Yes there was a bias against Arsenal but is it justified?

By 1970's Gooner What do us Arsenal supporters expect from the media and ex player pundits when they see a match lost 3-1 by Arsenal at home with a possession statistic of 75% and 30 attempts at goal! We've all heard that story before haven't we? Dominate possession, the opponents park the bus and then do us on the counter attack usually through a defensive mistake.

What's happened to Mustafi?

By 1970's Gooner I am worried about the game at Man City. I am not worried about them, their performance and form are all there for all to see. They will play the full attacking game and put pressure on the ball when they haven't got it. I am worried about two things. One is the tactics that Wenger should employ to nullify their threats and the other is Mertesacker.

‘One nil to the Arsenal’ form George Graham to Arsene Wenger?

By 1970's Gooner It was of course very refreshing and encouraging to see the way Arsenal deployed themselves against Chelsea. Enthusiasm, running, commitment but above all being as good off the ball as on it. In previous encounters with the bigger teams Arsene would line up with the same old gang ho tactics.

Will Wenger announce Sanchez calf injury still persists?

Arsenal Analysis at related • 0 views
By 1970's Gooner It's a bit strange that Sanchez developed a cold just at the time when he was due to fly back to begin his pre season. This conveniently meant he would not be ready to start his fitness comeback for the start of the season. He then conveniently developed a calf injury which Wenger expected to side line him for the games against Leicester and Stoke.

Arsene's unbalanced midfield needs rethinking

By 1970's Gooner Arsene's teams in the last 10 years are unbalanced. Xhaka is not a holding midfielder neither is Ramsey. When the ball is lost in midfield there is no real barrier to stop the on coming attack. Ramsey is already too forward and Xhaka more often than not is unable to provide the defensive shield needed.

Bookies really slash the odds for Lacazette to Arsenal

By 1970's Gooner It's beginning to look like Wenger has got his finger out and really zoomed right on to one of his main targets, Lacazette. This he has done once he realised that Mbappe would not have joined in a million years. May be he should have realised that at the beginning and saved usand his time.

Is Wenger going to do a Wenger?

By 1970's Gooner Pre season begins on the 3rd of July and not all of the first team squad will be there as many have taken part in various tournaments (or are injured). NeverthelessArsene Wenger has only signed one player so far (Sead kolasinac), on a free. And he has apparently been busy putting in bids for various players which is a marked improvement on previous seasons where his strategy

A way to solve the defensive crisis and keep the three at the back formation

Arsenal Analysis at related • 0 views
By 1970's Gooner The central defenders crisis which has fallen upon Arsenal has made choosing the formation according to the players left standing. But should it be so? Lets start with the formation. I believe the three at the back belatedly employed by Wenger is the most appropriate formation. It gives more defensive stability with the wing backs bombing up and down the line offering

Don't believe the papers! Formation, line up and prediction for the derby

By 1970's Gooner Everybody is expecting Arsenal to loose the game against Spurs tomorrow . This is typical of the flimsy and shallow journalists who have imited knowledge of football and always go with the trend. Like when they were asked to predict who will finish in the top 4. They always choose the four who are at that time ahead of the others.

By 1970's Gooner I was captivated by the quality of football that both teams served during this highly entertaining Emirates game against PL2 title chasing Man City. The game was played at a fast pace, was end to end and all players gave their all. Arsenal had a good mixture of more seasoned players like Holding, Jenkinson and dare I say it, Sanogo who wereably supported by Sheaf (who started

The three criteria for supporting Wenger's stay at Arsenal

By 1970's Gooner I have been very critical of the team's performance over the last few years just as many, many other fans have been. The same story repeating itself. Many small technical players, afraid of tough challenges, no leaders on the pitch and playing tiki taka football in a light Barca version, but lacking a Xavi, an Iniesta or indeed a Messi to pull it off.

Wenger's succession turning into a sorry mess

By 1970s Gooner Can you tell me if you know of any club which has allowed their manager's contract to run into its last year without having announced who his successor will be? Can you tell me if you know of any club which is waiting into the dying embers of a manger's contract to find out if HE has decided to carry on or not?

Arsenal's tiredness to be dealt with and transition counter attacking the new way

By 1970's Gooner I was very pleased and encouraged by the Arsenal players' performance against Crystal Palace. They moved the ball about very quickly, hunted the opponentsall over the pitch and counter attacked with pace and venom (hence the scorpion kick...). The urgency shown was something that was distinctly missing from previous recent performances with the known negative results.

Arsenal 18 year old set to leave for transfer abroad

By 1970's Gooner Usually it's the 30 and overplayers that are more willing to try their fortunes abroad but on this occasion Arsenal Academy youngster Ben Sheaf is set to move to Omonia Nicosia in Cyprus. It is not yet clear if this is going to be on loan terms or an outright acquisition by the Cypriot club who currently sit 5th 10 points behind the leaders.

It was interesting to practice 10 Vs 11 against City

Arsenal Analysis at related • 0 views
By 1970's Gooner It's not very often that a team gets the chance to practice, in real life conditions, a 10 against 11. It of course happens when a player is sent off and then the rest of the players have to play that extra hard and with determination to get a result. Arsenal were indeed playing with 10 men against the 11 of City.
