Tom Thumb

Hopefully we get a good lead early on,so The Jeff can come on around the 60 minute mark.

Crew

People said it before the game at WBA. Let’s focus on winning instead of glorifying Jeff. Enough with underestimating our opponents. Alexis to break the duck after a month or so and Jeff the god to come on around the 60th minute and hammer this shi*t team.

Oor Wullie

Yeah, you tell Tom Thumb exactly what you think and be principled, stick to what you were berating him for and….oh.

Paul

Crew – It’s “The Jeff”…;-)

Paul

Come on Arsene lets see a little bit of The Jeff!

Man Manny

Should do the job. What of Bayern’s starting 11? I just want to know.

Paul

Probably easier to look at their website than expecting someone t type it out on here! 😉

Alexy

The bayern team: Neuer, Rafinha, Boateng, Badstuber, Lahm, Vidal, Coman, Costa, Robben, Müller, Lewandowski. So it’s a strong lineup, should take all three points.

Eva

Neuer – Lewandowski, Robben, Costa, Rafinha, Boateng, Lahm (K), Vidal, Müller, Badstuber, Coman

They’re going full out. Lahm promised that to the BFG when they were both in the German TV studio after the Munich match. Standing next to each other, too, which is always a nice image.

TruthHurts

Hey there Carneiro, could you possibly sign for Arsenal and figure out a solution to our never ending injury problem?

Eva

Alas, wrong number.

Paul

Played…

Eyoba

Don’t worry pal, u can depend on Bayern. Its Arsenal I am worried about.

lone gooner

a bit surprised meterzacker is starting. …would really have preferred Gabriel

GunnerDareMACEDONIA

Me too he was awful against WBA, and I really expected gabriel to get run of games along side the boss we need speed more than anything for both CB especially now when coq is injured, Per will be more and more exposed, hope hi starts against norwich

Arsepedant

I hope we get the Swansea Campbell today and not the West Brom Campbell. We could do with a good big win to boost our confidence, but at this point I’ll take an ugly 1-0. Come on boys!

TruthHurts

Gabriel on the bench for a game like this… Wow. On recent form, our defence is shaky with Koscienly not in the right state of mind and Mertesacker looking out of his depth. I have a bad feeling Zagreb will hit us on the counter like the first game and thats that. We need every bit of pace we can get with our Coq out too…

GunnerDareMACEDONIA

No more experiments with Ospina, is it too late ? we will see.

Jamie

Well, plenty of cover for any defensive injuries…

Anonymous Kumquat

Really need the win tonight, for so many reasons! Would love to see Alexis back on the scoresheet too.

Recent results suggest tonight could be a bit of a close one, so I’m going to be safe and predict a 23-0 home win. COYG!!

Wozfe

That Dinamo line-up certainly doesn’t instill me with any fear.

ForeignGooner

I said that to myself before the first leg.

Arsene's Apologist

And I thought we had an injury problem…

SuperTom7

Really hope that we humiliate them, like 6-0. For some reason, I really started to hate that shit team.

cheekyjc

We’ve not got a lot of options from the bench have we!

Paul

No shit Sherlock! 🙂

Almunia

metersacker is a spent force, about time gabriel was given a chance to nail down that position

Paul

Come on Flam, do the pointy thing and organise in front of the defence…COYG!

hank1979

Hoping for a strong mature performance tonight. With the talent we have it should be all about attitude. Would like to see rambo getting an easy 30mins under his belt. Confident.

andi

In Wenger we trust, COYG….. 4 nil… Kos to get two, flam and Giroud the others.

Runkeball

No matter the injuries we have at the moment Zagreb are shit compared to us. We should be able to beat them comfortably even with our shittiest players.

Come on Arsenal!

BRANDON

I am freezing already hope it can cchange

Alexstratz

Campbell having a good game so far.

Canuck Gunner

Found a sports bar to watch the game. Now for a very long lunch “hour”. Want to see a big win (and a Chelsea loss shown on the adjacent tv screen).

Arsepedant

Were you at The Pint?

Canuck Gunner

Nope. Was at the Taphouse in downtown Seattle.

Arsepedant

Figured you were in my time zone. Wondered if it might have been Vancouver based on your moniker.

Canuck Gunner

Grew up in Vancouver, but now live in Victoria. Just spend a lot of time in Seattle for work (where I lived for 6 years before moving to Victoria).

Paul

That first half performance makes me proud!

BRANDON

Ozil on top today
