Arsenal v Rennes

Put out the strongest team possible and leave nothing on the pitch. We have nearly 3 weeks before our next match after this one. Are we still without Laca and Sokrtis, or just Laca?

Why is there 3 weeks of no fixtures? S.hitty internationals I assume but its never usually that long.

I'm guessing there is an match postponed v a team still in the FA cup. We play Thursday then not again until the 1st of April.

That's s.hite. The Rennes first leg aside, it finally felt like Emery was starting to get it right and we were building some momentum just as those around us were starting to struggle.

1st April match is at home to Newcastle so I hope we'll just get back on track.

Yep one FA cup weekend then Internationals I think we play again on 1 April a Monday



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

In fact that international break is a good thing to give us a breather after a hectic December/January.
And more intensive tactical training to iron out all those knicks and knacks with key players developing better understanding of movement and mobility of each other.

Sokratis will be a loss. But I have to say I fancy us to score a couple. Just not sure we can stop them scoring.

Needs to be one of those old typical arsenal matches where we just smash them 3-0 in first twenty minutes

Either that way, or play solid in defence, ahem, and just pick them off when we can, we only need two nil to go through.

If Emery sets up Arsenal to be too defensive at home, he will be crucified as being not adventurous enough. If he puts out a full attacking team, he will be nailed for being callous by exposing Arsenal to the counter attack. The one thing I can count on Emery to do is he will study the opponent in great detail and set up his team accordingly. So I will trust him with whatever team he sets up today.

we don't need to go too defensive, but I don't want to see going gung ho and conceding early on, we'll have to score lots then.
