    Costa and Thiago are such a good duo.

    just lol at people calling last night a tactical master class by Wenger tho

    we put out our standard starting 11. We didnt let Bayern have possession, Bayern took possession, and played their game and we were forced to hit them on the break for our only chances. I doubt it was a conscious decision to let them have 70% possession, and to voluntarily give a Pep side 70% possession is bordering on gross negligence as a manager.

    I think if you play that match 10 times, Bayern win 7 times, and it was just one of those 3 times they dont.

    It was no more of a tactical masterclass than me playing 5 centrebacks, 4 fullbacks and hitting lobbed through balls to Ronaldo on FIFA.

    also shout out to bellerin, but questions raised on him being a RB. Costa skinned him alive throughout the game, and it was a very high risk move to attempt that 93 minute interception. Had he not won the ball, Costa had the whole right side of the pitch to himself, and people would be calling for his head for lunging out of his position, and showing no positional sense, and saying how naive he is.


    1. swirlysimultaneously think that Bellerin is one of the best RB's in the league and that Bellerin is not a RB at all

      srs




    anyway moving forward, dont we have a 100% record in the Allianz, over Pep's years?

    Nah we drew there last season. The time before weren't Pep.

    Last night has probably worsened our chances of getting anything from the Allianz.

    Want us to go all out tbh, still don't see a point in qualifying. I want to see if this team has the mentality to repeat what they did at the Emirates.

    If he misses that, Coquelin and Cazorla dont have the pace to recover, and it puts the LW 1v1 against the ever so pacy Mertesacker.

    the good thing is the timing.

    if we cant salvage something there, then we can tactically throw the games against Zagreb and Olympiacos later to avoid the Europa. Give some games to Jeff and Iwobi.

    If we can salvage something from there, we can probably go through to RO16. Bayern will win their last two games imo.

    If we get a point however, I think we should give the young guns a chance.

    You guys just beat Bayern Munich and it wasn't luck.

    The fact that some of your fans are still responding negatively in an attempt for attention truly baffles me...

    I don't hate your club; I have a good level of respect for it but can you just imagine what the Arsenal fans would be like it if they won the league?

    That's not even bias either. As much as I love Liverpool and want us to succeed with all my heart, I know that if/when we finally do win the Premier League, many of our fans will be insufferable
    Obviously that would be the case for fans of any team that hasn't won the premier league for a long time, or has never won it.

    That's good though. I'd rather somebody different got to win it for a change.

    He was never going to miss it though. He got there a yard or 2 before the bayern player. It wasn't even 50:50

    i thought he picked it from the bayern player's feet?

    oh but still, a team needs to take risks. but the risks need to be calculated. defending a 1 - 0 lead against a much better team at 90 mins, I dont think a top RB, capable of taking that risk, would have took it.

    of course, if he did get there a yard or two before, at that pace, there is a chance that he could have missed the ball completely or it fumbled through him onto the bayern player. all players can make simple mistakes like that, even Neuer as you can tell by Giroud's goal.

    Dont get me wrong, credit to Bellerin; I just think people are being very fair-weather, and not analysing the situation completely.

    Credit where it's due when a 20 year old RB sets up a goal against the strongest side in Europe atm though. Bellerin is undeniably one of the hottest prospects in the league right now.

    Swirly's 100% correct, if bellerin goes for it and misses or didn't take it cleanly and the lb takes it, there's a clear 2 v 1 on Mert. The still image says it all. If he ****ed it and they countered and scored and we drew and were all but out, people would be saying he played dreadful and that we have no discipline and same old same old etc.
    Instead we applaud him for getting the assist, but imo swirly is right, it was the wrong decision at 1-0 with a minute to go against the best team in the world right now to go into what WAS an unnecessary 50/50 with no cover. Complete unnecessary but fortune favours the brave (or tactically naïve perhaps) and we get the second and the win.
    It doesn't change the fact we were absolutely brilliant yesterday and would generally love an explanation from The Shed End (who obviously is so #obsessed with us he watched our game rather than his own team play #salty) in what way he thinks our win was lucky
