    I can't find anything definite. Wiki has the pitch at 105 x 68

    I know the feeling. I had a bad feeling for the united game and we smothered them. I was apprehensive for the Liverpool game and as the game went on i sensed a victory coming... Funny thing is just before Kane got his penalty i felt a second goal was coming from open play.

    On a side note i think we underestimated the Gooners due to their form at the time... They outplayed us that day and it hurt. I think we will be up for it this Saturday and wont take them lightly again.

    I certainly hope you're right. I do worry about Boomerang's pace though. Let's hope for a bit more match fitness for Wanyama, Rose et al after tomorrow's game. Then all systems go on Saturday!

    Well we’ve recently faced Sanchez, Lukaku & Martial followed by Firmino, Salah and Mane so I’d say good practice for facing Ozil, Auberg & Mikie. Just need to perform on the day.

    Make no mistake, the goons will be well up for this and they have some decent players. They are dangerous! But, we are the better team, in better form, with better players, at "home"! If we have the right mentality and tactics, we will win. I'm so gutted that I am missing the game. First NLD I have missed in about 12 years! But it is all to play for, win that and they are out of the top 4 race and we are in pole position!

    Come on you spurs

    Actually I was slightly wrong. They won first 6 bundesliga and Wembley game was in middle of that. They started going downhill after Real Madrid game. Anyways we’ve faced Aubameyang twice this season and not caused us major problems.i Just think Mkhitaryan Aubameyang Ozil are Honestly 3 of the laziest players in world football. With no recognised DM I think we should be able to get at them pretty easily.

    People seem to forget Aubameyang scored an outrageous goal that was wrongly rules offside, as well as scoring their goal in Dortmund. So he has scored against us already this season.

    As long as we adopt the high pressing mentality from the very start. The Man Utd game showed what an early goal does for the confidence of the team

    Hopefully Sanchez has the confidence to bounce back after a tough game on Sunday

    No. Wembley pitch is the same as the standard - 105m X 68m. We requested the same dimensions as WHL, which had a smaller pitch, and were denied. (Pitch size was found on the Premier League Official Site)

    As far as I’m concerned, there’s not really too much to be getting worried about. I expect quite an easy win. Arse no longer have the fight they once did, and are quite average. We just gave United and Liverpool a lesson in football. And they are better than Arsenal.

    Yeah, my bad. I thought wembley was bigger than the PL standard, I knew we weren't permitted to change it to WHL dimensions but I thought I'd seen we couldn't change it to PL standard. But since it is PL standard that point was moot

    There's conflicting information. Wiki lists it as 105x68 in the sidebar but 105x69 further down.

    We must have read the same article.

    It’s still to our advantage we have faced Aubameyang twice. The players won’t be facing an unknown quantity. Tbh they totally dominated Everton in 1st half and I barely noticed him apart from an offside goal. For me he’s a one trick pony granted it’s a good trick. But he’s certainly not an all round centre forward like Kane is. He plays best in a dominant team. He’s hold up play is poor and rarely scores from outside box. He is all about running in behind. But if we can pin them in his threat is almost totally negated.

    These Arsenal players will have never faced 70,000 Yids in full voice. Even though it’s the shitty early kickoff, let’s hope the crowd are really for up for it.

    I saw a crazy stat that all but 1 of his goals in Germany was inside the penalty box

    Arsenal away form is horrible currently. Regardless of Mkhitaryan & Auba , they are brittle away from home. Score the first goal , we will win this.

    Going to be there and will be shitting myself throughout. Apologies in advance to the poor sods around me...

    If we have the intensity we showed against United, or the control we showed in the 2nd half of the Liverpool game then id fancy us to win. No stupid errors and we should be fine. Lose and it's got the potential to be a disaster. 1 point clear, or 7 is a massive swing and a loss could hurt psychologically too.

    I hope they are dreading facing Kane, Dele, Sonny, Chris and maybe Lucas the same way! (y)

    Yeah I saw that as well. But wasn’t sure if that was last season or whole career. He also barely gets involved in games it’s a bit defoe like. He generally averages less than 20 touches a game. But obviously his scoring record negates him getting criticism. I think this is the main reason big clubs have never gone for him. Most big clubs want that focal point like a Kane morata Lukaku who can be a more all round number 9. Aubameyang relys on his pace and won’t be getting any quicker closer he gets to 30. Obviously because he has signed for them I’m looking for every negative. But honestly I don’t think he will be a game changer for them. Will most likely do ok as lacazette has but nothing outstanding imo.
