Post Match Analysis & Ratings plus Thoughts and Feelings

So the first leg of the champions league play off is out of the way and i must say tonight i am somewhat satisfied. I feel as if tonight we played a great game, broke down celtic but also scrapped when needed. I was very imperesed once again with our centre back pairing and was also very pleased to see some eagerness and ambition going forward. I feel everyone worked their socks off and cant wait till we bring em back to the emirates and finish em off!

Ratings:
                                                                     Almunia
                                                                          (7)

                   Sagna                   Gallas                        Vermaelen                   Clichy
                      (7)                        (8.5)                               (8.5)                           (7.5)

                                 Fabregas                      Song                          Denilson
                                      (9)                                (8)                                 (7)

                                 Bentdner                 Van Persie                 Arshavin
                                    (6)                                  (8.5)                           (7.5)

Subs that appeared:
Diaby -(arshavin) 69′ (7)

It wasnt the most convincing and dominating of victories but what is important we got two away goals and won. We played well when called upon and were also able to scrap and not just win through beautiful football. I can see Wengers tactic of having Bendtner on the wing to knock the ball down to R.V.P and Arshavin but dont feel he gets fully involved. I would love to see a front line of Eduardo, Van. Persie, Arshavin just to see how it would work out.

On another note i have been begging Wenger for a new signing since the start and even before the window. For the first time ever tonight i actually questioned whether we need a new player. Okay! Dont shot the messenger hear me out: We have such an all round team on the pitch, i am a big fan of Song thought he was our most improved player last season and would not mind seeing him start for us in that holding role at all! Our centre backs seem to be geling well and Gallas seems on top of his game since the departure of kolo. In the middle of course we have cesc. Up front we have two world class  strikers (Arshavin and V.Persie)…and Bendtner (who is tall!!) with Eduardo on the bench.
All this with still Rosicky dare i say it to come back, Nasri, Walcott and Vela. Also Wilshere and also Diaby who impacted on tonights second goal.
Alright so we are not perfect and may not last the season with injuries and the usual..but i felt tonight we were really complete. If we were going to buy id say another centre back to add to the depth of the squad, i was first begging for Hangeland who i said would be our ideal signing and perfect for the club but i am really impressed with our CB’s at the moment. Possibly a back up striker because other than who we start and Eduardo on the bench no real impact striker buy yeah. My one concern is , if Song gets injured whos gonna play in the middle..cesc? and then lose the creativity and golas scored having to stay back…hmmmm…anyways, Things are looking good!

Sorry for the long post…its been a while!

Armand Traore is ineligible to play against Arsenal under the terms of his loan move from the Gunners.

Arsenal will be without Robin van Persie, Eduardo and Mikael Silvestre, who all have groin injuries.

Gael Clichy (back) is sidelined along with William Gallas and Tomas Rosicky.

 


Portsmouth (from): James; Johnson, Campbell, Distin, Hreidarsson, Kaboul, Pennant, Mullins, Hughes, Davis, Belhadj, Crouch, Kanu, Utaka, Basinas, Pamarot, Cranie, Gekas, Wilson, Begovic (gk).

Portsmouth manager Paul Hart:
“Whatever team Arsenal put out they will have a strong side.

“They have proved in the past that they have strength in depth. They give young players a chance and on the whole they do not disappoint

“I have got to prepare my team for a tough game.

“We still need the points, I don’t think we are safe until mathematically it is not possible for us to go down. We need to keep our foot on the pedal.”

 

 

BIG-MATCH FACTS

Arsenal need one more victory to be mathematically certain of a top four finish and a place in the Play Off round for next seasons Champions League, Although, if they were to win this season’s competition, entry to the group phase would be automatic. To that end Tuesday’s second leg of the semi-final with Manchester United at the Emirates will be their priority, over and above a league clash on the south coast.

Portsmouth need six points from the last 12 available to be guaranteed Premier League football next season, but going into this game with a seven-point cushion between themselves and the bottom three, Pompey supporters must feel a seventh successive top-flight campaign is all but assured already.

Hart uncertain about future

Portsmouth have already lost home and away to Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea and would end the season without a single point against any of the so-called ‘Big Four’, should they lose to the Gunners.

Pompey are chasing their first league victory over Arsenal in over half a century, since the odd goal in nine top-flight triumph at Fratton Park on 29 March 1958.

Distance between the clubs: 79 miles (127 kilometres)

Wenger – “Efficient Ireland will be a threat” PLus Arsenal V Man City Preview

Wenger has singled out Stephen Ireland for praise ahead of todays match syaing he belives he will nbe a threat:

Match Preview

PREMIER LEAGUE
Venue: Emirates Stadium Date: Saturday, 4 April Kick-off: 1500 BST


Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas returns after three months out with a knee injury and Theo Walcott, Emmanuel Adebayor and Nicklas Bendtner are back.

But Robin van Perise and Eduardo (both groin), Abou Diaby (thigh) and Samir Nasri (virus) are all out.

Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy (knee) is a major doubt but Robinho is should be fit despite limping out of Brazil’s midweek World Cup qualifier.

Wayne Bridge could also be in line to return from a hamstring injury.


Arsenal (from): Almunia, Sagna, Toure, Gallas, Clichy, Walcott, Denilson, Fabregas, Arshavin, Bendtner, Adebayor, Fabianski, Djourou, Gibbs, Vela, Eboue, Silvestre, Song, Nasri.

Manchester City (from): Given, Richards, Onuoha, Dunne, Zabaleta, Wright-Phillips, Elano, De Jong, Kompany, Robinho, Bojinov, Bridge, Garrido, Fernandes, Evans, Etuhu, Berti, Vassell, McGivern, Hart.


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger:
“We have put ourselves in a very strong position because of the hard work we have done.

“But it is the final part of the season where every single game becomes massively important, nearly a decider.

“We have eight games in 24 days and our success will be determined by the squad and not by any given player.”

Manchester City manager Mark Hughes:
“It will not be a case of us trying to stop them playing because I have talent at my disposal.

“It is about having a game plan that will prevent Arsenal dictating the tempo of the play for 90 minutes.

“It isn’t a matter of getting in the faces of the Arsenal players and being physical, it is about having an effect on their game that enhances your own.”

BREAKING NEWS: Phil Brown – ‘Fabregas spat at us’ and also How Hull city are cheats

Well how about this, Phil Brown has come out today saying Cesc Fabregas spat at his assistant coach Brian Horton after the match has finished. Fabregas has denied the claims vividly as well as Arsene Wenger, Cesc has said:

“I categorically deny that I spat at anybody after the match. I have never done this in my whole career on the pitch, so why would I do it when I am not even playing?

“I can understand the frustration of losing a game to a dubious goal, that has happened to me many times in my career as well. But this is not the fault of me or any of the Arsenal players.”

Phil Brown’s team played a game of football yesterday that was clearly cheating, they waisted about 30 seconds on every spot kick there was and whenever Sagna or Walcott got the ball there was an arm either holding them back or tugging a shirt.

In all 5 Hull players saw Yellow in the match but there should have been at least 1 red card simply due to the amount of fouls and time waisting. It was very very funny when Hull went 2-1 and suddenly they were all rushing the free kicks and goal kicks. Hmm I wonder why?

Anyway were through to the semi final against Chelsea on the 18th April. Bring it on!

Match highlights to be posted later.
