For those interested in knowing how Arsenal is coming into the match, they have a few injuries themselves. They will be without Almunia and Gallas, who were both injured last Tuesday. They will also be without Gael Clichy, Tomas Rosicky, and Johan Djourou (center back). Adrei Arshavin is of course still cup-tied.
- Although rumors were that Villarreal was a potential MLS All-Star opponent, now it looks like Atletico Madrid are possibilities. I guess that's great for the MLS All-Stars if they want to score a lot against some horrible defense!
- Please don't forget, if you are in or around Washington, show up at Lucky Bar for the match on Wednesday. They are throwing a party hosted by ESPN, so it should be crowded and a good time. But I might be the only one in a Villarreal jersey if no one shows up!
- Finally, Wenger's words on the match.
