Player Ratings vs. Atletico II

Ospina - 4. Nervous wreck in the first half. No communication, poor kicking and went down too quickly for Costa's goal. Made one good save in the second half.

Bellerin - 4. At fault for the Costa goal. Useless going forward.
Mustafi - 6. Troubled by Atletico's pace but managed to get by.
Koscielny - 5. Only played 10 minutes but was still pretty poor up against Costa. Arsenal career over?
Monreal - 4. Got forward a lot and saw a lot of the ball, but crossing/ final ball was poor.

Xhaka - 4. Range of passing wasn't good enough.
Ramsey - 6. Probably our best player for the first hour but went to pot after that. Tired and sloppy.

Ozil - 4. Couple of good spells in each half but nowhere near a £350k p/w player. Not enough of an impact.
Wilshere - 5. Okay but didn't influence the game.
Welbeck - 4. Looked asleep in the first half. No impact in the second half.

Lacazette - 4. Worked hard off the ball but little impact.

Subs:

Chambers - 7. Stretched but did really when he came on. Stopped Costa and Griezmann scoring a couple of times.
Mkhitaryan - 5. One good chance.

Got into some great positions tonight but we never even looked remotely like scoring. Saw loads of the ball over the two legs but have nothing to show for it. Nowhere near good enough. I think Atletico have been pretty poor over the two legs as well, but the tie was settled by two rubbish pieces of defensive play. Sums Wenger's Arsenal up.

Season over.

How useful could Giroud and Walcott have been over these two legs, by the way? Someone to aim for in the box and pace/ dribbling out wide.

Only one shot on target the whole game SUMS it all.

Walcott no no, but Giroud would have been plan B



- 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.

Ospina - 4. Nervous wreck in the first half. No communication, poor kicking and went down too quickly for Costa's goal. Made one good save in the second half. Sell him.

Bellerin - 3. At fault for the Costa goal. Useless going forward. Not one cross found an Arsenal player. Sell him.

Mustafi - 6. Troubled by Atletico's pace but managed to get by.

Koscielny - 5. Only played 10 minutes but was still pretty poor up against Costa. Arsenal career over?

Monreal - 4. Got forward a lot and saw a lot of the ball, but crossing/ final ball was poor.

Xhaka - 6. Range of passing wasn't good enough. But the glue that holds up midfield and a decent shield in the middle.

Ramsey - 5. Exposed his limitation when playing against an organized team - a blind alley runner trying to dribble passed 3 defenders and poor range of passing and decision-making.

Ozil - 4. Couple of good spells in each half but nowhere near a £350k p/w player. Not enough of an impact. Simply that is not enough runners and intelligent players running into channels like Costa.

Wilshere - 5. Okay but didn't influence the game.

Welbeck - 4. Looked asleep in the first half. No impact in the second half.

Lacazette - 4. Worked hard off the ball but little impact. Useless without a good first toucha dn closed control like Giroud.

Subs:

Chambers - 7. Stretched but did really when he came on. Stopped Costa and Griezmann scoring a couple of times.

Mkhitaryan - 5. One good chance.

The story of Arsene Wenger in a brothel.
Superb foreplays, good touches, but alas, just a limp dick that lack strength to penetrate even when on Viagra.

Wenger's had plenty of chances to leave on a high. Chose to hang on and on and on, so now it has to end like this.

That's not dissimilar to my form in brothels.

Sanchez Definitely could have

He was actually good against united as well along side mavropanos. He looks more like the player albeit without pace, that celiac promise in the first 6 months of his time here before montero destroyed him at right back

Would like to see Chambers, Mavropanos and Maitland-Niles stuck in for the last three games.

(Sm6) we had more players wear the captain's armband last night than we had shots on target. Brilliant
