Labai geras interviu su mūsų transferų guru - Sven Mislintat. Rekomenduoju paskaityt visiems, ne tik Arsenal fanams. Duoda nemažai geros info apie tai kaip veikia žaidėjų skautingas ir panašūs dalykai:

Sprendimą pasikviest Mislintat likau vienu geriausių naujoje eroje. Jis suteikia vilties, kad sugebėsim konkuruot su City ir kitais piniguočiais aikštėje ateityje. Išleidžiamom sumom ir toliau atsiliksim, bet protingas skautingas žaidėjų kokybės skirtumą gali sumažint pastebimai.

Ornstein apsilankė Arsecast podcaste ir padavė nemažai įdomios info. Kažkoks gerasis žmogus reddite padarė santrauką:
The January budget was "meager", nearly nothing to work with for permanent signings. Loan signings with options to buy was the target. Any loan signings had to have option to buy, not obligation. Targeted players were told this fact.

Arsenal vaguely explored to bring back Chambers from Fulham but that would have incurred a recall fee so Arsenal shelved the idea and focused on attacking targets.

Mavropanos highly thought of within club. Wenger was annoyed he was bought in without his opinion but he came round on his ability after watching him in training.

Arsenal thought we were well off in numbers at the back but were aware of quality issues.

Focus on defensive signings in Summer.

Arsenal were looking for box-to-box midfielder and wide player for January. Went extremely hard for Perisic. Inter were angry that we wouldn't give them an obligation to buy Perisic. There weren't interested in the reported penalty fee.

Arsenal were interested in Carrasco at start of the window. Loan fee offered was nowhere near what Dalian Yifang wanted. When Arsenal went back in for him after Perisic, the loan fee didn't change.

Serious interest in Nkunku throughout the staff. Thought it could have been done. Needed PSG to get a midfielder for deal to go through. Politics in play with Tuchel and Mislantat. Wouldn't be surprised if we go back in for him in the Summer.

Emery likes experienced players and players he knows and trusts, hence Denis Suarez.

Rumored reports on the potential of us going in for Rabiot.

Emery was highly on board with Guendouzi signing. If Guendouzi didn't go through, Emery would have been interested in N'Zonzi.

Shock to everyone at club that Gazidis left. Everyone thought he would smooth over the transition process before leaving.

Mislantat wanted the technical director role in the club. No recommendation after Gazidis left to take the role.

Jason Rosenfeld was included in the panel to select the new manager.

Mislantat led Carrasco & Perisic deals but then Raul took over those deals after Mislantat was confirmed to leave.

Mislantat's plan was to step back in year 1 to assess the squad and then step in to restructure it but by then it was too late as he is now leaving.

Whoever takes the Techinical Director role has to be known and trusted by Emery or have a strong connection with Arsenal.

Monchi is Raul & Emery's first choice for the role. Ornstein heard from someone it's a done deal but not sure and will probably hear more in the coming days/weeks.

Looking to head towards an intelligent recruitment model, i.e. buy unknowns, develop them into talents and either keep or sell them for money to re-invest into the team.

Doesn't believe there was a fallout between Raul & Sven, just that their outlooks conflicted each others.

Self sustaining model is set to continue.

Arsenal set well in analytics etc.

Arsenal impressed with Ljungberg and Mertesacker. Emery's training sessions are intense.

Kroenke's leaving Raul and Vinai to run club as they are happy with how they go about things.

Ornstein not seeing a clear vision of what Kroenke wants for the club or what the plan is.

Most of Arsenal's directors were at the Superbowl on Sunday. City's directors were surprised at the low number of them at the match on Sunday.

Emery long-term appointment. Club expects 4/5 transfer windows before they get to where they want to be competitively.

Ornstein has heard that we can have around £100m in Summer but doesn't want to say that for a fact as he is not completely sure.

Some within the club didn't want to give Ozil a contract and some didn't want Ozil to be on that wage. Ozil had bargaining power due to Sanchez leaving.

Troubles with how Ozil is settling in Emery's play-style.

Ornstein not sure whether his story of Ozil being recommended to leave was from Emery, the hierarchy or both.

Ozil is training well and not a problem within the camp.

Theorizes that Ozil is not playing so he will be forced to leave in the Summer, thus saving Arsenal millions.

