Lay it on the Line: Arsenal biases without reproach!
“The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.”
It has come to my attention recently that some Arsenal supporters on here have turned a little too impartial. I’m not necessarily saying that’s a bad thing. I just like to come on an Arsenal blog and read the story from an Arsenal supporters perspective. If I wanted an impartial view I’ll pick up a non-anti Arsenal newspaper…if I can find one. I’m not saying we should be completely biased…just that we should be viewing things from red tinted glasses. You see in an anti-Arsenal media world it’s up to us (the Arsenal faithful) to balance the perspective out a little.
To push away from the impartialness, I purpose a day of complete Arsenal bias…without reproach. It can be positive. I can be negative. It doesn’t matter; just let it all out, heck blow off some steam if you have too. You may ask a fellow blogger to explain their bias, but you may not ridicule them or cast any stones.
I’ll kick us off:
- At the beginning of every season I think we will win every title.
- Whenever we sign a youth player I think they will make it and they’ll be a bloody good player. However, my expectations on this have dropped over the last few seasons.
- Resigning Sagna is more important than it was resigning Theo Walcott.
- The gulf between our players and supporters is beyond a joke. ‘Arsenal Player’ needs to include more player videos and interaction so that we can feel more in touch with our team.
- Our fitness and medical regime needs a complete overhaul.
- Ozil needs to attend the ‘Koscielny’s school of strength’ in the off-season if he is to make it big in the premier league. There were knocks on Kozzer after his first season. What did he do? He worked as hard as he could to increase his core strength and power. The result: the best CB in the league.
- Kozzer is the best Centre back in the world at the moment.
- The Ox has all the tools to be the best player in the premier league in a few seasons time.
- At first I thought the signing of Giroud was a master stroke. Now it appears his heading ability has badly deteriorated and his confidence is going the way of Chamakh. If it doesn’t lift he will become nothing more than a squad player. At times I wonder if a level-headed Bendtner would be better than having Giroud.
- Yaya Sanogo excites the hell out of me. Stay fit son!
- The pole in goal is the best keeper in the league.
- I would trade Ozil to Barcelona if it meant we could have Cesc back.
- Out of a choice between Cazorla and Gnabry…I would choose Gnabry.
- If Vermaelen leaves he is pathetic and I was wrong about his commitment. Arsenal stuck with him through countless injuries yet he wants to leave now he doesn’t get the playing time. Dig your heels in and fight like hell to get back into the starting line up.
- Denilson did more damage to the crest than RVP did.
- Podolski has really disappointed me. His fitness base seems to be nonexistent which is not good enough for someone of his calibre.
- Gibbs is heading for a Diaby like career path.
Now remember…no reproach!
