      Alisson and Thiago both doubtful for tomorrow.

      F**k.

      I hope my fears about Adrian don't come to fruition.

      Hopefully they're fit.

      Thing is, if not ruled out at this point, and we're leaving it late, there's a pretty high chance of at least Alisson playing, if you ask me.

      Just reading it now, says nature of injury unknown. All the beat writers posted at the same time. Thiago trained Friday I thought. Makes me wonder if it isn't an injury per se.

      Can we agree to stay positive about Adrian on here. He has done good things fkr us along with making some mistakes, but let's back him.

      If Thiago is out I guess we see Fab, Gini and Keita as the midfield three, or Minamino with two of those and Gomez back at center back.

      Hopefully they can play

      EDIT: In that Friday training video, the short-sided game had Kelleher and Karius as the two goalkeepers (Adrian was with the other starters from the League Cup game, doing recovery).

      EDIT 2: I can't type.

      Bullshit. Allison will play and I’d bet Thiago will too.

      No, think they both missed Friday's training but both done interviews on the same day.

      Maybe mind games to make Arsenal a bit over confident before the game, it’s happened a few times no? We have doubts then they are in the starting line up...

      Thought Adrian made some good saves vs Lincoln.
      I'd be shitting my pants if heard Karius was playing.
      Hopefully Ally lines out come game night.

      Adrian playing is a bit of an issue to be honest. Arsenal will be playing for the smash and grab as ever under Arteta and their chances just went up of catching our keeper out.

      Dont want to see Karius named in the squad either!

      Either way we have to start getting the first goal against these then their sh*t house plan of sitting on their box and counter attacking once a half goes out the window.

      Adrian in 17 starts for the club—-2 clean sheets— 8 times givin two or more goals

      Karius in 17/18 33 starts—-16 clean sheets—9 times given two or more goals

      Both had mares against a Madrid. I dare say Adríán has had the better team in front of him.

      This isn’t to promote one over the other but more to the fact that we may want to consider looking into a proper back up before the window closes.

      We win this and we’ve already sent a serious message that we are here to retain it now that City have slipped... 6 point gap with this team and engine is HUGE! And they play Leeds next who will go at them just as hard as Leicester...

      Must win tomorrow for me, beat the pretty boys tomorrow and bring them back down to earth and distance ourselves from the rich boys, would be a perfect Monday, and I’d go into Thursday relaxed, if we’re gonna win one make it tomorrow’s.

      Would expect the same again, Bummeryang to veer off on the FB, hit him down the channels/long balls. And park the bus inbetweentimes.
      Just need to be patient. We owe these after a few losses.

      Nice to see Citeh balls things up at home. Apparently Mendy and Garcia were sh*te at the back. Hilarious $$$$$$ :)

      The penalties given so far this season are putting defenders in a very unfair situation. The ball hits the hand/arm when almost in a challenge with lierally no time to react and VAR comes back with a penalty.

      Its a difficult one to get consistent decisions as is often the case in football. Lets hope we don't get on the wrong end of a contentious hand ball decision.

      Would think possibly every club could be on the wrong end of one of these before season  out

      All referees should show a bit more common sense, than giving a penalty every time the ball hits someone on the arm. There is an obvious difference between ball to hands & blatant hand ball. Anyhow a win against Arsenal tomorrow night well and truly on the cards.

      Accidental hand ball is now given as a penalty. If the ref or VAR judge that a player is using his arms to make himself bigger in the area then a penalty is given. It is when a player simply can't react because he's in close proximity and a penalty is given is causing a level of unfairness.

      Could even see players flick the ball up against players arms in the box. Whole thing needs reassessed.
