had we started?
Bob,,,,,,, you're taking the P.
Look, uhh, the protests by the fans as well made the team lose confidence and play a little bit with the handbrake on, leading to the loss. These people are fair-weather fans ready to criticise the team even before the season has started; they are a disgrace and the real reason the club is being held back.
I think what is important is to keep a sense of perspective; we are 6th out of 92 clubs. Under Wenger, we have never dropped out of the top 4 6, and have always had Champions League European football for 21 years. We are not as rich as the oil clubs and cannot afford to spend money on top players, even though we donate PL level careers & millions in wages to Make-A-Wish Foundation graduates and 200-year-old walking dead.
In the table, we are exactly where we should be based on what we spend. Leicester winning the title last year was a fluke, as are Tottenham's title challenges this year and last with a squad that costs far less than ours... OMG LOOK OIL CLUBS UNDERACHIEVING AFTER SPENDING OVER THE TOP LULZ! People whinging about spending money should look at the collapse of Portsmouth, Leeds, Leyton Orient or any other random irrelevant example to understand what could happen, instead of moaning.
We were a small Conference-level club without a history before Wenger took over and made us into global powerhouses. Be grateful that he dragged us like Baahubali into the modern era, coaching the players while simultaneously building a shiny new stadium brick by brick with his bare hands. ROFL at the people talking about a 'crisis' and taking everything so seriously; it's just a game!
Careful. There are still Wenger apologists that will actually take your post seriously.
I am with you on all that, but I do think the players should be tested for pdd's not 'Pdiddy's' cos that would be a bum rap,,,, groan
Disappointed by the lack of 'look uhh' but top post otherwise.
You watch the game and you're left dumbfounded by the amount of times our players lost possession of the ball.
Then again, it's not surprising when you consider that our manager doesn't abide by the basic principles of positional play, with there being a complete lack of connections between players on the field.
Literally our defense is left stranded by the midfield, forced into making long, risky passes which are easily picked off. When in possession of the ball in the attacking half/third, the delegation of roles between the midfield group is so poor that they basically stand narrowly clumped together or in a straight line, which acts as a serious impediment to positive ball movement. No wonder we look so labored in our possession play.
It's so clear that there is a complete lack of instruction in such key aspects of our game.
Passing lanes are easily closed down whereupon the player who has received the ball becomes a sitting duck, something which we saw plenty of times in this game.
I've totally given up on the league now, don't care who plays or where we finish. Actually, I hope we're not in the EL, that's all.
the worst bit of all is when players like Özil and sanchez simply kick the ball against an opposition player because there's no other forwrd options except to try and do the impossible by just getting it past a defender
i'm not condoning it mind but they look like sixth-form footballers by that point and that is down to Wenger
look at how other teams come forward so quickly compared to us - we slow everything down as we approach their box, allowing them to organise - this is down to Wenger and slow players like Giroud
it's almost the final bad thing about the season - WBA cannot catch us, so we're doomed to scrape into Europa league when what we need is to not be in anything like Liverpuddle and Chelsea before they had good seasons
Having no European football is overstated. Liverpool aren't in Europe in this season and they're probably going to miss top 4, United weren't in it in Van Gaal's first season and were nowhere close to winning the league. Having a week between matches would be meaningless without the right players/training.
IKR, but i just don't want to see us enter a pointless league only to be beaten 8-0 by FC Bungleslav
Thank you for your interest in our affairs.
This is the problem and we should send in the reserves when this league begins in a few weeks time.
I'm not sure the amount of games played is a problem if you are always winning. Teams in the late eighties played many more games with only one substitute. Teams that lose are just looking for excuses.
I'm not concerned about playing in EL next season. I'm concerned about who will be managing us!
absolutely we might even win a few games that way
Just a game? **** off
Leicester wasn't a fluke
sometimes "The whole is greater than the sum of its parts"
and a good tactician matters
I am grateful he dragged us into the modern era I am,
But Wenger can obviously not handle the post-modern era that we are in.
he was, like, joking....
