    Well done to Danny drawing that PK. Normally I say I don't like embellishment but in this case.... ;)

    My prediction was right for 13 minutes.

    Should be a penalty on Chambers. This ref is screwing Milan really badly. :ROFLMAO:

    Total dive by Welbeck.
     
    IAH-Gooner repped this.

    Where does Welbz sit on our PK-takers list? I don't recall him taking many in the past.

    Calhanoglu turns, touches, and shoots from 25 yards to the far post to put Milan up 0-1. Great shot. Xhaka couldn't close him down soon enough. After the restart, Welbeck falls easily in the box to win a PK, which he converts to give us a little breathing room again.

    seconded. I missed the PK shout for Milan, but sounds like a similar PK decision that didn't go their way

    we are applying lots of sustained pressure and good scoring chances here at the end of 1T. Good to see.

    Was that Mkhi who was in one-on-one w/ the keeper and decided to pass and get intercepted? Messi would've surely shot and scored, even from that acute angle. Seconds later Wilshere showed him how to have go by yourself! Nice finish to the half... hopefully that'll boost our positivity.

    Taller keeper would have saved Calhanoglu's shot.

    Definitely a dive by Welbeck, but as we have learned the hard way, they count all the same. We definitely came to life after conceding so let’s hop we keep it up in the second half.

    Honestly we have been dead offensively. I get that we just have to prevent them from scoring to move on but Jesus... let’s not let that door open. Shots on goal please.

    It's not great, but it's not as bad as you think:

    Shots: 7 to 4
    On Target: 4 to 1
    Possession: 61% to 39%

    Just saw the replay of the PK shout from Milan. Looks like ball bounced up off Chamber's upper arm in an unnatural position. No advantage, incidental. But after Welb's soft peno, I'd be aggrieved if I were a Milan fan

    as I watched that, I thought to myself, 'I wonder how NorthBank feels about that'.

    :D:D

    I kinda figured it'd be something like that.

    You know me well. Honestly I feel a little embarrassed by that dive. I'd rather not win this match on a dodgy PK call as well as a questionable non-PK call. So how about we stick 2 more in the back of the net the proper way, and win it fair and square!

    Running behind on the game. That is an atrocious dive by Welbeck and an even more atrocious call by the ref. Awful. But helps us so there’s that.

    Super dodgy. Not sure how the official standing 6 feet away saw otherwise.

    Ugh, awful pass by Ozil there. On one of our more promising breaks.

    First 5 min of 2T we are looking very lively, having nearly 100% possession at their end, and forcing saves from Donnaruma

    Random thought, new rule. Whoever is fouled for the penalty has to take the penalty
