    2nd Leg - Arsenal lead 2-0 on aggregate.
    Venue: EMIRATES FORTRESS
    March 15, 4:05pm FOX Sports 1 for some of you Americans
    March 16, 7:05am AEDT Optus/etc for Australians

    Lets keep the good times rolling, 2-0 up, hopefully the Boss doesn't take any big risks with the line up because the last thing we can afford is to get turned over by Outer Milan at home.

    2-1 with goals to Eddie and Mikhi is my bet, and hopefully Nelson doesn't get the shits.

    LET'S GO ARSENAL!

    Pretty/ fairly/ sort of confident we should walk through this. We would really have to ******** up to lose this. Could it happen..........(I don't need to answer that do I). I'm gonna say we need to prep for the next round. 1-0 to the good COYFG! Ospinaaaaa MOTM!

    Haven't seen the video of today's presser yet, but I saw Wenger's quotes and it seems that everyone has passed fitness test to be in the squad, except for Laca (and Santi of course). That means that we might have a chance of playing our most familiar (reliable?) back line, including Bellerin, Mustafi, Kos & Monreal.

    COYG!!!!

    p.s. Nice that we're on FS1 this time... that means HD for me... woohoo!

    p.p.s. Not a bad thread title but it's no Bohemian Rhapsody.

    Wenger said that Europa League is tougher than ever.
    There are lots of things I disagree with this man on, but not with this statement.

    I wanted to do them the other way around but with the form we were in I couldn't take the risk :p

    I'll be most annoyed if we lose the match but win the tie, if thats how my streak ends.

    Hopefully this is more like the first leg and less like the 2nd leg vs Ostersund.

    Saw something that said Arsenal had lost their last six home CL knockout ties :eek:. Checks out by my math.

    Streaks were meant to be broken tho.

    Yeah, let's pray for that. Didn't work out well the last time.

    If we haven't learned our lesson from how we approached that match, or for that matter from watching ManU's loss yesterday, then our team should go sit in the corner with a dunce cap on.

    Ospina; Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal; Ramsey, Xhaka, Wilshere; Ozil, Mkhitaryan, Welbeck. Subs: Cech, Iwobi, Chambers, Maitland-Niles, Kolasinac, Elneny, Nketiah

    Looks like 4-1-4-1 again.

    Id be more confident if we hadn’t lost 2-0 at home to Osterund.

    Cheer up man, @SaratogaGooner says we got this one. :D

    p.s. Lets just hope our fans show up and are vocal. Looks like the Milanos are going to be making some serious ruckus.

    Emirates looks to be reasonably full - an improvement over the last few home games. hard to gauge how many Milan fans are there as the game kicks off.

    Yikes, nice WAKE-UP call in first minute. Shot was 12" away from 1-0 to Milan. Jeez

    Great, Kos is down with back problems after what appeared to be very minor contact on his header. But I know from experience that backs can be hyper-sensitive to the littlest of tweaks. I once did mine by making the bed!

    I wonder if Kos was having this back issue before the match? Maybe he wasn't really 100% fit.

    On comes the wonderful Callum Chambers.

    All the more reason why we need to go out offensively and try to score more goals. The last thing I want to see us do is sit back and protect this lead.

    I honestly can’t tell if a ton of Milan fans came over or if the only coat English people own is black. If I didn’t know this was in London, I’d think it’s being played in Milan with all the fans wearing black.

    There are quite a few ACM supporters. They've opened the whole corner (4 sections?) so I'm guessing 4-5000?

    Anyone else notice this annoying pulsating crowd noise? Like when you drive down the highway too fast with the rear window open a bit.

    Danny Welbeck might never score again.

    1-0 Milan in the 36th minute. Are we surprised? Great strike to be fair.

    Welbeck drew a penalty! That defender is an idiot, there's no way he was going to score!

    EDIT: Just kidding, Rodriguez didn't do anything!
