The fact we can't get a lead at half time now needs addressing, a team can't keep coming from behind as often as we have and expect it to last. I am a bit surprised with the personell we had today we didn't play 4 at the back, we had many players out of position, 4 at the back would have been at the most 1, a center back. We had a center back a left and a right back on the pitch at the start. I understand the problem because of the injuries and suspensions but it didn't work today.

I agree Steve the formation given the personal we had available was unusually niave by Dick.
You wouldn't try and play 4 4 2 if you had only 1 or no strikers available.
The strange thing is we didn't start playing 3 at the back until a few weeks ago so it's not as if we don't know how to play any other way.
Hey Dick like the team was due a bad day so it's hardly a big issue just a slightly puzzling one given all the evidence before kick off suggested it didn't look the most viable option available.

I agree, I said to a mate in the morning, we can’t keep being a second half team. It needs sorting and quickly, let's be honest we have been spoilt, who would have thought we’d have gone on such a run? The disappointment is I didn’t expect it to be Southampton who ended it.

To be fair and absolutely no excuses because Southampton deserved their 3pts but yesterday was probably the worst time for us to go there, it was their first home game under a new manager which usually brings out the best in a struggling team and their fans plus our already less than reliable defence was seriously depleted, we still could a should have done better but it's a well forgivable bad day at the office for us.

G62 me old mucked, I agree with you on some of the changes but a 22 game unbeaten run has us innnnnnn 5th. 🤔

We have let in 6 less goals than that pile of red 💩 in Manchester whom we also managed to draw with.

I’m in need of more convincing before I settle into the Yahoo club. 🤷‍♂️.

And I can totally understand why Stoner mate, but for me personally Dick has already given me back my interest and excitement about Arsenal again simply because he's done what I needed to see most, the dismantling of the cosy club and given us a return of effort passion and commitment.
United are where we were before Dick arrived with a huge question mark over their effort commitment and passion, whether we finish 4th 5th or where ever we only have to look at this United team to see a reflection of our old selves and how far we've come in a very short space of time.
If I was a united fan I'd look at Arsenal and be full of hope that things can be turned around if they bring in the right man instead of going for the biggest names who will spend their money like water without any garentee of success.
