    I thought it was about time to make a topic about it.


    How optimistic are we gooners? do we have a chance with our weakened squad? can our players do it over two legs? do we need to play two blinders of a game? specially at the back?

    I have faith that we can do it, but on the other hand I am very negative about it what do you expect? I will sign for a 0-0 draw and beat them at home 2-1.

    Formation well? we cant change something isnt it?.


    Diaby could play a very important role for me with his strenght, and with Adebayor up top they could give Man Utd trouble at the back?
    Or should we choose for Nasri behind Ade?...

    I don't feel so good about this game anymore.

    a score draw would be good, even a goalless draw would be decent. Is djourou gonna be back for this game? because I don't think I can stand watching Silvestre trying to keep rooney quiet.

    Not feeling confident without Andrey.

    But if we get a draw out of this, I will be very happy

    I don't really fancy us in this tie I think we aren't strong enough at the back and United will overun us, not to mention I think Fergie is better tactically then Wenger.

    It is a game of football though so anything can happen I don't believe we can't get a result but I feel we need to perform exceptionally and quite a few players will need to be inspired but if they are a bit poor or we play better who knows.

    We are in the champions league Semi so lets not be to timid and see what happens.

    We'll lose this but win at home, I think. So it'll all come down to away goals.

    Biggest match in years, this.

    No one fancies us in this tie, so there is a chance for a surprise.

    Biggest game of the past 4 years.

    Lets really see what these players are about.

    Or the 4-2 V Wigan that pinched our usual 4th placed CL spot back from Spuds on the last game.

    I feel very confident about this. People forget to factor in how utter **** Sp**s are. United lost huge to Liverpool just a few weeks ago and even though they saved face today their defence let in two embarrassing goals.

    We'll either win this game with 2-1 or draw 2-2 and then we'll win the second leg at Emirates. My ideal lineup, injuries and possible comebacks considered, would be:

    Sagna - Touré - Djourou - Gibbs
    Walcott - Song - Fabregas - Nasri
    Eduardo - Adebayor

    I really want to start with two strikers for this game. Every single goal United have conceded this season has been the result of offensive pressure against their defence. Their wingers are lazy at tracking back and their fullbacks are no match defensively. They're just waiting on being found out.

    After viewing United maul Sp**s today, Wenger will abandon any faint interest he had in the 4 4 2. He will field five midfielders, keeping both Eduardo and Bendtner on the bench.

    These five midfielders will be Messrs Walcott, Denilson, Song, Fabregas and Nasri.

    Agreed - AW will go into his shell regarding the midfield & will again play Cesc in the hole. :roll:
  17. Klaus Daimler

    I honestly prefer five midfielders though if the only other alternative is Bendtner in his current form.
  18. Anzac

    I'd prefer Cesc to play as a CM NOT AMC for a start.
    And I'd have prefered to have had Vela getting some game time of late as a wild card option if AW were to decide to attack them. As it is he's really been limiting his options to an attack of Ade/RVP/Nik, with Nasri/Theo on the flank & Cesc in the hole.
