Well I don’t think any Arsenal fans will be complaining about Unai Emery’s first ever game in charge of our club as the Gunners ran out 8-0 winners in the friendly at Boreham Wood.
Arsenal limped over the line to win their final match under the guidance of Arsene Wenger today, with Huddersfield refusing to roll over despite having little to play for.
Arsenal played an awesome dominant game and actually turned that into goals as well as no defensive errors. Where have we been going wrong all year? Looking forward to winning an away game at last. This record can’t go on much longer..
Anyway here are my ratings…..
We all thought that Burnley would be going all out for the points yesterday seeing as they were just three points below us before the start, and were fighting for a Europa League place, but they made Arsenal look like the superstars they should be and let the Gunners walk all over them.
Arsenal demolished Burnley today to cement their place inside the top six, and also to give Arsene Wenger the perfect departure.
The Gunners have endured an up-and-down campaign this season, and after elimination from the Europa League on Thursday, we needed the last home match to give the Frenchman one last happy memory, and our performance was outstanding.
Yet again we have the story of our season. Arsenal had the lions share of possession against Atletico, and we had countless chances to get into scoring positions, but ended up with just 7 shots on goal and only ONE of them was on target. I suppose it makes a chance from our usual stats that show we have 20 plus shots and still don’t score!
The cowards shaming the shirt should leave with Wenger. by Konstantin Mitov
Well, what else could’ve happened really? We played chicken and failed miserably. This was an embarrassment. Wenger may be going, but most of these players should be heading through the exit door with him.
This was a game that Arsenal fully expected to lose but our makeshift side played extremely well under the circumstances. Man United had twice as many chances as us and 9 corners to our fat zero so it is no wonder that the Arsenal defenders were under the spotlight. And they came out looking good – with the brand new pairing of Mavropanos and Chambers doing a great job. Our defence of the future?
