    The effort from people like Pepe and PEA was abysmal too. Can't just be Özil.

    Arteta had a quick word to protect his new charges.

    Pep's body language was so funny - the dude genuinely felt sorry for us

    Nice to see the fans singing for their team at the end.

    The bottom line is that we're just not a good team any more. Too many past their sell by date and some who've never really been good enough. Add to that the young players that we're giving chances to (which I fully agree with) and I doubt even top 6 is reachable this season.

    Just for poops n giggles, I'm going to rate the players today.

    Leno 7
    AMN 4
    Sokratis 4
    Chambers 3
    Kolasinac 6 (Saka 6)
    Guendouzi 5
    Torreira 5 (Willock - not on long enough to get a rating)
    Özil 3 (Smith-Rowe 6)
    Pepe 5
    Aubameyang 5
    Martinelli 6

    Don't insult the players mate. I understand your frustration, but it's only a game.

    City was playing with four midfielders and Arsenal with only two, do you find that funny? The way they were walking in the middle of Arsenal side?

    Probably, but I'd like to see us put a proper, functional midfield and defence behind our front 4. It was annoying listening to the commentators compare Özil and De Bruyne - there's no doubt that De Bruyne is miles ahead these days but we have literally no midfield and defence. The ease with which City (and pretty much every team the last couple of seasons) were able to just bypass our midfield is criminal. We put up such little resistance, we have no physicality or power at all in the middle of the park. Look at how deep Özil, Martinelli, Pepe often had to come to even get the ball...

    Arteta probably wanted the squad to have some confidence for when he takes over. Thanks Mikel.

    I'm not arguing with him me and @Makingtrax have a long enough history where we respectfully disagree. And respectfully disagreeing with him is much better than even thinking about where we are just now.

    I actually think Özil does care about football a lot, look at him punting his gloves after coming off or when he kicked a locker after a game when Wenger was here. It just doesn’t seem to carry over into his work rate or aggressiveness on field.

    Haha China backed. That's some wild conspiracy theory right there and from a mod as well.

    Özil has never been as good as KDB even on his best day.

    And you believe that? When has Wenger openly discussed on going business. Even when signing players he would deny so.

    Like I said before, you honestly believe he has received zero offers? Then you must be delusional.
