I thought I saw Gattusso applaused when Mikhi scored…..

10/10 for Mkhi scoring with a number 77 blue kit.

If it’s not because of that shirt he wouldn’t have hit the cross bar and scored. :p

Harsh on Ozil.

Ozil’s closing down when we lose the ball is such piss. He’s 1/4 interested and was the reason they had a couple of fast break opportunities. If he closed down faster it gives us the chance to be in position to defend the counter. Better teams would had punished us.

Xhaka and Ozil were outstanding. I particularly enjoyed Xhaka’s rugby tackle in the first half…which was not penalized!

I like how during his time wasting episode, he gave the Milan defender his death stare, and even when the ref prodded him to look the ref in the eye he would not let go of that death stare.

What about the death stare to Kessie?

He was good, though that shot from 40 yards in the last few minutes pissed me off about 70% as much as it pisses off Wenger.

Super impressed with AMN again. I know he was only on for a short time but I don’t recall an error from him at all.

Did you see Ramsey laughing at that attempt? El oh el

I hope “welbecking” a goal becomes Arsenal canon. His penchant for uncoordinated skill is amusing in these dark times

GFSammy

So do we call the scuffed goals Welbies?

Charles Orji

Exactly my thoughts about him of recent, just to add that he’s seem to be on the decline (and I don’t believe that it’s all to do with the recent injuries alone). He should rather watch out for complacency on his side. He’s taking Wenger’s known softness on his players for granted and swimming in mediocrity.

Sandman

“HIS PENCHANT FOR UNCOORDINATED SKILL!” 😀 😀
Brilliant! _/\_

I thought Jack had a better game than a 6.5 rating. His combination play with Özil and Mkhitaryan in the first half was fucking awesome.

Mayor McCheese
Mayor McCheese

I agree with the rating, actually. He was fine, but he was too easily dispossessed on several occasions.

Maniac
Maniac

Also thought he was quite slow to react. There were several occasions where a pass or a shot were available and he either passed backwards or took a few too many touches and lost the ball. Not overly bad per se, but as blogs says, a bit off the pace.

Agree too.

Needed to keep it simpler and moving forward.

He played ok but look completely knackered with 30 minutes to go. After that he couldn’t keep the ball and should’ve come off.

Tried too much, too hard sometimes. Pushing foward doesn’t mean trying the hardest option or the impossible dribble every single time.

I agree, he was more than a 6.5.

He is courageous, but slows the game, fails to spot good passing opportunities and gets disposessed in dangerous areas.

Jack was piss poor. Kept losing the ball in the center of the pitch.
But the English media and fans will rant on about how good he was

NAY!

MerteXhaka

I love Jack, but tbh this was his 5th or 6th game with no impact at all. Kind of unfair how he gets away with it when others in his position wouldn’t have.

Loved the result!

I just noticed Milan are 7th in the league, 25 points behind the leader.

That’s what’s great with low expectations, you get happy easilier.

(Wasn’t it great to field 12 skilled midfielders like in the good old days?)

On the flip side….media painted themselves into a bit of a box since they lavished praise on just how good this revitalised Gatusso Milan side has been of late.

Revival they said.

And Xhaka didnt get a card for time wasting ??

GraeB

I’d really like to believe that his shot at the end was timewasting even if that proves his brain is lacking in realising that they throw another ball in in Euro games. Arsene was not in agreement though!

Anthony
Anthony

Agree with Arsene though. There was no need to take a pot shot, especially the most speculative of all.

He had team mates close by and couldn’t have kept the movement going, helped work the ball forward and maybe result in a goal.

It’s very rare that a shot from distance works, especially the way he struck it which was also pretty poor.

We know he has good range, we’ve seen it, but in these games at 2-0 up, you need to in those scenarios, retain as much of the possession you can

Ant
Ant

Agreed. 2-0 down, you go for that speculator every time. Not 2-0 up!

