Some people are forgetting there are over 4 months of football left.

That is plenty of time to either recover or sink completely. Next thing you'll be matching AG with his doomy draw expectancies.

3-0 to us..................

Jack is playing well. Niles could have got us ahead there. Looking good.

Ooer. So in control. So we start to even it up with sloppy careless passes out of defence.

Makes no sense for him if he wants to win titles, but at the same time it doesn't feel like City really needs him with the way they're playing.

At this point, MU has more ambition than Arsenal

Which is impressive, given how cash-strapped United are.

As normal pretty much every promising arsenal attack, or an attack with pace ends up with us slowing it down before we even get in the box, allowing their entire defence to get back in shape

Bournemouth fans not happy with the ref, they don’t feel they are getting the 50/50’s. Whenever this happens I feel the ref is going to let it get on him and will give a shocker Bournemouth’s way at some point.

Lacazette hardly in the game, very little service....but I think he should be starting to manufacture something for himself, get himself involved

His confidence is shot to pieces. He doesn't believe in the lie Wenger is selling and looks to his flanks and sees Welbeck on one side and Iwobi on the other. He knows the delivery isn't there and when he sees a break with 4 v 4 and Bellerin still doesn't put it in the box he's simply wonders why he should bother trying at all.

Iwobi very lucky to get away with a handball from a free kick. Wasn’t brave enough to head it and sort of thrust his elbow out at it.

Arsenal totally dominant for 40 mins and then Bournemouth create one chance and almost score

So pretty much how Sanchez has felt.

How utterly pointless is it to sign class players and then surround them with dross!

This is absolutely awful football to watch. Any time there is any semblance of pressure on our back 3 in possession and it goes long straight through to their gk.
We’ve had a lot of the ball but haven’t looked like opening them up at all.

It’s got 0-0 or 1-0 Bournemouth written all over it

So much possession, so little to show for it.

Such is our lack of quality in the final third that you just know that any move is going to fizzle out once it reaches th edge of their box.

Jack superb but we really are a very average side now, compounded by the absence of Alexis and Özil.

Classic 45 minutes of tikka takka Wenger ball.

No wonder Lacazette is pissed off. It's pointless him being on the pitch.

Can't see us scoring from open play, gonna have to be a set piece.

3 first half goals away all season according to sky, absolutely disgraceful

Yeah, it feels like the club and not just the team are in transition.

Steve Claridge is on bbc commentary, he’s saying Wilshere has to do a lot more before he can be considered to even be on the plane for the World Cup.
Now if there was some competition for places in the midfield I might agree with him, but England have dier, Henderson, Delph, Livermore....as his competition.
To me it seems Wilshere is judged more harshly than the others. He’s been the games best player again today.

A swarm of stingless bees Soc .... plenty of activity buzzing here there and everywhere with so little end product .... our long passing is woeful .
Wilshere the only one on the pitch with some invention . Bellerin I'd like to throttle .... the prime waster of opportunities .

Lacazette thinking "why didn't I stay in France "

Looking forward to us grabbing a glorious 1 - 0 win and Arsene saying we played with great spirit against a very good Bournemouth side ..... Jeeez I've become such a cynic

Nearly 3.30 am here I'm taking the safe option and going back to bed :brushteeth:

He has easily

Without him your relying on Xhaka, Welbeck and Iwobi conjuring up a piece of magic for Lacazette. Doesn't bear thinking about. Just a bog average mid table side

This team is just so ordinary. And as I write that Bellerin scores

Iwobi has played much better today. There is still much room for improvement though. The build up to the goal was much faster than the normal Arsenal play.

Jack on for Xhaka would improve the game. Maybe either Theo or Eddie too..................
