    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.

    Big ask without Casemiro. Hopefully ETH can come up with something.

    McTominay and Fred both need to play and we need to hope we can shithouse it on the break. Players are wrecked though. We simply don't have the squad to deal with this schedule. Think we are in for a real beating here, their momentum is crazy at the moment.

    Pack the midfield, park the bus, and try to shithouse our way to a 0-0 a la Newcastle.

    Sad but that's pretty much our only chance to avoid a walloping.

    This will 100% be a loss I have never been wrong when I have this feeling. It will be a tight game I feel like which will make the loss even more hard to accept.

    I’d genuinely give Martinez a go at 6. He’ll be aggressive, slot into a back 4 and has a good range of passing.

    Think we just need to fight hard for a point, or lay down a marker for next season.

    McT can't be relied upon. I struggle to think of who we can have in the midfield that can contain Arsenal.

    Let's just forfeit the game now, we need to focus on the cup games we have coming up...

    I mean we can't be seriously thinking of causing problems with Weghorst in the starting line up can we ? Like Fellaini without the tekkers

    Yet another huge slice of fortune for Arsenal as our best player gets suspended for this game. Last game before the card threshold gets reset and in a game that was sandwiched in last minute, it's the perfect storm for them.

    Arsenal aren't unbeatable and we are arguably better now than when we beat them. That said, a point would suffice and they will want revenge

    De gea
    Shaw
    Martinez
    Varane
    AWB

    McTominay
    Eriksen
    Fred

    Fernandez
    Martial/Weghorst
    Rashford/Antony

    Not sure who is fit in our attack but would rather Martial for this than Weghorst

    I wonder if ETH will throw Martinez up at DM but he hasn't played there for us as far as I remember so maybe not, could surprise Arteta?

    I'm sure ETH had a backup plan as he knew the risks of Case getting a yellow before game

    Yep they are having that season where everything falls into place perfectly. Brighton missed their best players against them too. However they have also been very good this year too.
