We need to get one back quick, don't want Palace getting too comfortable. Laca is getting good at these air shots.

Subs: Cech, Mkhitaryan, Torreira, Iwobi, Monreal, Nketiah, Maitland-Niles.

Really don't know why Emery decided to rotate so heavily. Too many weak links on the pitch and given Palace big hope.

I really hope we don't regret this. Today is a massive chance to 3pts and a massive step into Top4.

Ozil only one with a chance to pass forward.

We need to get at 'em with a bit of pace, knock them out of their comfort zone. all this passing about around the box is so ineffective, Palace will defend that all day.

He's basically like playing with 10men. He's only useful when you're 2-0 up or so and just want to pass the ball.

Mav, Elneny, Jenko should not be on the pitch. Palace have a good away record. Its too risky no matter how good we are at home.

that should have been a penalty, clearly used his arms to stop that ball going into the box.

Why play two center mids who offer nothing going forward at all and barely defend, Unai is way to cocky to repeat the Everton mistake, but did.

We need a bit more from Aubamayang, for god's sake just get a grip on this game.

Makes no sense man. Xhaka and Ramsey injured. So what does Unai do? Rest Torreira as well.
Just crazy arrogance and it can cost us top 4 with our poor away form. I'm frustrated.

Re: Arsenal v C. Palace
goonerred 21 April, 2019 16:48
How frustrating is it supporting Arsenal? Big chance to stake a claim for top 3 and we play like a duffers.Iwobi annoys me when he gets in a good position and gives the ball away, but at least he's prepared to run at the defence.

The lack of urgency and leadership is once again evident and really hard to watch.

Auba's having a Theo Walcott's 1st half. 70mln my a*s.

Kos shouldn't be a 'senior' cb ever.

Re: Arsenal v C. Palace

Big problem that kolasinac is our biggest attacking threat and wan bissaka has him in his pocket completely. Need to change formation and start attacking down our right hand side.

He'll probably be coming off at HT like the other games he's started. Why Emery hasn't learnt yet is anyone's guess.

Top 4 isn't over & it's still on in our hands.

Just means we'll have to win at least 2 away games now. Big chance missed today and blame falls squarely on the manager.

When you have injuries to key players, you can't rest so many other players and expect to win in the Premier league.

Season was going so well until the brainless lineup today.

Sokratis suspended? So yeah, let's rest Monreal & play Mavraponos with Mustafi.

Ramsey and Xhaka injured? I know, let me rest Torreira and play Elneny with Guendouzi in CM.

To top it all off, I'll start Jenko at rwb so we'll have no pace or attacking threat on that side.

Crazy stuff from Emery today, he has to take the blame. Complete arrogance that puts us back in a dogfight for top4 after we got lucky at Watford and would have been sitting comfortably with a win today.

Back to the drawing board.

Re: Arsenal v C. Palace
Trent2000 21 April, 2019 18:01
No one to blame but Unai, set us up to fail and did not respect the league at all.

WTF are the usual clowns doing on the feild together, just insane.

Tough road ahead to get 4th, third gone now.

If it wasn't for Man U looking awful, we could have been out of it completely.

Just unreal how we make it so hard on ourselves.

Too many poor players



- 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.

It's a squad game if you want to compete in a European competition. If you don't rotate then you'll never stay consistent.

The problem is that we have players like elneny, Mustafi and Jenkinson who take up spaces in our squad but are way below the standards required

Couldnt put it better myself, but I think he has to move Heaven and Earth not to play Elneny and Guengdouzi together again. He has to come up with another idea. Mustafi is a disgrace and shouldnt see another season at Arsenal

Anyone who saw the fight they gave city two weeks ago would have known that palace can tear any team apart. Especially with the width.

To then go and play that back line and defensive midfield was shocking. We can't say we deserve top four with those types of mistakes. It could Come down to that single game. If it does. The manager has cost us to four. No hiding from that
