Jamie Carragher was appalled by Theo Walcott's comments after Crystal Palace defeat

Danny Welbeck

I can say with confidence that this is the season Arsenal will finish behind Tottenham for the first time since 1995.

That was Arsene Wenger's first major error on the night.

"The fact that we've lost a few away games: it's really unusual". It's a big worry.

"The club is Arsene Wenger's from top to bottom because he's been there that long, and rightly so".

But Micky Gray told Jim White on talkSPORT Arsenal should look closer to home, and focus their attentions on hiring Palace boss Allardyce as Wenger's successor.

After Arsenal's humiliating 3-0 defeat at Crystal Palace on Monday night, AST board member Akhil Vyas confirmed that an overwhelming majority of the trust remain in favour of Wenger stepping down as manager. "It was more painful for us to lose this game in the way we lost it".

"In the second half, they came out strong, scored the second goal and from then on you could see it was more hard".


The blueprint generally has been a 4-2-3-1 in which the full backs push forwards and technical midfielders of a similar ilk to each other play a short passing game and look to pick their way through opposition defences. It's really unusual. We were unbeaten for a long time away from home, and now we can not win.

"Now it's time for him to go", Hartson said, saying Arsenal's showing against Palace was "inept - there was a lack of leadership, a lack of togetherness". Arsenal's shocking surrender leaves them in sixth place, lagging seven points behind fourth placed Manchester City.

Former Arsenal right-back Lee Dixon was also critical of the players, posting on his Twitter account: "Sometimes players have nights where nothing goes right.

It's damaging of course but top four is hard for us, it is a hard defeat and it has consequences on our chances to be in the top four". "You could sense that from the kick-off".

There was a vocal contingent of disgruntled Arsenal supporters calling for the manager's head and their appetite for change will not have been sated by another miserable display.

"A loss there [Middlesbrough] and it could be similar to Palace with the away end unbearable again", he said.
