Arsenal v DERBY @ Emirates Stadium 22.09.07

Another game I can't get too, tickets sold out to Platinum members...so I will now be getting a platinum membership, had enough of missing games now.

Main aim for this game is to avoid another Liverpool debacle, and then go onto the big game at home to Bolton the week after.

no chance, but hopefully Derby don't embrass themselves. Arsenal can be very dangerous, but this result should give us some confidence meaning only a 2:0 or 3:0 loss p

There's always a chance, we ourselves have been to Highbury, Old Trafford and Anfield and won, when everyone said we've no chance. But you don't expect anything. A good battling performance will do me.

you always have a chance when we have Adebayor upfront blasting shots into the away enclosure.

but not much.

I think if we are being realistic with ourselves... this is one of those games we can just write off... an away game at one of the top four..... if we can any sort of result I would be over the moon

Im obviously gonna tip for an Arsenal win.... 3-0!!!!!... I would be happy with that... but lets hope we can actually put in a good performance for our travelling fans

Is really hoping one day we will create footballer's who are actually creative rather than have 'great' engines...is that hard to ask

Hleb and Rosicky are both out, that's very good for you as we will be a lot less fluid without them two.

Hopefully Fabregas wakes up with a touch of flu as well

BENNY'S BEEN THERE BEFORE
Posted on: Fri 21 Sep 2007

Benny Feilhaber might not have been in English football for long but he's in a prime position to tell his team-mates about the Emirates Stadium.

The US international played there against Arsenal last season - in the Champions League, while wearing the colours of German side SV Hamburg.

And it's given him a great insight into the Gunners' new home ahead of Derby's first trip there on Saturday.

"It was unbelievable," the 22-year-old revealed to RamsWorld.

"The match was a huge one for us in the Champions League and we went a goal up, then I came on at half-time.

"But they were coming at us for the whole game, they were running constantly, and eventually they beat us.

"It was a good experience for me though so I know a little bit more about what to expect this weekend."

Arsenal may have won the game 3-1 but Feilhaber also discovered that the Emirates Stadium is a great venue to play football in.

"The pitch is like a putting green out there," he said.

"It is one of the best pitches I've ever played on so hopefully it's the same on Saturday as it was last year."

Feilhaber, who made his Rams debut in Monday's 1-0 win over Newcastle United, admits that the Gunners are favourites for tomorrow's encounter.

"We know they're the favourites because they are playing at home, they are first in the Premier League, and we know it's going to be a tough game," he added.

"But because of that we've got nothing to lose so we've got to go out there and give our best performance.

"Whether we get the points or not, the most important thing is that we go there and perform to the best of our abilities.

"If we can get a point there then it's a huge confidence boost for us but if not we have got three games coming up against teams we should take points from.

"We go there with no real high expectations other than the expectation to play well."

Well looking at the team, there's no real call fur urgent changes this week, but knowing Billy he'll make some

If anything McEveley in for Griffen and Feilhber in for Lewis are the only changes I'd even consider.

I'm going for 3-1, think we can get a goal, another Miller wonder strike, but it's hard work for anyone to keep Arsenal below 3 at the moment.

ah well, as good as Matt Oakley is, I don't think he can keep Fabregas quiet.

I'm going 3-1 as well, fancy Steve Howard to finally score today.

I actually moved to Florida so we met there. Now he's got a couple hours to get back to London.

Seriously, Arsenal should win but let's hope for an entertaining game.

Good luck to you Rams fans.

That'll do me, though we're going to have to get men behind the ball, or you'll rip us to pieces.
