10 reasons why we will beat WHU – Starting 11

1) We have Alexis Sanchez.

2) We haven’t lost to WHU since April 2007 a run of 12 games.

3) Despite being WHU’s best start in god knows how long and being our worst, when we win today we will go above them in the table.

4) After spending 2 games glued to the bench Theo must be fit by now

5) WHU are without their best player, Jenkinson

6) WHU have 4 cleans sheets this season, QPR (16th), Leicester (20th), Villa (13th) and Newcastle (10th)

7) We have scored in every away game, apart from Chelsea (1st).

8) Despite what WHU fans and some of the media say Song is not that good, he’s not even half as good as he thinks he is.

9) WHU will try and bully us with a mix of long balls to Caroll and a bit of pace and invention from Sakho, but you cant put lipstick on a pig and make it a supermodel, its WHU !

10) Wenger Knows, win today and hes back in 4th, and the pressure on him to dust off the chequebook lessens, slightly.

Starting 11 – Chesney Debuchy, Per, Monreal, Gibbs, Flamini, Rosicky, Santi, Alexis, Welbeck, Podolski (or maybe Theo, but defiantly not Sanogo)

    As much as I am inclined to agree with several of your predictions; there are many that are thumbing their nose at kharma. And I don´t know what certain brands of Arsenal fans that for some reason seem to secretly hate Alex Song. He is as good or even better as you don´t want him to be. For some reason fellow fans seem to take it as arrogance. The man is quality, as much as you want to hate the facts bear out otherwise. Barca recognized his quality, we all know it would be hard breaking in above a Catalan, West Ham have. Please get a grip…outside of Matic I can´t see another dm as versatile and strong on the ball. You would sit here and type out a reply to tell me you would take Flamini or Arteta before Alex Song and I would tell you that you need committing to a psychiatric facility stat.

    Also you seem about two years off in the attacking assessment of WHU, they do their bit of chucking the ball forward, but it is a bit more method based, say like a Athletico Bilbao, interjected with speed and higher percentage link-up passing.

    The key, is not giving this team any corners, teaching our defenders to maneuver out of situations for clean counter opportunities instead of simply hoofing balls out of bounds so easily. I would submit we stop such literary hubris and highlight our own habitual short-comings and see if these things change. But this 10 reasons series of posts just seem wrong…I´m sure I´m not the first to think it.

    Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year.

    I am a ‘DIE-HARD GUNNER’, but suffice to say that we can never beat the ‘HAMMERS’, bcos of the porousity of our ‘back-four’.
