Awful Vermaelen show sees Arsenal lose at QPR

Match Report

Arsenal saw their winning run ended in frustrating fashion as goals from Taarabt and Diakite came either side of Theo Walcott’s equalizer to deny Wenger’s men all the points on Saturday.

The hosts bossed the opening minutes and took the lead as their star man beat Vermaelen to hand QPR the lead. But Arsenal were back in it with their first meaningful chance of the match after 37 minutes as Theo Walcott first hit the post with a fine strike before rebounding his ricocheted effort into the net.

Arsenal now had a strong grip on the game and should have went on to win the match after the restart as Van Persie missed a one-on-one chance. And they were made to pay dearly when Vermaelen slipped at the back and allowed the teeing-up of Diakite who smashed the ball home.

The Gunners remain in third place, but with tough games on the way in weeks to come, there will be no room for awful displays like today’s.

Match Opinion

That winning streak really did not mean anything to me. At this time of the season, only the results matter, and whether it comes emphatically or not, only the results and points matter.

But dropping only three points in their last eight games means the boys have to keep their head up. They have mounted a challenge which looked impossible at the start of February and with seven games to go, anything similar will be very beneficial to their Champions League hopes next season.

There was nothing beneficial about today though, and that’s why there is that frustrating feeling around because it was not just because Arsenal had lost and gotten zero points at Loftus Road (which IS a tough place to go by the way – ask Chelsea and Liverpool who both lost there), it is the manner in which they lost that was concerning.

A majority of the players seemed complacent, as if they were saying in their heads “we will always find a way out” even when the team went behind to Taarabt’s goal. There were a lot of lazy passes and slips, and even after Walcott scored you had to feel that Arsenal needed to up their tempo or anything could happen.

And anything did happen. Vermaelen – already culpable for the concession of QPR’s opener – showed some childishness by a earning a needless yellow card for a little ‘hand bags’ moment with a QPR man, and then followed that with an inexplicable slip at a vital place and a vital point of the game to allow Mark Hughes’ side the lead.

Quite disappointing too was Arsenal’s response to that goal. QPR were hardly threatened at the back and Gervinho, sent on for Ramsey (another below par show from him), failed to make any genuine impact. In fact, apart from scoring rarely or assisting, the Ivorian seems pretty useless to the run of play. He is too flimsy on the ball, and tries to dance on it too much. Apart from that, his ability to track back and help out at the back when we lose the ball is nothing essential.

Still, the Gunners do have their fate in their own hands at this point and there are two factors in their favour. The season is running out of games, and they are the pace setters not the chasing side in terms of the race for that third/fourth place.

Every point gained will be vital to keeping that advantage.

  1. Why the fuck do we do this every time were on a good run we the fuck it right up against shit teams . Qpr 2 wins in 18 Arsenal on a good run the bam were shit they beat us and the pressure is back on . Joke !!!

  2. Why did it take so long to bring on one of the only good players we have in the Ox and keep jokes like Walcott on the pitch. Winger is useless at making decisions on the day, good at the bank balance, hopeless at transfers. We have been crap since Denis left and have yet to get real quality in midfield. I would love the opportunity to be total crap and stil earn shitloads. Looking at VP today I would say he has already left.

    1. Stop whinging, Walcott scored the ONLY game of the match you idiot. He also scored a brace against the spuds too if you remember (perhaps you suffer fro Alzheimers?).
      Vermaelen was total shite today as were MOST of the team. Seems like we are scared of Mr Barton doesn’t it?

  3. I have NEVER rated Ramsey and have been ridiculed for it. The proof is in the playing this season.
    How is it that he was played ahead of either Gervinho (more experience) or the Ox (better skills as a player by far)?
    Losing to QPR after all we have been through is embarrassing.
    And what the hell was the skipper doing through all of this????

    1. mjb & Wozzzi – Ramsey aint shit, morons. What the fuck did Gervinho do when he came on? What the fuck has Gervinho done since he arrived? Get a grip. Twats like you need to stay in your armchair and shut the fuck up!

  4. Not quite as good as they think they are!This is why new players must come into the squad.Can someone explain what Gervinho had to offer before the Ox today,given the circumstances of the situation.We also know that the game is up when Wenger pulls Chamakh off the bench.

  5. Every time ramsey starts, Vanpersie and other players gets isolated. He is better when he starts from the bench.

  6. When Ramilson is on the pitch, it is as if we are playing with only 10 men. Now seems more and more people agree with me that he is simply crap.

