An idiots guide to Arsenal’s starting XI

So I see on social media the usual cat calls about our starting XI. 

“No Ozil and Sanchez”

“Ox playing at left wing back? Wenger putting square pegs in round holes. And can someone change my nappy?”

“No Ramsey #WengerOut”

“Why no Koscielny?”

Well here is your idiots guide:

1. It is the same back 3 as the FA Cup Final

2. Koscielny is not playing as he is suspended for the first two games of the season. Better to play the back 3 that’ll start v Leicester

3. It is also the same wing backs as what started against Chelsea in the cup final

4. Was Ox a square peg in a round hole then?

5. Kolasinac and Ox are fully fit. Playing Bellerin right back was about getting him match fit in a friendly

6. Ramsey has a niggle. How much would you have moaned if he played today and that niggle became an injury?

7. Ditto Ozil

8. I would rather both players be fully fit for Friday night, rather than play when not 100% today

9. As for Alexis Sanchez, he has only just returned to training

Today’s line up was arguably the strongest we could part out; bar Koscielny and Kolasinac.

The line up does show we are an attacking midfielder and a central midfielder short of a quality squad. Wenger needs to sort it out, and quickly. 

The comments shown by some over the line-up really highlight their lack of knowledge about football. 

We won. We completed the pre-season treble (I jest). Now stop finding any excuse to moan.
