    :laugh:

    If Keane was in the United dressing room these days, even in a coaching position, those players would leave the locker room in tears every time.

    I think that's a classic case of being neither a penalty or a dive.

    Good calls, refs have been starting to grow some balls.

    That shot is the flash of brilliance that you see from Xhaka occasionally. Those and some balls he pings.

    Ultimately, bad start to the half, good finish. Need to score obviously. A draw would be another poor result.

    Robbed of 2 Stonewall penalties, the shirt pull on Sokratis was a clear pen, as was the foul on Saka.

    Sokratis may have got a benefit if he doesn't act like a sniper in the stands had shot him. He felt the shirt pull and gave up on trying to get the ball despite it still hitting him right in the chest.

    Always some comments aging well I can see. (I realize Arsenal should still win)

    Admittedly, expectations shouldn't be the same for Arsenal vis-a-vis Liverpool this year.

    But yes, we have the chance to go solidly into third, one point behind City, so we really shouldn't be wasting this

    Oooh I don't know about that yellow on Guendouzi.

    Helluva knuckle on that hit by Fleck

    He actually called it a dive.

    He also gave a yellow for Kolasinac for the challenge from behind just before that.

    Ah, I misunderstood. They must have gotten the ball because advantage hadn't played out then

    Threatening moves, hopefully with Laca added in we will be able to grab at least one here!

    Amazing how much more threatening Laca makes this team. We'd been looking like the better side but not nearly this dangerous. Still need the final ball.

    Decent FK by Pepe. A little more pace and that's a goal. And another good look from him. Eventually one will go in

    He's given them a physicality in the box that other players don't have. He can actually play with his back to goal which makes Sheffield defend a lot different.

    Stupid yellow card by the keeper this early. I mean, it's one thing to waste time but you're never getting away with that. And now you've lost all leeway

    Even with the yellow to Henderson there's still gonna be some reaaally long goal kicks and restarts in the last 15 minutes.

    I actually am a fan of the subs that Emery has made.

    The subs look good because Emery started the wrong players.

    Well, the subs look good because putting in more attackers when you're down to Sheffield United is obvious.

    The only real decision was if you were going to take off Pepe or Saka.

    I mean I guess you could take off a defender and just go all out in hope, but that's usually not a great strategy in a league match.

    Mesut Özil would be a better option than Ceballos, Ceballos just processes the game way too slowly and simply isn’t creative enough.

    Hard to sub Ozil on when he isn't in the matchday squad

    That should either be an arsenal throw-in or a foul. Regardless, looks like we're dropping at least two points at this point. Shocking result that somehow isn't shocking
