I don’t think any of it is patronising, she has a great game and far better than what we are used to in the Premier League.

It’s quite sad that you chose to see it that way.

I'm pretty sure it's a sarcastic joke

How was Cengiz tonight? 

Had one insanely good touch but drifted other than that. Tried a free kick that was clearly too far out.

 

Still maintain this lad has about 3 months of bedding in.

What's all this patronising praise for the ref? Only mentioned as it was a woman. Sexism. 

Huh? I genuinely thought she let the game run, no stop start for minimal contact etc. Maybe you've mis-read the praise???

No only mentioned because she’s was very good and let the game flow nothing  to do with sexism

What do you guys think about the away leg? In the end our class shone through, but they were good in the first 20 minutes and will be more confident at home. Hopefully things are already wrapped up by then, because otherwise I could see the game being much harder than tonight.

Yea great win but the opponents were on Par with Blackpool.

 

Do not get carried away with that scoreline.

 

Positives barnes looked like C Ronaldo.

 

Fringe players got minutes.

 

Hopefully builds confidence for arsenal 

They are not a European giant but comparing them to Blackpool is ridiculous. They just drew to a team who just won at the Bernabeu. We will have bigger tests but they are no mugs and despite a shaky start, we controlled the game really well and put in a very solid performance

I agree with that statement. Tonight when he was on you could see he often times was standing in the wrong place and not quite on the same wavelength as the rest of his team. I also think he was a bit guilty of trying too hard, which is more than understandable. The player who was almost identical to that in his early days in the first team was Harvey Barnes.

 

I think he will come good in the end. Not sure he will be a true Mahrez replacement but I think that barring injury that we will probably buy him next summer outright.

No one going to mention that pass from under to castagne in the buildup to setting up that praet chance? Once he gets going and does things like that consistently he should be class for us.

Very classy

Yeah but if the ref was some balding portly Frenchman, he wouldn't be getting lavish or even faint praise. 

 

People are a bit like that with the Paralympics. Go over board on how good it is pretending the gold is as good as Jess Ennis's when It's actually a rubbish spectacle

 

For the record, I thought the ref was typically European - - decent but mildly eccentric

That suggests people don't praise male refs when they have a good game (especially in this age of some horrific ref performances). Which people do. So you're the one weirdly focusing on gender.

Absolutely. Players aren't robots they're individuals. Despite his time at Roma, like Soyuncu, he's from an entirely different cultural background and may perhaps find it a little harder than some to settle in. We also don't quite know how good his English is and it may take some time for him to fully understand what's expected from him. I think it will pay dividends to be very patient with him.

As a relative feat the gold is, in fact, as good as if not better than Jess Ennis'

 

Odd comment.

Wtf are you on about I’m the only one focusing  on gender . I’m was replying pointing out  people were  saying   the ref was very good not because she was female but because she was  good

People don’t understand sarcasm the ref had a good game.

 

 

Never got into top gear coasting at times , savage made out we were playing 70’s brazil 

 

5 pages after a 3-0 easy win shame on some of you

Is there a terrestrial Europa Highlights programme? 
Or at least not on a subscription service?

All separate highlights should be on YouTube relatively quickly. No studio analysis on those unfortunately.

She was the best Ref we have had in charge of our games in a very long time
