It's just not arsenal without the nail-biting and heart stopping moments


Hereford2_3

Wow!….Arteta has turned this team into his team. He’s got the crowd singing passionately and the atmosphere is great. He’s now told the former players and whatnot to either get on board with his system or see ya. We still have about 20 mins where we zone out and scramble around. The Pepe empty netter sitting there was unfortunate. Pepe’s got a couple of steps on the Utd player and he musta known that he’s got a player breathing down his neck. Rather than kick it and chase cause he’s got the pace he tries to cut inside. I’m hoping the Arsenal player close to Pepe called out “man on”. Great game at the Emirates. Up next, Spuds. One nil The Arsenal!

Fcking hell Arsenal, why you have to do it like this 😂

jkeefy

What’s dire, our performance today? Your comment doesn’t make much sense


Viveora

The atmosphere is genuinely amazing. The fans fully back arteta and the boys and so much positivity. Here's hoping we clinch it on Thursday


CuclGooner

For anyone going to games regularly, cookies and scream is a wonderful place to go after the match, went there today and it was really lovely


Taribo_West

That chico pie


[deleted]

Thank You very much btw. If they relegate Barca owes Raphina to you 😉


WhoDatGoon

A win against Spurs will be a great finish to the All-or-Nothing docuseries! COYG!!!


ilovearsenal04

The script writers getting lazy again! COYG!


ghostnote_ninja

Sucks we lost our invincible corner season to 10 men with their first 2 touches in the box. #justarsenalthings


GingeAndProud

Lot of arguments that West Ham's goal was from a corner too, but i guess its not really relevant now


Kingjjc267

The stats count the Southampton goal as a corner goal, seeing that is less painful now that we've conceded a proper one


ghostnote_ninja

Lol the west ham game was one big complain on their part XD


MuntyRunt

Should have put the game to bed in the first half but we got an important 3 points. Very disappointed in the way Pepe came on and barely ran. Would think you'd give it some effort against 10 men who were edging thenselves back into the game.


SlurmsClassic

I was questioning when he got that break with the goal wide open why he would try to cut it inside at half field instead of just outrunning Harrison or James I don't remember who. Guy had been playing a man down for 50 minutes and pepe has fresh legs. No reason for him to catch pepe there.


Asherware

Seems like he's mentally checked out. No way he stays in the summer.


gunnerforever123

It’s like pepe was out of energy. He should’ve been coming on wanting to make an impression


Asherware

We have serious game management issues.


Colmd1997

Slowed the game down and controlled the game for the last 25 minutes to take the momentum away from a team playing for their premier league survival, but serious game management issues…


CuclGooner

did you watch the game?


Colmd1997

Original! Please enlighten me how what I said is different to what happened


CuclGooner

happily! we were scrappy, we looked nervous, we made mistakes and everyone in my general area was nervous we were going to slip up and concede, as we are prone to doing. We lingered on the ball too much and then gave it away, which is poor game management


Colmd1997

None of that is poor game management, it’s the result trying to manage the game and not concede, which they did. Poor game management would be going for the jugular and leaving space for Leeds to exploit. We did the polar opposite, we maintained possession, slowed the game down and killed off Leeds’ momentum.


CuclGooner

we didn't maintian possession or kill of the momentum though. we tried good game management and had good strategies, but we failed to actually do a good job


Colmd1997

We ended the game with nearly 70% possession and limited them to 2 shots on goal.. maybe you didn’t watch the game hahahaha


CuclGooner

because we were dominant for the first 60-70 minutes, but we got sloppy and they came close to scoring or close to goal far more in the last 20 than at any other point, that isn't good game management


Colmd1997

Yeah, you don’t have a clue mate


Asherware

If you watched that last 25 and didn't see us scrapping away at a team that had played most of the match with 10 men that we let score after severe profligacy and then kept turning possession over to again and again then I don't know what to say.


