Just imagine this scenario: all our players are 100% fit and chomping at the bits. Wouldn’t that be brilliant: a wonderful selection headache to have if you were in Arsene’s shoes!
Who would you choose to play against Pool at home and the Mancs away, and Dortmund in the CL? I reckon there will not be much disagreement about our defence and first choice goal keeper, but for our midfield and in attack it all becomes a little bit less clear.
Now just for the sake of a bit of fun, imagine you are given the option to choose out of our fully fit selection and that this team would have to play the remainder of the season without anybody getting injured any more.
On top of that, you can choose one player from the PL who does not already play for MU, MC, Chavs or Liverpool: who would you choose in your line-up? Ooh there is one more rule Jambon is not allowed to replace our fine first-choice goal keeper. 😉
Well this would be my favourite ‘fully fit line-up plus one PL player’:
And what a bench this would leave us with: Fabianski, Monreal, TV, Jack, Theo, Pod, Rosicky, Arteta, Gnabry etc…. And I would like Arsenal to buy Benteke to add more strength on our bench.
Maybe one day pigs might fly and we can make fully use of the enormous strength within this squad: is it too much to ask?!
Anyway, fine fellow Gooners, what would your season-long, first-11 be and who would you like to add from any PL team other than the Manchester clubs, Chavs or Pool (and feel free to pick your favourite formation as well)?
