No Arsh treatment for Porto plus other injury news.
I think the title should have been:No “real Arsenal” and “Arsh treatment” for Porto.But that would have been too long in my opinion. Please pardon my manners. Hello gooners and non gooners alike.Hope your day has been good. Mine has been splendid and i cant wait to feel the breath of fresh air that comes along with the Champions League. I can rarely wait for us to play “European” teams again. So it seems we have the easiest draw of all the English clubs with the old Chavs playing their “messiah” Mourinho in charge of Inter Milan, Manchester IOU playing their bogey team, Milan and Liverpool playing Barnet! Yeah i know the scousers have been eliminated but i just felt like rubbing it on them.That what you get when you have a proud serial diver as your captain and a club legend.
Andrei(I love addressing the players by their first or nicknames) isn’t playing, he strained his hamstring that’s why. I really don’t feel we’ll miss him that much but he’s definitely the kind of player you always want in your team. He just has this air of magic around him.Also Alex isnt playing and i feel he’ll be badly missed. Arsene will be looking to get an away(and possibly the winning) goal in this match.At 1-0 up, we’ll need Alex to do his thing:breaking up attacks, setting up new ones IMMEDIATELY and liberating and protecting Cesc.The only positive is the presence of Abou who has been magnificent of late. He should do a good job alongside Aaron or Denilson(his first name is shite…(lol). Some United fans have been disturbing me with a useless fact that FC Porto “rarely” lose at home, and that the only English team to have beaten them at home is Man IOU. But I was always quick to remind them that Milan’s only home defeat in 13 games against English clubs came at this same stage of the competition two years ago when they went down 2-0 to our darling Arsenal. So if United could beat Milan, Arsenal can defeat Porto.
So I feel we’l get a hard-fought win. Big Al is out, so Lukasz should step in.Also Willie and Dudu wont make it. Sol should replace Willie but i’m still hoping on the defence keeping a clean sheet in this one. Bakky should return at right back with a front 3 of Samir,Tomas and Nikky B; with the big Dane playing centrally once more. Theo can come on for any of the wing forwards later on. So can Carlito(Vela) after a long time out due to injury.
