Wow! Wilshere, Ramsey, Carzola AND Rosicky.

Ball playing midfield? Yeeaaah

The important difference: with Ryo we have a “real” winger instead of another attacking midfielder. He could give us some width and might be able to run behind their defense. A lot will depend on him tonight.

Wish Hayden had started ahead of one of Wilshere/Ramsey, considering the fixtures that we have coming up. But never mind. Up the gunners!

I wonder when Viviano is going to get a look in. Or Park-Chu Almunia as he could be called.

It’s a pretty strong line up and good to see that Giroud and Ozil are getting a rest.

I expect the chavs will put out their £200mil reserve team…..

Ah, Chav squad is up there now. We shuld be able to beat that lot. Essien as captain? He barely played has he? Him and Luiz should be the weak links.

If Luiz was in the Arsenal team, the press would never shut up about his fuck-ups!

I think he had as many games as our captain…

Whoop whoop. Cracking midfield, loads of creativity. If TV takes his chance to shine we look good in defence as well. Loads of spark, just need BGB to get a good game.

Hope Ryo takes his chance this time round.
Went to the game against West Brom and he was disappointing with his performance – however its a stronger lineup than I thought.

Bendtner will score or assist. Im sure of it.

Looking forward to seeing Ryo too. I like the look of our side tonight!

Come on Arsenal, we’ve put out a strong team so lets put on a strong performance.
Hopefully the crowd is up for this & we smash these Blue Cunts

Solid line up, i expect a win, i applaud the game time for Cazorla to get back up in addition to the others, but it would be foolish to think we won for the players

Strong team.

It might ‘only’ be the League cup, but it’s against those cunts. And Mourinho.

And I hate him, them and everything they stand for.

Let’s fuckin have em.

Good strong team! Now let’s see off these cunts!

Not worried about Ramsey. Just hook him up to a car battery for the weekend and he’ll be good as new.

UP THE ARSE!

I hope we are not in danger of losing the bigger picture.

much as I fancy a win for us in the league cup, it is the league cup which doesn’t get you CL footy nor much respect at the end of the day.

OTOH, we have a slew of very important games coming up.

Not sure about playing Jack. he looked a bit tender and IMO should be protected. Ditto Ramsey albeit I think his engine is a bit more solid than most of the team.

Hope we do the business without losing any players to this weekend which is crucial.

Prefer the league cup to be relegated to what it is, something to blood the youngsters and assess the reserves.

Interesting move to put Park on the bench ahead of Apkom. Because Giroud is on the bench with him, I suspect that Wenger’s plan is to play Park if we’re well ahead to put him in the shop window & Giroud if we need to go after the game in the later stages. …I hope to see Park play before the night is over!

Whenever we put Park on the bench it reminds me a bit about the Simpsons where they chain up the trampoline so someone might steal it…

Wiltshire still a worry for me not a 100% fit still just hope he stays away from trouble but his style of game he gets fouled a lot and the refs dont always protect him. At least that dirty fucker Ramires is on the bench to start with. Essien will be left for dead got no pace now “come on you Gunners”

Remembering of course, if the legs impact our match up on the weekend with Liverpool, who stands to benefit? Chelsea.

Mourinho has as usual thought this one out ahead of time.

You talk as if he’s some managerial genius. He’s not. He’s a very good careerist, like a Morgan Stanley banker. He serves the richest clubs with bottomless pits of cash, wins a couple of things and then leaves before any sustained long-term project, like building the Emirates and going broke for a couple of years, is asked of him. Overrated as fuck!

Home support is so disappointing… We’ve been mighty away from home and the away fans have been a massive part of that, but at home the atmosphere goes so flat… embarrassing when the stadium is so good
