what a match!
Gutted! I switched off at half time to play some Little Big Planet. I thought Arsenal would have won being up 2-1 at half time. It just keeps getting worse for the gunners.
Fantastic game, the second half was electric (as long as you aren't an arsenal fan) Premier league doubters eat more humble pie...
Heh, 2 own goals in a game doesn't happen that often =/
Who do Arsenal fans want as their next manager??? Carlo Ancelotti Mark Hughes Guus Hiddink Martin O'Neill Rafael Benitez They would be my guesses. Wenger has 4 points out of 15 this season, shocking!
benitez would be good, dont know if they would give him the time, o'niell and hughes would make them defend better but they would make the team boring to watch too.
oniel would be a nice replacement.. but wenger would never get sacked
Seriously? He would bring Arsenal down faster than a landslide like he did Liverpool and Inter. He's overrated anyway!
Mourinho when he gets bored
None of those managers will go to Arsenal, maybe Hughes or Ancelotti but those two want a break from football.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer! Probably not gonna happen in a million years though
great game to watch lots of goals but Arsenal's defence is just not good enough you can't concede so many goals
Oh that was disgusting... Koscielny and Djourou are rubbish and Santos and Mertesacker weren't good either
I hope Wenger's proud of himself
Mertesacker didn't do jack, Ramsey is play out of Position, Santos played blackburn onside, Koscienly is having a nightmare, so = Blackburn scored 2 and Arsenal scored 5 great match for the neutral, but a poor game for Arsenal
So the new signings Per and Santos didn't live up to expectations?
mertesacker was never good enough for arsenal i dont know why wenger bought hims hes poor technically and has no pace.. yeas hes tall but he had an easy header on goal in the last min and was wayy of target.. so what does he bring to the team. inability to land samba and cahill will cost them dearly this season
Yup good thing Kenny didn't go for Mertesacker this summer and went for Coates!
on contrary im kinda impressed with per last nite. yes its not his top performance but good enough. its just the other defenders dont do their task very well.
@ngecenk you could get away with him if he was partnered with vermaelen or a cahill/samba type but when back line all depends on him i dont think hes good enough
To be fair it was Mertesacker's third game for Arsenal and Santos's first, you can't judge players squarely on such a short amount of time. They both looked way off the pace, but at least give them a chance to settle in. It's not like they had a pre-season to get to know their new colleagues.
Does anyone take Arsenal seriously anymore?
looks like arsenal are going to be a mid table team. :( oh well com'on United :)
I really shouldn't post this but this is just one of the jokes floating around the Internet right about now "I feel sorry for Arsenal, they have been dealing with the 8-2 wordplay jokes 4-3 weeks now."
Whats happened to Arsenal!? 8 years ago they were the most feared team in the Prem...now there the laughing stock.
Because they have never replaces those who left the team from Adam to Henry, and Viera and even Seaman, but at least the GK is good, but players like, Vermaelen always injured, Koscienly errors prone, Walcott and Arshavin always up and down nothing like Pires or Ljungberg, Viera, RVP (more time in the treatment room than on the pitch) they're just all over the places
Liverpool didn't start much better last season, I wouldn't write them off just yet.
Koscielny is just not good enough, mertersacker and santos are new to the club but Koscielny's been there for a year now, its unacceptable.
this is just shocking, something needs to change big time, arsenal are becoming the liverpool from 2 seasons ago
things not going well for arsenal at all.
By all these comments above .. Apparently mertesacker is a bad player judging on one game.. smh.
true, you can't really judge the new players before january.. no matter how worse they are as of now.
Problem with arsenal is not replacements, but having strength in depth. Arsenal outplayed blackburn for most of the match, but the defence of arsenal is the worst it's ever been. Just like i said for the utd game. Arsenal scored 2 against utd, but poor defence killed us. Same thing again today. They don't have a problem scoring goals, but they do have a problem letting stupid goals in, and 2 own goals in a match, plus 1 offside goal for blackburn. Once wenger buys much better defenders, we will be hard to beat. On the subject of utd, they were very lucky to draw 1-1. They were outplayed all match against benfica.
