Superb performance once again yesterday . Juventus were so poor, it is unbelievable that they lead the Serie A by 10 points or so. I had the feeling that if Arsenal really wanted to, they could have trashed Juve by a margin of 2 or 3. Villarreal will be an interesting tie.
I've been able to watch Villarreal on more than a half a dozen occasions this year due to me being a degenerate and stupid gambler and have gotten to observe them a bit.
They're a good defending team (for a Spanish club) who have a never say die attitude and a penchant for getting goals at very inopportune times (for the opponents, of course). So they're very comfortable at playing levelled, a goal down, or a goal up. So, I think we should use a two forward formation of some sort against them and press them hard and often as only English clubs can do.
what will arsenal do with the shirts?
at all home games theyv used the home shrit with nike numbering... at all CL away games its been the yellow shirt with EPL numbering. but now, villareal's home is yellow, so whats gonna happen? we might bring back the navy from last year! or (hopefully) well use nike numbering away in europe also
Well I predicted everything right this weekend.
Notice i've changed my prediction to draw at Portsmouth because it's away, they're in good form and we'll be tired and recovering from a defeat at Old trafford.
Although Wednesday is in my opinion the last match where we'll logically drop points, bar injury crisis or something. Spurs at home we could lose, home advantage and the players determination should see us through there. Although I hope we get a good lead against Villarreal the match before so our minds are fully concentrated on the spurs match, rather on the villarreal match 3 days afterwards.
