Arsenal 1 C Palace 1: Sad, sad, sad

1. The real sadness is that despite his love for the club, Arsene seems to not understand the fans, our needs and, goddamit, how to give us good PR. In his singlemindedness, he comes across as aloof and dogmatic, which only serve to exacerbate the alienation of fans.

2. There's been a lot of unecessary anger towards Arsene, but to be honest that is part of what he is paid £8m a year 4. He is not an old man in the street getting abuse for no reason whilst out collecting his pension. He is also being paid money which fans contribute towards.

3. So much of what annoys us as fans seems to be as a result of Arsene's attempts to manage team psychology - keeping calm, not b*llocking them, always talking in the positive and at the end of the day rarely acknowledging our problems in public. These things don't come over well at the best of times, but when team psychology is so obviously shot, they are as welcome as a junkie in your grandma's medicine cabinet.
