Swansea v Arsenal review – Defeat after leading tells the same old story

Arsenal were given a boost for this Premier League away game with Swansea City before the game had even kicked off. Because the home side had lost one of their first choice centre backs as well as both of their pacy wide men Nathan Dyer and Wayne Routledge, while the Gunners had just one change from Tuesday and that was Flamini for the injured Arteta.

Even so, Arsene Wenger set his Arsenal side up to be a bit cautious and beware of the quick counter attack. So both teams were fairly tentative at the start, passing the ball around well without creating too much. But it was the home side that started to come out of their shells aftyer about 20 minutes and they started to cause us problems, winning a string of corners and getting crosses in from the flanks.

SWansea wanted a penalty after Chambers was a bit clumsy banging in to the back of Bony but it would have been harsh. But Arsenal did respond and started to get threaten more ourselves, with Ramsey’s fierce shot being deflected a bit unluckily. But the danger of getting fowards was clear as we nearly conceded on the counter with both full backs caught up the pitch.

Welbeck nearly broke the deadlock just before the break after some intricate play around the box by Cazorla and Alexis but former Gunner Fabianski was well positioned to block his shot. And then Ramsey put a volley just wide. And Mertesacker had a free header from a corner on the stroke of halftime but was well off target.

Apart from that though, we had not created much and for once had enjoyed less possession. Maybe playing Alexis and Welbeck almost as a front two left us a bit light in midfield. But we started the second half as we had ended the first, a bit more on the front foot.

But with an hour gone and still no goal, the onus was on the Gunners. With rain sheeting down, Cazorla’s low drive was a good idea but again Fabianski was up to it. And the weather made a slick passing game harder and direct running more dangerous. So it seemed to be crying out for Walcott.

It was our pace that got the opener, Chamberlain picking the ball up and driving foward, finding Welbeck on the right who showed great awareness to cut back and find Alexis who smashed it in. Great goal. But Swansea made a good fightback and pressed forward and pressed us hard, forcing a few mistakes in possession.

One of those led to the breakaway that Gibbs stopped with a foul and from the free kick Sigurdsson produced a stunning equaliser with 15 minutes to go. THere is not much you can do when someone scores a cracker but it was us giving the ball away that put us in that position.

And just as we have done all season, Arsenal’s defence went missing and allowed Montero to cross and Gomis to score again from a free header. On came Walcott and Wilshere with 10 minutes left, but was it too late? Swansea frustrated us and apart from Walcott failing to control a great ball from Wilshere we did not look like scoring.

It was our season so far in miniature and if Wenger does not get us defending better, there are plenty more disappointing days like this ahead.

    Look at the Akb’s again people, look at them how they speak. Instead of admiting that we have lost, and admiting that Chambers got murdered on the rb poz, that we were doing lncorrect and late subs, and that we are using wrong players at wrong poz, the akb’s come up with things like:

    Nevermind that we have lost, we have injuries. Or, the rain was to heavy, or Wenger had diarrhea last night and could not think straight in this match. This and that.

    In Arsene we trust simple makes no sense anymore. Even the most loyal Akb zombie, should start to doubt him at this point. If not, go F. your selfs.

    1. 5th Gen Gooner says:

      Don’t forget the FA no doubt hired a rain-dancer before the game who was paid for by the press. You gotta love the AKB/BABA crew, they must wear Zaphod Beeblebrox glasses. Now where can I get a pair of those? LOL!

    Poor alexis i feel so sorry for him, giving it your all only to be disappointed by your teamates!

  3. fred cowardly says:

    These very late substitutions is ridiculous. He likes to substitute when he is desperate. If certain players aren’t performing in the first half you substitute them early in the second half or you make tactical changes early.

    @untold
    Am I the only one who doesn’t think that putting our heads in the sand is a solution? Oh no, there’s tens of thousands of supporters who inject cash into this club who think the same way. Come on let’s rally around the team and put pressure on the board to find a new leader that can actually support the team rather than leave them floundering on the pitch with no support!

  6. Abhirup says:

    Today is Remembrance Day and AW is like Douglas Haig-The Donkey. Go over the top be slaughtered …go over the top be slaughtered… go over the top be slaughtered. Same team same result same team same result…why can’t Rosikcy play instead of Carzola? Who is shit. Why does Callum have to play at RB and get skinned by Montero and get no protection? Why Monreal at CB? Why? YAYA with Podosky on the bench???. Same starting 11 which has been shit for last fortnight? Is this AW crazy what? Why doesnt he just leave? Will we need a Rommel just to drive this hard nosed French Fool into the sea?