Bonus rating: 10/10 watching an Italian side get annoyed by cynical time wasting

Haha was gonna say that. If they were 2-0 up I may have put a boot through my tv due to the frustration of their time wasting. Fuck em!

steve

Completely with you there mate – the greater the level of hypocrisy in your support the more satisfying the victory i say, and i was spouting levels normally only reserved for religious ideologies and political parties.
Having already decided the outcome of this match in my head way in advance i was in a shit mood to begin with and with the usual targets of my frustration now walking onto the pitch requiring my support the only thing left to do was to describe with great prejudice and detail to the missus what a bunch of cunts this Milan side will be under Gattuso and how they will go about ruining this match as any kind of proper game of football:
They’ll score in the first half then shut up shop, not look to do anymore and see the game out in the second half – like the negative football fuckers they are.
They’ll time waste as much as possible, especially the goalkeeper – Italian bastards.
When they get into promising positions they’ll just run it into the corner or stop the progression and just pass back to keep safe possession.
They’re bound to have injuries and substitutions that take a fucking lifetime to sort out – cheating bastards
And you can bet their goal (i had it in my head that they were going to win 1 – 0) will come from a fuck up or a lucky deflection and not from proper football play – wankers, i just know it.
Throughout the next 90 mins i then proceeded to highlight every one of those cynical tactics listed above as the greatest game management we’ve seen at Arsenal in ages and each greeted each instance with absolute support and to huge adulation.
hahaha
I fucking love football sometimes.

They were diving quite a lot too. Glad the ref didn’t fall for it. How did Rambo get a yellow for winning the ball?

GFSammy

He won the ball… but ended up having the guy kick into his exposed studs. Wasn’t yellow for me but thought that was why.

I really felt the fight in the team coming from Ramsey… and i liked it

A Different George

I thought it was a foul; harsh for a yellow, but not ridiculous. Generally, well-officiated match (yes, there were mistakes, just like the players).

QMantis

Shout for Danny who scared the shit out of them particularly in the first half and his work rate was fantastic both defensively and attacking. As the last man standing of our forwards and in such an important game well done lad. Over all its a 10/10 team performance.

Adam

Welbz is not very good at football.

Otherwise, he’s got it all.

10/10 for Ozil finger pointing particularly in the first half, channelling his inner Flamini.

Milan were a bit divey! They must have been watching Sp*rs. Didn’t like that.
Lovely result mind…

Not really. If they dived, they would’ve had a penalty.

Xhaka looked so much better against a team from a league with hardly any pace, even Chambers was keeping up with the runners.

Mootilated

That is something to keep in mind. Milan are not very good. They have not been for a while. But then again, neither are Brighton and they destroyed us. So let’s hope we can keep some semblance of form for the next game and beat Watford. Even though a result in the league means fuck all at this stage.

Cant really decide who the MotM was, but I’d go with Özil. That second assist was pure class

Clock-End-Mike

The BBC go with Mkhitaryan. I think I’d agree. All round effort, even if he’s not quite back to his best passing and crossing, he was always there defending when needed.

Ozil, Mkhi, Ramsey, Kos – that’s the beauty of an all around better team performance!

That was always going to be an easy win. The Italian league is a joke right now and to be knocked out by any side in the Italian league would be highly embarrassing. Any team that could lose should be rightly Kaned for being so Dier. NORTH LONDON IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE RED

Thierry Bergkamp

Calm down, it’s one win and half time against a team from a “joke league”

Giroud\'s scorpion kick

The poor clearance from Chambers near the side line that landed like a yard away onto some Milan’s cunt who readily passed it to another cunt who almost scored. Definitively not a 6. Still rusty, not Welbeck rusty but still.

Ooooh Santi Cazooooorla
Ooooh Santi Cazooooorla

GX did have a very good game tonight. However I think there should be some strong praise for Chambers, Hulk and Welbz. All 3 have either been average but actually did a good job. I think Welbz is crap as a goal scorer but he was a threat and a team player tonight. Well done all #COYG

SAMBO

I don’t think Ozil can do less off the ball, he always lets his player play the pass securely and with ease, so much so they get to pick the best pass and go through our lines and counter. Luckily Milan weren’t great but it was obvious against City with Wilshere shouting at him as to why he cant sprint a yard to force a pass that isnt as easy. He need to be a bit better and cut an angle at least.

