What is more important … some ne’er dowells expressing their dissatisfaction or three points in our quest to remain in the CL?
Had this been a non-match day I would have opened a discussion about the best method of protest but IMO beating Norwich is far more important. All I will say is this – nothing the protesters do will have any effect; nothing will change, nothing.
We go into this game on an unbeaten run of 7 games which under other circumstances would be cause for celebration. We have not lost to Norwich at The Emirates – ever, we have scored 19 goals in our last 4 home games against Norwich. It should bode well.
But, Norwich are desperate for points, relegation is a real possibility with both their close rivals, Sunderland and Newcastle, picking up points. They have to get something from this afternoon and Arsenal should expect a battle.
How should AFC “set out their stall”(E. Gray 1994). We do not have the players for a physical battle so a focus on our strengths of pace and fast-passing will have to be the order of the day.
So … No Giroud. I would like to see Alexis central with Ozil left and Theo right but that won’t happen! I expect to see Welbz upfront.
With all the midfield fit will Ramsey start? Will Mr Wenger pick both Coquelin and Elneny ahead of the inevitable midfield battle ? Will the impressive Iwobi be dropped for Wilshire? Will anyone be dropped for Wilshere?
Your guess has as much merit as mine so – just for once – I make no predictions.
If Arsenal score early – we win.
Short PM today. Sadly, I have little time and a similar amount of inclination 🙂
