[quote]Your argument is that we need to fix something that cannot be fixed. In other words, you are saying that these other teams are better than us because of youth development and training. What you are missing from my argument is that we will never be on the same footing as those countries. S...

[quote]Just off the top of my head, I can't name a single country we've faced that was more athletic than we were.[/quote] Maybe Belgium, but only because they had the technique to express their atleticism. And we still had the best athletes on the field by a mile. ...

[quote]he problem with what you write is that it presumes that the best athletes "in the american sense" would lack the ability to also be the "most technical"...I laugh at that. Hand/foot-eye coordination and body control are what separates the true super athletes in America from the guys who can r...

Gervinho should have done better than he did, but god damn he missed more gilt-edged chances than Giroud. He had two misses against Man City in a game we should have won that were on a fricking platter. You can't do that and expect not to be benched, especially when Walcott was so god damn productive...

Coquelin and not Jenkinson? Christ Wenger. I guess Jenksinson is really on his way out, which is a shame. He's a more than serviceable RB. We've had way worse players get far more chances than he got. Far far worse. ...

[quote]NCAA has way too many stupid rules that get in the way of developing players. [/quote] Absolutely.

What I mean is we should be doing way better with the players we have. Flamini wasn't always this bad. It was also a massive mistake to let Jenks go on loan. We do need a CM to step up, but it's unlikely we'll get a player of the right caliber in January. ...

I really think the Algeria game shell-shocked Per. That game exposed his lack of pace in a massive way. Flamini looks equally as shell-shocked, but for some unknown reason. He doesn't even cover ground like he once did. Maybe it's age, but he should be relegated to the bench. Arteta is still a good ...

Despite the fact we had massive screwups that caused all three Stoke goals, we should have come away with a point. The first Stoke goal happens when you have three players with so little experience at RB, CB, and GK. Still, Chambers should have cleared it. On the second goal, I have no clue what Fla...

Chambers is serviceable at RB, but I can't stress how important having deep runners is on a team that is obsessed with receiving the ball to feet. Jenks is the better athlete, is a decent crosser, and would rather run onto the ball than have it played into him. That's why I prefer him. Defensively J...

Maybe Wenger doesn't rate Jenko, but he would have been extremely useful the last three months, and that's an understatement. We wouldn't have had to play a LB at CB for a month, and we would have had a defender off the bench. ...
