The only fucking concern here is that Xhaka didn't play, Palace are gearing up to make him look like a fool on Sunday.

Emery didn’t even budge after we got the winner. He knows the game is up.

Pepe saved Emery's ass for sure, very worrying though when we struggled to be a pub team.

Yep.

The boy can hit one.

Way too open again. Caught in possession again.

Three lovely goals though.

That was my first thought too.

The ONLY thing I would credit emery for tonight is taking off the 3 players he did, and especially the subbing of laca - all 3 were shit and way off the pace tonight imo, but subbing a fans favourite like laca when you know that the fans are already on your back, shows courage imo

Happy for Pepe and hope he pushes on after those goals, but frankly we were embarrassingly shit and they deserved at least a draw.

I can only see more of the same tripe being served up by a clueless manager and a mediocre group of players.

All I can say is I compared him to gerviniho, gerviniho can't hit'm like that

So fair play to the boy.

I want him to do well, and will be over the moon to be proved wrong



I don't think I need to comment on the rest, the Brazilian kid again showed he is ready , the boy from Celtic had a brain fart on defending first goal, but he has a hell of a cross on him

Rodders -Emery currently has the highest win percentage (over 60%) out of all Arsenal managers. He isn't going anywhere.

Didn’t see the game. Total joke we conceded 2 to that lot. Only 2nd time in 40 European away days that they’ve managed to score more than once.

Hopefully Pepe will get some confidence from his goals and prove not to be as shit as he has appeared so far.

This ,Laca was all bad attitude after he didn't get the service ,,Maitland Niles has a massive chip on both his shoulders ,Willock was way too casual !
By whipping the youngsters off it will hopefully teach them a lesson Laca needs to play more first team however we don't create much so he will be frustrated again!
Give Vitoria their due ,they did their homework and allowed us to over commit then hit us with quick breaks ,they had some skill about them too .
What I will say is that I have enjoyed watching the 2nd team more than the first this season even though that one was tough on the eyes !

Tbf to them, those 2 goals weren't against the run of play either - in the first half they tore us apart at times and could/should have scored more than 2.

Have to say that, after a promising start, Martinez looks well dodgy every time I see him play - he looked slow to get down to the shot that hit they post (he had no chance with the follow up), and in the second half a shot from the right flew past his left hand post and he looked to be nowhere near it
