I’ve been quite impressed so far. Olympiakos were always going to come flying out of the blocks. We survived that and have gradually exerted control. Just need to build on that.

I'm watching a stop start stream so I've resorted to Talksport 2. Goalless is ok at this stage, strongly fancy us to do them at home.

Could have easily been two nil down in the first five minutes , our passing going forward is fairly woeful , Guendouzi getting a bit of a buffeting .Luiz nearly scored for them , Lacazette should really have scored for us .

Saka doing the clever stuff ; f**&&^%# up the easy stuff .

Needs a goal either way to lift the game . Arteta half time inspirational chat and we win 1 - 0

Can’t help think that playing the 2 strikers together away from home doesn’t make sense.

A game crying out for Pépé and Martinelli hasn’t been great

Er. Not quite going to plan so far after the break. Sloppy.

Great stop by Leno (even if Ba was given offside).

More sloppy stuff preceded it though. Plus the unnecessary yellow

Aubameyang is having an absolute shocker . We can't hold the ball for more than five seconds .

Yes. That’ll do nicely.

Super skills by Aubameyang and Saka.

And almost another (twice) from the corner. Mustafi looks in trouble though.

Excellent result away in Europe. Looked solid for the most part. Certainly effective.

Hard to get excited about that match , if you are one who is buoyed soley by results alone then it was indeed excellent ; the entertainment levels along the way though were pretty dire .

My expectations have been managed downwards over a long period.

I’m just pleased right now that we no longer look like a joke team giving away daft comedy goals on a regular basis. It looks like a move in the right direction.

Excellent result away from home in a tough place to go. Olympiacos may be no great shakes but away from home with the long travel and a passionate home crowd I think most teams would happily take that result back home in the first leg.

The goal was brilliant. Aubameyang doing so well to keep it in and under control, Saka still bombing on in support and an inch perfect ball across for Lacazette.

We have been raving about Martinelli as an amazing find for a £6m 18 year old signing, but Saka is right up there. Tie him down to that contract.

That's it. Not a particularly good performance but Arteta has cut out the "shooting ourselves in the foot" performances. Long way to go but we look like an organised team at last.

I’d be fascinated to see how Saka handled a game in the number 10 position, he has speed, weight of pass and goals. The best academy player since Ashley Cole surely

He’s up there, although I’d say at the same point in their careers Jack Wilshere looked like he had the world at his feet in a very difficult position for young players to break through. That first season as an 18 year old (I think) was unbelievable. Injuries did for him. Very excited about Saka though. For me the most impressive part is how he’s taken so naturally to playing left back - it is just unheard of even in very senior players to do it this well. I posted a while back about it being too early for him to go to the Euros but take age out of it you have Chilwell who has done very well for Lecoester and has the position for England but who else is playing left back better than Saka? Shaw? Rose? Bertrand? Nope

I think Saka is possibly our biggest prospect.

Martinelli has done well but I think at this point the hype has gone too far. Comparisons with the likes of Brazilian Ronaldo and Juve's Ronaldo are a step too far at the moment.

Great result last night but boy do I find watching us mentally draining.

We have improved defensively but the lack of quality and creativity from the midfield is palpable.

I watched young Martinelli make a million runs from out to in last night and barely a single ball was threaded through the lines into him.

Things improved a little when Ceballos came on but generally we are a side who are too slow in possession, too willing to play the easy sideways pass and unable to find those killer passes.

Contrast us with Liepzig the other night, I thought their ability to move the ball quickly and accurately was miles ahead of us. Infact, most of the top sides move the ball with a pace, accuracy and intent that we simply don't have.

I log-in and go the Supporters Forum and am immediately logged out. I then log-in again but do not have the option to post

Now some might argue that me not being able to post is a good thing but it is frustrating nonetheless.

.


I commented yesterday that I thought Martinelli had a bad game, actually it might have been a little unfair.

Pépé,Martinelli and Lacazette should be playing on the shoulder of their defender but have to drop short all the time because our midfielders are unable to pass progressively. Think of all the Walcott goals and assists that started with cesc or Cazorla playing that cross field ball behind the full back. We have none of that. Until we buy more creative midfield players I find it very hard to complain about our strikers and wide players.

The interview Lacazette gave after scoring at the weekend was telling when he said something like he wasn’t getting much service but if he got 1 chance during a game and missed it he felt terrible and his confidence was down but he needed to remember we are going through entire games without creating a single chance.

All in all I think Arteta is doing well, we look harder to beat but I think we keep making the mistake of not playing Aubameyang up front on his own away from home.

Hi. I have someone else who said the same thing. I think the server people might have changed or upgraded something causing that.

Try logging out, expiring the boards cookies for the site, then log back in again. That should fix it.
I believe whatever change they did caused our sessions table to crash earlier also.

Note that I can expire cookies for the site but I would have to do it en masse so everyone will get logged out.

If that doesn't help, try logging out, then go to this link : index.php

It is the Secure SSL link for the site and does not contain the 'www'. You may need to create a new bookmark of this link.

Özil should be that person to thread passes. Imagine what Fabregas would do for our attackers? We are far from the finished product. I'd like to see how much we improve when everyone is available.
