Giroud's goal in the West Ham game was off of a decent counter attack.

I didn't see today's match, but I am just getting so frustrated with our lack of offensive output. This team is just not enjoyable to watch for extremely long stretches.

I don't even know what exactly I'd suggest we do different tactically. I just know this shite isn't working. Might be time to push Cazorla back out to his typical wide position. Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing a 4-4-2 with Theo or Arshavin playing off Giroud, Cazorla on the left, Ox on the right.

A healthy Diaby would do wonders for us right now considering we need someone who can evade/power past the initial line of high pressing which is causing us so many problems. Arteta's lack of athleticism, Jack's reluctance to attempt that, and Mertesacker's weak passing ability are being exposed right now. Teams have us figured out and we haven't adjusted at all. That's what is most depressing about all of this.

Diaby got injured so long ago, when is he expected back?

The ominous/illusory "couple of weeks away," I believe.

I'm never one to scream and shout "SIGN SOMEONE ARSENE"! But yeah, we need someone who can link up with Giroud and Podolski through the middle. Wilshere and Cazorla look gassed at times for good reason.

ETA: André Schurrle is probably too expensive for Arsenal, but he's not a bad option. Lewis Holtby might be a bit cheaper, but he's also expressed interest in returning to England.

Maybe Cesc secretly hates Messi and demands a midseason transfer.

Found the score and was extremely glad I didn't watch it.

I thought it was Walcott's goal? From the Giroud pass. Still, we aren't really good at counter-attacking.

We're basically going back to the early noughties approach that Chelsea mimicked in recent years. We don't really have the players to do it though. We have the players to play a high tempo/high pressing system. It's really frustrating that we've given up attacking nous for defensive rigidity, when we are not all that good at defense.

re: Arsenal 2012/2013 Season Long Thread
I didnt see the match either. im so sick of my friends knowing im a huge arsenal fan blurting out the scores to the game when they know i work almost every saturday morning. After hearing the score i couldnt bring myself to watch it. So wtf happened? I know there is a lot of season left, but this isnt looking to good for an arsenal team that may have the least amount of points under arsene ever at this stage in the season.


At times this team looks like one of the best in the world, other times it looks like a relegation squad.

Serious question: Would Arsenal be better off if Bendtner wasn't out on loan? We only have one target forward with Giroud.

Probably.. we haven't beaten a team with 11 men on the pitch in about 2 months..

QPR and Spurs both had 10.. and QPR was offside even.

He must have meant earlier in the year when we were playing well.

yeah some of the early games made me think we were getting trophies this year. Not so much anymore. This team has had some very impressive games.

Hey guys... my buddy has a case in London during January and wants to take in the Arsenal v Man City match... How hard will it be to get tickets and any particular way he needs to get them? thanks...

He has to either A: buy a club card and then by tickets online or B: try to buy tickets from people at the gate or via some other way. There is an arsenal ticket exchange facebook page that is pretty useful.
