...But we have a rich enough owner to be financially doped and compete with them. Just because Fiszman on his death bed sold out to a multi billionaire who won’t put his own money into the club and Chelsea and City’s owners will, is that really enough to make them “cheaty and horrible”?
Why bring Danny Fiszman's dying wishes into it? I imagine he might have been thinking more about his family at that point than the future of a football club, and who wouldn't have done the same? Your point about Kroenke's lack of personal investment in the team stands well enough without mentioning Danny, a man who did a lot for Arsenal.

“At this moment, lying on the bed, sick and remembering all my life, I realize that all my recognition and wealth that I have is meaningless in the face of my imminent death ...... oh hang on bollocks I don’t wanna sell it to an American “

That’s precisely how it should have worked Hoy

Sarri ? Would be hugely depressing. The only thing I think when his name is mentioned are his hysterics on the touchline when his own goalkeeper refused to come off. However it’s been mooted in Italy since Christmas he’s joining Arsenal

I think it’s of very high probability we change the manager this summer regardless of results.

Kroenke will want to divert attention from his ownership and takeovers by creating an impression that a moment of change has occurred.

We're a 4/1 shot for the Europa. That seems about right.

If we win, don't you think the fans will rally behind Arteta and Kroenke will be drawing even more trouble on himself if he changes managers? Do you think he cares?

If we don't win, especially if we don't win tonight, I think Arteta will be gone very soon. A pity, but patience is not in long supply as we know, and Arteta's selections haven't been helping those of us who do want to defend him.

What's the best guess as to who would be owner if Fiszman didn't sell?

I too hope City win the final. Must admit I don’t mind City. For every trophy they win it means Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham haven’t won it.

We also have to remember when calling Chelsea and City “cheaty horrible clubs”, Kroenke has comparable wealth to Abramovich and the Kroenke family has comparable wealth to Sheikh Mansour. The only difference is Kroenke won’t spend his own money on the club he owns but Abramovich and Mansour will. Is that really enough to make them “cheaty”, even if it makes us jealous?

City have spent completely beyond the club's means. Literally hundreds of millions. Chelsea work within revenues generated by the club these days but in the first 7 or 8 years of Abramovic's ownership they did the same. "Financial doping" really is a very good description.

Being "financially doped" has its benefits. We just have "financially doped" owners who are a bit stingy,

Atilla the Hun probably would also object to being classed with Trump (not to mention Hitler and Vlad):

"He was a man born into the world to shake the nations, the scourge of all lands, who in some way terrified all mankind by the dreadful rumors noised abroad concerning him. He was haughty in his walk, rolling his eyes hither and thither, so that the power of his proud spirit appeared in the movement of his body. He was indeed a lover of war, yet restrained in action, mighty in counsel, gracious to suppliants and lenient to those who were once received into his protection."

Indeed David a must win this time. Actually 2 years on being in another EL final is commendable if it happens.

Leno, Bellerin, Holding, Mari, Xhaka, Partey, Saka, Smith Rowe, Ødegaard, Pépé, Aubameyang

Not certain who plays where in that line up

We must come out firing on all cylinders. No holding back. Getting the first goal early is key. 3-0 is a likely score.

Xhaka injured in warm up! Tierney starts. Let’s hope that works out then.

It is such a rare occurrence that a player gets injured in the warm up but it seems to happen to us a disproportionate amount of times even considering how much our injury record has improved.

Ceballos suspended and Xhaka injured in warm up, I have a good feeling about this, gods are smiling on us.

Bellerin has been really poor so far. Lost the ball in terrible positions on multiple occasions.

If that’s the first goal we win it! But all the fans would be dead.

Worth the cost.

I worry whenever he has the ball. He is no longer good enough. Where was he when Saka needed help earlier?

We've not started that well, very loose in possession. Yet again, teams put on a high press and we don't put any balls over the top to turn their defence.
A high press from the midfield means the defence has to also come higher to avoid huge gaps between the lines, which means space in behind.

Horrible to watch our passing around the back third and failing to find a way out. Just plain scary at times.