Michael Cox atliko pirmų 3 Artetos rungtynių taktinę analizę. Kadangi The Athletic ne visiems prieinamas, įdedu pilną straipsnį čia:
In terms of results, it’s been a mixed bag for Mikel Arteta so far – a draw against Bournemouth, a defeat to Chelsea and then a victory over Manchester United.

But in terms of performances, it’s been almost entirely positive. Arteta has been in charge for less than a fortnight, and hasn’t had many training sessions with his squad amongst almost incessant fixtures over the Christmas period, but Arsenal already have a clearly-defined identity under the Spaniard.

There are three obvious improvements from the Unai Emery days: there’s a defined system, the side’s playmakers are being fielded in their best positions and getting on the ball regularly, and the pressing is considerably more intense.

In terms of formation, Arsenal are — on paper — playing a 4-2-3-1. In reality, they’re playing a very compact 4-4-2 in the defensive phase, which is routine for sides playing in a 4-2-3-1, but doing something very different when they have the ball. Arsenal are morphing into a 2-3-5, which is unsurprisingly reminiscent of how Pep Guardiola often formats Manchester City, and also not entirely dissimilar from what Jose Mourinho is attempting to do with Tottenham.

Arteta’s approach is similar to that of Mourinho, in that it involves him pushing one full-back aggressively forward on the overlap to become a fifth forward, while the opposite full-back tucks inside. While Mourinho’s second full-back becomes an extra centre-back, Arteta is using Guardiola’s ‘half-back’ policy, pushing him infield to become an extra central midfielder.

Here’s a good example of that system, from early in the 1-1 draw at Bournemouth. Lucas Torreira (No 11) has the ball in the centre of midfield. To his left is Granit Xhaka, notionally his only partner in the 4-2-3-1. But to his right is Ainsley Maitland-Niles (No 15), having moved infield from right-back.

Paveikslėlis

Arteta’s intention here is to guard against opponents counter-attacking quickly through Arsenal’s lines if there’s a turnover of possession, and forming this narrow trio offers good protection for the defence. It also suits both Maitland-Niles, a reluctant full-back who considers himself more of a midfielder, and the left-footed Xhaka, who is comfortable towards that side of the pitch.

Maitland-Niles played that role most overtly against Bournemouth, a little more conventionally against Chelsea before playing somewhere between the two roles against United. This situation, with David Luiz playing a long pass downfield, shows the positioning of Maitland-Niles and Xhaka, again either side of Torreira.

Paveikslėlis

This 2-3 formation allows for Arsenal to use an effective front five without sacrificing defensive structure. Here’s another example from the Bournemouth game – again, Maitland-Niles and Xhaka are either side of Torreira, and the two centre-backs are in position…

Paveikslėlis

… and as the move develops and the camera pans forward, the front five becomes clear.

On the right, Reiss Nelson played as a conventional winger. Özil, the No 10, was given a defined inside-right role, always receiving the ball in that pocket of space. Alexandre Lacazette leads the line, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is given license to move inside and become a second striker in an inside-left position, thanks to the aggressive overlapping of Bukayo Saka. A little like Maitland-Niles, Saka’s best position is somewhat undefined — he’s somewhere between a full-back and a winger, and therefore this overlapping role suits him well.

Paveikslėlis

And Arsenal’s main route of attack against Bournemouth was getting Saka over on the far side. His end product was disappointing, but there were various situations that justified the use of the system, like when Özil drifted inside from the right and found him on the overlap…

Paveikslėlis

… and also when Xhaka played good forward passes for Saka to run onto, with four targets in the middle…

Paveikslėlis
Paveikslėlis

Here’s an alternative perspective, from the second half – again, an obvious midfield three and a front five, with Saka and Nelson hugging the touchlines and stretching the play across the entire width of the pitch.

Paveikslėlis

This formation contributed to the clearest chance Arsenal created against Bournemouth, when Bournemouth’s defence became so stretched to cope with Arsenal’s attack that there was an alarming space between the centre-backs, allowing David Luiz to thread a pass through to Lacazette, whose shot was stopped by a last-ditch block.

Paveikslėlis

And the front five was obvious for Arsenal’s equaliser – Özil’s touch back for Nelson prompted a shot which was deflected into the path of Aubameyang to turn home at the far post.

