Arsenal match thread - Sunday 28th at 12.00

Recommended Posts

Zonal marking doesn’t work, not from our point of view. No Idea why we persist with it. 
 

But what we can’t change, we look tired and Vardy has been holding his groin for most of the game. Looks like a few out aren’t fully fit.

Be careful what you say in your fist paragraph i got slated on Thursday has some said I lived in a fantasy world

If the money isn’t there or players aren’t available then yeah, you live in a fantasy world. We are in the middle of a pandemic and the club is losing masses of money ffs.

It would be nice if you could rely on us to score rather than concede a cheap set piece goal or two over the season. The one we conceded today was laughably bad. A simple ball into the box with no great place and Luiz left with a free header. 

Very poor defending not to have anyone just guarding the middle of the box.

An overreaction yes, but he's been poor. The foul earlier outside the box after his poor pass, then that brain dead handball. He's looking tired mentally as well as physically, like many of our players are.

Let's get some round pegs round holes as a basic. Ricardo is not a winger, he's poor there and has been any time it's been experimented with him. He's neither the guile, pace, tricks or touch. His pace is not from an explosive burst, its from reading the game well from a deep position that he has more time in. Castagne likewise. Get back to basics and stop trying to be clever.

Thomas is the problem dives in all the time lucky not to be off already, if he is not changed at half time we will be down to 10 men very soon.

Let’s be honest, we are down to the bare bones in terms of players. VR obviously not fit and we have no game changers on the bench. Compound that with BR’s decision (and it must be his instructions) to sit back at one nil instead of going for the second against a poor Arsenal defence has resulted in the situation we’re now in.

We’re only really missing Maddison. Our forward options are so poor.

 

It will smash us hard if we fall out of top 4 this year!

Fan favourites Perez and Praet are also missing

like against Villa 2nd half

 

Villa second half is exactly the template for how we should have approached this game. 

 

Get a strong, two goal lead in a commanding first half and then conserve energy with a cruise control approach to the second. 

 

I didn't think we looked enormously fatigued in the second half against Villa, I just thought we looked like we were going through the motions.

Look at the two benches as well. This could quite possibly get worse rather than better.

 

We're going to have to hope Arsenal drop a clanger. We've looked incredibly laboured again and look a bit out of steam. We've got very little on the bench to turn this and Arsenal have some of their best players.

 

Really a bit disappointed in us. I think the schedule's finally caught up with us.

We did not even do zonal marking. We had no one in the middle of the box.

Yeah it’s almost like Brendan has them believing they are better than they are, then a poor defeat leaves the players questioning either him or theirselves.

Last seasons capitulation can’t have been down to his Tactics and game plans, as he has proved on long runs that he often gets it right.

His gameplan today though. As was his game plan in the europa. He gets it wrong alot too and is too stubbon to change things early. We have to get on the front foot in this game. Have to. As it stands we've gifted a pretty poor arsenal side 3 points.
