Hehehe! Thought Rosicky need not be thrown in at the deep end so soon. Why not Arshavin?

Jenkinson has to return to his more forward looking self. He appears to prefer passing backwards to his centre-back as soon as he has any pressure.

Good game, nice tempo so far, both teams looking up for it.

I know Gervinho just set Rosicky up for 1-0 but how rubbish have him and Chamakh been?
04/12/2012 20:24:00
Gervinho is a disappointment these days and what's worse is you feel his shortcomings can be corrected by coaching. He lacks conviction in his decision making and just isn't aware of his team mates' runs. If he is back defending, he needs to be more assured rather than just going through the motions.

All things considered that's actually a decent half of football. We've looked more threatening today than we have for a while. Not as tight as I'd like in defence, but hey, Squillaci is playing.
04/12/2012 20:38:00
Nice to be able to watch an Arsenal game in relax mode; allows for perspectives to the game and players. Szczesny has been calm and very re-assuring. Squillaci has not done much wrong save for playing someone on-side when Vermaelen had held a line with the other defenders. Meade is holding his own and I just want him to do well but he needs more support from Gervinho and the other senior players. The second half will see the Greek side come forward more strongly. We will need calm heads and hope to play the Ox in on breaks

Schalke have just scored at Montpellier. So much for Giroud getting his mates to do us a favour. We still have to get a result at Olympicos first, though.
04/12/2012 21:05:00
Same old. Same old.
04/12/2012 21:15:00
This game really shouldn't matter considering the line-ups, but after all we've seen recently it's just adding to the feelings brought on by Arsene Wenger's sleeping-bag of doom.
