Not sure about Gary Neville as a co-commentator on this game....

The Linesman clearly lifted the flag for offside and he goes " The Linesman has missed that one " .. well you can't expect much from an ex Man Utd player !

Re: Official Arsenal Thread

I'm not going to blame Szczesny for that one.

Ball was rolling funny initially, and then after the strike the ball appeared to be going straight midway to the net it dips and swerves even more, nearly impossible to save tbh with the ball spinning like that with that pace. You could however argue maybe Szczesny wasn't ready for it.

Nothing impossible about it at all, the ball burst through his hands. I won't blame him too much however, as he was near faultless other than that.

If you looked at the flight of the ball, any keeper would've thought to not move at all as the ball was going straight at him, then it suddenly swerves and with so little reaction time the keeper is forced to dive and of course the dive is short and the ball is swerving so they cant get proper contact to save it. that's how i saw it.

If it wasn't for Szczesny we would have been 4 down by half time :)

The ball was indeed moving' date=' swerving and dipping but the shot came from a long way out, he had enough time to react to it.[/quote']

Szczesny should've done better with the second goal but the defending that led up to the goal was awful. Despite his mistake, Szczesny was still one of our best players today.

I thought Coquelin was our best player, he looked very assured in midfield, he tracked back well and looked composed on the ball too. His performance was the only positive to come out of the 8-2 defeat against United and the same could also be said after today's defeat.