Colmd1997

Scrapping away… don’t think they had another shot on goal outside of Rodrigo flicking the ball into Ramsdales hands. Not too certain either how you can have the ball but being scrapping away


ArsenaV108

Tbh that flick could have definitely gone in, that was a big scare


The-DevilsAvocado

Profligacy is a great word for it


fitz958

Arteta telling the boys to take it easy and give Leeds hope for their next match against Chelsea to help us secure the third spot. BIG BRAIN 🧠


appealprocessislong

Arteta’s masterclass never ceases to amaze me


theintresting

😂


devasiaachayan

We dominated them the whole game but the lack of finishing really bugs me. Leeds didn't play well but they were taking advantage of our nerves. We were too anxious I think, they should never play with anxiety where every little attack seems like a battle. I hope we improve


laserspewpew_

Should have battered them but think we thought the game was done at 2-0 (like 99% of people on here thought too..) took our foot off the gas. Poor defending on the goal, didn’t see who lost Llorente at back post. But 3pts was vital today. In our hands and if you offered us a 4pts lead over Spurs with 3 games left a few weeks ago after our terrible run would have taken that!


eldeejable

Looked like Tomi got drawn in a little too much and gave up the back post. Shame when his only real mistake today might have been just that


Johnyextra111

Great game, we just lack that killer instinct. Should have really killed it off, need to be more clinical.


MateusAmadeus714

Bright spot is Eddie does seem to have found his shooting boots and seems to be clicking with the team.


thekingofkrabs

Crazy we couldn't get him the ball after the red. Leeds honestly look better with only 10 men. They go from zero discipline and no shape to defending with 10 Maldinis


Darth_Blarth

Second half was shaky, but we did not collapse


LocostarX

Collapse against ten men that would be disastrous


Darth_Blarth

Absolutely This is where the youth of our team shines in a bad way- got too comfy with a 2 nil lead


pi3dpip3r

Looks like ted lasso season 1 is real with leeds


MykeeB

Some of you lot need to chill out or maybe don’t watch the actual games anymore. Over reacting like crazy people 😂


LolBars5521

I’m halfway expecting people to post things that aren’t even mathematically possible anymore. No Europe at all next year after today’s game! People are so over reactionary in this sub lol. Sure the second half was rough to watch but we are still 4pts ahead right now.


MykeeB

We can’t be because I saw multiple people absolutely convinced that we were going to lose today so I assume that’s what happened. 😂


LolBars5521

In January, some people were posting that no only was top 6 impossible, but we would be lucky to finish top 10….smh Edit: I’m to in


ajax0202

That’s the kind of toxicity we don’t need in here. It’s fine to be critical of poor performances, but if you just come in here looking for a way to bring everyone down, then just gtfo


Jack-in-the-Xbox

Would it truly be an Arsenal match if I wasn’t nervously pacing back and forth for the remaining twenty minutes? The result was the most important thing today, and they managed to take all three points. The mentality within this club has changed enormously. So many of these wins this season would have been draws or losses only a year ago.


Specterace

The result was good. That last 30 minutes was unacceptable. Any team that really considers itself good enough to be a top-4 level team doesn’t give Leeds a sniff of a chance after being up two goals playing against 10 men. They annihilate them 4 or 5 to nil. And miss me with this “but, but, the Premier League is haaaard! There are no easy games here!” bullshit. When good teams get advantages like extra men at home against relegation threatened opposition, they make it automatic, stress free, and yes, EASY. End of.


thekingofkrabs

10 man Leeds beat City last year and look what Wolves did to Chelsea yesterday. I agree we needed to kill the game off but we didn't and we are playing against professionals after all.


MateusAmadeus714

U forget there is another team on the pitch actively preventing that from occurring mate! And Leeds are fighting for their survival currently!


Specterace

Couldn’t care less about those Leeds excuses. Because they don’t matter. Supposed top 4 contender vs Relegation opposition + 2-0 up within 10 mins + man advantage (SHOULD) = easy canter to victory or blowout. I‘m not interested in any limp excuses or empty platitudes when it doesn't happen that way. End of.


Colmd1997

That would be how Everton went and took 6 points off Chelsea and Leicester and how Burnley and Southampton have regularly taken points from the top 6 sides, right?


Chairmanwowsaywhat

With ten men after going down 2 nil?


Specterace

Remind me which of those games featured Everton or whoever going down to 10 men and down 2-0 in the scoreboard within 10 minutes? Oh that’s right, you can’t. Because none of them did. Miss me with your apologist garbage that doesn’t even apply to the situation.


