Arsene Wenger is actually a Middle Class Indian!! Part II

This Article is for Fun only. Do not read it seriously.

FFP and Corruption
Indians do not bother about the corruption at the smallest level. Driving offences, paying for the Government Doctor, Passport verification, traffic violation, government offices, donations to schools, Real estate black money, buying without bills etc… The list is endless. Generally, no one challenges it. All they care about is getting away from huge actual fines or to get their job done quietly. They are ready to pay bribes in smaller amount instead of paying huge actual fines or following the rules. When someone does the same corruption at the bigger level people get agitated and talks about it everywhere. They slam, curse, criticize, blame and abuse, etc. Indians predominantly use the Social media for such abuse only.
The Financial constraint placed upon Arsene Wenger has made him the chief promoter of Financial Fair Play (FFP). Arsene was very vocal in his support for FFP, but that did not stop Arsene from selling his players for inflated prices to his rich rivals. Arsenal being a selling club during this period made lots of money selling some of the players for a ridiculous amount of money. Only when it came to buying new players, Arsene started to moan about the inflated market and irresponsible spending of other clubs. Although Arsene did not buy any established starts until recently, he still continued to spend money on potential youngsters. Some of the young and mediocre players were on the ridiculous amount of salary. Arsene bought several teenagers around the world at inflated prices and paid them huge sum. The flat salary scale benefitted largely the average players and kids. High profile stars left Arsenal but Arsene was complaining about FFP every time some big clubs stole a player. Do not forget, Arsenal always had a big squad with huge wage bills.
Arsene Wenger is a perfect middle class Indian. He does everything as per the rule, nothing illegal.

Very good Savings, poor investing and very bad marketing
Indians are very good at saving money. Indians tend to manage their expenses within their income levels. The overdraft option in the bank accounts is rarely used by Indians. Recently the usage of credit cards has changed our attitudes towards saving, but traditional Indian families are experts in saving money. Indians make mistakes when it comes to investing and marketing. Real estate, Penny Stocks, ULIP’s etc. are real examples of the poor choice of investments. Most branded shirts were made in South India, but successfully marketed by somebody else. Indian manufacturing sectors are a real feeder for big marketing companies.

Arsene Wenger is brilliant in terms of saving money. He is very conservative in his approach and avoids high level risks. He always managed to spend within the allocated budget. Just like the Indians, Arsene did make many poor investments. Too many penny stock players like Bendtner, Diaby, Chamakh, Denilson, Park, Djourou, Gervinho, Ryo, Wellington, Silvestre, Squillachi, Santos etc.. Although these players cost less, the cumulative salary of these players is massive and it’s a purely waste of Arsenal’s time and money. Players like Modric, Andy Carroll, Bale, Suarez, Torres, Downing, Lescott etc. were purchased by bigger clubs at inflated prices. Arsene did sell many players for profit but none of them were sold at an inflated price. Ronaldo too wanted to quit Man U but Fergie made Real Madrid pay for him. Cesc Fabregas, RVP, Nasri etc. Were sold at reasonable or fair prices, but none of them were sold for crazy money.

Praying mantis style

I am a Big Guy

I am a Big Guy

There is a huge gap between the rich and poor in India. Labours are generally not treated well. Office Assistants, Tea lady, Cleaners and many other manual labourers are not treated equally. People are respected based on their pay grade. Indians tend to bully the smaller guys. Their attitude completely changes when they enter the Boss cabin or when any higher authority is around.

Arsene does the same to smaller selling clubs. Many teenagers are signed for from smaller clubs. Arsene never showed any spine or fight when a big club come in with big money offers for any important player. Selling RVP to MAN U was a real shock to all fans. To add insult to the injury RVP won the farewell title for Fergie. Bulling small guys and rolling the tail to a bigger guy. Much explanation not needed, Arsenal humiliates smaller teams with some great artistic football, but gets bullied by every major club.

Few other Similarities

  • Succeeds away from home and fails at home. Arsene Wenger is successful in England and Japan than Monaco.
  • Surviving Indian – Less Chance of getting fired even while under performing
  • New Rich Indian – Buying iPhone and covering it with a 100Rs. Case. Playing RVP and Cesc along with Alumnia, Chamakh, Denilson etc.
  • Indian Government Employee – Believing your own hype and experience. Arsene Wenger said “Very few can teach me about football management”. Almost every government employee close to their retirement will use the same exact words.
  • Loyal Indian – Loyalty to the Employer.
  • Lack of Killer Instinct – Indians are too soft on their rivals. They always tend to be fair and try to play by textbook rules.

