Arsenal 1-0 BATE Borisov - Debuchy 11'

What a thundercunt.

Glad it was Debuchy, he deserves some positives.

Just seeing his name is a trigger, I still can’t believe he made that many saves.

Like a new signing

When low driven shots fly off the boot like that, strange things happen in my pants

FC Astana become the first Kazakh team to get past the group stages in any European competition

FC Astana become the first Kazakh team to get past the group stages in any European competition

After their 1-0 win against Slavia Prague today they are positioned 2nd in group A. Congrats to them.

Being partly Kazakh, I've always wanted us to be represented well in Europe, because our national team is pretty shite, so I really hope they go far.

Imagine having to travel to Astana to play them next round especially if your team is from the west side of Europe.

rip coefficient points

Add in the plastic pitch and average of high -9C (in Feb.)!

Think they need to unban spacebars while they’re at it

Worse than a team that were in the Championship. Nice.

Yep, they beat Manchester City in the final, the same year they got relegated to Championship.

Woah woah woah, Wigan were in the Europa league? FA cup qualification I take it?

Top of League One.

Something good happened this half of the season afterall!.

Let's get a giant opponent in the next round and sign one or two good players in januar so we can prepare for next season.

Congrats!!

Sheriff Tiraspol was so close!

Ooh yeah!! Picking Arsenal or Atletico Madrid this monday would be an awesome christmas present!

Wow. From outsider to 1st! Totally incredible and imho deserved. Now, just wait for the next match!

I'm sure those outside Italy might be slightly shocked. Those of us who follow and watch Serie A know this squad has talent- I'm glad they are getting some deserved attention.

Deservedly so. Things might have been different if we'd sacked Koeman earlier. But hey, that is football.

Koeman is notorious for saying “but okay, that’s football”

The kids are alright

Thankfully we'll be playing the first team on Sunday

We'd have to still be standing in order to bow. Its more like we gave a thumbs up face down on the floor.

First away win in 10 months, decent run out for our youth, Lookman looking good, shame it means fuck all. Onwards to the derby blues (ffs).

Don't let the fact that Messi bottled a 4-1 lead distract you from PSG bottling a 4-0 lead.

Damage Control

in b4 they both retire tomorrow and messi and ronaldo fans won't have stats to wank over when comparing them

Possibly the worst thing I've seen gilded

"Messi breathes 56 times per minute and ronaldo breathes on 45 so he's better and i'd definitely nom on his weiner"

It's amazing how Mbappe is in top ten and Kroos is 17th like what the fuck

It's a popularity contest, what were you expecting?

Also a best offensive player contest

He scored 2 goals vs Manchester City in round of 8, 3 goals vs Dortmund in quarters, 1 goal vs Juventus in semis.

He scored vs Bayern in the group stage and had a great match on the first leg.

He won the Ligue 1 vs PSG, scoring 12 goals in Ligue 1 between january and june.

It's totally deserved no matter his age. It would be Lewandowski or Suarez with the same record nobody would complain.
