[Ratings] Gunners fire another blank

 Arsenal 0-2 Schalke

2 shots on target in the last two games. 0 goals with back to back defeats, worrying times at Arsenal fans. The same Arsenal that lost 1-0 to Norwich. The same players that have barely earned the right to wear the Arsenal football team kits but blame everyone else but themselves when things go wrong. Didnt test the keeper and nothing in attack.  Wenger is getting the tactics all wrong and we really need to find some goals fast… With the AGM tomorrow night i hope the fans give Wenger and Gazidis a hard time.  Great balance sheet, Poor team sheet.

Players Ratings  (out of 10)

Mannone : 6 (Could of done better with the first goal and brings no confidence to the defense)

Jenkinson : 6.5 (Good pace and work rate but didnt offer nothing going forward)

Mertesacker :  8 (Our best player by a mile, a host of blocks and last ditch tackles to save us)

Vermaelen : 6 (Seems as if his head is already thinking about moving on, not the same player)

Santos : 4 (All over the place and played like a winger with no defensive cover)

Ramsey : 5 (Why is Wenger playing him on the wings? Why is he in the side ahead of Arshavin?)

Coquelin : 6 (Busy but wasteful with his final ball)

Arteta : 6 (Not his best game, passing was off the mark)

Podolski : 5 (Hardly touched the ball and seems wasted in the current tactics)

Cazorla; 7 (Some nice touches but wasted our best chance of scoring when he blasted over)

Gervinho. 3 (The most frustrating player ive seen in years. Cant control the ball and at times plays like a headless chicken, Not a striker)
Subs: Giroud & Arshavin, Not enough time to make an impact,  Gnabry. Some nice touches and was our only player to test the keeper in the 93rd mins.

    Never mind Ramsey on the wings,why is he even in the team! I could go on for hours but why should i,nobody at the highest levels at Arsenal seem to give a F%$K!!! These sort of performances have been going on for years now and nobody has done a thing adout it. They seem to be acceptable as long as we scrape into the CL. Owned in part by Walmart and turning into Aldi.

    Staunch supporter since 1963, however, what I have sadly experienced since 2007, my team no longer is capable of producing consistent gritty performances and results. It appears to me that the mindset at Arsenal has slid back into the mode of ” O well, we have tried our best with the players we have and our balance sheet looks healthy, so as long as we qualify for the Champions League that is good enough for us.” Gone are the days when Arsenal had self-respect and respect for their supporters.
    Unfortunately, in my opinion, Arsenal has capitulated to Mr. Wenger’s philosophies of eternal development of “bargain buys” which does NOT equate to consistent positive results for our First team nor having the winner mentality ingrained into the new players coming into the club.
    Mr. Wenger and his scouts must have an obvious lack of insight and vision as to where the supporters would like to see the Arsenal progress to. But then again, is it not this same Mr. Wenger who has in the recent past stated that trophies are not everything? So, “if our boss does not regard winning as all important for the Arsenal, why should we as players over-exert ourselves?” To me it is tragic how the Arsenal select players to buy in order to “improve our squad”. First and foremost the price of the player is the over-riding concern and then follows, will Mr. Wenger be able to indoctrinate this player into his way of thinking.True class and ability under pressure are not even a consideration as Mr. Wenger can teach that to our players??????
    I am extremely sad and disappointed with this new version of my beloved Arsenal by a manager who claims he loves Arsenal.

    It’s actually very difficult in this busy life to listen news on Television, thus I only
    use world wide web for that purpose, and get the most up-to-date news.
