I can remember when we were nearly this bad and it was the 1982/83 season.
I remember standing on the North Bank at Highbury on a mid week match seeing us only just win in a thrilling game against Villa with about 15,000 in attendance.
A few weeks earlier we had been outplayed at home by a rising Watford team where we lost 4-2 in front of about 28,000.
Scum were much better than us that season. You didn’t feel that confident before playing anyone at home although to be fair even then I would have been more optimistic of beating teams like Wolves at home than we are now.
We have become a financial super power in world football since then thanks to the likes of David Dein, George Graham and the early Wenger years. However the last 11 years (which coincided with Mr Stan joining the Board) have been a continued decline.
I am hoping Raul may be the one to stop the rot but his slow response to the growing emergency continues to disturb. I do think however he will be forced by player and fan unrest to act soon although it is a shame we should have to have waited for the dressing room to start turning against Emery before he really starts getting into any kind of action.
Emery has lost the dressing room or large parts of it for sure now. The team have lost the plot and we were completely out played by little Wolves in the second half yesterday.
