New found defensive steel?

Chelsea 0-0 Arsenal

Arsenal left Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon content with their display but rather disappointed not to have secured the three points that their performance richly deserved. The Gunners went into the game with football pundits and supporters alike expecting a similar display and result to their previous away game to Liverpool but the Gunners proved them all wrong.

Comfortable win followed by long night

Arsenal returned to winning ways with a very comfortable win at home to Bournemouth on Saturday. It was a victory that will have restored confidence amongst the squad following the debacle at Liverpool, but in truth it was difficult to read anything into it, such was the poor performance of the away side.

Pathetic Gunners embarrassed again

Liverpool 4-0 Arsenal

Arsenal’s performance away to Liverpool on Sunday was simply disastrous. This was not the assessment of any football pundit or fan sat in the stadium watching their team capitulate, this was Arsene Wenger’s description of what he had just seen.

From the very first minute to the very last, Wenger’s side were an embarrassment to the club, the shirt, the fans and their manager. Yet at no point did we see Wenger or any of his backroom staff, get up from the dug out to castigate the players.

Same old problems

Stoke 1-0 Arsenal

Jese Rodriguez puts Stoke ahead against Arsenal

Arsenal left Stoke on Saturday night wondering just how they had managed to lose a game in which they had enjoyed over 70% possession and should have been awarded at least one penalty. Bewildered looks could be seen on the faces of the majority of Arsenal’s players as they boarded the coach for the long journey home but in truth the answer to the question was rather simple. The Gunners’ defence had ultimately let them down.

More pain for the Arsenal faithful

Crystal Palace 3-0 Arsenal

The shocking stats surrounding Arsenal’s 3-0 defeat to Crystal Palace

Arsenal suffered yet more humiliation, this time at the hands of Crystal Palace, as the Gunners season continued to go from bad to worse with another abysmal performance on Monday night. A home draw against Manchester City followed by a win against West Ham had seen some of the players declaring that they were close to rediscovering top form. However those that had actually watched the games knew this was far from the truth. Arsenal’s attacking play has been horrendously bad since the turn of the year, with the Gunners failing to consistently turn possession into goal scoring opportunities. It is as though they lack the conviction to do so and Wenger appears lost for ideas as to how to resolve the issue.

Cowards costing Gunners

West Brom 3-1 Arsenal

Another game and another defeat for Arsenal, this one more shambolic than the last as Arsene Wenger’s position becomes more and more untenable with each passing week. The Gunners are just an embarrassment at the moment as the years of mismanagement by the board finally come home to roost.
