After a weekend in which Arsenal saw off Fulham fairly easily, it's back to things continental with the second leg of the CL play-off against Fenerbahce. Last week, if you'll recall, Club In Crisis FC defeated Fener at home 3-0 in a game that could and should have been about 10-0; Fener were...dire. Unless Fener have become remarkably better in the last six days, I would expect more of the same tonight; Arsenal have found, to put it Wenger-ly, a little bit their sharpness, and they should be able to dismiss Fener fairly easily tonight.
Of course, this being Arsenal, that's not a guarantee - and to reinforce that point, Wenger has already said there'd be no significant squad rotation, so expect much the same in the way of lineup as we saw at the weekend, and no youth infusion, unless Arsenal score one or two in the first half maybe.
Here's hoping for an injury free game, and comfortable passage into the Champions League. Don't forget the rules, kids: Let's leave all talk of/links to illegal streams out of the discussion, let's be cool to each other, and let's not worry about transfer stuff for a couple hours, OK?
