I'm well excited for this game. Ac Milan are gonna get F'd in the A. Their old legs don't stand a chance against our youth and determination. Wouldnt it be funny if We destroy Ac Milan and Utd get done by Lyon.

This feels like a proper cup game, and seeing as we dont have the Euros to look forward to this summer, the CL has more importance to me for escapism. Come on Arsenal!

The old elgs will play Italian style - catenaccio with 11 players behind the ball.

Their style is really to spoil Arsenal passing game, hit us on the counter-attack.

Notice that our style is to pass around the box, no sharp penetration, overtly depending on FAbregas' passing skill and Hleb ball control and holding ability near teh box.

This is eaxaclt the style Italian teams played in La Liga, and MIlan defence facing it every week.

Milan knew how to knock us off our strides, blatantly spoiling and body-checking Fabregas and Hleb.

MIlan is looking for 0-0 at Emirates and then take us out at San Siro.

We need to score, keep clean-sheet.....and then play catenaccio at San Siro.

Full Milan squad: Kalac, Fiori, Offredi; Cafu, Maldini, Nesta, Kaladze, Simic, Jankulovski, Favalli, Bonera, Oddo; Emerson, Gattuso, Seedorf, Gourcuff, Pirlo, Ambrosini, Brocchi; Kaka, Gilardino, Inzaghi, Pato.

Gattuso, Pato, Kalac, all injured my ars*nal???

They were just playing mind games, I wouldnt be suprised to see RVP spring up and play the full 90 these days.

If he's gonna play, i'd rather he starts. Every time he comes back from injury he takes a few shots to settle and score. Which he's obviously more than capable of!!

i don't think milan will play for a 0:0.they will definately try to score enough away goals.the question is,can we score and keep a clean sheet?

If milan's full squad has 23 players in it, that is because it is the squad they named for the rest of the CL, not the squad they will have at The Emirates.

The squad they have at The Emirates can only contain 16 players.

They have a number of injury worries, particularly Kalac in goal, Kaka, Pato & Gattuso.

cant wait.

Reckon milan will just sit back and try and nick one goal, whenever it may come. We cant get suckered by them.

We HAVE TO get that first goal! Then control the game.

they normally can only score 1 at home. we need to attack them from the off. defend wisely, like tonight, AND SCORE FIRST!!

I am extremely confident about this tie.
