Arsene on European exit  (AUDIO)

Arsenal are out of Europe after a 2-1 aggregate defeat against PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League. The Gunners drew 1-all at the Emirates Stadium, with PSV defender Alex scoring at both ends. It means another season without silverware for Arsene Wenger's side who've had a nightmare fortnight.

Gutted with the result last night but that kind of game has been the story of our season. In all honesty though, when a Manc that I work with asked how I thought we'd get on this season, I said that we were still a season too early to be included in anything major. Still doesn't stop you beleiving though does it? Ah well! What I did say though, is that if we can half the points gap between ourselves and whoever is top of the table, compared to the previous season, then that would be a sign of real progression. Time to get our heads down and finish the season on a high me thinks! As Roy Orbison once sang, 'today's teardrops are tomorrows rainbows'. Yep, he was probably out of his face at the time, but there we go!

Gutted. Yes flv, the bittersweet morning after - all we have is hope! Maybe it was asking a bit too much in just 1 or 2 years to both blood and integrate youngsters, then rebuild a team dedicated to good football AND win a trophy. When it's all said and done I would rather have the pain now and hope to reap the rewards later - I mean it's hard to imagine us going backward from here - it will onyl get better. So close (and it was close), but sometimes (like last night) so far!

Le Boss in his pre match interview stated that the team practised on offensive and defensive set pieces in preparation for PSV even though it was against our philosophy. Did he mean that we never do that in the training ground? If only we were able to score just 10% of our offensive set pieces and concede just 10% lesser from defensive's throughout the season, we would have gone very far

We came up against a player who turned in possibly the best defensive performance I've ever seen. And he's a Chelsea player. I think thats what hurts most. But hats off to him. I also think RVP would have made a difference last night. Overall, we have got cause for optimism, but at times like this, it's probably easier to wallow. Only think we have to aim at now is beating Chelski at the Grove. C'mon you Gunners!!
