Don’t care how today, just get three points!!!

Here we go again then, Saturday 3pm kick off against Wolverhampton Wanderers, a side that has just started to pick up a few good results. Wolves are unbeaten in the last four games having picked up eight points from a possible twelve.

The away game at Wolves earlier in the season was a funny old affair, Ramsey started in the midfield with Diaby I think, with Song on the bench. Wolves had the better start and for twenty-five minutes we were a bit on the back foot.

But what happened next told a story, Diaby (who back then played just as he did against Barca) was having a nightmare, he was woeful. He picked up an injury and had to go off, then on came Alex Song. From that moment on the game changed, Ramsey, for one, suddenly seemed as if someone had given him an injection of ‘confidence’ – he played well, really well. In fact the whole team picked up the pace and found their rhythm.

By the time the first half was over, so was the game, 3-0 up!

Eduardo started that game – I think he will start today aswell. Sadly though, one player we know who won’t is Ramsey!!

Wolves handed us a couple of own goals that day the other two were scored by Fabregas and Arshavin, neither will be playing tomorrow!

We ended up winning 4-1, but the scoreline didn’t tell the whole tale, Wolves had their chances and but for some last-ditch defending by us and a few wayward shots it could have been very different. Kevin Doyle is a dangerous player and could hurt any team on his day, but between Vermaelen and Sol, he should be kept out.

As said, Wolves are no mugs and I don’t expect Mick McCarthy to play anything other than his strongest side, he won’t risk a hefty fine again, shame he risked the first one. I do understand why he did though….

So with all our injured players the team tomorrow kind of picks itself, unless of course Arsene does decide to make drastic changes with Barca in mind.

We have no Cesc, Arshavin, Gallas, Clichy and Denilson are doubts – I don’t believe they are injured for one minute, they are being rested!!

We have a squad, a squad that should be full of players who are more than capable of slotting into the side and continuing the Arsenal way, if not, then why are we keeping them, why are we as a club paying them?

With that in mind, I expect us to do exactly that and continue where we left off the last time we played at the Emirates, in the league I mean…

I think we will see changes – but here is the team I think AW will play…


Eboue Sol TV Traore

Song Nasri Rosicky/Diaby

Theo Nik/Eduardo Vela

And with a few reserves on the bench, mainly because that’s all we have left πŸ™‚

But hey, no disrespect to Wolves, they are a team we should beat, if we can’t and don’t then we don’t deserve to be in the title race. We are at home, on our green silky grass and every players knows how to play on it. So no excuses, no half-hearted performances.

We need grit and fire in the bellies today and a great performance to get us three points.

Most of all, play with pride and passion, the way this man always did……..

First off, lets hope for a bore draw at lunchtime thenΒ come 5pm, we can shout ‘ We’re behind you’ πŸ™‚

Have a great day all, allΒ three points will make sure I do….

    Morning all

    votes yesterday were exactly 50/50…

  2. Morning! I’m hoping for a big win today and a hattrick from the invisible man Carlos Vela!

    Would love to see Carlos and Theo running at those dodgy Barca full backs on Tuesday as well!

  3. rico says:

    Morning rsd, QoS, I dont know why Vela hasn’t been played, his chance must be here now with AA out..

    rsd 2 πŸ˜‰

  4. vela or dudu

    at guess vela depending on fitness he is in squad and you got you wish Eastmond, Merida in also

  5. W.A.T.H says:


    I agree with that sentiment…….. Pace will scare the crap out of barca… Theo, Vela and Traore must be considered although a little unconventional it could do the trick and they would def not expect that AND really would give us balance and not hard the defensive side of the team at all if picked in the right positions…! Clichy, Tra n Vela on the left…! Nothing wrong with that at all in my opinion…!

  6. rico says:

    Depends rsd, if Merida is off in the summer then I wouldn’t play him, I would rather Barazite has a game..

    Morning WATH, Clichy is a doubt I think.

  7. clichy and denilson were doubts but aw said in squad and might play but if they have slight knock would think save for tues

  8. you seen Cesc believe’s
    “I have to cling to the hope that we can get through at the Nou Camp, win our semi-final and I might be fit for the Champions League final. ‘That might be asking a lot but it is my dream and what I pray for.’

    right see you peeps later have to go to the outlaws

  9. W.A.T.H says:

    Rico… Said on dot com last night denilson and Gael both fit 2 play…!

  10. rico says:

    Both should start then I guess, i think the defence will be interesting, whether Sol plays or Song to get them used to eachother for Tuesday..

  11. rico says:

    I think the chavs will beat the mancs today, cant see berbytoff getting passed the old shagger πŸ˜‰

  12. W.A.T.H says:

    Keep Sol in cotton wool I hope…..
    Sagna at centre half with TV…………. πŸ˜‰

    Song in midfield…!

