Disgraceful performance in that match overall. We just couldn't get a grip of the game.

 

Defense is atrocious, still. No creativity in the midfield. Barely any chances created. Any chances created were not taken. Why in the world did Martinelli not start is beyond me.

 

Credit to Olympiakos. They played well and kept pushing.

 

4th/5th place is only possible if other teams drop points, which is always a bad thing to bank upon. Winning Europa was the only way to guarantee CL next year so that some of the big names stay. But, it seems all over now. If other teams don't drop points, we might not even play European football at all next year. These are tough times for our club.

 

In a way, that's fine, I guess. Yes, reputation and finances take a hit by not playing in Europe. But if we just take a season where we have only the league to focus on (lesser matches), I hope we can make sure we utilise that time to just get a few things like our playing style, fitness, mentality, etc. right.

 

I don't know. I'm sad is all. What hurts more is the performance. We were playing exactly like we wanted to justify our position on the league table.

Heres what happened: 

 

Although arteta started a strong side but we were too complacent. You could see that. Auba was non existant in 1st half,ozil misplacing passes. I dont remember ozil misplacing so many passes in a single game and Pepe the idiot who did 5 good things and ruined them all by doing 20 idiotic things.

 

2nd half, apart from Auba n ozil nobody did anything. Martinelli sub was so late. Pepe should not have played after 75 mins. 

 

I want to slap pepe so hard. Idiot of a footballer.
