Nah, I actually feel sorry for Arsenal fans. That team has no absolute bottle.

Xhaka might be the only one worth something, at least he could snap someone and show some fight.


Genuinely think he's one of the worst of the bunch. Seems to be a passenger in half their games and get sent off in the other half. Good passer in fairness, but doesn't control games like he could.

Yeah he's a shit player mind. But at least he looks to have some fight about him. Tbf Sanchez does as well but half the time he throws his toys out the pram. Bit like Suarez did with us at times.

Then you get 'world class' Ozil showing absolutely no bottle at all. That gif of him walking around against City or Chelsea is laughable.
5-1 FT, classic Arsenal. No doubt they'll win the return leg and it'll be another heroic failure.

Its been several years now since their Champions League adventures were anything other than one leg being decent and one leg being a catastrophe.

Yeah but competing in the Champion's League would get in the way of their ultimate goal of qualifying for the Champion's League.

In fairness the likes of Ozil and Sanchez will only come if they can get CL football....

So y'know, if Simeone/Benitez/Tuchel lands lets say Rakitic and Morata next year rather than their Europa League equivalents. And snarky people talk about how new guy has taken Arsenal to the next level, (but also relying on Wenger delivering a fairly consistent level of success)

I've long thought it was overstated how much players want to play in the Champions League tbh.

I don't think the quality of players Arsenal want or need are content simply with playing the six group games and getting a hiding off the first decent side they face. They want to win the thing, and Arsenal haven't looked like doing that for years. Whilst it may hurt them to drop out for a year or two I don't think it will lead to an immediate decline in the quality of player they can attract; it is not like Sanchez and Ozil could have thought that they would win it their when they joined anyway.

Don't know imagine a lot will do with endorsements and such that will be inaccessible if they don't play in the CL or for a big club.

Like I imagine Alexis Sanchez probably has a much larger profile than if he for example went to PSG straight from Udinese, rather than playing for Barcelona or Arsenal. (Although I maybe ignorant about PSG's reach these days)

A quick glance on Twitter shows Sanchez is on 1.95m followers compared to Pastrore 1m and Verrati 200k followers - and likewise the Arsenal twitter has 9m followers compared to PSG's 4m. I'd imagine this is important to footballers and agents when sorting out where footballers want to play football.

Doesn't that prove my point given that PSG routinely do better in the Champions League than Arsenal but have a lower reach?

Arsenal have a large North American and Asian fanbase that I think would be surprisingly loyal if Arsenal dropped out of the Champions League (take ours as a point of reference) and the Premier League is marketable enough in its own right. It would hurt them to miss out on CL football, but I don't think its a death sentence or would significantly lower their appeal to players.
Deja vu.

Gotten to the point now where I don't really care whether Özil and Alexis stay anymore tbh. Think people are being a bit harsh on Özil though, won more tackles than any other of our players on the pitch and defensively put a shift in, but attacking wise was quite poor. Alexis has been shite for a fair few games now but people never criticise him because he shows some pashun when in reality he just presses the first defender, gives up then throws a strop the autistic cunt.

Coquelin, quelle surprise, is fucking toilet and I can't wait for him to fuck off. Xhaka put in a good shift defensively, but again there seemed to be no game plan whatsoever and no connect between the midfield and the forwards to counter.

Should've played a 433, Ox in midfield, Özil RW, Welbeck LW and Alexis up top.

Just please get us a new manager, and not that fucking PE teacher Eddie Howe
