    Know the opposition



    Arsenal Football Club (also known as The Gunners), are a professional football club based in Holloway, London. In late 1886, a gaggle of workers from the Woolwich Arsenal Armament Factory decided to form a football team. They called themselves Dial Square as a reference to the sundial atop the entrance to the factory. On December 11, 1886, Dial Square romped to a 6-0 victory over Eastern Wanderers; the first game in their initial guise. Shortly afterwards the name ‘Royal Arsenal’ was adopted. Today, Arsenal are one of the most successful and popular clubs in the history of the English league, with a trophy haul than includes 13 League titles, 12 FA Cups, and 2 League Cups.

    When Henry Norris decided that Arsenal needed a new manager in the summer of 1925, he could never have anticipated the impact of his next appointment. After flirting with relegation in the previous season, Chapman set about reinventing the Club with almost immediate effect, and in a broader sense helped move football from the amateur era into a professional one. In his first season at Highbury, the new manager steered the Gunners to an FA Cup Quarter Final and a second-place finish in the First Division; the highest league placing in their history. And unlike many of his contemporaries in Britain, Chapman was a fan of the continental game and counted among his friends Hugo Meisl and Jimmy Hogan, coaches of the Austrian Wunderteam of the 1930s.

    In the mid '90s, they appointed another visionary in Arsène Wenger with former vice-chairman David Dein bringing him to the club in 1996 - Dein actually wanted to appoint him a year earlier before Bruce Rioch but the old school board did not want a foreign manager - and the next 20 years have been a remarkable and unforgettable period in the club’s history - with Arsenal building a reputation for playing an attractive, streamlined style of football that rivals some of the best teams in Europe while winning three league titles and seven FA Cups and boasting the likes of Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, Patrick Vieira, Robert Pirès, Cesc Fàbregas and Robin Van Persie in their ranks.

    The club plays its home games at the Emirates Stadium, and has a bitter sporting rivalry with neighbors Tottenham Hotspur in a match termed the North London Derby, apart from a competitive rivalry against the other major clubs of the Premier League, especially Manchester United - in an affair that peaked in the late 1990s to early 2000s period.

    We'll get slapped again, because Arsenal have something to play for and are a team mentally while our season has been over for months and we've played like that for months

    Arsenal will win. I'm not putting myself through another ninety minutes of this team, probably won't even have notifications on. They're not worth the effort.

    You just lost 4-0, but we'll probably be on a 4 loss run, depressed fans derby.

    It’s only the fact these feckers are so shite we haven’t been put out of our misery yet this season. We’ll probably win and find a way to miss out on top 4 in the most calamitous way possible.

    If you're gonna throw Mejbri to the Wolves at Anfield, you may as well play him here.

    Last chance saloon for UCL so we have to go full strength and when we lose play the kids. Let the losers bury their own grave and have no excuses.

    Arsenal could be on a ten match losing streak and we’d still help them out of their slump.

    Can’t see anything but an Arsenal win.

    Thankfully only 5 games left in Uniteds season. This is the game where the slim hope of finishing 4th will end. United got a trimming off one of the top sides in Europe tonight, Arsenal will remain a rubbish side even if they win this game comfortably.

    Jones and Lindelof should start. Give AWB a chance at LB and Elanga at RB

    Ucl? Neh if we somehow win at the weekend we have a slim chance. Spurs play liverpool and arsenal too. Small chance but doable if we win at the weekend. But course we will lose on Saturday.

    Yeah. Early game. Hate stopping the activities to watch us play. Best to get it out of the way first thing so I can get on with the day. Feeling strangely confident for this one. We win this if Maguire is benched. Jones and Bailly in the middle.

    If only we had Brown, O'Shea, the Da Silva twins and Darron Gibson to call on for this fixture.

    If Maguire starts again this season, I will say that Rangnick is a coward.

    I am thinking after we lose to Arsenal and Chelsea that is the time when ETH will be announced to lift the spirits of the fans.
