The calls to change to 4-4-2 are definitely becoming more numerous but why is that? One reasons is that, in the Premier League at least, the 4-4-2/4-4-1-1 is in vogue. The Manchester clubs have raced out of the traps using this formation (albeit different variations of the same shape). The red half have done what Sir Alex Ferguson’s teams have so often done in the past and used their pacy wingers to

I hear a lot of talk about the need for a back up for RVP, complaints about Park and Chamackh, heck even talk about Torres for twenty million quid. All of this is interesting. But, you want to know what I think is interesting? The two goals scored by Vargas on perhaps one of the biggest stages in South American football. Here is a player that knows where the back of the net is, and is able to


van Persie to the replacement of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. The substitution was made at a time when the team and Oxlade-Chamberlain in particular seemed to have a great deal of momentum. The reasons for the sub appeared unclear at the time and are still a mystery to those other than Arsène Wenger. The boss

Diaby has been the subject of much adulation after his towering performance at Anfield in September. And all of it is justified: the lanky Frenchman was linkman-incarnate against Liverpool, snapping at Sahin’s heels to win the ball, galloping past Gerrard with one telling touch, being a willing body both in attack and defense. Whether it was his hip-swivel and fake to make Suarez look silly, or the wonderfully nonchalant heel-flick to Cazorla when surrounded by the opposition; he was everywhere that Sunday, prompting a Twitter-wide volte-face of opinion among Arsenal fans and doubters.

Arsenal losing is obviously not an alien concept to any of us. We have an impressively vast portfolio of slipped leads, goals conceded against the run of play, and general variegation in momentum. Basically, if there is a cock, Arsenal have upped it. But this one-two jab to the genitals has hurt more than usual because of the uncharacteristic…toothlessness (I abhor using this word, but nothing

We have missed these options so far due to injuries but if these players can remain fit for the most part, you can see the benefit to the team this will have. Diaby is a player that I like very much and there are games in which perhaps he is better suited that Wilshere. He has a certain unique physical presence that is useful against teams that play with Sam Allardyce tactics. The argument comes down to

Arsenal or Arsene or Ivan as well where the selling club can change its mind at the last minute and decide "Ok, we want more money" or the same can be done by a player or his agent and things can go back to negotiations. Sometimes clubs care about perception and PR so they can stall and sit on a move that is outgoing until they can secure someone or just appear like they've been strong enough to delay something inevitable. All of these factors add to the perception and this little video of Tim Payton

    So let me stop reminiscing of days gone by and let me focus on our Welsh wonder. Let me start off by saying that I think it is quite obvious that Aaron Ramsey is better in central midfield. His partnership with Mesut Özil, his running from deep and his underrated ball winning ability makes him a ...Read more
