It’s debatable but for the sake of argument. A toe.

Offside is there to stop an attacker gaining an unfair advantage. How on Earth is a toe an advantage.

Bin VAR, *%^@*** disgrace and hugely unfair on ceballos

But it is still offside.

We should reserve complaints for the ones that are actually incorrect.

Yes, but having to deal with dictatorial oppression within their respective countries in Africa, Latin America, depending which ones they are. Then coming to play in Europe, UK, being subjected to racism is a bit much. Same applies to black players born in Europe, Demba Ba, recently, though born-raised in France, was subjected to racism recently.


Racism is as big in english speaking countries as any other. I'm of a pale pink complexion and have experienced racism in India. The main difference is that it is more aggressive and obvious in our so-called educated white societies.

Ceballos again busting a gut to get forward despite not being the fastest. Maybe he knows he has only 60 mins to run but good spirit.

But what's the alternative. Is it he's only offside if a leg in front? 20%? . We'd be here till Christmas waiting for them to figure that out.
At least offsides are mostly black and white.

The one that really needs work are handballs and penalty 'contact'

Racism is far far less of a problem in English speaking countries than people think. Believe him I have in Easten Europe you'll see the difference.

His shoulder was offside and that’s a dive anyway.

If our goal was chalked off for such small margin, why is that not offside?

One shot from side looked like he trod on him the other shot looked like he didn't.

Every time the comm says they've never beaten us in an away game the more I cringe and curse him for saying it.

Precisely. There has to be a boundary somewhere. Wherever you draw it there are going to be the same problems.

There is no ways we should be trailing to that lot. What a load of rubbish.

Since the opening 10 minutes it’s had a pre-season friendly feel to it.

That doesn’t look good for Lacazette (or us).

It's not a secret that our priority is winning the Europa League so might that have filtered into the mindset of the players?

Most of it will be taken by their keeper changing his boot.

Anyone counting time? We need a Twitter statto to count this regularly and let everyone know, because it feels like it’s total bollocks every game.

I thought we had a decent first half. Less 2nd,

Thin line between success and failure in the league. Going in halftime 1nil up makes things much easier.

Their goal came from an attack down our left, not sure it would have happened with Tierney there. I really don’t think we can afford to miss 1 of our core players in a game right now.

Looks to be a shocking result

I sincerely hope that we aren’t going to have to try and win the Europa League with Nketiah as our main striker.

Some good movement and attacking intent in 1st half. Still very afraid to shoot. 2nd half has been rubbish. We thought we'd won and now chasing a draw against Fulham who have been terrible. This is not players, this is management and Arteta should take the blame for this mess.
