Mr. White

Wish Gabriel started cos we’d be keeping a very high line I reckon but anyway all day I’ve had a feeling we’ll win this so let’s do it!

Man Manny

The die is cast…no retreat, no surrender.


I pity our self with per in the lineup but is a sure win and that’s certain. #coyg


Damn that bayern line up looks good….. should be a great game!! COYG!!


please I need this three points more than anything else today please win it for us with clean sheet. win is the most important


This is a huge test for us and will tell us a lot about ourselves. Have we learned anything from previous big nights in Europe? Very positive team selection. Time to stand up.

Fast start like the United game would be nice. About time we saw Cech in the champions league!


Way to leave Gabriel at home and make an excuse he is ill just in case we lose… Smart Arsene.


the truth might hurt if you had a clue what the truth actually is.


Bench definetly better than theirs.

Gabriel to be missed, Mert to be targeted?



Joel Campbell’s replacement should have an useful attacking option on the bench.



Let’s keep all 11 players on the pitch tonight boys! COYG!

Have to watch out for lewandowski,he’s an elbowy wind up merchant when things don’t go his way


Bayern teams looks good, should be a great game! Benzema coming on at HT should help us as well. COYG!!!


What’s the official line on Ospina? Has he been disappeared?


Shoulder injury

Dutch Gooner

Makes sense to go with this lineup but I would’ve liked to see ox and giroud come in for Ozil and Walcott. I feel pep is gonna target Ozil just like klopp did with Dortmund and we could use giroud as an outlet and defending corners and free kicks. Could use the strength and directness of ox too.


Honestly I expect us to start exactly the way we started against man utd, get at their faces and dont let them pass the ball for the opening 20mins, press them high up the pitch and see what we might get, afterall.. We have nothing to lose since we lost our first two games already to lower teams. COYG!


Lewandowski is on form but I watched him against Ireland and if John O’Shea can keep a lid on him for most of the game so can Mert/Kos


All(apart from our two cb’s) out attack from the very first minute.. Bayern are very good but last two seasons before ozil missed that penalty we saw they crumble under high pressing so why not try it again? We lost to dinamo and olympiacos losing to bayern is no disgrace so I suggest we have nothing to lose!


Where can I watch the game online on mobile phone?


Here we go. We can make our mark in the next two games against Bayern. A win and at least a draw will be a powerful message to our critics that we are for real. Step up guys and show them. COYG!!!

A Gooner

Playing well. Come on arsenal!


Yeah Giroud! Now stay frosty everyone, concentrate on defense.


Ahhahahaaa best game ever. Fuck Pep the barcacunt, can’t stand him and his boring football.


Ozil haters… now shut the fuck up for good.


What a fuckin run by Hector!!!!


Incredible how Neuer was even able to touch that ball. Also, YYYYYEEEEEEEEAAAAAAHHHH!


Hahahahahahahahaha have that Pep! Yes, what a run by Bellerin!


Did that really happened?


There you go. That’s one. Now we could use a draw in Bayern and then take care of business with Dynamo and Olympiacos.


We won!!!!!!!!!!! Yeaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!


Oh boy! What a crazy night! Need some beer and a smoke.. COYG!!!!!


“The team with the most possession will win.” – Dork Guardiola yesterday. Arsenal 27%, Bayern 73%. Suck it Pep, suck it.


The man who benched half a billion euros worth of world class players at Barcelona isn’t someone I’d listen to. No for anything.

Tenzo (Theo's secret lover)

Trepidation, to anxiety, to joy, to intensity of celebration, to fucking tears of joy. The tears flow as I type this. Oh to be a fucking Gooner. COYG.


Like the idea we can play that type of game when we have to. Shows we can win either with straight attacking, or play deep and counter. With all their possession we still had more good chances than they did, even when it was 0-0. Let’s not forget Cech’s contribution. He quietly came up with some critical saves.


Wow! So where does that rank among the great team performances of Arsenal in the past decade? Nobody was below 8.5 today and as for Wengers tactics and organisation, that’s why he’s le Prof.


yes we finally did it with clean sheet remaining their home, how I wish God will be on our side at their home to make it six points in four match just like them too
