More attempts on goal in 1 half than any team all season.

And there's people still defending Koeman.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

Would've been 2 or 3 nil down but for Pickford though, so he can be forgiven a minor error.

He's done it a couple other times this season, parrying the ball back into danger. Definitely something that he needs to improve his technique on, can't think of many other areas though.

No. You support your team.

You can support a team, while still recognizing problems.

Or is this a dictatorship and fans can’t have a voice, unless it’s unwaveringly uncritical?

How many of our players would get into the Arsenal team? Their quality is on a different level to us.

Gana and Pickford of our present team.

In reality its been pretty shit again. Had 2 or 3 whove played well though and at least weve shown some aggression and threat. Defensively though we are wide open. They look like they could cut through us every time they get the ball.

Pickford wasnt to blame at all imo, he had to readjust with the deflection. Kenny should have reacted quicker and got in front of Monreal. Hes young, but he has to be switched on if he wants to go from a good reserve player to a very good starting player. Were still in this, but we need another body in mid to stop their control otherwise we are just going to keep drawing them against our back 3 and with Williams on a card and NO pace whatsoever there, its a disaster waiting to happen.

On a positive note by this time tomorrow we may need a manager.

Any morsels of comfort we may have got from Rooney's goal is just papering over the cracks.

Giroud must be watching this and thinking "must give the wife a good seeing too tonight for saving me from this"

Not a fan of our hoof it to DCL and hope he becomes peak Brazil Ronaldo and scores a goal on his own approach

I mean, theoretically we are playing 2 up top.  It shouldn't be that way.

The first shot leading up to their goal took a deflection off Sigurdsson. I don't think Pickford can be blamed for that really.

Defensively we are very poor, Pickford has been superb. However, I feel we've shown more guts and passion in this half than any other time this season. We're riding our luck, and we probably will get tonked in the second half, but at least we're seeing the team try more.

Think Klassen for Rooney at some point in the half. Really believe he is one flick or assist away from being amazing

That was a deflection how the hell can you blame Pickford for that ? Been our best player in front of an invisible defence, 5-1 without him by halftime.

We will continue to be dominated, and lose 2-1, and Koeman will be safe because we battled.

Hang on do I have to be supporting Koeman by saying I think I see a lot of positives out there today? Yes Arsenal have carved us open but it's the first time this season I have seen passion, commitment and a willingness to try things. I can just about take losing when the players leave it all out there.
