    Romero will get a red, that's all I know. I hope it's in the 90th minute, and we're leading 3-0 at that point, but ...
    fudge, I can't bear it if we lose tomorrow. I want to see our lads play with their hearts on their sleeve tomorrow, no timid tapping around - just fudging smash them.

    Why would it?
    Instead of anti type of anti arsenal sentiment, we have a stand holding up plastic bags to spell out "live laugh love"

    I think we are better BUT there have been plenty of games where we failed to turn up and handed it to them on a plate. But is that just my rancid brain fighting me? I cannot recall.

    This. All I asked of them on saturday night, was to just give it their all and not a half-hearted display. Some of the 'bodies on the line" defending at Anfield was top drawer.
    More of that type of commitment please. I can always accept a defeat if you know the players have give it their best, and their best has not been good enough.

    This is the NLD, and as big a one as we have seen in recent seasons. Show the fans YOU know what it means to us all

    I think they could go 5 -3 -2, but that allows us to pressure Tavares and Soares plus pick on Xhaka. I don’t think they have the discipline to play that way for 90 minutes. I also don’t see this game without at least one red card.

    Xhaka has exceeded himself with regards to keeping his lid. He is a pressure cooker. I hope we target him. Odegaard is a great player. El Neny has done very well but has a ceiling. It is a case of how close to our own PEH you view him with regards to performance v ceiling. They have a good side but so do we. It will be a classic chess game before inevitably boiling up and probably over…

    He is a major concern, the cretin. He will either try and control it with cards from KO, in which case 10v10 is wholly possible, or he will wait until someone has been crippled before exploding into a series of one-way cards, all the while with his stupid ‘Pauline-League Of Gentlemen’ expression!


    (If he gives us a dodgy pen to win it in the 90th min, I shall be back here to apologise)

    I think Arsenals great run has to a large extent relied on luck - meeting Chelsea and United when they were in decline and Spammers who had a semi final in midweek. Add to that red cards and soft goals . While we have largely been unlucky - especially that cruel deflection at Anfield and Brightons late late goal. Plus of course that ridiculous postonement earlier in the season when they had a hugely depleted team and used Covid to cry off.

    By all that is fair and right in the world, we should win this one.

    We do however need to turn up.

    They will sit back, tackle hard and we will be frustrated.
    Don't see us winning this given the lack of creative options in the midfield. I think a bore draw will be the safe result that legoman will go for.

    They play very neat and fast little triangles. I Expect us to be chasing the ball a lot.

    Agreed. Think we could see a somewhat cautious approach from both teams at first. Arsenal will obviously take a draw. Us going behind would make things really difficult, so both teams making sure they don't make any mistakes or leave themselves exposed make sense.

    Could see us, or even them, try to go for the shock and awe start, but it's rarely been Conte's approach. Think we'll be fairly happy waiting for the right opportunities to break. Should they start pressing high at some point we should play with bravery on the ball though.

    Can definitely see this get heated almost regardless of how the game pans out. NLD, so much to play for, loads of frustration that could come out. Some cool heads will be needed.
