I think it is where we miss a player like Barkley

Sigurdsson and the other central midfielders are slow and none of them can't run at man and beat them to create their own space. I'm not sure Calvert Lewin could do what Abraham did at Molineux for Chelsea and stand up the centre back and then drop a shoulder and go by him.
Add the fact that there's a trend to crowd the middle of the park and I think that's why we knock the ball out wide a lot.
That said, neither Peter Reid nor Paul Bracewell were especially great at making their own chances and shooting but the 85 side did alright.
I've read a lot of posts blaming Silva's "Tactics". Tactic's had #### all to do with the goals we conceded yesterday.
And we were on top for most of the game yesterday, making double the amount of passes in the attacking third that Bournemouth did.
Ridiculous errors, shite decison making and horrendous bad luck has started creeping back into our game. I mean their second goal, ffs.
How many times in the second half especially, did we create a decent opportunity to attack through the middle, only to play the ball wide. Often playing it wide when were right on the edge of the box. Shoot ffs!
When we did keep it in the middle we looked like creating something. Iwobi got a shot off and if Keane had been a bit sharper he may done something. WE need to end this obession with working the ball wide. It's an affliction that goes all the way to Moyes and had a brief sabbatical during Roberto's reign.
Iwobi played like the lad most Arsenal fans said he was yesterday
