Our first meaningless game of the season. Don't feel like Danny on the nature of defeat, after all the team contained several individuals that get regularly railed against on these forums. We're already through, we'll take our chances in the last 16 with whoever we get, draw a line under this one and the season starts again on Saturday.
A winning mentality breeds success, and I just dont see it anymore. Meaningless game or not, they still wear the Arsenal badge on the pitch, and if they arent bothered then this becomes a cancer in the club. There was no pressure on the players this evening - they had the opportunity to play the beautiful football that Wenger has been known for, but they could not perform. Go back 10 years and see our 2nd team play - a world apart from out 1st team now.
Team full of players that get regularly railed on these forums? With the pressure off, they had an opportunity to express themselves but nothing. Its not as if Ramsey and Forehead are bit part players - they have featured often in our first team
No fight in the players. No hunger. We had been known for pretty football with no end product, but even the pretty football has disappeared.
