    I just want to forget about tonight's game. On the bright side, we have another 90 minutes to look forward to next Thursday where we'll hopefully be more motivated and play on a proper pitch.

    We lost to Ostersunds 2-1 last season and we still got through to the semi-finals, so without the Atletico Madrid powerhouse we still have a very good chance to win the competition.

    Injuries:
    Sokratis
    Welbeck
    Holding
    Bellerin

    Suspensions:
    Lacazette

    We WILL come back and win--COYG!

    Obviously a must win, Özil has to play, even though I don’t think he has been brilliant this season we can’t have Guendouzi as our main creator. Go back to 4231, what is our strongest midfield duo now? Douzi has been our best performer recently, so not sure really. I’d go:

    Auba
    Suarez/Iwobi - Özil - Mkhi
    Xhaka - Torreira
    Kolasinac - Kosc - Sokratis - AMN
    Cech

    Still think we’ll go through comfortably. 4-1 win here.

    What about yours? Usually some negative rubbish about how bad the team is, followed by a prediction of a loss. Terrible stuff.

    We should go back to a back 4 and play Osei-Tutu if AMN can't be trusted for the RB role. Enough mucking about with the 3.

    BTW how empty is the Emirates going to be for a weekday kick-off at that time?

    Hopefully empty enough to worry Kroenke.

    KO would be 8 for this, wouldn't it?

    No, it had to be at 17:55 because Chelsea are playing at home at 8 and because they won the FA Cup, UEFA gave them priority. The original idea was to have this match on Wednesday at 17:00 until Arsenal supporters' groups complained to UEFA.

    Why can't they be the same time? It's not like it's Sp**s.
     
  18. say yes

    say yes To VAR

    Different times = more can be shown on tv = more money for UEFA

    They don't care if the time makes it impossible for match-going fans to attend.

    Have to miss the first half hour now as I'll be watching Eggheads. Disgrace.

    UEFA rules state that two teams can't play on the same night, so this was the compromise.
