Creative Edge Missing vs Lotto Chavs

Creative Edge Missing vs Lotto Chavs

Arsenal could be missing missing their vital creative components as they face Chelsea in a massive clash at the Grove on Sunday.

Ever since Alex Hleb was cynically scythed down by John Carew the Gunners seem to be lacking that creative edge, and rather disappointly, it seems both he & Cesc could be missing against the Lotto Chavs.

Wenger broke the bad news by cushioning the blow somewhat by informing us that Robin van Persie, Matty Flamini & Abou Diaby could make the squad for the game.

"The one who has a realistic chance is Flamini, one who could be in the squad is Van Persie. Diaby could be in the squad as well. We don`t know about Cesc and Hleb."

I hope Denilson starts the game. He can provide the creative spark, and hopefully Rosicky will have a better game as well. We are certainly capable of a better performance than the Boro one, with a couple of changes. Gilberto had the better game, than Diarra, and I think he should start against Chelsea. A good opportunity to put in a cracking performance for the whole team, who let everyone down (including themselves) against Boro.

I would like to see Diaby and Denilson start in the middle.

I agree with vavavoom!! Bert was dreadful, though I agree with Prits that Denilson should start. It wasn't until he came on in the second half that we had any outlets in the middle.

Well, I agree that Gilberto didnt have a good game, but that was a relative comment. Gilberto and Diarra had poor games, but I thought Diarra was poorer.

flamini and diarra did pretty well in the first half against the villains ... albeit that was thanks to hleb .. but perhaps diaby, flamini and diarra in the middle can do well enough i'd hate to see eboue play again after his ridiculous antics at the riverside .. and i'm not sure if walcott can do a good job on the wings against the chavs and bendtner has to be given a chance, he is definitely more creative than adebayor, although if RvP is back having ade and robin together would be great ah what a headache

if Flams is fit, he should line up in a 5-man MF along w/ Rosicky, Diarra, Denilson and (sigh) Eboue. Denilson and Flams should be more offensive while Diarra should play the holding role. If Cesc or Hleb are fit, then it's another story.

As a Hartlepool fan, even I managed to crack a smile and enjoy the boro on sunday! Tuncay ran his absolute puddings off for the full 90 mins, Walcott appearing sooner could well have been the sort of rapid breaks can the Gooners needed to relieve a bit of the pressure! On a more amusing note, I can't actually believe the Gooners bus got lost trying to find the River-dive, it's the only thing for miles around over on the wasteland! Loves it.......

I still don't understand why we're called Chavs. I thought chavs were supposed to be poor people pretending to be rich. -.-. We're a megalomaniac rich club.That's a difference. We're like a tall napoleon. Tottenham is like a midget version of Caligula. ._.

Definately a denilson start partnered by Diarra. And more drifting in from Rosicky probably.
