Just got back from the game, blimey it's a slog.

Somewhat embarrassed by all the anti Arsenal chanting, such small club mentality.

First half was some of the best football we have played in ages. Nice to see some passion from Rodrigo when he was subbed off 👀

Son looked exhausted and his miss doesn't remind me of the Son of past times.

Have i missed something. I actually thought we played well and the players wanted to win tonight?

I'd understand the anger from him if we got humiliated but for large parts it was promising. Need a striker and a worldie Ortega performance.

where was this from him when we got battered by Newcastle, Liverpool, Chelsea etc
I also thought we played well tonight but I honestly think his anger was mainly directed towards the mentality of the fans, especially considering he had some gobshite behind him apparently telling him the throw the game all night.
I really don't think he was angry at the team because apart from not having a bloody striker, we played some really good football.

I think his anger is entirely down to the way the fans behaved and it took him by surprise.
I may well be wrong but that's what I saw tonight.

This is an alcohol driven rant, right?
In which case I'm right there with you!
Sick of this fucking loser mentality and cheering because our rivals may not win.
Fuck them, it's about us and only us.
No more weak bullshit.

Yeah, I've been to the pub, good spot, I'm a bit ranty.
3 trophies in 40 years and Ange's league cup selection is being picked apart.. ridiculous.
Honestly, I'm not surprised Ange is fed up tonight, he absolutely knows how delicate and weak our fanbase is, and that's understandable from the years of nearly but not quite..
But.
I never want my club to lose.

It takes an alcohol fuelled ranter to recognise one! 🤣
I'm with you though, I've really struggled to control myself tonight, with some of the stuff that's been said.

I get that we all have different opinions and stuff but sweet jesus, some people's opinions get drunken me a little uppity!

Just back from the game and I didn’t enjoy that one bit. To be relieved that Arsenal probably won’t win the league is one thing but openly celebrating City’s goals and then sing about Arsenal was awful. I’m 45 and I get it but we really need to be bigger than this. I want us to be the ones fighting for titles not celebrating that someone else has fallen short. I haven’t watched Anges interview yet but it sounds like he’s pissed off and he’s probably right.

How I read it too to be honest. He specifically mentioned "outside the club". The whole spectacle has been pathetic today, online, and in the stadium, and epitomises how small-time we have become as a fanbase. Rather debasing ourselves to ruin someone else's day than focus on actually making any progress towards our own goals. Caring more about the banter.

Can't imagine Ange has much time for that to be honest given the nature of his job and his drive. The Poznan celebrations and constant Arsenal chanting are a shame on us, frankly. I'm proud of the what we tried to do today as a team and hopeful for where were going, but reading some of the absolute dribble I've for some stupid reason subjected myself to today has definitely made me sad to be associated with the pathetic mentality of some of our support. We truly look like the banter club that some are so scared of becoming, but they're also the ones making us look that way and don't see it, or care, and rather blame Daniel Levy for how they act.

This was a big game with top 4 on the line bit it didn’t feel like it where I was sitting. More like an fa cup 3rd round atmosphere and whilst most people were supportive of the team, it quickly turned after we went 1-0 down. There is a line and you know it when you see it. ‘Stand up if you hate Arsenal’ in the first half, ok I can get on board, but ‘are you watching Arsenal’ when we go down? Fuck off. People getting carried away with online Twitter bullshit in real life. Really fucked off with how tonight panned out and I hope this never happens again

I thought the first half was excellent with the squad we have, really engaging.
I'm disappointed that our fanbase have been pushed into supporting a rivals loss than our win.
Hopefully we can slowly change a few minds

To be fair - he also mentioned "inside the club" - which suggests some of the players mentalities are not where he wants them
And fair enough, I'm sure that's the case too. Though in the cold light of tomorrow I'm sure he'd agree that we actually played very well for almost all of the actual match.

But he's specifically called the fans out there is the main point. And he's right.

I’ve come here after r/coys. Good to see a bit more common sense in here for a change! Absolute small club mentality being shown over there.

Frankly I think the whole hating arsenal narrative is immature and petty. Hating a club that came from the other side of london to be your neighbour how many years ago!

F*ck that, stupid childish narrative. We can still want to always be better than them but in a sportsman like competitive they’re our annoying younger brother type way.

Just got back from match.
Turned off the tripe on Talk Radio on way back to get away from Jamie O'Hara, so only just picking up the Ange comments.
All I can say is that got totally fed up with some of our supporters today, too much about that lot down the road than backing team - particularly second half.
Small time mentality which is why club is where it is.
Game lacked passion and ground lacked atmosphere.
Better team won but strange when home support is almost backing them.
Never want to be in this situation again.

A scenario that fucks our coach off because some fans aren't backing him or the club to win, it's pathetic.

Yep, I'm at the point where I don't care, I'm 46, it's a childish rivalry and I want what's best for us.

Not quite. You could see it with the Levy out brigade too. Not being able to see that despite his missteps, he’s done a great job in setting us up for success. It hasn’t arrived as trophies yet but the structure is there now (we’ve made progress going from mid table, to being in finals, including champions league final. Regulars in the top 4 and even challenging for the title - the next step is for levy to back the manager and us fans to support the team.)

And also, even after one really bad performance/loss (of which can happen to any team), where fans were saying Ange is found out, we can’t defend etc. like have some patience, he’s trying to turn the club around and build something.

No wonder I don’t go on social media, the last thread was spurs news but some of our fans can be so toxic

No, I actually agree with all the above you've said.

But its the context of it and can be seen as what i've suggested it is, even though I agree he wants more.

A better example. Ange playing second string against fulham in the cup with 1 game a week. That was fucking weak mentality.
But he explained that. He wanted to see how the alternative players could play, he had to see them at some point because we were doing well in the league and to throw them in there would have disrupted our flow.

He learnt a lot from that game about the players and future scenarios.

The result was my 2nd preferred, a Spurs win was my first and a draw last. All the singing and jollity when we were losing 0-2 was embarassing to me.
Proud of the effort from the team though and as per the last couple of months we are lacking quality in the last third.
