    garbage he was bought as a near finished product

    just like the rest of the 30-60 M pound players we buy. If I saw evolution in his game as he try’s to match the intensity If the prem then I may be more understanding.

    You are spot on there about our strikers this year, at times & important times they have either not shot hard enough or just in a good position for the keeper to make the save, easy save. The only player who shot in the right direction tonight was our goal scorer Pepe, you've got to commend him, what a strike. Saka was very unlucky though, that was going in, the keeper wouldn't have got their, I thought that was going in. Auba & Laca have to improve their finishing though, Laca especially, too many easy & soft shots, especially headers. If the players aim for the corner & the keeper is central, shot hard enough you'll see so many more of those shots going in & a lit more goals so a few different results perhaps.

    He's one of the players that have to go, he's been absolutely hopeless too many times. Once again, held on the ball way too long like normal.

    The unadulterated truth yet, as suffering fans, we can only aim our displeasure at the most visible culprits & unfortunately, he's front & centre.

    I hate to be this petty but I've been left with little recourse :lol:

    We are being terrible since 2010 more or less. I would like to know when this club could fight to get again the PL or to fight seriously in European competition. Every year I always think that that year it could be our year and we can win something but when you see our squad how they play on the pitch my dream bit by bit starts to fall

    how can any players respect the club or the manager, when they see Guendouzi fannying around like he owns the place, and Özil treated as if he was a charity case from the projects.

    You cannot develop a competitive and merit-based culture if you pull crap like that.

    We haven't been terrible since 2010, since 2017/18 we've been goddamn awful. We had Koscielny, Cazorla, Alexis, Özil, Ramsey, Wilshere in their prime around 2014/15 and played some good football which led many to believe we could compete sooner rather than later.

    Of course we've had our big game losses but I also remember us beating Barcelona, United 3-0, Liverpool 4-1 with the team on fire. We could match City (Community Shield win for instance), beat Chelsea in the FA Cup Final.. thats not terrible.

    What we've been doing since Wenger's last season is terrible. We moved from technical quick football to mimicking Stoke City.

    No way can you do that, it's almost just getting ridiculous now how he consistently does that. He shows energy at least though, only good thing about his game. You'd think a few of the players are starting to get sick of it aswell, why can't Arteta do something about it though.

    I have become very nostalgic recently about our 2013-2015 period, as you listed many good characters and very good players there.

    Worryingly I feel it will be quite a while before I have that level of connection with the club again :(

    ...hi Jerry, long time lurker first post...just wanted to add that im not sure its current Boss man who is at fault. I dont have access to live games but what i see is a bloody toxic culture that starts with our greedy maggot owner (shave ya wanka) ...why is our beautiful club so toxic? Why are we less that mid table lower league clubs? Are we not ARSENAL!!!!! end Kronke

    Just the way life sometimes is mate, we have made many bad decisions and now this is where we are...agree it's not Arteta's fault.

    Arsenal had an "up" period, now this is a "down" period...just gonna have to all come to terms with it.

    I guess its just 'interesting' at best to see such an amazing decline in our beautiful club. This idea of no money i cant grasp...are we the end of a bad bet? I dont get it...we are no longer desired as a place as we have become toxic....*side note i have worn my arsenal tops everyday the last 10yr..every service its there!! You would hope for anything as a kid...these maggots get how much per week? Act like fools. ..bring in Kevin Muscat! !!

    I may be harsh on them and have my own complaints but we would have won this game if Xhaka and Torreira were starting tbh. Arsenal drop 15 points a season because of injuries. We're only now playing with 2 actual fullbacks after how many years?

    Dropping 15 points per year because of injuries, mathematically that would mean we'd be on 55 & in 3rd place, I doubt we'd be that high up, your right about winning if we had those 2 though I'd say.

    Let's say 10 points then.

    We'd probably be in 5th-6th spot I'd say. We probably have lost a few more games due to injuries though.

    I never have time to do this, but I have on this occasion. I watched the match again and noted all the actions by our midfielders.

    0.25 Guendouzi drives then plays a ball inside the fullback to Pepe.

    0.50 Brighton breakaway, Guendouzi retreats to centre half before he steps out to make a tackle. Midfield is nowhere to be seen.

    1.16 Ceballos gets the ball forward, gets it back, then loses it while trying to pass sideways.

    1.31 block by Saka

    3.44 Saka loses the ball

    3.52 Saka pass backwards

    3.59 Saka makes an angle plays it sideways

    4.11 Guendouzi pointing at centre backs where to pass and to move it faster.

    4.45 Ceballos high up pressing, leads to turnover and shot.

    5.23 aggressive press by Saka, leads to wayward pass, Guendouzi collects plays it to Ceballos, doesn't check shoulders, cruyff turns straight into player, gets tackled.

    5.40 Guendouzi points

    5.53 Guendouzi side steps to create space plays it sideways.

    6.52 Guendouzi accelerates and moves to create space rather than just jog around the centre circle marking himself out of the game. He didn't get the ball. But he moved.

    7.14 Saka pulls wide drives forward, plays the ball, gets it back, hits the bar.

    7.45 long ball, Guendouzi loses 50/50, Saka then wins 50/50, gets fouled. Note that he got clattered hard. Gets up straight away.

    8.11 Guendouzi pointing

    8.16 Ceballos loses the ball

    8.25 Guendouzi checks his shoulders, receives it off Kola, he has the option of a quick forward pass to Ceballos, checks back, points, plays it to Mustafi.

    8. 27 Ceballos first time pass over the top to Pepe, not executed well, but Pepe wins the duel.

    8.58 Brighton have the ball in their own third, both Saka and Ceballos are forward, Guendouzi has backed off to the point where he is almost between the centre backs. Big hole in midfield.

    9.20 first triangle between Ceballos, Saka and Guendouzi.

    34.00 Guendouzi shields well and plays it forward

    34.49 Ceballos loses the ball with a simple pass. Gives away foul. He's then too slow to close down the long ball that Leno gets injured from. Just so frustrating watching how casual it all is.

Bellerin picks up the ball on the touchline, plays it infield to ceballos, pepe moves in field and attracts the midfielder, Ceballos plays it between the full back and centre half for bellerin to run on it. Frozen at this moment, there is a line of 5 players running towards to the goal. Poor cross from bellerin means it doesn't go near any of them, all four in the box...

    86. 13 Ceballos retrieves and wins throw.

    87.00 Ceballos and Saka subbed off.

    From this point, midfield is a mess, there is no shape.
