Subs: Ospina, Chambers, Gibbs, Elneny, Flamini, Walcott, Welbeck

Swansea: Fabianski, Naughton, Amat, Williams (c), Kingsley, Cork, Fer, Ki Sung-Yueng, Routledge, Ayew, Gomis.

Subs: Nordfeldt, Rangel, Fernandez, Fulton, Barrow, Sigurdsson, Paloschi

That line up would have been nice on Sunday


Three points nothing less

Burn Baby Burn

At the minimum. After Sunday, we need a bunch of early goals with Alexis & Giroud in on them and a clean sheet. No new injuries would be great, but we already missed that w/ Kos calf injury.


Let’s get this S out of the way, shall we boys.


“At the minimum”? You think maybe we should get five or six points out this match? I love your optimism and I hope it comes true. Fingers crossed.

I like you 🙂

Giroud smash!!!


Kos out with a slight calf problem. Hopefully BFG can carry the defence and Campbell can play better than Walnut! COYG!!!

Kos has a calf injury
I’m curious as to how Arteta is doing. He’s still listed as having a calf injury on but I thought he was back in training over a month ago.
Is he now more assistant than player?


What’s happened to Kos?


Hope he just gets a rest before the derby. Anything else would be quite shite.


Looks good to me, come on now boys please!

Mesutthe alien prince

5pts would do nicely though


Hopefully BFG can lead the defense properly and campbell can play better than Walcott. Nothing less than 3 points. COYG!!!


Finally – Campbell disposes of Walnut.

Mr. G

Now we just need Elneny to dispose of Ramsey.


COYG! Win this one to give me just enough hope to then be painfully extinguished on Saturday.

David C

This is the team (except Kos for Gab) that should have started against Man U!

What the hell did Campbell do to lose his spot in the first place?

Walcott much more suited as an impact sub.


Hoping the Hammers can do a job on the Spuds for us!


I hope Jenks is going to be shouting “banter” “banter” from the stand! 🙂

Tarquin Farquar

It’s do or die!!! Hold up I said that Sunday. Coyg


Hoping Campbell smashes it tonight


Oh no! No start for Elneny.

I don’t trust Ramsey.

Hope Koscielny is fine.


Never thought I’d be so happy to see Campbell on the team sheet.


Walcott must be wondering what he did to deserve this. I’ll tell you what he did not do, play football.

Coyg. Strong 11strong bench. 3 points please

Petits Handbag

Please don’t do what I, and I expect Arseblogger to do from reading this morning’s blog.
Convincing win, with Alexis & Giroud among the goals.
And maybe a West Ham win if that’s not pushing it?


Elneny should have strarted. Don’t trust Ramsey.

Hope Koscielny is fine.

Please God send Carzorla back in March.


Glad to see Walcott on the bench lol shame elneny ain’t getting a game but Campbell is back – sweet!!!

Rosicky's Right Foot

I have a feeling that Gabriel will be eager to put Gomis back in his place.


Gabriel and eargerness shouldnt go hand in hand. We need him to be calm and composed

Eternal Titi Berg Pat Nostalgia

You’re right. Costa wasn’t even on the pitch, last Sunday.


Oh Arsene.. you still don’t get it. It should be El neny in midfield, not Ramsey. Even if we do win this, it would be a shit performance.


just get the 3 points ! tonight and saturday too. and we will still be in contention. don’t know how this team isgoing to do it , but at this point of the season and the horrible football they have offered us so far , only the results counts now, and by any means necessary. COYG!


So iwobi was deemed a better option to bring on against manu than Campbell. Yet now doesn’t even make the bench yet the woeful Walcott still does.
It’s like he’s making it up as he goes along.

jtown gunner

love this lineup with campbell, i think we are more balance with him in the side, hopefully he can bring the best out of sanches and girout with good link up.

Bob Davis

We have to win this game! Forget about the game on Saturday against the scum.

Walcott had to be dropped. Kosc didn’t even make the bench, hope he’s not injured.

Gabriel can show what he’s made of. Good to see Giroud, Campbell and Per back. Solid line-up. The fans have to get behind the team to help us win the game!



I hope Gabriel doesn’t fuck up again. How long is Kos out?


I just saw Alexis interviewed talking English on Arsenal Player!
I love him!


Must Ramsey start every game?


The same midfield. That makes me nervous.

The Wizard of OZ(il)

Again with the Coq-Ramsey combo… I honestly don’t know why?!?


i’d rather see iwobi on the bench than flamini


Campbell!!!!!!!!!!!! What a goal!!!!
Seriously, it was criminal to not pick Campbell for the last few weeks, specially when the one you pick is Walcott.


As everyone knows, I was pretty mad on Saturday. Rightly so. I called for Sanchez to be dropped and we MUST play Campbell.

Sanchez is practically undroppable, I get that, however Joel is a certain starter. And he’s proved why! Joel power!

COYG! Better night tonight fellas! Let’s be happy again! A win and a S*urs loss means 3 points off top!


Wow, look at that, Campbell scores….. wonder how many more goals we could have had if he had played before JUST SAYING

He's got no hair but we don't care...

So, it’s 1-1 at the mo, are we surprised?

If this manager fails to win this game, I beg all my mighty Gooners to vote with their feet and not turn up to the rest of the home games.

The ONLY way that pathetic owner and board of ours will take notice is a half empty Emirates. It will embarrass them and the sponsors seeing that on tv.



Pants its 1-1


45 mins for this team to hang on in their and avoid the storm


Yet again shit defending from Ramsey,the guy just walks past him for their goal.
Take one for the team you useless fucker


Why is this team playing so shite?
misplaced passes. not on same wavelength. indecisive in attack. sterile possession. dodgy defending.

Wenger out!


Every result is going our way so far… except our own. It’s like we are handed an opportunity and we decide to flush it down the toilet wrapped in an used diaper. 45 minutes to capitalize, clock’s ticking.


Oh crumbs


Losing at home to a second string Swansea side

Mustrum Ridcully, Unseen Academicals

I had a feeling that Arsenal would lose tonight. I think the side lacks character and leadership. Where are the Tony Adams or Patrick Vierras?

Mustrum Ridcully, Unseen Academicals

I still hope against hope the Gunners can win this though.


Wenger out NOW!!!


Ten minutes to win the game and a goal down – not likely – WENGER OUT


Wenger needs to stay players needs to play for him

He's got no hair but we don't care...

A bad week isn’t permanent eh Wenger?


Leave now.


What an epic collapse. This team needs a new voicebin their heads. At home and againdt swansea? Even they comebback and win bis a huge embarrassment.


You have to wonder if Wenger cares anymore. How can a man with so much experience makes such basic mistakes, makes such poor substitutions, or underprepare his teams. I simply do not get it.


This is embarrassing meant to be title contenders
