The media for years have been saying we have no backbone. soft as ****.. lack cajones etc.We win a couple of games coming after being down 2 nil down in recent weeks and we are vulnerable and shaky.
surely that is a sign of champions that you can be absolute rubbish but still pull out wins. All teams that win tites have theses type of games.
the contradictions from the pundits and clear biased hatred is non stop.
This guy can only speak in cliches. There’s no nuance or intelligence when it comes to opinion on Arsenal. It’s an issue in English analysis because every pundit is guilty of this. “Arsenal have no leaders” because Alan Hansen said so on MOTD 10 years and pundits have run with it ever since. “Arsenal need experience”, “Arsenal don’t have the depth”, “Arsenal always crash in February” etc etc
Gnev is one of the worst pundits out there
Yeah crock of ****, I can understand (but not agree) with his position of arsenal falling short in the Premier League, but to say we still have a soft underbelly and have no leaders has already been proven wrong this season even if we miss out on the PL. Pure unsubstianted rhetoric; the type of crap you expect from that generation of utd players. They are all the same.Which two are right then Gary?
Still clinging to “no leaders”
At least Carragher (I know he's a **** for spitting at a 14 year old) can change his mind or hold his hands up when he's wrong, but G.Nev is so welded to his opinion he'll double on it even if he's wrong.Gave up on all Sky/BT punditry after the whole 'Ole' saga where his side could go out and get spanked but they would still stick up for there pal.
Find myself listening to TalkSport for analysis more than anything these days, its not perfect and has some complete weirdos like Adrian Durham still on there but its somewhat balanced and atleast a lot of the opinions are actually challenged by the other hosts etc.
G.Nev and Carragher are the worst though in my opinion, they are cheerleaders.
No idea how anyone can like Carragher, man is just disgusting.

He knows **** all about football and most of his 'analysis' are narrative and agenda driven.
I know it's like an epidemic with ex united players. Most of them know nothing about football. But even guys like Keane who always talk crap about Arsenal being without "leaders" have started changing their tone in recent months.
But Neville will stick to his beliefs even if we win the league. It's what it is. Just gotta ignore hm.
Cant disagree with that.
I'll tell you a strange pundit right now; Martin Keown, hes constantly on TalkSport and I swear to god I'm embarrassed for the man.
Not even for his footballing opinions either, yes they are bad but Keown seriously gets disrespected to his face on a regular basis and just takes it.
Simon Jordan and Jim White bully him verbally and it can sometimes be a hard listen.
The other day a caller in took him apart as well.
