How they scheduled us to play on monday when we have to travel and play QF EL match in Italy.

Agree0 Disagree0

We can't have it both ways, we want the tv money and they are our paymasters. Which ever day we play on at some point the next game will be nearer or farther away on the calendar at some point. Swings and round abouts in that one, we have an extra days rest for Watford if you look at it that way.

13 Apr 2019 14:18:48
Fair point steve, but would you rather a an extra day to rest and prepare for Napoli instead.

13 Apr 2019 16:24:01
I'm happy how it is Moe mate, Watford is 0 0 anf will be very difficult game while obviously the europa league match will be difficult too we do have a 2 goal lead and if we nick an away goal you'd have to think it's game over.
If it had been my choice I'd have chosen the way it is personally.

13 Apr 2019 17:11:07
Moe i am ok with the way it is, for me, it will be harder to beat watford than to score an away goal at Napoli. But who knows what would be best really. As long a we do both, we will all be happy i suspect.

13 Apr 2019 18:25:21
As things stand we are 6th again and only a win v Watford will get us back in the top 4.

13 Apr 2019 19:35:43
In the great scheme gunner, a draw would be great, a win would be greater.

13 Apr 2019 22:46:13
I should imagine a much weakened team will be fielded against Watford.

13 Apr 2019 23:10:43
Watford, Wolves and Leicester - big test for a team with a terrible away record and conceded twice as many goals as Liverpool and City. Good luck boys and hope we do well.

13 Apr 2019 23:19:20
That would be very risky thing to do Banbury and Dick will run the risk of being crowned a fool or genius depending of the result we get.
If he goes weak and we are in next seasons europa league he puts himself under immense unnecessary pressure.

14 Apr 2019 00:35:19
BG, you are right, mustaffi will be playing. Lol. I think it will be a different team, with one striker left out and maybe myki and iwobi in. Maybe also he will play a flat back four away but i'm not sure it will be weakened, just different. Away from home, i'm not sure what a weakened team would actually look like on form showed so far. We are seeing a form of shuffling of the pack but i think that's how dick likes to do it.

14 Apr 2019 07:03:25
Yes risky but I’m now thinking our best shot at CL football is winning the Europa thingy . Our away form in the league is dreadful I’d be surprised if we won another away fixture this season.

I should imagine Ramsey, Ozil and PEA will be rested.

14 Apr 2019 08:45:31
While we have 4th place in our own hands it would be crazy to surrender to concentrate on a cup competition where a bad 90 minutes is ta ta Vienna.

14 Apr 2019 09:15:47
The schedule shouldn’t be a problem or an excuse, we have had weeks to prepare for it. it’s not like they changed it last minute. Also it’s no difference than if we were back in the champions league and had to play Sunday then Wednesday. let’s just get on with it and hope momentum carries us through. COYG.

14 Apr 2019 09:30:01
I’m going on form mate, we can’t even keep a clean sheet away from home, I doubt we will start now.

14 Apr 2019 13:29:36
I think he should pick his best team for watford, there is no time for raking risks imo. You can only look back on last away game and that team selection what did to us.
Steve and g62, you might be right about the game day if we can take advantage of tomorrow’s game and get a result.
Rotating is good but not at this stage in the league when every goal and point counts.

14 Apr 2019 13:49:00
Every goal and every point count from minute 1 of the season, he is the new tinker man which is what I don’t like, I don’t get the 5 captain thing either.

14 Apr 2019 13:54:13
I think we need to be a bit more pragmatic away from home and that means changing the team and/ or formation. We have a squad, we have suspensions, we have injuries and we have players who don't play away from home. There will be changes to try and combat all that.

14 Apr 2019 14:12:48
The 5 captains thing is because Dick is a huge Doctor Who fan and is going his favorite episode ever is where the 5 doctors all come together to over overwhelming odds and are triumphant.
