Let’s go lads, need the same intensity and verve we had against Villa! Here’s for 3 points, COYG 🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴🔴

Hopefully we don’t get 11 red cards.


Going to be tight I reckon , both teams look to be full strength given long term injuries except for Tierney in our case.

Usually use footybite but it seems to be down. Anyone got a decent streaming site?

Thank you so much! Good lad xxx


What’s the deal with Odegaard? Anyways let’s smash them!

Bleeding gums murphy

Very simple, he has been poor so far this season and doesn’t deserve to be in first 11. Let’s hope he improves.


By my count he’s been pushed around 3 different positions. One minutes he’s no 10 the next he’s an 8, the other he’s a left center mid. Not exactly easy to find any form like that.

He also had that stomach bug didn’t he? Could be a contributing factor to him not starting today


Yep….he needs to step up off the ball, not run round like a headless chicken. He’ll get there and competition for places is a good thing!! COYG!!!

Nainsley Aitland Miles

Possibly a hybrid 4-4-2 where Saka and ESR are more suited to the wide areas than Odegaard?


Or, on the flip, Laca has shown good form and helped the team kick on – no doubt odegaard will get 20-30 mins – fingers crossed he’ll make them count.


Don’t know that there’s much of a deal, I think it’s a ‘if it ain’t broke’ situation, laca deserves his place imo, odegaard hasn’t been brilliant when he’s played and laca’s intensity and drive has been so good to watch. 4-4-fuckin’-2!!


When Klopp selects Keita, Fabinho and Milner nobody asks what the big deal with Henderson is and he’s the captain. Nobody asks why Thiago is benched thrice. At Arsenal we are used to starters, immediate subs and who should be sold sadly

Brady’s bunch

That’s the team that most of us wanted to see today let’s hope we do the business 🙏


Can’t fault this line up based on form and injuries. But lokonga must have a hell of a game today in terms of precise passes in the final third. COYG!


5 London teams in QF draw and we get home draw to Sunderland!

Nainsley Aitland Miles

Totally forgot about the draw, thanks for posting that!

Uba Ng

Maybe our name on that trophy!


A way to go yet with the other teams left in it – including Liverpool!


Yes, but one of the remaining clubs is Sp*rs and we know they don’t win trophies, so our chances are improved already.

Thierry Bergkamp (non negotiable)

First game since everybody’s been available, that we’re expected to lose.
We need a big performance all around, like they did here last season


I’d love to hear more of the same comments as for recent wins – “Spuds/Villa/Leeds were really poor” against us; no credit for us, just keep winning.

Brady’s bunch

Nullifying vardy will be the key to winning so big day for white, sambi

Alex Nagy



More than happy with that, Come on you reds 😀 Please call him Benjamin though Blogs


We are wary of early kickoffs but let’s rip them a new one today!
In other news, we’ll be playing Sunderland at home in the Carabao Cup. COYG!


Saka on 100 appearances today. Incredible. COYG!!

Just read Blogs’ first comment of the day on the liveblog, seems like he has taken Ben White’s stomach bug. Talk about taking one for the team!
Get well soon Blogs.

Arsenal going for 4-0 today

Time after the goals has been torrid, and but for Ramsdale, we would have been ruing this game.

Just to be someone who said it here, Aaron Ramsdale is the MoTM

Alan Sunderland

What a start, fckn brilliant


ESR with our 2nd goal. Brilliant! 🤩

Brady’s bunch

Fantastic fucking save 😊 somethings building


2 fantastic fucking saves actually !


Think we have a new weapon in Ramsdale He is like a catapult launching those long passes for the front speedster to chase.
Did I mentioned he deliver pin point passes


Top class first half!
Enjoyed each minute, inlcuding the defensive part. Gabriel-White partnership is getting mental. Couldn’t be happier

Merson's grin

Vardy and Evans are both c#nts!
