Arsenal are gearing up for our first Champions League fixture on September 16th against Dinamo Zagreb and our final 32 player squad has now been announced. This total is the normal 25-man squad plus 7 “B-List” youngsters which can be made up of youngsters that have been at the club for at least 2 years.
Arsenal and luck! Would you Adam and Eve it? As if we had not already had enough bad luck this week, with a dodgy offside robbing us of a vital win over Liverpool, a terrible away draw with Tottenham for our first Capital One Cup tie and then getting one of the two teams we really wanted to avoid in the Champions League.
The Champions League draw has finally been done, and are draw could turn out to be trickier than it looks.
We have been drawn alongside Bayern Munich, which is obviously not the nicest team to come up against, but Olympiakos and Dinamo Zagreb are two of the teams you would be happy to see drawn in our group.
Well Arsenal fans, it is the Champions League group stage draw today and after the Gunners got one of the worst possible draws in the Capital One Cup earlier this week, we could do with better luck this evening.
Okay Arsenal fans, I may be jumping the gun here, because the draw for the Champions League group stage games has not been made yet. So there is still a chance that the Gunners get some luck and are handed a decent tie for matchday one, preferably on our home turf of the Emirates stadium.
There is a lot of optimism and belief among the Arsenal fans that the future is looking bright for the club. Arsene Wenger and the players share this confidence and we all have good reason to do so after producing the most balanced and impressive football of any club in the Premier League since the turn of the year.
