I'm going on a rant now
Even by our low standards in the art of defending this was a new level last night. I still can't believe what I saw. The defenders should be locked in a room & forced to watch that debacle on a loop. Even I could do better & I am a useless mug as a defender.
Sagna has been terrible since he returned from his latest broken leg. The mistakes he has made in the last 3 months he hasn't made for his entire Arsenal career. Jenkinson was in excellent form, he should not have been dropped for Sagna. I think Sagna wants to leave anyway. He looks uninterested & playing like he's never seen a football in his life.
Szczesny was a joke yesterday. His brains are clearly scrambled. Did you see when he tried to dribble in the box & gave the ball away?
Everything was horrible. His kicking (as always), coming for crosses, judgement...all of it horrific. Ironically an interview with him was published this week where he's complaining about how unfair the criticism of the defence is
Vermaelen is now awful. His drop off is probably the most drastic. To go from a potentially world class defender to useless mug in six months is shocking. Mertesacker also had a beautiful error
The only one who didn't mess up was Gibbs, who of course got injured...again. When Santos came on my heart sank
He is overweight & completely unfit. His mistake for the second goal was peak!Santos
Also the ball he gave away for Liverpool to nearly score in injury time. Did you see how out of breath & collapsed on the pitch he was at the end of the game? He played less than half & he was in that state
