    Plastic pitch and guaranteed sub zero temperatures, could easily be -25C up there in February with a bit of bad luck. Not going to be fun....

    I watched them play Athletic Bilbao and it looked like Östersund was the La liga giants and Bilbao the blueberry team.

    From Sweden and been following Östersund a little bit in the recent years. As some others already said they are playing quite nice flowing football and they really impressed in the group stage and also in the qualifications against Galatasaray.

    Some players to be a little bit aware of:

    Saman Ghoddos, forward of the year in allsvenskan and have scored some goals in the group stage. probably their best player. quick, skillfull..

    Ken Sema, midfielder who really impressed this season and have been in the sweden squad a few times

    Alhaji Gero, a forward who earlier played for my home town club. Uneven but when he is playing good he is powerful, strong and shoots well..

    A little bit of Östersund scouting...

    LoL Ronald Mukiibi a Östersund defender is really happy to be facing Arsenal he wants to have a talk with Wenger about his tactics and teamselections and he is not happy with him :p

    He is a fan of Arsenal

    Brwa Nouri played several years in my local team, really good guy and a talented footballer
    imagine as a kurd to get a penalty vs Galatasaray and nailing it!


    quite skilled, could have been more of a european pro but had some issues of the pitch

    Even in this ****fest of a state we should be steamrolling 90% of these teams. "Should" never really correlates to actual performances though.

    Would love us to take the EL down. It's an FA-level trophy, IMO, these days.

    This team were formed after Wenger took charge at Arsenal.. is that true? Incredible if so.

    Looks like it'll be a couple more fixtures at least for our second string. Good news for the likes of Welbeck, Giroud and Walcott.

    Despite the challenge of the cold weather, this should be an easy tie for us. Key is to get a decent result in Sweden before heading back to the Emirates. Don't want to see another performance like the ones against Monaco and Milan.

    As @YeahBee mentioned one of their players, Ronald Mukiibi, is a life long Arsenal fan. Sounds like an A-Mer given the quotes in the interview below :lol: Will be rooting for him while he fulfills his dreams of playing at the Emirates against AFC.
