Player Ratings vs. Cardiff

Cech - 4. Really shaky today. Not comfortable at all playing out from the back.

Bellerin - 5. Adventurous going forward but unimpressive defensively.
Mustafi - 6. Scored a great header. Not great defensively.
Sokratis - 5. Poor.
Monreal - 5. Adventurous going forward but poor defensively. Lost his man for both Cardiff goals.

Guendouzi - 5. Mixed bag today.
Xhaka - 5. Assist for our opener but ridiculous giveaway led to Cardiff's first equaliser.

Ozil - 5. Didn't even notice him playing in the first half. Second half was an improvement. Involved in Aubameyang's goal.
Ramsey - 6. Good first half. Put a shift in but not particularly effective in the second half. Again I'm not seeing a £200k p/w player.
Aubameyang - 6. Great finish but didn't do a lot else. Pretty useless unless he's within scoring distance.

Lacazette - 8. Best player today. Could tell he wanted it. Hit the post, made one, scored one.

Subs:

Torreira - 6. Made a big difference coming on. Has to start.
Welbeck - N/A. Not on long.
Mkhitaryan - N/A. Not on long.

Missed the first 15 minutes so ratings are from that point onwards.

Tale of two@#$%&defences, but one of those@#$%&defences has about £100 million worth of striking talent ahead of them.

Get off Ramsey dick! He didn't put in a shift he was glory hunting and just standing upfront most of the game.

Higher mark than Ozil, don't think so. Torreira done more than him in a short time too!

Do you not like Ramsey or something?

Nothing so say about Monreal?

Why would any Arsenal fan like Ramsey he's shite!

The only thing I've got to say about Monreal is he's not playing in the championship, unlike Gibbs!

Re Cech he is one of the Premier League's all time great keepers but he is 36 and it is silly to expect him to pick up playing out from the back when it isn't something he's ever done before.

Get Leno in.

Warnock on Arsenal's full-backs: "I thought their full backs were as poor as they've been when you look at the games they've had this season. We had some great chances today.

Spot on.

Cardiff had 14 attempts on goal with 28% possession, to Arsenal’s 15 with 72% possession.

Very worrying.

Yes.
If we continue at the back like we are we are going to get a right thrashing one game.

Our defending is worse than ever if it continues we could struggle for a top ten finish.This is nothing to do with time because it's not hard to be organised Maybe the personell we have are just not good enough.



A shadow of what we were

Ramsey certainly wasn't great today.

Don't feel like rating anyone. maybe just Laca who gets an 8. No, Ramsey wasn't great, he wasn't even good. Nobody was really except Torreira whose introduction was crucial.

The first half the players were playing like they were having a Sunday kick about, just strolling and passing it around, smiling, there were no sense of urgency, no drive. Slightly better in the second half. We need to take a leaf from the way Liverpool drive forward.
And what happened to our supposed pressing?

8 goals conceded in 4 games, that's an average of 2 per game. At that rate, we're on course for 76 over the entire season, which, of course, is unsustainable.

Cech and Xhakha must be removed from the starting XI ASAP. (Mustafi too, but there's no reliable alternative at the moment).

We need Mustafi's goals(Sm20)



- 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.

Its still mostly Wenger's players trying to play someone else's style.

Our combination of full backs, centre backs and holding midfielders is a recipe for disaster.
