Who invited you to the party? :grin:

By the way, the away leg will likely be a pretty early KO, right? Afternoon off work it is.


#1987

Lokomotiv 0 Arsenal 0
CSKA 1 Arsenal 0
Spartak 4 Arsenal 1

I’d stay in work if I were you :stuck_out_tongue: Id probably give up my pay to avoid having to watch us play away in russia too! :speak_no_evil:


#1988

It’s OK, they’ve released the schedule. All 8.05pm kickoffs so I’ll be able to join the torture chamber with everyone else. I like being able to express my masochist nature as often as possible :smile:


#1989

So what kind of lead do we need to bring to Russia to have a ‘comfortable’ night?

3-0 minimum?


#1990

Wenger really was shit in the CL in his early years (tbh every year bar 2006-2010 really) wasn’t he?


#1991

I’d assume one of two of these games were a final round group stage match where we’d send out the fodder/kids. Reckon we’ll do 'em home and away


#1992

Look at the fucking state of this


#1993

Not sure whats worse, the 4 clear cut chances in the video or that fact Aliadiere played for us.


#1994

LOL I remember that Rosicky miss


#1995

I remember watching that and raging all over the place punching chairs and shit when Cesc missed that chance, plus Henry’s few.


#1996

Was it a crucial game for us?


#1997

Nah just a group game but after having lost the cl the year before I was desperate for us to smash it in 06-07.

Won’t mention my feelings after the PSV games.


#1998

Alas not! The CSKA game was in October and was in the middle of the schedule, in fact we bored the football world to tears with a back to back 1-0 loss away and 0-0 at ‘Emirates Stadium’

Loko really was not all that loco, a tepid affair preceded by my purse getting stolen on the Moscow subway and followed by getting propositioned by a Russian gangster. Oh and we’d just got walloped 3-0 at home by Inter. Proper rubbish season that turned out to be


#1999

Arsenal 3 - 0 CSKA
CSKA 0/1 - 0/1 Arsenal

Hopefully the people that go at least get rewarded with a goal


#2000

8-0


#2001

That game was something else. Beautiful football coupled with enormous frustration. Our xG must have been in orbit.


#2002

If only we had Welbeck back then to put all those chances away.


#2003

Young Fabregas :heart_eyes:


#2004

Henry…just disgusting so so so so fucking wasteful, shouldda been benched :henry2:


#2005

3-0 should be enough. The must is not to concede.