Much better ratings Blogs and a more balanced assessment.

1) Ospina – Still makes me nervous when coming out for crosses but he did well. Came out strong and cleared Mustaphi out of the way which is what you have to do regardless to get to the ball when you commit. Fantastic proactive clearance for the dangerous situation close to end of second half.

2) Calum – Still prefer a bit of pace on our right flank. We did not seem to have much width without Bellerin. Having said that Chambers performed well today with maturity and covered his Cbacks for those crosses from left (Suso). Also seemed like he was used (for his height) as a bit of a “Sagn” outlet heading the ball forward from the half way line.

3) Mustafi – Did more than OK. One moment as alluded to with Ospina where he was outpaced but robust in the challenge, nothing silly, went toe to toe with their striker Kalinic and several good blocks, one good clearance when Chambers was at fault. If anything on par to Koscielny.

4) Koscielny – Back to the player we know. Like Mustafi, one errand pass but other than that solid and some vital blocks.

5) Kolasinac – He had to handle the dangerous Suso which he nullified for most parts as the game went on but he also went forward and threatened their right flank considerably. A good performance. Hope he isn’t badly hurt.

6) Granit – I have been mentioning in recent games that despite poor performances by the team, Granit has been performing better. I would have flet better with a different set up but the gaffer decided to rely on internal improvement and Granit delivered. Excellent work from the Swiss today. What’s particularly difficult to replicate without him is the threat from balls over the top which he can provide when opponents try to squeeze us too high. Dodgy shot at the end excusable but has to keep his anger in check. Hairy moment with the ref as he stared down Kessie. I thought he was going to murder the man and take a red.

7) Ramsey – Good energetic performance. Did what the pundits thought Milan’s mids would do to us. Superb calm matured finish to round the supposedly maverick Donnamura.

8) Jack – Thought he needed to keep things simpler and push the ball forward but otherwise did OK helping Kolasinac keep their right quiet.

9) Mhkitaryan – Excellent contribution first half. I think he is genuinely fed up with how we play and decided to take some shots which paid off. Wenger switched him to the left for his effort to cover Suso with Kolasinac.

10) Ozil – Excellent game for us. Still strolls and ambles with some 50-50 balls we could have challenged for better but superb vision and showed his worth.

11) Welbeck – Average. One good pass that found Mhki (Somewhat fortuitously) but felt he could have at least harried their back line more. Was also a poor outlet at times and seemingly does not anticipate things quick enough but hey, he’s all we have for now (Lacazette hopefully making a recovery in time for the 15th)

12) AMN – Why the gaffer doesn’t use him on the right is beyond me. We seem so bereft of speed and threat without Bellerin. BUT fullback should be his position now and you have to admire the maturity of his play and his recovery speed.

13) Elneny – Thought he would have been a more diligent option to play ahead of the CBacks today. As is, Granit put in a good performance. The Egyptian is our jack of all trade swiss army knife. BUT the Swiss if he continues to improve is the better weapon.

14) Holding – Went into the back 3 to counter their tactical move.

WENGER – Who says the gaffer doesn’t do tactics? Was nervy about him entrusting the same set up that performed so poorly against BHA but likely he feared shaking the boat more will only add further confusion and it paid off thankfully

2 things :

1) He shifted Mhki to the left side to help cover Kolasinac with the Suso threat (prevent the Spaniard from cutting in). Mhki’s industry clearly slightly greater than the temperamental Ozil.

2) He went to a back 3 to counter Gattuso and (by that stage) Milan pumping in balls from wide (and set pieces)

Gaffer did good today.

We are 2 (AWAY) goals up on the half.

Now we need to get how heads together and finsiih the job for the return leg.

