if we concede first, we will get hammered because they will kill us on the counter, no doubt about it. If kos isn't back by this and we start djourou and squallici in defence, i will not watch this game for my well being.



it'll either be a 2-2 if we score first or a 4-1 loss with we concede first.

Im not going to watch this game.

Enough is enough, I cant bear to be put through blunt forward play and then look so pourous at their first attack.

A hiding from Spuds is looking extremely likely.. which depresses me... Think I'll skip this one.

Hoping for a win. We've got a week's rest + home advantage. We need top 4 (with 3rd place not out of bounds), we must beat our rivals.

Anything other than a defeat is a plus point for us.

I've got a bad feeling we could really get tooled in this game, Spurs with Adebayor ran riot last weekend.

This is really going to hurt me. The first time in ages we are actually underdogs against the Spuds. They have a better sqaud, first 11 and tactics than us. Can see a 3 - 4 goal defeat with the way they attack and the way we defend.

Dont give a monkeys who plays, just hope they give a performance worthy of a ******* NLD.

It all depends on the midfield, sad to say Ramsey has to start on the bench, slows things down to much and we need pace in the middle as well as on the flanks. Good luck Arsenal, we're going to need it!

Don't worry Ferrari, The Jury doesn't take well to people being realistic.

Jury if you keep this relentless optimism up I'm going to start thinking you and David Smith are related.

I'm surprised you don't reckon we're still in with a shout for the title. :)

We're still in with a shout in the CL as well remember.
We have just given AC Milan a 4 goal lead to make it more interesting that's all :wink:

Going to be a hostile crowd win or lose.

We're seriously going to be thrashed. It's so depressing.

Fair play to them though. They show more ambition on and off the pitch than we do. This has been coming for a few years now.

I think our recent plight would be somewhat easier to stomach if Spurs weren't doing so well. Never could've imagined they would finish above us in the Wenger era.

This is going to be just about as high stakes as the Carling Cup Final was last year.

Win - the fans, the players, the manager and the club get a huge morale boost and further traction in the desperate quest for fourth place and Champions League football. It wont fix the season, but it'd stem the tide of depression and anger that is festering all around Ashburton Grove.

Lose - possibly the loudest and most aggressive booing the Emirates will have ever seen (if there's anyone left in the stadium at the final whistle), the morale of the players will be rock bottom, full on collapse will be almost complete as hopes of Champions League football slip further from our grasp and the realisation that there will be no St. Totteringham's day this year will add to our misery.

High stakes for the boss that loves to gamble.

I absolutely and completely hope we win, but there's not a whole lot of confidence there.

Few games have filled me with such excitement and dread of late.

It's a chance to get one back or continue with the self-destruct mode.

Most important game since the one away at Udinese.

Can't stand the sight of them winning at our ground, although I've only witnessed it once in all my years.
I'll definitely break down if we lose this.

2-1 to the Arsenal

truth_hurts (Forum Member) on February 18th, 2012, 10:36 pm

Spurs are going to take the game to us :( we should try and attack so that means that I would like:-

------------------------Szczsney------------------------
--Sagna----------Koscielny---Vermealen-----------Gibbs--
------------------Song----Arteta/Rambo------------------
--Chamberlain---------------------------------Gervinho--
------------------------Arshavin------------------------
--------------------------RVP----------------------------

we will probaly see Theo, Ramsey and/or Rosicky so i predict a 3-1 loss.

Kroket (Trusted Member) on February 19th, 2012, 12:10 am

I'm expecting either a hard fought draw or a loss here. The players will be dreading this game and the moment Spurs start to threaten the fans will get on their backs, but we have a couple of players out there who will raise their game regardless. Big improvement needed from everyone but especially from Sagna, Song, Van Persie and Ox/Gerv/Theo.

Also, I expect Sagna to dominate Bale after which the latter will start roaming around and ends up destroying our defense anyways. Or at least that's what usually happens, you'd hope we've now learned from that but we're Arsenal and love making the same mistakes over and over again.

Not looking forward to this at all.
