Re: Official Arsenal Thread

No it won't. I don't understand why Liverpool were no.1 and we were number 2? Its usually in alphabetical order. As number 1 was drawn out first I thought we had a home tie. :mad:

The draw was clearly rigged!

Round 3 the numbers are Alphabetical and from Round 4 its worked out on how they were drawn out of the hat in the previous round.

For example Arsenal were 1st out in Round 3 against Hull, so Ball 1 in Round 4 would be Arsenal/Hull. As Crystal Palace vs Liverpool/Bolton was the first tie drawn out in the 5th Round they were Ball 1 in the Q/F draw.

Re: Official Arsenal Thread

I am so glad we ended the trophy drought last year. so when we play United on march so l can watch the game with little hope.

Not matter how bad united play when Arsenal game cames along they all turn up so my expectation for that game is very low. and don't forget the curse of old trafford. but then again it football anything can happen

Thanks for clearing it up. :o

Atletico are sniffing at Santi Cazorla. They want to bring him back to Spain in the summer. With his contract expiring the following summer they're confident they can bring him in apparently. Hopefully theres nothing to it.

Are you being serious???

Just because you ain't drawn at home for once in a blue moon don't mean it is rigged....

Besides United are hardly in sparkling form are they.....this ain't the class of 99 or the 2008 vintage you will be facing.

If I were an Arsenal fan I wouldn't be losing any sleep over that draw.

Re: Official Arsenal Thread

It must be nice being a United fan. If your job goes up in smoke, there's always a career in being an extra for the next Planet of the Apes remake.

Law of averages surely says we'll beat them. Don't even bother playing a holding midfielder, let's turn it into an attack versus attack game. All right they've got decent forwards but that defence is begging to be attacked. I'd have enough faith in our back line to stop enough of their attacks.

Team i'd want barring injuries;

Ospina Bellerin Gabriel Koscielny Gibbs (only for his pace and nothing else) Ozil Rosicky Cazorla Walcott Sanchez Welbeck

Just hit em with pace. And get at that giraffe, Smalling. He's about as mobile as Mertesacker on valium. Charrrrrrrrrrrrrrge.

If my memory serves me correctly, the last time you beat United at Old Trafford was 9 years ago. Even Moyes managed to secure a win, which definitely says something. United should be a walk in the park to Arsenal:rolleyes:

Id rather Giroud play instead of Welbeck, purely because of how bad United are at set peices and crosses.

Also no DM? Coquelin has to play. Even though they are playing badly still need to stop Rooney and Di Maria.

Ospina, Bellerin, Gabriel, Kosc, Gibbs : Cazorla, Coquelin, Ozil/Rosicky : Walcott, Giroud, Sanchez

Re: Official Arsenal Thread

Agreed with the other comment about going all attack and abandon the defensive minded against United.

You can play without Defensive Midfielder if all your attacking player put an excellent and constant pressure when United's player got the ball.

The key is just let them keeping the ball between the less dangerous players; like what you pulled against City recently - let Fernandinho and Fernando have the ball and time in the world, but constant pressure on Silva, Kun, Milner etc.

Re: Official Arsenal Thread

I'd rather Welbeck over Walcott at the moment. Sure he scores the odd goal' date=' but he offers absolutely nothing for 90 minutes, especially defensively.[/quote']

Well, he does offer a liability, defensively I mean. It's not precisely nothing at all.
