      • Parisian Weetabix

        Kind of. But so long as our foreign legion do the job, I won’t mind too much.

      • No… Dinosaur mentality to think otherwise. Most of our greatest modern players weren’t British. Club football doesn’t have anything to do with nationality. COYG

      • Yes it is…

      • only in so far as it means no english players gain experience from the match towards the benefit of the national side, but its a side issue at best, most important is arsenal win with no injuries then comes the attractiveness of play

    • reading has. lets cheer for them instead. huh?

    • We do not support Arsenal based on the passport of the players. Am sure after the 3points today, it will not be a shame!

    • Bit of a shame there are no alcoholics in the starting lineup. They were the good ol’ days.

    • Ramsey started genius

      • I know Ramsey isn’t English but maybe the guy would get some love if he was from the haters. I was being sarcastic…

  2. Bit of a shame there are no Irish players in the starting line up

  3. I sigh at the thought that there are no Greek players to be found in the starting line up.

  4. I really don’t know why podolski on the bench and Ramsey playing?

    Thumb up 1 Thumb down 23

    • Poldi hasn’t been 100% fit and Ramsey is playing well. Wtf is everyone’s problem with the guy. (Best Ali g voice) Is it cos he is welsh?

      Thumb up 27 Thumb down 2

    • well podolski has an ankle issue, ramsey is better for ball retention and has a good work ethic so unless we need to chase the game theres no need to risk poldi

  5. Kind of a shame there are no Martians in the line up.

    Wait…I meant, Canadians.

  6. Why Gervinho!

  7. Rosicky!!

  8. Parisian Weetabix

    Good to see Rosicky getting a run out. The one positive point I took from our display against Bradford was some of his combination play with Cazorla, which sadly we haven’t seen repeated since. Let’s hope they can get us to that lusted after fourth/third place. COYG!
