not sure thats fair. when trying to field a team with so few defensive options then one or two injuries causes concern. if chambers is fit them they should be ok. the biggest issue debuchy since sagna will probably spend most of the season on the bench at city.

Ah poor Wenger, forced to bring out the "be patient with Welbeck" comments already, we were patient with him for 5 years, good luck

ahahahaha

last night i was having dinner with a mate and my bird and the liverpool match was on in the background, no sound on. and i could only see the screen in a reflection, and the kit was red versus green and i couldn't see the difference the distance so when ludo scored i thought it was 2-0 liverpool. went over just to catch the reply only to find it was one all. thought this is fucking great. then that cheat dived, got a penalty and stevieg put it away. sickened. karma i guess

yeah ozil is struggling big time. not sure what it is. plenty of talent around him. not the type of purchase you drop either.

The lustre of beating Arsenal every season in the champions league has kinda gone now. One of the best performances I've seen from Aubameyang so that's good to see. Arsena's defence could've done better, but fuck me no-one in that Arsenal midfield wanted to collar the game and help their defence. They seriously need more diversity in central midfield areas. Fernando who's gone to City this summer would've been ideal someone of that ilk.

City's performance was weirdly subdued tonight, Bayern were the better team, but their performance was outstanding.

Yao Gervinho has continued where he left off last season. Dunno what Rudi Garcia says to him but his approach play and build was always good for Arsenal. It's even better now but some of his finishing has been technically superb and overall clinical. I'd love it if they want through (fuck off schalke) and could maybe grab another Scudetto before Totti EVENTUALLY retires.

Yacine Brahimi's hat trick for Porto v BATE Borisov was absolutely superb tonight, loved all 3 goals.

ozil is just proving what a mistake it was to pass up fabregas.

the midfield is just so wrong at the moment, means that ozil and ramsey are both struggling. wilshere seems to be doing alright, but everyone else looks like shit.

gervinho is weird in that he's playing exactly the same way he did at arsenal. it just happens to come off. that's the real genius of gervinho, the baffling lunacy of it all.

Everton absolutely destroyed Wolfsburg tonight, really classy performance for them. Refreshing to see an English side take the europa league seriously.

Still hate the format of the competition. So much preferred the knockout format of yesteryear.

and city were under-strength or at least didn't play well

arsenal were just poor. it looks like wenger's policy doesn't even help them keep pace.

and why he thinks he can turn welbeck into a finisher is beyond me. unless there actually is something that no one else can see.

wilshire is playing very well. guess hes due a big injury
