    Here it is people. The first derby of the season, and the chance to kick Spurs when they are down. Arsenal 2nd, Spurs 14th. The chance to get the manager sacked. LET'S HAVE YOU ARSENAL!!

    I cannot ********ing wait for this one!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Not making no predictions yet!

    Is Gallas back for this one? Because he was picked for the French squad? Anyway if he isn't back I will be more than happy with Gilberto filling in at centre back.

    I hope Gallas is back as well, especially with Senderos suspended. WG should be back, it'll have been 4 weeks by then. sPuds can be tough up front.

    The game is supposed to be on FSC, I think they confirmed it during the week. See the Arsenal on TV/US Only thread.

    So if Gallas is still out do we see Gilberto as CB and Diarra as DM?

    i wouldn't be surprised to see sagna slot in at CB, and flamini remaining at right back. it might be too soon for diarra (big, big match), though arsene will most certainly have a good look in training.

    If Gallas isn't back (I'm not holding my breath), I'd expect

    Sagna -- Toure -- Gilberto -- Clichy
    ---------- Denilson -----
    Hleb ------ Fabregas ------ Rosicky
    ----- RvP -- Adebayor -----

    If Gallas is back, I imagine Gilberto moves up and Denilson comes out. Maybe the upside of Senderos being out for three games is that Denilson might get some more playing time.

    I don't expect to see Diarra yet, I want to see him settle in first.

    Can't wait :)

    I'll wait a little while for prediction and line-up. If Gilberto is at CB, I'd like to see Diaby start in midfield.

    I can really see us ripping their defence to peices. 0-4, they might get a goal depends what our back 4 look like...

    Jens Lehmann, along with Gallas, is also scheduled to get back into this game .. Who would you choose ? Lehmann over Almunia ?

    I'm going Almunia over Lehmann...With him back there I am much more at ease, especially when the other team has a corner. He doesn't get flustered when crowded

    Are we going to challenge Big Phil's red or try to get his penalty reduced...? that was quite soft... although I guess by the "letter of the law" it was a red.

    I think we should have this one 2-0 or so... although our defense is still hurt and I'm wary that berbatov has yet to explode this season, he's due for a big game :eek:

    My local cable tv does not have this match listed as LIVE.


    1855 Everton vs Manure
    2155 West Ham vs Middlesbrough

    1940 Portsmouth vs Liverpool
    2155 Sunderland vs Reading

    Manure and Liverpool took away the time slot!!! That means i cant watch this match:mad::mad: F 0ff ESPN and starsports.
    The north London derby is even better than any of the two matches, why cant they see that? :(
