I know Auba didn’t train yesterday. Did he pick up an injury or is it illness again? Got to get a positive result tonight.

CuriousGeorgeGraham

Club are saying he had a sinus procedure. Hope he comes back shortly, we need his goals. COYG

Micky Tayrian

I can’t believe he’s dropped Mustafi

Leon

I can’t believe we signed Mustafi

GunneRon

Musti must be the happiest man alive right now. As he’s glad he doesn’t need to cop out of challenges and blame others if he fucks up !

Giovani

Let’s get that 3 points!

I want my boy Ozil to prove the doubters wrong and put in a quality performance away from home.

Lord Bendnter

Doubters will always doubt, unfortunately.
Btw, the Crystal palace game, when we switched up the line up at half time, Ozil was on fire, and you could tell we would certainly win it.
And then, well u know what happened….

Jack4343

That’s about the best team we’ve got. Let’s run the Wolves off their patch. COYG!

Georgeycharles

Not the greatest of impact from the bench though – let’s hope we don’t need it

GraeB

I’m just reviewing comments at half time!

PartyPalour

Love it

Billy Bob

Is it me or are wolves without a couple of key players?

Billy Bob

Actually according to the BBC that haven’t, jiminez and Jota are in the team but not according to blogs? Prefer blogs version of their lineup tbh!!!

Billy Bob

Okay he went with their first names which I didn’t know!!! My bad!!!

Vince

Wolves 0-2 Arsenal. Final Score
Up Arsenal! COYG ?

Richie

I fancy Wolves 0-1 Arsenal.

Kinghenrythe14th

Ahem…

Dial square

Lads I fu*king love our optimism, I think we’ll do ’em 1-3 COYG

GraeB

4-4-1-1 or 3-5-1-1 or 4-2-3-1?

Bernard Guishard

I think Auba is nursing a knock but we should handle the Wolve pack without him..

SB Still

Great to see Sokratis back. Missing Auba. Hope Mkhi rediscovers his form.

COYG, it’s going to be tough but let’s get the 3 points today.

Cdm995

Like it. Emery obviously listens to the arsecast.

nosferatu

Ha, yeah, I was just listening to that part on my way into work and while walking around before class I decided that yeah, that was definitely the right lineup. And here it is! Hope we’re not all wrong.

EZD

Strong line up, but I’m really worried about overplaying Kos (especially since he will have to work harder in a back 4 than a back 5)

Maniac

Say what you want about Emery’s selection last game, he knows how to respond. I really like how there’s no guaranteed places in this squad – too long under Wenger was there a cushy culture of ‘undroppable’ players, irrespective of complacency or failures.

Today’s squad sheet is certainly a statement of intent. Let’s hope the team’s performance matches it. COYG!

Dear Kaiser

A good team selection! Feeling optimistic, albeit mildly! COYG

Billy Bob

Valencia are playing away tonight and have drawn level with athletico Madrid!!

Ealing

AM won that match 3-2

COYG1001

About time our manager learned that we are NOT more assured defensively with 3/5 at the back!

Anonymarse

Depends who is in the 3

COYG1001

Disaster. We can’t defend no matter what! Done!

Hantal

Probably the best available eleven. Good start

GraeB

If this is our best 11……………

Hantal

Yeah speaks volumes

Adrian

Best 11 and worst start

mesutsanchez

That bench looks depressing. The first 11 have to get the job done as I, realistically, can’t see anyone coming off the bench to score a winner..

Leon

Arsenal blowing every chance of champions league football.
As they always do.
They really have no business in the top four
Let the top four go to the teams with the ambition to compete…
Bottling everything….

JeremyDG

2-0 down already. This team are a festering ulcer of weak cunts

Ben

Ha Ha Ha!

Billy Bob

Oh dear a goal down already ? think we might have to focus on the Europa League

Tribe

At this point we really don’t deserve to be at 4th place. Let’s be real.

Leon

Buh Bye Champions League
Time to find something more interesting to do tonight.
This is hilarious.
2-0 Wolves
What a performance !
Arsenal finished !!!!!!!!

GraeB

At least Bein had the grace to switch my stream before the 2nd goal.

Billy Bob

Oh dear we are screwed 2-0 down and now out of our hands!!!

Hantal

Might switch over and watch the Manchester derby instead

Ealing

3-0 nothing more to see

Fts

I quit

Billy Bob

Crumbs this is bad, send the reserve team against Leicester and go all out Europa

Arse-Head

Fuck this, I’m going back to watching cobra kai this is fucking woeful

Deano

Another inept piss poor performance away from home.

GraeB

I hate to think what Santori is going to say about this scoreline and Mustafi absence.

Richie

Europa League next season again.

GraeB

If we’re lucky!

Richie

Lacazette and/or Aubameyang are gone in the summer. Ambitious Champions League clubs will bid for them and they’ll submit transfer requests.

Red-Sky

I don’t see these two in any top team. Auba is past it. Laca is overrated.

Richie

Please come back Wenger and Mislintat…..

Billy Bob

Teams have come back from three goals down but, unfortunately, usually against arsenal!!! I won’t hold my breath for an amazing comeback!!! What a load of BS!!!

Billy Bob

Even cruddy ManUre are putting up a better show!! Hope Man City win and manure v chavski is a bore draw!!!

Red-Sky

3-0 at HT.
And people get mad when you say we have a mediocre squad.
Can’t tackle for shit. No fight. No intensity. No end product.
Thank you Arsene Wenger.

Richie

Are you blaming someone who hasn’t been there for 11 months? How about blaming Emery, the guy who benched Ramsey and Ozil for months on end and persisting with Iwobi and Mkytarian.

Make Arsenal Great Again

Wenger is no longer the manager. How many times did he go away to Wolves and was down 3-0 at half time?

FMT

Well, no Mustafi to blame

Jack gunner

Arsenal will lose . Winning the Europa aint easy.

Kinghenrythe14th

Congrats Santori. You can gloat in peace

Billy Bob

When blogs started the second half blog with “we are off again” was he talking about how tud we are?

Billy Bob

Can’t wait for the twenty minutes of torture to be over lol let’s hope we don’t convened even more to add to the woe!!! Here is hoping City beat ManUre but even that looks doubtful ?

Billy Bob

Just hope Man city can bang in a second goal to finish the game

Billy Bob

Ten minutes to go and thankfully no more goals conceeded ?

Billy Bob

Currently love Man City

Billy Bob

Wow what a pile of steaming shizzle
