10 Reasons why we will beat Stoke + starting 11

1) It shows the stupidity of some fans when they plan on abusing a player not even there. The players will do it for Ramsey.

2) Ozil is back after his dead leg/dropped/rested.

3%) If anyone can stop the lanky Crouch its the BFG.

4) With Gibbs and Monreal both out Sagna will move to left back and Jenkinson should come in at right back, say what you like about Jenkinson but this is his kind of game, he will get stuck in and will run all game.

5) The Arsenal Away – Won 8, Drawn 2, Lost 3. Scoring 26 goals.

6) Stoke Home – Won 5, Drawn 6, Lost 2. Scoring just 17 goals.

7) Stoke fans are likely to make a song and dance over Wenger’s 100 red cards, but “They have committed more fouls than any other team in the Premier League (360) and picked up the most cards (58 yellows, three reds)”. *bbc sport*

8) Mark Hughes hated him as a player and hate him as a manager, you kind of get the feeling Wenger doesn’t like him much as well.

9) Stoke are 3 points off the bottom 3 and will be desperate to get anything out of today’s game, desperation leads to mistakes.

10) Wenger Knows – On paper we should destroy Stoke today, but paper doesn’t win games, heart, skill and passion does. He has to send them out to set a fast tempo.

Likely starting 11 – Chesney, Jenks, BFG, Kos, Sagna, Arteta, Jack, Ozil, Santi, Ox, Giroud.



10 Reasons why we will beat Sunderland + Starting 11

1) Dennis Bergkamp will be there after unveiling his statue https://shewore.com/2014/02/21/arsenal-legend-set-for-return/

2) Chesney is back after being rested after only 38 mins mid week.

3%) When Koscielny and the BFG have played together we have never lost a game that we have had 11men on the pitch for 90mins when the game has been played south of Watford at 3pm.

4) Ozil, those slagging him off will soon look very silly, this guy is class when played in his correct number 10 type role. This is the ideal game for him to get back on it.

5) Mannone is back in goal for Sunderland, he will either have a blinder or a stinker, lets hope its the latter.

6) Gibbs is out with a buttock injury, so expect Monreal to show us all the art of playing left-back. What a pain in the arse…

7) It’s been refreshing to see someone but the only scoring off the pitch Giroud leading the line for us. Jury is out on Sanogo, some good touches, seems like he has the confidence and he gave the Liverpool defense a bit of a physical problem. But when it comes to shooting he seems to slightly lose his composure.

8) The Arsenal’s home Prem record -Played 13, won 9, drawn 3, lost 1. Sunderland’s away Prem record – Played 12, won 3, drawn 4, lost 5.

9) We have gone 5 home Prem games without conceding and haven’t lost at home since opening day Vs Villa, Sunderland have had 4 clean sheets in the last 6 games and haven’t lost in the last 6 away games.

10) Wenger knows teams at the bottom of the table can be as dangerous as teams at the top, a point for Sunderland would be a good result for them. We need to come out high tempo from the start.

Predicted starting 11 – Chesney, Sagna, BFG, Kos, Monreal, Jack, Flamini, Santi, Ox, Ozil, Giroud.


10 Reasons why we will beat Fulham + Starting 11

1.. We are playing Fulham, they have lost 14 of the 21 Prem games so far this season.

2.. The BFG and Kos have not lost a game they have both played for 90mins since 1905.

3%. Diaby is ready to make a come back, rumours are he serves up a cracking halftime pie.

4.. We have never lost a home game to Fulham in any competition.

5.. Fulham have the worst goal difference in the Prem an amazing -24 managing only 3 clean sheets this season.

6.. Rosicky is borrowing one of David Pleats sexcase mask’s and is ready to score.

7.. We have let in 1 goal in the last 5 games, Fulham have let in 12.

8.. Wilshere looks like he could be picking up from where Ramsey left things.

9.. Teams that have scored 3 or more goals in one game against Fulham this season…Leicester, Man Utd, Liverpool, West Ham, Everton, Man City, Hull city and Sunderland…could be a landslide..

10.. Wenger Knows, who needs a world class striker, my grandma (87) could bag a brace against this lot.

Starting 11 – Chesney, Sagna, BFG, Kos, Gibbs, Flamini, Wilshere, Santi, Gnarby, Ozil, Giroud (or my nan)
