    Have admit I fell asleep after 30 or so minutes.

    In that time Cedric was getting caught out postion and looked slow to recover on a couple of occasions.

    It has been said before-

    But it feels like this combination of personnel was always going to perform poorly.

    It felt like it was asking far too much of Ceballos to be our only player with anything on the ball to offer.

    He and xhaka have worked well because- for whatever their flaws are- they are both ball players- torrieria is not and struggled to offer anything.

    Without that in the centre of the park- you need some creativity from the wings. But both PEA and eddie were there- and they are essentially both primarily finishers. Totally worth sticking one of the wing because of their propensity to get on the end of stuff and generally work hard, but it feels like a massive sacrifice to play both instead of a midfielder/winger who might offer something in the build-up. Or if we do play both of them, surely we need the centre of the park having creativity as their number 1 priority.

    We kind of ended up with a semi static front three just waiting to get on the end of things from a midfield who just couldn't get the ball into them.

    I don't know why arteta couldnt spot it a mile off- but hopefully we will learn!

    I don't give a **** because a some of our players have done it in the past whereby they just get distracted by opponents and they joke around on the pitch.

    I doubt it would have been highlighted if he'd scored a double we won.

    Nothing to see here really

    The wing back role doesn't suit him imo. Shame AMN might t be leaving.