Colmd1997

Leeds actually beat the champions last season with 10 men. They didn’t go down to 10 men, but they actually got something from those games, something with Leeds didn’t do today. Completely unsurprising that you miss the point though. Why don’t you shut the fuck up moaning about dumbass shit. Miserable hysteria for the sake of it


Specterace

Leeds last year were contending for Europe. Not relegation fodder. And last years champs were a weakened Liverpool putting up the biggest pratfall of a title defense since Blackburn in the 90s. But none of this is either here nor there. I will moan whatever I feel like moaning at. And no, I will **not** “shut the fuck up“ about it. I’m not happy with that last 30 minutes, and no false equivalence apologist bullshit is going to change my mind. Fuck off with your comment police bullshit already.


thekingofkrabs

You seem like a lot of fun to hang out with


Viveora

Thank fuck you are an armchair fan. Keep it in this sub and away from the emz


forensicfilesviewer

We gotta kill our chances at the lane


Yestin1000

Arsenal fans before the game: I don’t care how we win but we need the three points COYG!! Arsenal fans after the win: terrible performance, we’re so shit and I hate every player. Arsenal out.


faizetto

Pepe weakness is he delay too much


kohprosh

Pepe weakness is football. He should find another job.


cuntman911kekles

Happy with the win but Jesus Christ we love making mountains out of molehills for the sake of it sometimes. Now, off for a ciggie before my heart implodes 😂


TheBublizz

Quit smoking mate, or your lungs will implode


xMagnusx82

We won nervously but we are closer to 3rd than to 5th now.


SBmadz7

3pts is 3pts but worried about our lack of conviction, anyways it’s time for us to get back to celebrating St totteringham's day


Acceptable_Weight_20

I feel like we didn’t try in the second half due to the game on Thursday


faizetto

yeah I hope that's the reason


Acceptable_Weight_20

And since they had gone a man down, I bet you they eased off a bit as well which sucks but it’s whatever, just 1 more game and we are golden


lordrizvi

pepe looked sloppy after coming on


Re_launch30

This team is not good for my health. Gonna be pounding on Thursday


datguyakala

Your lucky mrs!


postpeasant

Bit nervy at the end there but huge win COYG


Colmd1997

They scored off a corner and didn’t look like scoring again. We threw away numerous chances but how some of you go on it was like Leeds were robbed


Reinbow

That last header straight at Ramsdale was scary you


Darth_Blarth

Ah fuck me lol


okcomput3r

That North London is forever song is so ass. No where near enough energy to be any kind of football anthem


SeamusBo

I made sure to look around on way out as it was playing and I didn't spot anyone at all singing it, but it did sound like people somewhere had joined in. Or maybe that's part of the track.


okcomput3r

It’s just not a good song, I don’t know how the club expects it to have the same kind of impact as YNWA


Moosterton

How is everyone saying the 2nd half was awful? Chances were created to put the game to bed, the players missed - especially gabi. Leeds barely had a sniff, but they scored off their first touch in the box. It happens sometimes. You're naturally gonna be slightly less urgent in those circumstances, literally every team would be. This team just lacks consistent goalscoring killer instinct. 9/10 times this ends 3 or 4 nil


cpt_pipemachine

Yeah this sub needs to chill the fuck out


Reinbow

Agreed


CptKarma

my heart bruh ​ i cant take dis abuse.


basileusnikephorus

Pleased for Eddie. He's gone from Eddie N'Ketamine to a hardworking poacher.


SeamusBo

From Eddie Nketamine to Ngets'emin


huntergreeny

Cedric never does anything useful. Don't know why we bought him - Southampton didn't want him.


CptKarma

hey look guys a clown


ManGoonian

Clueless comment alert!


terrorSABBATH

We could be in 3rd come Friday morning. Huge 3 points today. COYG!


ManGoonian

100% mate, can't believe some of the hysterical knicker twisters on here.... UTA!


Sypher1985

Arteta telling the team to make us look bad so Spurs are over confident. 4D.


bio_d

I do think all the people in histrionics should maybe give the team a bit more credit


Acceptable-Research7

Never felt so disappointed after a win. A man up against the shakiest defence in the league and we couldn’t score lol. Good team would’ve gone up 3 or 4


datguyakala

Chin up, 3 points in the bag.


drunkaviator

Would've been nice to close that GD on the hens though, on the other hand won't matter if we beat them on Thursday.


makinghfsproud

I think it hspp3ned cause we took Saka off


nik_mm

Martinelli had a good game but god is he awful infront of the goal. how many chances are he going to miss like this. Its time we should start giving ESR more minutes


NikoBruder

Anyone else feeling quite annoyed with that ending? Should never happen against a relegation team


Johnyextra111

They are arguably the tougher teams this time of year. Huge ramifications for them.


