Discussion in 'Arsenal Talk' started by say yes, Sep 1, 2020.
Micha Richards really doesn't have a clue what he's on about, shocking pundit imo.
I like Richards but he has had a mare there...he literally could have picked any of our other defenders and been right, but he picks our one quality one ffs
Possibly my favorite player on the team.
I'd criticise Bellerin, then Leno, then Inaki Cana for the goal before even considering Gabriel. But that's just me.
I mean this is the Gabriel thread...
He was too far away from sterling to make the block. Shouldn't have let city outnumber us in the box, and the goal wasn't the only time it happened either.
Micah Richards is a giggling fool wtf does he know, needs to stick to being comic relief and leave the football discussions.
Here’s the issue, English pundits don’t watch European football. Richards is asking if Gabriel is the “right standard”, what he’s really saying is “why didn’t Arsenal sign a big name we know for 70M”. He then could’ve sucked us off for showing great ambition and signing this great top player.
Richards can’t break down Gabriel or tell us any weaknesses or issues because he’s only watch Gabriel maybe one or twice in full 90 minutes.
Both Micah Richards and Sol were poor pundits but for different reasons. Micah spouted nonsense, seems to be winging it half the time and Sol talks sense but struggled to articulate his points.
Out of all the new sky sports pundits I'm really enjoying evra.
I like Richards though, he seems a good lad but he’s used for comic relief on Sky like @BigPoppaPump said.
Fans watch more football than pundits. There are people on here who will talk about a midfielder at Schalke or RB at Nice or some guy at Atalanta etc. Guys like Scholes, Richards etc have never heard of them or seen them.
He’s a moron. The bloke can barely string 3 sentences together ffs.
Although that’s still probably two more than I can manage tbf.
It called smart scouting Kosh wasn't even PL midtable standard when we sign him after one year he became our key defender and teams like Bayern PSG wanted him.
A lot of these pundits just feed off what their colleagues say than actually researching or watching players for themselves. Arsenal are known to have below average CBs (The uncoachables as Gary Neville put it), so that means if Arsenal concede a goal, the blame automatically goes to them. If you actually watch the goal City scored, there are about 4 players you can blame before even looking at Gabriel or even Luiz. Cellabos gets sucked in by the pass made by Mahrez, Xhaka is too slow to get back, Bellerin gets beaten too easily by Foden and Leno parries the goal back to Sterling. 4 errors by 4 different players but the narrative shifts the blame on our centre backs.
Ease off a little bit guys...hes a gooner.
That, and he’s rubbish
It was a pity that Jose got another job in football, he was on a different planet than the other pundits. Someone who actually knows football on a tactical level, compared with people like Souness, who must be the most dour man in football.
Hopefully he'll get sacked at Sp**s, and back in the studio.
Can't trust a grown man that giggles that much tbh.
I was impressed at how well he knew the profiles of our new signings last summer.
Completely nailed it too. He’s not my type of manager but yeah as a pundit he had excellent insight, he should be managing though.
