We need a shake up - show some balls Freddie. Hopefully you kicked in a door or two after that performance

Why do we need a Hollywood clown as a centre back - waste of space. Gives the ball away, falls asleep, gives away a goal a game and doesn't defend. Our worst player and that's saying something.

Get rid. 911 - please tell me you see this now?

Papa, Luiz, Mustafi - must go.

Bellerin needs to sort himself out

Granit and Torriera need to protect the back four or be sold. Discipline and more discipline.

Willock needs time as does Matteo.

Need to figure out how to play our forwards and get the bill forward quicker but not by 🤡 punting it forward as if we are Wimbledon. Granit needs to stop it also.

We need that energy we had for 20 mins in that game and we need structure. Drop them if they don't protect Leno - that's their job.

We need to sign a big CDM and a big CD in the Jan window. Two experienced LEADERS and make the CD captain as PEA isn't a leader or a captain.

Bring Keown in if Per is too quiet - we need to get our mojo back. I'm back to bring pissed off again because of my stupid club . I wish the players got half as angry as me abd showed half the effort I put into my job 5 days a week

I want to see train hard - defending drills and playing as a unit. Want to see someone loosing their rubbish with the defence and making them afraid to come off the pitch if they are having a poor game.

I want to see more triangles and quick passing to utilise our fast attackers. We used to counter attack at some speed when we had Cole, Robbie and Henry - now it's so laboured and no one making intelligent runs. Bellerins wack and out run the defender is quite childish.

Stop oissing around with it at the back and show for your team mate.

Man up guys or sod off - the cannons are heavy but not if you put the effort in

Freddie - be brave and be proud. Don't hide or be afraid of making tough decisions. We know you love our club.

Firstly, we need to appoint an experienced manager as soon as possible.
Coaches with zero management experience should be ruled out, so no to Freddie and Arteta.
Vieira hasn’t been a success as a manager, Nice are currently 14th in the French League so no.
Allegri reportedly won’t return to management mid-season, so no.
The managers I would consider, not in order:
Pochettino, Benitez, Rodgers and Nuno (Wolves) . I do not know many of the foreign managers, so others may be suitable. Of these managers Pochettino is the stand out candidate as he is available, although I understand he is eyeing the Man U job, so we need to move fast.
All I know is that team needs leadership and quick, as we could easily end up in a relegation battle, shocking as it may sound.

Can't disagree with any of that I'm afraid. I think this might be beyond Ljungberg though. This is the kind of mess that relegation battling managers get hired for. Bring in Benitez I reckon and do it soon.

Freddie has nowhere near enough experience, actually he hasn’t any, has he? To be able to turn this around, we need someone with PL experience and very quickly.

Nuno and Rogers would be crazy to give up what they have for what we can offer them in return and Poch is about as likely to join Arsenal a Lionel Messie is, no matter how many times you say his name it won't change his feelings on managing a direct rival of his old club or make him risk his reputation for what we have to offer him in playing staff or behind the scenes.
We are in very very serious trouble anf we genuinely can not afford to get our next appointment badly wrong.
This team is by far the worst I can ever remember seeing in Arsenal shirts, not the worst individuals but the worst ever team.
We can point out individuals who are not good enough and individuals who are talented but football isn't an individual sport it's a team sport and as a team we are done and dusted, players need moving on favorites as well as less popular simply because the weak mentality runs so deep within the squad.
We need 13x points from somewhere just to try again next season and the last 9 games show 13 points isn't a formality despite having 23 games to get them.

It’s good to hear Freddie say

We’re disappointed to lose at home. The main thing is we didn’t show up in the first half. We were very passive and we had a chat at half-time, made a tactical change and all of a sudden we looked like a team. For 20 minutes or so we really pushed them, scored goals and thought we could win the game, but VAR was correct. That’s how we have to play the whole game. I said to the players that you can’t give away a whole half to any team in the Premier League. That’s what we need to learn from. ”

He’s had 2 training sessions which is hard and he goes on to say

“Like I said against Norwich, if you score the first goal you don’t have to chase the game, you don’t have to open up as much because you can control the game so that’s something that, in my opinion, we need to change that a little bit. We won the balls but you’re right, when they ran at us it often ends with a shot on target. We’ve had one training session but we’ll keep on working. “

So he sees it, has had no time to correct it. Organised them effectively at HT BUT does he have it in his locker to dig us out of it and is Per the right man by his side. Think Per is too passive when Freddie has no experience.

Get Keown in as Freddie doesn’t stand a chance on his own and were in trouble. Not convinced we will rush into making a manager decision so at least get him the support and a new CB and CDM.
