But Arsenal did the thing that Britain has been doing for thirty years:

Found a Polish person who does the job better for less money.


Those downvoting this are the ones who’ve had them working in their basements. And then voted to leave because they’re taking our jobs

You can’t see him


Three points


A tense 1 nil win I sense. Remind us of our mortality it shall.


I get what you’re saying. I believe 2-1 – but fighting back (possibly late) from a 1-0 deficit. Don’t honestly care how we do it. JUST DO IT!


Yeah I think the sarcasm was missed there


Great bench again. Let’s go!

Although, I thought Jorgi would get a rest ahead of Tuesday’s crucial showdown with the Portuguese Atletico Madrid

Maybe partey will be ready for Porto so Jorginho can rest.

Man Manny

How fragile is a battle hardened veteran like Jorginho? He’s barely played this season by his standards.


Exactly. He isn’t that old too. His lack of pace gives an impression that he’s at the end of his career, but dude just turned 32. He can manage these two games. And I am pretty sure we’ll see Partey for few mins this game.

Eric Blair

And he’ll get two and a half weeks off after the Porto game.


Today’s game is more important until it is not…😉

We are playing ten against eleven


I know we’ve been playing well but going in with only 10 men could be a risk?


Kiwior is an obvious mistake, But whats up with Martinelli? Injured?


Cut foot. Where have you been?


I didn’t know the cut was serious. Also MA was characteristically ambitious on the status in his presser. Anyway, since you seem to know more, any chance he’d make Tuesday against Porto? We need him obviously




Allowing rest today – to ensure he’s available for Tuesday.

Man Manny

Reserve bench is gradually filling up nicely.
Three points is all I ask for at this point. An avalanche of goals is a bonus.


3 points is all that matters. Please just win guys. Let’s go.

Lord Bendnter

Can’t believe we spent this much for a goalkeeper and we can’t even trust him to play against his former club, pathetic!!


Was personally wondering if we should expect to see Karl Hein as a halftime tactical substitution (not because Ramsdale does anything bad of course, and I’m sure Aaron would also never interpret it as such and would be 100% cool with it)


Oh dear, it is half time and you might be right.


It’s at the point now where I’ll be disappointed with only 3 goals!


3-0 for us. Trossard, Kai and Saka.


Let’s help Ivan Toney lose some money!


He probably bet on them to lose this one. Dummer than I thought if not 😉


I can almost hear the commentary:
“The ball is lofted into the box and like a 30/1 outsider in the 4:15 at Doncaster, Ivan Toney gets something on it!”


A win and an utter humiliation of Maupay would be a magnificent result !


I’d just love Maupay to try his shenanigans against Ben White – and end up getting sent off with a serious injury.


Seriously don’t give a fuck how we do it today – as long as we do it. C’mon you Gunners. There’s a possibility that this is a banana skin – keep that in mind.


Don’t say it. Don’t fucking say it.


Ramsdale! Oh Goodness!! What was he doing? Just do the basics like Kelleher has been doing for Liverpool since Allison’s injury.


This was going to happen from the moment the whistle went, the narrative was just too strong

Bleeding gums Murphy

Pathetic. Shocking. That’s why Arteta brought in Raya


Arsenal need to move him on. You just cannot rely on him at all.


They need to move Ramsdale on as soon as possible. The offence to him or those that believe he is a good keeper but he is simply a liability when we need steady hands.


Now is hardly the time to pile on him. Arteta needs to pick him up, fans need to help him now else this could spiral into more mistakes. Hopefully he has a better 2nd half and we go on to win it.


He is paid a fortune for basically doing nothing right now. I think it is fair to expect a level of performance from him and if he fails that then I think it is reasonable to be critical of him. This is a critical game after all.


Having said that – that was a good save from him.


Two now.


Critically he made two critical game winning saves which in the end was critical in us critically winning a critical game ! Don’t be critical of the lad he’s still a superb keeper but critically not so good as Raya with his feet & distribution which Arteta I believe finds critical ! C’mon the Gooners top of the league !!!!


This could be the most important goal Havertz ever scored in an arsenal shirt yet!!
