Glad to see gnabry get go hope he scores up the arse


I think you missed a punctuation mark there, or at least I hope you did.


The boss knows best. But it is satisfying to see Gnabry back, hope he continues to be a revelation.


Awesome to see Serge start! COYG!

Mesut's Kisses

I want a couple of kisses to the crowd at Villa Park tonight.


Fucking let Poldi play


then i saw your name

jack jack jack

I don’t understand it either – no doubt Arsene will say he’s still getting fit. I’m sure he’ll get some more starts as the season goes on. Having the option to bring him and Rosicky off the bench is a pretty amazing position to be in. Come on lads!


Fully expected arteta and rosicky to start but love this arsenal side, great options. COYG


Where’s my Mr Perfect. What happened to Arteta?

the fonz

oooooh, Gnabry!


No McGringinberry on the bench, thought he will get his first test of english football today 🙂


Arteta? Smash ’em.

Subs -7 Rosicky
9 Podolski
15 Oxlade-Chamberlain
21 Fabianski
25 Jenkinson
28 Gibbs
30 Park


Don’t like Cazorla on the wing… Plays little defense


I love Cazorla… just love him less on the wing!

Toby C

Doh, too late 🙁


Let’s hope serge gnabs his chance


Let’s see what the difference is, with no Anthony Taylor in the Villa line up tonight.

Oor Wullie

no Adams or Keown? Rioch’s lost the plot


Demolition mode activated…. Let the game begin. COYG lets repay villa


Let’s rePAVE Villa. The road to the trophy!


Call me a prude but that first comment when read literally requires a ‘parental guidance’ warning.

Very excited about our line up tonight though.


You are one very very bad boy 🙁


Maybe a nice little double change at 70 with pod and the ox coming on.


Did i just read park is in the subs ?


YESSSSS! Gnabry starting. Hopes he pushes those Aston Villa’s full-backs to their area nd make them sweat.

Hate to be a bit negative….but at what stage would Park get on tonight? If we need a goal we’ll look to Poldi, Ox, or TR7 before him?
I’m just upset I didn’t get the position of “number upper maker”


Loving this line up. If the boys have got their shooting boots on I see a few goals here 0-3/4


ooooooh serrrgee gnabryyyyy

Whoa! Is that Park?

I believe I just saw park on the bench! Tell me it’s all just a dream!!!


I’m hearing Arteta has a hair out of place, should be back for the next game though.


This is wayyyy off topic but

Ronaaaaalddddooo!! justice is served!

now on to what actually matters ……Gnabry baby!

Seamy Boy

Good also to see that Monreal stays despite Gibbs being fit (albeit just). Big chance to stake a claim.


Arteta not even on the bench what’s wrong with why is he not in the team ? I’m going to guess it’s illness .

Seamy Boy

No hair gel in the local tesco. He’s staying in sulking. Flamini ain’t happy with him, word has it he’s rocking up at his gaff after the game

Poldi, ein Fußball-Gott.

In my dream last night, we went into half time trailing 2-1 with the manager sent off after giving the 4th official a piece of his mind. Arsene sent the Arseblog newshound to instill the fear of Dennis in the players at half-time and we ended up winning 2-6.

Daft Aider

Park, on the bench?,
Park on the bench?


I suppose Vermaelen’s ill too? Bench a little imbalanced I think but first team is ready to rip Villa a new one

Bendtner's hair band

I want to see Ox on the left. He played there a lot at Southampton.


It has been a bad day with Muppet solicitors so feeling negative about our chances – hope that is just because I’m feeling aggravated not because the Arsenal are going to balls it up against this dog turd of a team!

palace gunner

Get in their jack & giroud 0.2 coyg


Bliss lol more goals please as i loathe villa and it would help our goal difference COYG


Good first half, same again lads – happy gunner oh yeah


What happened to more of the same – groan – five or ten minutes of torture!


Phew! That was horrible

palace gunner

Back on top just, but well defended we need the vital pace up front gd to see ox back
