Arsenal lost 0-1 at Nottingham Forest, ending their penultimate match of the season. Although this game is basically irrelevant to the overall situation, after losing, they still put their opponents on the championship throne with great respect, and Blue Moon achieved the team’s three consecutive championships, which is really awesome.
This also explains why gun fans are so angry. They can lose the game, but they can’t lose morale, especially for the youth army.
In this game, Arsenal’s advantage can be described as overwhelming. No matter in shooting, possession rate or passing success rate, the gunmen are almost performing half-court offensive and defensive drills. They have almost twice as many shots as their opponents, and the possession rate is exaggerated to 80% to 20%. In terms of touching the ball, it is 550 times more than the opponent, which is not like a team competition at the same level.
However, it is such disparity data that the final result is that the gunman lost 0-1. This can’t help but make people sigh, what happened to Arteta’s team? Even if you don’t watch the whole game and skip the highlights, you will see how accurate Nottingham Forest is in grasping efficiency. This is the main factor that they have pinned down the Arteta team.
Nottingham Forest played its own home in this game, and made it clear from the very beginning that it would fight against Arsenal. Therefore, they retreated quite deeply, and their offensive means were also very simple, that is, they made a long pass from the backcourt, and when center Avonii got a point, Danilo, Morgan White, hollier and others who were inserted later fought for two points to create problems for Arsenal.
Obviously, this strategy is extremely effective. While attacking crazily, Arsenal overreached but failed to strengthen their defense, especially there is a big loophole between the midfield line and the defense. The four defenders are almost unprotected, and the midfielders are thinking about how to go up. Push forward the desired strategy layer by layer, but lose sight of one thing and lose sight of another. Rumsdale has no power to fight back when facing the opponent’s shot.
Only 300 passes and forward passes only account for 30% of the actual passes, but Nottingham Forest has created two excellent key opportunities. This makes Arsenal’s data of nearly 900 passes but 0 chances creation very embarrassing.
What’s on Arsenal Middle Road?
In addition to the relatively low offensive efficiency, Arsenal’s midfield organizational efficiency, which was proud of during the season, especially when leading, was also very disappointing in this game. They were actually robbed by Nottingham Forest for 19 times, and the success rate of stealing was as high as 80%(24 experiments), which shows how poor their field play is and how low their state is.
No matter Zaka’s insertion from the left, or jorginho’s command and dispatch, or Odegard’s chances after the cooperation between Zaka and the right are seriously unbalanced, almost all of them are mistakes. And Jesus’s mistakes as many as seven times are also very incredible. I don’t know what the gunman is thinking, is it enough to get the runner-up
Look at Odegard’s mistakes, it is really helpless.
In the previous comments, the author mentioned that for Arsenal, this season ended in failure even in the final 38th round, and the comprehensive evaluation of such achievements was very successful. After all, for the youth team, it is a great honor to be able to fight with Manchester City for a season and push the opponent to a desperate situation before winning the championship. However, what they really need to pay attention to is the accumulation of the team’s morale. They should turn the experience saved this season into the motivation for next season and continue to move forward on the basis of purchasing suitable new aid.
However, combined with the performance of the gunmen in recent rounds, they seem to have completely lost their morale. Serious self-distrust will not only lead to poor performance in the next game this season, but also spread to next season, which is not what the team wants to see. In the last six rounds, Arsenal have only scored two wins, one draw and three losses. If they lose to Wolves at home at the end of the season, it is not surprising that gun fans will scold them.
