    The best way to describe today’s game is to say that Arsenal was Impotent. That being said we still got robbed a lacazette goal. I don’t know why it wasn’t reviewed.

    Like I was mentioning before the game, Lacazette, Willian, Pepe, Mustafi etc all need 2 to 3 months out of PL starting eleven. It’s best to give them the Europa League games and just phase them out.

    Saka, AMN, Saliba, Reiss Nelson, ESR etc all need to be given a chance in the PL since our senior players aren’t cutting it. Youngsters might be hit and miss some weeks but at least they’ll get that PL experience week in week out that they can build on.

    I’m done with this dreadful football.

    Just worth noting we have pretty much the exact same players on the pitch in this game, in fact we have better players now but no Özil of course.

    No goalscoring midfielders in the squad kills us.

    Big Arteta fan, but no way should he have left Özil out of the squad, it's crying out for creativity. And no way should Mustafi ever play for this club again.

    Can't wrap my head around playing Partey, Xhaka and Ceballos and for the most part had shackled the three, I prefer Ceballos playing a freer role can't see him thriving on a leash his space creation and creativity will suffer.

    We've seen this many times before, team parks bus, we make a cursory stab at busting down the door then settle into lull with no urgency, season after season, no excuses from Arteta this tactic is not new.

    Incoming "He's crap he goes missing in these sorts of games" Still creates opportunities though. Makes you laugh.

    I’m confused when so many Arsenal fans, pundits and commentators fail to make a bigger deal out of this. The player himself, even.

    Auba has outscored every single player in the PL since his arrival as at the end of last season playing mostly through the middle but out wide on occasions.

    He’s basically a speedy, elite poacher. For whatever reason though Arteta’s hell bent on turning him into Dirk Kuyt. Our one reliable source of goals.

    Nobody’s saying he has to play through the middle in every single game but Arteta won’t even entertain it as a plan B or C. It’s bizarre.

    What did you expect from a rookie manager. I honestly didn’t understand why he got the job in the first place as he literally had no record for us to assess. Arsenal is a big club and you don’t give this job to a rookie manager. No matter what. Let him learn and become great elsewhere and then bring him in.

    Arsenal need results now but Mikel as a manager is literally a long term project. It’s quite confounding.

    He'll tell him to be braver for certain. Wenger got poor results towards the end admittedly but the last two and a half years have been a more painful and hopeless watch than anything Wenger served up, even the drubbings.

    Why was Lacazette playing from the left like Theirry when he can barely run or beat his man? I found that strange.

    Play the same team but with Özil behind Pepe and Auba, let the full backs create the width, like they did well today.

    Man I miss Özil. The only creative player we had and we left him out of the selection.

    This says Emery vs LCFC but it was actually Özil going against Emery's instructions. This is what led to him getting benched.

    You're talking sense, sadly in Arsenal DNA talking sense and making the correct decisions don't go well with eachother

    Bellerin - Saliba - Gabriel - Tierney
    Partey - Ceballos
    Pepe - Özil - Saka
    Would at least give us hope creatively. I get why Özil isn't involved, isnt in Mikels long term plans. But we absolutely need a midfielder like Mesut right now.
