away, hard game against title contenders.

we win, increases our lead and really one step closer to the title

a lose, a major set back, then we would need to press on winning as man utd AND chelsea would be close on us.

injury set backs latest is that ashly cole AND gilberto silva are to miss the game as they were injured in the number of friendlies.

----------------------lehmann--------------------

clichy---------kolo------------sol---------lauren

reyes--------parlour--------vieira--------pires

----------------henry----------berggy------------

thats my team.

go you gunners!

anything but a loss!!!

draw or win please!

Swifty,Parlour is out for six weeks with damaged medial ligaments,but i think Fred is back. :)

my guess is that Cole will miraculously make it as well :D

here's mine

---------------------Jens
Ralph--------Kolo-------Sol------Ash

Fred--------Paddy------Edu------Bob

---------------Dennis
---------------------------Titi

this will leave us with a strong bench of

Stacky,Cygan,Clichy,Reyes,Kanu


Chelsea 1-2 the Arse :cool:

Hassel,Titi,Bob. ;)

Double respect to Ranieri for not going on about the offside goal last w-end. I really like his fair play attitude and I really think it should be appreciated more in the press. The sad fact though is probably that the press prefer managers (and players) to slag off referees and their opponents, As it makes better articles. I also think his team's suffer a bit because of it. Because no matter what the morons in yellow, black, green or whatever colour they are wearing for the day :D says. It can't be funny being slaged off infront of the whole country by some of the most respected managers in the world.

Anyway, To this w-ends game. I suppose it's fair enough when people say that we could have lost last w-end but it can't be luck when we manage to beat them every time in the most strange ways. Generally I think we are a better team than Chelsea, Maybe not if you compare us player by player but as a team on the pitch we’re definitely better.
However I suppose we got to lose to them sometime and the scary thing about Chelski 2004 is that they can score at anytime. They got a whole bunch of player who can score at anytime from nowhere, even though we always seems to score 1 goal more :D.

My guess is 2 - 2 on Saturday, Campbell score the equaliser in the 91th minute.

it's not fair enough at all Jacke :tongue:

it was 1-0 to them,they had it in their own hands,Edu and Vieira stepped up to the plate and the Chelsea midfield wilted under the pressure. ;)

we bullied them. :cool:

http://soccernet.espn.go.com/headlinenews?id=291850&cc=3436

important quotes from the article:

He told the club's official website: 'Ashley has a stiff back. He came in today and it was very stiff and very inflamed.

'We believe he will be short for Saturday's game but he might have a chance to play on Tuesday (at Celta Vigo in the Champions League).'

'Gilberto has a bad knock on his ankle but fortunately it is not twisted. We will see how he responds to treatment today and training tomorrow. There is small possibility for Saturday

'But Ray Parlour (knee) is out as well so our options are shorter now. It is important not to get any more injuries.'

------------

ashly cole: out for chelsea, maybe in for celta

gilberto: possibility to play against chelsea

parlour: out


so freddie and willy is back, so i think i will go with jern's team.

and with Reyes comming in the seconed half
else Reyes begin in the right instead of Ljungberg

I think he won't make it at the Arsenal,he had an opportunity to show he had a good attitude,play well and keep his head down at Leeds.

what has he done,gone out drinking with Jody Morris and got into trouble with the Police,then he gets done for drink driving a few weeks later :rolleyes: and his form has been nothing to write home about either.

he may well have the talent to play for the Arsenal,but IMO he doesn't have the character,i expect him to be moved on in the summer.

Surprisingly Henry and Campbell are back :rolleyes:


Chelsea's injury worries are much more seveere unfortunately. Crespo, Duff, Cudicini, Petit, Stanic and Veron are all out :O..

Still if teams come to attack us at Stamford Bridge I always fancy are chances... 2 - 1

(Guddy and Lamps) (Pires :O)?
