  • ESPN FC's Ian Darke, Julien Laurens, Steve Nicol and Alejandro Moreno break down Arsenal's 2-1 defeat at home vs. Brighton & Hove Albion. Nicol and Moreno say that the Seagulls were "one or two passes away from a big victory." Laurens adds that the problems for the Gunners are "deeper than a lack of confidence" and "will take a manager more experienced than Freddie Ljungberg to fix."

    I think Arsenal should sell every player. Sell Auba and Lac then buy some proven defenders. I think they are good stickers but they are going to leave anyway. Sell Granit, Ozil, Soc, Luiz, Mustfi, and so on. Clean house. Bunch of pussies.

    Arsenal , going the United way 😁😁😁. Arsenal fans are the shittiest , bunch of ungrateful morons , who chased away the Godfather . Whatever status Arsenal has is because of Wenger . I'm quite pleased that the team is in a horrible state.

    At Arsenal we all think about attacking football and exciting football. We always ignore the fact that a good team is built from the back. The first priority should be to stop leaking goals. We're like a bucket full of holes. Holds no water no matter how many times you go to the well.

    Hate when people say the players are no good it's the same players that were doing well when emery came in at first... One of the biggest problems is players are being played out of position so that affects the structure... Aubameyang should be playing through the middle with lacazette and probably play Pepe and martinelli out wide(players who are actual wingers and will create and also teach back

  • menschkeit1

    that defence will keep sapping the team of belief and resolve, no matter how good the attack is. Need to overhaul the defence, get back to first principles. Bring in Keown or Bould in there to help I say.

    LFC fan here I am afraid Arsenal have been living rent free in their own heads for the best part of a decade . 1 Whose decision was it to go and buy Pepe for 72m instead of getting two solid defenders like Maguire and Evan's? 2 Who decided that Brendan Rodgers "was not good enough " for Arsenal. I have to say Arsenal defence is so shocking they may well get relegated and I am not trying to be funny . David Louise aka "Sideshow Bob" is soooooo awful.

    Cahill was Free . I would have buy Micheal Keene from Everton ! I like him . Martenelli Played for 10 mins And had more shots than LACAZETTE

  • Team cassava mosaic

    surely... you can not say that wenger left us badly ..no no no no. to me. i just blame the administration of our club .. reason , they did not value players like Aron Ramsey . even unai was one of the problem. he failed to re-structure the club that is why we are strangling. lastly.. we need a holding middle fielder who plays like cesc farb.

  • Man from the Orient

    It’s not just the defence, offense doesn’t press well, midfield is very unbalanced and lightweight, full backs can’t cross and don’t do the overlap, central defenders are terrible and their best player (Aubameyang) is played out of position.

    Nicol is pure comedy, Arsenal players arent talented, hmm ? 2 top goal scorers, record assist player, world cup, premier league winners and young talents. if u play your 9 and 10 as wingers its a problem. should buy a defender, true but even man city could not get a top cb. u think Pep or Klopp would not get top 4 with these players ?

    • Ashley Thomas
      Ashley Thomas Month ago

      What young talents? Arsenal have no real quality young players. The only World Cup winning players Arsenal have are Mustafi (lol) and Ozil. The pair of them are garbage. Mustafi has been total garbage ever since he joined. That assist form from Ozil was 4 years ago lol! (what assist record by the way?) He has been abysmal for years, have you not been paying attention to the last 2-3 years of his form? The defence and midfield are atrocious.

    For the first time I’ve gotta say Nicol’s gotta a point. You go and spend 80m on Pepe when you could’ve easily used that money to sign a defender? Why? Because Arsenal desperately need another forward over a CB. Jules isn’t making much sense this time.

    Arsenal need to get of the likes of ozil, xhaka, mustafi maybe kolasinac first these guys seem to have no interest in playing for Arsenal especially when you consider wage costs and attitude. I just get why the commentator is so reactionary it not like arsenal could do anything special in the winter transfer window with money, the countries where you have the best players are half way through their seasons. As for manager come on who would they attract without a decent budget maybe someone who has excelled with a mid table team certainly not a coach with options like allegri who probably will be in contention for the real madrid or barcelona or psg jobs if they become available.

    List of Defenders that can sort Arsenal defense ( Price around 20M - 60M);
    Tomoaki Makino (Urawa Reds)(CB): probably 8 - 10 M
    Sergio Reguilon ( Real Madrid)(LB): benchwarmer but good enough for Arsenal:10M
    Stefan Savic(Alt.Madrid)(CB): decent defender :20- 25M
    Sime Vrsaljko( Alt.Madrid)(RB):Decent right back :20- 25M
    Yerry Mina (Everton)(CB): Physical center back,Aerial defense :20 - 30M
    Djilbril Sidibe(Monaco)(CB) (RB):Good Crossing,Good overlapping :15 - 25M
    Mehdi Benatia( Al Duhail) (CB): Cb full of experience,Strong physical,good tackle :10 -15M
    Kostas Manolas (AS Roma)(CB) (LB): Ball Winner,Good Crossing,Fast Pace:30- 45M
    Jeison Murillo (Sampdoria)(CB) :physically strong,fast in pace:10-15M
    All the players mentioned above was good defenders with low pricetags,which Arsenal could affort and orviously better than their current defenders (Papa,Luiz,Holding,Mustafi)......
    Stop giving bullshit excuses,(not enough money,good players are expensive etc....)

      @Samiul Hussain Manolas didn't start reularly for Rona this season...most of the time he is comin off the bench..Roma starting with 3 CBs at the back...Kolarov,Mancini,Smalling...So his priceta may decrease a little bit...obviously not less than 40M

    • Samiul Hussain

    3 Premier League clubs without managers.
    Is it just down to bad management or the over paid and pampered footballers in today's game?
    Have Arsenal and Everton got better players than Sheffield United or Brighton?
    Does the influx of substandard foreign players lead to a disconnect with fans?

    Confidence can't be the only reason for arsenal to lose at home to Brighton. It has to go much deeper than that. Do arsenal have the best team in the league no. But they are capable of pushing top 4 certainly.

Luiz was not there first choice, thats why no one saw it coming until the last day of the transfer window after arsenal tried to sign upamecano and ruben dias but the clubs didn't want to sell. These pundit like ian darke and nicol tried to make it seem like luiz was the first choice. I know arsenal is in a mess right now but by the media telling lies to its audience is why fan channels are rising in popularity.

      If they offered asking price for their targets they would get them. The owners are used to sucking money out of the club to build stadiums and buy teams for their real passion- American football. Arsenal is just a cash cow for them; has been for a long time. That’s why they can’t pay asking price for the quality defenders the team needs. The Kroenkes have succeeded in running Arsenal to the ground.
