    This is a tough one to call, should we stick with 5 in midfield to try and dominate the middle of the park, or go to the 4-4-2 we've all been calling for?

    Also, for the first time in what feels like forever, we could have a real struggle to decide who plays in defense with Woodgate, King, Corluka, Hutton, Bale all presumably fit.

    For me i would go with:

    ----------------------Gomes---------------------------
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Hutton----------King----------Woodgate--------Bale
    --------------------------------------------------------
    ---------------------Huddlestone----------------------
    --------------------------------------------------------
    Bentley----------------------------------------Lennon
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    ------------------------Modric-------------------------
    --------------------------------------------------------
    ---------------Bent---------------Pavlyuchenko-------

    Subs: Cesar, Corluka, BAE, Jenas, O'Hara, Dos Santos, Campbell

    Or potentially bring in Jenas over Bent and go to the same formation as played against Bolton.

    i'm thinking something similar to sunday, but bring woody in for corluka (or king if he can't play) and bale left back. perhaps play 4-4-2 with modric playing jus behind pav. Need to go for it. Thats how hull managed to win there, didn't sit back and try to soak up the pressure for 90 mins, need to go out for the win and playing attcking football.

    I hate to say it, but I think we've got to have Jenas in. 2 reasons...

    1) He's been here for so long, that Arseholes have gotten under his skin. He is going to come out firing and super mad, ready to stomp the scum.

    2) It sort of seemed like he hated playing in the teams that Ramos would pick, I think playing under an Englishman will finally light a fire under his a**.

    Sanchez?
    Hutton King Woodgate Chorluka/Bale?
    Bently Jenas Modric Lennon
    Bent/Campbell? Pav

    Kind of tired of Gomes' bull sh**. Although, this week may not be a good time to experiment with a new goal keeper.
    I really hope Bale can play, he'd be instrumental in the attack.

    Gomes
    Hutton Woodgate King Bale
    Huddlestone
    Bentley Jenas O hara
    Modric
    Bent/Pav

    Id leave lennon on the bench so he could come on as an impact sub. O hara likes to get stuck in and the gooners don't like that.

    just go for it and take the game to them, if they get into their stride we are f*cked.

    oh and bale is only banned for 1 game.

    i think definetly modric behind pav with bent as second half sub, it was nice bringing his pace on to pitch in second half

    i wouldnt go for this formation as arsenal will find too many gaps to expliot in the midfieldd......... i would stick with the same formation that played against bolton...............im also hearing ledleys out for this fixture so we need extra defencive cover

    Whatever they're using now is working, but the defence needs to hold its line better.

    Wooders and Charlie need time to settle and Jan we will se another center half in I reckon.

    King has to either step up or be happy with a supporting role when our first choice are injured or suspended.
