    I'm not angry, I'm disgusted. Also, I'm just genuinely baffled about how you can have pride in the performance and the boys. Ultimately they failed, will go down as another nearly moment, glorious failure and the rest of it. Tonight's showing was garbage, 0-2 wasn't enough, they knew what was required yet still couldn't do what was necessary. Not good enough.

    Haven't mentioned Wenger at any stage but nevermind
    You're missing the point, the tie was lost in the first half. Better to see what we've just witnessed than an effortless and dross performance. I never expected anything out of the game so I'm not that disappointed. I showed my disgust after the first leg so no point raging now. There's no point repeating what seems to be like our anthem after every loss, it won't change things. Roll on with the FA cup and a top four finish is all I ask now.

    I made my side up ages ago, what you on about?
    The last few pages you have flip-flopped!

    But back to your original point, the squad isn't good enough to fight for the CL, but certainly is good enough to get past that Monaco team over two legs. But as usual, we ****ed it up.

    I guess my vocab has been slipping (MU fan btw)
    Agree, it was down to you missing your chances, and Monaco taking them in the first leg. Giroud should have had the tie done and dusted in the first leg tbh.

    tbf there's no point getting angry now. At the weekend you probably would have been happy with 3rd/2nd and the FA cup seeing as you thought we had no chance, but now that we almost did it, youre thinking differently

    Top 4 is not good enough this season , we must finish second and be right up in Chelsea's faces, hit the ground running next season. Also, the cup is a must.

    We have to do this and make the right signings. The winning mentality is an absolute must. It is a gradual thing.

    So? It took one game to get Theo out for nearly a bloody year. One game for Debuchy to become non existent. It makes a difference.

    Good post, thank you.

    I agree with him, but, I have not really complained about the result personally, knew we did not deserve to go through based on the first leg.

    I am more for defending our players and club. We get the most stick in the league and it is unjustified. We are the stress ball that people use when they feel inadequacies with their own clubs. Not a victim "mentality", more a sad reality.

    Can we please not refer to "just top 4" please? I view finishing as close to Chelsea as possible as vital for the mentality of the team and setting a fighting spirit for next season. And a cup win against hopefully Liverpool. We should hope Liverpool get in the final so that we have the chance to beat them and gain more winning experience in the big games.

    Tbh everytime we have a bad result it is the same idiotic Arsenal fans who say "yeahhh Wenger out , woo". If you are going to complain everytime we lose then do not feel entitled to celebrating with us when we win.

    Now that we are 1 point behind man city, 2nd is definitely the aim despite their being no difference between 2nd and 3rd. We haven't finished 2nd since 2005!

    I'm really not. The first was lost because Giroud couldn't finish his dinner and our naivety once again. How many times have we been caught out because we've gone hell for leather in the dying moments of a game, only to get caught out on the break? Too many to count. Something is systemically wrong at the club with this weak arse mentality and stupidity when it comes to the big moments and needs to be addressed.

    You seem to be confusing my passion with anger. I'm not angry, I'm disappointed. On top of that, the attitude of "well we played well, we nearly did it, I'm proud of the boys" Is entirely what is wrong with the club. Being Nearly FC won't win us nothing. I can't be happy with that performance even if it was a win because ultimately we are out, and at the hands of a team we really should have been beating. The same thing keeps on being repeated because it keeps on happening.

    But not today. Some of the issues the team have are due to Wenger, and because I'm not blinded by what he did 10 years ago, I am able to acknowledge them, not my fault I'm in 2015 and not 2005.

    Exactly this. We got a gift of a draw and unfortunately didn't grasp the opportunity. Monaco have done very well and they dererved to go through, don't know why it's so bad that I merely just appreciate the work the club has put in tonight trying to rectify the first mistake. Tonight was all about redemption, and although it wasn't done through qualification, you can't be angry with the performance. But anyway, what do I know.

    Nah it's cool, let Arsenal continue to be the league's scapegoat.
