No Fear! Arsenal must go for it in Swansea

You might think that a bit of a cautious approach might be called for from Arsenal as Arsene Wenger prepares his players for the Premier League game away to Swansea City. After all, we are coming off the back of a heavy defeat away to Sheffield Wednesday and we are in the middle of an injury crisis.

Not only that, but Swansea did the double over Arsenal last season and they Garry monk does not have a single injury to affect his team selection, so perhaps a tight game might suit us better and an away point would be seen as a decent result, yes? No.

The Welsh team have their own problems and have only won once in their last six Premier League games, and that was over Aston Villa who have an even worse recent record. That win may have boosted their confidence but not by much, while Arsenal should not be too badly affected by the Capital One Cup loss.

So we need to be positive and put the cup game firmly to one side. Also, the injury to Theo Walcott means that Olivier Giroud will lead the line and the in form Frenchman is more effective when Arsenal are dominating the ball and pushing forward.

Joel Campbell, if it is the Costa Rican who gets the nod, will be the only Arsenal player who has not been a regular this season so we should not change our approach and worry about our own team, we should go into the game full of confidence and take it to the Swans. Do you agree?

      Does baby ever listen to you or is she hard of hearing, I know a guy who knows a dude that can build her a set of bionic ears.

      Hope Giroud wins every 50 50 like last week and is everywhere on pitch, that’s the Giroud we love. COYG.

    1. psytripps says:

      Second in the league and back to back fa winners what are you on? Just look at Man u. Better the devil you know

  3. Sack-Wenger says:

    I think Campbell will start, not sure if he can do the full 90. I suspect Wenger will then bring on Debuchy and push Bellerin forward.
    I am sure many would like to see that.

    We can beat Swansea.

    We just need to not give them any cheap headers in and around the six yard box. That tends to be how they beat us and cause us problems — getting good deliveries into the box and peeling away from our centre-halves.

  7. Samuel Akinsola Adebosin says:

    Bobby, good morning to you and to all the Gooners. Happy Saturday to the Boss, the Gunners and to us. Amen. If one falls, he gets up from where he fell. We cannot say because we fell down at Hillsborough the other night, we won’t get up from hillsborough again. Winning today at the Liberty Stadium against Swansea City AFC means we’ve gotten up from our falls at Hillsborough. Ofcourse the Gunners MUST not fear the Swans for anything. Rather than to fear them, the Gunners MUST scattered(disorganized their cohesion) to put the Swans totally OUT OF THEIR GAME ORDERLINESS. SFC 0-3 AFC @ full time plus added time.

    Swansea always troublesome, I hope Le coq can deal with that bald player, forgot his name.

  10. Yung-P says:
