Ceballos MOTM by a mile, the only one out there who played with the tempo and urgency required. The rest of them sleep walked through the game.

Lacca made a difference when he came on too.

Level now with the scum and hopefully we don’t see a performance like that again and push on from here.

Trousers down :barscarf:

It looks like 38 points is enough to stay up this year - the bottom half is just as turgid as the top.

Apart from mickeys, it looks like it will be the lowest points totals this year for CL and EL qualification.

Everybiody is shit.

Another win an clean sheet for us though.

One look was enough to tell anyone with an impartial brain that the Arsenal goal wasn't offside on either incident, yet VAR spent over three minutes trying to find a reason to disallow it.
On the game itself, pretty dire overall. Got away with a clean sheet thanks to Keno and a bit of luck. Ceballos was our MOTM by a mile, Xhaka is destroying Arsenal. He is slow, lazy and careless. Not sure about Mari , done ok at times but caught for speed when the broke in the first half. A win is a win and all that and will gladly take it.

Hard to know what to make of that - we were fcuking awful and they had the better chances to win the game :oops: :oops:

As others have said, ceballos was motm by a mile, and leno did really well for us today too. Auba only switched on when we took the lead, and xhaka and pepe were fcuking awful :evil:

Not a lot to say about the game really, apart from I have never seen soo many men wash their hands properly and use hand sanitisers in 30+ years of supporting Arsenal!

Leno MOTM, by a mile. He made up for the Chelski game today. Who stopped Worst Ham from scoring single-handedly.

AHAHAH! Never go, never been and never will go to toilets in the stadium but my friend had to wash his hands and he said he never waited so long to wash his hands at the Emirates.

Good to see the dirty pigs starting to wash them, it was about time. If this virus makes unhygienic people more civilised, I'd say it has served its time well.

Sat there watching 70min of stale football but glad we are on the better end of the spectrum. The away game was miles better but a win is a win.

It was a performance and result which I'd forgotten was available to us. For the last ten-15 years, we've either blitzed teams like West Ham 4-0 or lost to them 1-0. A year ago, we'd have won this game 3-2 or 2-1 having been behind for probably most of the match. I will readily admit that the shammers could have walked this game 2-0 or more but their finishing and decision making was fucking terrible, almost lower league standard. We won 1-0, that's what matters, didn't get any injuries for the first time in about 25 years and keep ticking over. That's really all we can ask for between now and the end of the season. Get us over whatever line we need to be over whether that is the champions league or Europa League. Let's just finish strongly and get some positivity into the club over the summer months.

Sounded like the ref was contriving to give west ham every opportunity to score whilst denying us. May not have been good to watch but I'll take 1-0 and 3 points everyday.

Xhaka pissing away possession then tracking back as if he’s wearing concrete boots is a tragic sight.

Hate the prick :banghead:

No improvement,we are seeing what we want to see blah blah,!! Loads of work still to do but you have to admit we are slowly moving in the right direction,another 3 points,hopefully in time we will not just see 3 points but a decent performance for 90 minutes instead of in fits and starts
