Chelsea preview: Points, and more, up for grabs

Arseblog at related • 0 views

Midnight seemed a a reasonable time to put yesterday's post-Arseblog 5s shenanigans to bed, as people headed for the hills. And I'm sure I would be feeling much better this morning had the Green team (what was left of us) not continued by drinking delicious bourbon based cocktails here. You live and learn eh?

Saturday round-up as fires are stoked badly

Morning to you. There's a delicateness to my head which can only be cured by coffee and pork related products. I must make this happen.

There are some headlines about Jose Mourinho 'hitting back' at Arsene Wenger over something the manager said about defending being easy. The Chelsea manager made some kind of vaguely snide comment about how if defending was easy we wouldn't have lost 3-1 to Monaco and I suppose we're all meant to go crazy about this, but if this is the extent of the pre-game sniping then there's not much to get upset about.

It's going to happen

Chelsea are going to win the English League this year and we all know it. Who would have thought that back in 2003, when the U.S.S.R.'s Mr. Abramovich first had the notion to spend a billion pounds creating a football team in west London to give QPR and Fulham a run for their money that one day they would win the league.

Wenger on Cesc & Mourinho + Arsecast 349

Good morning to you.

The manager's press conference ahead of the Chelsea game took place yesterday. My favourite bit was his face at around 8'35 in when it's put to him that Mourinho is something of a 'tactical genius. I tried to do a screengrab but it doesn't lend itself to that – you need the animated GIF experience and I'm not sure how to do that and I just can't be arsed learning at this time of the morning.

Can Wenger blitz Mourinho’s abyss

"He who fights with monsters should be careful lest he thereby become a monster. And if thou gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will also gaze into thee." So said sage philosopher Joey Barton Friedrich Nietzsche. I think we can all agree that Jose Mourinho is both a monster and a huge festering abyss on the football landscape and he will be tucked away in his lair staring deep into the soul of this Arsenal team.

Let’s not call the thing anything because nutcases

Yesterday, in a piece which showed how Twitter tracks Arsenal fan activity across the globe, my erstwhile (or is that hirsute?) colleague Andrew Allen attempted to describe the sensation where winning all the time kills off the news.

We know how it goes. When you lose there's always something to talk about.

The politics of dancing (or refereeing or whatever)

Good day to you all.

It's quite something when the biggest story of the day is how Jon Moss is going to referee the FA Cup final in May. The former Culture Club drummer got the nod over Mark Clattenburg, much to the surprise of everyone. Including, it seems Mark Clattenburg, who was expecting to be in charge of the game.

Ozil and Alexis a vision of Arsenal’s future

Morning all.

It's going to be one of those weeks, I think. A game on Sunday has been prefaced by another win, one without much in the way of talking points, and that's likely to be reflected in how quiet it is from a news point of view.

Still, there's always something to keep us going.

Tactics Column: Alexis, Ozil stoke up promising partnership

Arseblog at related • 1 view

Arsenal stuttered and spluttered their way to the FA Cup final thanks to two goals from Alexis Sanchez in a 2-1 victory. The Chilean wasn't Arsenal's best player, but he was one of the few able to find space against a resolute Reading side.

At times, in his Arsenal career so far, Alexis has felt like a player operating independently from the system, often seen hounding opponents alone, or attempting to slalom past two or three players.

Here's this week's Arsecast Extra with myself and James from @Gunnerblog.

On this week's show we look back at the 2-1 FA Cup semi-final win over Reading at Wembley, the team selection and whether that impacted on performance, the displays of Mesut Ozil and Alexis, as well discussing as our opposition in the final, Aston Villa.

It’s Villa in the final + Debuchy & Mertesacker

Morning all, the dust settles on an FA Cup weekend and it turns out it's going to be Aston Villa in the final. Brendan Rodgers's glowing shark teeth weren't scaring Tim Sherwood's men yesterday, and a goal from Fabian Delph helped Villa do Liverpool's dishes.

On a very basic level I'd be happier playing Villa than the Scousers in the final.

Arsenal Arsenaled their way to the FA Cup final yesterday with an Arsenalriffic win over a Reading team that made it very difficult for us.

As I suspected the manager made a number of changes to his team beyond the goalkeeper with Mathieu Debuchy, Kieran Gibbs and Danny Welbeck making the starting line-up.

Reading preview: one step from Wembley again

Here we are then, FA Cup semi-final day.

I know some people love the idea of a trip to Wembley but for me it's only special when you're there for the final. I mean, I understand why the games are held there now (££££) and why the kick-off time is 5.20 in the evening (£££££££££££), but it does take something away from the semi-final experience.
