Arsenal v Man City Player Ratings for abysmal Caraboa Cup Final

Arsenal fans should be getting used to some awful performances by Arsene Wenger’s team this season, but this was surely one of the worst as we actually played our very best available team, while the embarrassing defeats to teams like Nottm Forest and Ostersunds were at least played by our reserves..

If this is our very best team, then we are in trouble. We were outfought, outrun, out-tacticked and made to look like overpaid amateurs. It looked like we had given up after just ten minutes..

So here are my worst ever Arsenal ratings, and I am ashamed they have come in a Cup Final….

Ospina 2
Petr Cech has come in for heaps of criticism this season, but going by this pantomime performance by Ospina, Cech should never miss another match. Absolutely awful and sometimes comical..

Monreal 5
Once he was off our defence was practically non-existent, but as he gets older we must expect more absences like this. If he had stayed on he probably would have been Man Of The Match!

Mustafi 2
It’s not the first time this season that Mustafi has shown terrible judgement and it won’t be the last. If he is to be our defensive rock for the next few years we may as well hibernate from now…

Koscielny 3
Our so-called leader has lost his mojo and I don’t think he will ever find it again. I’m sorry to say his days are now numbered…

Chambers 4
I was worried when I saw his name on the teamsheet, but he showed a bit of fight and was easily our best defender (not difficult, I know!)

Bellerin 5
Hector was a brilliant right-back a few years ago, but doesn’t seem to be half as good as a winger but he does try sometimes.

Xhaka 3
Came to Arsenal with such promise but we really need a proper defensive midfielder rather than this wasteful wannabe

Wilshere 6
He is truly an Arsenal fighter but you can’t fight a war with just one warrior….

Ramsey 5
Looked slower than usual (not quite fit?) and had little chance to impress

Ozil 4
Great player… blah, blah… fails to turn up in big games… blah… Same old!

Aubameyang 5
Wenger said he had a great chance early but it was far from easy. He will fail if he gets the same service as Lacazette did, in other words very little


Kolasinac 5
Another one that has failed to live up to his early promise

Welbeck 4
He looked slightly better than against Ostersund, but that’s not saying much…

    What would Wenger’s rating be for the final?

    1. muffdiver says:

      no rating
      he gets close lined

  2. reddb10 says:

    They wont sack wenger so be prepared people because we have at least another season with the deluded one.
    As for our players the dinosaur picks them, sticks with them and renews their contracts with salary increases so in a nutshell if you don’t perform and still get a pay rise you get lazy.
    The root cause is the fool on the bench. FACT

    1. muffdiver says:

      the board have to pick
      keep getting rid of players that were good enough to buy but not to keep
      or see that wenger is failing these players

      xhaka lacazette iwobi aubameyang kola bellerin ozil holding chambers
      im sure all these players under the right manager would thrive

      xhaka kola auba lacazette ozil all team of the season players
      the rest begun in the first team excellently-downhill from there

      its the coach – ITS THE DAMN COACH

      1. TH14atl says:

        You are dead on accurate. Why do people keep wasting time trashing the players, when not one player is playing well. If not one player is playing well, not one, that should tell you there’s something bigger going on and the manager is the problem.

  3. Bellerin is the new Walcott. 100k per week to run down the right and dutifully turnover possession as soon as he is closed down at the half way line. Beat his marker? Who needs that! He dribbles and crosses like you would imagine a championship goalkeeper would if they switched positions for a day. We save 100k on Walcott and it goes straight into the drain again with Bellerin. Just great.

  4. Nayr says:

    wilshere was awful yesterday.stop defending him.

    A loss to nottingham forest,ostersunds,cup final,swansea…this season is really shaping up to be the worst.

    1. Kedar Damle says:

      Which match you saw?? He was the only who was fighting with true heart…

    2. RSH says:

      you’re right. he was awful, but his teammates were worse, and didn’t even try. Jack gets praise for even trying. This is the new standard at Arsenal.

  5. bishop says:

    all awobi haters. he did not start today whom do u wanna put the blam on. awibi is one of our best young players. u guys supoae to ne saying ozil out not awobi.what has awobi done to.u our defense is shit. we need new 5&6

    1. muffdiver says:

      your spelling made me binge eat heroin

  6. John Ibrahim says:

    The Ibrahims rule:

    all managers’ contract extension has to be depended on fans’ votes…

    Over 50% Yes – 1 year, 60% – 2 year, 70% – year, over 80% – 4 year max

    No manager should be allow to manage the club for more than 10 years..unless approve by fans through voting….

    3 year no title – Sack

    New manager- Target for first year is 3rd position, anything less – Sack
    – Target for 2nd year is 2nd position, anything less – Sack
    – Target for 3rd year is 1st position, anything less – Sack (unless CL is won)
    – Target for 4th year is 1st position, anything less – Sack (unless CL is won)

      1. McLovin says:

        Don’t feed the troll fellas. It’s just Hafiz Rahmann just exaggerating as usual.

    1. Kedar Damle says:

      Then we will have to sack every one like Chelsea and Man City But Chelsea and Man City has at least money to persuade Managers… And also they both has money to give their managers to sign whom they want.. Arsenal is poor club who cannot afford to pay the compensation amount for every outgoing manager and also singing amount to incoming managers plus allowing new managers to buy players as per his wish… Get in reality dude… Wenger is Shit.. But you cannot sack managers like that unless you having money..

  7. Sue says:

    ??????????? for all of them

  8. RSH says:

    its sad that wilshere gets the most praise simply for showing any type of urgency, unlike the rest of his teammates. didn’t even play great, just showed he cared even a little. Meanwhile, Ozil is happy to do nothing and make his 300k. Arsenal made a HUGE mistake offering him a contract. Huge.
