    Fair play to Monaco they were sensational. As for Arsenal we need a complete revamping of the club.
    I wouldn't say they were sensational, they defended well and exploited your team on the counter attack. For most of the first half Moutinho had little to no support to pull any strings, Berbatov was completely isolated and they got their goal from a long shot. You guys were just terrible with your slow tempoed play, playing narrow and your fullbacks pushing high up did very little of note after the first 20mins.

    They used a RB in midfield, had their best attacking player off the pitch to come on after 70mins and put in a decent performance. In reality you should have won the tie comfortably, it's not an exceptional performance by Monaco, it's a pathetic performance by Arsenal.

    You will probably draw in the second leg as well. Far as I'm concerned Arsenal are out.

    Seriously though sometimes I wonder if we'd end up doing a Leeds or something. God forbid.

    Also, just came to the realisation that Gary Neville can be such a bullying commentator. From minute 1 this guy was negative. Nah scrap that, in fact he's always so depressing not even just on Arsenal.
    Maybe because you lot were playing so terrible, within the first 10mins it was clear your tempo was way too slow, you were struggling to pull Monaco's slightly unsettled defensive setup apart, they then settled into the game, knew your gameplan and scored a long shot, don't think he was being a bullying commentator, he was just saying what every non-Arsenal fan without bias would have said about your performance.

    He wasn't negative in the first 5 minutes, because at that moment you were pulling Monaco apart with quick tempoed play, and when the CBs started playing out the back slow you were shifting it to the wing backs quite far.

    i assume so that we'll have more games and there's a slightly better chance that said extra games will negatively affect our top 4 challenge?

    You might wanna bin Giroud first, in reality a top striker is needed, they won't bottle the plethora of chances Giroud misses, guy gets into so many good positions and his finishing just lets him down time and time again.

    Still loling at how everybody was being so arrogant before the game though, in particular the commentators, credit to Henry for not disrespecting Monaco while Souness and Redknapp were.

    I wish you'd read the first few pages straight after the match. I know we were quite pathetic tonight, worst performance I've seen at home for ages. Monaco deserved their win, they outclassed and outperformed us. They studied us well and performed with that basis, they weren't world class or anything, we were just a disaster.

    All I can say is that I hope there's a miracle for the second leg if not then so be it. Monaco don't concede goals and putting three past them whilst keeping a clean sheet takes something special. I'm not sure we have that at the moment. What will be will be really. Was right not to be confident for this game.

    As said previously, I'm surprisingly not even that fussed this evening aside from a few banterous posts I've made. Only thing pissing me off is Mertasacker.

    So then why are you taking shots at Gary Neville's commentary when he's just saying what all of us think? Not really negative considering Arsenal's record and the pretty ponderous first half you made?

    Gary Neville is quite amazing at reading the game and telling when there's a tactical mishap in the team. By the 20th min he predicted that Arsenal will get suckerpunched with their game. Don't see where he was being negative, or whether he's regularly a negative thinking person like you insinuated.
    All I can say is that I hope there's a miracle for the second leg if not then so be it.

    Yeah it's not going to happen. Maybe you could take it to 3-1 on the night and hope you do something in extra time, but I don't see you winning that tie unless Wilshere/Ramsey are back.

    So was I, hence why I didn't use any cap locks and went misc mode.

    that was amazing - he got there before a rival fan could

    no, it isn't a mistake.
    we may laugh at this performance, but it honestly surprised me.
    you're definitely good value for being in 3rd - you haven't been exceptional this season but considering the circumstances of this campaign, you definitely deserve to be where you are.

    you'll roll everton over; you had an abysmal game but don't underestimate just how poor they are.
    it's a shame they're our local rivals - we only got 2 points from them this season whereas all the over big teams should get 6

    We could seriously crumble now, fall out of the top 4, lose to United. I could get nasty very quickly.
