The first 20 minutes or so were awful and then Arsenal were easily the better side.

Dumb.

I swear the **** that media complains about. I thought after we gave up the goal, we played really well yesterday and had a professional performance. ESPNs headline from one of the pundits:

"Arsenal's performance didn't fill me with joy"

**** man we've gotten stomped the last three matches, not losing fills me with joy.
I saw that. I had to stop watching before I even got to that line.

Its an incredibly silly take for this point in the season and the tournament.

Quotes from an interview with Lee Dixon...

Quote:

"One of the most disappointing things about Arsenal over the past few months is that, defensively, they are not getting any better.

"They are still making the same awful mistakes and [Unai] Emery is still chopping and changing from a three to a four at the back, which can't be helping matters. He is obviously not happy with what he is seeing and trying to juggle the players to find the right defensive combination.
"I think there will be some major movement in that area in the summer because he realizes it is one of the major issues for this team, and will know by now which players are not good enough.

"He changes the formation all the time because he is trying to find the magic mix with what he has got at the club, when maybe he does not have the right personnel for the team to have the correct mentality when they don't have the ball."

Lol Spurs go down at Bournemouth with 2 red cards.

Frustrating to think Arsenal could still be in control of their own fate with any kind of decent form down the stretch.

Rumor that Barca want to go after Lacazette if the don't get Griezmann. Anything less than 100m and they can **** right off

Read that yesterday. Heard the proposed deal was 60-70m or a swap involving Umtiti or Gomes.

That really isn't a bad deal right there. If this team had a defense you'd be scary as hell to play.

Man I hope you guys qualify for CL.

Brighton playing with confidence. Not exactly a guaranteed 3 points.

I'd really rather not give up Laca but I question if we will truly be able to get a quality defender at a discount. If we swapped for Umtiti we would have the quality CB we need (rotation of Sokratis, Umtiti, Kos, Holding & Mov) for a 4 man back line and then switch to Emery's preferred 4-2-3-1/4-3-3 formation with PAE as the lone ST. I think it will be easier to find a young backup target forward that can push PAE at a cheapish price then it will be to find a starting quality CB for a similar price tag.

Crappy finish today and the recent form in the Premier League. One win in last six matches. WTH Arsenal?!?!?

What will be insufferably ironic...Arsenal make it to the Europa final, and lose to the fightin' Hazard's, who have already qualified for the CL.

So basically 2 months of premier league matches against mid-table teams or worse and we've only manged to win 1 ****ing game with a luck goal against 10 man Watford who still dominated us. Pretty sure most top managers get fired for that ***** Its an absolute embarrassment and Emery better be on a short ****ing chain. I don't care if he doesn't have his exact players because he should still be able to win those matches with what he does have.

Only chance at CL is to...

1. win EL
2. Spurs to lose to Everton and us to beat Burnley and the GD between those 2 games is +9 in our favor (ie our + GD plus Spurs - GD must be greater than 8.

At this point it is EL or bust. Only advantage is we have been playing well in EL. Sucks because if we took care of business in the last 6 or so EPL games we would be comfortably in 3rd.

Well we've scored 5 goals in our last 6 matches in the league so spurs will have to do us the favor of losing by 7+.

4 points out of 18. Players making incredibly stupid decisions all around. We got stone-walled by Brighton at home. It took an incredible save from Leno to save us a point while we just wasted chances at the other end.

Mother ****er. What a **** show.

Unai Emery can coach in a tournament.

Dude won't last too long at Arsenal, though, if he can't learn to coach in a league.

It was announced during the lap of honor that Welbeck is officially leaving at the end of the season as well. Rambo was in tears when they announced him leaving.

Fittingly booed off the pitch after that disaster. Sorry Ramsey and Cech had to watch that.

Rumors popping up that we have agreed a 5yr deal with Edu to be our Technical Director

Just coming to post this. Hopefully he can hit the ground running since he has almost no time to prepare for the summer transfer window.

Have a feeling we are fixing to see an influx of young inexpensive Brazilians. Outside of Martinelli (whom I've heard Edu is a fan of) we have already been linked with 2-3 others in the last several months.

If they can be effective wingers, so be it.

Young Brazilians sounds like a great way to plug a leaky defense.

Huge match. We've definitely played much better in the EL than we have the league. This competition is all that matters right now. Hopefully we can knick an early goal to cancel out their away goal and build from there. Valencia is very good at home so we have to be very focused at the back and can't afford any **** ups like we've had recently.

We desperately need that CL money to help with bringing in more players.
