Match against Milan - we were led down the primrose garden path?

Watford game exposed all our flaws to all:

1 - Lack concentration and focus and unable to press Watford throughout 90 minutes and more.

2 - Prolificacy in front of goal with both Aubameyang and Ozil missing 1-on-1.

3 - Playing out of defence and losing the balls 2 or 3 times in dangerous position.

4 - Losing the ball during attack with players out of position, open to counter-attacks.

5 - Mkhitaryan and Ozil inconsistent and gone missing when we were under pressure.

6 - We got away with it with Watford leaving their shooting boots and cojones at home.

Milan is an Italian side, compact and defensively strong with an efficient counter-attack game. They knew what they must do and knew that they can score us a sorry-looking Arsenal defence.

................................Ospina

...Bellerin ... Koscielny ... Monreal ... Kolasinac

.............Ramsey .................. WIlshere

..................Ozil.........Xhaka......Mkhitaryan

...............................Welbeck

This is our ebst team, offering no defensive shield for Back-4 and with a CF that can't even hit the barn door with a banjo; and always falling down when preparing to shoot.

I fancy them beating us 3-1 with their attacking football against our missing midfield shield in front of Back-4.

Don't think I've seen worse than having Xhaka at AM. You've topped yourself here Merl.

Can't see us fluffing this based on how bad Milan were. Not at home at least. We score one this game is completely over. I'll be there with the other 12 fans to watch it.

well remembered Sandy. Moved back last year due to the mother in law's ill health. In Nottingham now. To be honest I really disliked the atmosphere at the Camp Nou. But then I greatly disliked the Catalan people generally after a while.

Well you predicted that one right Merl, just got it the wrong way around



- 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.
