    I’ve been playing an Arsenal drinking game for several years now.

    Arsenal lose = get drunk

    I’m an alcoholic now, thanks to this stoopid team.

    I stopped watching after the second Olympiakos goal When the only Arsenal player that actually looked like he knew what he was doing our there was taken off at the half I knew we where in trouble Wenger is a idiot I know the result really is meaningless now because Schalke will be top of the group regardless and Arsenal is 2nd regardless of the result. But It is still a dismal state this team is in right now. Ramsey is officially shit he MUST go or someone needs to train this squad who knows how to turn shit into gold.

    The only move Gervinho knows how to accomplish (run to the goal line and pass a cut-back into the box) actually worked tonight. But most of the time, Gervinho did what’s he now known for: failing to see other players, no ability to complete a pass, inexplicably falling down, and being shit generally. Oh, how I’d love for him never to return from ACON.

    Ramsey wasn’t much better. Is there a Welsh version of the ACON?

    Vermaelen had a good game, I thought, and Rosicky was bright as ever. He really does help keep possession. Great movement, and great close control.

    We can’t honestly get our panties in wad over this result.

    Szczesny was very good

    Rosicky was very good.

    Vermaelen was good considering what he had to work with in his backline.

    Meade was okay.

    If Coquelin is still thinking about going, adios.

    Gervinho got lucky for his assist. Gervinho left too many assist stuck up his ass. Rarely picks the right pass. Gervinho gets the ball and we all know exactly what he’s going to do and that is not beat his man. Most of his forward momentum is vertical instead of horizontal. I love how Coquelin was yelling at him during the Rosicky goal celebration about something he wasn’t doing.

    Absolutely no impact players today: Ox, Chamakh, Ramsey, Jenkison.

    You could say that this lineup’s primary design was to ‘showcase’ players for sale.

      I find Coquelin’s decline this season rather surprising. He looked a great prospect last season when he played. He’s gone backwards, it seems.

        He hasn’t had enough games and crucially he needs to play with some experience next to him.

        We were OK first half with Rosicky playing alongside Coquelin. Rosicky off and Coquelin is unable to handle it on his own.

        There is no decline. There is just no improvement because of the way we are using him.;)

    Welcome back Mozart…please stay fit for the rest of the season..

    In a strange cross between Walcott and Gervinho…you have the ideal footballer…the one who can dribble, can shoot, can cut back, can cross, can take on people and can run faster than most…

    Ox and Ramsey are at that point of time in their game where if they have to step up their game, they need someone world class around them telling them what they are doing right and what they are doing wrong..both are woefully out of confidence…Ramsey desperately need that arriving at the box goal against his name..and Ox needs that curler from outside the area…Cannot fault the effort and the steam they guzz out..
    Chamakh won a lot of headers…I think there is no harm in trying to play him and Giroud upfront..last time we got about 6 goals..there should be something in it to consider.

      Ramsey : 76% pass completion rate. 4 turnovers (not the apple kind although they may as well have been)

      Don’t you like statistics?;)

    This is the first time in the last 10 years or so I’ve felt tired of watching Arsenal play. I’m completely indifferent towards the results, the only thing I manages to mustered after I saw the result of Swansea game, since I couldn’t watch it live, was a sarcastic “Huh” chuckle, and immediately I felt bad about it, like I was betraying someone.
    But this was my honest reaction, and I’m finding it difficult to watch them lately.
    So, what is it about a football club that should instill you with unreserved loyalty?
    The only thing for me was not the players, nor the design of the shirts, and definitely not the board of directors nor the financial results. I watched them because they played some good fucking football and they had something different about them, like when the kids had their Carling Cup final because they fucking earned it.
    Now, all of it is gone. So the question is, why should I blindly support or follow something that gives nothing back to me except anger, or even worse, indifference?

    I’m not saying I’ll stop watching Arsenal, mainly because the Club is a big part of my life as I know it, it’s just that if your favorite restaurant started making shitty food, you’d probably stop eating there. Why is this any different?

      Its got all ingredients that you would look for in a perfect love…
      The philosophy, the romance, the right people, the self righteousness, the style and more importantly the promise and hope for a perfect future….

      like all perfect love its facing a lot of bad luck and heading towards a tragedy…

      but that is no reason for you to not pursue it…

    Wow, I didn’t even know Arsenal had a Sunday League team.

    There were some decent players, though. The goalie was pretty good. The guy who scored our only goal wasn’t bad either. Reminded me of a Polish player we had once who was alright back in the day.

    The others not so much. They definitely should stick to their day jobs. The guy who looked like he had a dead rat on his head? Even I could beat that guy in five a side.

    Anyway, not too shabby for bunch of amateurs I guess. Anybody know when or if, the real Arsenal will show up? I hear there’s a real league game at the weekend?
