difficult one to call; if arsenal hadn't of played that game midweek i would fancy your chances. but that win in milan is sure to have given them a huge boost. perhaps not a stuffing but a comfortable 2-0 is on the cards i think. although the absence of walcott will be a boost for you.

I think we will win but we have to watch out for Scharner at set peices as he is good against Arsenal.

If results go our way, come 5pm tonight we could find ourselves in second spot in the league table, a position that would set us up nicely for next week's clash with promotion rivals Walsall, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.

The last time I was thinking like this with full on confidence was prior to the Blackpool game in December, what a
