It was good that Ramsey came out saying tomorrow’s game against the Northern Oilers will be taking seriously by the team. It is a great opportunity to build confidence and momentum and to win another cup, however small it is. We must also guard for the pontential of an embarrassing loss and that’s why the only way of treating this game is ‘a must win’ approach.
A win will do us good, so let’s go for it, and these are the eleven players I expect to start tomorrow:
Defence and GK:
With the Verminator now heavily linked with a move to the Barca bench, and the BFG still not deemed ready, the CB duo is most likely to be Koz and Chambers, with Debuchy and Gibbs as our full backs and Szczesny between the poles.
With Diaby apparently injured – or is that just a rumour? – the central duo should be Flamini-Ramsey. It will be interesting to see who will play in the hole, with Ozil still being rested. Will it be Cazorla, Jack, Rosicky, Ox or Sanchez? I would love to see Sanchez there but he will be needed on the wing. Any of the others will do, but I am going to go for JW10. This is the season for him to break through, and this is the sort of game to announce himself. Come on Jack, don’t let me down.
Sanchez and Ox on the wings with either Sanogo or Campbell in the middle. I am going to go for Sanogo as he can play the ‘Giroud’ role best of all. No doubt, Campbell will get playing time and he might even start instead of Ox, or even Sanogo.
So, my predicted staring eleven for tomorrow is:
Szczesny, Debuchy, Chambers, Koz, Gibbs, Flamini, Ramsey, Jack, Sanchez, Ox and Sanogo.
Come on You Rip Roaring Gunners – Let the Canon Roar! 🙂
