    What about Eboue over there? He's played left (LB) before and he'll probably offer more protection to Clichy. Especially since Sagna at CB looks increasingly unlikely.
    I haven't even checked... was Clichy fit? Probably not... probably in pieces on a life support machine somewhere ffs.

    What the hell is going on?! We are a mess.

    I think that with fullbacks being all we have in abundance, we should use them in their optimal positions.

    In all seriousness:

    Almunia
    Eboue Sagna Vermaelen Clichy
    Denilson Diaby
    Nasri
    Walcott Bendtner Rosicky

    What's more Clichy and Diaby are both one booking away from a ban :facepalm2:

    I'm I the only one that feels that all these injury woes point to some sort of disgustingly epic win by Arsenal? Some sort of destiny crap where they pull everything out of the bag? I'd be massively destroyed by such WUM, don't know if I could take it :facepalm2:

    Rosicky is 50-50, apparently, which means he's actually dead/in a coma/under a collapsed, burning mineshift/swallowed a nuclear charge.

    He'll be dead soon.

    I will genuinely roffle at whatever mess we throw onto the field tomorrow.

    Vela to prove a hero?

    We should play some ridiculous pub formation:

    Almunia
    Eboue Sagna Sylvestre Campbell Vermaelen Clichy
    Diaby Nasri
    -
    -
    -
    -
    -
    -
    -
    Walcott ---------------Bendtner

    Ffs :facepalm2:
    I like this formation got Arsenes email?

    That's our best line-up, if Rosicky is fit, but I'm dreading Silvestre playing at CB. Seriously, we might as well rest players for the Spurs game.

    Even Campbell is an injury gamble with a tight hamstring...

    Sorry, just had to! You do sound like Sherringham, stating the bleeding obvious.
    I know :p: I don't think it should be understated how massive it would be.

    Although Barca makes a good point about this being your typical "English team Fighting Spirit" performance by Arsenal.

    Like a last minute Campbell winner? And he "accidentally" takes out Dani Alves in his air punching celebrations?

    Which kit we in?



    Sol's a gooner!

    I can see some embarrassing no-fear, all-grit battling win though. I am going to be sick everywhere.

    Just how nuts would you go if Bendtner scores a late late header to secure a win like at the weekend?
    Or if Nasri went on a mazy run through the Barca defence to slot home past Valdes?
    Or if Denilson scores another of his screamers?
    Or Sol to come on and score from the last corner of the game?

    They're all possible! I'm dreaminggg I hope Barca underestimate the difficulty of the match and play like they did at the end of the first leg

    I would pick Vela to play if Rosicky is out, he's comfortable in the fluid-passing game that we'll need to beat barca and he knows spanish football... I doubt Wenger will start him though

    It would be quite funny if Arsenal won in Stoke-esque fashion by putting everyone bar Bentdner in their own half and having Almunia lump long balls to him, only for Bentdner to get one in like Dossena against Man Utd last season.

    If we lose Rosicky the only creative midfielder we will have left is Nasri. We need Rosicky to be fit.

    Rosicky needs to prove himself and now is his best chance, to try and securing a starting spot in the squad he needs to remind us what he can do and I'm hoping this will drive him on to play tomorrow :/

    I'm not sure if you're allowed to change the squad once you've named it. He wasn't on the list. Must be an injury that has kept him out because I'm sure he would've travelled otherwise.
