    Always losing and fucking up their chances of the title, they will do well to come back from 2-0 down at Bournemouth. Another goal from Wilson albeit a pen, will hopefully add another million to his value

    Arsenal must be infuriating to their fans.

    I watch them and see lovely football and a great flow to their play, but they are always over embellishing things.

    So many times they get near to the box (just saw them do that right now) and they get into great positions, but then pass the ball to someone in a worse position. So, someone right in front of goal, shooting chance, but then plays the ball out wide hoping to get into a closer position with a one two or suchlike.

    I think they should be doing much better than they have done over the past few years.

    A lot of games it all comes off and they look like world beaters, but so many times they tippy tappy all day long, one twoing their way up the field and go from one side of the field and back again, get in great positions and don't finish it off when they get the chance.

    They just are not ruthless under Wenger
    Not for around 15 of his years there.

    Eddie Howe should bench the lot of them next game.

    3-0 up and lie down like babies.

    Yep. Ruthless-less sums them up nicely.

    Overplay so many times, no killer instinct. Man City are guilty of the same thing on occasion. Overplaying until they are no longer in a dangerous attacking position.

    Arsenal are kings though.
