Review Of The Day 7th December 2018

Morning mate,

Have to say I was disappointed in Dyche saying he thought the tackle was fine, it didn’t look good to me and it’s the sort of comment I’d expect from the likes of Warnock.

Thought Dyche was better than that.

On another note I’d love to see a top 10 list of the worst footballers for doing little or nothing in training.

I imagine the likes of Troy Deeney, Charlie Adams and Wayne Rooney would be in there.

{Ed001's Note - Charlie Adam and Troy Deeney usually work hard in training. They have both gone through periods where they don't but, in Adam's case in particular, they have to work harder than most to maintain fitness, let alone to improve it. Deeney is prone to periods of mentally sacking it off it must be said, but that, imo, is more down to bad management. It would be a difficult list to put together, but I will add it to the tops 10s to put in.

As for Dyche, he is under pressure of his own making, as he reverted back to long ball football when things were not going well. Now he is under pressure he is being defensive. I just don't understand why nothing has been made of Bardsley's over the ball challenge at all in the media. They normally make a meal of anything like that, but then Dyche is English and Klopp is a foreigner, so they won't want to take his side.}

Hi ed01. Just thought I would ask for you to do a report on Adriano. When I watched him for those 5 seasons in Italy I thought he was a Ronaldo on steroids. How good was he in his peak and what went wrong?

{Ed001's Note - I have added it to the to do list for you mate. It is odd his name just cropped up a few days ago with some discussion of just how brilliant he was for a short period.}

Agree0 Disagree1

07 Dec 2018 07:54:18
He was jaw dropping good. It was funny because I remember playing PES and you could score from anywhere with him! Completely overpowered. He just seem to disappear. Yes will be looking forward to that Ed.

{Ed001's Note - he was insanely good for a very short period. Big shame that it never lasted.}

07 Dec 2018 09:14:41
I watched few documentaries about him and how his career and lofe had the worst turn when his father passed away, as reports say they were very close, and sfter his father death he got so depressed and couldn’t concentrate on football any longer and moved back to brazil and joined a gang and gained so much wait.

07 Dec 2018 10:54:52
Good info that Moe mate and a very good reminder to us all that footballers are just like the rest of us if you strip away the money and fame.
We all struggle at times with different things and none of us are immune from human emotions and at the toughest times we all need good people around us far more than fame or wealth.

07 Dec 2018 13:13:44
A fair few Brazilians seem to of declined hard and fast.

07 Dec 2018 13:41:33
During the 2014 world cup a Brazilian coach said because many young Brazilian players are born into terrible poverty and football can be an escape route for them but once they hit a level of financial security they seem to stop progressing. I guess you have to have lived their lives to fully understand why and how it happens.

07 Dec 2018 19:59:30
Ronaldinho also in truth fits into that bracket! Only a few good seasons (or exceptional seasons) . Kaká also.

06 Dec 2018 14:02:34
I'm absolutely amazed fellaini didn't get a card for pulling guendousis hair! That was an incredibly dirty way to stop a player! I thought that was disgusting.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Dec 2018 14:39:21
Robert huth got 3 games ban for doing same to Fellaini.

{Ed001's Note - Cristiano Ronaldo got sent off for it.}

06 Dec 2018 15:51:46
Apparently he should have been sent off, violent conduct but because mariner took action because he saw fit to give a free kick. No more action can be taken.

06 Dec 2018 15:54:57
I was going to say I would of put it at close to a red, not especially dangerous, although might hurt someone's neck at speed, but just generally a terrible example for a role model to set kids, similar to spitting at someone.

06 Dec 2018 18:39:44
I was going to say he should be at a club like Stoke but the truth is he’s at the new rich Stoke City, they’re playing a very similar brand of 💩🏉.

06 Dec 2018 21:55:48
I agree Eden it's on a par with spitting and biting, football has always been a physical game and there will always be foul play along the line, for me an outfield player punching the ball off the line or pulling an opponents shirt in order to stop a certain goal are as upfront and honest as a foul can even be, but biting spitting and hair pulling? What's next scratching someone's face with their freshly painted false nails?

