Mexican striker Carlos Vela got his long-awaited first Premier League start in this season as the Gunners were rocked by a more focused and fighting Blackburn Rovers side at the Ewood park last evening.
The 21 years old has started on the left-wing to support Robin van Persie up-front, but it was early clear that Carlitos is at the moment without any confidence if he is wearing the Arsenal kit. Carlos looked scared and totally destroyed in his own believe, so that nothing worked well for the young forward in this football match.
Just after 3 minutes he had a tremendous opportunity as Theo Walcott did a great cross from he right hand side, but Carlos missed just wide as he lifted his effort over his marker.
If you now wait on more scenes of Carlos in the match, there was unfortunately nothing. Just one more action as Vela was flagged offside as he drilled a left footer dangerously across the goal.
Vela was then replaced after 67 minutes by Russian international Andrey Arshavin.
It was definitely another disappointing day for Carlos, but that he is currently without any confidence is totally understandable. The young forward got bad treatment this season by the Arsenal Manager and this is the result of all. You cannot be confident, you cannot have believe in yourself when you sitting most of the time on the bench or in the stands, but you cannot blame Wenger for it as he wanted to win the Premier League, but the Manager failed as well as like he failed to develop Carlos to a member on this competitive Arsenal side.
I don’t know what problem Wenger had this season with Carlos, but obviously he had a meeting in front of the season with Raymond Domenech were both decided to let Vela stay on the bench for France.
Sorry guys a bit of irony must be allowed, but definitely i agree with all of us that Carlos was poor yesterday!!
