CONFIRMED official Arsenal team to face BATE tonight

We were told by Arsene Wenger to expect an experienced line up tonight and we certainly have that, and it looks like we are going to be going to be going for goals.

This was my predicted line-up earlier….

Ospina
Debuchy, Mertesacker, Holding
Chambers, Coquelin, Elneny, Maitland-Niles
Walcott, Wilshere, Giroud

And this is the confirmed team….

Well that is nearly exactly what I predicted, but I also said that I expected Welbeck to play at some point, and Wenger has actually picked him to start as well. But who would have predicted him to replace Mertesacker!

You can always expect a surprise from Wenger…

    Why did Arsene cross the road?

    So that he wouldn’t have to make a signing.

    Ok so glad o got your attention. Look this is the ‘real’ Arsenal team. Ever since Wenger has started ‘spending big’ he has lost the club’s identity. Glad Wilshere, Walcott and Hiroud can show us what our attacking prowess is really about.

      good to note that playera from our first team from just 1- 2 years ago are part of our 2nd squad… Coquelin Walcott Wilshere Giroud Debuchy welbeck etc.. shows how stronv the squad are.. we just need 2 more world class players in 1st team to compete… one at defence and the other at CDM..

      It’s the usual and shaky 4-2-3-1, with Wilshere in Ozil’s position (central attacking midfielder) and Welbeck in Sanchez’s position (inverted left winger).

    I approve of playing the extra forward in place of MERTS. BATE ARE A POOR SIDE AND WE WILL GO AT THEM WITH THIS ELEVEN. I really expect a comfortable win by several goals. FAMOUS LAST WORDS!

    What did the sharpener say to the pencil?

    You’re looking sharp!

    Ok so glad o got your attention. Sorry for using humour. Why is Debuchy not a starter? Shows what is goi faring for our club!

    What’s the difference between Scrooge and Wenger?

    Scrooge spent some money in the end

    Ok so I have your attention now. Sorrr for using a joke to do so. Why doesn’t Walcott start every game? He is obviously a star!
