We've bored our way to another mighty draw...... Doesn't matter who we play we're just as shit every game.

Matic gets MOTM from McMenamin...? I'd have given it to De Gea.
so Matic can get MOTM for his usual game of being easily passed around and not knowing what to do if he gets the ball anywhere close to the opposition's box. great... this is what we aspire to now: Matic being Matic.

I’ve been watching Frankie Valli in concert tonight so will need a summary of the game...

This was an exciting game. The quality wasn't there as usual but it was good forward passing entertaining football for about 60 mins.
Jose says arsenal only played for a draw when United were trying to win. He really sees things differently. :))
Emery gets praise but arsenal are 5th place with a rubbish united at 8th. If united were higher up the table like we usually are arsenal would be 6th.
The praise is premature.

It went to shit when Pogba and Lukaku came on.

Not enough quality but at least there was some effort.

Incredibly lucky not to lose, given the chances Arsenal had. Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan should have scored.

Did bugger all at the end.

Nah it's not. It's Emery's first season and he has a massive job in replacing Wenger and completely changing the clubs philosophy. He only signed a few players n all but they've already made progress. They've got a steel to em but they still pass the ball really well through midfield and attack quickly.

We're miles off that amount of progress, we're going backwards

Yeah, we're doing poorly; I'm not debating that.
But in the end the results matter and Arsenal who are having a very good run apparently are still in 5th place. Emery spent way more money than Wenger but the table position hasn't improved.
The football looks good and they seem to have a spine now but before Emery gets all this praise lets see if he gets top 4. Even then he'd be only matching Wenger because the old Arsenal joke is "4th = Arsenal". Emery might not even achieve that; let alone improve on it.

5th on goal difference. Joint points with big spending recent champions and title contenders Chelsea. If they'd scored 4 more goals they'd be in the top 4.

This is an achievement. To want more is to expect too much. On top of the other reasons I said they haven't even played everybody yet, and Emery is getting used to a new and unique league.

The main thing is football wise they're working to what looks like an effective plan; solid, but exciting. 20 games unbeaten is a feat n all when you think any bunch of half savvy cunts could get a win against them under Wenger.

They haven't torn it up but they're doing well, and there's more to come
