‘No longer good enough’ – Arsenal fans on Twitter react as veteran speaks out

The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are wondering what it takes to win a football match away from The Emirates after they lost 2-1 at St James Park to make it six Premier League away games in 2018 without a win. Petr Cech spoke after the game in an interview for the Arsenal website, claiming that the Gunners’ second-half performance sums up their current away form.

Arsenal, believe it or not, actually played well in the first half of yesterday’s visit to St James Park. Arsene Wenger’s side should’ve carried more than the 1-1 scoreline into half-time as Ayoze Perez equalised for the Magpies after Alexandre Lacazette opened the scoring. With the game there to be won for either side, Arsenal showed why they’re yet to pick up an away point this year when Matt Ritchie completed the Newcastle turn around to secure all three points without any form of reply from the Londoners.

The Arsenal fans propping our bar up will be looking at the Premier League table as Burnley sit just two points behind them in 7th, with the aim of cracking the top six. Arsene Wenger’s only respite comes in Europe, the Gunners face a huge Europa League semi-final tie against Atletico Madrid in just over a week and will be piling all their resources into the competition. Winning Europe’s second-tier competition provides direct entry into the Champions League as doing so via their league place is a long way away for Wenger.
