Just watched it again on the highlights and he looks up, then looks again, picks out Auba and chips that little beauty to the back post.

Aubas movement was key also. He totally destroys the defender and keeper by moving forward then taking a couple of steps back to meet the ball.

HE WAS MAKING A RUN TOWARD THE MIDDLE> IT WAS THE PASS THAT FOOLED THEM> AUBA JUST ADJUSTED TO IT>KOLA PUT IT WHERE THEY WERENT>HE PASSES TO WHERE AUBA MAKES HIS RUN AND EITHER THE KEEP OR THE CB GET IT

An addition of a couple of wingers would make a huge difference. :doh:

Valencia fans are racist nazis. They have always had this problem going all the way back to Franco.


Bit of a generalisation.

I'm sure the vast majority of their fans are not fascists.

'Bit of a generalization' can be used to describe literally all of RG's posts so don't be too surprised

Hell no.

We want this to be an earned victory not a cheap give away, crush their hopes like we did to Napoli, kick their arse home and away, take the tie and leave them in our dust trail.

A proper victory so they can chew on it and one this club can be proud of.

Everyone else can do one, they're all weak links, we've supported and propped them up all season, but they are just not good enough, we're being way too sentimental with our squad and accepting players who can't even beat Crystal Palace, Everton or Leicester.

I said at the start of the season it was all about winning the EL.

If we weren't in Europe i'm convinced the players would have done much better in their last 3 games, firstly we would of beaten palace by playing our strongest team, infact most likely kept that team and just focused on winning those matches, we have never won the Europa League or it's previous name the UEFA Cup! We haven't really won much in Europe in general as a club.
Just the Cup Winners Cup in 1993 which don't even exist sadly anymore. Winning this will help cement a backbone for Emery to build with next season and further. It will be the start of a winning mentallity, much more so than just getting 4th or above which we did for 10 years and look at the crap our club turned into because of that loser mentallity!

We won the inter city fairs cup in 1970

If we go out to Valencia, I'm joining the Emery out crowd.

Eibar beat Real Madrid 3-0 this season

Sevilla always scored at Valencia under emery
Arsenal worse result at Valencia 2-1 defeat
Why would you negatively say it won't be enough?

Yes but Dixon, Graham, Winterburn, Seaman, Wright etc were solid all season, the odd loss doesn't take that away from them.

The players we have some of our first 11 plus most of our 2nd string are just not good enough for top 4, they don't have the right mentality, they're prone to game losing mistakes and they don't fight hard enough for the club.

Personally I've got to the point where I think we need a few more English players in the team, like your Ramsey's etc, I've seen a lot more fight and organised defending from your Wolverhampton, Brighton defenders than ones like Mustafi.

Sokratis and Holding will probably be a good CB pairing but I think we need some more in the team who know how to play and compete in Prem / League one football.
