As expected
Onward and upward guys


I must admit, I’m a bit concerned about Jorgs starting here (if only Partey was fit and match fit). Same midfield from Bayern – they are inviting as on… Jorgs is not an ideal player in an open game. Personally, assuming Partey isn’t considered I would have gone for solidity over creativity and started Jesus up top and Havertz at #8, Rice #6.
Tomi is the right call at LB…

Like White and Rice

I think the plan to improve the midfield is that Tomi will stay at home more than Zinchecnko, so the midfield won’t need to cover for an inverting left back and can position further up the field than last time.


Kiwior started last game (until Zinny came on and played a good game btw).


He did nothing in attack though. Slowed everything down running into the middle and dawdling on the ball looking for the Hollywood pass.


Interesting (and effective) tactic from Mikel so far in that Jorgs is playing #8 and Rice predominantly #6… We look safer with Rice at the base.


I sense a Martinelli breakWsy goal


Almost! Half time, feels like we can absolutely dew diss. Just need one of those to finally get the fuck in! COYG!


Fuck. I’m so tired of football… couldn’t even watch the last 15mins, just tired right now and it doesn’t feel like anything is going our way, and when it’s like that it’s so boring to watch this game.


Bayern: Neuer, Mazraoui, De Ligt, Dier, Guerreiro; Kimmich, Laimer, Goretzka; Musiala, Kane, Sane.




Must be a misprint: Kane Sane is definitely not true…

I assume laimer is pronounced lame-er? If so, imagine him in the premier league and having a poor game!!!


Bayern: 10 cunts (still have a soft spot for Serge)


Sensible line-up; Fats will approve. Just win, I want to see Harry the Mouthbreather in a sea of salty tears


I do.

Trossard and Jesus off the bench later if necessary.

2-1 to the Arsenal!!



We can do this.

Tomi seems a better fit for this game.

Eric Blair

Let’s finish their season tonight.

Make horse face Kane cry

We got this!! Good bench options and hopefully we can make it to 70+ min with the match secure and rotate. COYG!!


Not going to happen. I hope we make it but we are the underdogs. Last week, their players showed a higher technical level, their game plan was calm and focused and above everything else they seemed a lot fresher and faster than us. It will be very very hard.


Good line up. We are winning today!


Bit concerned about jorgs at #6 against the same Bayern midfield (middle block) and counter attacking approach. He’s great against teams trying to control the tempo and possession, but he’s a liability against direct, counter attacking football and that looks like the Bayern approach again considering their line-up. I really hope we’re not playing into their hands…


That would be the team I chose if I was Mick.

Billy bob

I hope the villa game (second half) was a blip, tonight is the best way to prove it was!!!

Bleeding gums Murphy

I actually think the second half fatigue was down to the emotional hangover of our first champions league quarter final in many years. COYG


Glad that with so much riding on this game beyond the UCL, sense prevails at last – Don’t fix what’s not broken. That said, I’m confident that we can beat Bayern. COYG!


Respect the opponent but Please be bold and play without fear. Let’s fight with all that we have and if we lose, we walk with our head and pride intact!
We are not losing tonight!
Let’s go boys!

Oh my word!
Our boys were excellent in the first half. Played like real champions. Very proud of them.
Let’s go again!


We did actually play well, that’s kind of what hurts the most. We can’t seem to sustain it across two halves, can’t get the ball in the net when we do play well, and always get punished for an error or two eventually. Which is also a microcosm of our whole season in a nutshell, and the last one too. It’s why I had to stop watching football for a few years, just such a frustrating experience when it’s like this.


It was the hope that killed! We’re drawing next game at best. Back to pre december form. Same as last year in the final run.


Players out of gas and caught sleeping


Toothless, Neuer could have put a hammock between his posts.


Arsenal is back! Top 4 is the trophy.
