“Arsenal should have seen off AS Monaco”, that was what Charlie Nicholas said to the Skysports. The gunners gained a victory by 2-0 at the Stade Louis II in which the away side scored through Olivier Giroud and the substitute palyer, Aaron Ramsey. However, it went out that the goals after Monaco scooped a win in the first leg, by a 3-1 gap, at the Emirates Stadium had drowned the Gunners deeply. This made all the efforts rather useless in as much as the away side could not get the through to the next round.
In spite of the attacking performance shown by the away team on Tuesday night, Arsene Wenger’s men could not find the third goal, which was desperately expected to gain the ticket to the next round in the Champions League games for a fifth straight year. Nicholas said to Soccer Special that we did the same thing every year. He said that we had done it against much better club than this. The Gunners once managed to dump out Bayern Munich this season and they have done it against Barca. Just name it and you realize that the Gunners have all the potential to get it done. Yet, that didn’t happen during the math against AS Monaco.
The last match was entirely cruel one. This was a game that Nicholes has been waiting for a long time to watch in Europe. They would be scratching their head in the morning, wondering how the team got dumped out against Monaco. Lots of people knew that Monaco were on the ropes already. After the first ten minutes they seemed that the Gunners would outclass the home team. Yet that didn’t happen. Arsenal have been under criticism for not showing the performance in the previous bigger games in Europe and domestic games over the years this season.
Yet they was at first believed to outstage Monaco as the team brought good momentum from recent wins in the Premier League and FA Cup. At times, it seemed that dramatic comeback was about to turn up. Nicholas could not blame the Gunners side. He said that MesutOzil’s performance was his best in the squad after a fine show he posed I midfield. Nicholas has bene very critical of a lot of players al the time because he thinks that it has been justified yet that night he though that MesutOzil was incredible.
