Arsenal v Swansea review – Garbage Gunners get stuffed

Well that was about as bad as we could have feared from Arsenal, as we lost to a Swansea City side weakened by a lot of changes as they planned for their next game which is a relegation six pointer with Norwich. Getting nothing from this must win game is surely the final nail in the coffin of our fading title hopes.

And it could and should have been so much better after Joel Campbell had put Arsenal in the lead with a fantastic finish early on in the first half. But we simply failed to capitalise and looked nervous all over the pitch. The passing was slow and we blew the chances that were created.

It was our mistake in midfield which led to their first goal before the break and then we were at fault again for the winner in the second half. Wenger made some changes and we huffed and puffed but even though we hit the woodwork a couple of times and had a late shout for a penalty, we just were not good enough.

Premier League title, you are having a laugh, except there is nothing funny about Arsenal for us fans at the minute. At least Tottenham lost at West Ham because now we can only hope that the spuds do not pip Leicester to the title. We certainly won’t.

      Wenger is complete rubbish therefore he must have his contract renewed

            Wenger is on the job.
            By the first of April, we will be in 6th place.
            Man United attack with more venom and are more direct than Arsenal
            Man city will still go on a run and brush aside the small teams.

        I just got in from school and anxiously went on Twitter hoping to see some good news, only to see Swansea who got whipped by almost every other team beating Arsenal at home. I didn’t watch the game so I don’t know what went wrong. What I do know though is that I’m tired of this bs.

        We never seem to take any opportunity given to us whenever a team above us drop points. Like it or not, Spurs are the favorite to win the league.

    How Arsene will still be manager in 2016/17 is for me insanity. How Sanchez, Mertesacker and Ramsey are still going to be regulars the following matches is also insane. How Özil haven’t openly gone out and said he wants to leave is a pleasant surprise.

    There are no other teams that can dominate like Arsenal do, yet they have a spell of 10 minutes where they don’t dominate and they concede…
    In one of my post’ I said I won’t be disappointed if arsenal draws or loses this game simply because we have been so poor @ home. I’m not disappointed @ all. We are officially bottlers’…..We just don’t capitalise. We all know Tottenham face a tougher opposition away. We have Swansea @ home and couldn’t show intent of champions. Infact’, We don’t deserve to win the league. We don’t deserve to be champions. And Wenger subs Campbell. Our best player in the game. Oh Lawddddddddd.

    Where are the Arsene lovers? Don’t worry, we will still win the title. We will win next season. He will sign a two year contract and will win treble in the two years, including UCL, to cap a “wonderful” reign at the Club. He will leave as an hero for you.

    We played without purpose. Swansea wanted it more, simple.

      What happened is manu closed the gap to 4 points. Leicester went ahead with one point. Tottenham are going to be 6 points ahead on sunday, manu and manc 1 behind, and Wenger is going to say “We must bounce back”, only to be obliterated at Camp Nou, just to push the players’ self confidence further down the sh!thole. We’ll lose against Hull too, mark my words.

          Do you a have a vision of our future Dave? Because you really paddle against stream swift river here. Mathematically the title is going no where yet, but the way we’re playing (specially the finishing) is simply awful. What made me even frustrated, this team is near complete. How long do you need to recover the right form? In summer tour? My feeling is we’ll be able to crawl back, but it’ll be too late to catch the title. I’m lucky not living in London, because there’s chance ( BIG time one), of Spuds celebrate their first “St Arse Day (or whatever the name is)” after twenty years.

    What a point for Leicester City. That is most likely the most valuable point of the season.
    Once Spurs bury us on Sunday it will irrevocably be a Spurs vs Leicester City title showdown.

    If anyone told me this at the start of the season, I would have been most likely to believe in a zombie apocalypse.
    We don’t deserve the title and we rightfully should not win it.

    Quick notes on arsemal team
    1-paulista is not good as i though
    2-coquelin is essential in arsenal midfield to give stability but he can’t hold the ball in his feet or give the right pass in the right time so we can’t dominate teams anymore especially with santi absence
    3-ramsey=horrible, just a headless chicken running everywhere
    4-ozil could have easily 30+ assists by now
    5- Olivier Giroud the handsom french guy shouldn’t ever be a big team first choice striker
    6- where are the 4 world class strikers that wenger said we had i didn’t se anyone of the yet

    I can’t believe that this team can’t even pass their way out of their own half. This just shows how bad we miss Santi Cazorla, Ramsey is a terrible midfielder. He can’t bring the ball froward all he does is slow down the attack. He can’t help Coq in winning the ball back either. So WHY the F**** is he starting every game? on what merit?

    First we lose to a Man utd who fielded Carrick and Blind in the CB positions…lol, how appalling is that?
    Then to top it off…we come home to play a Swansea side that apparently made 6 changes to their starting 11 and didn’t have their manager on the pitch and we lose.
    If tomorrow, Arsene Wenger is still the manager then he is a spineless coward. He should look at himself in the mirror and know when to call quits. Its over…go home.

