When you have a clueless manager you get crappy results. The team selections are shockingly poor and he makes up for it by being clueless when it comes to tactics. He needs to be fired. We will never win anything of importance with him at the helm.

No its not.It may be best group of players but not best team.

12-13,13-14 teams beat ,dortmund,marseliie,napoli,bayern.Those teams would'nt lose to zagrebs,monaco's,olympiakos ffs.

Our midfield was better with arteta ,rambo,song,ozil in them.We even scored goals with giroud ffs.Now struggle with pacey opstyions up top hilarious.

Absolutely not....the league has become so much weaker that teams of the 08-10 had completely different competition.

Is there any club in world football that have brought upon disappointments, heartbreaks, trauma, distress, depression on its fans quite like Arsenal football club have done for years? One weekend we play spectacular scintillating football and thrash teams like Stoke City and Leicester City, midweek we capitulate whilst serving up pathetic dross displays against European minnows like Zagreb and Olympiakos.

My only hope now is bayern beat us in both games and we exit Europe all together because I desperately don't want the europa league as much as I'd love to make it out of the group stages. The thing with this club is it wouldn't surprise me to see us beat bayern in both games as well as beating both Zagreb and olympiakos seeing as we haven't failed to qualify from the group stages under 'he who shall not be mentioned'. But even if we likely exit Europe, we'll find a way to f**k up in the league again. Doesn't that just sum up Arsenal football club?

Only in name.


Our squads with Fabregas, Nasri, Hleb, Eduardo, Adebayor etc punched well above their weight in terms of star power.

It's only in name because of the manager. Individually, each of these players is far better than what's being served up

At least we can look forward to his post match write up.

Face facts it was a struggle first half an easy 50-50 game. first half. We only started playing second half & then we still took one due to comical work.Full backs not even in defensive position after kick off,cbs being slow to be goal side.

We barely created anything all of it was forced by sanchez.Ozil & santi created f**k all.Ozil was ghost we was not good first half at all.I just dont understand how a pro does'nt see obvious flaws in team selections and fielded players.You train everyday.

Think the match worked it self out rightly.Olympiakos are good for their win. Wegns still cant accept the obvious team selection.Rather fight the obvious sensible choice.As for manure he plays this shite mdifield or rambo outwide we are in trouble.

Sanchez on his knees and shit my gosh.

All this will be water under the bridge if we just do the business against ManUre come the weekend. I don't care about CL this year after all these years of failing at that competition and not bothering to strengthen the squad in the summer to give it an honest go. Makes no difference to me if we lose in the group stages or the first knockout round. Just focus on the domestic league and that will be a satisfactory season as far as I'm concerned. When you dial down your own ambitions and vision of the club to match that of the manager then there is no room for feeling upset, disappointed or let down. Just my $0.02

Just seen the interview. I felt sorry for him in a way, but it is to some extent self-inflicted. It seems like every change he made went wrong. Ospina with the own goal, Ox with the unlucky deflection and Gibbs didn't cover himself in glory for the third goal. Even Coq looked off the pace to me. The replacements have to a greater or lesser extent let hi m down, but he has to take responsibility overall. I would have made only one change max to the back four as I think keeping that consistent is the most important. From hereon in, we have no choice but to play full strength injuries aside.
