I was hoping Mkhi would start in place of Welbeck. Prefer him coming off the bench to chase a goal if we need one. This team always puts in a performance when it’s back is against the wall. COYG


Yes if he was 100% fit, which is not and had a knock to the same knee vs utd. We need 100% match fit players to start today and welbz is in great form. If we need miki he will come from the bench to help us.

Xhaka better score a 35 yard screamer to seal the tie in the 90th and stick the disgusting chants down the throat of those wankers. #COYG 2-2 and lets go to lyon!


No shit.hate those fans who sung such shit_song.Nice of u being gentle to arsenal players tas .

Tas Gunner

I’m always gentle.the masochist in me sometimes likes to fish out the trolls.

Wenger is my grand dad

Come on Arsenal !!!!!!!


not surprised but really think we could have used Mhik on the wing and slotted Ozil in to Jack’s spot.


I’m feeling a 2-1 win


Time for the players to pay back the unwavering faith of their manager. I have a feeling Wilshere is going to stamp his name on this one.

Forest gooner

If not, stamp costa

Jean Ralphio

I hope the referee has a good game. Also, I hope ospina can catch.

Kwame Ampadu Down

I hope the ref has a shit game & screws Atletico ?

Laughing Stock

That massive Hyena looking cunt Costa


In my opinion, that first leg was our most important match of the season, and we bottled it badly. It’ll take a miracle. Prove me wrong, lads…..pretty please

Forest gooner

Can we not talk about what happened?
This game is nevee gonna happen again…
Scream your voice out and support the team for 90 mins…


I’m sorry. I got carried away there…

Dirty Diego and the Greaseman.
Sounds like a 1970’s Hollywood comedy.

One last time, we know the rest of the season doesn’t matter. All or nothing.
For Arsene, I’d like one more Henry at the Bernabeu or a Lehmann save in the final minute at Villarreal or a Welbeck header against Leicester. We’ve not had one this season, make me book flights to Lyon tonight despite the fact I’ve no money and my girlfriend will most likely kill me. Make us happy again lads


great to see jack, and ramsey start

Forest gooner

Come on do it fuckn one last time
Ya gunners ya

Forest gooner

This could possibly be the last significant match under wenger…
Probably this is the last time I am watching a football match…
I am going to scream for 90 mins…who is with me… Get fired up you numb soul…


Bit of luck would be nice


It somehow feels as if every other game during Arsene’s reign has brought us to this point… which literally it has I suppose, but you know what I mean.


This is it. Here we are after all these years.


Cuntster got us again


Please please pleaseee…we need to win this ****** game. COYG


We haven’t done bad to be fair


Where was Bellerin? Toothless going forward. Everything funneled through the middle. When we break, there is no pace until the fullback commits forward (Hence Bellerin and Costa)…which means our players pass it back allowing Atheltico to get back into shape. We are lacking a winger who can break with pace or beat one or two of their players and open space up. Rather we had gone for Mahrez then Mhkitaryan. (That said Mhkitaryan needs to come on) There is also no one to release to up top. World class Lacazette can’t hold the ball, Danny has two left feet. We… Read more »


I am pretty gutted right now, but i wont let that hold me back from being optimistic. Lets go Goonas!


There’s no one for us to slap on up top to make a difference.

Aside from Iwobi (not a striker), there’s only young Nketiah.

Again atest to Sanheli/Mslintat going for Aubameyang a cup tied player and fixing something that was not broken.

We need a bit of speed transitioning from defense when we turn over the ball. Far too ponderous. Lacking wide quick players.

Athletico know we need to commit the fullbacks forward. Everytime we do that, we leave space behind.


I just have to console myself with the fact that wenger is leaving.

This shite has gone on for long enough


Blogs: Why are trolls like jimmythegoat on the live chat not being banned?





Total shit

Ashburton Grove

Feck sake. So much for dying on our shields. But we lost this tie last week, that was a great opportunity and we ballsed it up as usual. Toothless going forward and an absolute shambles at the back.
