Should've been 4/5-1. But I'll take a 2-0 over a 3-1.

Just hope those missed chances don't come back to bite Arsenal Away.

Of the two strikers, Lacazette actually started the second half ok - holding the ball a couple of times and linking play. Auba did nothing at all and continued to do nothing (but make errors) for the entire match.

Torreira was excellent and gets taken off for Elneny?

Ozil was running the midfield and gets taken off for Mikha - when that happened we dropped our level.

Not sure WTF Emery was doing.

Let's pray 2-0 is enough.


I thought the same. End of the day it’s a great result and most of not all would have taken that.

Agree though Unai disappointed me with his approach second half. We could have finished them off if we’d came out playing the same


We’ve drawn and lost too many games trying to finish teams off when we’re 2-0 up.

I’m happy to have a manager who will see the game out and take the win.

Very satisfied with no goals conceded. I remember Pool being 5-0 up against Roma at home last year, only for it to end 5-2 because they conceded carelessly.

They struggled a lot in the away leg and lost 3-1. Won 6-5 on aggregate but it was very close. A 5-5 would have out Roma through on away goals.

Keown is off his rocker thinking Kos will lead the backline and command. He's no defensive leader. Never talks.

2 - 0 is better than 3- 1 and I honestly could not have seen us get 2 in that second half. This is a good result, if we play our full strength team next week with maximum heart and backbone then we can do it so long as our strikers sort themselves out.

Good performance but we really could have done with that third goal.

Think we’re going to need an away goal in Naples.

Just seen the goals. Ramsey will be missed. We have no other cm who does that.

Koulibaly OG was fortunate. They should sell him to us.

Great pressing by Torreira. Shit shot but Lampard made a career of those deflections.

We have to do a job away. Good result but winning at home has been our forte.

Whoever decided to retract rambo's contract. Needs to be fired end of season. Not investing in a key player is utter failure.Leaving on a free reaching his prime as well. Not matching him with mhkitarian wage is even worse.Poor management someone clearly did'nt do their homework on the squad. Emery has a player that plays the way he likes but he's leaving.The directors cut his legs. There's no CM/b2b mid like rambo out there. Thats why Juve was all over him and did the business. Juve know. Allegri knows. Look how no one came in for ozil.

Its really good looking at two midfielders that are quite matched in workrate. Rambo & torreira worked well. Ozil's game is just a good match with rambo. They understand each overs space & movement .Combines wenger knew his pattern of play and transitions alright. Ozil's game is pretty poor without rambo in the mix to free him and allow him to go into pockets. Ozil is just a drifter that causes overload on the wings this allows rambo to just go into attacking spaces left by ozil & allows him to ghost in. Wenger knew his patterns for sure.

Anyway rambo's gone.I Just remembered we lost mtinslat as scout as well. Who the f**k is running the team.People responsible need firing end of season immediate effect. Just Pissing me off thinking about it all. Every time we look like we will put something together this leaving shit happens. We just got 3 players on a steal and we sack the guy that scouted & lose a player smh. After rambo leaves the focus should be finding a player that can play with ozil otherwise their's going to be loads of everton esq games and no more creativity.
