    I don't understand, Brendan doesn't know that Fofana needs at least a year of transition before playing ? What a fool.

    Arteta in over his head. Rodgers knew exactly what he was gonna do and we played right into it.

    Why the hell is Bellerina smiling with Vardy after the match?

    This loss is on Arteta. Not because we played badly but because the team lacks intensity and drive. I see players playing with a hand brake on. Afraid to try things because they want to play within the system the coach instructs them to. We move the ball too slowly and always give the opposition time to settle into a defensive shape. If Arteta wasn’t such an Knob about possession and keeping the ball we could have broken down Leicester already.

    That being said we had no creativity in midfield at all today. None. Ceballos was disappointing and we had nothing going on the right. Don’t know what he was thinking by starting Saka and Auba as that was a mess. Pepe did nothing when he came on either.

    We have not lost to Leicester at home since 1973. Well done Mikel. I’m annoyed because I knew they would play on the counter and we didn’t do enough to win the game or even get a draw.

    Getting beat at home by a Vardy winner is a real kick in the teeth, it's hard to take. And tbf we deserve every bit of it. Had 75 mins and most of the ball to do something and we did nothing. 2nd half especially was awful.

    We're very bad at attacking. This is a fact and a problem.

    Same age, and Saliba was seen as the bigger prospect. But somehow he is not given a chance.

    Arteta rather play our starters against farmers in the Europa League.

    Wondering if Auba is healthy. If he isn’t then shouldn’t he be coming off the bench to provide a spark?

    The front 3 are the the problem nobody else. Aubameyang has been poor for weeks now you could put it down to burn out no rest over the summers short break and Lacazette is just bang average. No creativity in the finale 3rd

    Why in god's name can we not play Özil, he's miles better then our midfielders - (Minus thomas), he's our creative player, the only one we have **** me.

    Arteta is just salty cause he was never as good as him.

    In the first half Luiz was consistently switching to Tierney in space on the left and we were very dangerous from there. That stopped after Luiz went off and we did nothing to make up for it.

    This is what happens when your center forward doesn't convert easy chances, was always going to happen.

    Wow. Arteta really got shown to be a water boy by Rodgers today.

    He didn’t have Vardy so he held us at an arms length all game until he can come on and nick a goal. Embarrassing considering this was all at home.

    Im furious, poor game.

    Do you really think Saliba makes a difference to our attack?

    we wont get top 10 if we continue this flaky way of playing . Passes are slow. Touches are too many. Players take too much time to think. So many are playing in not their best positions. Strikers cant hold up the ball or head it. Everyone is playing to rigidly defined tactics and roles, just hoping to spring Auba free... but thats not going to work everytime.

    Dunno what we can do differently with these group of players and a young David Moyes in charge. Need to get some creativity and ideas into our play.

    Trying to understand how we were so awful going forward and still had massive holes in defence.
