Martinelli was already prep'd to come on before Ceballos

But yeah, a difficult job to defend Arteta tonight.

I mean, on the one hand... Nketiah. So yeah, play with a false 9. But I would still have had Pepe up front instead.

I mean (again) the league is long gone, so the manager SHOULD already have been preparing for this match since before the Everton match. If you want to experiment, don't leave it to the big night to do it

Yep, I don't agree with Xhaka at LB, but otherwise I thought it was an okay line up, but then the way we shaped up made no sense to me. We're not a super intelligent unit of a team, so just keep it simple. Get Odegaard deeper and get him on the ball and get Pepe closer to goal as he's the best finisher we had on.

Essentially he just made them both nullified, persisted with the worlds most immobile LB and continued to trust Ceba who lets us all down consistantly.

One positive is that this is the same Emery who threw away a 4-0 first leg lead to Barca away...

Whether that was true or not. Why did it take till we were 2 - 0 behind in the second half? Even then it was obvious at HT that Ceb was chasing the ball the entire half and was going to get booked again just out of frustration.

Seriously you are questioning me when I speculated that Martinelli only came on after Ceb was off?

I have never seen such poor management. I hated Rioch with a vengeance but even he was never so naive.

Was he questioning you? You hadn't mentioned either of these players on this thread at that point?

they walked all over us. Not one of our CMs knew who to press or when to press. And the only mistake was Xhaka at LB?

And as for playing no striker. I am lost for words.

This was shocking.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Do you have much hope for the team to turn it around?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
We fail to score out of play.

We surely need our players back especially Tierney who give us width at least on one side. We surely cant go on with Xhaka as our LB.

We only have a chance if we can play with our best team. Mari on their second goal being naive.

I didn't say it was the only mistake, in fact I go on to say the way we shape up was wrong.

Why do you just make up stuff to find arguments?

ESR as false number 9 ffs

Someone needs to slap Arteta on his head and remind him he isn't on Pep's level. Imagine pulling a stunt like that on the most important game of his career. Facking diiiick

Yes, so assuming we were lining up with Pepe as CF I thought it was an okay line up, but we didn't hence thinking that he got it wrong in many other ways when I saw our actual shape

You can't imagine the rage I am feeling atm. Serial.

It is true.

My commentary mentioned he was warming up about 5 mins before Ceballos was sent off. By that time he was stripped and having instruction on the sideline.

I didn't really have a problem with the timing. In fact, for Arteta, it seemed kinda proactive. At least he allowed the starting XI time in the 2nd to see if they could improve on the 1st half. They seemed more up for it in fairness.

Yeah, surely you need a player in that position that scores more than ESR does at his age?

We have no width at all. Only Pepe getting on defenders allthough hardly successful. But he tried at least. We have no FB's who are doing anything to support our strikers

posted on 29/4/21

If fact, J99, I actually feared the Ceballos would make Arteta change his mind, and bring on Elneny instead of Martinelli.

That's cos both our FBs are either a central defender or a central midfielder