0-2 : Man City Vs Arsenal Match Report. Francis Coquelin – New leader emerges

Arsenal began the game from where they left off against Stoke city. Arsenal played a high intensity game against a better team in terms of quality. Stoke were nasty and there were some high intense tackles flew around, but the match against Manchester city was more about the technical quality of Arsenal team, they combined it with their energy. It was clearly evident from the starting line up and the way Arsenal started the match that Arsenal badly wanted a win just like they did against Stoke city FC.

Arsenal record against top four teams were really embarrassing. Although Arsenal started this season with a win against MCFC 3-0 in the Community Shield, but lost 2-0 lead in the EPL match at Emirates and ended the game at 2-2. Arsenal had lot at stake but Abu Dhabi club has the danger of drifting away from their Russian rivals in the EPL race. Weekend football results were least favorable for Arsenal. Every possible result went against Arsenal.

Thank god. Just only one DM

Thank god. Just only one DM

Surprisingly Arsenal started a team identical to that of team that started against Stoke. Bellerin replaced the injured Debuchy and Aaron Ramsey replaced Thomas Rosicky in the starting line up. Thankfully there was no Flamini in the starting line up. Coquelin and Ospina deservedly kept their place in the starting line up. Arsenal has wealth of midfielder in their squad but it was always puzzling when they start the match with Flamini and Arteta.

First Half

Koscielny picked up an early yellow but Arsenal started the match brightly. Arsenal Midfield was full of energy and played a high intensity game. Arsenal team took the fight to Etihad. There was no holding back. Sanchez was threatening, Giroud came close but he could not make it count. The neat passing between Sanchez, Ramsey, Monreal and Giroud made Vincent Kompany to make his usual rugy tackle on Nacho. Manuel pellegini thought it was a dive in his post match interview. WTF Manuel, it was a stone wall penalty, but with Arsenal’s luck with referee decisions fans were surprised that the referee gave us the penalty. Santi stepped up and scored. The joyful Arsenal fans had to go through some nervous moments during the final few minutes of the first half. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was clearly not in the level of Ramsey, Santi, Coquelin and sanchez, he kept losing the ball putting the team under pressure.

Second Half

History suggest that Arsenal fans can never rest, even when they were leading 4-0 at the end of first half, but this team was not nervous, they continued their dominance. Man City made some changes replacing the underrated James Milner. The Ox was replaced as expected. Though he had his moments but kept losing the balls putting the team under pressure. Hard working Sanchez was fouled by Jovetic. Awesome Santi stepped up again to deliver the dead ball into the box. Man city were known for their defense, but there was some chaos in organizing the defense for the free kick, Giroud took full advantage of it and headed the ball in. The goal made the fans go wild, but his celebrations would have made the day for the ladies. Kompany stayed on the pitch in spite of his tackle on Alexis. Flamini could have made it 3-0, but at the end it was a good win for Arsenal with a clean sheet.

The players were really knackered. Ramsey was visibly tired at 85th minute. Everyone’s hard work paid off.

Players

Santi dance

Man of the Match : Santi Cazorla. He did everything in style.

Flop of the Match : Alex oxlade-Chamberlain

It was not a good day for Ox. Bellerin and Ospina played well. The attacking threat of Bellerin will increase in multiple folds when Arsenal players starts to trust him little more. Coquelin was a real leader on the pitch. He continued his fine form and he is going to keep his place in the starting line up. His passion and awareness was really good. The 23 year old was instructing, shouting, tackling, intercepting but most importantly kept his cool.

Well done lads.

Arsene Wars : The FORCE AWAKENS. Time to Order the Statue for Arsene Wenger

Arsenal Vs Stoke City 2-3

There is nothing to talk about the game. Its the same case for several years.

1. We start well

2. Concede goals

3. Chase the game

4. Score few goals

5. Lose the Game fighting.

In the game against stoke there was only one difference. We skipped the point one and started with point two. After that its the same story.

Everyone knew Arsenal team is a very good team in Europe. Only Arsenal fans will argue that its one of the top teams in the world football right now. The facts, opinions, FFP, financial argument, big spending etc.. are slowly fading away. The poker game of Arsene wenger is coming to an end. Sad times but its true. The Fans and pundits were proven right again and again. Arsene wenger is not changing anything to prove them wrong. There is no need for him to change his style. He has got too much powers. We always defend our beloved manager for what he has done to this club. He is simply the greatest manager of Arsenal. I can only hope he does not damage his own legacy.

