re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - FirstRoundPick
Not that it matters to breakdown QPR's team too much, but it will only help that they will be without maybe their top two midfielders in Leroy Fer (injury) and Joey Barton (suspension). I know, Barton is historically a massive head case, but he is their captain and a fixture in their starting 11 whe...

QPR have lost 6 of their last 7 BPL matches, and are winless at Loftus Road in their last 4 (2 draws, 2 losses) while scoring just 1 goal at home. 3 points an absolute MUST today! Hopefully, Newcastle can at least get a draw at home against the Mancs. Come on you Gunners!...

Arsenal at home to Middlesborough. Assuming they all get through their replays, Liverpool AWAY to Crystal Palace, Manchester United AWAY to either Sheffield United or Preston North End, West Ham AWAY to West Brom, and Stoke City AWAY to Blackburn in the 5th round. Stars are aligning for a retu...

[quote]Szczesny Debuchy-Mertesacker-Koscielny-Gibbs Coquelin-Rosicky Cazorla Walcott-Giroud-Alexis[/quote] If Wenger is ever allowed to pick from a fully healthy squad at their best, the following is what I think our strongest 11 is at the moment. Szczesny Debuchy-Mertesacker-Koscieln...

Considering he made it through 75 minutes against Hull City and was pretty effective making his patented runs and creating a couple of scoring opportunities while in the game, I would fully expect Walcott to be back in the starting 11 against Stoke with Welbeck still another week away from coming ba...

Couple of key players will be missing for Southampton on New Year's. It's already been mentioned in this thread that Morgan Schneiderlin was sent off today against Chelsea and will be suspended. It was also confirmed after their game that right back Nathaniel Clyne will be out of action for a cou...

[quote]Posted Pulling for Spuds and Chelsea on the same match day.[/quote] A draw between the Spuds and the Mancs would do me just fine. That's what I'll be pulling for in that one. Chelsea is already out of reach for us and will most likely win the league anyway, so I have no problem hoping they...

[quote]Ozil would have been massive today. His ability to pop into space and to hit the killer ball on the counter would've been clutch. [/quote] Absolutely. And you can see how much we missed Rambo in a match like today. The Ox was fantastic in his two previous starts at center mid at Galatas...

Bottom line is, our injured players can't get back soon enough. Timeline for each is supposed to be Arteta & Rosicky for QPR (H) match on Dec. 26, Ramsey & Koscielny for West Ham (A) match on Dec. 28, and Özil for Southampton (A) match on Jan. 1. As terrible as Arsenal has been at times in th...

FA just announced that Mario Balotelli is banned for 1 match and given a fine for an offensive Instagram post he made recently. That match just so happens to be Sunday against The Arsenal! Super Mario has been awful all season long, but of course, he would have scored a brace against us this week...

It's also being reported today that Liverpool might be without Lovren on Sunday after he was subbed off at halftime of their Capital One Cup game last night. Sakho is likely to get a rare start for them. At this point, with Lovren's terrible form, I'm not sure that is a better option for them goi...

Based on the Newcastle game alone, it looks like we've got something going with that front three of Welbeck, Giroud and Alexis with Cazorla in behind and The Ox playing centrally while Rambo is out injured. There is a lot of pace and variety in that attack, and when you throw others into the mix lik...

Since nobody else will, I figured I would just go ahead and pay tribute to the man who made me an Arsenal fan ... King Henry! I'm sure many of you Gooners from here in the U.S. probably became fans of the club in much the same way as I did by watching this man who just today called it quits on a bri...
