Arsenal v Liverpool review – Dodgy offside denies Gunners win

There is no way that even the most ardent Arsenal fan can say that we were the better team in the first half but we stil should have been ahead at halftime, because while Liverpool had the better play and the better chances, Ramsey DID score a great goal after a peach of a pass from Cazorla. Liverpool must love the words offside right now because they are having all the bad decisions in their favour.

Apart from that, though, our play was terrible. I can understand the nerves at the back with Gabriel and Chambers being thrown in due to Kos and Mert being out, but you would think that the rest of the team would have made a real effort to dominate the game and protect them.

As it was we kept giving the ball away and inviting Liverpool to attack. Even right outside the box we pansied about and got caught on the ball. Thank god the real Petr Cech turned up this week because he saved us no end of times, including a point blank save from Bentek who could surely only score. Coquelin also stood up and did his best to stop the waves of pressure and made some crucial tackles.

Wenger must have given them a rocket because we looked a different team after the break and instantly took the game to the visitors. The passing was better but so was the penetration and we created a host of chances, without getting that crucial breakthrough.

Giroud had been well involved but was replaced by Walcott with 20 minites to go. Oxlade-Chamberlain came on soon after as well for Coquelin as Wenger smelled victory and he nearly provided it with a burst and ball from the right and if Skrtel had not put it just wide then Walcott was ready to tap in.

But we could not make our second half dominance count, so at the end of the day you have to say that Arsenal were denied all three points by a poor offside decision on Ramsey.

    f*ck why always ramsey at wing. not effective proven + to many speculation shoot, cazorla was so lazy!! didnt do much contribution to the team ,coq trying to be pirlo but total fail , attack created from wing just so awful ,no penetration from sanchez just give it to ozil/ramsey , giroud lack of communication / lack of movement, walcott wasnt born to be a cf.
    instead ramsey why wenger didnt take walcott/ ox since begining.!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    imo only ozil(attack,pass)/gabriel(deff,blocking)/cech(great saving) contribute better than the other. in this game arsenal play like they didnt have winning spirit&mentality. they play just like whatever it win or lose i dont care since i still got payed. omg

    football now its just boring,big team nowaday play parking bus just like liverpool in this match + new offside rule = bunch of absolute boredom.

    sell özil,
    put cazorla on his cam position,
    play ramsey alongside coq
    walcott (or sanchez) and ox on the wings
    sanchez (or walcott) as striker

    that is the best what we have and we should go with it.
    not saying ox is perfect on lw, but its the best we can do with our current squad.
    next match giroud is in the starting lineup i will turn off the tv immediately
