    A big loss

    I am glad that the sunderland game came before the ROMA game.
    We now know and AW knows what isn't working. Yes we are missing players and talented players but I feel the attitude is not right.
    I blame the manager for it. Let me explain myself: AW has given Eboue more chances than Vela. AW wait till the last 15 minutes to make a change (fulham,stoke,sunderland away...).
    I told a friend at the Emirates that Sunderland are looking more dangerous than us even though our possession was excellent.
    Last monday ,when we played Cardiff we had Eduardo,he gave us movement ,He is good at holding the ball and He always smells opportunity around the opposition box.
    His presence made Bendtner look a decent player. RVP is not like Eduardo, he is more like an individual type of a player. He thinks for himself first before he chooses an option.
    RVP can create a goal out of nothing,Eduardo can do the same but bendtner and adebayor can't.
    This is why omitting Vela from the starting line-up is difficult to comprehend. Vela is just like EDU. When Vela plays with Bendtner, Bendy becomes decently dangerous.
    Against Roma,we need to score at least 2 goals and keep a clean sheet.
    with edu and adebayor out,I am praying for Diaby to be fit and fill in the second striker role in a 5 midfield position just behind RVP with on the left wing supporting RVP.
    if diaby is still injured then,AW needs to play Eboue and Vela on the wing with Denilson and nasri in the middle and make sure that we don't concede at home until adebayor and eduardo are back.
    If Diaby is still injured then