For the most part I think your points are sensible but there is one bizarre comment about Welbeck:

“One good pass that found Mhki (Somewhat fortuitously)”

What on earth was fortuitous about that? He played an almost perfect through ball that was headed straight into his path. The defender did very well to get a foot to it but such was the pace on the pass that he couldn’t do much more than divert it slightly. Just the fact that someone got a touch on it doesn’t make it lucky.

Today showed that if we are given time on the ball and not hurried, we can execute things with composure, but I doubt this result would change anything about us in the league. Dont get me wrong, I am really happy that we won and we might win europa because of the lack of english (high pressure off the ball) teams left in it but that should not warrant Wenger getting to stay…or a contract extension. Hope we win the cup. COYG!

Adam

Holy shit. Did we just win a game where we actually played well?

Charvakan

That first three minutes was frightening. We always seem to take a while to figure out the game has started. But there was some very sharp passing from the men in those attractive blue kits. And for once we managed the game in the second half. (But may I ask why Mustafi repeatedly gets caught so far upfield when we’re winning the game? Isn’t he, like, a center back or something defensive?) Milan won’t be that bad next week, so this tie is not over. I hope Kolasinac’s injury isn’t bad; this was his best game in a while. AMN was an awesome replacement, though.

Wendy Agnew

I liked the bit where the ref was repeatedly trying to make eyecontact with Xhaka, who wanted nothing else but to stare at the Milan player he was trying to pick a fight with. Also, extra points for Gattuso damn near bursting a vein, he really was livid. Made me fondly remember that time he headbutted that baldy sp*ds fella. Good times.

Olivije Žirod

I disagree that we were that good or in other words I think our performance was not much better than the City or Brighton ones.

There were two big differences today. One was Milan. They didn’t press us high, they didn’t put a man between our CB who would dismantle them, they didn’t press our midfield which let us to bring the ball forward into their final third without any trouble. We know we are dangerous when we get there. They are also fairly a slow team. The second thing was that we didn’t concede first. We were lucky at the start when they had three corners. But it was about time to have some luck this season.

Don’t get me wrong we were great at exploiting all that but we still made many mistakes. Based on our low confidence it was a great performance.

Our back 4 was awful at the start but they grew through the game. We were more confident from minute to minute at the back. And that was all about today – getting some of our confidence back. That was our biggest win.

After the Ostersunds home fixture I said Welbeck put a positive performance (defensive-wise) and that he is slowly getting back at his best. Many disagreed with me. Today he did it again but he was also much better going forward. Imo it was one of his best performances as a lone striker. I think you all really underrest his contribution today.

in Carvalhal words. We are still far underground and we will still have to dig a lot. We are not seeing light yet but we found a shovel today.

Clock-End-Mike
Clock-End-Mike

Agree that people are underestimating Welbeck’s contribution today. His running and harrying made space for our midfield, and he made some very positive contributions with the ball, too.
But we were definitely playing a lot better than against City or Brighton — more positive play, crisper and (I would guess) generally more accurate passing, more solid in defence. We did make some mistakes, in particular our passing is still not accurate enough, and we might not have beaten City still, but it wouldn’t have been nearly as dispiriting.

gooner

Why not give Sir Mo a go as our striker if running and harrying is what it takes to play that position? No doubt it would be an upgrade on the running and stamina.

Welbeck does it much better. Lots of power and pace and agility

Did Xhaka said come on F*ck off to Wenger or Ramsey?

Giroud\'s scorpion kick
Giroud\'s scorpion kick

When he finished the play with a shot to row 35 instead of keeping the damn possesion? Yes, he seemed to say something like that to Arsene, who jumped off the bench to give him a whack. Arsene probably said something like “you’re disloyal to your club”.

ordenax

After he took that long shoot, right.

Harsh on wilshere who played very well in front of Xhaka and Ramsey. Very generous with Xhaka and Mustafi. We really need a top class defender.

