Gooners

Not pretty but it is still 3 points. If I have to sum up yesterday,
it would be the team was playing as a unit but some individual
players were evidently below par. There is no point naming and
shaming as even if they didn't contribute going forward, they did
their best defending. I can't expect the players to perform
fantastically in every game. But when they do pull together, the
least I can do is clap my hands for effort.

Another aspect of the opposition team even at home is now to sit
back and hit us on the break. What happens to the good old days of
attacking at home and defending away? This goes to show the image
of Arsenal that Wenger built. So many teams are so cautious about
playing us that even at home, they play like the away team.

But this method suits the current team that is build on technique
and pace at every level. We can now defend a whole lot higher
without fear of getting caught behind. Almunia may have his
detractors but his pace over Lehmann would have been a factor in
this set up. Senderos may be the weak link in this. But yesterday,
he was nothing of this sort. The benefit of his run in the first
team is apparent. He looks more assured and his overall game has
improved. First Gilberto, now maybe Gallas to wait for his turn?

Sentiments aside, I would do what is best for the team. The current
XI is doing well. It should be retained even if at the expense of a
few individuals. Injuries will creep in. Every player will get
their chance.

That said, Fabregas looked tired. His all round game seemed to have
dropped. May be because he was defending deeper than usual in the
last 2 matches. A breather may be helpful for our young Spaniard.
There is always Denilson and Diaby.

Sunderland next and I am sure all Gooners will anticipate what Keane
will tell his players to do in the first 20 minutes – make your
presence felt. I think English referees should let football rule
over English passion. While grit and determination is fine and
dandy, clattering onto players and not playing the ball is not
passion. It doesn't help the league and it shall doesn't help the
overall development of the English game.

I am not saying teams should let Arsenal walk over them or compete
head on head in terms of skill, but the stamps on Fabregas and the
Noble tackle should be thrown out of football altogether. While I
cannot stop the tugging of shirts or tripping of players, at least
they do not injure the player.

Arsenal may not be angels themselves but if you look carefully,
their tackles more often than not have their studs facing downwards
away from the opposition player. Yes, there are one or two poor
ones but with the exception of the Sagna tackle on Huddlestone, I
haven't come across one this season where the body weight of player
follows through the tackle.

A win is a win, sometimes ugly sometimes breathtakingly fine.
There is a danger in players getting over-confident and small mistake or turn of luck may see our characters tested. Looks like players are getting their turn to hog spotlight, Fabregas earlier and van Persie in the last 2 games, hopefully it is our so-called wingers and Eduardo later. Would love to see our fullbacks and center-halfs scoring too. Dont mind at all if it is Almunia as long as we win. Why not eh, with the momentum that we are in.

While debating the bad aspects of some players, the unsung ones need to be mentioned too. Flamini has been a revelation this season, some goals would do him/Arsenal wonders. Sagna is so solid that we wont worry too much about the right side anymore. Maybe Walcott should play more on that side. How about Almunia, coming from obscurity of Spanish lower league and now the starting GK for the EPL table-topper. OK, not all due to his heroics or acrobatics but the back 5 seems to have such verve playing together. We still dont have Gallas to enforce his authority. The Carling cuppers too arent too bad.

Interesting the comment given by one of the Steaua player that Arsenal is nothing compared to Real Madrid or Lyon who beat them heavily in Bucharest last season. Keep the opinion that way, let ppl underestimate Arsenal until we win something. Yes, we won nothing yet except for some new fans.

Hmm... lets make it perfect 10 vs Sunderland

Dividend out

Posted by: "Yippy" kcheong@uk.ey.com   kycheong6

Wed Oct 3, 2007 7:33 am (PST)

Gooners

I mentioned in one of my columns of 27/09/2007 that Usmanov would
seek to declare dividend if he had sufficient control of the club.
Well, this has rung true in the FT write up of 02/10/2007 in that
Usmanov wants the Board to consider declaring dividends. Defensive
words now, but when he does have sufficient control, he will declare
dividends and who is to stop him draining funds out of Arsenal.

He talks highly about the club but ended his sentence with the
word `portfolio'. No matter how hard he tries, he is first and
foremost an investor and will always be one. Genuinely concerned
Gooners know the difference between him and Roman. While the latter
is investing in a hobby, the former may inject funds into the club.
But the injection would most probably be in the form of a loan which
the club, in the end, would have to repay.

At a time when we should be celebrating a new Arsenal, we also have
to worry about what the club could become if left unchecked.

Wed Oct 3, 2007 10:00 pm (PST)

well, the obvious problem was the train stopping and blocking the big screen...and the few smaller screens dunno why, kadang2 the picture lost...esp when trains pass by...

it was hot...actually got fans rite, but they were useless because the tents blocked them...no need la those tents..takut apa, hujan kaaa? we're already indoors maa

but 1 very big plus point...food/drinks very much more affordable compared to rick's...

Subject: [Possible Spam Detected] AFCSM: Arsenal Vs West Ham 29 Sept- at KL Station

Guys,
I would like to get a feedback from the guys who came to Old Railway Station in KL
We had close to 30 fans there, but a few left at half time to catch the game elsewhere.

Honestly I think its a nice place but if we are going to use it on a regular basis
it needs some improvement, attached are my observations,

Plus points :
1. Spacious
2. Open, Stadium feel and Ambience
4. Sound System good
3. Ample Parking
4. Food Cheap

Negative :
1. Trains passing creates disturbance
2. Astro transmission distorted when trains pass
3. Train Parked in front of Screen
4. Not too sure how long this viewing will go on in case of poor reponse might stop
5. No beer but they allow us to bring own cans

Please put your 2 cents worth on the venue, we would like your feedback

Regards,
Sukumar
