What Is Our Best Starting XI?

Slowly, slowly Wenger is recovering his players. Rosicky came back and has played some football for us with no set-backs.  Carlos Vela appeared and scored mid-week, so this give Arsene more choices up-front.  Wenger has announced that both Walcott and Arshavin are back and though both may not play this week-end, the squad is looking stronger every week.  We still have Nasri to come back.

Let us assume that all the players return, including Denilson.  What will be the best starting lining up?

The back four will be Sagna, Gallas, Vermaelen and Clichy.  The only person who is vulnerable is Clichy.  If Gael does not cut out his indecisions and errors, then Gibbs should become our left-back.  Wenger has said that his is a future England left-back, I believe if Wenger gave him games, then Capello will take him the World Cup Finals.

Alex Song will be the holding midfielder, there is no argument here and Alex is disciplined enough to hold his position.

Playing just in front of Song will be Fabregas and Rosicky. Both players will give us a lot going forward.  Rosicky is very skilful and when his feet move, the opposition does not know where the ball goes!  If people think this will leave us too exposed, Fabregas is no slouch when it comes to tackling and Rosicky will win his fair share of tackles.  

The front three will be Arshavin, Eduardo and van Persie.

There is nothing to say about Arshavin that has not been written, he is a player who is direct, skilful, scores goals and has great vision.  To be able to see him, Rosicky and Fabregas ply together will amazing for Arsenal fans, but daunting for the opposition.

Robin van Persie needs to play wide on the right, allowing him to turn defenders inside out.  He can cut in from the wing and shoot with his left.  Van Persie is no able to play as the main striker.

Eduardo is a striker, a finisher, a natural goal scorer, he needs to play in the middle and feed-off the chances that the players around him create.

 

So my first XI would be

                   Almunia

Sagna   Gallas Vermaelen Clichy

                 Song

       Rosicky          Fabregas

Van Persie        Eduardo             Arshavin

  1. unbelievable squad

  2. Need add Goal keeper, Center Defence and DMidfield

  3. Can’t disagree with that line up, looks great on paper, although I do think the goalkeeper is very weak at times, not really sure what Wenger see’s in him, must be another performer on the training ground.. as long as Diaby and Eboue remain squad players I’m happy.. 3-nil to the goooooners, GO ON YA GOOOD THING

  4. Bench
    Fabianski, Djourou, Gibbs, Eboue, Nasri, Walcott, Vela

  5. i would go with that too bro…

  6. SOng isn’t good enough. Ramsey is your man there.

  7. me too, i love that squad.

  8. NASRI WILL BE BACK IN OCTOBER.

    My team will look like this: and what it will bring is 1) Experience, 2) Speed,
    3) Hunger 4) Understanding between each other and most of all 5) QUALITY!

    ……………………………………….Almunia………………………………………………

    ……Sagna…………..Gallas…………..Vermaelen…………..Clichy…………..

    …………………………………………….Song…………………………………………..
    …………………….Cesc……………………………………Nasri……………………….

    …………..Rosicky………………………………………………..Arshavin…………..
    …………………………………………Van persie……………………………………

    SUBS:…Fabianski…Eboue…Silvestre…Diaby…Walcott…Bendtner…Eduardo…

    Without a doubt I think we have the best of quality, speed, football and technical players in the Premier league just because of injuries were always limited to the bones but have this team fit for 6 months and will have a huge difference in goals, and points to the rest. The only thing I think we lack a little with is height but with players like Gallas, Vermaelen, Van persie, that should be pretty fine giving Cesc, Nasri, Rosicky, Arshavin with an unstoppable counter attack that no team could survive. Plus with Diaby and Bendtner on the bench too that could add perfectly to the solution of the height problem.

    Players like, Mannone, Djourou, Senderos, Gibbs, Traore, Denilson, Merida, Ramsey, Wilshere, and Vela are all quality players but have all got alot to learn, and we cant afford to drop out experience along with quality.

    Without a doubt THIS SQUAD WILL WIN TROPHIES VERY, VERY SOON, YOU JUST WATCH!

    This team will beat anyone any day any time any place. AND THATS A FACT!!!

    NOW WHO CAN COMPETE WITH A BETTER TEAM THAN THIS, PLEASE ANYONE TO TRY???………………………………..

  9. Messi, you read my mind..i would have totally picked nasri to stay in midfield with rosicky and arshavin supporting van persie..

  10. bade the gooner

    Not that easy …
    I wont deal with goal position for now

    Eboue-Gallas-Vermaelen-Clichy
    Song
    Fabregas Nasri
    Walcott-Van persie-Arshavin

    & to think we have benchside of Eduardo,Bendtner,Rosicky,Diaby,Denilson,Ramsey,
    Wilshere,Sagna & Gibbs!!!! 🙂

  11. For Me I Would Play Nasri , Rosicky , Cesc , Arshavin All Together Whilst RVP Is Out If they Could Stay Fit Aswell As That Diaby And Song Need To Play 2 Gether So My Predicted Xi Will Be …

    Almunia
    Sagna Gallas Verm Clichy
    Song
    Fabregas Diaby

    Nasri Rosicky
    Arshavin
