Players Who Regret Leaving Arsenal by Dan S.

Last week Arsene Wenger was quick to squash any hope Alex Song may have had of returning to Arsenal. Song has failed to establish himself in Barcelona's star studded midfield and was hoping that a return to the Emirates might be his solution to a lack of game time at the Spanish giants.

Talking Tactics: Imagine Arsenal’s Formation if Everyone Had Stayed. We Did.

Take a second and think...what if no one had left Arsenal? What if all the players that are still influencing their new teams (or would still have a place in the Arsenal team) were still at Arsenal? Guys like van Persie, Nasri, and Fabregas. Or how about Cole, Toure, and Hleb? Though the names of some of these players will make Arsenal fans worldwide shudder and most likely hurl expletives at their respective computer screens, it's hard to disagree that nearly all of these players played massive roles at Arsenal.

We've all done it. Screamed at Gervinho, I mean. When the match is firmly encamped in the tenterhooks phase; both teams engaging in thrust and cautious counter-thrust; the tension so palpable that you could cut it with the switch-blade Steve Bould undoubtedly carries around in his back-pocket: Gervinho gets the ball, attempts a dribble, jinks impressively past his man, and tonks it woefully out of play.

Alex Song

It struck me yesterday that Arsenal's starting lineup against Sunderland was almost an entirely different team from even two seasons ago.

After years of being fairly quiet in the transfer market (apart from selling the occasional top player and signing the occasional teenager), Arsenal have now gone the other way: last summer saw Clichy, Fabregas and Nasri leave, with Gervinho, Santos, Mertesacker, Arteta and Chamberlain being added to the first-team; this year we've seen van Persie and now Song leave, with Podolski, Giroud and Cazorla coming in.

Arsène Wenger has never seen so much pressure from his own fans. His ability to manage this Arsenal team is being questioned, and according to some, he is losing his grip on the modern game. But is he the only one to blame?

Over the past few years Arsenal have had some exceptional players. For all the bemoaning of the lack of trophies, there has remained a bountiful supply of top talent strutting their stuff at the Emirates Cesc Fabregas remains the best young midfielder in Europe, one we kept for seven years, and we have more that could be labelled 'amongst the best in their position, or for their age' the likes of Vermaelen, Van Persie and Wilshere can certainly be counted in those categories, with others knocking on the door.

James Collins grabbed a point for Villa with a well taken half-volley from close range to cancel out Roger Johnson's fortuitous opener early in the 2nd half in a game that was low on quality, but high on chances, and will have done little to ease the nerves of fans of either team.

Once again it was a case of early chances wasted, Gabby practically served the opener on the plate thanks to some comedy goal keeping from Ben Foster, only to slice his effort over the bar.
