We’ve known this day was coming for two weeks now, and here it is - the day Arsenal exit the Champions League. Again. To Bayern Munich. Again. At the Round of 16. Again.
I know I’m supposed to be optimistic; I know I’m supposed to make you feel like there’s a chance. But Arsenal are a mess right now, and even if they weren’t 5-1 down, this would be, to be charitable, an inopportune time to face Bayern.
So, here’s a game thread. Have at it. I would ask that you remember that we’re all Arsenal fans; be nice to each other, don’t start calling people (players, commenters, whoever) names, and let’s just try to get through this with our dignity intact and move on to Lincoln at the weekend, shall we?
