Decent lineup imo.
Wenger seems to be going for more defensive solidarity on the left having both Monreal and Gibbs playing.

I wonder when Lucas will return to the squad. He’s a better option than Walcott to start games or as a sub.

Third Plebeian

Defensive stability on the left, sure. But what about the middle? Ramsey and Xhaka? Any ball winners?

Toure motors

Time for the spuds to shit the bed. COYG!!

Le Jim

Roberto Holdini and Danny Welbeck should be starting for me.


Why the fuck is Giroud starting? He was awful in the semi, we were much better with Welbeck up front, ridiculous!


Giroud did well as target for out balls, Welbz came on when Kompany was tiring and looked good,, Welbz as starter hasn’t impressed.


No Welbeck’s movement is light years ahead of Giroud. Giroud is the better finisher. That’s it.


Yeah Giroud is there basically because our midfield game is rubbish and we need the option to bypass it.


Wasn’t overly confident prior to announcement. Even less so now. Great opportunity to take advantage of United’s slip. But given Kanes form, against that defence, I’ll happily take a draw now.

Godfrey Twatsloch

I’ll happily take a twatting of the Spuds and their 7 other twats.


Would have preferred to see Holding start myself

Cliff Bastin

This. And also hammer them to the point where they realise that how ever many times they have a good season they will still forever remain pointless.

An Ox-sized Coq

Hmmm…I’d start Holding. He did fantastic in the FA Cup semifinal so I don’t think you can say the occasion is too big.

Spanish Gooner

Win this and we will guarantee forever that no team will have won more PL titles at WHL than Arsenal. COYG

feel we have too many left boots out there, especially w gibbs. it seems to really slow down our play having so many players needing to cut back and switch on to their favored foots. one of the real reasons we miss santi so much.

eduardo scissorhands

either way COYG!!!!


Ramsey? 🙁


AW always talked about his ‘faith’ in his players. Where’s the faith in Lucas, Holding and Welbz ? Giroud about as mobile as a 3 legged donkey

Stringer Bell

Gibbs Giroud and Ramsey lucky to get start.

Lord Bendtner

Since this morning I’ve been so excited for this game! I know it’s not very top European clubish of me to be this excited for a game that is important to win for a champions league spot. But you know what, I don’t care! Today, this game is like the finalest of all finals for me this season. If we win this, Sp*rs title chances are pretty much over!!

*Elsewhere, Chambo has scored against city 🙂

Godfrey Twatsloch

“Subs: 7 other twats”


Giroud needs to rough up them centre halfs today. It’s gotta be bodies on the line stuff, nothing else will do. Wish I was at the lane today, I fucking hate that place but have some good memories there. Instead I’ll be hiding behind the sofa and listening to that poisonous little imp Gary Neville droning on. Anyway… Come on you gunners!!


Neville was at Everton, so maybe Alan Smith?


I hope so, although I liked him a lot better as a player!


Not sure about Gibbs but a 5-2-1-2 is ok. Love the Totnum subs declared by Blogs!

Lord Bendtner

I like this decision to have Monreal as a CB and Gibbs as a LWB, we will need that extra pace, and despite Monreal’s amazing displays in that position recently, I really think pace on the wings will play a huge role today for both teams

Welbeck would have been preferred, but I’m not going to complain about Giroud, both teams will be looking to attack a lot, so I don’t expect Giroud to be completely deprived of the ball. I expect him to get chances, and hopefully he will take them.


Calum Chambers scores against City – good lad !

Indian Gooner

Let’s roast the chicken and show who is the boss today.
Man city and Man utd both have lost some points today. We really have to really step it up today and show some desire. Come on you Gunners.


Why is Giroud starting?? What the heck is wrong with Wenger?? Two games this guy has started in the 3-4-3 and he hasn’t done well. This is an opportunity to close the gap and wenger goes and does this. Spurs will press the shit out of us even more comfortably now knowing Giroud isn’t quick enough to run behind.
I’m not optimistic…a draw is the best I see us getting.

not so fed up

Wow some good results today, just hoping we can do the scum to put the cherry on the cake ?

Wright on the money

Wenger should be playing holding in the back three and Sanchez or Welbeck up front with Giroud on the bench.

This is because neither Verthogan or Aldierweld have much pace they would rip them apart.

Come on the Gunners City and United three points away we need all 3 now.


3rd place is in our grasp now.


The bid to retain a St Totteringham’s Day starts here!


Can see Gibbs has been put in there to back up Monreal with Allie. Let’s see how that pairing of Rambo and Xhaka goes today, as I would have preferred a battle in that midfield between Le Coq and Wanyama. COYG!!

Dennis \'All airmiles and elbows\' Bergkamp

Holding unfortunate not to start, Monreal unfortunate not to be starting left wing back and continue his impressive attacking contribution in recent games. Gibbs fortunate to still be at the club, nevermind starting such important fixtures


Is Elneny still injured?


Oh, how I’d love some Rosicky today…

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

Announce you’re leaving after the cup final please.

TR7 > CR7

Fuck off spurs you cunts, you’ll finish 12th next year playing in Wembley.


Anyone know whats up with Elneny? Why isnt he playing?
