Rice and Lavia is a potentially gorgeous combination. Wet behind the ears at UCL level? yes but complementary. Rice weakness in build up is cancelled by Lavia's comfort in pivot and Rice can protect him defensively.

Ricedo is yesterdays news. Time for Lice.


[Thread] Image
We covered a lot of this in our Havertz tactical thread but Lavia would still enable the 3-2-2-3 formation as he can take over from Zinny/Partey as a conduit in the build up phase. His favourite thing to do is collect it off CB's and remain deep, controlling from the back. Image
Rice is then free to dabble in the build up, take minimal touches if need be and then focus on joining in once the ball is closer to the centre circle and entering into opponents half. He is much better when facing the goal and being direct and aggressive in possession.

OTD 1939 final major #Arsenal game for Eddie Hapgood, one of the finest full-backs ever to have represented the club.

Born in Bristol in Sep 1908, he joined the Gunners in Oct 1927 from Kettering Town aged 19 for a fee of £1,000 what turned out be a real bargain. Eddie Hapgood, Arsenal.

Lightly built and a vegetarian, #Arsenal trainer Tom Whittaker put Hapgood on a new diet (yes, including meat) and to build up more muscle.

So having featured three times so far, 15 months after joining, he became basically ever present for over a decade in Jan 1929.

With Cliff Bastin, Hapgood is the other player who won all The #Arsenal first seven ever trophies during the 1930s; five league championships and twice the FA Cup.

He captained the club the last two seasons before the Second World War after Alex James' retirement in 1937. Arsenal captain Alex James ...

OTD 1928 final #Arsenal game for Charlie Buchan MM, a Sunderland legend and the first signing by the new manager Herbert Chapman in Jul 1925.

Buchan, a local Plumstead boy born in 1891 first joined Woolwich Arsenal at Manor Ground as an amateur in Boxing Day 1909 aged 18. Charlie Buchan, Arsenal.

Due to financial difficulties, Buchan soon left the club after just few reserve outings. Brief spells at Northfleet and Leyton FC before joining the Black Cats in 1911.

Standing just over 6ft and weighing 12st/3lb, the forward was a tough nut for the defenders to crack. Image

Charlie spent 14 seasons at Roker Park winning the league in 1912/13, Golden Boot in 1922/23 and is Sunderland's all time second top scorer with 222 goals.

During the WW1 Buchan became also a war hero. He was involved in the battles of Somme, Cambrai and Passchendaele..

OTD 30yr ago in 1993 only 18,817 attended Highbury to watch #Arsenal play a goalless draw against QPR in the first Premier League season.

That's 11 days before the FA Cup final v Sheffield W and some two weeks after The Gunners had beaten The Owls in the League Cup final.

#Arsenal had also won the league championship twice in the previous four seasons, being almost invincible in 1990/91 doing so.

It was of course the season when The North Bank was being rebuilt and the ground capacity was 29,000. Still the avg. attendance was 24,796. North Bank mural at Highbur...

It was a weird season with #Arsenal scoring the fewest goals in the league of all teams: 40 in 42 averaging 0,95 GpG.

That's equally (1923/24) the second worst figure in the club history with worst (0,68) being 1912/13, when we were relegated after winning only three games.

Moises Caicedo ~ The Definition of Elite!

A deep dive on why Arsenal should bring the Brighton midfielder at the Emirates🔴⚪️

[THREAD] #afc Image
Firstly, let’s look at his player profile:

Age: 21
Nationality: Ecudorian
Club: Brighton
Position: DM/CM
Height: 5'10

Avg @SofascoreINT rating: 7.09 Image
A versatile 6/8 hybrid who can win duels, evade the press, break lines, switch play, has good ball striking/combo play.

The way he uses one-touch passes to relieve pressure, his spraying of long passes to the wings, constant duel winning, press-resistance/ball-carrying and …

Last night, I finally understood Arteta’s attitude towards this game, and his pride.

We were all losing it after going 2-0 down - excuses we had already played the game in our heads and won.

He (and the players) had to be in the present. Deal with reality and a new story. >
2/ Ramsdale’s saved us all season. Last night he slipped up & put us on the back foot.

2nd goal : a perfect finish by Theo. That’s what he does.

Shades of Hull in FA Cup. Stunned stadium. Getting a harsh wake up call because we were all asleep and dreaming. >
3/ But we got back into it.

Despite timeawasting by the purple haemmorhoid - & a ref who literally went out of his way NOT to punish it, we were unlucky not to equalize before HT.

3rd goal : a set piece sucker punch. Not great defending. Again.

Emirates went dead silent. >

🗣️| Paul Merson on #Arsenal v Southampton: “This is a big game in the title race, and Arsenal need to get back to where they were. They've run out of luck a little bit - for all the last-minute goals they've scored this season, it's coming the other way now.

