    Yup. Can't imagine this being an enjoyable or comfortable watch (or, in my case, checking text updates) this evening... :S

    I'm seeing lots of confidence on Twitter. I can't quite believe the arrogance when we've lost 5 semi-finals on the trot.

    We can and probably will fuck this up...again.

    Emery will rip us a new one. Villareal might not be as good as they were in the Riquelme years but they're a very decent footballing side.

    It's more the footballing gods that will get us imo. Just seems fitting that it's Emery to put the boot in.

    Surely Arteta will get the chop if you lose?

    You always knew Emery was destined to come back, i thought it as soon as we were all out of the group stages, if not before.

    Expect him to win, he's a Europa League master, and we were a bit mean to him in the end i guess, so in this instance we are the "bad guys" and as Dougs says, footballing gods will win.

    That would worry me considerably what with Mourinho being out of a job, and our owners being stupid.

    I'm not nervous. Guaranteed we're getting knocked out this round. Far too much baggage outside of the pitch alongside with Arteta being out of his depth or at least not being given proper advice.

    Doom and gloom!

    We can do this. I'd love to have a cup final to look forward to.

    Yep I am doom and gloom unfortunately. Granted we've had some great runs but at the moment I feel at an all time low. Probably on par with when we got beaten by Birmingham City in the League Cup.. I'll never live that down.

    Nothing at all against Arsenal but hoping for a Villarreal win, especially at this time , we need the little guys to get some success.
    That’s them jinxed now.

    Quite the experimental line-up…

    It's a bit more conventional than UEFA's interpretation imo. Xhaka LB, ESR in front and Pepe as the false 9. So Pep.

    Almost as good as the Flamini, Toure, Senderos, Eboue defence that beat them 1-0 at Highbury!

    Yeah, I'm not sure about this starting XI. I'd play Saka at LB as we have more options further forward.

    I clearly know more about football than Arteta so he should be listening to me really!

    At least they have the decency to not give us any hope.

    Took Villarreal 5 minutes to work out what user evild_edd, and all Arsenal fans everywhere, clearly did know but crucially, what Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta overlooked.

    No panic, we can bring Willian on if things don’t get better

    United game is entertaining so far but its hilarious that roma are technically winning the tie at the moment, they've barely had an attack

    Bad ebening going from bad to worse, but maybe that's Arteta done.
