They played like a preseason tour game. They lacked passion, ambition and direction.
And once again AW got the team selection wrong.
How can Diaby play at the left wing is beyond us. And Hleb should have been substituted in the first half! He was shocking. Rosicky should have started the game instead.
Fabregas needs a strong defensive midfielder next to him. Arsene refuses to acknowledge it. AW's only excuse is that he is trying to give more experience to Denilson so that next year there is a readily available alternative to Fabregas. Something that has been lacking this season.
And Clichy and Eboue were obviously short of games. As a result they could not give that attacking impetus that we expected in our previous posting.
Baptista is a joke. How can AW even consider buying him in the first place is beyond us. He would have probably turned out to be his worse ever signing after Jeffers.
We hope that Mr. Wenger does not make the same selections for the next game.
