Chickens ….. Count.
Arsenal did last time we played Watford at home and crashed out a Cup we could and should have won. We had the chance to take a Wembley revenge on WHU for the Trevor Brooking Never Scores With His Head moment which would have been satisfying, especially to those who attended 😦
Many blamed Mr Wenger for the home loss but given the last 15 minutes showed how much better we were than Watford I think the blame lies firmly at the feet of the players.
I am not going to write about Watford, three times a season for them is excessive.
Interlull will affect the selection – Alexis played twice and had to fly back from Venezuela where he assisted two of the 4 goals Chile scored. Some of the other chaps had midweek flights. Mr. Wenger will assess who has been affected by both the games and the travel.
I would like to see this team start:
Bellerin BFG Koscielny Monreal
This team is selected with one aim – pace. Though I cannot see AW being so gung-ho my section should please the Purists.
Walcott should benefit from the tactical discipline of Elneny and concentrate purely on attack. Why make the man run back to defend – he cannot tackle, jockey or make a defensive header so why make him use his energy in our half?
Iwobi? He has been playing so well but is another who has travelled far, having made a sub appearance against Elneny’s Egypt midweek, nonetheless he makes my team.
To have a chance of the title Arsenal have to win all their remaining games, it can be done, we have done it before. The run starts this afternoon.
