"Surely"? What does that mean? Maybe they're just not.

The only really good players we have are Saka and Tierney. Partey and Pepe were supposed to be good but plenty of big money transfer don't come off, maybe they won't make it. Auba used to be good but now he's old. Laca used to be OK but he's clearly dropping off. ESR, Martinelli, Ödegaard might be good one day.

I don't see all the quality in the squad that leaves us "surely" good enough to beat these teams.

Are we playing a prime Barcelona? Or a peak Manchester United?

We’re playing some farmers from Czech Republic and dropping points to dross like Burnley. If you think the players that Arteta has at his disposal aren’t good enough to beat those teams then you’re absolutely tapped.

A good manager can use the players at his disposal and push them to their maximum and that’s the type of manager that we need.

We missed alot one 1v1 the only Prague chance from build up play came from counter other than that it was shy efforts it's story of our season not ruthless and make mistakes manutd had only 3 shots against Granada they don't have scrubs tho.
Sure. But we didn't have the game under control at any point. And they did hit the post just before the equaliser.

Yeah, that’s a fair point. I think there’s fault on both sides but ultimately if the performances keep going like this then surely something has to change.

The problem is we looked a far better team when those three players were on today. The issue has been our acquisition of so called experienced players like Willian, who add nothing.
I agree entirely on your assessment of Willian, who is taking minutes away from Nelson. But I find it hard to believe that Ceballos made any impact as a sub unless he's giving a goal away.

The worrying thing is that Slavia Prague can play a lot better than they did at the Emirates. As opposed to being happy with the draw, their manager talked about how poor they were 🤣

Yeah, they know they can do better and correctly identified Lacazette as the player that was causing issues for them, it was a sensible comment that reflected how the game went.

We showed our only trick and didn't manage a good result, while he got the goal advantage and now understands how limited our team is. We will need some individual inspiration from our players to be able to make it through.

None of their starting XI at the emirates are in the squad for today's game against Sparta Prague.

Be scared, Arsenal, Be scared.

No we aren't. He actually conned us to believe he improved us defensively by Playing 11 men behind the ball and losing by 1 goal margins.
Not at all apart from last few games we actually looked good we had 3rd best defensive record in PL after like 20 games but bad habits back again.
