    Hi Mar.

    Well Monaco parked the proverbial bus and let us attack.

    We came so close.

    FA Cup and the battle for 2nd in the league next.

    Monaco debacle

    by Govinda Feb 26, 2015 07:42

    Hi Mar.

    I was at the game and what I saw was:
    1. The final ball. It just wasn't there. It just never worked for us.
    2. Giroud was well off his game. He has apologised for this, and must make amends in the next game, or run the risk of being labelled forever a big game failure.
    3. Mertesacker was also off his game. He ventured too far out and lost too many challenges.
    4. Ozil was ineffective. He kept passing sideways or backwards and kept the ball too long. This slowed our game and allowed Monaco to get back in position.

    In the end we just went mad and left our defences wide open for the third.

    I've got a few more games to go to before the end of the season, but if we don't beat Liverpool, I may just give 'A' Games a miss. I've seen us draw against Spurs and lose against Utd and Monaco this season so far. £66 a ticket for that isn't worth it.

    I hope the £40 per ticket I've paid for the West Ham game delivers good value.
