The GK and defense looked like they’d met on the car park a few minutes before kick off. We had a strange mixture of looking very uncomfortable on the ball and lacking patience, too many times we miscontrolled the ball after a vertical pass, lost it and got hit on the counter. All their goals were preventable with a bit more aggression to close down.

And we still should have won if we’d converted the pretty straightforward second half chances.

Good fucking christ, if chambers ever has to play right back for us again, then he cannot be allowed to get within sight of the halfway line, never mind cross it. It was like he was running in quicksand at times yesterday.

The defending was truly pathetic.

Digne, Lenglet and especially Chambers were all absolute bin juice.

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

Why on earth did he play him there then? And he then compounded the error by keeping Chambers on too long when he was the worst player on the pitch by a very long way. Emery's been making some very strange decisions this season so far, and doesn't appear to be learning from his mistakes, which is a concern.

When I saw the defensive line up I was worried about the result. In Unai we trust though!

I was a bit concerned at how much time he spent sitting down last night.

Thought their defender was very lucky not to get a red card from that hack at Bailey.

Definite pull on Duran in the box.

Pretty well the entire game by the look of it. This has got a distinct feeling of Brian Little about it, something just doesn't seem quite right, and it can't all be down to losing Mings.

some of the players look quite unhappy eg. Kamara

Solidarity with everyone in the 1hr 30 min Passport queue at Luton Airport this morning. Welcome to Britain. <rolls eyes>
Wow. After getting up for a crazy early flight too. My sympathies. Hope it's improved by the time I land at 2.00pm.

You were happy with the team before k/o

At the time it was announced that Ashley Young was not given a contract extension, I thought then that it was a big mistake. He was so reliable last season. He's miles better than Chambers at  full back. To be fair, Chambers is better at CB or midfield, plus he's had next to no playing minutes this season.

Well he's 38 was probably main reason.

The big mistake was not replacing him with someone better than Cash. I also don't rate Digne.

We now have 2 very wll paid midfielders in Tielmans and Kamara who aren't delivering.

Add in Mings and Beundia long term injuries then squad doesn't look all that strong.

Rmsey and Moreno coming back should be big pluses mind

Personally I was happy ish with the team considering who is in the squad and who is available from that squad, but, why the fuck do we get rid of Young, or not buy a proper younger replacement so that when we rest Cash we have to play Chambers there? We then get Longlet in, why? With Mings injury I would have thought Konsa, Chambers for right, Pau for left and Carlos for either side. Spend the time and resources getting a proper right back instead.
The only thing I liked about the Tielemans deal was the price, he did well in pre season but at the moment we look like we have an asset that we can make a profit on but not really a useful player.