    Last time a team other than arsenal, chelsea, manc or manu won the PL was back in 1994/5 when blackburn rovers won it. With manc, manu and chelsea having poor seasons we should be walking the PL. However, every opportunity we have is squandered. Looks like it is going to be the usual scrap for fourth place. So easily avoided, some more grit and determination in very winnable games and we would be leading the PL.

    I feel devastated after that match, if it had come at a good part of the season you’d rub it off as terrible luck but right now the team needed to do so much more. For the first 30 minutes we were actually very good and dominated the game to the extreme…shame that 1 lucky goal totally broke the team.

    As a very frustrating note – both goals are directly down to AWFUL officiating. The first is a clear foul, no question. Swansea got lucky from this by the ball dropping into the hole and Mertesacker tucked in narrow leaving the space. Dreadful defending, dreadful refereeing.

    The second goal is offside. Williams is NEVER onside. I dunno what the linesman is watching, it certainly wasn’t the game. Hard to defend with a ball that good, but shouldn’t have stood.

    While I wouldn’t say we were cheated, it’s one more example that when your luck is bad, you really do have some terrible luck. On another day the ref does his job and we win 1-0 or better yet, we continue with our momentum we had and score further goals instead of letting Swansea back into it from a poor decision.

    We could not buy a win right now.

      I wouldn’t say that we have been unlucky, especially when all the big boys have been dropping points throughout the season!
      Only a specialist in failure could balls up a helping hand from destiny!…. I have lost count of the amount of missed opportunities!
      Once again, our rivals dropped points and once again we failed to beat a weakened team!
      It’s not fair on the fan’s, who have no control over the sickening effects these results give them.

      We don’t even deserve to finish in the top 5, let alone winning the league! … We deserve to finish 6th so that our muppet’s would have to play qualifiers to get into the Europa league!
      Hull City will knock these plums out of the Fa cup as well…

      Very disappointed but not at all surprised,
      Big Big changes need to happen in the summer!
      I would rather give time to a new manager to bed in,
      Rather than waste anymore time on this delusional politician of a manager! .. Wenger you are the weakest link… Get out!

    Does Wenger really know what he’s doing? Against Barca le coq was our best player out there and he subbed him, against Man U welbeck was the better player but he subbed him and instead of him to put Campbell, he decided to put Iwobi, today again Campbel was our best player but he subbed him, why didn’t him remove Sanchez who’s been playing badly. Now the reason why our ball distribution in middle is so dull is because the defenders keep looking for reason to give him but he’s no where to be found bcs he’s busy staying up top. Is he staying there as a striker or a box to box midfielder? Ramsey is our problem in the middle but Wenger won’t do a thing about it bcs he is too weak and tactically useless. Sorry Admin I used that foul word but He(wenger) deserves the name. Am gonna be sad for the rest of the week. Cnt wait for spuds game so dat I can’t atleast voice out my disappointment again. Gudnite guys. This is really a sad one for every gooner out there except the coach, players and the board.

    The person who should go is Joel. There is no way that his treatment at the hands of AW today was fair and the fans showed it by booing AW when he took JC off. The whole thing is starting to verge on discrimination.

At the end of the season we will be talking about all these missed opportunities like the one today. Even if we finish strong like every year it is very unlikely to win the league. It’s like almost every team has figured out how to cope with Wenger’s clueless tactics and that we don’t have the passion and the b@lls needed to seal this through… High-time for a big change I say!

    Wenger substituted Joel because he thought Joel was tired having not played many games.

    Meanwhile the player out of form, without a goal in who knows ho many games, can’t be dropped, as if he is never tired.

    I said it before the Barcelona game. You start with Sanchez, Welbeck and Joel as the front three. That gives Ozil the best options and the hardest working three players. Okay Welbeck came back from injury, but can he not play atleast 45-60 minutes a game?

      HA,

      Sadly Arsenal has far to many out of form players that Wenger refuses to drop or is unwilling to cut the ties with. Ramsey, Ox, BFG, Theo and OG should NEVER be in the first team for the Gunners but Le Prof has been consistently and erroneously loyal to these players over the past few years and sans a few FA Cup trophies Arsenals performance has been reflective of there contributions.

      I hate to play the what if game but if the board and Arsene were serious about being a big club and winning EPL and Champions League silverware would any of the above players see anything but Cup competitions and rotational spot appearances against lesser opposition’s?

      Suarez
      Campbell…Ozil….Sanchez
      Krychowiak…Santi
      Nacho…Vertonghen…Boss…Hector
      Cech

      Less than a 100 million spent and all possible but Wenger decided on Giroud, Gabriel and Le Coq.

