Arsenal 1 Newcastle 0 – Video Highlights


Arsenal-v-Newcastle

Laurent Koscielny after scoring the winner today

Here’s the video  highlights of today’s game at Arsenal where we missed at least three golden opportunities to score.

But it’s the same old story – we lost 1-0 for the third game in a  row – and are now deeper into relegation trouble with Sunderland and Norwich both winning and Bournemouth getting a great 0-0 draw at Leicester City.

    I was pleased that after my comment in the run up to the last game that somebody at the club spotted it and passed on my message about composure in our short passing game, it kind of restores a bit of faith in the club.

    Proud of the lads today 3 points are 3 points granted, but if you see glimpses of quality on your team it gives a bit of belief that things will turn round. Don’t think smac is the answer tbh but I would like him to have the chance to build his squad over these 3 windows. If he goes back and starts saying he’s happy with the squad then I’ll start losing my rag a little bit

    I said before the game that Colo would not be able to compete with Giroud and it would cost us. What happens? Colo and Giroud compete in the danger area. Colo can’t compete. Ball in back of net.

    I also said Colo would go AWOL. The tome Elliot made the good save in the second half, where was Colo? I was on a dodgy stream but I’m sure that was him out on the wing playing keystone cop.

    Toonbrother is right. Most of you haven’t a clue. It happens week after week. You don’t see what’s in front of your eyes. The team played very well this week and so the defence didn’t come under much pressure. Go figure why we’re always the hard luck story.

    Of course we need firepower. I think it was Jail and I who were most vociferous about this at the start of the season, while too many of you were fantasising over Mitro and Perez. That’s not to say Mitro doesn’t do a good job for us but we need a goalscorer to play off him. People would keep telling me Perez is the man. They probably still think so.

    I still think we’ll go down but at least after the first ten minutes we actually give it a go. We totally lack cutting edge so a striker is a must along with other key areas that need strengthening. It’s down to Mash now.

    I’m assuming your expansive knowledge of footy is coming from a long and illustrious professional football career? Or even an average amateur career? Or from sitting watching on your laptop assuming you know more than anybody else mate? If the majority see one thing yet you as an individual along with a borderline stalker in too brother see something else, then obviously you’s are both special and we are thick.

    You can ignore Toonbrother and me and urge others to do the same, but you’re only kidding yourself. Blame Darlow last week. Blame someone else this week. What is this love affair our fans have with Colo?

    Well two performances now that would have put us top 8 easily if we had been doing this from the start of the season. Strikers who are not used to scoring opportunities invariably take a while to get into it when they do. But a proven striker would be nice.

    Sadly the down part of the day is another useless transition by Lame Sack and the regular multiple pointless wums.

    If Collo is so important that he’s the only thing that holds us back from top 8 then football has changed. I mean mangala is crap but city are doing ok, mertesacker a bit naff but arsenal are ok.

    I love the way some bloggers question my footballing credentials as player and observer while always staying quiet on their own. If you want to question my credentials as player and observer, state your own. Not that any of it helps you make a constructive point about what you’ve seen.

    As expected we lost and although Newcastle played well they still lost. McLaren may have sympathy for being unlucky, but he was ‘unlucky’ for several Derby losses before our chairman Charnley (embarrassingly) decided to pursue and hire McLaren. It was just before the Spurs game that McLaren was given one game to save himself which did. But now we are on a 3 game losing streak so if my maths are correct this Arsenal game should be Mclaren’s last. We need to recruit a manager like DeBoer who is on his way up in his career and not keep McLaren who peaked his career in Holand.

    I’m no professional, had a long career playing county and amateur footy, started my youth football at redgeugh boys club so by no means an expert. But o don’t call people thick or clueless if they see it a different way to myself. Sorry mate it just bugs the sh1t out of me when people scapegoat a player regardless of how well they play

    Blackley, your straw man arguments again. Just because many don’t share your views on Colo doesn’t mean it’s a “love affair our fans have with Colo”.

    Blackley,
    I don’t think many fans don’t believe that Colo is good enough to keep a starting berth at a decent Prem club. He was beaten in the air by Giroud for the goal, but Dummett’s clearing header was appalling, and who left Koscielny? Both are equally, if not more culpable.

    As for the striker, yes, I think a lot wanted another striker, I wanted a Berahinho type, a quick skillful forward who could play slightly wider. Batshauayi would be good at any other time, but we need more experience at this moment. All strikers need sufficient good chances. There is no point playing Mitro if we aren’t going to create chances that play to his strength. Same goes for any striker.

    We play like we did today and get a striker and a winger at least we will get the 8 wins we need to get to 40 point’s. I do fancy us to get something at man utd a week on tuesday.

    What about loaning a striker ie remy we have to do something and it could be a waste splashing money on a striker and hoping it works.

    Ya’ know how piss weak your blog persona becomes when accusing people of trolling and being multiple posters, every time you see something that disagrees with precious opinion? Makes me laugh when I see it aimed at myself, as I’m sure it does others, having full knowledge it’s just a pathetic, juvenile distraction technique to get away from your lack of evidence for whatever it is you’re saying. It’s always those that consider themselves the good guys too, the pious pricks!

    Do you think the likes of Wes Morgan, Robert Huth Ryan Shawcross etc would’ve lost out so very easily to Giroud in the danger area as Colo did there. This has been happening to Colo for years, going back to a young Drogba.

    Tbh girlie had a running leap on a static collocini, so if the defenders you mentioned were in the same scenario yeah I do believe they would’ve lost out in the challeneg

    Giroud beats many defenders in the air it’s the lack of awareness and ball watching that cost us that goal.

    Saivet and shelvey left out of their respective sides. That would be a start but it needs to happen now and add austin or Carroll or both. A top quality centre back and an out left winger. 6 or 7 quality players would give us depth a central midfield we’ve lacked since cabaye and a better cb than colo we desperately need. Hoping they pull off what’s required and don’t stop short yet again.

    Lil
    Most fans want a new CB and have identified it for years. Yet most bloggers on here would rather decry Toonbrother and me and claim to be in the majority when we say Colo is the big problem. So who is this sought after CB meant to replace if not Colo? Or is CB not a priority any longer?
