After seeing your club restore some sort of glory this past EPL season, the Arsenal players representing their national sides struggled to continue that form.
The Gunners are one of the most represented clubs in Poland/Ukraine with ten players sporting the colors of their country. But of those ten only three got wins, Germans Per Mertesacker who did not play and Lukas Podolski who has not played for Arsenal yet and the Danes Nicolas Bendtner who was on loan all last season.
Robin van Persie came up with a big goose egg for the Dutch. Tomas Rosicky got throttled by Russia. Wojchiech Szczensy was red carded for a poorly timed tackle. And the young English studs Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlin combined to do nothing short of nothing.
To add insult to injury, the best performances by Gunners were players who no longer where the shirt in Cesc Fabregas, Samir Nasri and Andrei Arshavin (still technically part of the team, but likely to leave this summer).
Looks like everything is returning back to the status quo at the Emirates.
