Chelsea vs Arsenal (Carabao Cup Semi Final 1st Leg)


#81

Just feel like this tie will be done tonight.


#82

Strange that no one noticed our new greek boy on the bench :hipster:


#83

You noticed for us. No need for anyone else to call attention to it. :slight_smile:


#84

I hope he has “Greek Boy” on the back of his shirt


#85

0 confidence when seeing this lineup…

Iwobi and Welbeck behind Laca…what the fuck is that?
Bellerin and Niles as 2 wide player/WB…

Who the fuck is going to supply Laca???

We are now a run-and-gun team???


#86

Ahahah! Yeah! Wenger doesn’t know his name :grimacing:


#87

Super Jacky Wilshere is captain


#88

Who would you play instead ronnie…


#89

How long is Özil out for?


#90

Until he’s sold later this month.


#91

Nah…only Sanchez is leaving this month.


#92

He’s not leaving this month. He’ll wait until summer.


#93

Özil always has a winter break, no one should be surprised to see him out.


#94

The fact that GB, or Greek Boy, is on the bench shows the level of importance this match holds for Wenger.

Perhaps he will do a VDV and score on his debut.


#95

I will play Theo and Laca upfront, 2 forward, counter attack
We don’t have supply anyway (Jack is not Ozil)…

I will play 4 defenseman, not 3
Bellerin back to his natural RB position, Niles (no choice) as LB
Probably I would start Mustafu and Holding as starting CB, in case DM needs someone so I could play Chambers there.

4 midfielders are Welback, Jack, Elneny, and Sanchez

I will try not to lose and go back home to play 2nd leg.

Iwobi broke the team’s rule, should not be on the bench at all.


#96

Greek boy is on the bench because we basically have no other senior players.

18 in that squad and 7 injuries (monreal?), it’s bare bones stuff. Coquelin just departed as well. That in itself is Not a reflection that Wenger isn’t taking this seriously. Such a nonsense argument that one.


#97

If Arsene wasn’t taking it seriously, our team tonight would look very different.


#98

MDC open for this shitshow.

Well it’s good you didn’t because that’s not how it is. Look at my match predictions and how often I’ve bet against Arsenal, I evidently have watched an absolutely huge amount of matches in which I have thought we’d probably lose.

We actually have a good record vs Conte, well certainly good for a record against big teams. I’m not even darkly pessimistic about the game, we could get a result. This doesn’t even register on the scale of impending doom I’ve felt before a great deal of games.

If you stop to think for a second what you’ve said makes no sense but you were blinded by what seemed like an opportunity to indulge in the feeling of superiority.