If not for this single Incident. Arsenal would have won the match easily,

If not for this single Incident. Arsenal would have won the match easily,

Arsenal is a Mid Table Team

The usual case of shambolic defending pops up every now and then. This is the not the first time we are leaking goals in every direction. The pathetic display of our performance will be forgotten once we have couple of wins in next few matches and crawl our way towards top four. I am huge Arsenal Fan, few years ago I was arguing hours defending wenger and slating players like Fabregas, RVP etc… I am running out of excuses. I am not winning any argument. The will to defend my own club is fading. We were bullied throughout the pitch. Big teams hurt us with their quality and strike power. Small teams hurt us by playing dirty. We are not strong enough to defend against smaller teams and also we are not good enough to win against big teams. We are a mid table team with a good manager. He used to be great.

How to be a Happy Gunner?

I developed a formula to be a Happy Gunner. Its Arsene’s Guide to a Happy Gunner

1. Always live in the past

2. Be deluded and think the squad is best. Be happy when other teams lose.

3. Blame the referee and rest of the world for the defeat

4. Always talk about FFP, Big spending Clubs, greedy players and young future stars.

5. Celebrate Fourth Place Trophy

Anybody in their right might will not question the Loyalty and contribution of Arsene Wenger to this football club. He brought most supporters into this club. Its sad that many of those supporters are turning against him.

Statue for Arsene Wenger

Its time to order that Bronze statue for the man who transformed Arsenal football club into one of the greatest club in the world. I don’t he will even achieve the level of his past success at this club. Its time to say good bye to our classy manager. He should have moved upstairs after the FA cup glory. I hope he wins another trophy this season. I wanna see this man have a great farewell. There is no way he is going to be sacked. Either he retires or moves upstairs paying way for some other manager to take the team forward. He deserves a better farewell. Keep your Arseneout banners out  of Emirates stadium.

Few more stupid ideas for FA chariman Greg Dyke

Just Read the comments from Football Association Chairman Greg Dyke. The following is the extract.

On Tuesday, the FA sent out its first draft of proposals to reduce the number of non-EU players within English football by up to 50%.

“The present system is chaotic,” Dyke told BBC Sport.

“There are mediocre players that come and take squad places – those could be filled by young English players.”

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/29239932

The idea proposed is to replace the Foreign mediocre players with Overrated English players. Not a bright idea. English premier league is not the only way to improve the local English Talent. It should start at youth levels. Here are few more ideas to reduce the foreign imports.

LOL ways to increase English talent and reduce imports

brainPopularity

Why does everyone wants to play in the English Premier League? EPL is one of the most popular league in the world. It is the dream of most football players to play in the EPL. The first step is to divert this dream. Reduce the popularity of the EPL, this would automatically force non-EU players to dream about other leagues.

Broadcast

EPL is being broadcasted throughout the world. Even the remote parts of India and Africa are able to watch the live broadcast of English Premier League. Also there is a huge fan following for the major EPL clubs in Asia, Africa and other countries. If FA ban the broadcast of these matches to Non-EU countries then any professional or small boys would not want to play for the Premier League. 50% ban on live telecast of matches would automatically reduce the number of foreign imports.

English Players in Club Team

Force Every manager in the EPL to play the boring Roy Hodgson way. This would enable the English players to play their usual game for both England and the Club. Make it compulsory for EPL teams to play the English International players in every game.

Ban the Scouting Network

Ban all the clubs from scouting players around the world. Since only Elite players are welcomed in England, there is no point of scouting. Elite players can be easily selected from World cup and Euro Qualifiers.

Salaries and Transfer Fee

Why are the clubs looking for Foreign talents? Andy Carroll costs around 35 million pounds where as Fabregas costs only 28 Million. Public announcement should be made that no English player is worth more than 10 Million Pounds. This would stop clubs from buying players cheap.

Salary Cap and Regional Players

Players are attracted towards money and keep changing clubs. Career of many players like Jack Rodwell goes downhill once they move to big clubs. There should be a rule for players to play for their local team only. London Players should play for London Clubs only. Manchester Players should play for Manchester Clubs only. This would stop players like Danny Welbeck being replaced by foreigner Falcao.

Foreign Owners

Most of the EPL clubs are owned by foreign investors and sponsored by foreign brands. FA should reject all the money from these owners and sponsors. Around 50% reduction of Foreign money should be an ideal start to encourage local investors and players. Local investors will care about their club and players.

