Wenger in the past when he has been tottering has had a get out of jail game come along. Tomorrow is that game so I have feeling 2-1 to us or we win on penalties.

Agree4 Disagree0

It's a no lose situation for us, If we get stuffed hey ho everyone half expects it while if our players put in a performance and make a real game of it we will all be happy regardless of the result.
If our players give everything we will be happy.

Shame no Lacazette as that limits our scoring options - really need a fit Rambo as outside of him it’s down to Nacho or Kola!

Back 4 as normal

Midfield - Rambo Jack Xhaka Kola

Up front - Ozil and Pea

Need to have energy, pressing and commitment in midfield

Midfield also offers a bit of goal threat

I would have put Welbeck in over Kola but then we have no attacking option on the Bench.

Shame we don’t have Giroud or Laca as we have limited options where as money bags $ity have loads.

Yeah it's all about money SY our measly 200 million spend over the last 4 years gives us little chance of finishing above big spenders like Spurs Liverpool and Leicester:-)
Mate just accept we haven't spent wisely or got the best out of our investments rather than keep making excuses for us, only by doing this can we ever hope for the future to be different from the recent past.

62 - squad cost at start of the season:

Club Country Cost (euros)
Manchester City England 853
Paris St-Germain France 850
Manchester United England 784
Chelsea England 644
Barcelona Spain 628
Real Madrid Spain 497
Juventus Italy 470
Liverpool England 437
Arsenal England 416
Tottenham England 361

No excuses but you be realistic - we can’t compete with City and Utd or Chelsea but some expect us to finish above them

Have we invested best as possible - no but limited funds don’t always help.

May be : Rambo -Jack -Maitland-Niles - Kola

Bit more mobile.

SY mate let's conceed that Utd City Chelsea have an unbeatable advantage over us and any points we take off them is an amazing achievement, that's 12 points a season and we are currently 27 behind city and after Thursday that might well be 30 pts with 10 games to go?
No matter if City spent 1 trillion on players they can still only field 11 at a time same as everyone else and no money gap explains away a 30 pts gap and it being mathematically impossible for us to catch them with over a quater of the season still left to go.
Sorry mate it sounds a lot like the same old excuses to me.

24 Feb 2018 17:07:28
I do state NO EXCUSES and that we haven’t invested best.

Like my team for tomorrow?

24 Feb 2018 17:39:03
I think its going to be 2-1 to the Arsenal, or 5-0 to City. We'll know after the first few minutes.

24 Feb 2018 17:41:23
Yes SY mate but I'd play Elneney or Even Chambers in Xhaka place as DM or even Kol as DM and use Danny on the left.
I know it's a big game to experiment with an untried DM in but we have a history against City of playing a previously untried player there with huge success, Le Coq made his DM debut against City away and we win 0 2 :-)

24 Feb 2018 19:02:15
I would swap Xhaka and Maitland-Niles while playing Kola in a familiar Left midfield position

Power, Energy and mobility - think mobility will be key against a fluid City team while Jack and Rambo offer a turn of pace or a late run into the box.

Out the traps strong and fast unlike against Spurs - need to learn from that

Elneny is a bit pedestrian and Chambers needs to sort his confidence out first.

24 Feb 2018 19:05:10
May be Nketiah and AMN could be the surprises then as he has to be a better option up front the Welbeck as a striker so Welbeck can replace Kola in second half if needed.

24 Feb 2018 19:51:07
Obviously we've got to keep it tight at the back as we can, I knew that's usailly as tight as a shirt that's 3 times to big for you but we have to do the best WE can, plus try and make it difficult for them to simply pass and move through our Mf like a hot knife through butter and put pressure by breaking at speed.
If it was me picking the team I'd go 3 4 3 playing Ozil and Ramsey behind Pea with strict instructions not to come into our final 3rd

Mustafi Kos Monreal
Belerin Elney Jack Kol

Ramsey Ozil
Not brilliant but personally I think it's as good as anything else we can put together.
