Always an uphill battle. Can focus on the league and FA Cup now. No one expected them to get through Bayern.
What a boring match, Arsenal were rubbish and bayern weren't too special. Once again arsenal are missing a great striker. Ozil looks worn out.
I thought it was just me, very boring match indeed, but I loved how Podolski just pushed Lahm out of the way and rocketed that ball up the net.
Him and chamberlain were the only ones that were trying... Lol, it's almost like neuer was scared xD
Yeah that goal was pretty awesome! His placement on the shot was so spot on too from a difficult angle :) At least it gave the match a bit of injection...but yeah overall, pretty boring. And what was with Martinez falling down at every touch? That got on my nerves.
Giroud is the worst striker in the world, useless bastard...
my vote still goes to torres for costing as much as he has and only scoring 19 league goals since 2011, truly abysmal, in comparison hazard has scored 15 goals this season and hes not even a striker
The difference is Torres was amazing and was ruined by injury, Giroud is just crap. I seriously believe if they had a top level striker they would actually win something
@mynameisq Yup. If they can grab a striker that can run and penetrate defenses, Arsenal could be a tough team to beat next season.
All those accolades he's received for being at best mediocre. I'll always look back fondly on his Liverpool days though, what a beat he was!
mynameisq Wenger had a plan for a top striker, then said striker decided to go to Manchester united and win the league instead.
That's all he will win lol!
Giroud can be good against bad or decent teams when you get a lot of chances from the wings but when it comes to these big clubs he can't do s*it... He is not the worst striker out there but definitely not good enough for Arsenal.
You can tell that Bayern are now a Guardiola side, all of the diving and trying to get opposition players sent off was a trademark tactic of Barcelona under him. If it was the Premier League Robben wouldn't be getting free kicks from idiot refs, he'd be getting yellow cards for blatant diving.
Yeah I agree. I have a feeling Pep tells his players to play act. Respect lost.
It's always sad to see a CL match where one team misses key players to even attempt a come back.
1/8 final... Thats the best Wenger van do. Year after year Arsenal just shows us their not good enough. S
