One big difference I see between us and the top of the table sides is that when they are in the opposition third they attack the box and as a last resort pass it back towards the center circle area. They have players at the ready and they make an attempt to get the ball around the 18 yard box for someone to do something useful with it.

I see our players seemingly receive a pass and instead of moving it forward pass it behind them. No sense of urgency, no other player running channels. We are bereft of confidence, not enough players willing to attack.

It’s just a disaster. We just Don’t seem to get a break. I don’t see how you can change this.

Btw that shoulder issue Tierney had has been an issue for a while. I’d expect an extended absence

Not a single shot on target. I think you could take any team in the championship and league 1 and they’d give West Ham a better game tonight.
Not sure I’ve ever seen a team so short of confidence but even more worryingly and unforgivable is the lack of effort.

I cannot stand these players that are not giving 100% for the shirt. Get the U23 team out there. We might lose but at least we’d see some fight

Yes Lacazette for Özil,

Mesut has made an art of laying the ball off sideways whilst looking cool... then doing nothing else.

*%^@ defence comes as standard but we have absolutely nothing in midfield these days. Nothing. No control, no defence and no creativity.

How has that happened?

So when we lose to Man City best week we could have Brighton, West Ham and Burnley all easily go above us in the table. Maybe not Everton just yet as they are away to Man U

The week after we play and lose to Everton whilst Bournemouth and villa have winnable games.

On Boxing Day were away and losing to Bournemouth who would probably go above us and villa have Norwich at home to probably leapfrog is.

It’s probably only Southampton’s tough run of games that keeps us out of th bottom 3

At the moment I’d wager we’re 17th in the league on Boxing Day

Missed a fair bit of first half. What happened to Tierney - you know the injury prone second rate player from celtic who people on here kept telling me was not injury prone. We should have been looking for a CB at the time.

I think that was the worst 45 minutes I've seen from an Arsenal team since.... well ever. It makes me sick. What a disgrace.

...and having seen the replay, Xhaka was every bit as milky as I called it at the moment. He really should not be playing for us.

Isn't there a strategy for when a team presses?

How has that happened?

It is staggering

Let ramsey, the ox, Wilshere and Cazorla all go and have zero passing midfielders

Absolutely ludicrous. Pépé is our most creative player these days because nothing comes from the middle of the park

We’ve tried virtually every player in every formation possible and there is still no reaction. What is it going to take to inject some effort in to this team. Sadly I think they’re all too precious to react to a rollicking, they’ll just go insular and hide even more.

Never seen a group of professional athletes be so gutless.

Twice cresswell has gone right through Pépé, booked now but the first one wasn’t even a free kick

It’s only Torriera who offers any energy in midfield. The others are largely static and don’t move.

It’s just not enough

I'd suggest getting Adams and Keown in to get hold of a few of them by the neck, but they'd go crying to their mums and probably need counselling.

Won’t be TA. I heard today Tony could be about to take another management job in the UK.

Well played that lad. I have great hopes of him.

Shouldn’t disguise the fact that at the very heart of our team we have two players - Özil and Xhaka - who are windy, milky, avoiding of physical challenges and basically cowardly.
