No time to get down a post of any kind today. Just time to say that we are very depleted heading into this one, with Nasri and Diaby missing as well to our already large injury list. Like my mate quipped, it's almost like we miss Eboue now! Tough times, tough times indeed.
It's Cesc's first one in charge, however. And I really think it will be a good game for us today. A good result here at home will set us up well for the fiercer battles ahead, the first of those being Chelski on Sunday.
As usual with the CL kick-offs it's a 19.45 kicoff at Ashburton Grove, London time and that is a 01.15 for those of us in India and it's on Zee Sports in this region.
So here's to the start of the Cesc era, and long may he reign!
Come on you Gunners!!
