Liverpool 4-0 Arsenal – player ratings

178

Alex, who developed our ratings systems, asked if I’d like to swap the player ratings for poo ratings for this game.

It was very tempting. Nevertheless, here are the ratings from today’s dismal 4-0 hammering by Liverpool.

Three games in and I feel as sad as I did last spring. How on earth can we make so many bad decisions and none-decisions?

How can Ox & Alexis & Ozil even be played, does Wenger speak to his players? Is he just completely deluded and ignorant to the fact that these players aren’t playing for him anymore? Why does he think they won’t sign contracts? Because they want to stay but just don’t want to ruin the surprise by telling him now? It’s not about money, it’s not about wanting to win the premier league (impossible under Wenger) it’s about getting away from this car crash without disrespecting a once great manager and legend. Sad, sad times

I am sure this will be unpopular, but I saw nothing like this from Ozil until at least the third goal, maybe later. Until then, he looked like a player who desperately wanted to win. Not saying he was great, but that his attitude and effort do not deserve the criticism people are making. In any case, out worst player, by a very long way, was Holding–whose desire is unquestionable. He was not helped by Chamberlain playing on the wrong side but the correct solution was on the bench, at least for now: Mustafi should have played instead of Holding.… Read more »

A player who desperately wanted to win would put in defensive shift, track back, tackles, instead of being invisible. When Ramsey/Ox/Xhaka doesn’t feel like defending people would bash them, but when it’s Ozil who attempted zero tackle and run away from every 50-50 every game, they gave him a free pass. Literally every opposing team plays like Ozil is not even there every single game. At this point all these Ozil worshipping is getting tiring and old. There is a reason why pundits bash him the most, rather than other players, and there is a reason why they are pundits,… Read more »

So according to you, Ozil is the biggest defensive worry??!! Believe me, he is the least of our worries, lack of a proper DM & poor CB’s are responsible for defensive issues. We lack a Kante, Matic kind of player who breaks down attacks and gives a couple of seconds more for CB’s to get back & in shape. Ozil creates enough space and opportunities up front, which is his primary job. Criticising Ozil for not putting in tackles would be akin to criticising Kos for not assisting enough and being lazy because he doesn’t run enough. Ozil was playing… Read more »

Forget this and not starting Lacazette, the fact that Kolasinac didn’t even get off the bench is astonishing. How does the one player with the kind of no-nonsense fight this game was crying out for not even get a look-in. What message does that send? Literally handicapping yourself before the first whistle, it’s fucking appalling management. There is ZERO accountability in this club and I am sick to death of it.

How can they be so tactically blind. This is a group of players, not a team. They look like their out playing in a Sunday kick around. Utterly embarrassing and as much as it pains me to say it, hopeless. No fighting spirit or pride in the shirt, every player in the starting 11 should donate their weeks wages to a charity.

Anyone else keep thinking of that 8-2 against United at the mo? For most of us, it wasn’t enough (or nearly enough) to crush our faith in Wenger. But in retrospect…. how many other top managers have shipped 8 goals like that? And course it proved an absolute augery of things to come: crushing significant defeat after crushing significant defeat. And yet… the paradox of this period has been… 3 FA Cups… however many top four finishes… protracted (albeit impotent) winning streaks and regular (albeit abrupt) flashes of hope.

From what I saw (which was only the first thirty minutes before I had to attend a sunday family thing) Chamberlain was the worst player on the field. He literally did nothing except for exist: he would consistantly let Mane run through, wouldn’t track back, and occasionally just stand in the box like he didn’t care.
I used to like him, but I think it’s time he moved on and did this type of shit at another club.

When I came into work the day after Chelsea humiliated us there was a big “6” taped to my screen. This time the lads won’t even bother because it’s become the norm. Another day, another Arsenal embarrassment.

I supported the prof all the way until last season when I joined the WengerAaahts and looks like I’m going to be staying in that group this season.

I was still hoping AW would be able to kick on after the FA cup win but it seems that was a vain hope.

Complete disgrace, no fight, no guts, this is going to be a long 2 years unless the board grow a pair, or Usmanov takes over.

It’s one thing to be beaten 8-2 by a very strong United because you just sold Fabregas and Nasri. It’s another to be beaten by Liverpool, who just made top 4, after you bought Lacazette and Kolasinac just to bench them. FFS I know how this site usually supports Wenger after a few wins against shit opposition, but he must go. And it won’t be nice unfortunately. That ship has sailed last May.

