You can't keep losing games when we have an extra player and expect to stay up. This team hasn't got the smarts or the balls to stay up.

Again, we'll blame our poor luck. Like teams at the bottom of the table so often do. You make your own luck, and we make so little of it.  When you can't beat a team when you have a 1 man advantage for 20, 50 minutes, you're just not good enough. 

We're going down. Again.

We are going down. Can’t finish off ten men, cant take chances and our only real striker is a poor man’s Heskey.

The writing is on the wall. It’s the same every week.

Hate to say, that was on Smith.

Mcginn was out on his feet, why wasnt there any substitutions? 

I can understand the natural way the game went to drop deep to protect the result but things needed refreshing.

We had it in us to hold that then.....so frustrating!

Disgrace. 

Playing against 10 men for half the game and a woeful Arsenal side and we completely fold.

No matter the manager of players we just can’t seem to shake this tendency to bottle it when the chips are down.

Sat back way, way, way too much.

We were the better team when on the front foot, but just kept sitting back. Infuriating.

I'd have thrown Davis on when we were more dominant to keep Arsenal with something more to deal with, and allow us to feel we can get up around him more. Easy to say in hindsight but felt it at the time.

Not **** good enough. We can't keep bottling it when we get into advantageous positions like this.

Very disappointed to get nothing from that game but our season won’t be defined by results at the Emirates. 

I wish we could kill teams off though.

Smith out of his depth I fear. Getting promoted with the second best squad in the Championship  and the Premier League is a whole different ball game.

First time I've ever given DS a very poor rating, but that is what his management was tonight.

We needed far too much work this summer. We’re short of a striker and two wingers. There’s no options from the bench and when players tire we have players like Lansbury who couldn’t even get in the Championship side to bring on.

This is the first time I'm seriously questioning Smith's ability at this level. Love the bloke, but his in game management is costing us big time. Doesn't seem to know how to react to what's going on on the pitch. Worrying.

Bigger transfer window and we do f all on the pitch. Some shocking subs and tactics applied in second half. Not good enough
