There is too many problems in the Arsenal squad for Emery to sort out, he needs time.
It seemed like Emery was conflicted with what he wanted to do in the second half - and that indecisiveness is what cost us.
It was abundantly clear that Emery told the players at Half Time to be disciplined and play for the draw. It was a complete reversal of how we played in the first half. And it's a very dangerous game to play as we showed Chelsea way too much respect by giving them so much space.
But then, with 15 minutes left at 2-2, he replaces Iwobi with Lacazette, which indicated he wanted the third goal despite having played most of the second half for a draw.
If he wanted to play for the 2-2 draw, he should have stuck with that plan and perhaps put Elneny on to help shore up things in the final minutes. The ambivalent nature of his second half tactics is what cost us in the end.

4 games in, and at the International Break, I think Emery has done the bare minimum of what was expected. Everyone conceded the first two matches (City, Chelsea) and then we got two expected wins after that (West Ham, Cardiff).
Things I like:
The pressing Making substitutions when needed Subbing off star players like Ozil when needed Guendouzi looks like an incredible talent Torreira has been sharp whenever he's come on Aubameyang and Lacazette look like great mates both off and on the pitch
Things I don't like:
Playing out from the back - as we don't have the personnel The high line we play - we're going to be caught out
At the moment, we're on a good run. But let's take it game by game. I'm liking the fight and desire the team has, and Emery has gotten the best out of players who the fan's were critical of like Iwobi, Xhaka and Bellerin. Still think we're weak at Center back, and that we need a world class winger. But Leno, Torreira, Guendouzi and Sokratis have been very good signings so far.
The early form from Lacazette has been fantastic and him and Aubemeyang look a lethal duo.
The real test for us is when we play some of the top 6 sides. We badly need to win some of those games to shit up the doubters.
BugmenAndBoxes: I was catching up on the Matt Morgan podcast and got to the part where Noel refuses to let Matt tell the story of how Dead In The Water was written, but does mention it was written in response to thinking he could one up a song he heard... Bold?

World71R: It might be Once. That was directly aimed tied into Liam's relationship with Noel and both songs have that ballad feel to them.

moonlightdriver: Wow, Just noticed the riff at the very end of the Familiar To Millions version of Gas Panic sounds like the intro of Magic Pie (somewhere around 7 mins). Am I hallucinating or... ?
