is probably our first choice front 6
If Theo hits any kind of form, Ozil is going to make a lot of goals for him.
You wouldn't factor in Wilshere?
If I was picking the team I would rotate Wilshere and Ramsey. Wilshere is the better talent but you can't ignore the form Ramsey is currently in, so he shades it at the moment.
The only other problem is the ludicrous 3 game ban to Arteta. When he and Walcott are fit it's a pretty good problem to have; in fact when everyone's fit we should play Ramsey, Wilshere, Ozil, Cazorla, Arteta, Flamini, Diaby, Walcott, The Ox, Podolski and Giroud. The other teams will have to bring their own ball because they aren't getting a touch of ours! :)
Szczesny; Sagna, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Gibbs; Rosicky, Arteta, Ramsey; Cazorla, Ozil, Giroud.
Will be a fascinating matchup, undoubtedly. Big bad Mert has his work cut out against Suarez, literally the worst type of player he can come up against; nibble, agile, twirling, twisting coupled with a low centre of gravity. Think there's going to be goals, and I'mma say 2-2.
5 points clear.
Judgement Day. November 10th.
Ramsey for PM!! :D
(Maybe he can give kiwis a good go ;))
When will he stop scoring... hopefully on Sunday!
We're all going to make it.
Arsenal have scored more goals (12) in the final 15 minutes of games than any team in the Premier League this season."
Looks like Berbatov could be enroute to the Emirates. If cheap it would be a great little acquisition to compliment Giroud who can't shoulder all the goalscoring burden, especially since Bendtner's now injured.
Went to my first game last night! The fans are incredible, and we were given a show in the first half. But what were we playing at in the second? We just let them come at us over and over, Cazorla was a chocolate fireguard and almost single handedly let them back into the game. However, it's the performances like that which start to make me believe we can definitely win the league, on the back foot away from home and the big German plays a blinder. Man of the match by a country mile for me! Come on the Arsenal!
I don't know if I like Berbatov. I'd rather a younger promising guy (like that German fella named Julian?).
Draxler's incredible, like really, really good. But he's not an out-and-out striker, he's more of an advanced CAM (mostly on the left), or even number 10. The latter's his favourite, too. You've got an abundance of talent lining that position, but an acquisition of that magnitude presents the good sort of selection headache you want. Cheap, experienced striker who can chip in with a few goals is what Arsenal realistically need. Gotta' remember it's January after all.
Draxler looks like what we are aiming for, Berbatov if we can't. Draxler can be played up front, or attacking midfield. We'd get a striker in the summer, most likely Costa or Benzema.
Sent from my Omni 4.4 Galaxy S3. Proud Googy Beta tester.
Do we have enough time to wrangle this?
Also, how do we know Berbatov would be motivated to play? I'd rather get a loan now and worry about a permanent guy in the summer.
Don't think you're getting Draxler in this window, and it looks as if Arsene's taking a leaf outta' the Pep School of Midfield philosophy and just buying midfielders to ply their trade in unnatural positions.
Wish it was like FIFA and we could just stick anyone in there. I'd have Ramsey there. :snicker
Seriously though, Poldi scored some goals this morning, just need to get some depth, no one one necessarily spectacular (although that would be welcome too). :)
No Draxler, but it's looking like it'll happen eventually. Yous did get Kallstrom, who will be a valuable asset.
Yeah no draxler or any striker.
But I guess we have TGSTEL? Maybe the hype will self-fulfill...
Could be to the detriment of the season, but I still think City will win it by a bit. Bastards.
