re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - FirstRoundPick
I'm like most in believing that this is going to be a great Champions League group to watch, but one I think we have a great chance to win this year. No Lewendowski, no Drogba, etc. But this will be the year we win the group but still draw Bayern Munich in the Round of 16 anyway after Manchester ...

[quote]Count on it. [/quote] If we can just avoid Dortmund & PSG from Pot 2 and Roma from Pot 4, I'm pretty much fine with anything else we might draw. But you know we're going to be in a group with Borussia Dortmund, Athletic Bilbao and Roma!...

I think my stomach is in more knots today than it was before the FA Cup final. Wish I had the same confidence as just about every highly-followed Gooner I also follow on Twitter and those I listen to on podcasts, etc. Everything tells me we're going to turn them over and easily advance, but th...

If Giroud is out for that long, surely Wenger has to bring in another striker. Realistically (not Cavani or Falcao), what could we expect to get? Remy? Bony? Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing Wenger bring in a Wilfred Bony type player. If he's looking for someone most similar to what Giroud doe...

Nervous as I am, when I think back to our game at Goodison toward the end of last season, I do know we will have a much better squad to choose from to get a win than we did on that date. You'll remember that was Ramsey's first game back after his injury, and he didn't even sub into the game until...

It's only Friday, and pregame nervousness is already starting to take over. I know it's because of what happened last year in our big games away from home, but I just can't shake it that Arsenal are going to get turned over tomorrow at Goodison. A win, and this could be an absolutely brilliant st...

I'm desperate for Ozil and Walcott to come back. We'll be such a different team when they do. Hope Gibbs comes back quickly as well because I don't think Monreal is good enough at all. With no other signings considered, I'm thinking our first choice 11 at that point would be: Szczesny Debuchy...

This doesn't really affect us at this time, but it will come next weekend. UK media outlets are now reporting that Ross Barkley has suffered a knee injury in training today and is ruled out of action for at least 6-8 weeks. He'll have a scan in the coming days to assess whether the damage is wors...

Arsenal draws Besiktas in the UCL qualifying draw. First match to be played in Istanbul. Would have preferred we draw Standard Liege or Copenhagen maybe with a trip to Everton to follow that weekend, but oh well. Only 2 players on the entire Besiktas roster that I'm even familiar with. Demba Ba i...

I believe that Arteta-Flamini was the withdrawn partnership when we drew Citeh at the Emirates late in last season. Could see Arsene picking that again, although I hope we really go for it with a lineup like: Szczesny Debuchy, Chambers, Koscielny, Gibbs Arteta, Ramsey Sanchez, Wilshere, Ox Sa...

Another thing that came out of Wenger's press conference today is that he said Theo Walcott would be back in full training with the main group by Aug. 31. This is interesting because I would think that means he could be in the squad for the home game against Manchester City on Sept. 13. Wenger sa...

Everyone remembers Arsenal's run through March and April last year when our title challenge completely collapsed? Manchester United certainly have a favorable start to the season, but their March and April in 2015 is absolutely brutal. Not what you want to see as a United fan late in the year whe...

[quote]So who starts Saturday? Same XI with Poldi and santi on the wings? Gibbo at LB?[/quote] Based on what Wenger said in his presser about everybody from the Norwich game being available for the final, I would think those guys have to be in the 11 based on current form. I'm of the belie...

Saw a tweet after the game (maybe from gunnerblog or arseblog?) that said Podolski's 10 goals he has scored this season have come in just over 1,100 minutes played on the season. If you just consider that 90 minutes is a full game, that's 10 goals in 13 games played! Grea return I would say. Show...