    It seems that the less Arsenal game time I watch nowadays the better for my health, cause I really don’t have the nerves anymore to watch this team for whole 90 minutes. I mean I’m only 27 and after our matches I feel either disappointed, either angry, either like having a heart attack after a narrow win.. I mean being an Arsenal fan these days is a real pain in the as$.. Thanks, but for a while no more live Arsenal games for me, except maybe the one against Barcelona who is certainly gonna teach us a lesson or two… Wenger and CEO get the f** out of our beloved club!!!

    We are just helping Leicester. They are a fantastic club and totally deserving but we aren’t showing any resistance at all. When Leicester drop points, we drop all 3 points
    This is worse than when we sold RVP to United.

    This could be the first time we finish ahead of City, Liverpool, United and Chelsea and finish 3rd or 2nd

    Even if we finish 2nd to Leicester or Spuds it will be the worst year ever for us. Kroenke will be happy with a top 4 finish

    Next season Guardiola will get a LOT of talent. He has contacts and great reputation

    We will most probably keep Wenger and could lose Ozil and Alexis.

    Utter Disgrace

    Kroenke and Wenger have us by our balls. They know we won’t abandon Arsenal or protest and as long as we stay in top 4 they can do anything they want.

    Anyway, I’m not expecting Leicester to drop points next week.

    We are fighting Spuds and City for 2 nd place

    Ozil looks like he is already a goner. His chances created per match has gone down dramatically. If we don’t win the league most likely he will go.

    Sanchez can’t even get a proper shot in a game anymore, he keeps cutting into the right too many times. He is trying to force the issue himself but most of the times fails. Great understanding with Joel there.

    Joel upfront?

    am sorry to say this but the players have to take some blames as well.. wtf does ramsey do in a game day? absolute rubbish and walcot was on for abt 20 mins but the ball boys touched the ball more than he did pathetic..i feel no one in our team can own up to the responsibility.. look at chelsea you cant sack all the players what did they do ? the sacked mou for the betterment of the team ..we have too many average players and i thought we had mf but now i know we have zero..how can a whole team be out of form?it all comes down to one thing the tactics wrnger is using is outdated . at the turn of the year all he needed was play ugly and win but we play expansive football that we forget how to defend..same mistake for the past three games lack of focus..
    am sorry but gabriel is not the answer the guy cant pass a simple ball to save his life..what has happened to coq since he came back ..and wenger wont kill me to think he subed campbell off shows you how clueless he is..

    The annoying thing about Wenger’s Arsenal is that WE DON’T SHOOT

    We have just 5 mins left to play in the match and we are still looking for Giroud to do hold-up play and fancy one-twos around the 18-yard area.

    Leciester City got their first goal yesterday after taking a shot that defected off a plyer from West Brom into the back of the net.

    We need a coach that can be more direct with the team especially when we need to win ugly.

    We need a coach who does not take off his best player on the night and moan and groan at the 4th officials after losing.

    A defeat to Spurs will make it 4 defeats in 4 matches for Arsenal if it happens (Still hope it does not)

    Wenger is the only employee that can be sure he would keep his job no matter what performance he gives.

    Time to go back to basics. Solid in defence, Coq to just sit, close triangle with back 2 CBs.
    Arsenal have players who do better with space which Arsenal can achieve without ball procession. Trying to push the game and chase is against what we have done this season in all games in which we have gone on and won.

    Right now we look like a desperate boy trying too hard to get the girl. Be mature, understand how to play 90minutes and out smart the opponents like we did against Bayern and City .

All very well buying a couple of marquee signings such as Wenger and satchel but when their former drops we see a team is only as good as it’s weak links and this squad has a few! Oh how we miss canola! This side needs a shake up starting with the manager. Read what Paul Ince said on the BBC sport pages he’s right our players have become too tolerant to wengers methods.

    Now I believe Wenger has completely lost it. Why on earth he removed Joel Campbell, our best player on the day is beyond me. Agreed Sanchez is struggling for form but he is still a threat to the opposition. And did u see how Swansea came out and made it really hard for us to get out of our own half after those two substitutions? That was for me the turning point in the game. AW is certainly a confused man right now…….

    Arsenal was unlucky, hitting the Swansea’s bar twice. But you can never stop playing asking the referee to whistle a fault! It seems that Arsenal players, with the exception of Coquelin, Alexis and Campbell lack fighting spirit, lack determination. Arsenal could never lose for that Man Utd and for Swansea! At least, Arsenal players are very complacent; they saw an injury hit Man Utd and thought that Arsenal would win when they want, and thought the same against Swansea, especially when we were one nil and stopped pressing. The lack of fighting spirit, the lack of blood, makes me very angry. It’s obvious that Alexis is passing his worst moment at Arsenal, Ramsey is a lost man at the middle of the park (I think he is one of the worst in many games) and Ozil, I think is the one that lacks fighting spirit the most. Wenger must stop blaming the referees and saying that the players played well, were unlucky etcetera, and start putting the responsibility on the shoulders of his players, that are no children and have to grow up and fight like men.