  7. Thando ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    @ny gunner you are one of the best AKB around here and it looks like wenger can use you in his backline,because you defend better than monreal and per

    Wenger is a joke.

    With Wenger in charge we are all going through torture..
    Psychological torture.. He and kroenke have turned us from invincible premier league juggernauts and champions league finalists – to the laughing stock of Europe and fast becoming cannon fodder for the rest of the premiership!!

    As a betting man.. There’s money to be made when we play..we are as predictable .. Boring, useless and average as the spuds!!

    1. Andrew AFC ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

      @phil-thompsons-nose
      How are you. There is only one difference between us and the spuds. We are not 5 points away from the drop zone. Now thats got to make someone smile 🙂

      1. phil-thompsons-nose ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

        Andrew
        Just remind me how many points we are above the spuds..?
        And above the relegation zone..?? Ha ha
        Only winding you up.. But agree it could be worse… The spuds predicament is the only thing keeping me sane at the moment..

  12. kaybiks ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    Past glory does not count in the game of football anymore. AW seems to be living in the past and the past is gone. The line up to start with was horrible. Welback needs to rest and read game from the bench. Give the likes of cambel, Podoski, Sanogo some time. Flamini for me is finished. Give others time to prove something.

  13. Thando ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    Our next games are harder than the ones we have played and you all know what we gonna get.all we are asking for is bellerin to play rb and chambers cb.per is sh*t that does not even deserve bench

  14. 5th Gen Gooner says:

    Think Arsene relies way too much on remembrance. Bring back George Graham, at least he knew how to defend a lead and won 2 trophies Arsene hasn’t in his 18 years – League cup and a European cup albeit the Cup Winners!

    All I want for Xmas is a world class centre back and a world class defensive midfielder.

    P.s please arsene wenger to pull his head out of his arse

  18. tselby1 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    Blame Wenger for;

    1) Tactics – always leaving subs till 80mins when his forced in to it despite the need for changes. Chambers was getting roasted all game and needed to bring bellerin on to counter that. Ramsey not effective all game and looking tired at 70mins plus could of done with fresh legs hence the open space in the middle for barrow to run in to which led to Gibbs giving the free kick away for the 1st goal!!

    2) Not buying a solid cb – Monreal is not a cb and showed again today easily beaten in the air for the winner. Surely the bigger chambers would of dealt with that better and put in bellerin at rb!! Also the slow BFG causing us problems every game with his lack of pace. Even his aerial ability which should be his strength he can’t do right getting beat in midweek for the equaliser and beat in the air for the goal at hull!!

    Only have 1 decent cb Kos and he is out for a few more weeks!

    It was clear during transfer window we needed 1 or 2 cb and we got………0!!

  19. Ks-Gunner ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    At this moment, i only feel proud when i see Jack Wilsher and Sanchez play. The fact that i see them fight with all they have makes me feel joy to watch them.

    The current Arsenal team, is a team full of Pu$ssys, i am not only Angry at the manager, but also at our players.

    Manures 4th choice Striker becomes our main Striker. WTF
    Monreal players Cb. Wtf.
    Cahmbers plays Rb. Wtf
    An Aged Mertesacker who is the slowest defender i have seen players first team football and that in a leauge where every god damned team has speed stars.
    A Sunny boy in Ramseys who things that he is better then Modric or Bale. Facking selifsh big head.
    Where is Ospina good damned.
    What for do we have Bould around.

    Why does our manager earn 8m a year when is an inferiour manager to others. A 4th place manager should never have that kind of money and power in the team.

    Without Dain and our former legends who played in a free role, who managed moral and form them selfs in the team, Wenger would be a nothing.

    Arsene and board out. Usmanov and whatever manager in.

    1. 5th Gen Gooner says:

      Zonal marking has never worked for us but Bould still goes for it. Why don’t we just play the simple ‘tall guy marks the tall guy’ and ‘keep tabs on the quick bu@@ers’?

      1. Ks-Gunner ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

        Its impossible. Our players are to weak in winning the ball back that we are forced to play this way. For example Kos can beat anyone, but everyone can beat Merti.

