We've certainly made it hard on ourself. A big win over Hamburger is essential.
Although I think the competition in Group G this year is much better than we had last year in Group Play.
I have faith we'll do it. Although I'd like it to a clear-cut first place finish as to avoid a tough first-round draw in the knockout phase. It's a bit worrying that we've seemingly reverted to our "old Arsenal Champs League" form in the last two games. Superior play, but not able to get the results.
It's going to be very tricky indeed.
I think we will beat Hamberg by 3 goals, but in my opinion the Porto result could go either way.
We really should not be going to Porto needing a result, we need to be more professional and kill off teams when we are dominating.
I was at the game behind the goal in the first half, and still can't workout how the hell we missed those chances, they where actually harder to miss than score.
I hope we can turn it around, but if we get knocked out we can't blame no one but ourselves. The one good thing is that we play Porto away. The Emirates stadium is actually a disadvantage for us at this stage, we haven't settled and we were out sung by about 3000 CSKA fans!

I still think we should qualify. There's no excuse for not qualifying, we're not in the strongest group by any means. I think we'll go through, and whoever wins between Porto and CSKA should join us.
We should beat Hamburg at home and get a point away at Porto. That should be enough to see us through. Anyone remember how easy it was last season :(
