The defending was laughably bad. Get Alex 3 lungs back, as he changes the way we attack and the line we can play with his pace and insane work rate. Choose your pairing and back Cash. Then play the same 4 en route to Athens and top 5 respectability, with a Wembley trip in February/March.

Far too many changes across the season to date in a position which needs consistency more than any.

Lacked intensity and upping the pace around their box. I don't think the atmosphere played any part. They're certainly very loud, but it struck me as quite carnival esq more than anything. They got behind their chaps in some style, fair play.

Hopefully some lessons learned. AZ appear a bit gutless looking at their result and the manner of it. Back on track against the Bosnians at home. 15 points, win the group and into the last 32. Up the fucking Villa and up into this Culutural Tower thingy I go. Enjoy your Friday.

He looked pretty exasperated to me.

If not actually disgruntled, he was far from being gruntled.

I think it was when the third goal went in he went full Basil Fawlty.

When Catweazle asked him if he was thinking of making a change, I lip-read: "Joder lo sabe. Ya no me importa. Es como si hubiera muertos vivientes aquí."

I don't speak Spanish or lip read - but if you and the translation is correct, Emery was far far from pleased.

Being in transition and with our current injury list, perhaps he thinks this is our best chance of Europa qualification? I can't imagine him giving the hair dryer treatment but I really hope he gets his disappointment across somehow - it cannot continue all season.

I may have been making up stuff though.

You could tell he was well pissed off with Chambers as he had yet another calamity and Metty Cash was immediately summoned from the warming up subs.

Quick translation of the Spanish: "Fuck knows. I’m past caring. It’s like the living dead in here"

Have I missed it but there seems to have been absolutely zero mention of our game on the Guardian since the MBM of the Liverpool match. Bastuds

Chambers is definitely not an Emery fullback. Too slow - can't bomb forward, can't chase back.

Maybe we should have brought in someone to challenge Cash then? We had all summer to..

On the crowd noise. Legia fans I’ve spoken to don’t understand why we in UK stop singing when the opposition score as this is when the team requires the support even more. They keep going full until the final whistle and only then will criticize the team for their performance. This is very admirable but personally I wouldn’t want to lose the opportunity to give a player  a good slagging
during the game.‬

What a defensive shit show.

And nothing summed up the game more for me at around 83 mins, Martinez had the ball at his feet & was slowly stood around waiting for some decent movement in front of him as we are sat 3-2 down.

He must have had the ball at his feet for around 30 seconds, or at least it felt that way, & there was very little urgency.

Its a toss up for me as to whether Chambers or Lenglet were the shittest players on the field, from both sides. I had heard that Lenglet was slow, but fuck me, he has all the pace & mobility of a 357 year old oak tree.

On the positive side, Duran scored again & Zaniolo showed some bright glimpses.

Overall, a bit of a shit show all around though...

It's the same at PSG.* You get a wall of non-stop singing: song after song, it is relentless. However, it is completely independent of what is happening on the pitch. There is hardly any variation or reaction. I found it quite disconcerting to be honest.

*Spit! Wanky club.

Relentless support regardless of performance doesn't sit well to me, a bit too fascisty.
