    It was a poor spectacle and Everton were shocking and undoubtedly there for the taking, but I saw an Arsenal team playing for their shirts with pride today, which made a decent change.

    What's really disgusting about VAR are aweful decisions including giving too many offside calls when we should still consider tough decisions to be onside.

    That ****ing handball bullshit that has heated up over a decade now is annoying me big time.
    Never understood why we even changed the rules back in the days when nobody really had a problem except for one game where people have felt treated badly and made it all worse.

    Also how that possible that Everton had zero shots on target? Shows you when you work as team things can improve our players just refusing to do it

    Time to get rid. You can't blame emery for Özil behavior

    In a pretty makeshift backline too. Luiz was a bit clownish at the start but grew into the game, Chambers was solid for most of the game till the last 5-10 mins or so, and AMN and Saka - a midfielder and a winger, respectively - both had very good, solid showings.

    I think Emery did the right thing in keeping him out, it was only when he became desperate that he bought him back. I don't think Arteta will stand for his childish behaviour, well done to Freddie for not only talking to Özil about his behaviour but also going public. Too many Özil fans think he's the victim, he's not, he's a player in decline!

    Biggest mystery was why Pepe didn’t get a look in.

    No, rather time for unconditional Özil worshippers to start hating Ljungberg.

    I'm not trying to protect Emery, yes he had lots of faults, nearly as many as Özil :)

    we need to see him play in one game after a couple of weeks of training under Arteta before writing him off entirely

    after seeing Xhaka and Torreira today, both apparently wanting out, there may be some hope of redemption for Özil and others

    I honestly think Ljungberg thought it wasnt the right time for a risky dribbler (which Pepe is).
    The game was so tight at the end, a wrong transition could've been dangerous.
    You can say it was too pragmatic, i honestly was glad we didn't risk everything and settled with a point.

    Peoe and Laca starting and we would have beaten them.

    What have we got to loose by not going all out at this stage?

    Freddie way too cautious.

    This is the kinda game that would have Emery creaming his pants. A 0-0 draw with no attack whatsoever.

    The defense was pretty good actually, especially with who we had in there. However, the attack was abysmal. Every player slowed us down with either bad first touches, poor passing, etc. There wasn’t an ounce of creativity from the midfield onwards. ESR, Auba were invisible, Reiss and Gabriel had a couple flashes, but that was it. We don’t have a single player that can take over a game and control the tempo or attack. We didn’t have a single player willing and able to dribble at a defender and beat him. Pepe can be that guy, but Mikel will have to coach him to be more direct.

    Özil’s not even good enough. When playing he actually makes the team worse.
