Fuck him and his daddy tonite lads.

Better manager than that greaseball Emery.
Bruce Rioch was a better manager than Emery – at least he brought Bergkamp to Arsenal.
Emery has no tactical skill whatsoever – tinkering with formations and even now, with the worse defence in the premiership top ten he STILL does nothing to address the issues in defence – looking to bring fucking midfielders in…
And now its 3-1
I just want Emery gone – I am tired of the incompetence of this man. He is totally out of his depth at this club.
What formation next ?
8-1-1?
6-3-1?
1-6-3?
Jesus christ.

Nice strong lineup. Hope Iwobi gives AMN some support. they’ll be targeting him.

Got a night of beers riding on this result. COYG!!!

So looks like a 4-2-2-2 or 4-2-3-1 with Auba on the right then?

Iwobi as a defending mid? He’s an attacking player. Typically employed by Emery on the left of a front 3 or in a 4-2-3-1.

Hey, you might be right, but that would be a bit unusual to use him in a midfield three. You never know what you’re going to get with Emery ball though!

Looks like a better lineup than theirs. Hopefully the game can be wrapped up before Rashford and Martial can get on to change the result. Only downside being Lichtsteiner on the bench.

I feel blessed to support such a truly great team with such World class talent as Iwobi & Ramsey that we can leave Mesut Ozil on the bench.

2-0 down in the first half already.

Emery put Ozil on please

at HT 2-1, i’d like to say 4-2-3-1 is a terrible formation, too many attacking players, not enough cover in front of defense.
we should stick with 3 defensive midfielders every game.

Our luck with defense injury this season…

Why oh why can’t we just beat Man United?? Even at their worst we couldn’t do it!
To see Sanchez score 😡😡😡 I’d have booed him if I was there… just like RVP all over again

Because we are wank defensively.
Just plain wank….

Ozil should have started, if he won’t utilize our most talented player in an effing FA cup game after a month out of action, he does not know how to manage club’s resources properly.

I still like Emery and it’s much too early to be negative, but this pisses me off. He should be inclusive and find a way to solve this, we cannot play this game, it costs too much in every way.

You will be saying the same thing this time next year.
Look at what Solskjaer has done at United – playing exciting football.
And look at Emery…
And Arsenal…
Not much to look forward to…

Well done to United.
Arsenal outplayed and out thought and out fought.
Just slipping further and further away.
I expect Arsenal to finish sixth or seventh and United to pip Chelsea for fourth.
No doubt Emery will be here next season as clueless and useless as he has been all this season.
Its one thing going on a run beating the euro trash in the europa league and teams like Cardiff, Huddersfield and Fulham but when the pressure is on like in tonights game Arsenal will wilt under pressure and concede stupid goals as they have done so all season.
Arsenal have no bollocks…
All the full time whistle goes.
And Arsenal go down with a whimper.
Spineless and over paid.
Emery needs to wash his hair more often – fucking greaseball…