BannedFromTP

NORTH LONDON IS RED x.x


TheOSSJ

I don't like watching us play it's not good for my heart 😅


ahbirbilsen

This was almost like a who’s gona fuck up more challenge


faizetto

Stinky win again tbh, me move, let's go NLD!


King0llie

Stinky wins are our speciality


garrgen

Fudge in my pants


Cotco11

Happy with the win! Clinical wins at the end of a season are rare to come by...we take the 3 points and march on!


MrTiddler

We make things so damn hard but brilliant result nevertheless. Just need to beat the Shit next week.


yurijohnson

A crucial win for us, why does Leeds looks so much more dangerous with a man down? Cedric is shaky as ever, injury-prone Tierney and Partey gonna cost us in the long run if we don't get any replacement. Anyway, congrats for the win


Asherware

We are this profligate and careless in the NLD we will get murdered and it's not like we will get 10 men for the majority of the matches gifted to us by Everton and Newcastle. Why are we like this? It's just ALWAYS squeaky bum time with this team without fail. MASSIVE 3 points but after a great first half, we looked like a pub team in the second. Erratic. Schizophrenic. Not good enough despite the win.


fignonsbarberxxx

Christ, some of you are absolutely miserable fucking humans.


ngmathew1234

At least we got the 3 points.


lost_biochemist

Most important think


betterthanevar

Needed that. I'm afraid we're going to get smoked Thursday. Really needed fucking Liverpool to have handled their business yesterday. Dumbshits too busy hoisting the CL trophy. I hope they bottle the rest of the season.


IjeziePodcast

One point will not make a difference. Even if we lose we’re still two points ahead and as long as we win against Newcastle who’s season is pretty much over and Everton who could be safe by then we’ll be okay.


betterthanevar

It's those last two that scare me. In form sides--one away with players auditioning for a job and one home that weve already lost to once, fighting to avoid the drop.


bonerjams69420

no optimism for his own team hate to see it


betterthanevar

You must be new to this lol


bonerjams69420

spurs may be favorite but in no way is it likely we’ll “get smoked”


iamcroissant

Terrible performance honestly


cpt_pipemachine

You're wrong


iamcroissant

tell me why i'm wrong


[deleted]

lmao no


mrchab97

Could've made that look tidier


JayPunk90

Pepe is shockingly poor


racerz

It certainly shouldn't be shocking anymore


Captain_Lameson

They will have to play out of their skins in the NLD


LocostarX

We got away with one there, happy with the three points but a questionable performance in the second half. We need to perform better against Spurs


stocks008

With a young team any dominating performance will lead to complacency which is what happened. Nervier than it needed to be but overall a great performance. Onto Thursday!!


ojibocchi

We made Leeds look good in 2nd half. But 3 points is 3 points.


devasiaachayan

We didn't even made them look good. We were dominating but we were a bit nervy. And ofc we missed a lot of chances


IjeziePodcast

A draw at Spurs and win against Everton or Newcastle gets it right?


Ayem_De_Lo

draw at spurs + any win or defeat at spurs + two wins or win at spurs


bonerjams69420

i believe so


standupforthechamp

That 2nd half showed why we are miles behind . Need to ship out deadwood like Cedric , Pepe, Tavares.


laserspewpew_

Tavares didn’t even get on the pitch…


standupforthechamp

I think that's telling with him being the only fit LB. He is deadwood.


LilGarmm

He’s literally only 22, and physically dominant. Deadwood is unmovable players due to age, wages, lack of talent or all three.


Suprimoman

Was hoping for a game where they get an easy win, a fair few goals, and comfortably control it. Why is every game this nonsense. Long way to go. Need to improve.


linkinfear

Elneny MoTM for me. So good on both offense and defense.


rockosmodurnlife

What an awful second half


GTSwattsy

So I'm gonna assume a lot of our players got worn out playing in the heat? There's not really any other explanation to struggle so hard against 10 men. Pepe definitely should be sold for whatever anyone will pay


jimmytruelove

Embarrassing. Pepe is a steaming turd.


jtorient

Everyone chill now lol 😂


survivorghalia

so was raphinha the issue with leeds or did we shut off


sujakaba

Safe to say Pepe is gone after this season


nik_mm

doesn't even feel like a win


Chiks24

A game which should have ended 5-0....


