    Just a dearth of urgency

    nice win by United.
    after that first 10 minutes of the 2nd half, it was fairly straightforward for the Blades.

    I expect nothing less than banners and protests, this is a joke. Unai Emery is destroying the Arsenal I love and it is truly painful to watch, he is not fit to manage another second of football for us.

    Based on what? He's been terrible in the few minutes he's got this year and he was terrible last year.

    He has been good this year when he has played, and was brilliant for parts of last season too. Simply having his ability to unlock defenses, which he shows every time he steps foot on the pitch despite his flaws, is incredibly valuable against well organised sides like Sheffield. He is our only source of creativity, he created as many chances in 71 minutes last time he played as Ceballos has all season. Surround him with workhorses in Torriera and one of Willock/Guendouzi and he will at least offer more than Ceballos, because frankly almost anyone does when he plays like today.

    Look who suddenly likes Guendouzi now that he has a new player to hate

    This is how I saw it as well, such makes me puzzled why so many people think United deserved the win. Outside of that goal that should have never been allowed to happen, their only shot on target was a McTominay dribbler from 25 yards. They created absolutely nothing, yet are being praised for a great performance.

    I do not rate Guendouzi as highly as most, he was horrendous today, but I have changed my mind a bit since a while back now. I have said many times this season that Guendouzi has undergone an insane development by the way, but ignore what I have said about him for two months if you want. I do not suddenly like him for no reason, his performances of late have made me warm up to him. Guendouzi should not be a regular, week in, week out starter this season, I still believe that. I still like Ceballos, he is great at times, but not creative enough to be the only player with a creative license on the pitch. Ceballos can be very useful and I in no way hate him, when I say ”almost anyone can offer more”, I mean as a source of end product and a final ball, creativity in the final third. Stop trying to put words in other peoples mouths. I would like to see

    Willock - Torriera

    Özil

    Finally a chance to catch a weekday match and against relegation fodder. Expected result. Just mind boggling how Xhaka is the first name on the sheet and Torreira rides the pine. I'm all for Willock getting minutes but in a match like this Ceballos has to start, that midfield has zero creativity. With Ozil frozen out of the squad we are in the same boat as United having one creative midfielder on the roster.

    And that only creative midfielder, Ceballos, has only created 6 chances all season, which is shocking.

    I dunno, Arsenal are worse than Liverpool and of the Uniteds, Sheffield is better, so it seems about even.

    this is mostly a dig at Man United

    Really think Leicester has a shot at top 4. Their schedule isn't too tough until the go to City two months from today and then home against Liverpool on Boxing day.

    Yeah, they have a shot. Their depth is a bit questionable, but as long as they avoid a long cup run, it should be good.

    They certainly benefit from the fact that much of the rest of their top four challengers are mediocre.

    I know that some of what has gone on is due to pressure Pepe is experiencing, but man is he struggling.

    He shows flashes but is really inconsistent and at the end of the day we need him to score. So many grade A chances missed thus far!

    Lol, are you surprised Arsenal lost yesterday? That was the most Arsenalian lost ever, this isn't anything new that has been happening to our club the past 11 seasons.

    This doesn't take from the fact though that Liverpool dropped points against a self-inflicting Man Unit squad, so I am not sure what you're trying to prove here? We all know that Arsenal sucks, this isn't like a brand new revelation or something...

    Not only that, but majority of you lot even predicted this when we hired Emery as manager, so...

    Meh, adjustment year. Going from Ligue 1 to EPL is a huge step into difficulty, but he has looked fantastic at everything except finishing so I am very much less concerned for him.
