Player Ratings vs. Forest

Ospina - 6. Made some good saves in the first half. Not great on the first goal but couldn't have done much more with the others.

Debuchy - 4. Got forward well a few times but was caught out of position a lot and made no effort to get back.
Mertesacker - 3. Ran ragged by an 18 year old.
Holding - 3. Got worse as the game went on.
Maitland-Niles - 5. Decent first half, linked up well with Nelson, but little impact in the second.

Elneny - 3. Offered nothing defensively or going forward.
Willock - 2. Completely overran. Absolutely no impact.

Walcott - 3. Apart from the free kick that led to Mertesacker's goal he did absolutely nothing.
Iwobi - 4. Thought he looked better when he dropped deeper but still nowhere near good enough.
Nelson - 5. Lively first half but thought he had a sh*t second half.

Welbeck - 4. "Scored" but was abysmal otherwise. Just look at the difference between him and Brereton today.

Subs:

Nketiah - 4. Should've scored that chance he made himself.
Akpom - 3. Should've done a lot better with his chance.

A heavily rotated team with no manager on the touchline and no game-changing substitutes. Another absolute shocker to further tarnish Wenger's already well-tarnished legacy. Although the young players weren't exactly much better, the "senior" players were really, really bad.

The only positive I can think of is that the FA Cup has papered over the cracks for Wenger in recent years. At least now he has nothing to hide behind when we get knocked out of the Europa League and finish sixth.

Wenger out!

I am tempted to retract my "Ospina not great on the first goal" statement, jesus christ...

Welbeck and Iwobi truly are atrocious.

Can't believe he moved Gnabry on and yet persists with Iwobi.

Never understood people who have ever rated Welbeck. He was awful at United, he's even worse here.

Shambolic all round.

He was atleast dangerous. No one else did anything. What is it about Neilson that everyone loves?

That sums up Wenger's approach to defending.

Nothing Ospina could do today with that lot in front of him

From buying Walcott in 2006, the entire team is hand-picked and nurtured by Arsene Wenger.
What a bunch of crap.

In a matter of months we've gone from having a) never finished below Spurs, b) never finished outside of the top four, and c) never gone out of the FA Cup in the 3rd round, to having done all of those things.

Agree Neilson is poor.
And still can't see what people see in AMN.
He is terrible at defending.

Just curious, why did we play so many reserve players?

No other big club did.

Nobody is that great at defending the entire team. Barring coquelin and maybe ramsey there isn't anyone except the defenders that can even win the ball back.

This was of course a shambolic team led by a passenger like elneny in midfield. Mertesacker was shocking in a back 2 as expected.

Massively disrespectful to my favourite competition. Deserved to go out to a team who wanted it more. A team by the way who are absolutely dreadful in the championship.

Disgusted isn’t the word.
How is that old fool still employed.

I was saying this before Christmas after the Southampton game (I think) but Mertesacker already looks like he has completely given up on being a footballer.

I was all for selling Gabriel because there was no way Gabriel was ever going to become good enough here, but selling him without bringing anyone else in was always going to be a mistake.

We really need to get rid of the following squad players and get better alternatives.

1. Mohamed Elneny - only thing he can do is pass the ball sideways and backwards. Sell
2. Iwobi - tries to be too clever and think that he is Messi. Sell
3. Mertascaker - Will retire and be gone at the end of the season. Retire
4. Holding - Need to loan him out to get more game time and experience. Loan
5. Debuchy - Need to be more committed. He can still be a very useful player if he can settle the differences with the manager. Sell
6. Chambers - @#$%& average. Sell
7. Walcott - Headless chicken. Sell
8. Welbeck - Garbage. Sell

Are people still thinking a change of playing personnel is going to change it all?

A change of personnel can change it. We were Betsey inspite of wenger as a manager because we had better players.

We kept replacing them with @#$%& and now we have regressed to a, level that is noticeable by all and sundry.

We were a better team when sanchez had just arrived than we are now
