That was the B team. And looked what happened when they came on.
Loved this at the time
Time to cash in on Alexis and get as much as we can for him in January. He's not been the same since the City speculation. Tragic and sad as it is.
Players still down because of manutd game I mean seriously that s**the excuse Wenger making players looks like they are kids not pros
Lol makes you wonder whether they're internationals or a bunch of emo punks. Embarrassing stuff even by Wenger's lofty standards.
So what's his excuse for not starting the A team then?
And this was my reply to you last week after the Man Utd defeat, when you said as long as your Xg or whatever was high, as it was Vs Man Utd, then it's a good thing going forward
You're in trouble if you lose, period. There's no joy to be had going forward because your xYZb2X was high. We lost. And as we've seen before, losses damage us and there's far from any guarantee we'll carry on producing whatever it was that was helping us to paper over the deficiencies.
And here we have Wenger saying they weren't quite over the loss... This is the same bunch of players we both watch every week.. Why is it I can see that we don't handle crushing defeats well and you can't?
Giroud with the last minute goal
Yes if we lost the game in last minute or unfairly then I can understand that but we lost because of s**t mistakes we made the players should've looking to respond not be down
If the players are happy with Wenger saying they weren't over the Man Utd defeat then **** me, we really do have a problem.
4.56 against United, 0.58 against Southampton. 1 goal scored in both of them. This is why stats like these are effing useless.
what a stupid defensive team, Southampton. Get relegated, please!
Also why it's important to understand the context. United allowed us a lot of freedom. 2 nil up within ten minutes away at the Emirates. We may have had more chances then Mourinho may have liked but they stopped pressing once they went two up. Then when we scored they went up and scored themselves.
We've been poor in different ways in both games. The only consistent feature is that our defensive is shambolic.
Glad we played the experienced lads instead of youngsters against BATE, the confidence we gained in smashing them really showed today
Keeping the likes of Giroud, Welbeck and Wilshere fit and sharp will pay off when the fixtures start coming thick and fast.
Even today we were bailed out by our subs.
I can’t believe he’s actually said this.
Makes perfect sense to me?
Yes ofcourse it makes sense but imo it's a pretty useless stat if you want to use it as a measure for how good or bad you really are and if you want to use it as a prediction tool for future matches. Every single game is different, played under different circumstances. Pulling in a 4.56 xG in one game doesn't mean you'll do similar numbers in the next one.
The deluded apologists were out in droves last weekend saying we made unfortunate mistakes at the back, but created loads of chances so everything is rosy. How about today? We could've been 3 down after 10 minutes we won't have won 5 away games by the end of the season with this ****e. The absolute state of our defence and centre midfield. The whole setup is cack.
who cares about truth? If the Manager can hide behind such pathetic excuses, and the players get no negative reaction, the ship carries on as before - sailing into the next storm.
Just watched the game and managed to avoid the result, we were poor all over. Alexis was non-existent, Kos made errors again, a string of 3 at one point, Bellerin & Kola were quiet down the wings, and Welbeck apparently came on as sub.
