    Lol are you high?

    Chelsea have looked okay but doubt they'll manage to sustain this high tempo energised approach.

    I don't think that's the problem Ferguson did it at Man Utd throughout his tenure.

    Just needs to work on midfields defending and attacking patterns of play which should improve when Tierney is fully integrated into the team.

    Sad because the way Vitória Lost and because Pepe saved Unay ass.

    But seeing this match was a dream come true!

    To be fair, Nelson would have been a good player to have today. Good connections with Tierney and ESR, also set up 2 of Martinellis goals, knows how to make the ball stick in the final 3rd and had improved his performance level before getting hurt. I hope hes back soon, the EL team needs more creativity and dribbling.

    Just went through the whole thread... I don't think any player of ours wasn't slated at least once or just condemned. Carnage.

    Pretty clear they both need minutes, and it was probably for the best that they didn't play v Sheff Utd. They'll both play again V Liverpool. The plan looks sound, seeing how they did tonight. It's a long season.

    Can anyone explain why the Arsenal website suggests the game is a full house apart from the odd seat here n there but then you see the game and there are empty seats everywhere? surely not that many people buy tickets n dont bother to turn up?

    The way Tierney was turned and twisted like a ragdoll in the first goal. Yikes.

    Great to have Pepe scoring his goals finally. But as a team struggling so badly at home against (wait let me find the name again). Yikes.

    Yikes pretty much sums up the entire situation at the moment

    Have to hold my hands up. Before the game I asked why Bellerin and Tierney could play yesterday but not on Monday. They are miles off yet

    Group stages of the EL are included within the season ticket price/package. The seats were already all “sold” and for some reason during the Emirates era Arsenal FC has always counted sold seats, not actual number of people through the gates, as the official attendance figure.

    We quite simply did not deserve to win this.
    Couple points from the game
    • ESR is awesome. Needs to be awesome for the full 90 though
    • Pepe going to kick on now I think. Great couple of performances.
    • Willock looking jaded after an initial good start to the season
    • Emery is garbage
    • Bellerin is not great captain material
    • Torreira looks lost right now.
    • Emery is garbage
    • Having Tierney and Bellerin back doesn't magically fix our problems like several people suggested it would (no idea why they would think that)
    • Özil surely doesn't make that team worse..
    • Emery is garbage

    I think I've said it here last night but will repeat it nonetheless.
    ESR is a top talent, I was not only impressed by his technique and how he effortlessly beat the opposition press but his mentality. I use to think his mentality is his biggest weakness but it seems I'm wrong. He never allowed himself to be bullied by the bigger players, even that bully that tried to pick up fight with Laca did not push him around.

    Physically, he seems to be above Saka. Maybe I am getting over board with his just one match performance but I think he is a very big telent/potential.

    Guendouzi is more degerous in the final third and his dribbling ability seems underrated. His moves to win the free kick was similar to that of his Aston Villa that won us pen. Very impressive dribbler.

    Torreira in Epl is a very bad idea, not even pointing to his embarrassing no 10 position yesterday but the fact that he is not suited for defensive midfield in a typical epl team. Physically disadvantaged, lacks athletism and not so good first touch. Bang average Italian league player.

    It still feels like a loss that is how poorly we played. Keep having to remind myself we actually got all the points. Vitoria must be kicking themselves big time.