06 Dec 2018 13:12:34
Results against the top 6 are getting more and more competitive under Dick. Performance apart, for us a draw at OT after a win against the spuds after drawing Liverpool is a definite improvement from the wenger final years. Dick is definitely squeezing every sinue out of the squad possible. His decision making so far has produced results or at least improvement. Individual mistakes that are blunting our progress further are not Dicks fault, it is a residue from the previous era. The more players Dick gets in to mould his team, the more those mistakes will decrease. Progression is what we all want and that is what we are getting. You can't help be impressed with Dick, before during and after games. No snivelling like many other coaching and a real breathe of fresh air. The next test will come after a defeat or two, to see what the reaction is but i'm confident of the future.

"No snivelling like many other coaches"

06 Dec 2018 18:41:11
And he never mentions “Mental Strength” every five bleeding minutes.

I think Wenger hoped if he said it enough the players would miraculously get some!

06 Dec 2018 21:51:56
It looks like he is keeping them off the spirit as well.

06 Dec 2018 22:26:27
I always thought Arsene's words were a contradiction to what he actually saw and felt himself, when he said the player showed great strength he was defending his players from the accusations of lack of effort he knew were coming from the media and fans and the reason he knew what was coming was because it's exactly as the fans inside but was too close to the players to challenge them about it and risk upsetting them and falling out with them.

Stoke fans staying classy as ever.

{Ed001's Note - I know you Arsenal fans have a close relationship with them! I find it difficult not to want Stoke to keep getting relegated. Any set of fans that boo a player merely for getting his leg broken by one of their thugs deserves nothing but misery.}

06 Dec 2018 03:13:06
A win against the Toot and a draw away to United are quality results. On the downside Holding looks to have picked up a serious injury and we are down to our last 2 fit centre backs. Koscielny and Mavropanos appear some way off match fitness. With matches coming up thick and fast, the centre back situation is worrying and we may have to make a signing in January, meanwhile we have 7 matches in 23 days to contend with. Hopefully Monreal will soon be for again, giving us an option as he can fill in at CB. We can also rest Mustafi and Sokratis when we play our final EL match.
Congrats to Emery and the team for continuing the unbeaten run of 20 matches.

Agree1 Disagree0

06 Dec 2018 06:16:23
Kos could well be back this weekend.

06 Dec 2018 07:46:54
Kos came off again in the under 21 game.

06 Dec 2018 08:00:46
Yes Welsh he did, but after 85 minutes with no complications having played 45 minutes in his first game back a few days earlier.

Monreal is also back in training with the team and Mavropanos not far off.

05 Dec 2018 21:59:20
That will do, the unbeaten run continues and 4pts from Spurs and United games on the trot is very respectable, we've had worse days and half weeks :-)

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Dec 2018 22:10:55
After the energy we put into the Spurs game I thought we had every chance of losing to United so happy with a point, let’s hope all the potential injuries are nothing to serious.

United sure love kicking people. 🙄.

06 Dec 2018 09:11:32
I think most of us would have taken 4pts before the weekend mate and all of us would have gladly accepted 2pts from these two games back in the summer when we first saw the fixture list.
Dick said the players were disappointed in the dressing room after the game with only getting 1pt last night, which just shows how everyone's mentality has improved in the last 4 months, in days gone by getting a draw at old Trafford would have been seen as a reason to get the open top bus out by the players and maybe ask for an improved pay deal too :-)
Long way to go still of course but so far so very very good.

06 Dec 2018 16:04:41
I agree 62, 4 points is a damn good return really . I just wanted a win at OT so much.

06 Dec 2018 20:41:05
I think we all did Banbury mate it would have been super fantastic, i think much like a genuine title bid, it will come we've just got to enjoy the journey getting there, we are now we are out of reverse and moving through the forward gears again it's a pleasure to be a gooner again:-)

05 Dec 2018 20:31:20
Yes:-) Now can we hold it until half time? Or even increase it :-)

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Dec 2018 20:49:52
That would be a no then:- (.

05 Dec 2018 21:48:17
Our defending is bloody awful, this has to be addressed.

05 Dec 2018 21:56:23
20 unbeaten but I’m disappointed.

05 Dec 2018 21:59:07
Look on the bright side, Mourinho won’t be getting sacked! Phew. 😂😂.

05 Dec 2018 22:04:47
He will leave to go to Spain mate.

05 Dec 2018 22:08:21
Hopefully not for a few years yet Banbury, don’t want him spoiling everyone’s fun. 😉.

05 Dec 2018 19:07:51
Iwobi and not Lacasette but apart from that as expected tonight, still no Mesut in the squad, not looking good for him and Arsenal being together much longer imo.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Dec 2018 19:04:07
That’s a very defensive united side OMG😮.
