We’ve had two courses of vegan sausage rolls (Champions League), tonight, the meats are coming out.
The MIGHTY Rennes, a rack of well-seasoned BEEF ribs, take on the mighty Arsenal, an aggressively bloody slab of NEW YORK STRIP.
This is why people tune into football. So pull out a bottle of Tesco’s own brand ketchup, forget the cutlery, let’s wade into a messy evening of ELITE football.
The most important thing we need this evening:
Yeah, pretty straight-forward analysis today. Unai Emery needs to bring ultimate destruction to Rennes. He needs to put Ben Arfa back in his place. He needs to restore Arsenal pride after a very embarrassing away loss last week.
The French minnows won their match on Sunday. Great news for them, but the story there is they played 4 days out from an away game with us. No HUGE rest for them this time. No fresh legs. No time to plan. That’s advantage us.
The game is interesting because they are counter-attacking specialists. Arsenal has to go for 3 goals (come on, we’re not keeping a clean sheet). Absolutely possible.
It’s an international break after this. That means Emery can go wild and field anyone he deems fit to play. I’d imagine that he’ll go with something similar to the United game. All guns blazing. Play the role of the protagonists. Mix up our attacking combinations. Take advantage of having better players and two unreal finishers to finish them off early.
Should be exciting. Let’s hope we have a full house and an excited crowd. This is a big one.
Short post today. Just want to say, kudos to the comments yesterday. I pen a post about outrageous views polluting the internet and a slew of people attack Simeone as a bad tactician. You couldn’t make it up. Never change Le Grove, never change. x