    Verm is terrible today.

    1. Yup. We are. Laughing at you goonies slagging off your players for one bad game. You should be getting behind them not getting at them. Bickering amongst yourselves as well. You pathetic joke of a club and fans. 3rd place and the FA cup for the mighty spurs. No trophy again for you lot.

      1. Yes we are, not cos you lost 1 game but because you’re moaning and whingeing after 7 straight wins. Viewed from several miles away, it is pathetic yet hilarious. It seems all you care about is finishing above Spurs, not yet another trophyless season. Sing when you’re winning…

      2. I have noticed you spuds are the WORST for bickering, almost as bad as newcastle fans. What I DO find interseting is the fact you are ‘hanging around’ another teams website to put the proverbial ‘boot-in’. As if you have nothing better to do.
        Our club and fans are ‘pathetic’? No. We have more trophies than you by far and we don’t go and make crass comments on your teams websites after every defeat.
        Who is more pathetic?

      3. The sad thing is that the spud IS RIGHT !!! Except for where they will finish. One bad game in eight is not too shabby. Accept it and move on. Nobody got any credit yesterday.

  7. WENGER Z SO FULL OF SHIT..WEN RAMSEY Z NOT PLAYIN WE WIN..WHY THE FUCK DOES HE KEEP ON PLAYIN..FUCK WENGER..

    1. No, FUCK YOU. Wenger has to think about so many different things, far more than you will ever have to in your little world. Sure he has made a mistake or two today but you ought to understand that he has brought us from 17th to 3rd and we are still in a position to beat the spuds and play in the CL next season.

      One mistake against a light weight team who will be relegated anyway, so what. Get a life Kevin.

  8. Blame Wenger. Ramsey left midfield???????? Walcott is useless away from home. The players got big-headed and thought they’d won before they even took the pitch. Wenger can’t motivate them, how many more times do you have to see it?

  9. Fuck this, so disapointed keepin ox off, we dont deserve to end our streak to qpr wenger needs to put the ox if we need to get back the pressure is bac on, wldn’t b surprised if we slip bac to forth come next wk.

  10. 68% possession & almost no end product. Build-up too slow, predictable combinations and Vermaelen had one of his worst games for us at CB. QPR out fought us in all the crucial battles and had a better games plan. Citeh & the Chavs both scored twice in the last 10 while we were still trying to walk the ball into the net.

  11. Dear Ryan
    Get your head out of your a—e
    Wenger simply has no tactical ability clearly shown today when we were being out played by a very poor team.
    We needed the OX to liven things up and what do we get Gerv. Simply not smart at football but very good at Maths. I have supported Arsenal for over 40 years and have never had cause to berate the Manager but we need to change sadly. Bring back David Dein and AW can stay. Without him we need a fresh apporoach.
    Hard to get behind people who get paid a fortune and put in very little effort.

    1. Dear Richard,
      Go and support Tottenham or Man Citeh.
      But PLEASE don’t clog up our websites with your sour and bile-ridden spray.

      Thanx

  12. AW should realize each time he plays Aaron, Arsenal has few chances created. He should come on after the game is won. The guy runs everywhere following the ball. Weaning team is known.

  13. richard put your head up your arse you are not a arsenal supporter more like a useless whining girl like all the rest of you sad pussys JOG ON ALL YOU NEGITIVE SAD DICKS

  14. Lets all laugh at TTottenham. Next up —
    CIty. Chelsea. Stoke Away.

    If we lose to City and Cheslea win we 5th. Lets all laught at Tottenham

    Mind teh Gap Tottenham. haha

    1. Jason
      Hard not to be negative when we play like as you say whining sad pussy’s
      First time I’ve moaned about the team in such a forum in my life and I feel with the last few years in particular this is very justified. I like many fans have supported Arsenal through many trophy less years but unfortunately Wenger does not get players to give there all.
      We miss our spine too much and capitulate to poor teams all the time now.

      1. Jason where have you been for the last seven games? where have you been for most of the season.? Yes, a few looked jaded yesterday. It Happens. AW is the best bar none, believe it.

  15. CAN SOMEONE TELL ME WHY WENGER STARTS RAMSEY IN ARSENAL GAMES? Not only is the guy no good, he has lots of badluck. He should be loaned out to a championship side, if he must remain an arsenal player. His frustrating displays affects other team members. It’s only Wenger dat does not know this.

