    Scrawpy for Arsenal, undeserved point.

    Is he good enough to manage two clubs at the same time?

    Compared to the jobs being done by Solskjaer and Arteta? Probably.

    Played well, lucky Arsenal. Good performances all round. Best game for ages by Ward. Pepe's dive :fail:

    tbf I remember people mocking Klopp for taking his players to celebrate a 2-2 comeback draw at home to West Brom.

    Last minute goals to salvage something aren't to be scoffed at.

    Arteta saying it was the minimum they deserved. Deluded.

    Draw arguably fair given Tierney's chance but no way they deserved more. He's lucky Zaha wasn't fit.

    That was within 2 months of his appointment so what, his 10th, 15th match?

    That was Arteta’s 95th match in charge of Arsenal.

    Surely a two game ban for his dive, it was pathetic.

    Wish we’d won just so the media would stop saying ‘wILl pALacE EveR w1n WiThOUt ZaHA’.

    Klopp was building up character in his early days at Liverpool, Arteta should be doing better than scraping late home draws against teams like Palace after a couple of years. Emery before him was booed after salvaging the same result in the same way against Southampton at the end of his tenure

    Some fans have big club mentality. I have no idea why some moan about celebrating a late goal against inferior opposition.

    Agree, a last minute goal that snatches a win or even a point from the jaws of defeat should always be celebrated like the best thing since sliced bread - it's one of the unwritten rules of footy.

    Disagree. Did Fergie's teams celebrate late equalisers against inferior opposition, especially at OT, or did they grab the ball and sprint back to the centre to see if they can salvage one more attack and get a winner?

    It said a lot about the Arsenal last night, and why they'll never be one of the top-end PL clubs the way they're going, the mentality is shit. It was very cringe.

    I've got no problem with their celebrations. If anything I found it funny as it just emphasised how much the gap has closed between the two clubs.

    I was at Highbury for the 'Valentines Day Massacre' in 2005 where they absolutely destroyed us with the likes of Henry, Vieira and Pires. Never thought I'd see the day where we could realistically finish above them, but I don't think it's far off now.

    I was referring to the players last night regarding the celebrtions. It's the same a few seasons ago when we got back to 3-3 against Bournemouth and Giroud was doing that stupid celebration. Get the ****ing ball and go for another!

    We're 8 games in and the performances have not been good enough. Barring a 30 minute spell against Spurs (where we completely bucked what's been a 10+ year trend of awful counter attacking with two decent counters), it's been a very confusing aimless brand of football. I don't know what we're trying to do. That's not a good look for Arteta after nearly two years in the job. Then look at his opponent last night. Vieira has transformed how a club plays football in three ****ing months!!!

    It's boring, uneventful and lackadasical football. And it MUST get better.

    Also if Vieira carries on this trajectory with Palace, the Arsenal job won't be too far away for him. Especially with a billionaire he chipped in with still lingering around the club.
