    Tony,

    listening to Memphis Depay after he confronted a Lyon ‘supporter’ insulting one of his teammates after Tuesday’s game – incidentally Lyon progressed to playoffs – you can rest assured : some other teams in Europe have abusive ‘supporters’, Lyon being one of them.

    His comments shine a fresh light on what a player feels when he get insulted and booed while on the field.
    Should be written down verbatim and made available in the next issue of the Arsenal newspaper or put on posters all around and inside the Emirates, so all these so called supporters who can read realise what disastrous consequences their behaviour has on the players and the team.

    The Daily Annoyance is being onnoying (again). Their headline has Arsenal to be eliminated while the ManUre boys vying for first place. Arsenal could get first place as well, but no, we have to bash Arsenal.

    And UEFA still have the same “Arsenal reporter”, who I don’t really think supports Arsenal.

    We didn’t get the first foul! Oh, that’s right; PGMO isn’t refereeing this game.

    COYG!

    Midway through the first half, we have 4 attempts with 2 wide and 1 on target. Opposition also has 4 attempts with 1 on target.

    We probably have an insignificant excess of possession and passing accuracy. Fouls are even.

    COYG!

    One minute of time added on before half time, no score.

    Arsenal have 11 attempts with 4 off target and 4 on. Opposition has 6 attemps with 1 off target and 1 on. Everything else is about even.

    COYG!

    Our defence is sad. The simplest of clearances goes to an opponent. We are so fortunate to have not conceded. When are our coaches going to learn that we cannot play out from the back. We must revert to the longer clearance and quicker forward momentum.

    Oops, they scored. Come on Gunners, we need a win out of you this game.

    COYG!

    Our defence should never turn their backs to a shot. It is cowardly and not what good defenders do.

    1-0 to Standard Liege

    Another shambles in defence. Not a single fearless defender in the backline.

    Oops, they scored again. Now we need 3 goals (or more). Martinelli on.

    COYG!

    Luiz looking after his bollocks rather than the goal!!

    Poor game but sufficient to go through. Never seen Arsenal play so badly ever.

    2 – 2 with Laca scoring first assisted by Saka and Saka scoring the second to equalise.

    You obviously wasn’t around in the early 80’s.

    I had to go “deliver” Mom to the senior’s rec centre, and I come back to see a 2-2 final score. Wonderful, they got a point. Not quite what was hoped, but it is better than a loss.

    Lacazette(79m) from Saka.

    Saka(81m) from Martinelli.

    Wonderful!

    And Frankfurt lost, so we top the group.

    What we need now, is for ManU to lose.

    Nitram – I was working short stints in Moscow/ Greece /Canada /Middle East and missed a lot of games as they were not televised. Home games had NF recruiting so gave them a miss.

    Well here is the Guardian headline yesterday after Spurs were dispatched with 10 goals in 2 games against them by Bayern : Spurs brushed aside as Coutinho seals win.

    And here is the one tonight after Arsenal tied a game and got 1st place in their groupe : Gunner hit back to top group after flirting with disaster.

    So a real disaster for Spurs is ‘brushed aside’ and a tie with 1st place ‘flirting with disaster’.

    And for both Spurs and Arsenal, the talk is about fringe player, not young players, which is definitely not the same thing…

    That about just says it all about the way the press mis-portray football.

    You would never think we topped the group judging from the first five items from the NewsNow site….

    It’s beyond a joke and there we have one of our own leading the assault.

    But lets not forget Keown just recently was claiming that Denis Bergkamp actually wasn’t all that after all.

    Honestly I think the mans lost the plot.