Strip the EPL title from Manchester City

Current EPL champions Manchester city had only Joe Hart in their starting line up. Liverpool had more English Players than Manchester city. Strip the title from Manchester city and make Liverpool the champions of English Premier League.

Reject World Cup and Euro

If none of the ideas work there are more than one way to win the world cup. Reject the Existing world cup by FIFA. Start a New world cup. Replace the Euro with UK and World cup with Common Wealth. This would increase the chance of England winning a CUP.

LOL..

Is Ozil the new Arshavin? The best number 10 in the world on Wings…

Arsene’s Admission

Arsenal are not a strong physical team. The need for a strong physical presence in our midfield was well established. If Arsene believes the same like everyone else then he must have addressed it during the transfer window. Once transfer window was closed I was under the assumption that Arsene is thinking differently to fans and media. He made us believe a physical presence is not needed at the end of the transfer window, I never thought he would admit the weakness

Arsene Wenger’s Admission

” I think it’s good recruitment, we took Debuchy to replace Sagna and three young players, including Chambers, promising, Welbeck and Sanchez.

On the whole I am very satisfied. We might be able to do a little more, people say that we lack a physical presence in midfield, one profile at a Vieira or Petit, it’s true that this is what we need “

Why would you not address the weakness? If you have a plan to win the league then how come you ignore the weakness? Unless your ambition is something else.

Is ozil the New Arshavin?

LineupOzil on Arshavin’s Position

Arshavin had an immediate impact when he arrived at Arsenal. He was heavily featured on the wings. His best position was on the middle. We shifted him to the left as part of team formation or just to accommodate both Fabregas and Arshavin in the same team. We always played a play maker on the wings. This has worked for Arsenal. We did manage to play well with players like Nasri, Gervinho, Arshavin etc.. on the wings. Where are these players now?

We managed to win games with play maker on the wings. We won the FA cup with a play maker on the wings, but we have a unhappy player on the LW. All the players played in that position were unhappy. The fans turn their back on them and soon they leave the club.

I do not want to think that Ozil might leave this club. He made an immense effect on our team. We won our first trophy in his first season after so many years. He was undoubtedly one of the best number 10 in the world. Now we have shifted him to LW to accommodate both wilshere and Ramsey in the middle. Though Jack Wilshere made a huge impact from the middle, I still believe its waste of having ozil on the wings. He did not have much effect on the game. The fans are already started to blame him.

If our plan is to play the both Ramsey and Jack in the middle why not have someone like Joel & Podolski on the wings? I love ozil but will rather have someone like Podolski/Joel play on the wings rather than him.

Podoski and Joel Campell

Its clear that Arsene wenger does not trust this pair. They both did not feature in the match against Manchester City. I believer either or both would leave the club in January. I would love to have these players in our squad and use them.

Debuchy

Injuries cannot be an excuse for several years. Every year we end up blaming the bad luck. Our squad is too thin. Arsene always have a thin squad and blame on the injury to key players. He always hopes to win matches with starting 11. To win the league you need a strong squad not just 11. We are always short of 2-3 players. Hope it does not hurt us badly. Come back soon Debuchy.

Arsenal Vs Man City : Stupid Arsenal Lost two points or Lucky Arsenal gained one Point

Arsenal vs Manchester City

One of our first biggest match of the season. Arsenal started well with their attacking moves. Ramsey tried his luck with some long range shots. The match looked like Arsenal Boys vs Manchester Men. We were bullied, kicked and fouled. The referee was reluctant to give any cards. Our football and passing ability was clearly visible when we out played the Sheik’s team during the opening minutes.

Ozil on the Left wing

There are certain things that cannot be explained when it comes to transfer policy, team selection and substitution. The best number 10 in the world started on the wings. I think this is the only way to accommodate both Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey into the squad. Is that our best starting 11. I am not sure. Ozil is not a winger. He is also not athletic enough to track back. Arsene is taking the Arshavin route for Ozil.

free header 2Arsene Wenger : ” we are an offensive team “

First Goal.

Nacho Monreal is not going to catch Jesus navas. He was the fastest man on the pitch. Navas made a great run with the ball and delivered the ball to Sergio Aguero. No one tracked Sergio and he punished Arsenal. Who is suppose to track his run? We don’t bother to keep our defensive shape when our team is in attack mode.

Jack’s Equalizer & Sanchez Yellow card

Laurent Koscielny forced Aguero to lose the ball, within next three touches we equalized against the giant looking Man City. Sanchez to Ramsey, Ramey to Jack and we celebrated. It was a well taken goal. Clichy looked like an idiot when jack scored.

