Anyone got the phone number for the department where you can claim two hours of your life back?!
What a tedious pile of shit that was!

If we played that game another 10 times, we'd win it by three or four goals 9 times and draw 1-1 the other. Fucking strange game.

I hate watching us away from home were such a bunch of fuckin pussies it's unreal



So called hardman xhaka wimped out of three shocking 50/50 tackles - if either of my sons chickened out of tackles like that, I would fcuk their boots into the fire and would never let them play again :evil: :evil: Cowardly b.astard :censored: :censored:

It's almost difficult to be happy with the 3 points, that's how bad it was.....Ranks as one of the worst I've ever seen.
Watford were the better team I the second half
With 10 men they still created more chances than we did, picked up all the loose balls and cut us open several times.

Holy Moley we are piss poor.

Glad we won but it does make you think that even if we do get into the CL it'll be pretty pointless with this bunch.

Absolutely. What is the point with the current defence, and a lot of the midfield? Unless there is a massive change in the Summer it is basically 2007 to 2017 revisited.

I thought I'd watched some pathetic Gunners sides in the 60's but none were as bad as this lot !. Watford with 10 men were the better side & probably would have murdered us with 11. We were gutless - but very lucky. :barscarf: :barscarf:

If ever a win felt like a defeat. Knowing there are three more away games to come where we'll most likely get turned over playing like that. And Napoli :banghead:

Mhiki seems to lack any aggression or commitment to win a constested ball

Am I the only one who is willing to make some allowance for the performance because we had an early lead and they were down to 10 men ? Don't get me wrong cos I know how poor we were, and I know that it was only a lick of paint away from being a 1-1 draw and 2pts dropped, BUT I do suspect that the mentality of the players was (wrongly) based on a belief that the game was won early and they were sparing themselves for Thursday night. One of the things that has fcuked me off most about the modern day AFC players, is that they have this totally undeserved sense of arrogance about them - so many times we have watched them phone in their performance as they seem to think that their name and the name of AFC is enough to beat any non top team, and the total lack of effort of course then leads to dropped points, and maybe some of that was on show again tonight ?

I'm not happy with the performance but I am delighted with the win regardless, and I am very happy about the manner of the goal (ie through hard work and closing down).
