Technically I didn't say we'd win on the night, I said we'd go through. Which happened.
How is it racist or bigoted to hate someones face / hair / ability to play football?
We were ****ing awful, we must stop thinking all we have to do is turn up against smaller teams. Ostersunds played with no fear and we played like strangers or thought it was a training session FFS.
When Ostersunds scored 2 quick goals the way they did, I didnt know whether to laugh or cry.
Milan will destroy us next round.
The poll says different
I meant on aggregate
That hole you're digging is getting awful deep, my friend
Smh, why bother with sheep-like moronic & ignorant posts? Was perez given a fair shot at either wing or striker? Did campbell produce AT LEAST better than iwobi or welbeck has? Didn't gnabry shows signs of working well with his fellow german guru from the right wing?
Also, why do morons quote perez's & Campbell's respective goal return this season as the definitive guide to their effectiveness, regardless of where theyre playing positionally??
You're not totally wrong as history shows Wenger picks the so called better players almost regardless of form. Then you have the case of Bellerin who through sheer effort helped end Debuchy's career here. I remember a partly injured Cesc on the bench one Christmas. He came off and scored and limped off after 20 minutes. The players even in a cameo appearance have to give the manager a dilemma and many simply haven't. (Nelson excluded).
I was speaking in more general terms. I don't have a problem with the idea of squad rotation, resting starters or letting younger players play. The underlying problem is that given how poorly we are managed and prepared shines through even more with anything but our first team. Even our first team is uneven and disorganised, but all that is a discussion for another thread. Which is where I will head now...
Fully expect Ivan to drop a line down to John Cross with a "Arsenal looking into Ancelotti line" before full time.
