TBH, I am just so bored with the ‘next game we will put it right answer' from the players and Mr Wenger, it shouldn't happen to start with.
This kind of result can be a freak result and you have to accept, swallow and forget about as soon as possible, but when it happens 3 or 4 times in the same season it then becomes a trend, a worrying trend that has been common in the last 5 years no matter who is playing in the team, which firmly points at the tactics and mental approach. No other team in the league bar Fulham would have collapsed like that apart from Arsenal.
I said to a colleague on Friday that Arsenal would break another record on Saturday against Chelski, he said 'what record’; I said 'the amount of goals Chelski score against Arsenal'.
After the Spuds win, there was no way we would beat a good team like Chelski playing like that, consistently for the last 5-10 games.
I am firmly a pro-Mr Wenger supporter, but it has to be said the buck stops with him and unfortunately, even if the full strength 1st team of players were out there, the same thing would have happened. That leads only to one conclusion.
Maybe if a decent (or half) player was purchased for millions over their actual worth in January it could have pushed the team on to or kept them at the great level they were playing. I don’t know enough about our Swedish International Loanee to be negative about him after all he is an experienced international professional, but what I do know as fact is he was sitting on an average Russian team’s bench and had a fracture of the lower back. The momentum he has helped bring to our ‘talented’ squad is a big fat ZERO. He could turn out to be just what we needed (2 months too late).
Arsenal supporters are used to being embarrassed now so don't bother apologising Mr Arteta, just ask the board to release a statement like they did after the Liverpool debacle and tell everyone how rich Arsenal are and how many millions we have in the bank, because let’s be honest, isn't that all what counts to AFC now....sadly? We have the highest ticket prices pretty much in the World, one of the highest wage bills in the Premier League, now even higher after committing players to longer term contracts which no doubt Mr Wenger will spin as ‘new’ signings again.
The truth is, as much as it hurts us all, including Mr Wenger and the playing staff, we play slightly above average football, with good players, a great stadium, with an intelligent manager that has done wonders getting an average side in to the Champions League year after year, yet when one of your senior players says he is ‘Embarrassed’ by the teams performance in a big match, which had no better play then against the Spuds, it sums it all up for me. Until the next hammering we take against Manchester City, brace yourselves for the same old same ol.......