  20. vinie2000 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    For crying loud some pundits are right,most fans are right.our decline has been the negligence from the manager to stop being stubborn and get an imposing DM who give us solidity and confidence lost.the cbs are always exposed and lack of physical presence that other teams beat us in midfield.5 years now and still we cant get one just playing players out of position or sticking to players who have not passed the grade such us jack,ramesy,arteta so get some money and do us a favor..get khedira or carvallho but buy a dm please otherwise you must go.

  21. Mick The Gooner ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    Today was very eye opening. Not so much as if it was the first time we’d failed in this way, but because it wasn’t. It’s been the same story all season but there has been no change. Today was a chance to set the record straight and send a message. It didn’t happen. It’s more than just a managerial failure, it’s a fundamental failure by the team as well.

    What’s really strange is that it’s not just Arsenal suffering this. Manchester City also seem to be suffering from the same thing, as are Liverpool. Just look at their performances recently, their players are out of form, their managers make very strange decisions and results haven’t gone their way.. At this rate, Chelsea will win the league quicker than Bayern.

  22. Justsoccerfan ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    At this moment is better don’t watch arsenal game but to wait for another two weeks than got game that is killing me.

  23. AlmiR ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    “We were not too much in trouble”, he told Sky Sports.

    “We had the best chances.

    “It’s a place where it is always tight. It was a very tactical game.

    “Just when we were 1-0 up we lacked some spark and killer instinct to take the game.

    “I worry that we concede the goals, yes”, Wenger concluded.
    there you go, boss explained perfectly LOL

    1. juhislihis ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

      One of many faults of Wenger:

      Never takes the blame himself. Either it’s the referees, bad luck or the pitch.

    2. IceBergKamp10 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

      Wenger on Alexis…
      He scored but I think he didn’t have the best games today.

  24. nyc ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    Now suddenly our next opponents manutd are looking like they are going to beat the hell out of us. Compare swansea’s players to united’s. Falcao rvp Rooney Mata di Maria will milk mertesacker and monreal.

  25. chenrob2 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    Clueless, Arsene Wenger is clueless. So pitiful I can’t even laugh. Against Anderlecht we were terrorized down our right side and Wenger goes and put Chambers in that situation again. Montero had his ticket from minute 1 and Wenger made no move to change it up. Montero just simply went down the outside of Chambers and then crossed the ball, can’t help but think that a speedier Bellerin would have feared better, with Chambers as CB or CDM. If everyone can see it I wonder what Wenger is looking at.

  26. truegunner12 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    Yesterday I read an article stating Arsenal have to believe in winning the title and a fan said he saw nothing special about Chelsea and that we can overtake them. Apparently he hasn’t been watching Arsenal this season. You know what the difference between a manager like Mourinho or Ferguson is, tactical astuteness. In the season of 2011 2012 when United won the title they were fired there by goals from Robin Van Persie. Why did Ferguson get Robin Van Persie? because they lost the title on goal difference. Chelsea are 12 points ahead of Arsenal because they keep winning. The difference between this season and last? Mourinho identified their weaknesses, they got Fabregas to create chances and strikers to put th3 ball in the net. You see the results.

    Arsenal have been crying out for a DM for seasons, what happened today? Gibbs had to track back to make a tackle in the middle of midfield where the DM should have been. Montero who was pretty much destroying Chambers the whole night got past him again and omis beat 6 defenders in the air for us to concede yet another headed goal. 90 minutes and absolutely no instructions were given to assist Chambers. That is poor reading ofg th3 game.

    Hate Mourinho all you want but he is a world class manager and until he changes his ways we will suffer

    1. 5th Gen Gooner says:

      Yep I hate the ego on Mourinho but he’s got Wenger in his pocket. Can’t fault his record but it’s easy with Wenger. Beginning to think Wenger really is a specialist in failure!

    2. Ks-Gunner ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

      That srry ass blind fool @Gooner said that. I was also speachles that for i remembered this comment aswell.

  27. john0711 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    Guys you don’t have to be a top manager to see
    Monreal isn’t a CB
    Mert is hiding –
    Ramsey should be benched and earn his shirt
    Flamini is a nice guy but past it
    Chaimbo didn’t help,chambers once
    Corzola isn’t a left mid
    We are short in DM
    And short at CB
    WHO MAKES ALL THESE DECISIONS ?