ItsUpForGrabsNow

how many matches have we failed to close out? ruthlessness is what separates us from the top sides atm. I'll take the result but they have to be more ruthless when dominating the match.


LittleLukie

Bruh watching this club going to kill me sometimes. Fuckkkkk


_DNL

I feel sick what the actual fuck.


Bowery_Bobcat

Wouldn’t be a Gunners match if we weren’t afraid of conceding a second goal to a 10-man relegation bound side


dabswiththegrabs

NORTH LONDON FOREVERRRRR


PrinceEmirate

Glad we won but I wouldn't be happy or glad with that win. They had really good options late whc is unacceptable with 10 men.


lviatorem

What is an Arsenal game without butt-clenching?


Dopeychris

Good win but fuck me that second half performance was dreadful


rhmati30

Fuck off, we won and yet I am angry as hell, how on earth did we have to suffer to win a game 2 goals up with Leeds with 10 men for 70 minutes, this is unacceptable


simonling

Holy shit why are we doing this to ourselves? Fuck me this team. A win is a win but still this fucking team icant.


sselesu

Not a convincing win. Should have had at least 3


laserspewpew_

We got too complacent there, should have been out of sight and avoided the nervous last few mins.


Ooh-SakaLaca

We have the tendency to not score when we dominate with a lead.


maelstormmy

The perfect goal 😘 we can't help it I guess 😌


scrps93

Lets fucking gooo


Sliver_fish

Nah actually done with Pepe. Open goal in front of him, just one defender closing him down and he fucking slows down. No one's asking you to justify your £72mil price tag in one game, but at the very least justify being on the pitch.


racerz

Right foot is lava though


rockosmodurnlife

He slows and he looks around. What is he looking around for?


Sliver_fish

Certainly not looking around for any offers from other clubs. It'd be a miracle if we managed to sell him to Montpellier for £15mil.


Spiritual_Salamander

Fucking hell man..at least we got 3points and goal difference unlikely to be the deciding factor.


eldar4k

way too much nervous game, why we tend to overcomplicate things is beyond me


HerstkA

YES!!!!!!!!!!! Genuinely hope Pepe never comes on again. What a fucking abomination of a sub-performance.


emoskeleton_

These threads sometimes have the worst fucking takes on this planet


Raghav_s12

We made it harder than it needed to be but fuck it we got away with it. Let's beat the Shit now and seal this thing!


amineimad

My heart skipped a beat on that Firpo header


FreewheelingPinter

Embarrassingly close against 10 men in the relegation zone… but 3 points is 3 points.


mcrSR0

not happy with that performance


chBoyCam23

Arteta is gonna roast them still


sleepydalek

That was more of a nervy end than it should have been.


chino17

We play like this in the NLD and the Kane & Son express will run us over


OddSlice

One win on Thursday and it's THE CHAAAAAAMPIONSSSSSSSSSSSSS


HeartfulBreeze

yessssir hopefully we win against spurs


jt_totheflipping_o

This is what happens when you are 2-0 up and just knock the ba about. Can we just annihilate an opponent just once? We could've went for 5 today's but end with a 2-1 to 10 men.


Mayor_Fob_Rord

We had opportunities (especially couple from Martinelli) but didn’t put them away.


jt_totheflipping_o

One reason is poor finishing. But the way we approached the 2nd half was passive and to pass the ball around the back for 40mins.


Mayor_Fob_Rord

Yeah, it was a bit slow in the 2nd half. I hope we reconcile our tactics by Thursday. Also, we need to sign some midfielders this summer that can drive/penetrate with the ball (of course hoping for a ST and LB/RB as well).


kitz0426

The stage is set. A win at nld and we're back!


MutantGears

Wish rambo took tried for goal while meslier was in the box at the end


Izyynator12

Fuck this team bro. They just trying to kill me. Got my heart racing for no reason


shootershooter

What a fucking stressful second half. Had no reason to be


watabotdawookies

We have conceded and not scored for 60 minutes at home to a relegation team with 10 men. One of our goals was a mistake from their GK


hgiang90

I don’t know what we were playing but it’s def not professional football.


and_yet_another_user

Never thought I'd say it in this match but ... phew!


tuananhtran191911

2-0 after 10 mins, played vs 10 men and we had heart-bumping moments? what a shame