Garry Neville was spot on when he said several arsenal players want to leave but who would want them? Absolute shower of shit, Wenger should be sacked and he can take the rest of his overpaid under performing Muppets with him. Just fuck off!

I think Arsene Wenger’s theory about players on the last year of contract has been disproved in the most embarrassing way possible.

I’m so sad that i wanna cry right now , i can’t eat food and i’m experiencing much more stress than i experienced at my university final exams (And i’m studying Engineering) .

Same old Arsenal, always losing. Sad day for all gooners. This was such a hard game to watch. If this carries on, which looks like it will whilst Arsene is in charge, we will be lucky to finish 10th.

FFS Arsene. Mustafi BFG Kos. Buy a quality centre back for BFG’s spot. Bellerin on the right, Kola on the left. Fuck off Ox.
Buy Carvalho and partner him with Xhaka or Elneny. Sell/Sit Ozil. Ramsey in Ozil’s spot. Sanchez. Lacazette.
It’s not that hard.

I cannot believe we sat Kola and Laca today. Absolutely idiotic.

We’re not unravelling, we’ve unravelled.

If it were an option in football, I’d say blow it all up and start again. Play some youngsters for the season and see what we’ve got. Not the way it works unfortunately.

The players that played today should all count themselves very lucky to be at the club they are at and on the wages they are on. Hopeless.

These are probably the lowest ratings I’ve seen for some time not only here, but on any site doing ratings. There was not one player that played well today and so many that had what can be described as probably their worst game in the last few years. The fact that they had 10 shots on goal and we had a grand total of 0 truly show how one sided the match was. Wenger had pretty much his whole squad at his disposal and this is what he/they came up with?!?!?!?! I look at how so many teams that we… Read more »

We had the same number of touches on the box as Liverpool too.

And more possession.

That would actually be good.

If Sanchez and Ozil and everyone else buggers off we’ll be unable to compete, finish 9th and get knocked of Europa League by some unkown team – then maybe Le Prof would finally get his marching orders.

Even without Lacazette and Kolašinac we shouldn’t have lost like this. That was our first eleven last season! The biggest mistake Wenger did was to play so open against Liverpool on Anfield AGAIN. That should be questioned. I am not defending Wenger but it is on players to show some desire and fight also. But I will defend Ozil who is criticized harshly yet again. He ran his socks off today or did I watch different game. Hope Arseblog does some statistic on Ozil again. I think he made most sprints and ran most km on pitch in our team,… Read more »

You watched a different game mate , ozil is the root of all the problems , players see him stroll around the pitch and never get substituted so they just do the same. We should have conceded earlier when the hard working ozil LOL let a Liverpool player do a one 2 and cross ,thankfully cech came to our rescue.

Okkk, what about undisciplined and selfish Ramsey? Impossible to play with him in midfield. Or Sanchez whos work rate is worse than Ozil’s and likes to camp in offside (several times today)? And several others…

If you pay attention Ozil is not lazy and he does care! Just because he doesn’t run into players like headless chicken doesn’t mean he is lazy.

Ozil made an effort. He has been trying this season. We need to keep at least one of the 3 on a year;s contract left., Alexis wants out. Ox is beginning to annoy me bc it is clearly affecting Wenger’s decision making to play him ahead of Bellerin then play Bellerin in an odd position for him ahead of Kolasinac. So if we at least risk and keep Ozil, what we need to do is to upgrade the effing midfield behind him and not have Ramsey in a role that frankly doesn’t play to his strengths. Truth is Wenger is… Read more »

The above Xhaka picture is enough to convince anyone not to buy him.

Is it safe to say that this should be the last time we play 3 at the back this season? Why didn’t Lacazette start? Was Ozil awake in the first half? There needs to be some serious soul searching at the club after this one.

The honeymoon period for the back 3 is over. This is what happens when you have wing backs that get caught out of position, Ramsay doing likewise and you leave the likes of mane and salah to run at our 3 CB’s

You can’t change to 3 back on a whim and shoe horn the players into the system hoping it will work long term.

I don’t proclaim to know more than wenger but I’ve been watching football long enough to know when I see tactical naivety and players not playing for their manager.

Time for change
