    It sort of nails home how far we have fallen that we are playing at 3:30 in the ****ing afternoon in a European game ffs.

    It depressing it's because the likes of these games are not allowed to be on at the same time as the CL, wouldn't want to tarnish the CL with this trash.

    I shan't get to watch this one, I fancy us to do better against them than last match, now we know what they're about.

    Given the choice I'd prefer to watch this game over the foxes, because we most likely park the bus v foxes a la Liverpool with the same consequence, playing too too deep with a total disconnect between our 2 attackers and 9 defenders a nice Sunday stroll on Saturday for them without getting out of 2nd gear.

    V Vittoria - 1 - 2 Martinelli and Pepe.

    ps- don't mess with my too too

    The CL anthem gave me chills last night. It's been a few years since I saw our players lining up to it. Jealous as ****.

    Bellerin is back fully fit now, why can't Emery now have Bellerin starting as the 1st choice rb instead of Chambers now? If he prefers Chambers over Bellerin in the PL games it just makes zero sense to me, he has never played our full strength team all year in one game yet. Bellerin is so much better then Chambers.

    Fair points. I missed Holding! He will hopefully start as he's looked awfully rusty. I'm all for taking care reintergrating players but Emery has dropped the ball on giving some a competitive 20 minutes here and there to speed up match fitness of so w players. Özil has been missed completely. Left in the boot for two months and then overplayed in ten days! Shocking stuff tbh. Guendouzi is undroppable and has been overplayed but hopefully Willock and co can do enough to see him enjoy the bench tonight.

    Özil isn't even in the travelling squad, hopefully this means he's being rested & back in the PL matches now. I don't know about Guendouzi, I like him, good player but I think he is being over played way too much, it seems he has played just about every single game this year. He's only young around 20, he needs to be rested every now & then.

    I hope we experiment and put Nelson at 10 if he’s fit.

    This while battle of wills with Özil has gotten way out of hand. So he doesn't play the way Emery wants? Does the way Emery wants to play include less shots than CP, Burnley and Wolves? At this point it seems clear that Emery's tactic is setting the team up to fail. It's about time he tried something different. Maybe a 5 man midfield, God knows we could use the reinforcement there.

    Hopefully we play the strongest team available.

    With the manager under pressure, them pushing us at home & the early Wednesday kickoff no need for rotation.

    No beef with that then.

    Another uncomfortable victory. This is almost a no-win, anything short of 0-3 will allow the debate over our decline to continue. End of the day 3 points probably wins the group.

    The debate will continue regardless.

    The only thing you can guarantee is discomfort. Even when we won 0-3 against Frankfurt, they had something like 20 shots on goal and our last couple of goals were when they were down to 10 men.

    He may sometimes get results but we are simply not geared to play with any sort of control under Emery.

    If Pepe doesn't play, that will be 1 start in the last 2 and a half weeks. What is Emery even trying to do?

    Too late, I'm here right now ;)

    Good ideia but as my seat at the stadium it's up on the south stand i don't know if he would see it.

    I'd stay in the office and do some work instead. Defo the more rewarding option.
