Our team is full of b**tards now and it's great. Torreira, the humble Latin b**tard, alongside Xhaka, the handsome b**tard. Sokratis the hard man b**tard, Guendouzi the young b**tard, and of course Lichtsteiner, the b**tard's b**tard. I love them all

Missed Arsenal's b**tard side, good to have it back.

Looking forward to tonights game for a change, Sunday was a massive confidence booster. Great to see some passion back in the side. Jose will have united fired up and if they get an early goal we might struggle to break them down. I'll take a draw but that would be disappointing on current form of both sides.

Bit of a bogey ground so a draw would be a very good result.

Wenger took a lot of slack in his final few years, But lacazette and Aubemyang were 2 excellent signings. Arsenal were always creating chances since Van Persie left  but not clinical enough. There was other areas he didn't really fix though   that Emery has  like in midfield with Torreria..

First time since 86 Ferguson or Wenger weren't involved in the fixture

2-2 draw while not playing very well, with a young team and Iwobi. He drives me bananas some times, for all his quickness of feet he often belabors the ball, or just hoofs it against the first defender in his way.

Really liked the look of the Guendouzi lad this evening. Showed for every ball he could and think he was a fantastic presence in the middle of the field.

Mickey Targaryen should have scored at the end, and the one he did ping in from the end line was some rattle.

Disappointed today. 2 poor goals gifted to a very average United side. Sunday cobwebs were on display in first half. Second half we bossed things. Guendozi is a class act, so confident on the ball. Still unbeaten in 20 with a creeking defence. Any word of Monreal returning? Badly miss him, Kolasinac not in the same class defensively or going forward.

Onto the Saints this weekend and 3points

In fairness the two goals Arsenal got was probably bigger gifts. How did you make out Arsenal bossed things second half? they only had the lead for about 30 seconds in the second half and that second goal for Arsenal came at a stage when they weren't even creating chances. Arsenal pushed for the winner late on alright and DeGea somewhat made up for his earlier error.

I know what you mean by Guendouzi but he makes me nervous. He's so supremely confident on the ball that he'll try to dribble his way out of his own box and can be easily knocked off the ball.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.
