Giroud, Mertesacker, Ospina not good enough. Too many changes. Too many players have to play out of position to accomodate Ozil, Welbeck isn't a winger and Cazorla is a brilliant attacking mid but try as he might is a pretty ordinary defensive midfielder. Wenger needs to get a set structure happening and stick to it coz half the time it looks like no one knows what they are doing
Agree with Coquelain + I am waiting for him to get sent off as he jumps into tackles all the time
When oh when is Wenger going to accept that Mertesacker is a total and utter liability to our defence? Totally off the pace again, made to look amateurish and second rate. EVERYONE keeps telling Wenger that we need a new central defender but he is so obstinate and stubborn that he refuses to accept the truth! Finally, we signed Gabriel who looked good in the FA Cup last rd but Wenger refuses to push Per to one side. Gabriel must be sitting there thinking 'I was in the best form of my career in La Liga but now I've got to sit here & watch a donkey play week in week out'
Take a leaf out of Joachim Löw book Mr Wenger. Per started for Germany in the WC, after the group stage Joachim seen the writing on the wall, dropped him to the bench never to be seen again until 5mins to go in the final.
Santi has looked very good in a more central role (wouldn't be surprised if he wins our player of the year) but it isn't going to work long term if he doesn't have that leader/enforcer in the middle of the park with him
Ospina - Bring back Wazza!! 3rd goal he should of saved. He is to small & does not dominate his area
Giroud - Worst game in a Red shirt. If he tucked his chances (7 or 8 of them) it would of been a totally different story.
