I couldn’t and therefore didn’t watch the match. Judging by the reactions on Twitter tonight I’m glad there was no decent live stream to watch the massacre of Arsenal by a rampant Monaco. I remember everyone rejoicing at the fact we’d drawn Monaco in the quarter finals. There certainly won’t be cause for any celebration after tonight’s game will there?
From what I’ve seen on my Twitter feed it looks like Alexis had a good, albeit unfruitful, game. The Ox came to our potential rescue during injury time only to have that tiny piece of a comfort zone taken away immediately afterwards. Would anyone care to enlighten me on the performances of Oliver Giroud and Santi Cazorla who’ve played so well recently? So at the end of the first leg Arsenal finish with a need to score three goals in the next round and to keep a clean sheet. Maybe tonight’s performance will be the wake-up call Arsenal need to finish the job properly in the away leg in Monaco. Here’s how the fans are reacting to the game:

Easily our worst performance of the season. Without doubt. #AFCvMON

Shambles. Arsenal terrible, Monaco very good, but when you get it back to 1-2 in injury time, just take it. Being caught for 3rd appalling.

Final score; Arsenal 1 – Monaco 3. One of the worst Arsenal performances I’ve ever seen… and I’ve seen a lot! #AFC

Full time: Arsenal 1-3 Monaco. Awful performance. We looked completely devoid of a game plan tonight. Embarrassing.
