Thanks for brightening my Sunday mate - both by putting the thread up for our next meaningful match and the genius title :D

Sadly I make you right. We'll probably have the chance to move up the PL by 2 places a few days later to 9th, so Bellend will probably be captain for this with his right side partner in crime Willian making up the least dynamic duo since Batman and Robin both contracted COVID.

Mustafi and Chambers at centre half, Xhaka and Elneny doing their 1930s impression, Nketiah wandering around like a little boy lost whilst Balogun talks to six or seven other clubs who appreciate his value.

4 goalies on the bench

Oh well at least there's only 26 more sleeps to go :barscarf:

We'll lose.

Is this a two legged thing?

Literally ALL we have left to play for.

2-1 win for the Arsenal with Willian Huff n Puff to huff and puff slowly around doing fuck all, and Bellend to piss every attempted pass away unless its backwards (his speciality), and Xhakatard to imperiously and gracefully float 40 yard lofted passes straight into touch whilst under no pressure whatsoever, and (ooh I'm getting a stiffy here) one of either Maitland-Bendtner or Pillock to clearly demonstrate that some day they will be captain... of the Palace reserves.

Cùnts. :x

Arsenal awaiting government guidance on situation in Portugal ahead of Europa League round of 32 tie against Benfica next month. All direct flights from UK to Portugal suspended because of COVID-19 variants. Talks open, numerous options open, including neutral venue for 1st leg.

Does the Bowl count as a neutral venue for the second leg?

Don't agree this is all we have left to play for, If we beat the mancs at the weekend, then top 4 is there to play for.
I'd prefer to qualify via the lge as it would be more a measure of progress, than an 8th place finish and a cup win.
That said, top 4 and a cup win would be very nice :wink:
Im furloughed at the minute and have nothing better to do with my time, other than talk shite on here :lol:

Bloody stupid to have any European competitions continuing at the moment.
Just continue with the domestic ones for this season and then hopefully restart normally for next season.

So what would you do with this year's ones? Just abandon them totally? If that's the case you're removing the opportunity for us and a great number of teams to have their only reasonable shot at a trophy, and CL football.

Calm down there Arsene! :box: :lol:

Personally I think we'll finish somewhere between 7th and 4th as the PL is just so bad with so many poor teams in it.

Also personally - and not being a Nordy fuckwad like your good self sid - I'd rather win a trophy and finish 7th than finish 4th and win fuck all.

CL qualification? With this manager and team? Why bother? If you thought Wengers later teams took some cornholings can you image how much assrape this shower of shite would be on the receiving end of in the CL? :shock:
