Pathetic Arsenal again, but not surprising at all. by Konstantin Mitov
Well, if Arsene doesn’t make it difficult out of nothing it just wouldn’t be him. I am so hoping, Wenger and Wilshere are out of this football club this summer.
I was happy to see Wilshere subbed, because he was shocking for like the 10th game in a row and I do not understand what the hype around him is. He is an average footballer at best and is a shame for the number 10 shirt. Jack probably lost the ball more times than anybody on the pitch.
Moving on, I will only make one comment on the defence, and that is that all four at the back plus the keeper need to be replaced. I like Monreal, but his age is a problem and he was peppered on the night. The rest need little mentioning.
You can see the difference in intensity between the Champions League and the Europa. After watching Juventus put the most astonishing comeback I’ve ever seen AWAY to the Champions of Europe, before being robbed by the incapability of an English ref to make a proper decision, watching our game in Russia felt like a third tier game and so it was.
The fact that we can limp to the semis with performances like this is shocking. Any of the teams left in the quarter finals of the Champions League would’ve eaten us for breakfast with such performances. It literally took us one piece of good football between Elneny and Welbeck to kill off the game.
Those two were the only players who played with some desire, not just barely running around and it was a stunning goal. It was interesting to see Lacazette subbed, but honestly he had little impact on the game.
As little as anybody else to be honest, but Iwobi didn’t make much of his chance 1:1 either. What’s happening to him? There is talent there and he gets into positions and then it’s like he’s scared to shoot. The lack of confidence is clear and there is only one person to blame for this.
Arsene Wenger has lost everything from the fans to the dressing room. It would be the most irrational and illogical decision to keep him for another year, yet it’s the most likely thing to happen.
If the board dare to come out in his defense yet another time, the Emirates will be completely empty next season. The problem here is not this game in particular, it’s the fact that every away game in the league has been a massive struggle, we’re sixth, we don’t know the future of a bunch of key players and we’re playing some of the worst football in our entire history, which still has over 100 years before a deluded Frenchman took over.
We’re going to the semis and Atletico will finally be a decent opposition and looking at our play, it’ll be very difficult. I just don’t understand what are saving ourselves for? We’re trying to catch Chelsea or something? It matters little if we are 5th or sixth, but winning the Europa actually means going back to the elite, although on that performance I really don’t wanna see us play the likes of Bayern, cause we’d lose 5:1 again. Wenger out people. We’re hardly beating Atletico over 2 legs….
