Could say we drop in class again as we face relegation certainties Cardiff.
Good test for the Enery system as we are away and players will need to be at it from the start.
Lacazette gotta start up front with ABU and the mighty midget in from the start.
Keep I've got a cold Oznil away and let's make sure we are up for what's at the least is going to be a battle.

Cardiff got hammered by Norwich at home yesterday, hopefully, this bodes well for us or does it?

Far from convincing but at least it's a win.
How Ramsey was not subbed I just don't know as he has be come a poor player.
Usual Suspects Ozil and by far the worse Xhaka again gave nothing and if anything helped Cardiff.
The mighty midget done more in the little time he had on than all the midfield put together, a quality player who's name should be first on the team sheet.
Defence again can't handle pressure or crosses and Czech should retire now.
Upfront does look promising but deserve better service,

The new defensive strategy of playing out from the back is not good on the eye and seriously gives heart palpitations! Presumably we have worked on this for a few weeks now but Cech always seems like a nightmare waiting to happen and the defensive cover is still as loose as in previous seasons.

Okay, I accept that it will not be a quick fix but for heavens sake focus on stop conceding so many goals! Some poor individual performances today and I hope the new boss is going to be tough when he needs to be.

It really does look like same old same old; panicked defending, over elaboration in front of goal yet just getting away with it. Their first goal came directly from a terrible pass from Granny Shaga, the second from a ridiculous ref's decision. I long for the days when we'd go somewhere like Cardiff and see them off in the first half hour. I don't like this watching through my fingers as we scrape past.

It doesn't look like Cech is ever going to get this play out from the back business so why not give the new bloke a go? The new short bloke looks a hell of a better proposition when he comes on and should be starting IMO ahead of GX.

we will see Leno as soon as the cups come round . Hopefully some of the other fringe players will get the chance to pressurise the manager to find places for them.

Looks like we have a manager who's more patient than thd majority of the fanbase (hardly difficult though....We're 4 games in ffs ! ).

Cech shouldn't be dropped because of his poor footwork. He should be dropped because he's not good enough to be in nets behind a defence so short of solidity at present. The amount of action he's seeing is exposing him for the has-been he is.

Lovely pairing up front, but shore things up at the back a bit fellas.

Early days.
