    We only 1 point worse at this stage last season that explains we are not improving at all going backward instead

    Big Sam bascially stated what happened and their tatics in the press conference (to take advantage of the space our fullbacks give and the lack of protection they offer our CBs) and we had no plan B against it.

    Feels like this is every game now. Bellerin caught up field -> Mustafi isolated, too much ground to cover -> Defense gets spread thin and someone is open in the box.

    It's like clockwork now. Happens more often against weak teams because the FBs get even more reckless.

    And the silly old git could have had him back for peanuts instead of letting him go to Chelsea but his wounded ego and a very disappointing Özil stood in the way. Joke stuff. The number of times he's shot himself in the foot is truly staggering. I didn't like the way Cesc left any more than anyone else but the guy wanted to come back and Wenger wasn't having it but it was fine to bring Flamini (who also pissed off) back into the fold because he didn't hurt Wenger's feelings as much when he left. Lunacy.

    Benteke had a tap-in ruled offside. It might as well count as 4-0 to make it as embarassing as the double 5-1 losses to Bayern.

    Positives from the match:
    Martinez showing a lot of enthusiasm and willingness to scold other players.
    Gabriel almost scoring from a header, showing he could head.

    Cesc is a bonus. Even Paul Merson walks into this team.

    This whole lot is just pathetic.

    GOOD! Boy can piss off. This game is for men and he isn't a man. Little child is what he is. Scared little child.

    Exactly this, mustafi is getting so much stick but he's basically covering the entire right of the defence at times.

    When we go forward instead of having a CM ready to drop into CB and mustafi being pushed to RB during a counter, the CM are far to high up the pitch and get caught all the time.

    Wenger is stuck on this Barcelona tactic from about 6 years ago, difference is we don't press in numbers to win the ball back high up the pitch. Not to mention they had busquets who didn't move from 15 yards in front of the CB the whole game.

    Exactly, I would not mind bellerin being caught up field if he was producing magic up there! But he can't cross, pass or retain possession!

    So he's constantly chasing back! I actually don't think he is good enough! He's weak in the air weak in the tackle and gets exposed quite a bit!

    Flamani was free that's why he cam back!

    Shame really. I actually used to rate him highly. Then again, I used to rate Coquelin. Don't think we'll be having to fend off interest from big clubs any time soon.

    No, you should get ready!

    I was telling you to be careful back when you and others were telling me to stop being pessimistic and that Wenger was building something special way back in November.

    Regardless I'm just winding you up - nobody could predict this. I thought it would be the same old good but not good enough. :lol:

    I guess this is what happens when you aim for the top four and the five other teams around you aim for the title. When you miss out on the title you get a CL spot, when you miss out on your CL spot you get this.

    It's a pity that Jenkinson didn't join CP in the winter, just imagine: Flamini and Jenkinson celebrating the victory over Arsenal.
