1). This was worse than the performance at Carrow Rd at the weekend – we didn’t have a shot on target until the 93rd minute.
2). Schalke were very graciously awarded the Freedom Of The Arsenal Left Flank after about 20 minutes, which they very graciously accepted and thereafter ripped us to bits for the remainder of the game.
3). The Gervinho experiment seems to have stalled (to put it mildly) and not even Cazorla or Arteta could create anything when their teammates were so static, lacking in ideas, and displaying such a willingness to miscontrol and ball and concede possession so easily.
On the plus side: Nasri lost 3-1 to Ajax.
