Poldi and Campbell on the bench again.

I think it’s gonna take a black plague for these two to get a start.

In all my time as an Arsenal fan I’ve never been more confused by Wenger’s decisions than I have been in recent weeks


Considering they’re wide players, i would much rather have Alexis and Welbeck operating on the wings rather than the two imo.

Against Galatasaray Podolski could easily have had a hat-trick from out on the left and Campbell put in a promising performance and was unlucky not to score, I’d say at least one of them deserved a league start

And I’m not sure how many times Welbeck will accept being pushed out wide, seeing as he moved here specifically because we were supposed to give him an opportunity to play down the middle


Always fancy Arse to score, but the prospects of a clean sheet seem slim to me. Need to pray for a 3-2

Debuchy gets his first tast of centre back at premiership level, according to reports.
Eh, hello, they were never that stretched at Newcastle when he was there? We’re a “big” club and we have been improvising in this position nearly all season so far………says a lot.
Anyway we are where we are, let’s perform now so there’s no Infuriating celebrations from Monsieur pardieux

Arsene's handkerchief

WTF has happened to Rosicky? Haven’t seen him anywhere…..


Yeah, it’s a real puzzle. Especially since we have basically no fit midfielders.


Hes injured. Thigh strain i think

AS17 is for A.Sanchez not

He must have won the xmas team contest and he’s on his way to the moon. with his guitar. to have the best view scouting for new players to sign in Jan.
I think am drunk!!! Before the match instead of after..maybe the team sheet had an effect

Henry! Chance!! Goal!!!

Look at the bench. We are down to bare bones at this point


Rosicky is injured. Hip.


We tried 2 leftbacks and that didnt work so obviously we need to try 2 rightbacks right? COME ON YOU RIP ROARING REDDDDDDDSS!!!!!FFS!!!


Papiss Cisse has had 10 shots so far this season and scored 7 goals. He averages a goal every 66th minute, which is best in the league.. So lets not give him any oppurtunities to score.

ok,i will make sure of that.


Such a strong bench. Newcastle should be worried.

Alobam(nwa 9ja)

prince poldi should have started this game.


We are a different team on defense when Koscielny is in the back four. Don’t think it is a coincidence that we had 3 consecutive clean sheets when he played. He and the BFG are a perfect combination.


Wenger out!


Naaa naa naa na na na na tippy tappy through the middle..guve me crosses.. giroooooud.


What a performance from Debuchy!!!