But why oh why is JW so slow on the ball, often has the ball nicked off his feet, or falls over when robbed of the ball.. Like the player but very frustrating at times.

It seems My psychic readings got muddled (I predicted 2-0 to Milan). I am very glad I was wrong. Much better. Why can’t we play like this more consistently?

NY Gooner

When Wenger says he has two “world class keepers”, I have to wonder what he’s smoking when it comes to Ospina. Aside from his questionable judgement at times, show me a world class keeper that can’t get a goal kick past midfield. I’ve seen high school girls with stronger goal kicks. It puts the team under pressure every time. Granted Ospina is not a bad keeper overall, but world class? No.

Olivije Žirod
Olivije Žirod

His goalkicks were directed to Chambers as he was the only one in our team capable of getting an aerial duel. That is why they were short.

A Different George
A Different George

Well, he is Colombia’s keeper and they managed to qualify for the World Cup despite having to play Brazil, Argentina, Chile, etc., so he is world class in that sense at least. Could he be the first-choice keeper for most of the countries that qualified? Sure, including England, though Hart can kick it further. (Not Germany, France, Spain, Belgium, or maybe Brazil.) Clubs? Well, I’m not sure he couldn’t play for Barca.

Dholio

I thought Mkhi was great today especially in the 1st half. He really put in a shift and I thought this was his best game for us. He worked hard and didn’t shy away from tracking back. More games like this please.

A win is a win, but that was the worst Milan team I’ve ever seen. No pace, anywhere, slow to press, no midfield, terrible technique, powder puff up front. Defending was woeful at times.

I don;t think Arsenal played that well either. Defence was crap, distribution from the back was laughable at times, misplaced passes everwhere. I think the problems are endemic, Arsenal will win the odd game but lose plenty with this awful squad.

Podb

Fuck yes. WTF was that ??
Rambo was very good and we were awesome as unit. The French ref was 10/10 for not minding a physical game. AW 10/10 sideline. Spock death stare on Xhaka a highlight …

MY ARSENAL! MY lovely loooovely Arsenal!

Does anyone STILL think that we won’t win the Europa? For some reason, Europa reminds me of THAT legendary UCL Final run 12 years back. But unlike that season, our pedigree – better than the rest but not the best…yet – in this UCL lite version will propel us to glory, ye dig?

And mark my words, Lacazette will steal the show in his homeground…..oooook ook. I shall calm down and be pragmatic and blah blah blah now. Whatever. Hmph.

A game of fallen giants. Glad we haven’t fallen as far as them. Hopefully this will be a driving force for us for the rest of the season.

Really don’t care about this win. Please Wenger leave in the summer, we’re awful and will be next season with you here.

Craig Hale

I think it’s a shame little Eddie didn’t get a run out. I was pretty disappointed with welbeck. Can’t wait till laca comes back. He’d definitely have finished that one on one that welbeck passed to the keeper. Also I’m aware that ozil is an attacking player but he needs to put a little effort in getting the ball back on the high press he literally just watched people run right past Him and did nothing to try and stop them at all

Sean Juba

I thought welbeck played well and worked hard – held the line, good passing and tracked back. Would have loved it if he got a goal. He’s what they used to say is an ‘honest footballer’. I’m not going to say anything negative as we won and it was a good team performance all round. I don’t care how shit Milan may be. We won. Away. Scored two goals

Charles Orji

Dude, you guys are so kind to Wilshire in your rating. He lagged behind a little..? Dude, he was like a lame passenger in a heated bus throughout the first half. Though he picked up on his pace, commitment, passion and work rate during the second half, but by then I was already rueing for him to be substituted with (perhaps Enini).

Neil Parkinson

Have to say my favourite part of the game, apart from the performance, was the 25 minutes it took Ozil to slowly walk of the pitch when he was subbed. Class! 🙂

Don’t get too exited. It was only Milan. It’s not as if they’re Brighton.

I think welbeck deserved a bit more for the contribution he gave, if only he wasn’t so poor at scoring he’d be up there
