it was so painful because the players and also the fans believed their drought for silverware would finally be over but it was not to be.

In my outlook this is when Arsenal lost track, with their key players Fabregas, Nasri and Clichy leaving in search for greener pastures. The greatest dream of every football player is to win titles before they reach the prime years of their careers and this is what they went for.

Since then Arsenal has not got direct replacement of these three crucial players making it even hard for the team to perform well. Yes, Arteta, Mertesacker and the rest of the new signings are good but they have not made a very notable change.

The beginning of this season’s English premier league saw Arsenal as every team’s meat loosing match after match, with players such as Song and Gervinho starting off on a bad note receiving red cards in the opening match of the season.

The 8-2 torture in Oldtrafford was a clear indication that Arsenal was going down despite the long list of injuries at the time.

Recently they had their worst night in Europe, after they were outclassed by AC Milan 4-0 in the first leg of the Champions league. A score line that even magic cannot possibly overturn in the return leg considering Arsenal’s pitiable performance.

It is very sad to hear supporters saying that this is probably the worst Arsenal team they have ever seen in all their time of watching football.

I believe this is the time each Arsenal player looks directly into the mirror and asks himself, have I given my all to my team? If no, it’s time to do it and just maybe this can make a big difference.
