    He's not awful, but Arsenal really need to throw money at Oblak/Alisson and a CB this summer.

    Edit: they really should have just kept Szczesny though.

    They need to throw money at about 7 of their starting 11 and it doesn't sound like they are being given much to throw.

    Yeah but that's not going to happen. Bringing in the right GK and CB this summer would give them a shot at top 4 next year, and then you try to build from there. They aren't going to turn around and win the title next year.

    I can just imagine Oblak leaving champions league football for Arsenal. Makes perfect sense.

    Of all the people to leave unmarked on a corner, they leave Costa. Arsenal very lucky this isn't 2 for Atletico.

    I didn't say it was likely, but give it a go. Arsenal isn't out of the CL just yet.

    Trust the process.

    OM with the better chances but Salzburg opens the scoring. Anything can happen now, but OM need to stop missing their chances.

    Feel gutted for him. He already had recurring achilles issues, and it could be the end of his Arsenal career.

    Had to happen. Since the first goal, OM is shaking and Salzburg was pushing hard (finally).

    Costa is absolutely destroying Arsenal's defenders today.

    OM are ****ting in their pants. Just because they couldn't bury their chances.

    Arsenal is generally frustrating with how they'll have four players breaking up the field and then just stop outside the 16-yard box and wait for the other team's defenders to get back, but come on, this is Atletico, why do they want go up against nine players in the box?

    They did it in the first leg while a man up too. Watching Lacazette try to beat Godin and Gimenez to a header all day.

    Obvious penalty not called in favor of OM. But Salzburg had an obvious one not called in the first leg so....

    Well there goes the dream scenario of Spurs finishing 4th in the league but not making the CL.

    Quite a few cynical butchers on that RB team.

    After failing to qualify for the CL, possibly finishing 7th in the league, and only 50M for transfers next year, I look forward to seeing which League One assistant coach they'll be able to attract to succeed Wenger.

    If Atletico win the tournament but finish 2nd and automatically qualify for UCL group stage then who gets their UEL spot?
