An entertaining game, ruined by Emeryball.
Arsenal went a goal down after Mustafi’s own goal, and to be fair to him it was unfortunate. The ball was fizzed in and there’s not much he could of done with it, well if it was anyone other than Mustafi.
Then Arsenal responded, and how. We equalised through Torreira and then Martinelli scored his usual brace to put us 3-1 up.
But the problem with 3-1 is that it means we have a 2 goal lead. And Emery’s speciality is giving away 2 goal leads.
Watford, Crystal Palace… and then Liverpool.
We went 4-2 up and then predictably, the score went to 4-4. And then we managed to go ahead with a Joe Willock stunner.
So in the 94th minute we were going into the quarter finals. But you know what’s next? This is Emeryball!
So obviously we concede right?
And then Liverpool scored all 5 penalties to win the shoot out 5-4, with Ceballos taking a truly awful penalty. And I mean awful.
So what do we take away from this?
Well first of all we took the lead at 3-1, 4-2 and 5-4 and couldn’t keep those leads.
And second of all… actually, I don’t care any more.
Unai Emery is ruining football for me. Tonight was the first time I enjoyed watching an Arsenal game in a long time but even then, having taken the lead 3 times we couldn’t hold on.
This is just becoming a joke, a nightmare which never ends. It’s like Unai Emery is trying to get sacked. It’s like he’s intentionally making the wrong decisions in every aspect of managing Arsenal for a laugh.
The worst thing about tonight for me was when he took off Mesut Özil after 60 minutes.
Are you kidding me!!?
He was by far our best player, our creative hub and made us tick.
Yet he’s taken off.
I am lost for words now and I’m praying that come the morning, common sense has prevailed and Unai Emery is no longer at our football club.
