Match against A. Madrid - You reap what you sown

It is the crop that had been selected and nurtured by Arsene Wenger for 10 years or more. And tomorrow, he will reap this bitter harvest, a cumulating in his downfall at Arsenal FC.

There is nothing left in the locker, a group of talented individuals, still trying to play as a team with plenty of waylaid passes, mistimed runs and clueless on how to use the balls with players not running into channels, and telegraph passes which opponents so easily anticipated and intercepted.

Defence?
A bunch of nervous nellies without a leader and simply cannot communicate with each other and the goalie.

As usual, Crab Football galore and hoping one piece of brilliant individualism during counter-attack will score one goal to reach the Final. And of course, on a wing and a prayer that MIDFIELD and DEFENCE will hold out for 95+ minutes and more.

Ospina as MOTM then?

...............................Ospina

...Bellerin ... Mustafi ... Koscielny ... Monreal

..............Ramsey.....................Xhaka

...Mkhitaryan.............Ozil..............Welbeck

............................Lacazette

This is our best and most settled side of the season with a live-wire Welbeck running and harassing A. Madrid players all over the pitch. Hopefully, his presence and physical intimidation will panic A. Madrid defenders in the box and we will one or two penalties?

1-0 is not gonna happen. The only way to win this game is scoring 2 goals or more. 2-2 draw or straight win 2-1, 3-2 etc. Look at the CL 2nd legs results, teams are gonna throw everything when they know exactly what they have to do to win the tie. Atletico has too much quality upfront to keep them not scoring for 90 mins. They will play on counter attack from the get go. If they score first then Arsenal have to throw everything at them to outscore them. That's the only way to win the tie. It will be very different game from 1st leg.

Atletico Madrid's last 10 home games - 0-0, 3-0, 2-0, 1-0, 3-0, 3-0, 4-0, 1-0, 2-0, 1-0.

I wouldn't hold much hope for the 2-2 draw.

They don't mind going 0-0. Our best chance is playing for the same instead of teething to score and try to win 1-0 at the end. Cause they will just try to hang on by the skin of their trash after 65 min. They might even try to counter attack early on but they will go for all out defense if it's 0-0 on 70 min.

We will most likely be trying to get that 1 goal to put the pressure on them and end up conceding in the first 20 min

This match epitomizes his shortcoming as a coach, and his bizarre transfer policy, buying players that can't communicate with each other.

His tactics are based on wingbacks ... but both Monreal and Bellerin can't crossed passed the first defender.

His tactics are based on quick one-two through the centre ... but he bought players without a first touch and closed control.

His tactics needed intelligent players like the French Spine with telegraphic understanding ... but his Brit Pack tends to run into blind alley with 3 or 4 players instantly pounced onto the ball carrier ... and well, a hopefully pass into space or usually just lost the ball.

Oh well, 3 more matches of Crab Football and move on to the fun of anticipating how many dumb jackass of a player will leave with him.

Sure, we needed to score and wenger's attack was as penetrating as a bowl of squishy spaghetti, but I will be very happy to see the back of this small, fragile, nervous keeper.
