Arsenal fans comments on Newcastle United and their fans, as well as 10 in a row
Arsenal fans came and saw pretty much what they expected.
To be honest, almost every Newcastle supporter experienced the same.
Newcastle have only won at Burnley and Huddersfield on their travels, whilst Arsenal have only lost to Manchester City at home.
It was never going to end well.
Most Arsenal fans were happy with pretty much everything about game, apart from the referee.
Although you do get the feeling that Arsenal fans still don’t appreciate the kind of players and football the watch week in week out. After making it 10 PL home wins in a row, one Arsenal fans declared: ‘Good win. Very predictable match and result. Yawn….’
Some sympathy from Arsenal fans for Newcastle supporters who had made the trip and very hard to dispute what they say below about the quality of the Newcastle display, or indeed Rafa’s tactics on the night.
A tough watch, especially when you come out of the match at 10pm on Monday night after watching that and just wishing you were back on Tyneside climbing into your bed…
Very predictable match and result.
‘For newcastle, i dont think a team this season has played like that against us. It was so negative, they never pressed us or even attempted to take us on.
I dont rate rafa as a top manager and think newcastle need to part company.’
‘Nice to see that we can actually control a game for the complete 90 mins.’
‘It was a decent all round performance, but nothing really special. The organisation side of it was impressive though.’
‘Unai getting the best out of Özil. Crazy considering what was going on 3 months ago.
He’s stopped making bonkers choices and plays the best players when possible. Fu..ing hallelujah.’
‘Good win we didnt gave them any chance full deserved.’
‘Professional performance. Loved at the end how we played the game and didn’t chase a third and risk losing a goal at the other end.
Emery is slowly getting his stamp on the team.’
‘Imagine how much of a fortress the Emirates would be if there was actually a good atmosphere.’
‘Wonder when Emery will start getting the recognition he deserves? So so impressive.’
‘Good win, total control.’
‘Never been threatened by Newcastle.
Another clean sheet.
I’m so happy.
What a season we’re having so far.’
‘Solid win against poor Newcastle. Earlyish goal was key. Our home performances seem to be stable.’
‘Not everyday you win a match 2-0 and think how sh.. the ref was. Gave handball for the goalkeepers hand hahahahah.’
‘Very happy with how we turned up. Usually after a break against a tough disciplined side we don’t win especially when chasing to bridge the gap. I can feel a mentality shift.’
‘Are people concerned with the absolutely shambolic refereeing last night by Anthony Taylor?
I’m convinced he was fixing the game in Newcastle’s favour, and that he was our main opponent on the night.
Of course, given Newcastle’s lack of an attempt to attack didn’t help him much.
People at the top need to question the referee. If not his integrity, then definitely his quality and temperament. But no such investigation will take place because the Premier League doesn’t allow freedom of speech against referees.
During the first half, the commentators were a bit confused as to why the first goal wasn’t given, but in the second one of them actually PRAISED Anthony Taylor for making the WRONG decision, almost as if someone had told them to do so.
Which begs the question – Will VAR truly help if the people at the very top are orchestrating this?
Last night had so many things wrong with it, 2 goals disallowed, a very clear handball (even if unintentional) obstructing play, kolasinac’s yellow card for the most peaceful form of dissent I have ever seen and so many other small decisions that really make you wonder the only way this man keeps his job is because he does the bidding of higher powers to fix matches in whatever ways he can.’
‘We weren’t amazing, but still Newcastle didn’t create a single chance. And we were quite efficient with our chances. Would love it if we could have performances like these away from home.’
‘Easy win. Never in doubt. Newcastle were just too poor to threaten us, albeit you never know when it is just 1-0 until 10 minutes to go.’
‘We made hard work of it and the ref was shocking but that was such a comfortable win. Imagine being a Newcastle fan who’d bothered making that trip.’
