The Europa League Thread


#2907

Sadly I don’t think we can win this with how awful we’re defensively. Somewhere along the line we’ll put in a defensive horror show.


#2908

Weve got money but dont spend it. Like everything else unless there is a policy change were fucked. Plus I dont the CL alone would paper over a bad 2nd league season.


#2909

Yeah without signings we wont be good enough.


#2910

We’re not a worse team than last season. We can definitely win this.


#2911

Yeah but we had a better manager last year.


#2912

That’s debateable. Not that I’m about to enter into such a debate.


#2913

Anyone good in this left other than Chelsea? Chelsea might be our Atletico in a different way. Just the thought of Hazard v our defence in a final :flushed:


#2914

Napoli are a better side than us. I’d have us as 3rd favourite after Chelsea & Napoli.


#2915

People forget the mess we got ourselves into in Moscow. Im not convinced we would have put in as comfortable performance as Atletico did in the final either.


#2916

We absolutely would have beaten OM in the final. They are garbage.


#2917

Wengers last game in a European final I’m sure they’d have been super up for it aswell


#2918

A team who only won one away game on the last day of the season, would not have been nailed on to win.
We where 4 1 up going to moscow and found ourselves 2 down at one stage and in trouble. My point was it would not have been the cake walk Atletico made of it.


#2919

Meh u throw league form out the window in these situations. We really did give Atletico who are a far superior team, all they could handle and they just did beat us. I mean for an over the hill Wenger and one of the worst teams talent wise in at least my time watching Arsenal, Wenger had the team over achieving to give them the issues we did. We’d have easily won the final cuz Wenger has bottle in cup comps.

This year with the advantage of Auba, Sokratis, and Torreira the team has improved and I think Wenger would win it going away this season.


#2920

We didnt have a shot in Madrid. They just bossed it for 90 minutes. Nah but Weng and Europe just dont go together.


#2921

That tie was over after the home leg. Against ten men we should have been able to win by three but instead we shit the bed.


#2922

We can win it as long as there is no small-dicking from Emery.

Ozil will play most of the games I guess.


#2923

Really have to hope we somehow avoid Chelsea and Napoli, I wouldn’t fancy us vs either 180 minutes. Chances are we will have to take at least one of them out to win the competition though.


#2924

Didn’t we beat Chelsea last season over two legs in the CC?


#2925

Yeah we did so who knows it’s possible, though I think Chelsea are little stronger this season under Sarri compared to the 2nd season under Conte.


#2926

And we are weaker without Wenger. Especially defensively.
