I have observed that we give too many back passes which gives the opposition enough confidence to close us down. There was no urgency in the team, played with no pace, no power, no desire and we didn't win loose balls. We were simply too slow and this has happen the story in our last 3 games. It will take sometime to see change but there are some things we can do ourselves to bring change like working on the my observations before bring in the right players.

We also seem to be cheap with the ball - giving away sloppy easy passes which then put us under pressure in defence due to a counter attack and us being out of position.

Lots of positives though in the other matches but we seemed to have dipped a little while the 22 game run patched over some big cracks.

Once we get a solid back line - it will be very interesting.

The other piece I don’t get - how does a player like Iwobi come on as a sub to turn the game on it’s head ( a month or so ago ) , to then start and completely stink the next game up. It’s like Emery can’t start a game or motivate the players but can with a halftime team talk / subs. language must still be a challenge but I love the green shoots but still get concerned with how he starts games plus use of a Laca as well as our budget to make the changes I believe he will desire.

I think SY if we do stop doing the back passes and pass forward, we will be able to provide more services to our strikers. And then we must work on moving into spaces when we are attacking because we seem to be short of ideas because we are too stagnant, less movements which results in the silly back passes. Whatever happened to our quick one touch passes and combinations.

I think we in transition Willy from trying to score the perfect goal every time to becoming an effective as well as an attractive outfit.
180 months passed between invincibles to Arsene and Arsenal parting company without one serious title challenge it's going to take more than 4 months for Dick to put that right.
Last seasons Arsenal were the worst Arsenal side many fans can ever remember while even us oldies have to go back to the early 70s to remember a worse Arsenal team that what Dick inherited.
We all want instant solutions mate its human nature but in reality it's going to take us all more than a week for to lose the two stone we put on over the Christmas period :-)
The rebuilding of Arsenal is going to be a middle distance race at best and marathon at worst but it definitely won't be a sprint.

Used to love the quick roll out to Cole / Pires, 12 seconds later Henry shooting.
