Whyyyyyy

Ealing

Not fit, I guess

Nate

I was mostly lamenting the cruelty of the gods.

NorthernGooner

I guess Arteta was tempting fate when he said that, bar something happening to the players while they were in bed, they were all fit

Nketibag

No Partey tonight then. Gutted.

Martin R

Muscular injury.

Johnny 4 Hats

No Partey, no Jesus for the biggest game of our season.

But Klopp tells us how lucky we are with injuries.

And if we lose tonight, it’ll be all about how badly we are “choking”.

Better not lose then!

COYFG!!!!

Arun

But imagine if we didn’t buy Jorginho, It would have been Lokanga today!

Domi

Maybe white, then tomi at RB. Or zinc/Tierney LB

TeeCee

Yes, we would rue that poor decision.
A sort of Lokanga rue, if you will.

Chris

COME ON YOU REDS!

Sam

Nooooo where is Partey!!!! Jorginho time to show your worth

Jonas

Finally taking White to the bench. Go Gunners!!

Deano

Devastating news, but still have to believe. GOYG!!!

appelsenpere

This is war.

Grimmjow

Mmmm. This will not be an easy one. No Partey complicates things. But we’ll be fine

Stevo

Damn man, of all the games for Partey to miss 🤦🏻‍♂️ up the Arsenal!

K-Gooner

Letss gooo! COYG! 3 points we need!

Paul

1 would do but yeah let’s go…

K-Gooner

This team has spoilt us fans. From hoping we’d get a point to believing we can go for 3 points. What shambles of emotion. But seriously, let’s gooo! Jorge, STFU n deliver today!

Anon

Balls

Paul

No pressure Jorge…

flash

So we’re about to find out if our January transfer business was a master stroke or a master joke. Praying for the former, of course.

Jackie's Willy

No. Everything does not rest on this one game.

flash

Yeah I meant Jorge coming in for partey? I was in no way suggesting that EVERYTHING rested on this game. Sorry to have confused you.

Jackie's Willy

Why do I always await approval? I’ve been here for years! 😒

Domi

Same here. I had a bit of a negative period with emery and even arteta but was not impolite to anyone. And now 2 yrs always need to be approved. Blogs is tough and accepts a certain audience in his halls.

Stonks

Partey absence might be a blessing in disguise

Nainsley Aitland Miles

How?

Of course if we win 1-0, Jorginho is an overnight hero.

karl g

Only if they’d have tried to play him with the injury. I remember how that went a couple of years ago, so probably the right call.

Bossman Bill

Well, that’s why we bought him, in case of this exact situation.

Fingers crossed. COYG.

Anon

True but I’d rather we needed him in an easier game

Badaab

i’d rather he wasn’t signed at all!

Gathiita

I think Arsenal still has sufficient firepower to put the scammers to the sword. COYFR

BillyKrystal

Let’s show them how to really abuse FFP – fucking football perfected

Brady’s bunch

Let’s fooking go

City only playing 3 defenders should mean more space for Saka and Martinelli as they won’t be doubled up.

Seems like their plan is to pack the midfield – probably because Pep assumed TP would start. If Jorginho is outnumbered in the middle, we may have a problem.

A draw would be a good result. 0-0 wouldn’t surprise me.

Unfortunately, I think City win tonight and then go on to win the league by around 10 points.

Come on Arsenal, don’t bottle it.

Karl g

Depends on whether look like 3 or 5 at the back.

Mark

CØYG!!!!!!

Mark

CØYG!!

Dada

Bold line up.

Nainsley Aitland Miles

I wish we did have Steve Bould to help us deal with Haaland.

monkeyjackson

without partey, i fear the worst

Gordy

We can’t just rely on one midfield player, however good. We have a winner taking his place but we all need to pray.

Badaab

correct, which is why edu and the club should have done something about this situation last january, over the summer, or even last month

BillyKrystal

Anyone know ESR’s estimated return? It’s a little stab in the gut every time he doesn’t make the bench. Just get him some stem cell injections already!

lonsdale

Horse placenta please

Badaab

well it was nice while it lasted…

Ricky

Lol writing off the season because a player you don’t like has to start due to injury, some fan you are.

What’d you think about Jorge nicking that pass and playing that delicious through ball to Nketiah?

Badaab

what do you think about having to adjust our entire gameplan to accommodate his lack of pace. seems great.

Ricky

No problem thus far. Hasn’t put a foot wrong. 100% pass rate i believe and two intricate passes to set up good scoring chances.

What else you got?

Badaab

defend the player all you like, i’m not going to change your mind, and i’m not trying to. he’s not a player for this team and was a desperate signing on deadline day because our recruitment team failed to adequately prepare.

Ricky

But let’s cry about it over and over again because obviously Lokonga is a better option.

We tried to sign other players but were priced out of the ones we wanted and ended up with a nice piece of business on deadline day for situations just like this.

Just a bit tired of your narrative.

Badaab

you’re the one attempting to force a binary decision on me, so the narrative isn’t mine, fella

Santi’s Thigh Grab

Lazy analysis.

FMT

Partey is always missing in this game. We’ll never truly know how much we have grown against Man C – our biggest opponent

Moronic Inferno

Lee Mason probably snuck in and kicked Partey in training.

Emi Rates

This is Jorginho’s moment to shine. Go on, convince us by putting those cheating fucks back in their box!

COYG!

Teletextboy

Aaaages ago Mr Blogs recommended a good online Arsenal streaming service 😉😉. It was paid for but always has rock solid streams for its patrons. Anyone know what it was???? Cheers

The Stress Sessions

Saka getting his legs hacked by Silva at the first attempt for no foul. Fuck these referees man.

Emi Rates

He got away with it so many times until Taylor FINALLY issued the long overdue yellow.

Ealing

Gundogan is man marking Jorginho

Leon

I just wonder if White would have made such a horrendous mistake as Tomiyasu just made..

Rick_Sanchez

Tomi had an absolute stinker. But so did Granit.

FMT

Partey is always missing in this game. We’ll never truly know how much we have grown against Man C – our biggest opponent

Rick_Sanchez

We’re paying big time for having such a young team. And Pep changed the game with his switch (Akanji in). Well, f*ck!

Leon

How can you pay for having a young team ?
All of them are internationals and most played at the world cup.
We paid for dithering in the transfer market – let’s be honest no one wanted Jorginho and we really needed a striker.
I just hope we can get some form back because this result is an absolute worse case scenario for us.
I just hope we still finish top four because that’s not set in stone by any means.

Rick_Sanchez

Because we made stupid mistakes and did not find ways to play around their press.

Jorghino was more than ok today. I don’t want to think about what would have happened with Sambi in that midfield.

But I agree, Eddie was not good enough today.

Baz

Nketiah has had three clear headers unmarked and hasn’t got one on target ffs

Gabriel always seems to have a brain fart in him. Becoming less convinced with him each week. He was culpable for their second goal and was just bailed out with an offside.

Pressure is on now to beat Everton at home, but on our current form I can see them taking points from us.

1 point from 9 now, we need to change this form otherwise we have no chance.

Leon

Not one shot on target in the second half.
That’s it – every one of our detractors proven correct.
Just a season like the ten seasons before it.
