Good result despite looking a bit toothless. We lost that fixture last season.

For us it is November that always brings these snip games - pure laziness and lack of focus as the season heads towards the end of the year. We regain our focus in the New year when we're 15-20 points behind the leaders.

Get something at vorskla and we have had our best November in 5 years

Are you retarded?

You want to take off our one striker?

Who's going to be up front Ramsey? no Welbeck, no Laca.


Aubamayang has been worse than dreadful.
Nketiah is a striker.
Bring him on - he can't possibly be worse.

The game is not about names.


No its about ability, Nketiah has barely featured this season, if Emery brings him on for Auba and we lose, Emery would be rightfully torn apart by the fans and pundits.

............. however I wouldn't be adverse to benching Iwobi or Mkhi for Nketiah and see how he does.

Auba can score at any moment, don't forget that, Laca and Auba have been doing that all season.


I'm with you on Laca - shame he is injured today.
But Auba hasn't been good this season. He's only looked the part as a sub against tired defenders.
He's been awful today and deserves to be taken off.
I think Iwobi has done ok and he is far more likely to hold the ball and create a chance than Auba.
Younger players have to get a chance sometime - being afraid to lose and afraid to take risks is not a good trait in any manager

Aubamayang started all these games
Cardiff away goal 62 mins
Vorskla home goals 32/56
Everton home goal 59 mins
Palace away goal 56 mins
Bournemouth away 67 mins
Was subbed on Leicester home goals 63/66 mins
If defenders are tired after an hour the problem is with them and their fitness coach
Not with a goal scoring Arsenal forward

Can’t believe Miki or Iwobi are playing in front of Rambo. They were so poor.

I thought Mustafi decided to make the tackle or the foul at the end to deny the shot. I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt on that one.

He was awesome at attacking and this is clearly demonstrated by the two assists he got today.

He was shambolic at the back, though. It doesn't take a genius to work out why Bournemouth were targeting our left hand side more than they were on the other flank. He isn't always quick enough in getting back to defend and he loses focus too easily.

He's going to have to be a lot sharper against Spurs because their wide players will cause us all sorts of problems if he gifts them the space and time that Bournemouth had today.

I'll give him the benefit of the doubt because he's not had a solid run of games and his Arsenal career to date has been very stop-start. But he needs to improve. And fast.

I don't know, I thought his performance as average, he was a little lucky with first assist, second was deserved. But if I was Pep, I don't see him ever playing as a left back regular. I think Emery knows this too, he simply lacks flair to be a dangerous wing back.

Bellerin on the other side is at least dangerous on the run, he is improving defensively.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if we had the likes of somewhere even close to L Baines or Carvajal we would be fierce on the width.

Saw the highlights.

Howe has made B'Mouth into a good side fighting above their weight.

We could've been a little more precise in attack, but days like today happen.

Leno doesn't make me nervous like Cech. He's played well this season.

Leno saved us today IMO. We honestly didn't create many chances at all and could easily have dropped 2pts right at the end because of Mustafi's FK give away.

Says a lot about Bmouth that we needed Ozi(/Laca to make things comfortable. BTW, why isn't Ramsey starting? Unless he is off in Jan, he should be starting ahead of Mhikitaryan.

I actually quite like our formation today, think we use the width very well. We might have lost possession in the middle, but the formation actually gave us enough players in defence, 3CB, 2DM.

Mkhitaryan was poor but Iwobi is a handful and his pass is what split the defence to put Kolasinac through to cross to Auba for the goal. Not everything he tries comes off but we need players willing to take the opposition on to force and opportunity.

Ramsey will play UEFA game but I'm not in favour of giving him a starting place over Mkhitaryan and Iwobi. He's on his way out the door and have to start getting used to life without him. It's not as if he's a super consistent player that has a vital function for us either. His contribution is simailr to Mkhitaryan's and Iwobi's. The one goal Ramsey has scored for us this season came from the bench.
