  1. The post-goal unprovoked assaults on corner flags annoy me far more than they should.
  2. Oops

    Well, it shows Arsenal can identify a player. All we identified was a loan opportunity.

  5. Diedhiou’s first touch is generally crap, he’s ‘squared up’ much of the time when receiving high balls, he doesn’t drop off and spin into space or run the channels, and he always arrives half a second late at the front post when the crosses are delivered, and he definitely does NOT have a change of pace. He’s been here long enough to have been coached and seen the video evidence after every game, or he’s ignoring the coaching and doing his own thing. He simply has not stepped up since Afobe’s injury, and 4 games on the bench has not prompted any improvement or change in his playing style. I’ve never seen a physical specimen of his size lose more ‘easy’ challenges, or put less effort into getting into goalscoring positions. And yet his stats are better than average He’s an enigma who needs a bit of education from a proven forwards coach, and an extra yard of pace. Spud and the OP are spot on
  6. I played up front for probably 15 of my 20+ years of amateur football, and even I had it drummed into me that trying to receive the ball square on, leaning forward with a defender breathing down your neck will only have one outcome ☺ It's so frustrating for a midfielder who's just started a run forward to see the ball bouncing back 10 yards in the direction it came from, so surely the coaches have picked up on this and are trying to improve Fam''s ball retention?
  7. Diedhiou's body shape is generally all wrong when he is receiving the ball. He looks for the contact and is more interested in winning free kicks rather than using his physicality to get in front of the defender to bring the ball under control. Unfortunately he also doesn't have the pace to drop deeper and spin into the channels to chase the longer passes. He is generally very good with the ball in front of him/ running at defenders or attacking far post crosses. Afobe on the other hand, generally receives the ball on the half-turn, or gets himself into the right position to be able to control and retain possession. He has all Deidhiou's attributes, plus 2 yards of pace and the ability to arrive in the box at the same time as the ball, rather than 3 seconds after it's been cleared.
  8. The same bonkers forum where a missing cat topic is ‘Football Chat’
  9. And what the **** has it got to do with you?
