We struggle against Swansea. Lost away this season, drew at home last season, lost at home the season before that. Think we lost against them the season they came up as well.

Think Wenger will SHUFFLE THE PACK and we'll draw.

Same starting eleven for the 5th game on the bounce which is the longest streak under Wenger.

That is how you play away to the top sides, what a great performance. If Monk was a foreign boss everyone would hail that as a tactical masterclass for the ages.

First half we played as if the season was over already, no urgency what so ever. Second half we were much better but we couldn't finish in a brothel today. Swansea were incredibly lucky to win to be honest, showed nothing up front but defended well to be fair. Oh well, puts second more or less out of our hands but third is still very attainable.

Walcott still looks way off. Doesn't anticipate balls coming in well at all and his finishing was poor. We should have kept Giroud on and played Walcott out wide, it's frustrating that the only time we tried to get down the channels all game was when the target man was off the pitch, it just doesn't make sense.

Boo's at FT I'm hearing - embarrassing.

Not the first time Swansea have won at the Emirates is it?

Wenger is complaining that Swansea didn't want to play....suggesting they only defended.

There is why Arsenal will never ever compete at the top level under Wenger. Embarrassing.

What were you expecting, cheers?
I've seen us lose many a game, and not every one have we been booed off.

I just think - if you put it into perspective, 3rd in the Premier League, game in hand over Manchester City in 2nd, and what was that, the first loss at home all season?

It's incredibly fickle - I don't know what more Arsenal fans expect, in comparison of what they spend compare to the Chelsea's, United's, City's etc, and you're set to finish above your adopted 4th place for the first season in a few years.

They are booing the result, not the players or the manager.

Still makes no sense.

The result is earned by the players and manager, so the majority of it would be directed at both of them.
