It was another frustrating day at Villa Park on Saturday. We drew with a team who’s a**’ were whooped 5-0 by Man City a week before which makes you wonder what’s wrong with Arsenal?

We created very minimal chances, with the best probably falling to , who hit the ball over the bar with his weaker foot from six-yards out.

Contrary to what people are saying, I feel produced a good display and gave it his all.

I’m not a big fan of , but his presence was missed. He offers us pace down the flank and because of this can latch on to any through balls played to him, unlike . We should give the speedy basterd what he wants because he’s very crucial to the team.

was my MOTM. The German defender brings a lot of calmness to our back-line.

But in whole it wasn’t a sufficient performance from our boys.

In other news, we’ve been linked with a move for Liverpool winger . But if he can’t get into Liverpool’s starting eleven, how will he get into the Arsenal set up.

Arsene Wenger is ‘losing it’ day by day. At times I feel as if we should sign a sporting director, like the way Real Madrid did. Someone whose responsibility is to sign players, as Wenger continues to frustrate in this area.

The January transfer window will be a really crucial time for Arsenal football club – it’ll determine whether we’ll finish in the top for or not, in my opinion.

Let’s hope Le Prof will acquire some top-notch players during the winter to aide our cause/

I love Arsenal and Wenger, but the current crop of players at the club can’t guarantee us a top four finish, not if recent results are to go by.
