Bit risky playing without subs. COYG!:-)

TV5

i like it, Flamini and Arteta should give the three in front loads of license when we attack.

Looks like Wenger really has a lot of faith in Gnabry. Good to see him giving the German the start. COYG

Podolski

what more does Poldi have to do?

Mooo

Be 100% fit?

AmericanGooner11

The only player 100% fit on the Arsenal team is Giroud *swoons*

jerome

Keep playing well when his number is called? And then it will be called more.

Nick

I don’t know..why don’t you tell us..

prinz poldi

WENGER 100% ??????????

WizardOfOzil

Arteta and the Flamster. Feels like this is going to be a pant-shittingly tight match.

JD

Ramsey not even on the bench?

Arsepedant

Apparently still not 100%, so out until the weekend. Wilshere should also be ready for the weekend. Given the series of matches coming up, I don’t have any problem with keeping the pair of them out today.

some dumb american

Disappointing. I put him in my fantasy team because I thought he’d make a return. Fingers crossed we’ll see him back in action soon.

Mesut's Kisses

No Rambo on the bench? I hope he has not had any setbacks.

I really thought that after scoring 2 goals Podolski would be unleashed from the let go, but Cazorla is getting back to form cutting from the left in. I wonder what Podolski thinks of Gnabry starting ahead of him. oh well let’s go for yet another win. COYG!!!

Is that a rhetorical question?

Ox in the Box

A win and three points. Up the Arsenal!

Goonerestgooner

That was meant as a reply to “what more does Poldi have to do?”, posted by “Podolski”

Arsepedant

Ha ha! I hadn’t noticed that! Well spotted. Lukas is such a likeable and funny guy, I wouldn’t put it past him to post on here, too.

Zeediddy23

I’m guessing that Poldi is getting a rest and will play vs Palace on Sunday perhaps with Santi in the place of Ozil who might like a rest before feb’s run

prinz poldi

poldi SCHALKE 04 WENGER out AAHHHHHAAAA

marty eire

We will miss the drive from midfield that ramsey/jack/ox provide from the centre. We hav no carriers ozil will need to drop deep at times.COYG

Rochester

Would have liked to see Rosicky at least on the bench. i’ve been looking forward to seeing him in a mask terrorizing defenders with his scampery ways.

deano

Poldi on the bench. That’s my bet gone out the window…

Equilibrium

Sky has it that our coach is stuck in traffic. I’m a bit worried tbh. I think match nights need to be perfect like wedding nights. It’s do no harm if kickoff is postponed by an hour.

Norwad

Now that is what I would call depth! And that’s exactly what I’m doing..

metoo

Podolsky is not completely fit.

prinz poldi

HHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHAA WENGER 100% ????????? AAAHHAAAAA 2:2 ??

palace gunner

Coyg win yes

tizteezy

0-3 win for the Arsenal !!!…COYG’s

Daft Aider

I’m not sure how Podolski is expected to ever get match fitness if he’s not playing in matches, he must be on his way out…………

prinz poldi

POLDI……….POLDI ……ARSENAL out.

Ace Rimmer

I have both Poldoski and Ramsey in my dream team! Doh! I’ll forgive Wegner as long as we win!

Heroldgoon

Goodbye topspot it was fun while it lasted. poor performance!

Yankee_Gooner

Pleeeease make Wenger’s deal 1yr. Pleeeeeeease not 3. Pleeeeeeeeease!!!!

Wenger

It’s not like it was Wenger’s fault for the poor performance. At the start of the first half, we were aggressive, passing it quickly, pushing numbers forward. Look what happened, we scored 2 goals. After the second goal, we weren’t as aggressive, and so didn’t really look like scoring again.

Granted we cannot run and run and run but we looked really leggy out there today. Especially first half.

Stevie boy

Ugh

Possession

Flamini and Arteta starting together takes some oomph out of us. Rambo playing off of either of them works a treat so hopefully he will play on Sunday. Almost like playing with 12 men with him there.
Gutted tonight with a performance that was not good enough. Some very ,very tough games coming up and we need to get back on track…..

Possession

Fuck ,Rambo out for 6 weeks !
