They may not be at home but Zurich fans have made a beautiful TiVo behind one goal. The players on the field. Arsenal In a stylish nautical number.
The match takes place this evening in St. Gallen because there are some athletics going on in Zurich.
Arsenal have made seven changes since the weekend. joke starts Arsenal And Arteta told him to do his talking on the pitch to show he can rival Gabriel Jesus. It would be fun to see what Marquinhos has to offer as well.
And for something a little different… Karen Carney, Guardian Guardian, on leading the government’s review of women’s soccer.

Arsenal are back in European play. They missed continental football last season but Mikel Arteta led them to fifth and qualifying for Thursday night’s fun.
Arteta aspires high and wants to win European LeagueA bold claim to play the opening match of the group stage against Zurich. The Swiss champions have failed to win their first seven league matches this season, so he should be ready to pick a star-studded Arsenal side.
The last time they won a European Cup was when Alan Smith beat Parma in the 1994 Cup Winners’ Cup. Gabriel Jesus is the newest player in his No. 9 team and aims to lead them to some glorious trophies, a striker who brought a winning mentality from Manchester City and aims to prove it in Europe .
In times like these we look at who we might know from Zurich’s side. Let me begin (and end) with Blerim Džemaili who spent time in Bolton in the late 20th century. Admittedly, he never played a league game for the club but really enjoyed it in Lancashire. He went on to play for Napoli, so maybe Big Sam was wrong about the midfielder. At 36, he’s still going strong.
Kick-off: 5.45pm GMT.
