Funny to see people think that BPL has good teams and that Arsenal has a following. You know, there are other teams and leagues out there with better football and better teams. Eventhought I'm not a big BPL, Man city is waaaaaaay better than arsenal and it's all thanks to their coach. Wenger is an old French guy who lucked out to be handed an amazing generation of players 14 years ago and thinks he is SAF. Jose is ten times the coach he his (and I hate JM). AW can't motivate his players (like JM) can't educate his players (jack wilshere cigs and Chicha scandal) and doesn't win... Keep dreaming arsenal fans

I think the root of Arsenal's problems is the composition of the squad.  It's a bit threadbare at key positions, probably because so much dosh was spent to construct the stadium.  Also, Kroenke has a certain way of doing business and Usmanov is sidelined as a large minority shareholder.  AW has also neglected pressing needs in his squad when making purchases.  The lack of a holding type or even a box-to-box mid is an ongoing problem.  There's been little depth on the backline and the striker options are still shockingly limited.

Don't know why AW doesn't make a serious play for Khedira, who would fill a massive hole...

Because he's asking for £200,000 per week wage, £70,000 more than Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez are making.

They probably didnt want to pay that much or he should be wearing an Arsenal kit already. Honestly, no one should.

Agree with the rest though. Still no top class DM in the lineup. Maybe he can put Chambers in there and see what happens.

The idea of putting in a green youngster from Southampton who normally plays right or centre back at defensive midfield (and couldn't even get in their first team) is frankly awful. It's not a position for a youngster.

Wenger's defence simply isn't good enough to play without a decent holding midfielder. He needs to address one of these deficiencies at the least.

He's actually the one of a few bright spot against Besiktas during the qualifying. I think he can do well.

If he can mold a winger Thierry Henry to be a world class striker, its safe to say that Wenger can do the same with Chambers as a holding midfielder.

Who's watching right now?

Arsenal - Dortmund is heading the lineup. No Debuchy for Arsenal, subbing in a young Bellerin in his place. Interesting.

Any upsets you guys think will happen?

Ciro Immobile just ran over the Arsenal defense.

Wow.

Bellerin and Arteta we're being donkeys.

I think Welbeck is doing okay. Could do more, but doing okay.

Agreed. I'd also add Sánchez and Özil to this list. But Welbeck had a golden chance and he didn't even hit the target. He can't do that when Arsenal barely have possession.

Ah, well. It was always likely they would lose to Dortmund. But doing so without Reus or Gündo?an is disappoint.

They're just being completely outplayed. I know Dortmund is tough, but they are making it too easy.

Edit:

They just scored again, Dang it.

I watched the game hoping for an Atleti win cause i really really hate olympiacos ....

I was bitterly disappointed obviously but i have to admit that olympiacos was very good. I can`t remember another team scoring more than twice against Simeone`s atletico... Only Real in the final....

BTW i`ve read last year in an article about Aubameyang  that he is faster than Usain Bolt in the first 40-50m! I find it a littlehard to believe but even if he is similarly fast is still very impressive !

Bayern Munich got away with one.

Clearly a penalty but was ignored. Although, that Boateng strike was fantastic.

Unbelievable, that lummox JerBoa beats us with a wonder strike!  Well, I guess that's what happens when too many of your players are just standing around in the 90th minute.  Once
again, PLAY TO THE WHISTLE... :(

Danny Welbeck just dropped a hat trick on Galatasaray.

Outside of a Szczcesny Red Card, this was a total trashing.

How about that, Mesut Ozil in the middle and it worked wonders for everybody...
