Arsenal Message Board
West Brom was a shocking performance.
Wenger really has to act on the keeper situation, maybe time for the younger Pole. He needs a full and frank review of and the cause and effects for our numerous injuries, we regularly seem to be without majority of the first choice spine of the team these days. Yesterday, we were without Verm, Cesc, Van Persie and dare I say Bendtner, not to mention Theo. Seems a regular occurrence these days.
But that is no excuse for a performance like that. Replacements for the aforementioned should be capable of dealing with West Brom at home, if they are not, some should be shipped out
But - and it is a bigger but than possessed by Yaya Toure and Sol put together - thanks to the completely inept performances by rivals, that defeat was not as damaging as by rights it should have been.
Chelsea fall miserably at their first test, Man Utd provide further proof they can no longer defend and that Rooney is somewhere awol, City - good result but their negative tactics will cost over the season, Spurs - not even worth a mention
Bad but could have been worse, much worse
Chlesea might have failed their first test but if City was their first test then what was West Brom to us? What ever it was we failed more then Chelsea did against West Brom, does that bode well for our game against Chelsea?
I don't think you can look at what our opponents did this weekend. One should look at like-for-like comparison.
If we beat City at home that would be a good weekend for us since Chelsea dropped points against them. This weekend was good for those who will beat West Brom at home since we got taken apart - at home.
Ridiculous, if anyone got out of jail this weekend it was us. We had the most difficult fixture and both United and especially Arsenal were expected to win. You had a great chance to close the gap and you failed miserably.

basically we all had a pretty bad weekend and the only team to make any sort of progress was man u by 1 point
yes we did pretty badly against wba but these things just happen and at least we arnt any further behind chelsea than we were at the begining of the weekend
theres nothing we can do about it now just need to move on and forget that result and try and get a win in belgrade tomorow
"Chelsea fall miserably at their first test"
If home against West Brom is not a test, what was it you did yesterday?
Answer can only be that you judge Chelsea by a different standard to that which you judge Arsenal. Which is fine. Everyone else does too.
