Lets go lads! Big chance for Nelson to stake a claim!

Artetas Assistant

He should thrive too. Bellerin seems to be in WB, playing inside and Reiss dragging the pitch wide and crossing


Guendouzi gone then

Naked Cygan

He got the same bug as Ozil.


Özil is injured as the coach said. Or you don’t trust your coach? I do… Guendouzi is a lil arrogant boy.


I trust MA is doing his best for The Arsenal hence lying to keep Mesut out of the spotlight. Or you think Mikel is a fool?

Regarding Matteo it seems you ve meet him in person and you have an in depth analysis

Naked Cygan

If you think Ozil is injured, then I am Spiderman.


Not sure if we really need three centre backs against Norwich at home.


Hopefully it will nullify Norwich’s attack somewhat and allow the forward players a little bit more freedom, we shall see.

Artetas Assistant

Leaves you with two usually excellent attacking WBs


The 350,000 Pound star is missing again! What an effortless way of making money, he must be a god of the universe


A God for 350k? Nah fam. More like a bastard in the way Tryrion was.


? ?


Back injury. This is what the coach says. But guys like Merson know better.


Spine injury, more like.

I miss Bergkamp

Can he injure something he is completely lacking?

Lord Bendnter

Nah you are wrong, we bought Guendouzi for much more than the amount you have mentioned.


That’s a hell of an attacking lineup on our bench

David C

Can’t wait for Saka, Pepe, and Eddie from the bench. I guess we’re rotating a bit, sensible stuff.


Artetas Assistant

We might not need them, I’m only unsure of Laca


I think Laca will come good today

Artetas Assistant

He didn’t, playing almost as an 8




A back 3 against the bottom side? No Pepe or Saka? what’s with the chopping and changing? In an only think he’s trying to please everyone in the squad. I’m all in favour of Nelson starting, but why Kolasinac again? He was useless against Sheff Utd.

Artetas Assistant

Because you assume a back 3 is a defensive formation?


Yes actually. When you add Xhaka, slow doesnt get forward and Ceballos, slow doesn’t get forward, yes I do. Also no Pepe or Saka, less attacking threat from wide. We’ll see, maybe I’m wrong, but this looks more about contain than attack. Are we scared at what Norwich can do to our defence?


ceballos scored the second goal at the weekend…. and it was a tap in from about 4 yards out, but he doesn’t get forward….
and the chopping and changing im assuming is down to the fact that were playing every 3 days a month after the usual season is finished.
final point, Im scared at what our defence can do to itsself let alone what the top scorer in the championship and first player to score a hatrick in his first season up for years can do to us.


I guess the chopping and changing is due to playing every 3 days.


We need to win on Saturday at Wolves. This lineup just tells me that Holding, Saka, Pepe, and Nketiah will start at Molineux. We should be able to win today even with this kind of rotation.


This aged well.

Glen Helders left foot

Arteta really likes Luiz, poor judgement


Im glad Reiss is back. Hopefully he can take his claim! As for Gwendoozi, im not sure he wants to continue playing with The Arse. COYG

4-0 in Arsenal favour. This is my best and happiest day as an Arsenal fan since resumption of play. Well done boys. You really made us proud.
