Does anyone know when Gallas is due back?? We could have serious problems at Chelsea without him or Toure.

Thats good news. Though for this match, i hope Arsene pairs Djourou with Toure. The kid had a decent game against sp*rs and has shown more composure so far than Senderos. Interesting to see if we play RVP and Ade upfront.

So................ do we reckon that the Beast is gonna get a starting role tomorrow? and what about Theo? What with Rosicky out and less of a goal threat without TH14 I reckon he should start too!!!

without rosicky, wenger should start the beast in midfield in this match, so that he gets used to playing there a little bit and then start them there again against chelsea..

scooch we cant risk theo in such an important game, we need to qualify for the next stage, and one mistake by him on the right side and if we conceede because of that, the poor kid will be subject to a lot of unfair criticism by everyone, and i just remembered the way wiltord gave the ball away to vicente for carew to score and knock us out again in europe in 2003..

I think with Wenger's preferrence for 4-5-1 away from home, we will get to see Baptista start (along with Cesc, Gilberto, Hleb and RVP ), which means no start for Theo. I prefer Theo coming on as sub with 20 mins to go, the kid makes things interesting then.

shame abotu rosicky, fingers crossed about Gallas, and lets hope the boys can go to porto and get 3pts, no doubt and through as group leaders.

Hope Djourou starts ahead of Senderos, his performances this season make him the 1st choice back up for Gallas/Toure in my opinion.

I agree, Baptista will probably start. A good game and he could be in with a shout for Sunday too...

Tru say, Djourou should start untill GAllas is back cuz to be fair he has been play really well and sendros should come in gradually cuz he jus came bak from a long injury. i think the BEAST well start against porto and depending on how well he does in that game well determine if he plays against chelski.

I agree that Djourou must start tonight. He looked far more assured against the scum than Senderos has this season that's for sure. I think King Kolo plays better alongside Djourou too.
