So simple. Boot the fucking ball up the pitch when the clock is reading 94 minutes.
We’d win everything if you took the first and last 5 minutes of each half away. Seems as though we just lose all concentration
Sad thing is the away goal wouldn’t even matter if we could actually score ourselves.
Yup we’ll 100% struggle to break them down next week. All our good chances came from beating their full backs on speed, we won’t have the chance to do that next week.
Xhaka just turned into every Arsenal fan
Did Arsenal fans and Xhaka just become best friends?
For a change, instead of all us being angry at Xhaka, we are angry along with him
I’ve wanted him out of our club so many times before, but I’m actually scared to know who would’ve stepped up like this without him or Luiz here.
As soon as Cedric had that hospital pass back to Gabriel they got the throw in for you could tell we’d give away a stupid goal.
Saw Gabriel give shit to Cedric for that pass. That's when I knew we were crumbling at the end.
Too many average players in the team.
Average is being generous. Cedric and Willian were awful.
We did same shit against olympiacos,leno had a bad clearance,saaame fucking shit one year after
For all his issues he’s a natural leader and they should be berated.
So so poor, somebody MUST be a leader in the back. Seems that everyone would rather wait for someone else to do something.
I honestly missed Luiz at CB
Love how other players cost us the game and people here are still slating Xhaka. You dudes need a hobby.
Hes played like every game this season and was crucial for us whenever we look good, has hardly made mistakes. he was even blamed for Leno fucking up. i don't get it. why hate a dude this irrationally? hes been great for us this season, hes done all you can ask of him
I can’t do this anymore.
Same. See you Sunday then.
That was Cedric.
And Martinelli but we can’t criticise him right?
Holding has the game of his life out there and gets completely let down by Cedric and Gabriel.
not sure what the fuck gabriel and cedric were doing playing tiki taka in the corner. invited pressure for no reason. gabriel also got very blatantly mugged in that sequence and no foul was called.
When Xhaka’s the one annoyed at you for dicking around at the back, you know you fucked up
This guys the actual captain of this club lmao
The squad (and Emery) picked him for a reason. Whether the fans like it or not, he is one of the only leaders this club has. We need to replace him in our midfield, but we can't do it without players that give a shit, and are willing to step up. Just imagine how much worse this lot would be without Xhaka, Luiz, and Tierney constantly yelling at them. Utterly spineless, almost all of them.
The second we tried playing it back in the corner on that left hand side between Cedric and Gabriel you could see it coming a mile away. 93rd minute just hoof it clear ffs
He has a point.
Hope he told off partey as well. Gave the ball away so many times
Xhaka has been top 3 players of the season for us. and that's exaclty why we are were we are. dont get your hopes up for next game lads just accept the seasons done and hope we clear all this fucking deadwood once and for all.
Yeah tbh we’re in year 1 of maybe a 3-4 year process, we’re gonna be meh for at least another year lol
It was good having captain Xhaka back let’s me honest.
For 3 months more at max hopefully.
He's still the captain as far as I'm concerned.
He has flaws in his game but leadership isn't one of them.
The regularity of this team switching off is staggering
The wolves gane was all good until POST added time where we leave ourselves open, conceded a pen, and a red ...
Toxic twats the lot of you! yes we were shit but writing us off after 1 leg is ridiculous,anything can happen in football.
Some people wrote us off before this leg, to be fair.
The defense has been shaky all game. There's 0 connection between Gabriel and Cedric. They keep putting each other in shitty situations. No leader at the back, this is why we need Luiz with all his baggage.
He shows leadership as usual.
That wasn't Xhaka. That was me screaming from my living room across the Atlantic.
Arsenal find new ways to destroy me emotionally. Every. Single. Game.
Tbf Cedric was on his right foot, Gabriel tries to clear it but takes a poor first touch and is closed down
The throw in was poorly defended with Martinelli, Cedric and Ceballos. Martinelli was way to over enthusiastic with closing down, should've jockeyed. His next mistake was hoofing the ball in a 50/50, which lead to the guy getting in behind
I was thinking all of this while it was happening. Calamity of errors
Then the corner is poorly defended, Pepe with the assist in the middle of the goal, and Cedric losing his man far post. Bad team goal, poor performance
Xhaka has grown on me so much. His redemption arc is unreal
Which one? Wonder after how many more you people will stop forgiving him
Wait, but according to this sub he should be screaming at Arteta? You’re telling me it wasn’t Arteta that fucked that up and missed all those chances throughout the match?
Where was that before the 90th minute then. The amount of shitty ass clearances that should’ve resulted in them scoring is ridiculous.
Xhaka knows exactly what it’s like to cost his team
Xhaka criticizing others for fucking up. Oh, the irony!
Should be screaming at Arteta too
F**k it, Arteta has to go. Sorry Mikel but this job is too big. We need a quality and experienced manager
At least someone cares
Lol at xhaka of all people saying this
Imagine the audacity of being screamed at by xhaka for giving the ball away lol
Dude is way more of a leader than that fucking scrub Auba
it'll be his turn to fuck up next week
For him to have been saying just shows the shambles we're in. Fortunately there's another 90 mins to earn the win.
hey mind u kicked the ball at Chris Wood big man would be my comeback
all of the dumbass Arsenal players yelling at each other is that overplayed Spiderman pointing meme come to life
Xhaka your pass from their 3rd back to Leno is what started their attack.
Didn't cedric commit a similar pass that cost is a goal is another game?
The goal of similar to the mistake with Liverpool between Gabby and Cedric. They need to to talk.
Same shite that knocked us out against Olympiacos. We should just clear our lines at times. Basic game management.
Gabriel is shit under pressure
Cedric should have cleared it before Gabriel got involved.
Says the guy who makes the most mistakes leading to a goal for the opposition. This is what makes him despicable
This sub: captain
If only he'd followed that advice against Burnley
Lol rich coming from this shitter but he's absolutely right here, surely other players must be looking at this and thinking 'we aren't close to being good enough to play out the back'
Even Gabriel and Cedric must think ffs we're done trying what the manager wants, when we clearly aren't capable
Hypocrite warning - moaning to players about silly and unnecessary mistakes? Piss off Granit. Pot calling the kettle black!
One of the better players today. Name one mistake
Spoken by the man who gave the ball away about 12 times.
Certainly not today. I think i saw him misplace one pass all evening
The real captain has spoken.
Xhaka can fuck off he makes more mistakes than anyone
And ppl say Cedric is a great signing by Arteta lmao.
Xhaka: Do as I say, not as I do
