Tomáš Rosický MUST Start Every Game For The Rest Of The Season

It doesn't take much to baffle me. I'm easily baffled. One thing that does baffle me immensely though is that Tomas Rosicky has hardly been used this season when fit and available.

I don't know why he has hardly played. Maybe he and Sebastien Squillaci had a sleep-over in Arsene Wenger's jacket and left a whoopsie in there. But seriously, and I mean seriously, surely Rosicky hasn't fallen that far down the pecking-order?

Robin van Pissflaps, the twat, obviously takes the accolade for being the most influential player last season. But Rosicky was arguably our second most influential player in the run-in so I can't understand why he has hardly featured this year. 

Of course, Tomas began this campaign injured and was out for a while. But he has been overlooked more than I am when standing outside Kelly Brook's gaff stark naked wearing  nothing but a smile.    

Maybe people won't agree with me (different opinions and all that) but I think Arsenal are a completely different side with him playing and I would look to play him in EVERY game he is available from now until the end of the season.

Jack Wilshere has tried his best to drive the team on in recent games and at the end of 90 minutes he looks more knackered than I am after a 4 minute power walk. Rosicky, for me, is the only player who could match that enthusiasm Jack shows.

Rosicky injects a bit of pace and directness to our play, something, lets be honest, we lack at the moment for long periods of a game. I would go as far as saying I've seen sloths less lethargic than us in London zoo at the moment.

I've said before our team has so much talent. And I still stand by that. But you can have all the talent in the world and it won't work if you lack character. I may be wrong but I think that is our biggest problem and something Rosicky doesn't lack is bollocks. And talent. And bollocks....

We need all the fighters we have at the moment to play. You could say a team line-up of only Wilshere and Rosicky might have a slight disadvantage but I bet those two would still make up the rest of the teams nuts. And some.

Leaders are crucial to us at the minute. Who do we really have as leaders in this squad? Wilshere, Rosicky, Arteta and maybe Squillaci (who is also being left out at the minute for whoopsieing into Wenger's jacket) spring to mind so they need to play.

I have left out Thomas Vermaelen purposely because I don't think he is a leader anymore. I love him like a brother about to buy me a years supply of Coors Light but I think the captaincy has hindered him and it hurts for me to write that.

Shit has begun to get real. Arsenal, and Wenger, need to buck up their ideas because we are in a real battle here to finish in the top four. I am confident we can get there but players like Rosicky are needed to achieve that.

Actualy he is good but i dont rily know why that old fool is benching him

Patrick said...

Yes i agree with you there, Rosicky changes games, the best creative midfielder in Arsena. Sad he gets injured a lot. It also baffles me why Wenger picks Ramsey before Rosicky, Diaby and Oxlade. Also i like the humour in your articles, please keep it up.

Anonymous said...

Not sure why he is not starting him... quit possible that he wants to "keep him in cotton wool" (aka Diaby) so he does not break down too soon again....

TR7 is my favorite Arsenal player so it's not hard agreeing with you, did help that I laughed through the article tho'. Nice one mate

I wonder oo he even has to sub him against blackburn when he was d only one inspirin d team

Anonymous said...

Tom was one of the few players that did okay against Blackburn....whilst Santi looks jaded....but then it's AW ...German teams are renown for being physically strong, So he leaves out his CF and plays Walcott up front....didn't win a header all game...got me?

Anonymous said...

well it bugs me alot y he aint playing......while sometimes he is only guy who seems to care about winning or losing we need him in every game

Anonymous said...

This is a wind-up, right? Tomas Rosicky is NO impact player in any way or form. He lacks goals, passes sideways and turns his back before penalties are taken. Give me a break - he, Diaby, Arshavin, Bendtner, Chamakh, Denilson, Santos, Squillaci and Djouru (that's almost a football team) can ALL fuck off with their half-hearted displays. That's if any otrher team will pay for them......what a joke! AW has bought some crap over recent years.

Danish Gooner said...

Like Arshavin and Oxlade he brings nothing to the game,always injured and basically to anon in almost every game,we need players that can drive us from defense into attack.If anyone watched Milan defend tonight you can see how much tactical work and immense pressure is required in a Cl to be successful it is something Wenger have neglected teaching for yearsand we look foolsih when trying to defend.

Anonymous said...

Nail on the head, hes quality and doesn't slow play down like ramsey and he rarely loses the ball. We would be doin better if he was able to play more this season

Danish Gooner said...

Wenger cant gets the simple things right and it is turning into a trend not a one off.

Very intelligent piece with a spice of humour.I am of thesame opinion to a fault.
Arsene wenger has lost touch:Go home Wenger u drunk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Arsene has blinkered eyes when it comes to defence. Surely he shd by now know the epl is known for its physicality and shd go for players who are at least 185cm tall and a minimum of 75 kg.
He continues to be associated with French players born in Africa who will go missing in the ANC. Surely it' s better not to get these type of guys though they maybe cheaper.
Time is of the essence and he must get it right asap otherwise he will have to pay the price for repeatede failure which is not tolerated at big clubs,if you consider Arsenal to be one of them.

