ESR back in the squad is great news!


The C word!!




I know it was years ago, but Wenger would have started Nwaneri and Walters in this game.

Play them Mic, let’s see how they run

The fact that Arteta can draw on ESR, Saka, Nketiah, Nelson is because Wenger and then Emery were not afraid to play youngsters in games like these.


I thought Galiba were getting a rest too…


Should have, at least one of them, Walters by now surely deserves a start in a game of utterly no importance. I was arguing for a strong team in the Europa league vs Lisbon last season (would take that one back now) so I really don’t wanna be one of those fans, but unlike that game there is literally zero to be gained from this one, so if either half of Galiba gets hurt Mikel will deserve all the rage thrown at him


Cedric needs to be bought up to speed since tomi is out for a while and white only just recovered.
For Walters to start it would mean the boss was actually planning to promote him to the first team bench this Dec/jan

Way too many risks here IMO. Saliba and Gabi should not be starting.

I hope we treat it like an exhibition game! Get the kids on by halftime.


Lol. Saliba is 22, had a major back injury, had surgery and has played every minute in the PL and UCL this season… Surely, he should have gotten a rest here considering the number of games coming up ffs!


Odd one isn’t it? Seems like Ben White could use some game time in that spot.


Arteta is taking an unnecessary risk playing our three fit CBs in a dead rubber.
Why can’t Walters start this game.


Nobody gets injured, please! Not sure why Arteta would start Saliba, give him a rest surely. And would have like to see a few more youngsters on the bench. He should have left Saka/Odegaard/Jesus at home to have a week off after recent injuries plus get 3 more youngsters on the bench (Myles-Skelly, Sagoe Jr and Cozier-Duberry)

Honey Badger

Opegard vs Odegaard bench going to be really intriguing. Hopefully they get to play the whole match from the bench..


It is not often a thread with the pregame .. you know.. the banter, is so positive. I guess our fans are less cuntish when there is no pressure. Go figure. Imagine how some of us lose our shit before a ball is kicked. You’d think, people were FIFA-level children who need a shiny cup. As an old man, I do not get it. Oh that is right, I have no ambition. I do not want to win. Sorry, I fucking had to! So, COYG!!! Every game – is a game and the potential is what matters. Enjoy it. If… Read more »


Cedric *shudders*


God it’s great to have a game where Cedric starts and it doesn’t matter at all.

I hope he scores a hat trick and we sell him to Citeh for ONE BILLION POUNDS.


Get a shutout Rammers!

SLC Gooner

Fingers crossed on Gabriel and Saliba. Hopefully we can rotate the kids in at half time. Otherwise, this looks like the right lineup.


Massive gamble for 3m euros?
Just play the kids especially Walters.
We may find out he’s ready for the bright lights; Tomi’s off until the end of January.
We need another defender, badly.

Lord elpus

Some big risks being taken with that lineup. I think someone should remind Mikel that (unfortunately), there are no trophies handed out for Integrity.


Guessing Arteta is aware that losing Saliba to injury ended our title bid last season ?
This is an unnecessary rank bad decision Pretty sure Walters would do just fine but hey ho !!!


There we go!!! And if he is not injured, you .. captain hindsight will come back and say.. well I was a cunt about fuck all? I doubt it. The times our fans are wrong. ,do not come back and say sorry.. with line a up? Right once,. never hear the end of it! Nice.


Yeah bro apparently the probability of injury in a game suddenly skyrockets as soon as it’s a game that is deemed not so important.
Anybody notice Bayern playing a full-strength lineup at ManU?

Teryima Adi

Decent lineup. COYG!!!
