So the meltdown begins. Arteta needs to call Wenger. This was so predictable. We fail to score and they have Vardy to bring on whist we have nothing on our bench and the starting 11 struggle every game. I'm starting to distrust the process.

Sick of him bringing on Gash from the bench.

Nketiah is sunday league quality.

He can walk today and I wouldn't bat an eye, he's ****ing aggravated me these last 5 games

Someone needs to tell Arteta you cannot setup with a defensive formation and also play possession football. A defensive formation is designed to make it difficult for teams to break you down but if you starve them off the ball whilst setting up defensively you make it extremely difficult to be efficient going forward.

You can't do both. Pick one. Tonight we should have said to Leicester come on break us down knowing we have Aubameyang and Tierney on one side to counter and Saka and Bellerin on the other.

Our wide players have been too isolated all game.

This is what happens when you play first team players in Europa league against farmers, most of them seems to be gassed out.

Can't question the actual tactics of Arteta today but the personnel for me is the issue.

I dunno about that. Sure the first half we looked good going forward but that second half was absolute dogsh!t.

It's like we don't want to attack, don't want to make runs in the final third or create triangles at the edge of the box.

We hardly play one-twos, we hardly do anything that indicates we want to be a serious threat to the opposition, it's just drip pass slowly, slowly, backwards then slowly forwards again.

I don't get it.

Both Lacazette and Aubemeyang are average footballers. Vardy over either every day of the week for me.

The thing is you play to their strengths and you will see a difference. Imagine Vardy under Arteta? He would be spending most of his time in his defensive 3rd. See how good he looks then
