Arsenal Love To See Their Fans Suffer!

Ipswich 1-0 Arsenal 2011 carling cup

How else can you explain the performance on Wednesday? Here we are, facing a side languishing in the lower regions of the Championship, have just been thrashed at the weekend and not having the new manager with the team, yet we contrive to lose this match and make it harder for ourselves to qualify for our first final in 4 years.

If we continue to give such a performance then I seriously don’t think we will end our title drought this year. Our much vaunted attack was nowhere to be seen. It was not as if we were a team of youth talents as the case in previous years. Our attack was lead by three full internationals, yet I don’t think they managed a shot at goal between them.

I was very disappointed with the defeat. It would have made the work so much easier if we had beaten Ipswich. Now we have to break down a dogged defense at the Emirates and hope we do not fall prey to the counter attack again. It will not be easy at the Emirates as Ipswich proved that they can defend very well.

The other problem with the defeat was that it adds further pressure to the team in a period where fixture congestion may become an issue. Basically all our matches from now until the middle of February are must win matches. We cannot afford to slip up on anymore League matches while the cup matches are now do or die. The lads will be playing 2 games a week for the near future. I am afraid if the fringe players do not buck up then we will be in a lot of trouble. Twice in a week, players like Bendtner and Arshavin have failed to impress. It’s no wonder that these two are linked with moves away from the Emirates.

Although disappointed, I am still optimistic that we will conquer all before us starting with West Ham this Saturday and Leeds the following week. The team always make us suffer but I am hoping for a big surprise to end all suffering come February.

    I love that your headline. They love to see supporters have high blood pressure. It would have been better using the small guys than the big guys that lost. Shame. if i continue to comment, i will continue to get peeved.

    I am close to giving up. 53 years in I might finally have had enough. Hope is my worst enemy. Once that has gone it will be easier.
    Would someone like to tell me what is the actual physical point when managerial change is necessary?

    I think the problem with the players has to do with their mindset. Not unlikely that it’s all the manager’s fault anyway as he probably makes them think certain matches are not too important. If for instance the players are made to know that no match is unimportant and that it is a thing of pride to don the Arsenal shirt maybe their mentality towards these matches will change.
