  • No Henry on the bench eh? Interesting. Fabregas I imagine will start on the bench, and Wenger will be hoping to leave him there unless we fall behind.

  • A better squad than the 1st leg imo. I’m getting nervous now, not sure whether i’m nervy of being beaten up or the game itself. I have heard some nasty rumours from some Spurs fans regarding their plans tonight.

  • Wouldn’t suprpise me to see Theo play with Ali up front after Wenger’s earlier comments tody. Would like to see Gilberto and Denilson play together in the centre. Tho who’d play on the wing other than Tomas? Theo’s gonna score tonight!!!

  • Flamini could play on either flank, Diaby can play on the left, could stick Ade up front and play Ali on left.

  • I hope his form improves soon. I’m not gonna criticise him as he’s still only little. But he just hasn’t been very good recently. I think that coz he’s supposed to be the “next big English thing” it kinda stops a lot of the criticism of him. Look at Song for example! He’s not played very well, but has put up with a lot of stick. Has Theo played any better than him??? (He’s still gonna score tonight tho!!!)

  • i think he should play CESC and get the result done and dusted, then take him off ! CESC only will need 20 mins to finish the tie off.

  • I bet you the same thing happens as las week. We will lead, only to be pegged back when Wenger brings on 2 “big guns” (prob Adebayor and fabregas)

  • i agree, a cracking game. i think ade will start with ali upfront, while i hope he starts with diaby on left wing. he needs a few more starts. gilberto and denilson in the middle, wth cesc on the bench (god knows he needs a rest!!). i hoped clichy wouldnt start coz i wanna see more of traore, but looking at the way lennon had his measure at WHL, it looks like it will be clichy tonight. quite a bit of experience then for us (which is of course, a relative term :).

  • jackyB, you have 11 first teamers, what is the problem ? surely your not going to say ” its not fair, wenger played a stronger team than we expected” i mean surely you use your squad to its best ability. even though he has said he will play the kids, he needs experience in there to help guide them.

  • A cracking NLD with a very very familiar outcome. I will write one on this Semi-Final, I’ve been itching to do it since the “2-0 to the Engerland” chant…

  • Ha Ha they’re directing their frustration at Andy Gray and Sky now, they are such a laughing stock, like its his fault they were gutless, clueless magggots
