    suddenly my formation doesn't even look that far out there
    Your formation's a 3-5-2 with Arteta as sole cover of the back four and Walcott as a WB.

    Can't see Arsenal leaving Westfalenstadion with anything more than a draw. Although I did say that last year and you guys got a win

    Not sure which game to watch. Liverpool's is clearly easier but yours could be a really exciting match.

    Ludogorets' campaign so far has been remarkable - I really hope they cause an upset.

    I don't think it's fickle to worry that 3 of our 6 defenders are out injured, whether they're **** or not. He's still gonna be a better LB than somebody who's not an LB :rolleyes:

    I read somewhere that the club was only formed 13 years ago, Wenger had been at Arsenal for 4 seasons at that point. Unreal.

    English football equivalent would be AFC Wimbledon competing in the Champions League.

    From their wiki:

    "Ludogorets played in Group B of the 2013–14 Europa League. They were unbeaten in the group stage finishing first in the group with five wins in six games, including both home and away victories over the prominent PSV Eindhoven and Dinamo Zagreb. Their only dropped points were a 1–1 home draw with Chornomorets Odesa. In the knockout phase, Ludogorets beat the Italian cup holders, Lazio, 1–0 away and drew 3–3 at home, for a 4–3 aggregate win, but lost 0–3 at home, 0–4 on aggregate to Valencia in the round of 16.

    In the 2014–15 Champions League, Ludogorets again won both their qualifiers, against F91 Dudelange of Luxembourg and Partizan Belgrade. In the play-off they defeated Steaua București in dramatic fashion to reach the group stage for the first time. Goalkeeper Vladislav Stoyanov was dismissed for a second yellow card in the last minute of extra time in the second leg, when Ludogorets had used all their substitutes. In the penalty shoot-out, centre-back Cosmin Moți, having converted the first penalty, went in goal and made two saves to put Ludogorets through 6–5 on penalties."



    The fact that they've beaten the likes of PSV, Zagreb, Lazio, Belgrade and now Steaua is crazy considering their stadium capacity is 8,000 (5,000 seated iirc) and they've only been in the business for thirteen years.

    I hope this has fairytale written all over it and that they don't do an Apoel and fade away.

    How the **** do they make FFP :lolwut:

    Is it a bankrolled club (e.g Monaco, Hoffenheim, Fulham, Wigan) or a team that has genuinely risen through the leagues?

    They were bought by a businessman in 2010 and have dominated Bulgarian football since.

    - Ludogorets is the second team in the world, together with FC Levadia Tallinn from Estonia, that after promoting from the second to the first level of the football league pyramid of its country, wins a treble, capturing all of the local trophies - the league, the national cup and the supercup.

    - Ludogorets is the first team in Bulgaria, that won two promotions in a row and then succeeded in achieving a treble.

    - Ludogorets became the first Bulgarian team to begin their group stage participation in European tournaments with 3 consecutive wins, when in the 2013–14 UEFA Europa League group stage they recorded consecutive wins against PSV Eindhoven (2-0), Dinamo Zagreb (3-0) and Chornomorets Odesa (1-0), without conceding a goal in any of the games.

    - After the end of the 2013–14 UEFA Europa League group stage, Ludogorets became the first Bulgarian team to record 9 wins in European competitions in a single season, as well as the first Bulgarian team to record 5 away wins in European competitions in a single season.

    - During the 2011–12 season, the club had the most effective attack in A Group, scoring a total of 73 goals.

    - During the same season, the club had the best defence in A Group, conceding 16 goals in 30 games. They bettered this in 2012–13, conceding just 13 goals in 30 games.

    I bet they get **** on at Anfield now that I've hyped them up.

    Would be hilarious.

    In all honesty, respect to them as a team - they have really gone for it and have beaten some decent sides.
    But champions league is a little different.
    An Anfield champions league game is different.

    Regardless of what they have done in their short lifespan, they are still a 4th seed team so for us to get anything less than 3 points at home tonight would be embarrassing.
