‘Scapegoating’ Players for Wenger’s Incompetence

    Well, I definitely heard boos when Adebayor came on, and I sit just above the "hardcore" section which almost never boos, so it must have been pretty loud wherever it was taking place.

    Generally, it was a resigned atmosphere. The fans neither believe in the team nor have much affection for them. At least the latter wasn't true during the dog days under Graham. "Too fed up to get angry" is a good summary of the current mood. It would have been worse had the opponents not been arch-rivals, as fans never want to be seen as disloyal in front of visiting fans they despise.

    The stadium was literally half-empty after Malouda scored the 4th, and the worst thing is that this was actually a lucky break for Wenger, because the people who left would have booed big-time after the final whistle had they stayed.

    Also, as I've said quite often this season, the pro-Wenger chants which used to happen at every game (the main one being "give us a wave", to which Wenger obliged) are rarer and rarer. Not a single one on Sunday, even before Chelsea scored.

    This team is a reflection of Wenger, he built this team from scratch by discarding some very, very popular players (Vieira, Henry, Pires etc...) and the replacements have fallen wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy short of the expectations. Most of us are absolutely disgusted by this team and by simple association, disgusted with Wenger's attitude to stick by players who constantly do not repay his blind faith.

    There were a few people but it was very few. He didn't get a cheer though. Pretty fickle TBH. The same people will sing his name when he scores but as soon as he hits a dry spell everyone calls him a lazy ****er and decide they hate him again.

    footie fans for ya

    I remember Danny Murphy being ironically cheered when subsituted in a draw at Anfield, then scoring the winner at Old Trafford the following Wednesday

    Then the Kop sang his name at the next home game

    I noticed this too. Must have been the first time in ages that no one sang for him. If people had I don't know if I'd have joined in.

    Thats the problem with us JG people will boo poor gormless clowns like Eboue who are just players trying to do a job, but they won't have the guts to boo Wenger or chant "you don't know what you're doing" As the old saying goes: She who is silent consents. Match goers- Make a f**kin stink so bad they'll smell it up in the boardroom! :x

    The atmosphere's been positively nasty quite a few times this season - the Chelsea game wasn't the first. But there definitely was an air of resignation going around. Have to say though, don't think it was as bad as I've seen it as other times this season - at least the fans got behind the team again when there was a glimmer of hope from the Bendtner goal.

    However I thought it was better than Wednesday night, where the players just about edged the fans in the 'giving up and thinking about something else' race.

    van Persie up top creates chances for others and goes for goal fairly regularly.

    van Persie in the whole drops into midfield and/or defence and tries to get the ball up top.

    van Persie on the left wing is useless.

    So in conclusion, deploy van Persie behind the opposition goal and he'll bang in ten goals a game playing on the edge of the six yard box.

    You guys beat around the bush...what you like. Wenger's downfall is not as much tactical as it is strategical. he planned it wrong in his transfers in and out. our problem is : "We Lack Quality Players In Too Sensetive Positions" this is why he is trying the bizzare formations and lineup trying to spray perfume on ****... guess what it is still ****.

    we are suffering 5 or 6 years of failed transfer strategies, and we will not see a change in our fortune until we change our ways.
