Arsenal are proper bang average these days aren't they.

I'd still be disappointed if we finished below them.

Fair play to Traore good cross for the 1st goal and a superb bit of skill, which led to the 2nd. Hope Jimenez is ok.

I'm surprised they let Luiz carry on. He looked like he was out cold initially. They must have tested him for concussion but I would have thought these days they would rather just take him off to avoid any risk.

My local League of Ireland team Athlone Town have just lost 11-0 at home in the FAI Cup to Dundalk.  It's sad to see, they're rock bottom of the second division and haven't got a pot to piss in.  They have a decent new ground but unfortunately not the players to go with it.  I go up when I can.

In 1975/76, they played AC Milan in the UEFA Cup and earned an extremely creditable 0-0 draw and missed the opportunity of possibly one of the greatest upsets of all time by missing a penalty.  They lost the second leg 3-0.

Have a read of this article and see what the lad that missed the penalty had to say.  Only in Ireland.

Arsenal are worse under Arteta than they were Dick Emery.

They play like a bunch of individuals instead of playing like a team. Apart from tonight when they just didn't play full stop.

Conor Coady in his post match interview still clearly shaken at the clash of heads incident.

All four goals for Napoli looked like Roma allowed them the win. But Iím biased.

Watching MOTD2 and the artificial crowd noise is so loud you can't hear the commentary. Ridiculous.
