Tickets are still on sale on Arsenal.com so I assume not.

Well, nothing new here. Would expect most coaches/managers have some knowledge of their opponents strategies prior to any comp they have against them. Would expect same from Arteta.

Our original adidas deal ran until 2024 so we’ve negotiated that one up a season and a half early.
Currently City earn £65m a season, Liverpool and Chelsea £60m and Spurs £30m from their kit deal.

Sure I get all that. But by it being such a long term deal, in seven years time with football inflation how much is £75m going to be worth? Nothing remotely like what it’s worth now I reckon.

Cheer up, Bernard. We might be mid-table in the Championship in 2029, chuckling heartily to ourselves about how we managed to get 75 million a year out of them.

I would hope the balance of probabilities are more likely to support my view than yours.

So we have the option of extending Saka and Saliba by extra 12 months and Martinelli by 2 years.

I too was worried that there was damage between Saliba and the club and Arteta would have to take some of the blame for that but great to see they have a good relationship.

Can only bode well for the future.

So glad the club is learning and structuring their deals and contracts to give themselves these year/2 year option. If used properly they are invaluable.
In reality Arsenal would trigger all 3 of those options if it came to it but I think deals will be thrashed out before. Saka and Saliba therefore have over 2.5 years left on their deal and Martinelli has 3.5 years left on his deal.

Kyle Walker may miss the World Cup with the injury picked up in the last game. Ben White should be in the squad anyway but the injury to Walker a player who can play RB and RCB in a 3 should really push White in to the squad.

Shame in a way as the fewer games played in the World Cup by Arsenal players, the better things are in my view. Risk of injury from playing and the possibility of tiredness in the second half of the season contribute to my opinion.

I trust MA....but I cannot understand why Soares and Nelson are on the bench and three players who will play against Liverpool are playing tonight.

Actually, just read on Sky that they are no mugs and put 6 past Roma last year....I'll defer to MA and keep my trap shut.

He wants to get the group won. Hopefully this 11 will get it done comfortably. Don't know much about the opposition but we did get beaten at home by Ostersunds the other year, so we don't want to underestimate this lot.

Disappointing finish there by Vieira, that should have been testing the keeper at least.

Both have come back from injuries recently so perhaps not quite up to full fitness

What a strike by Tierney, unlucky to see it come off the post and Nketiah makes the rebound finish look a lot easier than it was coming back to him at that pace

Pretty impressed by Bodo so far. They look well organized and their press is very good. The town of Bodo has around 45k inhabitants I think, located north of the arctic circle, so it's actually pretty impressive to produce a football team of decent European quality under those circumstances.

Vieira is the sort of player where you have fans of the other big teams jealous they weren't in for him. He was totally affordable for every big 6 club it is annoying when other clubs pick up attainable players. their fans won't have heard of him. lovely player

Nketiah has an uncanny ability to get his feet on the ball when it's played into the penalty area. Not always the cleanest of touches, but it looks like the ball seeks him out

Comfortable first half. More goals in the second would be good.

Cody Gakpo of PSV has 12 goals and 10 assists this season. We've been linked in the past, Man U heavily this summer

Martinelli preparing himself for the Pool match. He is so energetic.

Not sure playing it out from the back is something Bodo should be doing in this game, Arsenal are a different level to the teams they usually face. Looks dangerous almost every time they try it

The increase in the amount of shots we take each game this season has been remarkable. 14 shots already in this game.
