Should have either let Ramsay or Auba take the 2nd penalty.

Nevertheless, finally the PL will be rid of those thuggish orcs once and for all. Plus we can stop hearing this media nonsense that those frothing-at-the-mouth yobbos think we are their rivals when we are not.

Auba for his hat-trick or Ramsay just to wind up the classless orcs.

In the state we are in as a club footballing wise i don't care how we win as long as we win. The club will turn a corner when we get a new manager but till then we have to maintain a semblance of solidity on the pitch.

To be honest, for the first 70 mins they had their entire team behind the ball and did a decent job of pressing us.

Yup. They literally had a flurry for 5 mins at the start then showed no ambition for the rest of the game. They were rattled after conceding becuase they actually had to play.

That last penalty was probably the most brain dead move I've seen all season and we have xhaka.

Good win even though it took them a while to get going.

Glad Lacazette got a goal for his confidence and PEA coming good again.

Still concerns me how we're not playing top level football yet, we have the tools in place, but someone is letting us down?

We're just not looking free flowing enough considering our fire power, we need to work on that.

1] Manager

2] The whole team is low on confidence, just look at the standing and how far they are off the top.

Reminded me of that idiot Eboue shoving Kuyt in the last 30 seconds of that game against Liverpool after rvp's extra time goal.

So I take it Xhaka will now start the remainder of EL games and Elneny will be "demoted" to the competition no one cares about anymore...

The game was so boring. It's sad to admit that I have become immune to the boredom, and expect it.

The only other time I have flt like this was when Don Howe took over from Terry Neil, and the whole crowd were bored shitless every week. Getting GG in was a breath of fresh air. It injected a new lifeblood into everyone.

We need the same to happen now.
