Good morning ladies and gentlemen, and of course welcome along to this ‘Game On’ thread which will take us through every twist and turn of the game against Arsenal.
A week after our rather notable goalless draw at Old Trafford it’s yet another early start for the benefit of the TV cameras, with BT Sport again selecting our game for live coverage.
That 0-0 draw last week was followed up by a safe passage through to the next round of the League Cup after seeing off Northampton Town 4-1, with new signing Florian Thauvin impressing on his home debut. You can see what Bet O’Clock reckon the odds of Thauvin proving to be a thorn in the side of The Gunners by taking a look at the link.
The question now will obviously be whether he can come close to replicating the form he managed against a League Two side when he faces sterner opposition in the form of Arsenal.
I’ll miss the match completely as I’m at work from pretty much the moment the game kicks off but I’ll be checking back her for updates so keep those comments rolling.
For those at the game make sure you have a good one and for those not at the game or who aren’t able to catch BT Sport please remember to share links in the comments below.
Team news to follow.
Howay the lads!
