Is Wilshire injured? Not in squad and still not signed a contract? Sadly I can see him leaving. Hope I’m wrong

Merci Arsene!

Let’s give him a last win!


Cech is rested and Santi is not on the bench. Arsene not risking him then. Win it for him boys! ?


Rested for what? Seems like for whatever reason Wenger must prefer Ospina as he plays him for all the meaningful games (cups like vs am)


Maybe because it is a last game for arsenal Ospi a plays!


I hope they win the game for him. That will be a good sent off for him


Where is Cech? Not even on the bench? Is he injured?

Give us a final wengerball ride that too much to ask for? #COYG

I wasn’t sure if he was going to play a really young team, and give them a final chance to impress whoever the new manager is. I would of been all for that idea, but looking at the team sheet, I’m glad he has gone for probably the strongest possible 11. C’mon arsenal away, don’t ruin my accumulator for once! (+ send off Wenger in style please)


Ramsey captain for the last Wenger game – only right and only proper!


We need a GK, CB, CF and a spare CM

My CF Lewandowski – Move Auba wide to iwobi’s position in the same formation and Iwobi goes straight to reserves
CB – Koulibaly
CM – Meyer free
GK – ???

Same formation. New Gk fights with Ospina. New CB replaces Holding in the lineup.
Ozil and Jack back on bench instead of Eddie and Willock. Ozil to rotate with Mkhi.

Having Cazorla would be a double bonus for next season.

Just a huge thank-you to arsene for all he’s done for our club! Yeah I’ve disagreed with lots of his decisions and yeah we could and should probably have won more silverware but we are a club not just a team and he has maintained our true high standards and values. Good luck to the new Boss and personally I’d still rather see players come through our ranks or being bought as promising prospects than buy top of the range off the shelf money mad mercenaries. Let’s stay classy and stay with the people as Arsene pretty much has. i… Read more »




Typical Wenger.

He takes out the 3 players most effective in Iwobi, Kolasinac and Aubameyang.

Instead he keeps a largely anonymous Mhkitaryan (what’s that they are complaining about Ozil?) and an ineffective Lacazette.

Mustafi was pretty solid today but you won’t see any stats on him since they only want to highlight his mistakes. Never mind Holding and Monreal make mistakes too.

Ramsey frustrating today. A couple of sublime touches (one for the goal and one almost for Lacazette had he not conspired to hit it at the keeper), but otherwise poor decision making throughout.
