This excites me 😀

Sheffield Goon

Me too, but it’s now half time and we are 2-0 down. Same old same old. All that excitement, anticipation etc… Gone. Nothing has changed. Fuck.

*leaves quietly out the back door*

But don’t tell me you weren’t thinking the same. We got out of jail today and need to improve.


suprised koscielny is not a starter. otherwise very mouthwatering line up.ozil+alexis+the ox = pace and skills


The Boss wasn’t in training yesterday, surely Wenger is just resting him. He said in the past few weeks that he has some problems with his achille.

Wednesday is also kind-of important.


more important actually


Sensible not to play Kos

Aussie gooner

Blogs got the team selection pretty much spot on!! Keen to see Sanchez hopefully get his first goal and happy to see wenger is open to changing styles

Anonymous Physicist

Wonder what this means in terms of shape. Wilshere on the left in the Cazorla role? Or more likely Ramsey and Wilshere playing like they did the last few games and Ozil swapping sides with the Ox? Or even Ozil as a false 9 with Alexis and Ox on either sides?

TR7 > CR7

*Adjusts boxers*

Exciting line up. Mon boys and produce!

Atletico Islington

A great looking line-up, excited to see what Sanchez can do up-front.

And when did our midfield depth become so brilliant?

King Bergkamp

All this pace is titilating :0



let’s just hope Flamini + Wilshere boss them in midfield


Quality line up! Good job Arsene


I’m impressed with the line up. This is what Le Prof bought Alexis for!

realserious gooner

Finally Arsene steps out of the big lone striker up top. Excited to see how Ox n Alexis link up. COYG!!!


for a fellow who can’t have enough small attacking midfielders, i’ve always wondered with le prof favors the big lug strikers. hold up play and all, but it’s a bit curious.


Why not TR7 in place of Wilshere?… Anyways, COYG’s!


his buzziness might come in handy as the game wears on

Four star German

Iz a great line oop

I came twice…

Good choice by Wenger, if Ozil is on form I can sense a victory here. It’s gonna be hard work though lads!


So gutted not to see Rozza in the starting line up

supa dupa

4-1-4-1 i likey


Am I the only one who’s disappointed at Wilshere starting on the wing?

Wenger seems to be adamant at playing him as much as he. He isn’t great on the wnig.

Why not Rosicky? or even Campbell?


I think Wenger will play a 4-3-3 with Flamini the DM and Wilshere and Ramsey the CM’s, while Ozil will play on the left wing like he did in the World Cup, the Ox on the right wing and Alexis as a Striker


Come on then Jack…show us what you’ve got.
What odds Flamini sent off?

Third Plebeian

This is Ozil’s first game back. Don’t expect miracles. This will be a very tough game.

Cesc Fabregas

Let’s get the excuses in now for Ozil shall we?

Third Plebeian

Erm, no, just stating a fact. It’s Ozil’s first game back. If you don’t think that’s a mitigating circumstance, then you know nothing about football.

baba ijebu

up the arse.. this is depth in the midfield

I drink Hansa

Well this is the line up we’ve been waiting for let’s see how it all unfolds

Soqed Hozi

Suspect ozil will play from the left with the 3 in midfield that we’ve been using so far this season, and the ox on the right.


Interesting line up. Good to see us set up to play on the counter, especially after the schooling at Goodison last season. Weirdly enough, I always love it when Wenger reacts to the opposition tactics – something in the back of my brain says we take those games seriously.


Arsene sending a signal to all players, Giroud/Sanogo, there are no guaranteed spots in the team; you have to earn the right to be play.

Gooner from Pretoria.

Confident line up line up….

Just Maybe?

Ok so Wenger is open to Podolski leaving.
Balotelli is currently in Liverpool, the same place as Wenger.

realserious gooner

If we get behind I believe we’ll finally see Campbell today. Though I obviously hope we don’t go behind……


Everton has got themselves a pretty good squad, especially when Barkleys’ back.


Alexis to play the role of the tenacious and street smart South American striker



Absolutely love the prospect of him up front, hope he will live up to my expectations today


Carzola and Giroud needed to be dropped on the basis of their current poor form. Good line-up!


No Podolski….quite telling. Have been told he has removed Arsenal references from his twitter thingy…..see ya later.


Where’s cazorla????


How Wilshire starts ahead of rosiscky is beyond me. COYG!!!!


Oops my bad there he is!

Top Gunner

@ Arseblood: u could have at least checked his twitter?


Boo to the latest score!!! Hope the boys don’t fall further behind or better equalise before half time and then kick on from there


Terrible decision but you kinda get the impression it is game over, now just hoping the score line don’t get worse!!


Thanks everyone for your opinions but we need Girroud desperately.

La Défènse

Wilshere and Ramsey cannot play in the same team. Wilshere has been such SHIT


Very very poor, until we get some cisalpine in central midfield we’re doomed. Whether it’s Wilshere or Ramsey, one of them has to play much closer to flamini.


First it was a foul on mertesaker, thats ok…but then..clear offsife..ok,now its ridiculous..keven evertonian friend may well b his full name

A Veryxerioz Gunner

This jus cant be happening. Dont know how we r gonna do it but i believe we are gonna win this game. COYG


I’ll have some of what you’re smoking!

A Veryxerioz Gunner

Hindsight is a bitch eh brother???


Rosicky must come on for wilshire and girroud for sanchez

Wenger: C'est fini

Winning the FA cup will set this club back 3 three years at least. We’ve needed a more tactically aware manager for years now and the cup win has just papered over massive cracks.

Well, fuck!

Well, fuck!

Nostalgic one

What’s that now 3 shots on target against in Leauge this season 3 goals. Same old same old. Change goalie and buy some big players. Abosoultly hate watching Arsenal these days you can see where every goal against is coming from 30 secs before it comes.

Third Plebeian

Ref is as clueless as Arsenal. We’ve got nothing.
