Was at the Emirates yesterday, wonderful stadium to look at from the outside and probably the most comfortable I've ever been sat inside a football stadium but those are the only positive things I can say about Arsenal after yesterday.
The biggest problem that Arsenal had was lack of movement, you would often see Santi or Wilshire with the ball in the middle of park and you had the likes of Walcott, Podolski, Chamberlin, Giroud, Gervinho just stood there being man marked and expecting those 2 to make something happen instead of creating space for themselves meaning then that the ball would just go back to the defenders or to the goalkeeper.
Defensively Arsenal were also poor often finding themselves out of position and looking like a nervous child any time a Swansea player was running at them and what Jenkinson was doing before Swansea's 2'nd goal I will never know.
But credit to Swansea they played very well, Defensively they did what they had to do and some of the passing was something you would expect from an Arsenal team 3 or 4 seasons ago, Michu took his chances brilliantly and the Swansea fans were also in good voice and often mocking the Arsenal fans for the there lack of of singing.
