    Partey and Nketiah are only source of creativity? :lol: Nice troll post.

    Absolutely gutless performance.

    Gab was MOTM though.

    One mistake cost us points today.

    That’s all that was wrong with today’s performance.

    Artetaball is still an evolving thing. We're not seeing how Arteta really wants to play since he doesn't have the players yet. It's quite clear he's trying to shore up the defending to give us a chance, especially against teams like City. It's all pragmatic at the moment.

    Can't criticise Arteta, he's the messiah, fek off. That was borderline disgraceful.

    We did poorly in the wide areas IMO. Tierney had a mixed game - I thought he was good in the 1st half but he got done a few too many times, as did Bellerin. Also our wide men were pretty poor overall aswell and we had no real wide replacements for them.

    Firmly keeping an eye on the EL this Thursday - there's an opening IMO.

    Very easy to look at the result and say Arteta has improved us in these games (which he has) but it's with tactics most of the smaller clubs would use, not teams who can put out a £180m front 3. Far too conservative for my liking.

    100% losing rate since @OnlyOne and @Trilly got promoted.

    Makes you think.

    We are disciplined and hard to beat, but that won't be enough. I was very disappointed in our attacking, given some of the names out there. Also felt we obviously needed to gamble on Parteys drive far earlier in to the match.

    Wenger was gung-ho, but arteta today seemed risk averse at the other end of the spectrum. Still 1-0 isn't terrible, but with De Bruyne it would have been more.

    Gabriel might just be the most impressive CB in the league right now. Insane composure, almost everything he does is clever.

    Yes front 3 were so disappointed today auba Willian very invisibile pepe tried but really not good enough. When you see city Mahrez and sterling always running trying to create space.

    We don't really have a counter attack, it really hurts us in games like this.

    I feel like we're kinda at the point where Arteta's first principal achievement of 'making us competitive' isn't quite enough anymore. Pundits still praise this team just for not getting battered away from home. There's no infallible team in this league, if you attack well enough you can beat anyone on your day.

    Like it's good that the team isn't a clown car anymore, but tbh we're kinda boring and our attack isn't that great.

    Really disappointing not to get something from that game, deserved a draw imo.

    Positives are that's the best we have played against City in the league since Pep took over, plus everyone is dropping points at this stage so opportunity to bounce back quickly is there...need to beat Leicester next weekend now though!
