Don't blame him. Rosicky fannying about and complaining about Fabregas blocking the ball illegally sums up our utter fucking naivety. Should have just smashed the ball and broken his arm if he needed to.

Our naivety is embarrassing. Time and time again they buy cheap fouls from nothing situations. Towards the end of the first half Welbeck clipped the ball round the corner against Cahill who clipped him on a yellow - if he goes down the ref has a decision to make but instead he stayed on his feet despite no advantage. Oscar went in late on Chambers as he cleared the ball down the line after about 70 minutes - if Chmabers goes down holding his leg it's a guaranteed booking, he doesn't.

We let them slow down every free-kick we had by picking up the ball etc, if a player grabs it out their hand and causes a scene it at least highlights it to the ref. When Wilshere took that heavy touch in the first half he could have thrown himself in and got the ball and smashed Cech who has a habit of bottling collisions. Ball could pop up favourably, Cech could hurt himself and they'd be left without a keeper for an hour. Instead he didn't, definitely worth the risk of a yellow.
Totally agree NB123, BUT what I just cant understand and can someone try and explain, We arent short of others apart from Wenger around who can impart that wisdom, Bouldie has years of experience for example, yet it doesnt seem to happen, surely a few basics to Chambers as to how to avoid naive yellow cards would be a good start-He should have been pulled off once he got the yellow, and did well to avoid one with those cheating chavs poor guys just clocking them up faster than Rodders kegs come down.

Stan Collymore :oops: , maybe not the sharpest brain, but sums it up in a few sentences. If its obvious to hoim isnt there someone, even the tea lady who can point out where we keep going wrong. Frustrated as :censored: :evil:

BTW some embarassing AFC fans found fun lighting flares in the ground :roll:

Just fucking standing in no man's land, made a difficult finish for Costa with a bouncing ball easy by starting to come and then just standing there like a fucking clown on the penalty spot waiting to get lobbed. His concentration is fucking shocking, he gets bored and the longer the game goes on the worse his decision-making gets. I presume Ospina was injured today as not on the bench but I would love to see Szczesny bombed out for a while.
This right here. As soon as Costa chested it down right into his path Szczesny should have been rushing all the way out to tackle it away instead of standing there halfway between the goal line and the ball. If he wasn't going to do that he could have gone back more to the goal line and forced Costa to really get his head up and compose a finish instead of easily lobbing him.

how about this for a nightmare scenario - April 25th towards the end of the season Chelsea visit Arsenal with maybe a win to secure the PL. Fabregas and Mourinho lift the PL trophy at the Emirates :oops: :(

While Wengers in charge, we'll be the little kid outside the shop looking through the window at all the goodies he can't have.

Oh how accurate this turned out to be :roll: as much of a limp dicked performance as the 8-2 5-1 6-0 etc of previous years at the big clubs in truth the chavs didnt even need to get out of 1st gear they just had to pull out their cocks and do us up the bumhole with a couple of rough thrusts..exactly tbe same will happen at citeh manure and probably at anfield too.

I thought we were pretty much outclassed over the 90 minutes unfortunately. Worked hard and looked more solid than last season (hardly difficult), but in order for us to try to defend properly, we didn't even manage a shot on target.

We're a very small and weak team IMO - we don't have any bully players. City have Toure and Kompany, Chelsea have Terry and Costa - players who intimidate people and who put themselves about a bit. We have Wilshere who whilst he tries his best, is the equivalent of a yapping Yorkie rather than a snarling doberman. Where's our Patrick Vieira? Our Tony Adams? Who in this Arsenal side has the ability and mentality to stand the fuck up instead of being rolled over by the bigger boys?

And the most worrying thing of all is that I was all a bit apathetic about it. I didn't bother going to the game, I woke up expecting us to shoot ourselves in the foot defensively, find a new way of embarrassing ourselves and come away with defeat. Again. I wasn't even particuarly annoyed, I was just bored of watching the same film I've seen a thousand times before under Wenger. This concerns me more than anything, it's all so predictable.

Germany world champions and we get three of their squad who are shit

Merts, is a labouring fucker, Pod is a pointless at the Arsenal and Ozil has little or no impact.

Why the fuck couldn't we get Hummels, Reus and Draxler

Face it, we are an unambitious club, with a dead from the waist up board and a manager who is past it. We were never going to turn over a team like Chelsea with all their winners, great manager and ambitious board.

Yesterday was a direct debit.

We cannot lay a glove on them these days. They are the polar opposite to us. Best get used to it I am afraid.

Sad how far we have fallen.

this is the elephant in the room really.

ok we have been waiting for financial restrictons to be lifted at the club so that Wenger can spend more.
now that they have and lets face it he has spent pretty big these past 2 summers it is becoming worryingly apparent that even if Wenger buys top quality he doesnt really know what to do with it.he also only seems capable of buying small midfield players who whilst techically are very good, are able to offer little else at this level.

Cesc was class and still came over to the away fans at the end, despite the abuse.

Meanwhile he shoved it in the faces of the clueless pricks booing him all game in the best way he could've, with that great assist.
