Official Arsenal team and preview of FA cup final

Arsene Wenger has responded to the brilliant performance and hat-trick of the Arsenal and England international speedster Theo Walcott against West Brom last week by giving him a place in the starting line up as the Gunners prepae for a second FA cup final at Wembley in the space of a year.

Not only has Theo got the nod but he keeps his position as centre forward with Olivier Giroud having to make do with a place on the subs bench. With the Big Frenchman are Jack Wilshere, Kieran Gibbs and David Ospina who also miss out, as does the Ox who is at least fit enough to make the squad.

Wenger has kept with his recent formation of Ramsey, Cazorla and Ozil and I assume that the Welshman will be playing on the right again although there is usually plenty of interchange between the creative players. Coquelin keeps his place which is a good idea as our opponents have plenty of danger in their own team, although their pacy front man Gabriel Agbonlahor only makes the bench.

Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal
Cazorla, Coquelin
Ramsey, Ozil, Alexis

subs: Ospina, Gabriel, Gibbs, Flamini, Wilshere, Chamberlain, Giroud

What we do not want is a repeat of the shaky start against Hull City in last season´s final but I think Arsenal should be more composed this time and we should be set to round the season off in style. COYG!

        schezney and per starting is a big mistake. We needed Gabriel and ospina, plus I think giroud would have given us a different option up front. I’m scared as fuuuk

              1. luvdaguns

                take a sedative bro, we are ripping em, only a matter of time, Merts been solid,

                1. seancali

                  Yeah but Ramsey has been very poor,very poor…Theo has been OK after the goal,he missed an open goal but made up for it with the goal.

        1. KickAssFan

          F***k it, Ramsey is handsome. He could be mistaken for me, just that I’m much taller. #winks

    Good lineup, although would’ve wanted Ramsey to be our CM or super sub rather than on the right wing..


  2. Mesut O-chill

    Came 1.5 hours early to an Arsenal bar in Chicago and it was already packed with Gooners. COYG lets defend our title let’s bring this trophy home!

  3. blondin

    gotta play aggressively and score couple goals early.
    Would be nice to have someone instead of Mert,and maybe make sense to have Giroud instead of Ozil.

  4. arsenalman365

    People may not like this, but Ospina may not have went to that ball or flap at it and let Benteke score. Szczesny is far more convincing collecting balls with his 6 foot 6 height.

  5. Justsoccerfan

    I don’t why Mert keep pump high ball up, we are playing Walcott not Giroud.

  6. Justsoccerfan

    I like Ramsey energy but he need to keep his composure and he will become WC.

    1. arsenalman365

      Composure is one of the best parts of Ramsey’s game! Imo to be WC he just needs to stay fit.

  7. Mick The Gooner

    Should be 2-0 up, but we’re at least making chances and performing well.

    1. Goonsquad8

      Ozil is a world class player what he does with the ball is magical. I just wish more fans could since it

        1. seancali

          He missed an open goal, how did he missed that???we could have been three or four goals up if it wasn’t for Theo and ramsey

    1. jib

      Theo just shut you the f*ck up. You’ve been shooting your mouth off since kickoff, I doubt we’ll be hearing from you for the rest of the match. A fan should support his team. But plastic is as plastic does.

  8. fred cowardly

    I kind of wish we had Giroud in there as an experienced striker but nevertheless we are still looking good.

    I’m impressed by Szczesny. He looks confident
    Obviously Alexis, Cazorla, Ozil look awesome

    Awesome save by Hart and Villa defense look strong.

    Anyway it’s just a matter of time for a breakthrough

  9. Justsoccerfan

    F*cling mert, giving pressure to the goali by passing back when there is a opponent near him.

  10. Arsenal 1st Knight.

    People are you guys this center referee come with his cards .. GIVE VILLA THE DAM F*K**G CARD REF.

    1. Arsenal 1st Knight.

      I’m sure his is view this match at the back side of his television set…

  11. Justsoccerfan

    Whatever the outcome of the match result, I am proud of the team, they really show it on the pitch.

  12. faza

    Danny Murphy: “I don’t think Theo is very comfortable on his left foot”
    (15 seconds later)
    Danny Murphy: “Its a great finish!…..on his weaker foot”

    What great banter!!!


  13. fred cowardly

    I had a feeling that shot would go in because Walcott was well open and he is a good finisher especially when he is open

    I hope this starts a goal rush for us. A good lead will ease our nerves 🙂

    1. Mesut O-chill

      Tends to happen when teams play against us. Need at least 2 more goals in the second

  14. juhislihis

    All our players have been impressive, even Sczcesny! Come on boys, keep it up, little tighter on the finish and bury this game already! I’m ready to party let’s do it!!!

  15. vijaygunner

    next goal koscielny surely? he’s scored very decisive goals in every last game of the season.

  16. mike1977

    Need a goal early in 2nd half and Villa will have to come out and try to score. Gonna be so open to counter attack after that. I’m predicting 4-0

  17. Mick The Gooner

    Villa have to press us for an equaliser now. Look who they’re facing when we break – Ă–zil, who is on it today. Walcott, the pace is frightening. Alexis, no comment.

  18. John Legend

    We look composed so far, as well as being patient for the right opening. We have been rewarded, I hope we are able to keep our calm until the end.

  19. ArseneIsYourDaddy

    The play against Arsenal mode:
    Hold on till halftime.
    Try to get one counter for a score.
    We have seen that too often.

  20. fred cowardly

    Alexis STUNNER!!!!!!!!

    I think I just crapped in My underwear but I Don’t care


  21. fred cowardly

    Seriously, that was a beauty by Alexis
    Walcott’s was good too but Alexis’s goal is goal of the match so far.

    More Goals please 🙂

  22. fred cowardly


    I still want more goals
    This is soooooo enjoyable right now

  23. vijaygunner

    didn’t know if it was a shirt pull on koscielny or he started celebrating after per scored

  24. Justsoccerfan

    How I wish sanchez got a small injury after this game that rule him out of the Copa America.

  25. Justsoccerfan

    I don’t know why ozil was sub, I think he was disappointed, he want to score today.

  26. Bigvalbowski

    Hes scored some great goals this year but GIROUD should NEVER EVER be 1st choice striker for Arsenal next season.

  27. seancali

    Giroud scored a world class goal,great job Olivier…. Well done. We are the champs…Chelsea here we come for the community shield
