- 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.

Everyone is on knife edge when the ball is at Cech's feet.

WTF is Cech doing? Why insist on someone playing out from the back who simply cannot do it? We could be 2-0 already because of it.

The only good thing about that half is we started Lacca.

Doesn't look like we have a game plan.
It's just hope for something to happen..

@#$%& shite team; Cech is the worst goalkeeper in the league by a mile. Shite defence bar Monreal. Midfield awful. Ramsey and Xhaka are beyond shite. Laca upfront instead of our quickest player.

The whole thing is a joke. Welbeck, iwobi and Torreira all need to come on. Take of Ramsey Xhaka and Laca!

Cech just isn't capable to play with the ball at his feet.
But some of the balls played back to him aren't helping.

Missed the first 15 minutes but I have to say we're letting Cardiff get crosses in far too easily.

Joe Bennett is enjoying playing against Bellerin.

Yes, he is so slow and takes way too many touches. Which puts him under pressure.

At times, he needs to use common sense than giving it away in such a dangerous position.

Guendouzi and xhaka aren't good enough to be our midfield. Both are terrible at defending, both are slow, both are average on the ball so it's baffling they are still starting together when we have torriera on the bench and Ramsey playing out of position.

So many of our problems are down to the weakness in centre midfield.

Cardiff's goal came from Xhaka trying a cross field ball to Bellerin that fell short to a Cardiff player who launched the counterattack which led to the goal. A shorter pass to the long hair one is the smarter pass to keep posession with 2 minutrs left to half time.

Truly time to drop Xhaka and Cech, no reason not to.

We are struggling against a team that City crush by 4 or 5 goals.

Lacazette has to start going forward.

We are so bad defending free kicks its pathetic.

We lost a lot of away games like that over last 10 years, crowd gets on back, refs give shite decisions and the team collapsed.

Aubameyang's goal played a big part in the win and it didn't just end a run of three games without a goal for the Gabon international, it ended a run which stretched back far longer than that.

The 62nd minute strike from outside the box ended a run of 76 consecutive goals from inside the penalty area in club football for the frontman.

The last time he scored from more than 18 yards was in March 2016 when he netted for Borussia Dortmund against Spurs in the Europa League.
