He’s got no hair but we don’t care...

There’s me thinking it’s only the men’s team that most of the media talk shite about but listening to the bbc at the emirates and they give our Girl Gunners no chance!

WTF. This is the worst ref I’ve seen after 15 mins. An obvious foul and yellow on Kim Little that knocks her out of the match isn’t even called, then Lotte gets a yellow for something much less.
Jonas has every right to be furious with this.


Terrible ref, but a good first half (as long as Captain Kim is OK). Now let’s just finish off these cynical Germans and Stanway!

It’s just extraordinary. How can you clip someone’s foot after they have kicked the ball forwards, and it not be a foul? Kim was on a breakaway. She should have yellow carded the Bayern player.

Wow, over the last 2 halves, Arsenal could easily have scored 4 more goals. So many chances saved or off the post or cleared off the line.
We do have 2 goals in the first half though and are up 2-1 in aggregate, I just hope we don’t end up ruing all those missed chances.

Another amazing team performance but we have paid a heavy price for this win in injuries. As for the ref, absolutely unbelievable decisions in the first half.
Should have been 3-0 or 4-0 but we hung on like absolute heroes in the last 15-20 minutes.

Well done ladies, just hope our captain is OK!
Terrible ref again! Where do they get them from?


LoL!! No one knows…except of course UEFA!

from Spain farmers league.


Brilliant team performance, our front line firing on all cylinders, was a joy to watch. I feared the worse when Kim Little went off but we rallied so well. We could pay a high price in injuries yet though, really don’t like the look of how McCabe went off…


As an Arsenal and Ireland Supporter, I am stressing over Katie at the moment. Fingers crossed!
