    Just crap from starr to finish more to do with the Unai first half set up than the team

    We’re getting ******* by Championship level strikers.

    They all looked like Aguero today.

    It’s an annoying result but we have to remember this is his first season, Klopp and Poch has these types of results their first go around as well. Think that long unbeaten run clouded our judgment, this is very much a work in progress.

    Still, a five point gap to 3rd isn’t a disaster at this stage of the season.

    I belive the outcome would have been different had he started. His pass rush is so underrated while our Dortmund export generates zero pass rush.

    He was clearly not going to be ready for the premier league after six months out and playing in a stroll of a match on Thursday, where a random guy on the street would've looked comfortable.

    Our luck was going to run out and we didn't deserve anything from that, awful performance.
    Europa is still our best chance at the CL. Top 4 is going to be a huge struggle.

    Obviously the keeper has had a complete mare - but I honestly thought we lost attacking momentum when Özil came on. Just my opinion mind.

    Unai Emery has turned into Wenger all of a sudden. Xhaka at CB. What's up with that?
    If you're lacking CB's don't play 3 at the back you donut.

    This is down to Unai selecting the wrong lineup, I think. Why not play with 4 in the back? Lichtsteiner, Kos, monreal, xhaka

    Iwobi is just a slimmer Ox. Great dribbler and ball carrier, very strong, decent pass- but you see where it matters in the final third, his finishing touch is Championship level.

    Wow just seen the goals back- Kos has a direct hand in all of them. He played like an absolute ***** today. Horrendous 0 out of 10 performance. Disaster class. Look at his head go down after we concede the third...

    CARDIFF BEAT THIS LOT LAST WEEK!!!!

    I said previously, I don’t blame Leno for trying something at that point. Several times, including their goal, this had happened.

    Think he fathered try something than watch on as he had before. It’s Lehmannesque, and I loved Man Jens

    If we are truly honest with ourselves, then we need to admit this truth.

    Auba is not all that, a bit overrated actually.

    Don't know why there is such a meltdown at the moment. We played poorly with a depleted defense (which isn't great even at full strength).

    Still a lot of the season to go and the amount of garbage being posted... over 20 games unbeaten with a completely new manger all things considered

    Flaws shown in all their glory I thought. Guendouzi and Leno too (well, Leno at the end anyway).

    First game in a while that really pissed me off. What this loss should do though is provide clarity on where we need to improve going forward, despite the two goals. We're bound to lose some time so I'm gonna take this on the chin.

    Too many injuries. Kolasanic going down in training didn't help. Leichsteiner getting injured during the game didn't help. But we can't keep blaming bad luck. Poor decision making poor finishing are as much to blame for what we saw today.
