In recent years I see a pathetic habit in football where a player gets tagged as shit/ a calamity, then everyone (especially the meeja) pounce on every little mistake and crucify the guy ……….. that was not the case with mustafi last night cos he was horrendous :censored: Panic radiated around him, the opposition clearly targetted him, and I still say that he is one of the worst centre backs in the air that I have ever seen (especially from those long aimless punts by the opposition keeper) :roll: :oops:

Talking of horrendous, monreal and the armenian pussy HAVE TO GO - monreal gifted them 2 glorious chances in the first half when he basically shit his pants when the ball came to him, and he passed it to their striker :roll: Positionally he was all over the place in the back 3, and if he plays this season, then the sight of him running around like a demented fool with his hand in the air claiming for unknown free kicks, will be an all too regular an occurance :roll: Mikki is shit - everything he done turned to shit. If he hangs around he will be in the way and get in the way of the development of players like nelson, saka etc.

Talking of the younger kids, the wingers I mentioned looked lively at times, but in essence delivered fcuk all. Eddie will get the headlines for the 2 goals, but his performance was hit and miss imo - his link up play was absolutely shocking, but his pace in behind scared their defence shitless. His second goal my dead grandmother could have scored, but the first one he scored great calmness and slotted it away well. The 2 kids in centre mid were absolutely steamrollered in the first half although burton was brave and always looked to get on the ball. Martinez in goal made a number of saves, but none were saves that you wouldnt expect him to make

Imo chambers was motm although he wasnt flawless either - he read the game well, was very composed at the back, and was physical when he needed to be. I would like to see him get a chance with us after having a good season at fulham last season, but I dont think it will happen. He played centre back last night and it seems that in a team overloaded with midfielders, centre back is his best hope of gametime

The thing is, who would you give it to? The crisis with this squad, no one can be THE leader. If it was to me, I'd give it to Papa. I would consider Auba/Laca but these two either don't play the full 90 or one starts from the bench. If I had to, keep Granit as vice so he doesn't get pissed off.

I would think pissing him off would be a good Idea .
1 it might buck his ideas up
2 He might put in a transfer request.

Yeah Sokrites would also be my first choice, after that I’d actually give it to Bellerin. I think the responsibility of the armband would see him play in a less cavalier way and actually improve him as a player big time. Think the captaincy would suit him.

You’re right in saying the team is devoid of leaders but under absolutely no fucking circumstances should the Swiss turd ever be captain, the prick shouldn’t even be at the club.

I should also say that our only signing thus far (martinelli) missed a glorious chance to score with a few minutes to go, but it was a chance that he created for himself - he did really well skipping past the centre back, raced through on goal, and slipped his shot barely past the right hand post. If you wanted to be harsh you could say that he should have scored, but he is still a rookie kid and was really confident to take on the defender and was in hard luck imo

Honestly, what is this shit with that club and that illiterate, ugly *word censored*? I've just seen some shit on the BBC asking whether he's the new Nayim? Is that not the biggest wind-up anti-Arsenal shit ever? No, the cúnt is the new Phil Stamp or Vladamir Kinder or Mark Stein or Steve Lomas or Neil Shipperley because they've won fuck all too.
He ain't no Anders Limpar because he was smacking them in from the half way line 27 years ago but nobody wants to talk about him. Fucking fuck off.
