Another Loss: Lack of Consistency in Arsenal

Tanade MohamedContributor INovember 15, 2008

I didn't watch the match.

I was having breakfast when I went to look at the results and I choked on my waffles.

Arsenal 0-2 Aston Villa

Another loss after beating our biggest rivals. This was supposed be our rise from the ashes, a chance for a serious run for the league.

I didn't watch the match or highlights but I have read a few articles on the loss. Each of them say we were completely outplayed by Aston Villa and that is, frankly, unacceptable. There seems to be no consistency in the first team.

Consistency is what is supposed to separate the Big Four from the rest, and we have lost it. What we need is a strong defensive midfielder.  Also, we need to be more physical with our opponents because we are starting to become the lightweights of the Big Four.

What's even more worrisome are the next two league games, Man City and Chelsea. Man City is on a bad run and want to fix that fast. Their attack force has pace similar to that of Aston Villa. Chelsea is, obviously, title contenders and it is a must-win game for us; if we want to stay in The Big Four.
