Champions League review: The same old Arsenal

Champions League review: The same old Arsenal

"They had a period where they looked the strongest Arsenal team for a long time".

And in terms of its most popular videos, their top 10 features such hits as "WENGER'S FINISHED", "Wenger has downgraded us", and how could we forget the all-time classic, "Spend Some F*****g Money" - one for the ages.

'There will be a lot of scrutiny on the midfielder when he returns to Germany with Arsenal to face Bayern Munich in the last 16 of the Champions League tomorrow night.

There's nearly no point in being to critical of them because they're not up to it.

"They (Arsenal) have only two players of stellar quality in Alexis Sanchez, who scored and never stopped trying, and Laurent Koscielny, whose injury early in the second half gave Bayern even more space to plunder goals", wrote Henry Winter, The Times's chief football writer.

Wenger said the loss of Koscielny just after the break - with the scores at 1-1 - turned the game. Should they decide that Ozil has had enough chances in the red of Arsenal, they could demand one of Real Madrid's other stars in exchange. So that's what teams do to Ozil, and that's what teams do to Arsenal.

A change may ultimately be best for both Arsenal and Wenger, especially as animosity from the stands has grown over the manager's inability to capture a fourth league title or to win in Europe.

It has been an ongoing topic of discussion leading into Saturday's Test with Wales openly stating they wanted the roof closed. Wales' plan failed, the kickoff was delayed, and England won on opening night, ultimately costing Wales the championship.


It's been a gradual journey to this point over the last few years. When you are not at your best, it's all about taking your medicine if you are two or 3-1 down, stay in the game.

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright, and ex-Gunners defender Martin Keown - both of whom Wenger had managed, also expect the 67-year-old to draw the curtains on his career. "I feel for him - he nearly needs to be protected from himself", Martin Keown, a member of Wenger's squad who went through the 2003-04 Premier League campaign unbeaten, told BT Sport. If Wenger does not sign a new contract it will not be because he thinks he can not do the job any more, it will be because he can not stand the pressure any longer, which in turn leads to even more pressure from the fans.

"Arsenal were bullied, weren't they?"

Ozil's performances in the biggest games are a symbol of Wenger and Arsenal's overall philosophy and existence: it's more important to be pretty than effective. You know what you're getting when he's in your team.

The only support seemed to come from Bayern manager Carlo Ancelotti.

His best season with Bayern was the golden 2012/13 campaign.
