Weíll be going. As an exiled Gooner, though as you should all know by now I support Swindon and follow Arsenal, it is always good to see how the upper echelons play in the flesh and the stars of tomorrow in action.

I will be watching it too, the daughter is an Arsenal supporter (Swindon her 2nd team).

Last season the Arse did quite well in this competition, they beat Ipswich 2-1, beat Gills on penalties, beat Crawley 2-1 and lost 3-0 to Wimbledon.

In the Ipswich game they had just 48% possession, at Crawley just 51% possession but in the Gills game they had a whopping 68% possession and agains Dons they had 70% (but still lost 3-0).

Their passing ratio was well over 80% in each game too and in every game they had less shots than their opposition, often half the amount.

There is no doubt they will play a possession based passing game, something nobody has really played against us so far this term, be interesting how many changes we will make as I expect Ward, Gilbert, Mitchell-Lawson, East and Parsons with cameos for Dabre and Angiuar.

At the moment, with their present form, we would probably be better playing an Arsenal 1st XI rather than the U23's.

I won't be paying for this fixture either.

But I already have a season pass...

I bet the sneaky fuckers add that into their viewing figures regardless of whether or not I actually watch it.
