A few days ago a chap calling himself @arseblagger posted this:-
Now I have to say this fine fellow is easily the smartest and most entertaining of tweeters, so it’s no surprise that once again he has been proven right. I recommend that we all stop following everyone but him, he’s pure genius.
Anyway, as he predicted, after Thursday night we could be looking at a sea change in our spirits and prospects for the rest of the season.
The display at the weekend and our home form in general gives us a good chance of going through despite the two goal disadvantage from the first leg.
There was great news on Tuesday when we learned that Lacazette had had is ban reduced to two games and is eligible to play. Also Mkhitaryan could be fit to play, although Papa will miss out following his red card at Rennes.
Predicting who and how Emery will line up is a pointless endeavour, so we’ll just have to wait and see. Torreira is available so whether we will see both, or even one, of Ozil and Ramsey is unsure. Personally I would find a place for both of our best players but I’m not the head coach.
It should be a great night as we will have to go for it. I, for one, am looking forward to the game.
Being an Arsenal fan is a bit like being a surfer, one moment you are riding on the crest of a wave and the next you are flapping about struggling for breath. It’s a weird old season.
Ok, that’s it, I’m off to twitter to read the musings of the wonderful @arseblagger .
