Self awareness problems glen?

I know about me, but why isn’t jibes about trophies, cup defeats, this “shadow”, somehow being the pride of NL or our years in Spursday Night football not considered an obsession.

It’s a two way street glen yet there seems to be judgment from that high horse.

All valid points that account for the majority of posters on both ends of the fence. Rarely do they partake to the level of obsession you do, with key touchpoints being Arsenal, Chelsea and Hawthorn.

No such self awareness problems here buddy. You’re in a league of your own with how serious you take this shit, as has been raised to you before. Classic stuff. Enjoyed this chat, thank you :)

Very much agreed. I think they’ll win it all, from an Arsenal perspective we’d need to hope to avoid a big gun like them as much as possible (ie, like Atletico last year where we eventually were knocked out).
Yeah, they are the team to beat.

If Sarri is still managing us it'd be quite the emotional match up(im sure UEFA would love this).

Only take Chelsea seriously really. I seriously detest and hate them :D

The rest is all just a bit of fun, and I’ve said it to you before that the games against the Hawks are some of the best around. Never a dull game win-lose-draw.

Definitely, there’s a great angle there with Sarri. Having always been a bit cynical about some of the European draws, it wouldn’t surprise me if Chelsea meet Napoli in the semi.

The bloke so obsessed with what occurs in north London despite living approx 17,000kms away. Obsessed with props Arsenal use in training, what the fans say on Twitter, the official attendance Arsenal announces despite the empty seats at the Emirates.
What was the crowd against the tractor boys?

Still some very good teams in the mix Inter and Napoli are going to be the main ones to watch along with Arsenal. It's going to be an interesting draw for the quarter finals.

I shit you all not but I actually had a WTF moment to seeing Ozil on the pitch in the 30th minute. I genuinely thought he wasn’t playing.

Spare a thought for Arsenal who played short all night. First 40 minutes they played with 10 men, minus Ozil, and after Sokratis was sent off, they were down to 9 men. At least Ramsay came on for Ozil for the last 20 but they were still only playing with 10 men. It’s not easy beating the 10th best team in France under those circumstances.
