    I was annoyed with Wenger again last night, why does he always go and change things when we are playing well. From the moment he took off Lacazette for Coq we were up against it. Why not go for the next goal rather than think oh 1-3 we are safe now. We are Arsenal 2017, we are never safe!

    To add to the discussion on the sameness point: The reason we were safe at 3-1 was because of the pace of Laca and Alexis, with at least one trying to get in behind forcing their defence back. Ozick also joined in occasionally. WHen Laca came off no one is doing that anymore because Alexis decides to play as a false-9 when he is through the middle, which is only good when you had fast wise players.
    We ended up with an incredibly disjointed mid and attack. Wilshere didn’t seem to know where he was playing, and there were a couple of clips AMN was telling Coq what to do

    Exactly, our GD is way down on the teams above us, it could end up being the difference between 4th or 5th. or even 6th or 7th :(

    Yep, attack used to be the best form of defense in The Wenger manual, not any more!

    Bellerin is 22, he’s still developing, yet not many, if any, I would take over him from world football.

    Bellerin is fine.

    I thought we stopped playing once we subbed off Lacazette. On several occasions we had the opportunity to play forward yet we faffed around with the ball, ended up playing it back to Cech who then pumped it upfield and allowed Palace to start an attack - we did this so many times once we brought on Le Coq. We had an extra midfielder but seemed to lose control of the game allowing Palace into the match.

    We really should have been adding goals rather than trying stave off Palace at the end. If we're forced to defend, we can't without a great big dollop of luck, simple.

    The fact that we had played so well for most of the game and really should have won by more could have been totally wasted due to our weak defensive aptitude.

    Bellerin's so heavily criticised while Kolasinac has been quite underwhelming on the whole yet people were baffled by him being dropped for a couple of games.

    Henry is a prick of a pundit. Really brought into the Sky machine with some of his crap.

    He is there to stir the pot. Getting more and more feeling that Henry doesnt care about Arsenal at all.
