    Forget the Everton game. We are a completely different beast at home, and Emery has got us performing so much better in the big games, home and away. I think we’ll win fairly well. I am going for 4-1.

  2. Jah son says:

    Unai “Man at yard ” Emery
    That’s what the Jamaicans call our manager. He rules at home ??

  3. Fo Sulli says:

    Since when is Owen an expert? The lad cant even string a coherant sentence together haha trust him to predict a draw as well, another anti arsenal media pundit.

      ..seems he never has a anything positive to say concerning the gunners. Lets hope we make all our detractors and naysayers eat their words tonight.

  4. RSH says:

    We will struggle more against Watford than Napoli. How strange.

  5. waal2waal says:

    Id hope to see the arsenal play composed much like we did against man utd – i hope we save our best until the last 20mins where we can show just how strong offensively we can be. i wouldn’t be surprised if cech returned tonight, we should have no problem with it as the experience he has will prove invaluable. Cech prides his history of keeping clean sheets, which is how things will pan out this evening – So *1-Nil to the arsenal with the job still to be completed by the return leg at Napoli.

    Only one goal will separate this tie and our win will have much to do with.. a [resurgent] Ozil.

  6. Doom & gloom says:

    Yeah Owen still has a chip on his shoulder when it comes to The Arsenal.prob annoyed at the criticism the scouse pickpockets got when they robbed/mugged Arsenal at the 2001 cup final in dying minutes & handball Henchoz getting away with murder.

  7. Gunnerphilic says:

    Owen is a fool and his hatred for Arsenal will still be in him even in his grave. He never has anything good to say about Arsenal. Never.

    Napoli is going to get a hiding today. Period.