I agreed with what you said about THOMAS ROSICKY, he ROSICKY remains the best Arsenal creative midfilder, his also a senior man in the team, he deserve the. Hand band as the team captain, is also a good leader who can lead the team after CECS FABREGAS and ROBIN VAN PASIE with SAMIR NASRI and ALEX SONG departure from the team, moreover ARSENE WENGER is not a good observer, if it is, he should have know from the team preseason tour that the current team leader THOMAS VERMAELINE don't have the energy and luck to lead and win most of games this season, let us look at the past captaincy we ever have at ARSENAL then, look at the like's of TONI ADAMS, PATRICK VIERA, JENS LEMAN, WILLIEMS GALAS, CECS FABREGAS and ROBIN VAN PERSIE, we all see there influential in the games, but just look at our current captain now, since he have took over the captaincy his game as drop to the call, that means he don't have the orientation to lead the team to our expectations. So ARSENE need to come back to his sense and buy us the righty player we need in this team, I mean expensive players and not the cheap ones in the football industry like the likes of GERVINHO,SANTOS, PARKSHU YONG, SQUILLACI, CHAMACK, JOUROO and RAMSEY. They are useless in the team and why can't ARSENE WENGER sale the useless idiots out and sum good and solid players who are ready for challenges. And finally ARSENAL defense reamins the useless defense in English football now. Just look at AC MILLAN match yesterday against BACELONA the best team in the world presently, just look at how AC MILLAN defends well against BARCA, there defence is very very strong than my expectations, just look at how the team cage LIONEL MESSI in that match, AC MILLAN show great work, great spirits, great possession in there game, that is what ARSENAL don't have in there team, ARSENAL don't have fightig spirit at all. I rest my case for now

Rosicky is pure class, probably my fab Arsenal player. He's great when he plays for Arsenal...who knows why Wenger is not playing him

Rumour in SOUTH AFRICA is that Arsenal have signed Julias Malema on a free. Wenger noted for spotting talent,

who told u that vermaelens game dropped after the captain band was given to him. if u have carefully observed u would discover that his game dropped towards the ending of last 2 seasons and he refused to pick up form. 4 me I feel he is the worst captain eva. the koscieny and per is beta dan either one of these & verma. lets face it gibbs is injured wat happens to carl, meade or yennaris dis is just where I hav problems with wenga. He wud rather use squilachi dan miquel or gervinho than rosicky/nabry and even ramsey dan eisfield.

I agree with the article about rosicky he is a class player and does make a difference in arsenals game. Don't get me wrong I can see why Wenger doesn't play him to often it's because of that horrible injury he suffered a few years ago. Which could of bin a career ending one. But Wenger needs to learn that he needs to take the risk and put out a winning team with rosicky in than a moderate team with the likes of ramsey and tommy v. Personally in my opinion my team would be GK mannone LB monreal CB laurent koncelny CB Per Mertersaker RB sagna CDM Arteta CM Wilshire CM Rosicky LW Arshavin RW Walcott ST Podolski ( my opinion ) but above all else Wenger has to stay at the club and the board need to be sorted out. Sorry if you got bored reading this just thought I would let my voice count lol

Im sick when i see AW selecting ramsey over rosciscky. Honestly, im beginning to worry that AW and Kronke or whteva he calls himself are in conspiracy.

Anonymous said...

to much knee-jerking here, but for me its simple.

rosickys fitness is not there and there are younger players ahead of him. from what i saw, his big energy lasted about 10 minutes (played that fucking peach through to theo though, he really is all class)

i don't he has enough in the tank (without matches) to be there for 60 minutes. not even 45. same with diaby but the size he is and his age must be why wenger will persist with him

Anonymous said...

to myself above, of course diaby's talent is a huge reason as well

pity we wont see him become a beast unless he gets a full year under his belt

Anonymous said...

I can't stop wondering why Rosicky sits on the bench while Ramsey starts. Let Wenger pay the price for his shortcomings on the field of play by losing matches, if He won't do the simple and game-winning things

Anonymous said...

90% of player salaries should be linked to an arsenal win , maybe that will bring around a chnage

Anonymous said...

Rosicky is the best player in midfield that Arsenal have got. Wonder why Wenger is not playing him in place of Ramsey. His pace and vision and passing is better than Santi. He must play if Arsenal are to finish in the top four

We need people with the Arsenal IT and Rosicky is that person.

How many players got missing during d last ANC? Gervinho has always been a crap no one missed him while on national duty..

Anonymous said...

I agree with every single word you said/ wrote.

Sebastian said...