          1. 5th Gen Gooner says:

            I keep reading ‘How will Arsenal find a replacement for Wenger?’ Well Southampton lost their manager and half their team (which did extremely well last season) and have come back stronger than ever. Wenger is not only replaceable but we could come back looking like the Arsenal we used to love!

  28. mike1977 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    So funny to hear Wenger’s excuses after every game we drop points. We hear the same guff all the time, “we will learn from this”, “this will make us mentally stronger for the next game” blah blah sodding blah. Wenger is absolutely ruining this team/club. If Wenger was in charge of Chelsea they would end up way down the league because of him. How many more years will the dumbfcuk WKB brigade take of this mediocrity???????

  29. wibble ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    We normally have a good half a season. So if from Jan 2015 to May 2015 and Aug 2015 to Dec 2015 we have a good run of BPL results, we can claim the statistic of getting the most points in the calendar year again just like in 2013 🙂

    Surely that’s just like winning the BPL, is it not.

  30. mike1977 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    Good news though folks. Ozil and Giroud will be back soon. Ozil can make those killer passes to our stationary striker while he himself holds the ball up for nobody in particular. It’s ace being an Arsenal fan. I really am in chelp mode at the moment.

  31. Ronny331 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    Some simple proof today that wenger is blind, stupid or stubborn. I said days agao we must play belerin due to routledege and dyer havingpace Once I saw the reateam sheet and montero it was even more important as he’s lightning quick. So here’s two oppurtunities wengers missed to make the right simple selection. He then allows chambers to get skinned all game does not bring on belerin, does not instruxt Ramsey or others to offer cover. Now he’s nsuceeded in danagibg a young new players confidence, specialist in failure indeed, wenger out and not upstairs bit too another club!

  32. mr lean ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    We win football playing the same way but we still lose playing the same way.no plan b no recruitment in positions we need and no chance of Wenger leaving time for alcohol !

  33. Aussie Jack says:

    It`s interesting to see Southampton (regarded by some as a feeder club for Arsenal) firmly entrenched in second spot after letting some of their most promising players leave. There has to be a message here somewhere! When they leave they just produce more and yet Wenger is credited with being the genius of youth football and the best Academy in the league so where are the likes of Gnabry, Coquelin, Afobe, Bellerin Zelaman, Wellington and Campbell? These are names that should be in the first team line-up now replacing Carzola, Arteta, Mertesacker , Flamini, and the likes who are not as effective as they used to be. Maybe we should be the feeder club to Southampton, not that they need us.

  34. john0711 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    Wenger tells fans who want to win the PL “they have to be more realistic”

    So there you have it finally the truth

  35. mr lean ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    Just one thing I want to say I have my views which some like and other do not I also agree with other views and not others but we need to remember we are all fans of Arsenal FC so with that in mind please be respectfull and no personnel abuse.

  36. Izuchukwu ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    I took Mourinho one season only to rebuild a Chelsea team that fell short in his absence. He asked those that should go to go. He retired those that should retire. We are in the ninth year under Wenger, speaking grammar game after game…using Arsenal money to service welfare funds for crocked players….so its only in Arsenal you have players like Diaby whose career now is granting interviews, its only in Arsenal Arteta gets old and play every match as a starter. What more can I say…its only in Arsenal a manager collects 8 million for 9 years of mediocrity….what is funny is that we have been saying this for at least 6 years now…and like that we are being shouted down….but people like me, our brand of shirt now has insignia written…..PATIENCE. One day we shall look for Wenger, and we shall find him no more…

  37. eljah ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    “in Arsene we Trust” becomes “in Arsene we Rust”. pls wenger we know you tried your best to help arsenal and its not clearly working. Give the chance for young and energetic coaches. We need our glorious days back!

    Well there was an article earlier about us buying Hummels in January.
    In:
    Hummels £30m
    Krychowiak £15m
    Total: £45m

    Out:
    Podolski £12m

    Net spend: £33m
    Hummels is 25, Krychowiak 24. We already have a very young squad. We would be set for years. No need to spend big again for a while.

      Might as well battle on to get 4th.
      In the summer have a clean out.
      Is 4th place Arsenal an attractive
      destination for the worlds best?
      Ozil is clearly unhappy and after today
      Sanchez is probably starting to wonder.

      1. Mick The Gooner ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

        I don’t think we need a complete clear out. I just think we need a DM and CB urgently, then we’d have a very good starting 11
        Szczesny
        Debuchy Hummels Koscielny Gibbs
        Krychowiak Ramsey
        Walcott Özil Alexis
        Welbeck/Giroud

        Not bad is it?

