    West Ham vs Arsenal

    [​IMG]

    My Preferred Lineup


    Cech
    Chambers - Koscielny - Monreal
    Debuchy - Wilshere - Xhaka - Kolasinac
    Özil - Alexis
    Lacazette
    The changes I would make to the lineup we put out against Southampton are Chambers, Debuchy, and Wilshere in for Per, Bellerin, and Ramsey (who is injured). Chambers deserves a shot imo and would provide some much needed passing ability in the back, Debuchy has been good in the Europa league while Bellerin needs a rest after many games and some poor form, and Wilshere comes in for the injured Ramsey. The rest stays the same.

    We've generally been quite good against West Ham, though Moyes looks like he has rejuvenated them in recent games, putting a strong fight against City and beating Chelsea. I'm optimistic but we shouldn't take a win for granted.​

    We’ll win if our defenders manage to get through the game without getting tackled on the half way line.

    2-0 West Ham.

    Get through the first 10 and we'll win. So we'll lose.

    If the players have got over the Utd game, then we could scrape a draw. If we lose the game, Wenger will blame the Utd game or the ref, possibly both.

    Was coming in to post something like this. We're coming off two disappointing results, they're riding high after a massive win -- not the mental dichotomy you'd like to see going into a pseudo-derby.

    They got an early goal against Chelsea, surely it can’t happen to us for a third game. :lol:

    Hoping we don’t go to drastic and put in Elneny or Coquelin for Ramsey.

    5 goals in a game where one side is managed by Moyes and has no proper strikers? :lol:

    It'll be an incredibly boring game with us sitting back and praying that you beat yourself through stupidity defensively. You'll be camping our area for 90 minutes -- guessing 75% possession or so -- and we'll get a half chance or two through some awful team pressing when you lose the ball.

    West Ham 0-2 Arsenal. A goal midway through and a goal when we get desperate at the end.

    Well, how did you win against the defending champion then?

    We parked the bus against a team that has relatively struggled going forward this season and got lucky with an early goal.

    Should stop trying to predict our games. We'll probably lose 2-0 in a typically frustrating away game where we have 75 % poss and ourshoots them at a ratio of 4-1. But it can just as well develop into a rout and we score four or five.

    Wilshere ain't half the player Ramsey is but should get the chance if Aaron is out. Please no Coq or Elnenny! Pro Football is supposed to be entertainment.

    Waiting to see Elneny Xhaka midfield to add continuity and side ways passing with Lacazette dropped for Giroud because he is moaning about playing time.

    Trust me they did. Reactionary tweets were abound after the game.

    Not me. I said in multiple threads that we needed to be careful because we have this game every year where we beat a top team and think we are going to have it easy. Last year it was Chelsea, year before that it was United.
