a real midfield battle. but wengerball, if played right, will get the better of these ageing italians. Mattuso vs Gattuso and Cesc vs Kaka. bit early for this i know but wenger will play 4-5-1, so who will be left out of attack?

Actually , I am ok with this. I think our style of play will upend the defending Champs. In fact I am more concerned about this weekend than Milan. Ramos has already made an impact and Spurs are a tighter unit now than under wobberly Jol.

Also Rob, he doesnt have to leave anyone out. If everyone is fit then, although i know it's not his best position, stick RVP on the left and move Tommy Gun into central midfield alongside Cesc. keeps everyone happy, and we still have one of out most influential players on the pitch.

You'll be facing the Dinosaurs huh? Put your best defensive midfielders to block Seedorf and Kaka. The milan team dies.

Flights to Milan booked, £33, nice one. Though I think Liverpool are playing Inter away the night after we play Milan away, which doesn't fill me with joy.

I think you could do them, use your pacy attack against there old men and they won't stand a chance. The only way i can see milan getting through is if Ancelotti packs the midfield to stop the supply getting to van persie etc. And even then I'd have you down as favourites.

Am I alone in feeling fully confident about this game?? As long as we dictate the pace, then we will win. Simple!
