it will be good if Aston Villa sit deep. That will enable us to get the ball quickly forward to Ozil campbell and Giroud, and the lack of a proper deep lying playmaker won’t be such a problem.


A strong lineup, let’s do it boys!


I would like to see Iwobi come on before the 70th minute

Le Jim

Thank Bergkamp.

There were a few rumours that Ozil might’ve been rested, and that would have been terrible, considering the great man is my fantasy team captain.

Same, but if it means avoiding another injury, rest him against villa. Definitely

Just means Jamie Vardy will have to pull his finger out against Chelski

Santi's Smile

More than enough in attack to bring goals and a strong defense to produce a clean sheet. Take the three points!

Vladimir Petrovic.

More than good enough. Say we are top of the league…..


Good to see both Walcott and Giroud starting. While we’re lacking Alexis it seems the logical thing to do – a double whammy, let’s hope, as they have different attacking styles.

Read it somewhere that ozil was going to be rested this game for ‘Unknown Reasons’.Left me a bit off-guarded and worried!Fucking BS.
He is Ozil and he is going to hammer Aston Villa off the park today.Bring it on.


Let’s go to the top of the table today and fix our position till the end of the season.


Feels like a 4-0 scoreline with this line-up! #COYG


Brave decision by Villa not to field any players, but I suppose the way their season’s going they’ve got to try anything.

Gudag Bedil

Just hoping Ozil’s not risked too much.

Arsenal hurts

Pls win this one easy. I have a heart condition (heart rheumatism) n im advised not to watch stressful sports, i know nothings more frustrating than watching Arsenal playing low end teams for that matter but im only 24 n i fuckin deserve to watch my beloved team every weekend. Just dont try to kill me like you always do…

Stringer Bell

Let’s put a professional performance in. Show respect, think west brom Norwich, and hope Ramsey and flamini keep disciplined. It’s important that the pair of em don’t get carried away. Top of the league waits. Don’t blow it boys.


Yeah lets not blow another chance to go top but not underestimating the opposition!!!!


Villa 1 – 3 Arsenal


We will be at the top of the table today or Maureen will be sacked tomorrow. COYG




Put them to bed boys!!!


Thank you!!!!

Nice to see Aston Villa are giving our players a day off. They can really use the rest at the moment, so the gesture is much appreciated.

On the other hand: a good 0-7 here may well turn out to be useful come May, as the league seems to be shaping up to be close up to the end.


At the tollington with a lovely pint of staropramen watching a very efficient Arsenal ? Finally got my addition of Together. Thanks Andrew and blogs, I’ve been looking forward to this read for a long time!
