One thing that hets on my tits is when supporters justify a loss against a so called bigger team by saying that we didnt expect to get anything there etc. BUT  surely the same must apply when we play Hull, Leicester or West Brom etc ? None of them hellhounds would be able to spend 28m on a player surely and would want a team for that.

Martinez has talked his way into a job he cannot handle and is making an utter mess of it truth be told. We have no hame plan other than to retain the ball at costs and are the most predictable team in the league because thats how RM sets us up week after week after week. His philosphy does not work for us-we are not Barcelona and do not have messi, neymar, iniesta or xavi to produce magic week after week after passing the opposition off the pitch. The result....players passing sideways or backwards with no penetration.

I didn't get to watch the match live today but just watched the highlights on match of the day. Highlight wise they seemed to play reasonably well with a few chances. But of course they didn't show the backwards and slow side passing movements, which I would think is causing the negative backlash type comments. Anyway bring on Stoke.

I'd go for that, done a good job with both MK Dons and Chelsea and had a decent run with WBA before it went south

I think we had more clear cut chances than Arsenal did really. It wasn't the greatest game in the world and I think some of the reactions to it should have been saved should we fail to win in midweek.

All of this talk is extremely counterproductive when we could still win the Europa League.  Might be our best chance at real glory for a generation.

If something needs to happen in the summer or 10 games into next season, so be it.  But I don't want to fuck this chance up.

Right now I would sacrifice a decent league position for the EL cup. If we finished 17th on goal difference but with a cup, then it is justifiable.

BUT, if we are still fighting for our premiership lives next season, bye bye Bobby. I think he is being found out.

Oh without question we can't have this kind of League season again.  It has to be a "one off" or he's gone.  Just saying that anyone who would seriously entertain the notion of making a change THIS SEASON with Europa to play for...

For the record, thesackrace.com has a list including the likes of Michael Laudrup, Laurent Blanc,  Ralf Rangnick, Thomas Tuchel, Frank Rijkaard and Jurgen Klopp as well as donkeys like Hughes, Poyet,  Lennon, O'Neill and Lambert

Thomas Tuchel. That's the reason I joined this site. He unfortunately left Mainz and they've been in trouble since. He's a brilliant mananger but as Everton haven't won at Arsenal since the 90's, aren't we jumping the gun?

Wenger has had 20 years to build a style of play and we are moaning about Martinez after 1 year and a bit . Fact is we should have won that game yesterday and had Stones been less worried about fixing his fucking socks and hadn't let his man get in front of him then it may have been different . We won't go down and I just don't seet the point in changing Managers so that the next man can chop and change and ultimately achieve fuck all more than Martinez might given the same amount of time as Moyes was . Lets see where Southampton finish and what they win this season as there in lies a lesson . Likewise the promised land is now looking someway off for WHU .

I agree with what you mean about managers sometimes need time to build their teams and style to be consistent. However wenger won the league in his first full season at arsenal playing that style, your sentence makes it sound like they only play this style because he had 20 years.

We deserved to lose yesterday, lennons was a good chance and lukakus looked a half chance. Outside of that we had plenty of the ball without ever feeling that threatening and it always felt like they could get another goal which deflection or not happened and we came away with what we deserved.

Honestly have no clue what you're all talking about. We played arsenal who'd won as man in a row at home as we had all season (more now) We matched them and on another day could have won. It's frustrating that we aren't scoring goals and winning games but we are playing quite well and we are a million times better than the shambles over christmas. We need this season over with and the next to start but im really not sure where the massive moans about performances are coming from

What other day?

That's the point, it always seems close but how come it's not ever, apart from Palace, falling out way?

It's not as bad as at Christmas but come on, that was absolutely abysmal, that level of form was never going to carry on.

But the "upturn" in performances have seen 1 win since then.

You could predict the pattern of that defeat and that's the big issue. It was widely accepted that we'd have plenty of the ball, but offer little threat and that they'd do enough (on the back of their own low confidence due to the Monaco game) to win the game.

i'm sorry, but, WHAT THE FUCK? we have not threatened a team all season, our attacking intent is the equivelant of one legged mand in an arse kicking contest with a broken foot. arsenal didnt have to come out of practise game mode.

THATS why some fans are fucking worried, this was not a one off, its benn the most consistant thing about our season, we look clueless,toothless and gutless.

for all his faults, moyes would have fucking sorted that lack of character, poor defending and made sure we were offering more than token threats. oh, and the fans would have more faith in him, because he would not bullshit them with platitudes and "phenominally" uninspired press conferences.
