Man City 0-2 ARSENAL: player ratings.
Arsene doesn’t do tactics. He is stubborn. ARSENAL will lose 3 nil. ARSENAL will lose 3-1. ARSENAL lose big games. Its down to the manager, he is responsible for all the big defeats. He is the past. We should look to the future. And when we win a match against the so called “big team” we have this:
“Great win but you don’t get any trophies for one game and all the humiliations we suffered away from home in the last 4 seasons are still relevant. You have to hand it to Arsene though, it only took four years a barracking at Stoke station to make him change his ideas. Its stunning what the team can do when they are coached and the pensioner has a full week to work on a game”
I don’t understand what makes people think so. You are taking credit for the victory are you?? Its because you abused Mr Wenger in the railway station at Stoke that opened Mr Wenger’s mind and filled the empty old pot with new ideas.
Yesterdays commentator, early on in the game, looking at ARSENAL’s shape says
“Looking at ARSENAL’s shape and defending deep, it has to be Steve Bould’s work (taken over the reigns)”
And later in the game
“For once Wenger has humbly let Bould do the job”
Well not exactly his words, but the summary of it. But Mr Wenger never gets credited for anything good does he. Its all Steve Bould’s work. Lets not forget, Steve Bould is Mr Wenger’s deputy and he is here on merit. He does all the things that an asst. manager is supposed to. I have never seen another manager/ asst. manager stuff discussed for so long.
Since all the other blogs/websites do the player rating, we at untold can do it for a change. We usually don’t do it, because football is a team game. Every member is important. And since its an important away win, as we don’t win enough of them. And we haven’t won away to a “big team” since Dortmund!! we break the norm.
Man. I am lazy to do this. Herez the Avg score.
- ARSENAL: 10/10.
Team performed well, everyone at the same wave length. Did you see Giroud’s no look pass to Cazorla!! Did you see Cazorla’s dance moves!! Did you see Coquelin’s awesome defending? Did you see the ball retention skills? Did you see Mr Wenger’s reaction to the game…
- Referee: -10/10.
For booking Ramsey for nothing. For not booking Kompany for the tackle on Alexis. For showing throw ins the wrong way. For being Dean basically.
- AAA: 0.
For being absent since yesterday.
Bonus rating for Pelegrini. -25/10 for calling us divers.
Come on Gunners, lets build on this. To the strong end of the season.
