When i said Özil shouldnt play, people disliked my comment.
Red card in the denying obvious goal scoring opportunity situation needs to go. Ruins WAY too many games. A black mark on the sport.

Bayern were still dominant before Szczesny was sent off. I always kept a check on things & they had 68.5% possession before the red card; against a team who everyone deems a "possession" based side. Granted, Arsenal dominated the opening 5 minutes, but after Ozil's penalty miss, Bayern steamrolled Arsenal.
Guardiola is ruining Bayern style!
Guardiola was never a good coach!
I'm a barca fan, but I have to admit Guardiola style is a bit dirty!
Mes que un club
i told you to not start wilshire. but you no listen. see what happen ! we beat bayern without him, we beat dortmund without him. we beat liverpool without him. we cant win against united because you always play him. you cost us mr. wenger :)
Will Philipp Lahm play in midfield for
Germany in the World Cup? After seeing him
shine in that second half - creating both
goals - he seems a bit of a waste at full-back.
Arsenal and Man City - both at home,
both get a red card, both give a penalty
away, both conceded in last two minutes,
both lose 0-2, both are out. Nice symmetry
You can talk about them dominating possession all you like but arsenal had more possession up until szczesny was sent off, it was like 60/40. Tbf I think Arsenal were the better side at the start but yea, as soon as the keeper is sent off the game is over. Oh well, I don't support either team anyway lol.
Bayern Munich made 863 passes in 90
minutes. That's a pass every 6.25 seconds.
Imagine trying to chase that lot down.
Mathieu Flamini and Jack Wilshere will be
seeing Bayern passes in their sleep tonight.
Ozil wanted to be the boss at madrid , his habits and indiscipline cost him lot of bad repute. He used to go to germany and some european countries to bang his gfs. Bloody sex-addict he is. He couldnt be the boss at madrid and club like madrid cant allow such player with detoriarating habits so the transfer.
Ozil thought he would be the only boss amongst average players at emirates but he forgot there are no world class players to uplift his game. He took an arrow to the knee
Ozil benefited from Ronaldo's runs..,
Lahm should be higher rated for me. 99% passing, 4 key passes and 2 assists. That ball to Muller was brilliant.
I can't say anything, Arsenal play really very well in spirit tonight.
Carzola should take the penalty chance, not Ozil at all.
Wenger 'experiment' is over. Wenger always like to do experiment.
Sanogo good show tonight.
Roben 'fly' in front the door, he knows Szczesny will come and try to stop the ball.
Cmon its just not ozil , arsenal as a whole choked . Ozil is the only shining diamond in your average bunch
bayern can win only with red card. özil worst player of the world.
Frustrating to watch :( even I think this is the 1st time Guardiola won a match at the Emirates Stadium as a coach. Agree with people who said Ozil usually chokes in big events but it not the only one to blame for the lackluster perfomance.
Kroos 172 touches dayum!
Kroos like a Boss
My God Toni Kroos <3
Definetely deserve 10/10 if you ask me
Wenger made a mistake when he try sanogo in attack , and even bigger mistake to stick ozil for the whole 90 minutes and have rosicky in the bench
I meant penalties lessons : \
OZIL is just like a marshmallow!...playing on the pitch
@Skrong Silva, Mata and even Hazard who isn't even primarily a playmaker are much better at playmaking than the overrated Ozil.
Ozil is overrated, thanks for paying half of Bale's price
Ozil is very disappointing, not even the best playmaker in the Prem tbh. David Silva was brilliant yesterday, I'm pretty sure he's the best.
Mandzukic only has 9 touches, wow. He's been awful
Ozil is weak and overrated. Playing alongside Cristiano made him look better than he actually was.
Ozil is shit. Overrated and weak
And Arsenal sold Uefalona a greengrocer aka song
Real Madrid sold Arsenal a lemon
The only chance Arsenal has is on the break...Gnabry is pretty quick, but im guessing Wenger is thinking now not to lose this instead of a risk move.
We must have the only German in history who cannot take a Penalty
Messi > Cristina
Ozil never shines in big games, we watched him for 3 seasons and he used to dissappear when he was needed the most. Being an attacking head it used to hurt us to a significant extent. And the reason he was good at berbaneu cuz he was surrounded by WC players all around , thats not the case at arsenal and his party-lover mask is slowly coming off bit by bit .
Alaba needs coaching from Cr7 , Ozil is a poor learner
good grief, 2 penalty misses. shows what nerves can do. Perhaps Sanogo has the omnipotence of youth on his side. Can Ozil clear his head? advantage Bayern. Most Arsenal can hope for is minimising the score line, to eave a mountain not too high on the return leg. Thanks Liverpool for injecting some steel, that game was like a vaccine
@MHoY. They need lessons from Rickie Lambert. He has scored 32 out of 32 for Southampton.
Both teams are so tensed up.see them losing penalties.
Those players need to take lessons from balotelli and totti !
Seriously Alaba ?!
2 missed... Havent seen worse penalties taken since United v Sunderland
Ozil never plays good in big matches.
A German missing a penalty... :O
Nice pen özil, overrated and now bayern is gonna dominate
Ozil missed the penalty. Wow.
of course the ox was going to play
Arsenal plays 4-1-4-1? Good desicion!
Poldi or Giroud can come as subs if Yaya is overwhelmed
He's also gonna be fir and probably inject pace, in tandem with the Ox. to make up for the missing Walcott
Or mayne a surprise element. Bayern will be going "who is he?"
I suspect Giroud is out of sorts due to his marital disharmony;that's up theier with a death as a source of stress. OMG where was the purchase of a striker in the last two windows? Hope Sanogo has some tricks up his sleeves.
