    I was wondering who was going to step up after yesterday's defeat, only to remember that we didn't actually lose. I don't really feel like putting effort into this, but it's Wenger's last game as Arsenal manager at Old Trafford. The place where Wenger struck this crazy messianic pose.

    [​IMG]

    As much as it will pain some to admit it, for Arsenal fans, Wenger did have a messianic impact. He did take us to the promised land, not once, but three times. In three seasons, we won the league at Old Trafford and White Hart Lane. The highs don't get much higher than that.

    Let's send Wenger out a winner, on Jose's home patch.

    Since ArsenalTexan no longer appears to be around, KILL!

    He also is finishing out of the the CL not once but twice (and probably three if he was allowed to keep his contract). In two seasons we got thrashed twice in short order (liverpool 5-1 and Chelsea 6-0 plus Bayern 5-1 twice). The lows don't get much lower than that, and it pains some to admit it.

    We finished 10th and 12th in two of the four seasons before Wenger arrived. Perspective.

    It was a quarter century ago. Wenger's arrival is closer to the fall of Saigon than it is to today.

    That thought did cross my mind the other day, and I thought of PM'g you, but my lack of interest/expectation for this match are pretty damn low. Sad, since as you point out it's the last face-off with a few nemeses: Maureen, Tramshed crowd, etc .

    We absolutely HAVE to play Mkhi, all things considered.

    But Osei-Tutu? Who the hell is that?!!

    Wouldn’t mind seeing Mavropanos get some minutes and see what he may be about...

    Honestly if he has a good match I would put him on the plane to Madrid.

    Hope this doesn’t end up 8-2. I know we want to rest players for Thursday, but a smashing here doesn’t help our state of mind going to Atletico.

    Just saw that. Have a feeling we get rolled but still excited to see what this Mislintat find can offer.

    It's a rare day that I completely don't recognize a player in the 18, but today is one of those days.

    Wanted to see us be competitive, but Wenger's doing the right thing with this lineup.

    Agree. This game has zero effect in the league.

    In a game where he should be one of our stronger players, Xhaka is showing himself to be a weak link.

    Agreed. But he still left 3-4 players in who could/should feature in Madrid. And when Mkhi was down clutching his ankle I started to think maybe he should've even left them out too. :p

    We're not seeing a lot of the ball today but when we do I really like the way we're moving it quickly and directly.
