Back to Premier League Action today it is for the Arsenal after the 4-0 histrionics against Porto in midweek. Our opponents this tine 'round are Sunderland, as we visit the Stadium of Light today.
I'm really pressed for time, so will point you in the direction of all the stories, and on the double. First up team news, it looks like we will have Alexandre Song back for selection and Silvestre as well. Fair play to the Cameroonian, he's looked good so far this season in the opportunities presented to him. And that's seems to be all as far as team news goes. Le Prof talks about passing on his philosophy and there's a fuller match preview here.
Needless to say that we can't afford to lose this one. We will be expecting a strong showing and all three points please. Roy Keane is not the easiest of adversaries and the boys will have to do more than just show up like they did against Hull. We are a two points off the top and we'd like to be there and there abouts atleast till February or so and then look to kick on.
The game is a 1500 kickoff in the UK which makes it an evening kick off at 19.30 for viewers in India and it's live on ESPN. A couple of my mates and I are watching the game at the Sports Bar at Cosmos Mall in Marthahalli, Bangalore. It's opposite Brookefields ( HLL office). We'd like it if more Gooners, or any one else interested dropped by. We are trying to get a regular place where fans can come together to watch week in week out. So do drop by if you are interested. And oh, we checked with the management at the Sports Bar, they ARE showing our game.
And that's about all. Hope to see you at the game!
Come on you Gunners!
