FS2 = 618.
First place in the group is hugely important. Consider the possible opponents if results were decided today, ranked by ELO scores (from Football Database; for reference Arsenal is #6, BVB is #8, Chelsea is #9) Remember, association protection exists for the round of 16, so we couldn't play e.g. Man City this round.
Bayern Munich - #1
Barcelona - #2
Real Madrid - #3
PSG - #4
Atletico Madrid - #5
Bayer Leverkusen - #11
Zenit St. Petersburg - #23
Olympiakos - #20
AC Milan- #25
Schalke 04 - #28
Galatasaray - #38
Given the difference in strength between those two pots, winning our group means a Arsenal will be SIGNIFICANTLY more likely to make the quarterfinals. Even the worst possible draw from pot 2 (Bayer Leverkusen) is probably better than the best possible draw from pot 1 (Atletico Madrid).
I will reserve all scenario speculation until we qualify for the knock out stages, but I will say that despite going out in the round of 16 each of the last 3 seasons, there have been some spectacular performances each of those 3 years:
Arsenal 2-1 Barcelona . . . Koscielny's coming out party, Jack was the man, Arshavin's strike
Arsenal 3-0 Milan . . . I mean, once the 3rd went in, you really thought we would pull it off
Bayern 0-2 Arsenal . . . An outstanding team effort produced a consolation win that turned our entire domestic season around
Wenger: "Southampton had more possession than us? Tottenham had more possession than Man City..." Priceless!
What I would like to see:
Santi Ozil Rosicky
Nacho Merte Kos Sagna
What I expect to see, with Walcott getting another 30 minute or so run out late:
Santi Ozil Ramsey
Gibbs Merte Kos Sagna
Does anybody know if there will be a replay of the match, and at what time. Thnx
Last day of the work week, seems like a good day to walk over to Fado for a half at least.
You gotta love your boss when he lets you go a little early so you can catch the game. COYG!
Arsenal: Szczesny Sagna Mertesacker Koscielny Monreal Flamini Ramsey Rosicky Ozil Wilshere Giroud

Anybody have a good stream? Seems like wiziwig.tv is down right now
Starting Lineup: SZCZ Sagna Mert Kos Monreal Flam Ramsey Rosicky Ozil Wilshere Giroud
I know Ian Wright is an Arsenal legend, but I cannot stand him.
Here's a seriously excellent 720p stream:
The commentary team on the feed im watching give our team NO RESPECT. Teams don't fear Giroud. Still haven't passed a test. The team lacks "steel".
F*ck them. Can't wait til we take the league.
That was easy.
That was easy
that was fast
How far into the game was that?
BAMF! Jackey boy!
Guys if you need a stream seriously watch the one I posted, no offense to IU Gunner's but it's much better quality
Only downside is it's Andy Townsend
