Another tough draw for a so called lucky Ole.
Yet won the FA cup last season!He deserves credit for making them a organized side who are hard to beat but their football is boring and dull to watch. He has the underdog mentality instilled in them and lowered their expectations big time.
I don't know why winning the FA cup is treated as if they have won the CL. Did you see them play agajnst city! Just park the bus and hope auba fires, that's nothing like liverpool side.Yet won the FA cup last season!
Don't think that's the underdog mentality.
It's not exactly pretty football but it's similar in style to Liverpool in a way, not in terms of pressing perhaps, but they don't mind knocking it long into the channels.
The expectations at Arsenal this season are a trophy and top four, that's a step up from recent seasons.
The ties have been placed a few days before Boxing day so going to be part of the hectic xmas schedule so not sure any team will have their strongest team out.Wow dream draw for Spurs.
Everton played the strongest team so will be very hard.
We need our best team too in order to win this one.
I think you're doing then a disservice, they defended deep and went long to by pass the press in the final, actually a masterclass tactical decision from Arteta, Pep weren't expecting that.I don't know why winning the FA cup is treated as if they have won the CL.

Yeah does have that feeling especially after Mourinho just dismissed the tournament the other day. Would imagine they're decent odds given Man. City are heavy favourites given their recent history in competition.It's their year to break the hoodoo.
A walkover in the first round, then sneaked a draw and beat Chelsea on pens.
Exactly. People don't take into schedule, when they talk about this. Everton has more breathing space without Europe duty, they would be more likely putting out stronger team, while with the bigger club, it's more a headache.The ties have been placed a few days before Boxing day so going to be part of the hectic xmas schedule so not sure any team will have their strongest team out.
Good,Very bad. If you ask me. Look at our schedule. Packed and riddled with tough league games, and CL group stage. Ancelotti in cup game is a bitch, and away to Everton almost tough fixture.
Easy to say, but there is a chance they got run into ground, and we would suffer in the second half of the season. It's about human body limit, not just mentality.Good,
The players should relish tough games, if they don't then they shouldn't be in the squad.
Actually that’s a good point. They need to challenge our treble to be considered as one of the all time greats. Good point!A trophies a trophy, I'd take the league cup, Liverpool should be going to win every trophy they can, otherwise they won't be heralded as the greatest ever, which is what they seem to think they are.
If Klopp is a genuine winner he will be gutted that they are out. A strong team tonight suggests he wanted to go through.
We need to start rotate the side smartly in the league. Give Van De beek games instead of Bruno.Easy to say, but there is a chance they got run into ground, and we would suffer in the second half of the season. It's about human body limit, not just mentality.
You mean when we bent over and got pumped with 5-6 goals every away game to Liverpool, City or Chelsea? I don't think that was fun for Arsenal fans.I know wenger in his latter stages was a shallow of a guy from his peak but arsenal were fun watching even then than what they produce now. This is dire football. It seems arteta has learned more from Moyes than Pep.
Yes but for some strange reason that won't stop some calling Ole a lucky manager.He has never been lucky with the draws. Got psg and barca and in FA cup beat arsenal away chelsea away only to get wolves away. Last year got chelsea away in league cup and today the CL draw.
