Video highlights and player ratings: Arsenal Vs Haladas

By 1970’s Gooner

Mannone: Did not have many things of note to do. Fluffed his clearance after a bad back pass from Ramsey when he should have kicked the ball out of his area with his left rather than the right foot. But he came out forcefully to clear a through ball. 6

Szczesny: One bad clearance when he should have stayed in his area but two very good saves, one from a free kick and the other from close range. 7

Eboue: one of the worst players in the first half. Hardly played a ball to an Arsenal player. If we can really get 8m for him then grab it and run I say. 4

Sagna: Quiet game but without mistakes. 6

Traore: Fantastic going forward, lousy in defending. Reminds me of Clichy and Ashley Cole in their earlier days where they were excellent going forward but their defensive positioning was lousy. They all had to use their pace to salvage the situation.

Cole and Clichy have turned out excellent defenders and so will Traore but how will Wenger satisfy all three current Arsenal left backs? 7

Silvestre: I am worried about his pace. This did not show today due to the opposition. 6

Toure: Still needs games to get into shape. Some clearances were shaky. 6

Djourou: Has to watch his positioning. 6

Gallas: Solid with a few very good tackles. The decision against him for the penalty was way too harsh. 7

Vermaelen: I liked his positional sense and the cultured left foot he has. He defended and also distributed well. 7

Denilson: Started every friendly game so far. I hope it is not a sign of things to come..Was, along with Ramsey, overran during the first 15 minutes when the opponents dominated. Perked up later. 6

Ramsey: One of his worst games so far. Hardly able to keep the ball or pass it to a team mate. 5

Song: Solid and getting better with his distribution. 7

Senderos: Again started in defensive midfield. Did well but I fear against Premier League opposition he will be giving too many fouls away as his lack of pace will be letting him down. This is not his position of course. 6

Wilshere: Lost on the left wing in the first half but when moved into the play makers position came into the for. This is his natural position and it is up to Wenger to decide whether to trust him there so early on in his career (like Fabregas) or bide his time. He missed two chances to score by trying to be too clever. 5

Bendtner: Increasingly looks the part. Scored two well taken goals and generally his overall play was very professional. This may be a very significant season for him and for Arsenal. I am expecting that he will rise up to fill Adebayor’s gap as I think that Wenger will not buy… 9

Eduardo: Scored two well taken goals. He is a clinical finisher and if he stays fit then he will score goals for us this season. 8

Arshavin: Was not up to his usual high standard today. Couldn’t hold the ball well nor pass it accurately. 5

Van Persie: had an average game but scored a superb penalty. 6


Man of the Match: Nicklas Bendtner

Bit harsh on Denilson. He was worth at least a 7.

90% biased crap based on who your favourites are. Arshavin was way worse than Eboue if you are going to score players on the basis of a pre-season friendly. Vermaelen/Gallas did not perform as effectively as Toure/Djourou either.

why wuld you do player rating on a preaseason freindly.....the idea is for the players to get fit, you're not supposed to judge their performences

yeh eboue had a poor start to last season but came back really strong. Only now hes gone and let us down again with a poor performance in a FRIENDLY!
yes i completely agree any money for that guy would be a result...
give me a break

that is somewhat unfair., first Wilshere wasnt tryin to be too clever he was improvising, n yeah Eboue a 4 n yet Arshavin didnt do anything of note., this was poor ratings

The bias against Denilson and the favouritism towards Song is getting ridiculous now. Denilson will be in the 1st 11 next season, he will continue to perform at a VERY high level and he will do a great job for the club.

get over it.

I have to agree with most of the comments here, you can't rate the players based on a friendly match, they're just blowing the cobwebs off & taking it easy, no sense in risking injury by playing like it's the CL final. The goals were taken well & the passing was overall nice & sharp, the team look to be slowly getting into gear for the start of the season & I am actually encouraged & comforted by what I saw.

i think senderos done a good job yesterday. look how many tackles he won, and cleanly too. i'm not going to speculate, but wenger usually sold players he don't want before pre season started. i have a feeling senderos could stay for at least this season. from 2 games he played in defensive midfielder, he quite effective. his tackle and positioning certainly better than song and denilson. senderos lack of pace means he would do gilberto "the invisible wall" job instead of song or flamini "box to box" action. if wenger deploy him in that position for this weekend emirates cup, that might be a sign of things to come.

Denilson get's a what? you need to stop he was atleast a 7. Arshavin was worst then Eboue but whatever

Im not sure why everyone is so interested in giving out ratings for the players in a pre-season game! The game is really just an extension to the training that has been taking place, and therefore is just to see where the players are in terms of fitness and sharpness.

When people place too much emphasis on player performance and 'rate' them at this very early stage, it just serves as an excuse to criticise players and get on their backs which is something that needs to be stopped this season by some of the fans. We really need to get behind the players this season and do our bit aswell because i don't know how we can expect our team to finish 1st in the league or win a trophy when if there was a table for the support of the fans throughout the match at the emirates, im sure we'd be facing the prospect of relegation!!

This is a crucial year for the arsenal and although we might need a extra player (esp. if toure goes) if one doesn't arrive lets not moan about the lack of signings (signings dont always equal success just look at spurs!!), lets get behind the team and turn the emirates from being like a library to being more of a fortress!!

Come On You Reds!!
