    I looked at their line-up and thought, "Bloody hell! That's not a half-bad team there."

    Big fan of Declan Rice, be disappointing when he ends up going to City to sit on their bench.

    How does Xhaka not work? Wtf?

    He's easily our best midfielder, and without him our transitional play is ****. Torreria is a slight upgrade on Coquelin in that regard, and nothing more. Don't get me started on the rest.

    I agree Torreira seems to have become massively overrated. We're still leaking goals with him in midfield.

    He started ok, but he's been woeful for a good few weeks now. Had an absolute shocker at Anfield.

    Excluding Özil from the squad and having 3 fullbacks on the bench was simply stupid.

    Saw the bet365 ad at half-time and thought of placing a bet on him scoring next. Think he just placed a header wide and thought he was getting into good positions. Looking after a very active toddler made it impossible, though.

    Could happen, but don't underestimate his love for the club. After the game yesterday he went to celebrate with fans at his local pub:

    Yeah it’d be good for the league if he stayed. Although I thought Delph would stay at Villa tbf.

    Relying heavily on No End Product Iwobi and Cut-back Kolasinac to create chances also doesn't work.

    You’re right it’s not even clear, not going forward anyway.

    Right now yes. Think I subconsciously swayed towards the crowd, I’m definitely giving him a year. Both Klopp and Pep needed a year even with their millions spent.

    I looked at the starting line up and thought it was off. I don't know why we persist with three at the back but it seems we cannot play a back 4 without Nacho abd Hector. Auba and Laca are making mistakes in judgement and execution up front. Laca looks desperate having been hooked so much. There's a lot of criticism flying at GuendouzI but I praise his effort. He got in to some good positions and found some good if over hit passes and I couldn't help but wonder what Özil might have done in those positions...As some have said, there's a few in the West Ham team who would improve us so I hope our attitude to squad strengthening is changed if only in the summer.

    I don’t rate him. Not dynamic enough for me. Prone to mistakes, too slow on the ball and off it. He’s old enough and been here for long enough to be rated. 22 year old new to the league Torreira has not imo

    I don’t watch enough football to tell you who’d replace him but there are better probably cheaper midfielders out there

    Xhaka is bin juice. Needs replacing.

    The thing that always sticks in my throats is that we paid more for xhaka than Chelsea did for Kante

    Only on A-M can £25m be more than £29.2m

    Plus people conveniently ignore Kante wanted to join Chelsea.

    Apologies I was wrong. I am big enough to admit it

    Kante not being at Arsenal is 100% down to Grimandi. Wenger took the fall for him.