“Arsenal aren't……
🗣️| Merson: “Bukayo Saka was incredibly brave to take a penalty after his miss at the Euros. People miss penalties, and I'd be shocked if he didn't take the next one for Arsenal.” #afc
🗣️| Merson: “If you had to pick a game to bounce back this season, you'd take Southampton at home. I still think Arsenal will win the league this season, and they should be able to win this game.

Coletiva do Arteta, pré Leeds.
Como você passou seu aniversário?

Noel Gallagher sobre a briga pelo título: “Acho que se o City perder algum ponto aqui e o #Arsenal vencer contra o Leeds, quero dizer que está nas mãos deles de qualquer maneira, mas acho que se perdermos e eles vencerem neste fim de semana, acho que podemos dar o adeus título.
“Olha, quando estávamos no Emirates quando o City jogou contra o #Arsenal e vencemos eles. Todo mundo lá, todo torcedor do Arsenal estava dizendo que é isso, o City vai subir e o Arsenal vai cair.
“O que o #Arsenal fez? Eles venceram os próximos seis/sete jogos, marcaram 20 gols e todos nós reconhecemos campeões quando os vemos.

Arsene Wenger: “Estou muito grato por ter sido selecionado para o Hall da Fama da Premier League. Sempre quisemos dar algo especial aos torcedores e quando tens jogadores capazes de coisas notáveis, o mais importante para mim é a obrigação da perfeição. [@Arsenal]
Gostaria de ser conhecido como alguém que amou o #Arsenal, que respeitou os valores do clube e o deixou em uma posição em que pode crescer e se tornar ainda maior.
Fui o primeiro técnico estrangeiro e completamente desconhecido. Havia muitos céticos, a crença de que um técnico estrangeiro nunca teria sucesso na Inglaterra, mas isso não me perturbou. Para mim, foi uma oportunidade de mostrar às pessoas que tenho nível para dirigir o Arsenal.

(1/22) On the pitch this year, #Arsenal is drawing comparisons to the #Invincibles, but success in games also means big profits. In this 🧵, I will explain how this would mean that #AFC could afford to buy 3.1 “Mudryk” in the summer of 2023 under the new #FFP (#FSR). #Gunners
(2/22) This is under the assumption that #Gunners win the Premier League this season. A potential Caicedo signing is currently up in the air, but would impact the financials roughly the same as a summer signing.
(3/22) I mark the quality of my forecast on a scale from 1-10 depending on available information. In this case, the mark is a generous 2, since we do not have access to the 21/22 Annual Accounts.

(1/60) As promised, here is a thread on how the Top 6 in the Premier League will be impacted by the new Financial Sustainability Regulation (FSR), expected to have a dramatic impact on the summer transfer window of 2023. #MUFC #LFC #Spurs #ManCity #Arsenal #CFC #FSR
(2/60) Unfortunately, my threads tend to get really long, but the subject is complicated, so you have to bear with me to get through this. First, we will look at the relevant rules of the FSR (i.e. the “new” FFP rules).
(3/60) After that, we will look at the forecast of each Club, starting from the bottom. Lastly, we will cover the quality of each forecast, since that differ due to available information, and I will also add some thoughts on the margins of error.

➡️ Arteta-Ball dominates
➡️ Do Arsenal's right backs have a purpose?
➡️ Bobby Nketiah
➡️ Rashford aside - Where is the penetration?
➡️ Saka is Arsenal's John Barnes - Shaw abandoned him

#ARSMUN #Arsenal #MUFC
This is not a ETH side... sitting back and hoping for moments of quality, but he is making do with what strengths the squad currently has which at the moment is relying on Rashford to conjure moments of magic as soon as United win the ball back and opponents are in disarray..
As for Arteta, this side looks like it can dominant any fixture it goes into but the litmus test will be facing Man City. If Arteta can dominate proceedings against a Pep side, then you will know just how 'dominant' this style of play truly is. I think they can outrun City...

It's day 307 of #Russia's full invasion of #Ukraine.

Welcome along to Tuesday's daily news thread.

Monday was quite a day. Find out anything you missed right here:

In complete contrast to yesterday there is very little news to report.

This in itself has to be good news with not a single report of missiles or shelling so far and it's almost 6am in #Ukraine.
The de-Nazification/russification of #Ukraine continues.

In liberated #Izium 19 streets have changed names to shed Russian links. The town in #Kharkiv now honours Steve Jobs and Golda Meir instead. Meir, the 4th Prime Minister of Israel was born in #Kyiv.

🗣️| Gary Neville: “They [Arsenal] haven’t proven it yet. It’s like a boxer who hasn’t won a title. You have to question them. But what you can’t question is that was a really, really good performance [against Chelsea on Sunday].” #afc
🗣️| Gary Neville: “I want to see it over 38 games and we’ve seen recently Arsenal found it tough in the last part of the season. That is not being overly negative. It’s just saying let’s see what happens in 20 games time. I do think they’re bang on to finish in the top-four” #afc