Jack was having a great game. The second goal went through him. Very good header from Jack brought the perfect volley from Sanchez for our second goal. Sanchez loved and celebrated wildly. The referee decided to use his cards. Arsenal lead against the bully boys.

Same old Arsenal

leichester free headerWho will track the Striker to stop the free header?

Only one thing that is consistent about this Arsenal team is their defending. They make some of the silliest mistake in the game of football. We as Arsenal fan knew that it only takes one set piece for Arsenal to lose the game. We have seen it several times in recent years and it was time again to see once again. We did concede our routine set piece goal. There are certain things we never change or learn from it. Stupid Arsenal conceded again. Its always difficult for the midget Arsenal team to defend against the defensive giants, that does not mean you have to make their life easier. It was a free header. We just warped and gifted the second goal.

Nervy Final Minutes

We have seen time and time again once we concede some silly goal, the confidence goes out of the roof. It becomes easier for the opponent. We could have easily conceded multiple goals. Danny welbeck tried his luck after being down for some time. We escaped with a draw, but did not escape from Injury. Debuchy was stretched off, hope its not serious. The last thing we want is some long term injury to our defender. we were also lucky with the penalty shout against Jack.

Manuel Pellegrini

Shut up and stop whining. You should be an arrogant and ignorant idiot to claim those goals as illegal.

on the problems at the back… Arsene Wenger
We conceded two goals and I believe we are an offensive team. We go forward a lot but at the moment that’s where we can improve. YAWNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN

Though we all can be happy about the lucky point gained. We should have buried the game when we had the chance. I hope it boosts our confidence to go through the upcoming tough spell.

Left Wing : The Most unpredictable Position in Arsenal Line up.

As we are preparing for the one of the biggest game of this season. We face the richest and current champions of English Premier League. Also they were one of the first club to contribute towards FFP fine. They have a big squad of world class talents. They even managed to keep their key player Yaya toure by promising additional cake for his next birthday.

There is no denying that Man city are a better team. They have won two EPL titles in past three years. Arsenal as always unpredictable when it comes to big matches. In recent few years our record against top teams is much worse than Sunderland. We could not even beat David Moyes Manchester united team. On our day we are unstoppable. We have killed some major teams in the Champions League. Our stating 11 is good enough to beat any team in the world. We should be very pleased that we are facing the Sheiks team much earlier. Most of our players are fit and raring to go. Lets hope we remain unbeaten. Generally A draw will be considered as a good result. Its a bad result if we are really ambitious to win the league.

Man city will set up their team with Multiple DM’s and Strikers. Their quality in the Defensive Midfield and Striker might hurt us. If we started strongly then slowly we can get into the game and win it. Any error at the opening minutes will not be a good day for Arsenal team and Fans.

2014 first team LWPotential Left Wingers

Not just three points are on the line. The confidence of the New signings are on the line. Coming out with all three points will lift the squad massively. The last thing we need is for Arsene set up the squad negatively. We cannot setup the squad negatively and play for a draw. The quality of Man city will definitely hurt us badly if we play for a draw. We need to go for the kill. The last thing I want to see in the squad is both Flamini and Arteta starting the match. That would be sending a wrong message to fans and opponents. We cannot be scared of them if we really compete for the title.

Anyone Can play in our Left Wing

Left wing is the most unpredictable position in our team. Its the most flexible position as per Arsene. He will play anyone in this position. All other positions are almost fixed in our starting Line up. He even played Gibbs in the LW. Historically we play a playmaker in the Left Wing. Nasri, Arshavin, Santi, Ozil, Rosicky, Jack etc… Played in that position in recent years. Only Gervinho and Podolski were close to proper wingers to have played in that position. Who will play in that position this weekend?

Here is my Prediction.

Lineup

Looking at the training pictures Joel Campbell is heavy featured. I guess he might start for Arsenal at the LW position. Lukas Podolski and Joel should be fighting for that position. For some reason Arsene does not trust Podolski much. This season will determine the careers of both players. The world cup winner has to have a big impact this season to be considered as a successful at Arsenal. Campbell has to cement his place soon to have any chance of having a career at Arsenal.

We are always in for a surprise in this position. Ozil or Santi may play there. Who knows?

We already defeated Man City this season for a title. We need to beat them again for another title.

Good Luck Sanchez and Welbeck to kick start your Arsenal Career.
