Cazorla and Jack need to orcestrate tonight.

Dropping Verm was an interesting choice by AW, I’d want to see how it pans out before I pass judgement



id of dropped verm but id of started rosicky too


Was hoping Rosicky would have been back

jack jack jack

Me too, but look at that fucking cavalry off the bench. Jesus.


Rosicky, Gervinho, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Podolski: All capable of changing the game as they have shown in the past.

Vermaelen, Monreal: Able to shore up the team if we need to ride the game out.


Wtf, where’s that bench come from? Think my brain’s been asleep for quite some time! Had’nt thought we’d could have had a game changer bench like that! My brain needs to wake up from being pessimistic! Touching wood.

Nate Brown

Hope to see a good amount of Pololski in the second half, although that starting 11 isn’t anything to complain about either.


Wilshere was kinda poor the last time out. How he just walks back into the team is beyond me. Considering Rosicky was so damn good.

You don’t fix what isn’t broken ffs!


I’ve not seen such a strong bench in AW’s time!

Chopra gooner

I thought we’d start with Rosicky and Monreal…

john jensens goal

Rosicky’s hamstring must be a bit tight…..


I thought we’d start with Rosicky and Monreal and Podolski…


Poldi !!! was mußt du eigentlich diesem froschesser noch beweisen?
geh zu Juve ,da wird leistung noch anerkannt,hier wirst du nur verarscht!!
er kennt nur seine eigenen landsleute eben (froschesser)


Would have liked Podolski to start.


Strong Bench


Wtf wenger?

Where’s Monreal, rosicky, poldi? They should all be starting. I don’t endorse this line up but heck…..COYG!


0 : 2


Its missed chances like that one by Giroud that will come back to haunt us.


Lets hope jack benefitted from the runout on saturday and is able to put in the kind of performance we know he can! Not suprised to see Vermaelen dropped again, we need per BFG-iness to deal with fellaini.


This Wenger not wanting to disturb the system (which only works with Rosicky) is bull, Poldi/Ox deserve that spot if Rosicky is not fit. Especially considering how poor Wilshere was last game. Not happy he just walks into the team.

Arsene Wenger

I can’t win can I? If we are winning and the team has finally found balance after an agonising 30 weeks and I decide not to turn the system on its head, I am berated by fans. If I change the system and things go wrong, I am berated by fans for changing a winning formula.

Just let me do my job.


Seriously dude. Do you have your own name?


Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Arteta, Wilshere, Cazorla, OX, Podolski

I wanted this. oh well.

Arsene Wenger

Yes, I have been in this job for sixteen years but I have never tried to start 10 men. Interesting…


Thank god you don’t pick the lineup-There’s only 10 in that you goon!

Arsene Wenger

I have sprung a surprise. Many of you thought that I would start Podolski, Monreal and Rosicky (and so did I until a couple of minutes ago), but Moyes probably thought that as well. I have been in this job for sixteen years and I know I have to be unpredictable.


I feel sad for podolski. Wenger is playing some kind of game with him.

Giroud's perfectly chiseled face

Doesn’t he require surgery in the summer? I think it’s best for Podolski and Arsenal in the long term that we don’t unnecessarily overuse him.


Yep let’s all hope poldi understands that too or AW has already made it clear how he is to use him for remainder of season. I dread the thought of an unsettled podolski in the summer transfer window. I like the guy.


wenger hat ein problem !! Poldi ist kein froschesser.
egal !! für mich ist poldi der beste finisher.

Giroud's perfectly chiseled face

Was hoping TR7 would start over Jack. Regardless, here’s hoping that if it is scoreless after an hour, Ox and Poldi can slice through their tired legs. Glad to have genuinely threatening options from the bench.


With God al tins are possible! We shal win d match by God’s grace….


Maybe when he gets over his fear of flying and comes back to manage!


Not a bad team set up, but my only complain is Fabianski that left out of the starting XI.


Injured mate. Kicked in the ribs


Would have preferred nacho for Gibbs and Podolski over Wilshere but will reserve judgement til we see the game!


Gibbs with podolski or nacho with cazorla combinations looked more solid. It will be interesting.


Well It is not interesting.


podi over giroud anytime for me.

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

Lots of talk about the strong team for today, but how strong is it really when at half time it’s clear that Wilshire is still not ready to play, and his idea replacement is Rosicky who has been great but had a hamstring problem. How healthy is Rosicky in reality? Also have to wonder about the fitness to play of Podolski as he has had problems all season. Added to that we still have the ineffective Walcott of the last few months (though of course that could change in an instant going by his previous um, entire career). Everton look… Read more »
