Morning all.

Arsenal v Frankfurt or I’m A Celebrity? It’s a tough choice for me because of Wrighty, one of my favourite Arsenal players of all time being in the jungle. Whether you like the programme or not or the man himself even, watching his commitment to the challenges he gets nominated for is to be admired. But that’s why he was such a good footballer. To fail was not an option he considered and when he didn’t get maximum reward last night, he was a real grump. Stroppy too. I reckon by 9.15pm I’ll be tuned into the outback.

Shkodran Mustafi:

‘You noticed from the beginning in Frankfurt that they’re a team with identity. You could see what they were trying to do and how they were trying to play. The players knew what to do, how they were moving and it’s always difficult to play against very organised teams like that and they have the individual quality to hurt you as well.’

Basically, Frankfurt are everything Arsenal are not right now. We have no identity, the players don’t seem to know what they are doing and we’re certainly not organised in any way, shape or form. A sly dig at Unai perhaps…

Unai Emery on if we’ve lost the connection with the supporters…

They are angry and they are now disappointed, but we are as well. Tomorrow we have a very big opportunity to change that and this is my wish. This is also my idea and to create a big atmosphere in Emirates with our supporters. Each match here in the Emirates with our supporters is very important. We need their support. They need it more than me because they’re on the pitch and they need to feel them backing them over 90 minutes.

He’s right, the team do need the fans support and they’d get it if the coach didn’t keep dishing up terrible performances each match day. The Emirates would have an atmosphere like and NLD if the team were playing well. Slight exaggeration perhaps but it would certainly be a much happier place than it has been. What with no away fans permitted for this one and an anticipated no show by many Arsenal fans, the atmosphere tonight could very well be pretty awful. As a friend text to me yesterday, if Freddie had replaced Unai this week, The Emirates would probably be a full house.

Unai Emery was quizzed over his future but other than saying he was focusing on tonight, he said little else. The most unbelievable, almost laughable answer he gave to another question was that the players believe in his ideas – because they show it. Perhaps in training eh…

Other news from our coach is that Granit Xhaka is in squad, or group as he calls it and could make a return tonight. Dani Ceballos is ruled out until next month and both Bellerin and Kolasinac are doubts.

Win or draw tonight and we’re through to the knockout stages, lose and Standard Liege beat Vitoria, all three clubs bar Vitoria could still go further in this competition if my maths is right. Bearing in mind our final fixture is away to Liege, anything could happen.

We’ve already beaten Frankfurt 3-0 away from home. I think it’s fair to say we rode our luck a bit that night but even so, it was a great result. We were hanging on to a 1-0 lead when the home side were reduced to ten men and then two quick goals late in the game made it look like we’d had an easy night. On the contrary. Martinez had been in great form, making a few good saves which helped prevent any of the fourteen shots Frankfurt had in the first half breaking the deadlock. Torreira had a golden opportunity to open the scoring for us but couldn’t keep his shot down. The home team continued to cause us problems at the back after the break but we clung on to our lead until the ten men of Frankfurt buckled at the end. Aubameyang Willock and Saka were our scorers on the night.

A lot has happened since that night in September though and not for the good. Frankfurt will 100% believe they can get their own back against a team more fragile than a bone china tea set on a safari trek in an old jeep without suspension and despite having none of their own fans in the stadium, they’ll be up for this game.

I suppose the the big question is will Arsenal be up for it..?

Enjoy I’m a Celebrity guys the match, with a bit of luck, it might be the Spaniard’s last…
