Carling Cup

Carling Cup

Post by bigsamsarmyusa on Wed Dec 02, 2009 7:59 pm

Well, Arsenal's "kids" are out the cup and City are through. AW's been warned often that it might end up biting him. How long can Arsenal fans go without winning a cup, since they'll not win the league?

And...Blackburn beat Chelsea on penalties!!!

I think Arsenals problems lie in the fact both Bendtner and RVP are missing and they have not replaced Adebayor. The rest of their front players although skilled are easily brushed off the ball due to their size (I think Breeze would call them midgets)!!
If Arsenal want to progress in the other competitions open to them I would think they need a big skillful striker.

It's another year without a trophy and considering they are falling behind in the league, the Champions League and FA Cups are big asks considering the fact that the big clubs put out their big teams, I would have taken the Carling Cup a bit more seriously.

On a side note, considering that everyone raves about Arsene Wenger and his kids etc, it is interesting to note that United's 'youth' team swept aside a full strength Spurs team with little effort while Arsene's kids lost to City. I'll admit that Arsenal were way but Spurs are a good team and it is no mean feat to beat them, especially how they lost to Besiktas the previous week.

I've always liked Wenger's footballing principles despite some obvious characters flaws. The young kids system has worked well in the past but I think Wenger himself has forgotten that past success has been as a result of playing these youngsters against teams like us or Fulham or Wigan. By the time the later stages came he would almost always add one of two of the 'big name' players (admittedly sometimes because of injuries or suspensions).

It can't be a surprise to anyone that a team of midget children - talented as they may be - failed to win away from home against a Man City team that cost £200m and who are clearly taking cup competitions seriously because they know the league is well beyond them. Wenger said if you don't play the youngsters in the cups when can you play them? Well that's a fair statement but it only works if you assume these 'trial runs' are for the benefit of the league campaign...but I'm not sure Arsenal are really benefitting in the league by constantly failing in the cups.

Yet again he ignored the need to bring in experienced reinforcements, he has some cash and should have bought a ball winning midfielder and a decent sized forward, if he had I suspect they would be running away with the league. Imagine if you stuck Anelka and Yaya Toure into that team!

Wenger's an arse, always has been.
He's never been gracious in victory let alone defeat. The spindly Frenchman needs a kick up the arse... and fortunately for me, he usually gets one every now and then, just like on Wednesday night.

This year will be the 5th year in succession that he ends the season potless... firstly, his record is starting to become no better than that of George Graham at Arsenal (pro-rata), and secondly, I wonder how many other top clubs would stomach such poor performance.

To be fair to Wenger he did admit he was a sore loser today during a SKY interview and he did it with a smile on his face. I think what he really wanted to say was "Yes, I should have shaken hands but that Mark Hughes is a first class licker of bollock gravy and I hate the man." But if he did he'd get in trouble.

I wouldnt shake his hand either because he's Mark Hughes and I can't forget that. Let's put this in perspective, people are siding with Mark Hughes over Arsene Wenger????

Can't I just be on opposite sides to both of them?

I get to choose my weapons first, and mine would be a Kevin Davies 50/50 challenge.
