    Prior to this game were unbeaten in something like ten in twelve.



    Debuchy's been unfortunate - that's just unlucky.

    Also, none of the goals were Bellerin's fault - if you want to blame anyone, blame Mertesacker. He's the one who failed to block Kondogbia's shot, and he failed to track the run of whatshisname, which put them 2-0 up.



    I agree. But which world class CDM could Arsene have bought? I was pretty disappointed when Kondogbia went to Monaco because I watched a few Sevilla matches and he impressed, but everyone else is off-limits/overpriced.



    Rubbish.

    Giroud was unlucky tonight and got it all wrong, but we can play Welbeck, Alexis and Walcott up front if needs be.

    Also, just for a laugh, which striker did you have in mind? Cavani/Benzema, by any chance?



    Crystal ball? Nice.
    lol and all the teams we played were **** bar for city and tottenham. We lost the 2nd didn't we

    Bellerin has been wasteful going forward. Could have done better for that second goal actually and yes Mertesacker needs to be replaced to which is why I said CB?!

    Scneiderlin, Carvalho, Kondogbia, just to name 3 :confused: There are more players available eg no one even heard of Paulista until we were linked with him

    Giroud was unlucky tonight yes. But he's 28 and could easily decline next season. I'm not saying we bench him, I'd rather we use a two striker system with Giroud and a better partner. We played Welbeck Alexis Walcott today and it had no effect. We need a striker.

    No I don't have Cavani/Benzema in mind but Giroud/Cavani or Giroud/Benzema would be a much better strikeforce then Giroud/Welbeck and you can't argue with that. Jackson Martinez was a decent shout, Wilfred Bony, Mandzukic, LOIC REMY even would have been a much better shout than Welbeck.



    There's no crystal ball. Past 10 years should tell you enough. Stop apologising for the same **** performance.

    It's not impossible.

    Chelsea lost 1-3 to Napoli and cameback in home-leg to win 4-1.
    That was with a heavily ageing team with limited talent... mikel, bosingwa, kalou, malouda and a 33 year old past his prime Drogba.

    But you also need experience and when your captain is as bad as Mertesacker is then there's little hope.
    Monaco don't concede goals.

    We are out. Again.

    I feel for Sanchez though the most he probabily had high hopes for us in the UCL when he joined. Seriously hope he doesn't do a Cesc on us though.

    So for the 4th season in a row we need to score 3 away goals to progress. What a ****ing joke.

    And you know the funniest thing? I had that sly hope that we'd do an Anderlecht :rofl:

    Feels like Valdes is being overrated at this point, he may have history but nobody even knows if he's worth a dime atm. Personally I get the feeling he isn't.
    Would still take him any day over the two specimen's of fat we have.

    It has to be shown we have been smashed 6 seasons in a row in the CL can't even get past the QF and people think our club is not a failure. Mourinho was 100% right about Wenger how can this not be failure?
    I don't blame Wenger for today in particular, the players were just almightely crap.
    Awkward when you realise Mourinho was spot on though, in general. People should stop with the wengs in and out business. He goes when he goes, i'm tired.

    They also don't score goals, they scored their first ever 1st half CL goal for 10 years! The fact they could score 3 perfectly highlights Mertesackers performance tonight

    Was I denying that? We were awful, and they were great, it's not a mutually exclusive concept.
    You let them be great. If you took your chances before they scored, then we wouldn't be having this conversation. And of course, when they took the lead, you stupidly overcommitted. Was still over two hours left in the tie when they scored, no reason to get so desperate when attacking.

    Forgot that Jenkinson was only a loan, he's been decent enough whenever i've seen him this season.

    Playing young CB's at RB really doesn't work out well though, just look at us with Smalling/Jones over the past few years.
    Debuchy Jenkinson is a solid pairing to have for RB. Send Bellerin on loan and Chambers is still there just in case.




    Also I've said that we were missing an Arteta type of player for a while now but even Arteta wouldn't have saved todays game

    Monaco of last year would have pummeled us. Monaco of this year will just bore us to death.
    (Original post by ETRC)
    I reckon we should try and completely hammer Monaco at home. Their last 8 games were 1-0 or 0-0 lol
    (Original post by Zürich)
    We'll do LFC 3-0 at the Emirates tbh

    Everton might be a bit dodgy because we have Monaco midweek and we've had CL k/o hangovers before but we should be fine, no excuse not to pump them tbh. And given that they took 5 from us last season, I'd like to sent back to their scouse slums with **** all

    Probably not considering he's already come from Barca...

    This isn't the first time we've played poorly this season. Previously we've done sh**e in some PL games at home (e.g Palace and Hull) where we didn't deserve to win but we've got out of jail. However, this is the first time we've played like that in a big game and fair play to Monaco, they took their chances and caught us out. Had we been caught out earlier by those smaller teams, there'd be a lot more pressure on Wenger right now

    Afraid it seems like it is :laugh:

    Monaco completely outclassed us.
    Nothing I can do about that, and yes they did.

    I agree, we didn't help ourselves, but to claim that they were utterly average is doing a disservice to them. We may have let them play great, but they took that with both hands. We were poor against Palace but we beat them, because they didn't take advantage of us.

    Giroud reverted to the absolute donkey from 12/13. Something like 6 attempts from him, and not a single one on target.

    monaco boss pre-game speach according to ARK:



    Boss:

    "Lads.. ok.. here is the plan - we are going to sit deep, and let them have chances.. if all goes to plan we will catch a lucky deflection for a first goal.."

    Player:

    "Boss, what about how we defend?"

    Boss:

    "Ok, what I want you guys to do is give giroud atleast 2 chances where he only has the keeper to beat.. maybe give a few decent opertunities to walcott and welbeck as well.. just for good measure. You do that, and you will have played a great game"

    Player:

    "So let me get this right boss.. your saying that for us to play well, we need to give decent chances to the oposition, and hope that they dont score?"

    Boss:

    "yes, thats the plan.. pure genius I know.. no need to thank me, now go out there, work your ass off, and hope that mert has a ****ing brain fart so that we can get a second"

    You are so bloody bitter. We lost, they won, get over it. Seriously, you would think I personally came over to your house and murdered your family, dancing over their bodies singing "MONACO ARE AWESOME".

    Worst thing is, he's been in such good form last few games... That's what makes this so baffling

    Did I just see someone suggest we sign Kondogbia Jesus ****ing Christ that sums English football fans up in a nutshell, see one guy play one good game against your team and suddenly he's the best CDM in the world, not saying the guy wasn't good, but I'd be surprised if more than 10% of your average English football faans would have heard of him before tonight.

    Also, just one last dig at Neville, did anyone else hear him constantly saying how perfect the game was at the end for Berbatov, because he's a lazy player who'll create something with a flash of brilliance, interesting how he doesn't feel that way about Ozil isn't it... Feel sorry for Henry that he'll have to share a office with that **** and Jamie Rednapp every game
