  1. This has been an intermittent theme for a while now. This season is not an anomaly.

    Finishing is a massive problem in Wenger teams over the last few years.
     
  2. Another common theme under wenger. This exact post sums up years of Wenger teams. Beautiful intricate play followed by wastefulness and then frustration which leads to possession being turned over (possibly from a Xhaka pass misdirected at a team mate who is 2 feet away).

    Maybe we do zero finishing at practice. Must be a reason why we have strikers who are guaranteed a goal drought mid season... each.

    It’s clearly a completely presentable chance which should have been scored.

    But I won’t stand for people who add suplerflous hyperbole and revise statements in previous posts in order to make themselves look superior to others.

    Is how our lack of goals due to a malaise in the general play of the team, or to the relatively poor goalscoring form of the two players whom you'd expect to contribute the most goals: Alexis and Lacazette?

    Mark Tobias Mmhmm yes, I agree

    I think it has to do with how we create chances. Having 33 opportunities through the middle is one thing. When those chances are split from every angle of the box then you start opening up things for goals. We're a bit one dimensional at the moment and it has to do with our width, orlack thereof.

    It wasn't a different poster that said there were three or four defenders on the line. :lol:

    And it was virtually an open goal, whatever 'obfuscate' means. :rolleyes:

    It is actually a word. Although, I admit, I had to google it.

    Fair enough. For the good of the team is quite understandable.

    Glad your back on bro, after your mini lay off.

    You've been hoovering up BS like a Dyson V8 on full vortex lately. If you or @Tir Na Nog ever left, I'd have to move to Reddit and annoy posters there:lol:

    End of year getting to me. I need to relax a little. Easier said than done as an Arsenal fan, right?
    But I'm with you, bro.

    My bad bro. Should *not* have used this term with an individual who is struggling with the definition of the word “open” :lol::lol:;)

    trouble is Laca gets no useful service, whereas late in matches we pump high balls for Giroud - and in spite of his miss-rate it results in some goals.