Paveikslėlis

The front five was also obvious for Arsenal’s opener against Manchester United on New Year’s Day. This time it was Sead Kolasinac playing as the overlapping left-back, and Nicolas Pepe as the permanent right-winger, but the shape was identical. Here, with Kolasinac making a run inside Aubameyang and collecting a pass in behind the defence, his cut-back found its way through to Pepe at the far post.

Paveikslėlis

That system was by design rather than accident — two minutes later they were in exactly the same shape, with Pepe again wanting the ball at the far post.

Paveikslėlis

And here’s further evidence of the front five: Pepe has two options of a pass to the left, with Aubameyang free, and Kolasinac again sprinting forward down the outside.

Paveikslėlis

In terms of individuals, the performances of Özil have been particularly promising. Whereas the German was in and out of the side — and sometimes the match-day squad —under Emery, his former team-mate Arteta evidently appreciates his quality. Not only has Özil been handed an important role in the side, Arsenal have continually been able to find him between the lines. The passing of David Luiz has been useful here — few Premier League defenders are so adept at breaking the lines with forward passes. Here’s a good example from the early stages against Bournemouth.

Paveikslėlis
Paveikslėlis

But the key player in Özil’s improvement has been Torreira, handed the key role at the base of Arsenal’s midfield. He’s continually fizzed passes into Özil in that inside-right position, with this example against Bournemouth showing how Özil’s positioning has pulled the opposition left-back inside and created space for Nelson on the outside.

Paveikslėlis
Paveikslėlis

Often, the amount of space Özil has found himself in has been extraordinary…

Paveikslėlis
Paveikslėlis

Perhaps the best example of the Torreira-Özil relationship, though, came just eight minutes into the Arteta reign. Not only did Torreira have the confidence to receive the ball with his back to play in a dangerous position…

Paveikslėlis

… he also received the ball in the right manner to turn and play it into Özil on the run…

Paveikslėlis

… and, sure enough, there’s the four other components in that front five —Nelson and Saka stretching the play, Lacazette running into the gap between the centre-backs and Aubameyang moving into that inside-left position.

Paveikslėlis

This neat move against Chelsea, with Özil dummying Maitland-Niles’ pass and letting it run into the path of the onrushing Torreira, also hinted that Arsenal’s two most creative players are on the same wavelength.

Paveikslėlis

Another positive has been Arsenal’s pressing. Against Bournemouth there was great energy about their play, getting men around the ball quickly to put opponents under pressure with multiple opponents.

This situation led to an Aubameyang winning the ball in a dangerous position and having a shot…

Paveikslėlis

… this incident out wide led to Nelson (No 24) winning possession, dribbling forward and having a decent effort from the edge of the box.

Paveikslėlis

Against Chelsea the pressing had a slightly different impact. Arsenal didn’t manage to win possession in advanced positions regularly, but it did force Chelsea into aimless long balls downfield in the opening stages, an issue that was only solved once Frank Lampard made a first-half substitution and introduced Jorginho to offer more passing options in deep positions. That said, there was also a good example of counter-pressing 13 minutes from time, when Aubameyang lost the ball, he and Nelson (circled below) pressured N’Golo Kante to regain possession immediately, and Joe Willock curled a shot just wide. That miss proved crucial, as Arsenal then conceded twice in the final 10 minutes.

Paveikslėlis

Against United, meanwhile, Arsenal’s pressing seemed more deliberate, and more intelligent. Here, after 10 minutes, Nemanja Matic finds his path blocked by three Arsenal players, so decides to go backwards to Harry Maguire.

Paveikslėlis

Maguire’s first intention is to switch the ball towards the right of the defence, but before he receives possession, on the far side Aubameyang is already sprinting forward to discourage a pass towards either Aaron Wan-Bissaka or Victor Lindelof.

Maguire recognises the danger of that pass…

Paveikslėlis

… but then, pressured by Lacazette, plays the ball straight to Pepe.

Paveikslėlis

Here’s a similar situation, this time when David de Gea has the ball. Lindelof, on the far side, is gesturing for the ball but Lacazette makes an angled run to cut off the passing angle and force De Gea to the near side, where Arsenal are ready to press…

Paveikslėlis

… De Gea plays the ball to Maguire, who is again tempted to pass to Lindelof but gets spooked by Aubameyang’s pressing, and therefore launches the ball out for an Arsenal throw-in. Arsenal continually forced this type of mistake.

