Gallas far from impressed with Arsenal’s result against Fulham

Similar to many Arsenal supporters, William Gallas expressed dissatisfaction with Arsenal’s performance against Fulham, resulting in a loss to the Cottagers.

Mikel Arteta’s team had been performing well in the Premier League during the season, establishing themselves as one of the top clubs to watch. With success both on and off the pitch, fans had hoped for an improvement from the previous campaign, where they came close to winning the Premier League.

However, in the closing weeks of 2023 and the beginning of 2024, Arsenal faced a downturn, losing important games. The team, which initially seemed to be in contention for the top spots, is now battling for a top-four position, falling short of fans’ expectations of a higher standing.

One of the notably disappointing results was the 2-1 loss to Fulham, and Gallas, like many fans, was unimpressed with Arsenal’s performance in that particular game.

The former defender said, as quoted by The Sun:

“Arsenal always have the same problem. When you are in that position and you are top of the Premier League at Christmas, you simply have to keep that position.

“That means every game you have to win and that’s why for me, it was unacceptable that they lost to Fulham away.

“It’s a problem of the players as they didn’t do their job, they weren’t good enough and it was unacceptable. With Arsenal, it’s always the same problem and it seems to be happening over and over again.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Any team that wants to win the league cannot lose back-to-back games to West Ham and Fulham.

We must resume action this month in a stronger manner or forget about winning the league.

  1. The former Chelsea and exArsenal captain is right we just didn’t turned up at the races.

    But Arsenal can set this right by handing the old season campaigner outfit, a heavy defeat on Saturday

    1. Reality tells us – or those among us who take results one at a time- the truth that winning one game, even one immediately game after a debacle such as the Fulham game, DOES NOT “SET THIS RIGHT” as you wrongly claim.

      And the reason why “it cannot set things right”, is that NOTHING can make up for the loss of three points against Fulham. That is obvious and should not need much serious thought, though it seems, for whatever reason, to have escaped your notice!

      And BTW, we have not even played the PALACE GAME AS YET, LET ALONE WON IT.

  2. Arteta should sometimes listen to fans instead of sticking to some poor scouting ideas. In the summer, Marc Allister, Szoboslai, Maddison and a host of other obvious targets were available for the cheap but he chose to return to Chelsea where he has often failed in the past to spend almost double what any of the above would have cost and get a Chelsea flop; an unproven PL player just because he is a German international.

    He needs to stick with either Zinchenko or Smith Rowe in the absence of Partey in the midfield alongside Rice. Any of these would make our attack to produce better results than Havertz.

    We also need a reinforcement in the defense. If he can’t get Gimenez as I’m hearing they are trying to, they should hold on for the right choice of striker when the funds are available.

  3. Yeah Gallas, it’s always the same problem. For ANY club, if your players don’t play as well as the other club’s players, you are likely to lose the game.

  4. Some of arsenal players are overrated…
    When you do a metaphysical analysis of these players, you’d see, they are much decorated, yet what they do in a game is very average. Let’s go;
    White: he is never a defender, when you look at him in duels, he simply runs backward not putting his foot in until the striker does what he likes with the ball. Offensively, most of his distributions are back passes to the keeper. How many crosses per game, quite scant, phew!

  5. Metaphysical analysis continues:
    Ordigaard as a 10;
    no champagne passes to release the striker, but only meaningless one meter pass which can be done by any player. Defensively, white and Rice left exposed because he is just weak at their level

  6. Saka:
    Very predictable, he will try to cut in all the time. Wenger, once said, use more your right foot…how many shots at goal and crosses, a paltry
    Defensively he used to be strong under Unai but has defaulted to not winning marking duels.

  7. Galas is absolutely right, the players just did not perform against Fulham. We cannot continue like this or even top 4 will be difficult.
