0-2 Great goal on the half time whistle. Wasn't expecting this
See, we're pretty good when we want to be
Typical innit. Sounds like a good win in fairness. You'll probably lose at home now
We'll win the europa league and arsene will get his contract extended
Arsenal in 6th place in the league and tonight it's A C Milan 0 - Arsenal 2
Yeah, Wenger out. He's clearly totally useless.
Silverware, a cup final, and 5th or 6th place; not too shabby.
Silverware is still a bit distant. There are still a lot of good teams left in the Europa cup & need to get through the second leg first.
I don't think you'll have any problem with the second leg but you are right in that there are some very difficult teams especially Athletico . Dortmund were surpringly beaten at home .
Solid 3-0 today against Watford. Watford came out fighting in the second half but a goal on the counter and immediately after Cech saving a penalty knocked the stuffing out of them
So a thumping 5-1 aggregate win over AC Milan.
Yeh but should have kept a clean sheet
Pretty much every league club would love their shit seasons to be as good as ours
Something really special from Wellbeck tonight
Apart from the top 4 teams....that's where we should be...don't lower your expectations.
As a football fan surely you should want your team to win every game. I remember hearing Danny Baker says once that true football fans not only want to see their team win every game but they also want to see every other team lose. Obviously there's a dodgy logic there but I get what he means.
perhaps you haven't followed e.g. spurs' shit seasons. or liverpool's. or chelsea's. or indeed manchester united who have of course been relegated in living memory, not to mention finishing seventh the other year. or man city's. you don't need to be a city fan to recall that day in the 1990s when they were relegated. arsenal haven't finished below 6th in the past 20 years, and i don't believe you can say that of any other team in the premiership.
expectation is tempered by experience so while i may want arsenal to win every game, i know that the wrexhams of this world, if not the man citys or man utds, pop up more frequently than i might desire.
if you draw Sporting Lisbon you could nip over for the game and see Stanley?
yeh. it's a thought.
Just be careful where you leave your ipad.
CSKA Moscow then?
Should go well on and off the pitch
Not the best draw. See if it actually goes ahead.
Brilliant!! We'll have NATO on our side....that should help fill up the Emirates.
Stadium looks very empty and sounds very quiet today
Is this the same Arsenal who haven't been relegated from the top flight since their elevation in 1917, longer than any other club, have been in Europe for more than 20 consecutive seasons and haven't finished outside the top 6 since George Graham's final season?
That's the one
So when we have a shit season we're in a position almost all other clubs envy.
In football these days it seems a manager/is only as good as their last game.
