Arsenal are absolutely clueless, blasts former Gunners star
The former Arsenal striker was less-than-impressed by Tuesday night's draw with Anderlecht
Paul Merson has branded Arsenal as “tactically clueless” after the Gunners squandered a three-goal lead against Anderlecht on Tuesday night.
Arsene Wenger’s side appeared on course to book their place in the last 16 of the Champions League after taking a 3-0 lead but a second-half fightback from the Belgian team stunned The Emirates as they snatched a 3-3 draw in north London.
And ex-Gunner Merson was less-than-impressed by the manner in which Arsenal were pegged back.
“I think they are tactically clueless, that’s an honest opinion,” Merson said on Sky Sports.
“This is not the first time it’s happened, it’s happened a lot. It’s absolutely clueless. For me the manager has to get a message on, but these are international footballers, they are not little kids.
“They play for their countries, in World Cups, in the Premier League, and they are all bombing forward.
“Surely something in your head, if you know football, you say let’s stop here, let’s have two banks of four, leave two up front and let them us break us down. It’s clueless as football knowledge.”
