    I’ve lost rspect for walcott aswell to be honest. Lethal player, like horse face van persie, but he goes on like a bit of a fanny. Quite interesting behaviour from a team that is meant to be known for its class.

    Ben arfa gets man of the match for me. World class finish again once again.

    And compare temperament, van persie makes a tool of himself, starts every game when fit and still gets shown up in class from the ”unmanegable” ben arfa! Benny’s goin nowhere, he’s gonna be on fire soon, he’s just warming up

    If messi scored benny’s goal it would of been round the world twice by now. The angle of it was horrible, so so tight. The boy is unplayable on his day, and we haven’t seen him yet!

    In my opinion. This is Pardew’s biggest job in his career, and he’s still learning. He hasn’t done bad getting us so high in the league, with a very good shout at european qualification. And he’s got the right backing in respect of transfers. We know we’ll be upgrading.

    Pardew’s got time if you ask me

    1)FULHAM-Shameful second half cos he didn’t tighten up midfield and tell them to sit.
    2)Brighton-played the wrong team with best on the left(however we were unlucky)
    3)TOTTENHAM-Embarassing defeat because once again wrong team and formation was played.
    4)WOLVES-Seen we were vulnerable yet chose to continue with 2 strikers-Crazy (should have shut it out easily)
    5)ARSENAL-Allowed them to dictate the play the whole game by playin OBERTAN IN CM???(I’ll say no more)
    -Othet bad moves were;
    Leaving Gutrie in the cold wen Cabaye is playing crap,Playing Ryan Taylor RM, and finally not realising Williamson is a championship defender and signing one in January.Don’t want him sacked or nothing but he hasn’t learned from them?? Anybody????

    Two Obertan?

    I understand, he was so invisible on the pitch, that Ed has to put his name twice in that poll, just so we know that he was there 🙂

    Benny for me ! ! !

    obertan was great in the first half…one of our best players.. too bad he doesnt have the stamina to last a whole match..but the guy is improving..

    i cant decide who was our best player, but wiliamson was the worst for sure.

    Right up until that throw in, it was Simpson (surprised me too!). After that point, without a doubt Tim Krul. HBA gave the ball away too often to be MOM for my liking. He is looking a lot better these days, but he needs to remember the time for simple, rather than attempting the sublime.

    Guthrie should’ve started instead of Cabaye, I said it before the match, and I say it now! Think he did well when he came on at a difficult time considering how bad we were. His touches, vision and passing skills are one of the best in our team and he almost never get caugth in possesion like Cabaye does too often nowadays. I think Cabaye, Ba and a couple more are starting to run out of steem in their first full PL-season, because the length and pace of the EPL is waaay differet to other leagues, and it takes time to learn to cope with it. I just wish Pardew could rotate the team a little more over the season and rest some players now and then, but hey, he’s the expert!!

    I haven’t read any post-match comments deliberately so I could put my two bob in and see whether it matches up withjany other opinions.

    Simmo ayed well most of the time but crucially went missing or lapsed at exactly the wromg moments. AP said he wanted to sub him as he was injured, so why was he a mile up the pitch trying to dribble through their defence? That cost us. Willo is not the answer for CB, a good sub I think. He can win headers but even with time cannot place them and he also cannot bring a ball down and play out. Yes it was RVP who did him but he didn’t turn willo or anything, he simply stepped behind him while he ball-watched. Santon is still some way off appreciating the primary respomsibility of a FB but it will happen. Colo steady as ever but a one man band at times and therefore no offside trap. Midfield did well but were hampered from going at Arsenal by the ever-present danger of our wayward defensive line, therefore soon reduced to dropping back at the slightest hint of threat. Ba was a wasted resoirce due to the retreating midfield. Subs – shola surprisingly effective at holding the play forward. Guthrie industrious as ever, non-productive as ever, mostly being very busy going side to side with no defensive or attacking threat. Obertan a bit lost, will need time to play in that hole but how can he or HBA or even Cabs forge forward when there are holes appearing behind them?

    Perch was an excellent steadying influence and for me is more important and useful to keep than Simmo, Willo, Guthrie.

