My beloved Cazorla <3

Posted by TopTopQuality 7 months ago · 119 replies

Over the last few seasons I've heard some wankers saying that they'd start Wilshere or Ramsey ahead of Cazorla. Them 2 are not worth Cazorla's one toe.

In this current squad Cazorla is irreplaceable.

Last season his injury cost Arsenal the title. If he gets a long-term injury this season again, Arsenal won't win the title either.

The closest to Cazorla midfielder quality-wise is Xhaka. He can make a pass from deep that can create a good chance. I suppose some combination of El Neni and Xhaka can compensate for Cazorla's absense to an extent.

But to suggest that Ramsey is anywhere near as good as Cazorla is a sign of extreme stupidity. Ramsey should be sold to Everton, where he belongs. That's his level.

He was never as good as Iniesta at any point in his career. Andres is one of the best midfielders to ever play the game.

And because of that when you're sick you'd rather believe what TopTopQuality tells you because doctors are known to make mistakes...

Not really. Just saying that just because Arsenal have doctors doesn't mean they make 100% flawless decisions - as evidenced by our awful injury record compared to every other team.

It means whatever they decide is better than what we come up with. Simple as that.

Good old Wengerism. But no, that's not how it works. Decisions at a football club are not 100% based on facts. It's also based on schedule, form and emotion. If Cazorla was played when in the risk zone, then the doctors or Wenger (or both) made a mistake.

Arsene

Children your age tend to create themselves idols. You probably lack direction in life and need a role model, it's understandable. You need someone to worship, like those teenage girls worshiping Justin Bieber.

If you met Wenger in real life you'd probably ask him to fart in a bottle, so that you could sniff it from time to time.

Ah yes, doctors are known to never make mistakes.

As opposed to non-medical professionals, they tend to make fewer mistakes. However, their track record is not very good.

The point he's trying to make, I think, is that at best we're making UNEDUCATED guesses. Unless someone is a physician and at best he's making educated guesses, because even then, he doesn't have access to medical data that Arsenal's doctors have.

Nor does he pretend that he hasn't done any mistakes. As saimpot said, all we do here is speculate but its safe to say that Arsene isn't alone making these decisions. Regarding risk zones, my guess is that there isn't a football manager out there who never played key players in risk zones.

Ah, there's a man who has never been wrong about anything. And he has never played players in risk zones. Or wait...

So why the slating of Wenger then? What is he doing differently than other managers would do in this situation?

Let's not forget that Arsenal's injury problems are, and have been, the worst in the top five leagues every season since tracking began (in terms of number of injuries sustained). It has gotten much better in the last couple of seasons, but before then we had a disgraceful record for at least 15-16 years.

You guys are better managers, footballers and medics than the guys that work for us or other pro clubs. Well done.

Brainwashed by Wenger's logic I see...because it's impossible for me to judge the skills of a professional unless I have first-hand experience of that profession.

Unless you have actual knowledge or experience of the inner workings of a medical team, or a football club. If not, then no, you cannot judge the skills. You can only judge the direct outcome of those skills (e.g. injuries, poor signings), but not the skills themselves.

It's like me judging and criticising a doctor for his medical decisions. I can only judge the outcome. But, you also know what they say... Hindsight is 20/20.

You have absolutely no experience.

And you have absolutely no experience as a pilot, but if the plane goes down I'm pretty sure you'd pass a judgement or two.

This argumentation is retarded, at best. Wenger has admitted on numerous occasions that he has made mistakes playing certain players in risk zones. Arsenal have had the worst injury record of all tracked clubs since tracking began. Our injury room is currently filled with seven players. And you guys have the balls to talk about how we can't judge because we haven't been medically trained.
