Its still a micky mouse cup but if you beat Chelsea and City to win it then the value increases instantly.

Better a trophy than nothing

Glad we showed some solidity but still thought it was pretty poor going forward against a team without a striker for most of the game.

City scares me.

Beating a big team after Sanchez's departure is a big confidence booster for us Micky mouse cup or not.

1st half our passing was a bit weak as we were getting pressured on the ball.

2nd half we countered them well but our chances didn't drop thanks to weak points like Iwobi, it was literally open fkin goal and Ozil put him clear in.

The big improvement for me was the back 4, solid af after the initial goal and we manned the zonal marking quite well, all that possession and Chelsea could do fk all with it.

If we had some more quality going forward (I'm looking at PEA and Mkh) our chances on the break would have sunk Chelsea.

Ozil needs some playmates.

Chelsea managed 2 shots on target all game. One was the goal, one came just after.

This is true.

But if we win this there will be a resurgence of Wenger's minions saying he should stay.

Why would anyone say that? Just stupidity.

This isn't even a massive cup but it's a final for the fans. That's how I feel anyway. We needed this.

I'm actually more worried about the PEA deal than I am Wenger, if PEA comes Wenger can't mess up his game anyway because you know he'll do what the fk he wants on the pitch regardless.

You could stick PEA at WB and he'll still swan up front.

Think we played some really good football again at times and were worthy of the win, hope we can kick on from here and win the Carabao Cup.

IMO a cup is a cup and winning normally breads winning, COYG's
