Lone Star Gunner

This is what the end of an era looks like. Sad days.

KimmyKay

Can we have the number of fouls/yellow cards that were not called by idiot ref? Particularly on alexis.

Wiscogooner

I see the 2 for 2 aerial duels from Mustafi, but I clearly remember him having one of his signature “I jumped to show effort but got nowhere close to it” at half field for their 2nd goal build up. Is that not included in aerial duels because he misses so badly?

Ramsey really is suit. Amazing for someone that thinks so highly of himself.
So many turnovers.

Deadwood Gooner

Your reading is suit.

Koscielny had a terrible first season, I think Mustafi and Xhaka will do better next season. Hopefully.

The defence has been an issue for many years.Yet the fm has ignored making the gunners hard to beat concentrating on his attacking philosophy.Then he had Henry and his merry band but not anymore.
In fact he shd have left after winning the cup in 2014.Now Arsenal are in free fall.He shd let Bould
take over now.Of course there is no guarantee he will be winning but its still better than to wait
until end of season.
Wenger has been given too much power and time and has repeatedly shown he aint able
to get the gunners challenging.Time for him to go asap.