    I’m really scared of our qualification chances now. If we lose to city and chelski wins, it will be 2 points cushion left. Who knows what will happen with chelsea, stoke, and even wolves.

    With our display today, we do not stand any chance. Even Bolton will fight better than we did today.

    Must Song continually pass the ball because people are praising him for being a great provider? Can’t he shoot? Even van persie’s form has dropped.

    God save the gunners.

  16. What. Im ana arsenel fan. Singing mind teh gap tottenham.

    They were 10 points up not they behind by 3!!! HAHA mind the gap tottenham.

    iTS BEST WE have a much harder last 7 games than them ! shows we the best.

  17. Have you heard your selfs soon as we lose you jump back on the wenger out band wagon get behind the team! I knew before the game this were going to be tricky we av just got to respond against city! COYG!

  18. I suppose you will be calling for AW out next.Ramsey is not good enough and never will be .But we are still in 3rd just

  19. I feel that Tv5 is sometimes too confident such that he always wants to prove every time…and look what he did today, totally his fault for the two goals. Rvp has’nt been his best today but the silver ligning was walcott…we need to pick ourselves for the citeh game…up gunners

  20. I love aresnel. I hope we finish in the top 4 abover the chelsea and tottenham. Though maybe we will be only 2 points in the lead of cheslea next week!!

  21. Sorry Jason but forums are for expressing opinions. Sounds like you thought today went OK
    I simply cannot stomach a display like today’s when highly paid superstars don,t appear to turn up yet players with lesser skills out play us. That is all about attitude and today it sucked.
    Surely you recognize Wenger as an under performer tactician.

  22. listen you sad muppet whats your great plan because YOU LIKE ALL THE REST OF THE SO CALLED IDIOTS THAT CALL YOUR SELF ARSENAL FANS THINK YOU KNOW IT ALL BULLSHIT SACK WENGER GET RID OF OUR PLAYERS THEN WHAT BRAINBOX YOU HAVENT A CLUE MATE END UP WHERE DOWN DONT SPREAD BULLSHIT ABOUT ARSENAL BECAUSE YOU HATE WENGER THE BOARD AND THE PLAYERS AND DONT GO ON ABOUT THE MONEY YOU ALL PAY AS FANS IF YOU DONT LIKE IT FUCK OFF AND SUPPORT TOTTENHAM WE DONT NEED YOU AND YOU INSULT QPR ASWELL A GOOD TEAM FIGHTING AGAINT GOING DOWN AND DICKHEAD NO TEAM NO TEAM WINS EVERY GAME EVERY SEASON THATS LIF GET OVER IT JOG ON PRAT

  23. Has 4 me in dis comment, no one shall blame 5TV arsene wenger is d cause of every thing, since which game TVM commit dis kind of blunder last it can happen 2 any body he was drawed by grass, so dey should leave TVM out of dis complain,arsene stupid wenger is d cause dats is how is use 2 did is selection, u have 3 good side winger, OXC, BENAYOUN, GERVINHO, but it is stupid selection when hei put ramsony, ok tell me which contribut Ramsey did in d game, u have winger dat wil bríñg goä£ 4 ü büt h€ r€fü߀ 2 püt th€m………..

  24. Mjb
    Interesting reading both sides of your stories.
    Trouble with Theo is he goes missing for far too long in games and we suffer. Yes he scored today and against Spurs.
    There is a deep problem for some time now which makes our captains leave us. Last one to stay was Tony.
    I want to see passion and spirit in the team not just passing the ball sideways. We used to rip teams apart because they were scared and we went all out I don’t think it is a coincidence that certain managers get the better of us regardless of the teams they manage. We need to recognize this before the ganme and outplay them.
    We will probably play better next week because of the opposition.

    1. Richard
      Give this team time. They are still pretty new by all standards and are just getting into their stride.
      Walcott is just starting to show his ability.
      Today was rubbish because the ‘formulae’ had been messed with. Ox should of started above Ramsey. My reason being that the Ox has shown more spirit and class and skill than Aaron in all of the games he has played. He is also ‘physical’ enough to out class QPR.

  25. Jason, you sir, are a legend. Instead of getting the positives, people here are hating on arsenal and they call themselves “fans”…we need to point out the positives and look forward to our next game…like arent you guys happy aguero picked an injury and he will be out for 2 weeks!! COYG!!

    1. I’m not happy that anyone picked up an injury.

      What are you saying? It’s OK to hurt a player?

      Where you happy about Fabrice?

