    I know Arsenal are a terrific side. And we have lost 3 on the bounce. But surely with the quality we have, we must have some chance tomorrow. There seems to be a lot of negative predictions. Even Tim Spiers reckons we'll lose 4-2.
    I'm sure if we perform the way we all know we Can, then we can get a point or 3. Or is it just me ?

    Given that neither side have been ahead at half-time in a game yet this season, no reason to suggest that we can’t still be in with a chance come the last 20 minutes.

    I fancy us for a point...

    Of course we have a chance. If we can play to the standards we were setting in September we can get something. I really hope the players have more belief than the majority of the supporters.

    Lets be honest it will be difficult. I've watched Arsenal a couple of times this season on Sky, and for 70 minutes they've been bang average. But for 20 minutes they've been absolutely brilliant, and if they have one of those brilliant 20 minute spells they could take the game away from us. But then you think, well if we can be in the game, weather a storm maybe, then who knows? I think it's absolutely crucial we take any chances we get, and ideally get the first goal.

    Not a prayer. Arsenal are on a different level and will destroy us.

    Wrighty's preview. He's confident but quite complimentary about Wolves and realises our threat. He does end it with a 3-1 win prediction for the Gunners though. Can't blame him for that though.

    Couldn't call this if I tried.
    We could get rolled over 3-0, steal it with a 1-0 or fight out a honourable 2-2 draw.
    Just loving the journey !! :)

    Exactly. Arsenal will not be taking this game as a given win like some of our fans are.

    If we can come away with a bit of respect after being beaten then that will at least be something.

    It’s gonna be a very tough game but we have a great team that will fight tooth and nail. I gotta funny feeling that we’re gonna beat ‘em. Yes ... we absolutely do have a chance. UTW!

    We've only played poorly once (v Watford) sport far this season. Look how many chances we created last week against a champions league side. Surely if the defence are switched on tomorrow and don't gift them a couple of quick goals. We might actually take a couple of ours for a change. I know it's all ifs and buts. But let's try and stay positive before a balls been kicked

    It's football, anything can happen on the day.

    All good things come to an end, and this also applies to bad. ;) :)

    All things equal, not really. But football isn’t like that, is it? All it takes is a sending off for Arsenal, a wonder goal from Neves, Arsenal hitting the post 4 times rather than them sneaking in- many variables. We have to wish or hope for something unusual to happen, or what’s the point? Football can serve up strange results- remember we drew there with 10 men a few years ago.

    I agree with Jade's realistic, yet positive post. Who knows?
    Like Trigger from Only Fools and Horses would say.. Who knows?

    Bookies have us 4/1 to win so don't know why anyone would think we have no chance.

    Of course we have a chance, but we will probably lose.

    The Gunners are definitely favourites for this one but who knows we could nab a point, and if Waggy’s elephant takes a day off and the football gods are favourable we could even beat the blighters for the first time in nearly 40 years, it would be seen as an upset but is not that far fetched.

    Tbf if we take our chances, cut out the errors at the back and play at our best we could walk away with all 3 points.
    There are lots of variables-
    The ref could make a difference, the weather could make a difference, but if we go into the match thinking of a defeat then we will lose.
    Be loud, be proud, and who knows!

    Okay it is ancient history but at the end of the seventies we beat an Arsenal side of Pat Jennings, David O'Leary, Liam Brady and Frank Stapleton three times in a row in the old First Division.

    October 14th 1978 ( a ) 1-0 Mel Eves
    February 24th 1979 ( h ) 1-0 King John

    Then on September 29th 1979 a week after stuffing Manure 3 -1 at Molineux we won 3 -2 at Highbury with goals from Andy Gray who got 2 and Kenny Hibbitt. Of course between winning in February and again in September we did lose an FA Cup Semi to them at Villa Park by 2 -0 !

    Everyones got a chance in every game. When folk right it off as a given is hilarious, just ignore the fact of unpredictability in a sport.

    Go on lads give it ago UTW

    I think we will get done over by 3 or 4 unfortunately. Then bounce back over our next few fixtures.

    I remember being in the wrong end at Highbury when Andy Gray scored those 2. Celebrated like crazy, and still lived to tell the tale. Ahhh, happy days :D

    We’ve already played Spurs, City and United and competed in every game so I’m not sure where talk of a thrashing is coming from.
    They’re a brilliant team but we’ll give them a game tomorrow.

    We have more than a chance. They have been shambolic at times at the back especially first half, if we can defend properly they are there for the taking on the counter attack

    We can win, lose or draw until the result comes in so I'm standing with edge on this one. 2-0 to us because we know we can.

    I just think we’re lacking a bit of bite in the final 3rd, we simply have to take the chances that come our way. If we don’t we’ll really struggle & can see a 2/3 nil loss.

    Started reading the thread and was going to say exactly the same as your first para. Play to our potential, cut out the defensive mistakes and take some of our chances. If we do all this we will win.
