Lot of loose passes at the back today
Too many loose passes period. Been dreadful in possession.

This has been really hard to watch. No real urgency to get back into this at all.

Does the ball weigh 50kg for Schar or something?

A truly awful performance from everyone, there's absolutely nothing positive to take away from this game.

Ah, so nice to have football back isn’t it.

Lots of players miles off the pace, Almiron trying to do it all, no clear plan, sloppy passing, subs coming on and not knowing which position they should be in, ASM quick but seems to just put his head down and run...plenty to work on. Only troubled the Arsenal goal once all game.

Well that was s****!

Can't quite decide whether it was poor tactics or poor performances across the board (not a single player stood out as playing well). I'm leaning towards it being both.
