wow... people on this forum are sooo short sighted.. some people are actually starting to blame Conte now.. im would be laughing at these statements, if it wanst so tragic and immature.

we have great players on tis team and arsenal were great just better on the day- get over it.

congrats to the gunners and looking forward to the next game. goodnight

With the 3 at the back formation, maybe this was the time for Baba Rahman to shine(unless you sold him)

Baba Alonso Luiz Zouma Azpi

Would of been a solid back line, and also would have provided with serious attacking play...

On another note, I know you guys are annoyed with Conte right now, but once everything clicks, this team will be firing. Also think that Hazard in the 10 role or the position Fabregas)Oscar have been playing, might be the best position for this system
Also we see why Cesc won't have much playing here when he isn't in form which is the majority of the season he is a liability to have on the pitch.

His bad outweighs the good (and his only good for a month or two) which is why I don't care if he leaves in January
Cesc is the only player in this team that can create a good goal scoring chance, the only other player is our defender Luiz. when we are playing Kante and Matic i expected us to win any loose ball back but Matic always left Kante exposed.
He is the only player because Jose shipped every creative player we had out of london but Cesc is still not good consistently he can be a useless body on the pitch.
Conte should be looking for other options in transfer market and if that means cesc has to go then so be it
before then he needs to play often, the only reason Jose shipped out all our creative players is because of Oscar not Cesc.
I have been saying this for so long, but I agree. Love his professionalism, but Conte was right to use him conservatively. You either build the team around him (and then suffer when he inevitably fails or has ananonymous game against a big team) OR you use him as a super-sub/squad player. He is not consistent or well rounded enough to be in the first team. Central midfield needs massive overhaul, Kante was only the start. (Play Nate pls Conte)
Don't know why it's taking Conte this long to figure out that Cahill Luiz won't work he can be stubborn at times which has cost him in Europe at Juventus.

Very obvious for everyone that Cahill should be dropped and Ivan Luiz should play with natural fullbacks until Terry or Zouma is fit to play.

i dont want to read any tweets like
"We played well but very unlucky, we will bounce back"
you all should hang your heads in shame except for Kante and Costa.
This what Willian does every fu*in game.

1. Sprint with the ball for 20-30 yards and then stop to turn around and pass the ball to Ivan, move to wards center

2. play some training ground pass with Ivan on the right and then putting a low cross which wont get pass first defender.

He will perform well against smaller teams and hold his player for another 10 games and partner Ivan on the right to prolong our misery
+1
In as much as i want Moses to start ahead of him in some games but i dont think he is our main problem, our defense is the real problem. conceding 13 goals in 8 matches is too bad for a top team.
Not trying to blame him for defeat....but its true that he is wasteful in attack and only a work horse who can press and win the ball back at best.

Look how all the top teams have goal scoring players on the wings...Sterling , Nolito , Mane , Couthino etc.

Hazard is so overrated...guys cant even show consistency for 3-4 games and on top of that we have players.

Costa will get frustrated and lose his form or do something stupid very soon
why cant Conte play him in three man midfield along side Kante and Cesc.
Has he ever scored against a good team?

He's so useless in attack for all his ball carrying ability, because he never actually makes a good decision with it.
Cahill really made the same mistake in 3 straight games, how is that even possible

The one against Swansea was a foul obviously, but he turned backwards and held onto the ball for no reason.
+1
He even went on to post how he dint get the foul ...when he clearly should not hold the ball and invite pressure like that.

Dont know if he has balls to post a sorry message to fans today
+1
i dont want to read any sorry message from any player, they should post their message on the pitch.
Conte said: "I think that we didn't have the right attitude from the first minute.

"After today we are thinking we must work a lot because we are a great team only on paper. It is always a team problem rather than individuals, When nothing works it is very hard for a player to play well.

"I don't want to talk about the mistake [from Gary Cahill]. It is not right for the player. We win and lose as a team. If someone thinks this team is ready to fight, I think we must wait to improve a lot to come back a great team on the pitch, not just on paper.

"We have not got the balance and now is the moment to consider everything. It is incredible to concede three goals. We must have last season present in our mind to not repeat the mistakes. We must reflect a lot to find very soon the right way."


To Conte's point about having last season present in our mind...we are playing with exact same 11 with only Kante being the change. If he Wenger can start youngsters like Iwobi against big teams, I dont see any reason why Chalobha, Moses and Aina cant.
"we don't have balance" despite playing 2 DM's lol.

I'll say it again the formation is part of the problem, this team is used to 4231 for so many seasons now. Matic can't play CM in 4141, neither can Oscar.
Think it could work with Luiz and Kante, Matic is not good on the ball.

I agree this formation is not working with these players so either change the formation or the selection
+1
keep your heads up guys the season is still early, you have a good squad good luck for the rest of the season :)
thanks guy, i think we have a great team on paper.
Well for Conte
"if you wont grow some BALLS and make some big decision then Roman will do it for you"
+1
roman do it!
plastic fans make me sick - go read the Sun or something.