I 100% agree and I've been saying so for over a year! Rosicky cares! He did more in 15 minutes against Bayern than Ramsey did all game. Don't get me wrong, Ramsey covers every blade of grass, but he offers nothing on the bal... Rosicky can pass, go past players, create chances and chips in with the odd goal.

Another thing I think most people have missed is just how out of his depth Arteta looked against Bayern. He's a leader Arteta, but talent wise I don't think he's quite at the Champions League level.

Anonymous said...

I think it is because it is who you take off for him. His role invade Santi's or Wilshere's. But I generally agree with you that he should be played more. The problem with Thomas is that sometimes he just drifts out of games completely. That said it doesn't seem like much of a reason to exclude him completely.

wrighty your writing style makes me sick, forgot why i hadn't visited this site for a long while

Agree. Rosciky's first touch on Tuesday put Walcott away who crossed for Giraud to nearly score. It was the first and only 'early ball' of the night from us and our best attempt (bar the goal). Santi Cazorla does tend to go missing in some games (like Tuesday) and TR can sometimes do a better job. Use him more.

Anonymous said...

Wenger need to be investigated. I think there is sumtin btw him nd ramsey. If remsey is in wigan, he wil be in d first 11. TR started playing last season bcos dat stupid ramsey got injured nd he change d team wen he came in. Wenger is just a sturborn idiot. If he dosent like TR he shul allow him to go.

Anonymous said...

We are not good enough its very simple our players are not very good....we have a superstar in Wilshere but the rest just are not good enough.....Look at Walcott ALL arsenal fans were questioning in the past and we only rate him now because he is better than the rest of the crap at this club.

Giroud misses huge chances every game, and his sole job is to convert chances.

Podolski goes missing for 89 minutes every game, it would be ok if he was a striker but he is a wide midfielder with the role of creating chances....I said he was annonymus during the euros and that just seems to be his natural game.

Cazorla is great but again goes missing and just seems to be used wrong by Wenger.

Arteta isnt physical enough, Verm, Koz and Merts all cant defend.....Sagna has declined massively as a footballer....Szcesny makes huge errors constantly.


Let me ask you one question would any of our players get in a prem XI this is my team and I cant fit any in.
Cech, Ivanovic, Kompany, Vidic, Cole, Fellaini, Toure, Mata, Bale, Suarez, RVP

Rosicky is as good as hleb if not better and well experienced but the foolish old napoleon keeps leaving him on the bench for failures like gervinho, diaby and ramsey...its such a shame

Andreas said...

I agree. Rosicky was instrumental in our improved form last year. What saddens me is that Arsenal fans mention Ramsey a little too often. In the middle of the park (not on the wing) he has been excellent this year when played in his true position. In fact arsenal fans are depressing me at the moment. Our crap home form is down to the appalling attitude we have as fans. We transmit misery to the team. We destroy confidence and harass our own players. If someone is standing over your shoulder moaning and groaning all day you would be apathetic. We are totally shit fans. I have come to this conclusion and will not renew my season ticket not because the team is weak. Not because Wenger frustrates me and not because we are now a business rather than a club. I will not renew because "victory brought harmony" does not exist at Arsenal football club. As fans we are a disgrace. Moan all you like in blogs but at the ground bloody support. Shame on us all. We can blame everyone at the club but I suggest we look in the bloody mirror.

Half of the Arsenal fans on here who know sing the praises of Rosicky were probably slagging him two years ago.

can explain why 1. The team cannot defend corners 2. Why mostly our corners fail to beat the first defender 3.Why we have been caught and conceded on the counter attack in big cup games for around six seasons 4.Why Wenger invariably makes bad team selections and formations in key games 5.Why subs only ever come on after 70 minutes irrespective of the state of the match 6. Why we are complacent against “lesser” teams like Birmingham, Bradford and Blackburn 7. Why we have players playing in the wrong positions 8. Why Wenger persisted with Almunia, Fabianski and Diaby 9. Why he bought Santos and Park and 10.Why if no money was available he suddenly found it to buy Monreal and Mertesacker, Santos etc immediately after the 8-2 thrashing at OT. Just a few to be going on with- there’s load of others, but no matter. Any “net spend/ regime- Stan’s the culprit/show me the proof” answers will confirm your collective insanity once and for all and you will all then be welcomed as life presidents of the “Untold Arsenal” site.

i think rosicky has so much to give, but how does a player ever get back into that form he had, on the bench. I mean seriously, what is going on here. I see pieces of his true talent in the games he has played, then ramsey plays. Why oh why, in Gods name is ramsey playing, he is not even in the same talent range as rosicky, maybe at rosicky's worst. Anyways, i am not here to bash players but seriously, play him please, sometimes i just watch the games to see him play. He brings, alot of pace to the game, when he is on the bench i get bored with arsenal!
