Fab Four Hlebt Tou-rest At Tom

Fab Four Hlebt Tou-rest At Tom

(or Fab four left to rest at home)

Arsene Wenger has Cesc Fabregas, Alex Hleb, Kolo Toure and Tomas Rosicky will not travel with the rest of the squad to Prague.

The four, all in action at the weekend, have been left behind to rest, as the Gunners look to give other members of the squad an opportunity to play.

This raised the prospect of seeing Denilson starting a game in place of Cesc in midfield, with either Eduardo or Theo starting up front, with the other taking responsibility for the left wing.

As for Kolo's central midfield berth, has Philippe Senderos left the land of the lame, or could we see one of Alex Song, Gilberto or Justin Hoyte assume defensive duties against Slavia?

Tommy guns aint being rested though it's a hamstring prob, any chance we could get a padded bodysuit knocked up for him to play in? or a giant hamster ball or summit? class player for sure but the physio must be sick of the sight of him by now.

i think with the international break coming, Tommy should get a good three week rest and get rid of all these small niggling injuries. he is a class act, and we need him to be at his best if we are to win the league and the cl this term. i love the lad and hope he'll be fit and back to his best soon..

It's a bit of a risk, but there are plenty of players who have been itching for a chance to prove themselves, the likes of Gilberto, Diarra etc should see this as a real chance.

and i hope Arsene plays Bert in the midfield and not at the back, Hoyte can play rightback and Arsene can play Sagna in the centre..

I like Rocky's team except I think we'll use Diaby on the left instead of Eduardo.

With qualification almost sewn up its probably a good idea to give a few a rest.

You know I am right, Eboue doesn't need to play, neither does Song. I would even go as far to say that Bendtner should play and Traore. We are through.
