Arsenal Should Let Go Those Who Want Out

Star Sports Headlines

Arsenal have hammered another nail into their own coffin when they failed once again to hold on to a 3-1 lead and went on to tie 3-3 with Tottenham Hotspur. I don't want to talk about whether Arsenal have any remaining chance to win this year's English premiership. It is a depressing thing to talk about.

I want to talk about news that some Arsenal players may want to leave Arsenal. It has been reported that Samir Nasri heads a group of five French players who may want out of the Arsenal team.

As far as I am concerned, Arsene Wenger should allow those players who want to leave Arsenal to leave.  It is reported that among those Arsenal players who may want to leave are Abou Diaby, Gael Clichy, Bacary Sagna, Squillaci and Samir Nasri himself.

It is useless to retain those whose hearts may no be longer with Arsenal. To do so will be disruptive to the team as a whole, and unfair to the rest who want to remain.

We all know that Cesc Fabregas is an important Arsenal player, However, Fabregas himself had wanted out of Arsenal several times and it may be a good thing too, for Wenger to let Fabregas go should he want out this time.

Arsene Wenger should seriously look into bringing in some new players, particularly a good solid central defender and an out-an-out striker. With new owner Stan Kronke making funds available,
Wenger should not longer stinge.

Above all, Arsene Wenger should change the way Arsenal play. Arsenal should play more aggressively.

For example, Walcott should be told to run at defenders more often, instead of just running and passing or just crossing the ball to his colleagues. This is because Walcott does not often get long crosses from his colleagues to be able to take advantage of his speed.

The way Barcelona play is really not much different from Arsenal's, except that the former mix up their play with clever long balls, chips and lops and running at their opponents especially where Lionel Messi is concerned.

Walcott is certainly no Messi, but Arsene Wenger should give Walcott a chance to show what he can do. With his speed alone, he might just be able to terrorise the opponent defenders and cause enough fear or confusion.
