Eisfeld and Meade plead for Arsenal start tonight

Arsene Wenger has vowed to play a strong Arsenal team in tonight’s COC quarter-final against Bradford, but that doesn’t mean that won’t be playing a certain amount of second string prospects. The little left-back Jernade Meade looked very competent against Olympiakos a couple of weeks ago and is hoping that Wenger will show his appreciation by playing him again tonight.

Meade said: “I grew in confidence as the match wore on and I can do better but hopefully I will get more chances.

“Hopefully the boss will have me in his thoughts for Bradford. I would love to do that, but it is all down to him.

“I need to get my name out there, get people watching me and maybe I can go out on loan soon as well to build up my experience.

“I have so much to improve on, but hopefully the boss sees something in me. This is the last year of my contract and hopefully I can earn another one.”

Thomas Eisfeld is one of Arsenal’s most exciting prospects along with Serge Gnabry, and he is also hoping to get an outing this evening, although he is aware that Bradford are not going to be easy opponents. “I heard they beat Wigan in the last round, so it should be hard if they’ve beaten a Premier League team,” Eisfeld said. “In Germany we say that cup games have their own rules, because anyone can beat anyone.

“At the moment, I’m very happy. I don’t know what the coaches think. Of course I hope I get the chance to play in the game, it would make me really pleased.”

The good news for Arsenal fans is that Andre Santos is still out injured, but also Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Laurent Koscielny are not available yet so there will definitely be some reserves on the pitch. But how many players can he risk resting in such an important game?

    I think we can make a fool of the formbook and beat Bradford tonight, if we play at our best.

    Eisfield is our Goetze. Remember that he was used more by Borrusia Dortmund before Goetze was used.

    Eisfeld has earned a start. Should also be promoted to the bench as well for league games.

    Would like to see podolski start up front tonight, he only played 5 mins at the weekend so he should be well rested. Gervinho and Gnabry on the wings if he’s fit and Eisfeld, Ramsay and Coqulain in the midfield. Meade, Vermalean, JD and Jenk in defense.

    Should win easily with that team and would also be giving some of the young lads good first team experience playing with first team players. The young lads need to play with the first team players to gain good experience no point throwing all the young lads into a team together might as well play a reserve game!

    It was a rumour I read this morning and laughed at it, there’s no way that we will try and sign Nani from Manchester United. His wages, for one thing, would be far out of our league. Clearly, this was a message to Theo Walcott – no-one is irreplaceable.
    So why, on derby day when his team were facing Manchester City, Nani was pictured at Arsenal’s training ground at London Colney

    nani was indeed at arsenal training ground on derby day what do you guys think

    Although I understand the thirst for silverware among the Arsenal faithful (me included), it is vital that our youth get a run out. It is a quarter final, I wouldn’t however risk my seniors to play side two tiers below us! Trust the youngsters! What say?

    looking forward to the emergence of the u-23 team – Eisfeld, Toral and Wilshire in the mids are a beautiful core. Raised under the tutelage and work ethic of Rosiky and Corzola.
