Something happened overnight, the gremlins popped into my laptop and stole the match report. Either that, or I failed to hit the ‘save’ button. I know which is more likely and it’s definitely gremlins..
Gone! Normal service resumed tomorrow I hope….
Arsene Wenger has had this to say:
We were not very good offensively, we didn’t create enough chances. I felt we lacked sharpness and desire. I felt we lacked purpose in our game.
Why? It was more mental than physical. Considering our performance and the result of the game, I don’t think we deserved more today.
It’s two points lost if you look at the target we had over Christmas, yes. It’s frustrating and disappointing because we didn’t create a lot today after having scored five at Reading and seven against Newcastle.
When you sum it up, the (lack of) goal chances we created, there is not a lot to consider. Our game lacked purpose, lacked penetration, lacked speed. All the qualities we have usually, we didn’t see tonight.
Last night’s match really was awful to watch wasn’t it?
Not only were we poor ‘offensively’, we were pretty dire defensively too and as for Sagna, that’s not the first time this season he’s tried to clear a ball by passing it centrally and into danger! He really is going through a bad spell.
Southampton showed passion and commitment yet we showed very little in that department, in my opinion.
If Wenger is to sign any player(s) this transfer window, I hope they are prepared to roll their sleeves up and put a shift in each week because some of whom we have right now clearly aren’t…
We can dissect the game in the comments…
Have a good day all….