        I think we should get a better striker too, but with Alexis, Walcott and Özil, it’s less urgent than a CB and DM.

    Chambers did not stop a single cross all game, he is so slow like Mertesacker at RB…

  42. kamn288 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    it has to be said arsene should have made a defensive change brought on some tall player to just alleviate the pressure instead brings sanogo on who fouls on the minute he comes-on, title challenge was viable when the lead was 9 points and now it is mere impossible so we can safely say that arsene has ruined another year of winning the league.

  43. mike1977 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    If we are being honest about who is good enough to be in the Arsenal starting 11 right now i’d say Sanchez that’s all. Gibbs is average but can sometimes be quality,Monreal ain’t a CB, Mert is crap, Chambers has heart but is making too many mistakes at present, Flamini also has heart but is nowhere near good enough, Ramsey, it just ain’t happening for him at the moment, Cazorla is too inconsistent, Sanchez is world class, Ox isn’t as good as Walcott for starting 11 place, Welbeck is either off form or rubbish. It would be nice to think that someone chose which players we had at the club and also who gives them their instructions, if any.

    We all saw chambers struggling with pace against Montero and all I kept on shouting was to defend that wing or eventually pay d price . I don’t need to be a coach to see the outrageously obvious weakness before reacting but we have a proactive manager in wenger , even if he decided not to start bellerin but d weakness on chambers wing was calling for him to come on. This clueless man is sinking arsenal with himself

              The difference between me and you lot is, you knuckleheads play to the thumbs. Using it to bolster your feeble self worth. I just put my opinion out there and could care less if it’s thumbed or not. As long as you get my point…

          @nygunner: whatever makes you think that everyone is repeating, when it is in reality a lot of people sharing similar opinions.

            @adienl
            The same people, saying the same thing, over and over is called “repetition”
            Regardless if they share the same opinion or not…
            I don’t make the rules. Just puttin em out there…

    U wish someone death and u still get thumbs up?What kinds of retards do we have on this forum.A bunch of good for nothing internet freaks who only manage the Arsenal team behind desktops.

    1. 5th Gen Gooner says:

      Agree bad taste. Must admit though some of the ‘desktop managers’ couldn’t do a worse job!

    Funny, I haven’t seen many “WONGER OUT, We ned Klopp he gud couch” recently. What’s the matter, now that Klopp has essentially became Wenger like I’ve been telling you idiots all along you don’t want him??

    1. juhislihis ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

      He’s a great manager having a really bad season. They won the league like 2 years ago? And featured in the Champions League final 18 months ago. He’s nothing like Wenger, you tool.

      Yeah, still want him but face it: what’s the point of saying “Wenger out” when it’s clear Arsenal FC won’t sack a manager, never mind during the season.

      1. Sacrificial_Pizza ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

        He’s nothing like Wenger? You watch a lot of Dortmund?? I’ll assume not, you just know the headlines. As a lifelong Dortmund and Arsenal fan I will tell you without a doubt our 2 managers are like Father and Son. Too stuck in their ways to change a lineup, will never bench a struggling player. VERY odd sub selection. But I guess you’ve been following him since he brought Mainz up to the Bundesliga as well, and already knew all of that. Sorry to insult your intelligence.

        Idiot

        1. juhislihis ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

          I care sh*t about if he plays struggling players, that’s not the main problem for us.

          I follow Bundesliga and BVB whenever I can. ‘Lifelong fans’ like you probably didn’t find a single fault at Klopp’s managerial style until this season when it’s going badly. But now you’re jumping the gun as their season is plummeting. Well Arsenal has been plummeting for years, being out of the title race in November.

          Klopp has single-handedly lifted BVB to fight for the title. The trophies prove it. If he reminds of Wenger, then he reminds the Wenger of 96-05, not the current one. Klopp got passion and tactics. Even their injury-ravaged team in their worst season for years beat EASILY us, what does it tell you about Wenger?

          Oh and what goes for transfer window, I think he’s done pretty well given the funds available for BVB. Isn’t Mkhitaryan their most expensive transfer of all time, £22 million? Reminds me of our time when Arshavin was our most expensive. So I would assume BVB can’t afford to buy players like Sanchez or Özil. What glaring holes are you referring to? Lewandowski?

