I have no words.

It's uncomfortable to watch a man have a breakdown in a live game.

.............I just have to console myself regarding Martinez with "We did it for Partey" that is the only comfort I have.

Start a petition to buy Martinez back next season #bringhimhome

You don't have to play him in every game of every competition to prove that he is Arsenal's #1.

His performance was a bit what he was known for when in Germany with Leverkusen, a very good shot stopper who made mistakes, kinda what we’re seeing.

Who else will we play that Icelandic guy who was number 2 at his last club?

We literally have no one else who is decent.

I'd have started him today. Leno in the Prem is fine. He doesn't need to play in every competition. Especially not at this stage.

Honestly why was he brought in if he isn't good enough for EL? Waste of a non HG spot

Agreed.

It's also a strange decision to include two goalkeepers on the bench.

Doesn't track back quick enough and just slowly wanders around. :rofll: :rofll:

Shouldn't be so bad in the space of a goal.

Good grief. Leno needs to sort it out. That was one to forget.

Seriously this guy needs a game on the bench,
It's a dangerous game playing a guy every game with so many fundamental flaws with the knowledge he is in the team regardless

Fundamental flaws. Wow some people need to get a grip. He saved us countless times last season and this is his first really bad game that I can remember.

Things a keeper must do
-Communication
-Have strong hands, preferably catch the ball on shot,or parry to safe areas
- command the area of high balls, absolute must for this is communication
-Distribution
-goal kicks
- have a decent throw.
Leno needs to be better in at least three areas I have outlined

His distribution, goal kills and throes are all fine though. Communication certainly should be improved.
