Palace Tonight.

A good 3 points.
Expected Palace to really go at us but in fairness we mostly bossed the game.
Should have scored more.

Thought Sanchez was star man tonight.
2 good goals.
Tracked back.
And actually celebrated with rest of team for the Mustafi goal.

I'm probably one of the few who hopes he stays.
He can make things happen and can actually score goals.

If he does go we definitely won't replace him with another top class player.

And Lacazette certainly isn't the answer.
He looks totally pi*sed off now as it is.

It is fair if Sanchez left. I will totally understand it. He is the only world-class player in our team.

Wenger can buy ronaldo,messi,neymar and will still not win anything now. If i was in Sanchez's place then i would def leave. He deserves to win trophies which can't happen under wenger. If Sanchez was in a club like Spurs then we would expect him to leave and unfortunately currently tottenham is a better team than us.


Wenger is an extremely selfish person. I have 0 respect for him anymore. He has disrespected his own legacy because he didn't want to leave an easy job with a premium package.

He has destroyed Arsenal as a club in the last few years. We are a laughing stock now.

Alexis scored two and worked his socks off but he was dogshit on the ball.

We play the worst, most boring, predictable football going. Absolute snore.

I thought Jack had a good game with a memorable assist for Sanchez, we got close to blowing it but steadied the ship. Our defence is poor and it reflects in the goal diff.
This is not a team heading for the top four in May



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

Didn't think Wilshere's assist was all that. Alexis's first touch made it.

I knew you'd be crying along with the other Ramsey fanboys!

If you don't think it "was all that," then you don't understand the game!

The weight of the pass is what made the goal, it was a top drawer pass!

Jack played well for me and no question about Alexis, but he has to go.

How Hector and Granit still start is beyond me.

Feel bad for Alexander, just can't catch a break and can't play full game.

I dislike Xhaka as much as anyone but I thought he was alright last night for the most part.

It was a good pass. One we expect midfielders to make given their role, especially in that kind of space. Let's not get over excited. And I say that as a huge Wilshire fan.

I'm not saying it wasn't "good", I'm just not losing my sh8t over it. The touch made it. I thought Wilshere was our best player personally. Worked hard, showed good feet and used the ball well. Fitness will improve as well, if he stays here long enough...

Will get on with the player ratings.

Stop talking rubbish. Our football may be boring to us as Arsenal fans because we changed tactics and have been used to better football, but we're still the best passing team in the league by far. If you think we're boring then start watching your other favourite team week after week to see what is boredom. I get bored watching every other team in the league too, especially Manchester City, so what are you saying?

Arsenal only need two elements in the team to retain their title as the most exciting team in modern history, a top striker like Henry and a world class ball winner in the middle. Those two elements would change a lot for us.

Jack was our best player, Sanchez only worked hard and scored, but Jack was the creator who even worked harder. Jack was also consistently good.

You're a mentalist. Best passing team, hilarious. City actually pass with intent and are far more exciting to watch. In fact most of the top teams are more exciting to watch, our football is sluggish and predictable.

Madness. We need more than "two elements", we need multiple, starting with a better manager.

"Good football" is clearly subjective, but I personally find our football painfully boring most of the time. I only enjoy "passing football" if it is done quickly and with intent, like how City are running away with the league, otherwise it is a snore-fest and incredibly easy to defend against. Our slow, sideways passing is no better than Mourinho's "parking the bus", as far as I am concerned.

I like football best when it is played at a high speed, attacking football, but as I'm getting older I've really started to appreciate quality defending as well. That's quality defending, not conceding five goals in our last two games.

Arsenal are generally awful to watch. This season has been a shambles. The players aren't actually that bad, a quality manager would get sn extra 10 points out of this lot.

Xhaka played well last night as did Lacazette.

When you say the players aren't that bad you forgot who signed them. You also forget that no player has been better elsewhere than they were under Wenger, the latest is Chamberlain.

What utter tripe.

Szczesny went on loan and ripped it up in Serie A and is now the replacement for one of the greatest keepers of all time.
Gabriel went to Valencia after being pretty poor here and has taken a team who nearly got relegated to 4th in the league
Gnarly had such a good season Bayern Munich bought him

Ox is starting to put together a few decent performances now, he's only been there 3 months and he's scored 3 goals already, making it his 3rd best ever season for goals so f.uck off!

Szczesny left because of disciplinary issues and other issues off the field. Before then he had won one or two golden gloves in the league with us. Whatever he's doing now is normal considering that goalkeepers improve with age.

Gabriel being in a Valencia team that is doing relatively better than before doesn't automatically translate to him being better than he was at Arsenal.

Gnabry was very good playing for us but only had issues with injury. After then he wanted to go somewhere else where he would get regular first team football. Today he's still playing for a bottom half team and still not good enough to play for Bayern yet.

AOC has been rubbish so far, and three goals hasn't changed that at all. It seems your short memory has made you forget that he was so good at Arsenal we sold him for 40 million.

All the players you've mentioned here only proves my earlier point. Wenger has been at Arsenal for over 20 years, yet see the names you can come up with.
