Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I would have appreciated it the Hull fairytale didn't have a chapter titled "Emirates". Hull were organized, disciplined, and kept a rigid defensive shape. Sure. And they played a physical game. Granted. But Arsenal simply weren't good enough. Hull's first goal was special. But Arsenal's vulnerability to simple set pieces, time and time again, would be comical happening to someone else; but comedy is not the stuff of the top clubs in the world. It's not the stuff that wins the league either.

The time to fix it is right now.
