    Shell shocked you managed to scrape through a weak group?

    ffs. Is there a medical term for when Arsenal fans get gassed over a Champions League win?

    I think the thing you've got to be most pleased about is the quality you showed tonight with your backs against the wall. With such key performers injured, you could have easily buckled under the pressure but Giroud was excellent, helped by some inventive running and probing by the likes of Campbell and Ozil.

    Funny because you think of all the injuries but really we only lacked 2 star players in Coquelin and Sanchez. I'd much rather Ramsey stay at CM and Cazorla to be a rotation option.

    Joel's also been doing a great job and has already proven why there is simply no room for Ox at Arsenal.

    It definitely wasn't in terms of finishing in the top 2 (so remove Bayern and Wolfsburg from the debate) and we would've got through with correct refereeing decisions in the first game

    One of those games where you need the whole team to put a shift in, and then 3 or 4 extras who give a little bit extra aswell. Giroud, Campbell, Ramsey, Koscielny all stand out for me tonight but everyone played very, very well.

    Yeah, Ramsey was boundless in his energy. He is definitely better in a central role.

    Shout out to Monreal, too. Quietly astute tonight and really offered you something.

    Ramsey rotating with Cazorla is what Ive wanted all along. I think that they can both offer so much in that deep central role depending on the opponents. Also Casorla drops in and out of form too much so needs the competition whilst the right wing needs to be left to a true winger.

    Cazorla is pretty crucial to Ozil's brilliance, though. He regularly provides the assist for Ozil to assist. No two players have shared more passes with each other this season, after all.

    Said we would get through, never in doubt although I'm sure a list of my tongue on cheek comments will now be quoted as though they me being serious.

    Not sure why everyone is ridiculously gassed, we'll get ****ed by any team we face in the round of 16 bar Zenit... Guess an way day in Madrid is closer than Krasnodar...

    Ozil didn't exactly need Cazorla today though, did he? They don't need to share passes together, Ozil is more than sufficient to play without Cazorla

    City have a really good chance of making the QFs, actually.

    They can face PSG, PSV, Benfica, Roma, Dynamo Kyiv or Gent. They have a decent chance of beating all those sides, though the former will obviously be the toughest.
