It has to be. It’s got a lot of Heinie’s on it.

Yes, I’m only funny when Arsenal are shit.



Looking forward to seeing our Marqui signing.

Getting my coat…

Whenever I make comments like this, I find it’s helpful to be Holding your coat at the ready so you can just Turner round and leave before you get your Heiny kicked.

It’s only a matter of time before our back four is Tierney Holding White Willy.


Jesus that is funny!

But Frodo’s coach said they had Arsenal all figured out.

Silly Guy


Is Gandalf Frodo’s coach? Or is it Samwise?

Please nothing happen to Martinelli, Gabriel or Xhaka

Boss man B

Keep it positive!! 😉


Absolutely. I guess Cedric isn’t fit enough yet. At least Martinelli and Gabi had some rest recently since they didn’t go with Brazil. I’m most nervous for Xhaka. But hey, if this was Champions League they’d play and nobody would complain… no doubt medical team will be monitoring and adjusting the training to ballance


If this was CL, they will play yesterday or Tuesday. Not today with Liverpool coming up on Sunday as well.
Fingers crossed for all the players to win without any injuries.

Or the other 8 players.


gonna be hard for nelson to “do it on the pitch” per arteta’s quotes this week re: his situation if he can’t even start in the europa league and martinelli has to do double-duty.

Mayor McCheese

This is the first competitive match he’s been available after no pre-season and a lengthy injury, so there’s no reason anyone should have expected him to start. I imagine he’ll come on as a sub, though.

House of Goons

Fast start – 2-0 in 30 minutes and get Martinelli off at the half. Mr. Nelson gets his chance. Starting to worry about Martinelli – the lad needs a break. Especially after the vicious cunty spudsy attack.


Nah, I feel like Martinelli is a hungry player like Xhaka. He loves playing anywhere at anytime. Plus he hasn’t had games because of the international break. Hasn’t gotten injured since 19/20 season “knock wood”. Hopefully we kill this game off quickly and he gets a Lil rest.

Teryima Adi

Let’s beat them, folks. COYG!!!


Hope we’re up 3-0 after 45 minutes to give xhaka, Martinelli and Gabriel a rest ahead of Liverpool. It’s quite obvious now that from MA’s point of view, we have no reliable back up for the 3.



Hope FA cup winner Matt Smith makes his debut today, imagine having a winners medal and not yet made an appearance

Cedric is on the bench. Ramsdale isn’t.
