Arsenal (Away) 22nd May

for the first time in a long time there is no pressure or need to do anything here.

Hopefully the team relax and enjoy the game and go out with a decent performance.

I don't have any great expectations and after getting the win last night I'm really not that bothered either!

Frank has said he will take the game seriously but change a few players.

Players I'd think might get a go would be Tom Davis and Ben Godfrey, maybe Kenny in place of Coleman.  Could give Branthwaite a game but I wouldn't bring both him and Godfrey in.

                        Pickford

Kenny        Godfrey   Keane      Mykolenko

            Iwobi         Allan      Dele

Gray                 DCL              Richarlison

Dele needs to get given a start after his performance in the last game, and with Iwobi and Dele in I'd rather have Allan working the defensive side than Doucoure who gave the ball away a lot against Palace.

 Final day of the season throws up some weird results some times, Arsenal desperately need to win whilst we not only have a terrible away record but nothing to play for.

With that I'll say that we'll win 2-1

DCL and Richarlison

Glad to be done with this season!

15th is still there to play for. Southampton plays Leicester and I can see them struggling. I feel we'll really struggle against Arsenal though. I can imagine our players are mentally and physically drained after yesterday so I'm not expecting much from this one.

How good is it that we go into tomorrow without a care in the world? 15th would be nice though.

It’s brilliant, I’ve finally managed to get back a decent sleep pattern, since the Brentford games I was waking early every morning and thinking of what would happen.

Great to go into the game with no expectations.

Result doesn’t matter but I hope Lampard sets us up to have more of the ball but also giving some of the other guys a run.

                       Pickford 

Iwobi      Keane        Holgate        Myko 

           DVB                      Davies 

Gray                  Dele                Richarlison 

                          DCL

Dobbin & Gordon to get some minutes hopefully. Davies might not be fit enough but would like to see him get minutes, Allan in for him if need be.

I think we will see dele, Donny, price, dobbin, branthwaite, Kenny, Davies,
 

wouldn’t surprise me if we win. 

Got to play a strong side or Spurs, and Chelsea, will be complaining to the prem about us giving Arsenal an easy entry into champs league and Euro's.

 We will play a strong side but it will be a side that wouldn’t be the choice if we needed to keep a clean sheet and work like mad. Dele Donny etc.

Actually thought Donny has a bit of graft in him when I’ve seen him.

I'd like to see Begovic, Davies, Welch, and possibly Price all start. That's not suggesting we field a week team since they've all been on the bench in recent games.

He does but not proven to be an in the trenches type of player… he could be but I wasn’t screaming for him to play.

Yeah I mean we haven’t been able to see a lot of him but in his Ajax days he was. Just a shame because he could have been exactly what we needed in midfield.

That's the thing with end of season games - you can't rely on other teams going full throttle for you - We are putting out a weakened team and no surprise if the likes of Brentford and Newcastle do something similar today - just giving squad members and youth a run out. Thank fuck for that come back on Thursday.  Lucky for Spurs they have Norwich, imagine if they had a tough fixture, they would be pretty pissed at us putting a weaker team out. 

Anyway - luckily is not our problem today😁

Our season finished on Thursday, this match not going to feel like much more than a friendly. After the release of all that nervouse energy on Thursday, players will well and truly have one eye on that beach now. Not expecting a great deal to be honest.

Happy with this. Really glad to see DCL and Dele get the starts, and good to see Davies back out there.

Frank said some players who hadn't had the opportunity would get starts. Good on him rewarding their efforts on the training field. Team effort. I thought Begovic captain, interesting.

Hits his sleeve or am I seeing this wrong?

It’s does but he makes a motion towards it. No issue with it being given but how they didn’t even look at it in the man city game is disgusting

Anyone saying it’s a handball so we shouldn’t be upset is missing the point. If anything, it caught more of his sleeve than Rodri’s. Is it a handball? Sure. Would it have been given to us? Absolutely not.