  26. TO THAT RICHARD MUPPET YOU KNOW IT ALL EVERYONES A MANAGER AND WHERE WOULD WE BE IF MUPPETS LIKE YOU WERE RUNNING OUR CLUB THE CONFERENCE LEAGUE MUPPET LOL, LOL UP WENGER AND THE BOYS ARSENAL FOREVER

  27. Hello Jason
    The spirit you are showing is what is missing on the park against teams who not unlike QPR today appear to want it more than us.
    I have always struggled, well before Wenger, with a complacent attitude on the park. Today was a classic of that.
    My plan is get a spine through the middle of the park. We are almost there but lack it in midfield. We need someone to yell at players not pulling there weight. We need a skipper who is not going anywhere and a strong 2ic for AW.
    It’s not about winning its about pride. We lost today in a way that is not acceptable, and yes largely because players demand such high pay. How many other professions get to put in poor performances and get so much money. I want to see them vomiting at the end because they worked their guts out.

    1. Lol!!!
      Oh dear we have touched a nerve haven’t we?

      Never mind.

      Perhaps when you come up with something interesting or intelligent to talk about regarding Arsenal people might listen to you. It also helps to take the caps-lock button off when your typing too.

      In the mean time, as you say, “JOG ON” jason.

  28. Has anyone noticed I haven’t mentioned TV
    That’s cos he puts it in week in week out so I don’t care that he messed up. We would be awesome if every player had his attitude.

  29. We both know what i’m trying to put across here, so don’t get all emotional on me and ofcourse i wasn’t happy with the muamba situation but iam sure putting words in peoples mouth is your specialty!!…anyway, i say this only because he caused us problems the last time we were at the etihad…so get of my back, will ya?

    1. Calm down mate, nobody is “on your back”.
      Just because he “caused us problems” is no reason to wish a player harm is it?

      just think about what your saying eh?
      Doesn’t hurt does it?

      1. Yeah so i’ve thought about it and i’m sticking with what i said, besides he wasn’t injured by anybody he actually did that all by himself(you should that story, its hillarious). So i’l take that any day as a boost to my arsenal team…

    1. So do I. They normally call opposition fans ‘Muppets’. They are normally illiterate too.
      The CAPS_LOCK thing is a new development in ‘5pud2’ culture.

  30. Have spent some time to make a stat. Arsenal won total 27 games so far. 12 of them which Ramsey was not started including the creditable run last few weeks. On the other hand, loss 14 games, 13 of them which he was started including some cheap loss. I don’t want him to leave but I am question why AW use him so many. He even not use Gervinho & Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain but put him on wing instead (or AM, i am not used where should he play today)

  31. WHEN WILL WENGER WAKES UP TO THE FACT THAT THE OX DESERVES TO START EVERY GAME BASED ON HIS CURRENT FORM??? WHEN WHEN WHEN!!!!!

    Ramsey attrocious shooting, he is NOT ready to start, repeat, NOT READY to be ahead of Ox-Chamberlain. Period.

  32. Trying not to insult or mention names, but it is really stupid not to see that for 70 mins a midfield player is useless, while better players sat on the bench.

  33. NO MJB1123 YOU HAVENT TOUCHED ANYTHING EVEN IF THAT IS YOUR DEPARTMENT WITH YOUR BOYFRIEND IF YOU SAID ANYTHING GOOD ABOUT MY TEAM AND THE TRUE ARSENAL FANS TEAM YOU MIGHT NOT GET THE STICK YOU GET YOU PEOPLE AND THE CRAP LOLD PRESS AND RADIO STATIONS LIKE TALK SHIT SPORT SLAG OFF ARSENAL ALL THE TIME WELL NO IT ISNT HAPPENING MATE BECAUSE ME AND ALL THE TRUE FANS AND ARSENAL BOARD WILL STICK WITH WENGER THANKS SO YOU HAVE HAD IT PAL AND WE WILL WIN SILVER WEAR YOU WATCH SO MY ADVICE TO YOU IS TOTTENHAM NEEDS YOU

    1. I don’t understand what you are trying to say. It makes no sense.

      Perhaps you need to relearn how to write properly then others can understand what your saying.

      (Dumb illiterate spud).

  34. You must be stupid to think i will actually read all that. I dont need fucking statistics to convince me that ramsey is awful, thankyou very much……we all love arteta, don’t we?? But he’s probably the worst in creating chances going forward…yes he passes well but his lack of creativity especially when needed is ALARMING!!
    Someone back me up.

