We need to top the Group, so, this is a must win game. Will Wenger get his tactics right? Will the team be fired up? I have to confess that the EL does not excite me one bit.

20,000 Koln fans storming the gates apparently fights with police in and outside ground. Stewards given up the security searches and worries about flares and bombs inside the stadium.

Glad I didn't go.

It's like we're away to Cologne but at home.
Anyway none of the fringe players want to play for the first team on their performances.
Usual crap.

But only until now :afcbanner: We dominated that game on the pitch if not off it and if we could learn to pass to a player wearing the same shirt we'd have been very comfortable much earlier. Some decent cameo performances in short bursts from Iwobi and of course Alexis (2nd half) but the whole defence makes me very nervous.

One thing that struck me from today's events; several thousand Germans marching through a city doesn't normally end that well! (Sorry GG, just joking!).

Invaded, but, not conquered! Koln supporters took over from Block 19 to the FE, in force, then quite a few of them dotted around the stadium. I felt like an away supporter in Block 4! No trouble as far as I could see. A couple of them even asked me to take their photo. I wish that we could have such fanatical support. Even after losing they continued to sing and support, while our support had a fire drill. I was home just after 1. Where was the police intelligence? Where was the police presence? A very poor performance by the Mets, and, AFC. If there was the slightest chance of such amazing support, I would like to see the response from the German police, and, the Koln stewards.
