I've used a lot of words this week when talking about The Arsenal so today I'm keeping it succinct; no smart euphemisms or clever word play, just some blunt opinions and like all opinions, they come in different flavours .
Why are we struggling and look unlikely to finish in a Champions League spot any time soon? Why have we declined and faltered? Have a look at the squad
Park-not trusted to play/not ready?
Rosicky-best days long gone
Denilson-still paying him; he’s awful
Arshavin-does he even want to be here?
Miyachi-on loan. Why?is he or isn't he up to it
Frimpong-on loan. Why? is he any less effective than anyone else
These players alone are not to be relied upon for the course of a season or are nowhere good enough. This leaves a first XI that I would argue only 3 at most would get into the starting line up of the big clubs, one or two young hopefuls and some reasonable, but not great players.
It’s a terrible squad. That’s all there is to it. The where’s and whys are for those with more information than I
