I remember the last time we tried to make a point to Alexis.
We just confirmed how much we needed him.
Hopefully that’s not the case today.

I think this is more about him playing 180 minutes in south america

But the way I see it, he is not going to sign for us, so we might as well go ahead and use him to his last fucking drop of energy. Who cares if he got burned out, let man city worry about that.

If we’re going to use him, we would be best served to make sure he’s useful

We should have enough to beat them without Sanchez. I would have dropped Ramsey after last match.

A must win game. COYG!

Yea but to be fair to the manager, Sanchez isn’t in the best of form right now. Last season when there was still a possibility of of Sanchez signing a new deal, the clubs hands were restricted. Now, Wenger can play Sanchez when he’s fit and ready. I support this decision.

I’m just relieved that Welbeck isn’t our target man today

Or is he..

Considering the injuries he’s had, I think people need to lay off Welbz a bit and give him time to return to form and get his confidence back. It looks like that goal for England has given him a boost!

Come on Blogs. We can’t ignore 1 more article on Ox’s Liverpool début.
Off-topic but I can’t help it. Still smiling

He didn’t pull out trees in Liverpool’s midfield?

well at least we have put out a coherent team,
starting a game without shooting ourselves in the foot beforehand,
is always a bonus……….

Ramsey in midfield is NEVER a coherent team selection.

Couldn’t agree more

Ramsey will probably score today and many will think that justifies him playing week in week out. He would not get in any top teams midfield

Mustrum Ridcully

It really depends on the manager’s instructions. Coleman gets the best out of him. Perhaps the fault is the instructions or lack of.

Weirdbowski

and yet Wales have been managing this for years……

He is number 10 and second striker for wales. Not holding midfield

To use Wales as an example just typifies the blinkered who struggle to differentiate between mediocrity and quality.

Hopefully it’s just that Alexis isn’t as fresh coming back later from international duty. Sub on @ 60″?

It was in jest dude! Honestly I wasn’t to bothered to see him go if I’m honest, and wish him no malice. I’m on the Reiss Nelson hype train now.

Ramsey again. He unbalances the team. Put the Coq in there to screen the back four.

Thought Iwobi was one of our better players in preseason – was hoping to see a bit of a shake up with him involved!

He\'s got no hair but we don\'t care...

Who gives a crap about Alexis, apart from citeh and Alexis himself.

In other news, Scouse twonks conceed 4. Haha! Media are such a bunch of super douche bags.

Oh and why is Xhaka, a player slower than an overweight slug, still in the team. #addsnothing

Start Giroud ahead of Welbeck FFS. Welbeck is just as useless as they get. I don’t know what Giroud hasn’t done which has put him lower down the pecking order..behind Welbeck. When you are having such a poor run as a team..I guess you better start players who are actually more mentally strong.

A win is a must today.

I dunno if the first XI is up to winning the league (we’ll see), but f*ck me, that’s a strong bench.

Maybe we’re not in such bad shape after all?

Your comment is either cynical or delusional, not sure whats worse.

So I expressed skepticism that we have a title winning team, alongside positive comments about the bench, and I’m either cynical or delusional?

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that you’re a moron.

‘Maybe we are not in such a bad shape after all’ – thats super sceptical indeed.

Ox loves a good 4-0 drubbing with Liverpool doesn’t he?

Actually he has gone one better this week.

Wenger is really going all in on Welbeck. Maybe he’ll find a good run of form and find his scoring booots. At the very least he tries hard.

We should keep Sanchez on the bench, unless he signs a new deal. Be strong!!!! We play him now, we will loose him for free next year. Let him sit on the bench, then he can walk wherever he wants. We just gave the best midfielder to Mug, they got 0-5!!!

Chamakh123

Chamberlain was far from being our best midfielder.

Why not play Ramsey next to Ozil, and play Coq or Elneny next to Xhaka?

4-4-2 diamond is good. Bellerin and kolasinac can both be 1 man flank.
