    You must have been watching a different game. We had a go from the start, Arsenal then took control and we hgve two awful goals away through the usual horrific defending. Guess what, they’re a better team than us and in the first half we just played badly.
    In the 2nd half we played well, scored an excellent goal and could have had another, possibly a couple.
    But hey, let’s not give Carver any credit for the turn-round. That would be admitting weakness.
    If we’d been 2 up at HT, and then played like drains in the2nd half you’d have blamed him. So give him credit when the team plays better.
    No one is happy with the way things are, but the infantile need to continually blame Carver is pathetic. The best manager or coach in the world would struggle to do better with the sh!te he’s given to work with. 13 fit senior players, it’s a disgrace and there’s only one person to blame. Ashley and his twisted and flawed business model
    Previously Pardew was the easy scapegoat. He was apparently the worst manager we’ve ever had. Looks like he’s actually not that bad after all.

    This is a defeat I can handle ,ok two poor goals to concede. Self inflicted errors , but you can’t fault the effort put in for the second half ,it proves average players can do ok ,if they play as a team and try 100% .That attitude shown in the second half will see us home to safety ,so come on lads keep it up.

    Double Carpet I give credit to 5 players who came out 2nd half and played like they could and wanted to. Once JC’s first half ‘tactics’ went out the window, we had a competitive display.
    Wasn’t he the bloke )Coach) who said he had something ‘up his sleeve’?  
    JC is PART of the problem, like it or not. And if you do believe the Ashley regime is to blame then what are you prepared to do about it?
