CONSISTENCY: NEEDED MORE THAN EVER by WAC
What does it take to have a good run? I guess the players who made up the invincibles. Unfortunately, there will never be such a team ever again in the history of the premier league. The best a team can hope for right now is a great winning or unbeaten run spanning several games.
Given the present scope of the premier league, every team has several ways of showing consistency. Its either you make your home ground a fortress or you embark on an awesome away run or score at least a goal in every game or concede no goals in several games. Arsenal were, prior to our last 5 games, in neither category. However, having started this run we have to keep it going. .......Read the full article here
Inconsistency needs to be addressed by VSM
It has come to the point where we just don’t know which Arsenal will turn up from week to week. Its hell for us fans, not knowing if we’re going to win a game we’re expected to win. Now, everyone seems to be taking out their anger on Wenger, but the players must bear some responsibility for what happened on Tuesday night. Yes, Wenger’s tactical stubbornness was annoying; playing Ramsey on the right, Gervinho up front instead of Podolski, but at the end of the day, a strong Arsenal team should wipe the floor with League Two Bradford every day of the year. Sure, it was a spirited performance from Bradford, they were up for it and it showed, but when the draw for the quarter finals came out nobody could have predicted this. Or could they have? With the new inconsistent Arsenal I guess anything was possible and it proved so. .......Read the full article here
Arsene Wenger saw his team destroy Blackburn 7-1 yesterday but he would be more than happy to just take the three points every week whatever the result. The Arsenal boss feels that the four-game winless run didn’t reflect the quality of play from the team, and he now wants them to go on another winning run.
He said: “I felt that recently we had quite good performances but did not get the results. Today we got the performance and the result, which is ideally what you want. I do not give much importance to the seven goals, it is just important we won and played well.” .......Read the full article here
The 19 year-old Jack Wilshere has taken the Premiership by storm this season, and has easily won the Arsenal fans Player-of-the-Year competition with 41.4% of the vote.
The official Arsenal site runs a yearly poll for the fans to see who they have been the most impressed with, and although Robin Van Persie has had an excellent second half of the season after returning from injury, and Samir Nasri had an excellent run at the beginning of the season, it was Wilshere that held his consistency over the whole nine months. .......Read the full article here

Arsene Wenger has announced that Lukasz Fabianski will keep his place in the Arsenal team for this evening’s game against Blackburn, and after keeping a clean sheet against Man City, Wenger wants the Pole to prove that he can be consistent.
Fabianski was roundly criticized by Arsenal fans after the dreadful 3-2 defeat by Wigan, but Wenger believes that he did well to recover from that against Man City.
“I believe it was a good reaction and that’s what you look for,” said Wenger. .......Read the full article here
The ex-Arsenal defender Lee Dixon doesn’t think that his old team can win the Premiership this season, but is of the opinion that they will not be far away, and could maybe take the title next year if Wenger splashes out on a couple more players in the summer.
He said: “I think the damage has been done over the last four or five games and certainly against the big four teams.
“It was a great result against Liverpool and we’ve done the double over them.
“The important thing now is to try to get some consistency until the end of the season. .......Read the full article here
Arsene Wenger saw his Arsenal team move even closer to the top of the Premiership with the 3-0 win over Aston Villa, and he believes that Arsenal can go all the way if they keep up their consistency against the smaller teams.
“It makes it interesting now.” he said. We are in a strong position. We can have belief but it’s a long way to go and we have to keep our feet on the ground and continue to improve together.
“I could say we would win the games but you couldn’t predict that our opponents would drop the points. .......Read the full article here
