It was a disgraceful day to be a Gunner and the players must be ashamed of themselves as a poor Blackburn Rovers side showed up and turned us over 1-0 in the FA Cup.
The Gunners carved out a number of chances to take the lead but failed to make the breakthrough and were made to pay in the 72nd minute when Kazim-Richards pounced on a rebound to score for Rovers
Twenty shots at goal, seventy-two per cent possession and sixteen corners tell us that we dominated the game and should have blown the Championship side away without any trouble.
But as we all expected Arsene Wenger underestimated the lowly side and he decided to rest his key players and save them for the Champions League tie in midweek when our best chance of silverware is in the domestic cup.
It was a poor choice by the boss as he saw his side, who are fifth in the Premier League, get knocked out of a cup by a side that on paper shouldn’t be on the same pitch as us.
When is he going to get it through his stubborn head that he cannot do the job anymore, there is only one way at Arsenal and that is his way? And he is determined to prove that the way he plays the game will eventually be successful.
I love Arsenal and will always support the team, but it is an absolute joke that we have been knocked out today.
And it is time for a change, starting with the boss!
