Just over 24 hours to go

And I can’t think of anything else.

It’s doing my head in, biggest game of the season, a defence maimed by injury, a potent attacking force taking on the European and Premiership Champions.

We could either pull off an unlikely result or be destroyed.

Logic says it should be the latter. As good as Gibbs has been since he was thrust into the starting line-up he’s got to keep the twinkle toed ladyboy quiet. If Silvestre plays they may as well play the retired remains of Ole Gunnar Solskjær up front, that bad is Silvestre. Rooney on a good day would be a handful for Adams and Keown. Fingers crossed Djourou is fit to give us some hope.

But hope we do have. The history of Arsenal is littered with great victories as the underdog:

Anderlecht 1970 at home in the Fairs Cup Final.

Juventus 1980 away in the CWC semi final.

Liverpool 1987

Anfield 1989

Parma 1994

Old Trafford 1998

1-0 in the Bernabau 2006

2-0 home to Juventus in 2006

2-0 in the San Siro 2008

We’ve done it before, can we do it again?
