Sokratis opens up on Watford mistake 0

Posted on September 17, 2019 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal defender Sokratis was having a fairly decent game against Watford at the weekend, and then, in the blink of an eye, one mistake changed all of that. Sokratis allowed the Hornets to make their way back into the game and while some fans are understandably upset, the man himself was more than happy to own up to the error – as confirmed by Arsenal.com.

on the game…
I think that I cost the game for the team. It was my mistake for something simple that I don’t have to do. I think this was the problem why we lose the three points.

Drawing in the away match against Watford yesterday was a big disappointment for both the team and their fans, especially since after the first half the Gunners felt close to winning. As it so often happens, counting on the victory made the team prone to mistakes, which the opponent have managed to turn to their advantage.

After failing to appear in any of the games since the beginning of the season, Mesut Ozil finally made his season-debut at Vicarage Road. After the game ended the German midfielder decided to share his discontent via his twitter account and thank their fans for the support:

Defensive mistakes – where do they stop? 1

There’s hardly a person interested in the Premier League or football in general that hasn’t given a scathing opinion on Arsenal’s (in)ability to defend at least once in the last several seasons. Detailed attempts at analysis by a plethora of coaches, former players, journalists, pundits, and blog writers have revealed practically nothing that wasn’t painfully obvious even before it was spoken or written. Some have pointed their fingers at players, naming individual mistakes as the root of the problem, while others spoke of the system employed by manager Unai Emery as inadequate. So what is the truth?

In two-days’ time Arsenal will be meeting their next opponent, Watford, currently in 14th place in the Premier League. The match will be held at Vicarage Road and will be the team’s third away match this season. As far as the players who were on international break are concerned, they will be returning to the club during Thursday morning. Although no international players have reported any injuries, they will be assessed before the Sunday’s match.

This will be the tenth match the two clubs will play against each other since Watford returned to Premier League in the 2015/16 season. In the nine matches played so far Arsenal have won six and lost four.

Arsenal will finally be returning to Premier League action this weekend, after two weeks of international break action. While we’ve been perfectly okay with sitting back and soaking in what the national teams around the world had to offer, we’re equally (okay, more) happy to see the Gunners get back to doing what they do best: making us leap out of our seats and panic for the better part of 94 minutes.

The international break has come to a natural conclusion and teams across Europe, and the world, and preparing for the return of domestic football. There are a lot of intriguing games for us to sink our teeth into over the course of the upcoming weekend, but one that we’re obviously fascinated to see unfold will take place between Arsenal and Watford.

Wolves (A)

Assuming Wolves aren’t in the latter stages of the Europa League at this point, this game could be dangerous. The last time Arsenal went to Molineux they were thoroughly beaten by a Wolves side that, simply put, were much better than them. Will the same thing happen again? Don’t be surprised.

Leicester (H)

Leicester City are a tricky side to deal with, but even with that being the case, there shouldn’t be any kind of overwhelming worry regarding what they’re capable of – especially if Brendan Rodgers is still at the helm. That may seem and sound a little bit harsh, but they just don’t strike us as an intimidating side.

Tottenham (H)

Winning the first North London derby of the season would be a huge sign of intent from this Arsenal team, to the point where we’re pretty much convinced that it would set them on their way towards the top four.

Watford (A)

They aren’t intimidating, to be perfectly honest, and we don’t consider last season to be an indication of what they’re going to do in the next. They fall short of the top six, and even seven when you include Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Aston Villa (H)

Boxing Day – Bournemouth (A)

Heading down to the south coast on Boxing Day isn’t going to be ideal, but we aren’t exactly expecting Bournemouth to do much next season. They’ll probably be down in the relegation mix, whereas Arsenal, by this point, should be right in the hunt for a place in the top four. This should be another win, no questions asked.

Would Vincent Kompany be a good addition for Arsenal? 1

Posted on May 19, 2019 by David Nugent

On Saturday afternoon, Manchester City mauled Watford 6-0 in the FA Cup at Wembley, to claim an unprecedented domestic treble in English football.

The game proved significant for more than just the Citizens achievement, though, as it also saw the final appearance in a City shirt captain Vincent Kompany. The 33-year-old is out of contract this summer with the Citizens.

Kompany would provide excellent leadership skills

Vincent Kompany is no doubt a player in the twilight of his playing career. However, towards the end of the season, he had a massive influence on his team’s displays, as the Citizens won their last 14 league matches to claim the Premier League title.
