Everyone made the same joke as Arsenal crashed out of the Champions League

Paul Moore

This exit tends to happen.

Well, at least Arsenal TV will be interesting.

The Gunners have exited the Champions League at an all too familiar stage, but the manner of this defeat was certainly different when compared to previous seasons.

In his pre-match programme notes, Arsene Wenger called on his players to play for pride. It didn’t happen. Christ, it didn’t happen.

Let’s be honest, the result in Germany meant that the tie was finished before a ball was even kicked at the Emirates, but goals from Lewandowski, Robben, Costa and a brace from Vidal emphatically cancelled out Theo Walcott’s opener.

Bayern were good, Arsenal were abject.

These things tend to happen.

And then it happened. Gallows humour at its best.

Even Bayern Munich got in on the act.
