Can't wait to see Lacazette combine with Sanchez next week!
Yeah, especially we will facing Liverpool with the return of coutinho
it will be a high scoring game
Well I hope next week Alexis is still at the emirates
hard to be a fan sometimes, you wait all week to get disappointed
hard to be a fan. harder being a gunner.

indeed Tomi
So many questions about the team setup today.

-Ox and Bellerin switch flanks at wingback. Why not drop bellerin from the line up and play Kolossus at left wingback and include an Mertesacker as the central 3 defender?

-Subbing off Kolasinac and putting on Giroud, I get the tactic of adding another attacker, but now we play with a back 4 with Bellerin and Ox playing out of position. Should've kept Kolasinac on as LB - Monreal - Mustafi - Bellerin and taken off either Welbz or Ozil.

Credit to stoke though for playing a good game. We could've had a pen or 2 but also could've seen Mustafi out for a few games with that challenge...Definitely a game to forget about.
Aw just dont have the guts to drop bellerin. He is weak for many games. Monreal or sead should play lwb and ox should play rwb. AW sub sead with Walcott is beyond me. I do hope giroud play this game, his domnance in the box would help alot. Xhaka just blew my trust on him. Ozil missing in the game as well, more like xhaka did the oz job more than ozil himself. I would rather use his demand to double up for Alexis. Mustafi, sigh!! he can't lead defense by himself.
Lol Wenger sub Ozil that is not going to happen in million years bro, I suspect there is clause in Ozil contract that states the coach can't sub him, no matter the poor performance of the day except for on field injury.
Can't drop Ozil especially after spending 5 hrs in the hair salon.
What's new pussycat whoa oh

weakest midfield we've had in awhile, actually we havent had a midfield since Santi's injury..Ramsey wasn't too bad though come to think of it.
No he was surprisingly very on point today which is great to see. My problem with the trio of Ozil, Ramsey, Xhaka is that they all want to do the same thing. They all want the ball and they all want to make the assist. I'm not sure Ozil even knows what to do anymore. He's becoming less of a player here.
Ozil needs Sanchez
Arsenal needs Sanchez too :/
Shay is on point on Ramsey ozil and xhaka. Damn, I kinda saw xhaka tried more than ozil in the game
+1
With Xhaka's inconsistent "ability" to play long balls pretty much nullifies the role of Ozil. I honestly don't mind it b/c it makes us more direct and not so boring of sideways passing and possession, but damn the guy gave the ball away too much. I thought Ozil's strength was supposed to come out in these games where defenses pack it in. He's supposed to be the visionary to find that slippery ball through the wall of orcs.
Let's buy one more left back and play them all as CBs. And some more RBs and play them as left wingers.There is no patience or build up play. Thats what happens when you ask players to play wherever you like.

And course we concede the goal in the first minute of second half as always. Never change arsenal. Analyse the mistakes of last season - whats that?
+2
I really cannot understand what's going on in Wenger's mind before and during this whole match.
' not convinced by central defense today' - wenger

No s**t. Left Per, holding, chambers on bench because too afraid to change the half-assed combination from last winning game.
we really need to sign a new cm to replace xhaka. giving goal away in first game and now again ?
+1
you never praise him when he done well.. only fuming at his mistakes
Yeah, but we also need to score. I wouldn't have been happy with 0-0 either.
+2
the problem is we just recently signed him for £35M... I said he's a flop last season and I was bashed for it and now he starts new season with giving away two goals. He was signed as Cazorla replacement and he fails entirely.
+2
He wasnt signed as Cazorla replacement
We should not replace Xhaka but give him a different role...He's not the defensive-minded midfielder we thought we were getting. Some games I'd like to see him with another big midfielder next to him who actually is a holding midfielder so Xhaka can continue to spray his passes, but not be the glue between defense and attack.
I did. Said quite sometimes, good long range passer, with some great vision. But lack of awareness and bad discipline cost us more than when he did good. I know he is xgoon and your favourite player, cover him whenever possible. I mentioned every player not just him when they did error like Ramsey, monreal, cech and mustafi. Not only xhaka. I dont hate him like u had towards Campbell or coq. But he just make the same mistake in game one again.
why bring Walcott for Lacazette???
banter
+1
I have so many questions on the line-up and substitutes in today's match...


Monreal is not suitable in the middle of 3 CBs. I believe that was partially the cause of Stoke's goal.

Bellerin is absolute crap on the left and Wenger keeps him there even when the formation is switched back to 4 defenders. Kolasinac out. What the heck???

All substitutes are useless and only show desperation. Same old Wenger.
Monreal to blame for the goal?

Xhaka gives the ball away and instead of shielding, he goes off try to win it and Mustafi just ball watches and gives Barahino soo much space (not engaging the attacking player enough).
+1
I dont say Monreal was the only one to blame. Xhaka and Mustafi were obviously worse. But in that goal Monreal failed to follow and intervene with Jese scoring, didn't he? I mean he lacks the qualities needed for a last defender standing before the goal there.
Definitely give you that Monreal hesitated slightly.
It seems to me lacazzete is an excellent finisher. And only that :(. doesn't have build up play, dribbling, ... in his game.
+1
I thought he did good in build up plays.
+2
me to . . . :( but nothing seemed to come off in general for us today.
He muscled off Shawcross most of the game while maintaining possession allowing our team to move further up the pitch. It's his second game man, you have no clue what he's about yet.
His movement ahead of the ball is great. Once the midfield get more used to him and put it ahead of him for him to run onto a bit more he'll look a lot better.
one peno and one goal not given. Refs f*****g us all over AGAIN
doesn't matter we sucks so much
+3
well I think we created enough to win this match. It wasn't that s**t performance we were used to.
+1
one stupid mistake cost us
