    I'd say Gibbs was our worst player against southampton. Other than this match he's been pretty good.

    I mean I love the Ox and I've been in agreement with Wenger that his best position is in the middle. However, seeing so many people here, whom a week ago wouldn't have even placed him in their starting XI now playing him centrally is still a bit over the top.

    Don't want Giroud and Iwobi to start.

    Well Ramsey is seriously hit and miss. The argument is that Ramsey is slowly improving (sort of) and so keeping that going might be a good move. But a rare superb performance from Ox is a flame you really want to keep fanning.

    Of course Ramsey starts. If he's available that is...

    Very odd that neither Ramsey or Coquelin was in the squad last Sat I think, unless they have injury-problems.

    Not sure there's any point playing Coquelin at home to Watford though.
    Unbalanced as it may be, I'd rather play Ramsey with the Ox.

    Watching Coquelin barking at people and chase shadows at Emirates... Some people must hate football.

    Have no idea why people want Ramsey and Coquelin to play together against Watford at home... Getting playing time together for Chelsea game? Wont matter at all. They are **** partnership and it wont change in one home game against Watford...

    Rather use the opportunity to experimenting more with Chamberlain there!

    Not really a case of wanting them to play together, we're stretched in there and knowing Wenger it's the partnership we'll go with.

    You'd go for Ox and Coquelin, would you?

    Yeah I know he will go Coquelin - Ramsey...

    I would have gone anything but Coquelin... Can't stand the guy in home games. :rolleyes:

    No space for Walcott, Iwobi or Perez. Our offensive options are just :drool:

    What exactly can Ramsey do in the middle of the park that Oxlade can't? What I saw from ox was a santi-esque performance, spraying balls all over the park and none of that sideways backwards crap ramsey does. Defensively ox is quicker and more powerful than ramsey. he should start next to coquelin.

    prefereed xi for watford:


    bellerin mustafi koscielny gibbs

    ox coq

    walcott Özil perez


    lets face it iwobi has not been contributing much offensively and loses the ball way too much.

    for chelsea put in welbeck for perez

    Taking into account home game, the opposition, that Coq & Ramsey may or may not be fit, and that Lucas deserves a start (so does Welbeck but dont rush him) I'm going with this. Go for lots of goals, good for GD and builds up the feel good factor before Chelsea.

    People including Maitland-Niles because of a run out against Southampton's reserve team..

    All our other CMs are injured and we're playing Watford at home.

    Would take anyone who can play DCM, decent on the ball & mobile.

    We are pathetic in the position for a club our size... & no effective partnerships for a two.

    Could be his time to breakout.

    Well ramsey scores more goals and as we know that is the most important thing you want out of your CM.

    When was the last time Ramsey looked being a great player? 2012? Even though AOC is not consistent, he has a lot more to offer than Ramsey at any position. Physical strength, dribbling, pace, all ahead of Ramsey.

    One more player I think is indeed better than many current senior players is Holding, I think his height n size really is the best partnership for kos.

    Bellerin holding kos Monreal
    Walcott aoc Özil welbeck

    Gabriel ospina mustafi Gibbs Giroud Perez Ramsey

    Can anyone help me in knowing the official lineup of arsenal before 1 hour of the kick off in any match? If not the official lineup, atleast few players who starts the match.

    Requesting to suggest me some sources where I can get this information?

    Any help would be largely appreciated.

    Ramsey and Coquelin are injured?

    The Arsenal twitter account usually tweets team news roughly an hour before kick off.

    Failing that;

    These two twitter accounts are usually accurate with team news before we get it officially. They're not much use with anything else though, i.e- transfers ;).
