    The real standout tie of the Europa League last 16, two of the biggest clubs left in the competition who have a combined seven European Cups to their names.

    One team is on high, other is in the lowest pit.

    Everybody sees us as wounded animal and wants to finish us for good.

    Gattuso is in for the kill. 584 minutes and counting when they conceded a goal last time.

    Conclusion: Ave Maria.

    Oh FFS are we lining up with Danny the Donkey up front?

    It's either him or Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh and I've heard our performances have been so depressing, he's committed suicide.

    Come on man! If it was Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid and you had said the two teams have won a combined seventeen European Cups or if it was Liverpool vs Manchester United and you had said the teams have won a combined of eight European Cups that would make sense but this statement above is laughable.

    All of those “combined” European Cups were won by Milan. Arsenal have never won it. It is a sad fact that our European trophy cabinet is embarrassing for a club of our size and yet Arsenal fans and users here turn up their noses on the UEFA Cup/Europa League as if Arsenal are a mighty European super club!

    Will Lacazette be back for the second leg?

    If Wenger had given Nketiah more minutes, especially in the last round when he knew Laca would be out for this round too, then we may have had an alternative. Personally I would play with Ramsey Özil Mkhi front 3 and forget about a striker. That has to be more effective than wasting a position on Welbeck.

    Welbeck couldn't do **** all against Ostersunds.

    I'd stick Nketiah upfront for this one. This could be his Rashford moment similar to when Utd gave Rashford a chance in the Europa League.

    Young players usually show no fear too.

    Wenger is too much of a p*ssy to try it.
     
  14. Mark Tobias

    Mark Tobias Mmhmm yes, I agree

    We'll be out before then anyway. Or he will come back and we'll be an offside goal away from going through.

    If i wanted to get anything out of this game I’d play 4-1-4-1 with Özil up front and Elneny holding. I want us to get walloped though so hope he starts Welbeck and Iwobi.

    Think if you knew AG a little better you'd have spotted that pointing this out was exactly his intention....

    ^ Sadly this. That’s our best possible lineup but with no Lacazette and PEA, Arsenal should definitely play Eddie as the CF. Welbeck cannot be trusted in such an important game.

    8 losses this year and the most important game coming up.

    Will Wenger change anything? Doubt it.
