Robbie Savage talks tactics

Savage. Loathe him or hate him, you can always ignore him. After a weekend of talking points and tactical mishaps, he is the only man worth listening to.
1. The first problem with Robbie Savage’s article on ‘What Went Wrong with Arsenal’ is that it’s Robbie Savage talking tactics.
2. The second problem is that Robbie Savage has a limited supply of mates. This practically voids his opinions. Robbie recently claimed that Gary Lineker was his friend; we e-mailed Gary for a confirmation. He didn’t reply. Why would Gary not reply if he’s telling the truth? Simply put, Lineker wouldn’t lie, therefore making Savage a compulsive liar. If he’s lying about this, what else is he lying about? We suspect a lot, one example supporting this argument would be his recent article on ‘What Went Wrong with Arsenal’.
3. Robbie Savage has long hair, long hair impairs vision, and impaired vision means you can’t draw relevant conclusions from Football matches making all his points wrong. It’s a known fact that long hair means you’re wrong about a lot of things, especially football, take Robbie Savage for example.
4. He continues to draw comparisons with his playing days; the problem is Robbie, nobody cares making everything you say wrong and irrelevant. Take this quote for example “When I went to Old Trafford as a player, whether it was with Leicester, Birmingham or Blackburn, we always set ourselves up to try to stop United.” This is great, if you’re Robbie Savage, but if you’re not then it’s wrong.
5. Robbie Savage goes on to mention what it was like working with one of his old managers, Mark Hughes. As mentioned before, if you are not Robbie Savage, or have not worked with Mark Hughes, this is irrelevant. He uses Hughes to reference his opinion. Hughes has yet to win a game this season. Savage appears to be wrong again. This is interesting as he’s just written a whole article on ‘What Went Wrong with Arsenal’.
“If they had been fit, Kieran Gibbs and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain would also have made a difference down the left against United.” – Robbie Savage, found in Robbie Savage: ‘Talking Tactics. What Went Wrong with Arsenal’
