Some Arsenal fans are furious with the side’s performance in the first-half of tonight’s Europa League knockout tie against Slavia Prague, in an encounter that is respectfully very unevenly matched.The Gunners dominated the possession with a 59% hold of the ball but registered just one shot on target, considering the team that is out there, that is simply not good enough at all.Arsenal have been accused of showing ‘no fight’, ‘desire’, ‘hunger’ and of being ‘boring’ by some of their fans after the frustrating opening 45 minutes.The best chance of the opening period fell to wonderkid Bukayo Saka, but the 19-year-old somehow put the ball well wide with a horrid finish, wasting a glorious opportunity for the side to take the lead.See More: Arsenal given a surprise second chance to sign free agent star this summer as Euro giants forced to abandon agreed dealHere is how some of the Arsenal faithful have reacted to the team’s performance in the first-half:
Honestly if that’s good enough for Mikel sack him. He’s so lucky there’s no fans there they’d be getting booed off

No fightNo desireNo intentNo hungerNo intensityNo determinationNo aggressionNo passion
So boring to watch. If we want to win this game & win subsequent games & go far further in this competition, we’ve got a lot of work to do. ?

Players aren’t playing with any hunger and desire…. I don’t see us competing with any top team like this.
Whats wrong with the players? Arteta cannot be blamed anymore!

Worrying display! Are the players tired,or they can’t understand the coach tactics? Wow at home and we seems to be getting bossed around. Poor poor attitude Frome the players in the last two games

The display has done no favours for Mikel Arteta, it’s really not a good sign if a Premier League side that have big aspirations after years of misery, are struggling to create or are just being downright negative.The North London outfit need to be much better in the second-half of the tie if they really are serious about making the most of the home leg, otherwise tonight’s slow start could ruin the entire tie…
