Argentina vs Switzerland.If the Swiss pick Ponderous and Djourou as their central defenders this could get very nasty. Given the outstanding attacking talent of Argentina they should stroll this game but I thought that of Germany! The Argies haven't hit their straps as yet but they have such a superb side they surely must at some stage in the competition.

In our second and final part of our Cesc Fabregas Player Spotlight, we take a look at Cesc's rise from teenager to first-team regular at Arsenal at a time when Arsenal were slowly losing members of their beloved Invincibles. We take a look at how Cesc's move to London opened doors to the Premier League that may not have been open in previous seasons.

The recent weeks has become a little bit boring in all fairness. Who likes to continually read or write about the good stuffs. About how the squad is showing real resilience and fight and courage and we're suddenly a pretty decent team when we have our players back fit.

AC Milan 4-0 Arsenal

I have not been blogging recently and I must say, I've not really missed it. It would not be fair to solely blame the gradual declining form of Arsenal for the gradual declining form of this blog but the seemingly perpetual cycle of poor defeat followed by gentle recovery followed by poor defeat does not help.

For a short period of time, we turn our attention elsewhere. There will be no worries of long ball tactics or roughhouse treatment or any of those "they don't like it when we get in their faces" attitude. At least not in the next immediate game.

Strongest Squad Ever? My Arse(nal)

Arsenal Arsenal at related • 0 views

Arsene Wenger says this current Arsenal squad is the strongest he's ever had.

As the dust settles on Saturday's painful and embarrassing defeat, perhaps it's time to examine that claim.

It seems important that Arsene referred to his strongest squad, not his strongest team (even he wouldn't expect us to swallow that Saturday's bottlers are the best team he's ever had).

This Game Could Go To The Drogs

All Four One, and One Four All! at related • 0 views



Football is a game played between eleven players on each side physically, two managers on the touchline mentally with the referee joining the team which gives him a supple ten year old boy for a pre-game feast. So there are a lot of people and a lot of factors which play a hand in deciding the fate of the game.

How much difference does one player make anyway?

Craven Cottage Newsround at related • 0 views

Interested in your views on how replaceable players are. I remember a few years ago, getting to White Hart Lane and finding that Hangeland was out and the much maligned Chris Baird was playing instead. The result: comfortable enough 0-0 draw.

If Hangeland were to break his leg tomorrow I would be reasonably happy that a combination of Hughes, Baird and Senderos would be more than adequate to keep us broadly where we'd have been with Hangeland.

Getting Defensive

Craven Cottage Newsround at related • 0 views

When I was younger and played 11 a side football on a regular basis, I was a centre back. Coupled with Italian heritage, I have always been a big fan of this rather unglamorous position. Â Italy's World Cup success in 2006 was as memorable for the peerless defensive work of Fabio Cannavaro (later seen being imitated by a stand-in at Craven Cottage in 2010) as for the thrilling victory against Germany or the Materazzi inspired head butt in the final.

A solid, professional job in the end. Charlton, as the third division table shows, are a tidy enough team, but in the end class told. Clint Dempsey scored a hat-trick, Damien Duff whopped in another, and Fulham are in the hat for the 4th round.

We scored early, Murphy's through ball finding Dempsey, who lifted the ball home expertly.

Wenger questions officiating yet again

Premiership Talk Blog at related • 0 views

Arsene Wenger has been known to scrutinize the officiating in the Premier League, particularly when it is against his Arsenal side.

Hence, it comes as no surprise that the Frenchman has once again questioned why some of the key decisions in recent matches have gone against the Gunners.

Despite being 1-0 up with 12 minutes to go at Fulham, Wenger's men completely lost control of matters following the dismissal of defender Johan Djourou for a second bookable offence.

Ten Thoughts on Arsenal 1 Fulham 2

Goonerboy at related • 0 views


Well, that was frustrating, but let's start at the beginning (always a good place to start):

* We had, in many respects, an excellent first half. We raced out the box and dominated the game - I think we had something like 60% of possession at certain points in the first period, which is brilliant for any performance away from home.

Speaking on ESPN, Nicol - who won a bucketload of trophies as Liverpool player, including 4 league championship titles - noted:

"Disappointing is not the word; it's frustrating.

"Danny Murphy is a fantastic player and he was great for me last year but he is not getting any younger and his influence on the team is huge.

"He knows and everyone knows that at some time in the near future he will have to be replaced and to replace his input, that will have to be a quality player.

Senderos boost for Fulham

Soccer City FC at related • 0 views
Fulham could be handed an early Christmas present this year, with the news Phillipe Senderos is edging closer to making his long awaited debut for the club. The defender joined Fulham on a free transfer from Arsenal in the summer, only to rupture his achilles heel in training days before the start of the season.

Hmmm

Craven Cottage Newsround at related • 0 views

On the whole Senderos Hughes thing, I decided to look at all the games Philippe has played in and compare them to the games Aaron has played in. Except I couldn't do that because Hughes has barely played CB in league games this year.

Instead I looked at the games Senderos has played in this year versus the equivalent games from last year:

I don't know really.

Squad sheets: Fulham v Liverpool

Mixed emotions will accompany Liverpool on their annual trip to the Thames. The squad will reflect fondly on how they beat the hosts 5-2 in this fixture last season with a breathless and, at times, awesome, attacking display, but there will also be sadness at the recent loss of Lucas Leiva to a season-ending knee injury.

Analysis

Clint’s off the ball movement for the goal

Craven Cottage Newsround at related • 4 views

We've done this thing before, how tap-ins are only tap-ins because someone had the nous to get into the right position (e.g. Gera v Hamburg).

Note the following, then. Dempsey initially shapes towards the far post, then holds his ground in the middle, possibly in expectation of a Murphy cross.

Grygera

From the offal:

The Club can confirm that Zdenek Grygera suffered an ACL rupture during the match against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday 6 November.

It is estimated that the recovery period for an injury of this nature is approximately 6 months.

The Club will update further on Zdenek's progress during the course of his rehabilitation.

New signings, same old Arsenal

Arsenal Insider at related • 0 views

I can't believe I came on here yesterday writing with optimism about our new defensive tactics. I really should have known better to expect Wenger to be able to pull it off, however a good idea it may be.

The guy can't coach defence. Time and time again we see decent players come to the club and immediately look like clowns.

Fulham 4-0 Crusaders

Craven Cottage Newsround at related • 3 views

A nice enough evening stroll for the men in white. It wasn't especially pretty or effective, but a 7-1 aggregate win is emphatic enough.

The goals were all fairly routine and made us wonder why there weren't more of them. For 1-0 AJ slipped through, and calmly finished, for 2-0 Senderos sent Duff scampering clear, and he calmly finished, then Zamora scored at the far post to make it three, then Sidwell overcame a serious case of finishing yips to make it four.