Arsenal continually forced this type of mistake.

Paveikslėlis

And while pressing is about more than simply hard running and closing down, the work rate of Arsenal’s attackers was exceptional against United. Here, both Lacazette and Aubameyang sense that Fred is free for a short pass in central midfield, so immediately sprint towards him…

Paveikslėlis

… and, by the time Fred takes his first touch, both forwards are upon him, tackling from behind and sending the ball to Xhaka, who starts another Arsenal attack.

Paveikslėlis

Arsenal tired in the second half — as many sides have at the end of this Christmas period — but they still worked hard to regain possession. Here, Wan-Bissaka is seemingly set to bring the ball forward up an unguarded Arsenal left flank, but Lacazette sprints after him to close down…

Paveikslėlis

… he makes the tackle…

Paveikslėlis

… and then, when the ball falls to Mason Greenwood on the near touchline, Lacazette is one of three players surrounding him, forcing the ball over the touchline for an Arsenal throw-in.

Paveikslėlis

Another theme has been the fact that two of Arsenal’s four goals so far under Arteta have come from near-post flick-ons at corners. At City, one of Arteta’s responsibilities as Guardiola’s assistant was planning set pieces, and therefore he’s likely to be methodical in his planning of dead-ball situations as a manager, too.

First Calum Chambers nodded the ball on for Aubameyang to head home the opener against Chelsea…

Paveikslėlis

… and then, after Lacazette’s near-post header forced a save from De Gea, Sokratis Papastathopoulos slammed home the rebound for Arsenal’s second goal against Manchester United.

Paveikslėlis

That also brings to mind George Graham-era Arsenal, when Steve Bould would regularly play the near post flick-on role for Tony Adams coming in from a deeper position. And, on the subject of those days, Arsenal’s highly compact shape without the ball — 4-4-2, the midfield deep and a high defensive line — is the type of organisation that Graham himself would be proud of.

Paveikslėlis

It’s still early days for Arteta, and many sides have enjoyed a “new manager bounce” before returning to their previous poor form. But while Arteta has certainly brought enthusiasm, freshness and rejuvenated the dressing room, there’s much more to these positive performances. Arsenal already appear more organised than they’ve been for several years.

Galvoju ikelsiu čia, Afrikos turtingiausias zmigus turi planų arsenala nusipirkt, kokios nuomonės?

"Aliko Dangote has admitted that he is planning to buy Arsenal Football Club.

The Nigerian billionaire - the richest man in Africa - has made no secret of his desire to take over the north London club in the past and has made several statements about launching a future takeover bid in the past.

And the 62-year-old Gunners supporter, who is at number 136 on Forbes' rich list, has been talking up a move for the club again.

Dangote owns nearly 85% of the publicly-traded Dangote Cement through a holding company. He also owns stakes in publicly-traded salt, sugar and flour manufacturing companies.

According to Forbes the Dangote Refinery has been under construction for three years and is expected to be one of the world's largest oil refineries once complete.

And it is that project that is keeping the billionaire from making a move to buy Arsenal from Stan Kroenke right now.

Speaking in 2018, Dangote said that he wanted to buy Arsenal this year.

He said back then: "We will go after Arsenal from 2020, even if somebody buys, we will still go after it."

Now, with the Dangote Refinery still in process, Dangote has altered his plans and made the big claim that he will buy the club sometime in 2021.

Speaking on the David Rubenstein Show in America, in an interview recorded in September, Dangote said: "It is a team that yes I would like to buy some day, but what I keep saying is we have $20billion worth of projects and that's what I really want to concentrate on.

I'm trying to finish building the company and then after we finish, maybe some time in 2021 we can.

"I'm not buying Arsenal right now, I'm buying Arsenal when I finish all these projects, because I'm trying to take the company to the next level."

You can see the full interview with Dangote, which was only released on YouTube this month, here -

Mano nuomone tai jei nori kažką pirkti, neužtenka pasakyt "I"m buying it". Dar reikia, kad tą daiktą kažkas parduotų.
