I absolutely loved that we stepped up our shithousery after they escalated it initially. They were massive pussies who knew they weren't scoring without a man advantage.

Special applause to the level of pettiness iwobi took it to when he destroyed that mans life about his breath.

I was in stitches. Straight back to school days with that move



this ...

fwiw, i have NEVER heard a scream quite as loud as the one the renneskhunt let out when laca scythed him down.

They were getting me so mad last night with their antics, dropping like a sack of spuds every couple of mins when they were hardly touched. Glad we stuck it to them

very pleased with last night though have niggling worry that his penchant for blowing good chances will cost us another game or 2... his pen convert was still a wank attempt

Still love that second trick goal. Happened right in front of me. You knew they knew exactly what they were doing in hindsight but watching it live, it fooled everyone

He mentioned the misses in the interview. I think he'll work on being more clinical. I have to give him credit for how he's responding to the penalty set back. Shows character.

He's not ever going to become more clinical in front of goal. He's just not that good a finisher, BUT... if he works hard to get into position, which he is very good at, then he'll get enough chances to make a difference despite the missed chances he will invariably have.
Yesterday was a good example of him having a great game regardless of missed chances because he had so many opportunities. As long as he keeps that going he can still be a match winner.
The problems come when the team don't create enough chances or he is not making the right runs - if he only gets one chance he's liable to miss it.
We've got our Arsenal back
