    not sure i fancy Gibbs after yesterday - him and Ospina were our worst players.

    ? Ospina was amazing. You normally only find theater like that on Broadway.

    Knee jerk reaction to yesterdays win tells me AMN, Ox and Welbeck all deserve starts.

    Logic tells me..... **** logic, just start AMN, Ox, Welbeck and Theo while they're inform.

    I'd be starting Ox in CM again - seems like his one chance to make an impact if we let him run with this

    AMN has made a nice little problem with his mature performance. I hope he is considered again. Has recovery pace, increasing understanding of positioning on and off the ball and showed he is a relatively reliable passer. I would like to see him in a high tempo setting to see how his role is tweaked depending on his partner.

    AMN - OX looked a very good pairing, even if it was against a weak Southampton side, but has Coq - Ramsey ever played well together? So for me, AMN - OX/Ramsey should be the midfield.

    Sapient Hawk The Reason We're Out of Europe

    We've had a day extra rest and they're coming off a loss in the FA Cup against a team who couldn't fill their own stadium because probably 70% of their fans have life bans :lol:.

    We need to keep the momentum of the display at St. Mary's and come out flying. Grab a couple early goals and this could end up a right tonking for them which can only do our morale good for the dreaded early Saturday kickoff.

    I would give him a runout as CM over Ramsey any day.

    I wish we wouldn't see Ramsey or Giroud. But we all know what will happen.

    Preferred line-up:


    Bellerin Mustafi Koscielny Monreal

    Oxlade Coquelin

    Walcott Özil Iwobi

    Predicted line-up:


    Gabriel Mustafi Koscielny Monreal

    Ramsey Coquelin

    Iwobi Özil Alexis

    It'll likely be a win either way, we just won't look as smooth with those 2 in there.

    Thing is, if you're going to have a player in central midfield running with the ball, attacking space would you rather it be Ox or Rambo?

    As much as I would love to start both Welbeck and Walcott , it'd be too harsh on Iwobi to miss out in my opinion.


    Please give Lucas and Welbz about 25-30 mins each Wenger. Won't you? @Makingtrax

    Praying to the old gods and the new that Giroud doesn't start.

    I'm just glad we suddenly seem to have a superfluity of options - it won't last but it makes such a welcome change from the usual cobbling together of a side

    Dropping Ox and Theo would be criminal. Pretty harsh to drop Perez too but would like Alexis up top.

    what has Iwobi done? nothing much. needs to start producing to nail down a spot.

    Ox has much better numbers.

    True that Iwobi needs to improve his end product but that's not the main reason why Wenger plays him. His role is different.

    I take it we have accepted he is in fact Wenger?

    When Wenger had the Stoke and Everton games a few days apart, he didn't even give the very reliable Gibbs a game in either one, despite the fact that they were approaching the Man City game.

    I don't expect to see too many surprises here in the absence of injury. The most difficult thing to predict is whether he'll make one or two changes from the Burnley game - Bellerin for Gabriel for sure, Walcott in for Giroud perhaps.

    Predicted line up

    Bellerin Mustafi Koscielny Monreal
    Ramsey Coquelin
    Walcott Özil Iwobi
