Alexis on the bench?!?! And on the pitch?!?!

Einstein's Relative

I don’t know bout Arsene but he oughta be paid double whatever he’s getting.

Spot on — the manager has done his bit now it’s down to the players. don’t fuck it up

Would like to see Lucas on the left of that formation at some point but i guess he’s not fit, and he played midweek

Stringer Bell

I like it. Finally Wenger may be accepting that Ramsey is not a starter but could be useful off the bench. Coyg


I’m glad that we’ve managed to clone Alexis so that he’s part of our bench and starting line-up as well!

Gunner From Another Mother

Talk about bringing some energy off the bench!


We know that Alexis is superb, but to be in two places at the same time – not even he can do that 🙂

typo Alexis is listed as sub as well

Oor Wullie

Excellent option off the bench. Stick him up top with Alexis if we need to.


That’s one of his dogs.

Third Plebeian

Alexis on the bench!

Third Plebeian

And on the field!


Blogs I dint know we had two Alexis. He is so good Wenger must hve clonned him

Cornelius P. Snuffington III

The plural of Alexis is Alexii.


There’s actually no plural of Alexis, like jewellery, luck, weather, chaos and help. One Alexis, three Alexis, a dozen Alexis.

Frank Bascombe

Nice one Ebo.


Blogs I dint know we had two Alexis. He is so good Wenger must have clonned him

Oor Wullie

You must’ve thought your comment was so good that Blogs cloned it 😀

Third Plebeian

Good, you fixed hve. Next: clonned!


The plural of Alexis is Alexii.


NIce to have a spare Alexis on the bench.


I like that we have an Alexis on the bench just in case we may need a second Alexis on the pitch.


We should start them both

Third Plebeian

Peres is the sub.


Alexis is so good he can be on the pitch and bench at the same time! Come on you Gooners!


Come on theo. You love a goal gainst the Stratford squatters.


Looking good!




If only we had two Alexis! One could take care of his dogs so the other had his mind at ease to focus on football.


i dont understand this right back thing. jenkinson is playing bad . solution – play someone even worse

Gabriel is better than Jenkinson

Remember this cat thinks Ramsey is world class so it makes sense that he sees jenkinson as better than Gabriel. Gabriel is a worry but all day long over jenks I’m afraid

regressive goona’z.

Gabriel is robust and surprisingly quick. Surprised me last week.


I am not comfortable with Gabriel on the right either. He was not really tested in that position against bournemoth. Ox will have to help out. They’ve got lanzini and payet who boath roam from that wing. I am sure Arsene knows his players better than I do but it is just a bit earie with gabriel on the right back.

Wizard of Oz

Let’s hope this is one of the Ox’s better days. Glad to see Xhaka in the middle. We need his distribution in the transition.


What are we doing?


Come on blogs! 10!!!
