Didn’t look like the players were that interested in this competition.

"But most of all we have a lot of players who desperately want to do well in Europe.”


Source: Cash: 'We're desperate to do well in Europe'
The body language didn’t reflect that, it maybe that they were intimidated by the crowd and aggression of Legia, we were pathetically weak and passive.

Well, they probably all need a full pre-season, time to gel, a lot more game time, and a few games on the bench to reflect upon what they've done.

Anyway, I'm glad the thread has not descended into full Ronnie Bickering mode. We lost by a goal for our first game in Europe, and there are other games to come so we can put things right with the universe.

On reflection in that type of game against that type of opponent there are two core things you need to do. One - defensively you have to be intense, closing space and putting them under pressure. Two - when you have the ball you have to move it with pace to stop them being able to organise and regroup.

For most of the game we did neither of those things. Add to that the fact we made some dreadful errors and it’s not a surprise we lost.

Liverpool smashed us without getting out of second gear. Palace cut us open with ease at times. The signs were there so why oh why we went with a reshuffled defence with god awful Chambers, piss weak at defending Digne and a debutant CH i just don't understand. First black mark for Unai in my opinion.
What's pissing me off most about Emery is he is starting to look like a cheque book manager . All the youth fucked off out and the likes of Lenglet and Tielemans bought in . Prove me wrong please but the young hungry vibe sat better with me

You’ve gone about a year or two early here.

Not much to add to whats been said. I was pretty happy with the selection before, using the squad etc, but in hindsight and all that. All the players pretty terrible so not one individuals fault, Chambers could though arguably retire on that performance.

Oh and our soaked nappy shirts are fucking rubbish.

And why so many empty seats in the Villa end?

All in all a rubbish result, but I know we're better than we're showing. I don't like us much today, that's for sure.

Its difficult at this level to see a player have as much time and space as what they did for the first goal........... And then came the 2nd, fucking hell!

Chambers is definitely not an Emery fullback. Too slow - can't bomb forward, can't chase back.

The dust has settled, the rage has abated, I've got my eyesight back and, well, it was utterly utterly awful, but I suppose it was a bit of a strange night all round. Brighton lost by the same score but at home to AEK, Fiorentina couldn't get past Genk, even Liverpool struggled past a team I had literally never, ever heard of.

Yes, it was a very poor night, but we still finish top of this group if we win every other game, which is far from beyond the realms of the possible. Just beat Chelsea please you useless bastards.

Or receive a pass under pressure.

Maybe we should have brought in someone to challenge Cash then? We had all summer to..
