Ian Wright delivers emphatic Twitter verdict on Arsenal display v Bayern Munich
By Matt Farr
Club legend Ian Wright was left raging on Twitter at Arsenal’s shambolic performance during their 5-1 defeat to Bayern Munich on Wednesday.
Arjen Robben, Robert Lewandowski, Thiago Alcantara (twice) and Thomas Muller were all on the scoresheet for the home side, as Arsenal once again saw their Champions League qualification hopes left in tatters in the Round of 16.
The former Arsenal striker took to his personal Twitter account during the game to describe the performance as shambolic, in emphatic, and colourful, fashion.
We are a ******g shambles ????

Despite being vastly overrun by the home side, Arsenal went into the half-time break in a decent position. The score was level, and their away goal would give them a major boost heading into the second-leg tie at the Emirates in March.
However, after captain Laurent Koscielny was forced off with an injury just minutes after the restart, Arsenal capitulated, conceding four second-half goals.
