Haha. Sensible. Wenger. Ha.

Do you remember the man utd game? or schalke at home? or even norwich? all equally as bad if not worse performances than this


At-least we kept the ball to some extent even if did not create feck-all in those games. At-least we put a few passes together in coherence in those games. Today we struggled to string 2-3 forward passes together. The passing has been not up to our usual standards this season but today's game was painful to watch.

If only Kos and Ramsey didn't miss when it was easier to score for f**k sake. So after 13 games we're 6th (can be 7th after tomorrow), 4 points from 4th (can be 6 tomorrow) and 10 from 1st (can be 11 tomorrow). Tell me again how we can win the title this season.

Piss poor performance offensively, almost everything good has happened when we played through the middle and yet most of our attacks have been played through the flanks with poor crosses.

To think people have been talking about an "easy" run of games, we can't pull a bloody goal against a side this weak, we surely don't deserve to be a contender.

Hmm lack of penetration, three of our midfielders playing on the same height... could go on and on but can't be arsed.

We aren't sh*t... All we lacked today was penetration. Don't forget we defended all our set pieces well for once and at times really passed the ball well under immense pressure

Has it not occurred to you that maybe Villa played well today? They were both hopeless and unlucky last week, and this week they came with a game-plan and executed to perfection.