        2. Sacrificial_Pizza ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

          NOT TO MENTION. Klopp has done pretty awful in the Transfer Market replacing GLARING holes. Reminds me of someone else……….

        3. IceBergKamp10 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

          I agree. Klopp is no better when it comes to flexibility. I’ll rather see some new name.

    A fellow gooner who went today just text to say he spoke with an itk gooner and the reason we did not buy a back up CB in the summer was Wenger wants it to be a first choice CB not a back up so they can partner kos ,with mert being the third choice.

    1. IceBergKamp10 ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

      Hahahahahahahahahaha…..
      & that smiley face at the end.really killed it.
      you are good.

  51. Arsenal Fan ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    Arsene is still the right man for me. Ability to bring in Sanchez Özil and develop the Walcotts Ramsay. Develop a system that when working is at times unplayable.
    Defensively though changes need to be made!!
    Wenger is right for me, the defence isn’t. Need to replace both CB, GK

    1. Jimbeam ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

      @ Arsenal Fan, I am speechless at your inability to grasp the reality.

      Wenger has been at Arsenal for 17 years he has bought and sold every single player on the team. The best he has ever done with a squad that was completely built by him is 4th place.

      Sanchez and Ozil would have come to Arsenal with Klopp or Simeone or pretty much any other successful European manager.

      He started the season with 2 senior CDs. Nuff said.

    2. RSH ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

      When working is unplayable? You mean one in every 50 games? The Invincibles Era ended a decade ago mate, wake up!!

    3. gamer ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

      ahhhhh this season has been a disaster nightmare!!! im soo fed up i just wana stop watching football . i hate mourinho but i know for a fact had he been our manager right now he would no how to use these players we have. call me a farce but surely monreal at rb with chambers in the centre is better than monreal at cb with chambers rb

    4. Sacrificial_Pizza ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

      Forget the plastics. They don’t understand anything. If we had a good replacement I would be OK with Wenger stepping down, but for right now, this season. He’s still the best person to roll us into the end of the season

  52. GOONSTER ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    And I can’t wait for GIROUD to come back, at least he give us a platform to attack…

      1. Twig ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

        As a substitute, Giroud is as good as Messi. We just need to learn how to use him properly 🙂

        1. almostawinner says:

          probs right now are in defence.
          we let in 3 on tue, 2 today.

          root cause: wenger didnt buy CB
          (and then kos injured: monreal at CB : didnt jump)

          another root cause: W believes players can play out of position

          1. MIA GUNNER FAN ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

            It has come to this thanks to Wenger, missing out another above average player such as Giroud, we had hopes with Welbeck as he had a couple of good games, but don’t forget he is a REJECT from MANURE and he was the best that Wenger could find the stingy POS brought ARSENAL to this a midlevel team….

    1. RSH ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

      and i must admit i do appreciate Giroud’s goals more now that he’s gone. We berate him for only scoring against midtable teams, but nobody else besides him seems able to do it now. (except Alexis of course)

    2. RSH ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

      welbeck may as well be invisible sometimes, I agree. At least the team can play off of Giroud and he has some presence in the box. I honestly wouldnt be surprised if Welbeck doesnt score again in 2014.

    3. Twig ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

      We just need Koscielny and Debuchy back and to push Chambers to midfield (even though he’ll probably pick up a couple of reds). January can’t come soon enough!

      1. almostawinner says:

        chambers at DM would def better arteta,flam.
        I wish W had played bellerin at RB and chambers at CB today.

  53. Sacrificial_Pizza ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    I like how this was up before the game was even over, what an awful “supporters” site this is haha

    1. Truth Hurts ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

      Maybe the people over here are realist and could see what was going to happen a
      when Swansea scored the second and our manager was still sitting on his a## biting his nails

    2. juhislihis ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

      This kind of result was in the air before the match even started you tool. It’s Wenger with his decade old tactics, what you expect?

    3. RSH ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

      maybe your stream or whatever is slow. But even when late equalisers or winners are scored, this site has an article up about a minute later. Don’t know how, but they get it done.

      1. Sacrificial_Pizza ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

        It’s not rocket science. They have 2 baboons hammer out 2 dumb articles. One says ARSENAL WIN, WONGER IS GEENYUS, and the other one writes this. However it turns out that article goes up. It’s weird that I have to explain that haha.

        I would have loved to get a screenshot of this article if Wilshire would have maybe hit that late equaliser haha
