Arsenal fans slate Rob Holding after shocking FA Cup defeat

Arsenal’s defence of the FA Cup has ended in shocking fashion after being defeated 4-2 by Championship outfit Nottingham Forest at the City Ground on Sunday.

The holders were soundly beaten in one of the weekend’s big cup upsets, leaving fans again fuming at Arsene Wenger and his under performing side.

It’s the first time since the Frenchman became manager of the Gunners that they have gone out at the third round stage, another sign that perhaps the best years of his reign are far behind him.

With the English Premier League title looking beyond them, it leaves the EFL Cup and UEFA Europa League as the only opportunities for silverware this season.

Fans were disappointed with the performance and had sharp criticism for their defence, with centre-backs Rob Holding and Per Mertesacker failing to cope with the lower league side across the 90 minutes.

Holding hasn’t had many Premier League opportunities so far this season and based on this performance, it seems likely his appearances will be limited to secondary competitions going forward.

Supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his performance…
