Arsenal v WBA: Back to the future

In Arsenal FC, Blog News on September 22, 2009 by Highbury N5 Editor

So its Carling Cup time again.

I was going to give you a rundown of any new faces in the squad but somehow I managed to lose every single word I wrote so I’m going to have to do it another way a bit briefer.

Here’s the team that may line up:





There is the chance that Traore could play in midfield, or Merida may play out on the wing but its very hard to predict, I expect Wilshere to be out on the right side of Vela but again, he could slot into midfield.

Rory Deacon might get a place on the bench after playing his way into the thoughts of Wenger by having a fantastic start to the new season. A name you may not have heard of before.

Gilbert gets the chance to prove his worth again after a real rocky few years that has seen him go from a very promising right back to somewhat of a troublemaker and failing to play to his potential, Senderos will probably pick up the armband – something he has done in previous years – and he will have the experience of Silvestre alongside him.

Randall may well be in his last chance saloon at the club after failing to impress last season and building on his Premiership debut against Sunderand a couple of years back, having a goal ruled out for offside if I remember correctly.

I’m looking forward to this one, it has the ingredients for a very good game and its the only chance some fans get to watch a game at the Grove. For all those going have a goodun’.

More tomorrow.

  1. I think Merida will not play.I think he is away on under 20 duty with Spain..please check…
    Love your blog..I am gooner from India

  2. Merida is on U20 duty.

    Randall needs to prove his worth. I watched him in reserves last monday and he was shocking.

    Looking forward to seeing Vela and would like to see Luke Freeman get a run out. He’s scored 6 goals in 5 games for U18 so far this year.

  3. Fair play guys, I thought he was still here, shame that.
