The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are looking pretty glum today. It was yet another disappointing evening for them last night, with Man City following up their Carabao Cup final win with another victory over the Gunners.
In truth, it was a near complete performance from Man City. In typical fashion, the game was pretty much over by the time the half-time whistle was blown, with the Citizens going into the break 3-0 up against Arsene Wenger’s team.
You would think that such a one-sided half would lead to an attempted fightback from the Gunners, but that certainly wasn’t the case. They looked poor in the second-half, despite not conceding again, and in truth, they never stood much chance of clawing anything out of the game.
Indeed, it looked as though the players had given up, and judging by a bizarre decision by Arsene Wenger, it seems that the Frenchman had thrown the towel in too.
Despite losing the game for much of its duration, Wenger made the strange decision not to utilise his substitutes bench – with a total of 0 changes being made by Arsenal throughout the game. Granted, it wasn’t the strongest lineup of potential replacements, but still, after the first half display – surely they could have could have made more of an impact than what was already on the field.
Wenger didn’t seem to agree, though, and it’s fair to say that didn’t go down well over on Twitter. Arsenal fans have since taken to the site to discuss the move – or, indeed, the lack thereof – and the negative response is pretty clear.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
