If Arsenal play like the Germans

Fans celebrating the upcoming 2010 FIFA World ...

Ok. i have been slacking in writing my thoughts about the World Cup, yesterday spend the night watching Germany laughing at the Argentinians, oh hell, four nil the score, i’m no Argentina fans, but i do admit, its pretty fun to watch the amusement of others. What? Messi? They are just playing with no objective, they wanted to play their usual attacking game, but hey when its gone tough, u need to change and response. The German obviously sticking to their fast counter attacking game plan there, and they have done one hell of a job. Well done, Tiger tank.

So What do we learn from the World Cup so far? One, the England based players looks tired after a long and difficult season, look at all the performer of the World cup so far, Ozil, Muller, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Klose from German, Arjen Robben, Wesley Sneijner, and Robinho, they all playing their trade outside of England. Look at the England team, they looked jaded, and ultimately broke under pressure. The only exception i can think of is Dirk kuyt that play his trade at Liverpool, i always admirer his tireless run, a cheaper version of Carlos tevez but without the egolistic.

So who caught my eyes? hmm Vittek somehow score some important goals and help to advance his team the second round. Honda of Japan, gives me goosebump when he socre one of the best freekick of the tournament, definitely a star in making. Too bad, my team Arsenal didn’t make a move on him, although tracking him for quite awhile before his move to Holland.

ok. lets talk abit about Cecs Fabregas and its Spain bench warmer. The little Spaniard wizzard recently stated that he is not leaving Arsenal after all, he “claim” he never mentioned that he will leave Arsenal at all. Ya right, flirting with Barcelona and silently watching the event from S. Africa. Oh, i know why he now want to stay at Arsenal tho, because he ain’t gonna get a starting place in Barcelona team, with Xavi and Iniesta, holding firm to their spot, there is no guarantee that he will able to play. Come mon, Cecs, make up your mind. It’s either u declare your loyalty to the team, or be gone with it. Arsene Wenger should sell him and use the transfer money to rebuild the team, BUY: Ozil, Muller and Honda…. ok i know its gonna cost alot of money, but so do Cecs, we aint gonna sell him cheap… Be realistic Barcelona, Yaya Toure cost 28 million, and Cecs is at least twice his caliber, so 50 million is way more reasonable.

What do Ozil, Muller and Honda, have in common, one, they are young, with just barely legal-20 yrs old, two, all three of them, prove themself in the World stage, they mesmerized the audience, they bring spark to the game. They are skillful and seems to play a fast and short passing game. So is Arsene Wenger philosophy?  Young – checked, Skill – checked, Fast – checked, short passing game – checked, proven in their trade – checked. By bringing in either one of them, it will makes the fans (me being one of them) a very happy man. Dull need change, and arsenal need spark. Ya i knew Wenger rule with another philosophy, he won’t fork big money for small player, he never bought any big player, he buy small player at cheap price and make them big. Ozil, Muller and Honda ain’t gonna be cheap after their superb run of form in the World Cup.

So, Arsenal still short of two defensive signing, Lorient central defender Laurent Koscielny seems to be on his way to Arsenal, i admit i know nothing about him, he seems to be a fine chap from what i read, so who will possible be the second defensive signing, Rangers defender Madjid Bougherra seems to be one hell of an option,

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has had a bid knocked back by Everton for Phil Jagielka and they have also looked abroad. But Arsenal were scared off Dynamo Kiev’s Pape Diakhate because of price while another on the radar is Benfica’s Algerian defender Rafik Halliche. Wenger, working for French TV station TF1, saw Halliche play for Algeria against England in the World Cup and is now monitoring developments on the 23-year-old. Arsenal are also considering a move for £10 million-rated German World Cup star Per Mertesacker, reports the Daily Mail. Gunners boss Arsene WengerWilliam Gallas and Mikael Silvestre departing. And if Sol Campbell joins Celtic it will leave Arsenal with just two senior central defenders, Thomas Vermaelen and Johan Djourou. (Sources from here and here, too lazy to write myself). needs to make at least two big-money signings, with both

ok, Gallas, silvestre, and Sanderos gone – good, get Halliche, he is cheap, and he seems to be eager enough to prove himself, Mertesacker probably gonna cost money (im not sure, havent go and check on his contract), Diakhate hate arsenal and cost alot of money, so get Halliche with Koscielny. Also, please give Johan Djourou another chance.

Goalkeeper need a revamp imo, reports suggest that:

Arsenal have offered Mark Schwarzer a coaching role as he prepares to complete a £4 million move to Emirates Stadium, The Australia goalkeeper, 37, is set to be the new No.1 at the London club but there have also been discussions about him joining the Arsenal backroom staff to work with the club’s other goalkeepers. Goal.com UK understands that the future of long-time goalkeeping coach Gerry Peyton is in doubt following a series of high profile blunders by first choice Manuel Almunia and his deputy Lukasz Fabianski in the closing months of last season.

Arsenal will listen to offers for Almunia but want to keep Fabianski, 25, and the club have high hopes for young keepers Vito Mannone, 22, and Wojciech Szczesny, 20. (Sources from here)

Ok. here’s my thought, Peyton need to go, he must take responsibilities for the errors Arsenal goalkeeper making. Why all the Arsenal goalkeeper suffer from calamity? Surely the GK coach done something wrong. schwarzer is good, he play with safe hand, good shot stopper, low profile, and old, therefore, giving chance to Mannone and Szczesny. As for Almunia, he must go, same with Fabianski, Both of them never look confident, look at all the great keeper in the game, they give confident and assurance to their defensive partners, arsenal defender never look comfortable to trust Almunia and Fabianski for crosses and high balls, when there’s no trust, there’s no fun.

Attacking front, with the conclusion of Marouane Chamakh, really hope to see Walcott to have an injury free season, hopefully the wise word from beckham (if there’s any) will make him a better crosser. I’m fine with the Walcott’s one trick wonder, this fella can fly if he able to realize his winning formula, same with Bechkam with his croses and Giggs with his dribbling. Do something Walcott, before you are getting OLD.

Wenger pls buy new player, im eagerly anticipating change in the current Arsenal squad.

As for the World cup, the game is on, German is probably the favorite now after thrashing the Argentinian, and i’m not any tactician, who knows, with the correct player, if Arsenal can play like the Germans, we will be trashing Chelsea and Man Utd like how German trash England and Argentina.

Lets pray.
