Boom, boom, boom, all guns blazing! by K.M.
Champions league football tonight folks! How’ve you been? Do you feel excited about tonight? Arsenal are already almost out of the tournament with both feet and yet you can’t seem to brush of the positivity that is coming for tonight’s game.
We slept through the first game like last year and the year before that, and again we’re going for miracles on the return. It probably won’t happen. Monaco are solid defensively, while we are capable of missing quite a good amount of chances.
Today Wenger has his favorite game to play. All out attack! Question is what kind of side do we field for the game? Coquelin has been outstanding but in a game where we need all the goals we can get, does Wenger risk it all from the start or wait for the second half?
I think Wenger will start with Le Coq and Cazorla in midfield. Alexis, Ozil and Welbeck in front and Giroud up top. Walcotts finishing was awful against West Ham so i think he’d end up on the bench. Another player i’m not sure if Wenger will start is Ramsey.
I think Ramsey needs to start, because he brings presence in the box. I think Wenger will start with an attacking minded side, that still features Coquelin and if we don’t score enough or any, he will risk it in the second half. I’d love to see Welbeck and Giroud up top, Ramsey and Cazorla in midfield with Alexis and Theo on the wings.
This will give us a lot of speed, two tall and heavy center forwards and solid midfielders to put through balls. We have a big squad and Wenger has a decision to make as of how committed we will be to go for miracles.
After Liverpools n-th in a row lucky win, we are really tight up there. Everyone is targeting second with City looking really bad and Pellegrini edging towards the sack. We will have a massive game vs Newcastle at the weekend while Liverpool and United face each other in a make or break game.
We almost did it against Milan and Bayern. Has the time come for us to do the miraculous comeback? I really hope so.
