Come on boys, no excuses of being frozen today.

Psychologically or physically.

I have not watched the last few Arsenal games and woth good reason. Awful. I really hope we lose so changes can be made.

Are you making up some of those Brighton names blogs? 😉

Deano

Should have no problem dealing with Bong, most of the players have been playing as if they have been on bongs over the last couple of weeks.

Deano

Thought there would be more changes, oh well should beat Brighton. Guess we’ll have to see if the proof is in the pudding and whether he has lost the dressing room or not.

We should but we won’t. The teams’ confidence is shot and they just don’t believe in the manager anymore.

Just like Johnnie Walker, he’ll keep walking till he sees it out as he always does.

Ryan, Bong, Dunk, Duffy ? That lineup is so gross!

Weren’t those the names of the Weetabix characters from the 1980s advert?

We’re probably going to win today. Not going to make me feel much better. Conversely, if we lose it’ll definitely make me feel worse. Weird how that works.

did anyone read the guardian article that one senior player broke to tears during a team meeting without wenger. i think there is some issues behind the scenes betweeen wenger and squad. the squad think they need more help from the coaching staff. if that is the case then wengers positions is seriously in doubt for next season

Line up looks solid. We will win comfortably today. Too bad whatever we do now in the league means squat. A lil too late fellas.

Chambers at right-back is a big call, I just hope that Wenger hasn’t dropped him into a situation that he isn’t really suited to, especially recalling how he was destroyed at Swansea a couple of years ago.

Hope he’s up for it because he will be targeted all game long. I know I would if I was the opposing manager. Get my fastest guy on the flank and feed it to him non stop.

A situation he isn’t really suited to.?
You mean like playing football ?

Wearing 3rd kit, so we should win. NBC showed the changing room and some players are in short sleeves while most were in long sleeves. Thought club rules required them all to be the same?

Finally Iwobi is back so i am definitely expecting some good interchanging and ball movement coupled with goals. And hopefully after we are ahead Elneny is brought in to help with ball possession and protecting our defense.

Checked scores online and not surprisingly…we’ve conceded a goal from Lewis Dunk at 7 minutes into the match, as at 26 minutes we are yet to record a single shot on target against F*cking Brighton!!! FFS!…Typical Arsenal. If we end up losing this match, which I don’t wish, Wenger should be sacked at Half Time in the next match just to shame him for his stubbornness, irrespective of the scoreline in that match.

lol check again mate. 2-0

I told myself I’m not gonna watch the game today. Just looked at the score, it’s 2-0. When the players don’t wanna play for the manager anymore, then what is the point in watching the games? Just hoping for change sooner rather than later

25 minutes and 2-0 down.
Why wait until the end of the season?
This is bloody awful…

I’ve gone beyond thinking that the manager or board will do the right thing when things have got so bad on the pitch and that’s why I repeat that the best fans in the world, the glorious and mighty Gooners must stop going to games. Not like citeh last week but way worse. A 60K seater stadium with only 10K fans every week will force someone’s hand.

2 nil down and not one sign of anything from the bench. Wenger and Bould watching the game as if they’re spectators, fucking joke! Kudos to the gooners who travelled to watch this shit show!

The worst I’ve ever seen and thats saying something with this team. Cannot believe what I’m watching. We are making Brighton look like man city

Bring back Denilson, Bendtner, and Squillachi.

i don’t think we want to bring them back …

Deano

Grabbed a priceless goal, but confidence is completely rock bottom. I have never seen Kos play so badly. Geez his passing has been woeful.

Anonymarse

Goal did seem to give us a lift.

We have just spent 180 minutes getting pasted so perhaps we will get better now …

or perhaps not …

Our passing is terrible. Our movement is non-existent, plus our gear box has lost nearly all forward gears. This has been us for a while now, unfortunately.

Wyn Mills

We really lack forward impetus. Out attempts to pass it through a packed defence smacks of a lack of Plan B. That Plan B used to be called Giroud.

Wenger must go. This is getting silly now.
The board need to grow a set and make the change that needs to happen.

Cannonball

Really broke my heart seeing how we play these days. No purpose, no clear intention, just passing and passing until the box is overcrowded. Then run to defense when somebody loses the ball.
Sad. I want to cry so much.

That’s ten defeats this season !! The last time it happened was when George Graham was in charge. Right now I’d have him back in a heartbeat !!!
