    Its one thing missing football on Saturdays and a Salah goal all through summer, but you also miss these golden nuggets. Arsenal fan TV, its lovely.

    I go the game that rarely that I honestly forget just how fucking good we are in the flesh.

    I was about 20 rows back behind the anny road goal, & watching us attack so close second half I just kept thinking & saying "How the fuck does any team defend against this?!" They were playing at 100mph, one touch clever football, in & out, around the box, it's so much quicker when you see it there.

    Tbh they kept their shape really well (most of the time) when inside the area, & pulled off some great blocks too, I think against most sides we'd have gotten a few more goals for sure.

    Also, VAR can suck my balls. The one shitty point of the match yesterday was the announcement that there was a VAR check for a red card offence, didn't know for what, who, when, or anything, & it seemed to last a couple of minutes. Every fan in the ground was jeering & booing, arsenal & us.

    A word on their fans, despite having shitty repetitive songs, their applause to Chamberlain when he came on & the way they acted after the match was boss. All fans were let out at the same time (is that commonplace now?!) I was walking past/through them & a fair few were saying how good we were & none were acting like bellends that I could see either.

    And Insig, you my friend, are a legend, & fantastic drinking company as per usual!

    Gotta laugh, after losing 3-1, giving away a penalty, and being directly responsible for the third goal, there's an article on Arsenal.com with them talking to David Luiz about how solid they were at the back against us.

    Had a good view from above in Upper Main Stand. I was amazed by how good we were. We just rolled over them and they didn't seem to have any option but clearing the ball while hanging in the ropes. Atmosphere was good as well.

    Thanks to Woland for sorting us ticks. Now it is a second day hangover and a bank holiday sunday to make it a hattrick. Cheers Fox for a good evening on the ale yesterday!

    I heard a series of questions posed to big Virge that included "who is the best player you have ever played alongside".  "Bobby".

    Bobby is so important. His workrate, his skills, his understanding of the game. All amazing. Players like Mane and Salah, don’t get me wrong, are easier to find. Bobby is just sensational. Our Bergkamp while Salah/Mane is our Henry to use Arsenal as example.

    Frontpage on Echo said "Reds back on top"... and Arsenal was still second as They were before the weekend.

    To be fair, it’s not his fault Emery inexplicably played into our hands with the “diamond.” Klopp, like everyone else’ couldn’t believe it - absolutely the worst possible system to play against a team where the main creative threat comes from the wings. Neville thought they were going with 4-3-3, which could have troubled us (and did briefly after Lacazette and Torreira came on).

    I can't listen to that shite, under Wenger they were really naïve and always tried to play their own game resulting in many, many embarrassing results. Emery compromised on his ideals in the pursuit of a result which is something they will need to do against superior sides, at least until they improve and you get cunts like that moaning about it. Probably moaned about Wenger doing the opposite too.

    It's only natural that fans moan about whichever approach leads to losing. Emery has done nothing so far to improve Arsenal's poor record against top 6 or in away games. Until that changes, the fans will moan and rightly so – just like we weren't hypocrites when we decried Hodgson's lack of ambition and later criticized Rodgers' lack of discipline.

    I think he is a good coach, but the evidence is that he is reactive, hence the better 2nd half performances last season.  Right now i think his hands are tied due to non cl footy and not having the money to strengthen all areas of his team.  By current form, i think right now they could come 4th...if they dont fall apart.

    The subs changed the game. We lost some momentum and they got back into it in the second half.

    I think Emery got it right setting up to be more defensive. Their chances in the first half were as good the ones we had. It would probably have been worse for them if they tried to out punch us.
