Probably a twisted ankle, back for Newcastle in 2 weeks.
Can we please stop going into meltdown again?
Half the forum was in awe of the talent pool and promise the players have shown. We conceed two goals on the other end in a meaningless game, but there's no news.
We already know that Nacho is finished, sadly. We already know that AMN is a midfielder, not a defender. That's why we are getting Tierney, maybe even a RB (Alves?) and possibly Rugani with hopes on Holding and Bellerin coming back soon.
Gtfoh am I kicking into him. He was good but faded. Needs to calm down a bit in front of goal, been a bit too eager last couple of games and timing let him down.
You must be Nigerian. Yea Nketiah really needs that loan. Nelson and John Jules can fill the void of the third forward. Nelson can play LW, 10 and as a inside forward.
I've always said here that it's difficult to pin point if our defensive issue are down to personnel or coaching.
For years we watched Arsène play different players at the back with little or no improvement. Then Bouldy was promoted to first team and we thought, "surely now we would do better?" Only to have same issues.
Now we have a new manager, who has played different formations and brought in one or two defenders, yet no improvement.
On the contrast, you see City play Otamendi in defense yet they go several games without conceding.
I'm not an expert so really difficult to tell.
I say this because I see many clamouring for new defenders. Do you guys think change of on the field personnel will solve the problem?
I think we've played well overall. Passing was on a good level and we were always dangerous going forward. We've made only 2 errors at the back, both resulting in a goal and that won't happen always.
Ceballos is a great addition to this squad and young players proved again that they can be trusted at the highest level, that's the most important thing I will take from the game.
Did Sylvinho get a nice reception?
A friendly game people. That is all.
Been good preseason for him no matter what you say. He is getting into good goal scoring positions. The more he plays the sooner he will start to score.
Bad loss today but hard to blame attackers. We need to attack with better idea when we dont have cut backs.
Our attack once hopefully Pepe signs looks brilliant, assuming it’s only one of Lacazette/Aubameyang at a time.
He's a good but confidence based player. Completely falls apart within minutes if things doesn't go his way
Maitland-Niles had most of last season at RB and arguably looks worse the more he plays there. It’s not fair on him or the team.
yes..thats what I said. The part about the manager and players not being good enough had already been said. I was replying.
The fans that keep shouting shoot any time Xhaka is in the opposition half need a good hiding btw. Xhaka too for obliging them.
Disappointed, but not surprised. So typical to beat Bayern, draw with Real and then lose against Lyon.
Mustafi can really **** off. Everytime he waves his hand asking for offside you know it's on. We also have no real full back atm so we need to get Tierney asap.
Friendlies are games to rotate all your players in over the 90 minutes. Wouldn't read too much into results, apart from concerns over the backline.
obviously, some people are commenting without watching the match.
AMN was injured before/during the first goal. you could see him grimacing in pain and limping while walking just after the goal
that said, our defence still suck lol
