Should have started Xhaka instead of Coq. We have absolutely no one who can play out from the back...aaand just as I'm typing this it's 1-4

Even a casual spectator of the City game last weekend would have thought that to be logical. Of course, the old fart had to mess that up as well.

How is this guy a perfectionist? He has that image doesn't he. Well a perfectionist would be obsessed with fixing things to be perfect. This guy is just satisfied with things without any fixes. Year after year.

1 out of last 7 opening day fixtures won. Says about everything about Wanker's preseason preparations.

*bleep* off.

I told myself that I would watch every game this season (I saw about 2/3 of the games last season) but after the first game I feel absolutely disgusted because of the similar glaring mistakes from last season which surely won't be adressed and corrected again.

I am contemplating going back to not watching games. Life is easier then. There is still the pain when you watch the results, but at least you spare your health for 90 odd minutes.

There is absolutely nothing to feel good about regarding this team.

Going into the first game of the season with no CBs. Not signing a striker YET ****ING AGAIN.

The lack of preparation for the start of the season is disgraceful. Who cares if the window isn't closed yet. 3 points is 3 points. A team with ambition actually interested in winning the league would have done more to be ready. But us? Nah. What are they waiting for? Last minute deals to save a few pounds? **** off.

It's painfully obvious what would help this team or what it needs to anyone with even passing knowledge of the game. Yet the ownership with all their resources can't be bothered.

Who cares if we buy some ligue 1 french striker who can't even get into the national team. Even with the absurd TV money, We are getting outspent by teams in Serie ****ing A.

We will not achieve anything this year. We aren't good enough to compete or play with our competition. We will get routed in "big" games by Chelsea, the Manchester clubs, probably screw up Spuds

Last season was the year we should have won a league title, and we lost it to Leicester ****ing City.

The big clubs will likely never all collectively be shit like that at the same time ever again. If we couldn't win it last year, when the **** are we ever going to win it. If we couldn't finish 1st last year, we 100% have no chance of it this year. Especially after not buying ANYONE of note.

Maybe we'll have a good run of form to save face and some embarrassment. Finish top four.

But big ****ing whoop. Who cares. I don't care about playing in the CL just so the ownership can pocket the money and not reinvest in the team. I don't care about playing in a tournament we have less than zero percent chance of winning. As of now it's just a distraction from the league. What good does getting embarrassed by Barcelona and Bayern every ****ing year do for us exactly. Other than waste our ****ing time.

Sad thing is, new signings won't change this. They might help add some depth but ultimately we play with a highly flawed system that Liverpool picked apart in the second half when they were in the mood.

The second goal showed this. Midfield non-existent, Coutinho picks up the ball in dangerous space, they get down our sides and nobody picks up the late run. We have a weak back four, so where's the protection?

Then we shat ourselves. Their third goal was brilliant again, but we were pulled apart so easily. Where's the determination to not concede again? Where's the compactness in the shape? It doesn't exist. Watch United earlier or Chelsea tomorrow and see how compact they are/will be.

Our attack was shocking. Moreno embarrassing himself is one thing, but we rarely built-up through the middle of the pitch and created very little. Even at 4-3 and we're "fighting" back we barely kept the ball.

Oh, the usual excuses will come out from the club. The injuries and the Euros etc etc. As if we're the only team effected by these things. Every other team just gets on with it and prepares as best it can (look at Hull yesterday ffs) but we go into games making shit up as we go along. It's no coincedence that we keep getting poor results when the season starts.

This season's going to be shit. Not knee-jerking here but nothing's changed from last year or the year before or the year before and so on. Club like ours shouldn't be so under-prepared and so behind the rest but we are.

Don't forget, your best player didn't play today, Xhaka will start soon, there's Koscielny coming back and Mustafi coming in.
You'll probably add another attacking player.

You'll be fine, as every season.

A chunk of those midfield problems would have been solved by playing Xhaka instead of Coquelin. The night and day difference was painfully obvious against City.

We payed a shitload for a deep midfielder to fit our style of play, a Coqzorla rolled into one, and then we put him on the bench.

One man's decision.

Playing Sanchez upfront was hilarious. It works in preseason. Has NEVER worked in actual season.

It is not about the personnel. This is about the man in charge. This man, who made me fall so deeply in love with this club and this game, is now making me want to gouge my eyes out. And do many other rather masochistic things that I would rather not type out.

And our alternative was...? Theo *bleep* Walcott?

Yeah. Let's buy a Sanogo now.

I am. I am so done with Wenger. There is nothing to be excited or positive about with him still in charge. We will continue to make the same mistakes.

He is still good enough to pull the team together just enough to save himself but cannot keep it together for an entire season.

What really ticks me right now is that we wait for the last 10-15 days of the transfer window. THE *bleep* SEASON STARTS BEFORE THAT and the wise old man doesn't realize how much those points cost us.

very little positive out of this game even in the first half we weren't playing well enough. Xhaka should have been on earlier for Coquelin in the second half. We had no ball retention whatsoever, it just kept coming back at the centre halves. Defensively the lack of experience showed,some poor decision making, some poor marking. Tough day for the centre halves, it will only get tougher No

Can't be worse. When 3 of your backline are still in their nappies, why not play a couple more up front in Akpom and Iwobi.