  35. Yeah, so i’ve thought about it and i’m sticking with what i said, besides he wasn’t injured by anybody he actually did that all by himself(you should that story, its hillarious). So i’l take that any day as a boost to my arsenal team…

  36. AND THE ONLY REASON IM USING CAP LOCKS IS BECAUSE IM BLOODY PISSED OFF OF BRAIN DEAD IDIOTS LIKE YOU SLAGGING MY TEAM AND I WAS BORN IN ELWOOD STREET NEAR THE OLD HIGHBURY STADIUM AND WENT TO SCHOOL AT ST JOHNS INFANT SCHOOL RIGHT NEXT TO HIGHBURY IN CONEWOOD STREET SO NO I AM NOT A TOTTENHAM FAN AND IM CURRENTLY DOING ANIMAL SCIENCE AT COLLEGE FOUNDATION DEGREE LEVEL

  37. Wenger’s a prick. Fancy putting Ramsey wide left attacking and leaving Gervinho and Oxlade on the bench. Only a fucking idiot does that. We’ll Never win anything again with this buffoon in charge.

    1. At least Johns is aware of punctuation. With your constant referencing to being gay, I am convinced you are a repressed homosexual (when you are not doing animal science, which is obviously a euphemism…)

  38. Team appears to be suffering from to long-a-break! They appeared to relaxed and in a holiday mood.

    They have to want it badly enough and more than any other team.

    If the Arsenal first team can give TOTAL concentration until the end of the season, it will raise their individual and team performances to the next level.

  39. Jason, say hi to your mom for me, tell her i had a great time…and by the way i love the sponge bob sheets in your bedroom but yeah, you should probably get new ones.

  40. @jason,

    what makes you think you’re more arsenal than others. People are disappointed with the teams perfomance today and they have a right to point out the mistakes. Were you impressed with the perfomance.

    Nobody will criticise the team if they put up a fight, even if they lose. When we lost to mancity, everybody was still coll with the way our players fought.

    If you’re not passionate enough to feel bad with a bad perfomance, then ou’re not gunner enough.

    And one more thing, your use of English is worse than the players perfomance today.

    I like Wenger as a manager, but he fucked up with Ramsey today, and i’m gunner enough to express how bad i feel. That’s more than can be said for you.

  41. AND TO THAT WHOOPS IDIOT NO I DONT LIKE GAYS DO YOU THEN GAYBOY IMTO WOMEN MYSELF BUT IF YOU LIKE BOYS GET PUT IN JAIL AND SOMEBLOKE WILL MAKE YOU HIS BITCH IM SURE LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL

    1. Do you normally laugh at your own jokes? Laughing out loud whilst typing? Your mum must be downstairs thinking why on earth she didnt put you up for adoption when she had the chance.

  42. The players dnt play to win at all. Only themselves can let us know wat went wrong wt dem. Also wenger knows d reason behind constant feilding of Ramsy instead of gervinho or. Chanberlin. Wen players observe wrong selection, none of can talk bt to keep mute. Such affect their play bec d mind is already difeated. D players shuld know dat their destiny is in their hands. So watever they desire and pursue seriosly, is exactly wat they will get. If d coach sllips, na hm sabi.

  43. stop blaming vermelan. first of all the cause of arsenal winning run ended is by a.ramsey. when i saw his name on starting list im getting woried and doubtful of a win. i cant show my frustration just typing word…….heh..heh

  44. Team Average Win if Ramsey start 45%
    Team Average Win if Ramsey not start 86%

    Team Average Draw if Ramsey start 15%
    Team Average Draw if Ramsey not start 7%

    Team Average Loss if Ramsey start 39%
    Team Average Loss if Ramsey not start 7%

  45. We have Man City next – i can see us loosing and being dragged back down to 4th.

    The game against Chelsea will be season defining.

    The recent run has glossed over our issues, the problems are still there, we are still waiting for a replacement for Cesc and a striker worthy to play with RVP.

