Two very poor teams playing against each other and really could go either way. If Haller / Antonio out-perform their attack, we win. If Aubameyang / Lacazette out-perform our attack, they win.

This has got to be whoever scores first, wins. The conceding team will just deflate, I can see it now.

Antonio has to play... it has come to that. I can't trust anyone else right now.

Battle of the 'tards

We might just have a sniff if Antonio is playing well but so many issues. They have a strike force we don't. In the soul drainer too.

West Ham 0 Arsenal 3

That's why it'll be a fun game to go to. There'll be an equal amount of trepidation, outright fear and forthright optimism pre match. There'll be 20 different potential lineups, none of which would be a surprise.

If we win it'll be great.
If we get thrashed it'll be hilarious.

The only thing that can ruin it now is VAR.

Arsenal have a defence much worse than ours. (I never thought I'd say that!) but have an attack better than ours. As long as Antonio is fit we stand a good chance of winning this. On paper it could be 3-3 which means it'll probably be 0-0

Arsenal have gone behind 13 times this season and equalised 9 of those times. If we go one up they won't consider themselves out of it. We'll have a game for the full 90, particularly if we're leading.

The west ham charity bus is getting ready, if ever a team need a result or a striker needs a goal we always step up to lend a helping hand

A team on a long winless streak.
An interim manager looking to impress.
Said interim manager happens to be against his former club.

Only one way this can go.

3-0 Arsenal.

2-0 Arsenal.

We are bereft while Haller and Anderson remain in the team.

I actually forgot this significant piece of our footballing history. Costly error, to put it nicely.

His legs had well & truly...well, you know the rest..
Another player in the extremely long history of us buying/renting a BIG name but ONLY when they were on their downward trajectory.

This was Curbs thinking he was getting the Freddie Ljungberg of his hey days of 5/10 years previous. God he was terrible in the transfer market, up there with the very worst
