Baptista Not Up To Scratch

Baptista Not Up To Scratch

Our latest Vital Arsenal poll (suggested by HipHipToure) asked which Arsenal player has not been up to standard this season.

I was reluctant to run this poll as I'd rather be more positive regarding our football team, but with little else to run (this was before Deingate) I decided to see what everyone thought.

I'm sad to say that Julio Baptista ran out clear winner. I really did have high hopes for the big man, but it appears that the Beast is more of a pussycat.

Poll Result in full:

Which Arsenal player has not been up to standard this season?

*Senderos 20%
*Lehmann 6%
*Baptista 53%
*Adebayor 3%
*Henry 12%
*Aliadiere 6%


Our latest poll asks your opinion on a possible take over.

Dont agree, the boy needs time, he tries his best every game but is taking timne to adapt. Should he stay he will be a legend.

No surprises there. Gunnerb, I woulnt mind if he looked like might settle in given a few months, but with his recent form, that doesnt look likely. True, he tries a lot, and I had hopes for him when he came here. But I'd rather have someone else !!

its a sad ending for him ... but we can't afford to keep him hoping he will find his feet

still, it's good to hear that he's not been slagging the club, as had been reported! »»Arsene Knows««

Baptista has been far from dynamic, aside from some highlights in the Carling, he's been a virtual pylon on the pitch (or traffic cone? not sure if these are international terms...if not, I apologise for my Canadese). Who is to say whether or not he 'just needs more time'...I'd suggest even AW sees him as little more than a bench warmer right now, yet he continues to give him chances to shine here and there that he doesn't take advantage of. I wouldn't be upset to see him go back...perhaps him and Reyes can lay under the Spanish sunshine together in the spoon position and reminisce about the horrible rainy English weather. I say return the Beast, sell Reyes outright, and take Ribery with the proceeds.

...but guys... it is hard to accept that he is that rubbish! It is for me anyway! I saw him play a bit in Spain and he was quite good. I reckon if he stayed another year we'd see, but the problem is that we will have 5 strikers next year so can't see him being tested further by AW.

Don't y'all think that your being too hard on him?It's his first season. Believe me, when i tell you that this season, swp tripped on the ball , about 7 times.And he is still getting better,He finally showed us a reason to back him up.If AW doesn't think he'll be good enough to get a regular first XI start.He'll return him.

I'm not sure anyone is being too hard on him...you're exactly right though, if he doesn't fit into AW's plans, he will be returned. I speculate this may be likely judging by how he has had limited appearances and failed to impress when called upon...to the point where even Ljumberg with a bum hamstring is being selected ahead of JB to start! He's also competing against some top notch strikers for a very saturated role. Perhaps the writing is on the wall...who knows...
