Worst individual performance by an Arsenal player

Can't remember which game specifically as there are barely any YouTube videos of him :lol:

But this guy was a weirdo. Swapped shirts with Van Persie at Half Time :lol::lol: Had a poor performance on top of that.

Oh and he was caught in a police chase doing 145mph on the M25 because he was late for training. When police caught him, he said he didn't hear the sirens because his music was loud.

He was an absolute abomination of a player.

Going back a bit, all of Lee Chapman’s games at Highbury that I watched. The player at Leeds had to be genetically enhanced.

Can't believe nobody has mentioned the Arteta performance. Can't remember it exactly but he came on, conceded a penalty/own goal then got sent off/injured or something?
What game was this?

Giroud vs. Monaco for me. Almunia in CL final is a good shout too.

A lot of Flamini performances should be in there too. What was it Tottenham where he gifted a goal, aside from being absolutely terrible as per?

No mention of Xhaka in this fred. Why? Because despite all the scapegoating he has never had a terrible performance.
There’s too many to pick, fella, but honestly speaking Xhaka’s performance at home against Sp**s was one of the most brain-dead acts of malice I’d ever seen. Everyone knows what match I’m talking about. Giving away the dumbest penalty by drop kicking Son in the box and then proceeding to give away ten fouls without getting himself sent off. Honestly it was almost impressive. Gary Neville even said so himself. Bloke was hellbent on getting himself sent off.

Sp**s fans genuinely think Ledley King is the best ever English CB.

And although they are completely insane to think that, at least they back their players.

Arsenal fans, worst in the world.
Arsenal fans back the wrong players. The good players have to do a madness to get unanimously rated or just be good looking.

Think it was v West Brom or something.

Funny thing is I have never seen a youtube vid with a Xhaka mistakes leading to goals comp. Not really sure why, he's so popular and hated.

We need more fail comps for our players out there, our current football definitely deserves it.

People are having a laugh on here.The last time Arsenal didn't qualify for any sort of European competition was 26 years ago. Let that sink in. And we've been mid table for two years. We've never played such boring football since I started watching Arsenal. So surely the worst individual performances are likely to have come sometime in the worst collective performances. Simple probability.

For the performance itself, I'd say Traore in the 8-2 at Old Trafford. He looked unprofessional and disinterested, terrible. Someone said he played like a fan that won the lottery, lol.

For the implications - Almunia vs Barca 2006. At the time, it was just disappointment for me as I couldn't even technical decide that he was bad? In hindsight though, how do you concede that goal at your near post?

Henry also I find hard to forgive for those chances, as they're typically his bread and butter.

Arteta has the worst individual performance as a player (his infamous cameo) and as a coach (plenty of games). Legend.

We're talking about individual performances in one game though not over the course of a season or extended period. So Wenger being a better manager than Arteta isn't really relevant.

There were worse at least a couple of individual performances in that 8-2 whacking we got off Man Utd that were worse than anything under Arteta. Traore being a prime example. Looked like a Make A Wish kid out there that day.

Partey away at Crystal Palace just before he got injured was a shocking performance. He was misplacing the majority of his passes.

Then his substitute appearance v. Liverpool at League Cup when he got two quick yellows was equally shocking, it looked like the pitch was the last place he wanted to be after coming back from AFCON.

Holding v. Sp**s, enough said just like ESR v. Newcastle, White v. Brentford and so on.

Okay we can pick a few stand out inept performances under Wenger. Now do a best ever performances and the top 100 probably under Wenger.

To show my age, a few standouts under Graham, Hayes and Marwood take most of those. Woodcock’s five at Villa and a Paul Davis knockout. Liam Brady lit up Highbury many times, too often on his own.

As highlighted above, top 5 brain dead performances under Arteta, with Xhaka claiming at least 4.
