The great thing about sports is also the horrifying thing about sports. Games come fast and furious. Didn't like the last game? Great! Forget it! Here's a fresh new game to get excited about! But then, ugh, new game not this again we saw this the other day please make it get better.

Anyway, putting all that angst aside, Arsenal are actually in decent shape in their Champions League group; six points from three games has them one point behind today's hosts, and three points ahead of Olympiacos. A point here would be great, three would be fantastic; any sort of result will see Arsenal in good shape to qualify with two games left in the group.

When pondering how to approach this match, I'm going with faith; I think Arsenal will get a result. Don't make me look stupid, Arsenal.

NO SANTOS TODAY! NO SANTOS TODAY!

Y'all know the rules: No talking about illegal streams, keep any images below 300px, be cool to each other. I'd like to specially emphasize this last rule if things go as they have gone recently. Losing or playing badly does not entitle you to be a munch. Don't be a munch.