  46. Fans should stop moaning and get a grip of reality @ times. Bad things do happen and today is just a bad day in football for Arsenal. Madrid,Barca,Bayern Munich and Ac milan have all lost some unimaginable games this season and even before now. We all rated this team high before this game and this match can’t just make them just crap yet. It’s really annoying to lose most especially to a newly promoted and relegation threathen teams. But man u too lost @ Oldtrafford to blackburn when every one was calling for the head of Steve Kean. We must learn to stay positive and stay behind the team no matter what. Vermaelen is a world class defender but was crap today,will that change who he is? I don’t think so. If Rvp has been playing the way he has been in his last six games, maybe we would’ve been questioning Wenger for not giving PARK more game time! As bad as Ramsey can be, he’s won us games in the past no matter how few. His three goals this season where all match winning goals if my statistics are right. And with Gervinho, we’ve also won many matches and last week we we’re all happy to see him returning to his best. I always want to see the Ox in every game but still beliv the manager is getting the best out of him and he’s going to be unplayable come next season. Stay positive and support the team till the very end even as we expect some quality names to be added in the summer. Follow $e @Adkduke and I will follow u back

  47. Ramsey ruins our whole game. He is too slow on the ball and too slow in his decision making. He runs around like a headless chicken. He is even worse when he plays on the wing. At least when the Ox or Gervinho play it gives the opposition defender something to think about. Send him out on loan next season or if a decent offer comes in ship him.

  48. This game showed us Wenger hasnt learnt a thing. Should have taken Walcott and useless Ramsey off at h.t. And if he thinks we,ll ever be top dogs with Vermeulen and Gibbs, or even Kosceilny then he is deluded. Ramsay should be sold and Walcott too if a big offer comes in.
    What is the point of attacking at the expense of a caught out defence when One point could be obtained. The usual useless Wenger tactics. What is the point of taking off Arteta and surrendering the midfield to bring that useless Chamahk!
    The Arsenal board should make Wenger a Board member and get a new Manager and get Keown as Assistant manager. Martin O’Neill should have been snapped up by Arsenal.

    1. wow you know nothing about football. that is the first game i have ever seen tv5 have a bad game for arsenal. and kossa has been amazing this year and is a great defender. problem this season has been injuries and crap replacements, per and djourou are not got enough having all 4 full backs injured is a problem and the reason we started winning again was because we got our full backs back starting again. only thing you are right with is ramsey i have said it all season should never play for us he is shit. and you probably didnt watch the game like most armchair supporters. because walcott was our most attacking threat all game

  49. Are we all forgetting the real issue? Only a team from Manchester will win the Premiership because we’ve been sh*t all season. We’ve been so sh*t that even Spurs have a chance of finishing above us. Do our squad lack that much pride that they will even allow Spurs to finish above us? Out of the Carling Cup, out of the FA Cup, out of the Champions League, out of the Premiership and now Spurs have a chance of finishing above us? If that happens, any win we achieved this season will count for nothing. SPURS MUST NOT FINISH ABOVE US OR WE WILL REALLY BE CRAP

  50. Wenger will for sure start with Ramsey agst City just to prove all of us doubters wrong. Weer doomed.

  51. This is down to Wenger. Starting Ramsay on the left was a stupid decision. He is not a left winger so why play him there? It doesn’t make sense especially with having gervinho and the ox on the bench. That took away from our attacking threat and put pressure on our defense.
    Song’s decent success/assists have gone to his head and now he is trying the ball over the top all the time.
    Not the end of the world but we need to realize that bottom teams can beat us and we need to give 110% every match and not expect to turn up and win.

    1. He isn’t a playmaker too. No creativity or the ability to contol the midfield.
      He isn’t a defensive midfielder too. Cannot defend well.

  52. We lost ds game on sentiments. Ramsey isn’t spectacular in hs natural position 2 now drafting him in a position wch he knows notin abt. Wenger shud ask himsef if he wants a champions league slot or making useless playas hapi. To me if he has gvn vela or eduardo(wen d latter came bak 4rm injury) they wud have been a beta playa. We don’t nid dat 4 now,if u a nt gud u stay on d bench or sold.

  53. wenger cost club yesterday.pliz mr wenger when player loose possesion,not in control mostly loose.why use ramsey,he loses ball easyly,has no complete passes,ur herting fans,we want so see ox and not gervihno..he has long to adapt.my question to wenger,why do you use ramsey in mostly away game???,he(rams)has no idea.

  54. It’ obvious Hughes has taken a leaf from SAF and Chelsea who used to beat Arsenal easily the last few seasons..Let the gunners have plenty of possession but don’t them trouble our gk.When the gunner attack breaks down or a pass intercepted/misplaced,it’s the cue for the swift counter.Usually it works because the gunners like to attack and will have few defenders to trouble the attackers.
    Unless Wenger can rectify this ,3rd or even 4th place could be denied.
