Poor old Viviano. Fab will be off at the end of the season, shouldn’t we be trying to entice the next back-up?

akkimaniac

also any idea why Verms not in the squad?

akkimaniac

Blogs?

I’d like to see Zelalem get bit of a run today!

Faxe

Exciting team selection. I hope Zelalem comes on.

alan wilkinson

Showed good touches ,sure to make a good player,my only regret will be Wenger will toss him out on loan asap,i’d like hime to get regular 20mins in the Prem,i think loanees this young are wasted playing with inferior teams.

Otygooner

A very strong line up

Podolski

They finally let the German hammer play!

mike

Is it possible to criticize a line-up for being too strong? Zelalem, you will be missed.

Hoogy

Where is Frimpong? I’ve seen him in the training photos, this seems a perfect chance to give him a break. If he is not being used at all I don’t understand why Wenger hasn’t cleared him out yet.

George

i reckon he’s just there for team banter! ahahha!

Hoogy

Thats what i thought too haha, well it seems to be working this year!

alan wilkinson

Has he completed anger management yet ??,I think he could be a real asset,but he has to calm down ,{the reason why he doesn’t play }

realseriousgooner

No Verminator on the bench? Is he injured or have the ever present illness all of our squad seems to get?

Denmarkgooner

Got injured against spuds, I recall Wenger saying he should be back for Southampton though.

Ishan

Interesting team selection. I’m confused, are we playing two strikers (Poldi & Bendtner) or are we playing the Ox in the middle and Poldi on the left and Bendtner alone up front?

james-enfield

I think Ox is playing as a deep-lying midfielder like he did against Milan a couple of years ago, with Gnabry and Poldi on the wings supporting Bendtner. It’s still a solid team selection, they should win comfortably.

Arsepedant

Holy smeg, what a powerful line-up! Wilshere and Ox as CDMs? We must be out to break the FA Cup record for goals in this match. I hope that we’re up by a tennis score at half time so Zelalem can come on for his debut. Can’t wait to see him play in a competitive match.

Sorry, Coventry, you’re in for a hiding today.

Ponty

Wilshere and Oxlade together in the middle seems very offensive… I like it!

Verminator

Why not play vermaelen instead of Koscielny

SoqedHozi

Injured

Pakistan Arsenal!

Impressive team, really impressive. And that too is an understatement. Wow!!

jack jack jack

Double pivot of Wilshere and Ox will be interesting. I suppose Jack will have to be more defensive-minded, but man there are a shit load of goals in this team. Let’s give them a good hammering!

james-enfield

I’m actually a bit nervous about the Wilshere-Ox pivot, since both are so attack-minded. Jack’s going to have to be extremely disciplined tonight.

percyofgod

That Podoski’s sledgehammer-left-leg!!!

nikolaGunner

only jack to play holding midfielder ? This is too offensive bunch of players. I fear about theirs counter-attack !

germangunner92

zelalem! hope he will play today

N7

Frimpong, sadly, looks a gonner.

Carlos Vela

Mike

wengerbot

actanon

Wilshere-Ox central. Sexy

BTless

Fellow Gooners where can i watch the match online in the UK ? Money’s too tight to mention

hillbilly

livestream anyone?

Goonerestgooner

Ox played most of the game in the middle at Newcastle (1-1) last season, and that kinda worked out ok.

Otygooner

And we’re winning

Merlin's Panini

Where’s Yaya Sanogo? I thought he was supposed to be back now. Or have I missed something?

Arsepedant

Sanogo’s back in training next week.
