3 players who never played under Wenger scored tonight
The last player not to play under Wenger and score was Glen helder
With a winner in a 3-2 win at boro in Jan 1996

Really need to improve on all fronts in the second half if we want to return to London with 3 points.

Athletico Madrid are a very impressive defensive unit
They drew 0-0 in bacu
And 1-1 at home last season
Wengers negligence for 10 years will take time to turn round


Athletico Madrid is not an existing team


Also unless you're Portuguese then Bacu is not an existing location ;)

I'm sorry I didn't realise it had a k
Don't think I have ever seen it written
I'm lost on athletico Madrid not existing though ?

Sorry but I'm pleading the old git
When they first came on my radar was when itv showed highlights of the 1974 European cup final at the heysal v Bayern Munich
They most certainly had an h then
I will adjust with accordance with the new order though
I had never noticed the change

It might have been misspelled in the media and on television, which was not uncommon with exotic names back then.

Ozil, Xhaka, Lacazette?

You do know we're only playing Qarabag right?


We ended up bringing Ozil and Lacazette on anyway. I would have started them and then brought them off once the game was buried - same difference. But really glad ESR got his start and a goal. Not been genuinely excited for a youth prospect like this for a long time.
