and as it's Arsenal and their fax machne is always on the blink, it wouldn't surprise me to see Yannick Carrasco lining up for them against us.

Well if Monreal is fit that gives us a 1 goal handicap already

He is. Apparently.

Much as I'd love to see it (obviously) I'm struggling to see us winning. :(

no Balbuena is a setback. Hernandez still out ?

fab
zab diop ogbonna cresswell
snoddy rice obiang
Antonio arnie Anderson

subs Adrian masuaka noble diagana silva carroll nasri

start hard and fast and you never know. ogbonna is due a decent game.
cant see us keeping a clean sheet so will need two goals
need a decent crowd performance as against Birmingham it was awful.

ARNIE X 2 happy hammers 2-1

I was confident before I found out Balbuena would still be injured. With Ogbonna and Diop, I think we'll concede 3 goals at least.

Arnie getting dog's abuse on Saturday will help our cause no end.

Let’s not. It can only possibly be counterproductive both in terms of the game and how much we might get for him.

Was expecting Hernandez and Balbuena back, however this doesn’t look like it’s happening. With the Arnie disruption added to it, I’m less confident than I was.

Would certainly start Nasri.

How I would love to win this one.

I can't get past their srike for though. We've been so poor at the back lately that the thought of Lacazette and or Aubameyang facing them... I just can't see us keeping a clean sheet. I can see us scoring, I think we should be right up for this and should be expecting a property team performance. To be honest of offered a point right now I'd take it in a heartbeat.

Honestly I don't know why he would. His muppet agent doing what he does every window is irrelevant. If Arnie came out in the press saying"I want out" that's one thing. If the club want to squash it, they should tell him to do what he did in the summer and come out and call it all noise and not his priority. Job done. Even if he does want to go. They all know what the game is and how to play it.

It’s very convenient that the entire Arsenal defence who have been out for their past few matches are all expected to be back: Bellerin, Koscielny and Monreal all passed fit.
Hopefully we’ll still punish them.

with the arnie side show in full swing I cant see us getting anything now.
Balbuena being out is a big blow
Hernandez is getting as bad as carroll, never fit. time to move him on along with carthorse and perez.


we will know if arnie is off at 1130am, if he is not playing then he is. would be good to see him come out score a couple get MOTM and say on TV he is going nowhere.


in the real world I fear a 0-4 defeat and arnie missing !


we will need to buy soon !

I'm not so confident now as I was earlier on in the week as the Arnie Show has now taken over the club.

If I was Pellegrini I don't think I'd have him anywhere near the squad. I think it will be disruptive for the game and the fans. Better to have the team focused on trying to do the job without him and without having a pantomime going on in the background.

I love Arnie, he is a great player but let's face it, we all knew this would happen eventually. He came to us for more money and he's going to leave for more money. To be honest, I think we would be better off without all the drama he brings - the all about me stuff.

Anyway, I trust Pellegrini to do the right thing by the team and back his decision whatever it is.

Does anybody have any connections to the DJ at the soulless bowl ? If so, can he please play Michael Jackson's, ' One bad apple' tomorrow. I think it would send out a poignant message and it would also be very rather hilarious

Let him play, let him bow out with a brace and let him have his lap of honour where he hands out various bits of playing kit to kids in the stands as he slowly makes his way off the pitch in just his pants and vest.

That will be the end of it as we don't play at home again until 29th Jan.

Even with those players being fit, their defence is still pretty rubbish. But what's the chances of them having an absolute blinder tomorrow and keeping a clean sheet!

Does anyone know what age you need a ticket for? Was going to bring my 2 year old but wasn't sure if he needs one. Thanks!

We've beaten Arsenal at home just 3 times since 1987 the last time being 2006...

And I can't see us bucking that trend tomorrow unfortunately

So if Arnie goes too that means buying 4 new strikers in January :eh:
