Another fruitless outing for Arsenal at Stoke City

Dear oh dear, Arsenal crumbled again. Arsenal first half self destruction allowed Stoke City to put three past the shambolic defense. It was one of those games. Abject defending, insipid attack and lack of spirit. Arsenal fans must be livid at such lack of character by the team especially in the first half.

Stoke city didn’t wait for long before getting in front. Crouch scored within the first 20 seconds of the game. Arsenal defenders were absolutely oblivious of the danger their opponents posed in counter attacks and set pieces. In the process, they let in three easy goals.

Arsenal’s resurgence in the second half wasn’t enough as Stoke held on. Their spirited second half performance was not helped by the sending off of Chambers for a second yellow.

Arsene Wenger’s post match interview drawing out positives from the match doesn’t help the situation. Arsenal looked ill prepared for this game despite their repeated hoodoo at Britannia Stadium. After a recent winning run, the defeat at Stoke sees the team back to square one.

In Arsene we trust?
