Martinez has been excellent since he came into the side. He doesn’t exude presence but actually he instils confidence in the defence and that was an excellent punch he made from a corner just before he scored. Could have easily bottled it and stayed on his line. You could see with the likes of Almunia, Fabianski and Cech that the defenders were nervous as fuck whenever the ball was played behind them as they didn’t know if those keepers would take responsibility.

How have we ended up with two good goalkeepers after years of dross?

We could all see that goal coming for the last 20 minutes but Arteta couldn't apparently. :roll:
What's he gonna do, we can't defend......this has been going on for years........
Maybe not sut so deep and try defend a one goal lead for the last 20 - 30 minutes knowing how bad our defenders are? He has to manage what he has.
How often have we seen it...under all our managers, including Wenger? One goal is never enough, we try hold on and inevitably end up conceding. We are a team that needs a 3 goal cushion before the fans can feel relatively comfortable. We are a poor side...dreadful defenders, no holding midfielder, no creative midfielder.

Why in every interview the phrase 'We are a team who believes' is used.

Believe in being average?

Have to say that I was disappointed with saka today - it wasnt that he done anything particularly poor, I just felt that he was largely anonymous :shock:

Game changed with substitutions imo - laca gave us a presence up there that nketieh doesnt, and cant understand him talking pepe off (and I'm saying that as someone who is far from convinced about him)

3 centre backs today and each one of them is shittier than the next :roll: C.unts are dogshite in the air, and their passing across the back was woeful

A glimmer of joy. Wasn't pretty, was never going to be against Sheff Utd. Two average teams struggling for form. Confident penalty by Pepe, and a smart finish a smart finish by Cellabos , even though the keeper made it easy for him. Prefer Saka on the left, AMN did better than Bellerin in recent matches. Roll on to our 30th FA Cup semi-final.

Pleased with the result but very hard to watch.

Winning goal came when I was expecting us to lose so pleasantly surprised. Like our keeper at Brighton though, why do they come off their line like that? Made scoring so much easier.

Wembley bound again but still shoudlnt be that way for SF's :roll: . The reason we were given was that playing semi's at Wembley allowed more fans to see the games but right now that bullshit excuse that doesnt apply.

Oh and please do not draw us against Man United in the semi finals. Firstly it means the Giggs goal will be getting shown even more often than usual :yawn: ... and secondly we never beat them in semi finals ... just finals :barscarf:
