      Also surprising because we played a pretty strong team. When I saw the score I thought some U23 guys were involved. We got some problem.

      Shocking midfield performance yesterday, we had a strong team out last night and they were down to 10 so no excuses, a midfield of Hendo and Milner is not creative enough, with the never present Ketia and Thiago, and Ox looking a shadow of his former self we need major investment in midfield but we all know it won’t happen. Where do we go from here

      I did not see the match because I was not fine at all. As I'm reading the thread, Minamino lost a golden chance at the end.

      klopp said we lost our style and I think that players coming from Covid need to get their fitness back.

      Well hope you feel better soon!
      As for the game, it wasn’t just minamino. The midfield trio never works well. It doesn’t create anything and as firmino is hardly a goal scorer and minamino hasn’t found his feet it meant that even if arsenal had 8 men we would have struggled to create.

      As for our players coming back from covid im not sure avoit that. I think only Trent had it and the other people players had false positives.

      Like I said last night, was a good warmup match after almost 2 weeks with no proper game and limited training.

      We will be better Sunday, and even better by next Thursday to smash them at their gaff.

      We have had 3 games in 11 days, dont know why some are making out like nothing took place on Sunday.

      Also you cant on one hand have arguments for too many games or we need a winter break but then when the team play sh*te say its because we have not played enough games to be match fit

      Call a spade a spade, were playing well below ourselves. Shrewsbury our only win in 6 games

      It is mate.

      Let's face it we've seen performances like this even with the likes of Salah and Mane playing and as Jürgen says it's only half time.

      because the FA cup game wasn't a proper team, was mixmatch of u18s, u23s and some 1st team lads.

      And yes results have been very patchy, but again I put that down to all the stupid niggly injuries, and then the covid outbreaks.

      Im fully confident we will start to get some consistency back, and get back to winning ways.

      Still frustrating to think of last night.

      Trent gave nothing on his side, midfield as slow and ponderous as I've seen and front three not really gelling or knowing their roles.

      Trent will shake this off and a few tweaks to the front three, one being Jota playing middle or left, will help but the midfield is the biggest issue for me.

      None of them played well but we'll need Fabinho at the base and to get some sort of creativity I'd start Jones next two games and the third I'm struggling with as neither Hendo or Milner deserve a start but I don't fully trust Chamberlain.

      Too negative after the sending-off, too slow with changes, worst performance of the season!

      Teams looking for a point at Anfield must be thinking of starting with 10, as we look woeful against every side a man down this season!

      Hope Jürgen can sort us out by Sunday, as I don't fancy the 11 hour round-trip on supporters coach to watch that shower of sh##e!

      Was it though? To me it was very much our usual minus the genius of Salah. For some reason we wanted to plsy through the middle which was packed and without having a player who can hit that killer pass or open up those defences by running at them. Its all ball out to Robbo or Trent then back in to hendo or Fab repeat until someone shoots from outside the box

      Jones our only hope for that in my opinion

      Should have won. Didn't.
      Minamino is not the answer to games without Mane or Salah.
      Think we missed Origi in there, and the midfield looked much more creative once Curtis Jones came out.
      I know the space to give freedom for youth players is there, but really if that is to happen then don't start
      Milner and Hendo in this game.

      Did Ox do anything I really cant remember him doing much other than having a shot. Why didnt Morton get a chance alongside Curtis ?. I think the game will suit us more next week and still expect us to win.


      He had a run and shot over the bar, still closer than Matip's effort.

      Grim is what I call last night. Side to side around Arsenal's box with no impact. Plenty of possession and controlled the game, but we still never looked like we were scoring a goal.

      George Graham would of been proud of Arteta's tactics last night.

      You know Trent has been getting stick for a few games now, so a worry it's not just Covid. Other than that assist for Mo I seem to remember him getting a fair bit of criticism for his lazy play as of late. But like yous aid, I think he will shake this off. Without some creativity from midfield though I fear we are going to see more games like this so I just hope we can take advantage of the chances we do (hopefully) create.

      If Jones starts he will have to be a bit more imposing we neef some one creative. And the odd goal from both defence and midfield wouldnt go amiss

      You have to start Jones next Thursday. Use Milner late, incase you go to pens or you need to see the game out with a lead.

      Is straight to pens if were tied or do you go to extra time? I know the away goal rule is gone.

      Is playing TAA in the MF and playing Joe or Neco a possibility with where we are atm?

      It's a big game to 'experiment ' in but Trent could be our most creative midfielder and one that carries a goal threat. I'd try it on Sunday, we won't do though.
