A tricky hand …
The boys are off on a jaunt to Italy then.
As far as I can tell, a draw or a win puts us top of the group. A defeat by less than a 3 goal margin leaves us runners-up if BVB win in France. I am sure there are all sorts of complicated equations but that’s the gist of it, I think.
Goodness only knows what sort of a team we will put out given that we play City early on Saturday. It could be anything between the best eleven and a shadow team. I really don’t have a clue.
Nor does anyone else, bar Arsene.
A quick scan of some blogs tells me nothing other than what some experts recommend Arsene does.
I suspect no matter what happens on the night he will have made the wrong choices. If we play a strong team and win, we should have rested key players. If we play a weakened team and lose, we should have played a stronger team.
You know how it goes.
So I think its best if we experts decide in the comments section what Arsene should do.
