Thought Ozil had a few good angles for a shot but nice game. He seems to be organizing and directing more and more with each passing game.


glad you mentioned it, cos i was going to , but didnt wanna be to whingey.

i often see games where (particularly) Ozil, Santi, Rambo get run over from behind and fouled and the ref just signals play on as if it had been cleanly nicked. also Giroud will get held, elbowed and whatnot and as soon as he wins a header, the give the opposition the peep of the whistle.


Always think it's important to point out due to the amount of games it happens in now.


We do play for it at times, but it seems that at least in Europe, you have to to get anywhere.

Look at the Giroud card incident. They got an Fk in a dangerous position just because pardo acted like giroud had tried to kill him.

One of theirs literally threw himself to the ground in the box but got rightly booked for it.

Giving the team talks still I see

that's it folks were dead certs now

dead certs of what...winning by 2 goals? Do you know our record in Greece? This is the best Olympiacos team vs the weakest Arsenal team that has faced each other. They already beat us at home. What is the logic behind us going there and winning by 2? I just don't get it

We went to greece in 12/13 15 points off the top having just lost 2-0 at home to swansea
Losing 2-1 featuring squillaci gervinho and jernade Meade and with martin angha on the bench
The season before we had lost there 3-1 with santos and chamakh
The negative bollocks was running high with you last week

No he didn't play the game that was the last time before Wednesday that we played at olympiacos
He played in the 1-0 defeat in 2009

If arsenal get knocked out tonight with Liverpool, Manchester utd and possibly Chelsea, not to mention Tottenham in the Europa league it will take on a lot more importance to the fans this is season.

Not a single english team is good enough to win the ~Europe league. All of them will go out early and they will pretend they never cared. I think tonight will be the biggest eye opener for our fans how much the standards has fallen. We will lose big tonight. Mark my words. I will put my account on the line. If we go through I will leave. If we dont....give us one day of free pass where we can say what we really want about wenger

Why make silly promises you never keep anyway
Come on
Say what you feel
Stand by it
If you make a mistake
Admit it
It doesn't make you weak
It makes you a man
Everybody makes mistakes
It's how you deal with the aftermath that is important

Bellerin was very good home to bayern Munich Everton and at swansea
And he had a good game home to zagreb
