    Scenes when Bayern beat you so hard, half of your players retire out of shame.

    Whose fault is that though and how can you use that as an excuse?
    It's Wenger's choice to be complacent and cocky by playing a sub-par team. It's not like you were against a League 2 team.

    Personally i feel like with your great PL form and you needing to win in the CL, one less distraction isn't the worst thing in the world. However the way you went out was pretty embarrassing.
    You were expressing surprise at the fact that the same team could trash Man Utd and beat Bayern, and then lose to Sheffield Wednesday, and I was pointing out that it was not the same team.

    Anyway, it's nobody's "fault" nor an excuse. Wenger played his reserves and youth, just like he always does in this cup (so not out of complacency or cockiness), and they failed to step up. No excuses necessary really. It's not exactly a big deal.

    I meant the same club, but fair enough.
    In any case, you did play Cech, Mertesacker, Walcott, Giroud, AOC and Flamini who are all first team (bar the last two who still get a solid amount of minutes) so it's not like you didn't have enough quality in your side to beat a mid-tabled Championship club.

    It is complacency though - although Chelsea were against better opposition, they did field a strong side.
    Like i said, the manager chooses the team and he is therefore responsible for any losses. Like it or not, the League Cup is still silverware. You may have had a good PL start but by Christmas you could be out of both domestic cups and the CL.

    But yeah, that wouldn't be a big deal right? As long as you get 4th it's okay.

    ****ing hell you know you're #obsessed when you're ****ging another team off at 3am on a student forum.

    Love everyone thinking Bayern will **** us up, it'll make it all the more enjoyable when we banter them out with a cheeky 1-0 win. Allianz is our 3rd home after all, not really fair we get effectively 2 home games against them....

    He started 13 of Barnsley's 18 games and their fans seem disappointed that he's come back.

    So doubt he's been "binned".

    Maybe Wenger recalled him to cover our annual injury crisis.

    Something strange then since he was starting games and performing okay. Maybe he pissed off somebody important.
