    Given Emery's risk aversion Bielik is probably the second coming of Maldini

    I honestly believe Nketiah can be a real asset away from home. More so than Lacazette

    Decent performance. Not really worth reading anything into given the strength of both teams and how much our squad could change between now and the start of the league.

    Nketiah and John Jules are going to be bullies to defenders.
    Even Saka - man, no one will out muscle that boy.

    Break up the partnership love of Laca and PEA.

    Time for fresh blood. Laca better lose some weight as he looked slow as fook.
    Nketiah must play.

    Exactly why I hate this first team and youth separation. 10 minutes to go and Bayern can't get out of their half because we have pace and power in all forward positions. No number 10s just walking around hoping they have the correct situation to flourish in. You have players like Nelson, Saka, John Jules and Eddie who can get the ball and start running at players. Then you see Xhaka pick up the ball from 40 yards and instead of driving forward he just shoots because that is his limitation.

    Nelson actually tracked back to protect AMN. The set up needs to be two wide players and a 3 man midfield with 1 forward. Stop shoe horning players in just to make them happy.

    I dont have too many problems with Emery to be honest. Think he does a lot of good stuff here, but he sucks exactly at the only thing I did not like with Wenger at the end. His line-ups.

    Emery with a good mix of youngsters in the team. Like 2-3 each game. Would be perfect

    Eddie is looking to prove people wrong. Love it.

    Nah. Lots of us have said this. We just need the defense sorted. I'm not that worried about the attack with this phenoms coming through.

    Lovely passage of play at the end. These youths are so much more creative and exciting to watch.

    I don't like it. Emery is a doofus.
    I want these players in the Premier League. Europa League they would play until we get to the QF and are **** in the league. Then, Emery would drop our younsters and play the turd that screwed up league table.

    The young Guns have done it.Last 10 mins of the game we totally owned Bayern.Nketiah belongs to the big stage not just the goal but the way he made Sule eat dust and that shoulder barge to Kimmich.He is going to be a star and that Kid john Jules my god he was everywhere an a great assist.Nelson didnt do much but that's ok he it's his first sub appearance.Now for the negative saw the last 30 mins only but Gnabry and coman totally ruined our defence to shred.I dont want to see that nounce mustafi in my arsenal..Bastard just let Lewandowski free and then like a fcking **** has his arm raised for offside after he scored.Auba and nelson missed a sitter.Özil set piece deliver was spot on but not much other then that.Finally we beat bayern even if it's a friendly.

    I love that Nketiah, JJ, Saka and the likes seem to have come to a point where they feel proud to play for the badge. Guess we wont loose those gems at least. They got that career start highlights with us now.

    Hopefully more to be promoted over the next seasons.

    Completely outmuscled their strongest centre half. He is looking hungry and deserves his chance.

    Second half

    Kola made a brilliant pass to put it on a silver platter for PEA who should of buried it.

    PEA then shortly made a good pass to set up Nelson who should of scored.

    Shortly after that Mustafi left Lewandowski open for a free header that he equalised from.

    Coman gave AMN and Mustafi a tough time in second half. The lack of positional awareness displayed by these two was concerning.

    Xhaka looked composed on the ball.

    When Nketiah came on he looked up for the game, looked physically much stronger than I've seen him previously and got his goal from a good bit of link up play from youths.

    Kola made another brilliant in the last few reamining minutes to set Jules who should of scored.

    Yeah tbh I'm a bit cranky as I didn't sleep too well and I've got work soon.

    I just hoped to see more adventurous line ups especially in pre-season and I think I blew one when I saw Mkhitaryan on the wing.

    Our starting line up lacks balance, honestly Emery needs to bite it and play either Auba or Laca through the middle and proper wingers, you can see the difference when there are two actual wingers on the pitch.