    Conclusion is our back line is incomplete, unco-ordinated and insufficient for a European push. Summer signings must overhaul the back line so the rest of the team is not hampered and subdued by it. We may just have enough to bungle through the run in but for me it’s well done lads, roll on next season!

    Nufcsteve – you aren’t factoring in the element of Pards being not exactly stowed off with first-team talent at the moment. If he had a decent squad depth your tacticsgate scandal might hold more water. Plus tactics and knowledge of your players’ ability to comply with them is something that happens by dint of experiment and time, which he has not had yet.

    Can someone ring up the school and check whether the triplets are on their way home yet? I’m getting worried they should be on here slagging off Pards ages ago 🙂

    Just been on Twitter and the amount of arsenal fans taking the p*ss out of krul is ridiculous, the cockney tossers. It’s actually trending that’s how bad it is. It’s amazing how when they got beat by Milan and the scum they all wanted wenger sacked, but now they think he’s God. Did u know arsenal would be 17th without Robin van cockend, when man city sign him they will plummit like a stone because podolski will never fill his boots. They play classy football but don’t have the fans or players attitudes to back that up.

    gaz 44 – agreed. He didnt look interested in getting back. I noticed it a lot last night, when players were out of position, there wasnt anyone else there covering them, admittedly i was only watching it on sky so probably missed alot but did anyone else notice this?

    Tiote m o m by a mile for me. And other than the late mistake Simpson was first class. Shame as Ox-Chamberlain never had any sort of impact as Simmo wrapped him up. Tiote going off was a disaster for us, and the fact it was cramp shows the effort and commitment he showed. So Tiote gets it for me.

    gaz 44, i commented on a previous post that Guthrie was shocking for the goal. Thought i was the only one to see it. He ambled back and easily could have covered Vermaelen but didn’t even try. Simpson got destroyed last night by some of our “fans”, which was a joke. Cabaye was poor last night, far too deep/negative and also Demba wasn’t his usual self. Our small squad is catching up with us and Jonas has been woeful for ages from an attacking point of view.

    Cabaye is being hamstrung by our squad deficiencies – he shouldn’t be a covering midfielder we didn’t buy him for that, but the lack of squad depth dictates he hangs back. Jonas’ game likewise is being destroyed by the need to cover LB constantly and he is too knackered to do it all, look at his stats for ground covered its not fair on him. I wouldn’t destroy simmo we haven’t really got as good cover for that side, but he doesn’t quite shape up to being the full-time one for me, too many costly forays forward, it’s not like he actually creates a hatful of opportunities is it? But he does cost us goals at times.

    HBA for me, was not in the game much in the 2nd half, due to us not having much possession, we were unlucky last night we defended well and looked a threat on the counter,

    if Obertan had a football brain he would be dangerous, he has all the attributes, very frustrating player.

    anywho hopefully this summer we inject pace into our back four…coz we seriously need it!!

    I used to think liverpool were alright until they signed suarez, Carroll and rehired dogleash I honestly despise suarez and daglish, suarezs recent events have made me more bitter towards him and now the fact they think they have the god given right to be in the cl every season since they’re not there now makes me hate them more, I’m sure their crippling debt will see them decline in the coming years.

    No way Tim Krul, I’m a big fan of his but his distribution cost us the game. Think about it, the second half consisted of Arsenal attack, it breaks down we pass around the midfield then the defence and back to Krul who hoofs it long, we loose possession. Repeat.

    To be fair though if it is Pardews instruction or Andy Woodman (GK coach) then I take it back. But you only have to look at Arsenal who play from the back. There keeper 9/10 plays a short pass to one of the full backs who in turn play it around the deck and slowly build pressure and hardly ever loose possession.

    Despite my previous post I’m not too downhearted after yesterday, they were class and on the day the far superior team in almost every department. Especially out wide.

    I think some people are overreacting to the long ball situation, I honestly don’t blame Tin for lumping it because our players go into hiding and there is nowhere he can pass it, teams know that if you pressure us that we will panic and hoof it, thus giving them possession back to the o pposition, we need to adress this because with the ball nothing happens, no movement at all. We invite the pressure onto ourselves. But its annoying how we only play for 20 minutes and then stop. You can’t win if you don’t play for the full 95 minutes
