    You see I'd buy that with Lacazette because hes somewhat of a poacher, has shown some great fininshing. can turn and shoot from any angle and his all round game is decent and even at his worst hes a nuisance to the other team. I just dont see much in Pepe that he will come good here, and how many matches are we willing to sacrifice, how many points for him?

    True, but still quiet, although expected in the situation!

    I agree he was garbage today and I was very angry at his misplays as well but playing him on the left was a terrible idea and he needs a second season

    Like I can't see him going this soon so he'll get another season alright, I just dont think he deserves to start. Like whatever about anything else it is the passing that kills any enthusiasm for me, its Arsenal you have to be able to pass... and yes some of our other players aren't great either but they should be gone as well.

    To be fair. They battered us today. He was the worst of the front line but there was no service. Our two goals were turnovers.

    I like him and advocate for him but overall he doesn't look like he knows what to do in this team

    We may get £30m for him, massive loss if we sell him.

    Totally unfair on him.

    We done something in the second half we never did before.

    Yet he gets blamed.

    This team is a mess.

    Feel he will transition to striker at some point.

    I don't think he was helped by being played on the opposite side - however, I thought he was poor not just because of that, but there was a distinct lack of application from him that I found to be a little ugly. There wasn't much urgency or focus in his play. He just kinda meandered through this game not really making an impact on anything around him. Contrast to Nelson on the other flank, who was definitely not that much better himself, but applied himself by pressing, and putting himself in the right positions to cause the opposition problems and ended up making his own luck by scoring and pressing the mistake for Laca to score.

    Don't wanna pile on Pepe, he's talented but he is not doing the basic stuff at the moment and his flashes of brilliance are too few and far inbetween at the moment. Got a lot of work to do.

    I think Bielsa played him there and it didn’t end well iirc

    Pepe is just at the moment complicating things he dribble too much he run stright at defenders and want to do everything by himself he'll need to learn it's team game. At Lille was more simple for him because the league quality not high and he was playing with more stable team and with clean plan

    Next season will be the real barometer to how I view the Pepe signing. A tough first season is not out of the norm when arriving in a new league, but considering his age, he'll need to string together some solid performances soon. It's the least we could expect of him; he's our record signing after all fair or not.

    Hopefully that's the last time we see him playing on the left. Clearly doesn't work.