Who is Sanogo?Uefa website doesn't have any information about him, only he is French, it'll be his debut
Gunners need an scorer urgently, why Podolsky or Bendtner are not in the lineup?. Also hope Ozil raises his level.
Андрей, ты и в правду думаешь что Арсенал выиграет? Ничья это предел мечтаний!
lORD IS NOT IN THE xviii
1-0 for Arsenal !
Sanogo??hehe~~hope he do well.

Arsenal will win if they capture the midfield, and start with ozil on the bench!
Arsenal will win if they start Bendtner
It would be fantastic if Arsenal get draw today!
I predict a 2-1 win for Arsenal...Ozil to score for gunners in second half :D
You are welcome
1-1 anyone? Arsenal to show some teeth.. COYG
Ozil was bought for 50 mil , not 42 , when you talk about european football consider euros as currency state , not the remote pound
The game will depend on Arsenal. Bayern is a machine and able to show the best of European football at any time. If Arsenal plays like at Anfield a few weeks ago they will get smashed like most Bundesliga teams. If Arsenal plays like in FA Cup or the start of the season a draw is possible.
I don't have the stats in front of me but I believe Arseanl have a better defensive strategy this season--they don't concede as easily... with that said, I still think Bayern will win with small margin. I don't think we'll see too many goals. Hopefully it'll be a quality game.
1-5 for bayern. Arsenal is a nub team. Ozil will play bad as always. And all other players are no top players. Arsenal have it difficult against liverpool and man utd. And wenger is a big jooe, saying arsenal is better then the past year. LOL! What about bayern wenger? They will eat you alive. Mertesacker? The slow turtle wont do shit tonight!
Both teams play a boring football!
I'm a barca fan, but I will rather watch Real Madrid play than any team in the world!
Mes que un club
1 - 3
I think bayern will win 3-1
Good luck for both teams
ARSENAL 1-0 ODD 5 PARA VENCER ARSENAL . EU APOSTO
DomKennedy remember that time when Liverpool won the premier league ?
Is Ozil worth 42 Million?
If thiago doesn't play tonight i'll go mad.
Remember that time Liverpool beat Arsenal 5-1?
Tonight we will see what Arsenal team is really made of. Hard game, maybe the hardest this season.
Ozil needs runners hopefully Chambo plays out wide again
I think to beat Bayern Munich, Arsene need to come up with something special! And do not get a red card in any case! If Arsenal can take the midfield and tie Bayern Munich there, then they will be close to success! This is a very difficult task!
I wonder what is the best option for the deep midfielder next to Flamini - Jack or Ox. I don't think Wenger will leave Wilshere on the bench, but Chamberlain is in such a great form. Podolski has to start!
My guess is Ox in place of Rosicky. Ox might even play in the pivot with Flamini but if Cazorla is on the other side, Arsenal will need some width, particularly as Ozil thrives working with such players.
Not a arsenal fan but will be giving my full support to the gunners tonight against the Germans!!!! 3-0 to the gunners
it is hard to choose arsenal win 2-1 guess
Arsenal 0-2 Bayern
We're going to need a whole lot of luck, be on the top of our game & hope Bayern to be off theirs if we're to stand a chance vs the Champions but this is football any thing can happen, but if being real I just we bow out respectfully. Come on you Gunners
This is in my opinion the great game of this week. Both are huge teams, with extensive experience in Champions League, this teams have crossed each other way several times before, with even stats in Arsenal ground. 1 victory 1 draw and 1 loss. The recent Arsenal form is not very good, the decend in Ozil performance has reflected the performance of Arsenal's team. B.Munich has normal, is the BIG favorite to win the title, again, so i guess they are also the Fav for this game, despite in theses match with "giants" there never are "favorites". If this game was 2/3 weeks ago i would say that Munich would have a hand full of trouble in Arsenal ground... but now...I dont see Munihc loosing this match! Im sure it will be a great football match,as both teams normaly do! GO FOOTBALL!
The fate of this game is in the hands of Rosicky and Cazorla. Hope Wenger rests ozil.
Arsenal will lose unless Ozil returns to form. If Ozil is at his best anything can happen in this game.
Talk4u you clearly hate Arsenal, don't know why you even bother
Normally Bayern can win easily this game,but normally. H2h is suspecious imo.
Rafinha - Boateng - Dante - Alaba
Robben - Thiago - Kroos - Götze
arsenal is very bad at the moment, ozil will play bad again as always. arsenal must concentrate on fa cup and competition. bayern will win this match easy. arsenal had it difficult against liverpool and man utd both at home. bayern is the highest level you can get at the moment. and arsenal isnt ready for that.
I think Thiago and Gotze will start
it is up to wenger. if he start wilshere over poldi, the chance to win is nearly ZERO :(
Podolski - Ozil - OX
Rosicky - Arteta
Sorry Arsenal , 3-0 for Bayern
COYG, play podolski and the ox, give it a go!
Repeat scoreline of last year, 3-1 Bayern!
The only chance now for Arsenal, after the Man u defensive sleep walk, is to hope that Bayern fall into complacency and are surprised. But I don't think that this steamroller of efficiency will do that. Arsenal at least get to focus on the FA cup and premier league, which Wenger all but admitted is the priority
Bayern must have been rubbing their hands with glee after the Anfield disaster. Come at arsenal hard and they collapse like so many flimsy cards. On the other hand, if arsenal can man up against Man U, get focused, determined, then they might do what they did against Borrusia. Interesting times. Let's see just how much of a work in progress this arsenal team are. Just hope Ozil decides to enter the building this time
