On the champion's league. It's VITAL we keep a clean sheet at home. Villarreal don't score a lot, but they score enough and don't conceed.

A 2-0 home victory would see us through. But that's asking a lot.

Adebayor fears Henry exit

Emmanuel Adebayor has warned Arsenal that Thierry Henry may leave the club if they fail to make the Champions League final.

The French striker has yet to sign a new long-term contract with Arsenal and has been linked with a summer move to Barcelona.

And the Togo striker believes beating Spanish side Villarreal over two legs in Europe's elite club competition is crucial to Arsene Wenger's hopes of persuading Henry to stay.

The first clash with the La Liga takes place at Highbury on Wednesday and Adebayor told the News of the World: "This is a huge game - for lots of reasons.

"Success in this tournament could mean the difference between Thierry agreeing a new contract or not. This game is so important for the club going forwards

I so hope that we get in 4th position this year but it doesnt seem possible atm....Draw at Portsmouth means a must win v Tottenham.... Might just win the CL like liverpool...

I would like Arsenal to get Torres as Adebayor is total crap... WTF did wenger pay £7 mil for a **** stricker who cant finish... and why aint he playin VP at front.


He bought adebayor cause it adds another dimension to the team, and 7 million cause he has the mental attributes that cannot be taught, whereas finishing can be taught to a player so yes.

You watch Arsenal play with Adebayor, you see Henry in a lot more space. Big players draw defenders because that's where the ball goes. Like Drogba for Chelsea and to a lesser extent van Nistlerooy. Secondly it was 7 million euros, so about 4 mill quid which is a fairly good deal. He's scored 4 goals in 10 games or something coming into a foreign culture and such. You can't judge him on this season, end of next season certainly.

And anyway, van Persie's done nothing in the last few games to say he's worth a starting place.

Table-
-----------Pld---GD---P
Spurs------36---15---62
Arsenal----35---30---58
Blackburn--35---4----54

Run out (Home matches in bold)-
Spurs- Bolton, West Ham

Blackburn- Charlton, Chelsea, Man City

Arsenal- Sunderland, Man City, Wigan



Predictions in order of fixtures-
Spurs-Draw, Win: 64
Arsenal- Win, Win, Win: 67
Blackburn- Win, Draw, Win: 61


Final standings-
Arsenal: 67
Spurs: 64
Blackburn: 61

The last throw of the dice everyone.

We NEED Bolton to do something on Saturday, we can't expect West Ham to do anything, they'll put out a weak side in preperation for the F.A. Cup Final.

These predictions are... hopeful.

It's not over but (trying not to sound defeatist here) prepare for no Henry and no Champion's League next season.

COME ON YOU GUNNERS!

We lost our chance to legitimately close the gap in that draw. Our only sure-shot opportunity of participating in this tournament again next year is against Barca, honestly.


$10(Cdn) says that we draw with Sunderland
