Arsenal 1 – Chelsea 4 – Does it get any worse?


Sunday’s game was frustrating to say the least. It was a perfect summary of our season, our strengths, weaknesses and failings.

Wenger insists for some unknown reason in persisting with a 4-2-3-1 formation. He then proceeds and plays our players out of position. Diaby on the wing and Nasri as a central midfielder. Both look lost and ineffective in these alien roles. We then proceed to play with one striker and expect this person, be they van Persie, Adebayor or Bendtner to beat two top class defenders. In our recent games against Chelsea (twice), Manchester United (twice) and Liverpool we failed to play as an attacking force.

The sooner Wenger reverts to 4-4-2 the better.

Then Arsenal embark on another frustrating afternoon of failing to hit the target. Theo Walcott may have a signed a new contract, but he needs to compose himself and start to hit the target.
