Useless non existent defending again. We looked scared of them and defeated even before we took the lead. How a club of our supposed stature can concede 4 goals like that in one half of football is beyond me. The whole defence needs sacking and rebuilding. Utterly useless.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not sure we have moved much forward - how did Palace / Leicester / CARDIFF get on away to Pool? Just seeing where I set my expectations as every man and his dog knew the defence needed sorting - have we improved?

29 Dec 2018 18:59:34
Also - where is the effort and pride and winning mentality

We couldn’t pass 5 yards to a green shirt.

The honeymoon is over and it's back down to earth with a bang.
Our defence has been awful for years but our mentality was better in the first half of the season, now it's time for Dick to show us he won't put up with this kind of performance and use January to make his point both with ins and outs.
100,000 % behind you Dick, be brave Be strong be ruthless and you can start by playing Lacasette for 90 minutes and Stop giving the captaincy to the least committed players too, what ever your reasons they haven't worked out.

Many many questions and decisions to justify / answer

Should have been ruthless day 1.

Im pretty sure Dick wants to play three at the back, for me forget any other position until next summer, go out and buy two top players to play in defence. Apart from outing xhaka, that is the biggest problem, defence. The team actually is pretty well set up for three at the back but it needs some decent defenders and quick. As you say gunner 1000000% behind Dick but he needs to get pushy with the owner and get what he needs. We need to at least stay in touch with the top four.

Absolute crap. Have we really progressed? Truthfully? No passion or fight - poor tactics - poor passing - no defence and not starting a Laca! Come on Emery, still behind you but earn your check buddy and sort this shower out.

29 Dec 2018 19:26:40
We didn't want change for changes sake we wanted a different Arsenal to the one Arsene kept giving us season after season after season after season, this is Dicks first humiliation and it needs to be the last for a long long time.
Love ya Dick but you've got to give us better than what we'd already had more than enough of 5 years ago.

He should have purchased 3 good Centrebacks - simple

He played safe and F’d up - just my opinion and not one I just adopted recently.

29 Dec 2018 19:45:00
Totally think Dick is the right man Steve no doubt about it in my mind but in reality it's irrelevant what I think it's only relevant what actually happens on the pitch.
I'm not up for another 5 years of groundhog with a different man playing the lead role, we saw a different Arsenal under Dick initially with effort commitment passion that we hadn't seen for years but that's now looking like a novelty that's now worn off?
Time will tell, I can take losing no problem but I want effort commitment passion and fight even when we lose.

Why did we just swap one attacker ( PEA - top scorer ) for Laca when chasing the game and why didn’t Kos start and Laca also? Crap tactics and tired of the treatment of Laca - why won’t you start them both up front?

29 Dec 2018 20:15:19
It's a mystery SY, play Pea and Lacasette or make sure you win without doing so, strange decisions are fine when all goes well but when it doesn't your asking for pressure.

29 Dec 2018 20:40:42
I am getting pissed off with Emery. Not ruthless enough based on what was required at the time, team lacks passion and work rate, defence no better and he was gifted the attack. I will give him time but I would be more forgiving if he actually made some big decisions in the one area everyone except Wenger knew we needed to sort - bloody defence. His tactics seem odd and he needs to get nasty and quick. He can’t do anything at the moment - paying for his mistakes now. He just must show he’s learned this window. Lack of cover in defence is his own dumb ass fault.
Teams way below us will put up better fights at Anfield. I know I am a bad loser but he’s really pissed me off.

29 Dec 2018 21:02:15
Your patience never lasted very long Sy. Rome wasn't built in a day.

29 Dec 2018 21:26:25
If I see decisiveness and improvements - very patient.

That’s what the rebuild required with an aging injury ridden under performing club

If he had bought 3 quality young CBs then that would have shut me up especially with Torreira.

Why didn't Kos start!
Didnt you see him running in quicksand when he came on? His legs have gone!