  13. W.A.T.H says:

    We need those to scumbags 2 draw Rico…. either one wins it makes things real hard to see where else they gonna drop points…! 0-0 mass brawl loads sent off adn few nasty injuries would be me fine…!

  14. rico says:

    I want them to draw wath, but i think the chavs will win… 😦 I like your way of thinking…

  15. K-TR7 says:

    Morning.we should play our strongest 11 today to wrap up the game early.i watched a couple of rosicky clips on youtube and i noted that his defensive attributes are so underrated.he is an excellent tackler,covers excellently for clichy and always looks for the forward pass.he is like our own version of tevez and i suspect his contribution today by aw will be with one eye on barca.with him on the left ahead of clichy alves’ contribution will be minimized since he&clichy have a good partnership.morzart also links up our play so well rarely wasting a pass.barca may concentrate on walcott and co but i think our forgotten man TR7 will be key.if you rewatch the barca game you’ll see my point.

  16. rico says:

    Morning KTR7, that’s what I would do to, there is nothing worse than to see a mixed bunch play and struggle, we need the pressure off of us and early – 3-0 half-time and then subs on πŸ™‚

  17. raif says:

    morning roadsters,,

    im expecting 3 points today and with little injurys as possible.. wolves will be a heard team to beat, but we are at home so its a matter of time before we open them up,

  18. rico says:

    morning raif, the fans need to be vocal today to, we need to get behind the team, look how they lifted the side against barca..

  19. W.A.T.H says:

    I’m off rico catch ya lata 2nite………… be good…!

  20. JonJon says:

    morning all

    theres plenty of reasons to be worried today but although we need to show them respect we need to remember we are the arsenal and its wolves were playing..they shit…

    no less than three points is expected cesc or no cesc we have the squad to beat these bums..

  21. rico says:

    Laters wath, enjoy the game and stay of the pop!!

    morning JJ, nasri can fill the cesc role easy enough, we are at home, he likes the emirates… πŸ˜‰

  22. JonJon says:

    have a good one popeye.. πŸ˜‰

    speak later mate

  23. rico says:

    popeye πŸ˜†

  24. JonJon says:

    of course he can rico…

    as far as the little teams are concerned we still have a good squad…

  25. rico says:

    what score you going for today JJ??

    The good thing is that WW have got themselves away from the bottom three, I hate us playing against sides who are scrapping for points at the end of the season… I get to nervous 😦

  26. rico says:

    chavs have left Drogba on the bench, he he been up to no good or something?

  27. JonJon says:

    6-0 rico

    just watch

    i think the drogba think is anchovi not changing a winning formula…

  28. JonJon says:

    a draw or a chelsea win today

  29. rico says:

    bloomin heck jj, your confident – chavs have to still play dippers and spuds dont they, more points lost in those i think..

  30. JonJon says:

    its all about numbers rico

    maunre are four points clear the chavs are three…

    so the mancs cant win today..but we can afford the chavs to…like u say theyve still got to go play the potatoes and the wheeltrim stealers away..

    the only other game i see the mancs dropping points in is away to citeh although the loss of rooney will test them..

    we need to win every game now..just to keep the pressure on

  31. rico says:

    sorry jj, had to sort the chcikens out, and now gotta go get some corn….

    it would be nice if we could get top before we play the spuds, don’t know if thats poss though, when do chavs play dippers?

    i can see the mancs losing, they often do after CL

  32. raif says:

    i really hope the UTD Chav game ends in a draw,

    we need favours from all over the place to win this league

  33. rico says:

    and a few red cards shown and stretchers carried on and off raif πŸ˜‰

    popping off, back shortly

  41. rico says:

    I listened on 5live and the commentator said Song was injured, please tell me that he was wrong??

    Then, can you believe, family came in to say hello… I missed nearly all of the game 😦

    The heading said I didn’t care how we got them, we got them and that’s the most important, but how many chances did we have??????

    JJ should have been right in his 6-0 prediction from what I have heard..

  42. they do like to test it safari

  43. i know i missed the first half cos couldn’t get away from the outlaws

    family are a pain in the arse sometimes

  44. Erick says:

    Rico the 1st half 3 clear chances second half not many chance but they were reduced to 10 men but in the 94 th minutes we did it Unbelievable Rico joy joy πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  45. Erick says:

  49. Erick says:

  50. rico says:

    and we just couldn’t catch a break after that the ball was alway getting deflected the wrong way

  61. rico says:

    Morning all

    Some of the papers this morning are reporting that the deal for Chamakh has been confirmed – looks like he is def heading to the Emirates…

  62. rico says:
