Miles better than any team we could have hoped to put out only a week ago. Only Theo and Song really missing. We've got the personelle out there this year .... let's give these f***ers a game!!

Oh Jeez- I'm swinging between joy and worry at this news. Hope they know what they're doing and that it isn't a gigantic gamble! COME ON ARSENAL!!!!!!!!

Genuinely feeling sick with nerves here. Football is an absolute killer in these massive games.

Rosicky ahead of Arshavin is an interesting one. While Tommy does not have the same type of attacking prowess as Arshavin has, he certainly does a good job tracking back and pressurising the opponent.

Rosicky is the right choice I think (I hope), it's imperitive we don't concede in the first 30 minutes and hopefully Tommy's tackling skills will help with that. Then we'll unleashe Double A with 20 to go to rip their hearts out again!

No fear.

Too right. This is one of those nights that you know you're supposed to enjoy and want for your team- but it's also on these occasions that I wish I wasn't interested in football- thanks Dad. Ah well, too late now- Arsenal has the hooks in too deep! GUNNNNNNNERRRRRRRSS!

"ARSHAVIIIINNN. To win it for Arsenal". To hear that from Tyler's mouth again today would be great.

These are the sort of games in which you just start shaking in your pants in anticipation.
