Official teams and preview of Arsenal v QPR

There is a rare starter for Arsenal today in the shape of our Czech Republic international Tomas Rosicky. The move to bring the midfielder into the starting line-up is probably being forced on to the manager, but with Arsene Wenger still having to cope without almost every first choice central midfielder in the Gunners squad, the Frenchman is probably delighted that Rosicky has at least made himself available.

There is no Chamberlain, Ramsey, Arteta or Wilshere because Wenger seems to have spectacularly offended the god of football injuries somehow, so Cazorla and Rosicky will have to make sure that Mathieu Flamini is nit left too much on his own.

At least the Gunners are playing at home against a team we should easily beat in QPR. Hopefully that will mean that we are attacking almost constantly and the need to protect our back four will not be too much in evidence.

Szczesny
Debuchy, Mertesacker, Monreal, Gibbs
Flamini, Rosicky, Cazorla
Alexis, Giroud, Welbeck

subs: Ospina, Bellerin, Chambers, Coquelin, Walcott, Podolski, Campbell

The in-form and prolific QPR striker Charlie Austin is clearly the danger man but we have plenty of those ourselves and as long as we take on this game with the right frame of mind, it should end up with three points and a lot happier time for Arsenal fans.

          Giroud red card. We have too many dumb players. Averagely, talentless and too big for their own shoes.

    Not comfortable with Monreal at CB but I am hoping he will prove me wrong and have a good game.

    Otherwise looks like a decent side, but still do not understand why Podolski is not given a chance to start

      you’re spot on, really need Kos in back, Oz in middle and Theo up top, otherwise we seem to be a mid table squad… even arteta seems to spread the ball around better then flamini,

    I sat here saying Carzola must take penalty and then Alexis misses.

    Rosiky and Carzola look our best players.

    Play Rosiky more Wenger

    When we put crosses in the box why do only ever have 1 player in there.

    Watching Chelsea they have 3 or 4.

    OG, Welbeck and someone else must make sure they move their asses

    I must say, OG looking much better than last yr, seems to get into open spaces deeper in the box, i think up top w theo, assuming theo gets healthy, could be productive…

    Just curious, why was Mertesacker on the right wing at times during that half? As our only real centre back I’d rather he stayed put.

      I was saying the same. He got skinned earlier own when he was in qpr RB position, he then was square all body positioning wrong and a one two later qpr were in the clear for a counter..

    Rosicky can turn out to be a deep lying playmaker, he doesn’t need to go forward to give throughball over the top.

    Respective team talks:

    Redknapp: you lot need to Adam and Eve in yourselves and stop walking around like you’ve got a pair of Alan Whicker’s on. All I care about is getting my battle and money and heading down the battlecrusier so get your act together.

    Wenger: *tear drops down eye* wtf is mulled wine? *bursts into tears* it was warm. *Steve Bould steps in* Nacho and Per, try not to **** this up. Welbeck, not sure what your game is but try to do something useful. *Wenger gets up* Why would it be warm?

    Well done Giroud for getting sent off.

    You can guarantee that one of those idiots will f**k it up.

    Last week it was Mertseacker

    This week its Giroud.

    Is there a competition at Arsenal to see who can be the biggest idiot ?

    Because if there is then Wenger is leading by a mile…

    Now Welbeck will lead line against Westham and Southampton.

    Maybe this will mean Theo starts on Sunday

    Might have to keep Podolski

    Campbell might get his chance.
    Theo Rambo Ozil Chamberlain coming back
    So plenty of options.

    Well done.

    The weekly defensive collapse begins.

    Giroud obviously has competition for idiot of the week with Debuchy.

    And to think they get paid Β£40000+ a week for this when so many a far more deserving.
