    Are you stupid? When did I say Gibbs could play on the right? If you read what I wrote, you'd see I had Gibbs on the left so I'm not sure where you got that from... in fact, here's the line up I posted:
    *Gibbs and Gabriel highlighted since you obviously have trouble identifying them.

    I was responding to the guy who said that Gabriel couldn't play on the left side of the back 3 when Gibbs is playing LB, which there is absolutely no evidence or basis for because we've never seen it before.

    Next time try reading the whole conversation properly before you butt in and try to make yourself look like a badass over the internet.

    yes anything in theory can happen, but IMO it's pushing to say 'all form goes out the window' - i think form is still a guide

    they'd only be worried if we really blow away Citeh and i can't see that happening

    Cool, fair play that's your opinion and I respect it. I personally feel that Monreal has been a disaster for 90% of the season, and was abysmal against Middlesbrough on the weekend.

    I do, however, invite you tell me when you've ever seen Gabriel play on the left side of a back three in order to say that he can't play there. I assume you think this because he's right footed?

    I agree, on paper they would be favourites,but if our bloody team turned up and played, they could give anyone a game.

    Mark Tobias Mr. Agreeable

    Which is why it is the dumbest formation ever! It is one thing to change the formation mid-season. But then to 'experiment' with players out of position is just ********. Gabriel is clearly not great technically which is what you need if your weak foot is touching the byline every time we get caught up field with Gibbs further ahead than Alexis. Or in your formation Ramsey.... EVEN WORSE. As Troopz would say "****ing Ramsey, blud?"

    Mark Tobias Mr. Agreeable

    Yes and the fact that he is not very technical. He'll be conceding corners & throw ins in his own half all ****ing game!

    Bournemouth is 2-0 up on Boro at 43 mins. They don't seem to be having a problem at all.

    We're ****e at present and the only wins we've had since I lost my baby teeth are against relegation candidates and teams not good enough to be in the league. That tells you where exactly we are at present.

    The only thing in our favour is that City can be atrocious at the back and we do actually have some very talented players. However, on the flip side we have a manager that is outwitted pretty much every time by any manager with some tactical nous and a semi-decent team.

    Of course I want us to win but I reckon we'll be valiant losers here.

    Mustafi is injured for this so same as vs Boro I guess. I wouldn't mind seeing AMN in MF. It's a gamble but we need someone switched on MF.

    Boro down to 10 since the 20th minute I think. Gotta help.

    Ended with Bournemouth winning 4-0. It doesn't help that much.

    Bellerin would leave Citeh so much space to attack they'd be 4-0 up at half time - no way should he start

    Think we'll return to a variation of 4-3-3 tomorrow. Wenger's rationale for three at the back was to deal with our aerial vulnerability, which won't be a problem against City.
