Match Review: Bayern 5-1 Arsenal - Champions League 04.11.2015
I wrote after the Swansea game that this week was a series of three tests. Well although we passed the first one, this second test was a bit more like that episode of The Inbetweeners where Will shits himself and has to leave the exam hall. To be honest though, I don't think we deserved to be on the end of such a spanking. We actually played quite well in the first half, but the key moments went against us and leaves us needing something of a miracle to get through.
Match Preview: Bayern Munich vs. Arsenal – Champions League 04.11.2015
Victory over tonight's opponents 15 days ago gave Arsenal a glimmer of hope in their attempts to progress to the next stage of the Champions League. Another victory tonight would put one toe in the knockout rounds but the odds are stacked even higher against the Gunners tonight in Germany than it was two weeks ago in North London.
A one, a two, a one, two, three, four… [The intro abruptly starts]
What is this new Arsenal that we see right now? It seems to me like a coalescing of both Wenger eras, by which I mean the steely ‘Invincible’ period of the past, and the more current era of technicality across the pitch. It's almost comparable to musical clash between heavy metal vs. Mozart; a loud thumping sound, with an underlying smooth melody that makes a hostage of your senses, in some ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ kind of way.
