Yeah not a particular kind draw for Arsenal, but you would expect them to be able to edge it.


Also a repeat of the 2005 semi final in there too.


Dinamo Zagreb (Cro) v Austria Vienna (Aut)

Ludogorets (Bul) v Basle (Swi)

Plzen (Cze) v Maribor (Slo)

Shakhtyor Karaganda (Kaz) v Celtic

Steaua Bucharest (Rom) v Legia Warsaw (Pol)

Lyon (Fra) v Real Sociedad (Spa)

Schalke 04 (Ger) v Metalist Kharkiv (Ukr)

Pacos Ferreira (Por) v Zenit St Petersburg (Rus)

PSV (Ned) v AC Milan (Ita)

Fenerbahce (Tur) v Arsenal



Celtic should fancy their chances also, but by heck is that one long ass trek into the unknown.

Aaron Ramsey's been immense for the past 20 or so Arsenal games. I hope he's finally over that injury and can get on with his career (not to mention getting those ignoramus Arsenal fans off his back). He's Arsenal's best midfielder in 2013.


0-2 up. Wouldn't mind Gabry and Sanogo given 20 minutes.

Giroud's penalties are as handsome as the man himself.


Incredibly important result, I reckon. 0-3 up, 3 away goals, next leg at home... something incredibly bad (some would say, "Arsenalesque") would stop us from going through to the group stages now. This result might just land us a slightly better player in the transfer market. Who knows, maybe they've been waiting to see if we got through.


Anyway. Gnabry and Sanogo. Where are they?

You have to give Arsenal credit for tonight's win in Turkey. On paper a 2 legged play-off against a side that made the Europa League semis last season was extremely tricky to say the least.


But here we sit half way through the tie with Fenebache needing a minor miracle to progress. Considering the start that Arsenal made in their domestic campaign at the weekend they were under a huge amount of pressure tonight and I think It's fair to say they coped with It very well indeed.

I really do fail to understand why Sky would rather show Liverpool vs Notts county in a meaningless cup than a Champions League game. Sometimes their schedule baffles me, I don't think I'll ever understand their reasoning.



Sky are contractually obliged to show 2 games from The 2nd round of the Capital One Cup this week. it's not like they go around the world of Football and go hey we're going to show this random game this week.
