Arsenal must think that their Christmas 2021 has come early.

What's more sub zero, the temperature or the players confidence?

I hope Chelsea don't recall Gallagher, Allardyce has really harmed his impact.

They did that ages ago under Bilic.

And yet some fans thought Bilic was the only problem

Poor old ma-in-law (99) had a bathroom accident meaning I missed most of the second half with the old rubber gloves and bleach.  A lucky break for me, but at least I know how Sam must be feeling right now.
Rubber gloves and bleach aren’t going to clean up the mess we are in!

Johnstone thumps the ball with frustration about his defence.

Pride and effort is always questioned when teams are lacking in quality. 

They might be limited footballers, but in the main I think we have a fairly honest bunch. I think it will be hurting them and I don’t think they’ve tossed it off.

I’m sorry but they are just giving up after going behind. This could have been 8 or 9.

Remember this is an awful Arsenal side as well.

He was never the only problem but a problem that could be resolved. The bigger problems we can't shift.

And this is the worst squad we have ever taken into a premier league campaign

In fairness, so am I at the moment.
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.
Oh, and always remember to defecate on those Vile chaps in claret and spew.

The fallacy that our struggles were due to Bilic playing weird and wonderful team formations has been put to bed. The squad just isn't good enough. Embarrassing for Big Sam now. Just a month ago he told the board he could work with the team. Now he's going to have to tell them that he needs six new players and a huge cheque book.

You can say what you want about Bilic but the players were clearly playing for him.

He's been anonymous this half. Starved of the ball and when he has had it, he's held it too long hoping for someone to make a run.

Unfortunately the players have downed tools with the manager already.
Don’t think they ever picked them up !

Worse than our first promotion?

You’re probably right.

The appointment of Allardyce was not the answer. He will be long gone before the end of the season.

I'd say "demoralised" more than anything.

Forget the money they earn. Getting pumped again and again takes is going to take its toll. Sport is spoken about in fine margins, you lose your confidence and your head and it’s going to look horrendous.

He got more of a tune out of them than Sam has so far.  He even managed to get this 'shower' promoted just behind Leeds and the amazing Biesla.
I don't disagree but there is a gulf between Champ and Prem. Bilic got the second best squad in the Champ promoted. Not a miracle, not even an over achievement.
Between them, him and Allardyce will get the worst team relegated.
The difference is Bilic had the summer window and made a complete hash of it.
Give Allardyce the January one and he'll do the same,
