Fenerbahce throw away a 2-goal lead to lose 3-2 at Konyaspor.
An away win at Fener on Wednesday night is now the minimum requirement, anything less would be a disastrous start for us. There's definately light at the end of the weekend's disappointing tunnel, folks.
Get an equally poor result at Fener on Tuesday and most of our season will be done because who really cares about Europa league? Do we really have reason to believe this depleted squad will win in Turkey?
If you ask me that is less than a 30% chance.
Let's hope we will have Gibbs and Sagna fit for Wednesday, without those 2 we would be in bigger trouble.

Wenger is now reaping his reward for being too clever with his money in the transfer market, a couple fresh new faces (I don't count a Ligue 2 freebie as new signing btw) on the bench today could have been the difference between the 3 points home banker and a damaging defeat to a relegation fodder like Villa.
Wenger deserved this defeat badly for negligence of duty and failing to act decisively on what's glaringly obvious to most fans - fresh new faces always lift everyone at the start of the season.
