That was as frustrating as hell. This team hasn't got a fighter in the squad at all. No one stood up and dragged this team to victory which, I believe they deserved. They got cocky. Adams, Vieira, DB10, Fabregas, Van Persie would have stood up and be counted. None of the that team can. They go down when challenged not stand up.
Don't praise Guendouzi for doing maupay after the whistle. He came across as a petulant prick, not a tough guy.
A game we should've won. I'm not criticising Arteta as he does he shows the desire to win. This team is not his. Why are people complaining about his team selection? Saying picking the same old players. Who the fuck else is he going to pick?
This team rolled over and were too afraid to go in and win the game. Players with no character at all.
I am absolutely fcuking stunned by this statement
Martinelli has got zero game time in two woefully shit team performances, and yet you think arteta's selections are right ??? Tierney was one of our 3 best outfield players against citeeh, and today he is dropped. How in gods name has a leeds united substitute (nketieh) jumped ahead of lacazette and martinelli in the team selections ? If you bring off laca today, then surely you bring martinelli in on the wing and push auba central ? It's not fcuking rocket science ffs. Playing auba (our best goal chance) on the wing is acceptable if we have a bang on form laca in the middle, but other than that there is no striker who should be picked in the middle ahead of him
That is one player who you wanted to bring on as a substitute not in the starting line up. Personally, I'd have brought on Ozil and put Auba through the middle. The game was tight and he still has the capability to pick out a pass that can change the game. Tierney worked hard at city, and given the amount of time he has been out this season, maybe, the brighton game was too soon for him. I bet he starts against southampton.
Tierney starts in my team no doubt about it - not one of these players played a game in over 100 days so none of them are fit, and Tierney should be no further behind than the rest of them.
Martinelli should have started, and worst case scenario comes on as a sub, and it is a disgrace that in the midst of 2 diabolical performances he isnt thought of as a guy that can make a difference
For the life of me I do not understand why he keeps playing willock
The guy scores 2 goals in warm-up games against championship teams, and this see's him promoted in arteta's plans ??
Do me a favour. The guy scored 2 goals against championship teams cos that is his level
Can anyone tell me where he played Tierney when he brought him on cos no defender was subbed ? Explain how, when you need a goal fast, how a manager can bring on an extra defender instead of a more attack minded player
There is no logic to what arteta is doing right now ? He played holding cos of a serious lack of centre backs so I wont pan either of them for the first brighton goal. However arteta is showing all the signs of a guy that is out of his depth and doesnt know how to halt the slide of a club that has been falling apart long before he arrived
